I would like to see this game get the attention to game play it deserves. It really has a ton of potential. I played in the beta before the original doomed game went live. The game has glaring flaws and most of the dynamic missions were broken (you'd get pitted against 8 guys and they'd all have better gear, or the mission itself would be boring) But occasionally it would work well enough that you could see the original good intentions of the developers shine through. And in those moments it was very fun. It was GTA online with tons of little wars going on. It could be pretty thrilling to be in a car chase and drive through like 6 firefights before wrecking into a wall, ditching the car and getting pinned down in an ally and then heroically pushing your way out to make a drop objective. And then the game would screw it up by dumping 5 more guys on the enemy team. Or perhaps the game would lag or glitch and you'd be unable to complete an objective.

@Integral

Don't forget the part where everyone was using aimbots. That sure was a barrel of fun...

hahaha I don't think I ran into much of that in the beta. But I only played it a few times and logged probably a total of 4 hours before I gave up.

To clarify once again: the beta keys being sent out are not actually keys to access the beta and doesnt mean you have been successful in getting into beta, they are simply keys which enable you to apply for beta. If you get the email with a code, only then are you actually able to apply for it, until then you have only registered for it.

I predict hundreds of people getting the email with a beta code, getting excited and then raging that they cant find anywhere to download the client.

Seems a strange way of doing it to me (obviously done to drum up business for the game)

"GamersFirst pledges to keep your email address, phone number, credit card number, and other valuable bits of data both secret and safe..."

I'm all for account security, but...really??? Is this really worth talking about? Shouldn't this be an expected part of any company offering a service? (And, yes, I realize there are no guarantees, even with the most security-minded company...)

It makes me a little concerned that they need to stat this explicitly...have they had problems in the past with security?

@Drannos It has been insinuated that GamerFirst had sold account details, just rumours and GamersFirst trying to rid them of aa bad image they don't deserve (hopefuly).

Ah...understood! Thanks for the head's up!

(Though, in fairness, it doesn't matter the company or how much they promise account and information security...)

@Drannos; I thought this too but after having read the article, it wasnt like they were making a point of saying it would be secure (which obviously you would expect from everyone), it was just them confirming it as part of other features - perhaps the fact that Massively made a point of highlighting it gave it the wrong impression.
