This, is why i never ask that question, i always ask "did you wake up on the ground".

Usually i get either 1: no i remember the whole thing, or 2: some variation of, "i dont know", "yes i woke up" or " i remember the crash then i was on the ground getting up" all of which mean they had a LOC change.

If you dont remember, sky, ground,sky,ground,sky, ground, treeeeeee! You passed out.

Glad your ok...

Got back from my little jaunt and played a few rounds to get the 150 ont4he Rhoomba. First 3 shots out of it bounced off a Black Prince

I may just run the smaller gun. I was seeing mostly tier 10's with it.

I tried using the big gun for a handful of matches and prefer the stock gun. I think the big gun works great if you are running with a pack of heavies and you stay in the back like a shot-gunner. Pop out, big hit, and then retreat to safety.


For overall versatility I prefer the small gun. Seems to hit/pen anything and that reload is just insane for the damage it does.

Stock gun FTW. Unless you want to spam gold, then the switch is viable.

If there is any angle, the 150 AP just won't pen with any consistency. But that HEAT round, it will damn near pen everytime.

The 128, you can take that to a tier 10 fight and pen regularly.

According to the Oxford English dictionary it means:
Quote:
to understand intuitively or by empathy; to establish rapport with" and "to empathize or communicate sympathetically (with); also, to experience enjoyment

However I thought of it only as a literary reference. Clearly Smithy is a Stranger in a Strange Land

That is precisely how I mean it. If you've not read the book, I highly recommend it, there is much wisdom within.
