From all the TTK debates and stuff going on in the forums it seems like there are two schools of thought here:
(1) Sandstorm should basically be exactly like Ins2, except now that its on a new engine it'll look better and have a few new features. It should play the same as Ins2.
(2) Sandstorm is its own game that introduces new mechanics and a different, more realistic gameplay feel than ins2, so therefore it should play differently and do things differently.
I came into Sandstorm with the second notion, and was actually kind of surprised that some people just wanted an Ins2 clone. Am I on the minority side of the opinion here?
