Questions from Robop1g
Hey Guys I had the chance to try out the beta on PC. I was curious what you thought of the inclusion of an auto aiming handgun?


I have only played Attrition so far have you run into any matches where things were pretty even?  All the games I played seemed lopsided one way or the other.

Anyone experience any issues?  I experienced a few times where it became laggy to the point of being a slideshow but hopefully that's ironed out before it launches.

How do you think it will do against COD?  Any idea if there will be any story based single player stuff or is it Multiplayer only?
