  1. Don't take this personally, but this is starting to look like reloaded-era G1 excuses to me... I hope we don't need to see more of these...
  2. I've never sold a legendary weapon. And bought only a few. The rest is pocket change.
  3. When someone did that "what makes one a veteran" or whatever the topic was, where ppl could vote on the hours spent, it started to make more sense why I've been not sure if some ppl are cheating or not. If someone has 5000 hours more than you do, of course it'll feel like being cheated on, since they know everything backwards and forwards by heart... I just keep sucking with all the guns with my miserable 2,5k hours, most of them during beta and early release, so no wonder I can't beat some of the folks as it turns out they have like 7k or 10k or even more hours than that in the game... (I remember reading an essay somebody wrote about stuff, where it was mentioned that 10k hours of practice at pretty much anything will make you one of the best in the world at that, regardles what "that" is, unless you're like handicapped or something)
  4. I've said this at some point before, but this is something they easily could add (just needs animation for it). Dual X could be same stats as Y, besides reload time etc. Dual Z could be same stats as Å, besides reload time, mag cap, etc. Not rocket sience. Just simple "2 of these equal this" conclusions and adjustments upon that.
  5. I hate the sniper stages. Also find it weird that beyond that, it keeps mostly getting better and better (imho) instead of actually getting more difficult. The selection of guns is OK-ish, apart from HVR and maybe one another gun I don't want to get too personal with... The order they're set could however do with minor tweaks (nothing groundbreaking, just little swaps between a and b and x and y).
  6. Can not be done currently, because it would require creating a tool that throws your gender-specific stuff to bin and gives you new gender-specific thing that you'll be needing in the future (clothing).
  7. I wonder what's going on in the background, because the servers didn't crash down, they were properly taken down, with shutdown countdown broadcasted and everything. Is it ISP doing their "things" without LO being aware beforehand or did we forget to read mail (or pay the bill )?
  8. This game... Got the apparently ultra-rare skin activity 2nd time tonight, but ofc server took nosedive before I got it finished. That's 2 failures to complete it out of 2 attempts now. I don't know what to say.
  9. I wish we had more time remaining in the event... Couldn't really play much in last 2 weeks due to work scheduling.
  10. I had the skin activity once, but didn't have time to complete it at that session. Not gonna get it for 2nd time it seems. Also I wonder how many pumpkin soldiers I'd still need to kill, as there is no counter and I have no idea if killing the horseman counts towards the 100 or not. Not sure if I should abandon my push for the 100 and focus on getting the quicker roles on my crim or not.
  11. It's frustrating to keep trying to accomplish something, when you don't even know how much more you still need do before it's finished. And why so short? When an event involves any grindy stuff, the time allocated for it should be set "sufficient" for weekend warriors too (unless it's been already extended while I've been busy pulling 12-hour shifts at work)? I'll be amazed, if I can even 100% complete this halloween on ONE character (out of 10)(-ish?)
  13. Nerfing any contenders of the ntec-5 should't be done before they have decided how they are going to re-balance it and have performed that duty (and possibly re-balanced it countless times). We could as well be theoretically talking about STAR getting re-balanced right now, but why not focus on one thing at the time for the time being? It's not like the massive balance patches have led into huge success and fixed all the problems at once in the past...
  14. Headless horseman thingy might bring me back to play the game for the duration of that event. Beyond that, it's irrelevant what happens there. And on what schedule.
  15. Been recently listening a lot of Rammstein. Deutschland, Ausländer, Radio... can't understand even half of the stuff, but it tickles me the right way.
  16. I love the excuses to not do the migration that go by the "cyrilics" -excuse, as if someone in the last 5 years had said something important in the district chat. Russian is just another language i can't understand to me. I know the cyrilic alphabet and some simple basics of russian, but beyond being able to ask if I can open cabin window because the air is bad, I can't have a real conversation in russian even if my life depended on it. Same goes with german, french, italian, spanish, portugese... etc... even when those are in the same alphabet as finnish and english are. It doesn't really float my boat either way, but to be crude it would be nice to filter out "obvious non-english messages" from the chat based upon the fact that I most likely can't read it. I know finnish, english and some swedish, yet all the rest is a blur when you go beyond "left, right, straight" and insults...
  17. 1) Population. (Remember when we had to queue to log in? Remember how there used to be multiple full or almost full instances of both mission districts going at any given time, even in the early morning?) 2) People not knowing everything. (All the ins and outs to various mission locations, camp spots, how and where from to counter those, how many hits weapon x is at y meters, what are stages for mission z and where they'll likely happen if 1st stage is at that specific location, etc...)
  18. My thoughts after seeing it really is the same green top hat from eons ago.
  19. I did all the achievements apart from the Ho ho ho... 2018 on my main (and all minus that and gun-runner on my main crim too). I also gave that Ho ho ho-thing a go on my main late in the event, but it's really a pain in the neck with this community and specially the population levels. I got little over halfway it during one good session, but then the FC population died for the night and next 3 days literally nobody was handing out gifts during my online hours. It didn't help that 90% of people were using meta weapons and sweating really hard when some of us tried to make use of waywardly modded bullsharks and other nonsense the santa boxes gave us. Also I got really scared at one point, when one daily didn't for whatever reason count towards the santa slayer on my main. Luckily I had still one extra day left when I was done on that, having played 10 days in a row which was only possible due to having easier than expected work schedule on 27th and 28th... Had those days been lost due to work (like the start of the event before 22nd day was) I would have just called it quits at that point and not bothered to play at all on subsequent days.
  20. You mean it's yet another thing that isn't what it actually says on the tin?
