I'll check it out tonight when I get home from work.
I have the beta installed but didn't really screw around with custom games, only did a match vs Ai and online against human players.

Please keep us posted - if it has full bot support, I might check it out.

Thanks!

I just logged in and checked and you do not get xp for custom games, full of bots or full of humans. You only get xp for:

1) "Play vs AI" which a team full of random humans against a bot team of either easy, medium, of high skill bots.
2) The "weekly brawl" mode, which is a humans against humans match featuring various rule changes. (for example, today's rule is that every time you respawn you are a different hero)
3) Quick Play, which is what most would call "normal mode". Humans vs humans, normal rules and modes.

Honestly, I am not a big fan of random online multiplayer, just in general. I like MMOs that allow for single player leveling and foster strong guild populations where I get to pick who I have my online experience with. I like shooters that allow me to pick who I am playing with. Needless to say, the online gaming revolution has left me more than a bit disappointed. All of that said, "Play vs AI" has been a blast for me as I learn the various ins and outs of the game and the rather large variety of characters. Long term, I will either get bored of the game or I will take what I have learned and go play against teams of people....but in the meantime I feel like even in the beta I am getting my moneys worth out of the Play vs AI mode.

Keep in mind, I am of the opinion that if I play a 50-60 dollar game for a couple hours a day, on and off, for a week or two....I got my moneys worth out of it. I love games like Skyrim where 300+ hours is considered a minimum, but video games are one of the few forms of entertainment I enjoy where 50-60 bucks will keep me occupied for longer than one evening. That's kind of how I view things just in general with this hobby, so if you have a different approach keep that in mind when I say things like "I got my moneys worth". With this particular game, I find myself liking it much more than I thought I would given my distaste for most modern shooters. Same goes for Paragon, a game from a genre that I historically dislike greatly. Sometimes video games just click with a person and it can be hard to put a finger on why that is.

Well, thanks anyway...

Can you run a full match with just one human player and the remainder bots on the human player's team and the opposition team?

Thanks!
Not as far as I know.

Yes you can, use the custom game setup.

Reaaaaly...now I'm semi tempted...are the bots decent?

Exactly how much? Numbers, please.

I hate to post one of those "is this game still active" questions, but is it still one of the most limiting F2P games? At least with GW2 and ESO you get full access. I probably would have spent more time playing if it hadn't had origin and the worst F2P limitations I've ever seen in a mmog, at least in the last 6 or so years.

As for ESO, waiting on the latest patch to prep for Dark Brotherhood, to finish downloading. Race

hmmmmmm
No idea what your talking about, does that make you stupid or a troll?

Hard to tell, isn't it?

I really hope that you meant to write "public", and that was just a typo.

Not sure who invest in a 13.3" chromebook when "real" computers are readily available.

That 3k ips display would fare better on a 15" or 17" Windows laptop and maybe they could even make it linux friendly.
Honestly I wouldn't mind a 13" chromebook at work, I'm constantly moving around and even my 15" laptop is a burden with everything else I need to carry. That said, I'm not sure the benefit of a 3K screen would be on a screen that small.

I think it's more the idea of a grand for a chromebook...at least that's my sticking point. My 4 gig, 32 gig of storage HP one isn't bad (typing this post on it), and it was only $250, including shipping.

I wouldn't mind another WWII CoD.
Even better, a time traveling CoD. One minute we're playing with muskets, pistols and sabers... the next with WWII rifles and SMGs... modern assault rifles... even blasters and plasma-sabers.

IN a way, Singularity was ahead of it's time, no pun intended...

"I think I know why we have pre-orders."
"I don't think you do. You see, you know how to *take* the pre-order, you just don't know how to *hold* the pre-order. And that's really the most important part of the pre-order: the holding. Anybody can just take them."

That reminds me, I've not bugged my coworker lately and watched his blood boil.

That's been standard for decades around here. If you want to opt out, they expect you to pay.
