This thread is silly.

YOU CAN'T STOP THE RAPE TRAIN.

It appears I must go back to the original quote. With a forum rule.

THOU SHALT KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FACT AND OPINION

THAT'S MORTALS FOR YOU,  Death continued. THEY'VE ONLY GOT A FEW YEARS IN THIS WORLD AND THEY SPEND THEM ALL IN MAKING THINGS COMPLICATED FOR THEMSELVES.

Yeah, my post is fact. Yours is not.

A FORUM RULE.

"Enjoy the rest of your sad elitist life as I will pursue helping gamers in this gamer generation, and perhaps you will develop an unstretchable itch in the knowledge that people like you mean very little to me, or anyone else with strong care in anything that they pursue."

I've been thinking about what you said. It's true, the train can't be stopped, just delayed/derailed/paused/killed as it comes. People are too stupid to stop doing something just because they die six times trying to do it. There's always the hope that the seventh time will work. I apologize for thinking these people are smart. That was stupid of me.

If you are in said Goonhaven game, and theres a steady stream of 3-5 HO that know their paths or have nice campy spots they can fire at your base from... no you aren't stopping the rape train. You can't keep a good HO out of your base forever, and while you may derail his approach or even kill him, its likely said HO knows more than one way to rape you. base.

You see the beauty of the rape train, is that there is rarely just one 'entrance' hole, and if the team devotes enough people to one entrance, its never a garuntee that the HO will rape from a different direction. Or sometimes even worse: get a vantage point where he can fire mortars into base orifaces from far far away. This is still rape, but he rapes you without getting inside you. He kind of mindfucks you, because when you disc jump at him in your spawn, he either pegs you with a missile, midair, or decides to abandon his post just as it starts to become dangerous.

But lets say your team gets a farm up, and has some good D, and is able to stop those HO. Well pretty soon you get to deal with the assault+shield pack/light cloaker/SJ rapers that rape without your knowledge. Then you get home and you're like 'wtf when did I get raped?'

Ultimately the only way to stop heavies from getting into your base (reliably) is to deny them their invos. Counter-rape. If you can get enough pressure on the other team's base and assets, it often serves as an excellent D.
