Title: 1v1 Intervention. Who's the bossest sniper?
Post by: TheycallmeDee on 02:12 PM - 04/28/10
This is it dudes. I think it's time to find out  which one of us is the best XIM sniper... or dare I say, teh best snipar the world has ever seen?!?!?!


If you guys want, I think we should do some kind of tournament for fun to see who's really the boss. Just for fun. Lemme know. Maybe we can draw up a bracket if enough of you think you got the skeelz.

Great idea!!! Excepted attendance by ximers is a default by having an xim and "pwning obrien" Lawlz! :P :D

BTW I opened it to the dm8x ladies in the hope that a handful of them that are pretty good @ S&D join in. hope isis joins us, ive heard she can roll as she's intervention 24/7 & frankly... quick scoping is so much easier with a controller hahaha!

if i don't have my xim by that time, can i use my controller?
i'll get my @#$% wooped, but will probably watch every killcam D:
have no communication with my seller, he might have sent it, but i don't know ;(
Title: Re: 1v1 Intervention. Who's the bossest sniper?
Post by: toysrme on 12:14 PM - 04/29/10
sure why not?

i think if a *really* good controller user showed up in a sniping tourney. they would walk away with it anyways.
sniping = controller > xim
Title: Re: 1v1 Intervention. Who's the bossest sniper?
Post by: bdm214 on 12:36 PM - 04/29/10
agreed.  the auto aim is the true master of all of us  :o
Title: Re: 1v1 Intervention. Who's the bossest sniper?
Post by: Shrimpanzee on 01:44 PM - 04/29/10
For a 1v1, maybe... but I believe XIM has an advantage in normal games where long range shots are made quite often.
Title: Re: 1v1 Intervention. Who's the bossest sniper?
Post by: bdm214 on 02:06 PM - 04/29/10
well of course.  I firmly believe the xim (assuming game knowledge and stuff are the same) raises one's skill by a good measure across the board.  of course there are extremes, some amazingly better - like toys and I, and those who can have little increase or none, or are just worse - like shrimp  :o.  haha

but on 1 v 1 sniping, i think anything is possible.   
Title: Re: 1v1 Intervention. Who's the bossest sniper?
Post by: toysrme on 03:25 PM - 04/29/10
idk, im not entirely convinced. im a far better sniper with the controller than the xim. the auto-aim just runs circles around me.
Title: Re: 1v1 Intervention. Who's the bossest sniper?
Post by: paulrules on 03:25 PM - 04/29/10
If someone with the XIM was able to take advantage of the auto-aim he would be a beast.....but the majority of us can't as we come from PC land.
Title: Re: 1v1 Intervention. Who's the bossest sniper?
Post by: toysrme on 03:27 PM - 04/29/10
if you could cut it off, that would be beast LoL!
Title: Re: 1v1 Intervention. Who's the bossest sniper?
Post by: ryan123 on 04:05 PM - 04/29/10
sniping = easier with a controller?
i sure hope not, i snipe 40% of the time lol
i can't hit certain shots because i know i have to move my analog stick so slowly, it'll get me killed in the process
with a mouse, it would be no problem
Title: Re: 1v1 Intervention. Who's the bossest sniper?
Post by: TheycallmeDee on 06:03 PM - 04/29/10
What the?

I quick scope 99% of the time... If anything, the auto aim just ensures that my shots hit my target 95% of the time. In fact, auto aim seems advantageous to me ESPECIALLY when I play with my XIM. Am I missing something here? Toys, better sniper with a controller? I don't get it.

I'm pretty sure I can say that I know how to take full advantage of auto aim. I'm anxious to actually get this tournament started so I can show you guys what's up. :D
Title: Re: 1v1 Intervention. Who's the bossest sniper?
Post by: toysrme on 06:26 PM - 04/29/10
the AA works best with a steady input. not the 3 speeds we tend to use (center, deadzone & 100%)
Title: Re: 1v1 Intervention. Who's the bossest sniper?
Post by: Ub3rn00ber on 11:12 PM - 04/29/10
auto aim rarely helps me.  Sometimes it'll snag on someone hiding that I didn't see and the AA will be a tip off to their location.  I made a config once that was good for sniping.  Auto aim would actually carry my reticle fairly well if I didn't move the mouse, which I usually do just out of habit and a factor of "duh of course that's what you do when you're trying to track a target, usually". 
Title: Re: 1v1 Intervention. Who's the bossest sniper?
Post by: ryan123 on 12:00 AM - 04/30/10
someone should test the aa, i'm sure with everything in a config normal (6700, 10 ingame), then a sens pretty low 1500, 1100 ?
aa should be extremely effective
as long as you're moving your recticle, the aa will keep you locked either just on, or just behind the enemy player

im sure there is a way to make a perfect sniper config, but i dont go on and JUST snipe. i will tinker though, to try and find a perfect adjustment.  it will be SLOW for me though.  So i will probably never use it.

yeah i do love to play with other weapons too
just like quake i loved to mess around in the config, so once my xim arrives i'll be sure to make a nice sniper config (at least, for me, it's all preference right?)

Post by: bdm214 on 11:42 AM - 04/30/10
ya but good is good to me.  one might suite me better, but you can definitely tell between a great config or a sad attempt anyday. the great configs are the ones most people use, even if its not PERFECT because they dont know how to make a better one lol. 

so lets see what you got lol

--im @#$% at making configs btw  ;D

--im @#$% at making configs btw  ;D

i'm one of the nerds who looks up stuff
like i know that lmg's don't lose damage over range w/o a silencer
RPD/AUG are 2 bullets with sp over any range, the deagle with sp at close range, in the head does the same damage as an intervention (with sp) in the stomach/chest/neck

generally random stuff like that :P
i used to look up so many different configs for quake and to the point where at this time i can list a very large amount of commands to help you in a variety of different mods ;(
sad, but helpful
hihi! there's my rant! LOL

ontopic: i love sniping with a controller, i can see only one problem with using a xim, and that's doing drag shots.. but using a xim would help me line up my target for a straight shot before i even scoped in

This is always better when everyone else gets to spectate the 1v1 in progress.  I'm in the middle of 4 AP's right now, but I'd be down for something next weekend

sounds good to me, by then i should have my xim (my seller emailed back and sent off when he claimed, so i should have very soon) and i should have my config setup and comfortable by then :)

I suggest ReadyUp servers for the actual games? Reduce the amount of host advantage.
