Yeah, it's fun, but species with smaller numbers tend to die out a lot quicker...
Maybe the TA2 server will have a following much the same as the TOG BF2142 server does.

And much as I do in BF2142, I like the vehicles in this game too. 4 stations in a tank instead of 2 - makes for bigger bangs!
But definitely 3 things makes this a different type of game.

First is the shields. Some like it, some hate it. I don't mind either way, but it gives noobs like me a fighting chance.
Second is the kit customising. You are not limited to any type of kit (ie engy, assault, etc.) you can mix and match anyway you want
Third is the jump packs and over drive. Cool ways of getting around the field in a hurry. When combined with lock-on, taking out an opponent in mid flight (you or him) makes for a spectacular shot.

Do the shields work like they do in say another game like Borderlands?

(Which is to say, shields recharge if out of combat for a while, and with talents on killshots. Recharges faster than something like Health which often doesn't heal up at all.)

Don't know about Borderlands.
It takes a lot of rounds to drop someone's shield, but there are passive modules that allow shields to recover quicker than normal too.
Damage has to be repaired though.

I enjoy this game but am finding it hard to get a good game with a fair amount of people going...

Play from Australia WA

This game tends to suit my sporadic game availablity, so now have it.

GFWL ID: Zhuyn

Will try and host whenever I'm on, unless I see an AUS one up already. Seems to be peer to peer. edit: hmm seems there are dedicated ranked servers or can host O.O

Spose I should see if there are port recommendations...

recharge if you don't get hit for a bit.

I really enjoyed this game a lot in Beta... would be very happy to pick it up at a bargain price with a swag of TOGgers and smash it up here and there...

I think it was 50% off yesterday on steam, but don't bother, it is dead now
Actually, NA primtime it isn't bad so you might find a full server, but OC is miserable.

Its a shame, is really fun when you find enough people on.
