Same experience for me, but I'm gonna wait and see how things shake out. Too many connection issues during the beta--otherwise, mostly had a blast playing with friends.

Thanks to GCU, I just might bite. Can't seem to find any better deals.

Or opening doors quietly and sneaking in... locking doors with a certain number of keys given to defenders that are one use... paired with a character who can lock pick... under door snake cams... an attacker who can jam doors and lock defenders in rooms...

so many interesting possibilities if they'd just have included doors.

Hopefully this is why there aren't doors yet. They're going to be adding new Operators and maybe some of them specialize in doors.

I preloaded the game on uplay and waiting. Uplay seems to have improved since early days not much junk or never to be used stuff.

Now... When the game activates ? That is the question.

I hope so as well... but man would it be weird if all of a sudden the maps just sprouted doors all over the place... how much that would change even the most simple gameplay...

I hope it's the case... but i really can't see they adding them unfortunately :(

There's a thread in the FAQ. Not 100% sure since there's no official list of banned sites that I could find but I was told on a previous thread that this was one of them.

I really hope they let us customize Recruit guns in the full game, and not just Operator guns. No reason I shouldn't be able to put a scope on one of those guns.

Yeah, but Castle reinforces doorFRAMES (and windows) with bullet resistant material... we're talking about actual working doors, ya know? Not going to happen... but it would add some cool elements. Even something as little as adding in one or two randomly selected locked doors or squeaky doors that changed positions ever round would be bad ass and change things up dramatically!

Siege is a different game. It's not going to just repeat what 3 and Vegas 1/2 did.

Also I mentioned Counter Strike because in my previous post my comparisons suggested Siege has a lot of similarities to Counter Strike, which is a classic. And you said 'guess some people settle for mediocrity'. Hence Counter Strike = mediocrity. You're sucking at rhetoric.

Doors would be wonderful. Was it Rogue Spear or Raven Shield that introduced mousewheel door opening?

I loved the old Rainbows and honestly didn't know what to think of this. Was cautiously optimistic, at best, but after being totally disappointed by Star Wars, I find myself excited for this tomorrow after playing the beta a bunch with friends.

The PvP was solid, very tense. Terrorist Hunt was fun too, but I just wish there was a fully fleshed out coop campaign. Could have been awesome, but I'm reminded of one of the reasons why I felt so disenchanted with Star Wars: lack of content. With Battlefront, it's really the minimum amount of big maps for the premier modes that hurts the most. R6 seems to be launching with more maps, but the lack of modes is also apparent here.

Guess it just comes down to the gameplay, and I find R6 to be way more satisfying than Battlefront, which honestly feels shallow as hell. I'm just really surprised with how much fun my buddies and I have had over the weekend with this beta. Lots of tension, quick bursts of action, lots room for teamwork and planning...it almost feels like it captures the essence of those older titles. Still wish they gave us a challenging campaign to mess around with...

Tl;dr - Fuck it, my group and I plan on buying this tomorrow

I know for certain you can see it for Ranked, but I'm not sure if you can see it for Casual. I also know for sure that it can be tracked by operator as well.

IDK but that sounds amazing! As much as i'm LOVING the game... i do wish there was a little more finesse or non destructive infiltration stuff.

Like howabout an operator who could silently remove boarded up windows/door frames... or one that could sprint and move silently for certain durations (on recharge)... even one who could "peak" through barriers of all sorts either by using a snake cam or by "peeling" back a corner of castles barricade or a plank of wood and replacing it to see into the room without making noise or showing too much of a visual clue...

Though, perhaps the Recruits actually can do that, at least, in the final build. Also, I do like that the Recruits look like Sixes from the old days.

Played the beta, it is way too easy to grief your own team, and what's the point of casual mode if it doesn't give you any cash or experience? Unless that was a bug.

I'd also much prefer they get rid of the whole setup phase for the attackers, the bomb can only be in prefab locations and even then you know where it is located just by seeing where the defenders are running around in. There also seems to clearly be superior locations to put the bomb that have the least amount of entrances that everyone votes for, so just sit in there with the shotgun and wait.

I think the experience thing was a bug. I mostly played casual mode and a few rounds of terrorist hunt and I was able to get to rank 5 in the beta. There were some matches I didn't earn XP in for some reason, but I'm not sure why that was.
