This game is really great. I don't know any other way to put it. You know you are having a great time when your heart is racing during the game, and afterwards you still can't stop shaking.
For anyone downloading the game for the first time, let me start by saying that as of right now, going in at a random time and clicking play to find 5 other people is very rare. It may be discouraging and feel like a dead game, but it is very much the opposite. Instead of deleting the game or never playing it because you can't find full games, watch the streams, go to the forums, and get help from a community member. Tournaments are almost daily, and pick-up games are very often. Finding a team is usually not too hard, and you can make it easy by inviting some friends to come play.
Essentially, the gameplay is just 3 on 3 hockey like matches, set in the future. There are a number of different runners designed to fill certain roles on a team, each with different speeds and abilities. Even though there is currently not a massive amount of runners, I am yet to get bored of the intense and exciting matches. There is no story/campaign mode, and the entire thing is a multiplayer game. If a player ques and finds no people or only a few (as happens often) then bots will fill in for the missing slots. Most players like to focus on a single runner to excel at, but once in the character selection nothing is holding you back from choosing any of the characters you have unlocked (all characters can be unlocked with in game currency, or real money, but please, do not get the impression that this is a pay to win game. Certain runners are stronger than others but every single one can be played well, and no runner is too far unbalanced.) The matches are a short 5 minutes long in an arena with each team trying to shoot the puck into the other teams goal.
The community for this game is awesome. Its very friendly, and alot of the members have almost the entire community on their friends list at this point. The community isn't very large at all, and alot of the players in it have been playing since the start, but you get to know everybody this way, making it really great despite the size
Honestly, this game has so many flaws currently, despite so many already being fixed. Lack of players, bad bot AI, bugs, balancing issues, and various other things all pull this game back. But i think it says something that even amidst all these problems that on other games would be enough to make me quit, this game has kept me coming back for more.
Seriously, check out this game, and remember, don't feel discouraged when at first you can't find anyone.
