MPA SPECIAL ATTACKS!
ATTACK NOW REDUNDANT
Shadow and McCrunchnut
Yes, even I have one....
Do you know what a GAR is? No, I didn't either, until I met may300m. The seemingly random spouting of GAR that May will use seeks to confuse you. What is GAR? What does it mean? Why is she saying this? As I'm sure any fellow player is aware, any sort of distraction from the battle can prove deadly. You will spawn, May will say GAR, and then before you know it you will be drifting aimlessly through the arena....you might refocus your attention in a few seconds but by then it's too late....
How to avoid
Be confused no longer
The xxx Factor
Exxxtreme skill runs through this player's veins. He is no ordinary player. For he has not the X Factor. Not the Extra Factor. But the XXX Factor. No other player can attain this level of natural killing ability. Some use support techniques to help them fight. xxx does not do this. His skill is already there, ready to be deployed upon you the second you enter, and lasting up until the second you exit.
How to avoid
Slightly weaker in full rooms. Want to beat him? Get 15 people! Don't even THINK about a 1v1 unless you're very good.

xxx did a very good job of taking points off me for this one, had he been able to stay longer I might not have made it. Or maybe I'd have recovered and got the better of him =) Unfortunately he had to go fairly early, and from then on the main threat came from Typhoon. However, this person was not enough to halt the surge of killing to reach this 313!
I wasn't even going to put this up until I realised that simply because Drutt was there it was a rare occurance in itself. The 313 just makes it even better. Don't be fooled by the low score, you can see that as soon as I'm out the way she will tear her foes to shreds!
I put this up because the guest told me to
I bet you never did photoshop this did you 404?
Something else 404-related
And now more 404! But...which is better?
I think MPA didn't like me that day
Different numbers now. One a tribute, one because Brew would hate me if I didn't do it. She's cruel like that.
(yeah I was too lazy to crop it. So shoot me)
She doesn't do it much nowadays....but here is Julie unleashing the full fury of a Text Effect Attack!
Also featured is the uberness of Mcgillicutty (m)
The following two pictures are here for three reasons
1) Race to 1000!
2) What Walz says
3) Proof that, even though MPA is not as popular as it once was, it is STILL possible to get the General achievement without sitting there for over a week waiting for people to join your game, so what are you waiting for? Get it yourself too!
(important note-having someone you know there helps, if not for cannon fodder then for the moral support)
Achieved on 18/10/09-1am-ish in the morning!
This is the best game I have played in a long time. I mean, just look at the score!
The Magic of the 1000's!
People sometimes ask me 'how can I get better at MPA?'
There is no one simple suggestion I can make that will suddenly make you kickass all over the place, however, I can offer you ten simple tips that might help you go from -100 to +100. As long as you're not fighting mcgillicutty that is.
Tip 1- Learn to control your ship properly.
Sounds obvious, but too many people have been slain due to poor control. This forms the basis for pretty much every other rule. You need to know how quickly your ship can turn, how quickly you can evade a level three bullet, and so survive. There's plenty of opportunity to practise when no one else is in the room, so there's no excuses for being caught in a someone firing in a continuous straight line.
Tip 2- Pickups=Kills
Unless going for that red cross is tantamount to suicide, get it immediately. Because if you don't, either you'll be shot and killed at a later point when you could have healed, or your adversary will manage to get it right before you unleash that final killing blow their way.
Tip 3- Everyone you know hates you.
Don't expect to make friends here. By all means, form a temporary truce to wipe out that git with the level three laser, but once he's gone, don't expect them to not turn around and kill you straight afterwards.
Oh, and there is NO TEAM OPTION. Don't ask for one.
Tip 4- Don't be predictable.
Be random in your movements. Don't let your enemy think they know where you will go. Or even better, make them fire completely in the wrong direction. Common predictable movements involve flying in straight lines and spinning in circles, all with the guns blazing. Unfortunately it doesn't often work, unless the person you're up against is as predictable as you.
Tip 5- Use the walls.
This is a trickier one. If your opponent is stationary, but firing a wall of bullets your way, go round the wall and slay their lazy asses. Other than that, the usage really does depend on the situation. The best players know exactly how to use these tactics, and the only way you become like them is through practise.
Tip 6- Talking Kills.
No really, it does. If you want to type that message, be prepared to get shot. Hey, talking is fun, it makes the game more fun, but I just thought I'd point it out, so you're not surprised when it happens.
Actually it's not. That was patched up a long time ago. So the chances are they're simply better than you.
Tip 8- Freeze!
If someone moves slowly and erratically, but you can't quite seem to hit them despite all shots being on target, get a shield and be ready to use it. Their computer is lagging, but sooner or later it'll catch up, and all the bullets they fired in that time will be released onto the screen in a large (bullet) wall of death. Evasion is impossible.
Tip 9- Fire for the Future
If you shoot at your enemy in their position, you will miss, unless for some reason they are not moving. Instead, anticipate where your opponent will be in a seconds time, and shoot there instead. You'd be surprised how quickly this one can raise your kill count.
Tip 10-Don't give up!
You may be new, you may be down on -20 points, but don't quit! The only way you're going to get better is through practise. If you simply can't beat the git across the screen from you, try talking to them a bit. People aren't completely mercenary here, and you never know, they might just let you in on a few tips and tricks providing the first thing you say to them isn't something that you might utter in accordance with rule 8.
(More effective 1v1. Let's face it, we've all been there, on both sides of the coin. You may disagree and tell me you never lag. You are very wrong.)
The Lag Type
+Invincible to conventional skill
+Tip 9 does not apply. The likelihood is you cannot see THAT far into the future
+As soon as the bomb blows they can bring up a shield and nullify over 1,000 bullets at a time!
-As strong as they are against your fire, their fire is equally weak against you. They won't hit you much! This is because whatever lag you have on them, they also have on you.
-Irregular item spawn rates. And even if you pick it up there's no guarantee you'll have it!
1) Don't let them get a weapon powerup (or any other if you can manage it, but weapon upgrades take priority). Given that if we assume you have less lag (Because your internet is simply UH-MAY-ZING!) you should be able to reach it first.
2) Don't bother aiming at them, it's completely pointless. Instead just spray as much fire as you can in every direction. This is more effective with a bigger gun, hence another benefit of point 1
3) If they get a big gun anyway you'll just have to spray a little more cleverly. Shields and health will help. Lots of them, because you will get hit, and at 30hp a pop it's going to kill you eventually. Keep spraying your fire everywhere until they fall.
"protip-if you lose it is always blame it on lag"-Spoken by God
Truer words were never spoken. Amen.
Need further help?
NO, this user is not me, but someone else. However, you may find their videos useful for a few more tips.
More questions you might ask!
How do I change the colour of my ship?
If you care to view the screenshots you will notice that I am always white. You will also know that you are always white too. This cannot change, ever. You of course will also notice that every other player in the room has a unique colour assigned to them. This is the case for you on the other player's screen. The only way to find out what you appear to them as is to ask. If you want to change THAT colour, leave and reenter.
How do I leave the game?
Use the damn back button
Or press alt+f4
'Hold the power button on your computer for 5 seconds.'
(quote originally spoken by mcgillicutty)
An ode to MPA
If you can survive when all about you
Are shooting their guns and aiming at you
If you can trust yourself when all players doubt you
Dodge their bullets, and kill them too
If you can evade one, and not be shot by another
Or take careful aim, and fire accurately
Or reach the health, and then recover
And yet, not brag too much after a killing spree
If you can win-and not make winning your master
If you can lose-and take losing in your stride
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And, no matter what, keep your pride
If you can bear to see the skill you've shown
Twisted by newbies, and turned into cheating
Or watch your score suddenly drop like a stone
And yet, carry on, even while taking a beating
If you can stand up and face a tough guy
And finally challenge them to a duel
And lose, yet still keep your head held high
And not listen to the words of fools
If you can hold your nerve, and carry on
To face an enemy no matter what or who
And, to respawn when all your life is gone
And keep firing, to the noise of “pew pew”
If you can battle with crowds and dodge every shot
Or battle with Kings-yet keep your feet on the ground
If the trolls cannot make you lose the plot
If all players know you and your name is renowned
If you can survive every unforgiving minute
Make mistakes, and yet not be outdone
Yours is MPA, and everything in it
And-which is more-you'll be a Champion my son!
(with apologies to Rudyard Kipling)
Just another Score Crush
And now for something completely unrelated to MPA
But I thought I should share this with you
The moral of the story?
Don't try to be nice.
Tell them to GTFO and gb2basecamp
And then don't respond to anything else
More gaming experiences, this time of Multiplayer Pool. Although I initially didn't like it it has grown on me the more I played it.
So much so, that I have now taken on the ultimate challenge that is blakeg14
Ladies and gentlemen, this is THE man to beat in Pool. And he only gets better the more you play.
Remember that name.
And now to hail another legendary player of Nonoba
Her name is Fiona
She plays Starland TD.
Wanting to get revenge for all the MPA Score Crushes she was on the receiving end of, the challenge was made.
This was the result.
I take it back. Puretaine is the TRUE starland legend
I know what you're thinking now.
But I don't ALWAYS lose =p
I also like Platform Racing 2 as much as the next person
I miss Hollow Earth. Here's a pic of KiG getting his ass kicked from a long time ago
Pronounced fought the battle of his life. Although he killed Denounced 1.0 Denounced 2.0 proved much harder......
Pronounced 2.0 sadly died following this battle. The fate of Pronounced and Denounced 2.0 is yet undecided fully.
Finally, proof that Purpleshade will do nothing but lie and cheat on Nonoba
Example of LIES
Admission of cheating
(Danaroth denied cheating himself later that day)
Also I would like to thank Purpleshade for being my personal spelling and grammar checker. She spots ALMOST everything =D
She's been rather quiet about this lately though. I guess my spelling is perfect now =D
THE CHALLENGE LIST
Certain people over recent times have undertaken challenges from me. Upon completion the status of their success is recorded. Now I share the progress made. Of particular note.....
Big Break ID-WIN
Out on a limb-WIN
Say what you see-CATASTROPHIC FAIL
Current success rate-86%
The big 1000
Of course there will be challenges that I have to beat too....
Had to put this next picture up. It's too special to waste
Obviously there's the matter of how close to FAIL I was, but what else is there?
Julie wins a gold star!
My Shock Arena profile according to jsheppard. You have been warned!
Difficulty Level: Difficult
As being a top gamer, naturally the game of shock arena wouldn't be anymore difficult for KC Managra. KC is cunning and quick. His attacks are planned and precise. Any beginner who wants to learn the basics is advised to observe from KC. KC has been known to wipe out 3 or 4 players at once, without taking his shirt off. In any battle against KC the best strategy is to take him one on one (because most of the time he will take you one on one). If one waits too long it will allow KC enough time to morph into a leviathan.
One thing to remember when playing against me in multiplayer games
Just because you have a higher score, doesn't mean you've won ;)
A question, dear readers. Blockarelli-Will pure luck see you through or is there a deeper meaning, a strategy lurking in there?
xxx and I can't decide. What do you think?
The next picture represents the longest known Super MP Pong ever. Sadly gabriel clash (my adversary at the time) was wiped out of the game when he launched about 20 zombie balls my way. Which was a shame because I wanted to see how many I could hit.
The next picture represents the best map/level you will ever see on Platform Sandbox. However you should note that I was lazy when it came to it, I only created the thing you see me next to and a few other little items. If you're the one who constructed the 'express' drop+steps up feel free to identify yourself and you'll get a SPECIAL MENTION!
Believe it or not I also make my own now, in the far superior Fly Hack version of the game. Why is it superior you ask?
1) Less disconnections
1) Less Disconnections
3) Less Disonnections
The lack of people isn't really THAT bad either...if your level is good enough you can get away with the advertising
Anyway to show off to you all is the first satisfactory level I made in EE, that didn't get screwed over for the above reason. A simple coin collect, but nevertheless worth doing!
And now to bring this slightly more up to date with the modern day version. Though the construction of a level is now far more convienient with God Mode added, it still disconnects all the time. Saved worlds are good though. And in fact they just about make it better than the fly hack version I so raved about up there.
Next picture is another one I was demanded to put up, this time by musiclovar. At first I ignored her, but then I found out what she makes unicorns do. Hence I now upload it without question.
