I was playing a CTF with Southern Dude on Conduit. I believe we were on opposing teams. So, throughout the course of all the matches on that particular server, there was the same person who was infamous among my team. He would spawn on some high part of his base, get a grizzley, and patrol. In real life, it's smart, but this isn't real life. He would kill anything coming in and out of his base, since the Grizzley is great for dealing with ground vehicles. He got me a few times, until I had enough. I don't know where anyone else on my team went, and didn't care. I got my arsenal of weapons, a jetpack, and a bike. I came to their base from the side (still on Conduit) and immediatley got shot at. I didn't die though. I jumped over a hill and ended up on a small strip of land near the acid sea. I went around until I was in that area of land that's right behind the patrol. (He was on a sniper tower on the metal platform in the back. He also had a bubble shield) He detected me, so what I did was pop out of cover and go back. I was playing with him, which distracted him from my team mates. They were dumb for not going for the flag, but I think Southern Dude was keeping them busy. So while I took cover, I slipped under the platform and went to the right entrance of their base again. Someone from my team destroyed their bubble shield. I got behind a rock and started sniping their auto turrets. After that, I went behind the base again. He saw me again. I had enough of this. I hovered over him, threw some grenades and no scoped him. He died, but it was too late. The enemy scored the winning flag. The point of this is, no other shooting game's multiplayer can do something like this. Starhawk CAN have stealth. It can have better stealth than games like Ghost Recon, which is the main gameplay element of that game. It just depends on how you use it. It  actually seemed more interesting during the match. 

 

There you go Southern

Epic. I have been stealthy before too. Starhawk promotes so many play styles! Today I found myself building beam turrets and repairing them by hand, which is a strategy I haven't done before.

Nice story. I am actually a fan of doing what is smart in real life in this game. Yeah, often times I get totally owned by someone doing something smart like taking the high ground and putting up a force field but it is from moments like this that I learn something.

This game is great in how open the gameplay is. Teamwork always wins but between the skills, weapons and vehicles this game give you lots of options and you can always find a nitch. I tend to act as a decoy or human shield for my team members.

You know guys know how I play at this pont "I'll run in and get rid of the mines." or "I will distract the auto-turrents" or "I will intercept that missle"

This happened the first time. The second time, the guy was actually on my team. I destroyed the towers he was camping on, then team killed him at the end.

Please specify "Starhawk" story next time, so I won't waste time reading.  You owe me a story now.
