Game has been much fun for the 3-4 months I've played it. Mainly when you play it in with friends. Ranked with randoms is pure lottery where you mainly loose.
I enjoy that every game is different, because operator choices, player skill set differ. Have not grown tired of it yet, which is surprising because its just tactican non-cod shooter with nothing extra.
Support is getting better, battleye brought many people back, so the season start brought even more players to the game as there were initially, that is quite impressive.http://steamcharts.com/app/359550#All
There are bugs ofcourse with the broken netcode being the biggest issue that they have not yet figured out. They broke it few patches ago.
Latest patch brought some change to gadgets used by both sides, boosted/nerfed some operators while some still waiting for tweaks.
But starter kit wise just keep away from it, go to some website that aggregates all the key sellers and buy the game for 20 bucks/euros and be done with it. If you really like the game after that, go for the season pass OR buy the Gold edition for 30 bucks/euros right away, get best bang for buck. The grind to get new operators is very tedious with the starter kit and I have a friend who was gifter this starter kit and well he is not very amused when people joined way later and unlocked everything a lot sooner. for that few bucks difference it's just not worth it.
As you can see from this thread, it's a love or hate kind of a game, but the player base seems more mature on average and that makes it more fun.
I am not sure how it's possible, but it does feel like Ubisoft is actually trying to make the game better. I do wonder is this has something to do with the upcoming Vivendi hostile takeover bid.
