  • Voted No, although I think your idea has potential. Reading between the lines I see this as an initiative to overcome one of the fundamental problems that Toxikk has, which is the lack of players.

    But I don't think opening up a free edition (based on your current plans) is the best way to go about it.

    Steam is filled with millions of really bad players, I suspect many of them are probably young kids, that will play your game because it is free. They will get owned hard, so much that they will do everything they can, out of spite, to rubbish your game, be it a negative review, or comments etc. And then they will quit, but what they leave behind will have a negative impression of the game that isn't deserved. Toxic in other words ;)

    A better idea I think, would be to offer a demo, against bots, with 2 maps, one for the vehicle modes, and one to show off the other modes. Castello would be my choice, it looks amazing, and offers AD and DM modes, and also the snowy map for vehicles (can't remember it's name) so they can see a larger map with more players and vehicles.

    Of course, that wont provide enough players to fill servers up on day one, but it will be enough of a taster to tempt people into buying the game, without having to suffer the humilation of being owned by veteran arena FPS players, and will give them a chance to learn the weapons and hone their early skills (movement, sensitivity, keybinds etc).

    As for the issue of day one players you could offer a free 3-4 days where anyone can play (make sure you lock the Steam reviews though so free players can't leave a review), and make sure they are aware of the demo version if they want to have fun. Oh, and release the demo version a week earlier, and advertise it as best you can. That way interested players can get to grips with weapons BEFORE the free weekend etc.

    Just some thoughts.

  • If matchmaking properly puts those freebies in low SC locked servers, this should not be a problem. The most important purpose of SC is to avoid these situations where less experienced players get "owned hard".
