  1. New system of dynamic storage cells allocation

    Something is definitely wrong than. Running Customs solo i get 13 to 15 kills average on Customs without going to the Dorms. If you are clearing shoreline you should be getting more kills than that since that map spawns way more than 8 scavs total. Either you are rushing and not letting the scavs spawn over time or your only running a part of the map.
  2. The Reap IR Thermal Scope - Coming to Tarkov

    @Reaper204 I am with you on that one. When i mentioned tha Thermals are OP in real life was a direct mention to what one of the other guys said. I have used thermals in real life as well and i know that they can be countered and are not the 'Be all, End all' end of the world some people are making it out to be. There are ways to counter it and it can't see through solid objects. Even Glass. Those people simply don't understand what this game is about and who it is aimed at. They are in for a big surprise once things start changing into what it was always announced as by the DEVs. lol But since there is no talking sense into someone who refuses to listen, i think i'll just stop saying anything. Time will show them what EFT really is about.
  3. The Reap IR Thermal Scope - Coming to Tarkov

    What are you even on about? Where did i say i 'Know' where you are coming from or accused you of being one of the ones who would leave the game? I said i 'Understand' (defined as 'perceive the intended meaning of') where you are coming from due to your posts so far and my own experience with the negative view of thermals in other games. I suggest that before you accuse others of not paying attention that you make sure you are not doing that yourself. Just to be clear i am not against making it limited. What i am against is the automatic assumption that just because other games couldn't make it work that it automatically means it can't work in EFT. In my opinion that is unfounded and baseless. I Am one of those people that bought this game for the Hardcore and Milsim aspect and i am perfectly fine with Thermals. Even in Arma the only reason server owners removed them was because the people complaining outnumbered the amount of people that didn't. This is not a bad thing, but is also a definition of a Niche (denoting or relating to products, services, or interests that appeal to a small, specialized section of the population), which is the target audience of this game. And like me i know of many others. At the end of the day Thermals are OP, yes. But they do not make you impervious, invisible or grant you godlike skill. This is the part that people don't understand. Thermals further cement the hardcore nature of this game. They weren't impossible to get around in Arma and they won't be impossible to get around in EFT. @Beinhard That is the problem right there. You think the current Meta of the game is the same as the intended meta of the finished game. It is not. Right now it is UNFINISHED (ie, BETA) and just because they are adding thermals doesn't mean they won't add something to help counter them later on. This is the crux of the issue. You are basing the finished product on fears acquired from playing a test build that DOESN'T represent it. Not only that you are comparing 2 different development teams, and 2 games on different stages. How can you compare a finished game to a game with 40% of the content still missing? In real life Thermals are OP, true, but they can be countered so based on this whole 'realism' idea the DEVs stand behind and you seem to not understand, why do you think they are incapable of bringing that same realism to EFT? That is why i say comparing Arma to EFT is not only biased it is illogical. You base your whole opinion on 'People didn't like thermals in Arma, thus they have to room in EFT!' yet we have established that not only are they different games that only share the fact they share SOME of the same target audience. Let's face it. Arma doesn't target the Hardcore Milsim Group exclusively. I have met plenty of casuals playing Arma. But it IS a platform that hardcore Milsim groups use, with mods to enhance realism. I played with some of these groups and you know what? Thermals weren't always an issue. Like i said above. Thermals do not make you an impervious invisible god at this game. You still die just as easy. The counter-play is skill and tactics. And THAT i learned from ARMA.
  4. The Reap IR Thermal Scope - Coming to Tarkov

    @Beinhard & @ZergZwerg81 I understand where you are coming from, but please understand where the DEVs are coming from. They are making the game according to their vision, even if it limits the audience for it. That being said, they do care about their customers, but they won't compromise the vision of their game to cater to each and every one of them. It is our responsibility as customers to make an informed purchase. When i bought i knew there was a chance the game would have things that would go against the common definition of 'Fun', 'Balance' and 'Fair'. This is what was sold to us. You both make large logical mistakes in your comparisons. First of all, EFT isn't finished yet. It says so right at the start of the main menu so citing unfinished features as proof against realism is meant to do do what exactly? Prove it's unfinished? Congratulations on hitting the nail on the head. Secondly, comparing it to other games like ARMA is wrong. They may be similar but EFT is NOT like other games. They are taking a very specific approach that does NOT exist in any other game that i know of. ARMA being one of the ones i know very well. Sure you can compare apples to oranges. They are both fruits after all, and both come from trees so are similar in several aspects, but at the core of it they are not the same. Fact is that there is no basis to an accurate judgement of how thermal scopes will affect the gameplay in EFT, because they have not been implemented yet. Just because other games did it does not mean the experience will be the same. It depends on how these initial tests go and how the DEVs adjust to the proper feedback they are looking for. This is what we are here for anyway, not conjecture and biased fears.
  5. Huge ammount of hacking lately

    Oh Please. An engine is just a tool If you look into Unreal or even Cryengine you will see they are all equally as easy to find hacks for. How good a game engine is depends on the people working with it. Just because Unity is the more beginner friendly engine people assume all the bad games created on it are bad because of the engine and not because the people developing them were the ones at fault.
  6. The Reap IR Thermal Scope - Coming to Tarkov

    It's not meant to be a mainstream game. The DEVs have said so themselves. It targets a very specific subset of players, and those type of players won't leave because of that. They are just delivering what they always promised from the start. Hardcore Realism.
  7. The Reap IR Thermal Scope - Coming to Tarkov

    While i agree with you to an extent, you do know the EFT is not your typical game don't you? There will be balancing, of course, but with a bias towards realism. This game is not aiming to be your normal definition of 'Fun'.
  8. Redesigned Head Gear Slots

    Sure. All you need to do is play the game enough and you will get it eventually.
  9. New system of dynamic storage cells allocation

    This might be YOUR experience, doesn't mean it is the same for all. I watch several streamers and their experience is similar to my own. At least one pilgrim wearing scav every 3 to 5 raids, depending on map. Factory you will rarely find them. Go to Shoreline or Customs and they are more common. I can only speak to the experience i personally have and have seen others have. Please remember that your personal play style will affect your game experience. Either other players are getting the pilgrims before you can, or something else is affecting the rate at which you get them.
  10. Hacker catched on a movie

    The DEVs are not taking manual reports of possible hackers at this point, nor do they allow naming and shaming on this Forum. There is anti-cheat. If anyone is cheating, they will be caught. #Locked.
  11. The Reap IR Thermal Scope - Coming to Tarkov

    Because these can be used in BOTH day and night with no adverse effect from flashlights, is essentially a big scope that highlights everyone else for you against background thus making spoting people really easy and negating any camo that is not hard cover. Yeah, no wonder why it's so expensive.
  12. New Year Event in Escape from Tarkov

    Hype! Cant wait to explore the full map of Shoreline.
  13. New system of dynamic storage cells allocation

    Not for 153s, Guess VEPS and Saigas will have to be enough until you find a Pilgrim. Not like it's impossible. I find Pilgrims every few raids.
  14. New system of dynamic storage cells allocation

    Depending on how it it set up. Long barreled full stock 153? Need a bigger bag. Short barreled or with the short stock? Should fit just fine.
  15. Glock 17 in the process of texturing!

    This is only a thing in Counter Strike. The Glock 18 has semi and full auto modes, but the 17 (the one we are getting) only has semi.
