Because MAX's can go inside biolabs, and even poverty MAX's can be effective.
An effective AV harasser requires a few thousand certs investment, and a good AI one, even more. You also generally require an offsider for effective usage.
being like this without camo or hat on flash reminds me of when i started playing

I see we're now on the level of /dsg/ but with a fraction of the traffic.
>a good AI harasser requires more than a few thousand certs investment to be effective
This isn't true, at least for the TR.
I dropped 550 certs on the marauder-H and was instantly racking up dozens of kills, on an otherwise stock harasser. Consistent killstreaks wherever I went.
Adding thermals and more reserve ammo later were just quality of life improvements, same as adding fire suppression and stealth ranks.
Take a break. Play something else. Read a book, get a cup of coffee, watch some videos, whatever.
If you're having a shit night, you'll only get pissed off and start playing even worse.
>wow it's fucking nothing
Now the spawn room can be shelled by not one but two pairs of AV turrets as well as the surrounding tanks!
Why the hell are people still able to do this? Its ridiculous.
That's a shitterwagon you built.
A real TR approved farmwagon requires at least 12 rounds in the gun/thermals (the extra rounds are a very noticable improvement - 14 is ideal, but a huge cert sink), maxed out comp/prox (prox for low/med pop bases, comp for high - being able to stomach 3 rockets and still keep rolling is very useful), maxed out fire-sup (extremely good for the inevitable swarm of bullets you'll take, escaping death, and repping without getting out - this isn't quality of life - this is a requirement), and at least a rank or two in racer/rival for accel/reverse to get out of dodge. Stealth is the poor mans choice, and a bad one at that. Mineguard at least prevents you being 1-2 punched by heavies with AV grenades.
The level of effectiveness increases dramatically once you've gotten the comp armor / prox radar, and the others together make you far more effective.
I mean, I drove a poverty wagon for an outfitmate, much like you the one you speak of, the other day - it is absolutely awful compared to a certed out one.
They aren't quality of life improvements, they're requirements for getting to the best farms. Being able to weave in and out and stomach extra tank rounds to get to that foot zerg is something you cannot do in a vanilla harasser.
I think the thing here is, that your idea of effective is my idea of mediocrity. Once you've gotten used to a fully certed harasser, default ones are absolute shit in comparison. A MAX on the other hand, doesn't so much require this. A couple ranks of flak, and a 650 cert secondary AI gun, and you're set.
it's the first impression that counts, anon. if a new feature doesn't immediately wow, then it's dead in the water and people checking it out will leave just as soon as they come
Flash grenades are fucking great now.
On a related note, did anyone on Coonery just get DC'd?
I'm new and I reached br15 with TR. I enjoyed playing as TR, but I was thinking about switching to some other empire because people said they aren't really that good. Should I switch to some other empire? If I should, which one?
I love them too. They're so fucking good now. You can actually clear rooms with them. Feels operator as fuck to hurl a flash in and then go in directly afterwards.
I used to regret that I fully certed grenade bando on my LA. No longer.
what server are you on?
emeralds tr are shit, if you want to play tr come to connery.
if you play on one of the communist servers then i dont know, but the same concept applies. TR is not inherently bad, its the middle of the road as far as power goes, its not as underpowered as NC, but not as overpowered as VS. For whatever reason different servers have radically different play qualities on their different factions though. I cant figureout why this is, but it is.
I play on connery actually. The people there are really nice and I love it. I'll probably stay but I was just wondering because I wondered If investing in an empire that people look down is a bad choice.
HOLY SHIT AN UNIRONICAL SHITTR
IT'S BEEN LIKE 2 YEARS
JESUS FUCKING CHRIST
WHAT THE FUCK
WHAT THE SHIT
Avoid NC. They are huge shitters on Connery. You'd do well to find a decent outfit to run with if you're sticking in TR. It can make your play experience much more fun. I wouldn't be playing if I didn't have a nice group of guys to run with. I hear foxhound has a very good community going in terms of actually doing effective ops, and being a nice group of guys. Honestly, I'd probably join them if I wasn't tied into my old outfit by a number of good pals I'd made there.
come remove spacecommies roleplaying nazis with us
They win the most alerts, across all servers. This is a statistic that is above your shitty gunvsgun comparisons or anything specific, because it summarizes the strenghts of the entire faction. You can argue specific cases all you want, but the fact remains the most alerts are won by vs, followed by tr, and then nc. This is not the case on every server, on some things are different, this is a result to different server metas and playstyles, but it all averages out across all servers, to result in the true unbiased answer.
I think you might have missed the context of the conversation, friend.
That "shitterwagon" as you put it, with just the 550 certs sunk on unlock the base marauder on an otherwise certless harasser, is plenty enough to GET LOTS OF KILLS AND BE EFFECTIVE.
I know this from experience. I ran with that for a solid month before doing any upgrading, and nowadays my TR harasser is of course completely maxed because why the fuck not?
I can now, just as I could with nothing but the weapon unlocked, hop in my solo marauder harasser, eyeball the map for the telltale signs of a sweet farm, drive up to any number of the good positions at most bases, and just spam key spots and switch positions when necessary and rack up a hundred kills and only a few or zero deaths from a single battle.
There's no "idea of effective/mediocrity" about it. Killstreaks that last for dozens of kills or more, that depend way more on map knowledge and situational awareness than any unlocks or upgrades on the vehicle itself beyond the anti-infantry weapon.
Obviously I have an even easier time of it with more upgrades, but even maxing everything did not radically change my capacity to obliterate infantry clusters all by myself.
Our playstyles may be very different, but this is my experience going it solo and I'm not even particularly skilled at the game. That's just how good the marauder is.
Every faction's certless max can do pretty okay in the right circumstances.
Hell, having one gun arm and one AV arm is actually an advantage against double-gun arm maxes, and can still blitz regular infantry and at least plink at heavy armor.
I will instead just become a dedicated ammo sunderer. f-fuck yeah, logistics!
Cant shoot with out amunition soldier!
Ill max that out to make sure its MY ammo they are shooting, and not the level 1 ammo sunderers ammo
im 2shy to ever tell anyone here my name, and would probably drive off a cliff and embarrass myself if i tried to do anything
What's with all the stalkers after this patch? I don't remember anything about cloaker getting touched in this patch.
At least this one fought back.
Combining this with flash nades, I haven't had this much fun playing the game in a long time.
Flash nades are amazing now, see some HA camping in the corner and being a dick? Just lob a nade and waste him. It's great.
The best part is, they have to pick between emp shield or clear vision so you know that the nades will almost always work.
They're truly fun. I can't believe I haven't been hit by one yet, they're good enough to where I thought everyone would be hucking them everywhere now like EMPs.
People say the directive carbines suck, but for close-quarters FAST light assault action, they're great. I like playing LA really quick and close though, so that's probably why.
I'm pretty jealous Mr. Welfhair your dog is a cutie.
Oneshotting people from even greater distances with a direct hit underbarrel grenade launcher is even better.
Oh the hackusations and tears that flow when biolab shitters see my carbine on their death screen as being the thing that oneshot them from 50m.
The new position would be okay if it wasn't actually a base, like that little 1 building hutch between Quartz and Indar Ex.
Leave it as a non-lattice stopping point between Mao and Howling and turn that whole area into a vehicle combat zone.
LA is extremely
funwith the Flash changes.
Dunking on shitters that crutched on HA with my gay little fairy is so juicy, and with the shield nerf, all infantry classes are pretty much viable in HLIP now, barring engineers who shouldn't be anyway.
I think the main problem with the directive weapons is inability to customise.
I think the TRAC-shot is probably a little bit better than the Eclipse because of the higher fire rate and soft point ammo which support carbines role as close range weapons better. Unlimited ammo and never having to reload are powerful benefits though and AD's is still accurate up to about 40m so the Eclipse is quite adaptable. Not really sure what the Fortuna is like.
I wouldn't really say that the directive weapons are bad, it's just that the specialised weapons do their job a bit better. I would have preferred it if you unlocked the Aurax camo as opposed to a weapon because I have little doubt that the main reason people use directive weapons is for the sexy camo/bragging rights.
Mao SE is pretty tough to ground zerg, what with Mao's vehicle spawn sitting up on a ridge that oversees the entire satellite.
If you can keep the shield gen up and camp on that ridge, you can hold out with massive pop disadvantage anyway, so having a stall base that basically serves as a dumping ground for HE from every single direction seems pretty silly.
I dunno, maybe.
I mean most of Indar is already a tanker's wet dream when it comes to farming.
DBG can be pretty retarded in general, but Xander's one of the few sort of competent devs they have left, so who knows what the hell's going on.
Well I like what's he's doing to the whole Hvar/Indar Comm/Indar Ex/Quartz Ridge area so I'm cautiously optimistic for this at least.
It takes one guy to do something good but it also takes one guy to ruin everything so there's that.
I figured since I was flyman I could hug the roof and survive, I've done it before. You're barely outside the kill radius if you detonate a C4 thats on the ground when you do that.
In other news, UBSG declared funnest weapon in the game.
Know what's fucking hilarious to me, as an Emerald NC? Entire 96+ platoons of TR getting carried by 10 or so guys from Recursion. Tonight base after base after base with zergs that size were getting captured with credit going to a squad that size. We couldn't stop them, but every single fight they weren't at? TR got their faces stomped in, hard.
Recursion is a Conner NC outfit, yeah? How does it feel to have your entire primetime faction carried by an NC alt group?
If they are on Connery, cool, I'll admit to being wrong. Either way, the main point is that they still carried the entire TR zerg tonight, which was hilarious. Every time they weren't at a fight, the TR lost.
thats how it goes with anyone
you have the fodder and the pushers who corral the nerds and win because they have enough meat between them and then enemy to where they can do the work
Yes, but as per usual much of the TR that wasn't them was shit talking about it. The same way Emerald VS do when DaPP members hide behind AC.
In my experience it usually isn't that blatant though, and tonight it was REALLY blatant. Like, holy crap blatant, to the point that without those guys around the TR couldn't even get within a hundred meters of a point, much less even think about capping it.
Did they fix the crashing yet?

Conclusive proof that PS2 isn't an MMO.
I already became a full time ledgehog, but not because of flash grenade. No point playing heavy when there are so many cloaker fags around and they can OHK through shield. Shitters finally got what they wanted. Now, have fun drowning in MAX and A2G spam when there is no one around to decimate them.
Flashes open a who new world of just fucking with people. They just either turn into docile little cert nuggets or go full retard shooting everywhere, I love it.
>make a new character
>we have a repair sundie in a very well positioned spot with a huge fight going on around it, a few supporting tanks and swarms of mans rushing out to go kill the enemy vehicles trying to take it out

>hop into the sunderer to try and shoot it with the basilisk because lol im br1
>it was an unclaimed sundie
>its now my pimped out repair sundie in the middle of a massive fight with vehicles and people spawning on it constantly
I got to br10 with that sunderer, killed many tanks, a few esf and assorted fairies trying to take out my sunderer, spawned lots of mans, repaired people
It was pretty neat
A vanguard eventually killed at after that fight and while i was following some tanks around to repair them.
Id advocate leaving sunderers around unlocked all over the place for this reason, but if i was a real newbie i probably would have just drove it off somewhere and wasted it.
That's not how definitions work you fucking idiot.
Is it capable of supporting large numbers of people? Yes, and it does every day.
Does it RELIABLY support large numbers of people? Actually, it does, but your meme spewing ass refuses to give it the credit it deserves because that doesn't gel with your stupid ass meme.
Is this shit still going on? I wanted to give it a day for Thompson, the one and only dev on the PS2 dev team, to come up with a fix but it looks like hes on vacation until monday.
It lets teams pretend they are tactical against massive overpop when in reality, they are just spawning RIGHT ON THE FUCKING POINT and spamming the ever living shit out of everything.
As opposed to sitting in the spawn 300 meters away from the point getting spammed by HEAT rounds? At least that sunderer placement encourages braindead pubbies to actually do something other than sitting in an overpopulated base's spawn room leeching kill assist XP. Besides long tech lab fights are some of the best moments this terrible game has to offer.
I'm sneeki breeki'ing around with just a silenced rebel and my dick has never been harder.
Sniping and SMGs are for fucking queers, this shit is where it's at.
Almost 50% of kills get a reaction, I imagine that's the natural butthurt generated when you get killed by someone bright yellow, wearing glowing yellow armor and using a bright pink gun. A cheeky V1 every now and then helps too.
>force latency limit
>game is 300000000% better
Always run around with a darklight magscatter to get some free dunks
anyone else getting improved performance after this patch?
I don't know what's going on but my framerate is vastly improved, the max isn't any higher but i'm not having nearly so much trouble maintaining it anymore. Much smoother, very nice.
The confusing thing is that the patchnotes don't mention anything about optimisation or such.
That does make sense but I'm a cobalt player who often plays very early in the morning, around 3-4am. You're lucky to find more than 100 people on the server at those times and framerate is certainly better right now than it was normally, even then.
"Bit laggier" is an understatement. My ping to cobalt is usually around 80-90ms. emerald is in the 300ms range. That's unplayable bullshit unless you're actively exploiting it, which I'm not.
>those HA nerfs
>not permanently removing infiltrators and nerfing RL AI damage or LMG accuracy instead
Welp, I guess the ride is finally over. It was fun while it lasted. Guess what class the HA mains are going to play now. Thank God Blade & Soul is coming out in a few days so I can still have a game to waste my life on. Have fun playing Sniperside 2. I'm outta here.
HAs are/were bullshit, but I never whined about them. If HA gets a significant nerf, infil will be the next things the tryhards will main. I'm just waiting to see how much until the infil meta takes over.
Resist shield nerf is barely noticeable. And a good heavy will still out-duel any other class with any shield.
Heavy mains were heavy because it was the meta. And ill be glad to see them go if thats actually what they intend to do now.
It will only affect a very small amount of people anyway. The average clueless i-win-button HA will keep playing HA because that's just the class they're attracted to, what with rocket launchers and big weapons and all that. The K/D-whoring tryhard shitters on the other hand might go infiltrator but for all I care that's just fewer bullets to kill them, even if the playstyle is gay as shit.
>The K/D-whoring tryhard shitters on the other hand might go infiltrator but for all I care that's just fewer bullets to kill them, even if the playstyle is gay as shit.
>this is what people really think
A competent bolt shit is practically immortal. Thank god the average bolter is retarded.
>A competent bolt shit is practically immortal
So is a competent SMG-babby, but in my experience even the worst EMP SMG babbies are less successful on average than medkid cugging HAs with decent positioning. It's all about versatility, infs have their areas of effectiveness defined a lot more clearly than a HA. A decent Godsaw can dominate at pmuch any range, whereas an inf needs to switch between guns to fill the same role.
I feel like I'm actually killing people as on-foot engineer
>they patch ctd
>going into large fights decreases your framerate tenfold instead
cant hear you over the crys of Heavysalts and the whooshing of light assaults.
>mfw 150% of my game time is Turbo Flash
So my outfit uses only in game comms but we need a ts or something any suggestions on programs to use. There was that one free one I forget the name of.
Also, how many Emerald tr have joined recursion? Or have they not recruited?
I think arctorn have made some new ones that looks decent.
Truth be told I'm torn. MBT stuff is 3x the work for less money compared to say a harasser/sundy.
Kinda depends on what sum the next quarterly cheque will be. Cynical..maybe
don't worry about being cynical, that's just practicality.
These shits don't deserve hard work anyway.
Me though, I do. Make flash cosmetics. I need something that goes on the back which isn't a fucking glowing "Shoot me" ball or a babby-flag.
I made one of those racoon tails..or whatever animal it is. you know the fury strpy ones. Never submitted it though. maybe I should.
Also. Made this for funs after talking to Bill a while ago.
>I think arctorn have made some new ones that looks decent.
Unless by "new" you mean so new they aren't released yet, they're ugly.
Unrelated, but how much money do you make out of this? How much work is it? I'm genuinely curious, I was considering doing it myself when they launched playerstudio,
but then decided against it because i am a professional procrastinator and wouldn't get a single hat done.
I think its stuff thats been submitted or on its way to be submitted.
The money I make varies.
My best quarter have been 17 500 dollars.
That was a perfect storm though. Next one I assume will land on 4-7k for a quarter.
It's a lot of work.
Helmets not so much anymore cause i*ve made so many (to the delight of ps2g :P)
A helmet can take anywhere between 20 and 40 hours.
The infantry armors I did, I've easily sunk 400+ hours into that.
>you start to get more nice tells than hate tells
I think I should join a tryhard/milsim guild or something
I guess technically I've been bumming around since February
btw, if you're in san diego, you should buy some of my shit, we can have a beer when you come pick it up!
Yeah, speakers and a big ass TV is def something I'll ship to europe.. ;)
The next time a work project takes me to LA i'm gonna stop by San Diego. took the train down last time, was kinda nice.
So I just realized this was on PS4.
does anyone play the PS4 my computer can't come close to running this decently
So wait, there's really no part of this general on PS4? I mean I'm not going to argue with PC supremacy or anything, but I'd think there'd be something.
I kind of like the clumsy sluggish control-stick battles, makes em last.
Putting a computer together is the simplest thing. It's been over a decade since there was anything you could put in the wrong hole or the wrong way around. You cannot actually fuck it up.
You don't have to know what the part you're holding is called or what it does. If It doesn't plug in to a slot, try another one until it does. Does it have slots on it? Try cables until they fit.
Tada, you made a fucking computer.
Back before certain USB standards came into force you COULD fuck that up but that's been years.
Further back you could get extension boards and risers wrong but again, not for a long time.
If a person tells me they can't put a computer together I can only feel pity for them because it must be terribly difficult going through life without being able to solve pic related.
Seriously building your own rig is a mark of manhood
and for real its adult legos they've made it so much easier than 10-20 years ago there's even websites that will tell you what parts work together and who sells them cheapest in a neat little interactive list
Faven, you've gotta get a fucking grip man. Knock it off with the fucking hoods.
literally have a friend do it for you, or else pay someone like me to do it for you.
Listen, what's your budget? I'll put together a build for you right fucking now if you're in the US.
I've made 2 before I made these.
I just wanted to give people some alternatives. And most of all I wanted to make an alternative for teh VS avalanche hood which I..well I dont like it.
US servers might be different from EU ones but I rarely see hoods on Miller, the ones I see are TR heavy cloth and VS avalanche, that's it.
Budget? I don't make much but I don't spend much, I could blow a thousand pretty easy. I am in the US, are you talking about putting together a list of parts or literally building the PC?
Sadly the one computer wiz friend I had has long moved.
And for what it's worth I sat on those hoods for like 2 months before I decided to submit them....
Stil havent submitted my "edge-lord-emo-I-have-a-wow-rogue-complex" one.
It features everything. Skull. Glowing shit. Hood.
make this hat
I'll buy it if you do
Hot damn, that sounds great. If you're anywhere by Florida, I could even drive. Or is that unnecessary.
So yeah I'd be interested. Not saying I wanna drop $1000, but I will if need be. I'm not well-aware of how much a computer costs.
I am very pleased with it, to me it's the combination of everything that people hate with helmets. Edgy, glow. Hood. Skull.
Are tribals still a thing? Could throw that in there as well ;).
I'm not planning on submitting it. The only thing that could make me submit it is if another playerstudio artist is taking similar cheap shots. Then I'll submit it just to beat them to it.
I'm an ass like that.
Yes. I guess so.
I do some good as well. The empire specific vehicle stuff I did for lightning/lib/flash where pure waste of time vs money it will generate.
But figured some people might like it.
Still to do a single vehcile cosmetic that's cross faction. That shit sells a lot nowdays.
here you go. I can have it built for you and sent in about 2 weeks from now once all the parts come in, or you can just order all these parts and do it yourself.

lol, you do know this game is now highly threaded as a result of the PS4ening, right?
I run the game on an Intel Xeon W3680 clocked at 4ghz, which is a hexacore (12 threads) with about the same amount of IPC per clock as the FX-8350. I use a GTX 760, and my FPS is almost never below 60 unless explosions and other effects bring down my GPU.
I used to be CPU limited constantly, but the PS4 conversion did wonders. I suggested my friend get the FX-8350 and he has been nothing but satisfied with it since, understanding that it can't really handle games like Assassin's Creed : Black Flag, which is mostly single-threaded.
Oh baby. I don't even know what half this stuff is but, I can afford it.
Given I'm already blowing $900, I'll pay you for the building of it since I have no one to help me not fuck up. How's this going to work exactly, with payment and such?
you contact me at adamwykes at gmail DOOOT com, and we figure out where you live, plus I give you my paypal account info, and you send me the cash.
I'm in upper illinois though, so if there are any kind anons closer to you who are willing to build , it would be cheaper to go through them. But as I said, if need be I'll do it for you.

Oh, uh, this anon >>128675978 again here.
I didn't wanna nitpick, but this guy brought it up >>128675514 I would prefer Win7, especially if it's a bit cheaper. 8 is wierd. Any disadvantages to that?
Shipping will be fine then. Though, I was just up there two weeks ago, damn.
help what are the smart people talking about
these CPUs cost more, however, and all we need to do here is get anon a playable experience. If he wants to go Intel, that's certainly a viable strategy, but the strategy I'm offering here is AMD, and it will work fine (and I think you know this). If you want to suggest another build, a better build - then NAME THE SYSTEM PRINCESS LEIA
Also, bro if you are using a GTX 650 and you're not dropping below that FPS in firefights, your graphics settings are shit and that's a fact.
It's more expensive for me to get it for you. IF you want me to pirate windows for you I can do that, but you'll have go deal with any and all issues related to that yourself.
In any and all events, before I send the build over it will be upgraded to Windows 10 no matter the base windows version.
As for the people spouting shit about Intel vs AMD CPUs and the like, welcome to the wonderful world of computer processor faggotry. Everyone, including me, is a shill. You'll just have to decide who to believe yourself. I'm not gonna break a leg to defend one or the other.
>your graphics settings are shit and that's a fact
uh? obviously? you aren't one of these immersion fags that plays at 60 FPS and gets shot in the head by good players with 144 FPS are you?
Anon here, 60 FPS is spiffy already, I couldn't care less about reaching stuff like 120. I'm someone who's used to 30 anyway, though yes I'd definitely like 60 for an FPS and other things.
Oh, buying the OS is fine then.
>welcome to the wonderful world of computer processor faggotry
I guess I figured, I've seen the kind of threads here and there with different abbreviations and numbers fighting for dominance.
>As for the people spouting shit about Intel vs AMD CPUs and the like, welcome to the wonderful world of computer processor faggotry. Everyone, including me, is a shill.
Nothing to shill about. AMD "cores" aren't even real cores. Intel CPU's have 70+% better performance per thread and like 100% better power efficiency. Those are facts.
I wish Intel had a real competition in desktop CPU's but they managed to kill every other company.
I am, but that makes no difference. If we want to give anon a better PC for gayming, then we want to assume he might be one of those people, and not a fucking KDR autismo such as yourself.
>60 FPS is spiffy already,
>wants wallow in shit like a pig
>the king stops by "Why are you wallowing in shit my friend"
>"Shit is good enough for me" says the pig
>the king goes back to his palace
see, that's the thing, though. I don't dispute ANY of those facts. But the one fact you're not considering is that AMD is still better bang for buck, as a result of the multithreading trend in recent AAA titles. For the record, I run an Intel/Nvidia rig at home. I just also happen to not be a complete fucking slave to those companies.
But sure, I'm sure my build is utter shit, right? Couldn't possibly play games well, yes? Awesome. I'm sure you feel great about that.
OK, well just email me whenever you're ready. If you have ideas about changes to the build's design we can talk it over in email. There certainly are arguments for Intel-based designs, and we can discuss those arguments better without shills jumping down our throats while we do it.
you're talking about the AMD bulldozer business? It's semantics.
Their "Compute Cores" are real physical parts of the processor, not virtualised.
Then we've got APUs coming along combining their "CPU+GPU" "Cores" together for a more impressive number and nobody bats an eyelid.
Also, lets not forget that Intel is an israeli company.
I'm the guy who made the AMD build suggestion.
The reason the intel shills say AMD's aren't real cores is because AMD uses what's known as CMT-based core design, wherein each PAIR of AMD cores shares an FPU (Floating Point Unit), which makes them think that the cores are inseparable. This is not the case, as the FPU is not necessary for a core to run, but it does mean that there are many calculations out there for which AMD cannot make full use of its cores.
This is also true, incidentally, for Intel's hyperthreading design, wherein two threads are run on each core of a hyperthreaded processor, sharing pipeline resource availability via some cunning pipeline stacking wizardry.
In the end, though, software developers have been learning to use hyperthreading much better than CMT-based design, so even AMD is going to be moving off CMT to SMT (hyperthreading) in the future with their new Zen architecture.
For all you wanted to know about the "real cores" debate.
This is my PC: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/D6vNK8
I still cannot run ultra and get 60 fps. I can't even get solid 60 fps during big battles (Like biolabs) on medium. I cannot find good settings that let me have a decent quality, and constant 60 fps.
This is the struggle of PS2.
YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND GUISE I MUST PLAY AT A BARE MINIMUM OF 120FPS OR ELSE THE SHITTERS WILL GET ME AGGGGHHHH YOU'RE SO FUCKING STUPID GOD YOU'RE LIKE MY MOM
REFRESH RATE? HOW SHOULD I KNOW, IT SAYS 60HZ WHAT THE FUCK DOES THAT MEAN LOL
If you're running SLI, turn that shit off for PS2, your framerates will go UP.
As for your CPU, it is theoretically possible you might not have enough threads, but I seriously doubt the monstrous haswell cores couldn't make up for that.
What screen(s) are you hooking up to that monster?
>I still cannot run ultra and get 60 fps
You know why? Because of SLI. You will get more FPS from just a single 970.
SLI/CFX is pure fucking shit, and after all those years both companies are still shilling it.
I built a rig with that CPU about 8-9 months back and it instantly started overheating like fuck. I would boot to bios and it would just hit 90+ C and shut itself off in about a minute. couldn't make it work properly so I returned it and got an i5 instead
>everything except price
and that is the bitch, isn't it, anon?
I will say, though, that you might be interested to look up passmark multithreading scores for the FX-8350 and most (all?) of the i5 series. As games get more and more multithreaded, the FX octocore series is going to age surprisingly well.
congrats, you don't fucking understand how to build a PC well.
Meanwhile I'm running a CPU that's 130W at stock speeds, overclocked, in a room with poor ventilation, getting 60C at the highest in the biggest firefights, using just a 120mm AIO from coolermaster.
I'm sorry you weren't made as well as me, anon, but you don't need to spread that FUD.
I'm running a processor that will be six years old soon and my performance is fine. Medium settings and I can hold 60fps even in a biolab.
It's a Phenom II X6 1055t overclocked to 4ghz. 95watt TDP, cooled with a fucking shitty ass H60 and it still never goes over 40c.
Stop the fucking CPU bait war.
yeah just fucking put both monitors on your top GPU and turn off the bottom one for PS2.
thank you. Phenom 6X is pretty hilariously good , of course it's rocking the K10 arch instead of the CMT-based bulldozer, so there's that.
If I'm not mistaken you are running a 140W or a 125W CPU depending on the revision?
hah, do I even need to respond to this?
>doesn't even have all the necessary parts to make a decent comparison
>wants to cram a goddamn 390 into an mATX case with no extra cooling
>doesn't even have enough RAM for when this game shits itself, which is regularly
>has a fucking shit mobo with 2 ram slots
>trading a 2,329 point advantage in multithreaded performance for a 447 point advantage in singlethreading
>with a non-OCable CPU
all of my wow
today ill dedicate most of my time to kill the VS while playing this in prox
if you see me, give me a holla so we can squad up etc
- you know who
and this is how we learn you don't understand what ad hominem is. You want to continue making an ass of yourself, or sit down and continue discussing planetmans like you should have a few minutes ago?
Are you working on the one eye glass thing
This would also be cool
There is unused potential in these designs, you can still cash in on them
The problem is that we dont have access to a transparent shader, so anything you do that "floats" will either be a solid emessive. Which looks ok during night time. Daytime it looks like playdough.
To be honest I don't remember which ones were made by you. 90% of player studio helmets are horrendous anyway, doesn't matter who made them. Edgelord skull hood is what people want to see. We are already way past that limit with meme fedoras and pink camos.
Faven if you could make a gasmask helmet for NC that ISN'T 100% retarded like the havok mask or just a fucking woodwork filter over a balaclava then I will drain your balls every single day for the rest of your life.
I would also buy the helmet.
Ultra settings, almost never dropping below 60fps.
>avatar is a typical asian generic chick
>not even trying
>I managed to trigger her anyways
This is some serious virgin shit. I'll go back playing dragonsdogma, lel
This is some booshit. Again they release a major patch right before weekend, it's full of bugs like always and then they bring the servers down for maintenance during prime time. They never learn from their mistakes. Sure it's 2pm in California but they can't just say fuck you to the rest of the world.
>oh hey how about if I insist throwing this 3 year old meme in you
>which is outdated and nobody gives a shit anymore
>also this indirect "no u" because I'm this much of a faggot
You are joking, right?
>its fucking nothing
>"I won LOL"
>its fucking nothing(again)
>"b-but I won"
>"here's a meme because of that"
>typical "hi guys look at me I'm parroting what I heard on the internet on this guy!Am I a troll, now?"poster-tier
You have no idea how you have beaten the crap outta me right now. I'm crying IRL.
Yeah, you are joking.
Or just retarded.
I've been using the internet for so many time I just don't give a fuck anymore. And reading those two guys (trying to) "troll" me is cringeworthy.
Like a "generic troll attempt" to reply to this would be in the lines of
"Because he is so retarded he can't even feel anymore LOL".
>more meme arrow abuse
Don't ever try arguing with me, cause you will end up playing MY game. I've been using the internet since 1954, and I'm the best troll on the internet xD
so actual good patch happened? Looks good on paper but I didn't play seriously in 1,5 year so it's hard for me to judge.
>hi!I will d-definitely troll you now!
Heh. Okay, anon. One more. If you fail to do any significant mental damage on me... I will just go play DragonsDogma. Because I'm about to fall asleep here.
>"l-look at him, guys!He is so mad he is posting his feels!"
>parroting for the 4th time
*sigh*. You have no idea how I am mad right now. Wooow.
You can't be this retarded.
So...is that all you guys got?Memes and shit?C'mon, try something that does not go beyond the lines of assposting or repeating a meme over and over again.
Apparently just maintenance
As far as i know DBG hasn't announced what the patch actually does or why they pulled the servers down.
For those who had any hope on reddit
Here's something to laugh at.
All right, I'm done messing up w/ the general. Back to some sweet casual (and comfy) Dragon's Dogma.
>All right, I'm done messing up w/ the general. Back to some sweet casual (and comfy) Dragon's Dogma.
Can you pls link us your twitter so we can follow you and always know what you are up to?
>implying I've been able to play long enough to even shoot mans
Someone on Reddit already got it by spamming bounties on everyone he saw for bonus XP, which is hilarious and sad.
You know what, I normally do a steam giveaway at christmas on /v/, usually do one for my world of tanks clan too but I didn't this year.
What if I buy a load of smedbux and just blow it all on random bounties?
That way, the person I bounty and whoever kills him will get a little bonus, no?
more staff members are being transferred to h1z1 that they haven't announced yet. seems like feature support is ending after the harvesting addition. they'll keep the servers running for a few years at the very least.
I just leaned forward, placed my arm on the desk and had a good old belly chuckle while saying "Haha, Serbian Spurdo. Remove Kebab".
My big fat stomach swaying too and fro as I undulate.
The dog looks confused.
If you're serious about removing pilto then the only server for you is Cobalt.
They are, without doubt, the most profession pilto removers around. No other server can even begin to match up to the effort and ferocity with which they will hunt, find and ultimately remove piltos.
If you think you know things about pilto removal you know nothing. If you remove pilto as a hobby you are nothing.
Nobody removes pilto like these hard-asses.
They have trained for years in secret locations, drilling again and again and again in their strange language, pure INTENSE focus of only removing pilto.
If you are a pilto, avoid cobalt. Do not go to cobalt, they will remove you.
They had all fucking week to screw up their game but no, no they wait until closing on friday, everyone leaves and the last man, before locking the door, presses the big "Just fuck my serb up senpai" button and leaves for the weekend.
Fuck you Gamebreak Games. Fuck. You.
I PAID MONEY, WHERE IS GAME.
>Companies who take a shit on their customers like that won't live long.
>In April 1998, Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) was formed by merging parts of Sony Online Ventures with Sony Pictures Entertainment.
For some reason they keep alternating between the Auth Server going down and the Game Servers going down.
Hopefully that's a sign someone is actually working on it and attempting to bring them back up, as opposed to them just being stuck in a fucking loop.
At this rate I will actually give money to derek smart for his promised planetside-like which is going to feature seamless planetary and space combat.
Can't wait to boost down from the atmosphere, dunk a ground-shitter in my derek smart version of the mossie and boost back into space.
>all these troughs where the servers crashed
JUST ROLL BACK THE PREVIOUS UPDATE YOU FUCKING WHORES.
YOU DO KEEP BACKUPS RIGHT? YOU ARE A PROFESSIONAL COMPANY WHO KNOW WHAT THEY'RE DOING, RIGHT?
AND FUCK YOU STREET-SIGN CAPTCHA FUCK OFF FUCK YOU VANU FUCKS
That's it, feggits. I'm going to bed. Can't even fap because... medical reasons.
You people don't realize that SOE/DGB is finished. This is the last stage before their overlords put them in "let's milk whatever is left and close it" mode like they did with other companies they acquired.

Well i m-mean t-thank god DBG is excellent at communicating to their playerbase right? I sure am kept well aware of what the problem is and how long i expect to wait until i can play again.
DBG hates us more than we hate them.
They hate us from the very bottom level mailboy to the very top-tier twat.
None of them even know what a video games is, they think its some sort of electronic book with buttons on the side that makes farmyard noises.
They hate us, they hate video games, they love only money.
Fixing the problem right now will cost money, thus it is not fixed. Simple.
>soon Russkies will announce PS2's shutdown and Daybreak's demise
>one month notice until the end of the world
we were right to panic and gather at Armistice Beach- we were just one year early to the day
You really think someone would do that, just go on the internet and tell lies?
