looks like "Left for Dead the RPG", I was REALLY interested in this game when they first announced it 5 years ago, back then they wanted to do a melee focused game with Romero/Brooks zombies (ie. they don't run).

where's that tool that kept saying player numbers were increasing

I'll stand by past statement that the player numbers were rising, unfortunately it looks like the game has been steadily dropping off by about half since I said that. But in my defense it looks as if ALL player numbers have dropped across all games monitored by steam, not sure whats going on there, could it be week vs weekend gaming I don't know.

Personally I have no trouble finding scrims and ringers if needed, there is a really solid community around this game so far, pubs might be a different story, of which i have no interest in.

In fact, I think the reason the non-inverted people make such a big deal out of it is because they know they are doing it backwards.

+1 lol

Your monitor is a 2D surface.

yes and no, its more a "window" into the game. obviously invert/non-invert is a preference, no amount of debate is going to change peoples opinions.

I agree 100% on the crossfire issues, I wish I would have realized that before I dumped almost $700 on video cards, but like I said, live and learn.

back on topic, The Withcer 2 is incredible and there is not enough hours in the day to work full time, sleep, scrim Brink, and play the Witcher. Oh well, at least I'm on the verge of a 3 day weekend and its supposed to rain all 3 days

you move your head BACK to look up and your head FORWARD to look down.
this old argument again, inverted is natural, you move your head BACK to look up and your head FORWARD to look down.

Looking at your monitor, viewing the desktop, when you push the mouse forward, which way does the cursor move? Up. Pull back. Down.

If you were talking about the 4000 series I'd agree, but I bought a 6950 back in late March and it's not only quiet (Even at 40% fan speed) but I'm running the 11.2 drivers in Witcher 2 and getting great performance.

What exactly does ATI need to fix? I haven't seen any anomalies in the visuals with my card.

The 69xx series fans are super loud.
Every review I read on these cards said they where loud, so i was somewhat prepared, but I wasn't expecting this. At 60% or more it sounds like a jet talking off. It drowns out my V6 push/pull by about 3 times (and the V6 is know as a extremely loud cooler).

Every new game I've played since I got these cards have had performance issues, where the nvidia camp seems to be fine. Brink, Witcher 2, Crysis 2 (has problems with both ATI and Nvidia). I guess the Witcher's performance isn't horrible but I was expecting a lot more outta my rig from it, i7@4GHZ, 8GB Ram, 6950 CrossfireX. 40-60 FPS on high (SSAO, and ubersampling off) @ 1920x1200

Twitter posting by ATI about Witcher 2 hotfix driver including crossfire support:
http://twitter.com/#!/CatalystCreator

ATI needs to be on the ball more with developers. However, Witcher 2 has the Nvidia's "The way it's meant to be played" logo. But still.

Agreed, I'm super disappointed with these cards, the drivers are junk (every new game i've tried on them i've had issues) and they are so damn loud, gaming with headphones is a must.

I should have went with SLi'ed 570's instead. Live and learn I guess.

I'm apparently old school; I just CAN'T play an FPS view game without mouse inversion. I guess it's whatever you get used to. The standard a long time ago was what is now inverted, so newer gamers prefer the non-"flight control" style.
I used to be an inverted FPS player. But after a few years I realized that I had to switch and unlearn that because it's a bad habit to get into I realized. I don't use inverted mouse on the desktop, why should I use it for fps?

It was HELL trying to unlearn the inverted mouse controls it took a while but I did it. It's the gaming of equivalent of kicking a bad habit like smoking. Well okay, I might be overstating it a bit.

this old argument again, inverted is natural, you move your head BACK to look up and your head FORWARD to look down.

Best game I ever played.

I wish there where some ATI performance tweaks, I just switched from a SLI set up to 6950 crossfire setup (still need to apply the 6970 bios), and the game runs not as well as I had hoped Most likely its a ATI driver problem, but what isn't

Changing the mouse to inverted was a chore.

ESL (http://www.nationalesl.com/us/), TGL (http://league.totalgamingnetwork.com/), CSN (http://cyber-sports.net/), TWL (http://teamwarfare.com), IGL (http://www.playigl.com), CEVO (http://www.cevo.com/). Also its perceived this game will be at Quakecon,

As far as unlocks go, I'm sure there will be a server config very soon that removes unlocks, and quite honestly its not hard to unlock all the needed tools and Splash Damage is very welcoming to helping leagues. It's obvious there is things that need to be added (record function again) and things that need to be removed (engies turrets and landmines, the random factor needs to be removed) to make league friendly, but SD is well aware of these things and we should see some changes/configs very soon.

You're completely delusional and 100% full of shit, player numbers have been dropping exponentially since release just a few days ago.

Prime time and only about 50 out of 1000 servers showing have more than 10 players in them.

It sucks to admit it but Brink STINKS, buzz from esports community - don't make me laugh.

Current number of players, Bad Company 2 has more people playing.

http://store.steampowered.com/stats/


Brink currently has more players and 1/3rd more at peak for the day. And Brink numbers started at just over 10K on Tuesday and now they are up over 15K and climbing. Don't say someone is full of shit when YOUR link proves YOU wrong!

5,201 15,761 BRINK
5,191 10,097 Battlefield: Bad Company 2

hmmm and every league has plans for Brink

Fuck all the haters who say Brink sucks, its getting a lot of buzz from the esports community, and its player numbers have been steadily increasing all week.

What is wrong with you people? LA Noire week? It's WITCHER 2 week!

Totally not buying this game.. nothing I've read about it is good.. shame too.

everyone in this thread that has played the game has been leaving positive feedback.
If your talking about reviews, keep in mind they are all based off the xbox version and their panties are in a knot because it doesn't play like COD and their is no single player.

You can tell bots from players while in a game if you look at the scoreboard. Players will have a connection quality indicator that's typically green, while bots will have a silhouette icon.

Game seems to crash much more with today's patch.

I seem to lose sounds on more maps now

And ATI performance still leaves a lot to be desired

Brink is awesome, its the new esports game without a doubt. If you like the Splash Damage games you'll love Brink, but COD KDR whores need not apply as you'll hate it. The socreboard shows just that, a score not KDR's or even kills, just your score.

like competitive community will even use the escort modes.

and Brink's speed seems to be a lot faster then CS, which is still the biggest competitive game.
