A number of popular Twitch streamers have dedicated their channels to broadcast new Survival MMO Atlas – but have been far from impressed.
After several long delays to the game's launch, and when players couldn't get past the login screen when it was finally launched, Atlas was on a bad start.
When the players finally got into the game, it didn't get much better, as a lot of errors and glitches are currently bothering the game, as well as hidden menus copied directly from Ark.

The sheet menu discovered in Atlas.
Sheet: Survival Evolved is made of the same development team, and because of the similarities and this hidden menu, players are convinced that Atlas was originally meant to be a DLC of some kind for Ark.
Make matters worse if there is promotional material claiming that 40,000 players would be on a server, including that which would not be met.
Popular Twitch streamer LIRIK had a theory of what happened to the marketing debacle, says "There must have been miscommunication where dev just wondered about 40,000 players, and the guy who made the trailer misheard him, and then actually put it in trailer. "
LIRIK was not the only unfortunate Atlas player either, as 76% of the reviews are negative.
Another popular streamer, Jaryd & # 39; Summit1g & # 39; Lazar, who had been playing the game for hours on his Twitch stream, said, "It's the most boring game on the planet. […] It's fucking sheet of paper, with water between the islands."
After Having given up, he explained on Twitter that he had also been taken in by the trailer and that it was the "worst game of 2018" for him.  I feel like I was jebaited by a big trailer and got ARK w / water between the islands. Worst game of 2k18 for me. ] Sorry.

LIRIK made similar complaints after disclosing the game itself and sent to Twitter to vent his frustrations.
He said the "hype was more exciting than the game" before explaining that it was really a missed opportunity for the developers, as players shout for a good game in this genre.
Atlas shows that people are bloodthirsty for a Functional, large scale, pvp / pve, optimized multiplayer game on PC despite the royal craze of the game.
No Dev has delivered yet.

Many players are angry at what they see as misleading advertising, with followers and blurring that gives a false sense of how the game would play.
Of course, video game trailers and marketing always exaggerate the end product to a degree, but in the case of Atlas, exaggerated was more egregious.
