It's an RTS. You basically select one of three types of forces to play for your side (IE, infantry, armour, air) and then you can call in certain troops and get the objectives.

I was a bit disappointed by the infantry combat. Terrain doesn't play that much of a role outside of forest area's and buildings, it's not as in-depth as company of heroes or anything.

You should give it a shot - I was surprised how well it ran on my machine and I'm getting pretty outdated, not much better than your setup.

I don't understand how you win. I know if u get all the points at once, usually games end with time left.

ran the benchmark at 1280x800, very low settings. average FPS was 25. not unplayable but it would spike to 15 a lot. pretty gay.

This game really sucks. Mass, move. Kill, die, repeat.

All the units are the same. Ughhhhh.

accurate assessment

it does get repetitive after few rounds. I wish they would redo the tactical aid system rework it so its not just huge arty air strike spam fest. Also make the smoke only visible to teammates so enemies can't see they're about to get blown to pieces.

That said, are these all the units that are gonna be in the finished games? I counted them all up and there are only 21 different units 5 of witch are just transports.

Also i find the infantry are surprisingly strong. a single infantry can take out 5 choppers, or a single anti-tank can take out 2-3 tanks depending on type. and thats not really counting forest bonus witch is practically god mode. Only drawback is their speed witch makes them slow to enemy support classes wich stay in their drop zones and just blast the entire map all game. Engineer's are probably the most underestimated unit there is right now. I don't think most people realize their explosives are controlled by remote. just place them on the capture points run and hide in a forest and wait for units to roll over and blow it (probably the most fun i have in this game).

I like the overall concept of the game, 1 person controls a different specialty but I don't like the way it came out. I didn't realize until i played it that games were gonna consist of up to 8 players on each team. It's like an rts that plays through pub's, people join and leave as they choose. Brings a more arcadey like feel to the game.

I played in the first beta and like some people have said its too repetitive. Probably because its arcadey. Build up, take a zone, get artilleried, rinse and repeat

its basically a giant elaborate rock paper scissors, with some twists. I overall enjoy it because you can join and leave so fast and it doesn't screw over your team.
