    waaaaaaaaaat? again? I shouldn't complain but fuck, it's not that long since the last one, and that caused massive balance shifts (as did the triple SC day). Oh well, milk it for all it's worth lol.

    Red - you did fine chap. Don't worry about dying a lot, everyone does to start with! Slowly but surely it'll all start to make sense with time.

    Andy - once the screens are uploaded to Steam, rclick the steam icon in your taskbar and select screenshots, then 'view online library', thenj click each one to full screen it. Rclicking any of the full screen images in the online lib should give you a 'copy image address' or something to allow you to link it.

    @Merko - come join the purple people eaters! Pure & all the gang are very welcome too :)

    I started playing after the last triple sc and could really do with another. Everything at the moment is just a little too much for my internal accountant, but I'd happily stick 20 quid in a triple sc.

    > More secure spawn rooms at small outposts

    The new spawns in the video look good. Much more visibility out via massive shielded areas + battlements with access via a shielded roof.

    The SMGs look good as well, will probably try one out on an infiltrator.

    Also don't forget the warpgates are rotating at the end of the month as well so we'll be going through the canyons of Indar a lot more...

    This is by far and away the best shooter out there at the moment.

    Quite enjoying tanking it up in the Lightening at the moment. Any of the upgraded guns worth it? I've tried skyguard and armour piercing, but not super impressed by either. Thinking high explosive infantry killer instead.

    The armour upgrades worth it? Seems like a lot of certs for a 10% increase.

    I have 200 certs to spend but not sure what to get. If I unlock c4 can all classes use it? I mainly play medic and engineer

    I use HEAT rounds, they're pretty good.

    Armour upgrades, last time I saw anything about them it was someone pointing out that the percentages increasing in defense weren't actually enough to save you from even 1 more hit from another tank :/

    @andytheadequate C4 is tied to the class you buy it for.

    I just dropped 500 certs on the max level medic tool :D

    I might buy c4 for the medic to give me some anti vehicle capability then. I have level 4 medic tool I think, or possibly level 3. Don't think I need to upgrade it for now. Are there any useful upgrades for the magrider? I've done the cheaper ones, and bought a saron, but that's about it

    I think you can buy sc in game.

    C4 for the LA might be a bit more versatile. AT mines and AP mines for the Engi class are good investments too.

    @Prog yeah you can buy in game, should be an option for it in the store somewhere.

    Top games last night!

    I have mines now, and don't really use light assault. I consider that and recon to be classes that are only useful when you know how to assault a base properly...

    The higher levels of the medic tool are handy but not essential. I can revive someone at full health now, and I only have to hold the button for less than a second.

    The improved Magrider agility is pretty handy. Nano repair is good. Magburner is also useful.

    For Magriders - get up to Combat Chassis 3 asap, also cloak keeps you off mini-maps ( great for avoiding air ). Magburner is ok, but these days I run with IR smoke due to every man and his dog having a homing missile.

    For the guns, Sauron 1.5x mag is a must.

    @RedSparrows Stick with it, I use a razer naga mouse, it has improved me to average from usless. It means less keyboard pressing and just using your thumb on right hand for most stuff. Works a treat.

    Agree about the mouse. Recently bought a gaming mouse and I've found its made a massive difference especially with vehicles.
    Trying to make the most of the double xp weekend so will be back soon with the eurogamer lot.

    Yep, I have an MX518 and it is just a glorious device, made gaming so much better. I need to trade it in as it won't reach me on the sofa now. Going to get the GX500 wireless equivalent.

    I had to wipe this to fit something else but I'm coming back - is it okay to download the Steam version now if you had an account from beta? I know there were issues at first where it'd force a Prosieben account on you, is that still the case?

    I'd kick the living daylights out of the producers of Tipping Point - Ghandi

    Don't you have to download it from their website directly?

    @Red- I picked 3 screenshots at random, I have another 10. I'm sure you'll have your head in a crotch in at least one of them...
