I'm having a blast with the online so far. After 600+ hours on Warhawk I was hesitant to this build and battle but I love it. The only problem is team mates. Right when it starts people will build duplicate unnecessary structures and it becomes a cluster Fuck. I was in a game last night with about 5 people talking and the team work and organization helped a lot and we won pretty easily. Is there a CAG clan? I'd join since this game is best played with people working together and talking.

The trophy list doesn't look great for an MP game, as there are 100 win trophies for almost every gametype in the game along with a 1,000 kill trophy. I got the deadeye trophy for a 2,500+ ft sniper kill in my first full match, so I can probably get the easier trophies.

I still love the way Dylan Jobe's team handles servers and server browsers that nobody else really seems to be able to match. I'm looking forward to getting my rhythm down in zones matches with the proximity mines.

If you're up for multiplayer, tonight's TNT at GiantBomb is Starhawk, so send a friend request to GiantBombing and you'll be invited to play when it starts at 7 PM ET/4 PM PT.

Talking to people,man I'm not into that. And I been seeing a lot of base rape too.Hawks destroy from above and you can't do much if they keep destroying your bunkers.My other complaint no health bars on vehicles,turrets or structures.Not into this game.

I'm really starting to enjoy this game. It's different from the standard online shooter but I like it. I gave Warhawk a try when that first came out but for some reason I didn't care too much for it. I still don't have much an idea of what to do but feel free to add me to your friendlist if you're playing this. PSN id: JetTone.

I know I had you in at least a few games. Dunno if that was with freaky and QiG or not lol. Did not make the connection. But I will add you when I hop on.

I still really think the hawks have way too much power. I can understand them taking you out with one shot if you are on a jet bike. but when they can take you out with one shot before you even know whats going on when you are in a TANK... and then it take you 3 or 4 shots to kill that same hawk when they are ont he ground... something is majorly wrong.

And is it just me or can you not lock onto hawks and jetpacks with the rocket launcher?

Rocket launchers lock on to hawks just fine. Make sure you're holding down R1 to do that and not just L1.

I believe you could. Hold R1 with the rocket launcher equipped. It works only on hawks and jetpacks only while they're in flight.

Looking for CAGers or people who use there mics at all for this game. It is insanely fun when people communicate but that is a long shot. I just picked up a pair of astro a40s I need to put them to good use :D

I'm gonna add a couple of you fools to my friends list, as I just got a PS3 and need some peeps to frag.

Don't know if I'll really be playing this beta that much, but maybe we could get a private CAG match together?

Wow, surprised you finally got a PS3. :D

I'm the fence with this game, I played the beta, and while was blown away by the graphics and set pieces, I found it really hard to get any kills. Was I playing it wrong, I liked the air support drop in stuff, but the beta really didn't give ya any tutorial at all?

So should I get it? Or wait for a drop? That GameStop limited edition looks cool. Since its auto upgrade with first shipment, mine still has many.

Thanks guys.

Loving the MP on this game. But playing alone sucks (this is a PS3 problem, since this never happens to me on 360 games), no coordination/communication.

If you got a group add me. I can't play next week since I'm away, but I do play a day or two during the weekdays. (I'm also a Warhawk "vet", so I know how to defend a spot well, but again, its a team game, can't take out 3 tanks alone)

Now playing: Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare (XB1), Dark Souls (PC), Starcraft 2 (PC), Infamous: Second Son (PS4), Dead Rising 3 (XB1), Rouge Legacy (PSV), Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition (PS4).

:lol: I got an official PSN message last night from Sony with a code for two pieces of DLC(one for 'paintjobs' for vehicles in Starhawk based on Warhawk vehicles, the other for some DLC levels or whatever) thanking me for 'playing the beta'(which I never did).

Chances are it's going up on my TL of codes, since I'll probably start playing this once it drops to $10-15 used like I did with Warhawk and I don't really see myself playing anything but the basic game.:booty:

The game is lacking documentation. I had the hardest time trying to figure out how to get a 2 player co-op multiplayer going, but I finally figured that out. As I am ranking it up says I am increasing my skill list and I see a spot for the skills but it's often grayed out so I can't see what I can do with it. I guess I just need to play it more. The controls for the game itself are fine, but there is definitely a learning curve to the rest.

I REALLY REALLY want to like this game but I just have no idea what the hell is going on. I've played through about half of the "campaign". Every time I jump into a game my team is just getting destroyed or I can't even break out of my hatch without having a Hawk ripping me apart. I'm assuming having a mic and working with a team is the only way this game is fun, otherwise it sucks. Is this correct? Like I said I really want to like this game but I feel like I'm wasting time after every multiplayer match I try.

I haven't played in the last few days but that was happening to me too. The other team would just steamroll whatever team I was on. Hopefully things will be much better with the CAG clan since it's hard to have fun when you're losing and dying within seconds of spawning each time.

I have been seeing lots of good things going on in recent gameplay that I was surprised to see, but in a good way. But I think the thing that stuck out the most is that arms heal structures also. I thought they just fixed vehicles but I was surprised to find out the heal everything. Some teammates put an arm in the middle of a shield and beam turrets and that combo lasted a long time. I was surprised how well it worked. Granted this requires TEAM WORK since these things take a good amount of rift. But if you are working as a team this could be a strong line of attack. And putting more than one arm also works and just helps to keep everything going that much longer.

And for the skills points - you have to be in a game to get into that menu - stupid if you ask me but oh well.

edit - and to prevent getting raped by the over powered hawks... play a ground pounder game. So much more fun (unless you are getting raped by tanks, but they are easier to take down than hawks are)

I also did not know that. That's amazing... Going to start doing that to any shields I built, those things are way to easy to destroy. Same with the tank station. :)

Yeah, using the repair arm next to a wall that is constantly attacked is an awesome combo. I discovered it's usefulness in the SP.

Here's something I saw the other team doing and I thought it was a great idea. They would land their Hawks on floating rocks and cliffs up high and build a beam/flak turret and then an arm next to it to keep repairing it. They had a bunch and it was a great tactic and annoying as hell flying that round lol.

Update 1.02 is out now:

Very, *VERY* early this morning at 4am Central time we performed world-wide server maintenance and deployed a new patch for Starhawk. The patch is focused on resolving the most common crashes as well as providing a new automatic system of recording any network errors that players encounter. There were however a few other things that were included in the patch so here's the full list:

Fixed for the prominent Crashes & Locks
Added automated network disconnect error-reporting
Fixed missing sound FX for when missiles are dodged
Fixed XP display for players already at the first-tier level cap of 50
Fixed Server-List so it can scroll properly and display the full-set of global games
Fixed texture paging bug that sometimes caused a blank Uplink
Fixed the Sweet-Tooth's awesome butcher's blade accessory
Fixed the bug causing only 4 players to be allowed into your Homeworld
Fixed bug that caused the Clan Leader board to scroll incorrectly
Fixed Server-List filter on full games to work properly

As we've mentioned before, the team here at LightBox Interactive is working on another game balance update and we'll be providing you the list of all of the changes next week! We're also hearing our community "Loud & Clear" on our voice issues. The team at LightBox Interactive has spent many days debugging what the issue is and we've relayed that information to our Network team at SONY. They are currently investigating a fix and we'll be sure to keep you all posted!

We are very thankful of our community's patience and we are fully committed to making sure the Starhawk experience continues to improve with Updates and Patches as well as grow with FREE downloadable maps!
