Ggs, thanks for the games
anyone wants to play?
How many potential newfags would be interested in fighting other newfags? I know I could probably get matches going on discord or irc but that shit is gay.
I'm a newfag but I don't think you'll get many others. Seems like most people have been playing this game for years.

Also, y'know, the age old argument of "why does this video game, which is mainly used for escapism, which takes place in a fictional world, need to have a nod to current real-life bullshit?

Case in point, a recent character that came out has a sort of faggy DRM that checks if the character's name, description, and url match the Workshop release, and if it doesn't it basically softlocks the game and tells you "Do not plagiarise".
A guy pointed out that this incorrectly triggers even when using the Workshop release when playtesting in the Extras menu. However, instead of saying "Oh okay, thanks for letting me know" or simply "Yeah this is a known issue", the creator doubled down and insisted he must have been trying to plagiarize it. Then he got a bunch of other contributors to come to their defense and accuse the guy of trying to steal the character.
TL;DR, the modded content is pretty great and enjoyable but the people making it are horrible fucking people

jesus christ what the fuck is wrong with these people
the glitch got fixed but holy fuck the dev and his friends handled that situation in the worst fucking way possible
It's shit like this, not the fact that they're left-leaning, or gay, or a furry, it's that they're legit psychos and psycho-enablers.

If that bothers you than my IJKL and left handed mouse setup would send you into orbit.
#1 thing to look out for is that you need to like the "feel" of the mouse in your hand. All hands are different, all mice of the same model are the same. If a mouse feels big or small in your hand chances are high you need to pick a different model.

#2 look for the appropriate amount of buttons. If you play lots of mmorpgs with dozens of keybinds (ff14 for example) you will want more mouse buttons rather than less. If all you play are FPS you will probably be alright with 0-2 thumb buttons

#3 to look out for is the latency, the lower the latency the better your reaction time will be in games. If your entire machine (including monitor and graphics card) is optimized for low system latency you can almost entirely negate peeker's advantage in FPS games for example.

take the 2 crossbow pill
They will claim it is because flails were not used as weapons (they ignore the executioners sword though, and all the other peasant weapons)
In reality it is because the devs are too stupid to figure out how to implement a flail, and all the anti-flail people just suck the devs dick so they oppose flails
I hate the idea of getting any new weapons because I am afraid of all the retarded animations that come with it.

What's the appeal of DoD, especially in 2020. It seems like they wanted to recreate the pace of the setting a bit and limit run and gun, and in doing so they picked a method that just makes the guns unwieldy and the shootouts unsatisfying. It's partially comparing apples to oranges, but I see no reason to opt into playing this when Day of Infamy handles the WW2 setting and pace in objective-focused gamemodes a lot better.
>go assault
>never stop punching
>What's the appeal of DoD, especially in 2020
1. You really, really like that part of any capture point game where attack and defense are in a real struggle right at the point itself so they're both bunkered down and skirmishing over 2 fucking feet of soil.
2. DoD:S gungame > CS:S gungame.
3. Orange_X actually plays kind of normally rather than whatever the fuck it becomes in other source games.
Yeah seriously.

I have an idea for a rare variation of shapeshifter
>1/100 (or a similar extremely rare number) games are the special "infestation" variant gamemode. In this mode everything seems normal... unless you are apart of a select group (i will elaborate on that later)
>3/8 players are shapeshifters (again you arent told this is the gamemode of choice until you see the signs), they are not on one team technically as only 1 can win in the end
>3/8 players are normal, if they escape via the shuttle they get a bunch of points
>1/4 players are "special ops", they start in orbit or in a bunker or something outside of everybody else's vox range. They each get a special weapon (lmg, railgun, auto shotty or flamer) and an option of 4 random utilities (such as map scanner, vision enhancer, etc) along with the bonus "high quality suit" perk (-30% flame damage taken, +30 oxygen, +50 health, +25% cooling rate, +50% healing speed).
>for spec ops: upon spawning they will be told whats going on, during the pre-landing time they get a mini tutorial on what all their stuff does. About 1m-3m (probably map dependent) in they enter via droppod or bunker or something in a randomized location. every normal who survives gives them additional points (even if the spec op in question dies)
>Spec ops also get a 4th slot that allows them to call in a shuttle if 3 (4 remain), 2 (3 remain) or both of them activates it (the final spec op can also do this)
>special ops get first pull from the pool of players who desired to be shapeshifter, if there are less who opted in for shapeshifter than 1/2 players then the rest get pulled randomly from the opt out pool, those players are given the message that they were chosen because nobody else did
>game doesnt end when all shapeshifters are killed, it only ends when the shuttle arrives to pick all the survivors up
>only half the objectives are available on the map (although on spawning nobody will know this and it will only change once spec ops arrive)
Posting it in a dead thread on an annoymous forum isn't going to do anything, post them on Steam Suggestions instead.

Not sure why this thread is dead. I'm pretty sure there are many players out there given that there's about 500 or so on average.

wtf I love this gun now

>What's its selling point and why?
The Classic allows you to charge shots without scoping in, but in return you can't headshot unless in full charge.

In practice it functions like a huntsman that actually requires some skill. Like the huntsman, it's great in tight chokepoints and payload maps and works very well against spies. Unlike the huntsman, you can achieve a lot of consistency with it if you're good, and it allows you to keep your distance like a real sniper rifle.

Its one (real) major disadvantage is that it sucks for counter-sniping.
god anon i almost forgot these days, i fucking hated them hahaha. Felt good being a spy player after sniper lived through multiple headshots
Correct - but sniping should, and the character of Marvin Mundy is brilliant. Most cannot resolve this paradox.
So if I'm following, in exchange for being able to deal instant 150+ damage via a headshot, you can slowly deal up to a maximum of 150 damage via a charged bodyshot. Wherein lies the appeal of this tradeoff?
You can still do headshots, as long as your thing is fully charged.

>Wherein lies the appeal of this tradeoff?
You don't get tunnel vision when aiming.

I don't know. It might just be me, but I have two ways of playing snipers:
1. Using regular sniper, hardscoping on a location enemies might come from (essentially defensive)
2. Using Huntsman/Classic, turning a corner and flick-aiming for a quick headshot, then hiding behind same corner (essentially offensive)

As a hitscan weapon, the Classic is more consistent than the Huntsman at its job, provided that you have decent flicking skills.
I guess if you're capable of quickscoping the Classic doesn't have any advantages. But for people who haven't spent 1,500 studying the AWP in CSGO while everyone else was out having sex and playing demoman, I think it's a good(/underrated) choice.

What do you even buy as a whale in a game that lost to wow 15 fucking years ago?

Too early to tell whats gonna happen from this. PS2 could become a cash cow, or maybe just left alone. Hell, maybe even PS3 will be a thing.
The curious thing is why they paid so much for PS2. The game isn't worth that much, there's something going on under the table.
The last investment company that bought and subsequently sold Daybreak is literally being done for money laundering and has all their assets frozen currently.
source? more info?

Oh, I rarely play solo - I assume it might take a little longer. You get less enemies solo but it also means your have more of the map to cover by yourself.
>playing solo
why would you do that to yourself
because idk what i'm doing
neither does anyone else, who cares
It's a coop game with pretty low stakes. It's rare to find people who are overly concerned about your performance and it costs nothing to avoid them.
If someone pings something with their laser pointer, try to see what they're looking at and you'll figure out what needs to be done.
