Meh updates! Did you see his review too?


I'll be scooting down the road to indulge at 6pm.
Pretty sure I have charge left but didn't think to check last night, ah well!

I was playing with a bunch of randoms, different nationalities, all communicating and we won my first 5 games in a row. Top notch stuff.

Been playing with randoms all night, not too bad, some really close games, some total drubbings.
I did look for you to squad up but there are some issues with squads staying together apparently.
Made it to level 8 but after hitting the level required to unlock stuff you then have to earn enough crypto to buy it.
The double XP isnt working yet, it's supposed to be a download from the store but i can't find it.

So a good game in general then? I might get it when I'm on my Maternity if people are still playing it and pretend I've always had an aim controller when my bf inevitably notices I've acquired yet another new toy instead of saving my money up and spending it on the child (meh!).

Isn't it annoying when you die that you have to wait until the round clears?
I've seen the price, and that's making me doubt, but I know my skills and I'd hate to spend money on a game which will only make me wait :oops:

The double xp didn't appear to work for me either nor did early access to that operator though the cosmetics were there - when you redeem the code it is added via your services, you can refresh this.

Re randoms, the Euros were great at collaborating and communicating and tactics in general. When I jumped in later on with a bunch of Yanks, quite the opposite. :(

So a good game in general then? I might get it when I'm on my Maternity if people are still playing it and pretend I've always had an aim controller when my bf inevitably notices I've acquired yet another new toy instead of saving my money up and spending it on the child (meh!).
Wait wait wait WAIT! Stop the mother****ing boat!

Huge congratulations @Plaxinator - that's some awesome news right there. Hope all goes well. X

Anyhoo, I'm planning a session tonight if anybody wants to somehow join me. :)

it's around £25 here (Argos) which is a good price. When you die though (if actual death rather than waiting for healing) you can then man the cameras and still assist the team - even turn the match around with this.

On a side note - manning the cameras is when I noticed my second hand Aim isn't quite right. The left direction on the d-pad doesn't work but I've had it for a while now so no point sending it back. Just goes to show how little it is used though!

If you don't like Socom or Rainbow 6 siege then this probably isn't for you.
