I dare you to make a playthrough of the game @warmaster2143 and post it on your youtube channel

2019-10-22 16:15:26 UTC  

Though you'd probably need to do a lot of cuts since the game doesn't hold your hand whatsoever. So you'll probably stumble around not knowing what to do in certain parts.

Laughed my arse off at the Jan part

2019-10-22 20:36:41 UTC  

Long interview but boy oh boy is it good to see the ANC being laughed at on the international stage...

2019-10-22 20:43:41 UTC  

you should watch kaaplander

2019-10-22 20:43:58 UTC  

Seen his channel though it was removed from youtube recently.

2019-10-22 22:16:27 UTC  

oh it was

2019-10-23 07:50:46 UTC  

Have you all played Hell Let Loose?

I'm interested in it, but worried it's going to share the same fate as Post Scriptum and not have high-pop servers

2019-10-23 08:29:19 UTC  

imho the only point where its superior to PS atm is visuals.
The maps look damn good. Lekker to stay in theme. ;)

From a gameplay standpoint i'm pretty disappointed.
Sound is extremely thin, and nearly impossible to locate.
Gunplay is .... sluggish and feels early 2000s.
Teamplay is pretty meh, the game attracted tons of people that don't have or want to use a mic.
The current meta is to suicide your entire Squad when youre not in the thick of the fight.

2019-10-23 08:30:05 UTC  

I backed their campaign early, so i'll look into it from time to time, but from a pure enjoyment per match perspective i'd rather fire up PS at 20:00 and get a good match out of it.

2019-10-23 09:41:29 UTC  

Thanks for the perspective, that helps a lot

2019-10-23 11:26:02 UTC  

"Teamplay is pretty meh, the game attracted tons of people that don't have or want to use a mic."

Squad has attracted the same kind of people recently.... Grinds my fokken bones playing with that lot.

2019-10-23 11:26:41 UTC  

Can't stand playing in Squad where half the squad is silent and all around the map doing their own thing.

2019-10-23 11:26:45 UTC  

seems like Apex is for you then cause no one has a mic lol

2019-10-23 11:26:53 UTC  

Fuck that.

2019-10-23 11:27:02 UTC  

Excuse my German

2019-10-23 11:27:11 UTC  

Fuck Apex. Worst game I've played in a while

2019-10-23 11:27:19 UTC  

Excuse your German too

2019-10-23 11:27:30 UTC  

its oky im pretty good at it lol

2019-10-23 11:27:58 UTC  

Fick das Spiel und die Entwickler, die es gemacht haben!

2019-10-23 11:28:06 UTC  

but it has its bugs and stuff that make me wanna burn my pc

2019-10-23 11:42:58 UTC  

Yea, Squad has really seen a big dip in match quality since this years sale marathon.

2019-10-23 11:43:16 UTC  

I dont enjoy Squadleading very much anymore.

2019-10-23 11:43:39 UTC  

PS' playerbase may be kinda smallish by now, but the players that stayed usually know what they do.

2019-10-23 11:43:43 UTC  

Kinda like in PR.

2019-10-23 11:44:04 UTC  

Ja that's the problem when a playerbase grows too fast

2019-10-23 11:44:37 UTC  

Especially for a game in Squad's subgenre

2019-10-23 11:44:38 UTC  

Imagine SQUAD but it's in real life and in South Africa and we're deposing the government and throwing the ANC out of Helicopters

2019-10-23 11:45:03 UTC  

It's not a typical FPS such as Call of Duty and Battlefield where no communication and teamwork is involved in any way.

2019-10-23 11:46:31 UTC  

The general lack of community wide enforced rules (like in PR) and the lack of admins in general also dont really help getting the shit players out of game asap.

2019-10-23 11:46:50 UTC  

In Squad theyll get kicked, find one of 1000 servers with no rules or admins and stick.

2019-10-23 11:48:22 UTC  

Ja the lack of "community policing" is an issue too. There only really used to be that one guy that took marksmen role and no microphone just get his sweet kills. Nowadays half the squad if not the entire team is that one guy...

2019-10-23 11:49:13 UTC  

Anyway hopefully Squad's community reforms back to its old self it should anyway as I don't see the mic-less lone wolfing guys staying very long

2019-10-23 11:49:35 UTC  

especially if/when buddy rally goes. As that in my opinion is what really is ruining the gameplay right now

2019-10-23 11:49:46 UTC  

No incentive to use transport vehicles at all.
