Current State of TM PS3 Online
02/04/15 at 01:20:36
 
Been a long time since I played TM and been on here. It popped up in my head the other day. Are they still running the servers for this game? If so how many people still play this game? I last played in the summer of 2013 and back then the game still had issues with connectivity and balancing. Yet there was still a decent enough community of players to get a game going (Although there were only like 4-7 rooms and not much variety).

Are there still issues with balance and cheap players (I wouldn't expect this game to get patched but I would think that maybe with a small community the cheap players would have simply stopped playing)?

Also is there still the connectivity issues? Have they smoothed it out or has the fact that there are a lot less players worked out the connectivity. The last time I played the connectivity was shit.

Just checking in on the general state of the game. Hoping I can play a few games in the coming weeks just for old times sake. Still love this game but the game got killed by the online not functioning and lack of balancing patches.

The server is still up and people still play the game. The room joining problem is still there. If you make a room and people are not coming in, that's part of the reason. As for cheap players, there's now a hacker name Marik_999 who has infinite weapons and rapid fire. You can see him spamming Roadboat's special here:



Remote bombs are broken. Back then you were able to take them off of you by ramming a wall, but that was accidentally removed when they released the last patch in October 2012. Now you can't take them off and will be forced to take 50 damage if you didn't shield it at the right time.

The game sometimes freezes and requires you to turn off the PS3. I can connect to the server just fine. I get disconnected sometimes though.

I often refer to the honeymoon period because that was truly some of the best gaming I had in awhile. After the exploits came out the fun switched to highly competitive, then to ridiculous unfair. Which matters because the ever present skill percentage is always attached to your name. Of course I would sometimes see a DW with 20% skill owning the room, but still. I never use crutch vehicles either to get my percentage back up at the end of the day. The game was feeling more like a job than fun. I was pretty good at my height, but some of those guys that use vehicles like Darkside with 99.99% were also very good.

Gfg Luis. All of those Roadboat specials was funny for a second, but to see someone can cheat like that is extremely unfortunate, and disappointing. Reminds me of when I started seeing people in socom with 50caliber sniper rifle-machine guns. It devalues the crap out of the game just about making it pointless.

Looks like the hacker has lost interest and is now gone for now. He hasn't been online for 12 days.
