For SnD break offs, how should I be running to go the fastest? Pistol out? Y Ying?

A couple of things I've been thinking about: **Any thoughts on how an economy mechanic (e.g. CSGO) would go in comp/LP?** No eco might prevent snowballing so matches are closer but a lucky underdog getting off to a good start could also make better competition. **Could longer format matches be better for competition?** It might not be the best for viewers but I'd personally love to see longer format matches (more BO7's, BO9, BO11 even) so we can really watch the teams work each other out and avoid weird upsets from short matches.

battlefield lets goooooo

Random - CodTracker says aBeZy's 74u accuracy is 42% so.....


Draculagged

Sheesh I thought mine at 34% was pretty good, 42 with a sub is outlandish


weapon-exx

Draculagged with the beamer, im at 31% in lp. Also either that site is fugaze or Dashy's not human because his 50% with the sub and 54% with the Krig.


MrBeastw00d

If Optic beat LRR today they are #1 seed in there group, correct?


weapon-exx

Yes, if Optic wins vs LRR or LAT they'll be first seed.


Joshmcintyre20

holy fuck dude. fuck activision. what the fuck is wrong with men (especially gamers)?? like legit, people talk about "not all men" and shit, but why the fuck would none of them speak up?? never spending a cent on anything acti related again, pissed i've gotten a couple of camos. im actually so heated right now after reading the lawsuit i can't even express it

> what the fuck is wrong with men (especially gamers) I'm legit embarrassed to call myself a gamer every time stuff like this happens. Like idk what's so hard with just being... Normal. Women aren't some kind of foreign species, and it's not difficult to be professional in the work place. > never spending a cent on anything acti related again, pissed i've gotten a couple of camos. im actually so heated right now after reading the lawsuit i can't even express it More people need to start doing this. Let's be honest, even if everyone here boycotted Activision, their games would still sell extremely well. Unfortunately people will read the story and go "Wow that's horrible," and then buy the next CoD, Diablo, etc. And it's a shame, because there are hundreds of people at Activision who aren't shitty and want to make a good game. I guess I'll have to go Halo or Splitgate to get my mp fix. And hopefully Battlefield is good too.


trouvi

yeah no im done with cod. gonna move to halo 100%


StubbornLeech07

> but why the fuck would none of them speak up? Likely because the ones willing to speak up likely weren't in a position where if they did speak up they wouldn't lose their job, so they stayed quite in order to keep their job. > never spending a cent on anything acti related again Hope you add Ubisoft and Riot to that list because both have dealt with similar issues.


trouvi

lmao i will add them to my list. I have literally only play cod, have no interest in other games until the new Halo. Haven't bought games from either of those publishers. not sure what your point is.


The_Killer_Dynamo

>Hope you add Ubisoft and Riot to that list because both have dealt with similar issues. I think this mentality is why companies always get away with stuff like this. There's always someone there to point out that since you can't change the world with one action you might as well give up trying.


StubbornLeech07

> I think this mentality is why companies always get away with stuff like this. Companies get away with it because the punishment doesn't fit the crime. The restitution that they will pay because of this will be pennies to a company that makes billions of dollars a year. They also get away with it because consumers ultimately don't care about the employees only the product. Sure some do and will stop buying their products but the majority will continue to buy their games and the micro transactions in those games and the company will never see a drop in revenue.


trouvi

"They also get away with it because consumers ultimately don't care about the employees only the product." that isn't necessarily true. and Dynamo is 100% right about your mentality (don't get the wrong idea, you're free to have your own perspective). But the way i see it, we'd be back in the feudal ages if people didn't come together to try and change the status quo. The collective action problem is very real, but one thing we do have control over is our own individual behavior.


PERCEPT1v3

Can I get a link to that vid of optic watching their latest win over faze and commenting. Edit: why the downvotes I can't be the only one who wants this
