It's called flick shooting you pleb. But in reality, it was my brain not processing the situation well. Like with Kapkan there I couldn't decide if he was a corpse or not which is why I flick on and off of him. And I expected mute to be moving faster than he was, which is why I shot up the shelves in front of him.

opponent team. began the game by saying "gl hf" and he immediately starts calling everyone on my team niggers and saying EZ at every chance. he had a vendetta against me for some reason and would type "ooooooooof" in chat if he ever killed me. endgame, we're all saying gg wp and he's still spouting the same poo poo and asking us all to 1v1 him on house lol, he was extra salty cause I had 8 kills and a poo poo tonne of assists, and he only had 5 kills. it was a really tense game as well, it was neck and neck and we just about won it 5-4, so no doubt he was feeling triggered. I wasn't even being toxic back, I was mostly ignoring it or telling him to stop.

I just want him to get his poo poo banned, it just annoyed me when he laughed it off and said ubi doesn't do poo poo, and I remember ubi taking a new stance on racism and explicitly saying they will permaban for it.

spent the entire game spouting racism and trying to tilt us all. we won in the end 5-4, but it was trash. "lol i've been toxic for a year and ubi doesn't care". would be nice to get him permabanned, cause yikes. I'm pretty happy with the win, though. it was 2v1 and I clutched it.

this guy gonna get banned. will Support reply to me telling me what the outcome of my ticket is? will I be informed of his ban duration / type?

edit: oh man, my game has been nonstop crashing whenever the map loads in. sometimes I'm able to get through character select, sometimes it crashes on map load. this only started happening earlier today. it'd crash mid-game, but has progressively gotten worse. so it went from crashing mid-to-late game to mid-game, to character select, to map load. now I can't play because it'll consistently crash after I load into a map.

I've changed nothing since this afternoon so I have no idea why the game is suddenly deciding to poo poo itself?

I hope your report works but console yourself a little in that you definitely won this the best way you could because he sounds super salty about the end result.


Edit: wait do we actually think that clip is cheating because it doesnt look like it to me. Looks like an overcorrection followed by a semi accidental kill and a purposefull kill. ( I dunno if the kapkan kill was on purpose. It took me a bit to parse what had happened there.)

I'm in an elite CounterToxic unit, been training for years. this guy was a chump. I'd ignore him and he'd hit me with the "you there, bud?" and I'd say "yeah still here". my entire team was boss, we were all mic chatting saying we can't lose to these fuckers and the positivity was just wholesome as hell. on rounds we'd lose, we'd all sorta pat each other on the back and say not to worry and we'll get em next time.

then at the end, the toxic guy has a complete meltdown and gets so mad, and me and my entire team are just being chill and saying "gg wp, close game".

if anything, siege has gotten better with time. it's an old game, but it's aged really, really well. it's barely recognizable from the game it was at launch (which in this case is a really good thing).

no game out there nails sound design like R6 does, and the evolving gameplay is what keeps me coming back. there's always a different way to play a round.

yeah but it's just tough for me to pull the trigger on spending $40+ for a game that came out over two years ago regardless of what people say about it. i generally shop for older games because they are typically heavily discounted.

what i'm saying is, the free weekend is a pretty brilliant way to market the game.

Thief
Jan 28, 2011



the thing that kills old games is multiplayer activity

the fact that the game isn't yet should give you an idea of how many people are still playing while ubi will often straight up give away older major titles for free in hopes that players will ever even look at uplay

Nah, they give the standard "We can't discuss what actions, if any, have been taken" response.

My FPS has poo poo the bed ever since that Windows patch that had something to do with Intel stuff. I used to get closer to 130-140 FPS; now I'm lucky if I get a consistent 80 and often I get the CPU bug that drags me down to 40-50 with severe drops at times.

It really sucks as I have a 144hz monitor. Some of it is this 970 getting old but I can't afford a $400 GPU.

so doesn't the starter edition extend the time/grind it takes to unlock stuff? does the free weekend deal work at that rate or at the quicker rate you'd get with the standard edition? i have to imagine it's the latter but i'm just curious

e: additionally, how many year passes will there be &/or does the complete edition cover everything going forward thx

Free weekend is the standard edition rate. Note that you can't be cute and buy ops at standard price during the weekend then buy the starter, that edition removes the ops you bought. Buying any other edition lets you keep them of course.

Welcome home boys!

To sort of reiterate again what everyone is saying. Don't get the starter edition. No joke the grind is really really hideous and I can't imagine the frustration later if you want to actually play unique operators, you know a sort of key element of the whole game. It is basically a trap and there are very few cases where it makes any sense. The standard basically makes it easy to unlock all the year 1 OPs in a reasonable amount of time.

Every day I see people on Reddit who complain about only having 12 operators (out of 30+) after 250 hours. Don't get the Starter Edition.

i heard if you buy the starter and then a year X pass it unlocks standard rates but i have no clue if that's true. I got starter because I only had $15 so

That's not true. I had the Starter Edition, bought a pass and still had to pay 12,500 for base ops (I just bought the Attacker/Defender bundles).

If you somehow buy Starter Edition like a dumbass you will still able to buy all original operators via a real money bundle and that'll end up costing you as much as a non-discounted Standard edition.
So it's not the end of the world but you should still buy Standard edition.

Before we get siege 2

first every operator needs a 20$ elite skin, at least 10 of the cosmetic bundles that you can only buy with real money and not in game credits, and they need to sell more Season Passes on top of that, and now that I mention it the sales on the 20$ operator bundles are doing alright but we should be getting people to buy more 7 Day Renown Boosters and R6 Credit packs so they can run that treadmill a bit longer.

Oh and the ugliest cosmetics cost an insane amount of renown, like 22k or some poo poo for a Skull Rain helmet, which is good. I also like that half the skins you get from Alpha Packs are ugly floral patterns. Also RIP anyone dumb enough to buy Alpha Pack bundles

And they gotta make a different loot pool with rad, get'em before they're gone cosmetics and make them like a slot machine, but it's cool because it will only take 100$ of your money

Bogged down how? All of that poo poo is literally segregated to it's own separate menu that you never ever even have to click on if you're only interested in the game part of the game.

Don't misunderstand me, lootboxes and premium currency are still total cancer but you people are doomsaying the game one of the tamest implementations of microtransactions.
