I think I'll wait till black Friday to pick up a new graphics card and then I'll be a regular instead of sporadically dropping by. I was going to but one but then I saw AoA had $7 romy mags in stock so I bought 15...

I played the Alpha.. Of course Alpha is a long ways off from the final product but I did not feel it was any better than the last. I've already preordered the game because it's star wars and I'm a nerd at heart.

Well there is a lot of crap going on about the loot crate pay to win system, so we'll see what EA does with that, but I think the star fighting is a million times better than the first game, the gun play is similar(familiar is a better word), but different. I'm still excited to play it though, really eager to get on kamino and Kashyyk as clones.

Also guys I highly recommend this game https://www.escapefromtarkov.com/. It's a pretty hard, brutal, and unforgiving game, but it's the best FPS out right now and really the best game if you love AKs.

Join the group and discord if you haven't already.

Hey guys just a little announcement.....The most fun addicting game to play right now is undoubtedly Escape from Tarkov. The weapons/weapon modding is hyper realistic and all of the parts (like ar gasblocks, optics, etc, everything) are all real life parts. So as an ak/gun guy in general this is the best game to play right now imo...

There is going to be a wipe anytime before the 28th which means that everyones rank, inventory stashes, and trader rank is going to reset so now is a great time to get into it. The standard edition is only 45 dollars which is well worth it imo. A lot of of us are gonna be primarily just playing tarkov right after the wipe, so watch some vids see if you like it and come play with the rest of us. This game is really hard, brutal, and unforgiving so keep that in mind.



Also checkout DevilDogGamer for a ton of Tarkov videos, and you can watch https://www.twitch.tv/klean_uppguy livestream and ask him any questions you want about the game.

We have a discord you can join here: https://discord.gg/BJuDAah

And also a steam group you can join here: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/akfiles

The lag drives me nuts and the graphics just seem sub par.. I went with the "darkness limited edition" and played it 4 times and am back on Rising Storm Vietnam.

I'll give it another shot but I was not too impressed. Not to mention all I want to do is play as a scav so I don't lose good equipment.

Never ever ever pre-order a game. Especially a game from the big name companies such as EA, Ubisoft, Activision. Even when they managed to actually get you hyped, they always find a way to fuck things up.

You gotta get on discord and play with a squad bro...Graphics on my end are amazing, the attention to detail is so good and I haven't experienced to much de-sync/lag issues for it be a game breaking problem. Also getting gear is pretty easy so losing it isn't a major problem at all. The more you play and more familiar you get with the maps and the spawns the better you'll get. But as far as realism, attention to detail and graphics go there is not one comparable game out imo. This has got to be one of the best games out there for a tactical realistic shooter. Knowing what they have planned for the game and all the stuff they intend on adding in the future is even more exciting.

Graphics are good enough for me, couple of my m4s.
[IMG][/IMG]



Because of the wipe that's coming the traders are at the highest level for everyone and everything is 50% off, so i've been just getting stuff like crazy from raids, buying and selling.

Steam is just a warehouse / repository for game developers to sell their wares.

There are a great many "steam games" that do not require Steam at all, after they're downloaded to your machine.


If you find the game's actual executable, clicking it will either launch the game directly ( good news! No steam required ) or it won't.

It's random, like I said its mainly used just for voice chat in game. Yeah btw, don’t make a new account everytime you click the link. Just download it and have one account on there.

I never see you on and chatting, mostly just away lol. We've had ppl on just about everyday/night but mostly playing tarkov. If you announce you're getting on a specific game or ask anyone if they want to play im sure someone would join. I actually remember only talking to you once like a few months ago and never saw you in voice/chat again. I can't force people to talk and play with each other lol, but on the tarkov side of things its been great. I mean we've got 57 people already in here, and all on at different times, just gotta be proactive about the game you want to play with people.


For anyone else not satisfied with activity you have to ask yourself, how much are you bringing to the table? If you're not asking people to come play something with you or getting in the voice channels and stuff I'm not sure what you expect? If you yourself aren't active then....?

For how small our little community is on there is on top of people having jobs, family, and school to attend to I'd say we're doing alright especially compared to even youtuber discords with 500+ members and still not have THAT much more activity than we do.

Escape from Tarkov is on sale right now. It’s not without its issues but well worth $38 for standard addition. If you’re on the fence now isn’t a bad time to jump in.
https://www.escapefromtarkov.com/preorder-page

Also me and others will be playing Insurgency Sandstorm this fall which is another title I’d recommend getting.
