Re: Teamwork vs. Individuality In Starhawk

Dec 31, 2012
I know this is an old thread, but.....


I had the WORST teamate yesterday. Well, maybe not the worst. The one guy on my team thought he was the commander because he had the loudest voice.he yelled at my team and told us to not build bunkers, vehicles, or walls. He said it was best just to use outpost spam and turrent spam. When other players started building different things, he destroyed them. Since he told us not to protect our base, and just attack the enemy's with outpost spam, our flag was unprotected. We lost bad.

Solution: let the supert command your team.

Re: Teamwork vs. Individuality In Starhawk

I had a "teammate" like that a while back.

 

He made a fort around our flag on Basin that when I tried to return the enemy flag I couldn't get in to cap it. Of course the build limit was maxed out so I couldn't build something tall enough to easily jump into the flag platform. This was before the Grizzly suit was available by the way.

 

He then screamed at me to figure it out. His master plan was to climb to the top of the bunker and with a little luck and at just the right spot you could hop to an edge of one of the wall sections.

 

Of couse the other team just flew in grabbed our flag, hopped back out with their Hawk and made off with our flag, no problem.

 

When I turned one of our walls into a gate he kicked me from the game. He did me a favor. :smileytongue:

I agree with  CRO NOSM1-BUBA

 

This is how i feel about Starhawk too. There is no incentive for teamwork. The potential is there of course, but LBI doesn't funnel the players towards this goal.

I still strongly feel that the Hawk, as bad **bleep** as it is, is just to high and above every other apsect of the game. Its a game within itself.
And peoples actions at Starhawks release was evidence of this. Gravitating towards more ground servers.

The shame is that there is still so much that can be done to the game as it exists.

Re: Teamwork vs. Individuality In Starhawk

I believe it was on the Christmas Carnage CTF server last night that I was in 3-1/2 rounds where the game ended in a 0-0 draw every time.  It seemed like everyone was more interested in playing it like a TDM game, because even when someone grabbed an enemy flag, they continued to try to fight (and of course died and dropped the flag only a few feet from the flagstand).  I was playing with Squad Leader as my active skill, and there were only a couple of instances where someone used my location as a spawn point.

 

The fourth full mission, I activated Turret Jammer (which rocks, btw), grabbed some prox mines and built myself a Grizzly.  With Turret Jammer active, I was able to sneak in the back way (dropping a full load of R-Secs to set up my escape route) and regularly grabbed the flag, backtracked the way I came in, jumped back in my Grizzly and managed to make it a little further each time before being tracked down and strafed by an enemy hawk.  Still, I was getting no help from my team.

 

On my fifth or sixth run, however, I changed up my strategy a little.  Instead of running in all the way, I dropped on a teammate's spawn as his hawk passed by directly over the enemy flag, grabbed the flag, ran out the back way, built my grizzly on the run and managed to escape.  It was at this point that teammates took notice and started taking out my pursuers, allowing me to score a flag capture.

 

The next run was nearly as successful.  I was killed before I was able to build a Grizzly, but I had carried the flag far enough that a couple of teammates kept it in play long enough for me to get back (again by dropping on a teammate's SL spawn point).  Being the team player that I am, I built myself a Grizzly, caught up to the guy carrying the flag (who either didn't have the Grizzly or didn't have enough Rift to build one), jumped out of my Grizzly and let him have it.  We ended up winning the match 2-0.

 

Teamwork really does rock in Starhawk.  I wish I had a working Mic.  I have the Wireless Stereo headset, but apparently don't have it set up properly somehow, because I have a speaker next to my name, and it shows that I'm talking, but it appears that nobody can hear me.  Either that, or I'm just being ignored.  I guess it could happen since I am a level 27 (nearly 28) unaligned mercenary... :smileysurprised:

Most don't know it but you can use almost any old phone Bluetooth headset. Just in case you have one laying around. Played a few months before I realized this.

I figured you could do that, and I have a couple of old BT headsets around here somewhere.  I'm pretty sure my mic is working, I'm just being ignored.  Of course, I haven't played a 'true' team match yet; I've been spending most of my time in the random 'public' servers with the screaming kids, barking dogs and yes, the singing...  oy vey!

I have dogs that bark too much to leave PTT off...  I don't want to be broadcasting all my frustration, either... too many kids play that don't need to hear that kind of language.  :smileytongue:

yeah i used a jabra bt-125 for years, its the one that came bundled with warhawk and it was awesome at the time.

 

A lot of people's headsets are very quiet BBurgSteve, next time you are in a server with one of us speak up and ask one of us to respond so you know if you have that "quiet" headset issue.
