What happened? What was so bad about this game that everyone avoided it like the plague? Is it the price point? Was it the game?

I don't see how this game tanked so hard in a week where nothing big was releasing.

PUBG happened, and there's just so many other good games out ATM.

competitive FPS is just a really tough genre to make inroads in right now I think.

What happened was bad marketing along with a bunch of other things. Biggest is probably being beaten to the market by Overwatch I guess. Can't really pinpoint this game's problems with just one thing

Nothing. The game is great. My only Platinum trophy of this year.

People just had other stuff to play, I guess.

I think one reason among many would be the poisonous buzz of how how little it was selling then reinforced others to not buy it.

a huge reason i didn't buy this game is cliff b. id probably enjoy it but the market is saturated and i don't want to give my money to a rich cocky blowhard. having him out trying to promote the game = drakenothanks.gif even if it's largely his to promote

it should've been f2p from the start as well, then i would've jumped in (and probably spent some money once invested)

Sad stuff. Forget the Cliffy B aspect, it's been well documented. But failures like this drive good developers into other tech fields and out of gaming. Hope the fallout at the studio isn't too rough

What would be the motivation for anyone to play it?

Iíve not heard my friends talk about it. Iíve not seen any marketing for it. It has not popped up in any of my regular YouTube subs. The only thing Iíve heard about this game is how badly itís doing. If my experience is a common one, that game is dead.

No one wanted it.

In a glut of competitive fantastical shooters, it's was pretty bland and came to market super late.

Honestly I played the beta and thought it was a confusing mess. Played two rounds and it was enough for me to make a decision to never play it again.

What does it do better than other games on the market? From the chance I got to play it, the answer was basically nothing. The zero G thing is a neat gimmick but that can't carry a game.

Ha, someone actually remembers that game. Hello new friend.

Nah, my brother and I were thinking about it but there are too many games to play to get sucked into it. Fun little game, though.

That was not the point, I believe. Action multiplayer games are subject to the law of playerbase gravity. You go big or you get sucked in.
