In case the 20 teammates farming trees, seven shooting a frog hopper at our spawn, and two others trying to lagkun at defenders didn't hear me: Shoot. The. Goddamn. Power Spot.
You can't win offense through kills. You have to get PS breaks to win.
>but if i dont shoot defenders they shoot me halp what do
Defenders have instant respawn, and don't have to worry about their own cost. Attacking defenders (usually) is a waste of time, health, ammo, and other resources.
>but i shoot the ps and it take 1 damage what do
Use shotguns. On offense, if you aren't using the following...
Custom Shotgun Blitz Blaster Omega Blaster Shotgun Burst Fire Bit/Burst Fire chibi circle
...just alt+f4 and let someone that knows what they're doing join. Quad csg is enough for you to easily break a PS solo, but as long as you have at least one of the above on each bot you're helping.
>but i shoot the ps and they shoot me what do
Stop sucking. Learn how to dodge, or use other methods of survival. I'm not going to hold your hand on this one, it should be easy enough to figure out.
>but my hp is low we need healers
No. No no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no. Healers accomplish multiple things, all of which are unproductive for epoch offense.
Teammates sitting under a repair bit aren't helping to keep pressure on the power spot, effectively meaning defense has an easier time defending. Ammo can start to become a problem with prolonged lifespans. Having everyone grouped up in one spot makes TBGs, EVEs, meteors, etc. that much more devastating. It likely wastes wonder drugs that your teammates with actually useful bits (burst fire, propeller, sniping, haku circle) would benefit from.
If you see anyone healing on your offense team, votekick them. If you can't do that, teampillar them. Offense healers cause offense to lose 99.998% of the time. (note to wiz: That means votekick Nyah)
>i see trees i should shoot them
And I should slap you. Drops early on do not help much in epoch. Good things (omega hippo, meteors, hyper shots) don't drop until your team's BP starts to drop.
If you are a dedicated PS breaker, or farming for one, that changes things. Toss your breakers fire pillars, hyper shots, hippos, and hurricane blasts so they have the necessary distractions to help them get the break.
Follow this, and you should win offense every time.
As a defender, you're fucked if offense does their job right. Don't worry though, NFA mostly quit.
The following are things you can do to make the offending team do even more horribly than they probably will, and ensure your victory.
Distractions - This usually means hoppers and wingspam seraphs, or heavily shielded melee. The more people attacking you, the less people attacking the PS. Also, the more people attacking you, the more targets you have. Crowd Control - Bots that can handle multiple targets at once are a huge boon to a defending team as far as repelling attackers is concerned. PS Fortification - Baltheon/Bugsycait shields, Barrier Fields, Undead Bits, Repair Bits, Melfi repair arrows. These are all things that can make your PS that much harder to break. Being annoying - Farm the other team's trees so they can't get items. Drop traps in tunnels. Drop Sniping Units in the enemy spawn. Carpet bomb with SB Pitchers. This kind of goes hand-in-hand with Distractions; whatever you can do to gimp the offenders' assault is beneficial. More to be added later...
Remember: Your PS breaking is the only thing that can make you lose. Beef up your defense bots as much as you want, cost isn't a factor.
