  1. Willing to upgrade

    Been here from the very beginning, like many after my initial in-deapth research into the Developers was a little apprehensive in parting with my money. I’ve been looking for a game like this for a long time and I think Escape from Tarkov could be it. A complete ULTRA HARDCORE combat game with all the frills, bells, and whistles. I opted for the 'EDGE OF DARKNESS' limited edition, and is the most I have ever paid for a computer game: Early unlock of your digital copy (early access) Guaranteed access to closed beta Bonus equipment at start Huge size of stash (10x60) Additional equipment and resources in stash Unique secured container Large field backpack Even more cash at the start Combat tactical tomahawk Initially good standings with all in-game traders Unique in-game ID Free access to all subsequent DLCs (Season pass) Participated in the original ALPHA and ADVANCED ALPHA now into the CLOSED BETA and ready for the not too distant second part of the latest patch following: Patch During the testing phase, we have had many ups and downs with numerous Bugs and Glitches, the Developers / Programmers / and Anti-Cheat team have worked extremally long hours and IMO have achieved a lot. You will notice many here have formed clans / groups to team up and play together learning the tactical requirements to survive in the game. An unofficial Discord is available for communication purposes for those who enjoy communication whilst gaming. I will admit on several occasions I have become frustrated with the lack of communication between the Forum members and the Developers but it is improving on a daily basis and regular updates on progress are published. The servers are being worked on daily with noticeable improvements on lag and desync. Would I recommend upgrading? YES, I want this game to be a success to continue moving forward with the in-game development / improvements and future DLC’s It’s only with the members support here who do have faith in the Developers we will eventually see E.F.T. completed.

    An interesting interview with, Battletstate Games COO Nikita Buyanov.
  3. The Cheater Battle Wages On!

    @Straafe I am not a programmer or software engineer, but do hold a degree in Engineering I have on several occasions been involved in numerous ALPHA / BETA testing for well-known gaming companies for over 20 years. And have managed / moderated on several game TESTING forums. I would imagine most of us here understand the complexity of TESTING a game during its numerous phases programming within the game that frequently does and can go wrong with patches and updates. Those of us that have been here from the beginning can confirm and vouch what has happened during this past year, from initial release of the first ALPHA stage to where we are now. Programming does and will go F.U.B.A.R. with patches and fixes conflicting with previous updates only to be re-written by the programmers. That’s why the next New Patch / UPDATE has been split into two phases, in case something goes catastrophically wrong. You also download and install a game that is in its infancy / ALPHA / BETA TESTING at your own RISK. I like many here also have and use third party software and programmes Installed and running on my system, BUT and I strongly emphasize, I researched the forums and took note of the FACT as the Developers and Anti-Cheat team have stated on numerous occasions. The Anti-Cheat system they are using is in constant development and on a learning curve. Therefore, any genuine third-party software / programmes I have / had on my system I thought may cause problems and I do not need immediately, I’ve uninstalled to be on the safe side until TESTING is complete. Once the game is officially released I will of course reinstall them if I find I am banned I then have a genuine reason to appeal. I would expect BATTLE STATE GAMES to review and honour my appeal if I can list / 100 percent prove that the third-party software I use / installed on my system gives me no unfair advantage over others in-game.

    If you have the E.O.D. edition any of the traders will sell you one of these at a price; Downside is whilst still in the testing phase will stop and attempt to cock its leg and piss on a tree. LS3 Robotic Pack Mule Field Testing by US Military
  5. The Cheater Battle Wages On!

    A simple search on the web: Cheat Engine, commonly abbreviated as CE, is an open source memory scanner/hex editor/debugger created by Eric Heijnen ("Dark Byte") for the Windows operating system. Cheat Engine is mostly used for cheating in computer games, and is sometimes modified and recompiled to evade detection. The Definition of cheat English Oxford Dictionaries: Definition of cheat - act dishonestly or unfairly in order to gain an advantage, avoid (something undesirable) by luck or skill. So if I am missing something here can someone enlighten me

    I’m no Expert in these matters as a matter of fact Experts do not exist: Split the word Expert into two syllables EX & Spert an Ex is a has been and a Spert is a drip under pressure. Common sense should I would have thought been used in the first instance, if when testing a game in the ALPHA / CLOSED BETA stage and the information on the FORUMS is: The ANTI-CHEAT team have and are developing an independent algorithm that will and has been used very successfully to catch and BAN. HACKERS / CHEATS and or any other programme considered / used to gain an advantage. If you’re a member here on the forums and have purchased the game and intend to play on the servers wherever you are located be it NORTH SOUTH EAST or WEST. Would if you have any software or any other type of programme running in the background on your system that’s not a Hack or Cheat BUT the ANTI-CHEAT algorithm may consider it as such and BAN you. Would it not be sensible to SWITCH IT OFF before gaming?
  7. The Cheater Battle Wages On!

    It’s still happening on the servers the HACKERS / CHEATS are just as active: Two HACKERS on two separate maps Woods and Shoreline within the first 5 minutes of joining as a four-man team this evening 15.09.2017 . Caught both the players’ names and checked on PBBans: One has 14 previous bans for other games and the other 16 bans for the same games.
  8. The Cheater Battle Wages On!

    I really like the idea of there being an indicator in the top right corner of your screen each time a HACKER / CHEATER is caught and BANNED from E.F.T. via the Anti-Cheat system. No reason necessary just a short line of text. XXXXXX Has been Banned for HACKING / CHEATING. That would really get the HACKERS / CHEATERS bums tweaking No idea or reason why, how will they explain that to their HACK / CHEAT suppliers.
  9. The Cheater Battle Wages On!

    The Anti-Cheat team are working constantly on the algorithm for their independent Anti-Cheat system and I fully understand the process whilst we are still in the Closed Beta stage. The Cheaters / Hackers are reviewed on a one to one basis before a group BAN wave is implemented and its time consuming. Understandably those who have spent long hours grinding away to improve their stashes, weapons and levels are when a HACKER / CHEAT with no skill sets one shots them, get very frustrated and start to lose interest. I have noted how the player base has reduced considerably and less and less members are visiting the forums for information. The report system needs to be implemented sooner rather than later with the facility to upload written / video evidence with as much important information as possible even if it’s just to compile a member report list to be reviewed at a later date. Then a least the Hardcore members who have stood by the Developers and Battle State Games can vent their frustrations by submitting a report. I also understand there will be those who submit malicious reports, they can be weeded out by the Anti-Cheat team and binned. Please stop using the excuse its DESYNC those of us who have gamed for longer than they care to remember know instinctively when a HACKER / CHEAT is on the server and DESYNC does not cause a group of 5 players to be shot and killed one after the other in less than 5-10 seconds.
  10. A trading system outside of raids?

    @Natalino Thanks for the clarification just wanted to be sure
  11. A trading system outside of raids?

    Re the reply from Natalino on the EFT forums: There will be more features to the trading such as the flea market and auctions. There will also be a clan common stash for to use it as gear exchange so that is one thing to look forward to. If you mean currently, this is not available, yet. I hope this will also include groups such as ourselves (OAPA) and others as we are not an official Clan. Or will we be excluded? Many of our mature players here in the forums do Group up on discord and do not really consider themselves as members of a clan but likeminded people who enjoy associating / gaming with the none screamers and kiddies.

    Listening to this hitting the tin roof, and trying to navigate around Factory you would need to carry several clean pairs of underpants in your secure container.
  13. 5-Man Teams

    Of all the occasions, I was in combat in Oman and engaging the enemy and being numerically outnumbered did we call a halt to the engagement and ask the other guys to send some of theirs back home so it would be equal numbers on both sides because it wasn’t fair, that they had the advantage. Watch and learn

    @luftkorps The simplest explanation I can give you: Military tactics: Are the science and art of organizing a military force, and the techniques for combining and using weapons and military units to engage and defeat an enemy in battle.
