@suade There used to be a bit more communication in the beta days but it still wasn’t a ton mostly just the mods were a little more vocal. That had all dried up for the most part although I have been replied to and seen a few replies from a few mods as of recent so it seems to have picked up even if just a little. I have been told on several occasions that the devs read everything put in these forums I can not state that this is actually true but all I can say is if it has been posted especially more than once than either they have read it and they don’t see it working in the game or they may try to fit it in at some point in time that is all I can tell you but hey keep posting and making new topics if you want them seen. I suggest Insurgency>General Discussion for suggestions and ideas and >Technical Feedback for issues/problems. Hope that was any help!

@tooth-decay I hear that and I don’t disagree with a thing you said there. Occupy was just my fav game mode with respawns and Ambush my fav without. Occupy in my mind would just give that feel again of tighter play and combat (despite the larger maps) that I sometimes miss from the first INs as I only played push every now and then and usually only on one server that had a max player count of 40-48 people I don’t remember which number it was (it did exist lol). Ambush is by far my most played mode as I just tend to take game modes with no repsawns much more serious regardless of the fact im just playing for fun. That being said I had one or two servers in my favourites that at least quite often played Occupy which I found much more intense than push for the simple fact it felt much less spread out at times. A new game mode would be nice though but unfortunately for me and the direction they seem to be going I prefer the tighter play of smaller maps and Sandstorms are quite large. You obviously get that tight CQB sometimes from push in SS but also much more running sim than INs:S. I have been adjusting and I’ve had some fun but obviously getting quite sick of push and Comp is a complete joke to me for reason I have expressed in other posts and will not revisit now...

Just wondering if maybe possibly hopefully a Mod/Dev would be so kind as to share a little info on if there is any possibility we may see the return of game modes “Ambush” and “Occupy”... Would absolutely love to see these and once again just wondering if anyone has even the slightest info on wether or not these may find their way into the game. Much appreciated! #VIPLIVESMATTER

I think reflective damage should be off all together. It is stupid and unrealistic in a game they boast as being a realistic highly lethal video game yet add “COD” features like this that totally take away from the immersion. Hey I want people who abuse the system and teamkill for no good reason to be punished with a good system in place for that as much as the next guy but im just saying reflective damage is stupid as hell. When I shoot a teammate by accident (happens very rarely) I always apologize and feel bad about it but if the damage is returned upon me it pisses me right off and makes me want to quit the match because that’s extremely silly and unrealistic in a game that is supposed to be such. I would also like to add that if a teammate shoots me by accident I do not get mad unless it’s obviously not a mistake but I do at least expect an apology. Only takes a second... Otherwise DEVS remove the “realistic” and “highly lethal” part of the games headline? Pretense? or what ever lol because we are and have been sadly stepping quite far away a from this. Im speaking in terms of a slightly less TTK then Ins source then things like less bullet damage to teammates (this one bothers me much less) but then we get to the addition of Reflective Damage and some people wanting FF to be removed all together (god forbid) etc... Just MO.

@chaoswillrise I will just say I agree with most of what you have said. Don’t care about the women part... Just wanted to say though in regards to smaller CQB maps this is why I have suggested they bring back the game mode “OCCUPY”. If you do not know what this is do a little research on it. It’s a nice little game mode from the older Insurgency where two teams fight to hold one Obj... so if placed in a tight quarters part of all the maps it will definitely give you the feeling your looking for. I for one loved this game mode being my favourite out of respawnable game modes. So pass it along lol we need occupy back.

@mlb7 I would rather be put in a doomed match in progress than see this message which I have more than once (no matches available).

@paridonian First of all you did recommend the possibility of getting rid of that “area” all together and 3000-4000 players? (Do not know the actual numbers that’s what I see) at peak times is not by any means a lot of players you are sadly mistaken and people complain steadily that there are not enough people playing this game. People also complain they do not want to be put into matches in progress. While I understand that I have had my search for competitive and versus matches come up completely empty handed telling me there are no available matches. I would much rather be put in a match in progress then no match at all... So if and when there is a larger player base fine. Until then this is a silly feature for them to implement.

Next the fact that you have never seen a helicopter shot down or are incapable of doing so yourself says a lot about the lack of either A. Your play time or B. Your skill... I’m going to guess a little of both judging by just how you describe the games issues and your suggestions (invisible walls lol). I have on very many occasions seen people call in choppers and the chopper does absolutely nothing and leaves early (very fast lol) because the commander called it into an area where everyone is either inside a building or most enemies (chopper targets) are currently dead waiting to spawn which would be bad timing and or placement of helicopter on the commanders part. Happens often enough.

So I do not need the helicopter to get kills I do just fine without it 😉 but once again I have seen several failed attempts at a heli support call just as I have seen many successful and also quite a few choppers shot down. I will also add it is pretty rare that I die from helicopters not saying it doesn’t happen and it can be frustrating but you receive a fair warning that one is inbound and they are usually pretty avoidable unless you are laying in the middle of a wide open field to which even then I have survived multiple heli attacks out in the open. Maybe I’m lucky 😆.

Regardless saying my points are not valid? Lmao what you consider as suggestions, problems and or things in need of fixing is to me quite scary in general and make me fear for the success and longevity of this game as well as just the general type of crowd that is being drawn in. It’s not about giving the commander points for something the “pc” did lol the commander still had quite a bit to do with it as well as the observer. You sound like you might be a little bit butt hurt that you probably in actuality don’t use the commander role very well... Just being honest. Either way I hope for the games sake they don’t listen to your suggestions and you either learn to adapt or move along? Maybe give Day Of Infamy a try? Lol either way that is all I will say on the matter you take care now!

@skillet There needs to be more players first I’m thinking!

I want to see Insurgency go fixed! Lol just sayin...

@kean_1 Lol no doubt. But hey thanks I would really appreciate that! 😁

@paridonian 1-Not enough people playing currently...
2-Not enough people playing currently...
3-There are very important and for the most part obvious reasons these “areas” exist and are crucial to balance. Not saying they couldn’t use a little tweak as some are a tad tight but important nonetheless.
4-The heli’s effectiveness completely depends on both teams as the CMDR has to chooose where and when (which is also why he deserves the credit via kills and score) and the other team can quite simply shoot the heli down. It’s not that hard but if your team isn’t capable of defending against the heli then they should not benefit from this and should be punished (one well placed heli can change the tide - one well placed rocket can end that heli just as quick as it came...). This isn’t COD or BF and there is no room for player control of the heli’s nor should there be.
5?-I’m sure at some point after they have the game running to their intended potential they will start to consider adding a few more things such as face paint/masks etc...

Please do not take anything that I have written here as insult to you as this was not my intention I just whole heartedly disagree with most of your points! Lol

Juuuust wondering... If you guys were trying to hit the 14th for the update but ran into some issues any chance maybe possibly you have a new target date?? Did you specify one and I missed it? Also how come the only reason I heard about the fact that you guys intended to patch on the 14th was through a non dev/mod person here in the community? I forgot about Twitter and also don’t have an account but why wouldn’t you yourselves or the mods post this here for all to see you know in these here forums where quite a few people are asking for more communication and what not...? Just curious not trying to be anything else! I check this forum at a minimum of once a day. Twitter etc... not so much...
