Got to play tonight and it was awesome!

Lots of fun to play and try out different strategies. I think I played on three different levels.

Only got to try two of the four weapons (mainly because I started playing and was having so much fun I didn't think to try something else until about 15 minutes to go).

Had zero connection issues until the last couple of minutes, but I'm pretty sure that was because they started turning off the servers. The rest of the time had zero lag and zero disconnects.

Probably won't get to play again tomorrow, but I will definitely be getting the game later this month!
