Here is why I didn't like the game

My two cents, as it's called.

1. No training, simply jump into the first available game
PRO's: I WANT TO PLAY NOW! THIS IS GREAT!
CON's: What the hell is this, what are the controls? What is my objective? How to I get better equipment?

2. Equipment system
PRO's: Allows the player to get better equipment and have a better chance of beating the opponent, and looking l33t while doing so.
CON's: Players need to earn "real money" by playing a lot. You could use the "fake money" and rent stuff for a certain period of time. No way you could earn your stuff, we don't want that, would we?

3. Veichles
PRO's: They look sweet.
CON's: You can't use them.

Even trying the game without high expectations will make kittens kill themselves. I am not playing this game again till the equipment system improves.

Feel free to add more points to the list.

You forgot: Bad animation, graphics, netcode non-existing, guns that sounds like little plastic toys or something, camera angle extraordinair (in a bad way), unintuitive gui, etc. etc.

I tried to like it, but currently it's a joke even in "Beta". Well I'm outa here.

Under the ranks it looks by level 18 (3-4 days of playing on and off) a person have about 10k for a permanent gun of their choice and have some extra. Wouldn't take much play time to get esp if the rewards keep getting higher and higher. It sucks for people that want instant gratification but compared to the other f2p shooters like this its much more forgiving.

Here's the deal-breaker for me: I can't play the game as a normal user; I have to log in as the administrator to run the startup program. The game isn't even in the "program files" folder where you need admin access. That's auto-uninstall for me.

It's a glorified cash shop with a grinding mechanism. South Korea has been churning out the exact same crappy shooters for a decade now.

I don't like the lack of a cover system in 3rd person games. I mean hell we can look around corners, why not.

The Pay to Win, renting is dumb if I am only gonna play once a week

The camera, I don't feel its fixed in the right position

Needs sprays

You end up sitting and watching the map for where the enemies are and where they are looking, while your character is staring into the wall, having you in cover as you look around every corner. This does not really encourage any kind of good gameplay.

Not to mention that the radar will always show enemies that are close to you... it's impossible to sneak up on an enemy. People will camp in dark corners and wait for others to pop up on their radar.. then kill them, and go back to camping.

It was a nice idea... but the game will fail miserably without a lot of changes.

I joined a game, and saw this

http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/54...820100647B6E6/

http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/54...9138949D972E8/

http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/54...628FDCF4EF6A9/

http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/54...57C7F767AF7F8/

promptly exited and uninstalled. Rather than even trouble shoot, I will just go back to playing BC2.

I don't doubt it, and I could probably get it to work as well. My point was that is not a good first impression a F2P game should have.

It's called "Open Beta" for a reason. Atleast that's what the launcher says. But the game is still crap.

Don't just pound "Next" when you install games. Problem solved~

And the fact that the game is placed in Steams "Common" folder, not randomly in "Program Files".

If you two were talking about the Steam version.. *facepalm*
If you haven't noticed, the "Steam 'Common' folder" is located within the 'Program Files' folder.
...\Program Files\Steam\Steamapps\Common\

And Steam installs almost every single game inside that folder.
Except some of the games that run on the Source Engine.
