    You are far too apologetic for the sad state of the servers.

    I'm not even talking about server drops. I'm talking about the game simply not recording what you did.

    It's an early access game, this is to be expected. Also everyone is dealing with it.

    Cool game but I suck at it big time is first contact PVP or just hunting NPCs? I think I'll have my Steam friend to help me out before I'm down to zero cash.

    This game loads really slow even on a SSD due the the syncing of the game Warface is the same way takes alot of time to sync in.

    Extracted for the first time finally got some more Health bars it takes like 10 minutes for a game to start something is buggy. Still haven't killed a Boss...Originally this game was suppose to be a Left for Dead clone called Horrors if the Guilded Age.

    Fought the Butcher didn't kill him but Killed the spiders collecting other peoples bounties is evil unless they killed them already.
    I was down to 6 cash but after two matches I'm back up to 700 took me a while to get used to the game I'm going to switch Shift close up aim to my side mouse buttons.

    Man this game is a griefer camper simulator but instead of respawning you are dead for good.
    People going all Call of Duty in this game they should have a single player mode but that would take out the fun.
    Still in early access anything can change.

    Still loving it despite not getting a boss kill yet. Extracting is the name of the game for progression.

    I would LOVE some kind of a co-op story mode, or an endless type mode without the PvP, just you and a friend creeping around the swamp

    I guess people camp the clue and boss spots with long rifles reap the gold and bounties I know that is what we did but we didn't CAMP =) This game gives you the same feeling as Dark souls PvP.

    This game is still on top of my list for Fun Factor and originality good looking as well servers are hit and miss when I play population went way down which is a shame but maybe if they have a server browser that would be cool but a death trap at the same time.

    I'd like to get this game ..been watching twitch feeds of different guys.. but I'm not really setup to do co-op(no mic) and would probably just go it solo if I did get it...:(

    I really hope this game comes along. After spending 80% of the time sitting in menus not able to load in, or crashing, I'm gonna let it simmer a bit.

    Just curious - anyone playing this with a gamepad? Is it feasible to play that way or are mice aimers going to annihilate you? These days I just can't bring myself to play with KB/M unless I have to.

    The camping / griefing absolutely ruins the game for me and my buddies. We keep getting sniped / jumped and there is literally NO way of knowing if anyone is near you. It's incredibly frustrating to waste a half hour on this garbage when we could be playing something more fun and rewarding.

    Is there a benefit to going after the bounty and trying to extract - as opposed to letting someone else do the hard work?

    As far as I can determine your first 3-5 matches with a new hunter should be spent working your way towards the nearest extraction, killing all the zombies and getting all the clues you can along the way... But entirely foregoing the bounty in favor of surviving long enough to level up a few times so your hunter has something that vaguely resembles a chance in hell when you do finally encounter someone else or take on a bounty.

    No, actually it is really great looking. Livestreams tend to degrade game visuals as that is the nature of the beast. The game is really atmospheric and fun. I die way too often though.

    I was talking about the game itself. Crappy looking 'monsters' that keep flooding at you. Repetitive and boring, I wouldn't touch that game with a yard long stick. But then again most Crytek games are the same scripted shit.

    Game is incredible looking, and the gameplay kicks ass once you get past the learning curve IMO.

    But you haven't actually played it, right? Just watched it for 10 seconds?

    This game is mostly audio, it's very easy to hear where people are.

    Yeah I grouped with this guy on Steam he told me to connect to Steam's audio system so they can't hear you in game not sure if that works or not.

    Audio is SO important. It is half the game.

    Yeah, we use discord for comms. In the game, just like opponents, once you get far enough from your teammate, you can't hear him.

    I've hated every Crytek game so far and yes, I grew a major dislike in the first 10 seconds of the stream. It just screams boring scripted enemies and griiiind.

    Yep that game stands for everything I don't like in a game. Playing against scripted enemies in a scripted game.

    LOL that was possibly the dumbest comment I've seen you make so far. Having a personal preference is not ignorant. I could as well laugh at you for being so excited about a product I consider boring due to having scripted repetitive actions and no human adversaries. But I didn't.
