Now I have been playing this Alpha for about 2 weeks and had some cracking nights playing it. But I do feel that it’s time throw my opinion on the game and get off my chest the serious issues this game has. Yes before I get people saying “it’s an alpha” I know it’s an alpha and yes I have played alphas before, so your comments are not wanted. Everything I will mention are pretty quick fixes that pretty much EVERYONE on a server will moan about, these are also clearly issues that should be rectified asap, I’m sure devs want to keep people playing the game…right?
So as an Alpha the developer seeks to provide a core game play experience and a testing environment for that particular platform, I get that. But there are some fundamental problems with this game that detract from the “core” gameplay experience.
- Farming - so a server wipe has just happened yet there are clans within an hour going through the map and killing everyone and everything that moves. Why? Because of farming. Sites are too easy to farm, loot respawns very quickly enabling large groups to farm these until they all have m4 blueprints etc. Lower the respawn rate of loot and increase the radiation speeds, these are currently not deterrents.
-GUNZ GUNZ GUNZ I get it, it’s fun shooting people but m4’s are ridiculous, overpowered and too easy to make. at least 3 players in a group have them they are practically invincible.
Kevlar- yeah kevlar same story, this game is going for a apocalyptic or similar yet body armour can be made very easily! with minimal resources.
Building items in another players base- locking the player out of it after they spend potentially hours gather resources to make it, almost soul destroying if you play on your own. Stairs should not be a craft able item if they are not being used in a building, too many players using them to gain entry through the roofs. Not fare when players are trying to build.
-**Hit detection(Melee Weapons). ** yeah I think you know already.
-Player identifies If a huge clan is coming and they want blood it would be nice to see there names before they get at least 2 meters away for fear of shooting your own team or a friendly neighbor!
These are just a few things, simple stuff that adds to the core experience, Stuff that really should be sorted at Alpha level. I say that because I have kind of given up on the game as these things are close to game breaking for me, and from what I’m seeing in game chats, it’s really getting on a lot of players wicks, But I’m sure the devs are working hard on the game and I respect what they are trying to achieve. Love to hear peoples thoughts. No flaming please.
