    Nope. It's still multiplayer.

    No, not really. I actually found 7 Days while looking for alternatives. They made the gameplay a bit more palatable than it was before, but it's still annoying that you have to listen to some other player breathing heavily into the mic whenever you're near other people. Also the cash shop is only getting more and more egregious.

    I'd avoid it if I were you, unless you like ads for overpriced garbage being waved in your face while you try to play a mediocre game. 7D2D is what Fallout 76 wishes it could be.

    Don't bother with that game, played it recently on free week, its as terrible and unsalvagable as the memes say.
    That game does not have any future for using old engine alone. Fallout 4 bug and glitch galore was acceptable, because there was interesting story and characters behind it, 76 doesn't have any of that and it literally feels like you're following footsteps of actual fallout protagonist and cleaning behind him(which IS the "story" of 76).

    Yeah, there are plenty of other fish in the sea but I am almost ready to go back to 7days. There are so many prefabs that never have been built and someone has to create them, right?^^ A few days ago, I saw an inspiring screenshot of a warship on steam and now I want to build one too.

    watch the developers stream. Their dull faces during the game do not inspire the belief that A18 will be much better than A17

    They're software developers, programmers and artists, not silver-tongued marketing drones. Not exactly a population known for their extraversion and presentation skills (and I say that with love and respect).

    Just because they're uncomfortable being on camera (and perhaps revealing their real names and faces) doesn't mean they lack enthusiasm for their game.

    Iíve tried talking while playing when doing a video and I canít do it. Props to content creators who can walk and chew gum at the same time.

    In every video Iíve ever done Iíve had to go back and do a voice over narration after the fact. Iím either concentrating on playing or Iím talking in an upbeat personable manner with a minimal amount of ďuuuummmmĒs but never together.

    My face is probably pretty blank too. Lol.

    Yes, i do understand that.

    Well...so.....then, perhaps i was led to this idea the general concept of the a17-a18. It must have affected me. It affected my overall perception of this "stream".
    I've seen "streams/video presentation" from other developers before, and i can see enthusiasm through shyness.
    But in this stream - it seemed to me that they did not know what to do in this game.

    Just be honest with yourself - and you will understand everything

    *******************************************

    Oh yeah, I'm the only one, right? All the others are happy with innovations.
    Just don't pay any attention to me, i'm all alone . Married to the past, and unable to accept the new.

    You guys know what? The main thing that in all this you were right, and not me - and then all will be well.

    I'd imagine all the talking would prevent you from hearing the audio clues that you are being stalked. Time and time again I've heard it while a streamer was talking and soon after *thump*.

    Pretty much pure tower defense and a ton of fun. Death ended the game and you got a score for days survived and zombies killed.

    Perfect game mode for when you were waiting for the next alpha and not wanting to start a long term survival game.
    Probably been mentioned before, but Gnamod exists and is recently updated. . Sort of the same but in a better way... In any case I'm not at all hyped for A18, afterall MM had all the same superlatives on A17. "Best alpha ever. So well balanced and I love it" sort of thing...

    Seems like most here have short memory. Hope I'm wrong though.

    Any frustration can be easily avoided by not reading the dev. diary and not watching any of TFP's streams/videos.

    I can totally see how TFP gives the impression at first glance of being rudderless.
    That's some good PR.
