  3. Atlas so far

    I was pretty suspicious about the 45,000 online at once claim and also weary of games where you lose your valuables if someone else kills you but I was keeping an eye on it through videos and streamers and a few things stuck out: 1- 45,000 population servers = A streamer did the math and it was like a couple thousand max? The servers were super unstable like most games are on launch , however, it would still not be even close to that claim if they were. (Hint: I don't like companies that make false claims) 2- Zerg mentality = Seems like the only people having success right now are joining mega guilds and just zerging anyone that moves, making starting areas a nightmare and even progressing almost impossible. 3- Resources = Some individuals are getting spawned on islands that lack the resources to progress. 4- The UI / interaction boxes are pretty awkward. Flags with information on top of structures that hold the flags that have their own information make it a jumbled mess at times. 5- Creature / ship interactions = This one is pretty hilarious. Bulls bouncing all over the place, snakes flying , ships crashing because they're violently shaking across your screen and randomly hitting land. 6- Visuals = The in game content is nowhere even close to the advertised videos. It's literally night and day. Awkwardly out of proportion physiques and disappointing graphics are a letdown. 7- Islands = Turns out the islands are all basically the same shape or variation of a small group of shapes / designs. Kind of a buzzkill on the exploration side of it. On a side note, people found a hidden menu by connecting a controller into the main menu screen and scrolling down. It's a "ARK: Survival" menu and has lead many to believe that this game was intended as an ARK expansion rather than a standalone title. I'm always intrigued by the next "big thing" but this game is probably something I'll never get into. If they make some major strides I may come back around and give it a tryout.
  4. 1 more day for free SubNautica!

    Get it while it's free! Really good game, especially when it's free and normally a 25.00 game. Head over to https://www.epicgames.com/unrealtournament/download and grab the Epic launcher and claim it before it's gone! Even if you don't have time now it would be wise to download it and play it at a future date!

  7. MadCast League Season IV Feedback

    A couple of things: #1 - Yes, I was on the winning team. No, it didn't feel as gratifying as it should have. a) The team drastically changed and was a bit too strong from the original team , however.... b ) the original squad was ok but still a bit weak, attendance was atrocious. #2- There's no possible way to equally balance teams 100% -- but next split the team captains should all be similar MMR / rank / capability. Or have no captains and try to do a straight "fantasy" draft by putting players in roles and assigning rank / worth to those positions . Automatic draft maybe? It's really hard to designate a player's skill because I feel like we have a plethora of players who don't actually push ranking and are far much better than their rank indicates... So who knows what the right solution is. #3- Scheduling - Not a fan of Saturday night stuff. Sometimes I play games all night , sometimes I do stuffs like an actual human being. Either way, I like having a choice. I would be intrigued if we could get 8 teams involved somehow to do the riot prize tournament.

  9. Subnautica

    I'm sure most of you saw Prince's post in Discord saying Subnautica was free until Dec. 27th so I wanted to share my experience so far in case any of you were teetering on the edge whether to download it or not. #1 The game is BEAUTIFUL! Sure, the actual ships and stuff look kinda weird but the ocean waters and the ocean floor and wildlife are breathtaking at times. #2 I downloaded this game convinced I wouldn't like it.. I was wrong. It may be single player but it is crazy addictive. Even doing the mundane farming things for basic materials doesn't feel tedious. #3 It's FREE!! Take advantage! It may not be something you sink days of time in but it is a super cool side project to release some stress. Anyway, just wanted to share my opinion. Aeryx also downloaded it and really enjoys it as well. https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/news/get-the-gift-of-subnautica-now-available-free-for-a-limited-time
