Anyone play? I played through most of the bate its now live. Its free to play and the only MMOFPS I know of. I play TR (red guys) on the east water something server. I have an outfit who is full of a lot of ex military so we do heavily tactics based operations from time to time. That said Id love to play with some of the swarmyz giggity. It on steam at the very least and you should check it out, the only draw back I have seen is it needs a pretty good rig to run well.

As soon as they fix their uninstall bug, I'll get back into it.

Ok so at the end of January there is going to be a update that should be helping people with lower end computers.

Patch Notes so far:

General performance increases, particularly for lower end GPUs
Experience (XP) system enhancements:
Dynamic XP system for player kills, players who have more kills on their current life are worth more XP. Freshly spawned players will be worth a fraction of the current kill reward.
Partial damage XP for dealing damage to vehicles that you don't end up killing
Population XP / Resource bonus moved over to continent population instead of global
Better display of XP sources for things like defensive bonuses & population bonuses
Rebalancing of XP rewards to help support tasks
Server transfer token available in Depot
UI changes to emphasize score per minute as a primary metric of player comparison
Sortable columns on outfit management & addition of "last online" column
New weapon type for all empires: SMG
Short period of invulnerability will be added to freshly spawned / revived players - breaks upon game actions such as entering a vehicle or using a weapon.
Dynamic / player configurable colors for minimap & overhead indicators for enemies, friendlies, and squads within a platoon
New Hot Spot system that displays where active fights are occurring on the map
New spawn buildings with more exits, protected balconies and easy roof access to make them less campable.
Tunnel systems for amp and tech facilities to give access from spawn rooms to interior of bases and base walls without having to go above ground.
Making MAXes render more reliably at long distances for players in vehicles
AA improvements, notably flak changes for turrets and skyguards, giving them some better ability to aim, although not drastically impacting their DPS.
Fixes to missiles so that they more reliably detonate and actually blow stuff up
Air vehicle weapon tweaks
Increases to reload speed for certain HE ground vehicle weapons
And of course... lots of bug fixes

So with that I would like to organize some swarmside 2 after the update is out. So first Id like to know who is interested in attending? After I find that out we can talk about sever/faction.

Yeah, I'll jump in after the patch. Even though I'm starting to suspect that maybe this game wasn't ready for release, at all. . . .

Oh ya its confirmed the game developers where forced to release it early by SOE. Im glad to see they are making the best of a bad situation though, Id say if you don'y like the game put it down and come back in a few months.
