First impressions from Open Beta (New player here)
So I played so far around 2,5 hours and will probably continue later on during week as well. It's my first time playing so here it goes.
- Building is more fun for me than Raiding, however It's bit expensive to build (buy places). I thought it was "free" option same as raiding - you just build or raid freely, you don't have to grind anything. That was bit suprising for me, but since it took me just around 1 hour to unlock medium sized place, it's probably nothing too grindy I quess. Within few hours you can unlock hopefully few maps that you can build.
- I like how you can see stats from your public maps (Feels good when people rating and dying in your map haha).
- Raiding isn't that super interesting imo. I feel like playing more than just few maps in row will be boring to me. It's quite repetetive.
- I am not sure if griding needs some balancing, since (at least for building) you have very basic things you can build (two traps and one NPC) and it will probably take lot of hours to unlock all basic tools for killing raiders (not counting all upgrades). Also what if someone really spends a lot of time playing... is there some end game? prestige? (Like in DbD you can keep grinding add-ons / offerings, etc. or there are SO MANY characters, etc. it's like endless in a way).
Overall I really like idea of this game, I probably prefer building than Raiding since it's quite repetetive. Also I hope the game has decent ammout of playerbase since the concent will be primary making the community (building maps & raiders using them). If there is too little from one side or another it could be a problem.
Thanks for reading! :3
