On this episode Ronal and MTBtrigger dig into their most recent advice from Episode 60 - how to get over exploration fear.  They put this into practice on the Woods map… one that they both have admittedly avoided (outside of tasks).

This one is filled with raid stories on Woods and some realizations about the old version of Woods that the hosts weren’t even aware they held until they began talking about ‘old woods’

They wrap the episode up with their best tips for the woods map

All this and more in the episode!  Goodluck with your woods raids!

In this episode MTBtrigger and Ronal discuss a concept that seems to be a barrier to progression after getting over gear fear - they define it as Exploration Fear.

After spending a few weeks grinding out the 'end game' tasks and working on learning customs, the pair talk about how tackled learning new parts of the map and what was creating problems.  MTB points towards only using familiar routes and this led to a sort of comfort on maps like customs where having a safe play meant doing that every time he was on the map.

The concept of exploration fear also resonated with Ronal and he speaks to how it prevented him from really learning interchange until he decided to just run to the middle of the mall and figure it out.

All this and more in the episode!

On this week’s episode Ronal and MTBtrigger go through the recent Reddit post from Nikita about the recent updates to Tarkov as well as what we can expect in the near future ror the 12.10 release.

Lag/Desync and backend improvements, 40k cheaters banned, crafting changes, ergonomic changes, and many more ‘minor changes’ are discussed.

Ronal shares his recent Customs PMC success story.

Also discussed is the language used by Nikita surrounding the Dynamic Events and *First* Storyline Quest.  While these seem like relatively common gaming phrases they could be very telling of what is coming soon to Escape From Tarkov.

Lastly, the topic many players discuss, but we rarely hear from the devs regarding - Scav Karma - was also mentioned.

All this and more inside the episode.  What are you most excited about?

LEDX.  To some a point of frustration, to others a source of fun, and this week the LEDX is the cause of much conversation.  A craft was added to the hideout to make a LEDX thus removing the (potential) need to find one in raid for the Therapist task which results in a Thicc Item Case reward.

MTBtrigger and Ronal break down the different view points on this particular addition to the game as well as some of the other ‘high-tier’ additions to the game, including the graphics card craft that was added during the last wipe.

Rewards, recognition, achievement, feat of strength… regardless of what you call it, there are tasks, kills, and items that conjure these words and in some cases you get something to show for it.  Some just allow you to progress faster than other players.   Ultimately, there is a ‘hard’ way to do things and BSG adding additional paths to achieve them doesn’t take anything away from players that complete the hard method.

Would an achievement tracker, visible to others perhaps, add something to Tarkov that it is currently missing?

All this and more inside the episode.

On this episode Ronal and MTBtrigger talk about their strategy for planning out which map they are going to attack, which quests to tackle, and how their planning has evolved.  

Interestingly, MTB has changed his strategy entirely after talking about his ‘notepad’ strategy last week.  

Both Ronal and MTB remain focused on hideout progression, but had a number of raids together during the second week of the wipe and they break down a few of the PVP encounters. 

All this and more inside the episode.

Woods expansion AND a fresh wipe.  So much to cover.

Your hosts, Ronal and MTBtrigger, talk about how this wipe feels ‘different’ and why that might be.

They also go over the strategies they are using to combat these differences and talk about what has helped them so far in this new wipe.

Additionally, they talk about many tips throughout the episode - some planned, some not - that are focused on the early-wipe PMC runs.  How to manage your stash until you unlock the flea market?  What types of items should I hold on to?  Are there items or cases I should spend my currency on?

Answers to all ot these and more in the episode!
