I’m just gonna whine and nitpick obvious gaps in science and logic the games and the lore have for fun

>nukes aren’t fucking magic

This is the most important one to point out, nuclear warheads in their current state(I’m emphasizing current because the tech for them is no match for the modern world and potentially not even a threat in the era they were made) aren’t fucking magical WMDs, they aren’t used just because NGOs fight against them but because as practice weapons there shockingly useless. There only heavy enough to destroy 1 or a few buildings, there isn’t a guarantee they’ll hit, plenty of weapons from missiles, jets, satellites etc can detect and destroy them LONG before they hit anything or even launch(fun fact the internet was created directly to prevent them by the USA), volcanic eruptions regularly occurring cause far more radiation, climate change and general destruction than even the tsar bomba, the blast heat and radiation diffuses to such a point where simply being a few meters away is pretty much guaranteed safety, other WMDs and conventional weaponry today do far more damage and can cause far worse atrocities like napalms, white phosphorus, bombing campaigns etc this list just keeps going on

>weapons available

If this takes place a hundred or so years after 2077 it should have EVERY weapon made prior to 2077 and more including f-2 stealth fighter jets, f16s, aircraft carriers, destroyers, attack helicopters, rail guns, turrets, submarines, tanks, cluster bombs, CBRN weapons, ARs, Snipers, Shotguns, Pistols, PDWs, Carbines, revolvers, machine pistols, rocket launchers, flamethrowers, mini guns all made from 1907-present, Suppressors, scopes, sights, hard sights, canned sights, extra clips, remove and add stocks, lasers, modes of fire including semi, automatic, tri etc Bullets, cartridges, armour piercing bullets, explosive rounds, 1mm-20mm rounds, shells, IEDs, incendiary devices, bombs, nukes, knives and clubs, armoured vehicles(this includes jets, tanks, submarines, trucks, ships), artillery, drones, armour piercing bullets, incendiary bullets, explosive rounds, missiles, anti material rifles etc instead the game pretty much crippled you with shitty ww1 and 2 weapons and you don’t even get the privilege of getting to drive cars or tanks or jets without using a mod because Bethesda is filled with morons and the creation engine is worse than garbage, youPost too long.

I noticed OP is a fag and can only seem to bitch about story elements. Might be fine if Fallout were a decent game in spite of this. Unfortunately, Fallout is a trash tier RPG. Don't worry OP, I'll save this thread for you.

Things that are stupid about Fallout:
-tedious click-to-move interface
-combat animations that slow action down for no reason
-annoying barter menu animations every single time you switch back and forth to chat mode
-broken Barter stat effectively generates infinite money as soon as you raise it to 100% or so or get good enough karma because you can trade things back and forth in your favor until you fleece people of all their stuff
-shitty inventory management interface both in the fumbling-hands system that ensures you’re constantly opening your inventory up just to use a key or something, and REALLY awful item scrolling interface that takes forever to reach the bottom of inventories and makes carrying many things a huge slog
-certain guns favored substantially more than others due to the simple fact that you can’t alter their damage output outside critical hit probability—the combat in Fallout does not provide as many meaningful options as it seems at face value
-game has so much cut/never-finished content that it actually feels incomplete, both in the severe lack in number of dungeons (there’s basically only four or five) and in buggy shit like inability to get Followers of the Apocalypse good ending because they didn’t finish implementing the quest that triggers it
-because ammo modifiers are not applied properly, all ammo types are functionally identical
-critical hit bullshit resulting in completely random Game Overs since it only takes one to kill you even with the highest amount of health and armor you can get, a really horrible idea that almost mandates savescumming

Seriously, Fallout is a shitty fucking RPG and the only people who like it are victims of an ad campaign propping it up to market Fallout 3.

Is the number one thing after maybe latency that will ever cap the limit of online gaming. I always thought it would be cool to have some strategical MMO fought over a long period, but then I realized people can easily make multiple accounts and spy on any secret conversations. If you try to limit what information can be transmitted between two players, they can just use a separate voice chat to share it. Not to mention all the people who seem to always be able to find a way to hack any game.

I've wondered about what you mentioned when I saw a video of a DayZ mod manually catching people using speed hacks and why he needed to do that instead of it being automatic.

But besides that kind of hacking, a certain type will always be possible unless you limit your game design around it. For example, playing CS on two computers in the same room, me and my brother used to, if one of us died, use the spectate to tell the other where the enemies are and things like that. Of course that's why you can disable universal spectate. Anytime you might need to rely on an "honor system" you can count on someone to break it.

>I think kernel-level anti-cheat has already dealt a heavy blow
Things like that can always be beaten with virtualization. Drilling into the system is pointless, no matter how deep you drill it's always possible to add another virtualization layer in between the drill and the host system. Game-devs are essentially trying to break the security systems of virtualization, which is used for high security stuff where development resources are orders of magnitude greater.

>All a game dev needs to do is set "flags" for "impossible" behavior

Plausibility checks is the correct approach. You don't need anything too fancy to determine whether a player has extraordinary skill or whether it's a cheater. You just need to group people with a similar skill level and all the cheaters will be quarantined off into the cheater zone.

Use game theory to minimize the issue (I mean the field of economics, not some dorky youtuber). If you can't prevent that a group can make massive gains by collaborating against the game's rules, the next best thing you can do is designing it in a way so that it pays for a cheater to betray his group.

Totalism ranges from some type of leninism to left nationalism, and nazbolism. Like Mosley, Benito, sorealins is def nazbols, but there are also some figures who get put into totalism, but are far these people - Thorez, Foster, Radek (who is explicitly internationalist), Browder even, all of them share more Communist points. Totalism is a weird mix of, all not wholesome, big chungus killers, ebil lefties, while syndies are more of normal (they still can be evil when doing something revolutionary) and radsoc, who are basically demsocs, and sometimes anarchists(but not anarcho-syndies)

-It's like those oddworld games only with annoying kids, dying isn't fun, replaying parts isn't, pushing blocks is not a puzzle, the game is slow and too long, I was done with it when I saw how big the map was. I thought I'd be done when I got to the third area. Gameplay isn't engaging, there's no variety to the 'combat' so you might as-well just watch a youtoube 4k longplay.
This game I was looking forward to since it was an exclusive it was apparently considered special. Turns out it was a chore simulator for ironic weebs. For the record, oddworld games aren't good either, but at least they commit.

Specifically in Player versus Player type of gaming

All of them are fundamentally dependent on the same thing

Play long enough = Get good by getting reflex time in the game
This makes the players think they are skillful and gives the developers long time players
It's a win-win scenario which causes players to play more also

BUT I find this stagnant, Why do things always have to be done this way
There must be some other invention in this space, Will we just forever play this kind of PvP games where all we need to do is invest time and reaction times?

I hope not

>invest time
It is inevitable that people will get better at something when they invest time in it. I don't get what you are trying to say here.
>reaction times
There are already plenty of games where general game knowledge is more important than raw mechanics. Besides that the only PvP experiences I know of that don't require any reaction speed would be those browser based city builders.

You would also have to add in physics, modern armour, friendly fire, squad tactics applied to raiders, organized monsters etc along with removing shit like hit markers, hp bars, that black background games use for snipers. based off fallout lore the game really should play out more like arma than it does as an rpg being that every weapon in game is used on earth. Coincidentally an arma like fallout would also be 10 times more terrifying because of the ever present chance of getting sniped by scouts or air strikes by an unidentified aircraft along

Didn't see a thread for this game yet so here we go.

Deciding to make this now of all times because the Logistics playerbase of both the Collies and Wardens has unionized. Yes that's right; the playerbase of a game has unionized against the devs for the lack of communication and attention to logistics, the part of the game that is argued to be both its strongest and most appealing aspect.

Current estimates for the amount of Logi that will be going on strike for War 86 is 20 000+, with the pre-strike actions being flooding the media sites and Foxhole forums with pro-union topics and pictures.

If you have Foxhole and want to participate, when War 86 starts simply log on, go afk on the picket line and tab out for the rest of the day. Or just don't play at all.

This is so stupid and it's amazing.

the social reformist cucks believe that sending a letter will fix the problem

LMAO

https://www.reddit.com/r/foxholegame/comments/r7jqx3/solidarity_and_solutions_whats_happening_with/

The Logi Lobbyists Lounge is a cross-faction, cross-shard coalition of 600+ logistics players who have banded together to raise our concerns regarding the state of logistics in Foxhole. As one of the server admins I'm here to provide an update and a bit of clarity.

Our ultimate goal is to demonstrate to the development team that improving logistics gameplay is an urgent priority, and to help them identify the core problems within the game that are particularly painful for us all to deal with.

An open letter is currently being drafted for presentation to the team, outlining our concerns and examples of improvements we’d like to see. We have chosen to start with a letter as it is the least disruptive approach available to us, and will also prompt useful discussion in the wider community.

While there's been a lot of talk about logistics strikes on this subreddit and in-game, I would like to stress that there are no in-game protests or strikes associated with us at this time. We have not instructed our members to undertake any disruptive activity. We do not condone disruptive activity or griefing intended to undermine other people’s enjoyment of the game.

Sounds like you need friends bruv. You don't enjoy SP games because you've already experienced them and realized you enjoy MP games 20 times over. Online communities are shit because they're not your friends. I like to enjoy games as an artform, I evaluate them and take my enjoyment out of that. But modern games have equally as good a chance of being good as the old ones. Long term relationships are much more satisfying, challenging, memorable than saving another world in 5 hours. SP also lack any complexity, any time I engage in the combat in a SP game I compare it to Soul Calibur 2 and if it's worse than that game, why even bother? Why play any of the 1000s of fighting games over the other? Games are fine, you should just try out a lot of different things and do what you enjoy. Don't overthink it.
