So, as Ryo asked earlier, is there going to be enough interest in this one to start a separate Div? I've been quite enjoying the beta, reminds me of BF2 crossed with UT2k4.

Haven't tried the game myself, however came across an RPS link to a UK pre-order special @ 14.95 (plus 2.35 if you're outside the EU). Considerably cheaper than what you'd get here in Australia in store or via steam.

If the interest and numbers are high enough then initially there will be a seperate public forum and if the interest continues then yes, a seperate private division will be started

Huge thanks for that mate......that's half the price of the Steam version over here, and a significant saving over other online retailers.

The way I see it (especially in light of the cheap price thanks to Thermal), is that this comes out over two months ahead of COD:MW2; so if, at a bare minimum, I play it between it's release and COD:MW2s release, I will have got my moneys worth out of it.

Just been trying it out today

Thought it was a bit naff at first

But then gave it some more time and learned the controls and nades better

Started doing some of the missions and deploying mini guns to help me and found that I was really starting to get into it

Crappy pings over here though best was about 250 but was still playable

I downloaded it (fileplanet makes me sad) and I have only played a couple of games vs bots so far but it seems pretty cool, it reminds me of a cross between Unreal2 XMP and Tribes. I need to RTFM and play with some humans next. I do hate the way it uses Gamespy ID's for your player name, somebody already took my name on there and I cant see a way of changing it to something else in game .
I'm still on the fence about buying it as I have a backlog of games I want to play and MW2 and L4D2 are just around the corner.

Hey that sounds great, dynamic missions slipping into multiplay just to mix things up and stop them feeling so static (After a while you just know how certain maps usually play out - heh).
