    I've not used either yet. On a huge pathfinder/infiltrator binge at the moment.

    I went back to the Juggernaut and suddenly I'm embarrassing mediums with the Spinfusor mkd. Last game I even reflex shot a light and scored first blood.

    >___> This is going to cause me a giant problem in the future.

    Just nailed a flag carrier with a direct crossbow hit from miles away, whilst I was recording. Ahah.

    I really think this is one of the better free to play FPS out, and one of the better multiplayer FPS in general. It has a learning curve, but that will decrease as the game moves into open play as the game is populated with a smaller proportion of old school tribes players. And it has great teamwork, better than the so called "military shooters".

    Also, just arced a perfect shot onto a flag stand and nearly blew up the capper as he went into the flag stand. It was on the blue-ice map with the big hills(>__>). He died two seconds later to someone's SMG.

    How's it doing since the beta? I found it all a bit cluster fucky. Have they refined the class system at all?

    Yes - it's down to 9 classes now. A few of them got merged, and loadouts have been introduced, so there's unlockable weapons for each class. Some are totally new, whilst other unlocks are the stuff that old classes used to have - for example the crossbow and jump pack the jumper used to have are now unlocks for the pathfinder class, alongside stuff like the MIRV launcher which is new, and so on.

    Recentish changes have been the removal of most hitscan weapons so that they are projectile base, making the maps a little hillier and lots of other tweaks. Perks are now purchased with XP too, and can be upgraded, and once purchased are available for all classes.

    I'm expecting to see an infiltrator nerf soon actually. Inf capping is banned in most competitive games at the moment, Hi-Rez should be making it so cloaked players are more visible at high speeds I believe.

    EDIT: Oh, and the cost of unlocking new classes is far lower now as well, so there's a huge variety of classes in every match now, rather than just soldiers and rangers (who don't exist anymore anyway).

    Well, rangers exist but soldiers only kind of exist. gogo thumper/AR.

    But yeah game is much better than beta. I've had tons of fun on my Raider and Jug.

    It should take you 2-3 days of active play to unlock a new class, and you start with three I think.

    Open Beta starts soon. I wonder if they'll refund XP and give double gold back again?

    I think they are just removing beta keys in this release. Ah well, if they refund everything I'll be more intelligent with how I spend mah points, which would be nice.

    edit: New CTF map(I might as well have said "new map") is pretty good. Other than the fact it is impossible to dislodge people from your generator room. Too big, you can't just pin someone with explosives and be done with it. The big change to bella omega is similar.

    edit 2: New CTF map is kinda grinding my gears. The stupid cap is immune to call-ins, and all the turrets are beneath it. but the turrets are elevated so you can't just fusion mortar them or raider them well. The only way to shut them off is to go into that genny room, in which there are 6+ turrets and 3+ engies with thumpers. It comes down to clearing their cap of stuff in raider suicide runs and cappers doing loops. really quite stupid.

    Not many reviews on Metacritic yet but it seems to be doing well. I am glad that that is the case!

    The technician is considered to be overpowered by many. I used to get cussed out all the time when playing as one. I have since stopped and am exploring the other classes now.

    How would what I said lead you to believe that I work at Hi-Rez? :confused:
