    Chris Hecker recently posted a masterclass video showcasing some high level play if anyone is interested. There's some nice gameplay tips in it, along with some very interesting insight into the design of the game.

    Also I'm down to play for the next hour or so if anyone is interested.

    Kate, please show me how to properly play this game this year. I tried it a couple years ago at PAX and couldn't get anywhere at all.

    i finally found my beta account stuff and am reinstalling this. I still have no real idea how to play

  • LanglyLangly Registered User regular
    ok, I am confused on sniper play. I have dudes highlighted on my map, but in the bug planting mission, only the ambassador matters, right? There are double agents in the map, but they're not relevant, and can't be the spy, right?

  • AbracadanielAbracadaniel Registered User regular
    Depending on the map the spy has several tasks to perform, including communicating with the true double agent, planting a bug on the ambassador, doing the microfilm thing, etc.

  • TheySlashThemTheySlashThem Registered User regular
    this game is so fucking hard

    part of me wishes the spy controlled more like an RTS? like, you could tell it to go to this spot, and do this thing, and it would use the actual AI pathing to do it

    just trying to walk around the right way is so fucking stressful

  • World as MythWorld as Myth a breezy way to annoy serious people Registered User regular
    spy is tough but you get the hang of it fast. a super pro-tip is to use a gamepad for spy and mouse/keyboard for sniper, but it gets sorta tiresome

    Xbox controller works awesome as Spy, rocked that shit vs @mully last night

    Also she didn't think I'd be dumb enough to be Spy as the redheaded guy my first attempt

    She thought wrong

    I just got a couple games in and failed as sniper but then won as spy (just by not being shot though...), and then won as the sniper. Feeling a little more in control now. got to go pick up a pizza though, in case the dude I played with is a member here. (mortor something something?)

  • Grey GhostGrey Ghost Registered User regular
    Is it normal that it's been searching for a lobby for like 10 minutes now

    No spying tonight

  • rhylithrhylith Death Rabbits HoustonRegistered User regular
    Just played with someone.

    Wow it is so much less obvious who is the spy when you're playing this for reals.

    Finally got this, forgot to check my opponent's win record before going into my first game.

    who'd you play against?

    who'd you play against?

    I'm having some trouble remembering the name, and they logged out before I could get a proper look at their total match wins.

    Probably somebody with a decent number of games under their belt, though, considering how they sussed me out within a minute each time I played Spy.
