Look, I really, really want to like DeFormers. From the first trailers played on GSTV up until I saw the Limited Edition on my shelf, it's a game I've been looking forward to for a long time.
I'm happy that the Server issues have been addressed, but after FINALLY being able to play the game, I saw first hand what a lot of people are saying.
Formball is broken.
I'm constantly telling customers/friends that DeFormers can be compared to Rocket League, but now having played it, it's more like a game of keep away with goals at either end.
Being able to grab the ball and toss it to teammates/into the goal is a great idea, but being able to grab the ball and just bring it half way across the field is just over-powered, and for new players like me (Literally the only game I have been able to play) it's something that can't be overcome.
Above is a 2x speed video of the only match I have been able to play so far. Instantly my team is decimated by a "skilled" player, who literally only grabs the ball and runs it into our goal.
That's not the only issue in the video, as I once fell through the map, and after one of the opposing players on the other team disconnected and the second round started, MY teammate was now on the winning team. The match went from frustrating to impossible.
Please RaD, address this feature of Formball. It's a mode I was really looking forward to, but will not play because of this over-powered tactic. It's a shame that 1/3rd of the game is completely uninviting to new players.
