    Trade up programs are usually limited to 90 days after purchase of the original card.


    I registered but it still says it is an "upcoming promotion."

    I can't find any servers and there's no way to host a server. It is basically useless. :(

    It gets better at night. Although there are never more than 3 or 4 rooms with players(for me) there's enough to play a couple of matches.
    Also, prepare to be very frustrated when you get killed repeatedly without knowing where the hell they are :laugh:
    One advice: never fly around far from the ground and objects to hide. It's a game with A LOT of camping. AT least that's what I do :cool:

    There's no way to host? If they were dedicated servers, you'd think they would be running 24/7.

    I thought there wasn't, but in the "tools" section of Steam there's the dedicated server. Honestly don't know why there aren't more players and servers. I hope it gets better when they release the dlc they've been working on(4 new maps, I believe).

    Just another heads up:
    There are more Shattered Horizon keys coming soon:

    [​IMG]

    AND better yet, those fine folks at Futuremark are giving out some free stuff, so there is an extra incentive for playing:

    [​IMG]

    From 22Feb-22March we just have to play for the chance of winning motherboards, power supplies, ram sticks and fans.
    And I say again: the game is fun and different from everything(in a good way). It's really a shame that not many people play it actively... Come on, give it a try :toast:

    Subscribe to this thread, and I'll post when I see the giveaway has started. Last time it took a couple of days for the keys to go, so maybe you can get one!

    No. When the keys are available you'll have to click the image/message to enter the giveaway. Then you'll get a key on your email. That's it :cool:

    No single player, or game mode where you can play against AI. They say it's too difficult to implement a "smart" AI that behaves well in a 360 degree scenario.

    And I don't really know how many promotions they have, because I only registered my card probably a year ago, give or take, but they don't seem to have that many games available. The last 3 or 4 giveaways have been Shattered Horizon keys and Bumptop Pro keys. So those 5 promotions you're given in a year are probably enough to get everything they have.

    Seems to be working now. At least, the loop is over.
    Hope this is it :laugh:
