The gun damage feels very awkward and I'm not just saying that because you think I can't shoot. I went 30 in 9 on a full server and it just feels odd.

You'd think an assault would do less damage then a support but be more accurate, and quicker and the support would have a bit more health and more damage but less accurate but the assault clearly does more damage from my playtesting. Also the shotgun feels like your throwing rocks at them. It can take 6-7 shots before you even kill someone depending on what their shields level is at.

This one should have been left in the cooker a little longer. Performance issues and the server crashes make playing it unbearable.

This is the first BETA release... BETA! Its going to have some issues still, report them, and next patch hopefully they get fixed, but as its a beta you cant assume it will be perfect... have some common sense guys

For a game inspired by quake, unreal tournament and tribes, I'm really disappointed in all the hitscan weapons. Projectile weapons were what made those games great, and surprisingly enough - besides grenades - there's not a single one in Orion.

Alien weaponry is coming in a future update. They only have human weapons in this Beta version. I'm not sure what they are, but one can always be hopeful.

You guys need to put this on steam so more people can learn about the mod. When insurgency did it awhile back they saw the number of players sky rocket. Great mod!

It won't be released on Steam until it's a full release, non-beta, mostly bug-free, and decently popular.

However, Pirates, Knights, and Vikings 2 is somehow getting on Steamworks, so good luck.

Pirates, Knights, and Vikings 2 is well deserving except for the painfully slow work on it

It was released recently and 90% of the servers are empty! Why?!

Probably because servers crash 3/4th's of the time.

because half of the ppl who want to play can't because it crashes when they try to join.

We are addressing this on Friday.

We think we found that nasty little bug about an hour ago.

Also going to be releasing 3 new maps upon this patch release.

We appreciate that. It gets frustrating sometimes only because I can see the finished product in my head but it's going to be sometime until you guys get to see that. However, these are betas and we do want your feedback as we do listen intently and this is, afterall, for you guys.

So keep posting them nasty little first release bugs and we will slap the crap out of them!

Wow...looks awesome! Just a thought, but how well of a gaming computer do you need to run this? Cause I get minimal lag playing Half-Life 2 on medium settings, and this looks like it would rape my computer.
