Yeah, this is the first 'battle royale' type game I've given any attention to, but I don't think it should be grouped with other games of that genre(?).
It's mostly just a stupid fun game not meant to be taken too seriously, with a simple pick-up-and-play approach focused on putting you immediately in the action, quick turnover between games, and a lot of RNG mechanics meant to create chaos and kinda even the playing field. All these qualities remind me a lot of Mario Kart and why that's so addictive and fun.
Hopefully this game keeps a steady player base past the first season, cause I can see myself coming back often enough, just to have a break from other stuff.
