I'm referring to when they are maybe 20 feet from ground they do this.
Works easiest if you go up a balloon.

- Before launching, face the direction you want to go
- Then, look straight up and hold W/forward
- When you launch, hold your free look key but keep holding W and staring at the sky
- Use your free look key (normally RMB on PC) to look around and WASD to move around
- "Bounce" off of high altitude areas like canyons and tall buildings and your landing jets will kick in, but because you are looking straight up you will be boosted back into the air a little bit
- If you want to turn, let go of free look and change the direction you're facing for a split second, then look back up at the sky and go back to free look mode while holding W

We need a new legend based on Pilots from Titanfall. Call him Pilot, give him wall-run as passive ability, and make his ultimate a guard-mode Titan that has 30 seconds cooldown, similar to how B.O.B. from Overwatch works.

They're probably not gonna do that given it's a f2p game.
Yeah I'm not holding my breath. Just seems a bit strange to completely kill cosmetic-progress at certain point. You literally can't get any boxes ever again without spending cash. I wish the least they would do is continue with the slower pace indefinitely, not plain 100% stop the progress.

The Battlepass is supposed to be coming in March. If it has the standard dual Free/Paid pathway that we've seen in other passes, then cosmetic progress won't stop completely. But afaik they haven't detailed how it's going to work just yet.

Yeah it really sucks. Like this weekend even people were using the ping system and helping out today I've had multiple instances where people leave before the jump even.
Yeah, we really seemed to reach Fortnite levels of "the match isn't going where I wanted to go for my challenges so I'll just leave altogether to be more time effective". It's a fucking Battle Royale, people are supposed to fight, and yet if you pick the "wrong" location, can't revive in a split second or simply choose the class they wanted, it's time to quit. I'll just never understand this, the whole point of a BR game is adapting to everchanging situations. There are no two matches alike, you're always going to rotate the place you drop, the enemies you find, the loot you get, the classes, the scenarios... everything changes all the time, which makes it far more unpredictable and exciting that regular multiplayer games (I played 1000+ hours of Rocket League, like 2000 between COD multiplayers, etc. so I don't dislike that at all, it's just much more streamlined in a way). Why do people have to leave when not everything is exactly as they planned? There is no challenges to do yet, even, besides the achievements which are still feasible regardless of where you drop, except maybe for the one where you need to pick up a fully equipped gold gun (which you still may be able to do by killing a dude who has one). No idea why such toxic behavious already got so popular here.

Dropped my mouse sensitivity to 1.0 (from 1.5) last night and I feel like it made a huge difference. I think I was averaging 3-4 kills per game after the change. I did get some fantastic rando squad mates in the last games too, though.

Ok, they seriously need to make the player death "crates" (that have all their items in it) have no collision on them.

I literally just lost a match because one of my team mates died while he was above me sitting on a little clifl perch, then his box ended up right ont op of me and I was unable to move and ended up dying because of it.
I agree. I've gotten stuck in a room a couple of times due to this. It's an odd oversight considering how polished and well thought out the rest of the game is.

I also wish you didn't have to hold E to open it.

Playing Wraith. Pinned down on all sides in a hut on a hill by three players. They’re in good cover working their way up. I’ve got no grenades to flush em out. No teammates left. I’m severely injured.

I thought: Fuck it.

I went invisible, slid down the hill towards one of the baddies, Mirage. I turned visible just as I slid past him. He panicked and - still sliding - I shot him. Bamboozled!

At the bottom of the hill, I ducked off to the side to heal up. Immediately got shot by a second team turning a corner. 😄

The battle pass is gonna be the primary progression system for cosmetics, it just isn’t out yet.

I am fine with whoever is on my team as long as they ping shit and indicate where they're going. Really all you need to do to be an enjoyable teammate for me.

I don't care about solos, duos or quads. All I want is a Mercenary playlist. I don't have a good team or MLG friends so 90% of my matches I'm stuck with horrible teammates. I'd like to not fight against superorganized teams when that's the case, let everyone play with random peeps.

That’s always nice, too. But people keep assuming I’m getting partied up with low level players when I go into detail about bad performances from players close to level 30 on characters they clearly have playtime on. Bad games happen, sure. But it’s not always the “noobs” playing like shit. Lol.

Had a perplexing win tonight where the final circle was at the airbase, I think it was a 2 v 1 (advantage us) and we were pinging a wraith on the other side (on the extended pier) and we were just suddenly crowned champions. I'd like to think we spooked her into sliding off the edge into the water. xD

I will keep playing, people just suck, I will leave and move on to the next. If they show signs of being decent I stay but most of the time I leave because they have poor thinking.
Don't leave until youre tags can't be picked up or your squad gets wiped. Its obnoxious the number of times I bail my teammates out of a fight, go to grab their tags ans they just leave because they assume I cant win a firefight.

Can you even ever see yourself as the Champion of a match, or do you always see some other squad so everyone gets a chance at the champion slayer bonus?
Because goddamn I've had some stellar wins but never get called Champion the round after. Bums me out lol.

What is the requirement for being Champion, then? Just have a higher score in the round before than anyone joining the new game?

Anyone here effective with Caustic? I'm trying to figure out how to use him correctly but his ult has not been doing that great for me, only my team mates complaining they can't see.

Haven't used him, but one really legit thing I've seen is just... leaving his barrel in that mountain corridor area. If it's right around the corner you'll never see it coming.

He’s situational as hell and I’ve only ever seen him used effectively once. And it was during the final circle where we absolutely had to be in doors. I feel like unless people NEED to come to you, his kit is lame. At least from what I’ve seen.

I think thats just unlucky. Most of my wins I end up being the champion squad in the next. You'll see it yourself when it happens.

Not sure if its a random pick from winners or if its whoever had the highest score + won their last match.
