So I did enjoy Natural selection 1 back in the day. Is this game worth dropping $10 hard earned on it?
More so I'd like to know what kind of state is it in, buggy as hell or nicely polished?

I know there are a few fans here so let me know the crap stuff about it, thanks.

I've been trying to find server stats and whatnot.

It seems it is popular enough to fill a server or two in Australia most times, although it is hard to tell without any solid statistics. Server populations are seemingly around 16/16 or 20/20, mainly 16 due to pretty intense server requirements.

I bought it on the initial day of winter sales and so far it has been quite enjoyable. I get about 130 FPS from what it tells me which is always nice. There is usually one or more Australian servers going so it isn't that hard to find some local players, I also believe GameArena has two servers up.

I got burnt by the buggy and sometimes downright unplayable beta, but I did like it when things ran ok (which was almost never )

Never have any issues finding servers at all. Seems to have a lot more players than BF3 :P

Hmmm, cant say I'm impressed so far. Doesn't feel solid. I'll give it more time. It crashed to desktop 3 times in a 1 hour window, I ended up playing chivalry instead lol. Content patch comes out in a week or 2 btw.

this game is worth $50. I play it often, about 65 hours into it so far.
Sounds like something is wrong with your pc toll, ive had 1 lockup in those 65 hours of gameplay.
Nothing quite like a close match when everyone gets to late tier tech.

Yer I played again and it felt a bit better. Everything was running fine until I hit escape to look at a keybind then it crashed again.

I am using my gimped computer at the moment which has what I think HDD issues that maybe the cause of the crash, as in NS2 cant handle the sudden pause while the disk spams itself.

Or it was AVG. It just borked my game and said ns2.exe was an 'unknown' problem. FARKEN I told it to add to exceptions then it deleted the file. fkn GG AVG, you going down the uninstall road now...

Im at a Lan and we cant get any servers to connect except on Multiplay one.

Server list takes forever to show, and super hard to connect through Nanogrid workaround.

Lol Toll. I see your chivalry screenshots all the time in my steam community thing.

Im sure its a good game but im not a big fan of team shooters. Used to hate BFBC2 when i was stuck on an attacking team that just wanted to sit and snipe all game.

just hit a record of 95 mins for one game. 24 players. Constant clash of exos, onos, ARCs.. we had 3 hives, down to two for awhile, and back to three... it was madness.
Whole server emptied upon the end. Love this game, though i'd say the ARC/Exo/mac push is rather OP.
