1st Corps August Newsletter

Welcome to the August edition of the 1st Corps Monthly Newsletter! This newsletter provides a way for you to know what is going on in your corps, milestones people have hit, upcoming events, and more! If there is anything that you'd like to see in the next edition, please let me know!




This month we are taking a look at our Escape from Tarkov (EFT) Division. The game underwent a wipe about a few months ago where everything in the game is completely wiped, and you have to start over as a new player and work back up through the levels. This wipe also includes a variety of updates and new content. I spoke with several members from the division, let's see how things are going since the most recent wipe!



How long have you been playing EFT?


Turbo Snail (SL from IN 1st bat): This is my second wipe currently or about 8 months.

GHOST_LOK1 (SM from 2nd bat): Only for a year I started back Christmas time last year .

ItzBeeDee (SM from 2nd bat):  I started playing Tarkov early January this year, which happened to be the start of the previous wipe (more on that below). It took me a while to get into the game, so it wasn't until I joined the Tarkov division in May that I really started to play more and get better.

davidj123456 (SL from IN 2nd bat): 2 years



 Overall, what are your thoughts on the wipes that the developer does roughly every 6 months? 


Turbo Snail: I don't mind it I think its a good thing that way people wont get bored with the game. Once your at the top that's it. Its good that it resets.

GHOST_LOK1:  I think they're a really good idea. They learn how we play the game, and trading system and how it's going.

ItzBeeDee: Initially I hated the idea of losing all of my progress. Now I've experienced a wipe myself, I've realized they actually make the game a lot more fun. Everyone is on an even playing field again (for a while) and the wipes are always accompanied by some new content. Of course, map and quest knowledge stay, so that also makes things more interesting than when I ran around like a headless chicken in the last wipe 🙂

davidj123456: Recently there have been too many wipes adding very little content



Do you think the latest wipe has been an improvement?


Turbo Snail: Honestly no, when I was introduced to the game it was a bit easier to make money, now its a lot harder. I guess that may be a good thing so we don't have 1000s of billionaires running around in game.

GHOST_LOK1: 50/50 wipe has improved the game, but it's made things very hard this been my first wipe. Before wipe it was easy to level up and make money, but now it's harder to level up and make money.

ItzBeeDee: New content is always an improvement. The Factory map expansion is nice albeit a little smaller than I had hoped. I absolutely love the new concept of Scav Karma, though that also needs quite a bit of work until it really works. Raising the Flea Market level requirement to level 20 has also made things more interesting in my opinion.

davidj123456: Yes by far. Overall player progression now takes longer. Usually I get to the "end-game" within a week, this wipe it took me two weeks. It has been doubled for all my friends too.



What would you like to see the developer bring to the game that they haven't yet? 


Turbo Snail: I would like to see that whole game become a large open world. From what i have read that is in the works for the next few years.

GHOST_LOK1: New maps and server that allow you to play with friends from other countries.

ItzBeeDee: New maps are always great to look forward to, and the upcoming Streets of Tarkov seems like an incredible map. What I look forward to the most though are the plans to make one massive open, interconnected map. I can't wait to see how they'll pull that off.

davidj123456: They have promised map-to-map travel, modular armor system, and interia. I want to see them add it. Also PMC Karma.



Is there anything the developer has removed that you would like back?


Turbo Snail:  I would say access to high end good ammo. It is a lot harder to get a hold of now.

GHOST_LOK1: Black market that was unlocked at level 10 would be nice.

ItzBeeDee: As I've only experienced one full wipe, I can't really think of anything. The one thing that did annoy me was the fact that they added a level 71 requirement for the Kappa Container. This makes it nigh impossible for anyone with a life outside of Tarkov to get this item.

davidj123456: No



On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate the game and why? 


Turbo Snail: 8. -2 because it is so unforgiving. This game is hardcore.

GHOST_LOK1: 8 it game where you get killed in a stupid way, but it make you want to improve so you don't do that again.

ItzBeeDee:  I'd give it a solid 8. I greatly enjoy the game as it provides an experience unlike any other game. There are still numerous things to improve though, and it needs more content for it to better as well.

davidj123456: 9 very challenging game with a lot of progression. hardcore the way I like it. Amazing gunplay and pvp is easy to come by


"If you want to try a more realistic shooter and test your communication skills, give Tarkov a try! Playing with teammates is incredibly different from your usual CoD or Battlefield as you need great comms to avoid shooting each other in the head (and trust me, that'll happen a few times haha). The thrill of hearing someone running near you just as you got that one quest item you needed is just incredible."- ItzBeeDee


If this game sounds like it is something you'd enjoy, you should check out the EFT LFG channel in the main TG Discord! They are a very active group!


Next month, we will be exploring Call of Duty. See how things have changed over the years that they have been a division and how thigs are currently with the game!
