@jesus_phish: Okay, that's cool then and certainly something I'll check out, but I still think it will also need more maps (I know they've said there'll be more, but only a bit farther down the line), modes etc to truly sustain a big player base.
After playing this for about 8 to 10 hours or so I can say just two things about it.
1) It's good. It feels great to play, it's smartly designed and the characters are just different enough to make them feel unique.
2) I don't think that it has any lasting legs in it's current form whatsoever. There's no real progression, the lootboxes are mediocre in general and the costumes you can unlock from them are just boring (this certainly isn't Overwatch), the map is very small and there's only a single mode (which makes sense, but still).
Bit of a shame, but I doubt I'll play a ton more until some updates start hitting.
I'm really loving it so far after about 20 or so matches (and 2 wins). It definity plays better than PUBG and I really like the 3 man squads, since the smart communication stuff even makes it playable with randoms.
Sadly it keeps on crashing on my PS4 since yesterday evening, either in the character select or the match itself (it fucking crashed in the final shoot-out between my squad and the one other remaining team). Hopefully they'll hotfix this soon.
