Why is NC winning?


NC has the most CR3s, CR4s, CR5s and BR20s (by far) in the game.

Without generalizing about NC players, why do you think this is?

edit due to Thottbot's data.

I don't know about the CR but the BR is because they have really good weapons and vehicles so they get a lot of kills which equals EXP which equals battle rank.

I am forced to agree about the equipment, but inertia may also be a factor. Now that NC has this advantage, it's statistically advantageous to go with NC. Everybody loves a winner.

That's true, I mean it's like the Dev deliberately made the NC have the best equipments in the first place.
And what more, alot of people really do like the whole NC story,
Maybe because it involves alot of the word "Freedom" in it?

But TR wants you to have freedom from your liberty and VS wants you to be free of your babies to satisfy their lust for bbq.

Isn't it all basically the same?

To win you must secure facilities.
To secure facilties you must gain access to facilities.
Faciliteis involve combat so close it's nearly hand to hand.
NC have the best close range weapon.

For everything else, their weapons are the best, or medium. Apart from their buggy and maxs.



Why do the NC win? In short, the jackhammer.

If they aren't securing territory with the mighty Vanguard, they're securing hallways with the Jackhammer.

Makes perfect sense to me.

You must not fly Liberators much. Asside from a Skyguard, it's the best ground based Anti-Liberator weapon in the game.

Other aircraft, unless you got plenty of cover and afterburner your pretty screwed.

Also it makes a good AV and AI max indoors and outdoors.

I'd say its largely because of inertia and the empire theme.

I think the only way the Jackhammer affects the NC's success is that former TR and VS players who couldn't stand it anymore joined NC just so they couldn't get triple shotted by it.

Grey has obviously never played with the NC sparrow. it's missiles are too far apart and locking on is bugged so bad you can't hit shit. and it sucks as AV/AI.

personally I only chose NC because of the back story, and got stuck there ever since. also, I understand that on american servers NC has the best CR5's.

It goes in waves the VS will win for awhile then the NC then back to maybe the TR or VS and so on and so. As soon as someone sees that one empire has been winning a coupla days they decide to quit the empire they are on and join that one. Personally even though they don't always win I think the TR are the best just because of how coordinated. I haven't ended up on a squad of dumbasses once sense I began playing as TR (I've played as both NC and VS in the past).
