How about improving performance on low-mid range PC's?! I would love to get into this game but currently, on my Core i5-750 (1st Gen) /2.66ghz, 6gb 1333/DDR3 of RAM and HD7850/1gb, it runs like a slideshow on anything but the lowest of the low settings. I KNOW my system can handle this thing on better graphics settings, it doesn't have to look like the first Novalogic Delta Force in order to be playable...


=-Rigs-=

I had the same video card, but got a GTX 970... game went from horrific and barely playable, to a gorgeous, smooth, beautiful game. I loved my 7850, but I'd highly recommend looking into a new card.

Though, as an ARK admin (sorta player, but I spend a lot of time in ARK), I will say that the game needs a LOT of work. They break something 1:1 with everything they "fix".

Yep.. it got pretty rampant from what I heard. Luckily I played so much of it that I'm actually totally satiated until it comes out. Assuming they can prove that they have competent anticheat. Siege was already a ruse that I'd still be pissed about, if I had paid full price (thankfully it was free).

Or maybe enough people will do it so rampantly that it smacks them in the fact. GTA 5 is STILL filled with cheaters, even.

Is the MP anything like how Warframe is setup? Not the setting it's played in.

As someone who has played both games, sorta.

The game is PVE until you enter the Dark Zone. You can do everything solo, or matchmake to find a group at any time. There is also public area chat, and a social hub. When wandering around, however, you will NOT see other players unless you're in the dark zone or the social hub.

Content scales quite a bit depending on number of players too (PVE-wise). There is one mission in the beta, and it's technically a short one-boss dungeon, with two difficulties. Difficulty affects loot as well as the reward for finishing the mission.

PVP can be done solo, but it's easy to talk to people and group up in the dark zone as well (no friendly fire this way). It's very easy to screw up and get yourself killed, so it's highly advisable to make friends quickly.

I had the same feelings, and I was really disappointed so much was locked (wings, updates, perks, talents, crafting) and NPCs were significantly reduced supposedly, but the PVP was just amazing. A great blend of DayZ but streamlined. A lot of QoL and awesome things were taken into consideration that are usually just "bugs" or ignored, too, like killing the boss in the one mission before he drops (negating his loot) causes more enemies to spawn, one of which drops his loot.

However, ran into invisible ghosting cheaters last night at the very end which makes me VERY worried about the future of the game.

Looks cool but 1) no snowboarding 2) stupid fucking tutorial wants to make you do all sorts of tony hawk bullshit to get through it. I just want to fuck around and ski.

I hit the same wall lol. Back out of it (which crashes the game for me.. ha.) and go back and skip it. Then you can do whatever. It was honestly kinda peaceful, but very boring. Didn't see a single other person. Had a good laugh at the ragdolls spazzing out though.

Don't be ashamed. It's a great game and constantly improving.

It doesn't hurt to try it, especially now that toxicity is less of problem with the new automated report and ban system.

Well, I will not play it competitively, only co-op (pretty sure there's a co-op anyway), as I did with DOTA 2... I COULD play competitively but I just don't want to. The community in DOTA 2 was occasionally toxic even against AI lol... so ridiculous.

I'm a little ashamed to admit I finally made an LoL account for this.

But I did not install it.

Tempted though...

Looking forward to the beta, but worried their shitty, shitty servers and foresight will ruin everything (LIKE USUAL...).

Also a little bit of cringe in that they had to announce "custom controls".

Yeah, plus adding this expansion onto existing season pass holders! Pretty swell move.

Really excited to get back into this game with this DLC, and a friend.

I agree, it looks like Far Cry 4 without guns. Elephants = Mammoths. UI is the same. Animations look the same. World looks very similar.

Just disgusting all-around.

I swear if Ghost Recon: Wildlands sucks...

Bring on more server problems, because Ubisoft really can't be bothered to give a shit!

Also: R6 Siege beta was a disaster. "Guaranteed access" my ass. A lot of preorders didn't even get their keys.

At least they're trying! Pretty minor bonus on top of everything else with Prime, but a decent one.

I just recently removed it myself. That shit pissed me off so badly. It did not make me want to get Windows 10. I didn't want it before, but now I REALLY don't want it. Way to go, Microsoft!

Hmm, I'm still very curious about it. But I don't know if I'll get it, what with XCOM 2 coming out two weeks later. And Dragon's Dogma next week.

Strategy/RPG hype!

Less than two weeks to go and there's barely anything on this game, and practically no gameplay...

Partly worried, partly intrigued. Gearbox hasn't done me badly in the past.

Recently got back into Grim Dawn since it's "feature complete" now (comes out of EA in February). Really good, solid game. Pretty difficult too. You cannot faceroll it like in D3, with every build, on normal. But on the other hand, a huge variety of unique builds are available.

Say what you want, but they put out multiple patches per week (including hotfixes though, but usually one major patch per week)...

Also, obligatory advertisement for a server that I admin on, assuming that's alright. Reasonably boosted rates, mature/friendly community (though still a PVP server), and no mods.

The game does have some really gaping flaws though (primarily optimization, giganotosaurs, and lack of admin/server owner functionality). It works, however.
