View Full Version : just to add... (for Anarchy)

I seen folks were asking for a pause button to be implemented, i'd like maybe a remove player feature? we had three guys in a row last night, who would purposely fail the challenges. It's not like remove player would REALLY be abused because this game is about team work, it'd just ensure that you got just that. I also wanted to add that people were saying in BO Zombies you can have someone tend to the crawler. well if you don't kill the "team bonus" the next wave doesn't spawn.. you can do the same thing really. I have run across a few new players who were really eager to learn the techniques, I know my first game I had helpful players who instructed us on how to do certain tasks. It's just a little bothersome repeating wave 17 because you keep getting immaturity.
naturally, the idea for anarchy is to play with friends.. and I do, but occasionally, it might be just you and a friend and the two extra guns go a long way, especially in the later rounds with multiple bosses.
fantastic game thou. I really wasn't sure what to expect.. but its only left my deck twice.. and for gears :)

I don't have the game as yet, so I have to ask:
Is there no equivalent to Gears' custom match ability? That is, you set up your own lobby then invite your friends in to play. Such custom matches in Horde can be paused (though public ones cannot). There are only public Anarchy games available in Bulletstorm?
Also, don't be too quick to ask for the ability to pause public games. It was added to public Horde games in Gears 2 for awhile, and it was a disaster. You had hosts unexpectedly pausing the game for long periods, host randomly pausing and unpausing the game just to be jerks, and so forth.

yeah you can make a private lobby. it's just the game is so based on team effort you need to HAVE a team effort. it's far different than horde in the aspect everyone can just go off and do their own thing. you can in anarchy as well, it's just not very beneficial. I for one don't really care for the pause button, with a solid team you can run through it fairly quickly. way faster than horde for sure.
for example, the later waves..you get roughly 38 spawns. they spawn in sets of five, and then one TEAM challenge. early on, you can fail the team challenge and still progress. later on, the team challenges become vital to progression. there is a huge bonus for finishing early (getting the necessary points). It only goes to wave "20"... opposed to 50...and with massive more spawns. The next set of spawns only takes place AFTER you've killed the team challenge (even in the middle of the round).
if you're looking for a lone-wolf experience, anarchy is not that.

also, you can bring four friends into the "quick match" as well. just to fully answer your question. but with two people.. it can be a daunting task in the later rounds with multiple bosses (they are only worth 250 solo... 300 for just a base team kill...but you can get really creative and milk them for a ton of points)..so two people each boss can really up your score and get the big early completion bonus.
