  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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!
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. New PR WW2 is out now!

  12. Following squad leader orders

    I happened to be in THAT squad in THAT game on THAT day. The person in question argued with me and squad leader that he wasn't violating the rules because 1) Airport flag is not considered as enemy's main base, and 2) There is no rule in the server that states that spawn camping is prohibited. Well..... In case you've been living under a rock, the last flag enemy can spawn (aka MEC Airbase) IS considered as a Main Base, and spawn camping is a Kickable/Bannable offense if they do not comply with Admin's warning. As a result, he was given a warning twice before kicked by myself and later he came back and called me "Badmin" for enforcing the rules. Well let's just say that I don't care how he feels about what happened that day because there's nothing he can do about it . With that out of the way, disobeying squad leader is not a PR COOP Rule Violation, but as a squad leader you're more than entitled to kick that person off from your squad. YOU lead the squad and YOU are the person in charge, therefore you have a right to kick someone off from your squad for whatever reason you see fit. It might be a good idea to have a legitimate reason why you don't want that person in your squad, like "He's not following my orders" or "He's grabbing kits that i told him not to" or "He sucks at gunning/flying/driving," and etc. You may be fine without having a proper reason, but then it becomes a headache that I or anyone would rather not deal with. If the person who was kicked from the squad was driving/flying/manning a claimable asset squad and refuse to leave the asset, then report to the admins that he was 1) Kicked from the squad, and 2) The person is refusing to leave the asset. If they are given a warning by an admin and still refuse to leave the asset, then they'll be kicked repeatedly until they're banned from the server. If we go down that route, they can come here and complain about it all the time but only thing they can do is either make your own server with your own rules or get a SSD so they can join faster than everybody. By the way, if they INTENTIONALLY crash/waste whatever asset they're manning, let us know and that person will be banned from the server until further notice. I don't care how long it takes for that particular asset to respawn. You don't get to do $H!T like that and walk away without any consequences, period.
  13. Hello there

  14. Are bots too easy?

    If a map you're playing is too easy, run harder maps. If a map you're playing is too hard, run easier maps. Here are maps that I find it to be rather difficult to play unless we have 40 "GOOD" players to play with: 1. Korengal Valley STD 2. Tad Sae Offensive ALT 3. Beirut ALT 4. Lashkar Valley STD 5. Battle of Ia Drang STD/ALT 6. Kozelsk STD/ALT 7. Fools Road STD 8. Yamalia STD 9. Charlie's Point STD 10. Shahadah STD Like Keed mentioned, there is a very thin line between game being too easy and too hard. Most of players enjoying the VG server do not join because they want to torture themselves, being killed by a bot across the field over and over again. If you want to walk 20 min from the main base just to get shot by a bot that you didn't see coming, there are plenty of games out there waiting for you. As much as I hate to admit, CO-OP, for the most part, is used for players to just have fun and learn the mechanics of PR. This is not the first time when someone came to the forum and start suggesting of difficulty tweaks, and over the years I have lost many players who I knew very well and played hundreds of hours together because they no longer find this server/game to be fun. When there are hundreds, if not thousands of games that you can enjoy now, why would you go over this discussion multiple times, which will most likely end up with name calling and childish insults, just so we get to play same maps that we played last night? Most of people here who state their opinions about the game probably have spent more minutes than we should've. Heck, I have spent over 2000 hours on this game alone and I don't see me stopping anytime soon. For those of us who spent quite a lot of time, of course this game is becoming easier the more we play. You give me 7 players who will actually listen to what I tell them to do, and I'll capture all the flags down to South City on Muttrah regardless of how high AI difficulty is set. However, we are NOT the only people playing in the sever, and while their voices might not be louder than what we have, their side of the situation must be considered as well. I don't want to make this post longer than my college essay (which already is), so I will say this like I have said many times before: I would rather have the map finished in 20 minutes than stuck on the flag for 1-2 hours, resulting most of player base leaving and me running the easier/popular maps just so we can repopulate the server.
  15. H8CrazyVet67

    I don't think anyone here, including myself, saw this coming because we would've done anything and everything we could if we knew what was going through his mind before making the decision like this. I didn't notice anything out of ordinary of him the last time I played with him and couldn't believe what I saw. There is no doubt that this is a great loss for the VG community and a time to grieve, but I would like to take a time to remind everyone that we're here to help you if you are having any thought of self-harm or perhaps something worse. Probably the best suggestion I can give is to seek professional help but I've seen and heard people tend not to talk about sensitive topics like this due to an unwarranted fear that others will either ridicule or avoid him/her. However, let me tell you that THAT'S NOT TRUE. We're more than just random people playing the video game with you. The moment you joined this forum you became a part of the family, which means we CARE ABOUT YOU and will do ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING to help you go through perhaps the hardest part of your life. If you don't want to publicly talk about what you're going through, then feel free to message any of us and we will gladly either talk to you privately on Teamspeak/Skype and other means necessary. If you're having a financial crisis and need an extra hand, then just reach out and we will do a small, but efficient fundraising campaign to ease the situation for you. If you just need someone to stay with you and make you feel like loved and cared, let us know and we might even arrange a small hangout! Don't ever think you're alone in this world and there is nothing you can do to about it. The only thing we're going to need is for you to share what you're going through. Please don't make a decision that is not reversible, not only because it is going to hurt you but also it is going to give a scar to everyone around you. And no, that scar isn't going to go away anytime soon. H8CrazyVet67, if you're seeing this I hope you remember us as a part of giant family and know we wished nothing but the best for you. Your may never play with us ever again but don't want you to think we will somehow forget about you. Every time we play Muttrah we will think about your awful Humvee driving skills. Every time we use !admins command we will be reminded of how much of an empty space you've left for us. Every time we need medic we will remember how efficient you were. Every time we make a crude joke we will know that we no longer have you. No matter what happens, you will be always be in our heart, and we will miss you buddy. And hopefully, in one day, I get to see you again. Sincerely, ZZANG1847
