OGAT - Update 67.0 - gCTF gamemode, Dedicater server support, Level Cap

Of Guards and Thieves 67.0 Update Overview


Changelog

Here's the complete changelog for 67.0 update:
  • New gamemode: gCTF (Guards only Capture The Flag)
  • Dedicated Server support: in testing
  • Server list: show icon and ping for dedicated servers
  • Level cap moved to Level 25
  • Arena map is now available for gTDM gamemode
  • Bug fix: stepping over a grenade explosion now cause damage

New gamemode: gCTF (Guards only Capture The Flag)

As the name says, this is an alternative version of the classic CTF.

In this mode, there are two teams (Blue and Red), both have guards classes.
At the start of this game, there will be 4 special "bases" that will be spawned
onto the map. Your home flag location, your capture point, the enemy's flag location and finally the enemy's capture point.
The objective in this mode is to bring the enemy's flag to your capture point while being able to defend your own flag from getting into the enemy's capture point. Learn the four "bases" locations for every map before playing! In this mode, knowledge of the map is essential. Knowing where the enemy is located and being able to quickly move past him via shortcuts can be the difference between winning and losing. It is a good idea to organize your teams into groups such as an attacking group and a defending group.
The match lasts five minutes in which the two teams will face each other to win the game.

Dedicated Server support: in testing
Initial support for dedicated server, not officially released yet cause there is some bug to fix and stuff to improve.
You can still start to test them, at the moment there are four testing Eu-server and three testing US-server (unofficial).
Server list: show icon and ping for dedicated servers


Level cap moved to Level 25
Now you can level up to level 25, here the icons and exp values:

This Game is awesome it have so many different gamemodes (Guards and Thieves,Team Death Match,Zombie Rush,Faceless(Slenderman),Insta Gib,Soccer,VIP,CTF,...), i love the design and the originall Game idea in the gamemode "Guard and Thieves" where the Guards defend some objects and the thieves try to steal one of them. But in the moment you feel that this game is in Early Access because you can't change Weapons so you have to play with the basic Equipment which the class offers. But i am looking forward that the developer add more Items and the New Singleplayer mode.

BUY IT!!
THE COMMUNITY MUST GROW!!

Early Access Review
So there are a lot of people who are writing bad reviews of this game, probably while not understanding the real concept and complaining about wasting their money. Here's a tip: Try the ♥♥♥♥ing demo first.

Here is my review:

What it is lacking so far in this game are features that are being implemented in the future in addition to a few bugs. This, however, is to be expected. If you take time to look at the page, you'll find a big-♥♥♥ blue box that says "Early Access". This is a big red flag for people who don't want an incomplete (however playable) game. But here is what the game does feature: A very smooth and easy to figure out system for multiplayer with minimal to no lag, in addition to a highly cooperative gameplay style. This game relies heavily on teamwork and strategy, and features a variety of game modes to play. In addition to this, there are a variety of maps and a lot of different ways to play.

I could elaborate on it further, but I think I may end up sounding a little repetative. I would highly recommend this game if you're looking for a fun game to play with friends or just have fun in online. I imagine the final release of this game will be a massive improvment on everything already in-game, and would most definitely be worth your time and money.

Wow now if this isn't one of the best games i played in a long time, so so refreshing it's absoletely a pure delight.

You play either as CT's who have different classes (assault, heavy etc) against thieves who have to steal objects on the map and that can turn off the lights and see through dark, as CT's you have to defend those objects and you have a flashlight only to see through dark and heavier weapons also.

The maps are really great, the graphic engine is smooth and nice to look at, the camera is just at the right distance from the characters to see the action happenning and those levels are very well build also.

This is early access and only MP is avaible for now with a few maps but solo mode is coming as for clans etc and new maps and bunch of stuff.

Gameplay is your WASD with mouse cursor and left click to shoot and right click for ability, you have your mouse scrolling for you diffrent weapons and grenades. R to reload etc. It feels great and smooth and overall gameplay is amazing yes.

I just have this "feel" this is going to become a "big" nice indie game, big in the sens that there are going to be players on it and will not be server abandonned for sure. You feel the quality of this game as the moment you put your hands on it and this just feels great.

Great games; just needs to eliminate f2p. Dont get me wrong, f2p's are 90% of the servers, and we should hold on to them until the game gets more popular, but honestly... people are playing this game for free as a flash game... they have half the content players who payed for it do, and they usually crowd around premium players so that they can play premium only modes like instagib, mad ball and faceless. at very least once the game reaches a more popular state, give us seperate servers. Besides that, it is a creative and fun game, that has a giant variaty of modes.

Even though this game stills in Beta it has some entertaining and fun-to-play gamemodes. OGAT is a fantastic idea and I hope a continous developing of the competitive aspect, a mod support and a map maker.

Although there are quite a few things that need tweaking and some extra work, I find it very enjoyable so far. The mechanics work fine, it's a really interesting idea and provides lots of oppertunity for interesting and creative maps & playmodes. Then again, it is in early access, so you can not expect a perfect finished game yet.

Early Access Review
Pros:

-Beautiful Graphics
-Funny engaging gameplay
-A variety of different gamemodes,
-Very simple yet addicting
-Well worth the money

Cons:

-A rather small player base
-No dedicated servers, this ties into what I wrote above because occasionally there are few or no servers to play on because it relies on players to host games and not everyone has the capability to do so. If there were dedicated servers I wouldn't mind a small players base.

I highly recommend the game, try the demo and see if you like it, and if you I suggest you buy it! :)

Of Guards And Thieves is worth buying if you are looking for a fun little stealth game that comes with many different modes to play. You can even play it for free to see if you like it, which just limits which classes you can play as.

Okay so this game going to recomened that you try it.
But you should buy if you like the game cuase you won't
be getting updates and you can't play certain minigames
that require you to purchase the game.
But now that's out of the way this game is pretty fun it's
top down shooter where two teams are spilt.(I'll be focusing on GaT)
The Guards, in this case will mostly have better weapons and more health,
but they don't have nightvision(this is an advantage for thieves)so guards will
have to use there flashlight or turn the lights on again, another disadvantage
for Guards is that you can't go through windows(blue), vents(green), and openings.(yellow)
but you can however shoot through windows and vents or throw projectiles pass them, for
opennigs your going to have to throw projectiles under it.The thieves are the opposite of guards, they mostly have very poor health, or not very good weaponsbut they can go through vents, windows, and openings, it requires mostly about stealth, team work, and careful planning to be a very goodthief. (yes you can shoot through windows and vents and throw stuffunder opennings)There are many different gamemodes for you to try out that requires different tactics(zombie rush, TDM, ect)
but it all depends on if you want to buy the game.(which I would recommend that you do)

~Of Guards And Thieves 10/10 IMO

Great game.

Still in early access but it looks and plays like a finished game and even has a free version that is just as good as the paid one.

The main menu needs to be enlarged to fill the screen and something needs to be done about the issue
with people using multiple monitors in extended desktop causing the game to minimize when the mouse
goes off the screen, especially in Soccer.. but all in all it's in good shape and can only get better.


Dedicated servers would be nice also.

Of Guards and thieves in the most fun I've had with strangers since battlefield 3.
It's like a quiet game of cat and mouse, the guards walk around trying to stop the thieves from
stealing their stuff, the thieves try to run and steal the items and make it to the exit without being shot dead by the guards.
Along side this, you get to communicate wth a fun, friendly community.
I myself have been following this game since the very early stages. All I can say is it's worth the price it is!

Overall Rating ~ 9.5/10

a fun little game, perhaps not worth the 15 dollars it costs now, however definitely pick it up for a couple hours of fun. the thieves and guards teams play very different which leads to specific play styles that you can pick such as guardian which is basically the tank with a riot shield, theres a guy with a knife on thieves team and another with crossbow and so on. there is also a decent player base usually of 100+ people playing at a time

8/10

Of Guards and Thieves:

TL;DR This game is one of the best time wasting action based "I want to play something fun and skip the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ and get right to the action" point+click shooter games I have in my library. It's a stealth/strategy/top-down shooter and it's loads of fun.

Of Guards and Thieves basic rules:
- When joining a server and when any game ends and returns to the server, immediately begin spamming "start" or "go" so the Admin knows they're permitted to begin the game. You are more important than them, after all.
- Always end every game with "gg" regardless of how you thought the game went.
- If you are a Guard, hide in bushes whenever you can, it doesn't irritate other players at all.
- If you are a Thief, hide behind doors with the Cobra class whenever you can, it doesn't irritate other players at all.
- Juggernaut and Guardian classes are your best friends, they aren't OP and are the most fairly balanced classes in game.

PROS:
- Small, mostly tight-knit community. There are multiple familiar names I see in-game that gives the game a sense of community. Always fun to play with people you enjoy playing with.
- Good strategy game with a "jump feet first into the action" mentality, if that's your playstyle.
- Can be played either casually or with intent to scar other players for life.
- No huge advantage to purchasing the full game. (YES, you have more classes/gamemodes but the game is entirely playable with the demo version, and the classes (aside from Juggernaut and Medic) really don't provide much of an advantage. ~70% of players don't have the full version.
- Enough variety in gamemodes to experience a wide range of fun.

CONS:
- Small, tight knit community. Sometimes there are barely enough players to get more than one or two good full servers running.
- Some gamemodes (Zombie Rush, Demolition especially) are near impossible without some basic teamwork. Having idiots on your team can ruin a game, but each game is 5min so not for long.
- Some gamemodes are kind of gimmicky and not very fun for all gamers. (Soccer/Faceless come to mind)
- Early Access, I never have had the game crash but occasionally if someone joins a server as the game is starting the server can crash. Not too often does this happen though.

10/10 would hide in a bush behind a door again

Least buggy early access game I've played.

Pros:

Fun cat-and-mouse gameplay in the default mode
Lots of gametypes
Decent map selection
Amazing detail and level design (a lot of people don't understand that the cemetery is actually quite defensible)
Cheap
Easy to pick up and play, but rewarding to master

Lots of great emergent gameplay scenarios: You will have lots of "stories" of how you managed to knife 2 guys coming into a room while at low hp carrying the target item and escape at the last second. It's a thrill.

Cons:

Admin can't kick players mid game
