Extend buy time on the pub?

Postby Oreo » Oct 10th, 2005 at 12:50 pm

I know you guys have your set reasons for things, like a lower buy time to prevent nade spaming and such but this is starting to make me angry! Either the freeze time needs to be extended a few seconds (which in essence will increase the buytime, because the buytime is added on to the freeze time), or the buytime needs to be increased to 20-30 seconds. Nade spaming isn't an issue on the server, probably because of the freeze time, but there are only 1 or 2 maps you can even do it on. A 20 second or 25 second buy time would still made it hard to do, if not impossible still, plus admins will be there to prevent such problems.

Reason: so many times I will be typing to somebody or talking to somebody then I go to buy and it's 2:14 and I can't buy a weapon. It's ridiculous how it's only 16 seconds into the round and I can't buy anything. Since the freeze time is so short, the buytime is even less than in CAL. Also, if you tab out to check on somtehing and then tab back into the game the same problem happens, 2:10, 2:13, 2:05, can't buy. I know it seems like a rant, but I'm just unsure of the reasoning behind it other than preventing nade spam. 20-25 seconds would help me out, help other people out, and still be nade spam unfriendly. What do you think?

Get buy scripts. I use them and buy in less than a second.

Keyser, you're an idiot. Read his reasons. They have nothing to do with buying speed. Do you really think that Oreo can't buy within 20 seconds or w/e buy time + freeze time is? :roll: Also, he has buy scripts.

I don't really think this is much of a problem to be honest. Does anyone else find that our buy time/freeze time are too short? Unless quite a few people have problems with them, I don't see them changing.

I too feel they should be extended buy 10-15 seconds or so. The time it effects me is when im typng or talking to other people, buying guns for others. LIke oreo mentioned, tabbing away even if it seems just for a second you come back and u miss the buy time. Also sucks when u take off runnign then realize u didnt buy ammo or a KIT and u hurry back to buy it and u miss the buytime. NOT EVERYONE uses scripts.

Its not a super big deal however, this only happens to me once every 30+ rounds so if It's not changed big deal. If it is - great.

I would like to see it extended too. If I need to take care of admin business, I sometimes come back and missed my chance to buy even though I was pretty quick about it. And Suck. made me lol.

main problem i have with the buytime is that by the time im loaded and into the level, 15 seconds is long gone.

See no reason not to extend it. Even 30 seconds should not be a problem.

i have the same problem with leo. When the map changes sometimes i'll join the team after 15secs into the round and cant buy a thing, no defuse kit is the main problem. Also you have no time to buy guns for other people and yourself. please change it
Servers gone and all of a sudden people have opinions of K2, weird

I haven't played CS in forever, but isn't there buy scripts that everyone uses?

that happened to me a few times. i don't know why, i have a decent computer, and a decent connection, but i always seem to load last on a map. and sometimes i get pwnted by the timer.

and sometimes when i die i run off to take a leak or get something drink. and when i get back i see people just starting to run off from spawn and i try buy something and the game is like cry more noob! and im like orz ;_;

Yea cat, it's not about buying slow. It's just the buy time being extremely small. Causing some problems when you're busy for just a few extra seconds typing, tabbed out, or quickly getting a drink. 25-30 seconds would completely eliminate 99% of these issues. I wouldn't bring it up if it only happened once in a blue moon, it's happening to me every map and sometimes 3-4 times a map.
