A look back at Awesomenauts in 2011!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jdy-ZwqPloo
During the Streamisho this week we looked back at an Awesomenauts build from early 2011. This 5-and-a-half-year old build already contains the original six characters that Awesomenauts launched with in 2012, but there are an incredible number of tweaks that we've done since then. If you want to know what Awesomenauts looked like while it was still in development, be sure to check it out!

We discuss upcoming content and various aspects of Awesomenauts development during the Streamisho every Wednesday, so make sure to follow our channel over at twitch.tv/RonimoGames.

I'm mixed on this subject and I'll get to why but first...

I'm currently league 4 due to damn connectivity issues which this game is much well known for.
The game ends
I get 6/4 (6 kills, 4 deaths)
Raelynn user approaches!
He gets 2/4 (2 kills, 4 deaths)
He complains saying that i was no good pusher and i was the reason we lost.
Other user on our team had 1/5 (No need to explain hopefully)
The whole other team tells me rae is the finest salt
I'm just confused.

Overall gameplay is really nice, and there is some similarity between characters but they all feel diverse, ontop of that you can buy skins to support that game, and voice actors, which i love. But i said i was mixed which i am... You see, the game is exetremely laggy currently, its not unplayable for me however randomly outta nowhere, a lag spike occurs, oh and if your out in the map, get this, the other team can DAMAGE you while you sit at your keyboard without any input, waiting for the game to kick in again, and when it does your most likely dead by then or have disconnected. Hopefully the next patch will be resolving these issues but i'm not changing my opnion till then.

Take a moba, and make it fun. Maybe im just not high level enough, but i dont find anyone really being toxic, mainly people will just stay silent the entire game.

I love this game. I f---ing LOVE this game.
But the community is absolute trash. It used to me okay back a couple years ago, but now so many people have left and the only people that are still aroun are the most toxic pieces of s--- you will ever have the displeasure of playing with. Go play something better with a larger playerpool.

The game is extremely fun to play. Gameplay is fast paced and brawling with your opponents in a 2d environment with a lot of different abilities extremely entertaining. It requires more skill to master the game mechanics than it seems. The graphics are great, voice cast and sound amazing, lore deep and funny. There is plenty of different heroes to choose from, you will stay occupied for a long time before you become proficient at all of them. The developers update the game all the time, they really try to meet the community's expectations and keep things fresh.

However, there are simply too many issues with awesomenauts to recommend it to a new player. Apart from the usual moba complaints (subjective issues like bad balancing, matchmaking, ranking formulas, toxicity of players, etc.) present here, which arent that big of a deal breakers to me, the game suffers because of peer to peer connection system. On top of a rather small active player base its a huge issue.

It's common to be constantly matched with players half way around the globe from you. 400 ping enemies is something you will see all the time playing this game. Not only cant you do much to prevent such players from joining your matches (region settings dont work at all, blocking a player on steam doesnt always work and is going away in a future patch it seems) but a lagging player have an upper hand when attacking you. You have to add his ping, so to speak, to all the stun, pull and knockback effects which will move you back to the place on the lagger's monitor during a fight while on your screen you are miles away from danger. The peer to peer connection system works in favour of high ping players which is really unfair to players with stable connection.

I play awesomenauts very often and enjoy it, but i have to tell, getting unfair matches most of the time is so frustrating i dont see how new players could enjoy the game now. Moba/2d-platformer mix works so great that it is strange there arent any more mobas like awesomenauts nowadays.

This 2D MOBA is a hit/miss type of game. I have found that players love it and kick the booty or they hate it and stink. I have yet to find someone that doesn't fall into one of those categorys. It's plays like anyother moba. Whether you like mobas or not, this game is fun to try and bot matches are quite the easy time killer.
