I haven't been very active myself, but this evening I played several rounds. And it was fun. But I was wondering how many players are still actively playing the mod.
No this not one of those "The mod is dead" threads, as I was able to choose from 3 populated servers in my favs in the middle of the week in the middle of the night.

Well I'm connected again, and played yesterday a bit. But the first server I connected to had a pretty fishy guy on, "Yasou (plays with 3D-Glasses)" where I felt the urge to google his Steam ID. That's what I found (http://www.yarrr-gaming.com/sourcebans/index.php?p=banlist&searchText=STEAM_0%3A1%3A16224370&Submit=).

But on the next server was fun again, Yarr seems to have an up to date banlist. Allthough I don't have full admin rights like it seems. I could ban a Teamkiller only for a week, not perm.

Nevertheless, it was fun.

yeah i've played with him. he's very fishy. and at one point he even made his name into "Yasou (doesn't like being hidden)" and would forfeit his hidden selection and yet kill the hidde every single round.

yeah he was spotting the hidden easily from the first time I played with him... when i asked, since when he is playing this game (because i never saw him before), he answered "5 days" and that he "doesnt like to be hidden and prefers to play as Iris" (sure :rolleyes:)

hmmm... ive noticed something peculiar about the new waves of hidden players that pop up out of nowhere recently. they all have very good eyes and quick trigger fingers, yet once they become hidden, the skill level plummits, reducing them to pigsticking, triple nading/triple slashing noobs once more. ive just been specing some of the servers and this is increasingly more common. and i have asked a few of them and they tell me that they ask veteran hidden players how to best optimize their hidden seeing abiltiy in the graphics and whatnot. :cool:

Orfn
17th June 2010, 07:59
triple nading/triple slashing noobs

Don't harp on my play style =(

The first thing I was told when I said I couldn't spot the hidden was that I should turn the gamma settings up all the way and increase the brightness on my screen. It works pretty well, even without my contacts in. The good trigger finger is worth looking into, check their Steam accounts and see what kind of games they normally play.

Colonel Mustard
17th June 2010, 23:07
well sadly that play style is pretty much the cheapest one in this game. one of them named Healthy Proportions even told me today that "triple slashing takes more skill than physing does". As ridiculous as that sounds, this guy was totally serious. Now there are LOTS of these over-confident noobs that glorify them selves because they can get a 20-1 score on pigsticking, triple nading, and triple slashing. and quite frankly this is ruining the game for me. so i might go inactive(anti-thesis of this thread)

-SM-SUCKER
17th June 2010, 23:31
Actually physing can get you kills without even endangering yourself. You can fling stuff around corners, out from safe distances.
So if you are really good at killing with physics, it might be more difficult to kill with three slashes.

Colonel Mustard
17th June 2010, 23:46
So if you are really good at killing with physics

this is my point ^^^^ you cant just immediately go out and start insta phys killing when you first download the game, but you CAN just spaz click the left mouse button while standing next to the iris, while maybe moving around a little so he doesnt hit you.

If they are going to take insta phys killing away in B5, then they have to slow down the recharge of the knife because it is just too fast

well its gonna take a lot more than one good player to do that, its gonna take LOTS of them, best if it was all the old players if they came back. cause all they seem to do now is work on the mod or make maps, not actually play. And im still debating on whether or not to go inactive :confused:

Stay active, learn to deal with the noobs. With the triple slashing, it'll help improve your tracking and reaction times. You're forced to know where the hidden is and be able to spot him quicker so that you don't get triple slashed. Learn to see through the nade-fuzz like the vets did. There's always room for improvement

yes i suppose you are right about the triple slashing, but i can already see through the nade fuzz its just they are throwing 3 nades so that doesnt give you a chance if youre already in pieces >.> meh idk ill probly stay active since i love this game too much, but then again my last break was from august 2009 to February 2010 :0 maybe ill repeat this year

Ah, by triple slashing you meant getting all three hits in at once. I don't do that because it's not fun, even if it means I rarely win a round as hidden. I only use my pigstick on players who've pigsticked me so they can sit around watching everyone else play the round out normally. Normally I just slash and jump away/straight up and try to build some tension. I'd learn to phys but I don't really have the proper setup for it (wireless mouse, laptop on weird surfaces).

Skyrider
22nd June 2010, 01:31
I'm hit or miss really. I'll get into other stuff, then get the itch for a shooter and inevitably come back to Hidden.

I find it more fun than most commercial shooters in the long run and keep trying to get new people to try it. Shame how much the community has shrunk, but I'm as much to blame as the next guy.

Played a few rounds with Mustard last night. Damn I'm rusty as hell, but it was just as much a blast as ever.

Still play this mod from time to time.. Clearly still one of the most fun mod around. :)

Although sometimes new players who can't hit the hidden in frustration shoot other players... That is the only downside, so many TK'ers.

Orfn
12th July 2010, 22:29
Obvious solution is to join a server with FF disabled, which is the norm as far as I know. My biggest problem right now is joining full servers and going an entire hour without killing or being killed.

-SM-SUCKER
13th July 2010, 08:22
No friendly fire is the second best solution against teamkillers. Either mirror damage or some anti tk plugin is far better. Those that reflect the damage, and in the first x seconds into a round any teamwounding wont harm you at all.
Taking away the ff is like striping the knife from the Hidden.

Hi guys!
I've been away from hidden for over a year now..
So thats a 'inactive' from me :)

Might come back one day though, if I get myself a better computer!

PS: I think that the "noobs who see hidden so well" does so because of aiming and skills and what-not achieved in other third person shooters, in combination with better hardware and better graphics than some of the older players here started with. :)

On a more related note, just because the more experienced players don't approve of the way you play as hidden doesn't mean you have to stop playing that way instantly.
The fact that the people complaining probably know more about this mod than you do should make you try to improve and maybe come up with other ways of playing as hidden instead of raving on about them being assholes on the forum.

At least that's how I(and I assume everyone else who stuck around in the long run) handled it.

Seconded, it's becoming almost impossible to enjoy the game unless I get a bunch of older players to join up in one server and run out the newer players. A bunch of these shitheads come in and get stomped, so they leave and come back a little later with a reskin hack and then nobody is having any fucking fun because

a. They suck as Hidden and I can see them easily.
b. They're hacking and they can see me easily.

So what follows is several less-than-a-minute-long rounds of the Hidden dying before he can kill anyone in any way other than nade-spam.

And then there's the people who just have high-resolution monitors. The Hidden's opacity was fine 4 years ago. Now people with modern screens and vid cards can see easy as fuck and it takes crazy shit to kill them. The player-base in general is pretty fucking obnoxious aside from a handful of regulars. I don't know, I'm just fed up right now.
