William, I need some help with this one. I just can't get it to work. For some reason I get a crash-to-desktop every time I try to initiate WASD mode.

Any ideas?


The graphics switch required to engage WASD mode is a lot more intensive than normal mode, so if you are having trouble maybe trying getting the newest drivers from your vendor or perhaps buy a new graphics card?

Good luck! Smile


Confirming i had the same problem but upgrading my graphics card did the trick. Flanking away!

Ditto. Also, there's no option listed to configure toggling WASD.

My first impression, n00b that I am, is the OP was more a joke (with the following post in support of said joke).Razz

When I shotted the starboard (port?) side of my enemy's ship during flanking I accidentally the whole blasters and my ship melted in half.

This is one of the funniest posts i read in a long time...

Also, for those of you who want to know how to trap people in dead end systems, the inside wall of a stargate is its weakest point. You can actually destroy a gate with 2 frigates, especially if your using tech II small lasers.

Mint!

If you recently purchased an EVE account with access to carriers, this effect is for carriers and dreadnoughts and will garantee a successful solo engagement of enemies ranging from the 20-50 man numbers. Simply burn away from the station 10km and proceed to enter fast paste WADS mode.

I tried to kill a computer pirate with this, but i crashed and when I logged back on I had lost my omen and the 3x tech two miners. Are you sure you described flanking correctly?

Hey..

I have a problem with WASD mode.. Everytime i try to switc to it, eve crashes.. i have a new graphic card, gtx i belive, and the newest drivers i think.. and yet it crashes everytime.. I dont know if its a error in eve, or maybe Directx or something? I have made a petition to check if its a possible bug.. will let you know when i get a response from a gamemaster..

I find it hard to use the flank tactic though, but it seems like i do more damage overall with flanking.. i have gotten more of the wrecking hits i think, but i have to do some more testing.. or maybe just get better at flankingVery Happy

i cant find that brotherhood scan launcher, and when asking in help channel, someone mentioned i might be looking for a sister launcherShocked i might have lost the meaning in that context, but why would i need a sister launcher? i love my sistersugh

and is the a module that will allow me to check how much capacitor the pirates have left, as i have no idea about how much capacitor my turrets damages on themugh

on further reading of this thread I think it is a joke? Could someone from ccp please clarify this? If yes, i would like my omen replaced and william demeo given a 2-week ban. It is not funny.

A joke? how? its a description of a fighting tactic?

i have tried a few times now, it just doesn't work. And the replies in this thread lead me to believe it's a joke. I hope you haven't lost anything yet, but i did. It's a shame that a forum gets used to pull pranks on fellow players. I guess William is a people pirate. The forums would be much better if people pirates would only be allowed to post on thir own forum subsection, the crime & punishment. i am considering petitioning my loss and asking ccp to ban William demeo. Stuff like this leads to player loss and thus ccp losing a lot of money.

Post the killmail up here. Those who are familar with them will be able to spot the subtle clues that prove your story. It'd go a long way towards getting Demeo banned.

Works perfectly for me. Using CTRL + Q and then WASD to get at 90 degree angle is very very fast, much faster than flying normally. I downed a pirate caracel in 2 volleys in my vigil. Boy, he was upset. But I told him about the flanking tactics and we joined forces and we managed to pop a sliepnir.

I havent tried buying the probe launcher yet but i will tomorrow

I know for a fact that william demeo is an awesome pvper and a gentleman who would never lie.

This thread is truly epic.

This flanking maneuver is how sleepers do so much damage right?

actually it is DEADLY serious. in case you have troubles with entering WSAD mode, try to run some FPS game like Counter Strike or Uneal Trournament 2k4, which supports this mode natively, this helps a lot to keep EVE stable for WSAD mode. Just make sure your move keys are binded to WSAD also in CS or UT2k4... Rolling Eyes
