Insurgency

 

Insurgency is a FPS shooter. However, unlike most FPS games, Insurgency adds a flare of realism to the well-known FPS formula. The follow-up game to the Source mod under the same name, Insurgency is highly competitive and unforgivably lethal and manages to strike a balance between one-life gameplay (Rainbow Six) and prolonged action (CS:GO).

 

The Pros:

 

·        Gameplay: If you want to win (or even survive) in Insurgency, you need to be tactical, or you're going to die, A LOT. There’s no minimap, no killcam, no health meter, no hit/kill notification, realistic recoil, etc. Insurgency forces you to check corners, control recoil, to communicate with your teammates, etc. All of this results in some very intense (and sometimes prolonged) firefights.

 

·        Team-work: The game actively promotes teamwork. A team full of experienced FPS players communicating to each through TeamSpeak will almost always destroy the opposing team. Therefore, it is very important to communicate with your fellow teammates whenever you can. Relaying a targets position or laying down suppressing fire for a team member stuck behind cover can, more often than not, tip the match in your favour.

 

·        Content: There are plenty of weapons and maps, tons of game modes. The game has Co-op, were you and a bunch of friends can battle against difficult groups of AI soldiers. The game also has 8 PVP game modes ranging from standard Teamdeath match to modes such as CTF and a Battlefield-like Rush mode.

 

·        Fair gameplay: The game has a great loadout system that revolves around the use of points. As everyone starts with the same points, nobody ever gets an advantage. Plus, most of the guns and gadgets are well balanced.

 

The Cons:

 

·        The game can be frustrating (AI a little too accurate at higher levels. There has been moments when I and my entire team have all been killed by a single RPG immediately after spawning). Also, the one hit kill can be annoying for some.

 

·        Visually, Insurgency isn't anything special, but the detail put into the guns is well done. However, none of the visuals here will stop you from enjoying the game.

 

·        If you are looking for a story, well… there isn’t one. All you need to know is that you’re a guy with a gun and you shoot bad guys for a living. The end.

 

Events:

 

  • Co-op events: Who can survive the longest on survival mode.
  • PVP events: 2 teams of AJSA members can battle it out.

I do appologise for the lateness of my post. I have been busy with a recent move. So on to the topic.

 

I have seen quite a few people interested in this game as well as some good potential for some community events. I am currently at work but when I get home I will create a channel in teamspeak for you guys if there is not one already created. We can also see about some server support for the game as well through vilayer to help support any future events.

 

The only question left is who will lead the events for the game. Seeing as pope is already the leader for BF games we may have to locate a new leader. Let me talk this over with the others and see if we are going to have pope lead this or someone else. If anyone is interested they are more than welcome to speak up and we will take it in to consideration.

Seph i could be possibility be the leader for insurgency because well for me its a new genre of fps and i found it interesting and it the only game i been constantly playing for the past weeks soo im kind MLG good at it lol :) but server side i wont be able to handle it just because i have no money but once available i will be tweaking setting for events and stuff soo you got a pro here  ;) take that as a consideration like you said alright good.

Sorry for the late reply guys, been kinda busy buying Christmas presents :P I would be more then happy to be the game leader for Insurgency. I already have plenty of experience when it comes to running game servers so I think that I could run an Insurgency server quite easily. However, if anyone else believes that they are more qualified/suitable for the position, I would be more then happy to step aside.

Pope if you did not read my last reply on this post i was gonna be applying to be the leader of this game because if you were it on this game i think you will have too many thing to do at the same time but i can ease that if you choose me for the lead i have the reasons a little further ahead!
