Still not convinced to play the game?

The description listed above may have not yet convinced you to play the game. If so, imagine you’re logging to the server which has 5 o’clock AM. It’s a team match. You’re joining the red one (the other one is green; not classic blue since police owns this color). There’s not much traffic since it’s night. You and your pals find cars on car park, steal them, turn on headlights, move around the district to find some weapons and finally head for green flag. Your team is arriving at place. You fortunately avoid few rockets shot on you, get off the car, use lighting-up electro-gun to shock few enemies, steal flag, get back to car and immediately fall back, once again avoiding rocket shot on you. You, escorted by your pals, are running away by highway. The enemy team is just after, shooting on you with AK-47 from their cars. Cars of your team are already damaged a bit and you don’t have headlights to light-up your way. Fortunately there are street lamps so you don’t need the headlights that much. You’re going that highway and… BOOM! Your friend to the right has been shot with rocket launcher from the green team guys forming a blockade on the street. At once you and your pals get out off the cars – a great shootout begins. You’re outnumbered (your team’s killed players respawn at some distance from the place of shooting). There are Molotov cocktails flying all around the place. You think you won’t be able to carry the flag, but suddenly police comes out after green team members. You’re getting the occasion, throw few smoke grenades, enter the car and bypass the police and green team, successfully driving enemy’s flag to yours. You made it. Your team is leading 1:0 – this is just the beginning of the match.
