RE: Badger, reporting for debrief
I got a job in a pub for a few years, which is fun, for a while... Until you become like a newt in a pond full of vodka - a bit weird looking, kinda squishy and perpetually drunk.
So I've escaped that, because it was all too silly, and now I'm doing a charity bike ride across Europe.
Right, naturally! So where have you been biking? And how does a "charity bike ride" work, anyways?
RE: Badger, reporting for debrief
Lmao badger, it's been a while since I read any posts in your style, good to hear from you again
The past DECADE, well, I didn't game for a couple of years, but "recently" (cough 3 years ago? cough) picked it up again somewhat, bought a PS4 and have been playing games on an off. Bit of Battlefield, GTA, Battlefront and have also been enjoying Witcher 3 a LOT. Before that was mostly work & I guess you could call it a "social life".
Right now I try to combine all of them, with differing effects. I'm doing web development as a freelancer/consultant/contractor since 1.5 years or so, which means sometimes I'M VERY BUSY and sometimes not at all. Currently I'm in a "VERY BUSY" part, which should last 3 - 6 months, before things calming down again.
Life keeps interfering with my gaming it seems, but I must say life's been good to me these past years, living together and doing the kind of work I enjoy, while still occasionally finding the time to do some gaming.
RE: Game impressions
So we're a few months into it and have to conclude that, for whatever reason, the game hasn't managed to "stick" with most of us. I'm not sure why though. It's not a bad game. Not at all. A bit straightforward maybe. Usually there's a single path towards an objective; every map is a repetition of itself. I guess because they aimed the game at non-gamers, they didn't want to make things too complex. (Not sure though. If I was 16 or so - my age when I played the original SWBF2 - I reckon I would have enjoyed this game. So what gives?)
I could probably enjoy the new SWBF2 if there was some sort of competitive element to it. Then at least the repetition could be seen in the light of "training" and future victories. Hope they add private matches soon, see if that might spark my interest.
Then the fact that the majority of players are non-gamers who suck epically. You really can't count on your own teammates - much less so than in games such as Battlefield 1 - and if you play in a group of decent gamers, you'll annihilate the opposing team to the point of complete and acute boredom. Might be a matter of time - if the non-gamers stick with it, they'll get better as the months pass.
Squad spawns would also help bunches. The maps are too large to justify a single spawn-base and having to walk for ages just to get to the action. It impacts the pacing of the gameplay in a very negative way.
I will probably give this game another shot a couple more months in. If anyone happens to hear about interesting updates (private matches; squad spawns) please post an update in these forums.
I don't really play much when working... but I'm off next week. Hopefully then. I have been wanting to play Fortnite with a squad again (I'm too bad on my own).
Here's a recipe for getting better asap: play squad mode, but alone, using the "no fill" option, and visit Tilted Towers. Again. And again. And again and again.
Fun? No! Effective? Hopefully?!
Any tournaments coming up?
I should have some more time to game in Jan, @Uffe did you say you might wanna organise some cm's? Would anybody else be up for that?
Inspired by today's games I think we might actually have a decent shot at winning some matches, maybe even a tournament if we'd decide to play competitive!
