Is anyone playing this battle royale game? It's sort of like the Hunger Games.
100 players armed with only their fists parachute onto an island and have to scavenge weapons and equipment. Last player/team standing wins. An ever shrinking perimeter circle slowly herds the players into close quarters. Anyone who leaves the perimeter takes damage over time.
I read a long article talking about this game. It looks pretty amazing. If only I played those sorts of games more often I'd buy it
It is still in early access. They still have some work to do to improve the netcode. They're supposed to be adding vaulting and climbing soon, which will open up additional movement options near walls and windows.
They're also working on a few alternate maps. I think a and a snow map.
I've been having fun playing it with friends. We haven't won a match yet, but we've come in second and third place a few times. Usually we make it into the top 20.
I've started taking to hoarding smoke grenades so that I can throw out some concealment in the late game if the blue wall contracts in such a way that forces us to cross no-man's land.
The VSS is probably my favorite weapon because of how quiet it is. Engaging with most firearms generally draws fire from 2-3 other squads. But the VSS can barely be heard beyond 30 meters and its subsonic rounds don't warn the enemy about near-misses. The damage is criminally low, but the rangefinder is properly calibrated so you can at least reliably score headshots against stationary targets to make up for that downside.
Pic related. A guy that I'm preparing to kill who's damn near exactly 200m away from me. I photoshopped the target player and imposed a copy of his image down on the rangefinder. A crouching player is approximately one meter tall. 1.7 for a standing player. I am sort of aiming at his knee at the moment, but it was easier to see the chevrons in this frame before I pulled my aim up.
Will be such a good game once its finished but its almost unplayable at some points in its current state, Melee is broken as hell with your hits phasing through them half the time.
Shit loads of people play it, get matched almost instantly here in aus, fucking cracker of a game aye>>253>using meele
Mate the only meele weapon to carry is the pan. And only because its Arse armour
I got the game, I've been playing with a squad but I dunno if I can play it solo, is it less fun?
The main bonus to playing squads is faffing about with the broken physics
Other than that solo is the better gaming experiance.
I never seem to have an opportunity to loot players in group games.
When solo, you can get the drop on someone, end the fight, loot, and gtfo.
In group, you get the drop on a guy, his friends dig in, and then you have to work harder to dislodge and kill the survivors. By that point, either two more squads are fucking with you or the wall is bearing down on you.
Friends were talking about it a lot and seeing it here made me cave in. Best buy in a while. Its really intense sometimes and gives me a rush as well as forces me to socialize with friends more.

How would you say it compares to other games?
