Nope. I don't see the point in the game mode at present.

 

Collect guns to go out and collect more guns, don't die. It has zero endgame. Yeah I know it isn't "released" yet and to be fair, another reason why I won't pay money for a pretty TDM game.

 

I get more enjoyment from DayZ over EFT. I just wish I could refund it.

The singular mechanic I like in EFT is the Scav mechanic but it needs to be more useful. I think it would be better if the game revolved around building a squad of characters. Equipping them well enough until they can embark on some form of end game mission. Which you could play with AI as your squad or invite your friends. This last stage would be one life, perma-death so all those scav runs and loot hauls would actually go towards an end goal, rather than filling up inventory space for no reason other than kleptomania.

I used to be in a massive gaming community called The Art of Warfare

I was in the Escape From Tarkov division up until December last year. In fact if you played during the evenings you probably saw me going about with the TAW tag in front of my name.

Quit because it was too invasive to my real life with mandatory meetings, and daily playing and stuff... Anyway.

 

Last I heard they were gonna eventually link up all the maps to create one large map with a free roam style of play? Something like that at least.

I agree with Duff on the TDM style of gameplay... But then again, we used to do 5 man squads on the Factory map a lot. So it was basically like playing against AI...

If they do that then I think I might return to EFT but to me, it's an even more waste of time than gaming is in general. Obtaining pixel guns don't really do it for me, I prefer advancment like crafting in games where resources and items allow you to further your abilites in game. After all, a gun does one thing and one thing well, shoot projectiles. I need more from my game than that.

 

I've actually started to enjoy PUBG for the first time in a long while. Even though like EFT I would prefer some different game modes eventually, the recent updates have really helped player spacing and I now rarely get lag when a contact is made over before when it was always happening, making it unplayable.

 

Another game I am looking forward to is SCUM, check it out.

Tried it but I felt the same. As for DayZ well.. The lack of consistent updates kind of killed it for me. One update a year is a f*cking joke for an EA game. 

 

I play Exile nowadays and the mod when I'm not on flight sims. Loads of game modes to choose from.

It's alright mechanics are pretty good. Weapon customisation is good.

Spawns are preset, so if your an experience player you'll know where to look out for at the start of the round which takes a lot of the fun away.

 

Enjoyed it so much I bought the Edge of Darkness edition.

 

True with what @Duff said though not much point other than collect & sell guns.

Not much to do either when you max the traders out.

 

I guess only thing left to do is PVP end game at this point of it's development.

 

Though you do get a free mini Tetris game with it :)

The above is so true lol

 

True for the preset spawns, even the scavs spawn in the same place...

 

I have Edge of Darkness as well. The new starting bundle kinda fills the stash though so its an immediate Tetris game lol.

If you haven't been back to EFT recently I'd sugest you do. The new patch 0.8 adds lots more gear and more guns with an insane new map, Interchange. 
No scavs in it yet but the PVP is just pant filling. I've been gaming a very long while (ZX Spectrum) and if you're a gun head then Escape from Tarkov is the single best gunplay FPS ever invented.
For me the greatest game ever made.

Have they added anything that ressembles a goal other than filling your inventory with pixel pewpews you'll never ever use for fear of losing them?
