It's waaaay too heavily tilted towards rogues, specifically rape ambush gangs.

I'd be totally down with fun shootouts against rogues. But, that basically never occurs due to the mechanics which overwhelmingly favor ambush ganks.

So yeah, I don't bother going in the Gank Zones anymore, it's just absurd.

Not like you couldn't have predicted this though I mean that was even shown during their very first pseudo narrated gameplay video

It wasn't like this early on. There used to be disincentives to going rogue. So much so that you didn't run into them very often, and you could actually farm in the DZ. Then they nerfed the penalties for dying as a rogue and within days the place was just gank city. Then they added that stupid rope cutting bullshit. Griefers paradise now.

I quit a week or so before they released Falcon Lost. A few co-workers played for a while longer, but they all quit last month. The game is now split between snoozefest of ridiculously repetitive "endgame" missions, and the rage-inducing bullshit of the dark zone.

That they've done nothing to add any kind of variation or random events to these missions is probably their biggest failing. Also their absolutely pathetically insecure client, and failure to do anything about the cheating and exploiting that caused the DZ to be so stupidly unbalanced, and that they allowed to continue for months. And their apparently complete lack of understanding of how to balance loot drops, stats and gear in a game like this.

The game is shit, and I hope their expansion fails miserably. They don't deserve any more money for their massive fuckup (PI).

I'm hoping the single player part is a decent length and fun. I'm not sure the whole game can ride on the MP part after the first one failed.

If they don't have some kind of open beta that is a big success (ala Overwatch), this game is going to flop because everyone who got burned on the last one will avoid it, and all of us that saw those people get burned will avoid it. They're going to have to prove to everyone that the game is solid and worth it, and they can only do that with some kind of free play period.

I still don't see why 100K units on screen is at all desirable from a gameplay perspective. It would be an unmanageable mess.

Ashes doesn't give you individual control over your units. You control squads of units that are in the same-ish area, and similarly you issue attacks at squads.

That's great, but even if you have 10 units per squad, that's still 10,000 squads to control. It's ridiculous.

See here's the thing. Having said cards, having air fresheners, and smelling like something isn't a crime. When you have to try this hard to convict someone of "something" you're a bad cop and you're not doing your job.

Which is why he wasn't charged for having air fresheners or smelling like something... He was charged for having 50 bogus credit cards. Which is illegal. There are billions of dollars in credit/debit fraud losses annually, is stealing money not a crime in your neck of the woods?

What was the probable cause for the search?

Best bet for this game is to mod it. Nexusmods has some that rebalance weapons, change the frequency of encounters, etc.

It's not like you can manage 100K units anyway, so it would be pointless to put that many on-screen. Who the fuck wants to play that? It's retarded.

Would this be one of the best free to play games around?
It is. All paid content is cosmetic IIRC.
There are a couple things that are QoL as well, like stash tabs and extra character slots. You get 4 stash tabs by default, and 24 character slots. So you'll probably want to pick up a supporter pack at some point if you like the game, if only to get some more tabs.

I've been playing for a few years and have bought several supporter packs. The game is great, constantly expanding, well-supported, and totally worth it.

Highest I've gone with a character is 91. I don't have much interest in the grind at that point. I've done Atziri, but not uber. Highest map I've done is a T13. By then I usually want to play another build. I had 3 characters at lvl 90-91 last league. I linked my first 6L last league too. Was a Carcass Jack

Just getting started today really. Prophecy stuff seems pretty cool. Makes leveling more interesting for sure. Hopefully this league will be as good as the last one.

The game is a lot of fun. I'll play several matches each night. I still kinda suck, but I have improved. The balance is fairly good, with only a few tweaks needed most likely. It'll be interesting to see what kind of longevity it has.

The guy really shouldn't have to stutter and apologize his way through announcing a delay. That kind of news should be greeted with thunderous applause from the gaming community.

Instead the man receives death threats.. Way to be gamers! Stay classy..

It's the Internet. You get death threats when you draw attention to yourself for any reason.

I've been having a blast with Doom SP campaign. I think I have 3 missions left to finish it. I'll probably start over on a harder setting after that. Might try some multiplayer, but I think Overwatch is going to be my main multiplayer game for the foreseeable future.

It's really not just a bunch of areas that lock you in until you clear them. There are areas like that in each mission, but the missions are not just a series of rooms like that. Also, those lock-down areas are good-sized areas and I've found those fights to be pretty fun. There are certainly more than 6 monsters at a time too, unless maybe you're playing on the easiest setting or something. Finding all the secrets is pretty fun too.

The game is fantastic, and deserves the top spot right now.

This game has some rough edges and is clearly the darling of a smaller studio. It could be a fantastic game or it could end up basically Alpha Protocal'ing all over the place. Time will tell. We certainly are having a landmark year for games if the spring has anything to say about it. Would be nice if that trend continues with a deep action RPG.

Alpha Protocol was a good game! I played through it 3 times in a row. It definitely had some rough spots, but overall it was a lot of fun.

What I want to see is more of the story about the 1st wave of The Division (the player is part of the second wave) and more of the story about how it all went down, and the rogue agents.

Yeah, they really screwed up by not doing more with the story, and they've pretty much wasted most of what they created by not doing any sort of endgame that utilizes the city outside of the DZ. They really didn't think this thing through.
