    Ouch, guess there was an advantage to downloading it earlier then.

    Has anyone been able to connect yet?

    edit: looks like its another hour wait.

    If you have someone close by with a better connection might be faster and easier to just copy over the game files to an external hdd from their place.

    I can't launch the game post update. Steam says running and then the game never starts. After a minute it just says im not playing a game. So far ive tried verifying the integrity of my game cache to no success.

    Just posting this to assist people with google fu moving forwards the fix is to repair vc_redist.x64 install

    Just played it again, still a poorly optimised piece of shit. The game is good but anyone thinking this is an actual game release and giving it that credit is discounting the industry entirely.
    Yeah the Sydney servers are fucked, switch over to Vic and get your usual speeds.

    Anywho the game is indeed still a poorly optimised piece of shit as it was last week. But I'm glad everyone who didn't buy it is giving the devs some Xmas money to play with to continue to avoid addressing critical flaws in the game.

    I love the game, but it isn't really the best competitive shooter, CS:GO or something, maybe R6S?

    Sorry but they have completely fk'd the game for me anyhow.

    Updated the Nvidia drivers...verified the Steam files... game loads to lobby..get though to the pre-flight lobby and after 5 seconds..game freezes completely. Tried 10 times and same problem.

    Just tried again and now im getting "Matchmaking Failed" on all servers. Steam forums are full of people with similar problems.. too soon too soon for release!

    Played today for first time in 2 months... it's definitely a lot better. no real fps drops now.
    But still feel like the core game is sometimes a bit random... just not my kind of thing. Yet I've somehow played more than 80 hours still.

    Is anyone else stuck at matchmaking? Cannot get into a squad Oceania game, it just sits at matchmaking.

    Yeah pretty poor for a full release. Got on for a few rounds earlier and the lag jitters and slow rendering are still there. Now can't get on at all. How long has this been in early release?

    Fun game when it works, I'll persist.

    Of course there was always going to be issues with launch, what do you expect when theres so many million people trying to connect at once?

    You are kidding yourself if you think the game isnt better then it was a week ago..
