    Extreme ping issues

    I don't believe it was after the 1,15 update, probably after some hotfix that my ping went from comfy ~50 to 80-100.
  2. So after the last patch the game loads but when I start the battle I get a crash log. Some guy in chat says that's because I use steam. Anyone have the same problem?
  3. why not make the ppd and ppsh more ugly to counter their large mag size?

    Simple Solution to Scopes

    Aha great idea dude! Binoculars should emit a little bit of x-rays and kill the enemy with DOT from mutated cancer cells toxicity, that stack's with the users forum nagging up to 10 times. Anyway give us back the iron sights default zoom reto! We will all go blind soon, or wear 1 inch thick glasses.

    Help us shape the future of the Dev Streams

    Question for the fellow players that probably never visit the forum : Why do you vote for the most stupid-hailmary questions that are worn out and dont represent even 10% problems that plague this game? My opinion is that we should have some poll before the questions part stats, and to some extend probe/sort out what's everyone's opinion about areas that are the worst part. Drawing from that poll its possible to get point of view what questions to prioritize . Not like now 50 people vote "Why germany UP?" "Why uniforms expensive?" What is up with that?

    Too much colors............... the game engine would expload!
  8. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaa... Its much more efficient to use the mg fire on your tank that HE shells. Reason being that by fairing your main gun you revel your position. I dont get it why some people are so fascinated by HE. Also, to hell with all of the RL statistics and tank this, infantry can do that. Its all about the feels. If playing a specific role doesnt feel right, something must be wrong with the game. For example: constant headshots, camping with scopes in a bush, made the game quite toxic. Is reto doing something about that? They are->"soon". Same thing with the tank gamplay, it just doesnt feel right. Some players may say it great, pure balance achieved, but why is the game getting hollow then? Why are you even on the forum? Should you not be playing the game while its this good, maybe the vehicle update and some other fixes will ruin it for you later? Enjoy the moment they say......

    Is H&G Dying?

    So true. I play H&G on 100% brightness and I wouldn't mind if it was possible to boost it to 200%. The ingame colors are like a black hole, sucking all the light.
  10. One of the most fun and challenging part of the game, at least for me was the old Hill Skirmish map. I still remember going for the hill point B, crawling on the ground, taking out the snipers on the big rock and taking cover from tank mg fire. That was a challenge and when I was starting, not every troll had AT weapons on him. Now everyone gets butthurt when they get killed by a tank, running without any cover on the open. Ofc, after it they feel obliged to hunt and charge the tank head on like its what you suppose to do. Its gone so pathetic with para AT, tanker AT, spawn camping AT infantry, recon AT. It is mostly reto's fault, but when a team obviously has a skill advantage and can see that the enemy is losing ground and they have anything. By that I mean they have aircraft superiority, their tanks are dominating and their infantry is pushing points. But.... that still not enough, they spawn their AT characters and start hunting the enemy spawn. Isnt that griefing ? Also for blaming this, or that factions for being more or less AT spammers. I get the SU they have that useless AT rifle to grind for, but the US and GER dont. Whats the point of all that grinding ? I see alot of times US losing the match just because 1/3, or more of their team is chasing tanks, even dancing around them in wonder. Really guys, when and if, you see tanks dominating on one side and supporting their infantry, its not magic. Its just that your tankers are bad. How many times did you see a superior para team, or recon win the game by being good at their role?

    Is H&G Dying?

    Yes, some questionable h&g updates came back to bite them at the butt. I hope that they can finish the vehicle update and the headshot mess sooner the better. So that we can at least have a basic combat thats not frustrating to play.
  12. I dont know if this is related, but I too play mostly staged where my ping is usually around 50. When playing on the war server the ping is unstable and its like my connection is experiencing hick-ups, jumping from 50 in a instant of a second to 70, 100, 150+ ping. I rather the ping was a stable 120 ping than a dynamic 50-70->150 that I get playing war.

    Ask questions for Q&A & Why #14

    Will reto ever look deeper in the weight game mechanic. Its ridiculous how a guy wearing a rifle, pistol and few ap grenades gets tired from running, and on the other hand you have people with at nades that surely weight in several kilos + assault weapon + Dynamite Lover badge +Hoarder badge, and they are no different then the regular set up. I dont even want to go how carrying alone a bazooka and its ammo and the at soviet rifle is unreal.
  14. car thief - having this badge equipped you increase your chance of someone like your friends, even Reto calling the police on you.
  15. German helmets were crap. But the US and soviet were good.
  16. I know that most ww2 helmets could stop a pistol bullet, but Reto made it very clear that they increased the multiplayer because the pocket pistols, so that they can matter. They may add some feature in the SOON reality where helmets could give some protection. This is one of those questionably changes that reto made to change a stable part of the game that noone asked to change. That change + some other stuff like recoil, cone and spread of the bullets made a headshot fest out of the gamplay.

    Your gaming experience

    THIS ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Maps are huge. And having less than 20 players spread through different classes and squads that run like in all direction makes it even more obvious. I don't really care about the weapon balance, because there are bigger problems ingame than that. I don't know for rest, but I played alot of CoD2 back in the past and I guess thats why I like ww2 like shooters. I loved those maps in CoD 2 especially the small ones. You could fight in close quarters and it would feel enjoyable. Unlike there , here in H&G for some time now the random effortless headshots that someone kills you with the first bullet fired from his weapon makes me wait a moment and exit the game soon after. Who knows maybe it's the combination of spawning so far from the contested capture zone, only to be killed in a split second by a guy thats not even aiming. All that walking, running, or driving just to succumb to a easy headshot . It's funny how the only two classes that somewhat are playable to me are tanker and recon. I'm sure alot of people play planes, but thats not for me.
  18. The problem of the game is needs a ton more time to develop properly. I don't know if I'm saying this right, but the game has one and only game mode - capture and hold. The colors look washed out and the hurt my eyes and this is nothing new. Some core game mechanics like clone fire and recoil may feel real to someone that fired a rifle in RL, but to me it not enjoyable. I don't like it and it spams headshots that are a direct cause of that. I never liked the war part of the game, or the map, and that is the part of the game that I played the least. It just doesn't feel right. 3 factions fighting each other in some chaos, and after some time one gets to dominate the rest, so they win, and than it all resets again. WOW..... And they say that the first ww1 /ww2 were meaningless. Staged battles are meaningless chaos maybe that's why everyone prefers them Ok , maybe not the 3 way.
  19. I dont know how the rest of you play tanker, but in my case I always hunt for tanks. The popular view of for tank haters is that all the tanks sit in the back and spam HE down the range LOL. That may be the case of tanks that have already killed their opponents, and they almost certainly have superior optics that makes aiming a mile away possible. Also with the terrain/map update some time ago reto made it so the infantry have a ton of cover to hide. And lets not forget that all that cover and bushes made it ideal to ambush out of nowhere and kill tanks with AT. There are only a few maps with locations that have very suitable terrain advantage looking at the cap point. Most of the regular tankers try supporting the infantry guys up close, but because this game being hostile, they got blown up pretty easily. Keeping that in mind, if you want to do something useful on the field, you usually wait for the other tanker to fire, so that you can locate him and kill him for good. Even better if hes spamming HE. He will be a easy target to kill, because hes to focused on aiming on the little things and has a HE loaded.

    Something like Finland maybe. They would be a subfaction that changes allegiance. But why think too deeply about this when we dont even have Brits, French, or Italians ingame, and everything feels caput
  21. Let face it. Germany is not overpopulated because everyone is german and they luv germany long time, Germany got alot of people and will always get more people because everyone knows that they have the coolest and efficient statwise equipment. Also is not strange for that type of people to target stage battles exclusively where they can seal club noobs and people that are lvling thir toons. That type of ego people play for their statistic and dont like to lose. Anyway, the all around low population on the war server is probably because is not that attractive for people to waste time there. Its slow to start, requires coordination , rewords are exp and wf that are relatively useless to a new guy. The war map is dull even for veteran players, with very limited options of control over anything. Basically its better to shoot noobs on the stage maps. It good to practice your aim!

    Basically you need to play as a tanker in paranoia mode to survive. Everyone, every solder, recon, para, even tankers themselves. If they have 2 equip point they have AT nades. Multiply that threat with planes and other enemy tanks. Is that fun gameplay?

    Tides of negativity

    Imho the game needs time to make the necessary changes/updates to fix the issues that are bugging everyone. A little bit negativity on the forums won't hurt anyone. Its better for people to pinpoint the problems, to make it absolutely clear that something is wrong and that all that crying on forums is justified. I will also say that changing shirt like headshot multiplayer, and AT prices/reload , tank exit animation/no more spawning inside a tank are things that you should not do before: You have the update ready that balances for that change,, or dont change anything it the old system that worked and noone was complaining about it.
