Which do you prefer? I go with burning something down. Its a weakness of mine. Love to see things burn. I get a sick and twisted feeling of joy when I set another tank on fire and watch as they slowly fade away. Even better when you set the same person on fire twice.

 

 

This sums me up pretty well. 


“Greatness is a transitory experience. It is never consistent. It depends in part upon the myth-making imagination of humankind. The person who experiences greatness must have a feeling for the myth he is in. He must reflect what is projected upon him. And he must have a strong sense of the sardonic. This is what uncouples him from belief in his own pretensions. The sardonic is all that permits him to move within himself. Without this quality, even occasional greatness will destroy a man.”

These just arent as fun. But watching someone run and the little damage counter acting like a death clock is far more rewarding. And to keep things neutral, I will not vote, since my vote would be biased.

atleast you will get all the damage to yourself, when you ammo rack someone, because when someone is burning others may shoot it and farm it and eventually kill it

Thats a risk I am willing to take.

I love the sound of when a tank ignites.

I don't like it when they burn down to a dot of health and are still alive.

So I guess I am in conflict with my answer.

As long as they’re dead and I’m not I care not from where the damage flows. :)

I asked an EOD man how he dealt with the stress of his job. 

 

He said he didn’t have any stress. Either he was right or else it became someone else’s problem.

It's situational. Nothing really tops a full health ammo rack. Especially if it's at the beginning of a match.

But it's always a pleasure to track someone, watch them repair, and then get the lucky shot into their engine as they go around the corner to burn to death. Naked and alone.

Yep. Also as entertaining is when you track them, and then set of them fire.

So far, the merciful guys have a really good lead.

It's always fun watching the top pop and bounce off of other nearby tanks...

I get more satisfaction from fires.... knowing the panic that ensues as your HP melts away and pollutes the atmosphere. Glorious.  I voted for fire.

However, I do find the turret pop to be more exciting to watch!

Burn baby burn!! 

 

Is it just me or does any else think of this SPR scene and maybe even say the lines out loud over voice chat when you or another green  sets a red on fire?
