The navy planes are pretty terrible compared to the USAF, you lose out on your only good ASFs and bombers by specializing into marine.

>>120971015
mainly the engine, I don't mind the graphics but every little thing about it is just slightly off or broken, from the map taking 3 seconds to open, to the ridiculous deviation system (and yes I understand why they had to do it)

playing insurgency just really highlights how terrible the gunplay is in PR, compared to what it could be


not only that but often you can just get into a bad squad that either disintegrates under poor leadership, or gets wiped and never really comes back into the game, or just spends the entire round marching round the map never actually doing anything

when things go right its really good, an amazing unique experience
but its overshadowed by the issues to me

Yeah the gunplay is about as fine as it can get on the engine really.

Bad squads are also a problem, I find that I can lose a round but have fun with a good squad almost every time. Don't often do the latter just travelling the map though.

I honestly wish that I could get some sort of excitement for Squad but I don't think it will be successful, not to mention the 200 player server tests were easily the best experiences i've ever had in PR.

These are some good points you make.

I love milsim games and have been playing Insurgency for months now. Just recently found Project Reality and began playing.

The little bugs and things in the engine don't bother me too much because the real payoff is the scope and features of the game itself.

Whats the deviation system you mentioned? I haven't had a chance to dig deep into the broader features yet, still learning my way around infantry roles and squad stuff.

The leadership thing is also true, and the game shines when you have a good group, but this can also swing the other way and you have control-freak basement officers who scream at people and act like they're in Delta Force. That annoys the shit out of me as I'm an Army vet and don't like listening to some whiny shit tell me how to do CQB or move in formation.

I am surprised you have ever hit anything with your rifle then.
Because it is impossible to implement scope sway into BF2 engine what they did was implement invisible scope sway

basically after you move, or change from standing to prone, or sprint, or jump your gun is really inaccurate and slowly gains accuracy over a few seconds, same thing after every shot

they are adding a HUD indicator in the new update today I think
>>
>>120972005
Yeah I'm not holding my breath for Squad to succeed either.

I'm certainly hoping it succeeds, though. I think Unreal engine was a good choice.

Part of what I love about a lot of milsim games, mods, etc.. is that they prioritize the features and realism of the game instead of graphics.

As an older gamer, I'm very willing to put up with less than cutting-edge graphics for a richer gameplay and feature experience. Not very many big companies will go this route, though, and I think a lot of modern games suffer for it.
>>
>>120972332
Deviation is a feature that makes you inaccurate as fuck for 2-3 seconds after going from walk/run to standing still.
>>
>>120972773
Ah okay.

Well I've noticed that the round deviation was crazy but I just thought it was a high cone of fire, desu.

I felt it was getting more accurate after a few seconds of sighting-in. Glad I'm not going insane yet lol.

Mostly why I dropped it. My group always pigeon holed me into squad lead because they were too lazy, but it never matters. Pubs, friends, no one ever fucking listens and just picks whatever kit they want before lone-wolfing and then crying for a medic while being 100m away.

I just got tired of the trash community after awhile. The teamwork is non-existant in a game that can only function with teamwork in the first place. The game is essentially unplayable 90% of the time. It gets worse whenever a patch comes out and brings in a bunch of new/returning people too.
>>

Yeah man I haven' been playing long, but once I started joining pvp servers I noticed that almost every squad had a leader that was vocal and the majority of players listened.

You may have just had some bad experiences. The community is small enough that I think most people are willing to play along and cooperate because it's really a part of what makes the game awesome.

It's true. The mission the server is running has to specify every custom skin that they want to use, and then they'll have to tell people in the mission description to go to download the skins separately.
>>
>>120975267
What server do you play on. Maybe German players are just really obedient or something, because on American ones people don't listen for shit, and their only desired interaction with the squad is pissing and moaning about rally point drops in situations where you very obviously cannot place once, or begging for a medic because they ran off and did something stupid. The community in PR is a complete joke. They are MOBA-tier.

Denmark and Norway are the 2 most viable 40% minors. DLC 3 did wonders by giving them 2000's equipment to fill all their old deck holes.

I'd say Denmark/Norway National is more viable than say, the Czech or Japan.

Japan really should be a 40% country, their deck is so lacking in so many ways. All they do in BD is provide the koreans a couple gap-filler units. The vast majority of a BD deck is Korean.

Then blue dragons can be bumped up to 25% bonus avail.

Only thing Czechs are missing is a respectable fighter. Norway is totally defenseless against helicopters.

Both also have dogshit for tanks (Leop 1s are nice but you'll never break through a heavily defended line with them) and helicopters.

Nasams destroy helicopters that get in range, wheeled means it can keep up with the armor. You get 6 of the things in Norway national.

Czech are missing SEAD, Tanks other than Dyna and Moderna are overpriced. Infantry tab has to rely on Grantomets against infantry. Infantry tab has no high-power launchers other than 7VR. Czech have better coverage than Norway/Denmark, but the Scandinavian units are better as a whole.

On the other hand, I took a look at Japan national and holy shit they are missing so much. Literally the worst air tab in the game.

Eugen you dun fucked up when the JASDF is worse than the Nork air force. But then again, considering how the JASDF is basically USAF-lite, I'm not surprised.

Even if you live in some shithole like the balkans you should have a means to get it. I mean, if you can get your hands on a Logitech you should be able to get your hands on a Thrustmaster too.

You're supposed to do that kind of thing in person. Ask the person you're buying it from if you can try it on his PC. And bring a friend.

If you live in a shithole chances are that appropriation and reselling of electronics happens rather often. Ask your IRL friends and their friends' friends. Check the local flea markets too.

CH HOTAS owner here.

Build quality is retardedly amazing. This shit won't break ever and it's easy as fuck to open it up to do maintenance if you need to. Just be sure to get the whole HOTAS set and not just the stick, as it doesn't have twist and the little throttle rotary wouldn't be as good as the throttle unit to use.

It may be old as shit but it's a proven, solid HOTAS system. Unlike the X-52 anyway.

If you got any questions, ask them, I'll be here for a few minutes.

What is the best server to play on.
Are most of the servers on 1.5 now?

>>121007259
I could manage the stick + throttle but getting the pedals would be stretching it too thin. I usually play the WW2 birds so rudder is pretty important. Does the CH pro throttle have anything to help with that?
>>
>>121008220
I heard tales of someone using the microstick as a rudder, but nothing besides that.
>>
>>121008124
Join the /fsg/ group on steam if possible.

When we assemble to play, we generally have someone host a mission or something of the sorts for the time being and someone posts on the thread. Just come into the TS from time to time to check for ops.

1.5 has quite a bit servers running already. At least I'd say it's comparable to 1.2.8

The fact the pedals are so close doesn't bother you at all? Moreover it seems that you have to put your whole feet on them in order to operate them, rather than just pushing them with your feet's tips. Which as far as I know is how WW2 aircraft pedals were used.

but still, 25km/h, 5hp, no armour, plus it feels it always misses whenever I use it, even hardened.

But denmark has no anti helo IR AA. Otomatic does the job until SEAD comes in.

Don't get me wrong, I love playing Denmark but still, Strops and OSA-AKs for me have been more effective when I've used it than EOTS or any hawk for that matter.

It's slow and easy, doesn't really have any depth outside of the deck building, so it's really simple to pick up for new people if you have any sort of mind for RTS games at all. Also, appearance wise it's not bad at all, though all the fancy attention to appearances is largely wasted by being zoomed out so far that you only see boxes. Also, nationalism.

It's accessible. I don't play other RTS games and I appreciate how Wargame doesn't demand Starcraft 2 levels of APM or micro. It doesn't have basebuilding either. All of this gives it an "easy to play, difficult to master" kind of vibe.

The recon/sead/aa/tanks/atgm/arty/infantry etc. dynamic works REALLY well.

It's sorta realistic, there's a lot of bullshit (maybe even too much depending on you) but isn't nowhere near as bad as something like World in Conflict. It's close enough for me and it's lovely seeing all the nicely modeled units fighting it out, it's pretty. Also nationalism.

>>
>>121021565
and the truth is, while I have seen other games do various things better than Wargame I feel like nobody else actually *does* Wargame better. Like there isn't a "better" version of Wargame and if you go in the direction or more gamey or more realism you end up with different kinds of games.

None of those are related to the actual gameplay, which is what I disagree the most with. WiC was just rock/paper/scissors all the way. I don't care if the server has clan support if it's not fun to play.

There are two things that rustle my shit more than anything else in the gaming industry.

The first is everything revolving around Lab Zero's current situation and how a decent dev just kinda got completely shit on.

The second is Ubisoft's total raping of Sierra and Massive, and adding gratuitous insult to injury by purposefully stunting WiC's potential to kill it off, and sticking Massive on shitty CoD-clone FPS games when they are traditionally an RTS developer. Massive and Sierra were a potent as fuck combo, and I really, really fucking hate the modern consumer base of the gaming industry because of what's ultimately happened to the two companies.

Remember, The Hunt for Red October was extremely well received only two years earlier. Published by the U.S. Naval Institute Press, renowned for its accuracy, praised by Ronald Reagan himself.

RSR isn't bad, but the only good parts were probably Larry Bond's doing.

Try reading Ralph Peters' Red Army which is like RSR from the opposite perspective. NATO is incredibly incompetent, falls for every single ruse, no one has critical thinking skills etc.

Stick with the middle ground "war is hell" novels like Chieftains if you want less jingoist WW3 stuff.

I see a lot of /wgg/ posters today so I will see what you guys think.

>/wgg/ Wargame: Red Dragon Nations Only Tournament
>3v3 conquest
>1 use of a nation per a team
>fast and brutal qualifiers and standard best of three for the actual tournament

I will have a steam group up by late November and start the tournament in early December. Nations only (with no 3x USSR) should lead to some interesting team set ups and strategies. I have a couple teams already interested from the steam group and some more from the forums, but I want to see if any thread buddies were interested in forming their own teams. Since there won't be any coalitions the meta will be quite a bit different and hopefully friendly to players of any skill level.
>>
>>121032145
Would be blufest because their nations are more competitive solo, even if you did ban USA, but it sounds interesting.
>>
Should I disable MSAA and Anisotropic Filtering for performance gain? I'd rather run DCS at 1440p (currently at 1080p).
>>
>>121032354
USSR, China and CZ make a pretty solid team but I definitely see what you mean. No restrictions on what side you play so I suppose it will be up to the teams to figure out an optimal strat. I am still working out the kinks though so if we need to add some blue restrictions that is fine.
>>
>>121032472
oh, I thought you meant you're banning USSR, but you were just referring to the rule where the nations have to unique. Nevermind then.
>>
>>121032972
Yep. I just don't want 3x USSR vs blue. I think USSR should balance out the weakness of any of the other red nations
>>
why do you guys hate 10vs10 in wargame

I just played it and we got our shit absolutely slapped by blufor but it was enjoyable
>>
>>121035604
Because the worst part of an already shitty community gather there like flies

USSR and USA should be the only countries that were capable of doing everything by them selves logically, everyone else was supposed to have coalitions.

>>121036121
do you thin the red v blue balance for this would be better if USA was constrained to a thematic deck?

I'd just leave it as it is and see what people end up choosing.
>>
>>121036340
yeah that seems best
>>
>>121036243
I think the Red v Blue balance would be better if things were standardised price and performance wise.

But Eugen cannot into simple math or logic.
>>
>>121036639
I prefer the current RD to an RD where everything is "standardised".
>>

Standardised doesn't = symmetrical balance,
It means non arbitrary values.

They're only arbitrary because you don't agree with them.
>>
>>121036914
No they are arbitrary because they are arbitrary.
I don't think you understand what arbitrary means.
>>
>>121036953
It means "anon doesn't like them" in the way you use it, which, while incorrect, is something I didn't want to lord over you. Most units are priced with a very obvious logic to it.
>>
>>121037037
It's okay to pretend that, but we all know that isn't true, also i wasn't talking about price, and you don't even know what i was refering to in the first place.

But it's okay to troll post everyone in a while.

in online play strategies such as spamming an assload of tanks won't work though so you need to painfully learn how to combine units so you don't get ass raped

You can always go to some range and try to hit a target with an smg at 400 meters.
Most other weapon ranges in game are similary distanced from realism.

>>
>>121045121
I think that was before the scandi patch.
>>
>>121045283

One problem with NSWP mech is they don't have a heavy APC to push out other APC's. Their great special forces are all religated to helicopters (and no LSTR at all). Also their air tab is a lot weaker than Ec/Scandi.

Still the best mech option on red.

Other mech decks are less reliant on their SF as a whole.

Not getting LSTR robs NSWP of their superlauncher, while EC and Scandi have Pzf3 and Eryx/CGM3.

Current 1v1 meta is pretty varied, but recon bradley is a big player, and a US unit. Aside from that, the whole US recon tab is a miracle really.

Patriots are obviously god, and if you go norad your tanks go from decent to best in the game. DAPs are the best AA helo in the game, the only thing that has a chance of trading equally with them is chinese and thus never seen in 1v1.

The only real drawback is their antihelo AA and subpar fighters.

Pretty much. People whine about shit like longbows or ATACMS but in general US kind of sucks donkey balls. Eurocorp and USSR dominate ranked anyway.
>>
>>121064424
US is good enough that its down to skill. Honestly, their only real issue is air force being very suboptimal. Recon bradleys, chapprals, patriot, helos, and abrams line make up for having bit weak infantry tab, but even then marines and SMAW are still very strong. IMO its still stronger than scandis, RD, or Eblock.

They also have a big problem with arty, sure ATACMS is cool but it's no substitute for a proper cluster MLRS like MARS, BM-27 or Smerch. Everyone knows how trash paladins are, and NORAD doesn't get any 120mm mortars as well. This is compounded by the USAF not having any medium bombers worth a shit, so it makes it a lot harder for a NORAD deck to assault a fortified position.

>Look at mixed Blue moto/mec

3 US units max, recon Bradley, F-15C, Chaparral

The only reason pure Eurocorps fell out of favor is that Scandi got a ton of best-in-class units.

does it even use chaparall? All the big boys seem to use Crotales. But the Bradley is honestly quite key unit in those moto decks. Isn't it close to being only thing in those decks that keep them from being swarmed by medium tanks?

> their only real issue is air force being very suboptimal

That actually ruffles my feathers more than I'd like to admit. Eugen brutally undermodeled USAF, gave its toys to other BLU coalitions (in addition to their plasma gun space units), gave them ahistorically poor infantry and then tried to make up with it with, what? An also-downgraded Patriot and MLG360noscope Longbro?
>>
>>121072109

Said US units max. Recon Bradley is very important, but the other 2 are just contenders.

Crotale makes Chaparral completely obsolete. Wheeled, tougher, better accuracy, 10 points less, and one step up in availability.

Hon Hon Hon, french IRAA from 1979 has 60% accuracy.

>>121080094
Despite constant Slavboo crying, USSR is easily the most well-rounded and balanced individual nation in the game. They have units for almost every level of performance at almost every single price level to match. Other nations may have individual units that slightly excel past them in stats, but for a truly fully-fledged nation able to handle every situation COMFORTABLY, there's simply no match, not even US. Hence their utter dominance.

Mission needs

>More frames
>More AA, after the initial shilkas guarding the arty there is no threat.
>Civ traffic disabled
>Less blogging in teamspeak, people are talking about irrelevant shit rather than calling out when they're dropping munitions and egressing, the amount of near collisions is in the teens in just half an hour.
>More simultaneous groups of enemy. At the moment all 10 or so people are attacking the same groups of completely undefended enemy targets, which in combination with lack of comms, is adding to the potential collisions, etc. Spreading enemy assets around different areas would allow people to organise into different flights and work semi-independently, rather than everyone swarming the same 4 arty units.
