I doubt it'll amount to anything for them. Rampant IP theft is the norm in China. Shut them down and they'll be operating again within a day under a new company.

Blizz should just DoS their servers.

News Comments > Warframe Plains of Eidolon Takes Off

Jumped on. Can't find this new shit. Quit. These MMOs need to learn from WoW. When a player logs in to a new major update, fucking put something on the screen. I haven't played Warframe for several months. I can't remember anything. I don't know what's new and what I just haven't done.

Edit: Think I found it. It's a place (Cetus) on Earth.

If it was American Airlines it would automatically beat the fuck out of you and steal your seat.

And it'd be rated 4/5 stars.

Best I've come in was 7/100 (need a new psu my pc shuts down after 15 minutes of gaming :(, was still alive at 7/100 lol), and the building portion is isn't as important then as you have lots of space, and anything being built is a beacon *A PLAYER IS HERE*.

I made it to 2/100 by hiding for almost the entire map (the circle kept closing with me near the edge). Came out with full shield and health with 5 or so of us left. Killed a few people while the other guy built a large base, then I hid behind a tree until he came out (or destroyed my cover with rockets). I died shortly after. He was more prepared. I don't even know how to make traps. I had walls and stairs as an option. I wonder if I have to play the PvE part to unlock those.

Played about 2 hours last night. Got annoyed and alt-f4'd out. Had problems getting it to run on my primary monitor. Hopefully today it'll remember where it was last running. Also turn off the fucking dynamic resolution FPS target thing. I set it to 60. When it couldn't hit 60, the game went to shit. Took me a few minutes to remember I had set that. I'd rather it run at 45 FPS and not look like a Picasso painting. I'm on a 1080TI.

[Rant]
One major problem I have is that some shit isn't explained very well. There's tutorials for what seems like everything (press W to run forward!), but then it's missing for other stuff. For example, I didn't know how to heal myself. After some looking around, I was apparently still in combat so not self-healing, and I had forgotten that we could drain an Orc to get health back. The "Press [Letter] to Execute!" failed to work for me, resulting in a large creature jumping on my head. "Press [Mouse Key]" suddenly pops up. So I push it, but no. You have to push it several times. Result was death. I was near full health and attempting to execute, but then was suddenly dead because I failed a quicktime event I hadn't seen before. I'm still pissed over it.

Hopefully it goes better tonight.

but I guess all of the complaints from PUBG devs kind of made people want to check it out more, knowing it was possibly a more polished and less serious take on PUBG.

This is what I did. Figured this one was free and would give a rough idea of PUBG. I'm not convinced though. Fortnite does feel like a mobile game. PUBG needs a free weekend.

Looks really good, but I never cared for the Final Fantasy type combat. May still get it though. The artwork is beautiful.

I also thought Planetside 2 was pretty good for a couple months a few years ago, and to this day I still don't understand the flow of map control or why EVERYONE is battling for THIS station (and sign-in the next day and no one cares about it). I just accepted this futile struggle to represent war, like Nam.

This was one of the reasons I stopped playing. The battles started to get repetitive with the bases constantly flipping back and forth. There didn't seem to be much reason to holding a base. We attacked the other bases because that's where everyone was, not because there was anything at the base worth having.

Itís been in the game for a couple weeks now. Maybe they were doing a staggered rollout, and itís now available for everyone? I still havenít tried it. Itís not what I got the game for.

I could be wrong, but I believe you had to pay to play by purchasing one of the packs. The Battle Royale is/was released for free now. I think. It'd be a lot easier to figure out if they'd put it on Steam. And until they do (and even after), I don't think PUBG has anything to worry about.

Thought about buying this over the weekend, but hesitated in case Epic goes Silicon Knights on them. They're shooting themselves in the foot.

Lastly, even though there are tutorials, the interface in your ship (home base stuff) is fairly unintuitive. As a returning player recently after a long break and a UI redesign, I literally had no fucking idea what I was doing for the first couple of hours... =)

This. The game has a lot of systems. If you don't mind reading forums and wikis, then it's not too bad. Otherwise it's confusing as hell. You'll either miss a chunk of stuff, or have to spend a fair amount of time learning things. And you'll have to grind. If you solo, some of the lower missions may be hard to find a group to help finish it unless the planet pops up in a daily mission. I know I struggled with the "capture and hold these points better than the 500 enemies coming at you". Fun game though. I usually throw cash at it if I get a 75% off coupon.

Between this and all the Overwatch stuff in the Blizzcon bag, makes me wonder how much money the Overwatch gambling is bringing in compared to WoW. There's a new favorite child at Blizzard.

People were super desperate for the 1070s when they discovered they were awesome with Nicehash/ETH and I sold mine for $170 more than I paid. Stock was gone everywhere and even retailers started jacking them up. Ended up getting a 1080ti thanks to desperate buttcoin miners.

Too bad it fell through the floor. At the height I was getting close to $10 a day from my 1080ti. Now it's lucky to hit $3. Oh well. I bought it for gaming. Was doing Nicehash while I read webpages or the room was cold and I needed a heater going.

Was just talking to my boss about Kaspersky today. We use it, and unfortunately whether it's been taken over by the Russian government or not is only part of the problem. If something does come out or happen, and we're still using it, it's a liability to the business. Kinda sucks. Switching vendors is a pain in the arse. And we're locked in to a contract for another 1.5 years, so we'd basically lose that money.

War of the Chosen is very buggy for me. I've had animations stop, dead bodies stand up, objectives not complete despite doing them (this one is annoying), and sometimes the camera stops following whomever is moving. It's starting to annoy me.
