I'm angry. Angry about scouts
>>361117I'm angry about drill tards
>>361275Angry about drill tards? Why?
>>361286Because the fags will constantly argue about flamer or cyro every fucking thread
>>361289as some one who never plays a dirty digger i like it more and it seems more helpful when they use cryo kills flying things and seems to keep bugs away faster than flamer, when i actually play digger i like flamer.
What the actual fuck am I supposed to do as a driller against the omen exterminator event? I run Cryo + Subata but I don't think flamer or EPC would do much better. In fact I'd appreciate tips for all classes since it's the only event that's not a guaranteed win for me, not counting shit spawns for kursite or awful bomb placement for tritilyte
>>361368c4 the radial pulseimpact axe the restengi OMEN is easy modescout can be hard or (done in 5 s) depending on what he bringsgunner is safe and fairly easyultimate tip when no engie: call a resup pod right on top of the platform that is the opposite of the matrix core infuser, stand on the resup and during OMEN
I wish this game didnt run like shit on my PC
>>361540Just how bad is your PC?
>>361547GTX 750, 12GB of RAM and an AMD Athelon 200GE
>>361368You drill tunnels into the wall to give your team safe places from laser beams
>>361554I'm not familiar with AMD CPU specs but I used to play with a GTX 760 with an i5 4690 just fine before slightly upgrading my gpu. What settings are you using?
>>361582I turned them all down to the lowest. For the most part it runs okay but when there's alot of bugs and shooting and chaos, it takes a dip
>>361582>>361585I actually have a GTX 10something I got from a buddy but two of the fans dont work so im nervous about putting it in
>>361586just get an aftermarket gpu hsf for it
>>361368Hope your engie knows how to set safe platforms above the activation switches. Otherwise dig a trench and suffer
>>361554what is with this thread being filled with all the sorts of toasterfags
>>361615Because DRG is one of the few recent games you can run on a toaster.
>>361617well they should change that, go get a job faggots and buy a real PC
>>361620Buy one for me.
>>361626get a job
>>361634No, go hire yourself lazy shit
Reddit game Also the recent update was bad Also no new update with shitty non fitting weapons in sight
>>361676>shitty non fitting weaponsseethe harder drilltard, you're never getting the laser
>>361692I wanted like arc lightning emiter gun But If cum gun will get overclock that makes it sprays acid that instamelts bugs with cool visuals it will be ok though
>>361696>arc lightning emiter gunso something actually shitty and unfitting
>>360830It's funny you made the thread with this because yesterday I spent an hour trying to get that achievement.
>>361711Did you get it?
>>361714Yeah it was almost exactly long enough, got the cheev the second I hit the pumpjack.
>>361711>Almost entirely flatAnon you're supposed to build it with a huge angle so it takes longer to ride it upward.
Kinda offtopic, but how the fuck do I win Stage 2 of this EDD? It's kicking my teams ass big time. We can't deal with the Dreadnought fast enough between swarms. Any winning tactics out there?
>>361940>We can't deal with the Dreadnought fast enough between swarms.then maybe go and minmax instead of running retard loadouts
>>361940have a decent scout that doesn't die and actually lights up the ceiling/area that he'll be mining the Aqua (scout should focus on the ceiling aquas while the team stay low/middle)The reason scout should light up at least his mining area is that it allows the team to support fire from below if Gunner is running AC/Magic Bulldog, because Swarmageddonpop the dread RIGHT AFTER the 1st swarmagain, scout pops the egg, the egg is in a hard to reach placethere's a decent room at the middle height of the map that is suitable for fighting Dread that also houses a few Aquas, by the time the Dread dies, the room should provide more than enough Aqua to clear the stagedone, ezpz, I did this shit with 160ms ping as Scunt and didn't die a single time
>>361512>>361559>>361614I do dig tunnels and trenches but usually that only helps me escape and wait for the timer to run out so we can complete the mission after getting fucked.>c4 the radial pulseI thought the drone launcher was the most dangerous one? Both hurt like a truck of course, maybe I'm overestimating my ability to dodge the plasma waves
>>361940basically this >>362013ill add a few things-Make sure you are stocked up on ammo before stage 2. You want to start it running out the gate. It's a PE so time is against you-Take out the spitballers above you right away-Dont hesitate to drop a bunch of supply pods. You need it here more than stage 3, and the next stage has enough nitra for itself anyway-Like the post above me said you need a competent scout, a lot relies on him doing his jobs correctly. Popping the dread at the right time, mining the top aquarqs, lighting the room, contributing to the dread, mining nitraStay aware of your surroundings. Every time you fail you learn the level layout better, use that knowledge to your advantage
>>361715it only does that because it triggers after you leave it

>>362072>contributing to the dread>scuntfunny joke
>>362227scout with IFG, m1000, and the 250 damage power attack is one of the biggest contributors to dreads in an elim group
>>362228>this is what scunts actually believe
>>362231keep crying about how things are "bad" while only you struggle.
>>362237keep pretending things in your deranged head are real schizo
>>362228>implying cryo grenades and jumbo shells arent better
>>362253cryo nade is bad.
>>362263>*crosses half the cave with grappling hook at lightspeed, throw a cryo on a Naedocyte Breeder at point blank*Heh... nothing personnel...
>>362263>best grenade in the game is badoh no it's retardedas expected of scunt main though
>>362267breeder weakpoint is one of the higher multipliers in the game, you can kill it in like 4-5 charged shots without wasting a nade.>>362270as usual the loudest screechers are always garbage
>>362271>focus shotting >wasting time doing 4-5 focus shots instead of literally one second lobbing the grenade>calling anyone garbageoh no it becomes more retarded with each passing minute
>>362272get more mileage out of an IFG and offering my team crowd control. keep drooling over freezing a breeder and thinking you're top gun.
retarded and delusional, how cute
holy shit the density of overseas dwarves is showing.cut it out
>>362263you can 2 phase cycle a dreadnought with cryo grenade + cryo cannon really quickly without either the driller or the scout having to reload
>>362279I don't gamble on my teammates being competent to pull off a specific strat every game like some dullard.
>>362280so you only play hazard 3? got it
>>362281I would tell you to pat yourself on the back for regurgitating that again, but it doesn't fit. You're the one trying to cheese hazard 5, get good.
>>362284let me know how that ifg works out for you when you land in a haz 5 mactera plague with 4 breeders 70m away up in the ceiling lmao
Why are there so many tryhards in deep dive? It's the same modes as the normal ones but in three consecutive matches where the resources transfer over so it's even easier. Some of them like the mule salvage ones don't even have you defend against huge hordes so it's even easier. I've been kicked so many times for having a low level dwarf and 9/10 times it was by a pink red star pleb.
>>362466>I've been kicked so many times for having a low level dwarfbased, fuck lowlevel shitters, stay in your shitter lobbies
>>362482t. Bronze 2
>>362482The reason I'm low level is because I don't want to be bothered with doing the assignments desu. Its literally just an extra star on your profile and gives you no other rewards.
>>362466If its for regular DD that shit is mindless. I would never kick a low level dwarf on that, you can practically carry a team of shitters by yourselfFor EDD I can kind of understand low level kicking in the prelobby. It's an hour time investment, and a bronze 1/2 promotion usually doesn't translate to being competent enough yet. But I do hate being a gatekeeper and people were patient with me when I first started so I pass it forward to the next guy.I don't prejudge you for being low level but I do expect you to carry your weight. If you can't carry your weight I expect you to try and actively communicate with the team, because then I'm at least having fun teaching greenbeards. It's the bare minimum to expect in a co-op game. If you can't do that you get the boot because then I get nothing out of you
>>362557nice excuses lowlevel shitter
>2nd stage of the deep dive>pop the dread cocoon>30 seconds later 2 (two) bulk dets spawn
>>360830i actually have clips of this on my hard drive lol
>>362288probably shouldve used this.
>>362466My lobbies always advertise for noobs to join, so I have a good idea why. It sucks when you're in a position where things go wrong and those new players are the only ones left and they let any initiative they have slip through their fingers. When 30 minutes is wasted off a fluke and your only teammates that are alive are really bad you can see some awful things.>Does not take initiativeNew players tend to waddle around while simultaneously paying no attention to the teammates around them.>Frequently attempts to hold out in a "last stand" instead of runningStill yet to grasp that holding ground costs health on high difficulties>These last stand locations are always poorly chosen Whether its not being able to see bugs until they're on top of them or hard to reach, it's never good because if it was they would not have died.>Does not grasp that reviving is more important than fighting, leading to situations to get worse the longer they take.The biggest lack of initiative I see. Sometimes you just need to tank a couple of hits and get the revive in. Sometimes you won't even take damage because they're all attacking the downed dwarf. Instead they run around like chickens without heads until things get even worse and they die.High level players aren't immune to this, but it might be more rare. New players aren't all bad either, but most are.
>>362746>Frequently attempts to hold out in a "last stand" instead of runningThis is a symptom of a broader issue, which is the assumption that a good loadout and precise aim is enough to get you through high haz missions. It's not. What separates good players from bad ones is decision making. It's frequently and continually taking in information about your surroundings, making a plan, and executing on it. The majority of the time this involves moving around or repositioning of some kind. It feels like people don't do this because it gets in the way of their ability to go pew pew and shoot bugsYou see it with new players all the time. They come out of a failed mission and ask about ways to optimize their build. What they fail to realize is that no amount of weapon changes are going to make them suddenly good. If you're failing missions, the solution to your problems is not coming from the equipment terminal.It also leads people to see utility as a waste of time. After all if it's not doing damage, what's the point? It's most apparent when you have scouts that aren't using flares, but it extends to the other classes as well.
>>362919>The majority of the time this involves moving around or repositioning of some kind.unironically any amount of ping or packet loss will void this shit>jump>visibly land on the other side>teleported to the bottom of the pit and diemany keks
I have gotten all my dwarves to silver men, what does that make me?

>>363017what the fuck did you expect would happen if you shot it?
>>363033There's lots of stuff that you can shoot or use your pickaxe on and it just..blows up into goo
>>363017I mean, it does say "DREADNOUGHT COCOON" when you point at it.
>>363037It said Glyphid Cocoon!
>>363039Alright, fair enough
>>363039yeah, and its fucking huge and making a loud heartbeat noise
god, update 35 could not get here any sooner
>>363070you think you have it rough, things could be far worse
>>362711>pop bulk>dread does allahu akbarnot seeing any problems herebulks are only a real ussue if they spawn on escort (which they always fucking do) or when one spawns in tiny ass tunnel
>>362919>but it extends to the other classes as well.Man, if I had a dime for every gunner I've seen not use their shield in a crisis or waste ziplines going up to a single vein of ore I'd have enough money to buy each of them a book on how to stop being so fucking stupid.
>>363145>not use their shield in a crisis if you only play gunner once in a while it's easy to forget shield exists>or waste ziplines going up to a single vein of oremine it yourself then faggot, really tired of pinging shitty placed nitra vein for few minutes solid and no one of you fuckfaces doing shit
>>363145>ziplines going up to a single vein of orehardly a waste desu, the zipline loses value for every slot filled on your team, and if they're going to ignore veins that have been pinged a dozen times, they'll have to live without a zip
>>363017I did a similar thing but it was even more retarded.>last assignment >join in mid match>everyone is just sitting around doing fuckall aside from the engie building platforms everywhere for some reason>decide to look around>see huge egg>huh I wonder what this is>immediately start drilling it>huge dreadnought comes out and downs me>everyone is panicking over the huge dreadnought >I get kicked It was in the span of 10 seconds too.
>>363148>>363153I'm not talking about gunners using a zipline after pinging a bunch. By all means, go ahead and do that if your teammates are that useless. I have seen plenty of gunners blow a line before even pinging once.
>>363199retards are always gonna retard in various soul-crushing ways
>>363017>>363194That's why you play single player you fuckers. Then, if/when you fuck up, the only one you inconvenience is yourself.
>>363145To be fair the zipline utility becomes more constrained the higher up in haz you go. There are scenarios where the zipline is the best tool for the job (big gap traversals), but those scenarios are themselves not always present to due mission type, map layout, or team pathing. On haz 5 (and 4 somewhat) most other uses of ziplines feels like death traps. They guarantee a slow enough movement from you that all projectile based enemies can easily snipe you. If you're high up enough you're taking the projectile and fall damageI totally get that its nice to have a slightly elevated position away from ground enemies and above teammates while firing. But I don't know, I still feel paranoid as fuck riding them. I'd rather have the option of my full movement speed. It's actually why I've been running lead storm OC, because it incentivizes me to use ziplines moreBut good lord, you're 100% right about shields. Gunners do not fucking use them at all, and they're so powerful
>>363333>always angle my ziplines in a way that you'll be able to move fast downward if you need to>seemingly every time I actually need to move fast some chucklefuck lower down the line isn't using the extra speed and I get caught by the swarm of mactera behind me as I unceremoniously grind to a snail's crawlall of my anger and selective memory
>>363334you forgot the part where its a scout on the zipline in front of you
>>363388I love watching the gunner pull out his line and set up the """perfect""" zip only to jump in front of him as soon as it shoots and ride it first right in his fat face
>>363333>On haz 5 (and 4 somewhat) most other uses of ziplines feels like death trapsEven in a completely flat room you can still angle them upwards and dig a staircase to them to be able to get on from both ends and use the angular speed boost to your advantage, ping ponging dreadnoughts and other things, very handy to run across the room, bunnyhop a little up the wall, and jump on the zipline and speed back across to your downed teammate while the enemies have to run all the way back at normal speed. Handy if you want to save shields or don't have any left.As for the ranged enemies and naedocytes etc, you either have to be far enough away with high transversal with the speed upgrade (the one from the equipment terminal on the space rig) or have enough distance up an elevated zipline that you can just speed down while they shoot their payloads (and miss you) and just turn around and blast them then reset to your previous position. If you're good (and lucky) enough you can just lay into mactera weak points with the gatling gun and stun them before they can even try to dump their payloads on you, or take the autocannon fear upgrade for easy mactera cheese. but abusing the speed boost, and webbed and chained ziplines at different angles and elevations you can easily dodge 100% of all fireballs from dreadnoughts and put enough distance between you and naedocytes where you have enough space to wipe out big clouds of them and then reset. If you're on an angled zipline, and you're positioned properly and don't get caught out like a noob without room to speed away from projectiles, it's a pretty comfy position on any hazard level. Just be mindful of acid spitters that can creep up on you if you don't have a scout lighting up the ceiling
A bad day can always get worse
>>363614stop playing shitty mods
>>363636>shitty modswhich are?
>>363644whatever one "dude billion bugs lmao" this mod is
>>363646Thats vanilla anon. The game sometimes generates a fuckton of spitters/web spitters all at once. Play on a haz higher than 4
>>363546These are things I've wanted to do (and sometimes do) but the unknown of teammates grabbing on and getting in the way of your momentum fucks me up. Being able to use the downward speed boost is crucial in these positions but its an all or nothing. If there's no one in your way you get rewarded, if there is you either get downed or severely interrupted. Maybe there's a git gud element to this where I gotta get used to jumping over teammates on the zipline. I guess you're right though, must get over my fears as its too good a thing to pass up>webbed and chained ziplines at different angles and elevationsZipline webs are fun, I've recently been experimenting with using zipline webs as a form of safety netting on refining missions (and anywhere else applicable). If its an especially vertical level with ground drop offs around pipes, I set up a few lines at the bottom of cliffs people might jump off, trying to maximize the chance someone will be able to reach one for avoiding fall damage. This is really compensating for what engis should be doing but it turns out no one wants to use their fucking platform gun either
>>363646why are you butthurt lmaoass gnawed by a Grunt?
>>363646This is literally common on haz 5. Even on haz 4 the game doesn't hesitate to generate a dozen+ web spitters at a time. Wonder why you dont know this
>>363660i mainly play hazard 5, so i dont run into many absolute retards like that. If you must, keep them in pairs in an X formation, that way you can share the same position with the tards
please stop calling all the resupplies down in the same position.
>sticky flames driller>engineer that gets less kill than the gunner and is perma downed>AoE autocannon gunnerI could see why everyone hates this weeks EDD, it filters bad builds with ease. I tried to do it with a group of new players and the defining thought from the dead weight engineer at the end of the match was that the M1000 wielding scout did not kill enough and that's why we lost.
>>363697Well Mr good at everything, how do you optimize engi?
>>363663>literally common on haz 5.no it's literally notor area specific
>>363699I don't really blame anyone for the loss, it's a consequence of the hosting decision. When I play that boring class I use 1 fast turret with nukes and mines with refire stubby and always top kills. His problem was only partially build related. The big issue was that the three of them combined were unable to deal with the fodder. The gunner build is fine but gunner struggles to put out the numbers a good driller or engineer can. Sticky flames is also impotent when compared to explode, and it showed many times.
>>363704it is common on higher hazardst. different anon
>>363717i have seen it maybe 2-3 times and mostly on EDD
>>363704it can happen if you take far too long on a refinery/point extraction
>>363768since when refinery gets worse spawns over time?
>>363772idk but it happened to me the other day on a particularly long one, the web and acid spitters just got progressively worse and worse
>>363772refinery is just PE under the hood with a coat of paint
>>363790it's differentjust what populates the level + whatever hordes spawn on their usual timers. Once the button is pressed the game changes and on top of those occasional hordes you now have spawns every 15~ seconds.
>>363646That's a pod of bugs that can 100% spawn vanilla.
>>363704The image posted contains what, 8 acid spitters? It's not an every wave thing but thats absolutely in haz 5 territory. To get them all that close together is rare because spitters like to spawn a distance from each other. But level geometry can funnel them into a common spot. Plus the person is behind a shield which helps to zone them even further. It happensThe spirit of the image is the imminent danger presented by that many acid spitters together. But in reality its actually safer to have them grouped like that than not. The most dangerous enemies are the ones you fail to see, firing at you from a random dark corner. So while you might not literally see a grouping like that every day, you will regularly be put into situations that are as dangerous or more than the one shown
>>363646Look at this retard shitter and laugh
hey driller chads, is there any actually viable EPC path except the mineral digger?
>>364059Heat pipe + flying nightmare with cryo can be situationally amazing, especially on escort missions
>>364059normal shot centered epc is pretty good
>>364059What is the point of even using it? The Subata is great because it compensates for your short range primary.
>>364103Careful, you'll attract the autist
>>364103look it's the retarded shitbata shill again
>>364103i used the subata for most of my driller career so now i need a break. That's how i feel at least
I'm using Subata with Explosive Reload and there's nothing you can do to stop me
>>364119based, Explosive Reload is fun, kills webspitters in a single shot, and acidspitters and lootbugs usually in two.
>>364059flying nightmare is really good if you can kite groups. Works well with cryo. Heat Pipe OC makes the most sense, mess around with the other upgrades to find a balance that suits youPlasma burn can be good for elims, especially if you have a gunner running a fire build. Run it with cryo to help achieve temperature shock. Don't really care for it otherwise
>>364059heavy hitter + plasma burnRun it with my fuck swarmers build(max ammo, area cool Cryo and neurotoxin grenades) and love it
>>364059normal shot heat pipe with cryo and axe lets you completely remove praetorians from the game solo haz 5 4 player you name it, you can combo them out of existence without wasting more than 1 axe. also lets you bully the shit out of menaces and bulk detonators. flying nightmare heat pipe will let you erase entire hordes of frozen bugs instantly which is pretty fun but I don't think its wholly nessesary when shatter exists
>>364281not heat pipe plasma burn i mean im retard, heavy hitter + plasma burn
>Decide to check the forums for the first time in 6+ months>See a post about a cryotard crying out for people to shoot the frozen bugs
>>364363>Grabs out flamethrowerYeah, I'll shoot 'em alright.

>>364633ikr>let's nerf the one aspect of the gun that no one builds forgood job idiots, normal shots and EPC mining are as strong as ever, and charge builds still suck
>>360830THREADLY REMINDER: there's no anticheat in the game, there's a working Save Editor and WeMod trainer for it that works online. They're both easily googled. Besides this, there's a github with a lot of mods: github dot com slash ArcticEcho slash DRG-ModsYou could, for example, bypass grinding, give yourself blank matrix cores to not waste events or feel like you *have* to do the deep dive and not just the elite. Or maybe you want a specific overclock but you don't want to RNG farm. Or hey, maybe you want to be able to toggle invincibility on if people are griefing. Maybe, there's just a specific cosmetic unlock you want. You decide, anon. That's the beauty of it. It's your game, after all.Think of the possibilities! and remember, play to have fun, not to stash more virtual minerals or watch some stats go up, anon. Don't run missions over and over only for a dopamine hit while the chads over there have all the fun they want without carrot/stick mechanics. Do you remember when games were about having fun for it's own sake, in the moment?
What's the worse class to play a controller on?
>>364722>Do you remember when games were about having fun for it's own sake, in the moment?Yes, I also remember that cheat codes were disabled by default for this reason
>>364733That's why we had gaming magazines, weird gaming legends and cheat code sites, anon. All of which, while it may have been for many reasons, were highly popular. Regardless, if you don't want to use mods/cheats and are having good fun, then I guess you didn't need this reminder. Other anons might like it though! I'm seeing more and more peeps with infinite ammo who enjoy not having to repeatedly strike static objects to shoot. But have fun your own way anon, that's my point anyhow.>>364743Indeed. Trees are nice.

I wonder if I can play DRG on the steam deck
>>364828Probably, it's not a very intensive game. Might run it at a lower res but it's handheld anyway.
>>364891>not a very intensive gamewrongfps goes to utter shit with lots of bugs and effects

>>364930So it runs good then. I have it capped at 120 fps and it usually maintains around there just fine, never see it go below 60

Hey, i just got this gameTHE PHYSICS ARE WONKY FUCK
>>365098jump on a barrel in the space rig
>>365099I USE THE FUCKING ZIPLINE TO RIDE UP TO A PLATFORM AND I BOUNCE OFF IT WHILE TRYING TO CLIMB IT LIKE ITS MADE OF FUCKING TRAMPOLINE
>>365101yeah it's because you don't understand the clambering mechanic yet. If you touch a ledge you're facing at head/shoulder height you will bounce up it. This can save your life if you're falling and abuse it properly lol. It's either the engineer's fault for putting the platform too high or the gunner's fault for putting your zipline too low, or both for not mining out some breathing room at the top
>>365104I think the physics are just fucked, i mean i'm loving it so far but damn these bouncing bullshit bitches
>>365105you'll get used to it
>>365109probably, that and molly wandering off up the fucking wall is a gripe
>>365105physics get more fucked the lower fps you havetry capping at 30 and then playing at 60 while playing the barrel hoop game in the space rig
any one here have a problem with not being able to shoot randomly, its not my mouse i know that because its only with this game?It seems to happen randomly i just cant shoot or pick axe, i can still run around climb/clamber fine see other people shoot and run there isn't any stuttering or typical lag stuff or anything it just doesn't let me shoot or register any clicks on my mouse at at all.
kinda weird to see 4chan recommend games i just played a minute ago. besides that, this is by far the best mission in the game

Failed, a swarm initiated right after I deposited the last MorkiteHad a Grunt swarm, Swarmer Swarm and the last one that killed me was of Normal type. Got yeeted by Grabbers twice while I was reloading, fuckbut thanks to this kind of shit I learned a great deal in proper use of Return to Sender with the rest of the Engie's loadout that can make something impossible become "ok, maybe I can deal with this with good timing"
>>365107All those unpromoted Scouts, and I guarantee not one of them fired a single flare.What is it with Scout mains and just forgetting their Flare Gun exists? I want to fucking *see*, it's just about the most useful thing your class can come up with.You'd think with so many zoomers gravitating to Scout because he's the fast class visibility wouldn't be an issue, but I've had whole missions where they literally never use a single flare. It's unbelievable
>>365152>mfw (low oxygen) mission
>>365643as some one who has most of their play hours in scout its fucking anoying playing anything else because the when i do its almost guaranteed the scouts going to just zoom ahead and not do fucking anything for the team he will ignore shit on the ceiling he wont launch flares and hell just die during swarms because that's the one time he'll stop using his grappling hook.
>>365643I main scout and consider myself a glorified lantern and mobile pickaxe. Sure I can do some damage, pick off priority targets. But my mentality is to light up the goddamn room and go from there. Letting my teammates see means they can do damage more effectively, and stay alive more easily. I honestly dont get it, its not like playing a sweaty scout build somehow removes your flare gun from existence. >>365749I have the same issue. I've just grown accustomed to politely reminding people to flare the ceiling. No one usually gets upset, even after the 5th reminder, because they know its a basic job they should be doing. The more it happens the dumber they feel and thats on them
>>365765> No one usually gets upset, even after the 5th reminder, because they know its a basic job they should be doing. The more it happens the dumber they feel and thats on themI've had dudes be like "PLS LIGHT UP CEILING" like the microsecond they activate a swarm and I was waiting like 5 seconds for the actual spawn waves to show up to maximize light time with the flaregun already out.Like I get it, but damn dude relax
>>365643It's a retard newbie thing. Scout, gunner, driller, engie. They have newb stereotypes. Gunners dying before using thier shield, engie's that set up thier turret as they're getting mobbed, drillers remembering they have drills for hands after the whole lobby pings the dirt. Scout is just the most noticable because having a newb scout or a veteran is literally night and day.

how the fuck can a bunch of level 150+ people fail the big death tower eliminator event, they all were silver level and up on promotions so it wasn't they had never played their classes before but for fuck sake they kept dying me as a fucking digger with the least exp had to keep reviving them and the only one to do any fucking damage to the tower.Digger is the only class i haven't promoted because im not a fan of it so i wasn't fucking stellar since im still learning the ropes with how it handles but for fucks sake i was the only one who didn't go down and i even built trenches and shit for them to hide in if needed.Honestly i just want to know how people so awful at the game stick around, is it the same thought process for people who haven't even unlocked half the skills in Vermintide and then hop in legend and eat shit?
>>366130>how the fuck can a bunch of level 150+ people fail the big death tower eliminator event,By not knowing how to set fuck off platforms and how to nuke the bottom asap. Also never do that shit in PE, perma spawns there will fuck you over.

hybrid refining/liquid morkite tanker drilldozer mission when?
>>366130Omen is one of the few tests in this game for basic competency and teamplay. If even one person goes down or doesn't do their shit correctly it can spiral out of control. There are tons of ways for things to go wrong during an omen:>engi not setting up platforms means people arent easily avoiding radial pulse>anyone dying ground level is difficult to revive. Revive attempts in general are dangerous>uncoordinated attacks on exposed sections means all 3 are a threat for longer>tunnel vision on dealing damage can lead to missing multiple incoming threats and a quick downThere's also the natural intuition to go revive a downed person. If the person sucks or isn't a primary source of damage themselves, its in your interest to carry on without them until you're sure you won't die. Most people don't cut their losses here and it very often leads to even more downs
>driller using cryo and neurotoxin in my last gameIs this actually smart or incredibly retarded?

>>367127Will post more if there's interest.
Is there like a specific "role" i should be doing as gunnerI know scout has to clean it up janny, engi platforms for scout and build cuck sheds, and driller just lights everybody else on fire then makes a straight line to the drop pod.Is there a specific way I need to be placing ziplines?
>>367137On zipline, only ranged enemies can hit you as long as your are not on either end if it. It's very useful for haz 4-5 to avoid most damage during swarms. If using zipline to avoid damage you should obviously prioritise mactera and spitters. For escort, the gunner is excellent to baby sit doretta and to put zipline to oil shale high up so either you or someone else can fill up the oil tanks fast on big chunky oil shale veins. Can't really think of other specific roles for gunner except for going full dakka dakka.
>>367137ziplines aren't that important to gunner's overall gameplan, the big thing gunner does is shoot bugs dead without interruption from reloads (unless you have autocannon) and use shield to pre-emptively protect the team's health, hold position, or make clutch revives as necessary.ziplines are a tool for connecting areas together, especially if you angle them in a way that people can take advantage of the speed. If you play a lot of point extract and refinery where you're going to be hanging out in the same area a lot, you'll have plenty of opportunities to build a zip network that permits easy travel to key areas.Outside of those modes, it just depends on the terrain and both engineer and driller are superior at dealing with that, you instead would deal better with the absence of terrain: sheer cliffs and ravines, or permitting easier access to high oil shale while holding the fuel canister during escort missions.
>>366800You cared enough to make that post. Tsk tsk, anon.
>>367137You are the bug exterminator. Unless it's swarmageddon or you just get a lot of grunts with a god-tier driller, you should be the guy with the biggest head count. The big threats are your bread and butter as well, you should be aiming to do the most damage to the big bads.Alternatively, you're also one of the only sources of true safety. If someone goes down in a bad, bad swarm, you have one of the only reliable ways of getting them up. If people are running out of ammo in the same situation, you can make the space for a safe resupply. So you have to pay attention, stay mobile, and don't use your shield unless it's for a damn good reason. Rock and stone, miner.
>>367140>>367141>>367154Okay good just wanted to make sure I wasn't snubbing some responsibility by just being a murderhobo.
>>367154>you should be the guy with the biggest head count.laughs in turrets
>>367162Dealing any damage and getting an "assist" counts as a kill at the end of round iirc, which is why engi gets so many
>>367163still the highest head count even if gunner supposed to get assists in the same manner, even more if he runs aoe autocannon
>>367154Don't forget to put your shield down to prevent downs from happening in the first place. A nearly dead but shooting dwarf is better than a downed dwarf that takes time to get up

>>367269I run cryo vampire driller with extended magazine subata, and only run lead storm for elims paired with six shooter. You got me with the engi though I swap for warthog and hyper propellant for elims
>>367296>Fat Boy PGL, LUREspretty much another cookie cutter loadout, nothing special about itBut since you're using Sticky, you're a bit based.
Cryo vampire is the big give-away. If you take enough damage to break your shields while using a weapon that instantly freezes all fodder rendering you invincible, you're bad. I find it impossible to die with a flamethrower, the fact that cryo turds unironically use vampire brings a tear to my eye. Please get good.
>>367343I don't think many people are using it as a survival crutch. It's just that the fun of the build pushes you to play recklessly and not get punished as much for it. What does bother me though is what it takes away from the rest of the team, vis a vis offensive drilling. There's so many people not using class utility as it is because they see it as a useless a tool that isn't doing damage. When you introduce a way for these people do to viable damage with the drills it means that they aren't going to use the drills for the things they should be drilling. It's also reinforcing the idea to them that all other class utility is that much more pointless
>>367296I use the Lead storm and magic bullets build, melting down big boys with my gun is fun as fuck. And I honestly don't mind the bunny hopping that much.

>>364722>>364765I'm not baiting on that point though? or any of 'em, really. If people make games about fun again instead of making virtual numbers of their stats slowly go up, the industry will get better. Well, it might. At any rate it's been a while since I had to hit nitra and I never had to farm for an overclock. I only played when I felt like it and didn't have to grind. Bet more people would enjoy the game this way, it's part of the reason reason why most MMR based competitive games are full of unhappy players.
>>367553Your post is nothing but egregious amounts of cope. I think your problem is that you just don't like playing the game as much as you think you do. This game has nothing to do with making virtual numbers go up, using infinite ammo or save-editors doesn't change that.
>>364722I don't want toI already have more than enough cores, all the overclocks and most of the cosmeticsUnlocking shit by actually playing the game is nice, and cheating in videogames is like cooming it feels good in the moment and then you just feel shame.

>>367582Dunno I guess? didn't quantify it nor write a review or anything. I'd say It's 7-8/10 dependingly, but I do hate grinding more than the average player I guess. More solidly an 8 now with all the overlocks to play around and basically just the combat aspect of it, due to not needing to gather anything beyond primary objectives. I liked killing floor with its simplicity though, so YMMV, personally I don't want objectives and such other than the fight/gameplay loop.Without cheating, there is a component of having to watch numbers go up: farm overlocks by RNG, farm the materials to craft them, get the class levels up to promote at least once...You do you anon, but not for me. I'll just shoot bugs and such.>>367589You don't need to if you don't want to, man. It is less important if you've already farmed most things, and have the patience though.I'll say that I'm more of a post nut clarity guy, than post nut shame guy.
>>367622>turret whip with geminiHave fun never having turret ammo
>>367280>>367296>>367476>>367677keep in mind i never said these were any good
I've played less than 10 hours and I'm in love with this game. Thanks for keeping this shit underground, fellas.
>>367705I can kind of understand matrix core unlocks, but infinite ammo? You're taking a huge chunk of the game out. Not having limited resources would make the game boring. The fact that the game has this isn't some carrot and stick mechanic that makes you feel good about seeing red crystal numbers go up. It's a fundamental part of the game that incentivizes cooperation, planning, and efficiency with the resources that you do haveWithout it you are left with mindless weapon spam. And even on a modded high difficulty I don't think this would make the game interesting at all without some significant reworks of AI pathing, dwarf movement, and health / damage balance. Hell, even playing on SSE / haz 6+ mods the most they do is tweak the amount of nitra you need for a resupply. It's an acknowledgement that you need more ammo to take out more enemies, but no concession is made to the need to be efficient If you're having fun then so be it, just seems like a really uninteresting way to play
if there was no ammo mechanic game would be so trivial and boring you could just spam explosives and shoot endlessly it wouldnt even be worth playingmight as well load up desktop destroyer for a better time
What if instead of infinite ammo there were guns with pseudo infinite ammo? Like alien weapons from borderlands 1, which regen energy but have limited amount of it and regen it for quite some time
>>368065Good thing there is an ammo mechanic.>>368096Kiting is too easy in this game given a large enough room.
>mfw Special Powder exists and is easily one of the best OCs in the game>mfw its fun, extremely useful, and has no downsides>mfw 90% of scouts dont use it to its full potential as it requires spatial awareness, skill, and creativity>mfw the devs will never nerf special powder because shitters will inevitably overlook it as a quirky death trap
>>368121special powder only frees up a perk slot from hover boots and even then it still costs ammo. for everything else, there's grappling hook only time id see it being worth having over jumbo shells is in a massive cathedral of a cave fossil mission so you can reach the ceiling with your grappling hook lel
imagine suffering so much brain damage from playing scunt you geniunely think special powder is anything but a meme and geniunely consider using shotgun anyway
>>368130Disagree, special powder is also a get out of jail free card that allows you to flee any swarm at any moment while also dealing damage to everything in front of you. It's an important part of evasive strategy on haz5/6 when used properly.
>>368186>a get out of jail free card that allows you to flee any swarm at any momentcalled grappling hook
>>368189A grappling hook with a recharge time that in that situation you probably need to turn around, aim, and fire, which means you might get hit more. Special powdering into the air instead also lets you save the grapple use to make sure you land from the escape safely. Or, say, locate a downed teammate and grapple straight to them.
>>368190>crutching on special powderembarrassing
>>368192>i-it's not that useful!>i-it's too useful! crutch!Make up your fucking mind
>>368193crutches aren't useful when you don't need them and they cost something to maintain
>>368195>crutches aren't useful when you don't need themso is everything else when you don't need it, what mental retardation is this
>>367827>I can kind of understand matrix core unlocks, but infinite ammo? You're taking a huge chunk of the game out. I am. It's not a good chunk. Compared to the usual scrounging around for ammo, here you have to:1- find it as usual2- hit it for a while 3- call the mule to deposit it OR, in missions without a mule, actually go back and forth to deposit it at the minehead.4- call down the ammo boxbonus: it's limited but FFA and you'll have to sometimes deal with people stealing ammo/having their ammo stolen/whining....or or or, you can bypass all that and shoot bugs. I don't know man. It's like boring grindy games which are basically slot machines. People don't enjoy them, but still play them due to addictive carrot/stick mechanics. AI reworks, custom classes, different balance would all help, but that's beyond simple mods/trainers out at the moment.It would definitely be superior if like >>368096 suggests the ammo was pseudo infinite, and a strategic/tactical issue, but didn't require being a chinese gold farmer to enjoy it. For now, I'd say this is the best solution, and running out of ammo is rare enough that it's mostly principles/peace of mind anyway.
I'd be okay with an infinite ammo source if they added an infinite length defense mission type thing. Something like how warframe has where you go 5 waves and can either evac there and end the mission or keep going for better rewards until shit gets too spicy and you don't think you'll survive the next 5
>>368237Oh thank you for the spiritual (you) my friend.>>368240Aye, that would also be cool. I guess the closest we got to a defence/wave based mode is the escort mission, but that's marred by the chinese ricer refueling phase. Some no nonsense, no inanimate object hitting, defence mode where you have to repair your position or some shit would be cool.
>>368225It's basic economics.I understand that special powder can be fun to use (it was the first scout oc i got), but it doesn't mean it's super duper good just because it /feels/ really cool and epic skillful win to not have to turn around and fly across the room fast when you get caught out because your positioning is bad and you aren't paying attention to your grapple cooldownIt's viable, but it's not like it's underrated just because its skill floor to be marginally useful is a little bit above ground. The opportunity cost is simply too much regardless of how well you use it, especially if you're in a cave that isn't even longer or wider than your max grapple length. Maybe if you're playing with a controller and you can't turn to grapple away from enemies very fast then I'd say yeah ok whatever, but still deride you for playing fps with a fucking controller
>>368235>plays first person dwarf mining game>complains about having to mine to accomplish thingsone day you'll understand that what goes down has to come up, and what goes up must come downbut i dont think it will be today. perhaps you can go play a game for disgusting leaf lovers in the meantime?

>>368235>It's like boring grindy games which are basically slot machines. People don't enjoy them, but still play them due to addictive carrot/stick mechanicsExcept resource / team management doesn't fall into this category. The fact you think it does means you aren't enjoying the cooperative nature of the game. And that's fine if you don't, but it makes absolutely no sense to relate fun from challenge, social interaction and shared goals to a slot machine. People actually enjoy working together, believe it or not>...or or or, you can bypass all that and shoot bugsYea but now you're just projecting what you think is the most fun aspect of the game and assuming everyone is some unenlightened pleb for not enjoying a distilled version of it. I mean shit, its a simple exercise to deconstruct the bug shooting in this game into a trivial matter that isn't interesting. Instead of doing these threadly reminders and pretending you are some savior that will free people from fake fun, you should look inward. Free yourself from the idea that everyone needs to enjoy things the same way you do

Update that removes scouts and bans all scout mains when?
I scout main just to prevent worse people from taking up the slot
>>368991>scout main plays scout anywayWhat do?
Scouts only started to bother me after I started playing scout. You have enough ammo to keep every room lit up the entire cave if it's a short mission, and on long missions you can keep everything lit up when you're fighting or scanning for minerals. Why would you pick anything but ammo for your flare gun?
>>368571it doesn't work on opressors eitheram i getting it wrong? i thought it let you do damage from any side hence AP
>>369051armor piercing only works on armor that can be destroyedunbreakable armor is unbreakableif you want to shoot through things, that's what blowthrough rounds are for.
>>369059okay what has armor? only dreadnaughts?
>>369102everything in glyphid list that has half-filled armor icon is breakable armor
>>369059do blowthrough rounds actually pierce unbreakable armor? pretty sure they don't and only exist to hit multiple bugs at once
>>368829Vertical maps definitely separate the wheat from the chaff.
>>369117Blowthrough rounds will pierce one enemy that has heavy armor without dealing damage. It will then go through and potentially hit something behind that enemy.
>>369116I have not seen that, should i read the bestiary?
>>369051Every glyphid has some armor. Grunts and slashers have light armor, which is broken very easily but still offers a slight bit of DR. AP rounds help here but are unnecessary.Guards, praetorians, shellbacks, and the Twins have heavy armor, which blocks all damage until destroyed. This is what AP rounds helps with the most.Oppressors, Dreadnoughts, and Hiveguards have unbreakable armor. AP does not work on them. The dreadnoughts' yellow health bar is not armor either.As a rule of thumb, blow through rounds are better than AP. A few exceptions exist.
>>369126that seems pretty bad, hopefully AP rounds get a buff
>>369127AP rounds are good, just not as generally useful as blowthrough. Examples include: the railgun OC for the 40mm PGL, using Leadstorm while you sit on a zipline (harder to strafe to weakpoints), any time you have to fight shellbacks (one of the worst enemies), and the m1000 now has AP and BT on different tiers, meaning you can pick both.
>>369132Also when using Big Bertha Thunderhead the AP rounds become great.
>>369132needs a buff then to not have it be outclassed
>>369134they really don't, AP is better on classic aoe spam since AOE seems to deal full armor damage stripping swathes of bugs at once
>>369134AP on thunderhead is wild, you fire once into a pile of grunts and they all look like oversized swarmers all stripped naked and shit. Its kinda nice against Praes since you can just completely strip them down from a couple shots and your team doesn't have to shimmy around to its ass to kill it but at the same time Praes are such a non-threat. Shame Oppressors can't take armor damage but maybe that'd just make them as easy as Praes.
ap sucks lol everyone on the team should just shoot the bugs in the fucking face
i wish this game was treating itself more serious when pinging BET-C my dwarf said WHAT A HECKIN CHONKER i had big urge to alt + f4
>>369200but then how would we get posts like this?
>>369186go shoot shellback in the face and see how it turns out
I got bullet hell on my lead stormor as i like to call it, AIMBOT ASSFUCKER
>>369384>bullet hellmore like bullet fart
I just finished powerleveling driller all the way to gold. i left him unleveled until everyone else was gold as a jokeWhat did i think of it? What build / balance related questions was i asked?
>>369402any reason not to go full satchel charge quantity?
>>369404driller job make erf go boom kableweyso no
>>369402autismalso no one cares
>>369404I find myself running a lot of both. At the moment i've been mostly sticking to 2 or 3 charges, i should try out 4 againThe big explosion and huge damage can be really nice on occasion, and with the OP as fuck sticky flames i don't find myself a need for small explosions all that often. Both are very great though. If anything the biggest downside of big aoe c4 is because you need to make quite some distance before detonating, but doing it while midair, using Dash, etc all helpAnd yes, you heard it right, 3 charges. 3 charges have this big problem where you only get 1 per ressuply which is awful for any sort of long mission, but if you're the kind that does stuff fast and gets to have high ammo efficiency so they can last a long while without ressuply, it is nice because 3 charges are the perfect balance for as long as ressuplies aren't a thing. I also play a lot solo, which makes the issue of less charges from ressuply less problematic, and the fact i get to bring more c4 early on more substantial.Additionally, making your c4 focused on big fucking damage will absolutely melt dreadnoughts. The regular dreadnoughts will lose nearly an entire armor cycle in solo haz 5 when you land a very well placed c4 right in their butts
>>369391NIGGERS I SAIDWOULD YOU?
>>368709You can try walking towards them anon. Pic related. May not work if they're on much lower ground.I also figured out recently that their projectiles can be destroyed.
>>369416dangi was hoping i could draw out some drawfags who play this
This may be a bit off topic but I feel it applies.My headphones broke and are about twelve years an antique and I need a new pair so I gotta know what works best for DRG that other people use. It's basically the one game I really need good headphones for, listening for a det in the distance or a spitter following and whatnot.
Why doesnt this game have more enemy types, waste of potential
>>369490I myself dont really find the need for headphones, i played without for 500+ hours and could hear these things just fine.Howhever i just got my first headset recently and it does feel pretty good, less about giving me an edge in the game (it helps more for competitive shooters like CSGO) but more about making me feel better and realise tiny sound effects i never noticed before.I can't really compare this headset to anything else which means i can't make any criticism on it, but i got the Hyperx Cloud Stinger, it's a mid tier one at $50. I don't feel like i'm missing out in any sound, i just did like 15+ haz 5 missions and EDD with them and yeah it was pretty good.
>>369500forgot to mentionI can say that it's really comfortable though, doesn't get hot on ears, the memory foam is very nice, and it's pretty light (275 grams)
>tfw you bounce/vault over a barrel and it sends you flying for maximum efficiency post-mission forging
did we get the shit gun yet
>>369581for now we have stubby, subata, boomstick and G2 so pick whatever shit gun you want
>>369581not yet>>369632gitgud shitter
man I can't get over the turret whip. I know it's not the most god tier thing but its a lot of fun. I think its the sound effect that gets me, shit is so satisfying
>join salvage mission for assignment>bronze 1 driller makes a shitty cum jar shaped bunker>roll with it so hopefully this will teach him a lesson about bunkerfagging>barely survive trying to stop waves hiding behind an oppressor crawling down the cum jar neck and everyone throwing their own grenades on each other>try to ask the driller if he saw the problem with his idea>doesn't say a thing and immediately starts making cum jar 2 for the fuel pod>proceed to wipe>rejoin salvage mission for assignment>new driller is a diamond 3, nice>new driller literally only plays driller judging by his overall level, not nice>new driller ALSO MAKES A FUCKING CUM JAR SHAPED BUNKER>ignore uplink and proceed to prevent oppressors and rollers from destroying them from surface>detonator spawns and barely misses exploding right on top of them>thankfully fuel pod is a normal and simple ride because the area was made smooth and clutter was removed for better sightlines, driller still believed he was in the right thoughFUCK BUNKERFAGS AND FUCK RETARDED DRILLERS GIVING MY FAVOURITE CLASS A BAD NAME
>>369700>CUM JAR SHAPEDthe fuck is this even supposed to mean
>>369706you must be 18 or older to use this site
>>369708not everyone is drilltard incel and knows the shapes of every cum jar you absolute fucking retard
>>369490use some good speakers and you can really feel the ambience
JUST PROMOTED GUNNER AND GONNA TRY OUT HIS BIG FUCKHUGE CANNON PRIMARY
>>369700Are you sure that the driller wasn't a bronze 2? Because I literally did that last night in the Magma Core, although I didn't hear anyone say anything about my shitty bunker.
>>369706means the driller drills the objective down a little, and then puts down a c4, jumps out, detonates it, then throws another one down, detonates. makes a jar shape thats hard to get the fuck out of, even harder to shoot all the shit coming down the wallsbetter to just cap off the top, and then make a tunnel leading up to an opening where bugs can stream in going in a line for a killing hole if you go bunker, and then make another hole out to the drop pod when its ready
>>369832yeah thats a suicidal grave unless you have any engineer that can salvage it and even then the driller needs to have his head screwed on (already proven to be not the case) in case a detonator comes knocking
>>369374found out last night that a driller can actually drill its armor off quite effectively
>>369895fucking hate when they do that without warning on salvage. Worst part is they think they're doing everyone a favor and then proceed to not clean it up, flatten the floor, widen the space, create exits, etc. It's astounding how many drillers fail to use their drillsThe new "strat" I've come across recently is for them to drill the uplink down so that the top of it is flush with the ground above. And while I get the idea (remove the uplink as a line of sight obstruction) they have failed to grasp basic geometry. We're now doing the uplink in a tiny sliver of the upper sphere, Less space to run around and we can't even jump without leaving the area
>>369969you do realise the idea behind that is not even line of sight, but moreso movement obstruction?But yes, that strat is sort of stupid. Works good with Black Boxes though as they're nowhere as tall
>>369969yeah you're not supposed to drill the uplink down you just pickaxe it down a single cell on the xy axis and 2 cells on the z so it gives more space to run around and doesnt obstruct the field of fire
>>369832>2 c4 to make a bunkerthe fuck1 already makes a bigass room
>drillerfags who think bunkering is the best trat>retards who hamper with the fuel cell / uplink in any way possible>gunners with the small-ass cuck shield>engineers with hyperpropellant on critical weakness>scouts in generalI hope the update with the new guns comes out so I have something else to focus other than shitty teammates
>>370051maybe take a fucking break autistic retard
>>370051How are you guys so fucking cynical and angry over this game ITT? The community is far better than the average, most h5 lobbies are reliable and you guys seem to get pissed over the smallest of shit>waah bad teammates always garbage etcI know anecdotal evidence isn't very neat but i myself find h5 players perfectly fine. If you find yourself struggling in haz 5, have you perhaps considered the fact you're the only common denominator?It's fucking sad. This is one of the easiest multiplayer games to be happy in by far but you guys really manage to get mad over it, insult others over build preference or insignificant shit. Take a break or something until you're feeling better towards the game instead of shitting up an otherwise comfy general.
>>370182Are you new here?We dont speak sense in videogames boards on 4chan.
>>370182>insult others over build preferenceyou pick garbage you get rightfully shat on, deal with it shitter
>>360830Was interested in playing this game a few months ago but couldn't convince any frens to get it, is this game still alive and are there people here who up for playing together?
>>370190I've been playing with complete strangers for 700 hours and not once have I spoken a single word to them.Game's playable with randoms on all of the difficulties it offers. Having friends might improve your experience but it's not a slouch when the best communication tool in the absence of voice comms is to ping shit. Most people get the message.
>>370190>are there people here who up for playing together?no play solo or with randoms like a normal person you casual shitter
>>370187>too braindead and uncreative to experiment>too shit to perform with things they're not ultra used to>end up metafagging stupidly with awful opinions on a game where nearly any reasonable attempt at a build you make is strong, while shitting on half the weapons in the game after devs buff just about everything into a good level of powerthis is you ^
>>370190this general literally never actually plays the game it just seethes endlessly about whatever there is to seethethe game is alive and well, and will be even more alive in the next big update. Playing multiplayer in mid and high difficulties is super easy and finding randos to play with is reliable.
>>370195>be a retared chimp>be nothing and nobody>run garbage to be a pretend speshul snowflake>seethe eternally when called outthis is you ^
>>370198>run garbage while getting highest killcount every gameyes that is me
Not only retarded but also delusional. Feel free to kys.
>>369391Even if I die afterwards
>>370200who are you replying to?
figure it out
>>370210this guy is in like every general and he is always just being rude to someone or being irrelevant in gneeralhe has a tendency to not (you) the people he is arguing with
>>370182Honestly coming here and venting about the shit that annoys me is helpful. I've been playing for 700+ hours and it's extremely rare for me to find teammates of my level even on Haz 5. Even the slightest shit going wrong can annoy meYou're right, this game is easy but I'd rather anonymously ree about autismos and their minor annoyances rather than actually take it out on my teammates. I'm not gonna rage at the Bronze 1 Gunner for not knowing how to use shields competently.
>>370207oh? a fellow DRG lewd fan?
>>370326Yea i'm kinda the same way as you. There's no point being mad at teammates in game its just gonna bring everyone down. Plus there are times I go in with the mindset of helping greenbeards. Most people appreciate it when you take the time to help them
I am convinced that high levels are just numbersEvery single +100 player rank players I've seen have been utter dogshit, all the way to around 600 player rankHow can you play one game for so long and yet be so bad?
>>370014some brainlets don't take extra carve radius
>>370488sometimes you get burnt out after becoming a high level, drop the game for a couple months while you play other stuff, come back when there's an update, but you've forgotten half the stuff and lost your muscle memory
