Well, Waiting is pretty long sometimes, also maybe it only me but the mouse is OVER sensitive I needed to take him to 400DPI so I can play normally, also the game is really new so lots of people who don't know what to do at all are inside, I didn't figure out if you gain something from "leveling" so right now the game fells like standing in place..

Definitely worth the purchase, I got Guns of Icarus during the sale
A short gameplay video I made of it, running in Ubuntu 12.10 with maxed out graphics if you're interested in seeing how it runs:
This game runs really well, and the Quick Match option makes it a no-hassle for me to join games. If you get disconnected, there's even a button to reconnect to that game (albeit, limited time though).
Problems I've had with the game are only two: It takes a good 5 seconds or so whenever loading a map, it's textures and models. Secondly, the mouse sensitivity is too high! I have a Razer DeathAdder, and even after using xinput to reduce the sensitivity beyond Ubuntu's standard limits, it's still too fast. A short nudge to left or right results in a 180 degree turn. Sometimes even 360 degrees turn.
