View Full Version : How to be an annoying spy...
A great example is monkey_l.
That massive bridge, how do you expect me to walk the whole length without shooting someone. bloody rediculous :) As a result the enemy offence get a tad annoyed with me constantly tranqulising them. mwuhahaha
Is there a word for this behavoir?
How about sideways tracking?
Whereby when attacking an enemy base you shoot enemy attackers without slowing your movement forward.
Is this lame? Or is it common sense. Im fed up with being called lame and scum and other stuff because when attacking my defensive instincts take over :)
Yeah this debates been done before...im just a rambling lost soul :rolling:
if you cant help yourself just stay in ya base....
nah fps 2 crud on monkey to defend :)
you could ng??? let ya sg do the work :D
It's just the same as a medic shooting on the way past or whatever. Not lame, as long as you don't cry if/when they start getting soldiers to shoot the crap out of you on the way past in retaliation.
yes thats mega lame !
This is what people get confused over, it's not backtracking, it's a passing shot. If everyone would just read the 'definition' more closely, there would be no problem. It's just that some people get infuriated over this and think you're backtracking so end up DM'ing you. So then, they're really pi$$ed off and decide that all who cross the bridge will suffer the same as they're expecting the same kind of thing. It just draws everyone in - viscious cyle.
potshots aint that lame, but i really think tranqing someone is taking it too far, thats even worse than rocketing someone :/
If you dont like the womblers moaning play on the swedish servers. Ping is a bit high , but servers are cool. PB is on some. No moaning , lots of DMing and backtracking :P
Tis a refreshing change (the no moaning part) :E
ooo while im here Siggy TEST!!!"£!"£!"£!"£!"!!!
im surprised you could actually hit someone :P
If i was a soldier and u tried to tranq me i would just make sure everytime u tried to shoot me i would bt ur ass and kill you.
If i was medic i conc, and if i was spy i would tranq u to :)
pop shots aint lame; if u dont want a solly to rocket you, dont pop shot him :P
my tranq shots are quite 1337 :)
and if they had an o solly id jump in the water for cover, or something...its called being able to adapt to the situation :)
i think its well lame, especially on my usual hwguy runs darth
lmao - pot shots :laugh:
What is and what is not an acceptable pot shot then?
LMAO at a tranq pot shot, how about a pyro flame rocket? Maybe a HW AC pot shot, or prehaps a pipe bomb?
Lame? so only a shotgun is acceptable? lol
Gah, what we really need is someone to write a definitive spying guide. Hmmm, oh wait...
its not unacceptable, its just lame, and wont make anyone think any higher of you or your clan, but if thats hte way poepel want to paly, then they should be prepared for the concequences :/
Cool the pot shot debate :|
*warning Personal opinion aproaching*
I dont mind but.....firstly if you shoot then someone will shoot back I tend not to shoot in middle ground anymore because its more hassle than its worth and I normaly say soz if I do cos it gives other people no room to start whining and comlaining.
secondly I think that firing lots of shots sad specialy when one side isnt shooting back. Although I take so much satisfaction winning agsist clans who DM throw grens in NML
I even got grenaded last night near my cap point which is fair play becaise :-
1. we had the cap anyway (even if Evo did cap it :( )
2. Its them wasting the gren wow it slowed down the cap by a full 5 seconds well done your better off saving that gren to try and get yourself another cap.
I do dislike people who go "point" when they die near the cap point it shows that they are totaly bothered by individual score rather than team play (Yes im bothered by personal score myself.....but I know that Im not impressing anyone in a team game If we win then the othere side respects my team me included and I dont need to impress my own clan because they know my ability.
Personal score 0 teamscore 1
End DV8ED thought.
yeah i dont see too many ppl moaning now about "waa u nicked my flag ffs"
which is nice
i agree nessie is a bellend
hey dd! hows teh uni
omg this tops it for thread bumpage
If soeone is playing spy and they want to tranq someone crossing the bridge then that's fine - you just gotta expect the beating that you'll get from pissing people off on public servers.
I don't see any problem with it. If someone was doing it a clan game then fine - it's a waste of a player having a spy (imo) so that's there loss.

Nothing comes close (because I am so sad) to tranquing a sniper from the 2Fort bridge, and finding out that he was clinging to life with only 3 or 4 health points and I've delivered the coup de grace.
Tranq kill > Spaaaaannnnnerkiiiiillll [but only just]
tsk at topping old posts , but aye tis good to get a tranq shot in at long range
-=LOL=- tranq shot that WILL slow him down
Yeh that is pretty damn sweet but someone played their trump card the other day - I got medpacked to death just outside my cap point when I was about to score. Just to sh*t on my shallow grave a sniper quickly whipped up the flag and finished the job.
Medpacked dammit. Of all the possible deaths, getting medpacked puts you in your place alright.
~Dear Old Granny~
Actually, all the 'weak weapon' kills are infinitely more satisfying.
I wonder why, because you know that someone is obviously nearly dead anyway before you came along - I suppose it's a bit like sticking your last 50p in a fruit machine and winning a fiver.
Bingo! (As I irritatingly shout [O.K. Type] after a 4 or 5 person EMP kill)
I got 4 or 5 people EMP kills back in the day.
Then my def would chorus "FFS Ref" and you'd get "The enmy team captured the flag" :(
God bless engineers who clean out their basements regularly.
Saves us attackers so much hassle.
You can shush, I used to be on your team :P
I'm like that defender who slides in for the ball, gets a toe on it and deflects it past his own keeper :P
into the net?
Yes. I'm like Scot Stevens was last night for the first ducks goal, but nothing like him for the Kariya hit (OUCH!).
Personally I f*cking hate server rules, i`ll play by them if they're enforced but if not its fun just to have a free for all, shoot who the hell you want and btrack the flag carrier, hey why not as long as you keep caping for the team :)
Cant say i`ve been a btracking spy reciently but its fun going out as a soldier and killing as many people as possible staying in your own half then running back for a refil then doing it again
Ah, what a post. I will have to tell dd this popped up again. He enjoyed tranquillising people - just because they got slowed down for a while and got so annoyed by it. Which is, i suppose, rather amusing...
Happy memories. ;)
bah didnt even notice it was an old post.
