  1. Taking a break

    We I am reviving this post again as, once again I am burned out on TD. I am still looking forward to TD2 and will get the standard version at launch. But for now, I am playing Warframe. I think having the survival based shield pushed me over the edge as (for me) that is very hard content that I really don't enjoy. I do plan to do it, but for now, I am taking a long break. ...gene
  2. As you say, we are used to it. And I still think the great added content should have a price tag, but hey - that's me. ...gene
  3. Preorder

    Wholly crap, the phoenix package is $250!
  4. Preorder

    OK, the packages are OK, I am just too cheap to buy (or even want) the extras. ...gene
  5. Preorder

    I love TD, but at $120 - no thanks. That is an insane price, I don't care what they offer. Maybe I am done with TD. ...gene
  6. Phoenix Shield

    We are in the US - we'll figure out something. Thanks. We plan to start working on it this week. ...gene
  7. Phoenix Shield

    I have just about 20 min in survival. While I want this shield, maybe not... Hey RimBlock - my son and I would gladly tag along if your avail Thursdays. ...gene
  8. Taking down the hunters.

    Boy do I know the feeling! ...gene
  9. Good armor build

    Have you rejoined? Or is this your first rodeo? Once you are 30, check the rewards vendor. Maybe you'll get the standard gearsets, then again maybe not. Still worth a look. ...gene
  10. Taking down the hunters.

    I did not know the count of hunters - thanks. On Hunter melee, yep - if you wait until the axe/knife is drawn, you are dead. You must jump as he puts away his rifle and you must jump at least 2m or he just turns and wacks. ...gene
  11. Who dies first ?.

    I am pretty much in line with @RimBlock and @Oh. daesu except for the Grenadiers with launchers - they die first! I really hate those guys. ...gene
  12. This was hard to title - What I am getting at, if you bought all the expansions (I did), what parts of TD do you enjoy and what parts do you not play? For me, I think it's easier to describe what I don't do first - PvP, survival, last stand. On PvP, I do venture into the DZ much more often now that I have a fully optimized nomad. But not for PvP, I clear landmarks, do collectibles, and the dailies/weeklies. I do not do skirmish, or last stand. I did try both out, but as I don't really have a regular 4-toon group (or 8-toon for that matter) it simply does not appeal to me. On Survival - I have ventured in a few times, but never really got into it. I like the premise, but not the format (rando toons and no real solo ability). I do plan to do more in Survival, but finishing underground is next on my priority list. What I really like! boss runs - Mindless, simple, gratifying. dailies/weeklies - Just as above. HVT - mostly just the weeklies, but they are all fun. incursions - I finally have tried all of them. I really like them, but wow, very hard. I have completed two. resistance - We are borg.... I like all of these. Everything about them. legendary content - Just to push my limits when fully awake and twitchy. global events - Though, I have no need for GE credits anymore, the game play is way fun and LOL. underground - I love the whole premise of mission oriented close combat and random hunters. So there you go. What do you play and not play with TD? ...gene
  13. Warframe

    Yeah, but I see TD2 as a new game with familiar controls/framework. TD2 will be alot different than TD. Now warframe is a completely different animal and yes, its got a steep learning curve. Luckily for me, my son has several end game toons and the knowledge to make learning a little easier. Even though I am only 30 or so hours into it, I recommend it. It's amazing what a small 250 person studio can really do. And I do plan to spend real money to support them. Another fun way to loose hours and hours of sleep ...gene
  14. Taking down the hunters.

    Nomad is really good for solo. My fully optimized nomad has 7K firearms, 6K stamina (608K toughness). I use the bullfrog and showstopper. For me, in the underground, hunters show right after or just before the section is cleared or starts. At the end of a section, if the GPS does not show up fairly instantly, there will be hunters. And there is always the disrupter eliminating skills for a while. When soloing, I have only seen hunters in pairs (in groups - 3 at a time). I try and find a spot where I cannot get flanked and where there are enough obstacles the hunters cannot easily close. This has to be a constant when you play, know where to make a stand against hunters anytime. I also keep shock grenades handy as I generally don't use grenades very much. They buy time to get set. If the bullfrog does not take the hunter with one clip, I switch to the showstopper as this is much faster than reloading. As the bullfrog is very accurate but hard to control, I use kinda short bursts very quickly. In general I take the hunter with one clip, but not always. Once the hunter closes within say 3m just whale on him. At 1m he'll try and melee (you'll see him put away his rifle) - dive out of the way, he recovers fairly slowly, again a chance to whale. As I use a controller - I can beat the hunters more often than not, but it's a iffy proposition. ...gene
