The clan was in a gambit match and in the first round we melted our prime evil in about 10 seconds after killing the two wizards. I immediately get this message from one of the players on the other team "HOW TF?" We giggled and agreed to share the formula we were using after the match. We actually ended up losing the match altogether due to messing around and focusing on achievements. After the loss I took a screenshot of my load out and sent it to the player that messaged me. Bottom tree nova bomb with Tractor Cannon Two Blade Barrage Hunters One middle tree Arc Warlock Boop, nova that sticks, keep booping, everyone else use supers. I received the following message back "Lag Switching C**ts" Seriously? So the lesson here is this... think about your load outs. Our method worked for us that day and there are far more ways to do it than what I just described. The point is, just because you didn't put any effort or thought into making sure your weapon perks and subclasses work well together both individually and across the team doesn't automatically make cheaters of the opposing team. [b]Edit:[/b] This post has really gained some traction. I think it is awesome that everyone is sharing their strategies and experiences, however good or bad they may be. This is what the community is supposed to be about and y'all are awesome! For those few that are salty about this post or hold the notion that melting a prime evil goes against the competitive nature of the game, I think that any of us would encourage you to do the following. Take note of the shared methods, get your group together and find one or more that works best for you. Use them well and reap the rewards. I think that the most important thing to remember in this game type is that communication is key. If you are a solo player get on the LFG and get into a chat party. Time your drops with the other teams invasion potential in mind to minimize lost motes. Dedicate one player to hunt the invaders and dedicate another one or two to invade. The last thing you want to see is everyone running around grabbing up motes from under other teammates with no system in place or two people hugging the portal trying to be the first one in.
Came up against a team of 3 max light middle tree arc-locks that consistently melted their Primevals 3 whole games in a row. Until an Ascendent Primeval showed up. They stopped invading and didn't even attack theirs. I already was killed by their own Malfeasance twice so I assume they let us have the round. Cool guys.
