The pair talk about their expectations for the Triple-A MMO launch from Amazon, as well as  the significant number of reports that came in about server stability, queue times for getting to play, and server capacity.

Were you able to play on launch?  What about the following weekend?

What has been your experience since launch?

Why we’re excited for New World | Episode 01 in our yet to be titled New World Podcast

Why we’re excited for New World | Episode 01 in our yet to be titled New World Podcast

September 27, 2021

MTBtrigger and Ronal are starting a New World Podcast!

It has been a while since the podcasting pair has played a new game the both wanted to dig in to.  The last time it happened was Escape From Tarkov, but the new MMO, New World, is just around the corner that has MTB and Ronal excited to dig in.

On this episode, MTB and Ronal talk about the various systems they experienced during the two betas they played in.  While only experiencing the early game, in both of their cases it led to them wanting more and being excited for the games release.

The episode wraps with a discussion, from each of their viewpoints, about the most exciting features of New World and the opportunities and things they’d like to see developed in the future.

 

All this and more in the episode!

Dynamic Loot & Dynamic Questing… Daily Tasks!?! | Why Tarkov’s In-Game Systems Lead to Great Gameplay and Memories | Exfil Episode 76 (An Escape From Tarkov Podcast)

Dynamic Loot & Dynamic Questing… Daily Tasks!?! | Why Tarkov’s In-Game Systems Lead to Great Gameplay and Memories | Exfil Episode 76 (An Escape From Tarkov Podcast)

September 20, 2021

Exfil is an Escape From Tarkov Podcast

On this episode, MTBtrigger and Ronal dive into the recent podcasts Nikita has been featured on.  Nikita recently gave significant insight regarding the future and near future changes coming to Tarkov.  Make sure to visit a friend of the show’s website to get the latest Tarkov news:

https://www.tarkovnews.com/blog

https://www.tarkovnews.com/blog/nikita-talks-tarkov-with-bsg-emissaries

Some of these changes are already starting to roll out in game - dynamic loot, for example.  After explaining how dynamic loot works, MTB and Ronal talk about the various ways dynamic loot could affect the game in the short and long term and the balancing challenges Battlestate might face as a result.  

Another subtle mention by Nikita is the future addition of Dynamic Daily Quests.  This may sound or seem, on the surface, like a typical addition to any MMO or MMO-like game, but the inclusion of the word Dynamic caused MTB to think about the opportunities BSG has to make this system unique.  Quests could be given dynamically based on playstyle, current active quests, level, etc.  If done correctly, the daily quests could also incentivize players to try new styles, explore new areas, or play on maps they don’t consider playing on currently.

Lastly, during the final impromptu raid story, MTBtrigger and Ronal talk about how all of the various systems in Escape from Tarkov and their detail and depth lead to incredible “Raid Stories” and memories being associated with this game.  The final conversation may cause you to remember some raids you’d otherwise forget… maybe you want to forget, but MTB and Ronal won’t let you.

All this and more in the episode!

Night Vision + Questing - The Ultimate Tarkov Success Formula? | Raid Stories From Shoreline Event | Exfil Episode 75 (An Escape From Tarkov Podcast)

September 8, 2021

Exfil is an Escape From Tarkov Podcast

In this episode, MTBtrigger and Ronal talk about targeting a level or objective and the strategy and mindset they use to reach their goals.  

This conversation leads to an in-depth discussion on when the pair queues in to raids and what types of decisions are made before loading into a raid - what is the weather, what time will I be loading into the map, should I run a scav raid to optimize when I load in, and many more.

Ronal stunned MTBTrigger with his progress over the last week.  Specifically his progress during night raids.  The combination of the Shoreline event - Reshala and Sanitar both active on 100% of Shoreline raids and in the same area - and night vision questing led to a deep dive on how to utilize night vision and shines a light (haha) on a “game mode” that MTBtrigger only utilizes for tasks that require it.

How often do you run night raids while questing?

Are there more risks when running night raids or is the relatively lower scav danger worth it?

All this and more in the episode!

Scav Karma Breakdown | How Scav Karma Works - How to Gain Reputation With Fence | Is the Karma System Complete? | Exfil Episode 74 (An Escape From Tarkov Podcast)

August 12, 2021

Exfil is an Escape From Tarkov Podcast

In this episode, MTBtrigger and Ronal take a dive deep into Scav Karma.

After opening the show by talking about their current favorite weapons - anything found on a scav - the pair dive into the new-this-wipe system, Scav Karma.  

While there appear to be some shortcomings in the implementation, namely the flagging system for a hostile player scav and the perceived lack of danger while scaving in now, the pair has an optimistic view on what the system could become.

Is the Scav Karma system complete?

Should it be modified to keep the hardcore feeling in raids, regardless of playing as a PMC or Scav?

All this and more in the episode!

Flea Market Deep Dive | History of the Flea Market and Hideout | Is Progression Better Now? | How Much RNG is Too Much? | Exfil Episode 73 (An Escape From Tarkov Podcast)

July 26, 2021

Exfil is an Escape From Tarkov Podcast

The deep dive you all thought was coming last week.  Flea Market and the new level 20 requirement.

You may be surprised to hear the opinions of MTBtrigger and Ronal on this episode.  They cover everything from the entire history of the Flea Market to how the (possibly unintended) changes to progression are being affected by the RNG in Tarkov.

What problem is Battlestate trying to fix with this change?

Does the change help high or low playtime players more?

Many suggestions and thoughts to how the system could be modified or improved are given, but the episode is rounded out by Ronal and MTB’s opinions on systems that other games use to solve the perceived problems BSG is tackling.

All this and more in the episode!

July 12, 2021

Exfil is an Escape From Tarkov Podcast

Patch 12.11 is here!  MTBtrigger and Ronal break down everything they’ve seen so far in the patch and what you can expect to see when you dive into some raids.

MTB talks about his first encounter with the new raid boss on Factory - Tagilla, as well as the new expansion and additional areas that were added to the Factory map.

The hosts talk about their feelings regarding the flea market now requiring a player to reach level 20 on their PMC to access it and what that could mean for the early, mid, and end of wipe scenarios.

Lastly, Ronal and MTB share their tips for starting out this wipe with a focus on surviving more, shaking the rust off, and getting the jump on enemy PMCs in pvp.

All this and more in the episode!

Exfil is an Escape From Tarkov Podcast

On this episode MTBtrigger and Ronal answer the question posed at the end of episode 71: "What do we want to see in the game for Beta to be officially over?" 

The hosts get into a great conversation about the Flea Market, Bots, Achievements, Open World Concepts, and Persistent vs Non-Persistent PMC's. 

To wrap the episode up, MTB talks about an exciting new project where he is documenting each task in Tarkov, one at a time… so we named it… One Task at a Time. 

Look for a guide series in the future to show off many different strategies for completing each task. Be sure to check in at twitch.tv/mtbtrigger and catch it live.

Exfil is an Escape From Tarkov Podcast

 

On this episode MTBtrigger and Ronal talk about what it means to be in beta.  They discuss what parts of the game are ‘release ready’ and which parts they believe still need some work.

Additionally, the pair discuss what it could look like to add gating mechanics into the game, namely level bracketing to pair similarly leveled (not skill based) characters in maps together.

Do you think this would work?

What do you think Tarkov needs to finish or add to the game to be 1.0 release ready?

Game Design Matters | Could Ranked or Arena Work? | If PvE Was Added Would You Care? | Exfil Episode 69 (An Escape From Tarkov Podcast)

April 26, 2021

Exfil is a weekly Escape From Tarkov Podcast

 

On this episode MTBtrigger and Ronal take a deep dive into a random thought regarding game design and its effect on how long, or if, you play.

It started with a thought during hideout keeping by MTBtrigger regarding his goals being met and not having many reasons right now to log in.  He goes on to explain that in a seasonal model this can happen, and in many other games it is expected.

Ronal adds in his perspective but also brings the conversation back to game design and ways Battlestate could further design the game or add to it to combat this or even give large segments of players other things to do, even if it means less rewards and less risk.

All this and more in the episode!
