Common guys give your head a shake! Why in the absolute hell would I walk into a room(“walk”) silently and very stealthily to capture B in Skirmish being one of only a very small amount of teammates still alive with no reinforcements ONLY TO HAVE MY GUY SCREAM “IM TAKING B” completely blowing my cover? This is just pure stupidity and then what do you think happened next I have three people all pounce on me at the exact same time! There’s a shocker. I know your guys like to yell at teammates when they are close (stupid as well) but I can handle some of it as long as it doesn’t completely blow my cover and on top of that there were no teammates around me there was 2 others alive on my team and they were at a different cap point no where near me. Regardless you want to talk immersion well that totally killed any I had going especially after I so sneakily made my way into the point unnoticed and successfully only to have the game completely ruin it for me to which I shut the game down and stopped playing. Sorry for the novel this really really bothers me and I really hope you guys can address this.
Apparently in this game they can! I’m getting really tired of seeing someone tucked away and all I can see is the top of their head and their eyes yet somehow through some type of sorcery they are able to shoot and kill me. Then to add insult to injury sometimes this happens after taking a bullet straight to the top of the head or between the fucking eyes. Sorry but it’s really getting old...
So first off I think the movement speed while traversing stairs should be a little slower right now it seems as if people are climbing stairs at Mach 1. Second the initial speed of sprinting should be lowered as well just at the beginning of the sprint then once you are in motion up to full speed. As it stands it seems like someone crouched in a corner shouldn’t be able to suddenly cross the entire length of a sizeable room in under a second. Now on to reloading I do not feel that moving an inch while prone while reloading should cancel said reload. I get that it would be extremely difficult to crawl any distance in any direction in prone with no hands (as they are busy reloading) but i also think that just literally touching W,A,S or D should not automatically cancel my reload. This has gotten me killed numerous times and I feel it is extremely overkill. Then to add insult to injury you can be prone (perfectly still of course) and start to reload and then from prone while reloading enter the crouched position or even stand without at all interrupting your reload? Really? Lol that one just kind of makes me laugh to be honest as I don’t really care but let me crawl a little very slowly while I reload please. These are my opinions.
Has anyone heard anything on the next update/patch? Maybe a moderator can toss out a little info? Lol. I’m hoping we hear some juicy info soon I am currently really enjoying the game and love the work you guys have done. That being said there is still a plethora of issues and bugs/glitches. I am sure you guys are working hard as always just hoping to hear something from the devs or even mods in the very near future!
So I wanted to toss a few things out there that have been frustrating me the most as of late. I will not discuss TTK anymore I leave it in the hands of the insurgency gods. I will just say that at the very least please please do not add to the TTK that is all. Please know that some of these are just my opinions but I feel strongly about them and truly hope they at least are considered. I would also like to mention that AMBUSH is a must please I know several people that still play it (and only it) on source and will not purchase SS unless Ambush is added.
#1- The hit registry is still very broken I recorded a few videos of myself clearly shooting people as far as my iron sight was concerned (almost point blank) and nothing happening but could not figure out how to put them on here. I also have video proof of this from the recap even though only certain matches are in the recap? Never the less I assure you it is still in need of much attention.
#2- The very much discussed optimization it’s obvious it still needs improvement. I am running a i-7 8700K with 16Gig HyperX Furry ram and a GTX1080 and playing Push I range anywhere from 55fps(high action) to 120 fps(low action) with settings on very high for the most part (AUTO). This is quite lower than every other game I play (Squad, R6, ARMA3) I get damn near 400 fps playing counter-strike.
#3- Still not getting spawned in with the new wave after death sometimes. It’s extremely annoying to wait sometimes up to a minute just to watch basically your entire team spawn and you remain dead. Especially when it’s your last wave and now your team has no reinforcements. Both of these scenarios have happened to me several times.
#4- The vaulting and climbing still needs much improvement. Why is it so difficult to climb small boxes and objects? The sweet spot to activate a vault is really hit or miss and gets me killed all the time. I fail to climb things that I promise I could have climbed as a 5 year old. I get they have a lot of weight on them but common guys it needs to improve.
#5- Why is it so difficult to prone sometimes? Anytime you hit the prone button your guy should drop. Ever heard of hit the dirt? How about a dive feature at least. Leave it the way it is but if I hold shift+prone my guy dives and I’m not talking a huge long dive just “hits the dirt”! So many deaths because my guy very slowly has to ready himself to lay down? While being shot at?
#6- Is weapon jamming a thing or not? I have seen this several times where I do a ammo check or reload and my active mag is red? And I can’t fire. It’s not a blue mag or a partial or an empty mag it is clearly red in colour. And I must reload or discard the mag. Gets me killed often. Would just like to know what’s happening.
#7- I know hip fire is unreliable but if the person is chewing on the barrel of my rifle I can’t imagine how those bullets could possibly miss. Maybe hit reg.. again. I don’t know.
Anyways once again most of these are just MY OPINION and if you agree great if you don’t that’s fine too leave a comment and I would be more than happy to discuss. That is if you managed to make it this far! Bottom line I do really like the game and want it to succeed. Insurgency has been and I hope it remains my favourite game.
Captain Price if you read this your my hero man lol. I upvoted your post. A drink or two may have been involved. Please don’t lock this!
@s925033 > Knowing when to reload is a big thing in Insurgency2(source), but it's a childplay in Sandstorm.
—I would have to disagree a bit with you there mostly because I played insurgency source for a very long time and the TTK was better I hardly ever ran out of ammo and reloaded less with smarter reloading decisions. Not saying you didn’t need to be smart about reloading in source but in sandstorm I’m always out of ammo if seems especially when using a silencer and it taking almost half a mag to kill someone with heavy armour sometimes makes me have to reload often. So regardless I’m not saying they should speed up the reloads but would be nice to see them reload maybe with a little more urgency! Or just fix the damn TTk. MO.
Can anyone confirm that Badges/Patches are going to be a thing? I would absolutely love to be able to sport an arm patch of say a Canadian flag representing my country (regardless if my name already does lol) and I’m sure others feel the same about their respective flags. But I would love to see patches on hats too etc.. I have always loved when a game gave me the option to rep my country in one or more ways. I know they have CADPAT camo which I love but a lot of people wouldn’t know what that means or what it looks like without explanation. Anyways just a suggestion. Would greatly appreciate it!
Does this happen to anyone else where you will spectate someone and when you switch to a different person it can take a full second or more for the textures or details of say walls and some objects to load? they’re just plain or blank for that first second or two. Sometimes this will even happen when I run into a room fast enough or just change scenery fast enough doesn’t seem to matter what I have the graphics settings set at either.
@whitby Have to agree would be very surprised if they released on the 12th.. If they do prolly gonna be one hot mess lol. I’m thinking big update extended beta again! Just a gut feeling.
@jensiii Well I personally never demanded anything nor do I think we are entitled to anything which is why I usually use words like “Hope” and “would be cool” when discussing this particular topic! But funnily enough the Devs have already confirmed they would like to do something to show their appreciation for our dedication so they clearly think maybe we might be entitled to something??
So there is this sweet little game mode that you guys should really add in the game! I’m sure you’ve played or heard of something similar. You have two teams and one team has a special person they have to escort to a special area and help that special person escape without the special person being killed by the opposing team. Lol for serious though please please just make Ambush happen! How about Search and or destroy.. How about rescues dem hostages.. Elimination..? IT PUTS THE IED ON THE CACHE OR IT GETS THE FAL AGAIN!! All I asked Santa for Christmas was a no respawn game mode. He was a bit confused but said he will see what he could do!
So can we get any kind of timeline or date maybe some info anything really at all about the next update? How about even a ballpark? January? February? 2019? Lol. Console? XboxOneX? I still open this forum up everyday hoping to see something exciting yet only see the same tired old stuff. Just wanted to throw that out there! Anyways if anyone at all has heard anything I’m sure lots would love to hear!! Even speculation? I did read something from a moderators post somewhere not to long ago saying there is discussion going on lol but any chance on a little more info than that? I was really hoping we would be kept in the loop at least a bit more than we have been thus far. But.. she be what she be.. Game On!
Can you please bring back Ambush? Pretty please was my favourite game mode and I just really want to play Ambush for SandStorm! So once more please just give me Ambush I’m begging. I would be one very happy camper
@max80 Well maybe that’s your opinion it is to me it can wreck the game or be gamebreaking therefore “technical”. The general feedback section obviously is going to get less attention than the technical thread so I post the things that are most important to me or that I feel need serious attention to the technical side. I also have posts in the general feedback section as well I post a lot because I really want this game to turn out well I have been playing insurgency for a very long time and the game means a lot to me. But hey thanks for your input though!
@thehappybub And by the by you should have put “YOU” don’t want OHK!
@jensiii Right because telling me I’m obviously awful at the game because my k/d ratio isn’t amazing and I can’t aim because I pointed out that there are obvious issues with the hit reg are some seriously valid points.. Please get off Benz dick or don’t I really don’t care but either way I’ve heard enough from you and read enough of your one sided Benz loving comments as well.. It’s not a matter of hurt feelings the guy trolls TTK threads only and doesn’t offer any real value to the game just scared they may actually lower TTK? Sad either way I’m sure they won’t so no need to worry and no need to comment as I will not comment to you anymore just as I did with Benz.. Give your head a shake.. Move along please..
I really don’t care that much about competitive I just want Ambush back. Was by far my fav mode and I just want to play it with lots of people not 5vs5 just some good ol Ambush action! #AmbushFTW#VIPlivesmatter. But I would also really welcome any no respawn mode. A search and destroy would be epic as well as hostage rescue don’t really care if it’s stealing from other games I just love and tend to take one life only game modes so much more serious. Well sometime lol.. MO.. Still begging for this to happen devs.
@sandmartin Lol where have you been? . Just teasin I can’t be bothered to find you a link but ya you will get a Tattoo and a one time credit boost that accounts for 50% of your total earned cosmetic credits accumulated up until December 12th! This is my understanding someone please correct me if I am wrong or have missed something. Have yourself a wonderful day friend!
@lordsiggi Well once again they are a smaller team and I do believe they are trying it’s just difficult and I said this all before but it’s going to take some time. I have this sneaky suspicion that while they are working on optimizing the game and fixing bugs they are more than likely still going back to the drawing board and trying to decide on how and what to change to make the game successful because let’s face it while I do believe the dev team actually cares about making a game that is fun and of quality they also want to make a game that is going to sell. So at this point I imagine they are discussing ways to please both the veteran crowd and a new player base which as anyone can agree is tough to do! That being said I will support them either way because I truly loved their Source version and just the modern era altogether. I am a little tired of ww2 and futuristic stuff just isn’t my cup of tea in terms of FPS’s. I just last night bought a second copy of Insurgency SS on my second steam account on my laptop mostly just to support the devs and throw a little more money their way..! At the end of the day I do hope it succeeds.
