Notes on upcoming new contents - 10/28/2014

Hello everyone,

First of all, I would like to apologize about delayed contents update and announcements. As you might already know, we have launched GunZ 2 in South East Asia last month. We’ve been focused on the project for the past few weeks, and we are now ready to push the next contents update on Steam for you all.
We have prepared 24 new items all equipped with brand new features that will bring a huge impact to the gameplay.

See below for details of the new gears.

The latest technology developed by scientists of NAU enabled soldiers to use their optimite energy when handling firearms. By doing so, they can use special abilities installed on the weapons.

Ivan

[X-ray Scope] Scope zoom sees through objects. (Constantly consumes ZP)

Optimite Crime Buster MK II
[Lock and Load] Waiting for 3 seconds in scope zoomed in activates Lucky Bullet. (Replaces original Lucky Bullet)

Optimite Royal Daggers MK II
[Chain Rush] Shadow Rush skill's cooldown time resets if an enemy is killed from skill damage. (Skill cooldown time is increased)


Elena
Optimite Spitter MK I
[Precision Strike] Grenade shells can be detonated by pressing R button. (Grenades do not explode upon contact with targets.

Optimite Spitter MK II
[Fire Skipper] Grenade shell explodes and bounces off group 4 times. (Reload time increased)

Optimite Baton MK I
[Shockwave] Hammerfall is enhanced with 3 consecutive explosion instead of 1. (Explosion damage gets smaller over the course)

Optimite Baton MK II
[Determination] After taunting motion, Elena can use powerful unblockable attack with mouse right button. (Replaces Launch Attack)


Wayne
Optimite Eagle Eye MK I
[Roulette] One round per each clip does greater damage. (Disables Fast Draw)

Optimite Eagle Eye MK II
[Auto Aim] One Shot One Kill locks on targets automatically, but max target number decreases.

Optimite Anaconda Tail MK I
[Arms Robbery] Grabbing an enemy temporarily neutralizes enemy's weapon.

Optimite Anaconda Tail MK II
[Mad Cowboy] Upon casting Extermination, Wayne charges forward attacking all enemy targets in his way. (Cannot turn direction)


Max
Optimite Undertaker MK I
[Explosive Round] Fires explosive rounds instead of the conventional bullet. (Cannot move while firing)

Optimite Undertaker MK II
[Recycled Rounds] Idling the gun regenerates ammo.

Optimite Legion Shield MK I
[Shielddozer] Max charges 3 times upon casting Shield Charge. (Skill damage decreases over the course)

Optimite Legion Shield MK II
[Light Leap] Shield Shock consumes only 1 ZP bar. Shield Shock can be cased in air. (Skill damage is reduced)


Rose
Optimite TDW-4 MK I
[Guided Rocket] Fired rocket traces after the target Rose's crosshair is pointing. (Firing rate decreased)

Optimite TDW-4 MK II
[Multishot] Rose can fire upto 3 rockets at once by pressing and holding Fire button. (Movement speed is decreased while charging shots)

Optimite Survival Knife MK I
[Humongous Fall!] Skill damage of What you got in there? is also increased by 50% but chances to trip also increases to 100%

Optimite Survival Knife MK II
[Kaboom!] Jump slash triggers an explosion and damages all nearby enemies.


We’ll be have a few rounds of testing period to finalize these new items for the next 3 to 4 weeks, and then prepare for release. Again, I apologize about the prolonged delay in contents update.

Id rather the original game... this one isn't terrible, but is in no what way comparison to the gameplay to be expected from the community. Steam should pick up the Gunz The Duel. (first one) and carry it run some servers...bet it does better than this game.

Been a while since I played, but last I heard the item system was still garbage, a lot of the cooler aspects got nerfed, and it's still unbalanced AF, perhaps more so.
The Idea was so great that I stayed hooked for a while, but the appeal didn't last.
It's like Archeblade, only Archeblade sucked because there were so few devs and funds, This just sucks because that's the way it is. Great idea ruined. Could have been much better. Again, it has been a while, but I have heard things have only gotten worse. The other reviews, however make me question myself. To each his own.

As a person who never got to play the Original GunZ, I was fortunate enough to enter this game with a sort of "free-slate" so to speak towards the massive dissapointment that most of the GunZ: The Duel players had.

However, because of this unbiased-ness I'm also able to clearly evaluate what's lacking, and in what areas. So here it goes:

I find that the tutorial to this game is clunky, for starters. They teach you basic manuevers (sure) and then don't bother to explain some of the more finer aspects of the game (like juggling, guard-breaks, parry's) and overall "Mobility" lessons that are quintessential to gameplay.

Right from the get-go you're confused though, as you're presented with three characters, with all their own different types of play styles.

A Sniper (Who most people go for stupidly, and I myself fell for this trap)
A Gunslinger (Balance between Offensive and Mobility)
A Shield-Trooper (Heavy-Offense, Super-Defense)

However, what it doesn't tell you is which one is geared towards beginners, and which one is geared towards advanced players. Take if from me when I say the Shield-Trooper is the best first choice, for both campaign and beginner's in general.

So now you're in the game, and you're excited. You load up a Co-Op game and figure: "Awesome! This is going to be so much fun."

Three minutes passes, and when you decided to stupidly try to go in for meelee kills, you were facerolled by enemies whose AI are set to "Easy Mode" And you're left scratching your head in mystery. "Whatever" you say, and use one of your tokens.

What you fail to realize is that your tokens are impermanent, and suddenly you find yourself penny pinching them for those last-minute saves. Meanwhile, your teamates (who are either higher skill cap and alive, or dead and furious at you, screaming for a "revive pls" every two seconds) are equally getting frustrated by the game, and with you and eventually quit.

Okay, so you figure that the campaign mode is merely bugged, and will get better with time, right?
No.

So you give up on Campaign and go to versus mode, where you're excited to play against other players. You begin searching for a match...and then you search some more....and then you search some more.....and then you search some more.... and then you search some more.... until -finally- you get into a match.

Oh how wondrous! You finally made it into a match, and you're fairly certain that you'll be ju~
-BOOM-

You. are. dead.

"WTF!?" you yell in annoyance, as you check what killed you. Turns out a guy whose ping is skyrocket, and is also the host, happens to be pretty much lag-owning everybody in the room. You suddenly find yourself unable to land clean hits, and you begin doing "Lag Compensation" shots.

You make last place, and throw your hands up in defeat.

Needless to say: I'm coming to this game as an old fan of S4 League, where I was God-Like in terms of skill. Coming here? Doesn't matter. I can't hit a target that literally phases through my bullets, or doesn't feel the effects until seconds later. Melee combat is a joke as well, and overall this game feels horribly clunky and bad.

There's a reason I uninstalled it.

GunZ: Host advantage like it's 2001. Remember when people used to unplug their routers and torrent while playing halo 1? Welcome to the 2014 version of that.
