Didnt they say that if you shoot the hologram the shooter gets pinged like a lion scan? So yeah just put a hologram at a window and then have someone snipe them from elsewhere.

Wondering how convincing they are going to make them, it seems like the type of ability that either is amazing or completely poo poo. But then, Siege requires such twitch reflexes to put someone down that you can't really spare the time to check either.

That's his remote controlled turret.
It has a "shell mode" which makes it bullet proof when not active.

I mean considering I (playing with outlines off) regularly shoot and kill my own teammates when they scare me coming into my FoV, I suspect I'll waste a lot of bullets on holos

Chances are it's going to be something you have to preplace. I imagine alibi's ability will essentially spawn a hologram based of your current position when activated. So if you're peeking around a corner, hit middle mouse, you'll spawn a hologram that will be peeking in the same direction. It'd limit its ability to use offensively on the fly, while not being crazy like hologram in Titanfall 2 is when it comes to bamboozles. It'll definitely make her one of the best spawnpeekers which I'm not looking forward to, but it seems like it'll be fairly balanced yet powerful given how the rest of the game is. The only place it could really be messed up is if she gets too many charges, but I imagine it'll probably be 3 charges based off other operators. If they give her an acog though, she's going to be ridiculous at lower levels for a while.

So as one of those aforementioned scrub noobs.

How is this game? Do I need to buy anything else, or is the $20 pack going to get me access to everything. I see a year 3 pack, does that just real money me the new operators or can I still unlock them in game for Clancy bucks or whatever.

Is that coop mode they were talking about prior still in?

How rough is to to learn?

Is the PC version still populated? Is it full of hackers?

DO NOT BUY THE STARTER EDITION UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES

The co op mode is gone other than terrorist hunt, which is you and some friends run around a map and kill terrorists.

Buying any version of the game (that isn't the Starter Edition, which again I stress DO NOT BUY) gets you the base 20 operators that originally came with the game unlocked. Whenever an operator is unlocked you get all their guns, attachments, and gadgets (things like Barbed Wire or Shields or C4 or w/e)

All the other operators since then can be bought with in game currency if you desire although I find the season passes to be a very good value.

The learning curve is very high.

All platforms have very healthy player populations.

The PC version has hackers but they are not prevalent and BattleEye gets them eventually.

To elaborate, it's very rough to learn but this isn't For Honor so you'll have plenty of other idiots to play against most of the time. You will most likely get stomped for your first 200 hours though, not to say you won't have any fun doing it unless you're a very competitive person. After 500 hours you'll probably be able to hold your own.

Siege is the 4th most played game on Steam quite regularly so I'd say that it's indeed quite populated.

This doesn't include the uPlay players either.

As far as being a new player; FPS skills certainly help but map and operator knowledge are king. Those will come with time as you play. I'm old and my reflexes aren't the same but I've managed to climb to the third highest rank and have even gotten some aces in my time. Once you learn where people's heads are going to be and which hallway they're likely to come down, you have the advantage.

Communication and droning are also important, and is what can turn a bunch of strangers into a well oiled machine if they talk and know where the enemy team is.
