    Why? It’s easy to make money in EFT now. Wipes are good, they level the playing field. I’m level 52 with all sorts of cases and millions of roubles and I don’t mind them wiping it all tomorrow, it’s a part of the game.

    Give people free stuff and they still find a reason to moan or be negative. I’ve played for over 2 years and this is the first time they’ve ever done something like this, think yourself lucky, especially if you’re usually skint, which I’m guessing you are from your post ;).

    Agreed, but becuase you can get all the loot in game anyway then noone has a leg to stand on.

    All this bonus gear only gives me a slight cash boost till the next wipe, then we all start again anyway.

    Twitch drop is just free cash, who cares if they wipe for a decent patch that fixes decent bugs and adds new stuff?

    Well im only level 2, just started playing, but when they wipe, dont you just have to do all the same tasks again ? and once the game comes out of beta, will there then, not ever be a reset ? or will there always be resets ?, i mean what do you work for, if there going to keep resetting and you loose your level/gear/money each time, what will the end goal be.

    I would assume after Beta the wipes will stop. Worst case would be a short server roll back a day or two if they broke something.
    For now just have to play for fun/learn and expect a wipe eventually, all part of the (expensive) Beta.

    I certainly don't expect the "final game" to launch anytime soon.

    It went boom before he jumped on the bandwagon, pestily had already done a 44 hours stream getting around 77k concurrent. DrKnobhead turned up two days after.

    True but DR has a crazy following on Twitch and some of the best content on youtube if you like that kind of thing.

    You mean if you're a raging teenager that has anger management problems? Fair play to the bloke, but I don't see how what is essentially autistic screeching and shouting is appealing to anyone, let alone his toxic attitude towards everyone but himself on stream.

    It's an act for camera which makes him millions of dollars every year. I'm not a lover either, just stating facts.

    What's the best method for sorting out inventory, have people assigned hot keys?

    Buy cases that you can afford and spend a while sorting it, no quick way unfortunately.

    just a act to hook people in. never happened. all the top people do stunts to get you watching or talking about them. love em or hate em they get the viewers in and bring many people to games. tarkov will benefit from him streaming it greatly.

    I know it's only a beta, but the game is near to unplayable currently outside of raids themselves. It's not exactly cheap to buy into early access and with the increasing popularity, you'd expect them to have server issues covered better I'd of thought.

    Why would you need a wipe because people got 1 pair of thermal goggles ? 95% of users will have just sold them for close to 2 million and the others probably lost them in the first raid they used them. Can't see any logic whatsoever for a wipe because of this.

    You must be new to battlestate, the last thing anyone on the planet expects from them is server stability under heavy load.

    This game can be so frustrating! Just landed 6 shots to the body (291 damage) with the best 9mm money can buy on an un-armoured opponent and he just turns and 1 shots me in the thorax with a pistol.....

    Great time to get into the game, whether you're brand new or want to pick it up again. :)

    I stream weekdays in the evening and during the weekend when free. I'm online now if you want to check it out. 3 followers away from affiliate ;).

    Has anybody else spent a load of money just to make a stupid gun that they'll never use?

    One upside is it's a good storage for sights. Still only takes up 3 squares.
