    So yea, I saw this on steam today, saw it was free to play, saw it was still basically an alpha game, but was like, hey, its a small download, I'm bored, lets try it out.

    This game is really fun. Its buggy, its incomplete, but its more fun than most complete released games I have played lately.

    Game is basically various maps that are all essentially capture and hold battlegrounds. The combat is all action based so you need to aim your attacks, not tab target, and all the abilities combo into each other.

    Class designs are crazy too, and there seems to be DPS/Tank/Healer types. Played a few games today as a mace+shield wielding dps/healer type. Was really fun.

    There is a cash shop in the game, but currently its all cosmetic stuff, but this is one of those games that could go either way the closer it gets to being a complete product. Just have to hope the devs don't go down the "pay to win" route that so many other free to play games do.

    Anyways, its a tiny download, so if anyone is interested, message me on steam.

    It plays like capture and hold MMO battlegrounds such as Arathi Basin from WoW.

    There are capture points on the map, and you gain points for each one you hold and first person to a set score wins.

    At the moment there isn't too much depth to the game, there are no items or anything to customise your character (there are skins though, but its all cosmetic only). I would like to see some kind of item shop similar to DOTA type games as this would add a bit more depth as currently its just pick your character and fight, which is fun as the combat is really fun, but I don't see it remaining fun for too long unless they add some sort of customisation down the line.

    The game is still very early in its production, so I guess there is always hope they add more cool stuff.

    They have an announcer that shouts when you get kills/streaks like in unreal tournament, I got a "Legendary Hero" last night, I was quite happy. Plus there is a big black guy who looks like a shaved head Mr. T who fights with his bare hands and can do Hadukens. The game is really silly its fun.

    Seems to be very few UK/EU servers.

    Majority of the servers I could connect to were Russian, Korean and USA.

    Hmm, since I started playing this, I have been invited to join 5 different Russian groups on Steam.

    Think I know which region this game is popular in.
