I've played the beta for a while and I agree with all the naysayers here. The world is way too big and bases swapping gets old, or whichever team has more players tends to start advancing. Maybe with more full servers the fun factor will improve. Yes it has a huge potential to be a great game, but it isn't right now. But since it's F2p, so do give it a try. It has its moments and they can be great.

If you only knew or had played the original you wouldnt be saying that. The battles we had were epic. To this day there is no shooter, MMO or otherwise, that can approach what that game did except for PS2. On Sundays a full server occupied with chain-of-command from the top strategists on down to armored division commanders, air cav, infantry etc. You would take away stories of memorable battles (many can be seen on YT) The community was great because you were part of something larger instead of just shooting as many people as possible to get your next bright shiny toy. it was much more satisfying.

the first game allowed for 600 people per server (200 per empire). PS2 is going for 3k (1000 per empire). It will be staggering. The game also has a somewhat steep learning curve for an FPS. So when you grasping what the bases do, what benefit they are to your empires abilities, certification points, implants, weapon attachments etc the sense of accomplishment is much sweeter.

to the rest of you guys who can't hack the changes or the learning curve, by all means, go back to team deathmatch and all its tired variations. Just dont bitch when you complain that theres nothing new being done with the FPS genre.
