The two videos above give an idea of how the gameplay - so far - is. The second one gives a better idea of how busy the screen can be, but the game is more that shows. You can see the people spawning in those pods that really needs to be toned down 10x. When you escape from the pod parts from the pod go flying all over the place. And when people build thngs there is that giant glow that not only takes up space on the ground, btu the entire sky above it.
And a thing about the hawks - in WH they were all over the place. You knew where they were and they would come back ina bit if they were gone. From what I can see so far you have to gain enough of those orbs then build the station then take your hawk, and if somebody jacks your for it oh well,
if they do respawn its a good amount if time - I have never seen one respawn, but I had better things to do than wait around for it.
EDIT - I figured out that to get a hawk to deploy you must have orbs and then press a yellow button on the spawn point then one shows up. Same deal for jetpacks and jeeps.
Also two of the weapons I liked the most in WH almost seem worthless now - the sniper and rocket launcher. NOTE I have only played in small map CTF games. But I swear unless you get a headshot with the sniper rifle it will not kill the guy. And with the fast jerkey movment of the players it is almost impossible to get a good shot off. Plus there is a red line emitting from your rifle so the enemy can see EXACTLY where you are and easily pick you off. And I was a pro at sniper rifle in WH and I totally suck now lol. And the rocket launcher - lol it took me a few games to even see it was a rocket launcher haha. but with the layout of the maps I have been playing it was really hard to get a lock on the hawk before it went behind something out of view which made it hard.
