    You are right, I should take up his mantle like some of you lot and speak of my single handed tales of being the best in the world ;)

    To be fair to Goodform, Warframe is a cracking game.

    I keep hearing that but it was so bad at launch I haven't been able to bring myself to try it again.

    I mostly suck at shooters these days, but I've won 5 or 6 matches, and in at least two of those I wasn't even the weakest link.

    Luck plus a bit of smart play plus a bit more luck can take you a long way.

    Matchmaking definitely got flakey over the weekend.

    It's a tremendous game, it's a shame that even with all the tools they've given you to make playing with randoms as simple as possible people manage to be complete fuckwits. The amount of times someone on your squad splits off during the drop is ridiculous, if they don't like where the dropmaster is going then they have the tools to say where they want to go, instead they just fuck off by themselves. I think they should remove the split up option for teams of randoms.

    It's good to split just before landing though so you don't all go to the same house/chest to loot.

    I've thought the same about not letting people split off, although it may lead to trolls just dropping you in the shit every time for the lols.

    My main frustration today has been people taking potshots (often with mid-range weapons) at enemies that had no idea we existed and are not in our way at all. They seem to feel obliged to shoot an enemy just because they can see them. No strategy!

    Splitting before landing is fine, splitting so you're a kilometre away from your squad is nobbish.

    @Mekanik:
    Sent you an FR, Didn't we have a few matches of BFBC2 back in the day?

    Just had my first 4 matches, still to get a single kill. Though I think I did kill one dude but maybe just the finishing blow so it doesn't count?

    The game is smooth as all hell and it's definitely something I'll try to stick with a bit...Just hoping to win something eventually...

    Edit: My Origin username: Stivayou

    I finally won a game, but there was only 2 of us. I died before even the first circle came in. Got re-spawned about 5 minutes later proceeded to own the rest of the game with a random after that.

    Awesome feeling, although 900xp for winning is rather stingy.

    Anyone else wanting to add folk for PC, I'm Gibroon on Origin.

    Quite enjoying it, finally getting the hang of certain weapons but need a bit more time with the different legends and ultimates.

    I played so much of this over the weekend that I feel almost hungover. Won a couple of games though. \o/

    Yeah me too.
    On PC, the game crashes about 30-40 seconds after landing on the ground.
    I had a go on the PS4 this weekend and I'm in an utter state of confusion for the most part.

    I struggle to find a weapon when we land.
    I struggle to figure out where the enemy is or where they run off to after initial engagement.
    I thought I could have 2 guns but after picking up a second, toggling between the two just seems to give me the same shotgun with the same 8 shells in it and no spare ammo.
    After dying and spectating, I see people asking for a specific type of ammo (no clue how) and their teammates dropping said type of ammo for them (no clue how).

    At some point I was teamed up to some guy who had quite a lot of kills, so after I inevitably snuffed it early on, I just spectated him for the rest of the match. He managed to land shots at someone mid range where I didn't actually manage to make out the enemy at that distance.

    In a close combat fight, the enemy ran out of a building and dropped a long way down. He jumped down after. I completely lost track of the enemy. The guy landed, spun in the right direction and started laying into him.

    It's entertaining alright but I constantly feel out of my depth.

    Did you pick up the same gun twice?

    To ping needed ammo, open the inventory menu, look at the weapons you have - each has the ammo icon it needs. Ping the icon.

    To drop stuff, open the inventory menu, roll over any of the stuff you have and there will be a command to 'drop'.

    I DON'T LIKE BATTLE ROYALE GAMES
    I LIKE THIS
    WHAT

    For real, this is very good fun. Still not a fan of BR as a whole, but I can overlook that with some fun character classes (I'll never get bored of Pathfinder or Caustic), great weapons (Wingman! My go to 100% of the time!) and the best indirect communication system since... BFBC2? Pinging isn't new, but it's sorely underused by most devs. Respawn nailed it with this one.

    Just wish I wasn't at work. I want to grapple people and fly in with a Wingman at their face more, or keep throwing gas bombs on people who are down'd so they can slowly choke to death.

    This game is very good.

    Had a couple of players quitting the group after, due to their stupidity, dying within 60 seconds. Happened last night, I was jump master so naturally went straight for a high loot area.

    60 seconds later. Both dead. 30 seconds later both quit. I went on solo for the entire game and was 2nd after taking out two squads by sniping them from the big dinosaur skeleton and lobbing Caustic's gas bomb from up high.

    Fun times.

    Won my 2nd ever game on PC last night and my first ever one on PS4 today. Me and my son carried a lvl 1 pathfinder to what must have been his first ever win! Felt good.

    Sometimes this game makes me feel like I stand a chance. Then the opposition champion team screen pops up with a level 27 Lifeline with 226
    kills!!!!

    WTF?!?!

    Those team screens showing number of kills seem bugged to me. Mine often shows "0 kills" which I can assure you is not correct :p

    It is nice though when you see those big ticket MVP players pop up on the Champion screen, and then within 5 minutes you hear "The Champion has been killed".

    Also being on that screen yourself, you do feel a little bit more pressure not to put in an embarrassing performance.

    @monkman76 it's the total kills with that champion, so if you've not used them before it would be correct

    Someone killed me yesterday that had 667 kills.

    I assume they're unemployed, but also pretty competent.

    Was just about to say that. I wondered for a while until I figured out that each legend has their own banner card with stat trackers.
