A purely competitive game where you are also fighting against the game's unbalance and developer's bugs.
Another important piece of information is the game is purely pay to win. Any weapon, equipment, or vehicle you buy with cash is a level up (there are only 3: basic, advanced, prototype) on anything bought with in game currency at the same SP. So an advanced rifle bought with cash will equate to a prototype rifle, while a normal advanced will be.... advanced. Which really makes all the difference, and not your skill level
My final verdict came from most important battles (Planetary Conquest) being the buggiest with players dc'ing, lagging, and being completely frozen.
