Early Access Review
This game could be so great if Psyonix would focus on fixing some bugs instead of adding things like daily reward spins (that give you sweet things like useless name tags for your gear and coupons for purchasing their real money currency) and random locked chest rewards that you have to pay cash to open. Seriously, they ♥♥♥♥ed around for two weeks while the game was suffering from a bug that allowed dead players to instantly respawn instead of waiting the usual 10 seconds. But when that daily spin gave out a free skin to most people, well... patched faster than you can say "hotfix".
Overall, the game play is solid and highly enjoyable with a friend or two, but painfully frustrating with idiot team mates. Small chance of that happening, though, because the player base has dropped by over 50% in the last month or so. That's probably why there's so many people complaining about bad matchmaking, honestly. It used to be pretty good after a patch earlier this year to improve the MMR, but with barely 800 people online, you get who you get and most of those guys are the hardcore players so newbies get wrecked.
All in all, I'd say the game is spiraling downward into the abyss of poorly managed F2P games, soon to be forgotten. I recommend avoiding it so you don't get attached right as it's about to die.
