1st beta was unplayable. Hopefully this one works. Game should really be delayed.

Hopefully there is a huge difference between the first test and this one... I can't see this game doing any good if it's even close to the last test..

There were issues with matchmaking. It worked good the last few days of the test...

This. First few days I could never connect, then it just started working, albeit slow as sin. I hope I get another round at this as I had fun with the beta.

The last beta worked fine. What are you guys talking about?

I was wondering the same.Were there major problems?

Many people had endless connection issues, the AI is literally the worst AI I've ever seen, the time in between rounds was longer than the actual rounds sometimes, the gameplay has a lot of jank, the game ran at 30fps in Terrorist Hunt or another mode.

I feel like i played a different game :/
I played on PC, solid 60 fps on all modes.
Great terrorist AI too. If you played on a lower difficulty they weren't great though.

First beta was pretty good most of the time for me you're over dramatizing it. Connection issues are why beta's are started to begin with and should be expected.

I had a good time with the beta. That party/invite system needed a lot of work though as it was a crapshoot if my buds and I would actually get to play a VS. game together.


And nerf the goddamn shields. People acting like Spartans and shit made them super annoying.

Worst AI? And the devs said they ran that 30fps because of complex AI calculations.

Yes to all of this.

The worst part is the time between rounds. You dont respawn. When the round begins there is a decent chunk of time where you arent in contact with the other team because of the breaching and planning mechanics. And when the round ends there is another chunk of time where you just wait and pick a character. Way too much downtime. I understand that the first two are necessary and part of the game but they really need to cut down on the third part hard.

o_O This blows my mind. The AI is terrible. There are times when (even on the highest difficulty) it wont even react to you shooting it, and thats one of the most basic things it needs to do. What the hell kind of calculations are they doing?
