Tips for new game - DiscStorm

XMPT Games is bringing DiscStorm to Vita, PC, Mac, and Linux this summer with the help of publisher Mastertronic. DiscStorm for PC is scheduled to be launched next month, on August 14.



Fast-paced and furious, DiscStorm is an arena combat game where split-second reactions are essential to dodge flying discs as they ricochet around at breakneck speed. This article will give you a few tips and tricks for the multiplayer combat.
First, the game is set to coming to North America, Australia and Europe the same day. So players who want to play the game earlier than others can use a NewZealand VPN to switch IP address to a New Zealand one, and get the game at NZT, among the earliest to enter into a new day. If you don't have a VPN account, you can resort to a free VPN account. The settings are simple, a free VPN is enough to download the game with a New Zealand server.
It's a generic 'first to ten' match that most players familiar with the genre will recognize. That's you get a point every time you hit another player and the first player to score 10 points wins the match. This game mode can be played either with or without power-ups. Using the power-up chest as a trap is a worthwhile strategy in nearly every case. You can also catch your opponents off guard by throwing all of your discs out at the very start of the match.
In certain levels, you can take advantage of unusual banked shots to fire around corners, or in the case of the space level, you can even wrap the disc around the arena to hit someone from behind. 
The next mode is called 'Survival': each player gets three lives and once they're gone, you're out of the match. Much like First To Ten, you can play with or without power-ups. Use the power-up chest as bait to land hits on unsuspecting players. Either hide behind them and through through or keep your distance and wait for someone to try to take the chest.
Let your opponents kill one another off without doing any of the killing blows yourself. This is a strategy that can backfire when they realize you aren't losing any lives and then gang up on you to even things out…Deflecting is incredibly useful in this mode as you don't care who you hit, as long as you do hit them!
Another of the modes is called 'Death Disc' – a mode that has caused some of the most frantic matches we've ever had. A single disc spawns somewhere in the arena. It will be somewhere that we've determined to be a fair location regardless of how many players you have in the match. If any player is hit with the disc, including the player who threw it, that player is out of the match. If you find yourself in a Death Disc battle, try these strategies if you want to get an edge on your opponents:
Remember that you can pick up discs whilst dashing, it's a great way to get to the disc as quickly as possible at the start of the round.
If you get the disc first, the best way to secure a hit is to get as close to someone as possible. Use the deflect move to stun them and immediately throw the disc at them.

Picking up the disc after it's been thrown is tricky. A good strategy for this is to dash over to the spot where you think it will land just before it hits the ground. This should mitigate the danger of getting hit by your own disc, if you do it right…
Some of you may not familiar with VPN or don't know how to setup a VPN, just refer to the VPN tutorials.
