If you use an AMD cpu you will be banned for some stupider reason.
Hah!

In reality though, anybody playing this on PC should be banned from gaming.

So will it take you being banned from Blues to quit being a douche?

But yet a game like Overwatch has magic hit detection based per weapon and Hanzo is still in the game?

60 hours a week? That's insane. Work smarter, not harder. No one ever died saying 'Gee I should have spent more time at work.'


We are gearing up for Peak (Thanksgiving to Jan 1st), and I knew I'd have to go through "the trenches" to get full time, so bring it on.

So here is how it goes.

Single Player games (especially that are 3D) typically have more costs then a multiplayer game. Story, art assets, scripting, modeling, animating, voice work, cut scenes, music, etc etc etc.

Multiplayer games like MOBA's, Card Games, Battle Royal, pvp/etc/etc, require less overall resources.

Take for example the Battlefield series. Started as a multiplayer game, went single player/multiplayer for a few games, then back to multiplayer. Same with Battlefront II (EA series), was Multiplayer only, but had some pretty nasty backlash, and will have single player and multiplayer.

Overall multiplayer pvp games are cheaper and quicker to get to market, but like Lawbreakers has shown, unless you have a pretty sweet gimmick (and actually listen to your fan base like PUBG) it's not going to be sustainable.

Keep this console port trash off the PC.

You need to shut the fuck up. Enough with all of your bullshit.

I knew your worthless ass couldn't resit coming in here and bashing the game. Your so predictable. If you dont like, then go find another forum to hang out in, because your worthless ass is not welcome here.

Hurts much?

Only as much as having a second account to agree with your first?

I guess you’ve never owned a Jeep. As an example, why is it that the the Jeep Wrangler has one of the highest resell values of any car???


Yep. That dude is obviously just taking one example of a bad car (which ALL brands will have from time to time) and blowing it up out of proportion. I've seen morons do that so many times it becomes pretty obvious now.


Not surprising seeing his comment history. There are some on this site that really make me wonder...

Don't worry about it, moron, JD Power's 2017 reliability rating safely trumps your anecdotal presumption.

Dodge, Jeep and Fiat are 4th worst, 2nd worst and worst, respectively. Since it's all the same company (FCA), I'm going to go with them being pretty damn unreliable.

But keep wondering there, champ.


It’s been documented time and time again that these “independent reliability” companies (ie. Consumer reports,etc) are bias. It also has also been documented that they “interview” specific groups to get the outcome they are looking for. Same goes for politics.

Show me a comparable vehicle to the Jeep Wrangler, that has the same capabilities, gets abused off road, and keeps going! There is a reason the Wrangler, in some form, has been around since the 1940s.

Drive your “reliable” Toyota or Honda through the rough mountains of Wyoming, Utah, Colorado year after year and the true reliability numbers will surface! I could go on and on!!

Once you own a Jeep, then come back to me with facts! Until then keep you inaccurate opinions to yourself.

78 Jeep Cherokee Levi Special Edition. Was a gas guzzling steel tank. Until shit broke down on it from everyday driving. I miss the monster, but not the repair costs.

Yes, you are out of the loop, so stop trying to troll.

Destiny 2 has already lost 78% of it's console player base, and there are several threads on Reddit comparing the game to No Man's Sky, with 1000's of comments each.

Yet here you are, championing the game. You work for Activision?

How do you get 78% loss when their peak was 3.4 million and was 1.5 million 2 days ago? I'm not the best at math but that is around 55% give or take.
Granted loosing that is bad, but 1.5 million players is nothing to sneeze at (OMG WoW lost 10 million subscribers and ONLY has 20 million left!!!).

And after going through the forums, it seems quite a few people are bitching about how they rushed through the game, and grinded the hell out of the end game.
But these are NOT your a-typical gamers. These are the min/max players that are typically found in top guilds, Diablo 3, etc.

I take that back. I finally had to replace the sparkplugs and wire harness, and valve cover seal from the factory ones.

Being an Amazonian my bet still is on the Cincinnati Area. We just opened the largest ground sort center at CVG. We have a major expansion in development at CVG Airport (and which in turn Amazon will finally buy out DHL), and it puts them pretty central to the rest of the sort centers in the US.
