Hmm, signed up for so many betas atm I can't remember whuch have NDA over them at the moment. Being an open beta Section 8 is free from one, I checked.

So basically, the sniper rifle has no crosshair waver, the zoom is INCREDIBLE! And it only takes 3-5 shots to kill anyone in regular armour. It also has a huge clip size and a fast ROF, and almost no bullet flight time (it's pretty much a railgun). Your target is huge too. Killing with the sniper rifle is easier in this game than any other game I've played. Having said that, the assault rifle and mahcine gun are no slouch when you figure out how to utilise the lock-on feature properly. The sniper rifle still takes the cake for the "I-win" button.

I'm hoping there's plenty of server settings for them.

Slipping intelligent (not really scripted pathing etc) bots to pad numbers at low concurrency could help get games going. Is that how its done?

The Aus servers have been filling up pretty nicely of late. Having said that I can't see myself buying this game over Global Agenda (even though S8 is F2P and Global Agenda is P2P). At the moment the game has a ranking and experience system, but there's seems to be no point to gaining levels, so leaves me little in the way of motivation. It's really a pretty stock standard shooter with a few gimicks like the target lock system, the speed boosted sprint and the ingame purchasing system for deployables and vehicles.

*nod, I'm interested in Global Agenda as well - but isn't it a quarter or so out?

And do we have enough interest in a Section 8 division?

Last I had heard, their final section of the game 'territorial control' was hitting their beta testing servers but haven't heard anything about how that went. I've been waiting to hear back about a Q&A that is with their dev's, they've been quiet of late.

Just noticed this article in thirteen magazine, pages 35-39.
Thirteen 1 : The Online Games Magazine

Really good game overview which (for anyone not playing in the beta) will explain how the multiplayer plays out (if not the singleplayer side also).

Downloaded the Open Beta today. I think I just played for two hours straight. Took a little learning curve, but its fun. Doubtful with COD4 (2) coming out later this year that I'd order this too, but its fun distraction
