I decided to be one of the pack today and run my Elite Alpha Trooper, mostly because I changed the white stripes to orange and put a gear up raider stock on so I was really liking how it looked. I understand why everyone loves this blaster so much, but I was definitely missing the explosive power of the Magstrikes when people were base rushing. That said I the Elite Alpha Trooper really is a greatly flexible blaster.
My team did have a bit of a derp moment that gave us a good laugh. We had a solid push and cleared what we thought was all of the opposing team, so we grabbed the flag and booked it back to base, already celebrating our victory. That is until we got back to our base and realized our flag was gone and we had just traded flags. Of course we were promptly smashed by the respawning other team and they took their flag back for the victory.
I guess it's time for a video now isn't it? A bit different from the last ones, it's all in first person, so let me know what you guys think!
