Zipper Merging in Traffic Seems Rude but Research Shows It Is the Best Approach.

I remember reading an article about this a couple of years ago. Even though I know it's the most efficient way, it still pisses me off when people cut.

I admit I always cut, but unlike 99% of the drooling mouthbreathers here in Tulsa, I can actually drive, so I just coast along the main line waiting for the line to accelerate, then I smoothly slide into one of the inevitable gaps that happens when a line of cars accelerates. Nobody ever has to brake for me or is hindered by me doing this, and yet people still get pissed.

Most of the idiots who "cut", of course, try to merge in when everyone is braking or when everyone is already standing still, thus causing clumps and delays.

MERGE WHEN THE LINE IS EXPANDING, NOT WHEN IT'S CONTRACTING, IDIOTS.

News Comments > Star Wars: Battlefront II Multiplayer Beta Opens
50. Re: Star Wars: Battlefront II Multiplayer Beta Opens Oct 7, 2017, 13:54 Creston
 
Downloading it now. I gotta admit that I WANT this to be awesome, because I badly need some good Star Wars gaming.

Edit : So... eh. I suck badly at the galactic battleground (or whatever it's called) mp part, mostly because I can't figure out why sometimes I can see enemies as outlines through buildings, and other times I can't? So most of the time I wind up getting killed by people I never see.

Then you respawn, which takes 5-10 seconds, followed by 20-30 seconds of running to get back to where you roughly estimate where the action is, 30 seconds of running around trying to find something to shoot or defend, only to get killed again by something quick, and repeat. I guess that's the bane of all mp shooters, but it does seem as if you spend an awful amount of time just waiting and running, rather than fighting. I'm sure that ratio is skewed much better if you're actually good rather than a schlep like me, and I think that's always kind of been the scourge of the Battlefield/front series.

It also seems as if the Naboo map, at least initially, is too large for a 20vs20 match? It seems pretty empty at times. Once you get to the palace part of it the action is far more intense because it's a few small corridors.

Heroes are definitely brutal, especially Darth Maul and the Hero robot, they murder with impunity. But for all the "oh it's so easy to get them" talk, they still cost 3000-5000 BP per use, which really isn't a trivial amount of BP. In the four matches I played I only rarely saw a hero here and there, and it mostly seemed to be the same few players who had them, so it's really not the "Everyone gets heroes!" thing they're trying to make it out to be. Only once did I get close to 3000BP. Though again, I suck.

I tried to do the starfighter one, and there weren't enough players to start it. That doesn't bode well for that mode when even in a free open beta on a Saturday afternoon, nobody is playing it...

The ancillary modes seem alright, arcade was decent fun, and there does seem to be a LOT of stuff to do beside the main mp mode, though most of it is locked away in the beta.

I also really couldn't figure out what the point was of "leveling up?" Does it even get you anything?

In any case, this will rise or fall with the single player for me. If it's a good, meaty 8-10 hour campaign, I can see myself getting this and enjoying it. If it's the typical 5 hour EA shovel affair, then I think there's plenty of other things coming out that I will enjoy more.

I will say this, it played super fucking smooth on High on my ancient-ass rig with a GTX970 at 1080p, and it looks phenomenally gorgeous. I really wish I would have gotten to play the Starfighter battles. Will try again tonight maybe.

I remember a time when this game was about crime and heists and such, instead of basically now being HotWheels Online.


So what's their plan for RDR2 Online? Within six months it'll be Minecraft?

I have one question: Was the port done by Ubisoft Kiev? If so, it's going to be garbage on day one, and will take at least six to eight patches to become something resembling stable.

Yeah, I'm sure they COULD, I mean, technically we could probably put the entire US on solar and batteries.

I'm sure the people of Puerto Rico would rather have power back in the next ten years, though, Elon. They may not want to wait for your Gigafactory to create enough batteries for an entire nation of 3.41 million people.

That's pretty damn tacky there, Telltale. You couldn't spend the couple of hours to draw the scene yourself?

As for Steam, why don't you just leave the username/pw to said person? Problem solved.

Surely there's going to a challenge in court, asking for a stay against the FCC's ruling?

Probably, but the court will (rightfully) say that the FCC has been given the authority by Congress to make decisions such as this, and thus the decision is perfectly legal.

That it screws over 350 million Americans is irrelevant for the law.

Is there a server browser?

FYI, rubberbanding increased in bf1 as well so not sure what's going on. It's like the servers deteriorated over the last few weeks.

It's either ISPs going "we paid for Ajit Pai, so fuck all the gamers in the world" or EA got a great deal on some bandwidth in North Korea.

Out of curiosity, can you play all the old seasons of content if you start now? Or can you only play season 14?

Yes, you can play all the old content including missions that were from launch. The only thing is these new seasons are all end-game so if you're talking a brand-new account you'll have to spend the time getting to a level where you can tackle these missions, or have an existing player mentor you (or whatever they call the mechanic) through the missions.

Thanks, I appreciate it.
