OK Game Play

It's not Tribes, but it feels fairly familiar. I just miss the ability to change classes in a game. How many times I switched to Heavy to lay some artillery on the base to allow the team infiltrate the base while the other teams snipers are hiding. Then switching to scout to run in and grab the flag to get it closer to the door before I die and then switch again to a diffident class to assault the base now that the flag was near the door and then scout when it is out in the open to dash and get the flag for the 25 minute flag capture!

Eh? You can switch classes ingame! Just hit esc or I or P or...actually I don't know what you hit in the new patch, but you can switch classes, I do it all the time.

"Playing: ...MW3"

/facepalm

For never having played the game and not knowing anything about it, you certainly have a lot of unjustified criticism.

Yep, F2P/P2W, just like that horrible game Team Fortress 2.

Are these the same people that bought into Hellgate Londons Lifetime Subscription?

Seriously though, I'm interested to try out the game, but more interested in Firefall. If $8 is all it takes, I may look into that. Still, the devs promising to carry over stuff to official launch of the game is dumb. Launch day should be a relatively even playing field.



It doesn't even cost 8, you can play for free and do well. The 2 free classes previous to this patch are actually some of the best ones (ranger and solider). It's definitely not pay to win (so far). Playing/paying more just gives you more options, not better options.

With this patch you get 3 free classes: Pathfinder (good/great), Soldier (great), and Juggernaut (okay).

Yeah, I understand that. I only spent the lowest amount, 8 bucks I think it was, just to get permanent VIP status, which I'm confident will remain in some form throughout the game's lifetime.

You two are hilarious. "What about my unlocks *cry*". It's beta. Be prepared to lose everything at any moment. If you are worried about losing stuff, then don't play beta'.



Not sure if you're serious or not... But a big thing they've been saying is that ALL PROGRESS made in beta will carry over into release. AND they've been accepting money for gold and boosters which people have been using to gain this progress. So yeah, if they accept money for something and make a promise that it won't be wiped, people might get upset about that. Not so hilarious.

Anyway, full patch notes here: http://hi-rez.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/297

Awesome! I've been playing the hell out of the beta and having a great time. Not too worried about getting screwed on unlocks, I'm sure they have a system in place. Either a refund of tokens or an exchange system. Either way, I'm excited about the new patch with custom loadouts. I know what I'll be playing tonight. Again.

EDIT: From the patch notes...

CONVERSION NOTE: Due to the depth and breadth of changes in this update, users will start fresh in the game with no items purchased. Gold and XP will be refunded based on previously earned XP, Tokens and Gold in the game (such that your time in the game thus far is rewarded). This will allow each user to choose how to allocate their earnings optimally under the new system without being constrained by your previously made choices.

All I know is that over the past two months Diablo 3 went from being a "no doubt I'm buying that", to "I'll wait and see."

I certainly won't be pre-ordering, or rushing out on the street date to buy a copy.

I feel the same way, and I'm in the beta. I'm actually much more looking forward to Torchlight 2 and Grim Dawn at this point.

Just got into the SMNC beta. Going to give it a go this weekend and see how it plays. Oddly enough, I also got into the Dota 2 beta a few hours before. Woohoo!

I tried the demo and liked it. But also heard it was kind of short (5 hours). I'd definitely pick it up on a sale price of $5.

I've been playing the beta for a while, and I'm enjoying it very much. It's such a refreshing change of pace from modern FPS that are slow and clunky. It feels so much more skill-based than CoD or BF3. Not that those don't take skill, but in games like Tribes/UT/Quake one really good person can have a huge impact on a team.

You think, you can actually "achieve" something? You waste time playing video games while having some fun. But you do NOT achieve anything.

You think, you can actually "achieve" something? You waste time living life and pursuing whatever goals you think are meaningful. But you do NOT achieve anything. You're going to die, all life on this planet will die off eventually, and when the universe reaches maximum entropy it will all be over.

Happy New Year!

I finally bit on the 8 dollar VIP package (mostly for lifetime +50% token and XP rewards). Really enjoying this game.

I mean really can't we just have an auto ski and a real skiing option? But that is something that will just take practice to get used to.

Not sure if this is what you mean, but in key bindings there is an option to toggle skiing on or off, so you don't have to hold space all the time, and you can bind it to whatever.

I've been playing this for a few days and am really enjoying it. Love that movement is a skill, and it's not slow like CoD/BF3.
