1. this game is beyond fun. you cant messure how fun this game is
2.the online is dieing but it dosnt look like itll be compleatly dead any time soon
3. there is next to no lag now. the only way to get lag is if you internet speed sucks
4. id say its balanced now
so yeah buy it
save your money dude the game has to many problems you cant even get into a match. i would only advise getting this game used for 10 dollars and even then you would have to buy online access which would be 20 and not even worth it. plus the trophys dont work. theres way to much stuff wrong with this game youll be pulling your hair out over it. the game doesnt suck, but it also doesnt work right. plus everyone plays the same map over and over and the same vehicles there is no variety at all.
