  1. PR coop maps that you hate

    It's been a while since I played Fools Road but I believe it's somewhere around here:
  2. PR coop maps that you hate

    Out of all the maps listed in the voting options, Hades Peak & Fools Road & Vadso City is the least played map on VG COOP. I can go on forever on why these maps are not very popular among regular players, but I believe all 3 maps have these characteristics in common: - Map visibility is very low, NOT because of the terrain, but because of the light setting. - Transportation is heavily relied on one asset type (i.e. Helicopters in Vadso, Jeeps in Hades peak & Fools road). - Very few heavy assets and they die rather easily (due to Anti air/tank assets as well as dark/forest setting). From my point of view, navmesh rework isn't going to make these maps popular again, but rather waste Melon and other COOP devs time and effort. I believe the best option for these maps, for the time being until something else comes along (aka night vision for infantry), is asset rework. I don't know if these make the maps play better because I haven't actually played and can't account for who is actually manning the asset, but at least it will make these maps playable, especially during low population time periods: Hades Peak - Remove AH-64 chopper, and add few armors with thermal vision (2x M1 Abrams or 2-3x M2 Bradley) - Add either 2x MH-6 Littlebirds or 1x Chinook for ease of transportation (but can be easily shot down by AAs) Fools Road: - Add 1x MH-6 Littlebird transport - Add 1x Challenger 2 tank WITHOUT thermal vision (enemies have very little anti-tank assets available) Vadso City: - 2-3x boats spawn at Airfield instead of the carrier (they rarely get used when spawning at carrier) - Fewer transport choppers, and maybe add 1x Littlebird with rocket pods - More jeeps, with 50 cal on top as a light anti-armor asset. And..... one more suggestion: Would it be possible if we change factions in each map layout? It is good to see different sections of maps being used based on which layout we're playing, but we're still playing as the same faction, fighting against the same enemies with similar assets. I know I'm not the only person who enjoyed playing as an OPFOR when it was available back then, having at least one layout on these "least popular" maps with human side playing as Russians/Insurgents/MEC fighting against common BLUFOR factions (aka Americans/British) would certainly bring more interest.
  3. World War Z is Free now

    I've been playing it for few days and it is pretty fun. If anyone wants to play together, add me on Epic Games under the same username.
  4. Canadian Kokan (CAS??) Heli

    Technically it is a CAS asset. That's how the PR developers set the asset, and that's final. Is it a CAS chopper? Sure, but with 2 side miniguns that pilot can't use. Can I transport people? Yes, but only 2 people who will be using miniguns, and no supply drop at all. Personally I wouldn't care all that much if someone makes a TRANS squad and use the asset as a light transport, or CAS squad with a transporting small squad as a side job. I've seen few regulars use the asset and get 70+ kills in a single match without dying, so it can be useful at times but under very extreme circumstances. If there's a case where someone makes a TRANS squad & take the asset, and someone creates a CAS squad and report it for being stolen, then technically CAS squad should have the priority to take the asset.
  5. Pre-built PC, should I buy this?

    Most of other deals that I listed are no longer available, and this one & Walmart HP deal are the only ones left so this should be my logical choice. However, there are Walmarts out there putting HP desktops out as a clearance for $450, and even down to $350 in some places. Therefore, I am currently waiting few more days to see if they'll go down in my region as well before I pull the trigger. Now watch this deal expire and Walmart never discount the HP around me
  6. Pre-built PC, should I buy this?

    https://www.bestbuy.com/site/cyberpowerpc-gaming-desktop-amd-ryzen-5-3600-8gb-memory-amd-radeon-rx-580-2tb-hdd-240gb-ssd-black/6362427.p?skuId=6362427 This one is priced similar to other deals, AND it has Ryzen 5 3600 in it. If Radeon RX 580 is as good as, if not better than GTX 1660, then this might be the build to go.
  7. Pre-built PC, should I buy this?

    I was initially interested in HP due to 1660 Ti being included, but other specs look lacking and upgrade looks challenging if I ever go that route. I do love CyberPowerPC build, but the problem is that it won't be shipped until Jan/Feb of 2020, which is not great as prices of parts will go lower when we hit 2020. In fact, I've been hearing rumors that Walmart did a clearance on HP desktops they stocked for last Black Friday, and sold it for really cheap to get rid of inventory. So either I will buy one of the options this week (Currently leaning towards Skytech Archangel), or wait few more weeks and get HP much cheaper down the road. Gaming will be a primary purpose of this build, but I will also use it for a "light" video editing/rendering. I am not a professional YouTuber, and 100% of videos uploaded on YouTube are taken from a phone with limited editing so it shouldn't be a big deal. I believe all of options listed above include Windows 10, so I don't need to worry about getting a license. I may add another 8GB of RAM and/or SSD/HDD since those wouldn't be as complicated as other installation process, but I haven't decided if I will actually do it yet.
  8. Pre-built PC, should I buy this?

    Both Archangel and Oracle has Ryzen 5 but Archangel has 2600X 3.6 GHz while Oracle has 2600 3.4 GHz, making it less than ideal from your point of view. The other two options have Intel CPU, but if GHz is an indicator they actually suck more than Archangel/Oracle (2.6 GHz) Black Friday deals come and go and there were few other options that are no longer available/relevant now. These are the best options I can find so far and I don't know if they'll be available when I go to sleep in few hours and wake up tomorrow morning. Maybe Cyber Monday will have a better deal but if not I need to choose soon before the train leaves.
  9. Pre-built PC, should I buy this?

    I found more options, but I think these have their own pros as well as cons: HP: https://www.walmart.com/ip/HP-Pavilion-Gaming-Desktop-Tower-Intel-Core-i5-9400F-NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-1660Ti-8GB-RAM-256GB-SSD-690-0073w/902037635 Pro: Slightly cheaper, upgrade from 1660 to 1660Ti. Con: 256 GB SSD vs 500 GB SDD (Skytech Oracle) or 240GB SSD w/ 1TB HDD (CyberpowerPC) Skytech Archangel: https://www.google.com/shopping/product/10838364651746331194?psb=1&tbm=shop&prds=epd%3A267462447146436244%2Cprmr%3A3%2Crs%3A1&ved=0CCYQiM4BKAFqFwoTCLXjw5y-kOYCFUSApwodSUkPGBAu&utm_source=affiliate_CJ&utm_medium=1122587_cj_4485850&utm_campaign=Deep+Link&utm_content=13713149 Pro: Better motherboard/CPU (according to internet), more RAM Con: $73 more than Skytech Oracle
  10. Pre-built PC, should I buy this?

    Yo, Some of you might know this already, but for those of you who are unaware, that I do not have a PC that can run games that are ever so slightly demanding, aka any decent games that came out in last 5 years or so. To help you better understand, my current PC/Desktop is..... 1) Literally bought from a store that sells office-oriented supplies/computers, 2) Therefore NOT built for gaming, and 3) Been using it for almost 6-7 years at this point. Due to the nature of where this PC came from, running old and not-so-demanding games like PR and Insurgency can be a struggle-fest, and I had to resort to play these games in the lowest setting possible (and even then I do have frame drops here and there). I do use this PC for other purposes such as video editing and watching movies, and I've been frustrated lately due to how sluggish and slow it became in last few months. So, now, onto the topic: I wasn't really planning on buying a PC this week, but I was casually browsing a website and saw these deals. Skytech Oracle: https://www.google.com/shopping/product/11729696851188733993?psb=1&tbm=shop&prds=epd%3A13459610525245923212%2Cprmr%3A3%2Crs%3A1&ved=0CCYQiM4BKAFqFwoTCPCGtbSphOYCFc7N4wcdWBcCdBA1&utm_source=affiliate_CJ&utm_medium=1122587_cj_4485850&utm_campaign=Deep+Link&utm_content=13713149 CyberpowerPC: https://www.amazon.com/CYBERPOWERPC-Xtreme-i5-9400F-GeForce-GXiVR8060A8/dp/B07VGJDKZ4?tag=slickdeals&ascsubtag=8d12bda6131611eaa3403a4e4378d8700INT&ref_=Oct_DLandingS_D_466a83d5_63&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER Before you say anything, let me clarify you on one thing. I know building PC is what everyone does, and even kids from elementary schools can do it nowadays. I am aware the fact that I can build a PC with similar parts or specs from the links above and come out cheaper. However, I suck at building anything in general (and I learned this from building something as simple as AR-15 lower parts kit), and have never done one before. I also do not have any friends who live near and can help me with building a PC as well as do a troubleshooting if I screw things up (which is bound to happen). Right now, the only help I can get is from listening feedback from you guys who know this S#!T and can guild me. So, I've been looking around and 2 options from above sound like a good deal that doesn't suck and not a outright rip-off. I am planning to spend around $700 for a PC that I would like to play AAA games at a MEDIUM-HIGH-ULTRA settings depending on how demanding it can be. In addition, I do plan on using the rig for video/picture editing, watching movies, but that would be it. The first link comes out to around $670 after the tax and shipping, and second one is a little cheaper ($655) with all things considered. So, what do you guys think about these two options? Should I do with one of those, or do you know any PRE-BUILT PC around the same price range that is much better? Thank you for your feedback!
  11. COOP PvP ?

    I have played, in the past, other servers that lets you switch sides and play with a bot against human. The best thing about it is that you get to surprise human opponents with flanking/maneuver/ambush. The worst thing about is that you get to experience the same thing from the other side and can die very often. Let's give you an example on a map that everyone loves: Muttrah City: 1) Were you ever frustrated with anti-air asset while you're on TRANS/CAS? Well now we have an anti-air asset that can literally go anywhere in the map and hide in any building they choose. The days of you not needing to worry about getting shot down while hovering over North City is officially over. Sure, you can dodge a heat-seeking missile with a well-placed flare, but do note that countermeasures do not work against bullets (especially heavy calibers like 12.7mm, 14.5mm, and 20mm). 2) If you have gotten killed by a mortar and thought "this is not annoying whatsoever," prepare to be bombarded with HE/Airburst. Were you annoyed by someone popping smoke and you get shot because you couldn't see? Prepare to be shot, in many occasions, in the head by a dumb bot with a pistol across the map. Also, have you ever used mortar and felt it was boring and tedious? Well, now you get to experience what is like to be counter-mortared and lose all of deployables you just built. 3) Riding a Humvee/AMTRAC/LAV-25 and constantly get annoyed because your vehicle gets hit by a LAT kit and disable? Well, you don't need to worry no more because HAT kit makes you die instantly so you don't have to worry about waiting for those dumb logi trucks to bring a repair station to you. By the way, have I mentioned that you can also spawn with a combat-engineer kit and lay anti-tank mines around for easy kills? You better start looking the surface of the road you're about to cross carefully. Unfortunately, enemy bots with LAT kits wouldn't be so kind to wait for you to look them up before they destroy your vehicle. 4) I love the smell of claymores in the morning, especially when they're placed on T-shaped buildings. 5) Snipers....... nuff said. If you played CO-OP events before, you should know that there are few key admins who are on the bot side to make sure the event goes smoothly. They are not allowed to directly involved in combat unless necessary, and even then it could be frustrating at times. Imagine having those players have no rules of engagement whatsoever, and the only limitation they have are their creative imaginations. It only takes one or two with a decent skill/knowledge and access to good equipment to ruin everyone's day. I'm all for playing such events, as COOP is getting bored without a major update, but please understand..... There are reasons why people play CO-OP instead of Deployment. I hope people know what they're getting themselves into before they bring Deployment to CO-OP.
  12. Guns and Ammo

    I have plenty of guns and ammo to go around, I am seriously lacking in food now. If you bring food, I'll let you in. I'm actually planning to buy a PPK sometime in near future. I had a chance to buy PP, but decided not to. I would love to buy a WW2 PPK with Nazi eagle stamp, but boi they are EXPENSIVE. You've known me for god knows how long, and you JUST realized I'm crazy? Man I'm disappointed in you. It's actually a .22 replica, and the silencer/suppressor is fake. So even if it looks quiet it is still NOT hearing safe.
  13. Guns and Ammo

    I know everyone's trying to post something funny, but I'm going to be that guy and actually talk about my guns. Why? Because I like to brag about stuff and this is the only thing in my life I can brag about. In the last 5 years I've been working really hard on expanding my collection and feel comfortable showing them off without having someone chime in and tell me how poor and cheapskate I am (and it happened before). And before you go further, people have told me that I have/bought too many guns and I should talk to an counselor, psychologist, or something, so get in line if you want to tell me what I've been hearing about in last 5 years LOL. Well... without a further ado, here are my collection (name, caliber, country of origin below the photos): IMI Desert Eagle (.357 Mag, Israel) GSG M1911A1 (.22 LR, Germany) Colt M1911 (.45 ACP, USA) Ballester Molina (.45 ACP, Argentina) Luger P08 (9mm, Germany) S&W M&P M2.0 (9mm, USA) Glock 19 Gen.4 (9mm, Austria) Daewoo DP-51 (9mm, Republic of Korea) CZ 82 (9mm Makarov, Czech Republic) Makarov PM (9mm Makarov, Bulgaria) No.4 Mk.I Lee-Enfield (.303 British, United Kingdom) Zastava M98/48, aka Kar-98k (8mm Mauser, Germany/Yugoslavia) Type 99 Arisaka (7.7mm JAP, Japan) (1) M1941 Johnson (.30-06, USA) (2) M1941 Johnson (.30-06, USA) Springfield Armory M1 Garand (.30-06, USA) Saginaw/General Motors M1 Carbine (.30 Carbine, USA) (1) Type 56 SKS (7.62x39mm, China) (2) Type 56 SKS (7.62x39mm, China) PSL (7.62x54mm R, Romania) (1) AR-15 (5.56mm, USA) (2) AR-15 (5.56mm, USA) Century Arms/PTR C93 Sporter (5.56mm, USA) Arsenal SGL-21-63 (7.62x39mm, Russia) IWI Galil ACE (7.62x39mm, Israel) D-Technik/Czechpoint vz.58 Sporter (7.62x39mm, Czech Republic) MOLOT Vepr-12 (12 Gauge, Russia) Mossberg M590 (12 Gauge, USA) Winchester Model 1200 Defender (12 Gauge, USA) Mossberg M590 Shockwave "Not-a-Shotgun" (12 Gauge, USA) Beretta Cx4 Storm (9mm, Italy) Kel-Tec SUB-2000 Gen.2 (9mm, USA) IMI Uzi Model B (9mm, Israel) The photos are taken earlier this year and I've acquired few additional guns. Here are my recent purchases: S&W Model 10-5 (.38 Special, USA) S&W Model 5906 (9mm, USA) Beretta Model 81 "Cheetah" (.32 ACP, Italy) Pistolet automatique modèle 1935A (7.65x20mm, France) IWI Tavor SAR (5.56mm, Israel) Kel-Tec RDB (5.56 mm, USA) H&K/Walther MP5 SD (.22 LR, Germany) AR-15 "Pistol" (5.56mm, USA) If you counted all of them, it should come out to 42 guns (22 Rifles, 14 Pistols, 1 Revolver, and 5 Shotguns). Technically I have 43 but the last one (M70B1, aka Yugoslavian AK-47) is still in a local gun shop waiting to be picked up and I have not taken a photo of it yet. For those of you who're curious, I have purchased 16 guns this year, which is a surprise even from myself. I have bought 9 guns in 2018, and 9 guns in 2017, so this year marks the year when I bought the most amount of guns (not to mention how much I spent as well). Oh and one more thing..... If you want to see these guns in action, check out my YouTube channel. https://www.youtube.com/zzang1847 And no, I'm not trying to promote my channel or make money out of it. No need to subscribe, and feel free to use AdBlock if needed.
  14. LemurLemur

    Who's this FNG? I don't think I ever heard of this guy. If you're new to the server and website, make sure to read the rules and listen to admins like it's a gospel. I DO agree with him regarding how slutty Melon is, though. Call me.
