I really didn't like this game on release (I still don't), infact I couldn't even play it for the first week it was out. Not figuratively but literally, the servers wouldn't let people on a certain ISP in my part of the country conenct. When I did get on the lag was terrible hit detection was atrocious and spawns were the worst that they have been.
A month later
Lag is better, it's not good by any means but more often than not it's working on par with a decent 3 bar in previous titles, hit detection still sucks just keep shooting till they die. Damage seems really inconsistent in this game sometimes I kill in 4 shots sometimes it's 10-15 shots depends on the connection but it is technically "playable'
Spawns still really suck. I got a triple today by accident shooting some one and two other people spawned behind him.... In FFA... on Overflow...
Try it out, the more you play it the more you expect it to be bad and the less frustrated you get with it. They tried so hard to make it competetive and screwed everything up that was supposed to balance the game.
I think the mindset you need to take going into this particular game more so than any others is that;
-It is a video game not Real Life
-It's poorly produced but eventually (hopefully) it will get patched
-Spawns are crazy always turn around and chech behind you before moving forward
and finally bust most importantly,
-Everything that you thought made you a good player in previous titles punishes you and makes the game super super difficult.
Play smart, and remember if you don't enjoy it take a break!
