    It's currently double xp. No idea why but it is. Not sure if it's members only.

    Maybe they will do a Fallen London and realise that everyone likes double actions/double xp so much while it's on, may as well make it permanent!

    The loading screens are bugged. Not everyone gets the messages about double xp weekends. It's not just me being blind either, I found other people discussing this on a forum a month or two back.

    A sorry for the issues with the domain name expiry? I think there was some talk of adding 2 days to subscriptions too.

    I had issues with constant crashes earlier today, I removed the changes to the hosts file and suddenly a patch came in.

    Wow, T-Ray is implying that we will be able to make cosmetics for just about anything in the Player Studio, from gun scopes to MBT turrets. I have been wanting something like that for ages!

    Edit: No infantry armour or aircraft cosmetics

    Don't worry though, to balance you'll have to stick your head down the barrel for it to kill

    I wonder which weapons come as stock on the Valkyrie. If it's any of those. (im assuming that you can mix and match these for gunner turret and pilot turret?)

    I thought the Valkyrie had no pilot controlled weapon, just the single passenger turret? Links indicate the stock weapon is the M20 Wyvern.

    It seems a lot more viable as a vehicle now that we know what guns it has, having engineers with c4 in the rumble seats along with the rocket pods or AV turret would make it very effective in hit and run attacks against sunderer's or MBT's, but I can't see it being very effective without air support unless burster max's are allowed in the rumble seats. Overall I quite like it being some sort of mini-liberator.

    I'd anticipate the valkyrie typically operating at much lower altitudes than the other aircraft. It's described as a transport aircract, ad its weapons are described as short range (and yes, gunner has always been described as a seperate seat to pilot). So expect to see it pretty close to the ground most of the while. And yes, probably quite short lived.

    I can see them being used as an expendable way to deliver a squad of four to a point, whilst possibly getting a few kills along the way from the turret and jump seats. Definitely not a whale though, which is generally supposed to hang around for multiple transports or act in a combat capacity.

    Does depend how much they cost in terms of resources though. I'd love to see them with utility slots that allow repair/ammo/radar for a support role, but doubt that will happen.

    EDIT: Fall damage from a V? If it lets you drop (even if from a much lower height) like a Gal, then it can be used as a transport. If you have to actually stop and land it...
