    Im just trying to get a general consensus on the MP for FoC. Im in no way bashing it or anything, just to me WfC was a far better MP game. Just seems like somethings a bit off and cant quite put my finger on it. Not sure if its the scouts taking out Titans in a couple shots, or the lag or heck even myself not used to the game after a long hiatus from WfC. What are everyone else's opinions? complaints?

    Still by far believe FoC to be one the best games out this year thus far and i applaud HighMoon on a job well done.

    It's definitely a different ballgame than WFC. I like it, but it's totally different.

    FoC MP is "close enough" to WfC MP that I'll keep playing. Way less loadout customization and less battle actions (no killstreaks or vehicle tricks). I don't mind that dash took the place of double jump, but it ALSO took the place of your second ability.

    If the online communities of both games were equal, I'd be playing WfC without looking back.

    I've had far more fun with FoC Multiplayer then WFC's, but part of that was I got in very late to WFC, so most of the players still playing were level 25.

    The one aspect that I really quite like is that there's a far greater 'encouragement' for people to play together rather than everyone being a one man army running out and gunning the enemy down.

    its funny you say that.
    i feel the same way its just you get on teams that dont care to much about that at all lol. personally it seems like it takes forever to kill different classes attached to the lag kinda turns me off of the game.


    i agree though that it is a different ball game. now i dont mind that at all but when your used to splash damage killing people its def a bit of an adjustment exp. being a vet of WfC.

    I loved them both.

    Back when WFC was being demoed the multiplayer is what sold me on it, it was fantastic but now after playing FoC, WFC's multplayer feels outdated. I love the new changes, things do feel a bit off though like when you're sure you had a kill but you get scrapped instead...

    FoC is different enough from WfC that I actually enjoy the multiplayer.

    Maps are worse, kill streak bonuses being nixed makes it duller in action, the only thing that is superior is the custom class stuff.

    I'm greatly enjoying mp.

    But on the scouts killing soldiers, that happened to me all the time in war.

    I've never encountered much lag (one game had some stuttering, but that was about it), but I think I've got a fantastic example of team play.

    The other day I was in a game with a fellow board member here and we were playing conquest. Our team consisted of 2 Titans and the rest (including myself) were Scientists. We won 400 to 91. Why? We played our roles to perfection. Four Scientists healing the Titan at once while shooting at them (including the armor weaking shots) made the other players easy to kill, then transform, fly to support the other titan, and rinse and repeat. The two Titans just went to any point being attacked and we'd back them up.

    That game alone was more fun then virtually every game I ever had in WFC.

    I'm enjoying it...though I am pacing myself with it because I don't want to have any excuse to get sick of it.

    The maps though....... A few of the maps I don't care for too much. Like "Corrosion" seems unnecessarily big (there are certain areas I'm pretty sure most of you have not seen) , while "Sewers" isn't big enough (spawning right in front of enemies), and "Spire" doesn't have enough pathways.

    We do need a few more of them too.

    I think the weapon selection is complete bullshit and the fact that you cant pick up dead enemies weapons is also pretty lame.

    HMS wanted to eradicate things like a scout picking up a Scrapmaker. Having a powerfull weapon is unfair if u have the agility of a scout. Or a scientist picking up a sniper and flyin to the top of a building and camping. HMS have tried to keep the gameplay for each class balanced.

    Ebay:
    MP in the last two Transformer games from High Moon has basically been phoned in. They didn't really do anything new. To make matters worse, they didn't give us the ability to create separate characters for Autobots/Decepticons this go around, which is baffling to me as it was supported in the other games. Why do you reduce the capabilities of a new game? I don't like being limited to 3 characters of each type with different paint jobs to distinguish the A from the D. :(

    Didn't give us anything new this time? They gave us brand new weapons, gave everyone a dodge/run ability, removed kill streaks for balance reason. I'd say they greatly refined their multiplayer.

    I will agree that being unable to choose a Bot chassis and Con chassis per slot is questionable at best (though I can imagine why). But then again, I always used slot 2 of a class for my Con while slot 1 was my Bot anyway so it didn't affect me too much.

    MP is okay but I can only play for so long before I get annoyed and switch over to escalation. I think I'm more of a team game mode type of guy (most of the teams I'm forced with in MP suck or think every mode is TDM).
