Railgun M2 vs Titan M1

Katydid 3 years ago • updated by 0504105298 3 years ago 4
How is it possible for Railgun M2 to one shot kill a Titan M1 with 238 protection (4 MU) and 100% HP? If I'm understanding the Wiki correctly, the max damage, with MU, a Railgun M2 can do is 134.5000 (without boosts).

The reason I ask is because I have a Titan with the above stats and Asida. I was at base healing team mates who were supposedly protecting it. A Wasp + Railgun with the player's rank of Major (so I assume he had Railgun M2) would grab our flag, one shot kill me and leave with the flag. If I was near the flag, he would one shot kill me outside of my range, grab the flag and leave. Not once did he use any supplies (boosts) for his Railgun. Is this possible or am I reading the max stats wrong?

You're not wrong; Railgun M2 can not one-shot kill Titan M1 even if it's fully Micro-Upgraded. It's not likely that the player was using any cheats. Are you sure there were no other player shooting at you? Because sometimes when you lag you don't see other players and you only notice the decrease in your hp. So it's either due to lags or the player was using supplies.
BAD, I'M UNSATISFIED
It was a 4 man team on Serpuhov. We had 2 flag bearers, 1 shaft sniper and me (Asida). I was keeping the shaft in good health and he was doing a fairly good job keeping down the other team. The Wasp+ Railgun killed me, as I described before, 8 times. The other members of the other team never came into our base (15 minute battle). The Wasp was very fast and I didn't always see him in time, especially if I was healing our sniper (which I usually was because he never took cover). Twice, I popped out at him and started to attack, but he was able to out run me, got out of my range and one shot killed me. That many times, I would have seen if he was using supplies...He was not. I didn't notice any lag in that battle, if there was it was negligible. This is why i started researching stats. In previous battles, it took at least 2 shots to kill me. One time, he grabbed the flag, one shot killed me, waited for me to respawn and one shot killed me again. He was standing in front of me when it happened. To the best of my knowledge, this is very accurate accounting.

You said "It's not likely that the player was using any cheats." Why do you say that? If you are trying to tell me that it's not possible to hack tanki (as I have heard other MOD's state) then you don't really know what goes on in battle or you are saying that to keep your job. I still see the "jump tank" hack occasionally. Last time I saw it was about 4 days ago and the speed hack about 2 days ago (the speed hack was being discussed on EN 6 lobby chat about a week ago). The fact that I was constantly being one shot killed by the aforementioned Railgun+ Wasp with no else around (except the sniper I was healing and other team mates capturing the flag) and said tank was not using boosts/supplies, tells me the tank was hacked. I was well protected against shots from across the map (that is unless someone has learned how to shoot through buildings). OK, you are giving the answer you were told to give and I'm sure you're not going to change your mind, so I rest my case. Thank you for answering my question. I agree, it's not possible for an M2 Railgun to one shot an M1 Titan.
Hey, sorry to make you feel that way.
I understand your problem, but please understand that there's nothing we can do except suggesting you to record a video the next time you see something like this happening. If your claims above were supported by a video as proof, the account could be blocked for cheating.
I'm aware of that. I have tried to record while playing a number of times, but it slows down my computer too much and causes it to lag, even after dumping all the caches. For that reason, I never report rule breakers (and there are a lot of them out there). I had suggested an alternate solution to the reporting system that I have seen work on other multiplayer web sites, but the suggestion was not very well received. It doesn't require individual players to make recordings of each battle, nor does it require a percentage of players to report a rule breaker within the game.

One web site I frequent, had become plagued with hackers/bots and players were quitting at an alarming rate. A few months after the new reporting system was instituted, the web site was squeaky clean and remains so. Players started coming back and new players were joining the fun. Not only did they institute a new reporting system, but the Staff, Dev's and Mod's actually played the game (without icons to ID themselves) to experience the problem first hand.

I don't remember how many accounts were deactivated, but it numbered in the millions. Third party web sites located around the world, would activate an account then send in bots to collect in-game currency (Gold Pieces) and other items of value that monsters would drop upon being slewed, to sell on their web site. Players would introduce their own bots to do a certain task until the bots were told to do otherwise.

Some hackers made their low level character invincible so they could fight high level monsters to gain items that would otherwise be unavailable to them until they reached a certain level. There is a buying/selling feature within the game that a player can use to buy and sell game items, using their own GP that they have earned by slewing monsters or from selling items they didn't need or want. The low level player, knowing that they couldn't use the item right away, would sell these items in the game feature to build up their in-game bank account and other players would buy with their own GP. That, in itself, is not breaking the rules, the fact that the player was invincible, was a hack.

On a monthly basis, it was posted on the home page how many accounts were deactivated that month and how many accounts remained active. Bother were changing substantially.We all knew the problem was extreme, and turned out to be worse than we had thought. It took almost a year to come up with the reporting program, but once it was put into place, it worked like a charm. Too bad Tanki can't do the same.
