  1. I play games to have fun and avoid problems in life. And not to have more of them.
  2. Warcraft III, C&C Generals, Fear Combat, Little Fighter
  3. Update the news page

    I hope they have some plans to involve some streamers into their marketing campaign. EA is right around the corner and there is still not a lot of hype around this game. I don't think one gameplay trailer will change that. But who knows ... maybe it will be mind blowing and I am wrong about that. Yet, I don't think creating hype so slow and on such a low level is a way to go.
  4. Destiny 2 on PC

    Yeah, the event is amazing. Also got two armor pieces from two engrams, exclusive sword from a third one and bought one armor piece, so I am happy. But that's the way you like it, isn't it? Getting a skin / reward by leveling / progression / challenges. You get several items by doing milestones every week and then you can literally buy anything you want (everything should appear at the eververse shop at some point) for "free" by just playing / leveling and dismantling rewards from bright engrams. I get around 200 bright dust every single day, so that's enough for me to get w/e I want. It's not like OW does it any better during the events.
  5. Steam Game Award nomination

    Doubt that. There is not a single category where I could vote for it.
  6. Lets talk about skins

    Sure, there might be. But from my experience skins acquired by progression, rank, achievements and challenges are usually only some basic / lower quality. Those eye catchy are mostly in lootcrates. And sure, it might not be a case in Battalion (hard to believe tho), but this specific part should be imho made by the example I described. But there is close to no point of doing that if you don't have a need to burn some spare money or you are unable to grind for a specific skin during some event. You can get everything for free. Even every single event item and you can also buy the rest on top of that. And it's not even that hard or takes that long to get what you want. And once again, this might work for Blizzard with huge player base. Not so sure about Battalion.
  7. Lets talk about skins

    The problem is that in Overwatch, you never have to pay for anything and still manage to get everything in the game. And while this might work for Blizzard and their huge player base, I am not so sure this would be a good decision for Battalion.
  8. Lets talk about skins

    Idk what do you mean by "most people" but I have a completely different experience. I don't know anybody who doesn't like some sort of customizations. Be it skins or something they unlock by playing. It gives the game more depth and is very requested and nice option to have as long as it doesn't create a p2w situation. I would also prefer one of these three options: 1) Connect the skins with steam market 2) Have an in-game only market but with option to trade skins like in Rocket League 3) Scrap the crate idea and allow us to buy whichever skin/s we want The reason behind that is -> I hate not being able to buy w/e I want. And while I do understand that crates most likely generate a better profit, the game should at least give me the option to trade whatever I got and don't like for something I might actually like to use. That's why I listed these three options. Not being able to buy w/e we want and having to rely on stupid RNG is bad enough, give us at least an option to get rid of it for something better. Or let us buy whatever we want. One more thing. Although Valve takes around 30% from every transaction, having skins on steam market should increase the player base. And Battalion might end up with more players playing and more money at the same time.
  9. Questions about servers and mods

    That would be a huge no go for me if something so major would change.
  10. Destiny 2 on PC

    But sure, I don't think anybody actually tested this gun before it was released. It's power was so obvious. That's why I love pvp. I don't care as much about pve (even though I have everything completed every single week on two characters). Back in time, this might maybe even bother me. But that's a long time ago. I use TS/Discord for any game I play and I usually play with a specific small group of people. It's not like you need a clan with 50 or more members to play anything in the game. Stable group of 6-10 people is more than enough. Also clan chat is supposed to come soon.
  11. What languages will Battalion 1944 support?

    From my experience. Translations made by community are sometimes better than the ones created by devs. Here it is how it could look like: https://translate.escapefromtarkov.com/
  12. Destiny 2 on PC

  13. Destiny 2 on PC

    I expect that. I knew there is no way for D2 to have just 2 DLCs, so I never thought Expansion pass will be enough for whole content. I would like CoD more if it was on a 3 year cycle tho. While I do have Expansion pass for some time and this won't affect me, this was some really shitty move from them. I heard they did the same in D1. I am not sure what's a common thing on consoles in terms of DLCs, but this will backfire on them on PC community really fast. But that's not even what pisses me off the most. They added exotic rifle Prometheus Lens that is completely OP to the extent when not a single weapon in a game can go 1v1 against that. And they still didn't remove it / fix it / disable pvp.
  14. Destiny 2 on PC

    Wish I were able to care about opinions of casual players. But whining of these people makes me smile. If I am able to enjoy the game longer than how much does it cost, so 1€ is at least 1 hour of gameplay, then it's a really good game for me. Because there are not a lot of games about which I could say that. I've spent more than 10 years playing largely MMO/FPS games and I used to play on HC level on most of them. And I must say that Destiny 2 is really high on my list, because it combines two elements I love and they nailed it. Sure, there is not so much of end game, but it doesn't matter as much if you like PvP, so you still have something to do. And yeah, pvp feels great to me, it's something different and the level of depth is fantastic. It's more about individual skill than Overwatch but it's way more about teamwork than BO3. It's actually somewhere in the middle where both aspects are very important to the same extent. If it wasn't for the lack of ranked system, it would be a perfect game. But that is supposed to come early next year. As for content. People whine about lack of end game content, yet I have to see a MMO with similar development time that had way more content than this when it was released. Most big mmo games are in development for 5-7 years and sometimes even they don't have way more content than this. It's also funny to find a person that whines about this having a less content than Destiny 1 after 3 years and all DLCs. People arguing about playerbase. It's funny tho, because shortly after PC release all online statistics I know were pulled down and you can't say for sure how many players are there. But to me it seems there are way more PC players than those on console. Expansion pass was sold out right away from every 3rd party site I visited. And what I got from D2 communities around the world is that console players are migrating from console to PC. I know a lot of players personally that have the game on both platforms but rarely come back to console. It's like that with any game. There might be a huge number of sales, but after a short time only a small fraction of that will actually continue playing. But somehow in 2017, people are still capable of making a noise about that. https://www.bungie.net/en/Explore/Detail/News/46504 http://www.metabomb.net/destiny-2/gameplay-guides/season-2-guide-events-weapons-armour-ornaments-and-more
  15. Destiny 2 on PC

    Yet it has no real impact on you. It's like if you were thirsty and bought a drink called "Blue water" but the water was actually green. Such a disaster ... If it doesn't have any meaningful impact on me, I don't care. I just simply don't have time for things like that. So when I want something and there is something "wrong" included but has no impact on my experience, I don't have reason, time and need to care. If I would have to worry about every single issue regardless of size, that would be the only thing I would be doing.
  16. Destiny 2 on PC

    So maybe don't do the same thing over and over again if your main goal is to grind bright engrams? I really don't understand what's so big deal about that (other than incorrect exp info). It's not like bright engrams give you any advantage and it felt like you get them very fast even before the change. They honestly don't feel like a microtransaction content and I can't imagine why would anyone pay for that. You earn them fast enough, it does not give you any advantage (you get hover bike from like every third engram and you need it only once, also fireteam medallion can be bought anytime for a super low price). You can literally get anything for free. The only thing that might take some time to get from bright engrams is some specific exotic skin, but i have yet to see one that does actually look good other than the one for Acrius that is not from bright engram anyway. Also on top of that most exotic weapons are not worth using. People are used to cry even over things they get for free these days. Same shitstorm was/is in Overwatch, where you get those crates like 5x faster and they have only skins inside. Same for Fortnite (i would understand it more there tho). I feel sorry for people that are used to hate on game just because there is something that has zero impact on playability. Sometimes I wish I had these problems too. Life would be much easier.
  17. Star Wars Battlefront 2 (EA/Dice)

    But people like it ... kappa http://www.metacritic.com/game/playstation-4/star-wars-battlefront-ii
  18. Most realistic aspects will just make the game not so much fun to play in a competitive way. I would leave realism to either mod created by community or to completely different game.
  19. Cod ww2 Beta

    Could someone please name me a single competitive game, that has a new release every single year? CoD these days doesn't even have a competitive aspects. Usually a bad console port, bad netcode, p2p connection, not fun to watch, non-existent weapon balance, killstreaks, supply drops with new weapons, dlc separating people ... That's why there are so many hate trains. It's so easy for people to get hyped over something and when that doesn't happen or reach their expectations, shitstorm happens. I just don't see a reason to believe something that did not show a single evidence that it's true. CoD was showing a middle finger to pc community for way too long.
  20. Well its the end of the month no updates
