So few playing game

Postby prophet » Mon 12 Mar 2012 21:20

I know the game has just been released, am I right in saying that it isnt avaliable to buy in stores on CD and that you can only buy it on download.

Im from UK, but not currently there, but is the game being advertised and is it going to be released on CD?

As it is the people playing the game every day is only peaking at 1700 ish and to me that is shockngly low for such a game.

Im only slightly concerned that after buying this game and enjoying it as I do that it wont get that manby players buying it.

Your thoughts?

Not on CD in the UK, i very nearly never got this game because of that. However, after watching some videos on youtube and checking the forums, i took the gamble and got it from Steam. Good choice too, i love it.

You are right - the player numbers are very low for a new game, and the future doesn't look bright. You can buy the game here for £12.99 in the UK :

That is probably a realistic price for it. I would not recommend paying the £29.99 that Steam is trying to charge.

Things that killed this game, just like RUSE

1) not firendly to new players, new players come in get stomped and leave
2) Ranked gone wrong, level 1's getting ranked with 20's
3) Arty and Rockets turn many players away me included
4) AI skirmish broken or missing (half the time the AI does not do anything in battle and players have no ability to take on multiple AI opponents).
5) Where is the map editor, game will be dead before it's even released
5) Cheating and the lack of any action to prevent it

What a shame, had potential just like RUSE

Edit - Correction on number 5 : Game won't be dead it will be the same 50 players playing all the time. Everyone else is leaving :(

And just after the first cheaters appeared Eugen reacted and implemented an anti-cheat system.

I'll tell you what's warding off a lot of people from this game; threads like this. People come on forums quite often to get "feel" for the game before buying it, and when they read threads like this they go, "oh gross, I don't want to waste my money on this game if people are already saying it's dead."

Do the community a favor and stop posting such drivel on here. The game is good, but it needs some work. Stop with all this "community dead?" nonsense.

Hardly true. Sorry but there are a lot more complex games out there. The only thing which is lacking is a better tutorial. Beyond that, this game is fairly classic.

5) Where is the map editor, game will be dead before it's even released


Vavle didn't not release the SDK nor Worldcraft for Half-Life 1 before a fairly long time and it didn't stopped this FPS to be one of the most popular during a long period. Anyway, it can be repaired relativly quickly. You should post that as a suggestion instead of bashing the game.
