  1. EFT Raider Name list

    Scav Raiders only have a nickname, below is a list of the different nicknames they can have: Akula Balu Bar Barrakuda Bars Berkut Dikobraz Gepard Grif Grizzli Gyurza Karakurt Kayman Kobra Kondor Lev Lis Mangust Mantis Medved Orel Pantera Pchel Piton Rosomaha Sekach Shakal Skorpion Stervyatnik Tarantul Taypan Tigr Varan Vepr Volk Voron Yaguar Yastreb Note this list does not include Bosses, Scavs or Bodyguards, but only Raiders. I provide it here in the case you run into a rare one and want to differentiate it from a player name. (Yaguar for example is quite commonly recurring whereas I have yet to come across Stervyatnik). With Patch .12 imminent, it is possible the list may change. I will edit the list if it does.
  2. EFT Announcement link

    Real time announcement link below. This Discord announcement page gets the info about the same time as Twit-er/FuckBook. I happen to hate those platforms, if that wasn't obvious, so this is for you if you are like me. ~Dim https://discord.gg/escapefromtarkovofficial (go to announcement page)
  3. Some of you who read or hang out here are not members... That's perfectly fine, we're cool with that in our section, but there are certain advantages of being a member that accrue not only here on the boards but also on Discord (like if you want to posts screenshots, etc). While not everyone goes in for contests and prize stuff, there is is that too... and it is a great place to find other games to play in groups many with their own dedicated channels on Discord. Not saying you have to be a member, but if you do WANT to be one, you can always see the link : https://www.adkgamers.com/adk-recruitment.html/ That is your starting point, following those steps indicates at least the minimum level of commitment the community expects. If you have a question about something in that post, PM me or Gary23 on Discord if you don't see us. ~Dim
  4. Private Op

    Ajax and I are looking for a third/fourth person for a private repeating op that will usually be run more than once per day (and probably more than one day per week) during the Summer and while the current conditions in 11.7 peresist. This takes advantage of a previously unknown set of behaviors of specific game subsytems that is _NOT_ either glitching or 'cheating' of any kind. This is an entrepreneurial situation where a discovery and experience have shown serious exp and other profit is possible. The op has risks, and the equipment demands - while nowhere near 'top-tier' - are not insignificant, and could result in short-term loss (which of course can happen in Tarkov doing just about anything ). The op has several specific jobs (requires at least three to work profitably) that each have to be performed repeatedly for people and equipment to get out safely. Obviously a minimum level of experience with the game and also probably at least tier two or three w/ all Traders and Class 20 or higher are minimum requirements. There can be periods of waiting, and always a significant marksmanship factor for a lot of the work, in-game-stealth and RW above average computer specs/net speed will also be useful. This is a premium opportunity, and we will only be choosing one person to add - so there has to be a commitment to repeating the op two or more times per evening for the days / times we agree on. While we would prefer someone we have already worked with, we will consider newcomers, although we will have to work together on some other things before we add you to the operation. Contact me by Discord PM ONLY please. ~Dim "Tarkovia Est Bellum! Ad Victorium!"
  5. Joining after So long

    Ajax and I are working an angle that a third/fourth person can easily earn EXP and equipment reaping in ridiculously high amounts. Like any Tarkov op it has risks, and the requirements for equipment are not unreasonable, but they are not insignificant either. This is a repeating op and NOT a game generated MISSION at all. Please contact me by Discord PM if interested.
  6. Joining after So long

    Welcome back! I was a pretty regular guy on the PS2 channels back in the day for ADK. Look forward to talking with you. Like Spooky said, you can find us on Discord in the EFT channel, although recently it has been slow as some have been busy. Gary and I tend to be the usual suspects if anyone is going to be in there, and you can sometimes see us running with a few other people. Look us up, and drop a line in there in the text channel if you knonw you are going to be around at a specific time since in the summer I have more time and we are moer likely to be able to make a connection.
  7. New Wipe!

    I am currently online in our EFT channel. I have done some raids in the new wipe for the first time as of last night with Ajax (my eldest son). Bots are a bit changed so that requires some adjustments and of course in addition to new skill and behaviours some of them also have changed routines. otherwise the changes to SKS and the overall radical increase in recoil are pretty huge. Feel free to contact me in our discord server or here by PM.
  8. The Patch is live. You may have some scattered issues with trying to get into Labs, and there are a few scattered off and on problems with hangs on other maps. This is already being looked at. The 11.5 patch notes final is here: https://forum.escapefromtarkov.com/topic/95384-patch-01152753/ Huge improvement in quality of life for things like Trader filter system, loads of AI changes, loot spawn locations, and freeze/performance work.
  9. Here is the Flea market original FAQ as provided by BSG: https://forum.escapefromtarkov.com/topic/87140-flea-market-faq/ Reactive and self-directing price and any related spawn activity have been suspended after their initial release alongside the flea market due to clear and obvious signs the programs allowed for heavy manipulation of price and availability under the functional design originally released. Some prices (specifically AMMO) were reverted to pre-reactive pricing model price. Others remain where the reactive model left them when it was suspended (you will see some prices are clearly quite a bit higher than they usually are). See the forums and Twitter for more updates.
  10. @bstategames ·1h We are opened up all of LL of traders, all item counts are infinite now, prices lowered to dirt cheap. Till the nearest update! Note that of course the resale value of all items in your stash are now virtually worthless as well however EXCEPT BITCOINS, for which they have yet to correct prices, but that may be an oversight, so if you have one, you should probably sell it right away... unless it is desperately needed for a trade you cannot simply pay money for. By comparison, a Roller is now worth less than 700 rouble, and a chain has resale value of only 129 r). An SA 58 at PK is now available at 10 dollars... Dollars now cost 1 rouble, euros just over that at 1.0499. Nota Bene: it no longer pencils to insure OR repair ANYTHING unless you cannot buy it outright, since insurance and repair prices have NOT been affected, and now cost far (100's of times) more than replacement prices of most items we checked... Because as Ajax pointed out, we saw price variations at unreliable times after the initial down-turn in each of the last two or three major wipes, it may be wise to do all your purchasing now if you have any cash. It may also be wise to play the exchange swings as bitcoins may fall, and the dollar and euro prices may return to close to normal or actually extreme levels. (as a hedge, I have bought 100k each of dollars and euros since I do not know how long until wipe and what fluctuations may occur, and I am playing around with the idea of perhaps taking 5 million of the remaining 6.5 roubles I have and turning that into 5 million dollars - where a return of the regular exchange rate could then net something like a near 500 M roubles going the other way... ). Any other ideas on speculation? (We have already purchased massive quantities of IR scopes, SA58's, containers and armor/helmet/tactec combos...)
  11. The recent Russian Language Q&A session kindly translated by o4zloiroman Some eye openening ideas and changes in there. While not all are definitive yet, some are going to be incoming in 10.5 which has been announced as imminent! https://forum.escapefromtarkov.com/topic/85398-qa-with-nikita-buyanov-from-russian-forum-section/
  12. Wipe Imminent

    Wipe is announced as incoming soon. Because the abbreviated 'what's big in this patch' comes with this comment from TheWay, it appears it may be close to the estimated release date around the end of this Month (Halloween-ish). The wipe is suggested to be a complete wipe except for weapon mastery skills. Link below: https://forum.escapefromtarkov.com/topic/85477-little-update-for-you/
  13. @Bobby, These are ageing parts, but, among other parts that would be available sometime between now and January are: a top tier i5 3rd Ivy Bridge (3rd Gen), associated board, ram and probably something like a GTX660 SOC. While the chipset and CPU are still quite competitive vis a vis capacity to play current and soon to be released heavy 3d gaming titles (including Tarkov) the GTX660 is only adequate and should ideally be replaced with something more modern. I do not know what you have off the top of my headd so I do not know if even that aged gaming card is an improvement or not. Pro'ly we have a PSU and case, etc, however just on general principles, the PSU should be replaced as heavy use and age can cause PSUs to create problems (even though we haven't had any with the current one to date). Monitors are not good to ship if we don't need to, and I do not currently have any keyboard or mouse components I would be willing to ship. So the good news is that the 3rd gen i cores retain a high degree of competitiveness with current Intel architectures, and this is particularly important in gaming where Intel has the jump because of the superior single-core performance they generate for generally poorly multi-threaded game applications. (There are exceptions to this limited multi-threadedness in gaming, but, like the latest Battlefield, they are rare, and Tarkov, is definitely not among those). The other good news is that the chipset is still pretty competitive as well so the mother board is also good. Now for the Bad news: As I suggested, that 660 is not really competitive, the PSU is old-ish for a PSU and and should be replaced for safety, and I don't know off the top of my head how much 'matching' ram we have so that might be a want... Still, with everything half assembled already and just pick plug in and play replacement, you could be playing pretty improved conditions in an hour or so. ... Hey so what are the specs of your current machine? What peripherals can you still use... ~Dim
  14. I NEED YOUR CLIPS!!!

    Hey man, I will try to remember to turn on Shadow play when I think of it. If you happen to be playing with me, remind me will ya?
  15. Raid Night Poll

    Good idea... My vote is in, but I can run most nights. Got ta make some room for new stuff, so this is great since no sense collecting stuff unless I use some stuff up in the process!
