It seems that when they put out a new patch, rather than let you go over the top, it downloads the entire thing again....

Anyone up for some 4-man co-op maps tonight (Friday 5th April)?

Also, having read a bit of the forums and a few of the reviews out there, it might be a good idea to cover what the game is and is not at this stage to avoid confusion.

It's a third person console style shooter. The UI is just sucky, changing loadouts on the fly can get you killed and a lot of stuff is not explained very well. Loot is plentiful but makes little difference and much of your gear quality will rest in the hands of the random number generator. Brune reports PvP to be populated with bunny hopping shotgunners too.

I don't exactly consider it an MMO in the traditional sense. The only time you'll see more than a handful of other players is during the Arkfall events where there may be 50+ I think I've seen. There are times it will feel like a single player game too but then a large crystal falls out of the sky and players come crawling out of the woodwork.

It is not really an RPG either and a player with an Ego of 500 is only moderately more powerful than a newbie. Think of it in PS1 terms; a veteran with a new BR4 and a Gauss rifle is still a force to be reckoned with by a BR20.

It has a dynamic grouping system that means no one is stealing your kill or costing you loot. If they are in the same area and doing the same stuff the mobs scale appropriately so it's all good. It does mean if you turn up at the closing stages of an event you may complete a quest without doing much or experiencing the content as it was intended but the events are good fun and can be done over again after a short delay. We have done the farm defence one three times now I think and I'd happily do it again.

Some of the content is actually harder in a small group; if you get separated you'll be facing tougher mobs by yourself. The game can be refreshingly hard in places without the frustration you would normally expect from that. And if you ever need help there is a 'go to friend' option so sing out on TS and reinforcements can arrive in short order. Of course the mobs you having trouble with will scale up too, but why die alone eh?

It's not very complex and given the console feel and the lack of any working chat and a bitch of a UI I should hate it but it works despite the flaws

EGO levels don't really matter m8, if you can aim and manoeuvre you'll do fine kiddo

I'm curious to know whether everybody has to have the co-op mission unlocked or your fine and dandy joining with a friend who has it unlocked.

I played for a hour or so today. It is .... quite .... well it is ok I suppose. Nothing ground breaking. Kind of like Tabla Rasa but not as good with a distinct theme park MMO style gameplay. I am hoping it improves and the endless missions are just an introduction to the wider game.

So far so meh.

Not bad though. Just makes me want to play PlanetSide though !
