To get started in multiplayer, you gotta jump over to www.gamespyarcade.com, and install Gamespy Arcade, which is used for finding servers. You also need to jump over to the downloads section of this site, and find the Giants 1.4 patch in the patches area, as well as Giants Mod Manager from the tools section.

Couple tips to make the transition to multiplayer smoother:

• The only weapons worth a spit in player to player fighting (when playing as a Mecc): Proximity missile, Homing missile, rocket.

• Building objects in Team Deathmatch mode is generally considered to be bad form, and will usually get you kicked. Building in other modes is A-Okay, though.

Don't worry too much about your spelling, as long as we can understand you. We have many people here that have English as their 2nd, 3rd, and even 4th language.
Just have fun on Multi and don't be annoying.
Welcome to GCK. =)

Welcome to Giants!

Get GSA n' have fun. If you want to train your skills in the art of mecc vs. mecc a bit, just give me a shout in the lobby if you see me, I'll be happy to guide you through.

"Only if u want to play"

No payment is needed for GSA, though if you do pay you get some fancy extra features.

Welcome to the community Link :)

A good way to get started is to get a feel for the characters in the game, single player missions gives you a basic understanding of the game and how to use them. To get a deeper understanding you should ask someone to train with you, having an ally at the beginning is easier then to be alone and/or 1vs1.. Jetpack is a good start, wait with shield untill you are ready for it. :)

Enjoy the game, players, characters and everything that fallows :)

Link's posts are dated back 7 months ago. I think it's a bit late for introductions and tips. :P
