Both aren't p2w. But I don't like those boosters. For me reason to buy EoD was Season pass + Arena.

This isn't DLC, its basically another game. DLCs will be integrated into regular Tarkov PvPvE mode.

IMO, PvE thing would be available for 20-35$ in the future, current price tag is a joke. As an EoD player, would buy upgrade for 20$ easily.
You pay extra and gain a few advantages over players with the standard version, that is pay to win to me.

Anyway, the price for this version is just insane. This would cost me $286 cad to upgrade from the standard version, not including taxes. What are they smoking at BSG? I want some.

Not sure how it helps with winning. Still unfair advantage.

Most likely same stuff they did in the past. 100+ edition was only way to guarantee access to alpha for year(?). Some would pay extra for this edition and few months after there will be cheaper edition with less boosters and PvE.

You should keep in mind that this mode cost more to maintain and cutting playerbase into two entities.

PvE will be available as 6 months trial for EoD holders.

1) Upgrade from EoD is 50% cheaper, EoD will get few new features.
2) EoD wouldn't get PvE until release, but after release it would be free of charge
3) There would be standalone upgrade with early access to PvE mode in near future, -70% off for EoD

Let's say, its waaay better than I thought.
 
What BSG did was scummy, but a large portion of the community have also shown their true colors, they are total ****ing morons.

I seen so many posts about how people are starting to cheat just to target people who bought this edition, or how they spent $150 five years ago, got a few thousand hours in and still think they didn't get their moneys worth. They're also fine with paying for faster progression with EOD, but now those same advantages are a problem with this new edition, absolute hypocrites. My personal favorites are the disgruntled people who think they should keep playing the game and take up server space to "get back" at BSG. Yeah, they definitely don't want people playing their game. You got em' there boys!

Then theirs all the content creators circling this situation like vultures, some EFT content creators knew this was coming but still acted surprised when reading the patch notes for their video. Then you got dummies like Asmongold giving his 2c instead of doing his normal reaction content. Guys like this don't care about EFT or the community, they are just fanning the flames to farm views.

This whole situation is just completely bonkers from both sides.

It's more like 50 dollars right now. I feel like the PvE is just a blanket from what PVPVEis. Either if it match with PVP servers. It's not the same feeling.
 
Soooo... There is completely free server emulator with coop. And you can mod it from vanilla eft-like to some crazy levels with bots looting, questing, ratting and jumping at you. Test on my two local machines - work like a charm so far

Playing unofficial co-op with my friend ~ for 10-20h.

  • co-op works excellent. 2 minutes between stash and raid, 0 desynch, 0 bugs so far
  • progress is fully tunable. Exp rates, prices, FIR, flea settings, hideout, rules for containers and their sizes. Basically, everything is customizable.
  • gameplay is fully tunable. Speed, recoil, UI, player stats, etc.
  • Ai. Aggressive, campy, retreating presets. Bots properly jumping, taking cover behind trees and other objects, healing, looting, roaming map and doing their own quests.They have realistic vision and hearing, realistic aim. Best AI I ever saw in videogames.
  • visuals overhaul, fully tunable

You need any edition of the game, friends don't need any if you give them access to install file. Installation isn't brain-dead easy, but could be done in few hours .

are you talking bout SPT?
 
I gave the SPT mod a try since I plan on buying PVE whenever they make it available for everyone. I really like how you can wipe it whenever you want, and it’s a great way to learn the game. Right now I’m using it to figure out how to get to level 15 asap for the next pvp wipe. No other mods installed.

The big down side is it takes away the magic of Tarkov, the game just does not feel as rewarding or intense.

I also learned to not try and ego challenge ai, if you stay in one spot for more than like 2 seconds then they will most likely kill you with a shot in the head or thorax.

You should try SAIN + questing and looting bots, at least. It would be closer to PvP experience. PvE is brain dead now.
Yeah I checked out a bunch of mods, not sure If I want to bother installing them since I don’t know if i’ll stick with SPT/PVE. The way I see it, no matter how many mods I install I’m still fighting ai, I’ll just learn their habits over time.

With PVP you never know what you’re going to get, lol. It could be a noob, average joe, ultra sweat or cheater.

Those are mostly realistic and would surprise you for few hundreds hours.

Some SAIN bots would camp in blind spots, some are more likely to evade contact, some aggressive, some defensive. Only missing playertype is snipers, at least I didnt meet those.

One thing that is kind of concerning about SPT is that apparently BSG is not a fan of it. I think it’s only a matter of time before they try shut it down, I was thinking that they’d make a push for this when they release PVE for everyone this summer.

I don’t want to end up with a ban for using it, I was thinking of even emailing them asking about their stance.

They would say that its against TOS. Yet, Klean has permission to make SPT videos from Nikita.

Would not recommend to use SPT and BSG launchers simultaneously, but they dont really care for SPT now.


P.s Arena+EFT will be merged tomorrow

The merge is nice. You dont have to scav for money now. It can just be won in Arena; wipe is pushed to Aug, I am pretty happy in investing to level 2 bitcoin because it's least 700k in profit and I just buy about 7 moon shines for a scav case. I think my goal this wipe is just to get max traders.
