15 mins queue - start a scav raid - stuck in "awaiting session start" loop for 10 mins - alt+f4 out and try to get back into the raid - "awaiting session start" but now it allows me to back out - "leaving game" for 10 mins - alt+f4 - back in 15 mins queue - my other scav with SVD and Pilgrim is gone and I now have a Toz and fuck all.

So how is everyone's day going?

ID: hswk46m

the servers are being potato again. had a pmc raid with the awaiting session start shit as well. had to close game and start again to get into the raid. honestly bsg need to at least give us an option to back out of the raid anytime just for these server issues

Just now discovering this game, and I really want to buy it. However, am I going to have a terrible time being so new with no teammates?

Edit: Bought it. First game got 2 scav kills then died from a PMC waiting for me to finish looting. I'm hooked.

ID: hstix2c

It's rough alone as a completely new player, but there are tons of guides now. I played for nearly a year alone before convincing some friends to play, and never really had any issues after learning the basics. Just avoid fighting squads whenever you can, and get good with noise discipline.

ID: hstl4ga

Right on, thanks. So still worth buying?

4 : Anonymous2022/01/16 02:06 ID: hsuilee

My friend and I were scavving and his scav’s last name was puushin and mine was poullin or something

5 : Anonymous2022/01/16 09:10 ID: hsvr9mo

QOL suggestion: let us sort tasks by maps in the tasks list. I now have 36 active tasks (plus dailys/weekly) and figuring out which map to go on for the next raid and which tasks to complete is cumbersome to put it lightly.

Also let us turn in task items and complete tasks from the tasks list instead of having to enter each trader individually and remember who put on which tasks.

6 : Anonymous2022/01/16 01:42 ID: hsuf6pi

Is anyone having issues with their scavs? I queue up for a scav run, and it just says awaiting session start for 20 minutes before I have to alt f4.

ID: hsufsy0

Got a random "Server Connection Lost" during my last raid, killed my PMC and didnt let me reconnect, closed game and both cleared cache and verified integrity, rebooted, now constantly getting awaiting session start on my pmc until it decides to kick me pack for server connection lost

Thought I could push through the server issues and still have fun this wipe. Aparantly not since so far I've only had 1 completed raid off a scav run without connection issues

7 : Anonymous2022/01/16 05:29 ID: hsv84c6

So servers are so full that I have to wait just to launch the game but it takes me 10+min just to get into a match once I’m finally in? What’s going on? I’ve ate dinner and watched a Netflix show and I’m still waiting to play

8 : Anonymous2022/01/16 15:31 ID: hswqyzi

This game is a bundle of spaghetti code lately...backend errors out the ass. Blinking items. Try to join raid but suddenly the ready/back buttons dont work. ALT-F4 for any of those reasons and back in queue baby!

9 : Anonymous2022/01/15 21:27 ID: hsteixp

just got the game a week ago and i've got a pretty good handle on customs and factory, but why do all my tasks now lead to woods?

It seems like a nightmare map to push new players towards. I've spent as much time on it as customs and i'm still just as lost, even with a map up on the second screen.

Does it not need a few more obvious landmarks, did anyone else really struggle with it when they first started?

ID: hsti0pn

Woods can be understood if you locate a few places you can encounter. Things like Scav House, Old Station, Main Sawmill (south), river in north with car extract and scav bridge, radio tower at scav bunker. Compass might help you also. If you're looking for Jaeger, which you should be, find the crashed plane, you'll see the wooden structure from it.

ID: hstouqu

yea i'm slowly learning it, got the jaeger task done. it's just very confusing because the woods all mostly look the same and they cut off any kind of landmark you can head towards/away from. I tend to make large loops and come back to where i started 😀

ID: hstmx82

Get the compass, it helps a ton. Also use the biggest rock as a sortof center of the map. Up north the powerlines are good to follow.

ID: hstx5c6

The big mountains off in the distance are dead north.

Sniper Rock is in the center.

I think you can see at least one of those landmarks from any point on the map.

I love losing all my gear because the server I was placed in has a ping of 200+, this game is so fun...

ID: hsupkjl

Thought it was just my wifi (probably also a factor) but then I closed and reopened the game and was welcomed with a 18k person que,had to change to only 2 servers that were under 100 ping in order to play a raid without disconnecting

11 : Anonymous2022/01/16 15:58 ID: hswutkh

Servers are absolute trash. Optimization my ass. 50k+ queues I just want to play the damn game.

12 : Anonymous2022/01/16 15:41 ID: hswsfv0

They go on about how theyre fixing all these back end issues and then 2 days after the tweet were right back at 50k queues and backend errors after the first raid, like someone else said, the game is just a bundle of speghetti code rn and it really feels like the devs are just sitting back and having a laugh

13 : Anonymous2022/01/15 21:04 ID: hstb85k

are the servers usually this bad?

ID: hstcnvp

They have been since the wipe on 12/12

ID: hstq69p

just this wipe. a wipe or 2 ago they were the best they had ever been.

14 : Anonymous2022/01/15 22:54 ID: hstra10

No idea where to post this, but just experienced a bug with insurance. I queued for reserve that wsa taking 30 min and i canceled the queue. I came back to my items being uninsured.

15 : Anonymous2022/01/15 23:09 ID: hstthb9

Scav queue times are horrendously bad.

16 : Anonymous2022/01/16 00:29 ID: hsu4v8p

I’m on 20 runs looking for tubes on lighthouse I’m about to give up.. are they even worth looking for as a scav?

ID: hsum0f1

I’ve found every rare loot spawn on lighthouse and still haven’t seen a single military tube. I had more luck finding Aesa spawns on reserve when everybody was farming them than I am finding these damn tubes. I just want my heating done and I refuse to pay that much

ID: hsumk2b

I have found 3 of them on scav lighthouse so far this wipe, and 1 on my pmc.

ID: hsvqhvt

You’re better off just making money on the Scav runs to pay for them, yes it sucks. But at least your green batteries are significantly cheaper now.

17 : Anonymous2022/01/16 01:30 ID: hsudlnl

4/5 matches of Factory im being spawn camped : need more factory spawns

ID: hsuhfqh

spawn camp the spawn campers before they can spawn camp you

ID: hsuhmdr

Oh shit that's what I'm doing wrong

18 : Anonymous2022/01/16 03:03 ID: hsuqlxg

Shout out to the 4 man group that didn't kill me and instead had me follow them to the Factory gate extract on woods. I've never done that before

19 : Anonymous2022/01/16 16:18 ID: hswxrho

Game crashes back to menu constantly now with a long loading screen.

20 : Anonymous2022/01/16 16:26 ID: hswyw0n

Unplayable game

21 : Anonymous2022/01/16 20:37 ID: hsy2pw1

Queue for 30 mins in a 40k at 8pm GMT. Come back after 30 mins of waiting.... Kicked out of queue... Re-queue with another 40k queue? What the fuck?????? Do BSG expect me to be mindlessly clicking on the fucking launcher every 2 mins so I don't get kicked for inactivity????BSG SORT UR SHIT OUT I GENUINELY DONT HAVE TIME FOR THIS SHIT

22 : Anonymous2022/01/16 23:35 ID: hsytqp3

Did I miss something or are there recently more traitor scavs? Got killed by other player scavs on my last 3 runs. Note: EU servers

23 : Anonymous2022/01/16 05:20 ID: hsv75m7

Veritas just went on a twenty minute rant about getting a drink and users in chat using an ellipsis to imply he’s an idiot. Jesus what’s wrong with this guy?

ID: hsvdsbu

Bloke needs help thats for sure.

24 : Anonymous2022/01/16 10:05 ID: hsvve61

I am so fucking annoyed that Scavs can join my PMC raid and hit the loot spots before I can. Like what's even the point of playing PMC when zero-risk Andy and his 5 buddies can kill me for all my loot?

25 : Anonymous2022/01/15 21:13 ID: hstciyt

Hope everyone has a great week.

26 : Anonymous2022/01/15 22:05 ID: hstk17p

For weekly tasks, how do I interpret the timer? If the timer says "1 Day" and then some hours, does that I mean I have less than a day or 24 Hours + however many hours?

ID: hsu0oty

24 hours plus some more. It will only show 23 hours and some minutes when it's your final day.

27 : Anonymous2022/01/15 23:30 ID: hstwgwp

So question about armor and bullets. Does distance from a shooter increase my armors chance of blocking a bullet?

ID: hstwytw


ID: hsu1vzg

It decreases damage as well.

28 : Anonymous2022/01/16 00:13 ID: hsu2o16

I listed a military tube on flea. Encountered an error while listing, took my approx 600k fee from me but the item didn't list and is gone from my stash. Anything I can do?

29 : Anonymous2022/01/16 00:44 ID: hsu72a9

Where's the best place to loot a lot of weapons crates? Trying to get the 60-rnd M4 mag for gunsmith 4

ID: hsufy4c

You can get the build easier with the mechanic barter trade for 7 GP coin. It comes with a D60 mag. Did the trade to be able to start Tarkov shooter
