  • Hotfix Changes 1/22

    http://forums.station.sony.com/ps2/i...22-2013.82662/

    Players may note the following changes:

    A number of Server and Client stability optimizations have been made.
    The Heavy Assault Shield should no longer fail to work after respawning.
    The Deployment screen now features top defensive locations on the continent as respawn points.
    Instant Action will now send players to areas with more combat.
    New players will now be placed at a spawn point in a battle instead of being drop podded in.

    Liberators/Galaxies:

    These aircraft are now easier to lock-on to with anti-air missles. By default you can lock on to them 1 second faster. This means it requires 2.5 seconds to lock on to an ESF and 1.5 seconds to lock-on to a Liberator/Galaxy.
    Lock on rockets and missiles should now hit more frequently and are harder to dodge.

    Lock-on weapons can only be avoided by the following:
    Flares
    Forcing the missile to hit something else
    Outrunning it which requires you to be distant and burn a lot of fuel
    A very near miss which should be very challenging



    ---------

    This is going in the right direction. How bout them render fixes.

    Meh, this reduces the variety of possible tactics.

      I think you may be misinterpreting this, this just means that new players logging in for the first time will no longer just be dropped in the middle of a battlefield. This doesnt affect anybody that has logged in more than once.
      May you be covered in the dust of your Rabbi.

        That first drop is intimidating.

          Good changes. I'm looking forward to whatever makes it into the "big patch" coming in a week or so.

            You are right! :) I was misinterpreting this indeed.

              OK, not grooving part of this patch/hotfix at all. I am forced to spawn forward instantly and can never get back to the warp gate for a retro fit unless I move all the way across the screen.

                If you can't see the WG as a spawn, make sure you scroll down.

                  It would not let me see it at all. Not scrolling or picking a option from the map. Really weird. Now I can do it on Amerish, but not Indar.

                    I noticed that too last night. SL called out "regroup at WG" and then I died; looking at the spawn screen I couldn't go directly to the WG but had to spawn in a nearby outpost and hoof it.
