    Just downloading now, hope this is as good as it looks. Seems very Division like.

    Some of the mechanics are similar to the Dark Zone mechanics of The Division, but in terms of the gameplay its worlds apart from The Division. One shot can and often will kill you in this and often you will have no idea where that shot came from, in this you can potentially spend hours building up a good set of weapons and armour and then have one bad run and lose it all in a matter of minutes. You can be grouped up with buddies and get split from them momentarily and then kill them by accident thinking they were enemy. There is no ingame dynamic map, no markers to indicate who your groupmates are or where they are.

    Its a superb game but it is brutal and can be exceedingly tough. Its sometimes incredible and often intensely frustrating and demoralising. You can go for hours and hours having nothing but dire gaming experiences and then on a run everything will click into place and the exhiliration makes up for the bad hours, at least until the next set of bad runs :)

    The game being brutal, is what i like myself, makes the great extractions all the sweeter.

    Exactly, it reminds me of a fruit machine, I'll stick in £50 and spin the wheels and lose everytime, then I stick in £1 more and win £200 and it makes all the bad spins worthwhile :)

    spend a quarter of your stash on gear
    spend three hours working out your build
    die in 15 seconds, killed by noob on first game.

    And this is Tarkov, in Tarkov everyone dies. Some people just die less.

    Yeah, one night you can have a good night, think you're killing it. The next night you get destroyed every raid.

    Thanks...no more using full expedition fuel cans for my mag boxes even when there are empty ones available :)

    About damn time.

    Now please add a fix where my PC doesn't power off and on when browsing flea market or hideout at 2k resolution please :D Discord regulars will understand my woes.

    Had a quick scav run before bed last night, spawned in with a vepr hunter and iron sights, thought I'd just got for a bit of a wander.

    Was looking out over the hills at back of shoreline, just off in the distance I saw another player scav spawn in! Gave him a chance to escape but he was just running in circles doing weird stuff.

    Took a shot at him and he ran off, assumed I had missed. Didn't see anyone else for the rest of the match

    Final score screen comes up, one kill! One shot fired, two limbs damaged, 100 damage incurred.

    Looks like I hit him and the poor guy took 17 minutes to bleed out haha!

    Sneaked up on a 4 man PMC walking in and out of the minefield on shoreline last night, clearly doing some kind of boosting with healing. Took great satisfaction picking them off after watching for a short while with amusement.

    Shoreline has recently become my favourite map, a lot of quests have forced me into it and grown to like it a lot.

    I love it, I enjoy customs but like the extra freedom to pick what you want to do on shoreline, much less linear

    Alternating between interchange for loot and woods to do the 15 scav kills, then move onto customs next. Spawned a scav last night carrying a lab card and some keys. Ran out and turned out the keys were more valuable. Easy half a mill. Makes dying to a random headshot in the next game more bearable.

    For me Shoreline is the best looking map and has varied enough area's to enjoy most styles of gameplay. The bottlenecks are a little less in your face than Customs as well.
