  1. I know, It's actually 200-400 meters. I've tested it by setting a move mark and moving away to set FOB. I agree it's not a good fix but, I also see the devs reasoning in doing so.
  2. Well it's been about 2 weeks and I'm enjoying everything about the controller. I can't see myself going back to mnk any time soon for shooters. Firstly I'm not MLG nor a peasant shaming try hard. I just love gaming and like to sit back and relax while doing so. With my steam controller I am no longer hunched over stretching my fingers into early arthritis. This thing isn't your average dualshock 4 or xb1 controller this thing has incredible customization. Movement is easy if not better than keys. No more bending my fingers backwards to sprint and broadcast voice now it's just a press of the paddle. Crouch and Prone are a quick bumper away and jump is a familiar A smash. Under my config. aiming is done by the track-pad and the gyro! That's right I get to use both hands and move the whole controller to aim. Of course there is a learning curve I've spent several hours tweaking it the way I like but, I can honestly say aiming has not hampered my competitiveness at all in fact I'd say in vehicles and turrets its improved! The trackpad swivels those vehicle turrets swiftly as well as turning around as infantry (yes I'm on casual servers for all you elitist). As far as what I said about being wrong handed, the problem isnt with strategy or how I play. We have to adapt to every tool that is given to us considering most things are designed for the other 90% of the pop. My whole life has been re configuring things to make them work for me. So yes, it is both a blessing and a curse. I may have sold myself short by saying keys are not native. I've grown up playing shooters on both PC and console. Re-configs. are not alien to me. Personally I couldn't play the way you have it set up with the mouse in the right hand but, I've also posted my lefty keys set up on another forum. People who are set in their ways are often the ones who will cry heresy whenever something new is introduced. Steam controller is a viable option for open minded people. Whether you are left or right handed competitive or casual you have to have to be open to try it before you decry it. Until you've put 2500 hours into a steam controller you can't determine that it would be better or worse than what you are used to.
  3. I'm sure they did it to balance. Before you could just bury the cache in sandbags and barb wire making them nearly impossible to destroy. I still think INS needs some more tweaking before it's balanced. a 200-400 meter range to set a fob is too limiting imo. some of the maps the resupply points are so close the radius of the FOB zone overlap each other so you cant even set one in between points off the caches.
  4. This has happened twice now where our SL abandoned us so I went to go change to an SL kit at an ammo crate and the bubble got stuck on my screen. Tried minimizing the game and pressing esc. It even stayed there into the next game. The only way to get rid of it was to leave the server
  5. Did you guys add a range in which you could set a FOB near a weapons cache in insurgency or is that a server setting?
  6. Being left handed the steam controller is really enticing to me. Even after re-arranging my keyboard it still does not feel native to me. Nothing really does, everything has to be adapted to but, the steam controller seems like a more universal option for us wrong handed people. I actually just got one in the mail yesterday. Spent a couple hours re-arranging the controls. It was surprisingly easy to configure considering all of the nightmare reviews I've read online. Still not perfect and I can imagine I will be doing a lot of tweaking in the next few months till I get something I'm comfortable with. I am impressed with the quality of the steam controller build. Although I've only had it for a day. The mouse wheel is incredibly responsive and sensitive, the buttons are tact. I can imagine with some practice this thing could be a real competitor to a mnk set up. I will be going balls deep into this for the next few months in order to determine the fate of the controller and update my review. Overall I am optimistic that this will grow on me and improve my control. If anyone is curious to see my left handed set up or wants to share their's add me on steam SonofMarsV
  7. Yes this adds to my point on why I think it's within the devs capabilities to add camo nets as a deployable object
  8. I know this thread is kind of old but I had a thought worth sharing on a deployable that I think would be easy to implement, add to immersion and play an important role in building a sweet FOB. My idea is camo nets to better hide wooded fobs. As many of you have seen most fobs are build in high walled, well defendable areas, preferably close to a flag. But sometimes I like to set up in the woods in-between objectives to offer better troop movement to more flags. The only downside to this is a giant hesco structure tends to stick out in the woods a bit. If we had some kind of camo nets to cover them with (or carpets for insergent forces) it could offer us more versatile fob options. What better time to implement this than when helicopters enter the scene. I can forsee those high walled obvious fobs becoming increasingly obsolete to far away chopper fire. A camoflauged wooded fob may be a more viable option in the near future.
  9. This may be an obvious solution but, make sure your laptop is plugged in while gaming. Some laptops have power save settings when battery gets low and can greatly hinder your fps.
  10. lmao
  11. This is the easiest key binding I could muster up considering the hard code on the number pad and not having to switch as much. Ie. Map, comms, jump.. etc
  12. okl semi-colan, forward, back, left, right. Switch Sprint from left to right shift. Apostrophe for reload. J for prone. U for interaction. The only thing that will be left for you to reasign will be the team and all chat. Oh and don't forget I and P for peak left and right. Good hunting fellow lefties
