 @Kevin-V  Odd place to ask this question, but saw that you played violin and was curious when you started. Started my daughter when she was 5 and two years later there is still no one near her age level that plays in a town of 60,000. I think it is starting to get her down, and just throwing this out there in case you have any ideas. (

If you get  a chance thanks, if not no worries, I got my B.A. in classical guitar so I figured I'd reach out to a classicaly trained gamer.

I am having a blast playing this game!  I play all day long, and don't lag at all on high settings.  Organizing attacks with dozens, maybe even hundreds of people is really quite an amazing experience.  The outfit I'm in has hundreds of active members, all very organized.  Haven't had this much fun for a long time.

I must be one of the lucky few who dont have too much of a lag problem. running on mostly high settings

running quad core, 8gigs, 7200rpm drive, radeon hd 4870, all overclocked of course

but there are a ton of bugs but strangely enough I haven't ran into any the completely ruin the experience...Ive only been playing for a few hours though.

Not a good sign when a reviewer's comp gets such a chuggy framerate.

Hey guys--running about 10 minutes late due to some weird crashing problems. But I should be up and running shortly!

Fantastic game! It's  improved alot from the beta,Great fun.

I played it since beta and it's very addicting and highly recommendable. It's basically a BF3 on crack. Although the fps mechanics are not as good as BF3, they are solid enough and what this game makes up for it is the epic scale and excellent team play. This game has more Battlefield moments than all Battlefied titles combined.

 

Some warnings though. It's an MMO which means a lot of stuff is not in the game yet. Most notoriously a mission system that should help new players get some direction and additional content that allows for a more strategic meta game. These will all be added though and should not stop you from having a blast already. Just make sure you join an outfit or team up with others to get the best out of this game.

I've been having fun with it, just started playing today. My only complaint is that unlockables take longer to obtain than I'd like.

Its not bad but it has problems... lots of them which is a pity as I like the game and I feel that we lack a good MMOFPS.

This is a very fun game, still has some launch cramps but the team seems dedicated enough.

This game is really fun the beta was bland but now that we can actually get new guns upgrades and there's more people playing its really good

 @r_ruiz6047 Did it not occur to you how much a d-bag you look like with a comment like that?

 @TheOnlyConan I';m running a 2gb 6950 with an older Phenom II X4 955 BE slight overclock on each and it runs flawlessly with everything maxed and PhysX off.

 @TheOnlyConan Your processor is the most important thing for this game. If you don't have a core i5, you will have to get used to those fps.

 @CallMeDuraSouka Shoot me an email: kevinv@gamespot.com. Maybe we can come up with something.

 @CallMeDuraSouka you know he published his e-mail at the end of the article so you don't have to post it here for everyone to see right?

 @PinkyLord graphics card on this game is almost irrelevant, you need an amazing CPU to run the game as its 70% CPU and 30% GPU if you had to put it into a percentage

 @PinkyLord Same here. i7 930, GTX 465 SLI x2, 8GB RAM, 1920x1080. I get about 40 fps on high settings. Knocking it down to medium doesn't even change much.

 @SteamyPotatoes I take it you know it's F2P? Still, if you were referring to Station Cash then fair enough.

 @wezkilla but till then then, i'll go back to my battlefield 2142 for some sci-fi strategic mayhem even if it was released in 2006! (the MP is still active, suk on that CoD!)

 @Zero_Echo  @mlcarter815  @PinkyLord I hope that is a joke... i can tell the difference between 90fps and 120fps on my 120hz monitor. Its different for most people but if you can't tell between 30fps and 60fps you may want to see a doctor.

 @mlcarter815 7850 is 2gb of vram by the way. But I don't think it should affect the performance that much, should it?
