    Noob Needs Help

    Hey all, I picked up EFT near the end of the year sale, and I have almost no progression in this game. It's not that I'm not playing the game; it's more so that I get raped game after game, so I end a round with barely any experience and no gear almost every time. I'll add details of experiences I've had and what I understand about this game so far, but the TL;DR is, how do I improve my character my gear, and my gameplay? First off, I understand this game is not released yet, and there are many problems that come with that. but I am only just now asking for help because I needed to make sure that my failures weren't due solely to Beta mechanics and bugs first. Some of my early issues were related, such as DSync and getting into a round with 5 full minutes to extract on the other side of the map. Those things are certainly frustrating, but everyone deals with that, and it doesn't affect me in the game nearly as much. Secondly, I understand that to build up my character's skills, I need to play daily. As much as I'd like to play this game daily, it's not going to happen; I have a life that includes responsibilities that take up most of the day, and even when I get free time, EFT is not the only game I play. That short rant aside, do character skills make a drastic difference in gameplay, and will I be hopeless in this game if I do not dedicate time to build them up? Third, I have played offline mode enough to get a decent understanding of maps, learn about the gear I want and need, and engage and survive firefights with Scavs. In short, none of these things are holding me back. I know what I'm doing, what my goal is, mostly where I'm going, and how to loot without getting shot in the back. The difference at this point is that online, against real people, firefights are an entire different story. This difference is obviously going to be there; there's always a difficulty spike between AI and human opponents, but I have yet to be gunned down by a Scav that needed less that 3 shots to kill me. This leads me to my next point: Matchmaking. I don't know if it's just me, but I am always put into matches with players' levels and gear so good that it would take 3-4 friendlies with my skills to stand a chance against any one enemy human I've encountered in this game so far. I know that there's a chance that I'm only on when the high level players are on, but the lowest level enemy I've seen in a match so far was 15, and that was my first week playing. Since then, the lowest I've seen is 20, but the norm I'm seeing is between 27 and 35. I'm level 3, and in games like this, I get lucky to get a Scav kill before running into these guys and dying. The gear difference is unreal: my weapons seem to do no damage while enemies will gun me down with 1-2 shots almost every time (3-4 shots the rest of the time). Is there a trick people use to get through these matches that results in more gear and experience, or am I screwed the moment I spawn in? I'd like to note that I've tried avoiding all enemies when I see that I'll be in a match like this; it'll take a hundred years to gear up if I continue at that rate. My final point is spawning. This one is more of a plea to the Devs; can PMC spawns be more randomized like Scav spawns? I have not been killed on or near spawn yet as a Scav, but I have been killed on spawn 3-4 times now as a PMC, including right before hopping on the forums to posts this thread. I'm sick of getting my PMC geared up and ready to play a good game just to lose all that gear before I've even gotten bearings on where I spawned in. Has anyone found a temporary solution to being spawn killed yet, or is that just the roll of the dice? I look forward to playing more and learning more, and I understand that the more I learn about where to find good loot and where to and not to get into firefights, the more I'll enjoy this game. I'm reaching out though simply because, in almost 2 months of playing, I've had only 1 good PMC run and a few good Scav runs. I've never had this much trouble getting the hang of a game and finding fair fights before. I want to like this game more, but it's so frustrating starting out against these odds. At the very least, I hope the Devs see that this issue will be a genocide when the Open Beta starts soon.

    The scavs can see through bushes and fences. I do not get this at all. Also they aim for my toes. What is the point of me buying a fort and fast to just die by getting shot twice in the leg from a scav in a bush with a sega 12. I really can't see myself playing this game anymore unless they fix scavs in the next patch!!!

    Next update

    In the upcoming February 8th update is there going to be a wipe?
  6. Hey guys, Another "Sherpa" post here. I've completed all of my tasks, and have been successfully raiding for quite some time. After looking into the Sherpa Program's development, I want to get started early. I am looking to help new players get into the game, understand the mechanics and tactics, as well as economy & inventory management. A few things about my style: I don't hand-hold, but will do my best to teach a player how to assess risks, decide on a plan of action, and how to survive. I will also eliminate any "gear fear" you might have, and will teach you how to build up your personal economy and maintain its growth. I am not likely to just hand out items or gear, but I will teach players how to successfully raid with a purpose, whether that be items, money, tasks, weapons, or gear. I am a pretty laid back gamer and have a loose playstyle. I am willing and able to adapt to each player's needs and play styles. Most importantly, I know there is always more to learn about Tarkov, so anyone who wants to learn from me and teach me a thing or two, DM me. Best of luck, A Sherpa Wannabe

    Good Day, I am locked in USA servers, it either wasn't an option to choose server region or wasn't properly displayed as a choice when I pre-ordered escape from Tarkov. I am not going to pay $10 to change to Europe for reasons being, 1. I have already purchased your game and it is ridiculous that i have to pay to change servers and 2. I cant afford $10, I saved up so long to pre-order this and support you guys even though I know pre-orders are dodgy. Please help/advice/do-the-right-thing regards Ashton

    Black Flashes

    I was wondering if I'm the only one who has an issue with black flashes for about a quarter of a sec randomly. It only happens in EFT, nothing else. I thought it had to deal with BIOS but I did a manual update of my BIOS and it wasn't that. Anyone one have the same issue or know how to fix it?

    I am new to the game and was wondering if anybody would wanna teach me how it works. I don't really get the objective or what I should do. The trading kind of makes sense but I don't fully understand what the game has to offer.

    Nvidia Shadowplay

    Pessoal, beleza?! Pra quem tem nvidia, o Shadowplay esta funcionando normal no Tarkov?! Aqui não abre quando aperto Alt+Z mas nos outros games abre! O GeForce Experience nem reconhece o game.... Mesmo eu adicionando manualmente!
  24. What's the best way in your opinion to get the Fac. Key and does it spawn on Factory on dead scavs? Thanks
  25. For the past couple of days, I've been having an issue where the launcher would prompt me to reinstall the game every time it launched. I told the game to download into a folder in Program files x86 that was called "Escape from Tarkov". However, every time I would exit the game and come back later, the launcher would tell me to install and when I set a file path to the folder, it would tell me it is the wrong game version installed. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks ahead of time.
