    We need Kill Cam

    Im pretty sure it was one of the features they had planned for the game as a concept. And If its a replay feature, it should and probably would be from your own perspective only as in the teaser. Ive got nothing against that, totally okay and doable already with external recording software. In 2015 BSG had also planned a 3rd person camera and drivable vehicles to the game, so I wouldnt be surprised even if this feature is scrapped entirely. I think we wouldve heard sth about it by now, as it, according to the teaser, was working in 2015 already. No point in discussing as you dont have any well-argumented points to add? If thats the case, Im astonished by how you do the wise thing and dont discuss this anymore!

    Read what I wrote before this. Surely, you can suggest all you want, but as I said, if youd know what kind of game your testing and what the vision for EFT is, youd be reasonable with your suggestions. I never said that bad suggestions should be prohibited or sth, but I do hope that Nikita stays true to his vision and looks past those bad suggestions, even if the majority would want them. I dont think Im unique, I think EFT is unique. I think EFT is the snowflake. I know Im in the category of gamers EFT is supposed to be designed for, so thats why I write so passionately about certain features. Its your own poor conversation skills, when you make this matter about me or you. This is still not about me or you. No matter how much you want to go in to the personal level, it doesnt change the reality. I find it super ironic that youre talking about snowflakes! Funny guy!

    The current state of the game is not a reason to radically change the game in to sth that its not. Sth that BSG doesnt want to create. If you argue that the replays could be useful for the devs, then Kill Cam could be implemented so, that you only report but wont get to see anything. So youre fine with that kind of mechanic? As long as no player gets to see how his enemy killed him, Im fine with the devs getting more intel. Tho I know that if they need video feedback of sth, they ask for it, and most likely they wouldve added a beta only Kill Cam already, if they really needed one. Its a small studio so its not like they can just code a Kill Cam with reporting mechanics to the game in a weekend, so this is a choice theyve made. I never said I get to decide, Im mostly just relaying information Ive managed to gather by doing these extraordinary things like, for example: following the development of a game Im exited about, listening to podcasts from developers, watching what they answer in Q&A's or here in the forum, in SOME etc. Personally, IMO, people who agree to beta test a game should follow the development atleast a little bit, so they can actually be useful and give feedback on whats getting better and if sth is worse. That way they would also understand what kind of game they are testing and what kind of suggestions are reasonable and what are not. Just sayin'. This Kill Cam thing, its the only matter where I had to personally contact someone to get peace of mind. I dont want this game to be ruined bc of casual players who want to change the game, so I asked someone who I thought should know. I got the answer I wanted so I might as well spread that information to you guys. Im actually happy to do that and as long as the conversation remains at least semi-civil, Ill try to explain why people shouldnt even want such a feature in this game. I havent been that succesful yet, but I think its bc a certain demographic wants features like Kill Cam and this group either doesnt want to, or cant understand why Kill Cam isnt good for EFT.

    Im the snowflake when I try to explain to you why such a mechanic is NOT in, or coming to the game, when youre the one who wants to change the game to fit your own needs and requirements? I dont think you understand the definition of a special snowflake! Youre the one asking for change, bc sth is too hard and you want it to be easier, you want to be able to learn with less effort. You want to change a HC game to sth much more casual, and IM the snowflake!? Hahahaha this was the funniest joke Ive heard today! You should do some stand-up comedy or sth! On a serious note, once again, this is not about me or you, or some different playstyles. This is about what makes EFT truly unique and awesome and why it should stay like that. Everyone can play the game just like they want to. Its easy to get mad when you lack the capabilities to understand what someone is saying to you. Maybe try to work on your reading comprehension and anger management skills? You can hope all you want but its not gonna happen. And Im so very glad it wont. If Kill Cam would be implemented, the core audience, for whom the game is designed for would disappear. As I said, theres been some very disappointing choices made by BSG, to please the crowds. Luckily not that many yet and the core vision has remained. BSG have said (the man Nikita himself if I remember correctly) that the game wont cater to the majority, quite the opposite, its meant to be HC and unforgiving, simulation like even. "A niche game for a niche audience" now made popular by youtubers, so all kinds of people try to play it, then when theyre not as good as they thought they would be, they want the game to be changed instead of actually climbing up the steep and tall learning curve. Ridiculous stuff, the keyword snowflake can be used in this conversation, but not how you would like to! Take a look in the mirror Brusko.

    Read above on why problems are not a reason for Kill Cam. If you cant comprehend how Ive explained what someone can possibly learn, with like 10 different examples in this thread, you have some serious reading comprehension issues. How about you read the thread youre posting in, before posting?
  6. p4nnus

    We need Kill Cam

    This game is not made for the majority. EFT is a hardcore survival game, a niche game for a niche audience. (These are not my words BTW) It doesnt matter if it feels off. This is not about camping or bushes, its about every single thing you do before and during a kill, is shown. And no, it doesnt matter if its only 5s or 10s, it will still give valuable info and damage the learning curve. The fact that Kill Cam would teach people positions when they dont deserve it, is only one of the things wrong with it. As I said, the one who dies doesnt deserve to SEE anything from anyone elses perspective. Their perspective is for themselves to see and themselves only. With time youll recognize possible desync or some bugs that can cause deaths, but youre not gonna be able to see it after you die. What youre saying isnt a reason for Kill Cam. As the development continues, EFT will surely become more stable and consistent, so it will be easier to notice possible weird stuff. Problems with the game, problems with hackers etc are not a reason to implement a feature to the game thats against everything the game wants to stand for. Yeah, its not planned = not gonna happen. I can promise you this. If you watch Nikita talk about what he wants to do with EFT, I think youre gonna agree that he is not gonna change his vision. A game like this cant be hardcore if it has Kill Cam. Therefore yes, it destroys the HC aspect, or in other words, makes EFT way more casual. EFT has already been made easier than it used to be, i.e. with trader quests. (The timed quests were removed, bc they were supposedly too hard). Thats a bad sign IMO, but I still know that theyre not gonna make EFT in to some casual shooter, as thats not what made the game popular in the first place.

    What a pathetic way of arguing, tells a lot about you. This isnt about me or you, this is about you guys trying to make this unique game like every other casual shooter with no learning curve. You guys should play sth else, maybe some casual shooter with Kill Cam and minimap and respawning? Kill Cam has no place in this game, accept it, or play sth else. Adapt to the game, dont make the game adapt to you.

    We need Kill Cam

    Dying in this game is a failure. You failed if you died. The extent to how big of a failure it is might vary, but you failed. When you die, you dont deserve to know the reason, because you failed. This is a hardcore game and it punishes you with permadeath for that failure, you lose your stuff but you also dont exist in that raid anymore = its over for you. No after death info that reveals anything is earned by dying. Its also a part of the learning curve, that you have to actually play to learn, theres no hand-holding. The player who outplayed you, deserves to have his maneuvers hidden, simply bc he won and youre dead. You dont deserve to know how you were outplayed, bc you lost. This is really simple. Ofc it would be for everyone, but the feature would single-handedly lower the learning curve so much, that it has no place in a game like this. This has already been confirmed by a BSG crew member, so yeah you guys can ask for it but its not gonna happen. Its against the spirit of this game, everything that EFT stands for. The point about AC was that it is not needed. So its not an argument for adding Kill Cam. It could help, but if it would be used for AC purposes, it shouldnt destroy the HC aspect of the game for everyone. There cant be a feature that punishes regular, good players, just bc the feature helps in catching hackers. Atleast not a feature like this.

    How Many Bullets and gernades

    Exactly 1 bullet to the face, but its better to double tap in case the enemy has a face shield etc. Learn to shoot headshots and you will do well with any weapon. A single well placed grenade kills anyone that is closer than 2m from it. If youre lucky, even from 3-5m.
  10. p4nnus

    We need Kill Cam

    When I asked a BSG crew member to confirm that this casual feature is not coming to their HC survival game (!) he told me that it wont be coming to the game as its unfair and unrealistic. Ive explained above, on many occasions and different examples, why its so. Then you should read what Ive argued for instance. Even after a raid the Kill Cam is unfair against your killer and you shouldnt get the information, especially to learn and not for AC purposes either. BSG is developing an anticheat that doesnt require video feed, so Kill Cam is not needed for that.
  11. p4nnus

    There are almost no hackers.

    Ginno games had 60 devs in 2015 already, so probably even more after launch. Cant find the exact number they have now, but BSG has like under 20 devs AFAIK. So what do you base your information on? Assuming again? Its a pretty big difference anyways and Bluehole has A LOT more money too. If you wouldve followed the devs and what they say about AC, youd know that theyve said that an external AC is possible and might be implemented, on top of the one they are developing themselves. They need to do an automatic AC themselves too, so that the system wont rely on just some external AC, like EAC for example. Games that have relied to external ACs like that, havent been succesful at getting rid of even the most cheaters.. Im speaking of games Ive played now and my personal experience. Anyways, the devs know what to do and when, way better than you do. Ofc we as a community need to give suggestions etc, but BSG is the one to decide. We as beta testers cant make demands. Users can provide useful information, but as you show with your example, theres gonna be many situations where theres a thousand possibilities on what couldve happen with totally fair game, I mean come on, you ran across the yard with no cover and you knew that you were spotted in the resort and that there was a possibility(I dont care if its close to 0, when its not 0) that there was someone inside or pushing inside. Even if its totally possible that some situation was a fair play, people will flood the report system in frustration with false reports, just like you did here. Thats the problem with what youre doing and what the OP originally posted about. BSG doesnt even officially take reports here in the forums, but people flood this place nevertheless, with some real cases too, yes, but mostly false reports. Thats the point, theres way less hackers than people say there are, people hackusate way too quickly when things like desync and some other bugs, glitches and outplaying can make it seem like theres hax. This is the point, in case you lost it in these essays. Yeah, I dont think youre that familiar with these systems, if you think that a forum system (most probably some ready template with all the features) is the same as doing a reporting system that needs coding. Its a much more time consuming process than to set up a forum. You or I could set up a forum like this in under 30mins. And no, Im still not against the report button, Im simply using you as an example to prove OPs and my point. Yes, taking things out of their context, your favourite.. wait, are you saying you dont like this? To be serious you said theres a possibility of sth, I used a different word, the context is the same. I referred to one of the videos you posted, the tone was sth like that if the quote wasnt direct. The evidence is you being possibly killed by this dude who was inside, or saw/heard you there. Or then it was someone else, whom killed you after you conveniently GAVE UP and started running like a headless chicken. Thats way more likely than a hacker killing you AND actually struggling to do so, in the beginning. In summarum: we both know theres a 100 ways you couldve been seen and heard and spotted with totally fair game. You admitted that there couldve been someone inside. Youre calling others noobs and you didnt even know about the bullet whizzing bug, I get that almost every raid.. werent you supposed to be very experienced? And tbh the details dont even matter that much. You have nothing to show that it actually was a hacker, you can only show us how you dont understand how you got killed. I never said I could prove its not one, 100%, but I said I can reason in many different ways, how its most probably not. You can try to say there there was almost a 0% possibility that sth didnt happen, but as I said, neither of us can know this. Theres too many things here we cant know and that can mean that its probably a fair case. Theres no real indicators of hacking here, you understand? You clearly see them everywhere but your reasoning isnt... well.. reasonable. Calling me a noob wont change the fact that Ive played for over a year now and it wont change the fact that Ive ran in to a hacker once during that time. And in every patch Ive reached, or almost reached lvl 40 as well. Theres also many other players here too, with the same perspective and sentiment. That still means you dont have any proof. You GAVE UP, so you decided your fate before it even unfolded. I bet youre an easy kill if you give up that easily. You hear a bullet whizz bug and then give up and die hahahh! Pretty wicked! And when you report someone, without the kind of system you long for, its your responsibility to prove it, why wouldnt it be here in the forums? You dont need a thesis for it, but you need sth else than gameplay vid of yourself running in the middle of the resort yard and getting rekt bc of that! Why its the most ridiculous case: no proof of actual hacking, no real indicators of probable hacking even + stupid play and still hackusating. I dont need to prove it in any other way, all the proof is out there, you posted it yourself. Trying to me make prove the case for you only underlines how strong it is. (Very weak if you didnt comprehend) As I said, Im fine with it. We dont have to make this about our gamestyles, theres enough of discussion without that. Its not extremely hard to "decorate" what happens in your video, as Ive reasoned. You on the other hand, still just assume things. You even admitted it yourself, dont try to take it back. I dont know why youre trying to focus on this one door detail. It really doesnt matter and you already admitted that there couldve been someone else inside. If youre trying to say that Im a hacker, then thats pretty low and pathetic of you. It only tells how you have to resort to this kind of thing, bc its the only thing left for you to say. Theres nothing you can do to prove your points, you cant reason this thing, only assume. So again, Im not surprised.. this conversation is not contributing to the discussion anymore, its just walls of text with nothing new. I believe an emissary any day before your hackusations without proof. And for the last time: nobody is saying there arent hackers in the game. Your reading comprehensions skills are just as good as how good you were in that video of yours. Now, zieft, you can hackusate all you want and youre just proving OP correct, especially with such a horrible example. You already got one ban so dont take another one by resorting to name calling etc. I know it must be frustrating to know that you got rekt and your feeble tries of hackusating are shot down in flames. Im gonna show you example now on what we should do next: end this conversation. Unless you have nothing actually new to add, you shouldnt add anything. Enjoy your hackusation bubble!

    There are almost no hackers.

    Okay well Im not really able to debate this as I dont know the mechanics that well, I was just relaying information that I got from an emissary.
  13. p4nnus

    There are almost no hackers.

    A glitch and hax (hacks, scripts, external cheat software) are two different things. Or are you saying that somebody can obtain god mode by noclip-hack? Im a little confused.
  14. p4nnus

    There are almost no hackers.

    CSGO and PUBG try to be competitive games. Like Esports competitive. They dont compare to EFT. Theyre done with a massive budget and dev teams many times larger than BSG. EFT is also done with Unity, which is a much less used engine in FPS games. Also, I know that atleast CSGO had VAC before you could report a player and probably PUBG too had AC before player reporting, because UE4 had AC tools ready before PUBG was released. A report button could be good, but comparing a forum to an anticheat is far fetched and stupid. Different people handle forums, people with no expertise in AC stuff. BSG needs to first develop an anticheat that can catch people automatically, dont you agree? And thats what theyre doing atm. We cant be trusting player reports, just like we can see with your example. First you argued that no one couldnt have been there, then you admitted that someone couldve been there: "I have to admit, there are two respawn positions which are nearer than the positon where I respawned from the resort, there would be a small chance that a guy had already inside." So now Im really confused, youre saying that you are familiar with the spawns but then you claim one thing and later admit another. Anyways, the first whizzes, thats the sound bug, the second shooting at the chopper, thats not even at you IMO, probably a hatchling or scav being shot at, possibly even by a different dude. Clearly shooting at a totally different room than where you were in, maybe even different floor, the impacts did not come close to you. The door rendering thing was my point if I wouldve believed what you assumed with the other vid; that the player is shooting at you.. I even gave you the benefit of doubt! Anyways, he couldve seen you from around the chopper, i.e. thru unrendered doors when you ran there. The case IS the most ridiculous one Ive seen! You literally just assume things and you have no proof, but then you demand proof from others, like the hypocrite you are. As I said, Im just reasoning things. You on the other hand ask questions like this in the video: "How near he could spawn from me and why didnt he shoot me outside?", so when sth didnt go as you thought it would/ as what fits your narrative = its hax. What I mean by the fact that I cant be 100%, is that I am not a all-knowing god, just as I told you in the last post. Reading comprehension, can you do it? I can never prove this one way or another, but neither can you. And after all, youre the one who hackusated here, Im just showing people how stupid hackusating can be and youve been a perfect example. Its kinda funny that I have to tell this to you separately to make it clear..but Im not surprised at this point anymore! I wasnt critiquing your playstyle (quicklooting) directly, tho I can tell you that I think thats a way to go for someone whos afraid to risk and just wants to gain. (atleast youre not running with a hatchet, so good for you!) If youre so high leveled, Im kinda wondering why you need to do raids like that. Im only 35 and Ive done zero "quickloot" raids. But people play differently and Im totally fine with that, so back on topic: what you did after someone opened fire was stupid. After that, you played the situation out really poorly. Like a headless chicken and shot before ever spotting your shooter, while having time and space to maneuver = very bad play. Door or jump, it doesnt matter, you already admitted that there couldve been someone else inside. Im not gonna go investigate this in a raid, thats your job. Again, youre the one making the hackusations so youre the one with the responsibility to prove it. I never said I know nothing about hacks, its neat how you take some words and sentences totally out of context, but even at that, you fail. I said that Im not gonna study EFT hax thoroughly, do you understand this sentence? Seems like I do know more about them than you do, if you think GOD mode is obtainable via hax. Damage system is server side = GOD mode is not possible. I already said this too, Im starting to get the feeling that your abilities to a) read b) comprehend c) think are severely underdeveloped, so this conversation is making less and less sense. If you read this forum frequently, youll see that theres A LOT of hackusating going on. Somebody posts a sad story how he 100% died to a hacker and then theres other sad people telling how they also die to hackers all the time. Nobody knows the real numbers but go ahead, assume things, seems like youre really good at that atleast! Yeah, Ive never been 100% sure as I said, but theres one case where Im pretty sure, atleast 50-50. For the fifth time, nobody is saying there arent undetected cheaters out there. The point is that theres way more false reports, false hackusations, than correct ones. Now Im just repeating things and you keep assuming and believing in your own narrative, while contradicting yourself, so this conversation is becoming pretty stale. Have you got anything new to add? Any actual proof perhaps?
  15. p4nnus

    There are almost no hackers.

    Oh yeah actually, I did hear about a new glitch that makes you invincible. Havent encountered that and dont know anything bout that tho, so I didnt think of it. Youre correct, it might be that. Yeah well, its not everyone for sure, you cant speak for everyone. And again, bad desync can make people fly and noclip in your screen, even at lightspeed velocities. Ive never encountered a confirmed hacker, only encountered a possible ESP user, but Im pretty much 50-50 on it. And this one possible encounter during a year of raiding. Theres other people here too, saying the exact same, including OP. Just like some other people have claimed here too, Ive played a lot of FPS games, mostly HC and simulation sorts, so I think I have a pretty good idea on what to look for.
