    I mean yeah, but wheres the server being hosted..??
    I'll throw bones on a 450ms ping wifi, thats to EU servers, WA to east coast is like 280-320ms and UP is like 700mb if lucky

    or I could jus write my stats now, top 10... 10/15 rounds...no wins....12 kills:tongue::tongue::tongue:
    AND...is it gonna be streamed.??

    RENEGADE-you got stuck after updates, I got stuck in the before time trying to crouch duck/walk through one of those half cut wire fences, it dipped and I got stuck and had to bail

    Had a team mate get stuck in the wall at Pecado as well as an enemy disappearing into the wall only to reappear 10 seconds later lol.
    There are also invisible walls entering some of the doors in a few places(have to crouch to get through) in Los Leons

    edit: the wait times at this time are just ridiculous for FPP
    edit2: couldnt find a game FPP so played TPP in FPP died to a cheater like usual sighh

    I've found the wait times this past week on OC for FPP aren't too bad, but mostly play squad or duo. How long are you waiting before giving up?

    Agreed. AWM is a MACHINE. I also like the para (big machinegun is it the M249?)

    I find getting to top 10 is easy, I seem to get 1-2kills consistently getting there, but struggling to convert. I'm top 5 probably every 4-5 games and still cant convert. I'm getting better and getting more kills per game, which is currently my focus to help me convert more often. I seem to play with two mindsets. Proper tactical/strategic mindset which pretty much guarantees me top 10 every time, and mucking around with mates, which seems to also guarantee me regular top 10's, even when we are being complete dickheads driving around, making shitloads of noise and running across open fields like dickheads.

    EDIT: This must sound so noob, but the UMP is one of my fav weapons. Maxxed out its crazy easy to get kills with

    I win every 4th game with 8 to 10 kills.

    Or die between 11 and 40 or so with 2 to 5 kills.

    At least 5-10 mins, It just searches and never finds a game (i play squad/1mansquad). I click TPP and its instant. This is only during the mornings though, afternoons when i play with a few mates its fine (they don't like FPP but I'm slowly converting them)

    Yeah it happens unfortunately. People generally do anything to win, having fun is somehow secondary.

    Weird. I've not noticed it take more than a minute or two usually, but maybe I play mostly at peak times. That said, TPP is always instant. I wouldn't be surprised if they eventually remove some of the FPP modes in OC because they aren't used enough.

    didnt go out for NYE, decided to try a cpl rounds.. 3 FPP solo's 3 lame deaths.. some guy camping a vehicle on edge of circle argh.. so much looting to then die so trivially is annoying at times.

    No hackers killed me at least, all seemed legit.

    Played 5 games.

    Not one game I got through without being interrupted by something :( Twice in top 10, interrupted, look away, look back, dead !

    man the games kinda changed, first few game think i went through about 6 houses no backpack or weapon, wtc withthe spawns of that, had a few games i died early, then latest i got top 4 :), hit the enemy shooting me few times but the kar finished me off. looks totally different graphically i reckon since i played a month ago. kinda like it and its more stable i reckon. only played new map once in 6 games

    Been tempted to get this but steam reviews are concerning. How bad are the ‘chinese hacker’ and lag problems (assuming it’s not your own connection)?

    Is it rare, or like every second game ?

    It is incredibly bad in third person, Since moving to first person I've come across only 1 but they do exist.
    The servers totally suck, Have some pretty bad lag during peak times as well as the occasional lag spike here and there.
    Tick rate is incredibly low for a FPS game and i think this is compounding the issue.

    Its the best gaming experience in a long time.

    Gets better every patch (overall)
