"you obviously don't know what an argument is as there is only one person battling. Do you really fucking think I want subs? You think you can act all big and powerful just because you sit on a computer at least 6 hours a day like the probably nerdy unwanted retard you are with 4.3k subs? You think 4.3k subs is a lot? LOL you need medicine man. I don't want any subs as i just have a google account for other media and writing comments. Think twice before you act. You even said in your video you aren't that great of a player, and the comments agree you aren't. Maybe you should once again think twice before you act, stop being such an annoying, ignorant bastard that everyone wants to shut up, and god, literally, just shut up. Your voice gave me a headache :s"

"As a youtuber shouldn't be trying to be reeling in your viewers with exciting stuff being said not your boring ass commentary for your video"

"The more you watch his vid the dumber he gets I swear he's borderline autistic look I got shot behind cover beacuase thin sheets metal are unpenetrable. Bf4 is just as quiet and tactical as bf3 random explosion in the background . Player has dissconected from chat
You started playing bf3 and never touched bfc1/2. Please do yourself a favor and shutdown your generic cod channel down"

"Nice clickb8 Faggot w8ting for your shit tier video to disable comments . Fucking newfag cancer go play some cod you activisiom cock faggot"

"I don't see why he [MarbleDuck] always tries to shit on levelcap he is better and has a million more subs...and also "there isnt a best gun in she game there are guns that are better that others at different engagement distances" yes thats true and whichever is the best/most average at all of them is the "best gun""

"Marbleduck you don't know shit lol levelcap knows more than you do you cant talk about how someone puts up garbage when you do yourself your a newcomer to YouTube acting like you know shit step up in the food chain first then you have the right to talk otherwise your just a fish trying to compete with sharks"

"Why don't we just witness "LevelCap vs MarbleDuck" One on One both on Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4 seen as there is so much Controversy about the Two Youtubers"

"stfu cunt, BF3 was way better end of discussion"

"Stfu man, you're be littleing the most looked upon Battlefield Youtuber. No one cares about you, how much of an ego you have, or quite frankly your opinion. It's a fucking game.... Does it really fucking matter? Pathetic man."

"fuck you asshole, dont talk shit about total"

"Wtf is your problem? You have no subs and he has millions, yet you pick on him like some kind of stubborn, ignorant, rude child born with a silver spoon is his mouth. It's easy to do that, for example... You said there was no background noise yet there is. You say you're a fairly good player, you're not."

Me neither. That's why I am questioning the results before they are even out yet.

The researcher can interpret whatever he wants if the participants dont understand 1/3 of the questions.

sounds like what happened with the psychologists during my second day hospital... i wasn't able to finish all of the questions because i had to ask every time what they meant, while my parents straight up gave opposite answers that made no sense because they didn't understand.

just, be more clear with the questions.

Oddly, BF3 doesn't do this.

Add that to the list of things "Battlefield 3" does not have. It also will not get a game client like "Battlefield 4".

I'm not sure if I understood the bit about the money.

I'm fairly sure it was to test your level of generosity.

Are you generous? You would give the stranger a lot of money. Are you selfish? You would keep a lot of money to yourself.
something something Model 8 bestgun


How to ice an A-91

Next, wanna try adding a guy that you KNOW is bad, and just testing to see that? Example: PP-2000 (god I so wanna love this gun, and yet...)

Example: PP-2000 (god I so wanna love this gun, and yet...)

PP-2000 added. Y'know, it's not that bad....

Yes, it comes in last so far, but that is mostly because I'm making it shoot at 100m ADS - Not Moving as one of the criteria. Even then, between 50-100m Not Moving, when you include Useability, it is only 1.37% worse than the MTAR-21. Within 50m then it even beats the A-91.

Have a look, vs. the A-91 Carbine:




Using it with Muzzle Brake and Compensator is a wash in terms of overall performance. Comp is SLIGHTLY more accurate, while MB is SLIGHTLY more easy to use. Their overall scores are basically tied, with MB just ahead. I guess either can be recommended.

But... You can't be counting for the fact that it takes 9 bullets to kill at "long" range... Don't you dare tell me my A-91 is worse than a 9 BTK 650 RPM mediocre PDW.

Also. Just go heavy barrel. The recoil is low enough.

Well, technically...

Comparing a PP2K with HB and an A-91 with comp and stubby (as you suggested in an earlier post), at 50m not moving, the A-91 is only better by 4 damage per hitrate. While at 75m and 100m, surprisingly the PP2K does better than the A-91 (I'm pretty damn surprised as well).

And 10m and 50m moving the PP2K also does more damage per hitrate than the A-91. At 25m the A-91 is only better by about half a bullet's damage as well.

In addition, the PP2K has a much larger mag size and substantially less recoil. And it looks hella awesome. So comparing the A-91 to a PDW is of some worth after all, as the PP2K is better (technically, not practically) than the A-91.

Mind blown.

I... I...

*cries in a corner*

Zer0Cod3x explained it very well. If you look at the raw numbers right here on Symthic Comparison, you can see how that happened:

A-91 vs PP-2000 | BF4 Weapon Comparison | Symthic

A-91's "23%" RPM advantage only afforded it 1 extra round.

Reload times are wash.

Velocities are wash.

V-Recoil are wash (and this is HBar on PP2k vs. A-91 without).

Hipfire and ADS - Moving are better on the PP2k, but it's a PDW and not the surprising part.

The surprising part is that, as equipped (and we see above that PP2k HBar has almost same V-Recoil as A-91 without HBar so why not?), the PDW performs better at 50 - 100m than a bloody Carbine. Why?

H-Recoil Spread, 0.525 vs. 0.45, advantage PP2k.

SIPS, 42% better on the PP2k.

And here is the most important part. ADS - Not Moving Spread, 0.35 vs. 0.2, 43% improvement.

Without HBar then of course the PP2k loses, which is why when I add all the attachments together for an Overall Ranking, it would slot below the A-91. Run HBar on it, though, then... I'm sorry

so how would you judge that with battlefield? like, you can't just say "we expect snipers or assault players to be selfish" so the results have to show top sniper players who give the input to set all selfish ratings... right?
that would be statistically useless considering how many ways there are to play a class.

What I want to know is why it is relevant how many people I've fucked?

The overwhelming majority of these questions are asking for specific numbers for things that no typical person would ever record. It's also taking a totally irrelevant snapshot of a person's life.

The past year I've been on 20+ dates, while playing BF3 and BF4 I had stable LTRs and "dated" only one person.

So...many...flaws.

The past year I've been on 20+ dates, while playing BF3 and BF4 I had stable LTRs and "dated" only one person.

Hence they ask for the approximate numbers instead of exact values. I figure it's enough for the research to know very rough estimate for the variables e.g. "1", "10" or "20".

And while these numbers might seem irrelevant they seemed to be something you would actually remember to some extent, instead of asking something like "how many hours of youtube videos you have watched in past a month on daily average" or something. Also for topics like these I believe they have bunch of studies concluding correlations between trait X and Y (e.g. more fines correlates with being reckless [just an example!!!]).

And finally, like Avelyn18 said, these should not be taken personally. The data is handled anonymously (I believe this is something unis are very careful about) and is inspected as a whole instead on individual level (maybe a sub-group). You can't conclude anything from one observation alone for a study like this, but for e.g. a practical psychology treatment stuff one could study individual's variables in the light of these bulk-results from a study like this, and then conclude something for that patient.

Slightly offtopic: Psychology (and social science) can have very controversial looking questions and approaches. I know one guy from brony community who did a research on something I would never, ever have balls to do.

so how would you judge that with battlefield? like, you can't just say "we expect snipers or assault players to be selfish" so the results have to show top sniper players who give the input to set all selfish ratings... right?
that would be statistically useless considering how many ways there are to play a class.

One of the applications of the statistics is exactly this kind of inference. Confirming your hypothesis like that (e.g. "Snipers tend to be selfish") is actually one of the core parts of classical statistics (tests, p-values). Battlefield is probably even easier to study in this regard because we can have accurate values of bunch of variables, meanwhile studying things like this "in real life" is very time consuming, numbers might be off and so on.

Also one has to remember the conclusions are averages of data and have nothing to do with individuals. E.g. It doesn't mean all (or even most) snipers are selfish. However if one started treating some psychological problem on bunch of people using these results as a guideline allow you have more correct choices for treatment than random guessing.

So long as you understood "push this slider to indicate how much money you want considering how much money the other would get" you're fine.

It's kind of relevant that the people who answer the questionnaire *don't* exactly know or understand why the question is being asked. It's part of the reason why many psychological studies are flawed: they're performed on undergraduate psychology students who often do have a good idea what might be the underlying questions, thus maybe adapting their answers. It's also why first or second semester students are more popular with researchers than late semester students. :D

Also psychological studies like this are very resilient to the fact that "there are so many ways to play a class", due to every class sort of having a dedicated role that it's more suited to than the others, which in a large sample size will conceivably be what is done *more* with it. It's wrong to say that "selfish players play recon and snipe". The correct way to put it if there even is a positive and significant correlation would be "selfish players tend to play more recon than other players", as it will never apply to everyone in the population. I'm not expecting extremely strong correlations here, but there will be small effects.

Memorable quotes not taken yet:


Of course, this ignores the non-constant cross-sectional first moment of area across the chest as well as non-constant material properties of the boob; it would be difficult to perform a more detailed analysis (as in, I'd have to have a shape function AND I'd need to derive a function for elastic modulus as a function of lateral breast coordinate) but whatever. It's 2am and I'm lazy.


I always believed science should be very hands on experience.

You should also answer this question I had posed in that thread: Would you be willing to pay your surgeon more if he was going to use a chainsaw for the opening incision of surgery? Clearly using a chainsaw isn't truly suited for surgery but that doesn't really matter. If he's "skilled" enough to be able to use the wrong tools of the trade, he should be rewarded for that skill right?
