    Ya, the game does not hand hold newbies at all. They'll need to put in a practice mode like they did in Savage 2. If you want to practice, I'd just suggest you start a private online game and start it with just you in it. Or we could arrange a Phoronix reader's match

    phoronix readers match would be cool, i played a little, but ultamately got annoyed with people whining at me for sucking. i do, but i was playing all "noobs only" matches and have never played a game of this kind before...

    some sort of single player with bots would be a great idea - to let people get a grasp of the game first.

    He's right, a beta without directions is bad. In a beta you have to tell people "what" they have to test. It's not just "play and look". At last any professional and worthwhile Beta test contains directions. After all it's for the developers to iron out problems not for players to play it first.

    most of us believe beta means free early access.

    Atm, the testing is mainly for the devs to stress test the server code.

    If you are unsure about whats going on, jump on the HoN League channel (IIRC) they are pro's to this game type and are willing to help newcomers with guidance and matches.

    What is the goal of the game ?
    How does it play ?

    EDIT : I should add that a Phoronix readers' match would be cool ! Michael, could you setup a server ?

    Its too bad there isn't a tutorial in the game (yet hopefully), I could had used one, but I don't need it now. What doesn't help though is that 2 out of the 3 games I've played already have consisted of jerks that are neither newbie friendly in a noob only game, or are very understanding. But if you guys want to get a game together we could organize one in #phoronix on irc.freenode.net or plan one on a certain date and time.
