How happy would you be, if there will be camos for weapons? not fully customisable, but still

that is a great idea. Its in games like CoD and adds personality to your weapons. I’m sure many people would be willing to even pay gp to get them.

What this threads needs is something different.
A respected player to write it all, himself.
Someone who has been around from the start, someone who isn’t biased.
I would list off a few names but that would… again… start another ego war.

Veterans know that they are veterans, they have respect amongst other amazing people.
Noobs know they are noobs, but that doesn’t stop them.

Okay…. back to un-serous total. :D (> ‘v’)>

I could try and help with this. This sounds just like me! :P been around from the begining, check, not bias, mostly check, not here to start a flame war check, no ego…. maybe check, i’ll get back on that one. anyways, i think the thing we need more is perhaps individual input, or multiple inputs. i’ve been around for a long time (one of the longest) and i’ve been apart of the community the entire time. But that doesn’t mean i know everything. Also a side note to the players part. i feel that the people who go up there should be people with a significant impact. people like lancer, or grav (even though i guess he doesn’t want to) not everyone needs to be up there. I’m not saying that nobody should go up there, but you know, the big players. do i feel i should go up there? well yes and no. I’ve been here for a long time and i have made some major contributions to the game, but at the same time it may just be for egotistical reasons (heck who doesn’t have an ego around here.) since this is the thread for putting the past, i guess i should put my history, as unbiased as possible (except appearently about my bay5 skillz but its important to the story sometimes and i can back them up so meh!), keeping everything to facts.

Well, i started in december of 2012, in the first week of this games kong release. I started playing the game and made some friends. this was the earlier days when level 59 still hadn’t been reached yet. the people at the top were some like Lancer and Knifejaw. I started to play around the maps doing contracts and just having some fun. slowly i started to find where the fun was in this game. When i started playing i was given the aps, and it sure was good (atleast in my nooby mind) and i decided to make myself a pistol skill tree. i went all the way down and got all the skills to +10 dmg. during new years they had a promotion where they gave out gp everyday. it was enough to get myself a gp gun. i chose to go with my skill tree and pick the glock 18. this was my gun and nobody could stop me. the next few months were times of fun and joy, me playing around in bay5 owning the noobs with my glock 18 at 10-20 fps (yup, that bad. i still dont understand how i could possibly play at such a bad framerate) i remember meeting people there like jerbear when he was in his 30’s. if i remember correctly he used the saiga (what a noob :P)
Late febuary they released weapon mastery…… well… weapon leveling, we were promised weapon mastery and customization but it never came. in that time i had a great idea: what if there was one place with all the highscores for the best gun levels. and surely enough i made a thread. after a week it didn’t pick up and i ended up dropping it. then some random guy came up and volunteered to update it. after that i posted his pictures and it was great team work.
Into april we started to get the CW community going, it was becoming a great thing and with it we had our practices. one of them being farming. I played nothing but bay5 and i had a lot of fun doing it. but some people had other things in mind. they wanted to get their w-tasks and contracts and achievements done easily. it was nearly impossible to find a good legit match in bay5. it was funny when i would own them trying to play legit and they couldn’t even stop me. but i was fed up with it, so i went to the forums. there i created the master piece known as the farming thread. this is one of the biggest steps to putting a stop to farming. its linked somewhere in this thread if you want to look at it. and then farming was over.
throughout the spring i had slowly stoped playing CW, i had my on and off points and i would continue on for a while. there i made friends with people like grav and lancer. It was a fun and peaceful time, late spring clans came out, this was when 1337 was formed but also another clan. it was called LTYS. one day acescards went up to me with a proposition: “if you beat me in bay5 i will let you into my awesome top player clan” and you know what? i did just that. he let me into LTYS with a lot of my friends like sumur. over the sumer the clan died as aces became inactive. and in the fall i didn’t play much. winter was starting roll around and without a clan i decided to join OhMy a while back i had changed my name to “/||\” it was fun watching people try to pronounce it. I had joined OhMy, but i think one of the main reasons that i was let in was because one of their recruiting officers remembered me being good at bay5. and how i used to always beat him. over x-mas was the controversial clan race and i was happy to participate in it with OhMy. here i finally managed to get up to level 60 (only took me a year and ingame bonus xp + 3x booster). I felt my name was getting old though, so i thought of a great name. after failing to get into 1337 a bunch of times and with the popularity of the clan i decided to go with the name “1337 reject” and EVERYONE loved it. it might just be one of the greatest IGNs to date. then sometime in january-febuary i was kicked out of OhMy, to this day i do not know why. i asked on the OhMy forums and i was removed from them. So, i started to bitch in chat, and what do you know my good old friend grav, now leader of 1337 (well i mean he’d been leader for a long time but you know) was in chat. he took pity and after some arguing from me he let me in 1337 (and boy does he regret it!) so i rocked the name 1337 1337 reject for a while and eventually changed it to storn. i later changed my alt to \||/,
In march-april there was the monthly video contest going on, and many 1337 members were part of it and encoraged me to start making videos. I did and ended up with one of the best videos in the unjudged contest and continued on from there.

TL;DR
- 1st week vet
- Glock 18
- bay5
- top guns
- Farming thread
- LTYS
- OhMy
- 1337
- videos

bold on the most important ones

Topic: Contract Wars: General / PEOPLE WITH HIGH PING DON'T HAVE AN ADVANTAGE!!!!!

Originally posted by 1CEMAN:

I didn’t read it all … But I’ve been on plenty of servers with high ping. And when I compare my performance on high ping servers and low ping servers, I realize how much high ping ruins your ability to play well.

More shots to kill, harder to hit moving targets … So you waste ammo, and the players in your surroundings are not easy to track, so you get killed out of nowhere.

High ping = disadvantage.
Low ping = Advantage. You’re lucky to have low ping.

heres the problem. Its not that high pingers have a better game on their end where its magically easier to do everything. you say playing with high ping sucks right? well imagine this: your playing on a server but now there is one person with really bad ping (or the entire server). Now everyone else has really high ping creating a lag shield. Note: lag shield is not created by the ping of the player themselves, but the ping difference. so yes. that is why everyone hates pingers. they ARE harder to kill and they DO have a lag shield. and NOT it is not OUR fault that the PINGERS are CREATING this PROBLEM. so yes, they do have an advantage, just not in the way your thinking.

Guessing from the Devs skill in scripting, it’s probably a set speed since they seem pretty incompetent.

its a % probably like 60%. i know since a 100 mob gun is still faster than a 50 mob, and the walk even feels fast (i walk a LOT)

Topic: Contract Wars: General / Weapon Customization

Originally posted by PrivateCowboy:

So,many player talk about the new Customization feature.
But my question is: Will GP guns have GP Mods?
I think every gun should use CR for Scopes etc,
and the Devs need to keep an Eye on the balance,
when we have GP mods the balance is going to
damnation,cause player who buy noobguns will buy
noob-modifications.

If only there was a topic which had all the information about customization. i mean even if there was, it would be usefull if it was on the first page of the forums.

There is nothing will be bought with CR / GP / SP (only gp early access), but other way to unlock

Topic: Contract Wars: General / The History Of CW (Players, Clan, And Other Things)

I feel a link to this thread is important to the farming section as it was a big part of the farming controversy. LTYS, one of the reasons for its downfall was the lack of activity from aces. i remember it was fairly hard to get anything done since he was often away. There is probably more things that went on behind the scenes that i dont know to cause it as well. One old player that i feel needs some mentioning is knifejaw. he was one of the players during the very begining of CW and was great friends with lancer If i remember correctly, he was the first level 59 as well, someone might want to double check that (if anyone remembers that far back). Also, i dont meant to shit on anyones parade but i am probably one of the oldest vets who still plays the game, having joined the game in the first week of its release on kong :P.

Topic: Contract Wars: Weapons / AWM vs ORSIS vs Vikhlop Plz Help

orisis is the safest choice. it is a good all around sniper and has some very unique and great features like its mobility, scope, and scope in time. If you get the AWM you should only really get if if you want the red dot on your sniper. VSSK should only be bought if you want to be a pure sniper (or a sniping alt).

grav is no longer a tester. he was running these contests and using his ability as a tester to give out prizes. He doesn’t want to even talk to the devs at this point from what i understand. without anyone to judge/hand out prizes, things dont happen.

Topic: Contract Wars: General / Remove Grenades From Bay5

Originally posted by vitalykolobkov:
Originally posted by noone6:

No… now vitaly will be here soon to tell us that grenades aren’t OP. Yes, obviously grenades have needed to be removed from bay5 for a long time.

They are not OP. Why dont you speak about 25 mortar strike that kills almost everyone in bay 5 once you launch it.
Bay 5 is not designed for prokills, it is not designed for high KD. It is designed for crazy deathmatch. Some smart asses including me tend though to sit in the corner or move along the same wall all the time with noob gru or something. It would be an OP tactics but grenades and mortars break it. So grenades make bay5 even more random and strategy less map that it was designed for.
And by the way. If you upgrade grenade range they become much worse for bay 5, since they always either fly away form map or hit an obstacle, so they are not that OP.
This is eternal argument I believe.

So let me get this straight, you’re saying that because bay5 is DM, it should be impossible for someone to actually have skill, or be rewarded for skill. You’re saying that you SHOULD have players randomly die for absolutely no reason at all. You should take skill out of the game and make it a game about luck. i hate to break it to you, but you dont play an FPS to play a luck based game. if you want that, go play some slots simulator or some shit. Ignoring the skilled players in a game and saying “fuck you” to them and to punished them for no reason at all is just stupid. its how you make a game less fun and harder to play.

Topic: Contract Wars: Bugs and Unofficial Tech Support / Contract problem - Terminal map

If a contract says you need to do it on a specific map, it needs to be that map. with your contract “get 2 wins on terminal” you need to be on the map “terminal” not “Terminal dm” same goes with OSM

Topic: Contract Wars: General / Remove Grenades From Bay5

If anyone has played bay5, then you know how much of a nadefest it is. anyone who has a grenade is always throwing it. you spawn, and you see a grenade flying at you immediately and there is nothing you can do about it. Anyone who has a grenade will throw it as soon as they spawn, and they dont care where it lands. If they throw that grenade and they get a kill, then they get a free kill and move on. Personally i’m not a big fan of grenades in this game. they are just too powerful. I suppose there may be good maps for grenades but not bay5. I have rarely seen anyone use a grenade strategically that isn’t just throwing it at their feet because they see you coming. personally if i ever happen to have a grenade i just throw it to a random spot that i think it will pick me up a kill. it is stupid. all that happens is a kill for just about no reason. Do you not believe it is bad? here i have my last recorded match of bay5. i joined late so it was only 4-5 minutes. pay attention to the counter and how many kills i have from guns vs grenades. i guarantee every death not by a grenade was a good fight that i should have died to (except maybe one annoying fight) none of the grenade fights were a deserved death.
