A sate, rather common in newbies to intermediate zone, but in the main servers, it seems to be a rare sight. JD and grub are rare, but still seen every now and then. Trico is a pros only bots thus its rare as well. But A sate is completely out of the picture. Is A sate really that weak? It does lack overall firepower on far ranges and tornadoes screw it badly. As a tracer bot, it is hard to use at times at well. However, at mid to close range, its constant 250+ hits and decent delay coupled with a powerful SS makes it formidable. But why its still a rare sight...? Anyone offer their comments? I made this post since A sate seems to be a mobile which few want to use anymore.

It's not that great defencively and at far range it's a pain in the ass. Nobody likes that so no one picks it.

I agree.

I have my good days with a sate, but it can get particularly frustrating when your tracer appears to land right where you want it and you get half-hits and splash only... I usually play sate for something fresh when I feel like playing my norm--but when I do, I end up just highangling since a little inaccuracy doesnt matter sometimes.

it fails long range
its a nub bot close range

and ss is lame becase it cant really get any type of weather unless its thor or unless they are sitting right under thunder/force
this is why nobody uses it

it's not a nub at close range, nubs just make it nub
it sux shooting ot the right, but that's fixable just by aiming at the core of the enemy.
ss isn't lame it does 550 damage w/o a problem, and the ss can be used as help for the long range problem

playing random i'm happy to get sate in most situations.

it kicks tonnes and tonnes of ass at up to almost one screen. beyond that it's still very dangerous. unpredictable somewhat, but dangerous. even getting one or two lasers to hit does decent damage and puts the pressure on them to hit back.

any bot that can do a lot of damage in one turn should not be underestimated. even if it only makes people get nervous then that can mean a lot. that's part of why the old raon was so great.

Trico, although not easy to use, is very common. JD is actually, in my opinion, the least used bot, and I haven't seen many people use it too well. I see maybe one real JD user every few days. Sate is much more common, IMO.

Jordan, dont get anyone started on how much they hate sate. I hate sate probably just as much as mauve does.

btw, even though i haven't played in a couple months i can probably safely say that sate is probably still one of the most used bots out htere.

yes justin you probably do, however, mauve will provide effective, thought-provoking argumentation whereas you will provide mindless drivel as your reasoning...

I used to play A.Sate a lot... I still like it, but long range is a challenge. I agree that J.D is hardly used anymore (at least from what I remember)--god I wish the days when J.D wasn't so nerfed...I would play J.D religiously.

Despite it's erratic tornado shots and weak/difficult shots past 3/4 SD, it can just be stopped by digging a little hole for yourself and he's screwed.

People shouldn't be calling it a noob bot, if a sate holes someone with their shot 2 @ 1/2SD shooting left, he's going to have a hell of a time trying to hit him again after that, and may have to waste a dual just to make the opponent accessible.

I would say that sate is one of the most balanced mobiles in the game, with the exception of it's SS. I always believed that the SS should attack with more lasers the further the shot traveled, thus forcing the user to attack with 2 at short ranges while only having a weak SS available to them, and being forced to fight with a weak shot 2 at long distances, to be made up for the stronger SS.

Also, it's not as easy as people say it is to hit all 3 lasers, even at close range. The accuracy required to hit a perfect shot 2 is astounding on occasion. If someone could hit all 3 lasers at less than 1/2SD nearly every time, he would be considered a pro in my book.

JD + Cozy Tower B + nonbionics = win


BTW, A. Sate is cool.
