Anyone getting it or have played it? Thoughts?

huntz just hooked me up with his account and im downloading it right now. The things ive heard is its a slower version of tribes.

the promising thing about the game is the devs have guarenteed $1 million in 2013 in 'Esport' Tournaments. Thats worth atleast checking it out IMO. Also its Free.

I have it. It's alright. Mechanics are weird and physics but it looks like it could be fun.

I only played the beta I got for a few hours but it felt kinda gimmicky to me, one of the times I played the server latency was pretty bad. It really felt more like blocky MMO combat more than anything else. I'll admit I probably played it less than I should have to give it a fair shot but it just hasn't been high on my priorities since I experienced a little bit of it. Cool concept but I'm really beginning to doubt it's going to develop into what I want. I'll still give it a shot again sometime though, it was enjoyable for what it was.

TBH that money in "esports" is just basically 90% bait for suckers until it's proven to be a watchable and good competitive game, yeah if you get in on the ground floor you might be able to make a little money streaming and playing. However, it's probably gonna be really top-heavy and if the publisher doesn't get the results they want from it they'll just cripple the whole scene. Coming from T:A of all things, this should be obvious.
