A question about Balloon Battle

#1_SignalPosted 6/19/2014 8:00:46 AM
This is a question about the Balloon Battle mode of Conduit 2's online multiplayer game.

When I hold my balloons, they float above my head. But then if I die and drop a balloon, it falls to the ground.

Why is that?

I mean, if the balloon is filled with Helium, as it must be because it floats above my head, why does it fall to the ground if I release it?

Shouldn't it float up into the sky and drift away?

Here's what's even more bizarre: If the dropped balloon gets picked up, it mysteriously floats again. It's so creepy.

Hopefully you guys more well versed in the back-story and lore of the franchise can share some Conduit-y reason for this.

Somebody please enlighten me!

You're serious about keeping The Conduit 2 boards alive...even if it involves making some of the lamest topics ever.
Originality +1
Creativity -10

Do better....

That wasn't very nice, little guy.

Sig, I think the real question is: why is a punch always a KO in a Balloon Battle?

Maybe it's because the balloons pop easily.

It would have been neat if the balloons floated around, blown by the wind, and you had to chase them and catch the dangling string.

Some nice opportunities for sniping in that situation. You just watch a floating balloon and wait for someone to go after it!

-10!!!

That's it Kas, you're out of the clan! And I mean it this time.

Originality gives you +1......
Therefore -10 + +1= -9
^Maybe not as lame as I thought.....

Outta the clan???
^Does this mean I have to delete my FF5 profile, and we don't get credit for the games we won when our team was using HAX!
^^pfft.....You'll take me back ;)
