I have been in 7 servers in that last hour. In every server, EVERYONE was using a rocket launcher.... this is so gay. Why can't people do more than one thing? They find one thing good and thats all they do... Don't they realize there are others out there who want to enjoy the game too?

Learn to deal with them. I can kill someone with a bryar while they use the RL. It all comes down to skill.

Well this breaks my heart... or at least reminds me why I never ever play on gun servers.

All it takes is to show someone how easy they are to kill.

I have always believed that the way to stop spam is to kill the spammer time and time again without resorting to the tactics the spammer used.

I don't think RL is that bad, 3 shots with pickup and 6 with extra amo, plus the face you can deflect it with push pretty easaly as it travels pretty slow compared to other game's.
Also jumping like a madman works.

Why are you complaining about a rocket launcher? Ever heard of force push? Every rocket they shoot at you can become your rocket going back at him :)

Yeah, RL's only really dangerous to groups. Against individual Jedi's they might as well shoot the missle at themselves cuz that good jedi is going to throw it right back.

I was in a JvM server.
3 mercs using rocket launchers(5 others using other stuff).
me , a friend of mine and 2 other jedis where going arond making mince meat of the mercs. those 3 mercs all fired at our group.

we stared at them for a good second, pushed em all, and pulled them into their own rocket.

It was quite fun.

Holy @$#@@##

A ROCKET LAUNCHER??? If you can't defend vs a ROCKET LAUNCHER, go play Basket Weaving III!

SHEESH!!!

DFA bugs? Complain? Fine. BS not as it was intended? Complain? Good. Using a ground attack to slow your decent, which was OBVOUSLY a bug? Complain? You betcha.

COMPLAIN ABOUT A ROCKET LAUNCHER, A WEAPON FOUND ON JUST ABOUT EVERY FPS?!?!?!

WTF are you doing with this game!?!!?!

Take it back, give it away, and go play Basket Weaving III! No one will shoot Rocket Launchers at you in that game!!!

Really. I have yet to play an FPS in which it was hard to dodge a rocket. It's slightly more difficult if you don't have nifty powers, but you can still run, roll and jump.

Only thing I hate in FFA/gun servers are those damn sentry guns.
It never fails, just as I am about to take someone out, I hear someone drop one right behind me...
Ugh!
Ugh!
Ugh!
Turns and raises saber to chop it in half...
Ugh!
Dead.

I rarely agree with flames but...man...you really nailed it! :D

Well, at least I saw this one coming. There is some truth in his statement - Gun Server spammers have decided to rocket whore instead of Pull-Backstab. The difference? I have 3.

1) Rockets are limited to very few maps (In base, CTF Imperial, CTF Ns Streets, FFA Ns Streets, CTF Yavin, and FFA Yavin. Did I forget any?). That may seem like many, but considering there are over 20 Base Maps in JK2, that's not that many. In addition, ammo is severely limited, just as in any other FPS.

2) It's almost never an instant kill. Sure, one hit can do 100 damage if it hits you directly (and typically half of that is to life), but considering the only easy way to score such a hit is using the difficult-to-master homing feature, that usually won't happen unless you just stand still.

3) It's amazingly easy to counter. Push 2 or higher can push rockets back, Pull 2 or higher can steal the gun right out of his spamming hands, and if all else fails - run him/her out of ammo. :D

Of course, newbies usually die to rockets, but that's a typical phenomena in most FPS games. :p
