"Empire loves their damn lists."
I play tactical FPS games like Insurgency, Sandstorm, etc.
...ranking up further will only transform you into a magic bullet sponge for the ai as you will be targeted more often
Not in the works yet, but I'm 100% making a video with examples showcasing this exact issue.
In other news I completed every single achievement in Day of Infamy yesterday. Good game, would recommend to anybody who wants something like what Sandstorm is falsely advertised to be.
At first, I was disappointed by Day of Infamy because I thought it would just be WW2 Insurgency (although it wasn't really advertised like that anyway), but it's a pretty good game. Good shit getting all the achievements; I'm still working on some, but some of my achievements are bugged (i.e. the grenade ones) and I can't seem to get those, ever.
@planetcanada I'm probably gonna start a thread about a similar mode later today or something.
Ambush was my favorite mode in Ins2014. I don't know if adding it now to Sandstorm would unnecessarily split the playerbase further, but it was a great game mode.
I don't think it would split the playerbase at all, really. Ambush already has a dedicated playerbase that hasn't moved to Sandstorm since it's not in-game yet.
I do have a massive thread on the general side on AI issues that I think need to be tweaked, and I linked this video there, but I'm gonna make a separate post about it:
So, this video has six clips. I'll talk about them in order.
I die by a bot seemingly not in view? I wasn't shot through the wall, either. Maybe it's a netcode thing or something.
This clip is actually a bug that I've talked about before, but this is a perfect example of what I'm talking about. AI can basically see through anything that's transparent and anything that can be walked through. This includes leaves on trees. grass on the ground, and even the curtains in Objective Alpha on Outskirts HC Insurgents.
A bot melees me while in midair? You can't even see the animation, either.
A bot manages to disable my gun with a melee charge, even though the melee charge didn't even hit me?
A suicide bomber kills me through a solid concrete wall on Outskirts? He didn't even seem close to it when the vest went off, either.
A suicide bomber yells and detonates, but his cell phone never goes off.
As mentioned in the thread, the team are still committed to developping this PvP mode. However, I'll pass your opinions on to the team, so they can have a better idea about this.
In the recent streams, Mikee went a bit more in-depth on why Ambush is being delayed, and while I'm still not happy about the news, he did at least make the whole decision a bit clearer. Still, I kinda wish it was picked over Outpost lol.
