    coop would be good. Im going to have to start checking that co-op games have matchmaking before I purchase. I always assume that it is default with co-op, and I have caught out a few times now. Don't understand this friends only...

    Got this today. Looking forward to having a go, although I'm sure I'm going to be absolutely awful. Tactics are not my strong point :redface:

    Have any of you received the decals promised to 'Warhawk' players and 'Starhawk Beta' participants?

    Nope. Had a crack at Co op last night with weakorbit and triggerhappytel was a good laugh absolutely mental and difficult, had to drop to easy.

    Haven't gone online yet, although I plan to tonight. Played through the SP campaign on Hard, and about halfway through it again on Mercenary. But I might have to employ some help via co-op as it's become a real bitch to survive on my own.

    Great fun though.

    Invited you all to the clan. If I've missed anyone, or anyone else would like to join, let me know.

    Sweet, nice one. I've got a few things to do but should be online in a hour or so; hopefully I can stay awake until about 12 or 1.

    That's really disappointing. I assume it's simple a Firefight type scenario? I really thought the campaign was co-op too. Huge missed opportunity.

    I'll stick to team based MP.

    Jeeees Zones needs some balancing.
    First team with a tank, (normally the team with more players) just wins.

    I have a few questions that maybe someone on here can answer:

    1. What is the benefit of manning a beam turret? Do they not track ground vehicles, or are they less accurate unmanned? Also is the flak turret supposed to be better? It costs more to build but doesn't seem any more powerful to me (maybe I just have poor aim).
    2. For the weapons found around the map (of which I've found very few), is there only one per map? I've yet to find any mines.
    3. I used the Spawn on Squad Leader skill for a couple of games but as far as I can tell not a single person spawned on my location. How does this appear on the map, and is it just something people don't know about?
    4. Is there any way of looking at your statistics other than selecting your name on the scoreboard in game?

    Don't point that beard at me, it might go off!

    @scuffpuppies I had the option to download them, and I did, but can't seem to find them in the menus?

    @weakorbit - I'm up for some MP tonight. ^_^ Got Starhawk yesterday.

    @Moshbag - Good questions, I think hat basically the beam turrets only auto-target air targets, however I get destroyed enough by them when driving into peoples bases, but I can't tell if they are manned or not.

    Most weapons are found in various buildings. (i.e. Sniper Rifle > Sniper Tower, Rocket Launcher/Shotgun > Supply Bunker...etc)
  • Deleted user 14 May 2012 12:14:44
    @Architect_z Cool! Want to start off with the horde mode? I'll see if
    preacherman and telminator are on for it again.

    If we get enough people we could even try normal mode!

    Horde mode? Hmmmm sounds interesting. Yeh why not.....(What is horde mode?) lol
  • Deleted user 14 May 2012 12:23:09
    Its one where you have to protect a generator from waves of different enemies. Each turn ups the ante with mixed waves so you need to plan your building drops carefully!

  • Deleted user 14 May 2012 12:39:36

    1. As already mentioned, it's only meant to auto target air support. But I also always get fucked up by them when driving..
    2.Mines/grinder/repair tool/ammo/pistol are scattered around the maps. Not all of these are on every map. EG. Mines are found in the upper middle area of Space, but on Basin I believe there aren't any mines.
    3. There' a green circle around your body at the spawn screen. We were using it last night. But I assume randoms wouldn't notice it. You can even spawn on flying hawks.
    4. Click on your name at the multiplayer menu. Also leaderboards probably.

    As someone who loved warhawk, is this worth a punt?
  • Deleted user 14 May 2012 17:09:06
    @DSR3

    I loved WarHawk, and bought this on impulse at the weekend. I'd say it's definitely a worthy successor. The controls are tighter, but it has the same feel to it. The added tower defence mechanic is inspired imo. It works really well, and looks quite spectacular as buildings rain down around you.

    I started off getting completely mullered but after about 4 hours online over the last few days I can hold my own now, occasionally getting near the top but mostly occupying the middle of the leaderboards :)

    There are a ton of ways to play the game. While there aren't any classes, people do specialise with various skills and tendencies in terms of what they build. I tend to go into either defensive mode ( I play a lot of Zones ) and pepper the place with turrets and the odd repair arm or go stealthy and try and sneak out somewhere quiet to place a new spawn point for the team. Then I try and defend that spawn point, building walls around it etc.

    Highlight so far is destroying an enemy tank by spawning right above them and aiming my hurtling pod right at it as it trundled towards our base. :)
