Azrael, because of the way you (desperately?) selectively quote me indicates clearly you're not a person to be taken seriously in any kind of argument, so I won't bother.
What the f*ck are you even talking about? If you want to get pissed off that I hold a position you disagree with, have at it. But everyone here can see the contents of this discussion. I didn't selectively quote you, or take anything you said out of context. I quoted exactly the parts I was replying to for the sake of clarity. I wasn't even arguing with you.
It's especially funny because you didn't quote anything I said, so you could avoid addressing all the facts I provided. I gave the actual exact numbers and statistics, not made-up bullsh*t numbers like you did, and you try to play it off like I'm the one that shouldn't be taken seriously
It looks like your true colors are starting to show here. Clearly you were offended by something I said, and you're being a passive-aggressive bitch about it. It's sad to base your entire argument around ad hominem, with no actual facts or truth to speak of, and then claim that you should be taken seriously. At least I only insult people that are objectively wrong, and who invite me to do so by acting like immature asshats first. Luckily you now meet both criteria.
You want to know who can't be taken seriously? Someone who claims that they know it takes 13 to 18 RPGs to destroy a tank, because they did testing to find out. And then when you get called out on it, you reply that you didn't actually do any testing because you're apparently incapable of counting, so you just wrote down "a lot" next to every weapon you tested and decided to make up the numbers later.
It's kind of sad you think you even feel the need to say anything at all when you're clearly out of your depth.
Now allow me to show you what selectively quoting actually looks like, for future reference.
Yeah right, tell us more bro.
We didn't decide to follow the criteria
Right, you didn't follow the very simple criteria of "fire until it blows up" to find out how much you had to fire until it blows up. I guess only a dickhead could be smart enough to figure that much out, eh?
You never did any testing, because the definition of "testing" is clearly lost on you. You can't test how many RPGs it takes to blow up a tank without the tank blowing up, or without even counting the RPGs. Next you can tell us all how it's possible to swim underwater for 10 minutes, which you know because you and your genius girlfriend were testing it on the beach by running around near the water.
It should be obvious how stupidly flawed your approach is when you produced numbers in this thread that are completely wrong. 13 to 18 RPGs, lmfao. Good one.
took loads of RPGs
It took at most 8, far less if you weren't firing at the front like an idiot.
Grenade launcher, too many grenades needed
It took at most 8, far less if you weren't firing at the front like an idiot. Grenade launcher can take down a tank in 4 seconds, more than enough time if you went Off The Radar first.
I guess that's not something you thought of during your supposed "rigorous testing" where you failed to even count the number of projectiles you used. I guess basic arithmetic is tough for someone of your obvious mental aptitude.
I can imagine you went to all the trouble of setting up these tests, and actually blew each tank up, and then wrote down on a piece of paper "too many".
At this point it's obvious that your tests are about as real as your girlfriend and her dual PS3s.
We concluded the best option was sticky bombs in terms of number, but the numbers were still too high
Yeah, 4 sticky bombs is too high. That's about $2000. Oh no!
Maybe planting bombs on specific parts of a tank would be more effective
Yeah, maybe it would, or maybe it wouldn't and you could just put them on the ground. I guess you'd know if you had more than 30 seconds of in-game experience to rely on, eh?
Just to educate you even further, you don't need to plant the f*cking sticky bombs on the tank, or even be particularly close to it with them. Splash damage is all-or-nothing, if the back end of the tank is touching the large blast radius of the sticky bombs then it will be destroyed. Not hard to figure out if you'd actually cared to, but at this point it's clear you don't care about silly things like "facts" and "being right".
$1800 we'd have to pay to blow up a $200 dollar tank.
If you're so hard-pressed for money that this makes a difference to you (I mean that's just a single convenience store robbery), then you shouldn't be worrying about blowing up tanks in the first place. You should be doing jobs so you can actually afford ammunition before you go out picking fights.
we either snipe them or use a tank or two ourselves
Okay. I know that numbers aren't your strong suit, but get this. A tank costs $1,500,000 initial investment, plus $200 per use. That means you're saving $1600 each use (if sticky bombs still cost full price, which is doubtful). Let's be generous and say you play this game every single day, and you go out of your way to destroy another player's tank every day, because you're a really dedicated PKK.
You'd have to do that for over two and a half years straight before the tank would actually pay itself off. Maybe now you can figure out how tanks don't cost "just $200". If $1800 to destroy a tank is such a big deal to you, not only shouldn't you be fighting them, but you shouldn't have wasted all your money on a tank that you obviously couldn't afford in the first place. That $1.5 million would have covered your lifetime combat expenses.
Personally, I'm really not very interested in whatever method you've come up with
That's certainly in stark contrast to "I'd appreciate knowing the method you've come up with". I apologize that I somehow deeply offended you by offering to share said method with you, clearly you're quite in love with being ignorant, and any offers from more experienced players to give you correct information and working tactics is something which should be responded to as hostilely as possible.
Carry on then, you've certainly earned your current level of ability, you may as well keep enjoying it.
