I want to pack it up with Tachanka!
First for IQ is the most useless at this time, needs buffs but Ubi will never fix her.
She is possibly not even #1 waifu after the new female ones.
I'll preface my remarks by saying I love this game and still have loads of fun with it every time I play, especially with my TS comrades.
I think your sentiment is a reflection on how little content is in the game. In other words, what is there to even discuss, especially among experienced players? Look at the general for CSGO (another game without much content), it is 90%+ a discussion on the esport aspect of the game (something r6 currently lacks).
Not saying the lack of content of even a bad thing, just is what it is.
MP5 imo for these reasons:
- Better at range
- more controllable recoil
- ACOG, ACOG, ACOG
I'd only choose the p90 if it is a close quarters map AND you have chosen to commit your playstyle to that.
>iq tells me to blow this wall
>i tell them wall has bandit battery on it
>i try to lob a nade under the door to destroy them
> shot in the back by a roamer
>iq calls me a noob team kills everyone and quits next round
I'll never go back to the P90 because of one round where I lit the fuck out of three people's legs that were standing around a roof hatch. There was blood everywhere but not one of them was killed or even injured. The damage is just too low if you're in a situation where you can't see the enemy's head.
I'd be happier with them if the head hitboxes weren't fucking enormous on some characters.
Blitz's noggin is huge because of his helmet and the headphones that are apparently part of his head.
>Thank you for contacting Ubisoft Support. We are aware that players are experiencing an issue where the Safari Pack is available for download under the related items menu of the game, but the skins themselves are not appearing in game. Our teams are currently working with Sony to resolve this issue. Thank you for your continued patience while the teams get this issue resolved. Have a great day and I hope you are enjoying the game otherwise.
>This guy is shit literally got DICE to balance BF4 for TDM
Hes the guy who made a video about how FLIR smoke ruins TDM and BF while you see in that headshot video he calls 1 shot headshots on all guns unrealistic
While fucking FLIR was designed to see though smoke
Well, no shit, it's a fucking high yiel plastic explosive. I'm ashamed I ever watched the shit he put out.
I gotta start playing more Conquest games in BF4. Hell, the only reason I ever play TDM is to try and fail leveling up my guns.
What changes would you introduce to the game to make it better?
>better grenades like in Squad
>shooting people in legs/arms would always injure them and not kill them; and to kill a downed enemy you will have to shoot them in the chest or head
>knifing isn't instant (make it something like in Battlefield when you rip your foe's dogtags off and knife them) hitting people with a shield is instant but never kills and injures instead, hitting them again will kill them
>shield's bulletproof glass visor breks after enough damage is done
>(make it something like in Battlefield when you rip your foe's dogtags off and knife them)
here's a thought - what if her device highlighted gadgets through walls ala L4D/CS for herself and team-mates, but only when the device is focused on it. Additionally, make Kapkan more useful by making his lasers invisible, and removing the hook opposite of the plant, it only gets oblivious idiots that haven't a clue what they're doing, or in a panic to get to the objective.
I've always thought that some way to automatically and visually share the intel you learn via IQs gadget was needed. I know I know, muh microphone callouts, but that doesn't cover the visual aspect.
Deserves a play test/10
this. Blitz needs a more sensible headbox, or anyone with a large helmet.
>shooting people in legs/arms would always injure them and not kill them; and to kill a downed enemy you will have to shoot them in the chest or head
also this. limb damage should only down not kill, its' not like you'll end up nailing their head on the way down anyways.
I guess that works, although to any competent team the hook is a dead giveaway, in all honesty I'd rather a thinner laser and no hook, keeps people guessing at every opening.
another thing I was considering is a step-mine that's about 50cm^2, resistant to explosives and can be covered by rubble, for example a broken barricade. Haven't thought of balancing, just an alternative device.
I legitimately play this game too much to usually post here since I'm on console.
Has anyone tried a strategy where one defender on a map with a lot of outside cover basically books it and draws all the attackers? It might be useful to get some needed time in or as a way for people to start breaking down windows and shooting attackers in the back.
As someone who has recently gotten good with Thcanka, the trick is that you need to have zero line of sight to your enemy. Lock yourself in a room full of breakable walls, and use sound cues and team callouts to shoot through where your bullets are needed. The MG is ONLY worth using if you can take advantage of both of its advantages: massive through-wall damage and a huge magazine (letting you tear through a wall and continue shooting for several seconds afterward).
I've wanted to try that for a long time but I'm afraid that it won't pay off and I get gunned down or my teammates won't listen/call me a retard since I don't play with friends.
Seems like it would work to be bait if the opposing team are easily distracted.
The man robbed of his radical status
Rook + Mute and/or Bandit is the most solid defense.
So hol up... you ain't putin Castle in there? I mean I need my boy Castle to make my main nigga Mute look glories.
I'll agree with sledge but I think the fifth is map dependent.
I had a few rounds with a crouch Blitz and mountain Montagne spaced out two meters with Thermite and Thatcher behind the mountain on Kanal and just wrecking shop.
God, I hate his impact on FPS games so much. I literally only watch his videos to keep up with what scrubs think the meta is in the games I play. The worst part is that he doesn't even realize that reducing headshot damage will do literally nothing to percieved spray and pray time to kill. S&P means you'll get a bodyshot here or there, and one hit to the body followed by one hit to the head is just as fast as normal play. The only thing nerfing headshots will do is to reduce the TTK for skilled players who know how to preaim. This game is about the four Ps: Preparation, Positioning, Prediction, and Patience. High ROF, low recoil guns would become EVEN MORE meta than LC claims they are. What a fucking hack. He should make his own shitty, homogenized FPS game for him to masturbate all over.
Someone at Ubisoft really fucked up. I recognize some of those tattoos and there are a couple that are Polynesian warrior markings that are only put on men.
They're literally insulting a culture.
>big ass office room
>sneak in as Sledge while enemies too busy trying to shoot my team through the windows
>they dont see me though
>notice tachankas LMG

i dont think i ever felt this good!
Then shes Chinese you goof.
What about the shotgun? Stick the grip and laser on it.
This game keeps fucking crashing when I join a server right now and I have no idea why but anyways
I feel this game is really awesome and tactical, but I feel really bad for the game developer who had to fight against the ubisoft marketers and other higher up faggots to get this game to be good. Ubisoft is one of the most least risk taking companies in the business and to see this game come out with free maps is kind of surreal (of course they want to chase after the CS:GO hype)
But regardless, it's fun game with some weird server issues, and I bet you a lot of meetings between game designers and marketers were outright battles to get this game into a playable state that it is.
Casual market is dying and Ubi is just riding that train.
Assassins creed isn't getting it's yearly release right now because higher ups saw how well Witcher was doing and they're basically going to start stealing off that formula now.
Not that I'm complaining, siege is a solid game.
>Civvie gun developed by SIG Sauer USA three years ago to stick it to the ATF
>Used by Tier 1 US special forces operators
Should have used a Cold Mod 635 or 633. Those at least have documented use with the ATF.
Are we still even sure the US SOG defender is a girl? Could very well be just a pretty man with arms like that.
Fuck man you nailed it.
Why does everything need to be made out of hyper-calculated formulas for games?
Counter-strike, the game they're chasing, was done with a bunch of dudes who loved the original rainbow six and just made a mod emulating it using the goldsrc engine.
And mobas were a byproduct of regular dudes making custom maps for warcraft 3.
I hope more game companies just start making fun shit, and not continue to create calculated psychological exploiting programs to extract as much money as they can out of human beings.
It's confirmed she's an American defender
You can't teach the suits to make things with soul, my mang
It'll be up to rogue dev teams to pave the way to the future, to experiment. At least I hope the suits get that through their skulls and take a few more risks
Nope, definitely American. I'm hoping BOPE will have the MT-9
Actually, an anon mentioned Cultural Support Teams and Female Engagement teams several threads back and I did a bit of looking into it. It's 100% possible that a woman could be sourced from one of those teams for something like TF88 under a specialized role. Would also make sense for such a woman to be a defender since that was basically their job in Afghanistan, to protect the women during operations.
So yeah, I'd have to concede it's entirely possible for there to be a female in an American Tier 1 SOG team. The real question is whether or not the character is actually female. It could totally be a male operator that just so happens to have Hollywood prettyboy looks.
That's a bit of a stretch to be honest. Neither team are considered Tier 1. Beardo isn't outfitted like a Marine either.
However they are both dressed like Afghan ops. They aren't Navy or Army though.
fuck off with this reddit shit
I went to the fucking thread after the frost,buck leak and they fucking straight up credited 4chan it's even the fucking last post on the thread atm and one of the 1st questions were
>were did this leak come from (images)
in which a redditor promptly said 4chan
you fucks are fucking stupid and the whole reddit being worse than 4chan meme needs to end, they don't spend time shitposting 4chan and actually fucking stay on topic in their R6s subreddit, ffs there's a fucking new stickied post banning fucking meme shit
come back to /vg/ and it's full of assholes and waifu fags
seriously fuck off with that reddit shit
Well, the DoD doesn't exactly provide name lists of T1 operators. Sourcing from CST and FE teams are within the realm of possibility. Has it happened? Probably not, but the key word here is "possible" not "probable".
TF88 is T1 and sourced from pretty much every US SOF group, Marines, Army, and Navy. If the new CTU is TF88, you have a bit of room for interpretation because no one knows what the fuck those guys get up to.
Low-class bait, bro.
It has to be TF88 right? DEVGRU can't operate inside US border due to the clause blocking all military units from operating inside the US. Only National Guard can land on the ground.
One shot headshots are perfect for this game. It's one thing that makes people use caution and not just charge in.
It's fucking laughable how he talks about how it removes skill from the game
Not even TF88 because they're under the Department of Defense and qualify as a military unit. No matter who they choose, it'll all be the same. Even the Nat. Guard can only deploy at the behest of the governor, and specific counter-terror operations would be better suited to FBI SWAT if local SWAT wasn't enough.
Yeah, even as an American that wants to see more Americans kicking ass and blowing down doors, it would be more interesting for say, Italian GIS or ROS for some Mafia-related map or Polish GROM if they really wanted to do some middle eastern location. I suppose what's left is that you COULD make the argument that a US military CTU would have the ability to operate internationally. The FBI just doesn't have the legal jurisdiction to operate outside of the US in say, a siege of a US consulate on foreign soil.
Give me games shitlords. I made those wallpapers, remember?
We honestly have no idea, unless someone posts a screen with the new CTU name. TF88 just has the most artistic license that can be taken, so we're just assuming that if Hollywood is a grill.
noone asked you to make them. You share them here. If you want shit for putting a filter on some pictures please sell said filtered pictures somewhere, but dont shill around on an image board for papua new guinearian tortoise breeders.
because it's totally fine to have people getting practically instagibbed from getting their toes shot off at a doorway, chances are they'll end up dying anyways from dropping down, but it at least gives people a fighting chance of getting away from poor shooting (not approximating vital hitboxes).

I don't see how it contributes to much clutter, IQ looks at a single device at a time, and it merely highlights it, no arrows or anything if a player doesn't happen to look at it - allows for the team to get a feel for where potential dangers are, and potentially remove some.
sorry tsfags, I wont be able to play until I upgrade now that ive been spoiled, i might stop in every now and then however
>reddit defense for force anon gets triggered for literally no reason
I don't think shotguns get a headshot bonus.
Almost. Dozer is the best fanfic. So useful.
too many, more often than not I opt out for any automatic save for defenders on small maps. Ubi uses the same retarded model of shotgun shooting most shooters use - which is to say absolutely useless past 20 feet. Valve got shotguns right, at least to the best extent I've seen. Additionally hipfire spread is too wide, aiming with sights on a shotgun is just silly in an FPS, I'd like for lasers to allow for cs levels of hipfire, considering how obvious it makes your location.
yeah, I accidently fuzed the hostage ONCE and ever since I never pick him on hostage mode
So how useless is Buck going to be? Frost seems like a better Capcom.
Only butthurt anon I see is >>129275314 >>129285970
maybe >>129275048, but that seems like bait.
Is there a reason I'm just not having fun with this game?
I enjoy most shooters, but 90% of matches, even if we are winning, I am not really enjoying it or having fun. It just feels like I'm playing to waste time.
When everything is groving, and that 10% of the time I am having fun it's fucking amazing, win or lose, victory or frustrating shot-in-the-foot-really-should-have-been-an-exploit-to-prone-and-punch-a-hole-in-a-wall
Is anyone else experiencing this as well?
It's one guy who lets lose his autism. RDF anon can strike at any given time reddit is "insulted"
Don't worry, he'll never take the blame and will only continue to shitpost.
>i don't enjoy this game
1. Do you have any friends to play with?
2. Do you play this like CoD or Battlefield?
3. Are you a shitter?
The game is fun and very well balanced. Game does lack content but at the same time it's a great "play some for a while play another game later". Great with friends. My team is 3 is 27/0
>Shitposter derails the thread to cry about reddit/some poster from weeks ago
>Told to fuck off
>STOP SHITPOSTING FUCKING REDDIT DEFENSE FORCE REE
Do you have some sort of mental disorder? Seriously how are you still this fucking upset over that?
Meant for >>129286937
The beginning and end of it is you or whoever that was is shitposting. If you're still this triggered over some fuck from weeks ago that's your problem, don't make it the thread's.
It's laughable because I literally haven't posted here since the 12th. But keep sperging out.
FPS are fun. I've recently took a break and started playing CoH 2. Sad there's no general for games like that anymore.
1) I do
I thought I'd have the same fun I do when playing something like Insurgency or Red Orchestra, and really I just am not. Just the routine of the matches set in very fast
>oh heres the drone phase
>oh look the defenders are walling off walls at one of the 3-4 rooms it can be in on this map
>oh and castle is here blocking off doors
>looks like we'll have to go and breach with thermite and have someone else blow up another door
>make sure you shoot the signal disrupter under the door
>okay we're going in
>wish us luck
Every match feels the same, really.
>Keeps trying to bait people into arguing with him about petty bullshit that happened weeks ago
>Not trying to derail the thread
>U MAD BRO
>NO I'M RIGHT AND IF YOU DISAGREE YOU'RE REDDIT SEE I'M ALSO TALKING ABOUT THE GAME SO I'M NOT TRYING TO DERAIL THE THREAD
You know exactly what you're doing; you're just shitposting and are going to to just label anybody who disagrees with you as "RDF".
I ask you again; how upset are you that you're still this triggered?
Siege is a good mix between a typical arcade shooter and a realistic shooter. It's a pretty good tactical FPS.
>every game feels the same
The game should feel the same at the start, but what happens in between then and the end should feel dynamic
I honestly have no clue what you're talking about guy. All I know is you're blistering mad and you only have yourself to blame.
People, I need to get something off of my chest for a second.
It's super disturbing how many morbid and creative ways there are to kill IQ. The way gamers are rewarded for murdering a female in a position of authority is just plain gross. Violence against women is NOT a game, and I think it's not too far of a stretch to say that the way players enthusiastically abuse this feminine avatar is telling of more deeper societal implications.
Just a thought.
Well I find the blatant gender inequality disturbing. Why did the developers make the teams mostly men. Especially on the stacker? Why must they enforce that men = agression? Why did they want more men to die? Havnt we as a society progressed beyond that yet? Why are the only ethnicities represented white and African American? What about lgbt?
1 armour 3 speed
Deploys a shockwave taser device, pic related, that can be activated remotely like Smokes gas. 2 devices.
5 meter effective range, if struck attackers are immediately downed. Fucked if I know about weapons.
With all these ctu forces I'm shocked this isn't in the game all ready.
So apparently there's a spot on the SAS killhouse 2nd floor, where if you put a deployable shield down right in the doorway, people can't vault over it. Found that out the hard way when a defender won by sitting back and I couldn't get in within the last few seconds.
Killing everyone in the last second of a round doesn't win you the round either. Was playing an FBI shield and downed a guy, only had like 3 bullets left with 5 seconds on the timer. Last guy bolted to run away and I shot him on the last second. Even though he died, and the last guy died because he was DBNO, we still lost the round, even though the entire enemy team was dead.
I find the game fun but some of the bugs and bullshit I keep running into really upsets me. At least getting outside during the setup phase was fixed but still.
>saw literally nothing
>no movement whatsoever
>watch the killcam
>person was crawling on the floor
How exactly does the camera work for both players? I'm sensing some issues here. If they can see me, I should be able to see them. CSGO has this problem too, it's preposterous.
>If they can see me, I should be able to see them
This isn't neccesarily true. For example, imagine you are standing next to a table, and there is someone hiding under the table. You can't see them, but they can see your legs, maybe even most of your torso, without being seen themselves.
>half the defending team is peaking through windows and darting in and out of the building from rooftops for kills before they are detected
>can't even enter the building because of this
Something needs to be done about this bullshit.
At the very least there needs to be an immediate detection for enemies outside

That is a glitch. You put down a castle barricade, rip it off and out a shield in the door way and the thickness of the old barricade makes so you can't vault over, this is only countered with ash of a grenade until it is fixed
Do you ever see anything that just makes you consider quitting your team because of how bad they are?

fuck this fucking weapon restriction, just make it so attackers only have assault rifles and defenders only have sub machine guns and shotguns on fucking everyone
I don't understand the balancing logic behind the Aug, p90, or any gun you can't slap a vertical grip on. They all have features that act like a vertical grip, but because you can't unlock an aftermarket part, you're stuck with the shit recoil of not purchasing a vertical grip.
I don't use the Acog for range. The CQC uses of 1x reticles is useful if you're running around a lot shooting people standing up, but if you're slicing the pie, you need the acog to filter out the details without your reticle blocking out everything. At like 10 meters, the reticle of 1x sights will literally cover the entire head. Also it'll drastically increase the amount of headshots you get. For close range, just snap on to someone, and zoom in while firing. Never had an issue with it. In fact I seem to do better CQC with the acog.
Looks like an American flag to me.
Camera is in the chest.
I have an imgur link in my bookmarks somewhere, but it's really noticeable on stairs.
Someone at the top of stairs will have a view on your head and upper torso before you can even see the top of their helmet
I personally prefer if they remove the hook.
There's only a couple of entrance ways that you can cheese because the hooks don't show up. Makes it pretty much pointless on entrypoints on the perimeter and you have to hope they get involved in such a clusterfuck they don't notice it.
On the other hand no lasers would make the device useful deployed backwards on the "outside" rather than the inside since it would blow up people trying to take down the barricades rather then people who have already probably blown the barricades up with the device.
Only time i've had kapkan traps work on me are when the hooks aren't noticeable and a piece of the barricade plank falls ontop of the laser as i take it down. They don't even work very well as a detection device because you can just destroy them through the planking with a silenced weapon without drawing much attention.
>playing shit entire game
>it's a 3v5
>start roaming around as rook
>using muh sound get 5 pick offs in a row
when this game is good it's fucking great that was intense as shit
What's the point of a shotgun attachment when you have to TOGGLE it? It would get you killed in the middle of a firefight and if you were expecting close range, you can just bring a fucking shotgun with operators like Thermite.
>That one guy who never revives you in a 2v2 or 2v1 scenario because he wants to get the kill for himself and ends up losing the round
>That one guy who never plants the bomb even when BOTH bomb sites are secure because he wants to pad his KDA
Makes me froth at the mouth.
you can't make this shit up. Ubicock confirmed nazis
We should just castrate all men and engineer females to be able to exchange reproductive DNA more efficiently rather than using an horribly inefficient proxy incubator like men to create an all female breed much like lizards of the desert. That would remove all anger and frustration issues and altogether prevent violence.
>An anon Mentioned
And two, Autistic Military Enthusiast anon here, I came up with the nick name for 'Murican Operator Chick and the whole relevance she had with the 2nd US CTU, also fun fact the letter and number on Ramses the gun-shielder in >>129310834 are callsigns usually seen on Seals and Army SOF units such as Green Berets and Delta, so those are the highest possibilities so rule out Marine CTU faggots.
That woman is not involved in direct action counter terrorism activities. She does COIN shit involving talking to locals. She carries a gun because it's possible she might be attacked. She was never in combat.
If you're an "autistic military enthusiast," you should know she's a terrible example for why female operators should be in this game.
And now for more concentrated autism! The point behind the head scarf for her and other women was due to relations in Afghanistan such as this article
The Tattoo Sleeves is of course based on common US operators getting them, the style of hers though is not rather seen as said in >>129268249 let me say they really don't give a fuck what style they choose since it's not the focal point in their life as long as it's not offensive.
