Topic: Contract Wars: General / No F**King Respect

Who bothers to remember the screen names of people like this? I’m not going to write it down and keep a list.

That said I hate it when people do that as it kind of ruins the game. So that’s a fair point.

“but how he didn’t die”" i landed my shots

sometimes it’s really easy for me to make kills. sometimes it’s not, even on the same day. In one game i shoot ppl and they die in 3 clicks (upper torso). in others it takes me 5-7 (gun: acr-socom). I guess it varies based on some complex function over concentration/tiredness/coffee consumption.

Ladolcevita makes a great point. I can’t tell while it’s happening but I’ll notice that sometimes I’m playing terribly. If I take a moment to think about it I realize I’m tired, being tired can kill your reflexes and ability by a really significant amount even if you don’t realize it.

This guy was just sitting there round after round not moving or doing anything at all. The “glitch” is he never got kicked for being idle.

Topic: Contract Wars: Bugs and Unofficial Tech Support / Bugs and glitches

So basically what this is is the game has started a new round. I am in the game, I presume I am moving around and I can actually fire and hear all relevant sounds but the camera is that of a spectator. The nametags of teammates seen here roll around on an axis that is not quite normal. At first they all start off grouped together as you might expect but then that one name near the center started to orbit the center of the screen like a planet.

Conditions: I had alt+tabbed in Windows to un-full screen the game right when the round started.

Topic: Contract Wars: General / Recoil =1

Simple subtraction. Look through all the skills in the game and write down which ones have -recoil. Don’t forget to check the gunsmith -recoil skill that only affects guns with collameters, don’t forget w-tasks reduce recoil too. Also there’s reduced recoil skills for certain stances but those don’t show up in the guns stats cuz you have to be sitting or aiming to get the effect.

Topic: Contract Wars: General / Camping: Skill or Noob move?

People talk of camping differently than they do of aiming, or bursting, or walking, or crouching, or using single fire, or using the minimap, or using cover, or rushing, or flanking. It’s simply another tool in the arsenal of any player of the game. It’s no different.

People get mad at the person smartly standing behind a rock carefully shooting at your head while they don’t mind the person who stands without cover to run over and shoot you. They think about the latter tactic, “well at least I had the chance to shot him but I was to slow.” Yet they think about the former tactic, “why doesn’t he kindly come out and let me shoot him? stupid camper. if only he would just let me shoot him I could kill him.” They should be thinking, “I will use cover to defeat that camper, or I will flank that camper, or I will take the time it takes to defeat that guy.”

This same argument can be applied to any possible tactic you can use, camping is no different.

Topic: Contract Wars: General / To Mods: Please look at these guys

How are you absolutely sure they only fired 1 bullet on those occasions? Often the sound in this game glitches out and you can’t even hear all your own bullets leaving your gun reliably. Same with getting hit.

Topic: Contract Wars: General / Mortar Strike

Why don’t you just wait until your mortars have finished dropping before you respawn? it gives others a chance to spawn under them instead of you. But that’s weird I can’t remember self mortars ever hurting me.

Topic: Contract Wars: General / New Spec Machinegun

Assuming it’s a good weapon the price is right. But it would have to be more useful or different than the RPD in some way because that is CR and pretty awesome as it is.

CWBeast That happens to me all the time when I’m overloading my internet connection and I am the source of lag. It usually appears indicating that I’m going to get kicked for lag if I don’t turn off all the background downloads. How much is your ping in game I wonder?

Topic: Contract Wars: General / kick these people out

Originally posted by Thenumbers:

Better yet, kick everyone that is not directly hooked up to the server. That’ll solve all our lag problems

Even betterer yetter just kick everyone who doesn’t have their brain directly hooked up to the servers via instant quantum mind-link. Any ping over 1 is still technically lag.

I spawn camp and abuse spawn points sometimes. This change is…eh… I’m just walking around and suddenly this guy spawns right in front of me.

The devs should be fixing the problem (bad spawn coding), not the solution (invulnerability)

Topic: Contract Wars: General / Weapon Mastering feature

Originally posted by kirillkostrov:

It has dosen of uses even in current state. It gives you information.

For example I’ve been killed by the guy using M40 with mastering level of 10 or higher. That makes me sure he likes sniping a lot and gives me a clue about his style of playing, his tricks etc.

Super good point here that’s being glossed over. Look at what you can do with what you have already… more than just waiting for the game to give you something neat like gun mastery upgrades.

That said, personally I think at 100 gun level mastery your gun changes to shooting pulse laser bolts that explode.

Topic: Contract Wars: General / over 150 SP

Looks like he has Profile View Blocking on at the moment. Search for Implex turns up a bunch of < level 10s. Or am I doing something wrong. Either way I wouldn’t be surprised if his profile view blocking stays on for a while.

I hope this kid is able to look back on this post in 10 years and gain some insight as to why they expect everything in life to be easy. I wish I had access to everything I wrote when I was a kid. It would be so revealing.

Muy interesante. I’m betting those were placeholder achievements or something. Always fun to see hidden parts of a game pop up when they’re not supposed to.

But it’s slightly more useful than VSS for closer encounters based on it’s slightly higher firerate and 20 round mag. So there’s that.

Topic: Contract Wars: General / Messed up Loadout problems

Originally posted by Lordoftiki:

I’m starting to get suspicious that the game is screwing up my load out randomly.
I always use the Raging Judge and IZH but sometimes (often) on entering a match my load out is mixed up, Often only leaving me with a random pistol and no primary.
Anyone else getting this?

Used to happen to me and then figured out when you click on weapons to see what they are it changes your active load out until it reverts to the saved load out when you exit the match.

Topic: Contract Wars: General / Progression indicator missing while taking in TC? Confimed by Nqss, It's a bug known!

Originally posted by iFireJV:

It isn’t an issue. Look at the “circle” og the target, it’ll spin around.

Actually it is a slight issue. The notification gives you extrasensory perception as concerns to if there are enemies on the capture point. Very useful for sniping while keeping an eye on a choke point near by.
