You're kind, Dark, but pretty much everything I typed out was a summary of what DrPain taught me. He's the real original Kessnipe hero for me. Anybody who knows me can attest I'm a B- player at best; I just learn what minimal skills I can from the A players. And Battalion is, or used to be (I haven't been in contact with the SWC community at large for a while), some of the best. Oh, makes me think way back in the days of Omisquads and such...
Midge's strategy also works, though I haven't been able to pull it off for two reasons:
1) I can never figure out whether Kessen targets the middle of a building or the bottom corner, and that minimal difference can throw off the trajectory enough to miss the SC.
2) And more importantly, since the instigation of the oh-so-blessed guard reserve (worst thing ever to happen to the game and stay; there were worse things, like shield-kissing and sniper pens, but they went away), I pretty much never find a base, even with no dekas, where Kessen will target a building. There is always
something else on the base that Kessen will target.
Another note: luggabeasts are not necessary for same-level sniping, as others have said. But they do help. No lugga, you have to be dead on. Lugga, there is room for error such that a nick will still take out the SC.
