  1. I have been playing Tarkov for a while, and just started playing seriously this wipe. I decided I wanted to finish all of the quests, and see how long it would take me. Being 2/3rds of the way done, I am very happy with my progress, and enjoying the quests thoroughly. My problem comes when I am fighting other PMC's. I know this topic has been debated over and over, and people always say suck it up, whatever, but the solo vs groups is slowly making me hate this game. Let me give you the bare points: I feel as though I am an alright player. I know how to take fights, and how to run, and the general tactics surrounding an FPS game. I know when fighting groups, you need to force fights into 1v1's, and can't peek all the enemies at the same time. The problem is, I am not a god tier player. I don't have ridiculous aim and spray transfers. I love Tarkov because it's tactical, its difficult, and it is all about strategy. But every time I take a fight with a group, I shoot the first one, and immediately try to run, because I assume there will be a second one. By killing one person, I have given up my position, told them what gear I have, told them what weapon I am using, and shown them how fast I can kill them. I give literally every tactical advantage up to the next person in the group, who now knows my position, knows what I can do, while I have no Intel whatsoever. If I don't hit ridiculous shots, or completely stomp them in one spray, I cannot live. I know I am not bad at the game, but I also know I am not great at the game either. I can pull off 1v2's occasionally, but only when I hit some nasty shots or do a very cheesy peek through something. I know people are going to say, "Get better, play better, blah blah blah, but I play this game a ton, and know I'm not bad at it. If the only way to be able to play solo is to be an order of magnitude of skill better than the person you are facing, then I don't know if I want to play this game. Being tactically better just doesn't cut it when it's a solo vs. a group. You just need to be mechanically better than them by a significant margin. I am not a god at this game, and most likely never will be. Today, I took 24 fights against PMC's. 6 Were against solo players, 16 against duos. I won 5 of the 6 1v1's, and 2 of the 16 1v2's. I really am just losing hope about playing this game. Don't even get me started on the fights vs 3 or more players. If the only way I can play this game is to get a friend to play all the time, and only play with them, I might just not play the game at all. Now, I am not saying I have a solution. I don't really know what you can do, and I understand that the game is being designed around squad play. I also think that losing a lot of people because playing solo sucks so much, and people don't have friends to play with is an awful way to create a game, because you are alienating what I believe to be a significant part of the player base. P.S. I humbly request that nobody starts spamming get good in this thread, I am looking for some wisdom from a solo who went through the stage I am going through right now, to help get me over the hump. I love this game so much, but it's become so toxic to me that I might just go back to rainbow six and cs:go, despite them feeling like watered down baby games after playing Tarkov. P.P.S. Is the second time on labs supposed to be for solos? I thought it was, but I keep running into groups in labs.

    Buddy Aid

    I think that an implementation of some sort of buddy aid system would be a great feature. This idea came to mind when getting some friends into the game. Very new players who don't quite understand all of the mechanics involved with healing yourself. Which is understandable because at first it can be confusing. Some sort of system where I could use a CMS or other medical items to help heal my friends faster or heal them if they didn't bring extra medical supplies, I feel would be a great addition to the game. An issue I thought of that could come from this would be maybe your friends spamming you with injectors, so possibly for drugs there could be some sort of system in place that the player receiving aid could accept the aid being given. I was really impressed when BSG added the heavy bleed mechanic to the game. I'd love to see more complex medical mechanics added to EFT in the future. What do some of you guys think of this? Anything to add?
  3. Didnt see thread about squads with the search so here it goes: Im playing solo but I have started bumping into squads pretty much every raid. Also I dont have the best weapons, traders are low level and im struggling to get decent loadout. (My prapor dropped from lvl 2 to lvl 1?) Running into squads all the time is getting me killed a bit too much for my liking. I can deal with the duos most of the time, but after that it gets tricky specially since im not so geared up and squads of 3 have a lot more firepower and sometimes a decent duo is pain in the ass. My point being I think there are way too many squads so players like me (Who are playing solo) are at huge disadvantage. Could you make option that you are not forced to match against squads or something? Dying 3 times in a row to a squad of 3+ players is starting to be annoying.

    Squad Matching

    Hello Tarkov Community, I have a question about squad matching if anyone can shed light on it or direct me toward Tarkov's server matching policies? Are you able to have a team of 5 vs another team of 5 by purposefully selecting a single server? This would mean a planned 10 individuals would load onto the same map to vs each other. These two squads would be doing this for the purpose of battle only. Before anyone says it's hard to match another players server - well it is not. If both parties enable only one server and the click ready at the same exact time - then there is an 80 percent chance to match in the same game. There is a slightly lower chance to do this with less members in a squad. Trying to match a 5v5 squad which is ten people is very easy and happens almost every time a single server is enabled. The reason players may want to do this is to run team competitions. May a mod or a dev please tell me if this is allowed or would it be abusing server matching policies? Thanks again for any help Tarkov Community! 😃

    Switch armband slot for IFF slot

    This would be a nice way to add new way to identify teammates, for example, instead of using and color band, you could choose to use a chem ligth in the back of the plate carrier for the low ligth maps like interchange or some IR strobe or v lite that you could turn on and off to quickly signal your happy trigger friends nota to shoot you... Normally my team don't use armbands... maybe we use different colors each if we are running similar kits... but I think this would be a nice addition

    Squad capacity

    Maybe have squads capacity at 10, this can make tarkov squad fights intense as well.

    Squad Deploy Button

    I sometimes find myself loading in much later than my friends. It can sometimes lead to having my teammates being left in the path of other players because they were waiting for me. I have also been spawned in-front of players because of the late spawn. I was thinking that right before it would spawn a person in a group, it can hold that person until all group members are ready. It can also give the player a button to force deploy if they don't feel like waiting.
  9. My brother recently decided to purchase EFT so he could run raids along side me instead of spectate and he mentioned some ideas to me that seem very fitting for the game. He noticed that the cursor appears when looking at items in game and said to me "I wish it would appear when you look at a teammate. I still don't know how to tell who is in my squad until I've already shot at them." I also believe that if there was a mechanic that would bring the white dot cursor up when aiming at someone you have created a squad with it could really help players form teams as randoms and also help inexperienced players avoid team killing. He also mentioned the idea to have voice commands be displayed in text somewhere off center of the screen so that if for example, your teammate says "Out of ammo" you as his squad member can see this voice command as text to know that the voice command was used by your squad member and not another player. Please feel free to add your input on these suggestions because they both struck me as two possible steps to furthering the possibilities of squads being formed and maintained in-game without having to use some other program to communicate.

    Squads

    Squading... or playing with others, yes i can see the apeal ofc, and sometimes i do team with a friend, but 5 man squads on factory like the TAW members are doing? Pointless its a 5 v 1 situation, and that doesnt include the scavs, either make the map bigger with more players, or dont let 5 man squads join a 6/7 player map.....

    Hatchling roaming in squads now

    lol this game is awesome.. I just encountered a trio of hatchlings running from bush to bush in the woods together.. at first I was frustrated and angry as the last one pulled out a pistol and almost made swiss cheese out of me however it showed how unpredictable the game is.. desperate situations may call for desperate measures (or just for the fun of it) and their odds of survival were quite understandable.. luckily for me i got them in the open.. i was the guy with the short-barreled AKS.. to the third dude with the hatchet.. i'm keeping it! so that it doesnt come back to you through insurance
