I'm going to be saying this everywhere I go.

I'm very curious to see how Ubi/Massive is going to respond to the real-world application of this. Obviously there's going to be a lot of people that are saying the same thing as you two about cutting the ropes.. but I'm quite sure there's also going to be a very large group of people complaining about the fact that they now can never extract. Stuff like this is always exciting to see how polarizing the experience will actually become.

Wondering how it is going to work. Does one need to be Rogue already in order to cut the rope or can you just be standing there and cut it? Obviously it could work either way but I think it makes more sense to have an Agent already be Rogue in order to cut the rope. Otherwise you are forcing players to perhaps go Rogue by shooting at players who may or may not intend on cutting the rope.

They said that cutting the rope will make you go rogue, so I implied from that you do not have to be rogue to cut it.

It works much better that way in my opinion.

Now the question is....can you start cutting a rope at less than 6 seconds left before the extraction completes and complete the cut?

Guessing the cutting will fail before 6 seconds. Othewise dastardly agents will do it on the last second.

Like @ShootFirstPodcast has said, peeps are gunna gripe. If you could successfully cut at the last second, it'll look like a glitch. Peeps are sick of glitches. The howls would be enormous.

Extractions work that way though. If there's even a second left on the timer to extract, you can start and complete the extraction, which takes just about as long as cutting the rope is slated to.

I would guess that if you start the cut with at least 1 sec it would give you the chance to cut but it would still take the full 6 sec.  If you stopped before finishing (or were killed before finishing) I'm guessing the extraction would immediately.  Be complete since the extraction timer would have expired during the cut attempt.

Since I have done extractions at the last 0.5 second, I think Massive will allow cutters to do it in the last minute as well.

Like really the idea but it is going to cut out another area of finding others to team with.  Having met up and teamed with a number of others where we crossed paths at extraction sites, I suspect this will have a pretty big impact on that with a lot more distrust.  I would imagine this is the aim.

Oh well  :12_slight_smile: .

Way I read the details are that AS SOON AS an Agent presses the key to begin the 6 seconds cutting HE WILL IMMEDIATELY BE ROGUE...AND stuck in a 6 second animation! 

So, yes, just guard your loot and as soon as Rogue goes up near the rope you have a full 6 seconds of HURT to pour down.

I can't see people using this on anything other than unguarded ropes.

Well, two things.

One, you'll need to kill whoever is extracting first most times, so now you're rogue anyway.

Two, security link lasts longer than 6 seconds.

haha oh gawd... the DZ is gonna be a knightmare bwahaha. For the most part I've generally had a pretty easy time in there but now I have to worry about my rope being cut. Usually my worries all go away once I attach it, this should make it more interesting.
