that sounds kinda dumb but its actually really entertaining if you can get into a server.
its only been in production for like a week so its very early beta and servers are still kind of a pain.

also, it sort of has gravity physics so dont be dumb at building

Blue team is best team.

This game is crazy fun but when you consider all the crashing, refusing to connect, hackers, and lack of administrative features, it can also be a pretty big pain in the ass.

I'll wait on it for awhile before I play more.
But really, if this ever becomes nice and complete, I'd pay up 20 bucks for it easy. Ehh.. if I could get buddies to join me.
This game can be pretty intense. I like that. Kind of wish you could go prone though.

Trying to get into a server, getting lots of "Server Timeout: version mismatch or map transfer fail" errors.

Is this normal? Is there a way to fix it?

*EDIT* Now it's only giving me "it's either full or misconfigured" errors. And it's giving me them quicker than the other ones.

A step down I guess.

The full or misconfigured servers seem to be hosted by people who can't really host the game properly. Bit of a kink that needs to be worked out.
The timeout error looks like the client just sort of gives up too easily to reasonably connect to any server.

I'm pretty sure everybody gets these. Last night, Celdur, my brother, and I tried to get into a game together.
It took like 20 minutes just to find one and then other problems started coming up.

Here's something to keep in mind: don't hit ESC to close the map. It just shuts down the game. That's all it does.
For a while, I did that when I had the map open. I got over that, but it turned out my brother was doing it too. We told Celdur about it, he scoffed at how silly that habit was.. and then he started doing it.
Haha.

Oh god, just had an awesome game.  I was sorta aimlessly tunneling towards the enemy side with no real goal in mind.  I didn't think I'd survive for long if I surfaced.  It was at this time that a teammate captured their intel and caused it to respawn.  Looking at the map, I noticed it was now really close to me.  I was able to tunnel up directly underneath them.  Surfacing, I shot the one guy building the base in the back of the head, grabbed the intel and disappeared into my tunnel sealing the entrance behind me.  From there I had a straight run right to our base.

That's very ninja. I think I've been in a few games where they've done that to us.
Being primarly a sniper/front-line attacker, I die a lot and usually pass our intel tower/bunker thing quite often. So it's pretty alarming when I walk right by, everything looking totally fine, and not a minute later our intel gets delivered.

My favorite thing is running interference or diversion. I'm a pretty good shot so I'll do what I can if it comes down to a firefight, but when I see my guys heading over a hill and have a chance to distract the enemy and divert their attention to me, I'll hop around and lob those grenades. It works damn near every time.
Hell, it even works when there are closer, more dangerous targets heading toward them. But nope, they'll shoot at me because I'm just that distracting.


Gah, I want to play right now but the site got nailed.
I need my fix, man. ghasglasfdd

For people who like nades: Hit up yo' tent, boi! Seriously, visiting the tent puts you at four grenades, forty blocks, and 90 rounds. Just make sure that you use that ammo at some point.
