  1. After listening to Nikita and other talk about ways to counter hatchlings -- most recently in yesterday's stream -- it made me wonder... Is it possible one of the main drivers of hatchlings has to do not with gear fear, not with players being "down and out" on their luck, but instead as an "answer" to one of the game's primary incentive structures? Currently, a player knows that if he finds a certain key, he is essentially "set for life" * * Yes, some keys now have durability with a set number of uses, but let's set that aside for now Knowing the RNG nature of EFT's loot spawns, a player may reason to himself that even it takes 10-15 tries, the "reward" of eventually getting the item far outweighs the nuisance. So what do these players do? Grab a hatchet and... Sprint to loot spawn 1, pocket the item if present Sprint to loot spawn 2, pocket the item if present Sprint to loot spawn 3, pocket the item if present etc etc If they get killed a long the way, then so what? They'll just rinse and repeat and try again. For them, dying is merely the "cost of doing business" in this way and they are not put off by it at all. And this is because they know that, no matter how much they die in the process, the "reward" that comes from finally getting that key, will "set them up for life" for the remainder of the EFT wipe. Rather than gear up and fight for survival, their main objective is to play EFT as some sort of giant meta-lottery game where all they care about is amassing money and stash value. What if this sense of "permanence" is actually the heart of the matter? Right now, experienced players know that once they have a certain set of keys, from that point on, they've pretty much "arrived" in the game. A lot of the "mystery/exploration" of the game is removed because they now have access to the game's best loot pools with virtually NO risk of ever losing that access. From that point on, they can farm those areas over and over and over. Is it possible, then, that shifting the game away from "set for life" mechanics and toward "scavenging" mechanics could "fix" the hatchling issue and make the gameplay loop more rewarding? What might this look like? Maybe keys are no longer extractable and no longer secure-container-able (stick with me, hear me out!), but instead must be scavenged in-raid each and every time, and every key for the map is guaranteed to spawn in somewhere... So you want to get into Dorm room XYZ? Cool! First you gotta find the key. It could be in one of the dorm's front offices and/or in the pockets of one of the nearby roaming scavs, etc. This could also give more of a sense of progression and flow to each raid. "Okay, if we want to hit up room XYZ, first we gotta find the key. John, you clear out this wing, Bobby, you and I will go check this wing. Depending on what we find, we'll meet up here and plan our next route." This sense of a "dynamic" objective, where one action stair-steps into another, may lead to some really interesting raids and firefights between groups/solo's/etc. Maybe keys remain extractable but all have durability settings with limited uses... Realistic? Ehh, not really. But it might be a decent counter to the one-and-done mentality currently in the game. What else? The other "hidden" possibility with hatchlings is that it caters to a wholly different gameplay loop for experienced players as well In my experience, even veteran players play recklessly and overspend their budgets every single run, knowing that if they do go broke, all they have to do is complete a few "money runs" to make things right again. Learn from mistakes? Pshh, not really! Worry about dying? Nahh, no thanks! If they can always "get it back" in no time, then why worry about it? I'm speaking from experience here because I've played with a guys who do this every wipe. They're already level 40+ and know the game inside and out. And part of the reason they are so high level is because they do exactly what I describe above. Best armor, best guns, best ammo, all the time. Which means they win a good number of their firefights. And in those instances where they do lose, well guess what? They've got SO MUCH money on hand it's no problem to re-kit again, OR! if they are running low on cash, they use their "permanent" piggy bank of keys to hatchet run their stash back up to millions and millions. In their minds, they've "earned" this luxury because they've farmed for the keys over the course of dozens of hatchet runs over and over and over. Now I don't know about you, and I can't speak for others, but to me, this also runs against Nikita's vision for the "True Tarkov Experience". I understand, also, Nikita's worry about "losing" players who become too discouraged to keep playing. But for every "casual" player that EFT may loses from the True Tarkov Experience, what if it "gains" that many and more who are attracted to EFT's vision and scope? ----- Thoughts? Suggestions? Improvements? Thanks for reading! ----- PS: Everyone I play with is eagerly awaiting Nikita's True Tarkov Experience and, even though we're all adults with families and jobs, etc we welcome the more hardcore elements of the game with open arms. I know it's controversial, but we all 100% support secure-container restrictions -- and even removing them altogether. But that's just our take on it, no bully please
  2. Hello devs and EFT gamers, We ran a Facebook poll on the English speaking group "Escape from Tarkov - Gamers" to determine the community attitude on possible changes to the secure container. BSG has suggested that community attitude is important in guiding how secure containers will work permanently. Our closed Facebook group consists of more than 11,000 gamers that are highly representative of the wider EFT community. 2 options were provided. The poll began October 17th and ran through October 23. 392 players responded. 68.3% of respondents preferred no changes to the secure container. 31.7% preferred the container to work as it did in the recent event (nothing added to container in-raid). With this sample size, the margin of error was +/- 5% with a 95% confidence interval that the respondents are representative of the EFT community. This margin demonstrates a 95% likelihood that between 63.3% and 73.3% prefer secure containers remain unchanged (group link provided below--members can view the poll) https://www.facebook.com/groups/EscapefromTarkovGamers/?multi_permalinks=1164513910425138&notif_id=1571858083342926&notif_t=feedback_reaction_generic

    Post apocalyptic camping ahead.

    This feature is going to make players ignore quests, and prioritize hunting each other. Camping will increase by 200%. The mag box is now 100% useless. Hatchling runs will increase by 200% because any area worth something is now going to be camped 24/7. Absolutely no one is going to go after the keys anymore with a single piece of loot on them. The player population will drop by 36% within the first month, because the players that can't "get good" are just going to rage quit because it's going to feel like their getting bullied by the players that already completed the quests. I predict the companies total revenue will drop by about 56% after this bad image will stain the game forever just like how in rust people don't like playing it anymore, because they know they're going to get gang-raped by a clan of 30. This change is going to be very ducking bad for the longevity of the game. And when I mean camping I don't mean fully gear buff dudes camping the zone. I mean a bunch of ducking assholes that might as well be considered lesser beings than bunch of scavs, laying in bushes with scoped mosins, and sks's. I predict post-apocalyptic levels of game ruining camping, that will turn your streaming tarkov experience into a Mosin run hell hole. I suggest this change to secure containers be held back until a solution that doesn't involve crippling the game is found. Welcome to Space Mexico.

    Secure Container Use Delay

    Just a simple suggestion that would help both players trying to get specific items and who want's to complete quests also making the game more challenging. If you put an item in the container or use an item from it there would be a 10 seconds timer (to unlock the box, take the item and lock it again). That would make, for example, people stop riskying their lifes to get a Ledex and some naked hatched boy just took it right into his container, you can kill him but you lost the item and probably will be killed staying in the center of the map. Also, it would be interesting have to wait the same time to open doors by a key inside your container (as a penalty), i really get sad when i kill someone opening a door and find no key in his pockets, i think i'm not the only one. Please. Coment and fill this idea with yours. Sorry my bad english, i'm writting this very fast and don't have a google translate to help me out right now. See'ya in tarkov!

    SECURE CONTAINER RESTRICTIONS IDEA

    BEFORE THE MATCH... -Keys, maps, and quest items can only be placed into your container. (This would solve hatchlings hiding pistols or weapons and dragging them for use in the match). This would also apply to all hidden bandages, ammunition, attachments, drinks/food, etc. The item placed in your special container is LOCKED when the match begins... DURING THE MATCH... -If you have a container with 9 boxes for example... 1 box in your container has a keybar. You can still use this keybar with keys to open doors. THIS KEYBAR IS LOCKED in box 1 of your gamma container because that's where you placed it BEFORE the match started. If you find any item DURING the match, it can be placed into the special container (boxes 2-9) and moved around freely in your container or back to use when needed BUT... there is a 10 second cool-down when dragging an item TO and FROM this special container during the match. AFTER THE MATCH... -All items placed in the special container can be moved. If a player leaves an item NOT ALLOWED INTO A MATCH (weapon, armor, meds, etc.) in the container... either a new match CANNOT be started OR another idea is that this item will preoccupy that spot and not allowed for use in the next match and will remain in the container. That's a developer choice... CURRENCY... *The hardest decision is currency. Personally, I wouldn't allow currency to be brought into a match because that can be used on woods for example to escape. As far as finding currency DURING the match is INSANELY difficult to come to an agreement on. This is coming from someone who is fair and bought the Edge of Darkness pack... OPTIONS: 1) Currency CANNOT be placed into special containers 2) Currency CAN be placed into special containers once they are found in a match but for every 1/10 of the total stack, 10 seconds is added to the move. example: 10,000 roubles takes 10 seconds to move to your special container. 100,000 roubles takes 60 seconds to move to your special container. 3) Currency can be placed into special containers but at a 1/4 stack limit example: 25,000 roubles can only be allowed into your special container. As for American dollars and euros, a player won't find that many in a match in the current state of the game and move time can be adjusted accordingly... Done. Someone hire me.
  7. If no one can drop for me, then I will go for the container mentioned below. The Epsilon container is a 2x4 portable container, obtainable by completing the Prapor quest The Punisher - Part 6. ^ This is what I will be going for right off the bat otherwise, I just wanted people to know it's possible to get a large container by simply playing the game. I was worried it was going to be an issue and I'd be stuck with 2x2 forever. Just in case no one wants to/can be bothered to drop me a Gamma... Is anyone looking for a group to complete the prapor quests on server restart? Hope this post is allowed, if not just delete it and accept my apology.

    secure contaner

    hey i wanted to know if the gamma/alpha contaners need to be insured i have been doing it but i don't want to wast money
  9. From what I've been hearing about the Secure Containers, they'll hold onto your stuff even if you die, and be returned to you after death. My question is, What's the point of insuring them if that's the case? As it stands right now, It's only wasting a solid 15k rubles I could have used on something else. Do items in the box go missing if the box isn't insured?
