Fool Me Once...
I'm sorry, but I've been through the RS debacle in all it's glory once before, a debacle that continues to this day. Few if any of the issues the majority of the community has had have ever been resolved.

It's a no buy for me. I do hope the devs take a look at what could be, but I doubt they will.

Too late. Too sad.

The playerbase has plummeted from well over 15k+ to 1k - 800 actual players in little over 10 months. They (TW) were well apprised of the situation, and chose to focus their talents elsewhere. In a game where the majority of the server population is bots, I'd rather stick to my guns on this one, and I've always encouraged change.

I've learned my lesson. TW isn't going to get a cent from me on this one, and I encourage those interested in doing a bit of research.

+1

Ive played RS beta for 15 hours, and uninstalled it.
The maps seem nice at first sight, but most of them have a push-meatgrind layout where you cant flank properly. Tunneldesign if you look at it from above. Bound to be boring and frustrating.
Flamethower and knee mortar is meh after youve seen and used it for 3 times. Darkest Hour mod for RO1 did the mortar much, much better and rewarding.

None of the maps have the good elements from what made most RO1 maps so good...the non-linearity, the freedom, the distances which you could use to properly flank... nothing of that in RS maps.

RS will go 800 human, rest bot players soon.... its like RS was made for the wrong engine.


Sure, RS will sell loads, but thats all thanks to the niches like Banzai charging, japanese weapons and the flamethrower and the hollywood esque trailers to bring in the CoD-crowd that all favor 64 player servers to farm kills and meatgrind. The game isnt good in long term quality.

TWI never learned anything from RO2, that much is certain.

Even the humble bundle couldn't bring the community back,

It took what? A month before it went back to less than 1000 players?

No wonder,lack of guns and vehicles,mechanics that haven't been fixed or made better(than bipods),both the russians and germans play the same when they were very different in both equipment and combat doctrine.RS seems like a step in the right direction but for how long?After that what?Will they improve the game?Bring diversity?

Dont really care about RS, other than the huge update that comes with it that will include a butt ton of much needed fixes and new features for RO2.

I was there for the RO2 beta and this beta isn't anywhere near the mess Ro2 was.... In fact many additional fixes for RO2 are in the RS beta right now. There will be even more fixes for RO2 specifically when RS is released.

There's a full list of changes in the TW forums for RO2.

Besides a little bit of polish to some map elements and a few gameplay adjustments it's pretty solid.

But that's to be expected since most of the game play bugs and performance issues have already been addressed during RO2's lifetime & RS is just being added onto the existing framework.

In saying all of this, I'm still not sold on RS and still prefer RO2 as my go-to FPS.... That may change in time, but for now it's not blowing me out of the water.

Can't say I'm not honest :P
