    A bit of topic here, but I would also like to voice my dislike for this new genre of games. BR is not something I can call fun to play. Being left "shacking" with adrenaline at the end of a round is not what I look forward to experience. Everyone plays games for different reasons, so shaming someone for not wanting to try a game is not really appropriate. I personally play games to relax and forget the day to day adult responsibilities so any type of BR game is out of the question for me...even free ones.

    Sorry for the rant....back to studio

    There is also nothing wrong with wanting other game modes in a BR game.

    Must feel awkward when you constantly get your shit pushed in in games like this by people with so called "simple minds" like Benno1988

    I can understand the complete disinterest in it. As I said I think the biggest thing going for this game currently is that it wasn't hyped prior to release. Every BR game has had massive viewership on twitch at release, especially when its fresh to everyone and all the big named streamers are either playing it to play it or playing it for views. Even Realm Royale and other games that are completely dead now had heaps of hype early.

    I personally downloaded it, I must be smart? Fuck me I wish my standards for banter were that low.

    You haven't already done that? I reinstalled, loaded in, saw you couldn't even queue FPP on OCE, and deleted it.

    I have lots of disk space so I don't uninstall much; but I wanted to leave what positive memories of it I have intact. No more Brendan, no more.

    Becuase I've been playing FPS since Doom 2. I know what I enjoy. It wasn't BlockOps. It won't be this. And NBN. 40mb/s or so. Its ok.

    I troll people in threads about shit games.

    Mudfish man $1.25 a month.. 80-120ms pings in SEA FPP all maps instant pop..

    2 dinners in a row duo the other night, as good as itl get. Generally when ping isnt a factor on average SEA players are worse then OCE was back in the day you and benno would carve up.

    Good enough excuse to zipmoney an upgrade I say :lol:

    Just got a second place with random dudes, last guy wrecked my team mate who landed alot of shots on him, managed to heal shield I assume I laid 1.5 mags into him and he killed me with pistol of some sort.

    The high TTK can be painful close range vs high level shields and when abilities are spent.

    50+ page thread over on ea.com... I'll wait for the devs to work their magic :D Apparently EA has done it before - patching to enable SSE 4.x workarounds on older processors.

    Yeah posted it earlier, good vid, even if sponsored.

    This guy goes into more detail about the good, bad and the ugly. Bit more impartial.



    A (rough) quote from this video that will piss people like japes and benno off:

    Apologies, missed that one. It's good to watch the overview indeed, I'm a little more interested in trying it out.

    i like it so far, 20 games in im getting use to the mechanics. everything seems very polished, maybe a bit arcedy but still fun. i still play pubg on singapore servers with vpn and i like its style more.
    its just so refreshing to have a game release that works from the get go. none of this early access bullshit on steam that drags on for years.
