    Me and a buddy started playing this last night and I have to say we had a blast. It is pretty much what I hoped for in Bullet Run but this F2P shooter does it and its already live. Anyone else playing this?

    There's a few more toggers picking this up here and there. Currently I do not get a ping much better than 180 to the servers but still find the game quite playable.

    looks like they've got AU servers up now? Im getting 70 pings.

    Lots of fun - good game modes and lots of action

    get some laggy moments but if they get scale in AU then maybe they'll fix that?

    Yep Aussie servers seem to have appeared as of yesterday (not sure if they were there before) and this has captured my fancy as my new shooter... with a bit of Tribes on the side :p

    bump - this game is still going strong - try it for free people. If you like shooters with some high tech gadgets then you will not be disappointed.

    Tried it today and it seems pretty good... although I couldnt find any Aussie servers and I had pings of over 200ms...

    Aussie servers are offline whilst they are resolving some issues... but they are committed to bringing them back up.. It is very tolerant of ping @ 200ms

    played a few games. It's... not amzing, IMO. Weapons are odd, don't feel effective and i can't really tell where i'm aiming yet, and movement is a bit chunky/slippery. Might take a bit of getting used to.

    I'll come back when there are Aus servers again. Ping of 230-240ms just makes things worse.

    Just picked this up, and I'm having a blast in my few matches so far.

    I really love the whole customization thing - and also the option to rent really powerful weapons for a day if I want.
    It's a bit more fast combat-like than I prefer (i.e. more like MW/BO than BF), but it's a nice thing to pop on for a couple of quick matches.

    I love it, I'm actually putting allot of time into it. It's very good.

    Hey guys. I am finding Backlight Retribution a really fast and fun game to play. For a free-bie, it's really good. Can anyone tell me how you'd normally meet up with other TOG members to play in teams? Is there such an option? :D

    I've added a few toggers as friends in game

    Maybe a TOG BLR Steam Group - if I get some tiem today I might create one...would be a private group by invite only so might make a new thread.

    That way you could hit people up for their BLR in game name.
