I love shotgun Ying, but her kit is super loud. I want Lesions shotgun suppressor for her. Unlike regular suppressors, enemies still see the muzzle flash and threat indicators, but the sound dampening would still be useful when breaching.

Ops:
- Tachanka (sucks, come at me)

Does it really matter that Tachanka has the worst gadget, worst speed and mediocre weapons? He has the best voice and the most butt.

Well, he would have been 33% of the reason the team lost instead of 20%. Seems fair to me. Numbers don't lie.

That's a solid counterpoint you got there.


Yea I solo ranked all the time and don't remember being yelled at or tk'd in the last year. Usually playing with chill dudes who communicates. You can always hop on discord/mumble if you don't wanna solo queue.

There were constant TKs and anger tantrums when I started a few weeks ago.

Casual became more chill later, so I'm guessing it's a matchmaking thing, and the entry tier is where all the idiots live.

Every now and then I see some dumb dumb shoot teammates and the hostage only to get autokicked by battleye, but it's nothing like the free for all when I first got the game.

Blitz is fun to play if you like the experience of clicking your mouse button twenty times and hitting nothing.

I've been playing a lot of Blitz as a newbie.

Shooting???

Rushing with Blitz is a riot in casual.

Figures that the day I buy the game the servers are down all night. Enjoying the ten situations I can play offline at any rate.

Are any of the year one operators garbage or should I get them all?

Tachanka is the only objectively bad one. Maybe don't get Rook because he's pretty much Doc with a less useful gadget to himself. Other than that, you should be okay.

Picking recruit let's you choose a faction and test their guns.

For your very first guys, I'd avoid Ash and Fuze because you'll be racing to pick them before everyone else who loves them.

The Aug takes up like 99% of the screen unscoped though. That thing is enormous, and even bigger yet with an ACOG.

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".

That's more impractical than shooting them because you'd either have to start explaining at the start of every single match, or scream as soon as the walls start coming up and hope they understand the words "please stop".

Meanwhile a teamkilling will definitely make them understand exactly what you want and what they're doing wrong.

There's time to explain while they're on the floor, before you pick them up. I'm not saying it's a good system, but it stops the wall.

I prefer standing in front of the wall for 45 secs though. They're in such a rush to enforce the first thing they see, they'll usually be out of reinforcements when the round starts for real.

All operators have the same dude-shaped hitbox now. Stuff like Blitz's headset or Mira's backpack aren't part of the actual hitbox.

Pretty sure Ash still has a matchstick-man for hitbox.

You can shoot her right in her stupid face and miss.

Wait seriously? That's broken as poo poo.

It's a risk reward balance. Your reward is hearing footsteps. The risk is someone picking Tachanka, the outside-voice operator who explodes your eardrums with "WALL FORTIFICATION COMPLETE!!!"

Ubisoft saw Chivalry's yelling button, and one-upped them by automating it.

I think the autokick sets in on the second TK in two consecutive rounds, as long as you didn't damage him as well. I would have walked in front of his sights on purpose the second time.

The first temporary autoban seems to be if you TK once or twice directly after an autokick.

When hostage is killed Defendes Win, so that the defenders will kill it every time.
Or
When hostage is killed Attackers Win, so that the attackers will just snipe it with Glaz or Fuze it every time.
Or
When hostage is killed it's a Draw, so that when it's a 1v5 or whatever, the losing team can just kill the hostage to get out of a loss.

Or my fav, the Counterstrike* option: Hostage dies. Nobody cares. Round goes until one team is dead.

*CS may not be this way any more. I haven't played since the HL1 beta.

The GSG9 shotgun seems to have the best combination of range, power and refire rate.

Hibana with Supernova is fun, but punishing if you miss. I occasionally go GSG9 recruit to have a 3 speed attacker with the sickest shotgun in the game.

Lol wtf Ubi. Good to know all those tryhards' anime child porn avatars are being saved to my computer. In 3 different resolutions even, in case I want a really high quality anime.

Welp, I got enough anime avatars now for 200 lifetimes. Thanks for the heads up!
