MASHEEN is not noobish. Some might say it's OP cause it's got a hard as [censored] defense, and it can OHKO most cars. But the great disadvantage is that MASHEEN has a freaking slow speed.
And yes, it requires lots of skill and patience to waste using MASHEEN. You might say that all that is needed is to hit the opponent, but that's the hard thing. MASHEEN's slow speed makes it hard and frustrating to hit racers. Do you think wasting in 4DV using MASHEEN is a piece of cake? No. Even camping is not that easy (unless the racers are downright fools). But, wasting with MASHEEN in small, tight stages is easy. So when someone uses a MASHEEN in small stages while others are racing, that can be considered noobish.
However, there is one problem. It is the player himself. Noobs use MASHEEN in a noobish way, and that's when the noobishness happens. Here are some examples of MASHEEN abuse:
- Spinning in and out of a checkpoint so that there's no way racers can enter the checkpoint without being wasted. (happened with me in NFMM, it's really annoying)
- Using MASHEEN in small stages while others are racing
- Fix abusing (this might be hard to do in many stages)
So, it's not fair to call MASHEEN a noob. The thing that should be called a noob is the player himself.
