Reviews and Problems with Super Monday Night Combat

Summary: Core game mechanics like shooting, jumping, rolling don't work at all or consistently. Hell, some spells actually propel you further based on ping and framerate. If you shoot a low RoF weapon, there's a high chance it will jam and fire off thin air. This, along with a bunch of core game mechanics do not even work. Horribly finicky netcode. HL3 will come by the time the game gets updated. Heroes do not rotate.
Summary: This game is the equivalent of castrating yourself fifty times. The game is buggy, the matchmaking doesn't work, and the community it has is nonexistent. There's a huge disparity of skill caused by the lack of players and the amount of experience the experienced players have. Why is this a problem? No matchmaking. It's Uber Entertainment's self-fulfilling legacy of making all of their games flop. Please try it for a month.
Summary: Don't bother with SMNC unless you enjoy submitting yourself to loads of frustration. Despite the great premise everything about this game is frustrating and terrible. The matchmaking system is horrible. By appearance it randomly throws anyone in a match together. Every game consisted of a few people with months and months of experience destroying new players, and the rest of the teams filled out with the people that are getting destroyed by them.
Summary: It's a completely broken game. Let's ignore the fact that, for something so simple graphics wise, it's such an intensive resource hog, and the fact that matchmaking takes forever, there's also the issue of balance, the lack of pacing, the terrible matchmaking, the inability to replace leavers/rage quitters, and the atrocious matchmaking. I've so far played almost 200 games, and not ONCE have i played a "good game".
Summary: They did terrible changes. It is like Moba with tower defense. Sound good right? It's just that the implementation is bad. The pace is slow, the weapons are slow. The game just drags on and on in this monotous and boring pace. It is free to play so you might check it out. But beware of people that don't know how to play. What's even worse there is "no drop in drop out".
Summary: Super MNC's gameplay gets an 8/10. There are balance issues, mechanics issues (too much of a focus on grappling, for example), and frequent physics issues that detract, but they're not the real problems the game faces. I won't discuss the gameplay much because the it's mostly fine. If you want to try the game, do it - it's free. Please watch a few intro videos on Youtube before jumping in to get an idea of all the mechanics and a general overview of strategy.
Summary: When this game came out it was smoking hot, Now a few weeks in it is packed with aimbotters, and speed hackers worse then APB:Reloaded. Matchmaking is by far the worst i have seen in a game to date. Just a tip, If you catch lag on loading screen someone is aimbotting, or speed hacking. Solve the three problems i have listed and you have one hot game.
Summary: One of my favorite games now. It's brand new and does need some development time but that is the nature of a new MOBA. That actual game play is incredibly fun but the learning curve is steep. I highly recommend trying out SMNC for yourself. It is free to play after all.
Summary: SMNC feels very similar to the original Monday Night Combat, without many improvements, and with a most of the same problems. In fact, SMNC feels slower and more of a snowball game than the first despite simplifying everything.
Summary: Alright. Imagine the original MNC: A nice, casual blend of third person shooting and tower defense mechanics. Now imagine they lowered the amount of damage you do, increased the health of everything, and made turret positioning and upgrading preset. No tower defense for us. So, do you like shooting at predictable, slow moving targets with an endless rain of no damage "bullets"? I'm proud of you. But wait, there are more characters to play as!
