The NDA has been lifted today. Been playing since last week and it's awesome so far, except for the FPS issues. The beta is just getting started so there is still a ton of optimization to be done now that a lot of players are participating.

I'm playing on USA West 03 server as Mattisyahu, if anyone else is playing. Had a good run the other night. Joined up with about 10 other players and we flew a Galaxy around, capping locations. Very effective when done right but it didn't feel OP at all. In fact, we got blown out of the air about 35 minutes later and crashed into an enemy point and were quickly eliminated.

I'm playing as Light Infantry and am feeling a bit overwhelmed at the whole thing. The map is massive and sometimes it takes forever to get to some action; then you get killed and have to start all over. The Rambo strategy definitely is tought to pull off. A lot of times I've found just doing recon and trying to eliminate the enemy little by little has the most success.

And hopefully they can get some more updates out: sometimes the game looks fantastic, other times it looks about average. Wonder how long the beta is going to last?

I played on US East 01 last night, name is Twitches. Probably for about 4 hours solid, there was a 3 way battle at the most insignificant outpost (snake wind pass or something) and there was easily about 40 players from each faction in this tiny base. MAX with 2 x anti-infantry made for huge kill streaks. Oh, then we proceeded to Liberate the **** out of the vanu.

I'm Dreamspell on East 01, Wavespell on East 03, and DreamspellVS on West 01. I normally hang around The Crown and the surrounding areas, except Zurvan because my laptop can't handle it, lol.

Man, I hope SOE makes some progress on the client. It just does not feel in any way close to being polished...I can't believe they still haven't fixed the MAX animation!

Just a heads up they have an 'Alpha Pack' now for $40 which gets you beta access, $40 Station Cash, 10% XP boost, unlocked weapons, etc. Not sure how I feel about buying the pack at this point.

Joined up with an online clan for PS2. They play on EU servers but thus far haven't had any issues with lag - we'll see what happens. Had a pretty good run tonight, playing as NC we are getting 0wned as of now. Almost all our sites are gone, the map is getting pretty small. Was able to recap a few locations and joined up with a mate in a tank and we had a good run (downed a couple transports and almost had a Galaxy), but by then their reinforcements arrived.

Feel like I'm getting the hang of the game a bit. It feels a bit like Battlefield conquest, which I love.
