Tarkov is fun and hard just wish there was a way to play it more casual or even pve with friends. i cant spent 24/7 on it and learn it all. STill a wonderful made game though. good luck with the road u take man stay awesome and keep having fun in what u doing.

  • Last wipe I barely hit level 20. This wipe I've stopped playing. Having to do the exact same tasks every wipe is depressively boring and the fact that no new content is being added aside from a few map expansions and some guns I don't even get to use until I grind my way through the trader levels is even more disheartening.

  • Definitely don't feel FORCED or obligated to play tarkov, Pestily, we watch your content for you. I'd personally love to see you play a big span of games, and just have fun and try new things, because burnout is a real thing and it's amazing you've gone for as long as you have. I feel a bit worried, I see your eyes in your past videos and in this one they seem tired, and burned out. Your community won't leave you for leaving tarkov, your channel isn't tarkov, it's Pestily, and we want and love Pestily.

    Daniel AlexanderDaniel AlexanderKun oldin
    • I will also add, I had to quit Tarkov because it's really lackluster, you can't enjoy toying with guns, you HAVE to run the meta, with the most expensive ammo, or you're being a chump and losing money. Nikita yanks everyone's chain so so hard, and it's incredible to me that he has such a strong fanbase, especially after having pushed back update after update. We were supposed to have lighthouse already, and streets of Tarkov coming out hot after, but we only got the Factory/woods expansions which were hugely disappointing. It feels as if we won't get another major update from Nikita for another year now that he's learned he can leech the game for more money, and essentially thrives off banning hackers and making them buy the game over for a ridiculous price, and he couldn't be none the happier. Not to mention the numerous bugs with the game, grenades being literal rocks that you take a gamble with every time, and the textures. The textures are copy pasted poorly throughout the map, having my game on the maximum graphics settings and inspecting textures up close, especially on factory and some other places, they're absolutely awful. You see lots of floating objects, colliding objects, and it overall looks like a game that'd be acceptable in the early STALKER/Metro age. There's just so much incredibly wrong with the game, and absolutely no care from the fat piggy Nikita, and it is sad, because it had potential to be an amazing immersive FPS survival with big aspirations, but got stuck under the rule of a greedy russian wanna-be mob crook.

      Daniel AlexanderDaniel AlexanderKun oldin
  • Played 1 wipe of tarkov, got kappa which is essentially completing the game and I refuse to play another wipe, it’s way too much grind just to do the same thing over and over with the same maps, if only tarkov was a survival game like days but better. The concept of tarkov never makes sense to me, spawn, kill make money survive, spawn in kill make money survive. It’s boring and there’s no point.

  • Gave Tarkov a break this wipe after reaching level 60+ last few wipes and couldn't be more glad, they simply don't push updates fast enough to keep the game from getting stale and the new features they do add seem to make the game worse or break things, while issues that have existed for years are ignored. I will return when the time is right, EFT is one of my favourite games of all time but for now I'm enjoying other games. To anyone who is starting to not enjoy the game, I suggest you give it a break!

  • I like Pestily being a bit more down to Earth about Tarkov because this has been my exact feelings about the game the past wipe or two. I haven’t even played at all this wipe because the game just isn’t fun when it’s all the same after a certain point and if I’m not super geared I’ll die to any player I run into after the first month or two. I’ll jump into a raid every once in a while but with them making positive scav karma changes, then immediately turning around and making it negative and not fun to progress in it at all, I just realized that BSG does not want their player base to enjoy the game. In my heart I feel like they want Tarkov to die so they can work on their next project which won’t end up doing so well, instead of appreciating what they have now and trying to make it a fun game instead of a “hardcore realistic” game.

  • That's so much truth on only 1 video xD This is my third Wipe and i played like 2-3 week's this wipe. It was the most fun week's of my last month's playing games. But once we are all chad just all loose his shine... I really would like tarkov to be more like a grinding game... All runing pure pistols,cheap ammo,cheap and off meta weapons for week's...Then...seeing a rare svd,or a rare as val and feel that rush... Seeing somebody with only one full clip of the best ammo and saying "dear god" this dude it's insane he go to raid with one full mag of bp. And finding the good weapons should be like the clip's of people finding a red card... And finding a red card should be something that probably never happen's xD. They really need to nerf lab's ( my ideal it would be that it's an event with a couple of raid's per day ) and balance the loot ( primarly from Reserve that it's too broken ). wipe we have a long early...and a long mid game... Just make 3 tier of everything and make tier 2 thing's rare's and tier 3 weapons and ammo super rare and dont allow to buy it on flee.

  • Ive said it a million times. If you want TARKOV on a WHOLE NEW LEVEL, make it open world and find a way to keep people in the game LONGER THAN just raids. Possibility of dying and coming back to your body would make this game insane on another level. Vehicles if possible too

Feels stupid that I work my ass to get almost to the same rank as streamers that play 24/7 and do 5 minute raids and kill everyone, and then they're like "well let's delete it all". Either they need to slow down "gamers" and "streamers" or make seasons like in Diablo.
