Ty for the kind comments ^_^

1. I agree monxy blows. HARD.
2. HI BEAGLE. Didnt mean to say biplane was easy - no matchup really is, but I find well played bombers/explodets a LOT harder to deal with. Loopies are my main source of kills too, but I guess its that way for everybody since 90% of players ingame are demo-users :P
3. Sure Eso, I'll update and write my thoughts about that! It'll have to wait until tomorrow though.. my lazy ass just got hold of Metroid Prime 3 for Wii and I. MUST. PLAY.

Very nice guide. I read most of it.
Would be nice to see more guides, all organized somewhere. Would also be nice to see more screenshots and diagrams. Pretty pictures help keep readers' attention.

Makes me wanna play some loopy!

Great guide eth, really nice read, all though most of the people playing a bit longer know this. btw you just made those demo ****ers even better if they read this and yeah, tracker is underpowered in your guide, tracker is weaker at DPS but it uses less energy and you usually have a has a steady stream of missiles that just make people want to break something

Kuja write how to lag win at heavy armor explo

Point at choke, press f, repeat.

I guess you will have to pick a different plane again since I just finished the bomber one.

The new Explodet guide reminded me this one isn't stickied or anything and is languishing in the past, which is a crime. Bumped.

I wanted to use this as reference when I was writing my guide and had to go to page 3 to find it All these new clans starting threads means that helpful threads like these get lost in time.

Maybe we can get a "Strategy" subforum where people can post guides and talk about strategies or whatever. Or the guides could get stickied

To anyone with doubts about this guide's accuracy, let me give my testimonial. Before this guide, I was averaging about a 1.4 ratio on loopy, in the top half of the rankings on most servers, and in the clan JC. Afterwards, I've been sporting a 2.0 ratio, at or just below the top in most games, and was invited to join fLb$. So the man has some good advice!

I might have to try some changes!
I have always used double fire, repair drone and turbo charger and i think its a good combo because if you get into difficulty you can get away and with the faster speed of your energy regeneration your health will come back quicker!
seems to have been working better for me as i have been improving but ill try your advice on the heavy armour and see how it goes!

Evidently, you arent very good at the loopy.
Tracking is much better than df with the emp.


Btw, loopy is best for 1 on 1 except against bombers.
Other than that, great guide

Great guide.

Just wanna comment on one thing


Loopy may not be a good bomb runner, but it's amazing as a wingman. All you have to do is follow the bomb runner from a safe distance (By safe distance I mean away from enemy fire, but close enough to avoid the bomb getting defused) and when the bomb runner is about to die, afterburn, catch it and throw. I have bombed like that thousands of times.

The loopy isn't always a bad bomb runner. With flexible wings, the loopy can hit the base from very far away. I once hit the base on lostcity from the middle of the map while using a flexible wings loopy.

There were 7 people on the other team, but I got lucky and nobody was near the base to block my bomb.

How does one get paid? Did someone come and say "Psst guy, if you play with our keyboard and say it every now and then, you'll get paid" or something?

just wanted to mention something - if heavy armor is good for the loopy in the tbd and other multiple player modes....Flexi wings is imho the most powerfull perk for the duel mode, because it let's you easily outfight the opponent, who doesn't use this perk, simply because your turn rate is considerably higher - and thus you have a higher chance to emp the opponent first.

Ya Flexible/Reverse is most likely the best setup for dueling Loopies.. I don't think it's that cool for any other matchup though. I haven't really dueled all that much, but I'll try to remember adding in a bit more on that as I get more experience.

Hi Tosconi,

You are already aware the impact Flexi has from our practises but do realise that it really isn't the most powerful perk - it is merely a whole different playing style. I exposed you to some of its tricks but I was pleasantly surprised from a practise duel round with Luke just how well loopy repair-drone can be played.

eth,

As per above, flexi is ultimately a different playing style. My flexi can't withstand the punishment as a heavy would but I can easily rack up far more kills whilst being as cunning as a fox who's just been appointed Professor of Cunning at Oxford University.

There's a whole arena of flexi-action which I plan on detailing after the loopy tournament has finished.

Regards,
Alter

well it is definitely a different playing style. Tbh, after the whole duel things gets to its end, I'm pretty sure, I'll come back to heavy armor.

repare drone in tdb, well really don't know. In a normal match - you either get killed right away (like when explodet crushes you into a wall), or you take the health after killing someone (because the heavy armor was on).

still I actually feel myself quite comfortable without the HA, since I enjoyed the demo for a pretty long time in the past and got used to not having any special perks.
