Early Access Review
As almost any negative review is only negative because of the matchmaking (and the person who wrote that review dying constantly), I'm gonna say a little things about that:
They've fixed the matchmaking and even improved it several times. There was just one problem everybody ignored:
Back in Closed Beta the matchmaking could not function properly, as there were not enough players to filter from!
But now in Open Beta you can finally see how the matchmaking works. Everytime I play in a party with several other people, we get split up, because the enemy team would lose directly. Also, the more "good" people I have in my party, the longer it takes now to find a match, so the matchmaking is really working in the background.
Now my review about this game:
It's quite competitive, so it happens that you lose against people you are playing against, but the most important thing to note is that even though this game is f2p, it is definetly not p2w.
In this game it's not so much about your weapons or skills, as the basic skills can be damn good, if used correctly.
It's mainly about having a good teamplay, and voicechat is not that much required for that.
Also what I experienced as well, while I introduced some friends of mine to this game, while I was already playing with highlevel players:
You get better over time!
This game has no major flaws, it's just not as casual as people would expect it to be on the normal TDM server.
While in other games as soon as you leave the "Beginner"-area you lose against p2w players, in this game you are challenged by players, whose only advantage is that they've played more hours in this game than you.
