  • What Can be Done with this?

    Okay I'm confused so that's a VS heavy that can get cloaked by an enemy (TR) sunderer. Is that intentional or are they gonna remove that?

    As for what can we do with this I suppose long-range AT squads can use this feature when we all just hide under the bubble of invisibility and when a tank shows up we all jump out and launcher it to death which can be pretty funny to watch.

      Ambushes.
      Road blocks not perceived until close range.
      invisible bridges.

      Does it cloak nearby vehicles as well

        Beyond the basic ability of hiding a spawn point and making them harder to sweep via armour or air, the obvious utility is, as others have pointed out, ambushes and hiding squads. It might also be a reasonable way to cover a squad caught in the open, though the Sunderer will be an obvious target if it's seen deploying for that.

        I'd be interested in running mechanized infantry with the Sunderer as an IFV. Aside from the obvious utility of a battle bus and spawn point with an infantry escort, that invisibility on demand could allow excellent opportunities for ambush.

        It's also worth mentioning that this could make for an EXTREMELY strong firing position in that the automatic cloak will serve as a pretty decent antidote to enemy suppression or sniper fire. An infiltrator, for instance, could loiter FOREVER in a cloaking field without using up their cloak supply, allowing them to wait out an enemy sniper and never reveal themselves without also taking a shot. Similarly, infantry firing from the cloak field can stop firing and hunker for a short time to find themselves invisible and largely immune to suppressive fire.

        When this lands we should try and figure out if it's viable to park the Sunderer in a hull-down position and then still have the cloaking field extend far enough to make a firing position out of a hill.

              Hmmm, 3 sunderers,


              Remote Mobile AIR and Armour Station:
              (Ammo) (cloak deployed) (repair)




              Edit:
              New Galaxy Defensive Slot Items

              Vehicle Ammo Dispenser: Resupply ammunition of nearby vehicles
              Nanite Proximity Repair System: Repair nearby damaged vehicles


              Now with that plan we will not fit 2 gals in the cloak shield :P


              Now I just fly over the battle as a gal .... as I do anyway ... but can resuply at the same time :P

              Going to be on the test server for the next 30 min If anyone is active

              EDIT 2:

              Well Gals cannot repair Gals atm
              and a gal will not fit in the cloak shield :P

                I'm down to 48K, I spent some. And my gaming rig just failed on me. I will need a few days to see if it can be fixed.

                Interesting suderer....
                The question foremost in my mind is "what will bring the most tactical fun to the server?"

                    The one rub with using these Sunderers is that it seems you need to deploy to activate the cloak. This means that we wont be able to control who is spawning here and our mission security would be hindered by random acts of blueberries. Do vehicles gain the cloak effect in the bubble? Could a lightning fit inside?

                      Vehicles don't get it, and if I've read correctly there's also a hard limit on visibility (60m or thereabouts) while inside the bubble. This somewhat limits the utility of it, but its still a very powerful tool.

                      Yeah, blues spawning on it could be trouble. Would be nice to be able to limit it to prevent exposure.

                        Yep no over shield for other vehicles, the drivers get it, you can even hear the a sunderer driver cloak when it enters the field:P

                          I think I'd prefer the PS1 mechanic where everything inside the shield is visible when you're in it. Going to be very confusing with a neon bus and a lot of squiggly lines once the enemy closes to CQ.
