OP  10/26/12 5:24:40 PM#1

spent 95% looking at a list of full games and spam clicking the 0/12 players games only to get the "unable to join" error, i want to play but that isnt my idea of fun. is it too much to ask for somekind of queue system?

having fun playing against people who have full upgrades already with no ranking system. must be fun to be that guy. time played>skill

latency leashing is infuriating in any shooter this is happening way too much and there's only 12 people in the room. maybe this is one of those games that would play better if this was korea and we all lived couple hundred miles from eachother.

I was looking forward to this game but this is just unacceptable. I know "It's in beta" but seems in a really sorry state for coming out so soon.

Yup, can't even join a game.

I've heard Hawken is deathly slow and a big let down so far. For a guy that comes from Quake... that sounds awful.

Seems to be running fine now, for me at least. I havnt had the "unable to join" error for a while.

 

Can't say I've had any problems with fully upgraded players. It took me some time to get the controls right, but once I did I was having a blast. Was on or near the top in most of my games this evening. So far my experience with the game is difinitely skill > time played. Not that I'm very skilled, but I was able to take out upgraded and larger mechs by using the terrain and some fancy juking and jiving.

 

I havn't experienced any lag issues either. Were you filtering the game servers by region? Everything was smooth as silk for me playing on both US East and US West.

After dealing with the unable to join error for an hour I finally got to play some and I have to tell you I had more fun getting the error message than I did actually playing the game.  It is garbage.  Your stuck with the same weapon loadout you cannot change up at all except for your primary weapon you have an alternate choice there but its the same for everyone so everyone will be pretty much the same.  You know MWO isnt the greatest game ever but atleast not everyone driving an Atlas mech is sporting the exact same build.  Nice try hawken but you fail.

Its a CLOSED BETA from a small Indie company.

WTF do you guys always complains on every little shit on this site?

If you not happy just spam on their forums all the bad issues so that they can improve on the games.

 

Pardon my English as it is not my 1st language :)

I'm in the game from the very start. There was problems before and there will be untill launch. Still the gameplay it offers is very very good so if you just have patience and let them fix up some of the issues now.  So yeah, have some faith and patience people.

what does the size of the company have to do with the quality of their product that they're testing for release?

 

it's a competitive market. this crap isn't competing.

This problem has been patched now and you're able to get into the servers at least.

Maybe because the larger companies use "beta" as a marketing gimick and it's very possible that  smaller companies are using Beta as an actual beta.
