Title: New to TMA, been with TMX since launch.
Post by Silence_Sings on 10/22/15 at 22:58:48
Hey guys, I'm new to TMA but I'm definitely not new to the series. I own and have completed every twisted metal excluding head on and small brawl. I've been with TMX since launch day, unfortunately I was forced out because of the issues with the custom skins. I discovered a week ago that I was able to play again online and have put a couple of days into it, however I've noticed a drastic difference in my skill level and those that still play. I went from a 90.5 skill to 80.4 in the two days I've played. I'm really excited to play again and I'm going to make it online as much as I can, however training and tips would greatly be appreciated. Especially if anyone is willing to give me advice specifics regarding warthog. For whatever reason I just became attached to him, probably in part because I spent hours customizing skins for him after all the excitement from earning him. Anyway, my psn is Silence_Sings.  Feel free to add me and thanks in advance!

-P.S. I already posted this in reply to the "Hook up with a vet" thread. I'm not trying to be annoying, I'm just unsure of how active the alliance is anymore, with the decline and loss of support for this game in general..

Skill # is meaningless but,...

If you play Team Deathmatch the chances of unfair teams is high so if the teams look unbalanced at the start you may as well leave the match.

If you play DM don't worry about getting 1st place, just try to get in the top 3 if you're concerned about skill dropping (but like I said it's a meaningless #). An easy way to success is to focus your attention on average skilled players rather than chasing someone who plays all the time and knows where all the healths are.

with Warthog avoid getting front damage when your primary Special is active as your damage received will double.
That being said keep in mind that the Reverse Crush special is very helpful as opponents do not often anticipate the reverse crush.
Use the secondary shockwave special on a group of vehicles. All that damage will add up. Also keep in mind that you don't need to fully charge the shockwave, so never charge too long if unnecessary. Against a fast vehicle short-charged shockwaves comes handy.
generally I recommend the rockets sidearms but there are times you may want mounted guns. If there is a Juggernaut on the field its good to use WH w/ mounted guns and spam juggs with that while shooting off missiles/using your specials.

TMA is not too active, btw, but there are a few who visit, being either TMBO or TMX fans.

Also, I'd recommend you get Small Brawl one of these days. Fun game!

You should totally get Small Brawl. That is a fun little gem of the series, and probably my favorite of the ps1 era games.
