Too bad that they ****** off all of the people who actually bought the game when it was released, because in their last patch they tried to make it more "noob friendly" and took out a lot of the realism, Tripwire are sellouts.

The guns are accurate, you just need to aim with them. Use the iron sights, its' the only way to tell where you're aiming with a real weapon. :P
Firing not-sighted has freeaim, which takes some getting used to.

This game is great. The only thing it could use more of is players..but I can always find many servers that are near full with good pings. Just not on the lvl of BF2 or CS. Great game everyone check it out and support tripwire.

I wouldn't call changing the names of the classes an act of selling out. While I personally preferred it the old way myself, I don't mind this too much since the class name is still in the description. Other than that, the patch increased some aspects of realism, such as through the new round changing system on the tanks. Many tanks could not reload manually so the shot needed to be fired before reloading.

It's a great game, but only thing I highly dislike is how the guns have NO accuracy even when you fire. XD

What is with the whole "Booster pack" nonsense? That sounds like a fancy name for a "patch" and other stuff that is usually released for free by the publisher as a bonus, only they charge money for it. Does it cost money?

Termin-X man the change is only temoporary, in the future there will be an option to set the class names to "noob-friendly" or "realistic". Elitists like don't have to worry for much longer.

Bought the game and preloaded before release, and its still my favourite game. The trial has done good things for my clan's server, its full almost all day now. :D

BTW, I think they called it a "Booster Pack" because it adds more content, not just fixes.

I believe it's called a booster pack because it adds not just bugfixes and a new map but other things like new weapons aswell. In a way it helps signify that its a (free) mini-expansion.
