Re: anyone play survivors?

May 20, 2014

such an inferior game mode. When you realize that horde mode is and will always be the superior mode, you will know why survivors is so inferior.

True Balance:
We felt that the Hunting Rifle wasn’t effective enough at mid-range due to its very slow fire rate. While every weapon doesn’t have to be as effective at every range, so much combat occurs at short to mid ranges in The Last of Us that we felt the Hunting Rifle felt was not effective in enough situations. By increasing its damage the Hunting Rifle user is now more likely to get a down on a wounded player, or can combo a Hunting Rifle with a pistol to try and fight effectively at mid-range.

Nah man.

There is no "different strokes for different folks" hippie BS up in here.

You either weak or you strong. None of that gray area nonsense.

In the words of Tupac: A coward dies a thousands deaths. A soldier does but once.
So, supply raiders and interrogators are cowards and survivors is where it's all at?

if you're pro, you won't die in supply raid or interrogation, and not dying in those modes is more of a challenge than survivors

Go hunt for treasure. And when you find it, pick it up, put it back and walk till you can walk no more.

Thing you missed is, you can camp in SR just like Survivors and not get killed.  Does that make someone a pro?  If so then I see an onslaught of camping in obscure locations in various maps that is off the beaten path.

it's also easier to camp in survivors. You only have to last a couple minutes per round and chances are the enemy won't have near as many things to flush you out with when compared to SR, seeing as your craftables and such go away each round. On the flip side, Since Supply raid lasts much longer and people move about more there as well as more easily amass supplies, camping is much less effective.

 

Although, to me, camping is pointless anyway, that falls upon the noob who decides to do it, not so much the mode.

I started out in SR, then got sick of people camping out in the 2nd floor rooms of those obscure off the beaten path parts of various maps that rarely see action unless it's last man standing, plenty of Noobs and etc armed with a HR playing peek a boo with the scope.   University, Checkpoint and Downtown maps have plenty of  obscure areas you can camp and not be found with ease.  At least in Survivors, it's a shorter torture fest of watching this or not having true 4v4 the entire match.
