Did you watch it? He's taking the 5th on stuff that he doesn't really need too.

Yeah, I wouldn't take Congress' word on that either. It seemed like a whole lot of "trust us, the DA won't use this against you! It's perfectly fine to answer this innocuous question!" to me.

The trolling description is being applied because of the smirking, eye rolling, and comments like, "I'll take my counsels advice over yours."

But you're right, he totally can do that. But pleading the fifth while being a grinning twat, yeah I'd consider that trolling.

Boohoo. Poor Congress.

I think you misunderstood the point of my reply... You said it wasn't trolling, I'm saying it was. I don't give a tinker's fuck about congress' feelings.

I think the King of the Hill / Battle Royale gameplay was way more popular than they were expecting. They were spending their resources on further fleshing out the long term survival game but everyone was playing the quick battle royale game.

I don't think it's necessary to split them though, they were already separate modes and there is plenty of crossover enhancements. A bug in one is a bug in the other.

I'm not sure why they call it trolling. It's called the Fifth Amendment. As much as our government likes to pretend it doesn't, the Constitution is actually valid for everyone, even asshats like Shkreli.

The FTC has a criminal case pending against him, so OF COURSE he isn't going to answer Congress' questions. Nobody would have.

Now the question is whether Congress will hold him in Contempt of Congress, but that hasn't happened too often.

fun for a few hours then gets stale. needs a real MOBA mode, without it it's just small-scale arena stuff with a couple objectives.

God no. It's fine if you get bored with competitive MP FPS but many don't. You can keep your moba, rpg, progression, elements out of it. Go play those if that's what you want.

I happened to watch Total Biscuit's review of the beta last night and agree with pretty much everything he said.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kP8PtDxxHpU

It's going to be very exciting seeing the competitive scene that develops around this game.

Anyone lucky enough to try this out? How is it looking at this point?

There was a lot of discussion on it during the last beta but it's been on break for a long while. I'm excited to see the changes for the new beta.

Why is it that everyone is comparing it to battlefield?
Battalion 1944 ~= Battlefield 1942. Same number of syllables, similar structure in the name, many of the same sounds, etc. It's what you'd call a game if you wanted to call it BF1942 without actually calling it BF1942.

Yeah but Blue's joke has distracted from the video where they say they're essentially going for Call of Duty 2. Now everyone thinks it's a spiritual successor to BF1942.

I'm repostin my post from the original post.

The most important thing to get right in an MP shooter is the feel of the gunplay and movement. I'm using the word "feel" because there really isn't a better way to describe it. So it's commendable that these guys want to return to an unlock free, skill based MP shooter set in WW2, but if they don't get the feel down nobody is going to keep playing. I wish them luck.

Blue, I'm curious about why you deleted the Battalion 1944 post.

Because I am incapable of reading, and failed to note the announcement was embargoed. Please pretend this never happened and act surprised tomorrow.

Well that would explain it
Thanks.

The problem as I'm reading it that somehow Valve allowed community servers to modify the inventory accessible from the out-of-game menu. That should have never been possible. A community server should be able to have custom weapons, mods, give access to facsimiles of actual normally unlockable weapons skins... It just shouldn't affect the actual inventory or what people see in trade windows. Sounds much more like a Valve bug than the nefarious thing they're making it seem like. Just fix it so they can't do that and move on.
Come on now, that's NEVER been valve's way. They just take a hammer and fix things in the easiest way possible that puts the load on someone else... which is not to fix the bug. At least for the first wave. Maybe they'll do another fix or two in the future before getting around to fixing the root problem (which will likely only happen if someone exploits it even more)

If you read my follow up post you'll see that I conceded to being wrong about the inventory.
There's nothing technical Valve can do about non-inventory items via mods using the same model and name as market/unlockable item. Well nothing other than what they've done by making it against the rules and revoking credentials. Though I would have rather they not made the rules and just made it clear that community server mods are not official, player beware, etc.

I'm shocked they're still cracking away at this, it seemed like the last one was in hospice from the get go.

I've only played the steam mod but it was fun. Only AssCreed and Spy Party have really taken any of the ideas since then.

The last news update said they had more players in December than at any other time during the 10 years it has been out.

News Comments > Offensive Counter-Strike Global Offensive Severs Closed

They updated again and crossed out the part that said: it is also not acceptable to provide players with custom models and/or weapon skins that do not exist in the CS:GO ecosystem]

Which is good because that effectively would have banned things like sticky nades.

But after reading their new clarifications it does seem the issue was simply possessing a valve weapon skin in game if the server mod gave it to you... Not the inventory angle I mentioned earlier. I guess it just aided in scamming or they didn't like how it circumvented their rare weapon system. Servers should still be able to give you some nonsense like "gold M4A1" but they can't give you "Factory New Dragon King" for example.

There is nothing stopping people from modding the game here. It just won't be a ranked server. Considering there is a inventory/barter economy going they are kind of forced in to dealing with these problems on ranked servers.

If some one wants to mod CS:GO nothing is going to stop them if they want to make another CS:Zombies or surf or what ever custom mode.

No you misunderstood. When Valve says "community servers" they are specifically already talking about unranked servers.

The problem as I'm reading it that somehow Valve allowed community servers to modify the inventory accessible from the out-of-game menu. That should have never been possible.

Outdated graphics? I still have yet to see an FPS look as good as this. Shadow Warrior 2 looked amazing though during E3.

See the word "primitive" before "four year-old"?

Strange, I don't see any mention of the original campaign. When I read the FAQ, it did mention Sven will never work with Source. That seems strange, but whatever it's his software.

What do you mean by original campaign?
As far as I know this is the original HL mod just able to run standalone without HL with Valve's blessing.
