Dear developer,

Why does a squad only contains 3 slots. That doesn't make any sense, because a sqaud is always at least 4 players. I love the game, but it kinda sucks I can only play with 3 friends, instead of more.

It is, with the current state of the match making, related to the balance of teams.

Hi devs,

I really like the game. I've spent a good amount of money to support you guys because of how much improvement you've made to this game. I'm back after a year and I'm genuinely impressed on how much effort and progress has been made to the economy/grinding system and gunplay. Well done!

I wanted to ask though, right now the most popular game mode is Domination (Research).

Will you consider allowing people to single-queue for game modes? Sometimes, I really want to play Deathmatch Solo, but I can't, because I never get a game of DM/FFA. I only get Research.

Also, I feel that you need to balance higher level weapons. I don't like the fact that some weapons are straight upgrades to lower level weapons. Each weapon should unique, such as recoil/damage/hipfire/accuracy etc. Not straight upgrades. Weight is a non issue in the hands of a good player. Example: The Barrett just shits on every sniper. The same with the HK416, it is insanely strong compared to the AKM for example.

Finally, a small suggestion, you should probably give a new player the ability to 'unlock one weapon' from any part of the tree early. This way, they'll have more incentive to play the game and not run away because of all the better weaponry they'll come up against.

Again, thanks for this excellent game.

Peace,

Roger

Any update?

I want to play Deathmatch/FFA.

Is it really that hard to remove the forced 'two game modes selected' option?

Exactly.

I've not had a single game of Last Stand in the last 50 tries.

Being able to select 'Last Stand' on its own would be really nice. I want to play Last Stand, not TDM/Research :(

LS mode is dead for obvious reasons.

Which is?

I'm guessing it's dead because you have to select two game modes.

Most people who want to play Research only will queue Last Stand + Research, when in a party, this forces you to only play Research.

TL : DR - Because you can't play Last Stand in a party, you can trick the game into thinking you're still playing it. This results in almost every Research-only player selecting LS + Research.

xR0ger:Which is?

1) Rewards are bad
2) Respawns are terrible
3) A lot of people camp with their snipers

Those 3 reasons are the most talked about when it comes to LS mode.

It was difficult to find a match from the start. When it just went live, finding a match could took up to an hour or longer.

I really wish they incentivized each game mode with different multipliers. Last Stand = increased Reputation etc.

1) Could be fixed by VG easily.
2) Dynamic spawns? You have plenty of spawn shield to get into cover.
3) That's what the gameplay encourages anyway. You hide with snipers around the map.

P.S. Doesn't mean I like campers, it's just that the game is geared towards extremely defensive playstyles.

I understand you, but that's what the communities pov is currently.

Could a mod or dev delete this thread? It serves no purpose seeing how inactive the devs are.

I cannot delete or move such threads without permission as this is a very old and large one.

Good luck with that... it depends on the population and so far, there aren't a lot of players from SEA. But I hope you guys get your own server asap.

Hi, do you think will be possible to include and option to change the HUD's scale, it is too big right now and take to much space into the screen, will be nice to have and option for that.
