    I tend to appear at around 10, myself.
    How much was the new toy, Decks?

    15,000. You can use all the same attachments you've unlocked for the previous gun which eases the pain a touch.

    Fuck me, I'm not even at half that money.

    I'll continue to act like this part of the game doesn't exist for a while then...

    I'd have a look at setting up a custom class then. Some of the muzzles and stuff make a big difference to your gun accuracy. Also laser sights are cool although they do give away your position. You also get flashbangs by default which are a lot more helpful than smoke.

    Is there stuff I can already use which isn't available in the default classes? Or am I gonna have to spend money?

    Flashbangs mainly. The muzzles and stuff aren't expensive though and you're going to need them for future guns anyway.

    I'll have to look into it, flashbangs do seem useful whenever some fucker used them on me.

    Had my first games with humans. All tutorial missions. Even if though theyw eren't speaking - German and French players - it was still fun.

    THe PS4 interface is a bit confusing though.

    Well me, McGeeza, Stevas and Badabing didn't have a lot of luck against everyone we played with but this was our first victory.

    Huh.

    So yeah, the signal jammer is pretty broken. Apparently you can even hide it on other floors on some fucking maps.

    As we suspected, time was getting shaved off at certain points, we just didn't know exactly how; when the entire defending team is wiped out, the clock drops to a minute.

    Matchmaking seems broken too. At the very least give me an indication of the level of whoever I'm playing against, or rotate squads, so we aren't getting our ass handed to us repeatedly all bloody night...

    Edit: I do so love that you captured my "get down y'cunt"

    Yeah definitely needs some balancing on the matchmaking, it was obvious we were going up against people that had unlocked stuff that was really helping them out.

    I'm not so concerned about being matched against better players. Don't even mind better guns for higher ranks. What worries me is, due to the nature of competitive games, glitches will be found and exploits used.

    Classic example this evening was that signal jammer which essentially made the map unwinnable. Eventually even the worst players (like me) will have all the unlocks and enough experience to know how to abuse them. Game will be dead at that point unless the devs are incredibly active in fixing this sort of crap.

    Open betas and the like are most often a marketing exercise but in this case a few weeks could have made a real difference.

    Edit: and don't get me started on the Aim Controller drift, the severity of which seems strongly linked to certain maps.

    It was appropriate after our defeats.

    Here's that double then triple kill, which was enjoyable but ultimately futile.

    Got my camera mounted up high now so I can get into this properly, it was awkward before when it was about 2ft off the ground.

    The drift is 100% down to your setup, I've pretty much entirely eliminated now. This is pretty helpful.

    Also apologies for ignoring invites, I'm normally just finishing when you send them. Should be on a bit later tonight.

    @Decks Useful vid but it doesn't explain why tracking is great on some maps then completely breaks on others.

    Dunno but I had it really bad at the start, after fucking about with my setup a bit I haven't had a problem for days now.

    Concerning for me, and I said as much last night, the game struggled to find anyone for us to play against, and when it did, it clearly found opponents far higher than us (signal jammer is unlocked at lvl21, and we were all 6 and under).

    I haven't had any problems finding games but I imagine joining as a team limits your options a lot. I think they need to add a few other game types into rotation or people are going to lose interest pretty quickly. Capture the flag would work pretty well.

    @IronGiant if you have an aim this is a no-brainer.

    So we managed to get someone on our team who had unlocked the jammer last night; tbh, it just highlighted how broken it is.

    On certain maps, that is. It's a nice idea, but you shouldn't be able to deploy one on a different floor.

    For all it's issues - and despite the fact I'd normally avoid shootbanginnaface online like I would a rectal examination - it's still the most fun I've actually had gaming for bloody years, so, yeah, probably.

    Having said that, we stuck it out till gone half one yesterday, so it kinda depends on how awake I am later*.


    * I know it doesn't, I know I'll be on later.

    Yeah I'm enjoying it a lot. Not sure how long is left before the unemployed and stoners get too good at it to compete though. It's definitely getting tougher all the time.
