one example is "broken Br's" forum post Original post found: Here ________________________________ There was a person that made a thread today that was saying the MLG weapons are for the less skilled (he used a different word to describe it). Now I was trying to reason but then thers came along saying things like: The original post Complaining: Rockets Plasma Pistol Needlers NONE OF THESE WEAPONS ARE MLG! My response: The weapons in MLG are: battle rifle carbine plasma pistol sniper rockets mauler Where did you get the needler from? Also, they aren't noob weapons. I don't really know why they put the plasma pistol in, not alot of people use it. But I have seen many people use it very effectively. Mainly you have br's and carbine's all over the map, but you have to fight over the power weapons. The pit: sniper and rockets will win you the game if used right. Guardian: sniper and mauler, if you control s3, and have a mauler by s1 then your set. Construct. sniper and rockets, both very effective. Onslaught: mauler is the power weapon , because sniper would be too effective. Same goes for rockets. But in a multi-flag match on this map the mauler is a great weapon to have. His responselasma pistol is a skilless noob weapon, anyone can charge and one-shot, it takes about 5 minutes to learn and 1 more to master. Rockets = strategy? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? ROCKETS WERENT EVEN IN HARDCORE! EVERYONE KNOWS ROCKETS RUIN THE GAME!IF there arent NEEDLES...GOOD! MLG should be about BR , Snipes, grenades and teamwork My response:Therefore not many use the plasma pistol. In a game of KOTH on the pit if someone on your team has the plasma pistol they can sit back charging people with it so the rest of the team can finish him off. Rockets are like a sniper, if you control it the game is yours. They too, require strategy, for example if there is an enemy in the opposite sniper base and you are by rocket hallway you must know where to shoot. If they are by the fence looking object you shoot there. If they are in cover by the 90 degree wall you must shoot in the middle of the opening. Same goes for if you rush and there are multiple opponents, you must know when to shoot. Lastly if you are carrying the rocket you must know where to go, and when to go when carrying it to get kills without being exposed to too many opponents. In the meantime of this happening some happy little camper came in and said: "MLG is a joke in general, seriously, playing games for money? LOL. Yes it may be fun to play, but to watch it is more boring than watching fishing tournaments." There is a pretty good explanation in there, right? I really don't know how to reason with people on these forums anymore. What I mean by all this is people dislike the MLG community because: 1. They do not know much about it. 2. They met someone in matchmaking that was supposedly involved in MLG. 3. They lost a game in the MLG play-list and are venting off their anger. Many of the threads say MLG is stupid or not fun, but there is no explanation at all. It's just some idiot saying "ME NO LIKE MLG!" in all caps. So all you MLG haters out there, read this thread to maybe change your mind about it. Please don't write any comments saying wall of text or that your eyes are bleeding. Thank you.
