If you're outright deaf in one ear, you could try shooting a hole in one panel before reinforcing a 2-panel wall. Then stand sideways; if you hear the charge go down clearly, it's the panel you broke, and if it's muffled, it's the other one.

Sound carries through the bullethole even though there is a reinforcement on it? Didn't know that! Can try doing that.

I like how they stressing super hard that it's cosmetic items only in the packs and that if you buy 50 you're guaranteed the whole collections


Like gently caress off man, none of these companies want to be the next EA but none of them can turn down how much money these things generate so they do them anyway. Notice how carefully they point out that all the stuff in these packs are cosmetic only just in case any Battlefront fans are reading about updates for Rainbow Six and decide that the word lootboxes will trigger them and get Ubisoft in trouble.

Why do all the shootmans have backstories in this game where characterization is limited to "Barricading wall"?

Because


A.People flip their poo poo in youtube videos analyzing every last detail given to try and figure out what ability/gadget they might have based on a paragraph or so of info.

B. Giving more info facilitates fan art, which gives the game more attention in the artsy/tumblr type spaces that might not play an FPS to begin with

C. It probably proved very popular to link Ela and Zophia together both in backstory and with in game mechanics so perhaps they are trying that bit again.


Although i do get where you're coming from. At this point Rainbow Six is turning from an elite squad of the best operators from every CTU in the world to a drat fraternity. Remember just back in Season 3 when the most info Mira got was that she's good at fixing things and she gave Tachanka the shield on his gun? Now everybody knows everybody and is a comrade/teacher/flirty work friend.

I would rather have smaller maps in the future, freaking themepark is too big for it's own good amd that's the kind of scale i expect when i hear about "bigger" maps.

How about smaller maps that don't have do many nooks and crannies for every new roamer operator to hide in

I like how Ubi's idea of buffing operators is just to make them faster. Very rarely do damage/recoil changes make any kind of significant change since TTK is so low in this game in the first place. Better to make everybody faster and thus harder instead of doing anything.


Now waiting on the glorious day where Tachanka can remote control his gun like a sentry turret on top of being yet another 2 speed OP with the russian shotgun secretly being the best one.

It costs 5k renown to unlock all Ops in a CTU, there are 5 CTUs, so 25k Renown there.

+ ~400 renown for each op to get them scoped and gripped, so that's 20 * 400 = 8k more renown. Total 33k.

A ha! Enough renown to unlock Finka or Lion on the first day of the new season without buying the season pass, we can't have that!

That's probably the reason right there, or perhaps whatever infrastructure they have setup just can't do refunds in that large a quantity. Pretty sure they got pretty darn close when they took the ACOG's away from every defender except the fatties though.

I'm really less concerned about the new ops and more that this new season has already brought out all the sweaty try hards that are still Ash/Jaegar/Cav'ing it up while half the attacking team is mostly useless at the moment.These new ops seem even more communication based than even Dokkabei is, since at least you can just use the phone whenever and you may help sombody find a corner camper or something. I've seen the Lion drone do jack poo poo the whole round, or Finka's that use their nanomachines at terrible times.

Like yeah i get that the content is only a few hours old now but i feel like it's gonna be harder to get more casual uses from their abilties as a whole. I will say that Finka is good at making me put down my controller a second to early thinking i was already dead about twice over during a gunfight soooo there's that?

With over 100 ops planned i'm sure there will eventually be more than 2 that can breach reinforced walls. Of course the flip side is that with over 100 surely there will be more ops that can do "defense" like Mute or Bandit right?


I also assume we will get more ops like Thatcher. As it is now only 3 EMPs is a little tight at times and it will only get worse as more ops can throw out more things.

I'm gonna be sad when outbreak leaves since it's so much better a way to warm up before multiplayer than T-hunt is. Since at least on console, T-hunt on normal has aim assist while Outbreak does not and doing one map is long enough that it would be about as much time as 2 or 3 T-hunt levels would be anyway.

Because despite all the good things about Hibana, she only has 21 rounds in her AR. That's literally the one balancing factor built in that is a legit downside. It's a small one in the grand scheme of things and almost nill if you have good accuracy but it's still there.

Meanwhile Ela gets a gun that started with double the ammo and firerate with accuracy that was about the same AND the ability to place concussiom mines anywhere with the downside of ?

This games TTK is so drat fast i don't blame the camera men in these events from missing things from happening. A shootout can be over by the time they realize it's happening and switch views.

Memes about console aim aside, the less accurate nature of a controller means you actually have extended and even tense shootouts happen more often than not and i am forever sad that the console side of pro league is gone because of it.

I feel like if Evolve had not gotten hosed by bad marketing and monitization techniques it could have really held up. I loved that game but goddamn did it nickel and dime you for all all your worth. Friday the 13th is probably better in that respect but it's gotten hosed by legal troubles recently (copyright law, not necessarily the developers of the game themselves) but it at least is more of a chill game with more things to do in it than Dead by Daylight. Although i will give DBD props for having all the killers be fun to play an unique, a shame survivors are overpowered as poo poo.


Anyway that's my opinion on asymmetric games. in Rainbow 6 news i really,really like Thatcher's elite skin. He's got that porn stache going on and the victory animation is great. It's kind of a shame so many of these "support' operators are getting victory poses and it's like how are you ever going to see these naturally unless you just carry super hard?

If anything I think Ubisoft is in an upswing, putting effort into their games that need it (The Division, R6, For Honor) and putting out pretty good titles (AC: Origins and Far Cry 5). Seems weird to bash on Ubi now when they seem to be making up for their mistakes. So many of their games were terrible on launch because of their weird rush job schedule but it seems that they realize that it was hurting them.

I"m just kinda surprised it took them so long to "fix" For Honor after seeing what actually fixing the game did for Seige in terms of popularity. As great as Seige is now i kinda miss the days when it was smaller, playing Season 1 ranked was genuinely the best, and with the most non-toxic i've ever seen a game community be.


Granted this was back before they even put the winner circle and cosmetics in the game so they probably weren't to sure of this "support the game you put out after you release it" thing. I'm not a huge fan of the Live Service type system that a lot of games are becoming these days but at the very least you know that means the devs are actually going to perhaps do something about potential problems a game might have as that will cut into their IAP earnings.

I hate the new Hereford but that's down to them retexturing the entire map so it's way more visually cluttered and changing the decoration on everything so you no longer know what room is where in relation to the general layout of the map. The ground and top floor changes are solid, though I'm not sure about the basement.

I don't know how they made the map more claustrophobic when the old one was literally 3 hallways stacked on top of each other but they did.Every room is super cluttered and their way of cutting down on peek wars from outside on the first floor bomb sites it just to make literally every sightline last like 3 feet, it's kinda ridiculous like that so the map feels super small yet is still different enough to me that i get lost just going from room to room. Maybe that will change with time though.


Honestly they could have just added the extra staircase and made the map 100% more playable.
