Once I got more comfortable, my use of any other heroes dropped off significantly, if nothing else just because it is fun to line up the shot.


Outside of if I have to for a crate or I am insanely bored ... I use Kessen every time. Probably in the area of 97% of my attacks.

When I hit the button for the shot 99% of the time I know before I hit it whether I am going to hit or miss. The other 1 percent I do something completely stupid as hell and don't see a Deka or something dumb like that.

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.


Dammit Phoenix ... he doesn't target EITHER ... lol. PM coming, because I like you.

Number of buildings in the shot won't hurt it. It doesn't lose power based on distance. It is simply hit or miss and knowing what he actually targets.


No argument there, I'm just saying for me that close is better. I guess user-error when I go for distance or maybe not completely understanding his AI in aiming. If no dekas or active troops are on the field, he aims at the nearest building. That's where things get screwy if you ask me. I'd beg to differ in the case of deflections. If his shot is not being deflected then sniping the SC by shooting thru the HQ would be possible. In my experience, I have never been able to do it. I will make some attempts today just out of curiosity but generally I avoid that type of shot.


Did some practice runs, Kessen by himself on the SE edge will take out a SC on the opposite side. I stand corrected on distance but it was a clean straight line to it. I haven't found an example of shooting thru the HQ yet but I did try it with buildings between the SC and where I lined up and got 3 out of 4. The miss was my error though so I'm willing to admit that deflection is just me lining up a hair off. Midge, I'm going to hit you up on advice either way.

Confirmed I can Kessen snipe the SC shooting thru the HQ today. Damn! All those bases I passed up. I have a buffet to attend to now, only crow is on the menu. Thanks Midge!
