  1. I'm not understanding the why they would do it either unless it is related to PvP/Global Ops which is a real possibility now.
  2. Keep in mind something: That spreadsheet that I was referring to was an aid to help in calculation of how many battles you needed to get in to get to a certain level. The time spent in the match was the only real time metric discussed. So it took a run down average of the matches you were in, how many battle coins you made per match, and time per match and it was used to help do the calculations. I have not seen a solid description of what the BC's are based off of and what percentage. I want to say the effective combat time is a better gauge based on what I've seen.
  3. Computer prices are insane right now. Through a few vendors I've used in the past, I can't get down below a certain price point so I'll wait for a bit.
  4. If you are referring to how many BC's you get are calculated, the spreadsheet that came out several BP's ago said that it was the time spent in the match.
  5. I played with it a bit last night. To me, for all the hype that it got it is not as great everyone thought it would be. It has some good damage output but its lack of defensive ability means you have to depend on positioning, and with positioning you have to pay attention to the map you are on.
  6. Sorry but this is more of a vent than anything. Why on earth did someone think that changing some of how finding decals or camo was a good idea? If you make a change to the UI, make it so that the UI is more usable, not something like this attached picture. It was a pain to find something before, but now there is little to no rhyme or reason to how this is done. Patch notes, I never saw this in the patch notes.
  7. When it comes to programming, I have always associated time as a significantly more costly resource that money. It hard for me to understand they why that resource would be spent in some ways towards something like a skin which must have taken a ton of time and from what I've read about the Hades skins it really isn't a texture as much as a whole new vehicle and used for other things that could be more of an improvement in the game. The last ones looked far better than the previous ones but I guess SS's response summed it up about just how hard it was to accomplish.
  8. https://aw.my.games/en/news/general/vehicles-focus-leopard-2a7-140 Then what is this then? I know, because I played the crap out of it when I got it until it got the heck nerfed out of it because it was the only thing that could counter the T-14 when it came out.
  9. Now, that is funny because they did in the beginning allow for user uploaded battalion logos. They were screened for things that were "offensive" in nature. They did say at one point that there would be more logos added. This whole thing has been going on like the whole Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck "NO! It's rabbit season!" scene and has always been an argument since the first night of beta. For the longest time if you were in the garage your GPU ran at 100% power and 100% load even in the simple garage. You could even dial your settings down and the game would stumble along. One of the guys I played with had a rig that could rock out Crysis/BF/CoD with every setting set to max with zero issues, but having settings in AW to the modest middle of the road settings he couldn't hit anything that was moving because it was so bad. No, it was a PC issue. The last time I saw anything from support about it something in a patch had changed and I couldn't get my frame rate out of the teens and I was told to install the latest video drivers. When pressed to tell me which one they recommended they said it was the latest ones but the version number they posted was one about 6 months old. It is a lost battle. I hope that its not the original 2A7 that was in the game before the 2AX. I loved the 2A7 and played the hell out of it. If they add it back in I'll be very upset about it.
  10. Well, this is par for the course. Not sure how much more they can bugger this up.

    Cyberpunk 2077

    When it was announced that the MW5 update was delayed due to it being released on the same day as Cyperpunk I was a bit upset about it because they said that they didn't want competition to ruin the release. For a while I thought about actually getting it and "branching" out in a direction to try something new and Cyperpunk came up. I am SOOO glad I didn't. After seeing what is happening I do hope that the issues get resolved and it can be all that it was hyped up to be. But in the mean time, the person going up the stairs with no animations was the nail in the nope coffin.
  12. What this could be directed at is a player that has the BC's building up but nothing to spend it on. At the surface yeah its a bad deal, however if they crank out that many BC's because it is something they want because they don't have the gold then the BC's start to look like a really good deal.
  13. You know you are talking about the same developers that can't get patch notes out before a release right?
  14. There are some things in the first mission that need to be fixed. Comments about the ease of the mission due to the tiers have already been noted There is a lack of clarity about what the caps in the beginning of the match are about. I didn't know what it was until Haswell's post. The flow of the entire mission is hectic and the flow of it from start to finish shows You have a medium size area that everyone stumbles over each other trying to get through to funnel into a small corridor that looks like its 2 wide but reality only fits 1 wide to advance forward due to the amount of "debris" present. Much like having to go through a turn stile This was an okay-ish mission, but not one that I would want to deal with having to stumble my way through for the however many times to get all the missions related to it completed.
  15. Did they put the patch out yet? I'm getting a game client versus server client different and there is no download option.
  16. Let's look at it from another stand point: You have a new player that is dealing with trying to grind out a vehicle that sucks. They are just 1 win away from having the XP needed to upgrade something or get out of it completely. Then insert into that last match someone with this mentality. About a third of the time with a new player and someone with this mentality in a match yeah you get by but its rough. Add in one of those horrible maps and another player and it turns into a loss. A loss results in hardly enough XP for them to advance. So now you have a new player that didn't get the XP needed and has to do that "one last match" all over again. That closed minded mentality of "good enough is good enough" can have a trickle affect. Now that new player is hating life a hair bit more because maybe they don't have time, and then and then and then. Sometimes it might be good for you but what about the others around you? How far does this attitude carry down the line with other people and impact them? I have intentionally tanked matches before to get even with someone for being "unsportsmanlike". How did I do it? Just like Haswell suggested.
  17. So what you are saying is that for those of us that want to do well, be team players and strive to be better/improve over the last match or just overall, you are exerting the minimal amount of effort to support yourself at the expense of us?? I understand things like the phone rings and it is the significant other. I understand things like "OMG! My kids just did something stupid gotta go!". I understand that every now and then I have to pick up my pace when others are having bad nights, and likewise others have to pick up my slack when I am having one. Life happens. What you are suggesting is so fundamentally wrong at the core of it that it is hard to fathom that someone would suggest doing this, much less actually doing it. If you are suffering from burn out like I have with AW, find something else other than AW. Burnout right now in this screwed up world is not healthy.
  18. Sounds like a remnant from the beginnings of AW where in the garage you could have 100% GPU usage and a very low CPU utilization then when you go into battle things got back to a sane level of usage for your setup. There are still some times the fans on my video card in the garage will spool up and then cycle back down for some strange reason.
  19. Don't get me wrong, there is a huge appeal to a crock pot because of that very thing you mentioned. But when you're craving something like a pot roast or pulled pork/chicken and its something that you have to have that moment is where the InstantPot works miracles. What I've seen is that it is on par with a crock pot as far as flavor goes. There are things it can't do sometimes that a good 12 hour simmer in a crock pot does well. The biggest issue I have is living alone so when I cook either I have to make something that lasts for a week or I do a small batch of something to last me a few days. Today after work I'm getting about 3 pounds of chicken and some BBQ sauce to do pulled chicken in the InstantPot. Cut it up into small quarter pound chunks and braze them in a cast iron with olive oil and garlic, then drop them in the pot for about 20 minutes with about a cup of sauce and a 1/4 to 1/2 cup of water. OR the alternate is about a cup of chicken broth and you mix in the sauce afterwards in a container of your choosing. Serve up on a nice sesame bun with some slaw.
  20. I have an old crock pot that I use sometimes because it's nice to throw it on before work and come home to a nice stew or chili. Then I discovered an InstantPot and all that crock pot does now is collect dust.
  21. Going through some of this, I just keep in that December 10th, the new DLC for MW5 comes out. I know where I'll be at on December 11th. Now there is a new battle path with "MOAR DAKKA DAKKA". A Shilka (to be honest I'm surprised that it wasn't one of the first tanks ever added to the game), a modified BMP-3 (now with MORE MISSILES!), a mini-me version of the T-15, and then something else with a 152mm in the form a huge Russian MBT? Something I enjoyed getting 033'd from the previous battle path makes it really hard to want to be excited about this new battle path.
  22. When you get stuff like this, it makes it hard to not want to call them what they are:
  23. I have never understood why an as-designed IFV is classed as a TD in Armored Warfare.
  24. It's like the Comic Sans font....just because you can doesn't mean you should.
