I've seen some newer people in the game with some pretty solid skills this weekend, but I haven't seen anything much that I would consider highly suspicious. I see tons of accusations flying around and, to be honest, there's nothing to most of them. Usually it's people who just can't deal with how much better than them some of the people that play this game are.
As for banning groups, I think overall it would be bad for the game to prevent people from playing with their friends and clanmates. The social side of the game will be very important to its success.
No one who is new to a game should go in expecting to not take a beating at first. All of us who play the game have been through that, learned to deal with it and became better at the game as a result. Many of us joined groups of our own.
My advice to anyone that's new is to just play and learn the game. Accept that you're going to lose a few. Find some cool people to hang out with and don't worry too much about it. It's just a game, after all.
I should not answer to a such retardation but I will because I'm a polite people. There's no way to have fun against a party of nerdish level 100-300 also if someone can play good, because he WILL EVEN GET RANDOMS, that mostly play the mode for the dailies and sometime do not know also what to do at all. To the story of "pretty solid skills" you are "pretty solid stupid" because using macro is not a skill and is not, in any way, possible to confuse with skills. Also talking about "skills" in a game like this is just a joke for a people that can play real fps like cs go. I feel the smell of that kind of nerd, that tryhard in quickmatches doing barely 2 kd and typing ez at the end, but this is just your problem. EDIT: your nerdishness and saltiness is clear watching you talk about losing or winning , when i was talking about having fun playing fair matches with fair teams, but you are a wannabe tryhard, is obvious also from this; you don't see the point of the game: to have fun, not to win or to lose.
poveracaf I don't know who hurt you in the past but It's hard for anyone to take your points seriously when you call everyone who disagrees with you a retard.
On the issue of hackers: I've played this game for about a year and yes I am a sweaty tryhard. I have never seen a single hacker in the 400+ hours I've played ironsight. Getting killed through a wall is %100 netcode. Getting prefired around the corner is when they hear your footsteps/prone sound. These frustrating mechanics happen to me all the time as well. It's not easy to make a hack and I don't think many are willing to make one for this game with such a low player base.
On the issue of parties: Yes parties can make the game very one-sided. Like OhEmGee has said, games are also social activities. You might like to play alone but many people like to play with their friends as well. Meeting new people and partying with my friends is one of the only reasons I play ironsight. No one comes into a new game and thinks they are the best player. At first, I lost many games to partied players but here I am still happily playing. Like joining a club or learning a sport, you will always fail and get frustrated but getting improving yourself and growing with friends is part of the fun.
On the issue of tryhards: You give a lot of hate on tryhards and saying the game should be about fun, not about winning or losing. Yet on another forum post, you are trying to give tips for the competitive scene. HQ Note: Community Tournaments
So are players suppose to win or have fun?
