/vm/ is a place to discuss all types of multiplayer games, whether on console, handheld, or PC, co-op or competitive, online or local.

Please familiarize yourself with the rules and remember to use the spoiler function where appropriate!

Please note that, like /v/, "Generals"—long-term, one-after-the-other, recurring threads about a specific game are not permitted on /vm/. Such threads belong on >>>/vg/

Thanks! I don't think it matters; I play with a keyboard and many of the strongest players on the hisouten discord play with keyboard. Some I think do use controllers of some sort though, so it's up to you.
Keep practicing and improving and you'll get up there! Learn your defensive options and some reliable combos and stuff. I think the level you were at is where improvement happens the fastest, so that should be fun!

i've been watching videos about how the aim assist with controllers is pretty overtuned giving controller users an extreme advantage with certain powers like the lightning.
>>
>>107818
this conversation comes up in every comp game with crossplay. The answer is always the same. The amount of genuinely good controller players able to abuse that aim assist is so miniscule it's almost irrelevant compared to mouse players who are on average going to be hitting more of their shots. It's especially ridiculous to complain about aim assist in a game with such crazy movement options. I've played games with really strong aim assist like fortnite used to have and this is nowhere near that strong

Multiplayer Game Development & Technical Discussion Thread

>Discuss multiplayer game development topics such as:
>Socket Programming
>Server Hardware
>Server architectures (P2P vs Client-Server vs instances)
>Cheats and anticheats
>Post your own multiplayer projects to get feedback

>Know how to make games but don't know how to get started making multiplayer games?
1. Pick a programming language and search for a tutorial on socket programming.
2. Learn the core skill of sending data across the network using said language.
3. Use this skill to turn a tiny (the smaller, the better) game into a multiplayer game.

Civ ghandi, eh?

>risk dice roll combat with tiles
How big are the tiles? This significantly changes how strategic army movement and ai management can be. If they are risk tier huge then its hard to justify doing anything that isn't choke point abuse, but if they are tiny then setting up army groups becomes more important than anything else.

>... and having those structures automatically enables army features within reach ...
So, you could place down structures to be forward supply bases, artillery support, sensor towers, etc?

>Giving the AI control over expanding your cities will most likely be a mid game tech you can unlock
I'd say that earlier is better, but you need to reach a more playable state to really judge that.

A hosting provider that also does a lot of other things. It's overpriced, and there are hidden fees everywhere. Look around and save yourself hundreds of dollars by buying something that actually suites your needs.

A server that sits in front of other servers to handle load balancing and various other tasks. The most common one is Nginx.
>docker
A container system. The idea is that instead of setting up software manually, you can get a reproducible environment you can deploy and manage with a single command (cattle instead of pets)
>kubernetes
A container orchestrator that manages the state and health of hundreds of containers across many servers. You probably don't need it.

It doesn't. It has a sort of prediction with host authority to sync back clients when prediction errors happen. Client plays the game a few ticks in advance of the server so that the visible delay between pressing the W key and the character moving forward is removed. This pretty much exactly like CS.

Yeah sure, SFAT also has wins over Hungrybox, M2K and Mang0.
I still said ibdw can't place top8 consistently. Read: CONSISTENTLY.
Scoring the occasional clutch win on a good day against some of the big names doesn't mean jack shit when your average tournament placing is 15-20th.
He has only won 8 singles tournaments in his entire career and the biggest name he took down in those 8 grand finals was Hax. Sorry but ibdw doesn't really belong with the rest of that first group.

When I was playing WoW Classic last year I was killing mobs in Azshara just for XP while watching a video on my other monitor. I looted one mob and moved onto the next one while not really paying attention, then glanced back for some reason and noticed I had looted pic related in the chatlog. I was playing a Druid for better or for worse.

I've never unboxed an unusual in TF2 sadly but I really would like to open a nice one.

>One thing to take note is there is an item system in this game but you need to understand the fundamental mechanic first but generally it's pretty simple.
I play and win on auto buy.

Granted I'm not playing rated yet, but for the first 10 level you absolutely do not need to interact with the item system at all.
>>
>>107096
I agree as long as you understand the fundamental of the game, you don't really need to think about item system. But in order to get more efficiency in winning, you need to understand items. In order to buy the right items, you need to understand what the champion's you're playing offer to the game. But fundamentally, damage and flanks tends to stack out cauterize and other red items.
