thats true for most in-development games, and this is beta, but I think the keyword here is "was", I havent seen any cheaters, and have had some fun so far, very challenging game.. as for spawn campers I would love to understand how this one would work, maybe its bad for scav players that come in later in the game? regular players start from the beginning of the match

What's up with the "Payment System Fee"? It adds a few bucks regardless of payment method. Still bought it because I have been waiting for the sale. Thanks for the post.

Just a warning to the uninitiated.. This game is in an awkward spot but it's temporary. There are massive server issues due to an influx of players but I have complete faith in the devs and know they are working really hard at it. There's also currently a big issue with cheaters but they added BattlEye to the game late last year and it'll catch up to them.

You should know that this game is built around the "hardcore" mentality so they don't spell anything out for you. Not even the basics of how to play (get out of the "raid," heal, reload, etc.) It takes a lot of play time to master and even then you'll learn new things all the time. It's one of the most detailed, rewarding, and challenging games out there. I recommend watching a streamer who plays the game like it's meant to be played like Smoke for learning. There are a ton of guides and helpful posts/pages out there and plenty of people in discord servers who are willing to help.

Re: extract camping... there are a lot of new players who are scared shitless and are trying to get gear by any means. It's a sign of how much growth there has been in the player base.

Xsolla is infamous but it's far worse for countries that pay VAT so look on the bright side. I recommend using paypal through xsolla.

It has, because they want to add 5 more maps, bosses, and a single player mode. The problem is they don't have AAA backing, so it is difficult to control the player base with such a small company. It might ruin the game integrity, but I would love if Microsoft or another company who could deliver solid server support. Also the game is not optimized which makes running the game more difficult than it has to be.

They upped the extract time on all maps, I have done probably 500 runs and been camped 3 times. It is a big waste of time, unless your on factory even then you can get a key that gives you two more exits

Hi, do you own escape from tarkov? do you want to sell your account? Been wanting to play but don't want to pay full price.
