Topic: Contract Wars: General / If you had to remove something from the whole game or world what would it be

The game needs autobalance. I’m sick of joining matches with 8 level 62+ and my team has 4 people all level 50+. Just turn autobalance on.

The other thing would be grenades. They’re just annoying.

Topic: Contract Wars: General / roulette reset time ?

Not to be incredibly rude but can you not perform simple subtraction? It tells you exactly how many hours/minutes/seconds until roulette reset.

About that bug. It happens on every building after collecting. It depends how laggy your processor is I suppose.

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / Bug? - Could not select survivors during mission

Try spamming the space bar as rapidly as you can until it lets you switch survivors. It usually fixes the glitch and allows you to continue the mission normally

I’ve been having this problem a lot lately. I’ll try that. I usually just try hitting every key until something clicks over. I bet a faster computer may help but until then spam the spacebar it is.

Topic: Contract Wars: Weapons / Why buy GP weapons when the Tier 1 Assault Rifle is the best in the game?

OP is a very, very narrow-minded statement. What if you don’t need an AR? What if you need a sniper? What if you need a machine gun? Totally asinine assessment. Not even taking into account the recoil/firerate dynamic. Other guns have better ratios, higher damage, and higher accuracy. Silly, silly OP is just pulling things out of their ass.

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.

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?

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.

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.
