I think it looks pretty good considering they only have 2 full time people on it.

Sniper, sparrow, and shotguns are not hitscan.

That's cool... except they are hitscans.

Yeah, they are hitscan. And it's the reason Sentinals (sniper) will be nerfed or removed in the future, once enough people get good enough to make it (more) obviously ridiculous.

(It's already ridiculous if you play against good Sentinals.)

Nitron grenades now cause the user to drop their own flag if self-damage is caused. That's a pretty big change.

Funny. I finally just got around to finishing Portal 2 today. It was a lot of fun to go through. The characters were neat and the ending was just... Pretty cool.

I guess I need to try the multiplayer mode now.

I had even MORE fun in the co-op mode. Try to play with a friend with voice if you can.

I'll be impressed if they manage to ever get this game out.

They will, they just have a pretty small team, some of them aren't even on the project full-time.

The video looks good, can't wait to play it.

This is totally anti-climactic without any kind of screenshot or videos to accompany the announcement.

Yeah, it's kind of lame without screenshots, at the very least.

Is there some trick to earning EXP faster? I'm only getting about 600-900 per match.

XP depends on length of the match, performance (just a little bit), and if you win or lose (500 extra if you win). If you like the game and don't mind spending money, it's a good idea to go VIP. That is, make your first purchase (think the cheapest is an $8 booster that lasts for 10 days). Once you make your first purchase, you're permanently VIP, which is an automatic 50% XP boost, AND it stacks with the other boost. So for 10 days, instead of getting 1000XP for a match, you'd get 3000XP. The boosts also work on the new badge system (the extra XP unlocks for doing certain things), and you tend to get a lot of those when you first start playing.

Normal/VIP/VIP+Boost

500/750/1500

1000/1500/3000

2000/3000/6000

3000/4500/9000

EDIT: Not sure if I was clear, but the VIP bonus lasts forever (after the 10 days).

And try to find one class you really enjoy, and work on unlocking things in that class. Once you have everything you want in a fun class, just play and have fun, and the XP will roll in gradually.

Hmm, open beta is available, guess I'll give this a shot. 2.4gb download from installer. I'm curious if this supports a controller or if I have to use a mouse and keyboard. Would be awesome if I could play this via controller.

You don't play competitive PC FPS with a controller. That's blasphemy.

Video made me chuckle. Really enjoying this game, it's currently my favorite FPS. They still have a lot of things to add and polish, but the base gameplay is FUN and that's what counts most. I mostly play Pathfinder, capping or chasing.

Like others have said, it's easy to try now, don't even need a key anymore, just make an account, download, and play. Learn to ski before you learn to shoot.

I really don't think it's a m/kb vs. controller issue at all, as they've addressed that in past interviews. Bascially it's a non-issue since people would be ranked on their ability, regardless of what system they're on. So really good console players would be going against mediocre PC players.

The patch reason makes much more sense, just look at TF2. If they wanted to update CS:GO as much as TF2, it would be a logistical nightmare to do it on consoles and their patching process/verification system. And since a lot of it would be balance-oriented, it would hamstring the PC side while waiting for the console patches to go through "customs" all the time.

And it actually doesn't seem to be a demo, at least that I could figure out. You have to pay to activate it.

The best snipers (sentinels) that I've seen play defense, watching flag capper routes. Usually a capper takes damage when they take the flag, and one snipe is enough to finish them off afterwards. They also shoot incoming cappers, and random offensive players. A good sniper is VERY annoying to cappers.
