I feel a nerf coming. Probably removing his smokes to make him dependent or something

I can't believe they release the patch as is. Completely crap imo

Wonder if it's like the ACOG on L85 bug that Exec has been talking about forever. Basically every 5 or 10 shots is off by about 6 inches if at a decent range. Rest of them are accurate. Not an issue with other sights, either.

There really should be some sort of surrender without penalty option in ranked if you're down 2-3 players due to quitting. Two games in a row the other day our team mates quit in the second round leaving my friend and I at 2 v 5 for the rest of the match. We lost both times of course and ranked down. Unfair.

The system definitely needs to account for dropping more than it does and a backfill bonus or loss reduction ABSO-FUCKING-LUTELY needs to be implemented.

A clanmate (who was plat at the time) and I once joined a ranked game 0-3 on fucking MATCH POINT and were stuck SPECTATING. Which as I understand it, was actually a bug—however, I still see insertions on 0-2 from time to time and that there's absolutely no mitigation or compensation for such is GOD DAMN CRAP.

Yep. Which is why rook can destroy the pack with no point penalty after the round starts if his team doesn't pick all of them up.

Pro League match between Continuum and Elevate up soon on official Siege Twitch channel. I'm not sure if this is qualifying or just a scrimmage. I would think Continuum would have already qualified from winning the past two seasons.

Elevate was formerly an Xbox pro team, so should be an interesting match.

That was a good-ass match, but that use of Glaz agitates me, especially when they were overconfident with him (i.e. Canadian's botched rush in the freezer). I understand high level players' frustration with the domination of Montagne, but I think a meta with him is far more dynamic and fun than Glaz, an operator who is so much less team-oriented.

They both need very soft nerfs. Perhaps remove the laser from Monty's revolver, and reduce Glaz's ROF. But I fear Ubi's going to scorch them, and then we're going to be back to square one, which is a lot of samey team compositions.

To a certain extent, I'm worried about the same thing with Fuze, who only needs a slight range reduction and a fix for the excessive bouncing.

On the other end, I'm afraid of a Blitz buff going too far as well. At this point all he needs is a fucking hitbox fix. After the small buffs here and there he's received alongside the other shields he's already creeped back in the meta ever so slightly, I firmly believe a hitbox fix could edge him back into total viability.

Continuum always starts out really slow and it seems like they're figuring out what the other team is doing and then they change their strategy completely to counter it and unless the other team can change their strategy, then it's over. And it doesn't seem like any of the other teams change their strategies like that. Definitely none of the non-NA teams.

The Glaz buff Is frustrating because he's so strong now that every pro league team is picking him for every match. I'd rather see everyone pick Montagne than do the same thing with Glaz every round: smoke everything, Glaz take out a couple before he gets taken out, rinse and repeat.

Think they're going to take Glaz's smoke grenades away so that he'll have to work with other operators. Or maybe they reduce the 3 smokes to 2. I don't think they'll take the thermal away though, but who knows. Maybe you try to make other operators stronger to counter him. Give Pulse back his range and instant switch again maybe.

Yeah, Blitz doesn't need much. Fix the hotbox and that's about it. Maybe they could make the shield slightly bigger? He's being played more at high levels of ranked play (well beyond me lol) but nobody in pro league will use him. Not surprising that Jackal is never played. Hes pretty useless if your team is droning everything out.

Three days after implementing 'fuck this guy' matchmaking R6 would go from 20 minute queue times to infinity.

I like it when randoms come through for me though. This might be my favorite ace that I've gotten: http://xboxdvr.com/gamer/Pegasus%20A...video/28326603

A bit of a surprise ace, I didn't realize I got the random wall-bang while fighting Montagne until I watched it back a couple of times. In the heat of the moment I was just confused because I thought I headshotted him but then he was still alive.

Anyway, the randoms... Valkyrie with the boss camera that I wanted. Literally all I was trying to do from the start of that clip (and probably a full minute prior) was to jump out that window for the flank. But somehow I got wrapped up in a situation where I had to kill the entire rest of the team to be allowed to do it! Boss random Echo takes care of my Montagne problem for me, and he was even getting Yokai in position to help with the second to last guy!

So I've pretty much only played T hunt with a bit of multiplayer here and there and I almost like it but I just get destroyed in multiplayer and I don't know how to get better. Sometimes I enjoy the game but other times not so much. The camping aspect of this game annoys me a lot - last night I was killed through a little hole in the wall that a guy was sitting behind.

I'll watch those strategy videos posted above... but I do know this is supposed to be a team game, maybe I just need some teammates :(

Also, any of the year one operators worth unlocking? I've got enough to unlock one right now and can't decide if they're worth it. I've got maybe 10 operators unlocked so far. If a few of them are worth it I'll probably just buy the year one bundle as I don't have the time to grind it out unlocking too many of them.

Montagne
Smoke

Hmmm, honestly none of them are my favorite characters, I would love a Blitz but I think I am going to get IQ, Tachanka and Smoke or Montagne.

From what I've been told, the ones on the scoreboard are only a ballpark estimate as they're only refreshed every 10 seconds or so. The other one tells you right away what your ping is.

That wouldn't be bad. On the sub somebody suggested a forced green laser sight and another suggested adding scope blinking, which I like. *Another suggestion is Mute affecting the scope, which could be cool too. Still, the economic fix is taking smokes away and/or adjusting the gun's stats somehow. The ultimate fix would be a combination of all these concepts, but that's another overhaul entirely—one they probably can't invest into.

What boggles my mind is the idea that a Glaz and Monty meta are somehow worse than the original Blackbeard. Even Glaz in his current state is more team-oriented than any rendition of Blackbeard. I say this as someone who thinks the last nerf Blackbeard received was a little harsh. And Monty, for all his power, is one of the most team-oriented operators in the game by default—by nature.

If ever the game is reverted to a state where both Blackbeard and Blitz are pervasive, I will fucking flip a lid.

People say that for every game. Although I don't say that to diminish the toxicity that exists among the R6 player base. I'm on spring break, but my usual squadmates are busy, so I've been using Xbox's "Looking for Group" function lately, and fuckin' A have I encountered some total assholes. Fortunately, I'm not a "squeaker" or woman and my skill is only second to worst, but by god as soon the salty slurring and AH THERE'S NO FUCKING WAY WHAT A HACKERs come out I ride out the match and capital b-a-i-l—BAIL.

Long story short, Xbox Live is still terrible and people are still evil.
