  1. Awesome \m/ Can't wait for the video.
  2. I haven't played in awhile and have been a bum more than usual lately so hopefully I can get in on some silly challenge action.
  3. I bought Defense Grid on Steam and enjoy it, although once you get a feel for the game, it's basically a waiting game (but I don't mind so much since I play it casually when I want to relax and listen to music). Only other tower defense games I've played have been shitty flash-based ones on the web. I wanna try out Dungeon Defenders at some point though.
  4. Just registered an IRC channel on the Gamesurge network for all things Iron Brigade. Whether it be looking for people to play with, discussing strategies, talking about silly things you've seen, or even just general chat about stuff outside of IB. Anyway, the channel name is #ironbrigade on the server irc.gamesurge.net. If you dunno what client to use, there are quite a few IRC clients out there like mIRC, XChat, Mibbit, HydraIRC and more. It's only me in there right now, and I don't know how many of you will end up joining but I'm sure we could get 5-10 regulars in there. It'll most likely be pretty dead at first but I'm on IRC all day so atleast there'll be *someone* to talk to =P As for the rules of the channel, common sense stuff applies such as: No spamming, flaming/harassing others, etc. If I feel like you're being a nuisance to the people of the channel, I will kick you. If any of the Devs like this idea and wanna take over as the channel owner, go ahead.
  5. We're pretty silly with the text visuals on this forum Anyway, this has been pretty frustrating for me aswell. It's quite hard to gauge the range of the DG's and place them in spots that are both effective AND don't overlap others. Plus there's the whole random people upgrading DG's that you didn't want them to thing. But you can't really keep that from happening.
  6. ....Whoa. Nice find haha.
  7. The ICP on the ridge to the left of the bridge actually doesn't get in your way when you climb over to that Blue lane. As for the DG's, as far as I could tell from the range of each, they didn't overlap (I had the one closest to the Blue base fully upgraded but the one to the left of the lane only at level 1 or 2 for fear of overlapping). Not sure though since nothing got that far lol.
  8. Just thought I'd post in here with some pics of Survival Swamp ICP/DG placements that some might find handy. http://s48.photobucket.com/albums/f211/Confury/Iron Brigade/?start=all It's nearly impossible to try and describe good spots so I decided to take screenies of them during a swamp run. The DG spots near Blue might not be optimal but I think the ICP placement is solid. ICP Pics 4/5/6/7 aren't really needed, but I have them there for VD scrap drops. The Layout pics are just my sniper/MG spots (along with silly sniper placement around Blue for pics 1/2/3). I plan on doing this for Hospital/Settlement aswell. If you think some of these could be moved to a better spot or something, lemme know (along with any good spots for the other 2 maps!).
  9. Very useful info, thanks for figuring this stuff out.
  10. Its way easier to gold with one player, you have enough scrap to place an orange right off the start. A single player is able to get more quality emplacements down quicker as they are not sharing scrap. The true test is to complete the campaign with 4 players running no weapons as you only have enough scrap to place a green at the start. Have you actually gotten gold on Volcano solo while using no trench weapons? I tried for about an hour but couldn't see any way to do it. Jacobs come from both left/right spawns on Wave 3, and iirc you get JUST enough scrap to put down 2 snipers before then but I couldn't find a single good spot for those snipers to get rid of those Jacobs. The only way I was even able to beat the mission was using Smash++ legs (Tried Stun Smash legs too but they do half the damage and it's useless since Jacobs come from both directions). If you have done it, I'd like to hear how =D
  11. Well, I just got done beating all of the Earth missions with no trench weapons. I didn't do the boss fights yet, and I also got gold on every mission except Volcano. I tried 4-5 different setups but I just don't see a way to gold Volcano without using trench weapons. Silver is possible, but I haven't found a good way to deal with Jacobs on that map. As for the boss fights, I'm pretty sure they're all possible to beat using no trench weapons, but ARE impossible to gold. I tried a few different emplacements on Python but the fastest I got was ~84 seconds (Gold is 40 seconds) usinggggg Knockback Shotguns maybe? Tried SSMG's, Mortars, and the shotguns. I dunno if I'll keep trying for Volcano gold...might just move on to trying to gold/beat the Mars missions using no weapons.
  12. I've actually slowly been working on this lately. Just got a 100% run on Refinery using no weapons. Using a Selker with Pierce Snipers, Camo Shotguns, Super Shredder MG's, and Mines (although I only used the PST's and Camo-shotguns for that run). I plan on getting gold on every mission this way (every normal mission, doubt it's possible on the Mars missions).
  13. Aaaaaand done with me, Reverend, Melting Sky, and Baddest. Melting got stuck on long side and had to quit around waaaave 70? Even so, no Volt Droppers showed up afterward and we had like 1-2 Big Willies attack the base once or twice, so I'm definitely sure we would have beaten it even with 4 people (We ended Wave 100 with ~50% health).
