Rosav finally noticed the team invite, so there's three of us. Man, they need to make a better notification for invites and messages.

Tractor Beam Repulsars push them out of drain range. Possibly out of radiation damage.

You could also just ignore them, since the radiation damage probably doesn't even outpace shield regeneration.

Of course, if you're using mines, heavy torpedoes, or FAW....well, I guess you're SOL.

Quantums, photons, transphasics, plasmas, chronitons will all destroy acetone assimilators. Using Torp Spread, you don't even have to pay attention to do it.

What is the problem?

We had a rockin time last night. Oh, Jorf here's the card I'm eyeballing

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130826

What do you think? Should I spend the 50 dollars more and get this instead?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130835

Do note I am still on a budget jorf

Or, I could skip out on getting the card and get my motherboard and ram. (I do have a quad core sitting on my shelf)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131754

which will get me from having 2.8ghz of dual core to 3.4 ghz of Quad Core processing, and from 4 gigs of DDR2 ram to

8 gigs of
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820233144

The cost would be cheaper (thanks to having a donated quad on my shelf) to get the mobo and ram upgrade than it would be to get the 660s

Sorry they ruin your tricobalt mine + dispersal pattern: beta spam strategy.

Everything has a counter, adapt or move the battle elsewhere.
right because everytome you move you hit into another aa because 1 guy can put out 2. that means in a 5 man team you have a total of 10 out. how do you sugest moving around the map? should be you cant put out another 1 till the one you have out got blown up

Do you really come across a 5 man team with everyone equipping Aceton Assimilators? Aceton Assimilators (if it comes from the same player) does not stack the drain (don't know if multiple players can stack the drain, but I doubt it). The only thing that does stack is the radiation damage it emits, which is very low damage and can be ignored (unless you hit it with an energy weapon). If you're hitting them with energy weapons, then a) why are you targeting them with energy weapons?, or b) that's your fault for using FAW or CSV.

As for moving around the map, I don't sit still when I fight. I'm not within an Assimilator's range for long.

If it's really that much of a problem, TBR will easily push them out of drain range.

If your entire strategy to win revolves around mines, then that's your problem to figure out a counter.

There are options. Use them.

Do like me and fire up a rapid fire and let loose 8 cannons on them. Trolling your own team is always good for some lulz
