I decided to give the game another shot today as I hadn't touched it in ages. Nice to see some performance improvements, but the community is the worst. This is what I experienced.
Made a character, joined a server. Walked for a few minutes, shortly after leaving the safe zone I was shot in the back.
Made another character, joined a different server. Walked for a few minutes, shortly after leaving the safe zone I was shot in the back, again.
Tried a few more times, same thing happened. Now every character slot is filled with a dead character and I can't play for another 40 minutes unless I delete one, which isn't an issue now but would be with a more experienced one I imagine.
Is that all their is to this game? Just a handful of spawn points all camped by bandits?
