Just be glad that game doesn't have /emotes like other mmos. There would have been much /dancing, /kissing, /flirting, /etc.

I got access to this beta with my purchase of the Superslim, gave it try and could stand it for a few weeks. Then, the bugginess got on my nerves and stopped, definitely thought it was VERY promising. Anyone know if they worked out the bugs yet? I enjoyed the assault rifle the most, followed by the sniper rifle but that could be annoying to use the way the controls were. I have a feeling that this is going to be a largely long range style shooter, what does everyone else think?

Most guns have very limited range. The only ones with a good bit of range on them are the Tactical and Burst variants of the assault rifles. Only thing topping that are the sniper rifles. Otherwise, it's close-to-medium range combat most of the time. Of course, you can upgrade the marksman skill for each weapon type to have better range, but I doubt you'll be able to snipe people with an AR.

Some screens of the graphical enhancements coming in the new build. The new build is supposed to come out in April.

Interior environments, huh? I didn't see much of those when I played.
Oh, and they have laser weapons now too? Sweet.

Forge gun still looking good. Very Happy= :D

Looks to be quite sizable. Might reinstall this after that patch hits.

Looks like the game is out of beta, is anyone still playing this ? I'm debating on downloading it and giving it a shot

just downloaded and reading/looking around a bit. I'm just not that good at say R2 or CoD types of online/multiplayer. I did just ok with Mag (but did enjoy it). Just not sure if Its worth the learning curve/time this game is going to take.

Oh? I'd heard they were still working on it.
To be clear, when I say newbie-friendly, I mean the mode where players with a certain amount of War Points or whatever they are can no longer join in to just obliterate people with a massive SP advantage.

Yes, it's called "Instant Battle - Academy" and shows up as the only option (for this newbee) under the "Instant Battles" tab

I think it released on the 14th of this month, yesterday

Sweet. If you're going to play, be sure and let me know what you think of it. Smile

I think I'm done ... way too frustrating. I've spent hours and hours reading up ... wanting to make it work. They did a major rework of their skills tree between beta and this month, thus most all of the documentation you can find is outdated. And the skills tree is very complex and very poorly documented. They say it would take 7 years to update all possible skills, and it appears they will not be allowing a respect. The UI to buy and apply the skills/weapons/equipment is very poor (IMO). I've have a hard time with it. It is also buggy at this point in time.

The current maps and game modes are simplistic and really a bit boring. The joy (for me) was going to be the satisfaction of developing your character. But not sure I have the patience for the same game, for months and years on end. Guess I'm just not an MMO type of guy.

Everything in the game is geared to get you to spend IRL money, and not just once or twice, but on a continuing basis. If you are serious about sticking with this game, you would be best to fork out the 100.00 bucks for the elite pack. And even with this, you best study/read/be real careful in applying the goodies. Otherwise this game is going to keep bleeding you.

Agreed on the confusing skill tree... I found the actual skill setting page to be much better to understand than going in through the Marketplace, although once I got into game it wasn't much help anyway, still get spawn-camped constantly and if you shoot at somebody they just bunny-hop out of the way and escape... Poorly balanced game IMHO. Even at a zero price tag it should be engaging and fun to play. Shrug

Played the beta for 30 minutes, deleted it, and never looked back. I don't like the look, the feel, or the lay out. Just not my cup of tea :S
