I sometimes have a hard time playing on the mobile app. The devices that I arm, sometimes would arm immediately but a lot of times they won't arm until the player passed them. This could be due to lag but makes it annoyingly unpredictable and hard to plan ahead.

They should take a few seconds to arm, and then they don't activate until the player passes over them.

Some won't even arm until way too late, which in turn held up the arming of other stuff, including vehicle deployments. I'm thinking it's the lag.

I'm focusing on the campaign missions right now and I figured I can do the side missions later after I finished the campaign. However, I did get to the campaign mission where I had to chase a fixer clear across town then evade the cops afterwards and I guess that made the game put me on the "online tailing" list and had a tail. He was successful since I didn't know about his presence until it was way too late and I was too focused on the campaign to do my usual precautions.

I've started using blackout a bit more now during car chases and it would throw off most of the cop cars chasing you, as well as the chopper. Though now I'm running into the issue of trying to find more system keys to build more blackout devices, lol. I learned about the blackout's usefulness during one of my ctOS mobile games where I was the mobile player and the player I was chasing kept using blackout to throw my chasers off and it worked quite well.

My first and only try so far in the online hacking had been a disaster.

As soon as I was in the other person's game, I saw him head straight towards my area on a motorcycle and started profiling and promptly found me. I hadn't been able to start the hack yet, nor do any kind of set up. Then I tried to get away and he ran me over, lol.

Maybe I'll try again later.

Tried again several times today.  Lag is pretty severe.  Even when the server says it's a perfect connection you can fire an RPG, see no effect, count to 3 then the explosion happens.  Same thing getting in and out of vehicles.

Game can be fun when it's working, but I fear we might have another month of no servers working like BF3's launch.

I've been playing it on and off and yes, lag can be very severe even when it says you have 30-ish ping to the server. I also get some fps lag but that could be due to my aging CPU though other games have no such issue.

I'm so tempted to get this but having 2nd thoughts. Debating whether to get this or wait for Assassin's Creed 4 or Watch Dogs.

I believe only certain SMGs get that extra "oomph" on the flinch, mainly the 9mm variant (MP5, MP7, etc) to compensate for their low damage. But yeah, I think someone overdid it.

I usually know when the PUG I'm in will do badly just by looking at the class composition at the start of the game. I've seen matches with 4-5 recons and none wants to use smg and attack, they all want to be snipers and use cloak. That's almost a guaranteed loss.
19  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Ghost Recon Online (F2P, 3rd person shooter) on: August 09, 2013, 05:05:35 AM
That's an impressive score Hark. I don't think I've ever broken 40 kills in a game.

Aegis is annoying for sure but there are counters to it. You can roll a grenade underneath it (right click when throwing instead of left click), use HEAT to force the user back to cover, flank it and get inside the bubble to kill it or knock the user down with blitz. You can also mag-dump (shoot everything you have at the aegis) and it'll shorten its lifespan.

Now Aegis when used in conjunction with HEAT can be deadly since you can't pop up and throw nades or mag-dump on it. I've seen that used to mop up the entire team. If the enemy team throws HEAT, use blitz to knock the enemy HEAT down and it'll shut it off.

Now, proper use of Blackouts can mean the game since the recharge time on devices are so long without a spec equipping the "energizer bunny" device on your team. It can mean denying the use of enemy devices for quite a while.

This is definitely a teamwork heavy game and in PUGs that's hard to get unless you happen to be grouped with a bunch of clan guys that already knows teamwork and can play off your devices.

Hark, I tried joining the US queue with VPN and I would almost consider it cheating. The lag gave me so much advantage it wasn't even close to being fair.

In most games I've played, a cloaked recon is only good for flanking and holding the enemy near their spawn point and away from cap. However, most newbies will use cloak to snipe thinking that it renders then invisible so they'll have more time to aim. While that's true against newbie snipers, veteran snipers will see the shimmer of the cloak and shoot them dead anyway.

Hark, there was a post on the forum about the IP address pool separation and they did that so the red pingers won't get too much of lag advantage against green pingers.

Edit: found the news bit.

there are two separate clients.  One for EU, one for NA. 

I have both clients installed but I play on the NA one and they do separate the US/Canada IP addresses from the non-US IP addresses. The only way I can play with US folks is if I use VPN.
23  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Ghost Recon Online (F2P, 3rd person shooter) on: August 02, 2013, 12:13:32 PM
I'm currently working on my Recon to get him to 30, he's at 20 now. Was only using MP5SD and Sentinel sniper rifle before but now with the P90 WAR, the going gets easier. So looks like I have almost 20 days to get the last 10 levels.

I'm Tokek in game, though I doubt we'll run into each other since they separate the queues for US and non-US IP addresses.
24  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Ghost Recon Online on: July 22, 2013, 01:13:33 PM
I bet you feel like this when that happens:


Pick up groups are like that, but when you're grouped with members of good clans, they can usually play off what you play. So if you use a device, they'll follow suit and back you up (most of the times anyway). Though sometimes the enemy team is just too good that your team is just steamrolled.
25  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Ghost Recon Online on: July 17, 2013, 02:19:54 AM
It's 3rd person when you're not doing ADS (Aiming Down Sight). When you ADS it becomes first person. You do get accuracy and crit bonuses when you ADS but you can play the whole game in 3rd person, except when sniping of course.
26  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Ghost Recon Online on: July 16, 2013, 03:01:34 AM
Been playing this one for a few months now and have a level 30 Assault and Specialist. It's a fun shooter game.

The latest patch "tweaked" the non-paying economy and raises the prices of in-game earned RP but lowered the prices for money-bought GC. May be a wee bit tougher if you're just starting out now since the prices of equipment have gone up (unless you're willing to pay real money that is).

I seem to be missing a 4th title in the Flash sale, probably something I can't buy from my region. Can someone tell me what the missing title is?

The ones I have are: The Testament of Sherlock Holmes, Mass Effect 2 and Trine 2.

Thanks!

The other game is PES (Pro Evolution Soccer) 2013 for $13.59.

Thanks! Good thing it isn't something I'm interested in.

The only way I can keep up with the current tv shows is by pirating them sadly. Most of them will show up on my local cable channel eventually but it will be 3-6 months later and heavily censored, same with dvd box sets of shows. I do have cable at home and subscribe to HBO so they are getting my money, lol.

With all the digital distribution service like Steam, Origin, etc, I find I don't need to pirate games anymore and haven't in years.

Yeah, xbox360 controller works really well.  I still use the keyboard to access things like my lights and turn signals and things.

I bought the game last weekend at GMG when it was on sale.  I now took out a $400K loan, upgraded my garage, bought two more trucks and I now have two drivers working for me!!!

Too bad I can't assign routes to them

I've assigned a few buttons that I use frequently to the controller's buttons and I hardly ever need to switch to keyboard now, except when I'm in management screen or in map screen.

I found that they do a pretty good job of finding their own routes and jobs. As you upgrade their skills, they'll get better paying jobs since they'll have more choices.
