    Is anyone else playing this right now?

    I'm only asking since its really filling the void left by a lack of Big Crunch at the moment, and if it were possible it might be nice to get a ranked team or two playing. Even if that's too much of a stretch, a possible meet for an hour or so between us BBTactics guys on it might make for a fun afternoon/ evening.

    Been playing it a lot on the last few weekends. Way too fun and has that "Just 1 more game" sort of feel to it that can keep you playing way longer than you should.

    I'd be up for playing with some others from here.

    I've been playing a bit and would be up for playing with other NA folks. I've tried playing on the Euro servers and it didn't play too well.

    Looks manic and messy, is it actually fun?

    It is fast paced, but I wouldn't call it messy. With 8 players it can get a bit chaotic, but I think most people play 2v2 or 3v3 for "serious" games.

    And yes, it is a lot of fun.

    Eh, I prefer the manic 8 player games, since you can actually have rolling keepers without it negatively affecting your attacking side, but yeah, I'd agree that 3v3 is probably the best for "serious" games.

    As for it being fun, it's scrappy playground football at its finest for the most part, only you're playing in cars and you can potentially kill opponents, forcing them to reset which takes them out of the action for anywhere between a few seconds, if they died near their goal, to potentially a good fifteen seconds, if they died near your own. Which appeals to me on so many levels.
