You aren't helping anyone
Why are their so many fanboy's that jump mindlessly to defend this game? I love natural-selection, and I support UWE, but I don't intend to silently put up with things that aren't acceptable. The game is unplayable performance wise, the game cannot cope with latency the way a game should, the game lacks all concepts of balance. Are these all a part of it being a beta? Of course they are. Does that fact make these not true? No, it most certainly doesn't.
For the foreseeable future, do not refute these shortcomings. If you do, you will be wrong. You'll notice its the people with 5 gHz CPUs saying not to complain about performance, and its the people with 20 ping that say the game handles latency fine. You will also notice that these same people will complain that the game is poorly balanced, as if they can selectively defend what aspects they want to.
The people not complaining about FPS are the people who are playing with 20 FPS, not 5. The ones saying the latency is fine are the ones who have never had more than 20 ping. The 16 year olds who never played on a 56k, where everyone had 300 ping, and the games ran fine
. I was just kicked from a (controversial) server for stating that the marines were building ARCs because my tick rate was continuously dropping. Stop denying problems that are so obviously real.
