Ballistic Overkill [Steam], the really fun and dirt cheap online FPS is now available in more countries! On top of that, they worked on some more optimization.

I saw a few complaints from people who couldn't buy it, so they worked on that issue and now it's available to these additional contries:
QuoteRussian Federation, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Byelorussia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Abkhazia, South Ossetia and Luxembourg.

They significantly reduced some "memory allocations" resulting in fewer frame-drops. It's impressive really, considering how damn well the game performed before the patch.

On top of that, they sorted these issues out:
- Improved Free-for-All spawns to prevent players from respawn at the same point.
- Free-for-All now rewards players with Kill Assists.
- Sound effects revised to consistently respect volumes set in options screen.
- You can now disable the weapon swap with mouse wheel in the options menu.
- Added specific message when players can't enter a match because of a VAC ban.
- Improved Quick-Match algorithm.
- Sunnsquare Mall collision reworked to prevent players from getting stuck on the ceiling in some locations.
- Crouching repeatedly will not prevent players from take hazard damages anymore, e.g: Gas chambers in Blackfield.
- Fixed weapon skins not showing in third person with dual wields.

I recommend buying it, as I think it's a fantastic bit of online fun. We play weekly matches in the community too and we never have trouble getting a game going.

That is a weird selection of countries. Looks like regional pricing issue, except for the fact that Lithuania, Estonia, and Latvia are EU countries that pay EU prices for Steam games, and have no special censorship laws like Germany.

I love how much the developers are listening and working on this game. i wish them nothing buy good luck and hope they get more players. player base issues are the only problem with this game, and that issue appears to be going away.

I bought the game but quickly got a refund. I like it a lot but there is a serious problem in the game. When you play a team based match and one team gets the lead - the other team can stay in the safe room and spam nades til time over. It happened many times in my brief time in the game. So I went back to deathmatch til a friend got the game and we tried team based games again and it was being done. Players camping out in the safe room and popping out to kill attackers with nades and going back in.

Perhaps a no camping penalty needs to be implemented.

When it comes to STEAM every FPS player is going to be playing the known top games:

TF2
CS:Go

Everything else is splintered.

Never had a problem finding a game, as soon as we join an empty server it fills up within minutes.

Hard to compete with the bigger ones for market though, especially since it's still in-development.

i never played team fortress though; and i think 2 hours cs:go. paladins was fun for a few hours.

i believe you but as a alinux gamer i am very skeptical what these numbers are saying.
storm united anyone? :-)

Outside of the issue I mentioned - What is keeping this game in the state it is in right now? How soon before full release?
