WAR Siege Video 1.3.2

As I mentioned in the last post, I took 60 gig worth of video from last nights PTS event.  I think this does a good job of showing just how far WAR's performance has come.  My graphics were set to Balanced and I was using Fraps to record.  Over 250 players participated and still the video came out pretty good.  Check it out after the break.

NOTE: Part 2 is up!

If you manage to watch the video until the end, you will see Order get trounced.  Pretty creative on their part, thankfully it was only on PTS.  Not all of the graphic effects fire when in a high traffic situation.  This is probably for the best, as it would quickly overwhelm the client.

Direct Link.

At times, it felt like we were on a trampoline because the siege weapons were knocking us around.  This is a known bug which will hopefully be fixed before the patch goes live.  Not that is a big deal, who can afford those Ordinance weapons?

I have another video of Order defending, hopefully I'll get that up soon.

EDIT:  Here are the stats for the recording system...

Windows 7 x64
2.66ghz Quad Core
4gb RAM
8800GT video card
7200 rpm HD for game
128gb SSD for Fraps output
