  1. Main news on may 9

    AN94 hackers are not that common and aren't much of a nuisance; in normal, though, you have to fight not only hackers but "legit hackers" (high sp players).... no point going back there, except when I miss the animations. Used PDR a lot, works nice early ingame, it's sort of a mini P90 (devgru, we need WC for you!). Try MDRC, it's a slightly improved PDR. Wouldn't mind a historically inaccurate WC for them... they have always been collectible guns (fancy name for useless guns) and that could help see them used more often. And some buff, too.
  2. Main news on may 9

    Gotta admit I still have some kind of hope that WC will reach more guns than those announced... Also, for those of us who stayed long enough to grab all GP guns... why not offer perming discounts? Devs get another cash income, CR snipers are usable, VSS becomes even better, only drawback is AN94 hackers staying more matches in a row.
  3. Main news on may 9

    Nice to know there is an upcoming update! However, despite following the trend, it's bittersweet news: New WC, great. I'm fine with mp7 and sr2m (I didn't complete wtask expecting WC to use the grind), but the rest are irrelevant. What the heck, I'd simply make a "generic shitty sidegun metatree" for all these never-used pistols. Gsh18, an94, devgru, gold akms (no sights on muzzle please)...they could all be awesome with WC if stats and VR stay equal, yet it never comes. No bug fix, and I'm not even talking about visual ones, but those that really screw gameplay. Hope this WC doesn't add new ones. What is worse, no hacker countermeasures. Even in HC it's hard to find a match were some SA kid with no votes is prokilling the whole enemy team full of veterans. Free GP and such is nice (those of us with ww2 guns could use some weird ass cammo or GP ) but, as usual, it's sad that no SP cap is implemented to prevent top p2w players becoming gods amongst mortals. Yes, it's money coming towards devs, but at the same time this kinda makes f2p leave (which are probably the majority of players), killing the future of the game (the fun of having shitloads of SP is playing against those of us that don't, not against another +200SP semigod). It's kind like diverting the whole river to grow crops and make instant profit, only to find that years later you have no river and nothing to grow (Aral sea reference). Make a SP cap, and give p2w something that makes the feel special but gives no ingame advantatge; like unicorn suit and moustache cammo, glow in the dark guns, dildo shaped knifes, rainbow nicknames... Was expecting that.
  4. Spec guns - Which ones and why?

    I know barely anyone reads these forums, but even then... New update. I got Vikhlop! So how does it feel? Pros: silent and powerful. Decent mobility (for a sniper). Biggest magnification ingame (if I rememeber well from VItaly's post). Recoil and handling feels quite nice. Cons: noncompetitive anywhere but in huge ass maps. Terrible grind for decent snipes/scopes. In other words, it's just like I remembered it. Don't take me wrong; it's a very good sniper (at this time probably the best bolt action sniper, or BAS). But that's too little for the game standards. As I said before, BAS are just underpowered because if you miss your first shot (not just by luck of accu, but lag plays an important role too) even the crappiest gun will kill you before being able to fire again. Even if you nail that shot, it's not always a guaranteed kill. And at longer ranges, where you might have an edge, the frequent reload keeps you at disadvantage too. Being quite silent is a plus, but not a game breaker. At longer ranges it's not that necessary, and at closer ones the slow firerate and frequent reloads compensate for it. That's why, unless you go at extreme ranges (if anyone still plays those kind of maps, btw), where scope is a necessity and damage drop renders all other guns useless, you will be outgunned. At closer ranges, you can do well if you are one of those unbearable players that climb a tree and spend the match there, placing careful shots. But then again, dtsrs2 or any silenced carbine would work even better. IMHO, to make this gun competitive they should make it one hit kill even with VIPs and speed up all processes (aim, reload, firerate). But maybe it's just me, because I suck at sniping and have a poor connection. The terrible collimators available at first don't help nail your shots, either. But it's quite a disappointment when a customized tier 1 TKPD works much better than the spec gun equivalent. As for the other guns, my opinion stays the same. Vity and PKP are the only true spec guns (vity rocks with kemper btw), mod3 is quite nice but not outstanding, the rest are fun but not competitive. How I wish I had experienced that... Doesn't matter which way the saiga fa was pointing at, it felt a lot noisier than effective. Even regular saiga outperforms it at anything but cqb. Still, it's so damn fun when you learn to use it; don't spray at sight, rather flank a lot, rush and just spray at really cqb. Cost per gun assuming no other skills (=from beginning of class), using the outdated calculator site (perhaps a few numbers are wrong)=: TT: 23 SP, 250 GP Mp5 spec: 11 SP Vityaz: 22 SP, 455 GP (+11 SP, +455GP from mp65 spec) Mod3: 29 SP, 635 GP Saiga FA: 32 SP, 1135 GP (same meta as mod3) PKP: 33SP, 880 GP Vikhlop: 29 SP, 605 GP Uzi: 16 SP, 155 GP
  5. Spec guns - Which ones and why?

    The event granted some GP, so I went the assault route and here's a quick update: Vity: still didn't reach kemper (using comp4 right now), but I can already tell it's a top gun. Just what I said, but now it's even easier to use. Fast, comfortable, fun.. win win! PKP: wtask is... meh. You trade mob (the few you have left) for an average magnification and a shaky screen. But I still have faith that, with WC, you could turn it into a FA sniper (with a scope) or just clean maps with silencer+kemper. As I said, this guns feels more powerful than any other, but you must get used to it's bulkiness to be competitive. Mod3: my fears were confirmed. Yes, it's a very good AR, it's fun to use and it sounds sorta like sr3m (a plus for me). But that's it. It's not a top AR (a spec gun should be IMHO). WC is irrelevant on it (no muzzles and no real improvement besides kemper) and it's way too shaky; lacks refiniment. I have the feeling it's a tier 4-5 gun. They should buff pen, accu and even dmg, and above all make recoil minimal to take it back to where it belongs. It should be mod3>sa58>mdr, not the other way around. Saiga FA: after unending and unnecesary nerfs cried for by abusive noveske users (newbies never knew those times), it lacks killing power. Yeah, a lot of boom boom, but good luck downing someone in evac hangar from side to side; way too much dmg drop and spread to be effective, rendering this gun useless beyond cqb and anything except flanking like map and clearing spawns. Still, it's so damn fun.... wtask seems useles like all slug ammo (not unlocked yet), but who knows, maybe with WC, flechette ammo and kemper it gets a subtle improvement. As for the next gun, it will take a while. Vikhlop, if I ever get the remaining SP and some extra GP. In other case, mp5spec (just for the achievement)...
  6. 8th anniversary of Absolutsoft (promo code)

    Quite possibly the first time devs made an active effort to listen to playerbase. OFC, maybe I'm too optimistic and they just pick last 3 entrances without even looking.

    Really? Press F8 key (around the top middle part of most keyboards and paste the text between ##: #promo 5QKTQ-OFVNF-9C8AS-T4QOX-TW4SM# Can't believe I'm even saying this....
  8. 8th anniversary of Absolutsoft (promo code)

    Well done Fluffy! Nice to see an "event" (and a generous one!) once in a while! Good birthday absolusoft and hope one day you'll listen just a little bit to those who feed you and help you make it to the decade. I'm just unsure about the increased SP chance. Besides the odd SP the random player might get, since there's no SP cap it seems like only rich players will benefit from it bypouring a shitload of GP into spins to get a fulll skillset. Ps1. Free gun bonus grants first available gun by tier, I think. Ps2. Would be nice to have perming discounts every now and then.
  9. Spec guns - Which ones and why?

    So I just remade my tree, got PKP and Vity. Basically, they work as I expected them: Vity: very agile in every way, quite powerful, very nice metatree... certainly a great gun. Feels like a top AR.. PKP: so much fun to play with, hoping WC reaches it because it can only improve. Feels like a walking sentry gun; cumbersome and slow (still have to get used to that), but extremely accurate and deadly. Mows vips like butter. I'm thinking about the next one. Saiga? Mod3? Vikhlop?
  10. Chatter topic

    The problem was clear after the 1st pic... Happens the same to me; sometimes a player gets his name all over the scoreboard in the place of other players. I often think (grab tin foil hat) these kind of subtle bugs could be the byproduct of 3rd party programs messing with CW, Or maybe it's just the buggy code after all.
  11. Victory Day "event" and promocode

    Will Unity day, on November 4, be the next event till christmas? Or have devs ditched CW altoghether?
  12. Technical support

    Mine now loads all stuff quickly, but takes a lot longer than usual to load both the game and the profile, still don't know why (no changes on my side AFAIK).
  13. Spec guns - Which ones and why?

    Well, it seems I can now get both Vity and PKP. I'm retained to do so by 2 factors: 1) Skilltree: not the best now, and will probably be idiotic if I get both guns. But I guess it's just a matter of accepting it, since I play HC mostly (and would probably need a shitton of SP to be decent in normal either). 2) Alternatives: I'm curious about mod3, saiga and vykhlop. Dunno how they fare /will do with WC, but I guess they're pretty average since they're seldom seen now. (BTW; if anyone can post the metatree for vykhlop it would be awesome). PS: imperfection, mp5 spec wouldn't be great no matter how; is a fun but impractical gun. It tends to waste ammo easily (hi FR) and needs HS to be effective (low dmg). Yes, with proper hitreg and a stealh flanking play it could be a beast, but then you've got plenty of other options too (HK417, MDRC, for example).
  14. Technical support

    I've logged in after a couple of weeks off and I've noticed that most attachments and cammo don't load (spinning arrows for the first, blank spaces for the latter). It used to take a few seconds to load, now I can play 2 matches and cammo still hasn't loaded up. Oh, and the game seems slower, but that seems hard to tell from before. Anyone experiencing this?
  15. Spec guns - Which ones and why?

    I was expecting your answer, but not that ode to gsh. Yup, I said it many times; it's the best allround sidegun and WC can only make it better (fingers crossed). What about the other guns, though? It's hard to decide how they work and if the shitload of SP and GP is worth it. I couldn't even find metas or videos for newer WCed spec guns.
