    It's defintely growing on me but the key issue that remains for me is that I play solo, so it's a clusterfuck 3/4 of the time. One person will run off and get themselves killed and then it's only two of us and we're poked or it's people who it's their first game and have no idea and are still working things out. Mind you I had a team where we came second yesterday with a guy who it was his first game who I was trying to guide while playing. We lost as it was 2v3 and they had the high ground (curse you Kenobi).

    ive found the pinging system has meant randoms play better together then other BR's

    What I learnt though is you really need to stick very close together. Even being 20m apart can undo things very quickly.

    I come from a quake background, found the speed and pacing good.

    the bullet spongyness is a bit annoying.

    Worth giving it a try you might enjoy?

    FYI you can change damage numbers from stacking to floating or even off!

    The cosmetic system seems also very well fleshed out at launch with 100's of player skins, weapon skins, emotes, banners, badges, quips, poses, finishers and more. As many as Overwatch at least.
    RNG Loot boxes you can earn or buy for ~$1 each, with stated percentages, guarantees and no dupes. With access to view/hear ALL items available in game and buy individually, instead of being in the dark on what is available/RNG only. Combined with a crafting system with materials where you can grind for what you want. It has it all.

    Makes DICE game cosmetics look DOA in comparison.

    Edit: Having winning player banners displaying in matches around the map is also genius for a cosmetic income game.

    I think the no dupes makes the loot boxes very good. It means i can spend lal my crafting mats on common/rare items and then eventually be guaranteed to get the legendary/rare items from the loot boxes :p

    Squad based BR game is squad based only (3 man).
    Although there are plenty of tools available to help randoms work as a team, much better than other games.

    You can even have the game convert voip to text if you don't want to use it... or text to TTS apparently.

    kills are linked to the character.

    Hidden benefit of this game is it's absolutely fucking destroyed Battlefield V and will continue to through its BR launch. Maybe EA/Dice will finally learn, right?

    Sounds like EA are onto a winner here, especially with how loot boxes are treated, people may be more likely to spend up.

    Played 4 rounds. Definitely needs atleast 1 mate to play with. Matching with randoms sucks. Plus one of the games it put me in by myself. And two games they landed with several other squads, and not quite up to speed on where to find the good shit yet.

    Got a few kills. Fumbled around a bit, not sure what guns are good, what attachements etc. The Hemlock can EAD. Burst fire shit.

    It does seem pretty polished though. Frames decent enough, 70-120 or so @ 3440x1440, FOV 100, everything maxed.

    Best class to go?

    Best weapons?
