    Oh... good news! It's going to be fixed!

    http://forums.station.sony.com/ps2/index.php?threads/game-update-04-coming-soon.99770/

    We've combined the respawn and map screen into one.
    Thank FUCK.

    otable balance changes

    Explosive radius from ALL vehicle based damage sources have been reduced, this does not affect vehicle vs vehicle direct hit damage, only splash damage vs infantry.
    Prowler HEAT / HE rounds have had their damage reduced to no longer 1-shot kill infantry, killing a full health infantry will require both Prowler rounds to be fired. This does not affect vs. vehicle damage.
    Edit: Movement improvements for the Magrider, bringing back some of it's glideyness, but not it's ability to climb every hill in the game.
    Edit: Torque increases for all MBTs so they don't slow down as much on inclines.
    Well that's that fixed then.

    Flash rumble seat?!? I'm having that!

    You know there are problems with this game - still - but SEO aren't exactly sitting on their hands. It's not perfect but they're clearly trying to get things balanced.

    Looking forward to the [edit]Lancer and the other ES launchers. Nice to finally see some unique options.

    Not looking forward to tanks being even more vulnerable to infantry. Troops already have about 20 different ways to kill vehicles, some of which are one-shots. Going to be tough hunting sunderers after this patch.

    Wonder if an AA MAX can sit on the passenger seat of a flash :)

    The update sounds pretty good. Most thinks I hoped for they already announced. And finally a training room. Now I can try to learn how to fly, hopefully.

    Are we still going to be creating squads in our outfit or is it going to be mainly joining other outfit’s platoons from now on? I haven’t seen a squad running in the outfit for a while now.

    If this is the case why shouldn’t we all just join one of these other outfits to make it easier to join the squads or is it better to stay separate for small scale ops when/if they happen?

    I've thought about joining the RPS guys.

    Unfortunately though the game seems like more of a crown-fest than ever before.

    I had an amazing night on this last night. My Outfit is really starting to be a force to be reckoned with. We held off about 3 outfits at Mani Biolab yesterday to protect the Esamir continent bonus, pretty much on our own, for almost 2 hours. We got wiped out down to it being our last territory, still held it long enough for us to push back out of the warpgate and reconnect it. Was awesome.

    Ended up with over 150 kills and no more than 30 deaths :D

    Don't get me wrong, I've really enjoyed being in the outfit when we've got a squad up, especially as it's relatively small so we can get moving quicker and not always staying at the crown etc...

    However, recently needing to join another outfits platoon to be in a squad where our outfit members are kind of seems a little bit pointless being in the outfit…

    I forget who you are in-game (forgive me, shit memory), but yeah squads are still being created etc. I think part of the problem is that our early/prime time EU TZ is rather quiet, with a lot of our guys getting on a bit later e.g. 10-11ish.

    We're usually running either our own squad, or our own squad as part of a Vanu Accord platoon, a group of coordinated outfits that we've recently become affiliated with. They're still our squads either way; the latter simply means more people to play with (and usually TS3 instead of Vent). It's actually been really good rolling with VA of late, some excellent nights have been had.

    We really need more prime time EU players to bolster our early evening numbers, though I am making an effort to get on earlier when I can. Tonight, from about half 7, Vanu are being filmed on Esamir, so expect a decent squad! Hope to see some of you there.

    Agreed, it was really good being in the platoon with the backup of several squads on Sunday night and defending the Vanu Archives.

    It really didn't start very though. I got into a lib with you and some idiot was trying to flip it over several times then gave up and rammed us... then I saw your galaxy get rammed. Is this just some tk'er or someone from one of the other factions trying to disrupt the movement of our faction?

    Ahh yes I remember! Guy who flipped our Lib was actually another outfit leader, clearly a terrible pilot. As for the Galaxy, I don't know - I think some idiot took off, hit afterburner and clipped the wing. Unrecoverable spin = dead Galaxy. I got really annoyed at that, but I don't think it was intentional!

    Glad you had fun though, we'll be doing more platoon ops this week, so hop on if you can! :D

    I see! I just assumed because of the amount of times he hit/grazed the lib before fully crashing into us he was out to get you :)

    That's one reason I don't fly around much... With the new VR training incoming I'll be able to get some practice first.

    we have a few subscribers, they seem happy enough. You get extra passive cert gain, queue priority (only really an issue during prime-time) and some free smedbucks every month. I don't feel in any way worse off though, as a non-subscriber.

    I'm happy with it. I have a 6mo membership which is set to recurring so I get 500SC a month, 48 passive certs a day thanks to the new update and 50% more xp.

    Still TR here. I go to war in a uniform, not purple PJs.

    Woodman is utterly dead. No matter what time I log in there is never more than single platoon fights going on. When we get transfers, I'm heading to Miller. I'd rather queue than play the poor man's Battlefield we've got on that server.

    I like the new vr room as it's great for getting to grips with efs. Still trying to get to grips with the backwards manoeuvre and struggling.
    Been playing a lot with light assault as the smgs are great fun. Subscriber bonuses are now worth while too now.

    Had a quick look, but there are too few targets to enjoy it on my server.

    The instant action change is, in theory, great, but when you have three squads active on your server the lack of an ability to solo jump into action is a real pain. But... I think it's better not to choose, so I'll manage.

    Otherwise, nothing too special. Mag has been fixed, prowler HE has been fixed. Stuff like that. Map and deploy screen in one is now better. You get an update on your passive certs when you log in, which is handy. All they've done is tidy things up really.

    Apart from the FPS issue... it's knocked a good ten off mine in a fight. Also, I swear there is something wrong with one of the TR LMGs now as it seems to do no damage.

    GU04 has really fucked framerates, they're working on it though.

    Outfits are broken at the moment and everyone walks funny.

    Double xp at the moment.

    Again? That happened a few weeks ago, late one night. Was back to normal by the next day though, so it's nothing to worry about!

    Edit: Expect UBAD platoons to be running all weekend as it's double xp!

    A maintenance update on the forums says the outfit issue has now been fixed.

    Time to use an xp booster with the double xp weekend I think :)

    Feeling a lot better about buying Alpha Squad back in the day. The same 50% boost is now on sale for 5000 SC. Even if you have that much left over after the triple space bucks days, that's still pretty expensive.
