The game that was supposed to take in billions of long term cash has been obliterated by china due to violations of blizzards PR team meaning immoral is banned in the Netherlands Belgium and the cash cow blizzard was counting on china. Lace that in with the newly discovered even more p2w with mechanic of awakened gems in the game has now got most of whoever still played this game free to play only as the game has outpriced the people it was trying to milk.
The effects on blizzard are noticeable and here’s some examples
>they’re now relying on trying to get their developers to market their games not just immoral rather than the marketers
>blizzard despite all the micro transactions has been recorded to be pulling less revenue than it first started off especially with major games like WoW having visibly less profit production due to all the players who subscribed having left ages ago
>more and more staff not just the developers anymore are leaving on either a daily or weekly basis damaging revenue output even more along with screwing over the quality of anything they put out, game or advertisement
>due to sheer corruption bobby kotic has been in place of activision once more right after the entire gaming community bore witness to their scandals over misconduct and a lesser known horror known as “the stolen breast milk incident”
The studio on a general basis is collapsing and as time passes I doubt anybody at either blizzards fan base or the studio directly is planning on sticking around out of fear of being stuck with another “Konami”

I mean the 500k figure is the estimated cost to get 10/10 gear in every category, so in a way it's a little misleading, the devs probably only were interested in how much it costs to get a top level gem in one category. But it's still their fault so whatever.

That’s assumed RNG is also on your side

Fucking hell man. This games a perfect example of why RNG systems are outdated and need to die in games, the only reason why diablo immortal hasn’t been flat out shut down for loot boxes is because you can’t actually pay directly for them, I wouldn’t even be surprised if the awakened gem thing isn’t the only hidden monetization mechanic and only a few days later the community finds something new. Either way immortal doesn’t have a future, they outpriced the whales that they were relying on to buy shit from their game and china flat out banned them meaning a massive fucking portion of revenue isn’t available for them

>theyre really fucking slow
Before BR games were a thing they were mostly fast paced mini games, like minecraft hunger games. Modern BR shooters typically will have the player jump from a flying object and land wherever they want there junk

This is a terrible approach as this means players aren’t pressured to quickly get what they need, this also means it’s likely players can simple avoid coming into contact with their opponents making most BR matches overglorified searches for finding opponents. BRs should instead design matches so that players in a lobby all spawn right next to each other at the center of the map where most of the best loot in game is ensuring players get their shit fast before the long part of the match starts
Another problem with maintaining pacing in BRs is how fucking long it takes for the map to apply pressure to where the player is. 2-5 fucking minutes at the start of a round just to close the map by a smidtch even once is too fucking long even if the lobby is big, at minimum 40 seconds should be the default for all circle enclosements to ensure players aren’t just lying around and actually use their time better while playing. When these features aren’t included it doesn’t make the game reward aggressive and skilled play but rather camping and waiting out the agonizingly long minutes until the match ends
>RNG is awful in literally any pvp game
It’s kind of obnoxious how it’s 2022 and competitive games still have RNG mechanics in games, in BRs it’s even dumber to have RNG on item drops and where they spawn as it essentially means there’s no reason to move towards a specific location as you’ll either always or never get what you want, this also means players are less likely to compete over items causing again long as periods of doing nothing all round. As for shit like spread patterns while hip firing/ADS, damage output, special drop locations you get the point it’s the same reasons established above



I hate battle royales not just for being a fucking snooze fest that require zero skill to play but also for how less fucking boring and slow they could be if someone considered building them better, fucking apex and warzone only got recognized for not being slow as shit and even then in any round you’ll still find these long ass stretches where nothing ever fucking happens. Also remove all the bots in these games holy it’s even shitPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Bro literally the most fun I’ve had in battle totaled was war zone because it was fast paced and encouraged players to play aggressively rather than hide in the same place like in PUBG or abuse movement mechanics to run away from every fight like in apex before all the actually fun movement mechanics like bhopping, pathfinders grappling hook etc all got fucking nerfed

I was playing smash but because my internet was shit I had to put up with bad lag consistently

Normally I wouldn’t care but today was different being that the lag and constant crashes were consistent enough for entire matches in elite smash to result in shitloads of gsp lost. The last game I lost before I quit and uninstalled out of sheer frustration was when my game froze up while I was in the losers menu right after being disconnected mid game during a match of intense lag and it dawned on me smash wasn’t even the worst example of this fucking garbage
Online games are rarely ever optimized and most shooters might as well be unplayable because one, most people don’t have the computer setups of a professional streamer and two most games are just badly optimized on a general basis and this is obvious just by opening up task manager and documenting how many games fuck up your CPU usage instead of running on the video card. Please to all devs making an online game, add an offline mode and for the love of god actually consider things like optimization of server code and graphics, some folks just wanna play and have fun, not get endlessly berated for not spending thousands on a pc setup that’ll become obsolete in half a fucking decade. It really isn’t hurting anyone

yeah and in ww2 the war was connected heavily to the war economy.

what i expected at least was build some steel mills, or other resource factories besides oil refineries

and i expected some money management too and also send resources through trains to factories(instead of only supplying men).
like give me the war economy aspect of ww2

and its not 1000 towns tho like in the us war economy did they build shit everywhere no but they did build specific certain types of industries in certain regions. while also at the same time managing budget resources give me that

I like the game actually. Its basically the only game I play.
I dont give a fuck about lore, about character names, I don't give a fuck about anything really. Its a free game and I play it unranked, fool around, I am constantly joking about shit, its just fun.

You naming a different game is irrelevant. Wobbling should be legal in top64. IF there was no way to parry it, why has no icies ever won a major? Oh because your bullshit knowledge on a game that isn't even applicable here isn't even valid to begin with.

Because last time one got close but queued up against a jiggly puff main and the entire match was then standing around until both of them got kicked because if either did anything they’d be locked in an infinite

Fly Amanita won Press Start in the version of reality that only exists in my own head.
also Chu Dat won BoBC2 over m2k but idk if the rest of the bracket was deep enough to count as a major
You're right that wobbling isn't some OP unstoppable move, though. A flat-out full ban was a mistake. But that guy was also talking about the difficulty of balancing character abilities/ults. Imbalance of those things isn't inherently bad, however I can see it being a problem (to some people) if the most powerful ability at a given time isn't just strong or overcentralizing, but somehow obnoxious - for instance, mechanics that bring the whole game to a halt. Like the days of the Quick-Fix meta in competitive TF2. Boy, it sure is fun to push into a Heavy on last for 30 minutes.

The game is shockingly badly optimized. I’m not even gonna mention destiny as it’s its own cancer to the point where it’s possible to not even get past the menu screen without blowing hundreds on a new gpu and watching multiple tutorials on how to bypass apex’s weird bugs with optimization

Apex as a game has a weird bug in it where if your playing on a pc like me you can expect the server to use the CPU to render and load in everything rather than things like memory or your card(this isn’t a new bug but a consistent one that’s been reappearing in each update for years now you can inspect task manager on apex and see the difference in flu usage yourself) meaning it’s likely you’ll inevitably have to manually change the games files for it to become playable

Second the game has consistent crashing and lag problems attributed to two reasons
The overwhelming majority of online games have terrible support for people with internet speeds below 30megabytes/s
The overwhelming majority of online games run on shit servers that weren’t built or programmed to handle a specific game. This gets especially terrible in shooters like apex where your constantly moving while the server is constantly handling shit like physics and where a bullet and a player are supposed to be and when your combining a terrible program that makes the clients performance terrible expect what everyone got with f76, where the servers instability indirectly breed bugs like
>seeing your team mates t posing while running
>seeing enemies randomly teleporting along with rag dolls not spawning where they should be or clipping through geometry
>hearing the sound of specific attacks and actions before the animation or even input on them play
>crashing randomly mid game or being sent back to the lobby for whatever reason
>somehow experiencing major drops in frame rate during loading screens
And these are just the bugs I could find after playing for only an hour whom most was spent trying to see if I could even get the game to run consistently and that’s not even the worst part about this games piss poor optimization but also for the fact that it’s an online game it has little support for online play

There’s no offline support for training mode which is fucking idiotic to think about. And no unlike Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

I can tell that if you use in-game voice chat any time, you're a lost cause since it implies you don't have friends. This isn't an excuse per se, but why don't you just get some friends?

about how modern games on a general basis legitimately are impossible to run these days without a video card worth at a bare minimum 400 and what ends up happening is the entire industry on a general basis fails to have any significant changes because literally nothing new is being innovated
