"A Solid Jump To Free-To-Play"
With this game moving to a FTP system, I finally found an opportunity to try it out once and for all. While the first few weeks were really fun, the consistency started to lessen as the season progressed. While new modes were added, very few were super fun and added much to the experience.
This season had a cool enough season pass, but the variety of game modes was really, really low. This made completing challenges a chore and many of the rounds were just unfun to play for many reasons still listed in my main review of the game. No doubt is this game easy to pick up, but there are such limited mechanics that matches end up playing out super predictably in one single factor - a lack of control being the reason you or others lose. Crossplay was an alright addition, though it feels sort of late with its implementation.
Besides what's listed above, there really wasn't much else that special about this season. It's a fine reboot for the game in a sort of way, but I see a lot of the community complaining about how the game is trending back towards the quality that plagued it during its earlier days. Unfortunately, I feel the same way despite finding this to be a fun enough season overall.
Final Verdict: 7/10 (Good)
