I have to say that today they did two updates and seemingly fixed some issues,so they are trying.There is a LOT going on in the game however that needs addressing because i feel they might have already lost a lot of players.From day1 there SHOULD have been a few official servers to keep everyone happy,as claims were owned up very quickly.Pvp is just poorly done.The noob starting experience needs to be about 10x better.Now to give them some credit,they added a 10 paragraph popup that happens to give noobs hints.Players SHOULD be able to craft anything anywhere in the safe zones,they simply decay very quickly after the players leave for the first time.They did this with the free Sloop they added,it decays and sinks in a matter of hours.There are too many creatures spawning in some areas and the AI is awful with tons of mobs trying to run through a tree or stuck running up against a rock wall.Aggro is done really bad,seems like proximity then the creatures move in very fast and the movement is very glitchy.Flags all over the place in the water,idk why i assume something to do with taking control of any treasure in the water.None the less all those flags just look silly out there in the middle of the ocean bobbing on kegs.Fishing needs work,the menus need work vitamin depletion is too fast,weather changes too fast from like 36 to -3 in seconds,crossing over zones is hitchy and again the biome is very abrupt to the point it looks fake.It is really tough for new players to understand what to unlock or how to unlock some ideas.I could go on and on,it is simply an extremely rushed product that will likely have few players left by time they get the game is ship shape order.
Game optimization is disaster. Soooo many people with low/off settings and poor fps
Servers are mess ping from 60 to 115, in rare cases 255.
Cheats/exploits lol, i can talk about this at least 1 hour, from resources wallhack, dumping, aimbot where you headshot alfas each time from 200m but they enabled anti cheat, finnaly^^ Now is this fair? I mean so many people cheated so far, specially resources and aflas for levels, and now they have huge basses, got galleon before everyone, make their company name on server, got more company members because of what? They cheated? Look chinese, they used their max member company 500, and every time they go to raid they invite everyone they raided to their company which would crash their game, and this is EA.. this is EEEEEEEA.
Gameplay system is omg.... and i mean real gameplay, you cant leave company, if you leave everything you builded is not yours, so you can be months in company and with 1 single click leave/kick and everything YOU made including basses, ship which includes all items you have are lost FOREVER !
Guild Permissions are also bad, i mean am not in that kind of company thank god where leader wont give me permission example am making some structures and i cant demolish it but i read some people are having real issues there, they collect resources for walls, floors, stairs, gates etc etc 1 single mistake and they need to wait officer or leader to come and demolish that wall, YOUR WALL !!! WOW, just WOW !
Now connect this with gameplay system i described above, they increased gate resources, so you need to gather more, reduced pistol dmg, so now you need to spend skills and more resources making new rifle and ofc new bullets which takes time. I mean what this game is? Remindes me of my sister playing Sims 4, 90% of her gameplay is building houses^^ And ofc as i said before, more stupid updates, more time to waste, 1 click leave company or get kicked and you lost EVERYTHING. So imagine guy staying in guild for months and in 1 click he loose everything he was doing these months? I mean ofc sometimes that guy will be raided by other enemy company/alliance but he wont loose all things, he will lose only some.
Had a great time in our 50 person company for the last 2 weeks.
Constant guild battles.
Over 100 hours of entertainment for $30.
Got my moneys worth already.
Yes it is rough, but there is fun to be had if you persist.
Have about 10 hours in and only dealt with one major bug so far and I am easily getting 60+ FPS with everything maxed out at 1440p (1080ti/i7). Not sure why this game gets so much hate (oh wait internet in 2019) but it does not deserve it and will have a large player base.
If everyone acts like this when a new game gets released how can we ever expect to get another major AAA western MMO. This Early Access release has been fine and the game is very playable and enjoyable.

I have 206 hours and its a crap shoot. Its a punishing game, I have gotten better at rebuilding from freeport only because I have done it a million times now. And it doesnt help that when you actually try to help some people they still grief you.
I am impressed that they finally created a world where many servers worth of people can play together compared to their ark technology. Thousands can indeed play online without too much trouble when only 100 could with ark.
