New game mode "Paintball"

- Try the new game mode! Paintball is a team deathmatch in which all characters are armed with a paintball marker and have the same equipment.
- Two teams – blue and red – fight in a match. Eliminate the opposing team players to win! The game mode is available on the following locations: School, Tarakanovsky Fort and Vostok Radar Station.
- The game mode is temporarily available under PvP and Create custom match tabs. The game mode has no bots (AI controlled characters).

Changes to Team Deathmatch and Slaughter

- The number of resurrection points now depends on the number of players in a match. With only 14 players there's 10 points less, with 12 players – 20 points less and so on.
- The difference between teams' points to end a match prematurely is now 40 for matches with 12-15 players and 30 for matches with 8-11 players.
- Team Deathmatch on Takaranovsky Fort, Vector Laboratory, Cologne Bridge, and London is now limited to 120 points, and to 100 points on other locations. Slaughter on the aforementioned locations is limited to 150 points.
- Resurrection points are now subtracted only when a player character dies. Bots' deaths do not count for this. The only exception are practice matches when one of the teams has only bots (AI controlled characters).

I haven´t played Survarium now for more than one year and a half
I´ve seen the update notes and the new paintball mode.

Actually, I must say, I´m glad, that the devs try to bring back LMG´s by buffing their stats! I remember them to be almost dead back when I played.

Also, the new paintball mode´s a good introduction for a (sadly only) PVP based game like this, imo.
Why do I think so?
People like the post apocalyptic atmosphere and often play paintball and strikeball with Survarium or Stalker based setting.
Also we can´t deny that lotsa children play Survarium. Maybe this´ll stimulate people to play these sports irl and develop Survarium based settings which´ll also serve as a kind of PR. Also, an animation to sports´s always a good thing!

Who knows, maybe that´ll help Vostok find a new path to acquire more players and finances?...

Anyway, there´s still lotsa work to do, to satisfy new players and bring old ones back:

Ragdoll, open world, storm, return to static anomalies and rework the new ones, so that they fit into the ambient and don´t look like some Power ups (a detector for artifact hunting like in Call Of Pripyat´d make a good addition), PvE with mutants or even PvP with mutants and so big, open world maps, return to dynamic spawn, new animated meelee (Battlefield 3 etc., Doom), FREE PLAY, FREE PLAY, FREE PLAY!!! and I can and will write it some thousand times more!

Played the game yesterday.

Positive new stuff that surprised me:

Base-rape protection,

VoIP,

craftable weapon modules,

graphics,

rainy CNPP,

finished skill- tree,

cost-free PvP matches,

the game didn´t crash throughout the whole session!,

the skill, which enables you to sell collected artifacts after a match,

20 gold on 7th day of playing the game

SVD, SOK, SVU, etc.

no extra damage modifier for weapons

Pay silver to reset skill tree


Things I disliked:
You can open only three crates after second coop mission play through for free. C´mon...,

still no hitmark when explosives kill or hit enemies e.g. grenades,

meelee seems to not work sometimes especially while sprinting (dunno if this is intentional),

Is the game really that resource requiring, that I can only play on minimal settings with a Geforce 980 GTX M and Intel Core I 7 4720 HQ @ 2.60 GHz and 16 GB RAM, to reach on res 1920x1080 about 50-90 fps? If that´s intentional, then it´s ok and understandable, if it´s engine related, that´d be a shame

You need to pay gold to up or down the level of the item of the week. People should be able to pick it freely! I mean it´s still hard enough to acquire

Why do you want this? I don't see the point.

RiotOfDoom wrote:meelee seems to not work sometimes especially while sprinting (dunno if this is intentional),

Melee uses stamina and you're probably too low on it after sprinting.

The game has two graphical settings that are more demanding than anything else since they're not finished, so you could try disabling those, as even on a high-end GPU the FPS gain will be noticeable. The two settings are "Grass Shadows" and "Screen Space Reflections".

It gives this option when you don't have any stash maps, but it can be done even with free weekly stash maps.

Played leagues.

The matchmaking´s a joke. I played against players, that really play in another "league" than me :-)
How can I be matched with people who seem to have an elo faaaaar beyond mine? This only ruins the experience. Ordinary players shouldn´t be matched with and against ESL level skilled players.

For comparison Match ID 15977172. I mean c´mon :-DD
