Well if he really wants to learn first hand he needs to play AI (get a feel of the maps and the role) then playing against players won’t be so horrifying (unless you have a horrible Medic/Support/Assault).
To be honest though one section of a company shouldn’t put the others on hold BUT when new content is released it tends to cause more bugs and sometimes involve OP setups with a game like this.
Also with a game this complicated it’s bound to have issues all over the place and in numerous forms. While it is impossible these days to make a bug free game I must say that most companies back in the day did the smart thing and made games that were bug free upon release (due to lack of internet and updates) with extensive testing. Sure it’s unfair to make such a comparison between games of today and back when 2D images were the shiz due to the significant difference between them (as we see them today) but back then I’m sure game makers were like “How the hell do we get him to jump and break stuff by landing on them?” because it was something new.
Not sure where I’m going with this cuz it’s late and crap but really though… I’m as pissed as anyone else is about these bugs but it is to be expected these days with ANY new game. Frankly we just have to deal with it like the devs deal with our constant whining where the only pacifier comes in the form of a Nerf to anyone’s most hated character, a fix to the solution or free stuff. Can’t really win anywhere with everyone except the most difficult thing to do.
Got problems? Cool! So do I and everyone else that has ever lived! Just pass the time until the thing that will satisfy you finally comes along… weird things not included here.
