Please let it be a decent SWAT game. It's been too long
Yep. This was one of the original stretch goals for the project as far as I can tell.
This guy gets it. I play almost exclusively as a medic and my best moments are joking around with the guys I'm trying to revive. Other times I'm watching the entire squad go down and take the 50/50 chance of clearing out an area to revive just enough of them. Hilarious moments ensue.
But UPHILL... BOTH ways!
Don't you guys get it? He works on "the internet" so he's "lazy." Come on everyone, gotta work on your old man narrative. Damn kids.
Don't you whippersnappers know that it's not a real job, unless you are a wage slave working for the majority of your waking life on minimum wage barely being able to afford to stay alive. All while someone else gets rich off your hard work?
While I completely agree with Valve generally being lazy when it comes to customer support. I don't exactly know what you expect from them in regards to this gambling issue. You cannot gamble using any of Valve's platforms or sites. In order to crack down on the third party sites, they would need to investigate who is gambling what and where, which would be incredibly expensive and, I think at least, somewhat unreasonable to ask of them.
They could modify the system for trading which these sites use to move the skins around but it's already pretty restrictive as it is. I fear if they became any-more restrictive that they might just do away with trading in general which would be kindof shitty.
Not trying to be critical of you or anything. Just wondering what you think they should do?
Yeah, it's a near impossible situation to handle. I'm not sure what the Gambling Commission expects of them either, short of shutting down the trading system completely which no one wants.
If the API is going to remain as open as it is, and without the possibility to add some kind of automatic policing feature, the only option is for Valve to step up their game on the human front. Hire people to curb things like this before they get out of control to the point where Gambling Commissions are coming after you. They won't stamp out all of it, but at least they can avoid things like this.
Will Valve do it though?
Yes, in the recent BF games there has been a "Hardcore" game mode where weapons do more damage and there are no UI cross-hairs, only iron-sites and optics. I assume this game mode made it into BF1 seeing as it has the rest of them.
Thanks, Segur. Do you know if the crosshairs can be turned off in single player?
Fixed! Thanks for pointing it out.
