post #8681 of 9623
Im still working my way to lvl25. was hoping to be farther ahead but its been difficult finding time to play lately. I hate being stuck in vanilla mode while everyone else has moved onto ranked.

I am starting to see the need for those "one off" toons everyone is like "useless toon", sometimes its that slight difference that toon offers which is needed to break the other teams hold allowing your team to push forward. I played with a team where it was FOUR reapers and even though we were being raped they refused to switch their toons. I very much hate teammates who run out from behind my shield to insta die leaving me standing with a stupid shield.

Don't even worry about not playing ranked right now this season, competitive is a joke. People can still stack the same hero which i think ought to be disabled for competitive, then theres still the shoddy 20 tick rate, and last i played now almost a week ago the servers were far from stable and there was just massive amounts of lag.

Then when it comes to the actual ranking system, you're 100% at the mercy of your team and whether or not they're competent players that dont suck and wont rage quit, all but guaranteeing your team loses in 5v6. Your individual skill has absolutely 0 weight in determining where you are ranked and that is definitely an issue. You can be an amazing player, but if you solo q and lose a game your rank will drop harder than a sack of potatoes. Then when you win your rank will either not change as you need consecutive wins for it to move, and when it does move you'll only get like 1-2 pts, only to lose 5 points when you lose again.

Hopefully season 2 addresses these issues, and also finally introduces 60 tick rate, dying around a corner when you were clearly out of harms way, only to see the enemies killcam show you in direct sight is really really getting old.

what is this tick you are talking about? The only tick I have heard of was in destiny and I remember it fondly biggrin.gif
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I have not experinced any visual lag like rubber banding but inconsistancy in hit detection from game to game is horrible. Some games I cant miss then others its like the other person has a force field which repels my shots mad.gif

toon stacking is stupid, perhaps a damage reduction for every stacked toon on one team .... reduce damage by 50 percent or something.

No play time tonight, hopefully this weekend. I joined a Reddit PS4 team and there are a few players ive enjoyed playing with, very helpful with passing on info that I would have other wise never have know such as toons that repeal damage or return that damage back at you.

Hit boxes are rather large in comparison to a game like CS:GO, and I have a feeling that's more to do with making console gamers feel better about themselves when it comes to aiming. The biggest frustration I see in competitive is down to people who decide to play comp/ranked without a general understanding of the game. I'm more of a FPS gamer, but I realized quickly that I needed to adjust play style and apply some more patience to the game in certain situations. If I could find more competent people in general, I could live through most of the other little niggles I have with the game.

I agree with the patience part. Its not a die and then run as fast as you can back into the fight only to insta die then repeat. Look around, see if anyone will spawn with you, look for a portal device. Most these toons work better when moving in a group, each player brings something to that game the other players do not. Lone wolfs may get kills but you will not win matches lonewolfing it.

ive not played ranked yet, not high enough lvl but I would hope that by that point most peeps would understand the basic style of this game (teamplay). My crutch is the maps, I dont know them well enough yet, some I know only the main path. This is why playing with informed groups with mics is important. The quickest wins ive played is when there are people with mics who call out where the other team is coming from or they know enough to say hold a moment so you can safely clear the path vs die and have to regroup.

For anyone with PSN plus, the basic Paragon package is free. Tried it. really dont like it. I guess its not bad that its free. The gameplay and everything about it is too slow and dragged out. One match i had (against AI) lasted more than 40minutes and by half way through i just wanted it to end. It got rather boring.

"We want to make that transition as smooth as possible," Xbox Services manager Dave McCarthy told the Daily Star. "Some of our retail partners today do trade-in programs and that's definitely going to be partnerships we continue to move going forward. We'll try partnerships with our retail partners to smooth it even more with trade-in programs and things like that."

From what I gather, the article is him referencing to those retailers who already offer trade-ins. Doesn't seem like anything other than the normal promos that go on once a new system comes out.

Has anyone so far considered that the rumored "PS4 NEO" mode might be related or actually is the minimum requirement for PSVR?
Maybe someone mixed up the codenames/wording and that is why we have the rumor of PS4NEO in september when in reality it aligns pretty well with PSVR launch in october.

Last time i checked the PSVR was usable with a PS4. Unless it's been updated it will use both console versions. I however, would not recommend the standard PS4 for VR. The rumored fall release coinciding with the release of PSVR strongly makes the case for it.
