    So I've been able to make it to the cutscene right after character creation. Every time I get to the loading screen after that I time out. I'm getting a message saying the servers aren't available, but the official twitter account says the PC servers should be good to go. Whooo beta!!

    Friend of mine has the exact same thing.

    Oh, and a helpful PSA: to quit the game, to to a menu (press L or something), then hold Space to get a command ring, and logging out is under Settings.

    Getting into the game is a maze of confusion! Getting out is even harder.

    I am at work :( I will watch Erik play and silently curse you and hope your life is interesting.

    We'll see how much I actually play this weekend. I've done the previous two beta weekends as well as being in the alpha, I don't think I can be arsed doing it all over again what with launch being just over a week away.

    Finally got in. Just finished the intro mission. If anybody feels like grouping up to shoot things then send Agran an invite. Meanwhile I'm going to try to figure out how to get my very own four wheeler.

    They've changed it, you get it after a few missions now.

    Is the invite system broken? Can't find my buddy when searching, /invite doesn't work either.

  • mojojoeomojojoeo A block off the park, living the dream.Registered User regular
    I'm so no going to get invited today a this point. Doh

    Duh, we were on different regions. So yeah, characters aren't global, they're saved per region, just like in Rift.

    I'm making a clan: We Are Nice Guys.

    Message Holiday (account buckarooholiday) for an invite, I guess. Let's see how it works.

    This is a very rad game. The shooting feels nice, it all seems quite polished and there's a bunch of stuff to do and shoot.

    Cover is important, and there is plenty of it. Until Hellbugs.

    Then you shotgun and run.

    Grant Bowler is on their stream now. He's the main dude in the show, and he's pretty funny.

    Oh. I have four beta keys from my Steam preorder.

  • EchoEcho ski-bap ba-dapModerator mod
    Also, you guys need to try the "co-op maps". That's the dungeon equivalents.

  • DarkewolfeDarkewolfe Registered User regular
    @Echo Since you still seem so into this, I would like to try it. If you can spare a beta key, I'd like to try it. If it's a GOOD FPS MMO, I'd be down.

    What is this I don't even.
  • EchoEcho ski-bap ba-dapModerator mod
    PM me your email.

  • Man of the WavesMan of the Waves Registered User regular
    I logged out and came back after an hour or so and the clan I created was gone.

    I'll be back later and we can try to form a clan, if anyone is interested.

    Anyone else randomly get 'Bits'? I got a bunch and bought an outfit and a truck.

    There's several different forms of currency for some reason.

    Send Corehealer a friend request if you wanna play with me, I'll be hopping on and off tonight.

    I also sent one to Holiday as well, Man of the Waves.

    Bits is the cash shop monies. Scrip(why not call it scrap?) is the general currency. There's also another one, the green one, which is for so far stuff like the 'keys' that let you buy loot chests.

    The loot chest thing is a neat idea, BUT I wish they existed here and there out in the world. I thought they would with how the ammo boxes opened up, but sadly they don't seem to exist.

    Scrip is just a word for substitute currency.


    The game world does feel a bit barren without resource nodes.

  • mojojoeomojojoeo A block off the park, living the dream.Registered User regular
    pretty solid game. I'm enjoying this a lot.

    Add Mojojoeo if you are on.

    I am liking this a lot so far.

  • CorriganXCorriganX Registered User regular
    You have to accept a friend request to be on the list btw, so if you don't instantly get my friend stuff make sure to let me know that you friended me so I can accept. The ui is a bit unintuitive at the start.

    Okay, the clan is up and running, just message any of the names posted above for an invite.

    I'll soak you in my metals.

    Alt - dodge roll. There's no limit. If you get bio'd you can just roll away. It's slowed too but much faster than walking.

    To apply mods click the disassembly tab and pop in a gun... You can choose to ad a mod or disassemble it From there. Higher quality means more mod slots- with the ability to purchase slots with ark resources as well. An best of all they show up in game on the gun.... Pretty cool.

    Every thing you do has an experience bar. Each gun. Each vehicle. More you use it the harder it hits/ faster it goes.

    Having fun with this, alternating between it and Neverwinter. Will be on tomorrow afternoon/evening sometime.

    Anyone figured out how to talk in group or guild chat? I couldn't manage it and eventually lost my text output completely.

    So that was a bummer.

    On the other hand, the game is fun as all hell. I'm really enjoying it. I picked Cloak to serve as a get out of jail free card, and its working pretty admirably.

    Combat, for me, goes along the lines of SHOTGUN SHOTGUN SHOTGUN GRENADE DAKKA DAKKA DAKKA DAKKA -oh sweet mother of mercy I'm being shot full of holes- CLOAK regen time. ...SHOTGUN SHOTGUN SHOTGUN DAKKA DAKKA DAKKA.

    With some running and screaming and hiding behind crates and walls thrown in somewhere. I got a shield that regens after 2.5 seconds, so I'm pretty okay to be ducking in and out of fire, but some guys really do have a rough time with the starter 6 second shield. The game is not all that terribly easy if you decide to approach combat the wrong way. You can get swarmed and ripped to shreds if you're not careful.


    I love the shotguns because they send people careening off into the distance. Flying ragdolls please me.

    Basil on
