    It is an acronym that stands for Advanced Combat Optical Gunsights, or simply an optical sight.

    While the appearance of the two types of sight mounted on the gun, within the game is different, the sight picture when aiming is better for both than the iron sights. The Red Dot is my personal favorite. I will post screenshots when I get a minute.

    RANK #1: 35,019 AP (DAZ)
    RANK #2: 27,825 AP (TEDDY)
    RANK #3: 27,069 AP (MJURC2010)
    RANK #10: 22,643 AP (MAVRIKK)
    RANK #30: 12,332 AP (ZDDGGG)
    RANK #53: 6,742 AP (SCORPION)

    Pulled back on battle throttle yesterday morning and stopped playing with six (6) hours remaining, cruising to an easy finish and acquiring 35 weapons parts. Ooh Rah !!!

    I completed a strange Silver League battle against DAZ, this weeks Global winner, @ 08:12 AM. This was followed by a similar battle against ORLIK, the Google Play AT Leader. Both of these opponents should have been in the GOLD LEAGUE, I would expect.

    TOOBAD (17.5 MAGAERA):
    GLOBAL EVENT (11/26/2015) --- RANK #53 (6,742 AP) --- 35 Parts Acquired; 15 Parts To Go.
    SILVER LEAGUE EVENT (DAY #1) --- TBD
    SILVER LEAGUE EVENT (DAY #2) --- TBD
    SILVER LEAGUE EVENT (DAY #3) --- TBD

    Good Luck and Good Hunting !!!

    I finished the Global in 16th place, my cost for the Global was $91. One streak breaking restart, but no losses, and a 545 win streak to the finish. Much better than last weeks 62 loss, 58 Medkit disaster. I will not use the Magaera that I won. Since I am now once again out of Drone Weapons pages, I will be using Diamonds to upgrade primary weapons.

    Drone: 2.95M, with MG 1.62M, HR, 2.02M; SG 2.02M; RL 1.62M
    No Weapons Pages

    Weapons:
    Sniper: Stallion 18.0, 13.85M, 15% upgraded
    Assault: Chainmail, 18.5, 26.35M, 75% upgraded
    Tesla: Aphrodite, 17.5, 17.79M, 80% upgraded
    Heavy: Iron Maiden, 18.5, 40.24M, 100% upgraded

    The Gold League is playing for the Niflheim Heavy, 17.5, 14.75M/22.58M. Yawn.

    No word on the Super VIP, but I don't expect that there is anything interesting up there.

    545 WINS down the stretch is very impressive My Man. Question about the APHRODITE: I know it's an effective weapon but how much headroom (shelf life) do you feel it has ???

    BTW ... you should see these wussies in the Silver League. I'm in 2nd Place with 50 VP and they're all lined up behind me like a toll plaza all the way down to RANK #20 @ 40 VP ... SMH ... the top prize is another IRON SIGHT monstrosity; GLU really should do away with this screwed up prize structure.

    The Aphrodite will probably last through another Tier. At 17.79M, I am only upgraded through level 4. With a larger vault to accommodate Level 5 upgrades (12.55M) it is probably good to go. However, I anticipate that I will probably switch to an 18.5 Tesla if I get the chance, because the upgrades on the 17.5 are so expensive compared to the upgrade costs for the 18.5 weapons.

    I hear you ... did you notice the price drop in the VIP? Sort of resembles the last VIP Event though.

    I just went through the entire IOS leaderboard as well as the membership of the top IOS clans, and didn't see any new weapons. That means either that nobody has bought in, or there is nothing up there of interest.

    I'm not so sure; my gut tells me there's an 18.5 TESLA up there ... we may never know I guess.

    If there is, TOOBAD says the same TESLA will be available later on this week possibly. He's also reminding me that we've only got a few weeks until TIER 18 and all weapons variants need to be accounted for before then ... however there's always the GLU factor.

    As expected, there was another wild finish for the IOS top 90. With 21 minutes to go, I was sitting at Rank #53. Then all hell broke loose.

    At 20:08, I suddenly found myself at Rank #72. Of course, we all know that GLU is going to find a way to gum up the works.

    At 11:20, I started a SR battle, only to have the video lag back with a vengeance. The battle timed out with the spook down to 5% hiding behind the wall.

    After 6 quick battles, I am sitting at Rank #67 with 43 seconds left. I finished at Rank #72 with 7,632 points.

    It may not have been as bad as you think since you had 18 more ranks before you were bumped over 90. The same scenario happened to me during the HEAVY Global and I finished at RANK #77.

    But you always want to be on the safe side LOL At RANK #50 (this week) I had realized that I was safe on the other side of The Great Wall with 6 hours remaining and stopped playing. At the conclusion I was at RANK #53.

    Each event is unique, but as I chart the opponents down the stretch, I can determine who's behind me and who lies ahead; it's almost like a sixth sense.

    **SMILES**

    Good Work !!!

    You are right, it might not have been bad. But you never know, as evident with my initial drop from #53 to #72, a drop of 19 places. A big problem is the fact that GLU has decided only to show the top 30. I have played other games where, in addition to the top 30, they also show the 2-3 players above and below you, as well as the player that is sitting at the major breaks, like the top 90, the top 250, etc.

    But, bottom line is, I got my 35 TESLA parts.

    Yes we have our parts. Silver League DAY #1 is as bizarre as they come. It's more like a chess match than a battlefield. I move 1 space, you move 1 space, I register 3 wins, you register 3 wins and the guy at RANK #1 is moving like a snail ... JEEZ

    I found just the opposite started to happen, albeit, it is only 1 weapon. I have only upgraded my 16.5 TESLA WITCH to 60%. My next upgrade will cost 6.04M diamonds. The 17.5 HEAVY JAHANNAM, started out costing a little over 2M diamonds to upgrade,and now I have upgraded it to 95%. The final JAHANNAM upgrade is only 4.68M.

    I don't know it GLU made a mistake or not, but we will find out with the 17.5 TESLA MAGERA, in the next day or so.
  • amsoft2000amsoft2000 Expert Member New York CityRegistered Users 5,782 Posts
    Well there's two things to consider here. Frist off the WITCH @ 16.5 is a stronger weapon than the JAHANNAM @ 17.5 and secondly the JAHANNAM is a step below the KARMA, which costs a fortune to upgrade past 60%.

    The JOHANNAM tops out at 14.5M, the KARMA 22.58M and the WITCH is at 11.3M but faces much more inferior opponents since the max BASE DEFENSE is only 7.7M. That's the BIG difference between weapons parts won during the Global and VIP Event weapons; VIP Weapons have a longer shelf life.

    Now I believe GLU realized, just as I did, that if the costs kept increasing at the rate it was, it would price most players right out of the game; so I guess maybe GLU has a heart after all. More likely greed dictated their actions.

    Diamonds have no intrinsic value at all unless you're fighting PvP battles to acquire them and to do that, you need an effective weapon. Weapons cost GLU absolutely nothing to provide ... I say give everyone weapons rated at 55.5, a DEFENSE TIER of 50.0 and then turn them loose on each other with plenty of targets and barricades.

    A sort of "Last Man Standing" scenario, if you will.

    The Brigantine is a clone of the Chainmail I already own, but the Gnome is red hot right out of the box. I needed to buy in anyway and I had nothing left to upgrade, so it is worth it to me, even though I only get a single useable Weapon.

    You now have an 18.5 TESLA and an 18.5 HEAVY ... these should take you into the next century so I don't want to hear anymore about acquiring new weapons.

    But then again, you wouldn't be Sir Brad without the latest and greatest blasters available.

    Happiness ALWAYS trumps what's practical ... ENJOY !!!

    You know, I really love it when you walk into a room with your HEAVY and leave everyone on the floor twitching ...

    I may live to regret this, but I am in the process of upgrading one of my laptops (the one I use for work) from Windows 8 to Windows 10. Anyone who has gone down this road with Microsoft knows it can be challenging at times.

    If all goes well, when I get home I'll upgrade my personal laptop.

    News at 11 ...

    OK First issue I need to think about, "the Windows Media Center is not available in Windows 10 and will be uninstalled"; not that I use WMC at work, but I hate when they take things away.

    I am with you on upgrades, I think that they are scary. But I went from Windows 7 to Windows 10 without a hitch. The media stuff is still there, it has just been reorganized.

    AS you knew would happen, I had just the opposite experience upgrading from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro. Ask enough people and you will get conflicting results.

    The upgrade went without a hitch, but I spent days trying to figure out how to get the laptop to boot to a desktop instead of the tablet mode.

    The laptop functioned great for about a month, but now it is crashing at or freezing at the Windows 10 logo screen. So far I have not been able to do a restore. The restore screen finished by reporting that the restore failed, but when it reboots, the laptop says that it was restored.

    The laptop will function correctly for about 20 minutes, then it starts the crashing cycle again.

    Since I am currently working as a trainer, teaching Network+ to AT&T employees, I have been given a dozen laptops for class use and my use, so I have not gone back to troubleshoot my personal laptop.

    Sir Brad ... my support drone just jumped from 680K to 730K in a single upgrade. While I am delighted with the power jump, I am also disappointed (confused) by why GLU would stop short of 740K other than to aggravate me (us); they definitely seem to enjoy that.

    Either way, I feel as if I am about to reach an important milestone *** SMILES *** the important thing is I no longer need to replace the weapons parts after strapping on the 740Ks, I can now concentrate on upgrading the drone weapons themselves.
