They are not designed to beat the #1 player in the world, they are designed to practice against. You can find bots under TRAINING -> bots. You can add bots to your game via PLAY -> Host Game in the menu. Alternatively you can use sv_addbot (additional available parameters displayed in console) Bots are a first pass and will likely receive future improvements and fixes. Bots (to map creators) To use them in your levels, you can build navmesh with the editor toolbar (or with nav_build), these are saved when maps are saved, and published to workshop when maps are published To debug the navigation, you can use nav_debug 1 Use EntityNavLink's to set up special jumps for bots, you can also help them take jumpads which are not usual trajectory note: You'll need to upload your nav to the workshop before people can play bots on your maps! General improvements: Country code length from 2 to 7 chars (sct flag for CrazyAl) Can now forfeit in overtime r_smaa 1 is now default AA screenshotClean will now ignore replay primitive objects (camera spline etc) Entity reflection probe position now effects lighting hash (i.e. moving reflection probes will now cause lighting to become invalid) MM improvements: Blocked MM if game owner isn't same as logged in steam id (i.e. using family sharing) Now receive CP for winning competitive games Added Turbo Tuesday!

Spawn system: LOS test now much looser (i.e. it won't pass if spawn point is hiding behind a pillar for that instant) Changed gconst_grenade_trace_radius_world 1.0 -> 0.5 Changed gconst_grenade_trace_radius_entities 0.25 -> 0.0 Bug fixes: Fix for crash occuring in client remote console when attempting to format bogus strings MatchPicker widget: added clip on author name to prevent long names overhanging map tile Fixed issue around "Start" button on menu where it was trying to show an empty hovertext next to it Removed sounds heard during load screen Game countdown no-longer aborts if someone disconnects in MM games. (I believe this was the cause of behaving players receiving bans - the countdown would stop as opponent has DCd, then they'd DC (rather than wait for the full timeout) which would give them short ban.)

    I'm hoping the devs would like to try a different system for quick play FFA games - I think it would be ideal to keep an FFA game going and let people join soon in. I really enjoy FFA and play it whenever I see a game going on, and I've tried playing FFA and instagib games using the new MM system - it is only ever three people (which is fine, that's a playerbase thing for now). The other night I had a three player FFA game, and afterwards we were all in the lobby afterwards (that is, the same server)... but we couldn't ready up to play again, and we couldn't vote for mutators. I'd like to see how it would go if there is just an EU FFA game going on at any one time, like an official server, that people can quickly join if they go through the quick play option. Make it clear that it isn't ranked and there will be a big difference in player skill if necesssary, but I don't think people mind to be honest. I'd rather play with 7 other players and be at the bottom of the scoreboard than I would play with just two other players. The MM system is fantastic for duels and doubles and so on, but FFA and instagib, I think, need a different approach. FFA is much, much more accessible than other modes for casuals and beginners, and is in fact a good introduction to the game mechanics, movement, weapons, aim, items and so on. I quite literally did this when I first started playing the game. It was only later on that I started to get interested in the 1v1 game. Hopefully the devs have statistics for who queues for what, and maybe they'll see people queuing for FFA and not getting a game for a long time. So yeah, discuss? This is something I am a little concerned about right now.

    If every1 has a golden weapon there is no real incentive to get a golden weapon. If it takes a long time to get, it's more desirable, especially since less people will have it. The way it is at the minute is good, because it's a real grind to get a golden weapon & not many people will have one.

    Fully agree Quickplay should be separated from MatchMaking. Quickplay should be drop in/out. Atm it's just better join empty server than use MM.

    Since the last update I've had FPS drops which I never had on any previous version of Reflex. I got a solid 150-200 FPS but for example, if I hit someone with a direct grenade up close, my FPS would sometime drop below 60 for a split second. Another example is on the map Sanctum. You can see in the screenshot that I get around 40 FPS when I'm about to hit the bumper (never happened before). I wanted to know if I'm the only one with this issue or if its from the last update (1.0). Edit: talked with some players on a stream and told me they noticed some FPS drops as well.

    To get all 7 golden weapons should be a task of a lifetime, not 7 months. I don't want to see everyone running with golden bolt in half a year.

    Instagib must be with more than 3 players. 1 player just can rekt 2 others (I'm not saying about situacion, when 1 of that 2 leaving) And same about FFA. Also Arena 1v1 can become to 1 guy rape everyone else. Here definitely need some changes.

    QL is effectively a 17 year old game. You'll have to upgrade, no amount of optimization is going to make Reflex run well on a low-midrange system from almost 10 years ago.

    Post anything related to bots here, feedback and suggestions are welcome! Here's something I noticed about bot's behaviour while two 50 skill bots dueled each other in Aerowalk: Bots doesn't seem to pay any attention to ammo, they would sometimes try to fire at the opponent when they have no ammo left Bots doesn't actually roam around the map but they will easily get stuck on waiting some particular item to respawn (waiting next to +25hp, essentially doing nothing) Weird prioritization over weapons, sticking with Burst Gun even after they've collected other weapons Not sure if this is intentional but bots are able to gain levels while they play

    Edit: The patch which was just released has fixed this for me. I've encountered a bug in 1.0 that I have not seen in previous versions. My audio is acting very strange. It's hard to describe, so I've included a video. You'll notice the strange audio clipping when I pick up items, and also during the second half of the video when I listen for the impact of the plasma balls. I'm using a Razer Kraken USB headset, with the latest drivers. In Razer Synapse, I have tried setting Reflex to use 2.0 Stereo and 7.1 surround, but both yield the same result.

    I understand that the devs are reluctant for new players experience to be a potential stomping, but I do think FFA mitigates that, and the way I was talking about it just now in Discord is.... it's the turbo queue button for FFA. It's the player saying 'I don't mind playing with better players if it means I can play with more people'.

    I've never played this game before but I bought it this morning after seeing it on RPS. I've noticed a small problem with respect to the YouTube videos. This video (https://gaming.youtube.com/watch?v=s7plphgW0tU) is the first one in the list for Reflex, yet it's three years old and begins with a warning that all art is placeholder. A new trailer should be released (if it's not done already) and pushed to the first result or else new potential players might get the wrong idea.

    I wonder if it's related to the new jumppad effects? Has anyone tested whether Pocket Infinity (no jumppads) has changed for them? Or whether there's a pronounced FPS drop on Ruin (3 jumppads).

    Would like to see bots try to go for RA/MH/YA, all game. Would also like to see bots prioritising the rockets, ic & bolt when they have them. For me, don't know about any1 else, but the bots keep walking backwards and getting stuck on walls. Would like to see this fixed.

    Hey @shooter, an idea to rework casual FFA + CTF matchmaking, similar to how other games do it: Firstly, imo 'quick play' and 'matchmaking' should be separate buttons on the menu for minor sake of clarity and to aid in implementing casual FFA/CTF in the way of either: splitting FFA/CTF into a ranked casual and quick play casual, or doing away entirely with a casual FFA/CTF that involves any sort of hidden elo, at least in the current state of the game with as low a playerbase as we have, in favor of adding at the very least FFA + CTF to an actual quick play menu that will connect you to public servers running these modes that fall within the ping region selected. Also, alongside that, remove the locks on the official FFA + CTF servers so that they can be used in the same way, but with both official and community FFA + CTF severs, you will still be able to connect to them through the browser as per usual. This also comes with the benefit of being able to join games in progress, having drop-in drop-out play, which may or may not be a plus, but at the least it will potentially speed up casual matchmaking to only have to wait for an open slot rather than an entire game to end and re-queue. The servers allowed can be regulated by the dev team of course or even simply kept to the official servers, but currently I don't see many FFA's being put together through matchmaking once the population settles from the patch hype. This way FFA and maybe ctf, I think, could easily be kept consistent as players would filter in through both the browser and quick play, and if somebody really wanted to play a ranked FFA/CTF, (which if the game grows enough, I personally would use ranked CTF often) you could just keep them on the competitive list of matchmaking with their separate ELO's. In my thinking, if you're willingly playing casual FFA/CTF, you're accepting already that there wouldn't be a hidden ELO and that somebody else in-game may be quite above your skill. This is also how CSGO does casual matchmaking, so that's where my experience with the system comes from. Sorry for the long post and my jumbled two cents since it's early and I'm at work with little sleep, it may be more difficult to read than it should be. Also, if any of this already works in a way I've described I do apologize, I have not yet had a chance to actually play the new patch. Edit: Also forgot Clan Arena, that would fit here too.

    First of all, dont take this as me complaining, im in love with the ladder/golden weapon idea and im very happy about the release! That being said, i wanted to make some math about the golden weapons. lets say i win 50% of my matches (which i dont lul, prolly more like 1%) and manage to play consistently around 3 hours a day (which is probably above average) this means 3 hours ~ 18 duels (if i only play ladder, and only play duels which i don't) = 9 wins = 90 points. Considering a weapon costs 3000 pts. it means i would have to win 300 duels,therefore play 600, which translates in 6000 minutes (100 hours) which would be one month, With the full set taking 2100 duels to get with 21000 minutes of gameplay (700 hours) and therefore 7 months. Now considering a lot of people dont play 18 duels a day, more like 6 i would say, this means it would take 3 months for one golden weapon and still 6 a day is no joke. How do you guys feel about this? I like the idea of them being hard to get and all but it seems a bit overkill and i feel like probably i won't even get one, mostly because i suck lmao. were they intended to be this hard to get? Will they be available only for this first 3 months and then the next 3 we will get some other ones, making the current ones unavailable? Again im not complaining, im just interested. Keep on fragging boyz

    I will try and do an official tutorial for you sometime soon, got a lot of things going right now but I'll make sure to do one so it helps you and other new players! I do have few videos on that map but none of them explain how I did any of the jumps and/or routes so it would be silly to post a video here of me breaking the record when you and other new players won't even understand how I did it. Peace out!

    He's not running an AMD GPU. Can you go back to stock just to verify that it is really not the overclock causing the freeze? The stability of an overclock can decay over time and just because it's stable in one application doesn't mean it's stable in another. I've had overclocks crash after 17 hours of prime95.
