With all the anti and pro tank posts, I thought this was a valid question to ask. Perhaps I am just curious. Anyways, what does it take for you to get a tank in PvP engagement. This doesn't include getting one for police killing or just having fun driving it around. What does it take for you to get a tank with the goal of blowing up other players?
I'll start. Personally the only 2 times I get a tank is :
1. When people pick on/group up against low levels and other players for zero cause other than to just pick on them because it is "easy". Not because I can't kill them. Because it draws attention away from the person being picked on to myself and I love the attention. Yes I will spawn rape and run these people over until they leave.
2. Sometimes when someone grabs a jet, helo, or tank. Once I get them out of that vehicle I blow my own tank up, or drive it into the ocean. Not a first resort at all. Depends on how much time I want to dedicate to stopping them.
I love a good fire fight and have often taken on an game and/or crew. I do die sometimes, but my KDR is so laughably high most of the time. I have no desire to get a tank when I get ganged up on. I find this the epicenter of fun for me when in freemode.
