Tried Anarki last night. I mean, I have like 40,000 favor, but the whole renting for 24 hours thing really bothers me. Were it "rent for 60 in-game minutes" or "5 matches" I'd be down with it, but 24 hours feels like I need to be around to play to get value. Which may be what they want, but for me personally, rather than incentivize me to play more it incentivizes me to rent less. I don't want to feel like not playing one more match means I'm missing out on something.

Also, I hated Anarki. Not being able to open an empty map to get a feel for the character you just rented is dumb.

Id like a "try out" type function, maybe on a movement assault course would be great. I honestly feel some of your points (whilst really valid mate, not trying to belittle them) are somewhat mitigated buy how easy it is to accumulate favour.

I honestly think ill be buying the game in either-case if i spend any time with it, so its kinda a none issue personally.

Oh that's super weird, I played in the one two weeks ago and now this one. Never had to rent or unlock though I understand that's how the final game will be.

I started off playing only Slash but the wide health differences between her and the heavies was pretty annoying and un-quake like. Now I'm playing Visor to essentially have the same speed but with a little more health and armor.

Betas weekends prior to that had champion renting. All thought i supposed like this one, it might be conditional on when you joined the beta phases.

To be honest is very easy to earn enough favour to rent a champion and if rocket jumping is part of your movement behaviour, Ranger is the best at it in any case :-)

Pretty much agree with everything in your post there Beamer...

But one technical aspect,
Since they're not all unlocked (and I'm now level 10 without having played a single other hero), it's hard to really know what you're up against: you need to play as a hero to really get it.

At least the past two betas (maybe more) have had all of the heroes available, none of them are locked down.


They are not locked down, you just need to rent them. Anyone form last beta also has them all unlocked as though they bought the game. but anyone new is back to renting for favour. So....

Out of interest Beamer, given you have played for some time, why have you not tried a few more? (you must have the favour for it).

You are thinking of something else mate. This came out in around 09 as i recall.

News Comments > Dawn of War III Released
17. Re: Dawn of War III Released Apr 27, 2017, 17:10 Theo
 
The people calling this a moba are head in hands dumb frankly... The thing is that the objective is similar (IE kill the enemys "core"), but other than that its a very relic style RTS with hero units that require you to do a little micro management (as to be expected from a DOW game).

Honestly the steam reviews of this are everything that is wrong with steam reviews.

For me, i am enjoying it - its not quite what i wanted from a DOW game, but i will get my moneys worth i think.

techncially it feels a bit rough, a few frame rate issues - options not sticking the options menu etc. hope that gets patched up soon.

Hmm, any idea why Valve would be instituting this change now? Given all the work that goes into increasing your ranking, I'm not immediately seeing why someone would want multiple accounts, or why it would be a problem for Valve.

without speaking to how effective this is.

Smurfing is a huge problem on the DOTA/LOL/HOTS scene.

Its pretty fun for a high level player (who doesnt make much progress anymore), to start a new account and blaze through the lower ranks for fun.

It fucks things up for the lower ranks though, and skews all the match making generally.

It needs to be stoped. i dont know this is the right way though.

2. Re: Out of the Blue Feb 7, 2017, 04:26 Theo
 
I honestly though 343 did a great job with Halo 5, and especially as they are just updating and droping DLC for free, buy game get tones of content. Sure the campaign was a little short, but it was pretty good (not the best, but v good none the less).

My only regret is that unlike other microsoft series, they have not put it out on windows 10 (gears 4 is on windows 10, as is forza horizon etc) and they are all exceptionally good ports.

I also have a much smaller msata drive (salvaged from a dead NUC) that houses my Microsoft Store games, because they don't accurately report the space they eat to the OS. Gears 4, Forza Horizon 3 and Killer Instinct eat up the entire damn thing though, so I'm probably gonna be upgrading it if I'm still occasionally playing Gears when Crackdown 3 comes out. Although to be fair, KI's probably first on the chopping block.

Bit confused by this mate? i also install my Windows store games on a differnt drive, but i dont get the comment

"because they don't accurately report the space they eat to the OS."

Add remove programs says gears is 96 GB; the directory its in is 94 GB, what am i missing?

Not sure how they're completely screwed when they're getting refunds?

Got an original pebble (from the first kickstarter) and a time steel. They're still working fine.
When they eventually break I'll look to see what else is out there, but currently if I want another waterproof, lightweight, always on display and a 7 day battery life on a smart watch there isn't one.

take a look at the Vector watches, like the Luna...

30 day battery life.

if anyone's on the fence about this title, it's currently 32 dollars on origin when you use the code TITAN20 at checkout; it stacks with the current black friday sale.
Wow that price didn't take long to come down.
Is the game popular online?

not hugely, but i have no problem getting games in the UK.

No wait time (playing attrition game mode).

Its worth nothing (that whilst i haven't done it myself yet), everyone in my gaming community's are gushing about how good the single player is.

i would have never considered buying a game like this, but watching the planet coaster lets plays might have just cost me some money.

Looks amazing fun... I am actually looking forward to playing it in 5 hours time.

Id love to see Frontier do a simcity type game; if this is anything to go by ...

In this case its not microsofts fault the UWP platform supports playing with other PC's (and xbox's for that matter); activision chose not to include it. Microsoft also offered up the refunds with no stress straight up with no fuss and next to no internet prompting.

but its cooler to troll MS right? who needs the truth?
Microsoft should refuse to allow the game on the platform without PC support or at the very least warn people on the store page. Imagine buying a pair of scissors only to find out they don't cut 99% of paper. As it stands it's not acceptable to simply offer a refund after the fact.

I love how no-one in this topic is giving activation any grief. tools are available for free to make this work - they just couldn't be arsed.

Market place curation isn't what it used to be i grant you that, just look at all the broken games on steam and origin; hell look at all the stuff you can buy from amazon that isn't fit for purpose.

Activision simply didnt want to invest the time in making it work properly; but its cool, lets blame microsoft.
