  1. Sound promising Ruggbutt.

    Wolfsong, I understand you don''t want to say something "may" happen. When it may not. And the people would be in an uproar.

    But in that case, TELL us it won't/can't be fixed. That it WILL take too much time, or that it WILL be in a later patch. Then there would be no uproar. No matter if you said it could be done or not. Letting us know would at the least keep people around.

  2. Be careful GRIN. Look at what happened to the R6V community when they were deprived of patch info for half a year. The mods on the R6V forums were all like "Ooooh well we can't discuss patch info because its confidential. We won't tell you if we're even working on it or what it will address." Kinda like what you're starting to to here.

    Now look at the game. Theres nobody playing and the community died. I dont understand all the confidentiality behind patching a game. Its not like you're giving out nuclear launch codes, it's a patch for a game. Why does UBI have to be so secretive?

    Is a simple "Yes we are working on a patch" that hard to confirm? If I buy a bike and it doesn't work properly or does not have some thing it should have had in the first place, I call the bike shop and ask for a repair. The bike shop doesn't say "oooh well we are not going to tell you if we can repair your bike or not. Sorry its confidential." They say "Okay bring the bike in we will have it fixed up by monday."

    I just don't see why it's so hard, is all

    Look familiar?

    How about true thoughts, not just kissing up.

  3. SS tool??? Its that [Print Scrn] button on your keyboard...

    But, as seen in RvS, I can SS you and photoshop it so damned well, you "could" be banned. Are you going to police all the SS's and videos? Who do you expect to do so?

    The only type of SS which player take note of are PBSS from PB and if you want to have a go at faking a PBSS go head, at PsB we have got tool which can see a fake PBSS a mile of

    Back to this topic.

    Please let grin do there job, sometimes it can take weeks to come up with a patch to stop a hack, Grin may have to do a lot of recodeing to stop this hack so give them sometime and let them do there job..


    I was speaking about NORMAL Prnt Screen, screenshots. Something we would have if we had NO A-C.


    If we had PB and PBSS, we wouldn't be having half this convo? Keep up. (JUST HALF)

    And good GOD don't tell me what PB "would" do. Cause like I said, I played RvS from the jump and wasn't that impressed. I never got a response from anyone on PB staff about anything for years. NOW SUDDENLY you come around telling me what you "would do/could do."

    I'm guessing you just want Grin to contact you for support? Little bit more money, yes? They didn't come running for PB like you had hoped seeing this topic started???

    And I AM letting Grin do their job. I'm just asking for some idea of what that may be? We all are.

  4. The replay tool??? Like they said, only relevant in competition situations. (which would be nice) Otherwise we already have one, its called Fraps.

    SS tool??? Its that [Print Scrn] button on your keyboard...

    But, as seen in RvS, I can SS you and photoshop it so damned well, you "could" be banned. Are you going to police all the SS's and videos? Who do you expect to do so?

    When I send you a ban hash, are you going to believe me? No, we would need proof. But if not SS's then its up to fraps. Did Fraps see that guys apparent wallhack?? Nope.

    |RA| ftw???

    Only if the 'replay tool' could 100% see what the hacker is seeing. Will it? With a server side command to fire it up?... Or are we gonna stockpile video? Things could get slow.

    Or maybe a quick button for server SS? Or a video toggle for any selected player?

    I agree with an M.B.L. type list. Will we have one?

    Otherwise you already have the tools...

    /ban... go to ban list{ctrl+c} ...go to website{ctrl+v} As we all have already done with the 8incher(-5 ")... And thats just because he was completely obvious about it.

    Eager to brainstorm on what 'can' be done.


    This is my 1st G.R. experience, I am ignorant about the replay tool, how did it work?

  5. LOL, they have our money, just as before. Are we all gonna buy the next one??

    Hackers will continue to hack, whiners will continue to whine. Exploiters will, you know. etc.etc.

    Played Ravenshield since the demo. They(the powers that be) stopped caring about one of the most popular games ever years ago...Why you ask??

    > 11.30.04 - New Rainbow Six Game Announced! <---(Last news given on www.raven-shield.com)

    > 10.25.04 - Raven Shield Patch v1.6 and Athena Sword Patch v1.10 NOW AVAILABLE

    New game announced. Thank you, come again, give us your $50. GGs

    If you were Ubi, PB, any company. i.e. MICROSOFT. Would you care about an old product you already made your money on??? Hell no. You will continue to put all of your resources into your 'new' product to SELL. To make more 'money' to make the next game "better." Which means you will have to buy a new video card, because the 'new' game won't run on your 'old' card. Its an endless cycle. And we just keep chasing.

    But then again, what would YOU do in their situation?

    Not discrediting Grin, they may be different. I doubt it. But I wouldn't blame them. And it won't matter. They can't spend infinite time and resources on ONE games anti-cheat and police it. I wouldn't.

  6. What are we even talking about anymore. There is a problem with the weapon. I haven't seen a meaningful post since page 12.

    Morphing said it, and it doesn't get any simpler.

    Assault Rifles: Headshot- KILL

    3 to the body- KILL

    (Now heres where it gets tricky)

    Sniper Rifles: Headshot- KILL

    m14 and MSG90: 2 to the body- KILL

    M99: 1 the head, chest, elbow or pinky toe -KILL


    Yes, in reality anyone struck anywhere by the m99 would probably be rendered combat ineffective.

    Its the ability to quickscope and run n gun that makes the difference.

    It seems to me, while developing the game, they got the reaction time and scope time stats of the m14 and the m99 mixed. If they were to trade those stats, this thread wouldn't exist. And no one would need any cheese. Cause the m14 wouldn't be a 1 hit wonder.

    It needs nerfed and there shouldn't be any argument about that, the only reason to argue that.

    Is explained in my Signature.

  7. Lets gather 'round kids and be amazed. For your viewing Pleasure, here is an informative video on the proper use of the M99 Sniper Rifle. Enjoy!

    Link to Youtube


    And who was the one that challenged you to use the 99 on Arroyo? Looks like he can eat his words. :)

    That was the best piece of lame video I ever saw,

    Lets recap, you or a member of your team going around killing a load of disorganized armatures, you going into the spawn area of the other team to take kills, you demonstrating how easy it is to use a M99 as a rifle, where you had several misses and the opposition were so dumb, that they didn't even hear you running up to there area. No one bothered to tube you? just amazing, how nice, TeamHot.

    Lets get the facts straight if you want to use a M99 or any rifle against a load of kids to prove a point then your not making your point very well. When you fight against a true tac team then make your lame video if you can. But we don't do kiddy popping.

    Don't try to kid the wise.

    LOL why don't we scrim tonight... HOT with M99's vs BDA

    Thats what we'd call a good ole fashioned MASSACREEEE

  8. For the video i have to say... that team really sucked you went after. The admin also should have had at least 5 sec invul on.

    But it does show a good point. With a good graphics card and PC like mine... that is exactly how fast it reacts. It's not slow like a sniper. There is no steady hand needed. I think what is needed is just a 1 sec delay added to take it from hip to shoulder, so the sniper has to stop. And that also was a perfect example of what i call shotgunning (the quick shots)

    Exactly. I just entered a random server and and started hoofing it as fast as I could to the other side of the map to get into the face of the other team. This wasn't a skill video. This wasn't a glory video. This was just a video showing exactly how the M99 can be exploited to be used as a shotgun as you called it. (I describe it like that too when i talk to people on vent ;) ).

    The complaint I keep hearing is that snipers are supposed to be tactical. They are supposed to be hiding in spots. They are supposed to be in a bush. They are supposed to be looking for that lucky pick. However this weapon can favor the aggressive player as well. As a matter of fact, its actually more suited for the aggressive player. Merely shooting a players finger will cause him to die. It has near instantaneous zoom. And the quickshot, while difficult at times, is extremely effective at close to medium range.

    I guess more of a demonstration is needed. Wait till you fools can't go any direction cause everyone is using it. LOL The only way for an assault rifle to take one out is to hit the head, 3 to the chest and that 50 gunner has probably dropped you. Like they said, in the end everyone will be using a GL to counter it or a 99. And thats not how I want to HAVE to play. If you got skills, you will use and assault rifle and hit heads, and it WON'T matter what gun you use.




    P.S. When you see some UcG ladies, ask them to give you a demonstration, no matter what the teams. When 5 of them used that on Lagoon, you didn't leave spawn. You could rush close, but you will be shotgunned. Do we forget it has an auto pistol?????

  9. Personally, I don't mind the m99 that much. If it really really needs nerfed, add a reload time and that's it. However, the noob tube really needs nerfed.. going 20-2 with a noob tube is too easy to attain.

    To be honest I have a bigger problem with the "noob tube" as well.

    How do you go 20-2 with a nub tube, when you only have 2 grenade rounds. 20-2 would call for some shooting as well I would think.

  10. this all boils down to public servers at the end of the day and people playing with unlimited spawns.

    cant wait for clan matching to commence after speaking to the clans we have known for several years and have matched with on a regular basics playing the game types and rules we all like no re spawns and no tdm.

    we have no problem with the m99 basically because only a few will use it and do what its intended for sniping from a vantage point and laying still and not running about.

    so at the end of the day the m99 will not be banned from any of our servers nor will the gl.

    people sit here moaning about the way you can swing the gun around yet what about the support weapons that you can walk around the entire map scoped up so if you want to start getting picky about stuff boys and girls we could pull all the weapon apart for various reasons and have an awareness week every week for each gun.

    go team hot

    I agree, all the nubs and the clan-less preach to keep their "equalizer." But this game is all about team. And when

    the good servers come up and the restrictions are made. All will be happy.

    Nubs can stay on official servers with infinite spawns and no skill weapons, foddering each other all day.

    While the rest of us will be tactically moving as squads and not firing the m99.... STANDING UP!


    Looks like about 70 to 30, against. That 70% seeming to be the good players I already know.






    You're all kings. I've agreed with you almost 100%

  11. LOL, you mean watch those servers FILL UP with people who DONT need a nub tool to get kills? You are wrong. And the only reason you or anyone uses that gun is because its the easiest to get a kill with. If they patch the 50cal into crappiness, all the nubes, like yourself, will find the next easiest thing to use. Either way, our server will be full. With or without it.

    I do agree with body damage variance.

    Jungle map???? The Cut mb?

    P.S. Play the game for more than 5 minutes next time.

    TeamHOT server will be up in a matter of days. No m99. No GL. All Skill.

    Thats what I'm talking about. Ours will be the same, but until then, I'll be in your server.

  12. Hmm lets keep this on topic guys and not make it personal or it may get locked.

    As for nubs. All weapons, even a grenade takes a skill. The problem is the enemy may not have enough skill to avoid it, or approach from a not so well known angle. Are you sure it's not the non M99's like yourself that is a nub since you aren't using proper cover and trying to run them down?

    The M99 belongs in the game just as in GR1 the M82 was there and in GRAW1 the M99 was there.

    why didn't peeps complain in GRAW1? Because every weapon was extremly accurate even from the hip so they over powered it.

    Now the assault guys are mad because it's more balanced to the m99 possibly having an advantage.

    While I agree it should take longer to shoulder for those shotgunning with it, I do however don't think it's a nub (as quoted by some) gun nor should be removed.

    Well the last place I got it the worst was Lagoon. Trying to come around the right side with a guy on the hill. I was 99'd before I could even get a location on him. And I DID get in close, all the way up the hill and got "shotgunned" by the 99 from 5 to 10 ft.


    im gonna say the same thing id say if i was in the server with you ...

    quit bitchin and play it ... or leave

    Yeah I've heard that a few times.

    Thought we were trying to make this less personal so it didn't get locked??

    Comments on "the topic" are all I will be answering from here.

    See you soon Keifer.

    P.S. Play the game for more than 5 minutes next time.

    LOL, you discribe the cut as a jungle map? A park more like. Ive probably put more

    hours into GRAW2 than you.

    Lets not make it personal like he said.

    As for you having "probably" put more time in than me. I'm number 4 on the most active players list. Sooo Im thinking not. http://arena.gamespy.com/ladder/47811/page1/#ladder

    :D GGs

  14. AAskills...are you the same guy who was complaining so much the other night when your team was getting owned by assault rifles? If you're the same guy, (which you may not be so no offense if you aren't) but I shot you in the back so many times when you were't looking, and your movements were so predictable (if this was you). Please be easy on the "nub" comments:)

    Yeah that was me. Is how I roll. Sorry if I offended your delicate emotions.

    But in closing,I bet my "movement" (noise) was VERY predictable as compared to your "squatting/camping." (silence)

    Seeing as to the fact that I can't hear someones fear who is hiding from me. But I'm working on it!


  15. First thing I will add is that a just love using the m99, and so do many others. If its being filtered by servers then watch them servers stay empty.

    Its a similar weapon to the AWP on css, if someone is using it then I just grab a few grenades and the balance is equal. The same can be said about the m99, its balance is the GL.

    A couple of things about it that could be changed are that if im shooting at someones foot then it should reduce their health by for example 20%?? not kill them.

    I agree that if you are carrying one your sprint should be slightly slower than someone whos not carrying one and you cant aim if your not standing still.

    Its also the maps, now, if there are urban type maps with plenty of inclosed spaces the m99 would be a poor choice. Im waiting for a jungle map aswell, the gfx support this type of map and would be very popular IMHO.

    LOL, you mean watch those servers FILL UP with people who DONT need a nub tool to get kills? You are wrong.

    Ignore the reticule bloom, it means nothing with the M99 from what i have seen unless from the hip, then maybe.

    The straff running you see sometimes happens when someone is running goes straffe and goes to walk straff, snaps the scope up (with good vid card it's very fast) fires and goes back to run. Sometimes that happens and instead you seem to skip fire and skip.

    VIIPER in close combat there is limited hallways which is perfect for an m99 scope as u don't have to adjust much and if you hit any part of the body they die. The shotgun reference is because of the loud sound and instant kill. In a hallway that is only the width of a person, it might as well be a shotgun.

  17. We must be playing a different game here. I can assure you that you do not have to lead your targets in any way, shape, or form. One of the strongest points of this game is its near perfect Netcode. The only thing a high ping does for you is delay the time it takes the server to register the hits between the players and the server. Thats it. You can put a bullet into someone that has 500ms ping at a dead run, and it the bullet will register a half-second later. So when you say you have difficulties shooting running targets, that leads me to believe that your not a good shot :ermm:

    Yeah, you can do just as well in Euro servers as in U.S. for this reason. Granted you may notice some time between shot hit and death. Yesterday in 22nd server UK. I took a 50 cal hit, had a good, "oh ****" moment and dropped 5 secs later. Anywho hit them, they die.

    Yes Durka, I've been killed by someone before they even rounded a rock. But some people don't have this problem in my clan. I could see it being certain instances where corner on corner lag could effect a situation. But couldn't it even be computer specs or processor speed?

  18. I don't need a demonstration, I got 1 yesterday. Its a nub tube with 20 shots.

    On Lagoon, THE #1 UcG DirtDog (and his 4 nubmates) Got rocked by us for 1 round. Leaving Dirt with a wonderous 0-5. He promptly reconnects. And the whole crew goes to m99 and destroys everything that moves.

    Infect, Switchblade and DirtDog being the worst. In one particular situation I was killed 4 times, within 5 ft of the sniper, while strafe running side to side. Which seemed inconceivable to me without reticule lock. They had to be un-scoped... But with myself strafe running, they would've had to swing the gun un-scoped and the keep the reticules still close enough together to accurately put me down.And they did, 1 shot, 4 times, 2 different people, same spot as I was rounding the top on the hill, full speed.

    And if you wonder how they have so many consecutive wins... If needed, UcG hops sides at the end to collect wins. I have been told of many occasion where they cleared servers with the m99. But only after not being able win with assault rifles. Whens UcG awareness week?

    Poor Little Rabbit


    Patch it!

    1. m99 scope should take longer to get in scope.

    2. Should have to be prone to fire accurately.

    3. Reticule bloom should be the largest of any weapon. And the longest to get stable.

    4. Shouldn't be paired with the best pistol in the game.

    5. Should have smallest amount of armor while using the m99.


    1. Should be able to shoot while running. (Fingers don't work while legs are moving?)

    a. Obviously not very accurately, but not having this caters to the camp.

    2. Should be able to run while reloading. (Legs don't work while hands are moving?)

    3. MORE of a stun shake while being shot. (not sure what its called)

    a. Should be a lot harder to return fire while being shot.

    Small stuff!

    1. Death ticker.

    a.Should be able to see whats going on in the game after you die. (I've never seen a game where you have to ask your friends..."Did I get him??" Every time you die.

    2. Re-joining a game in progress.

    a. SHOULD be able to rejoin a game after being afk for 1 minute at the start of a round.

    b. Why should someone in game who left to use the bathroom, be penalized and have to restart, or wait 10 minutes for the round to end???
