It's disappointing because the game is really good, and they get eyeballs on it with the starter edition and people just wanna say "hey, Ubi, you're right your game is great can we split the difference" so as a result it feels punitive I think

AFAIR, Hard said that this will never be an option and it's a deliberate move by Ubisoft, not just something that they didn't think of. If you want the full game experience from the Starter edition, just fork over the cash for R6 credits and buy all the basic operators, as the DLC ones are still prived at 25k renown like for everyone else.
It is around the same amount of cash, sales excluded.

So i picked this game up before christmas and I'm enjoying it a fair bit.
However, unfortunately the person that convinced me to buy it had his PC die on christmas day. Because of that, I've mostly been soloing casual cause i haven't unlocked ranked, and I've noticed that the chat is an absolute cesspool, every other competitive online game I've played as an option to disable all chat and I'm really missing it here.
I also think the game is a bit weird in that its structured like a free to play game like League of Legends or Battlerite but it has an entry fee and then DLC on top of that which i find a bit distasteful.
Other than that it's pretty fair and im really into it which is surprising since i havent really played a shooter i enjoyed in years.

The renown cost for unlocking original operators is really negligible, IMO.
You'll get a good starting pool of operators from doing Situations that give you 200x3x10 renown for completing the sub-objectives mission (plus about 100 renown for every time you complete a situation).
After that it takes only a couple of matches to unlock any additional operators, which is basically how long it takes to figure out how the previous operator that you unlocked plays.
The weekly and daily challenges speed that up even more.

That all goes out the window if you bought the Starter Edition though, cause if you did then you just got royally screwed.

Kullik

yeah i dont disagree that its pretty easy to unlock enough dudes to play and have fun i just feel like if you buy a game for 20 or whatever you should get the basic characters, then maybe charging for additional ones or unlocks and skins can be ok.
I'm not a fan of locking things behind a grind with a microtransaction "shortcut" in general but it at least feels a little justified in a free to play game, this feels a bit exploitative.

The other good thing is that the original operators are pretty much all still viable and useful. Sure, a few of the DLC operators (Hibana, Valkyrie, Ela for example) are very strong but you can do just fine without them. Picking up a couple operators on each side that aren't on the high end of tactical importance (Sledge, Ash, Rook, Jager) is good for learning the maps until you can utilize more complicated operators effectively. Or you can do what I did and die first as Thermite/Smoke all the time.

It's still grindy as heck for the DLC operators/camo/skins and the starter edition is the worst, but the way it handles the original operators is okay.

Hop in the Discord and play with goons if you haven't done that already. There's a pretty sizable crew of EU players so your ping should be good. Just make sure to say you're new so you can be blamed for everything that goes wrong! (Seriously though, you'll get good advice.)

Under Gameplay, there's "HUD Preferences", and you should be able to disable all chat from there.

So I've recently started playing ranked a bit more (Silver represent ) and I wonder, does the supposed Elo-aspect ever come into play? Because so far it has, without fail, always worked out to: Win a game: Rank Up; Lose a game: Rank down.

Thief
Jan 28, 2011



somewhere around gold you start having to win 2 or 3 but the tiers are very close in siege

you can literally get into the bottom of plat through matchmaker luck. that said, the mid ranks from like high silver to gold have seemingly definitive lines in terms of player skill. it starts to become harder and harder to get like 15 kills a game and still win. but in general ranked players are surprisingly chill even if you're losing they rarely surrender and a lot of the TKing i see is actually against tryhards that won't stfu and stop crying that the entire team is ignoring them

but then again, every now and then you run into a team that will take turns TKing you and throw the match because they are trying to derank while padding their K:Ds
