New year, new thread!

Because Hard already made a pretty comprehensive OP in the last thread I will just link it here as I slowly update this OP with newest info (RIP Hard we miss you):

https://forums.somethingawful.com/s...hreadid=3800191

Siege has been one of the success stories of gaming where it started with fairly mediocre reviews and reception but thanks to the support Ubi has shown it has grown leaps and bounds and is now one of the biggest FPS's on the market. Yes, you should play it and more importantly, you should play it with goons!

quote:

How to play with goons:

Discord: https://discord.gg/MCQvh79 < Pretty big group. We have 3-4 full squads on average with people from all over so you will find someone to play with whether you are in Europe or NA.

Mumble: http://forums.somethingawful.com/sh...hreadid=3796734 < Also has a dedicated mumble r6 crew if mumble is more to your liking. Clever goons add both servers.

Consoles:


If you are coming in fresh to the game here are some very important points:

-Don't buy the starter edition of the game. It is too big a grind to unlock ops in that one and you will hate life. We recommend getting the standard or the complete edition with all the season passes.

-Siege content is free to all players. Season pass only means you get some cosmetic stuff and the new ops are automatically unlocked for you when they come out. You can always unlock everything non-cosmetic with reknown (the in-game currency you earn for finishing matches) Most cosmetics can also be unlocked with reknown and some are real money (all of the "digital content" cosmetics) and some are in game cash only. So basically there are three economies at play, but it's all for Barbie dress up stuff, nothing that affects gameplay can be bought. Siege is not p2w.

-Communication and Map knowledge is key. That is why it is very highly recommended to play with goons and let us teach you how to play. If you play with pubs people get tilted when there is a new player that doesn't know what they are doing and they will TK you if you reinforce something bad or for whatever reason. Don't risk getting soured on this amazing game by playing with pubs, play with goons.

-Advice on what ops to unlock first, etc changes daily so please ask in the thread and we will get you sorted.

What is currently happening with the game?


As of this writing Operation White Noise, the last season of Year 2 content recently came out with three new operators and a new map and Year 3 content is announced.

Operation Chimera is out which includes time limited lootboxes and zombie shooting with two friends.

This is what we have coming this year:



Happy Sieging goons!

I mean his ability is useless in the double secret super pro-league that you play in where everyone gets headshots 100% of the time but down in the weeds of gold/plat we're giving and receiving plenty of shots to the body. (I have ~7000 kills and of those ~2000 are headshots.) Rook gives a 20% reduction in damage taken, the same as having level 3 armor except with no speed penalty. That's pretty drat good unless you're of the opinion that 2 and 3 armor characters are all super lovely because they have a large speed penalty in exchange for a completely useless 10 or 20% reduction in damage. Remaining standing with low health is vastly preferable to being dead. The fact that it guarantees you'll be DBNO is also extremely good since defenders are often behind hard cover which prevents the person shooting you from finishing you off. Also hardly anyone knows this but Rook's armor also doubles your bleed out time which makes it much easier to crawl to safety so a friendly can revive you.

His ability is absolutely one of the best in the game. Yeah it's not very exciting to use but most of the time you're not changing up gadget placement in the middle of the game anyway. He's a fantastic pick for new players who want to use an ability that greatly helps the team that they can't possibly gently caress up while they focus on the most important part of the game, shooting people.

Like, your argument is basically "Rook is bad because everyone I play with/against is better than the best players in the world."


Then why does he have a consistently high pick rate in the pro-league? Who are you playing with that's so inhumanly good?

I'm average at best in our group but we consistently face very good players from high gold to diamond and this fabled headshots only meta is mysteriously absent from our games.

TTK in this game is so fast that %20 dmg reduction does gently caress all difference in survivability in my 1000+ hours of experience with this game. Any of the other ops I listed have gadgets that help the team in better ways than rook's does(again in my experience). I mean if you think Rook is the poo poo feel free to play him. I don't care.

This, but with a black mirror. Defenders pops out of the woodwork to reinforce adjacent peek holes.

I can't get anything done during the setup phase as Mira because I have to stand in front of the wall I want un-reinforced to protect it from well meaning randoms. It isn't even at the site. Defenders come barging in from across the map to "help".

Yea I gave up on this and now I put two miras next to each other on reinforced walls and open one up right away to shoot from.

I bought this game a while back during either a steam sale or a night drinking but never really gave it a shot. The thread title made me laugh, however, and made me want to give the game a try.

I have the standard edition so this morning I was just running through the situations and getting the small bits of renown. I guess I should do all those and pick out a few operators that look cool? I should probably also get a few regular games under my belt before I start ruining goon games?

Nah you won't be ruining any games. Hop on discord and roll with a crew.

Have they fixed the match making? Do you still wait 10min ques before a match? I only tried the ladder once, but I really do miss dicking around in quickplay with this game.
Yet a lot of the issues that we complained about in beta (poor hit detection, queue times, match making) seemed to of plagued it still when I tried playing during Operation Health..

I never had to wait more than a 1.5 minutes ever in this game. If timer is going above 3 minutes and still no match just restart because it's bugged.

What, camping the feet of enemies? That's nearly as cheap as shooting through drone holes.

I'd much rather deny the enemy information by not letting drones in. I'm rarely camping the door anyway. I use the doors as extra cover for other peak holes and early alert systems for flank routes and last minute barricades when time is ticking down on the objective. The barricades are much more useful at blocking big lines of sight than they are for keeping out enemy operators.

EDIT: I'd also agree that they could be toughened up more. Maybe make both nades and sledge knock 75% of the "health" from them so that they only require a few more melee hits to completely break. Any type of breach charge blows them off in one go. But I wouldn't want them to go overboard on how strong they are. It's already a bitch if you find yourself without any breaching operators and they've walled off all the entry points to an objective.

There is nothing cheap about either. You shoot what you see, it is no cheaper than banging the floor/ceiling to make a murderhole. Mute already denies drones we don't need Castle to be a worse mute imo.

I think his barricade is fine as is (except make it invincible to melee) but should function as a one way door when placed on doorways. You can walk up to it, hit F to swing it open from inside so your teammates are not trapped in. And make it so only castle can go in and out both ways. I think it would add some interesting gameplay.
