Valve is becoming a Nazi type regime in the way they treat their customers and user base. They are really starting to piss me off with their business model.

Well, I had been waiting on this game for a very long time to come out on the PC. I never thought it would. So glad they did.

So I picked it up on GMG for $23.10 with this 23 percent off Voucher. 23PERC-WTHGMG-ADVENT

Go and buy it, you just can't beat this price.

At the rate of banning they are doing, they won't have anyone left playing the game.

Where is the MOD that makes the game fun?

There are no amount of mods that can make this game fun. Only a complete overhaul of the game adding a Story and Campaign can do that. You can only make it look better but that has never been the issue with this game.

Damn straight Spanky. I'm keeping my Windows 7 machine for life. I got Windows 7 on one system and Windows 10 on another just for kicks. But I don't feel "safe" giving up my 7 anytime soon. More truthfully said, probably never, well, until I'm dead. Then I might loosen my grip a bit.

Im with you, this is my feeling exactly on Win 10. Win 10 can go straight to hell and fucking die a horrible death.

I can understand the frustration, but multi-gpu setups are niche within a niche, so I can easily see why support is low priority for developers too.

I picked this up already. Looking forward to it once I take a break from FO4. Maybe there'll be a patch or two by then.

^ This,

I would be very curious as to how many of us blues crew here actually run multi GPU setups. I'm betting its very minimal. and that is why devs don't bother with supporting it very often.

And btw, this game has that shitty DRM Denuvo. Another reason to avoid this game.

Secondly. when you have steam there is absolutely no reason at all to have a micro-transactions when Steams has its own built in transaction store as it is. So what reason could they implement this other then trying to sidestep Values process?

Where are you getting that they're not running this through Steam? Their site mentions the Steam Market several times.

Some of you guys are just dumb as hell. I didn't say they weren't using it. I said why are they trying to sidestep it when they all ready have Steams process built in?

Why add a transaction market when you already have steams? What logical reason could they or anyone really have for this type of shenanigans.

Because they want it integrated it in the game itself? That's like asking why Dota has a store in the game when Steam has a marketplace already, it's easier for the player and more streamlined.

OH? is that the excuse?

Steam requires all DLC to be purchasable through either it or it's marketplace, so yes, that's their "excuse", it's just another front end.

Stop constructing pathetic things to be offended about.

No, I don't think I will, so if you don't like it get the fuck out.

lol, nah, it's much more amusing to stay and witness the hilarity.

Well, the jokes on you or should I say between your legs. Enjoy that hilarity. Middlefinger

I understood perfectly; your original post used the exact words "pay to win." If you're just being so incredibly sloppy with that term that you're not bothering to differentiate between mechanical and cosmetic items then your opinion isn't worth considering, because you will happily invent a reason to complain where none presents itself. You don't like the game, fine. That means you're not affected by this and should toddle off elsewhere.

Wrong, first of you need to get a clue. When people like you sit there defending this shit that's a problem. its saying its OK to let devs implement this bullshit which is why we are seeing this shit more and more.

What a dumb question, that's like asking if having more lanes on a freeway makes traffic flow better. Well of course it does. but it also depends on the game and how its written. So this is a trick question.

Well, dude, ya read the article? Nope. Of course you haven't or you would have come across this one here...

In our tests, all the tested games ran with no problems with “only” 4 GiB. In some games, it seems even to run with more fps with 4 GiB than with more RAM.

So the question is by far not as "dumb" as you seem to think it is. Less knee-jerking for you, Sir, lest you make yourself look "dumb".

CJ piss off!!


And its exactly what I said you dumbass about how the games are coded and written. Dohh!!!

And BTW, its not about the ram so much anymore as it is the GPU. I seriously have doubts about how these guys did their test.

Well, the new one is pretty much the same old crap, gets very old and boring after a while. I wish I could undo using this and just give it way to someone, because I wont ever go back to this game again. Its just not that much fun.

The point of the game is figuring out how to use the different classes. If you stopped before the firebug and demo were added, you've missed some pretty big changes. Overall, it can get a little tedious while we're waiting for them to finish the last four classes, but since there's already a pretty decent custom mapping scene, there's still some interesting variety.

no one is going to chastise them over DLC, but as soon as a pay to win market is added to the game, all hell breaks loose.

At least read the article, dude. The stuff they're adding is cosmetic. Hats, basically. People are just throwing a temper tantrum because they're not done being angry at Overkill.

No, you need to read what I said, the point of my comment was the game is the same old shit over and over. And yes I recently played this. I saw nothing that changed my mind about the game.

And again, its you that needs to read and understand. I said anytime devs go adding a micro market it gets people all steamed up. Same thing here. if they want to add cosmetic crap then add it as DLC they don't need an in game market.

And don't think for a second that this wont get out of hand later on when they star adding more crap to the market.

Ended up getting this game free from a contest I won. liked the first one but it really got old after awhile running around surviving the wave, then run to the vendor.

Well, the new one is pretty much the same old crap, gets very old and boring after a while. I wish I could undo using this and just give it way to someone, because I wont ever go back to this game again. Its just not that much fun.

I really don't understand why developers just don't leave well enough alone. no one is going to chastise them over DLC, but as soon as a pay to win market is added to the game, all hell breaks loose.

I'd say there's about a 75% chance if I use a terminal, I'll get stuck to it. I understand that's common enough to cast some serious doubt over their QA effort.

Well that's the funny thing.
I have never been stuck to a terminal.
My 2 sons have never been stuck to a terminal.
My friends son has never been stuck to a terminal.

It's funny indeed, because the reason some people are getting stuck is because their hardware is "too good". Google it. You're fucked if this game runs above 90fps.

In all seriousness, why do you even need to run the game over 60fps? Your just asking for problems when you guys go outside the prams with this crap. I have none, zero sympathy for anyone who thinks they need to run their game above 60. The Human eye cant even go beyond that or even keep up. Its pointless and senseless.

Case and point, people who are tweaking their system and the game to run outside of what the game was designed for and why it was locked down to 60 in the first place. Gluten's for punishment is what you are.

But hey, keep on telling us the game is broken when its you ass clowns that are breaking it.

Games like this almost always only QA the critical path stuff. Everything else is a 'if you can get through it once, ship it' kind of affair. Given that Bethsoft knows the PC folks will always do the heavy lifting as well makes them cheap and lazy to boot.


Sorry, brother, but I really doubt that is the case. I'm pretty sure with 100 QA testers they have tried testing every little approach. Sometimes you just don't see them all when dealing with a game of this shear size.


I can only give a reference to when we created our two mods how we tested the game over and over and even had other people we brought in to help us test the mod.

We thought we had all of the issues locked down. But sure enough, as soon as we released the game to the public someone would always find something that we never thought of. It was a head scratcher for sure how we missed it, but there it was starring us right in the face.

You really cant call them being cheap, im pretty sure that's the furthest thing they were when this game was being QAed.
