    I hate how they publicly advertise events for a game that's in closed beta.  Just doesn't seem right.  Open it up, or keep it between you and your damn testers...

    When I want a single-player story, I'll play a single-player game. When I play an MMO, I want a massively multiplayer world.

    All sounds good, but I really wish it was a new Sabotage map or something, we have enough TDM maps right now.

    I've seen one gameplay trailer released by RED 5 and it was like Tabula Rasa on steriods after doing crack!

    Lovely graphics & gameplay plus the effects during the city defense when buildings were randomly exploding were excellent. Definately a game to keep an eye on in my opinion.

    "Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience"

    I guess that's one way to put it, yeah, and that's basically my point.  Why shouldn't I be, and that's an annoying tactic on Red5's part, IMHO.  I have heard some terrible things though, so its a little more like curious to find out for myself.

    That is the primary complaint I've seen.  That it's light on content to an extreme.  Like they have the framework for a game there, but they've got a long way to go before it'll be fleshed out enough.  I know they've got a system for adding content dynamically, but I hope they aren't thinking that promises of future content will be good enough.  They'd be shooting themselves in the foot with a proverbial rocket launcher to make that mistake.

    Dude the way you keep replying in this thread makes you look kinda jelly that you cant play it. If you havent played the game yet then dont critize it because you dont know how the game works personally; i dont need to hear what other people complain about through your post. let them complain themself.

    What's with calling me "jelly" again?  Should I be ashamed of that?  I'm curious about the game, yeah, and not seeing much discussion about it one way or another, even though there's no NDA, right?

    This game is unbearably laggy. Not sure what's up with that.

    Please, make sure your computer meets the system requirements before complaining about lag.

    I'm pretty sure he is talking about network lag.

    Tons of people have issues with that, since latest huge update.

    Take it from some one who's been playing for awhile, this game is awful. There isnt much to discuss.

  • genclaymoregenclaymore Southfield, MIPosts: 43Member Common

    You forgot to put "IMO" in your post. Because it is a opinion after all.  Because not every one is gonna share the same opinion as you or any one else. Also people free to have their own opinions. I seen alot of people shoving there opinions down other people throat on this site.

     

    As for the game, I havent been lagging when I was playing, I just wish they enabled or have more stuff in.  I sure hope when ever it goes live, that alot more stuff is added in.
