    Calling all old players. I want people who have fought the terror of the Bay personally. I want to know what made him tick. As someone who wishes to surpass/fight him one day, I absolutely need to know EVERYTHING about him.

    Please help me take him down(if he gets back).

    @Eeyore please tag every old player you know, I don't know all of them. And help me, you must've fought him before.

    Well, I’ve tried old names here and only found @Brizo and @Bergster, but I can tell you what I know about BT

    1BC0ECFF-945D-479D-9F31-711EECA09858.png

    So this is BT’s rig. He managed A LOG TIME AGO this perfect combo that most people uses nowaday. Epic flare gun with all epic timing perks (lasts longer) + epic blast with fire dmg increase. We didn’t call it a flare gun at that time - it’s definitely a death clock - but I’m from the time that BT used to play with Enfo. Believe me, that’s a perfect combination for a close range combat with high damage.

    I don’t know if he went online a few days ago and managed to change to Speeder, but I’m most of my videos that I have here, you can see him using enforcer with just the same Rig. I remember he was a good dodger, very hard to hit with enfo. Or maybe he changed to speeder when I quit playing for 5 months that i was at sea, confusing, I just don’t remember because when I came back he had stopped already

    What was he like from a strategic point of view? As a fighter? Any weaknesses?

    I might not remember that well bud. Last time I’ve had a match with him was more than a year ago. Lattest record of our message on BB chat is from 375 day ago.

    But everyone has a weakness. He was very aggressive, usually come like a “hit and runner” with his enfo. It was very easy to sink ppl because of his combo. I mean, hard to have someone just in front of your face with a flare and a BC dealing 2k dmg at a single shot, lol. But most of the matches I remember he going by himself and wracking everyone, think this might be he’s weakness as far as I remember.

    Damn. So my target's only weakness is that he's the freakin' Dragon's Sin of Wrath xD. Was he F2P?

    Hahahah was going most of the times alone his weakness, but with such an overwhelming rig, who needs a team? LOL. Most of the time he could deal with two or three alone, so ended up 3vs4. That’s why he has 1.4 rate of kills/battles.

    I’m not sure if he is full f2p, but I believe yes. He used to spend hours and hours online, that’s why the impressive 42k battles. I it was so funny because I’ve already received messages like - I can’t play now bud, Blacktail is online. And some people really started to avoid it when he was on, haha! I remember waking up - BT is online. Before dinner - BT is online. Time to sleep - BT is online. Was insane!

    There are other players like Christmas, Pong Thailand, Net Thailand, God, Rashid and Eric that might tell you more about him. They are all from V1.0 elso.

    Yes, he did. I've rewatched each episode 3-4 times. Blacktail is my god lol. But I want to know how it feels like to fight him, and HOW he fights. What I see is, he's pure instinct, he's got a deadly battlesense. He's a rusher, he charges. He's good against every team configuration. But what this doesn't tell me is, how does it feel to be on the receiving end of Blacktail's guns?

    That’s so old! I wasn’t playing on that time. I’ve stopped when he used Enfo. So yeah, I was just right of what I’ve thought before.

    Yep! An awesome player with a super magical touch. The Battle Bay team corner at the office has a TV which shows live battles 24/7. I remember times when the team have just dropped what they have been doing and collecting their jaws while watching him dance in his Enfo obliterating the opposing team single handedly while nobody was even able to land a shot on him. Just beautiful.

    Ha! My torps do remember that Enfo dance. I’ve could most of the time hit him only by obstacles or team splash. Hard target !

    And that’s neat! Live battles 24/7 at your guys office haha!

    ROFL... and here I was sure that my "Leroy Jenkins" strategy on my shooter was doomed to failure at higher levels. Surely, I thought, a more experienced team would not allow a lone ship to go savage their ranks the way I do at lower infamies. Apparently I was wrong.

    I know! Haha
    but things changed nowadays right ? At that time we didn’t have legendaries. At that time Tier 3 was the maximum tier to evolve. Things got really difficult. It was very common for me, for exemple, to sink 2 or 3 ships with my two big’s combo. Ship’s HP and defense were way lower. I can’t even do a scratch with my torpedoes anymore, lol. I would love to see BT battleing nowadays, would like to see how he would manage all the new stuff that we have.

    No words to say because I didn't know him, but his layout gives some hope to me, I have a blast cannon and a flare on speeder while most of the people have an explosive cannon so I deal less damage than other people but that's what you need if you wanna play enforcer too, the explosive can not fit in there. I just don't know how to learn from him because things have changed, and there is almost no footage of Blacktail ply porthos did a series and it was amazing so I hope one day BT returns and we can see how he manages the new players and new maps and new mk7 and all that ...

    The best strategy with BT was to be on his team.....
