He is wearing a MetoJack, but under it is a ROM Seeker (+1) head, which inverts its colors.
The equivalent for a surge is Byte-Stryker (+1), and DDR (+1) for a ram. The same effect is also present in body and arm parts too.
Parts with pluses higher than "1" have different effects, and parts with no plus have no special effects at all.

Byte-Stryker parts were released in July of this year and drop on maps 258 and 266.
The minimum level indicator is broken, and the actual minimum level required to equip the part in your screenshot is 266, not 10.

Raids / RT3 this Saturday!
September 30, 2016, 02:02:22 AM

I'm looking for two more people to play raid with this Saturday, October 1st, at 6:00 PM EST.
You must at least have an hour of time to work with, and have an account level 250 or higher which has completed RT2 at least once.

Send me a PM for a guaranteed slot, or join the room when you see it.

about guns; some of the guns, including dark meto, damage really high. i dont know from where did you get that info, but normally a dark meto hits 400-700 on high-level maps.

Yes, that's accurate. But a ram in trans hits 2-2.5K these days; compare that ratio to BOTS's ratio.

elektra parts; are you joking? its so easy to get elektra parts and they are worth at least 100k. you can get 1m gigas in like what? 10 minutes?

The sell price is fine; the buy price is not. I only mentioned the sell price for contrast.

First, the legion set is intended to be a single drop item that becomes rarer over time. As they were just released, they appear to be everywhere, but given time, they'll be rarer, like the halloween sets. If the playerbase feels like going about this in such a way is bad, I can give them a slight nerf to be rt1 instead of rt2 if necessary.

It's only 25M or so for a three-part set; a Walker-Bro costs more than that. Nobody sees any reason to play RT2.
It would be surprising to see nobody complain, but please consider nerfing them to RT1.

Second, I've always wanted to nerf 258, but it's always been a hard choice. We've had several options, including straight reducing its xp, making gora unpushable, making the kick-for-xp-loss ratio much higher in that level, etc. But ultimately we feel it'd piss off too many players to consider. If you have a better suggestion, I'd gladly consider it.

I like the sound of reducing the XP, and maybe reducing it further for anyone level 1-199.
I've been playing BOTS a lot recently, and nobody seems to mind how long it takes to level up, apart from anyone who has just come from BoutCheetah.
Anyone who is playing right now should consider themselves lucky to have had an advantage, and new players shouldn't mind much because they haven't lost anything.
Wow, that helicopter is so realistic.  :o

As for the prices in game is that taxs takes all the economy in-game or people left with couple of bills on their acc.

I definitely agree. I just meant the low-level items that new players can't buy/afford. It's great that guild buffs cost 500M, etc.
But a lvl 166 Impaler set costs 4.5M and usually at 166 you've only got maybe 400K gigas.

For example, at the time of writing, 'Gday' is lvl 167, wearing a lvl 16 set, and he's got 161K gigas.
He leeched some room playing 258, but now he has no other choice. He can't play 172 for better gear because his gear isn't good enough to handle that. And he can't buy better gear from the shop, because he can't afford it.

He's stuck. All he can do is leech more 258 plays and be warned, "stay back or kick," which means for most people something like "check Facebook while you punch in this time to get your level up." Even if some lvl 166 did have decent gear already, they still would not be able to afford shop gear, so they'd just play a map for their gear, which means there'd be even fewer gigas leaving the economy.

Special items like guild buffs should stay expensive, but low-level gear should be technically affordable.

Gun dmg is low atm yes, the staffs from GM and above use GM gun, only heard boosting that is worth it 2k dmg ++

The stats are op for lgn, so best choice would be nerfing it closer to rt1 set .
It's not worth buying membership unless you really want 45 more lvls and can do rt3 map.

Suggestions / Suggestion Compilation

Hello. All of these are quick-edit, number-based suggestions that wouldn't be hard to put in.

Member benefits
       - Nerf LGN sets, which are so overpowered as a non-members' set that they are used even by members, and have destroyed the
          entire RT1/2/3 system/community.
       - A 300 to 500 bot speed boost for members, perhaps toggled on/off via @speed.

       - Nerf 258 XP; it takes roughly 4 hours of playtime to reach max level for non-members.
          25,000 XP per game would make it take around twice as long and members' 2X XP would be slightly more worthwhile.
          If Gora were less defensive, it might be worth killing her for a chance to pick up a green chest or a red box.
       - Possibly, anti-leech; kill one mob to get the same XP as everyone else.

       - As the player-base dwindles, it seems logical to reduce the player requirements for raid.
               • RT1, 2P+
               • RT2, 3P+
               • RT3, 4P+

PvP and Base
       - Boost XP and GP of both modes so that the winner's XP/GP per minute is at least equal to the XP/GP per minute of 258.
       - Boost green chest drop rates for both modes so that the winner can collect chests at least as efficiently as grinding 206.

       - Boost all gun damages, including Dark Meto.
               With all of the overpowered sets systematically introduced, gun damage hasn't caught up; guns are worthless in sector mode.
       - Shop prices of ordinary items cost too much; an Elektra head costs 7.5M gigas and sells for less than 100K? It's like they're
          all priced as jokes.

Thank you for considering.

While I don't have the power to do anything about this topic at all I think it's important to remember that there is a huge risk the goes along with lending your items to others. They never have to give back your items once they are traded over and like in your case if they stop playing it can be very hard to get the items back.

I would always advise against lending items to anyone even if they are a close friend. I wish you the best of luck and hope an admin will respond soon.

Thanks, and thanks for the advice.  :)

A few months ago, I lent Smashy a few items of mine and it seems since then he's quit or become inactive.

Could someone like an admin please help me out? I do have a screenshot for proof if that's needed.

Thanks a bunch.
