#78 Krunker.io (web FPS) in Other Games

The FFA tournament has been moved to Saturday, May 25th at 7:30 PM EST to accommodate more schedules. To access the tournament registration form and read more information, visit the tf.tv Krunker Discord server. Players from all regions are welcome to participate, but NA players will be given priority.

Prizes for this first tournament are rather minimal; first place gets a choice of two games from my Steam key list, while second place gets to choose one game. The main purpose of the tournament is to give people an opportunity to play the game in a semi-competitive setting.

If you haven't tried out the game yet and are in the mood to farm some kids for $0, check it out at https://krunker.io/.

Edit: Tournament rules and format can be found at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1QuSi_ISF9cT8xWG5TluLPjiuSjVFpKuXUtNnkz1AsW8/edit?usp=sharing. The whole thing should wrap up before 8:30 PM EST on Saturday.

daybraeki have just discovered that there are nukes on 25 ks.

THIS GAME IS FUCKING SICK
minicircleA few more things to note:
- If you get a 25 kill streak, you gain access to a nuke (triggered by pressing "1" on your keyboard). This triggers a 10-second timer, then eliminates all enemies who are alive.

But yes, this game is very sick. The tf.tv clan is growing quite a bit too; we might make it on the leaderboards within the month.

Yes, they were trying to deploy the 1.2.6 update but it seems to have disrupted server functionality. They are currently working on it. For more updates, you can join the official Krunker Discord server at https://discord.gg/2hhCVc9. Or join the tf.tv Krunker server at https://discord.gg/Ysc99S2 :)

ivan_use utilities for custom cross

To elaborate on this, if you are playing in your browser, you can install Tampermonkey, then install Krunker.io Utilities (made by the creator of the official client, I believe)

If you are playing by using the client, the Utilities options are built in. In both cases, there will be a "Utilities" button under the Krunker logo in the main menu. I play with Display set to Custom, Style set to Filled Circle, Always Show active, Color set to green, and Length and Thickness both set to 2.

Both browser and client versions of Utilities also give you the option to set a custom scope image as well as the option to disable black boxes (the black area around the scope when scoping in with the sniper rifle). This can give you a potential advantage due to increased visibility while scoped in. Because this is supported by the official client, it seems that this is allowed, which is surprising to me. To test these options, I created a transparent PNG on my computer using GIMP, then uploaded it to Imgur. I then copied the image URL and pasted it in the Scope Image box. The result with black boxes off is no obstruction of vision while scoped in as Hunter. Use these options while you can, I guess. Based on Twitch streams, I know that at least a few others are doing something like this.

Using Utilities to activate Unlimited FPS is only an option on the client.

bsiani had a lot of fun with this game a while ago but it seemed like there were a lot of cheaters, has anything been done to address it?

The dev actually released a patch on Thursday with anti-cheat measures, and I noticed a conspicuous absence of hackers compared to when I first started playing. However, due to the browser-based nature of the game, I imagine hackers will be able to circumvent those measures pretty quickly, unfortunately. If you want to ensure that your server has no cheaters, you can host a private match and give the link only to trusted players. I've had fun playing small FFA matches with friends.

PootisJrIf this game had CPMA movement it'd be the best fps. I like this game. Would recommend.

I think the fact that you can combine sliding (crouching while falling from a jump) with bhopping to increase your momentum helps make movement fun in this game, but I do find myself missing the ability to airstrafe.

DreamboatDetective feels OP though, was rolling on it

Detective is definitely strong. This is partly due to a high movement speed and partly because the revolver does 63 bodyshot damage (players with sniper rifles only have 60 HP).

A few more things to note:
- If you get a 25 kill streak, you gain access to a nuke (triggered by pressing "1" on your keyboard). This triggers a 10-second timer, then eliminates all enemies who are alive.
- Limb shots do less damage, according to the wiki.
- If you want skins, I wouldn't recommend doing the Starter or Elite Spins. Unlike the Heroic Spin, these other spins don't have a chance at giving you a Relic weapon skin.
- Downloading the client is extremely recommended. This lets you configure a custom crosshair and uncap your framerate so that you aren't locked to 60 FPS.
- By toggling "Challenge Mode" in the top-left corner of the menu before entering a match, you can earn 150% KR per match at the cost of your maximum health being halved. Additionally, health regeneration is disabled. This is probably the mode you want to play on consistently after you get used to the game.

#1 Krunker.io (web FPS) in Other Games

Found out about this game after watching a streamer play it in between matches. It's a multiplayer FPS that runs in the browser and apparently has been out for a while. As TV Tropes describes it:

TV TropesIt is currently a notable mix of gameplay styles and influences: the main default map, burg, is a a remake (or demake?) of the iconic De_Dust from Counter-Strike 1.6; the fast-paced movement approaches that of arena shooters like Quake and Unreal Tournament; the class system resembles early Team Fortress 2, while the Regenerating Health and ADS-focused weapon physics remind most people of Call of Duty.

The game is free (there are banner ads in the menu), and you can play it as a guest at https://krunker.io/ without making an account. It's fun IMO, but friends have noted that it's also pretty easy. Head hitboxes in particular seem large.

Note: if the game runs slowly for you, make sure you have hardware acceleration enabled for your browser (or download the client). Directions: https://www.lifewire.com/hardware-acceleration-in-chrome-4125122

edit2: Clan tag is tftv if you want to join. You need to be level 10+ to join a clan.

#14 What would you like to see in a "mix" website? in TF2 General Discussion
TamirWasn't the FreakPugs system just like PugChamp? It's basically what I'm trying to avoid in order to make the competitive scene more welcoming to new players.

Yeah, frkshw and I literally copy-pasted the source code for PugChamp from GitHub and threw it up on a free Heroku instance lol. No programming knowledge required; shout-out to HANK for providing solid TF2 servers. Our goal was to make a place for UGC and low open players to pug since there was almost no way many of them would get picked on PugChamp. People seemed to really enjoy it overall, but it turns out that tsc did not like what we did (which was understandable), so he added an explicit "copyright notice" in July 2017 to restrict people from making clones: https://github.com/fwdcp/pugchamp-legacy/commit/2298c51d70c35abf71e5fe8a31979e0d834f378e

Brief history lesson aside, making a TF2 pug/mix site is very difficult when you realize that the relatively small size of the competitive scene means that you have to seriously consider the tradeoff between getting pugs running "quickly" and keeping pugs fun and evenly matched. People don't want to wait forever to play a pug, but they also don't want to finally get picked for a pug only to get rolled 5-0 in 15 minutes.

In my opinion, the "ideal" mix site would keep 4 skill ratings for each player (corresponding to skill on scout, soldier, demo, and medic) and disallow switching classes with teammates through plugins. Creating a good team balancing algorithm that takes these ratings into account is challenging if you are set on restricting the pool to 12 players for each pug, and it becomes even more challenging if you decide to implement a system where medics can choose a particular player to play with. You can simplify things by keeping only 1 rating per player, but the underlying issue remains.

In general, any mix system will produce lower quality pugs than a captain draft system due to the fact that it is very hard to establish accurate skill ratings for all players in the pool. Therefore, it's better to have trusted captains make the teams, but if you are targeting your site towards people in "low divs," they probably won't know people very well and will just pick their friends even if this would make the pug noticeably imbalanced.

I'm not trying to discourage you from working on this project, but I wanted to make sure you understand what you're getting into. Setting up a mix site worth using will take a lot of effort, and much of it may go unappreciated unless you knock it out of the ballpark from the get-go. Best of luck.

#29 PugChamp-Helper in Projects

If your ESEA division displayed by PugChamp-Helper is incorrect, please fill out this very short form (asks for ESEA profile URL and Steam ID) to request an update for your division data: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSe-zoEpMKVywsR19zqDCt5NROa5EinnamDRVGLWuAWCNZfv6A/viewform.

---

Some users may have incorrect ESEA divisions displayed. This is because the initial data were collected at the beginning of the month. Players may have changed rosters since then in preparation for Season 30. Additionally, there is a bug with ESEA's search that blocks data from being retrieved for certain users.

Example of the bug:
b4nny's Steam ID is 76561197970669109. This converts to [U:1:10403381]. We can search for the corresponding ESEA profile with this link: https://play.esea.net/index.php?s=search&query=%5BU%3A1%3A10403381%5D. Here, the search is working correctly, as we receive one ESEA profile result.

In contrast, tojo's Steam ID is 76561198045772168, which converts to [U:1:85506440]. The ESEA query URL for this ID is https://play.esea.net/index.php?s=search&query=%5BU%3A1%3A85506440%5D. Note that this does not return any results, indicating that ESEA user search by Steam ID is bugged, and tojo will be displayed as a "NERD" by default with the extension active.

EDIT for clarification: Some people have been filling out the form when their divisions are already correct. Do not fill out the form if your division is already displayed correctly. If you are not currently playing on a team, the division used is the last division you played a match in according to ESEA. After your division has been corrected (check https://github.com/minicircle/esea_tf2_data/commits/master for correction history), restart your browser and your division should be fixed.

#26 PugChamp-Helper in Projects

Nice work, kodeeey. It's very cool that the extension shows how many people are added up in a selected region without the user having to open up a PugChamp tab to check. I'm looking forward to seeing what other ideas you and the community come up with.

Off the top of my head, I can think of a few possibilities for features like custom sounds/page backgrounds, cleaner-looking pie charts/tables, an option to auto-embed linked images in chat (note: potentially dangerous), or an option to hide messages by default from certain users (sort of like how Discord lets you click to reveal/hide messages from users that you have blocked). The effort to implement those features may not be worth it, however, given their minor impact.

#9 Laptop recommendations in Hardware

I bought a Dell XPS 15 (i5-7300HQ, 8 GB RAM, 3840x2160, GTX 1050, 256 GB SSD) for grad school when it was on sale and really like it. The performance for typical tasks is great, and text looks really sharp. I read a lot and also program, so I really value the screen. I wouldn't recommend playing games like TF2 on this laptop, but in my experience the XPS 15 is capable of running TF2 between 40-80 FPS at 1920x1080. If I had my desktop and 144 Hz monitor here with me, I wouldn't really have bothered to try playing scrims on the XPS 15. It's not worth it, and, as you mentioned, it's best to keep your laptop focused on productive applications. Nevertheless, many people have chosen to repaste and/or undervolt their XPS 15s for better gaming performance.

Pros:
- great display
- fingerprint sensor has been surprisingly convenient, especially with 1Password
- good performance
- good battery life
- solid design
- keyboard backlight if you want it (I keep it off)

Cons:
- webcam position is suboptimal (note: I don't think I've ever used the webcam on this laptop)
- GTX 1050 isn't really necessary for standard use

I've heard great things about the MateBook X Pro as well. A Chromebook may be sufficient for your needs, but I personally wouldn't want to use one as my main computer.
