Servers are locally hosted, the lag was very bad but I used a VPN to play early so I should be a European with American hosts. Will have to see how it is on the weekend.

There's no voice options and it defaults to open voice. Thankfully there is muting and mute all on the scoreboard.

Graphics and performance look fine.

I was just about to ask about this game. Seeing as you're using a VPN, your lag experience might not be representative of how well the game plays online. Are there a lot of servers up right now? Also, how bad are the microtransactions in the game (do you feel like it's pay to win)?

@andorski: The game's definitely not pay to win mostly because any upgrades you get through the card packs just don't change the game that much. It's almost completely cosmetic.

Is it worth playing the PC version with a gamepad? Or just suicide?

They let you buy the coins for the random item unlock packs on consoles but that isn't sold on PC at the moment. Coins are earned fast. It's not as bad as mobile free to play currency.

DIdn't try the game pad but player characters move quite slowly so you should be ok.

Servers are much better now it's out in Europe. It's not perfect but good enough.

The open voice is really annoying and you can't adjust it until you've joined a server, have to keep muting people when they join.

Coins you will get 5-10k a map for the longer graveyard mode, 1-2k for the short team DM. The decent unlock packs are 20k.
