wtf man? did you seriously expect 6.0 to be "heavy" or something? if you don't want to use lighter armour, at least use a fucking useful ring that boosts your EQ burden to give you at least mid-roll. or gimp yourself on your first playthrough for no reason at all. jeeez. no need to be optimal, but at least use some common sense. don't pretend you're not a noob when you obviously are.

because you wasted souls on int to get the weakest and one of the more useless spells in the game (unless you start with it by going sorc) isn't a good idea? 14 int gives your "invisibility", 15 gets you one of the best cost/benefit weapon buffs in the game (oolacile catalyst great magic weapon) that is useful both for bosses and the occasional PvP

active humanity boosts both your curse resistance and item discovery rate.... and damage of chaos-scaling weapons (caps at 10, so other then some minimal defence rating boost, there's no need for having more than 10 "active" humanity)

I've been having a decent amount of fun with Close Quarters. When you find a game that has more teamsters than rambos, it's surprising how well designed the maps turn out to be. Also generally enjoying the new weapons.

The premium only server thing is BS, though.

Any PC players?

Don't know what you've played and what you haven't, but I think these are all pretty good and are all pretty recent:

Portal 2
Dark Souls
Skyrim
Mortal Kombat
Arkham City
Rage
Mass Effect 3
Catherine
Space Marine

And although most people don't seem to like it, Duke Nukem Forever is only $10 at most retailers now, and it's not bad minus the long load times.

If for any reason you have friends and like local multiplayer like I do, I'd recommend these:
Lord of the Rings: War in the North
Sonic and Friends All Star Racing (Excellent Mario Kart Ripoff)
You Don't Know Jack
Rayman Origins

A lot of these games are $20 or less now too.

Since Resident Evil is openly going the COD route, that's not surprising.

Great tank clutch play from daskro and co. Close match as well, but don't have time to watch the full thing.

I'm really enjoying the JNG-90 with 8x scope. Great bolt-action, just slightly better than the L96 IMO, which was already quite a beast. Working on the muscle memory snap-to-head with this gun, a great transferable skill to all other classes.

The M417 is a beast up to midrange too, though the low bullet velocity is something I need to get used to especially at longer ranges.

I use the 8x scope as well. Could never get used to the 12x. I can't stray away from the m98b, the muzzle velocity and drop off are way too good to pass up. The JNG feels like the m40 to me. Lots of drop off and very low velocity. Also, the M417 is nice but I feel it can't hold a candle to the SKS (after the buff) with a flash suppressor. That gun is stupid accurate and can put more rounds on target quicker than the M4.

800,000 people have already bought Battlefield Premium. I'm happy for DICE, and glad the series is doing well enough that we can be sure the games will keep coming.

The Close Quarters maps aren't as fun as I hoped they would be, but they aren't awful.

I don't have the money for premium so I bought the stand alone expansion. I think it is BS that I have Karkand and CQ but I can't play on "premium" servers. I feel if you own the expansions and are up to date you should be able to play with everyone.

Re: The BF3 32 vs 32 game.

I remember when I first got a PS3 and people actually played MAG. This was awhile after it was released, so there had been tons of patches and it wasn't buggy at all. I played a 16vs16 clan match once and it was pretty fucking amazing. Can't remember if we lost or not... I think we did but it was a close game.

haha yeah the M98B is like a 'true' sniper rifle I suppose. I am trying to PTFO more with the sniper rifles as my skills increase, for which the M98B is pretty poor (takes up so much space on the screen reducing visibility, slow firing rate, small magazine and long reload time).

As far as bolt action rifles are concerned, the JNG/L96 are somewhere in between M40A5 and the M98B. They have significantly faster bullet velocity than the M40A5, but in turn their firing rate is slightly slower. That's why the M40A5 is the ultimate 'run-and-gun' sniper rifle. People have used them to great effect iron scopes (raysteinerz)



and WhiteMoose does some excellent PTFO play with the M40A5 8x



You can really see how the rate of fire is crucial to his objective play success with it, I feel the M98B is too slow for that sort of stuff.

So I'm working with the JNG90 and the M40A5 these days, these guys are my inspiration.

I briefly toyed with the SKS post-patch and it was good. I'll have to compare it closely with the M417, since I really enjoy that guy at the moment.

I wish Avek had been there though, probably would have gotten 2nd due to Cypher's form.
