Auto aim is awesome, i use both auto and manual aim it all depends on the situation. In the end it is whatever suits you best. @Rofl, the only reason why you dont like auto aim is because you like hiding XD and they find you too easily.
I also disagree with dancing as scissors, i took on many rock types with my aile strike, well good.

Btw, does anyone know how weapons and attack priorities work? This to me I feel is one of the most crucial aspects of pvp.
If two units rush together and both start to melee, who actually gets damaged and who hits first? From looking at clips it would seem the 1st attacker does 1st damage (eg. a unit charges towards you and begins the swing motion, you try to hit back with your melee 1 but he gets you first), but I am not sure if it is simultaneous, whether the weapons make a difference.
eg. Blitz vs Shining->Both rush together in a straight line and click attack at the same time...who wins? (or is it like a Street Fighter type system..where Shouyuken is priority over all other skills regardless of what time it is activated)
I also know that some specials can override you being hit. For example if a Z Gundam goes up against another Z gundam, and you get hit by a special beam cannon(map effect), you can actually cancel out his attack by activating your own special bean cannon (even if u are in the process of getting hit).
On that topic, anyone else do that annoying dash melee when trading melee hits?
You both melee each other, stunned/knocked down. You melee each other again. Repeat till someone dies. Or one gets knocked down and the other doesn't. Whenever I get in those trades, I ALWAYS seem to DASH then MELEE, which ticks me off, cause that wastes time. I never see my opponent DASH and MELEE, which is really annoying.
every unit has different speeds at which they punch/pull our their beam sabers. There is a technique that is supposed speed it up..but u gotta be standing still to do it. I havent read much about in the taiwan forums because its impractical and I dont play rock types much =)
But if the speeds are close together, then it will be as rofl said ._.
So..it means if you both melee at same time same unit, you will both hit and both fall down? I wish I could test this but it is hard unless on a 1v1 room with a friend (anyone wanna try?^_^)
I believe the dash and melee is based on the unit as well. I think most units do dash before they melee, but I have notice units like Nobel gundam doesnt relaly dash when she flings her ribbon. Also ribbon also has a small AOE meaning it can hit 2 or even 3 enermies at once if they are close enough. Other units like strike dagger can only hit a max of 2 at one go I think.
I cant play rock types due to my computer lag, and cant snipe due to computer lag...so I'm stuck with all scissors units...
Maybe I'll get a Justice when it comes out since it is S rank and rock, but can be a mid/close range shooter ^_^
Although the two above examples works and is efficient
The best way to win in a points battle is...
Beat the least skiller player on the other team (B rank or above since C ranks are not worth it for 2 points)
Since you can kill him and while he will probably only get in a few shots on u, you will rake in a huge point difference in the end
If that opponent is also a good type (eg. they are paper, your scissors) and lower ranked (your A rank and they are B rank)...god save them ^_^
This advice probably only works for average skilled players, as low skilled players will probably be the target themselves, and high skilled players can just kill everything anyway
No. Generally, hit what ur strong against. If everyone does that, everyone covers eachother's backs somewhat....meaning less deaths, more kills.
The problem with everyone killing one guy is that ur pretty much ignoring the rest of the team which would probably be shooting/hitting you in the backs while u hunt for that one guy....
Also, ranks do not matter... thought im not sure about S rank. I've killed countless A rank paper units EASILY...meaning I use one life to kill 2 of theirs... Its really easy with the 30% bonus.
And yes, if u see a unit thats almost dead and you can kill it fast with one or 2 shots, do it.
Also, if you find ppl exploiting the "same type" thing for a team full of rocks, turtle/set up camp in ur spawn and shoot. Rocks generally arnt oriented in long range fighting so they'll have to rush into ur base... that said, u get faster spawns so faster reinforcement and u get to concentrate fire and forces.
