This is a great game that may have a nice, large future ahead of itself.
This makes me wonder, why are there so little graphical options?
I game on a good laptop, but the graphics card is terrible.
Now, the overall optimasation of the game is great, and resolution scale does a lot.
But if I want to play with 60fps, I need a resolution scale of 5, where the whole screen looks like weird, confusing pixelart.
I hope quality options will soon be added and I hope they will make a big difference.
Now I know not a lot of people CAN play the game, but that’s no excuse for a low playerbase.
Finding a match requires challenging a player or being challenged by one.
And in the matches I did get, it wasn’t too interesting just to hear someone you can’t find jumping around, whist he can’t find you.
It’s a game of hide and seek and I don’t particularly like that, as should the majority.
Now, if your game only requires 2 players for a match, I think matchmaking should be quite easy.
Though balance may still be a problem
And there comes my third topic, balance.
I’ve not played a lot yet, but what I’ve played was pretty off.
I got a triple kill (could’ve been more) by just placing a turret somewhere, all whilst hitting a single shot from my railgun in the whole match.
You may say “Lol git gud scrub” but really, as a new player, this is not making my experience any better.
So, I switched to my secondary. It was a yellow/gold card, so it must be amazing right? No.
Just some gun that fires bullets slower than the enemy player, dealing no damage whatsoever.
Thus, I think weapon balance and matchup balance both need some work.
Furthermore, I think a good introduction would be nice.
Bot matches and maybe a tutorial, though that isn’t necessary, would be a nice addition.
Like I said, the game is good.
The basic idea of the game is visible and it’s working.
It just needs development. That’s all it takes to make this good game into a great game.
