Lab was gay when I played because everyone was just running around with a pistol, zero risk, huge potential reward. But I think they added an expensive (?) keycard after that, so probably not an issue anymore.

Somewhat, if you know what you're doing you can still make a lot of bank with a bit of luck and just a pistol in Labs. But I definitely see way more geared players than non-geared players there due to entry cost.

The pussy-ass playerbase has always been my biggest gripe with Tarkov. I can have fun despite knowing the content inside out, if I can just come across geared players at fairly regular intervals and have great firefights. Instead, too often it's 90% level 60 hatchlings.

The primary offender in Labs low gear run is LEDX drop, that thing sells for 800k+ and spawns at basically one place, such a 1 slot item honestly shouldn't even exist. So low gears just rush there hoping to get it. It's a rare-ish spawn but doing some math you can basically fail to get it 6 times and still profit. Really really hope they either make the item more common so the price isn't so high and definitely spread it around the Labs, so these people actually have to roam around and fight off raiders and other players to look for it. In fact, this needs to be done on every map, static spawns just promote hatchling/low gear runs. There should still be high value loot areas of the map, that you would still have to look around and possibly have scavs spawned there from the start so hatchlings would either be stopped or delayed enough for geared players to catch up to them.

All that being said, in Labs I still find a decent amount of geared people. Pistol Labs runners can only really be found at the 1-3 places and then they extract whereas the geared players stay to fight off scavs. The issue is that it devalues other maps, both in terms of XP and money gained. So if you're looking for xp and money, which most people are, Labs is best by far.

Honestly I can't believe they still haven't fixed static high value spawns, considering how EVERYONE has said it's awful. Key runs are another major offender. Dynamic spawns would completely eliminate that problem, you'd need gear to go through a ton of loot spots, it'd be more optimal than a naked guy running somewhere first, for once.

Sounds very promising. Wonder about the secret thing, some people speculate it's Steam Audio. Would be great.

Sounds exciting, especially migration to new engine version and more optimizations

Damn, Steam audio is confirmed later on, though? That's great news.

My one big fear for this game is still the karma system they've talked about. It sounds absolutely, ridiculously, game-killingly horrible. Nikita also believes karma exists in real life, so he thinks it would be realistic for people who PvP a lot to have their guns jam more, etc.

What, like more jams if you shoot more - or just shoot at players more?

My theory is that some super secret research was going on in the Tetralabs, research on TIME TRAVEL. And during that research, something exploded like Chernobyl, and people in Tarkov got affected by it. Now when their body dies, their soul doesn't do what it normally would, but instead the soul and memories move to another timeline, where the body is alive. How else would you explain insurance after death? Prapor and the Doctor Lady are two of the few people who are aware of what's going on, they are time-shifting demons, who move freely in at least 6 dimensions. It's kind of like Dark Souls, where you don't die, but are reborn in last bonfire. In Tarkov, you are reborn in hideout.

ye and karma is in there too

BattleEye confirmed for Tarkov, good shit. I'm glad they finally gave in because their own anticheating solution was definitely not working very well.

Is that the "big news"?

Was hoping for something a little more... impactful, I guess, but that's good. Don't know how much it'll change, but hopefully a little at least.

Yes this is the "big news". It's a welcome improvement either way because their current anticheat was pretty dogshit.

Really want to play Tarkov actually, can't wait for .12. Probably what I'm most hyped for, .12 sounds like the biggest update since I started playing in January 2017... or 2018, can't remember.

God damn labs looks fun this late into a wipe. Also this guy is by far the best Tarkov streamer, skill-wise.
