Worth buying right now?
Hey guys, i've been looking at this title a few times but I can't make up my mind. i've watched a couple of vids on youtube. some reviewers hate it, some love it. The fact that they have a lot of implementing to do yet doesn't really bother me ( DayZ player ftw 8D We love our buggy alpha code.. )

I'm just wondering about gameplay. Fluid? Or way too many buttons? ( MMO style where you need 90% of your freakin keyboard to press abilities) For something that fast paced I don't really expect to use a gazillion skills.

SO! Please leave your impressions. Is it worth the 19 euro?

I personally enjoy it and feel like my money was worth it. As for the buttons there is 7 skills, with one being basic attack. They are set to Mouse 1 for basic attack, F, E, R, T, G, V, B, but I have mine set to both the letter keys and number keys on keyboard. I sometimes find I'm hitting wrong buttons, but thats probably just me getting used to the game.

The game is good for the pure combat and gameplay... Right now the only things in game that feel a bit much is the balance of the shaman and warden *get them together and the team is unkillable* but that's being addressed next patch from what they said on the official forums. The game is bare bones right now with only quick play which joins on a random mode for 1 of 3 maps but they are supposed to be enabling a few other modes and adding a new map+class in the near future *how near idk and I'm not going to claim to know*

If you want my honest opinion... I think it's worth it right now.... But if you're still on the fence about it I suggest looking for a friend who wants it as well and going 1/2s on it so that it's technicly only 10 bucks since it's 2 for 1 atm. Also swing by the official forums and read around to see the stuff that they have planned.... I know they have like 12 classes planned total *5 out 7 coming* and plan to add multiple maps in the future... If they get the content out in a resonable amount of time I see this game lasting quiet awhile... It's got a mix of wsg from wow mixed with quake....

Anyway that's my 2 cents.

solid fluid gameplay, ~8 abilities per class so rather simple hotkeys. no leveling, everyones on the same slate, so more skill based pvp than anything. learning curve had me up to pace playing well online in about 2hrs

awesome game in my opinion, worth the dollars (errr euro) also very beneficial and fun to play with friends!

You do know that game was a scam right? Why are you comparing a game being worked on to a scam?

That's WarZ, brocookie. DayZ is the Arma 2 mod.

Very worth buying, IMO.

If you like WoW pvp, and the idea of not having to grind of pvp gear. If you like the idea of logging in and not having to worry about leveling to compete in pvp. Then this is the game you need to buy! Plus you get a free copy for a buddy... I mean you can't beat that!

Worth buying IMO. Keys can be remapped and doesn't take long for you to get use to.

My personal advice would be wait out until they bring the new content and then buy it... only advantage buying it now is the 2 for 1.. I bought this game and played enough to make me wait for the full content.. its abit broken atm... imo

That was WarZ and it isn't a scam. That guy made it up. And you're gullible for believing it.

As for Forge I think it's pretty fun. They could optimize it a little better but aside from that it seems worth it. I've always wanted a game like this ever since Rakion became crap all those years ago.

Its worth it.

The game is very well made, gameplay-wise, everything fitting it perfectly! There aren't too many buttons, yet the game takes a lot of time to master. You get the hang of it pretty fast, probably an hour is enough to learn the spells and use them well enough. It's a great game, but definetly needs some... implementations. Without some decent add-ons, the game will get stale ...

WarZ isn't a scam, it's an alpha. Because they're selling an alpha doesn't mean it's fake.
