God that all caps game name is annoying...

Grabbed this over the weekend and will be getting my head around it this week, mostly trying to work out the differences between it and KOTK so I know what I am doing.

Who else is still playing it around here?

Nekosan and I play pretty regularly, I suck and he mostly carries my ass (although he nearly always dies before me) - closest we've come to a duo or quad win together is second :( He's won a few solo's and duo's though with other guys we play with.

Hit us up if you see us playing, it's a good fun game but it can be frustrating sometimes just getting jacked out of no-where by camping d-bags or getting screwed over or pushed into bad locations by the zones.

Haha, using voice chat outside the game?
I will probably be on the PA Discord voice chat when I jump on

Yeah this looks fun. Is it like Battle Royal in ARMA?

I need to jump into at least 1 game tonight, see how I go...
So far played one game, where I landed near someone, ran through 1 building and got a smoke grenade, ran into a second building and got shot :(

Played a few solo games last night.
Managed to get 1 game where I got 3 kills, then got mowed down by a car...
Think I got 1 kill in every game I played, and slowly getting the hang of when to jump out of the plane, and what to do first.

I never tend to score high on the kill side of things, that's Nekosan's job, it's also probably why he dies first most of the time :lol: Although I did managed to kill a guy driving with a Micro Uzi last night, he ran Nekosan over and was coming for me, was pretty chuffed with that fine example of shooting.

You get the hang of where to land, although we both saw some pretty suspicious stuff going on last night and the night before, some teleporting and getting into gunfights that shouldn't have ended with us dead.

Not sure whether it's cheating or something to do with the server or whatever, but it's pretty frustrating.

How does it compare to Battle Royal? Better? How is the controls and gameplay in comparison? It looks like the UI is improved on ARMA's.

Yeah I heard a guy outside a building I was in, then suddenly he was in the room with me. The door was still closed though.
Luckily I had the auto shotgun and he died anyway.

Are you using the GON TS server? I might jump on if I see you are in game

Disruptor,
I never played ARMA, so can't compare to that.
Just know it is a similar play style and game.

Nice work Mini, I've pulled off a few now but it's always exciting to make it the whole way, you didn't have much health either!

I took a video last night of me pumping rounds into the back of a guy in a building through the window.. none of which did any damage at all, which was super weird.

I've been watching quite a few streams on twitch. Love it. Hopefully it's still popular enough when I get back from Europe at the end of July/start of August

It might even be in a slightly more stable position by then too.
They seem to be updating frequently, just not all the updates are tested properly.
So there are still a few bugs in game, especially with random DC's in squads

A few of the guys I play with tend to crash a fair bit, no idea as it doesn't seem to happen to me very often
