Just thinking about it actually, I think one of the things I like about it thus far is that I did not notice any sway while running or aiming if you are not fatigued. I am not really a fan of games that make you play the with the gun swinging about in prone rested positions.

Here are a few pics for you guys

NB I have one Steam Code left in the event we get another player

If no one else is interested I'll give this a go.  I have no experience with the game, so I'll be cannon-fodder, but this seems to be a good way for me to get into playing MP
That's fine. I'll rejig the league a bit so you get a variety of opponents and situations. Check your PM for the code. :)

That was an appealing review.  I went to steam, read more about it, and bought it for $10.  Can't be more persuasive in a review than getting a buy out of it.
Glad you liked it.  O0

That's impressive, how many game hours to finish it all. I still have to get back to Pillars, i tried the master below way to early and didn't have much success.


I restarted twice.  Once early on when I was figuring it out.  The second restart was after I had not touched the game for a year or more and decided to whip through the first third.  There is 203 hours total, but I get OCD about doinging everything.

No friends system would be a huge concern for me.

I don't have friends so I'm fine.  :2funny:

Jomni do you have this? I have it now. I was rather impressed actually, never having played squad. Sheesh thier is a lot to learn and the community in my area seems to expect you know everything already... apart from sounding very mature, they seem to be much much younger than me :)

Grabbed Post Scriptum for the test weekend. Sound effects are great. Plays a little like a really small version of flashpoint, around the size we used to make our missions. A lot to explore here. Game I think has the right ratio of realism and practicality for a playable game so far. Here are a few screenshots off my PC so you can see what it looks like on a lower end PC. Was getting 40FPS, although at times it dipped to 13FPS. I am running an old 3570k processor and a GTX970 GPU and had most settings at the top, for those that want to know.
 It's alpha and I am not sure when the next test weekend is. There were tonnes of servers full when I checked. Generally with 80 people or so in them

he mode I just played had an offensive and defensive side. Once the objectives are taken by the attacking player, one by one. They cannot be retaken. Only remaining objectives can by defended. This does not preclude a counter-attack but does stop that counter attack from actually taking back ground. In real life of course attacking and defending were most often the roles of armies at least locally. Meeting engagements did happen of course. I destroyed a Sherman Firefly with my panzerschreck as well as the infantry scout covering ahead. However because I was on my own, at an already capped objective. It was to no avail. In fact come to think of it, I do not even think kills are "literally" displayed in the points scoring system. It simply lists things like "teamwork" and "objective". This is a great incentive (not incentiviser) to work as a team. I assume if you stay with your squad you automatically gain points.

It really is a breath of fresh air to see terrain that trys to actually look like the area it portrays as well as undulating enough to make infantry effective at moving without getting immediately pinned. The fact that most players are forced to have their historical counterparts bolt action rifles helps in that regard. Tanks are very hard to see out of, although I only tried an British armoured car. You do see the commander of tanks unbuttoned, I imagine for obvious reasons.

Congrats on the win Airboy. I also chose to send the souls back to the babies. There will be repercussions for that in Pillars 2.

You will have company in the cannon fodder category as I also have no experience with this particular game.
