Yeah, I'm really excited for this one but let them their time. I have no problem with that. I have over 300 hours logged for the alpha and I've been playing a lot lately. The pking hasn't stopped at all, in fact I think It's gotten worse, if that's possible. I don't mind it so much as I find it challenging to hide from the bandits. I learn something new everytime I get killed by a bandit. Like, don't run across the field to Novy Sobor in the middle of the day because it's sniper city.
I wonder how the devs will curb the pking for the standalone, if that is even possible without changing gameplay too much.
Cities: Skylines is exactly what I've been looking for!
