Thinking About Trying Forge? Read This.
Thinking about trying Forge Online but don't know what to expect? I was in this same predicament nearly two weeks ago over this game. After being unable to find solid game play on YouTube or much background information on the game itself, I decided to just give it a go and download it. So, if your thinking about downloading this, DO IT. I cannot emphasize on how well the developers did on this game. It's developed for the true PvP die-hards who just want to grind and gank other players, and it's graphic's are downright gorgeous. The play style is a little different as in not being able to target lock which does mean it requires skill for kills, but once you get the hang of it it is a hell of a game. All classes have their pro's and con's, and any class can be the best depending on how well you play it. Essentially this game is more for the advanced player who has PvP experience as it's not just a lock and button mash styled play. You can do things such as get on top of roofs and lock down targets from above, to CC'ing the assassins for your pyro's and pathfinders to finish off. I will say again, this game is not for the new PvPers, but if you enjoy PvP and that's what your main goal is on a game, I STRONGLY recommend this very unique game. The only downside I would say it has is the matchmaking. With a lot of ragers (usually people who can't control their characters), it auto balances teams every time someone leaves. In this aspect, if your on the winning team and get auto balanced it sometimes sucks, but other than this minor problem this game is flawless. I praise the creators and hope to be a long term vet. Check it out if you think you can PK well.

That's awesome! Yeah honestly it's a very well developed PvP based MMO. Thanks for the feedback!

So is the matchmaking like level 1-10, 11-50?

the matchmaking is terribad, I don't know how exactly it works but it usually just puts you in an empty server, the trick is to use the steam server browser to find one manually. at least until the inevitable matchmaking overhaul (which I will be beyond surprised if it never happens)

In this next weeks patch we are improving the matchmaking to make sure players get into a game with other players.

Thanks Remztan for your comment. I've been out of town the last few months but now that I'm back I hope to start playing Forge again! Still love the game and stand by my entire original post.

Last time I tried this game all servers were empty, this has changed so? Also seems this forums' dead or something, almost no post activity.

Edit: I just downloaded it, servers are empty, what a waste.

Which region did you try? I just checked now and you should have been able to get onto a 6v6 game in the US or a 5v5 game in Europe.

I clicked on play, europe selected server and game's empty, just me.

Since the last patch our population has been much better. We're hoping to get onto the front page of steam and let people know about FORGE.

will try it because of the thread.

Asbak, that's great to hear! How did you like it?

Looking at our July numbers the population is still on the rise!

In the next patch we have fixes for the Tinker M1, Ranked Arena, the main menu, and will introduce Ranked Arena Seasons with an ELO reset.

The game seems quite...dead in europe. Tried all 3 available modes (deathmatch, capture the relic, and random) and all 3 lead me to the same server with 2 whole people playing on it. The game might be worth it in the US, but not for me in Europe I'm afraid.

Either that or the matchmaking/queue is really terrible, even now after the game came out about a year and 9 months ago...
