    Night after night, i keep coming back to the MP. I havent even finished the story yet because the MP keeps distracting me!

    Its a brilliantly made MP mode, fair play to Naughty Dog. There is so much strategy to it and im glad that someone has finally managed to provide a stealthy MP that punishes people who run and gun.

    My strategy of choice is hit all the supply points ASAP - gather as much stuff as possible, make as many bombs as i can and drop them in sneaky places. I always equip some body armour as soon as i can too, which has saved my buttocks many a time.

    Had a brilliant moment last night too where i was left in a two-on-one situation - in situations like this, the game forces you to actually think and i quickly came up with a great idea.

    The two enemies had no idea where i was, so both were sprinting around like lunatics trying to draw me out. In fact, one ran pretty much straight past me but i resisted the urge to shoot. I managed to get to the other end of the map (Bills town i believe) into a small warehouse.

    I scraped some supplies together and managed to fashion one bomb and one molotov - i set the bomb just inside one of the entrances, then i randomly fired two shots of my revolver into the wall, attracting their attention.

    Like clockwork, one of them came into that entrance and stepped on the bomb. I used listen mode and i could see the other one moving slowly towards his mate. I prepped the molotov and lobbed it towards the downed enemy : BANG!, two screaming, burning enemies :cool:

    Brilliant. Fucking. Game.

    It took a couple games for us to get going last night but then we hit the sweet spot.  

    A good few stupid close games (which we won naturally) thanks for the fun last night guys.

    I should be on for a bit tonight, and should hopefully have a working headset set up too :p

    That last round last night was my last round in week 12 too!
    And again got a satisfying shiv. I am too fond of that smoke bomb + shiv combo.

    Awesome. I should be on from 9 until 11.

    I keep trying to get on but I've got a girlfriend who fucking hates me.
  • Deleted user 2 July 2013 22:05:57

    Your missing us get our asses handed to us,  so on a way we all have people that hate us.

    Could not play for shit today. Now to take the dog for a walk before the house gets covered in excrement.
  • Deleted user 2 July 2013 22:30:47
    I was the other person in with ye there (Rushduck).

    What a disaster! Lost 100% of population in week 6. Played a game afterwards and was about to hit 3 members of the other team with a molotov and my connection went kaput.

    Time to go read a book for the remainder of the evening, i think!

    Aiming is getting better and better with practice. Playing a healer / support guy and it's a blast. Healing others helps, but is not completely overpowering. Really well designed.

    Continued with single player too, but multiplayer is so much fun...

    There hasn't been a game since Red Dead Redemption that grabbed me like this. GOTY for me surely.

    I dropped the healing perk yesterday in favour of trying to be a ninja, I used the healing one for a Challenge during one of the week ends (get 20 heals over 3 days).

    I ended up getting nearly 60 heals on my counter somehow in one game with you guys, during that round on Lakeside. Crazy stuff.

    But yeah, yesterday I couldn't get in a groove, and we ended up unfairly matched against teams full of higher levels.

    Had trouble getting in to people's games last night and couldn't tell why my headset mic wasn't working (was as simple as selecting a different output device in the end!), but I was on fire for a lot of last night. Could have done with joining your games to even things out a bit!

    I might be on for a little bit tonight (have work to do though so won't be on ages), so if peeps are up for some organised games we can set a time and get some invites out?

    I did the same thing btw, Kinky, with my headset. Forgot I had to set the mic/voice device as well, doh. It was working for me last night, though everyone sounded quite distant and crackly, so I'll have to fiddle with the settings (unless the quality really is just that bad).

    Alright! I'm new round these parts. Quite fancy a decent game. My psn is bigsur55 if anyone fancies playing? Is it okay to add people here too?

    My internet connection conspired against myself and WeakOrbit having some multiplayer hijinks earlier, so gonna have a bash in another bash in an hour or so if anyone's interested.
  • Deleted user 16 July 2013 13:08:12
    Anyone around for a few games of this on wednesday at some point?

    You ranked 4475 out of 1,147,030
    You'd think I'd be pleased, but no. Because for my last day it decided to shove me into a match that was nearly over, so there was no fucking way I could complete the Fireflies Attack challenge. I wonder how much higher I would have been if I had lost fewer survivors. Seriously, that's a real fucking flaw that's messed up many challenges for me throughout the game. It should at least give you an extra day to complete it if it does that. Worse it when the match just ends before it even begins, so you lose -100 supplies and there's nothing you can do about it.

    Absolutely livid. Having been this fucking angry playing a game since beating those time trials in Crash Team Racing way back in the day.

    *sigh* Guess I'll have to do it again.

    I don't know if anyone else is finding this, but I'm getting some awful laggy matches lately.
    Being matched up with others with one or even zero bars of latency and standing over someone I've downed, in the midst of finishing them off only to find they spring back up and I'm on the floor being killed, very weird.
    I'm in week 11 and it's making me very nervous!

    Really enjoying the new interrogation mode, its great how each game switches from the cautious stealthy pace when trying to get five interrogations, to the much more frantic rush once one team's safe has been revealed.

    Been back on this tonight, first time in over a month (don't really know why I stopped playing) and interrogation is a good addition. Nice tactical edge to it, even though I was fucking abysmal!

    Sorry for the necromancy but I thought this might rise in popularity with the ps4 release incoming. I am thinking of ordering a north american PSN copy so that I can avoid the censorship of the EU version. Anyone know of a reason not to do this? I'll still be ok to play with friends who own an EU copy right? Guess I might miss out on the crossbuy DLC for my EU ps3 version.

    The multiplayer is considerably censored on both PS3 and PS4 in PAL territories. No decapitations or dismemberment - Blame Germany. Torture porn addiction aside I felt that these add to the brutal atmosphere of the single player and that the lack of the detracts a little from the multiplayer. Why was it only the multiplayer that was censored? Beats me.
