Pestily making this video is just proving my point of stopping this wipe BS or at the very least make it optional to wipe when a update comes out. I only play during the summer time due to school and all, so when a wipe happens typically end of the semester for me, I only get enough time to get to about level 25, some decent money, and about half way through the quest line to the gamma container. It pisses me off that when it comes around to wipe and I have to start that shit all over again and this guy has it as a full time job being sweaty like jesus christ, the only people happy about wipes are those who have nothing better to do than play games every second get. Not only that the fact he can do all that other shit with challenges, play styles, and in a way free play is kill it for me. I play a raid here and there only for the adrenaline rush but don't even bother with the game because it wipes to often.

The healing/medical gameplay is so dumb. For a game that prides itself on being brutal and realistic, you can dump a full mag into a guy, he turns around and 1 shots you, and then lies in a bush doing surgery on himself, fixing all his broken bones and severed arteries, and then gets up and strolls out of the map. It's so fuckin dumb. This game exists to give the tryhards a boner about themselves about how tacticool they are, nothing more. I'll pass thanks.

I like how he frames it in a positive way, but its clear this game is on its last leg. And the gameplay has become a stale version of COD which requires tedious leveling of skills. Instead of the unique experience that even an old ass buggy mess of a game like DayZ offers better than tarkov atm.

I've stopped playing this wipe too. I'm around 1200hrs, this wipe quit about lvl25. Didn't enjoy some of the changes, lack of new content etc.

I stopped playing shortly after I bought the gamma. They released the scav karma patch and between that and the rampant hackers I felt like i couldn't ever get ahead in the game. I never knew if I was learning a lesson or just getting screwed over. Every match was stressful and typically ended in me getting domed out of the blue.

I gave up on the game a while ago and didn't even try it this wipe. There's just no point, siht has been stale for me, and I don't think that any new maps, weapons and doodads will fix that issue. After you get accustomed to the game (which is not that difficult if you focus on particular maps or find profitable routes that you can run again and again) it just turns into a run of the mill arena shooter with some extra hoops. Accumulation of knowledge is nice to some extent but even that and all the other systems of accumulation/progression serve only to streamline the process of getting into fights. Pick some gear, load into a map, go around looking for those adrenaline fueled fights, repeat. Tasks and levels are a weak carrot on a stick that I'm only doing for the completion's sake (if im doing them at all), and once you're done with them there's nothing left to do outside of plain fighting and personal meme challenges. Just the fact that wipes are required to keep things fresh is an indicator that something is seriously wrong here when it comes to long term play.

I played tarkov for one wipe and I dont think the game is ever going ever going to be finished and that's the worst part of the game. The game is going to be the same couple a years from now on only minor updates and probably one new map added to the game. Once you play a wipe you have basically seen the game and then its a repetition of itself. I got lucky and got in at a time when they put new expansion to the woods so that map improved a lot but otherwise new content is really far and between. Also its really player unfriendly, the game requires hours and hours just to learn how to use the inventories and other UI mechanics even when I had someone to show the ropes straight from the get go. When playing a new map as a new player the most time of becoming good at the game is outright memorizing the map layout because otherwise you don't know where the hell you're going in the game. I mean they are either locals (scavs) or trained ex military personel so it wouldnt be unreasonable for them to know where they are at any given time so it wouldn't be unrealistic to have a map where you could check for your location with a gps or something along those lines. When playing this game casually on the weekends its not worth the effort to waste time on learning the maps and mechanics to just enjoy the gameplay itself. Worst part of the gameplay at the time and probably still is the audio of the game for me in a hardcore game like this. There was veritas video about it how the audio works in the game and its outright stupid only because they cant define textures for the surfaces in the game and let steam audio handle the rest so you instead get this crap audio if you're inside a building. Eventually I think someone will make a game with the same concept and use a different engine than unity and that will be a game worthwhile playing and it still would be finished sooner than this game :D

100% agree and understand you brother! i said the same stuff over and over and over again the last 4 months: no REALLY new content since (nearly) 2 years, really bad made map updates recently (factory) and tons of annoying bugs, glitches and not logical stuff made me quit this game. playing since january 2018, running 3 accounts (me and my sons). i simply deinstalled it because it frustrated me way too much. i totally get you 100% therefore and will have your back also in future - no matter what game you play. its fun watching you, whatever you play.

Idk how you’ve played it as much as you have, I don’t watch streamers but idk how y’all do it. The games been stale for me since reserve got released. The game needs some depth behind the mechanics. More than tasks. I really think a plot line or in game lore would help and go a long way, as well as a voip and customization. There’s a lot to add, but it doesn’t feel like they’re adding anything other than weapons and slight QOL tweaks. Best of luck dude.

"wipe every 3 months was better". Maybe if you can play as often as you do.... between cheaters and working 12 hours a day, wipes crushing AF.... Gave up on Tarkov because it's just not fun anymore. Same gofer missions only harder or convoluted. Same pain in the ass jaeger missions that sit unfinished. investing time is an investment... that disappears when they feel like it. When it's good it's damn good, unfortunately the good bits are getting further and farther between.

Tarkov would be my favorite game, If Nikita added a way to see the people you queued in raid with (Like your friends name above their head during raid.) I know it removes a level of skill, but it would make group fights more focused and it’d be cool probably. Like two people could team up on a mega chad with much more coordination. Your teamwork could add a new layer of gameplay possibly. I know it’ll never be added. It’s not very realistic, But a man can dream.

I dont think the auction house and flea market should be locked behind a level req. People late to a wipe or people who dont grind one game for 10+ hrs a day have absolutely 0 chance once the year+ vets meta game their way to the best tier gear and end game stuff. Its already hard enough to make some solid money if youre a new player or if you show up late to wipes, if you manage to not lose it all, you should be able to spend it. Most of my friends who are new, never played eft at all usually lose all their money before they even get to lv 20. Even before when it was locked behind lv 10 my first time i had no money.
