Part 1: First thing you get in the beta is beta news feeds and access to beta forums. The menus are really nice and you get a fair amount of choices in the settings.

Part 2: this game is Awesome! It's like halo meets WH with RTS and epicness. Spawned in a drop pod and crushed a mech to bits!!

My beta tips so you can start owning straight away:

Find Blue rift barrels, and setup bases near them(spawn pods) This will allow you to quickly gain rift early in the game.

 

Get Hawked up! The hawk is still the most powerfull vehical in the game, but G2a has got alot more effective. Doging is a pain. Try to dive bomb everyone for easy kills, you can fly over bases which are heavily populated with beam turrets if you fly eratically enough.

Rifles deal heavier damage than before, use caution when a ground troop has two or more auto turrets if you're in  walker mode

Summary, make bases and get hawks, to supress the enemy noob forces.

change your settings streight away,

From Bigfitch1012

 

Okay I played this tonight for an hour or so and here are my initial thoughts:

Whichever lowlife mother*****er who came up with the idea of "normal flight" needs to undergo a few rounds of electroshock...just to get him back to the realm of reality. Normal flight in Warhawk was designed so that a monkey of average intelligence could pilot a plane. Normal flight in Starhawk is designed so that ONLY monkeys of average intelligence can pilot a plane. Seriously, it's impossible to fly without looking like a complete and utter retard.

Proflight is very similar to WH offensively. Defensively, we revert back to retardation. To dodge missiles, it's kind of a key combo. Like L3+X is what I used. Tap it to noob spin. No health bar coupled with a dark setting makes it roughly impossible to determine exactly how well your dodge worked until you are literally one "swarm" away from death. Furthermore, you can't scrub missiles through aerial maneuvers that are attached to the dodge combos (which I must add are completely disorienting) and boosting is all *****ed up. You've got 3 speeds. L2 to airbrake, regular, and R2 to afterburners. So I'm so used to holding R2 all the time, I ran out of boost basically instantly. Locking missiles seems okay. There was an option I had to check to make it less frustratingly ass backwards...you'll figure it out. We have two air weapons available...swarms and homings. Not sure on damage because it's so *****ing dark, I can't tell if my missiles are hitting, and with no damage bar... even if I could see, I wouldn't know how effective they are. Essentially, once you learn to fly pro, and use the dodge combos effectively, you've plateaued. I flew pro for a little back in the day, started up again very recently. I'll have flight mastered as it stands right now in a few days. Which is disappointing, but considering the reports so far...I'd imagine some changes will be made due to the overwhelming amount of nerd whining that I will contribute to full force.

Ground is fun. Zoom down scope, no auto locks, and sprint are all examples of improvements. No health bar is crap. It's COD style...so running behind ***** and crouching is effective when getting shot. You can evade for a while, pop back out, and you're owning again. No health pick ups on the ground. I'm not pleased about that, but that's subjective. Jeeps are the same. Using the planes to stomp around transformer style I haven't tried yet. Charlie likes doing that. Everytime I got a hawk, i was more concerned with flight testing it...not stomping facebook noobs lol.

All said and done...there's a bunch of ***** I'd like to see changed. But as is..with the promise of more ***** on its way...I'd buy the game and play it. Doubtful as long as Warhawk tho.

Yeah, that pretty much sums up the bad parts of flight. We'll see if we can get them to change some of it through the forum hopfully.

dodging on pro flight not as good as WH...warning...warning...engaing...angaing booom i get hit and i do the turns like i do on warhawk that normaly loses missles and rocket launchs but its something we gotta learn lol.. sniper is awesome 2 shot kill unless its headshot no scoping not as easy but easy when you can do it scope is prob the more commen thing people will do now i bet i end 1v1 this guy with both had snipers but he was scoping lol i can see he wasnt aiming as good so up close no scoping is recommend not scoping lol rift is awesome BUT this happen to me before i raged i used 4 rifts to build my hawk an as soon as i do some other guy jobs and takes it :L (*****) lol

flight is fun but not many people are doing it, like i was in a sevr only me jeremy and some other guy were flying and the other team where camping with rocket launchers building beam cannons i think its called lol

but its a great game gets better each time all fun with different people build and battle changes everything and the out come cant wait for zones now hopefully in the new update it will let us plays zone :)
