It's a great concept. Reminds me of Heroes and Generals. However the graphics at this stage seem a little underwhelming. I am guessing that is because they are using the same textures as is on their large vehicles on infantry that need a tonne more detail? I suppose it is a different engine though.

  Supposedly its the same engine.  The graphics are better than ARMA is generally and worse than HLL or the BoX.  And it has a pay-to-win subtext even in BETA

Yeah. That is to be expected with war thunder (gaijin) games. But it may keep the game alive beyond all other shooters. Which sometimes makes it worth the grind.

I've been playing Enlisted for the past couple of weeks and have been enjoying it so far.  The grind is monumental.  There is that Warthunderish pay to win meme in there. 

The gameplay is fun however as well as the gunplay.  I like the squads concept where you must equip each of your soldiers with gear and level them up.  Enlisted is not as realistic or complicated like HLL or PS but at the same time it's not arcadey like Call of Duty or Battlefield. 

I'm going to keep playing until I get to the point where the only way to progress any further is by using real money to unlock stuff.  At that point I'll drop the game like a hot potato just like I did with Warthunder. 

All that being said, Heroes & Generals is still my go to game for shooters.  I'll never get tired of that game and I've been playing it since 2012.

  There's definitely a weird coolness to Heros and Generals.  I guess it was the maps that got me down after a while.  Enlisted looks promising so I guess I'll see.

  I played on my lunch hour.  Must be a rough time for most people cuz my Avatar, Mengjiaomeng, was one of the top players.  Very strange.

I'm a sucker for shooters, so I'll give this a go at some point.

   I'm liking it.  Its sort of a mess, but fun to play.  It's good points could all be seen as bad: small maps, endless slaughter, very arcady, but in a sort of good way and even with only say 12 players on a side
the battlefield is full of troops (since each player fields 1 tank or 1 plane or 3-6 soldiers at a time and they just keep coming so about 400-500 casualties happen all told per battle).
