Thanks for the detailed reply, Rhett!

Just knowing there are Pve servers is good enough news for me to be interested. Yours isn't the first post I've read about performance problems. At the moment I'm on an average machine so it'd probably be a pretty hard hit. I'm still interested with the possible good Pve servers. I don't care if the whole damn server is in a gankfest as long as I'm able to opt out.

I'm defiantly used to playing hard core games like EQ and Vanguard, where Training Mob Hords is considered an art form by some deviant trolls. I'm sure I'll die many times, just trying to get used to the gameplay. I just prefer dying as a learning experince, not because some kid can't get laid and needs to take it out in pvp. Jester

The biggest thing is GPU I noticed. If you had a moderately modern GPU, it should be fine! Nvidia also seems to help.

So is this pvp or pve? I see Coop on the site, but you can never tell these days, the way some developers lie. I can deal with public pve servers, which require agreement to duel. But I'm sure they hell not interested in a gankfest.

There's PVE servers, but the majority are PVP. There are official servers, which are vastly unregulated and poorly maintained with low "rates" (slow gathering materials and taming dinosaurs), and there are unofficial, private servers that can be either amazing or horrible depending on who runs them.

PVE means nobody can attack you or harass you, though there are still minor ways to screw with people. You can, however, declare a mutual war on someone. They have to agree. Then your two "tribes" (basically in-game clans) can freely attack each other.

PVP, depending on the server and its rules, can range from completely unregulated shit-shows, to organized, gentlemanly and mature scenarios where people are generally very reasonable. Unofficial servers also can have mods that protect your base while you're offline. Our server is both mature and has one of those mods.

There are also a wealth of workshop mods that servers can incorporate, that change the game considerably.

Lastly, you can also play single player or host local servers. The performance will be much worse though, as wild dinosaurs "activate" when you're near them and it is quite draining on the CPU and RAM, on top of an already power-hungry game.

I'd say definitely worth it for $15 too. Cheapest I've seen it. I've helped run a server for the past year now, as well. So many bugs, but still fun.

Well, it's still a considerable amount of fun. And there's Grim Dawn and PoE for those who want to go hardcore into stats and min maxing...

It really needs an expansion or a sequel, though.

Glad to see someone isn't trashing on WD1 here... I enjoyed it, too. Just needed proper co-op out of the gate (never tried the DLC), though I need to reinstall it...

They need to add something worth doing... New content. New expansion. New characters. People are complaining there's less and less to look forward to every season.

I still want my god damn necromancer!

Been playing Ana as my new main, and I love it. I cringe at all the new Anas just sitting back and sniping, and not healing, though. There are a LOT.

Played one brawl where there were 3 Anas on the other team, all sniping (damage + ults for the most part) ... it cost them the game, to say the least.

It's a really good idea, and a really good game below it, but the devs are focusing on the wrong things and are only adding more issues lately.

The grind is also not very fun. A lot of people are using the SAME guns. Vectors everywhere.

I'm surprised ActionTrip is still around... always felt kinda sleazy with that gimmicky "girl of the day" business.

I find it kind of hilarious people are going so far as to be "pirates" for consoles, "stealing" content from PC... These people are so stupid.

Eh.. in fairness, this last patch revitalizes the game. The only problem I've ever had with it is performance, and that is now moot.

Still waiting for it, but will they do it? Feels like they've pulled a Rockstar and kinda dangled the carrot out there since release.

I had so much fun with the game on release though. Especially after The Division failed long-term to capture the same magic.

I don't see the problem here... You can buy similar stuff for Overwatch, no? Taunts and skins?

Bank space isn't necessary, you can already get a lot with just ingame money.

There are no in-game loot items being bought or anything. XP doesn't affect gameplay for anyone but yourself.

Looks like a good mix of Mercenaries, Future Soldier and The Division IMO. Just needs obvious polish (according to the 9 minute gameplay video). But, it has 9 months, so I'm excited to see how it turns out! It looks different enough from the other Ubisoft crap that it could be great.
