Since the NDA dropped I can chime in as a alpha player. I recently went through the process to get a Microsoft account and start playing again, and the game pacing is SO much better now (helps that I can play 24/7 nstead of specific times now, too). I really hope they can pull through this, game is good and should be able to carve a slice of the “character-based not-a-MOBA shooter” pie if it doesn’t get fumbled in the handling.
