It's constant single unit harassment from both sides which effectively drains your power source to the point of trouble. Not to mention you should never, ever use all of your energy in Multiplayer.

I learned this the hard way when fighting brachy in a game of resistance vs ghorkovs. Apparently, human tiger tanks kill human speedies. :awsm:

Brilliant Brons eye that is what you call ownage on such a scale. Ive used serps in the taer campaign to take out flak stations and conquer power stations. I also have to agree when the serps are ai controlled they can be real pains in the ass because of them i once lost 120 wasps inm under 3 minutes because of them :cry:

When you use them to attack the other opponents they can be quite the devils at irritating your opponent.

I'm just wondering... are you referring to me? If so, I even try to dodge them whenever I'm piloting a helo. If I see one of those heading toward me, I will hug the terrain so they can't effectively lock onto me so they can shoot me down. However, that usually does not last very long because the enemy can force you away from the ground by sending in armor to shoot you down. Because of that, you'll run the risk of getting it from the Serps! As a result, the same if you drop back down to the ground again; the enemy armor can then rip you apart. Another perfect example of Catch 22. :roll:

This should explain what a Catch-22 is:

I was banned from using those against my friends.


...I used to send a squad on agression 2 to the other station, and start user-piloted-mass-kamikaze style hounding them. I was amazinlg good at rapidly swapping vehicles.

Why would I even think serps have incredible spammability... Now that's just silly!

Aww banned? That's no fun... did you get to ban their most annoying vehicle too? No fair... unless you're just too good at that game =P

Pff, why not just let the AI units rush the opponent?

Serps... the new Zerg Rush.

... sorry. =D

That sucks looks like some people cant take being owned by others skills. By using serps, rhinos and bronsteijns you own the field and your opponents cant stop you.If you ask me i like all the above vehicles and believe that they should not be banned instead they should be ph34r3d

meh... I prefer not to take the easy way out and use those units. The way I see it, it doesn't show any skill at all. Last time I was able to get multiplayer to work, I was able to keep up a solid defense with just a couple Yangs, and I attacked with my Tekh Traks. Granted, it took forever because I'm on dail-up (DSL isn't available here, and I'm right outside the state's largest city), but still... It takes the fun out of it if you swarm with the serps or shoot at them with a Rhino from B.F.E.

When I can, I love using the Yang to take out either HS's or power stations. They can drop a heap of bombs in 7 seconds, and sometimes the HS moves under them.
