Thats not good tactics really but its what im forced to do since i cant really handle 1vs1 myself, so i let someone else take the pain and shoot them in the back. Not very heroic but its where our class balance forces us to be right now
Thats the key right there, its easy in huttball cause of all the different levels but the others its more difficult.

Yeah thats exactly it, huttball is the only place where i can get atleast a little defence due to the ramps, jumps and fires

Uh, no. It's because in Huttball, good players know it isn't about killing the enemy. A good Huttball team can virtually ignore a Merc standing on the upper levels. The Merc doesn't have enough firepower to dps down a tank carrying the ball, can't yank him into a fire pit, and can't push him off a distant ramp. And since the Merc doesn't even have enough firepower to dps down a sprinter going a head of the ball carrier, the Merc is irrelevant. Nowadays the Merc can't even stun an enemy crossing a distant firepit. The Merc is useless so he gets the ultimate insult from the enemy team - he is ignored.

W-6 just watch your Vid mate and i say job well done, your play style is just like mine and your aware of things going around you at all times and its good to see..

One thing i noticed tho that will help you out a little more, and i only say this coz i didnt notice it much in that video.. Interrupt more, i saw a few times against healers you just let them cast or channel. but other than that mate great video, good to see another Arsenal merc cleaning up

You went hugged enough as a child were you.

Mercs wont be the best players on the team, but we can do our best to make good out of a bad situation. And i dont know about you but my Merc can take down a ballhandler so you just arnt making the best out of your class.

I kinda agree with you, to a extent. Any decent team still need a couple of dpsers to hold the middle area clean of vermin

NP then also clean up your UI and task bar, made my eyes bleed a little :P there are few things on there that i dont think an Arsenal Merc needs flame unit, FM and blaster sweeping fire (50/50 on this one)

Side note, Im trying to Frap my game play but when i do hit record my game really slows/lags up. i dont think its a hard wear problem though? PC isnt old or lacking.
Are there any other good programs to use for filming game play that i should try?
