I won't be returning to this game.
I was initially interested in Star Conflict, due to TotalBiscuit's video, of course, and the urgings of my clan-mates from another game to try it out.
Needless to say, I won't be returning.
I've played a similar game to this on steam called Moon Breakers, and while it is considerably less pretty and less customizable, at least in that game I have a fighting chance, don't get ganged up on and killed in my crap little freebie fighter, and don't have to wait through the intolerably long respawn times to get back into the fight, only to be killed horrendously once again.
I gave this game a fair shake, and played it to maximum frustration several times.
When I play or purchase a game, I have a scale of 1 to 10 of frustration vs. overall enjoyment of it. I would rate Star Conflict a 3. Even DOTA 2, with it's toxic player base and steep learning curve, I'd give a 4 or 4.5.
I'll be uninstalling it after I finish this post.
