Still haven’t tried the new guys. In fact I just barely found out about them. Basically an attacking Vigil it looks like lol.

Well played this new ranked and somehow played five matches in a row as attacker and lost every match becuase it's so weighted to the team that is on defense first, playing solo is going to be a nightmare this coming season, I don't think I will bother.

I really don't like three round rotations either. At the low ranks I play at people don't reinforce basic walls properly and/or probably are not on mic. So it's like oh shit no one reinforced train or got Club pill box while I was getting hatches or whatever.

Going bomb only basically killed my hype for new Ranked. I loved pick and ban but I want to play secure and hostage sometimes too. They need to stop treating Ranked like it's practice for pro league.

CoreRoss hasn't posted a video on the R6 Quarantine leak so it's 100% real because he doesn't report on leaks he has an NDA on.

If it’s based around Outbreak they’ll need to have completely reworked the shooting mechanics, because Siege shooting does not work in a fast-paced Doom style game. This was the central flaw with Outbreak.

I think the shooting itself is fine. They just need to make ADS quick and hipfire more viable since it's PvE. They should also also make it so that all operators are 3 speed. No reason to have 1 speed operators against AI, zombies or humans.

The community for Siege is unbelievably toxic and I've played League and OW.
Yup, though reverse friendly fire has made solo queue significantly more bearable.

Can't wait for new Kafe and then new Kanal. Wish they were doing more than one rework at a time, though, so they can remove garbage like New Hereford. Would love a more compact Tower dropped back into the ranked rotation.

I'm tempted to try Siege out but I've heard they the community is less than kind to new players. What should I expect going in?

I just passed 200 hours (not the most by any means, but it's the most hours in one game I've ever had) and I still get tilted by other players. FWIW, it's the only online multi game I play I like it so much.
I suggest muting the other team as soon as a match starts every game. The bad that comes from there far outweighs the occasional "good play" compliment. Don't worry about muting teammates if they are asses. Muting audio only goes one way so you can still make calls to the team if you want. Stick to casual or newcomer playlist for a while and you can leave games without penalty in those modes.

The game is really incredible and worth playing. Great gunplay and teamwork/gadjet interactions, and all the destruction make it a one of a kind game. When people are kind and making good calls it elevates it even more.

New season starting soon and they won't have Clash, shields, claymores in, and droppshotting is back again. Woof. Maybe shields will stay gone until the new glass versions are released.
New season isn't going to have fixes for the glitches? Haven't they been out of commission for a month or so now?

Sorry I was wrong. They will be back with a "partial fix" and then a "complete fix" will come later in the season. Weird way to describe that in their blog.
Yeah that is odd. Don't care about deployable shields (and Clash is awful so hopefully she is permabanned in ranked) but some maps are crazy unbalanced towards defenders if you can't place claymores.

Looks like Twitch is one mid-season patch away from losing Acog lol

I like the Dostoviesky, nice redesign retains the spirits and improved quite a bit.

First match nook out of nowhere just gun down 3 members of my team including me, damn is mini CAV

I was playing ranked. First match of the season. We lost two rounds, won once, then it was time to switch sides. A couple of seconds after we spawned, all of us began to lag like shit. Pings got super high and one by one people from our side kept disconnecting from the servers until all of us were out. Wtf is this?

Same thing happened to me on Xbox. My ping was in the 1,000 after that I was disconnected from the game.

Never seen that before

I didn't realise they added new achievements. I just got a trophy for 5 DMR kills on T-Hunt.
I think they’ve replaced some of them, these are my ‘locked’ achievements, some of which I’ve done but haven’t triggered as unlocked (probably because I haven’t booted the game since the new update). I remember there were a couple I never thought I’d get, like the 100 rounds as a defender on T-Hunt and the Article 5 one, but they’re gone now.
