INS Legacy

Midnight Thoughts

Posted in insurgency by Argyll on October 18, 2009

Rumour has it, I don’t officially know since the INS programmer has posted it in his developer log that is not available to the public, that the next patch will be released this week.

Is this 2.2? 2.3? I’m not sure what version it is, since they haven’t really decided to name it yet. I had ideas for 2.5 that were on Source, to portray Afghanistan, but alas, we are only stuck with Karam. Those ideas were rejected by the current leadership.

I still don’t know what OFP2:DR is like, since they haven’t released the demo yet, but what is currently eating my time away is Project Reality for BF2. They also portray Afghanistan, particularly Korengal Valley. Not like the NYTimes does though. Too bad there isn’t a game company to fund a photographer like Louie Palu or Rafal Gerszak to photograph Afghanistan accurately for them. Or too bad a game designer has not yet reached war for the purpose of accurately depicting the combat experience for the medium.

The certain element that sets PR apart from INS, although I did witness this in INS albeit not as often as in PR, is the players. I join a squad playing PR and there is collaboration galore. That is all I wanted for Insurgency, just collaboration amongst team members in game. It all comes down to the players, right?

Before you abandon all hope with Insurgency, hopefully they will patch some things, and Alex Zandor will complete his Zgoda map. Until then, you can try the current installment of Zgoda on the TDB Custom Levels server, or likely on a European or Brazilian server.

Also, Luger’s US Army skins go much better in the temperate setting.

    Zgoda is indeed a very nice map!

    Top 2 in my favourite custom maps list =).

    unfortunately whilst that rumour is true it has also been posted to say there are still problems and RL delays. Maybe this “summer” update it will come sometime in November.

    So disappointed TBH. The updat ewas announced in July and final testing in August over nearly 2 months ago. Why am I so disappointed? Not because I want to troll against the devs but its because I think Insurgency is THE best FPS game out there for me. It is such a great game, better than all the retail modern combat currently on the market by a country mile and it received half of the care and attention it needed to push it along to the place it could reach it could be the david amongth the goliaths. I’ve ran at least one server for two years now and it still has me wanting more as I know there is alot more this game can give. Our community is currently investigating a game to move to as playes have become so disillusioned with it. With a great update and a chance to get some larger team matches (rather than 5 v 5) I am sure INS would live on (especially for us!).

    My 2 cents on OFP2:DR

    -Too arcady

    -Still fun

    -I still got spawncamped by some asshole in an Abrams

    -No cheat protection

    -Multiplayer is FUBAR clusterfucked POS, there’s no dedicated servers. The pings are fucked up.

    – Some multiplayer bugs are present (i.e. your mouse stops working :) )

    Also Argyll, you’ve talked about a traitor that foiled the attempted coup de’tat. Is it possible to get that persons name. I’m just curious who it is.

    Have a good one

    P.S. Does the name starts with “E”?

    I wish it started with an E, but anyone with the name beginning with E was deliberately kept out of the loop. As was anyone with J, ending in 224, and starting with Dr.

    It was a C, as in cunt.
