    Bought the pro league skins set and the sibling rivalry skin set. I might grab some of the elite skins but some of them look like crap.

    Not a big fan on BB's elite skin: the jeans really annoy me.
    Jager's flight helmet doesn't feel like that it matches with the suit.

    The only interesting ones are thermite, rook, and kapkan.

    EDIT: IIRC Ash is the only operator that has 2 elite skins.

    I got paid out for using elephant skin in one of my weapons once, LOL. Jokes in them. Anyway, ranked is a bit of a mixed bag. Some nights my team will always win, some nights the team rarely wins. Stuck in around silver star with 1.0 on both Win/Loss and Kill/Death. I’ve got enough to get 3 operators now, going to keep grinding, it’s good repeatable fun win or lose.

    Ash only has the 1.
    Thermite's is not great in game.
    Mute's is pretty cool, but I like Jager's for the animation xD

    No, she has sidewinder and black viper. I have both.

    The only real difference between the two is the webbing is skinned differently.

    Sidewinder was meant to be the one you pay for and black viper was the outbreak specific elite skin but people ended up getting both for reasons I have forgotten.

    With the toxicity and salt in game, I doubt it. LOL.

    I like it, what’s wrong with it? I like the art people do.

    All I get is down voted for stuff and it drives me nuts.

    Also, latest Nvidia driver is a bust cos it's saying my 1070 doesn't support dx11.

    Bought this a while ago but only got around to playing it yesterday. I've just done some operation missions and it seems like there's quite a bit to learn.
    Are there any particular operators i should unlock first or is it purely on preference?

    Ash is a good 3 speed.

    EDIT: downloading the TTS cos they added some buffs and nerfs. Also, they changed the UI to be like the UI in the pro league.

    For Attackers I'd suggest getting Hibana, Ash, or Thermite. They're almost always useful to have in a team, Hibana and Ash in particular are fast with great weapons, and most rounds you'll need someone as Thermite or Hibana or both. From there, just get whoever you think looks fun. Defenders I'd suggest having Rook to begin with as he has a great primary weapon (MP5 + ACOG), and an easy gadget that is useful on every map. After that, whoever you think looks fun.

    i just bought both the year 1 and 2 bundles and the year 3 pass :p

    Hibana is good but they're changing how her utility works a bit, but generally she's good because she's a 3 speed hard breacher and only really needs help from others like thatcher or twitch to get through reinforced walls.

    I agree with gregpolk, but it depends how comfortable you are in game and what type of role you would like to assume.
    Siege is broken down into specific roles, Attackers have Support, Disruption, breachers and fraggers while Defence is a bit simpler with Roamers, Anchors and I'd put entry denial/disruption in their own category since some of these ops can work well in both areas.

    For Attack, if you want to be Support for attack, take Thatcher, Twitch or IQ. They all bring something different but are all invaluable for dealing with Defender gadgets.
    For Disruption, you're looking at ops that disorient, blind or force the defenders to complete an action. They are more specialised and require coordination and skill, but when used right can win rounds outright.
    The best for these would be Zofia, Ying and Lion, if you want to take a very up close approach then Blitz is terrifying in the right hands.
    For Breachers you have 2 kinds, Soft and Hard breachers. Ash/Sledge/Buck are your primary soft breachers and at least 1 is essential, probably Ash or Sledge since they are the easiest to use.
    For hard breachers Hibana is the best, for flexibility and kit, but Thermite is by no means a bad choice and can technically open more usable entries.
    For Fraggers these are operators that are either designed for killing, or just not particularly good at the other 3 things, I'd say the best here are Glaz and Blackbeard as they are designed to just lock down and hold an angle.

    As for Defence, the best Roamers are Vigil and Jager, with Cav being very powerful in the right hands against a poorly organised team. Roaming requires a lot of confidence and patience and is high risk, high reward. I have my most Aces roaming off site and retaking. Pulse is also a great choice and is something of a 'Supporting Roamer' since he can track and callout enemy locations for other roamers.
    The best Anchors are going to be Rook, Smoke and Mira. Rook just has a decent gadget and a PHENOMENAL gun. MP5 ACOG is a monster. Smoke has a great kit with a good utility shotgun, amazing sidearm (for now) and a great plant/push denial gadget and is one of the most played ops in pro league. Mira is similar to Smoke in this regard, and a good Mira can completely shut down even a well organised attack. Echo is another option who requires a lot of skill, but is capable of fucking all the shit up and big buff for him is imminent, so if you can get good with him now you will only get better.
    Denial/disruption defenders are ops like Ela, Lesion, Frost and Kapkan. Lesion is by far and above the best and in my opinion and absolutely epic defender. His weapons, gadget and utility can allow him to control multiple lanes so you can track attacker progress and slow down their push/pull off some epic flanks. Ela was the best in the game, but since her nerf is now balanced and still formidable in the right hands. Frost and Kapkan, while I love frost, are less effective and can just be good for a laugh at stupid players, but honestly good teams make these guys fairly redundant.
    Mute and Bandit get honorable mentions for being essential to a lot of defenses, it's worth having one of these guys to deal with attacking gadgets and breaching utility.

    I know I dragged on a bit, and there are obviously heaps of other operators in the game, but a lot of them require a lot of time to perfect, like Valkyrie or Monty.
    This is all my opinion from my time with the game, and just something to keep in mind when deciding who to unlock because everyone plays differently and trying to pidgeonhole yourself to use an operator that doesn't suit your play style will just frustrate you.
    Best advise I can give it to go into the Test server, since all ops are unlocked, and just play around in terrorist hunt and get a feel for them.

    Zofia's gadget can also be used as a breaching device. It can take out Castle's armour panels and is much more quiet than Ash's breaching device.

    Thanks for the info/suggestions guys! there was a lot of useful info that will most probably require more game time to fully digest.

    I'll definitely be grabbing Hibana, Rook, Lesion and Blitz based on your recommendations.

    Rook is good for beginners because you can sit on the objective and watch with the MP5 + ACOG.

    Lesion is good cos his gu mines can indicate which position attackers are coming from as they'll explode when triggered.

    Blitz is getting nerfed because his win delta is too high at the moment.

    hibana is a good 3 speed op that can hard breach and only needs help from either thatcher or twitch to counter bandit's shock batteries if reinforced walls have those attached. The only issue is the rifle's mag size.
