Has anyone been playing and noticing that your allies and enemies will just pop in and out of being visible (I'm not talking about infiltrator cloak). I want to play as an infiltrator, but can never find anyone to shoot because they'll pop-up for a half a second and then vanish again, it seems to get MUCH worse the farther I try to snipe.
Allies and enemies pop in and out?
I'm going to play one more time before passing judgement, but if this is true, its a massive game-breaker for me.
A competitive game, let alone an FPS that will phase in and out units, ruins the competitiveness.
The amount of players on the screen at once is possible (EVE has massive battles)
The next patch (supposed to come out this coming week) apparently will be dealing with this. Hopefully it'll be enough.
Right now, I'd like to say it's not generally an issue, since supposedly if you can't see an enemy they can't see you either. But honestly in certain situations (Tech Plant assaults in particular) it really does pretty much completely break the game.
It's important to keep in mind that something like EVE and this aren't at all comparable, because the amount of geometry and accuracy of position that EVE has to render, considering it is in space, is magnitudes less than an FPS like PS2. Nonetheless, that doesn't excuse it; if you can't cover a friendly because you can't see the enemies they are approaching, the game is broken, simple as that.
