Originally posted by Hobocop:1. Big learning curve2. Performance issues3. Lack of matchmaking/skill ranking to keep veteran players from walking all over complete newbies which leads to a lot of frustration for new playersHopefully they'll have a bunch of #2 sorted out in their patch later this week. #1 is an ongoing process that will probably never be solved entirely, and #3 is in the works as well since they just added a global stat/skill tracking system with Reinforced. Whether or not anything more concrete will come of it remains to be seen.

Originally posted by Rick Chambers:I'm a fresh player from free weekend, and the game is pretty frustrating. I don't know if it patched or if I'm just playing against vets but it's so frustrating. It's become alot harders to kill the basic aliens (alot more ammo) the ♥♥♥♥ing bird is so fast it's ridiculously stupid. Aliens just seems to get off increibly easy. You play as a marine buy some equipment when you die it's gone, you have to shell out for another. You die as an Alien, and oh well I'll just evolve again thanks. Marines get the shaft.
