It’s a good laugh and I’m burning through levels like crazy, unlocking stuff I’d written off as never getting to unlock because I’d fallen out with the PVP mode.
So far I’ve only lost 4 rounds, 1 when I played with Mic and the Pubs were getting themselves vaporised by Nuke titans and Ticks and the other three last night playing with three hopeless pubs leading to a failed game.
Really needs team work in the later rounds or the Extractor will get swamped with Nukers and Ronins and you’re basically fucked since, even if you managed to kill everything the Nuke titans still do damage to the Extractor just by dying near it. Watched 50% Extractor health get wiped off as I wiped out 7 nukers, three Ronins and two Tones on my own while the pubs were worrying about Grunts and Stalkers. Stupid pubber twats.
Th eb and flow of the rounds is really important in the late game when they start spamming Ronins and Nukers with Sprinkles of Tones, Scorchers and Legions in there. The Ronins stay mostly in amongst the other titans and use their shock fields to warn you off getting in to the mix with the pack so you’re constantly yoyoing back and forward avoiding them and looking out for a Nuker to go critical while dodging shots from everything else and all the Ticks the Reavers pump out at you.
One of the games with Mic I killed 37 titans on my own and most of that was the last two rounds - I was plowing through the fuckers with the mag launcher in their landing zone before they’d even had chance to scratch their metal balls while the pubs were worrying about the chaff mobs and Mic was culling off the Plasma Drones.
Really fun stuff, especially when you get in to a rhythm and really put your agility to use, using the enemy titans weaknesses to your advantage and ripping through them at choke points.
