    This game is still broken.

    Sniping is broken beyond belief. It shows 195% for a head shot when theyre out in the freaking open and they take zero damage, then they shoot you twice without enough time to even move and your dead. Devolve Nd Glu tacticals can shoot the same distance as a sniper rifle and kill you quick as hell, the weapon switching is still leggy as hell, the sticking on surfaces is still a pain, and the lag spikes... I can't curse enough to explain the lag spikes. I love this game I really do, but this build is so broken I'm going to end up taking a break for a while until this is all sorted out and the game ply is smooth...er. This is just to rediculous to comprehend.

    with regard to the sniping thing:

    it was brought up at fanfest. the dev basically said CCP use a very aggressive culling algorithm. what this means is that the high quality stuff gets switched out for very low quality versions very harshly.

    what this means for terrain is that a VERY low polygon model is used, as opposed to the high polygon model in your immediate vicinity, the algorithm forces the renderer to draw a low poly version that doesn't fit the area of the high poly version. what you get is seeing someone floating, or standing in mid air, or seemingly out in the open.

    all games do this, but the unreal engine handles it the worst. the fact that they have to go aggressive at all is indicative of how poor the base engine is atm.



    CCP where right when they said they were CPU limited rather than GPU limited. hopefully, 8 1.6GHz Cores are sufficient to overcome the problem next gen, but better for them to fix it sooner rather than later

    what i do for sniping at range though is to find the point where the reticle is flashing between red and blue and then fire. more often i'll hit.....if not they're behind something.


    but i agree on the TAR. what the fudge is the range on these things?! CCP need to; 1, break the use of modded controllers and stop these things auto firing(their damage is $#@!ing ridiculous for the ROF). 2, provide clear descriptions of weapon ranges.

    half of my deaths come from modded controllers. i know this coz im making a point of looking how im getting killed now as its happening very often. conclusion? TAR under the guise of the standard assault rifle.

    Dont go to the forums to give feed back it'll just be a bunch of trolls telling you to stop sucking and using alts to make ridiculous arguments. They do a poor job of moderation on the dust forums.
    i love couch co op

    Well yeah, like I said, Ye's problem is actually an intended design of the game. Proto =/= militia can't beat you. My point was that any issues with the game serve a better purpose posted on the DUST forums than they do here. We can always be linked to threads that are made there, and our discussion is more likely to be seen.

    Yeah after I got fed up with that issue, I tried it out myself. I took the unlimited suit, put the toxin AR and the Toxin submachine because I hate scrambler pistols, and I've just used those suits for a whole day and I have to say, I went 17:8 with that loadout in one match and did indeed take down several proto guys and advanced suits pretty easily. (Not just in that match but all day.) I do understand the mechanics of it a bit better thanks to toolshed's post and my own trial and error. So now my mindset is "Spend skill points on drop suit mods and weapons that are already on the free suits, make those mods more efficient, use the kickass free suits then spec into proto level stuff." I found out that the skills transfer to even the militia lvl gear on those free suits. If you spec into AR's and have the proficiency lel skill to lvl 5, your free suits AR is included in that skill so it's going to do more damage. Same with all the other mods skills.

    So long as you have good gear for higher stakes matches in the future. I need my Directors to employ every possible advantage in the matches that matter.

    I do still have my proto gear and proto mods. Do not worry. I'm only using the free fittings for instant matches, saving isk, and SP, making the proto gear more reliable.

    ive found that an logistics lav with a few decent (non matia) mods has been doing very well for me at least, the only 2 issues ive come across is 1. i get killed alot when im in the drivers seat so people will just jack it and then your facimg your owm lav, and 2. (this happened alot when i was playing with trolll a few days ago) when i was driving it i would just randomly get stuck and be unable to move it nor recall it
