What do you think the game will score, probably AA in my opinion since the game is lacking a bit in optimization.

I'll be supporting the Vanu master race

For those in the beta hows it going :P. I love how i pulled off stuff like taking down galaxys with a instant action deploy.

First review on metacritic so far

game is alright, but after playing in the same spot for 2 hours feels pointless. Massive battles didn't catch on the first time and I don't see it catching on this time...

Will the game ship with Not Crashing Every 30 Minutes, or is that part of an expansion down the line?

FREEDOM OVER OPPRESSION! I started with the New Conglomerate in the first game, and that hasn't changed for this followup. I do admit that I don't really get why the NC and the VS are fighting each other, since they both want freedom from the TR for their own reasons. I guess a bunch of higher-up NC folks decided the VS were gonna force everyone to become cyborgs or something and weren't going to have any of that. At least I don't have to worry about AA MAXes as much this time; the VS could easily shoot down Mosquitoes and Reavers in PS1 with ease because of those damn homing energy bolts you can't dodge!

I really don't have a side yet. Once I've seen more of the weapons, then I'll pick. Till then, I'll bounce around from side to side.

Try not to be on your own too much. Stay in groups or squads.

Thats not really helping, I was dropped straight into a firefight having no idea what the hell I was supposed to and was killed instantly. I think find my way back to a base of some sort trying to spawn a troop transport but it wouldnt let me sit in the drivers seat. I dont even know the controls as the key bindings in the options menu are blank!

Unfortunately the game does a bad job at explaining anything.

join up a large squad, find their colored icons on the map and also the map has flashing hex marks and fire icons for where battles are taking place, so spawn near one and help them out. Follow the zerg rush when you cap a point because they are likely heading to a nearby base for a new battle. Use bases to spawn vehicles from the holo terminals too

This game is pretty horrendous. Well I should probably say it's not my type of thing, the massive scale is simply too massive for me.

Anyway I got a beta key if anyone wants that.

Works okay on my tri SLI setup; not amazing, but okay. I'm using Surround, so it's still buggy.

I just find their weapons more satisfying to fire, although I do enjoy flying the VS cylon raiders.

It's F2P isn't it? I'll try it out after I grow tired of Black Ops 2's multiplayer. As far as PC shooters go I'm looking forward to Hawken more.

It really doesn't feel like it's ready to leave beta. Horribly optimized, balance still not figured out, glitches, etc. Also, TR masterrace. Everybody else sucks big time.

Imo Republic has nicest look, Vanu nicest background/direction, and the rebels have rock music. Can't pick.

I don't know if I'll bother too much with this game.

I've played a little bit, and chya it just wasn't really what I wanted out of a multiplayer shooter.

MY LOVE.

MY THROAT IS READY! [/spoiler]

Anyways the game is awesome. It's easily battlefield on lsd and steroids. The other day I was part of a massive caravan of Vanu tanks, troop transports and ATV's that just violated a bunch of TR bases and a biolab. It's so fvcking epic.
