I'm getting it for sure - had a lot of fun in the beta. Feel free to add me: Tom#27167

I'm surprised more TF2 players don't like it more. I'm kinda bored with TF2 and this game has much the same vibe, but fresh.

Though I'm not sure how long it will stay fun if all it has is solo-queue and team queue (and competitive). I.e. no community servers, which are what kept me playing TF2 for nearly a decade.

Hey Tom, I have added you on battle.net and if we have room i'll invite you (Regs have to take priority tho hope you understand Very Happy .)

I agree with you that lack of community servers could affect the game in the long run, though with only 12 player servers it would hardly be much of a community Confused

A community server could have, say, 36 slots (or however many) and just mix the 6v6 teams up each round. That'd work well I think. Maybe they'll allow custom servers in time, who knows.

Yeah I've got it on pre-order.
The beta was pretty fun so I thought it was worth a punt, I'll never leave TF2 for long though.

Not sure I would want to just sit and watch other people playing for 10 mins at a time.

Sure Heimerdinger, I should have put it in my post.

I'm Topher4636#2498, sorry about all the numbers, when I created that account I didn't know they'd stick a load of numbers on the end anyways, I may change it at some point to simplify.

I've had problems trying to add people before on battlenet so feel free to message me here or on steam and ask for my email address if needed.

I'll be buying it on Friday (pay day)

HTE#21165

Not sure how much I'll play of it, TF2 is a little stale at the moment and matchmaking has moved back onto Valve time.

tbh, it's only a stop gap until BF1 in the Autumn.

Not usually a fan of playing MP games when they are just released as you have to go through that teething period of playing with people who are still learning it, but I haven't played any games this year and am in the mood for something new so picked this up.

If anyone wants to add me, it's Precizion#2435

Well game all purchased but it kept crashing, GPU error.  Much googling ensued and there is no silver bullet fix, re-installed windows from scratch, still no good, also lost all my TF2 configs due to installing Windows on the wrong disk.  Bugger.

Well I've now brought a new GPU, gtx 960 4gb, it'll be here on Wednesday.

Haytch, yikes that really sucks, I feel your pain.

Were you running AMD or Nvidia before ordering the new card?
I've had no problem on my Nvidia card and the same goes for my girlfriend running GTX 950. Hope you get it sorted soon.

It's a NVIDIA GTS 550ti topher, it was due for an upgrade sooner or later, was planning to upgrade for BF1 in the autumn anyway.

The main bad thing is the wife will now want her PC upgraded.

It's enjoyable, the hard counters are not as obvious as compared to playing TF2.  It seems to me it's more the hero make up of your team is more of a counter rather than tactics, although that could be more due to the early stage of the game meta compared to TF2's well developed meta.

I need to spend tomorrow's pending hangover on a youtube odyssey learning the characters.
