    Do you do this too?

    Smoke, is that you? Kappa. All joking aside, helping out beginner players is a great way to welcome them into the brutal and sometimes unforgiving world of Tarkov. I wish I could do this more often, but I usually play in a squad which makes it harder to bound with solo low level players, since some of my squadmates are very trigger happy and are adept of the "shoot first, ask later" mindset.
  2. You should never sell gear to Peacekeeper. Instead, disassemble all weapons and sell the attachments to Skier and whatever he doesn´t buy, sell to Mechanic. And, if you want to get some dollars, just buy them from Peacekeeper. Using this method you can level up 3 traders at once and ALSO get the most money from all the sales, since Skier is the one who pays the higher price on attachments, body armor, helmets, vests and bags. My advice to you is play a lot of offline raids in order to get your way around the map and know all the extraction points. Here´s a Customs map that might help you out. The green dots are both scav and PMC extractions, but bear in mind that, as a PMC, you can only extract on Crossroads, Smuggler´s Boat (if the campfire is lit), ZB 10-11, ZB 10-12 (if the spotlight is on), Old Gas Station (if the flare is on) and RUAF Roadblock (if the spotlight is on). To check which extraction you must go to, press the key "O" twice and the available extractions should appear on the top right corner of your screen. Oh, and always have some gear on. A pistol at least. Your survival chances will increase a lot if you enter an online map holding a gun, don´t be afraid of losing gear, since you have your scav available every ten minutes so you can colleact some easy loot and make some money.

    Mosin Nagant rebalance

    Quick question: do you want a realistic game or a balanced game? A 7.62x54R round will DESTROY pretty much anything in real life, but I´m guessing you want to balance it so you can run around like an invincible headless chicken that can´t be killed? GG mate, go play COD.

    Mosin Nagant rebalance

    I don´t think it´s a matter of gambling. If a naked player using a powerful rifle ends up killing me, he truly deserves my gear. After all, he´s not wearing any kind of protection and managed to kill a kitted player, so that means I was unable to land a single shot on him. If that happens, GG. He played well and I´ve got no problem with it whatsoever. IMO this kind of situation will not happen as often as you may think, since a naked player can be easily killed with 2 or 3 shots.

    Mosin Nagant rebalance

    I bought the game a year ago, went through 3 or 4 wipes already. Currently I´m level 33 and and was not playing for about 3 weeks because I was waiting for 0.10 patch to be released. Whenever I go out I use AKMs or M4s, IOTV, Tactec and Zsh helmets so... I think your reply is pretty much invalid . BTW I don´t like fort armor because it makes you walk much slower and Atlyns constrict your vision. Personal preference. I just like PvP fights. Killing hatchlings is boring, so I´d rather fight a naked guy with a powerful rifle.

    Mosin Nagant rebalance

    Since the addition of Mosin we are seeing less hatchlings, so I´d say we don´t need to rebalance anything.
  7. Unfortunately, no. Let´s hope the 0.10 patch delivers some major improvements regarding lag and desync so we south americans don´t face a huge disadvantage towards players from other continents.

    Some Work in Progress Material

    Wipe front to back or back to front? Because that´s the only wipe we are interested at the moment.

    Some Work in Progress Material

    Nice! Great additions to the game, specially the dump pouch. Are we gonna be able to put used mags on the dump pouch, or is it just a cosmetic item? I just don't understand what's the point of having a 'Devildog Mayo' as well as a "Kotton beanie" in this game.

    Attention hatchlings!

    Too damm high indeed!
  12. Parabéns aos britânicos e holandeses! Conseguirão jogar Tarkov com um ping baixíssimo! Agora... será que a adição destes servidores era de extrema necessidade, já que existem alguns servidores próximos e que atendem o Reino Unido e a Holanda, como por exemplo os servidores de Estrasburgo, Frankfurt e Varsóvia? Enquanto isso, a América do Sul segue na escuridão... DOZE países foram completamente esquecidos pela BSG, e não vislumbramos , a curto-médio prazo, qualquer mudança neste cenário! Até quando seremos forçados a realizar nosso trabalho de beta testers em servidores norte americanos com ping médio de 160 m/s?
  13. Awesome article, could not agree with you more regarding how ammo should be in EFT: "The devs have access to world famous russian weapon manufacturers, the literal factories that designed weapons like the AS VAL and yet they let reddit and streamers influence their decisions about how ammo should perform? Ammo performance should be a black box, set-in-stone, modeled after realism as hard as possible and then never changed, no matter how much casual muppets demand buffs because they used their 6B43 as a battering ram on factory office tunnel and lost. There is no space for complaints or suggestions. BSG should know better. There is few places in the world like the factories they visit that provide them with more realistic data."
  14. Infelizmente, isto é bastante comum aqui no fórum... muitos de nós já sofreram sanções (warnings, posts deletados, threads trancadas, banimentos e até caso de trapaças em sorteios de keys do jogo!) impostas pela "ditadura dos moderadores". ... é por essas e por outras que evito comentar na sessão em português do fórum e prefiro interagir na sessão em inglês. Afinal de contas, como o @Th1AG0 disse... Porém, os responsáveis por mediar este debate estão com sua atenção voltada para outras coisas. Triste.

    We deserve a server in South America?

    Not even the Amazon Web Services that hosts PUBG in Brazil? Has BSG contacted this company?
