    From what i understood, stealth will be changed for all vehicles
    That means either spending thousands of certs to get the no minimap thing or phasing stealth out of my loadouts. Oh well ...

    Being removed from the minimap is definitely worth 1,000 certs. The notes say though that each rank will lower the radius in which you're visible though, so you can go half-way for a partial effect.

    But all the signs indicate a multi-xp weekend is on its way. Those certs should roll in a little more easily for a while at least.

    Suuuuuuuure, autocorrect...

    As for XP/Min, it could be useful to know how to earn more, but I feel it's probably a playstyle I'm not used to or one I wont really like as much. I love being on the ground crew for the Air Squad and that honestly must have some of the worst possible xp/min possible.

    Probably, but I think you'd be surprised at the xp/min you'd get if you were serving tanks rather than aircraft.

    Yeah but that's not really my point.

    XP/Min can be boosted up by a play style, the same way KDR can be boosted up, just play like Daddy does. I'm not complaining about getting f-all certs while in the pit crew, because as unrewarding as it is for certs, its some of the most fun I've had in the game as it breaks up the constant CQB's that go on day in day out.

    Yeah, I'm a bit concerned about how they will reconcile this:
    [Rotary] TTK (against other ESFs) between the empires has been brought closer together
    with
    Reaver weapons retain a higher damage and faster TTK.
    given current difference with certed mags is 2.04s (Reaver) vs 2.15s (Scythe) vs 2.24s (Mossie).

    The Hailstorm projectile speed increase sounds really good though I wonder if it is implicit in that statement that the Hailstorm will become the lowest TTK?
    Scythe weapons used to just be in between the Reaver and Mosquito weapons and have a slower projectile. Instead, they will have the quickest projectile (instead of slowest) and will reload faster.
    I'm also concerned that with the ranged damage fall-off for Rotaries, they could be getting nerfed to get people to buy the new secondaries. (Although I concede that is PS2 forum-worthy paranoia.)

    Given the disparity between the three weapons and the fact that the Mass Driver is called the NS-50 (read: Nanite Systems), I think it more likely they are all non-faction weapons. It is unclear though.

    Really like the sound of the lockon changes too.
    The problem for ESF is that flares are pretty much mandatory (particularly anywhere near TR).
    The new lockon changes sound really good but I'm not sure they will entirely fix the need for flares.
    I'd like them to move flares into a separate cert-branch so you could still use other utility slots like scout radar or fire suppression.

    Utility Galaxies do sound really good though.

    I dunno, I've not really found flares to be necessary. I always fly with scout radar and I last a reasonable length of time, due to autorepair nanites

    Please do, I'm genuinely interested. I guess 182 certs/min is a terrible score?

    Oh, it's the best! 182xp/min is alright though, I imagine it's better than most. I'd be damn proud of myself if I ever got that high, I enjoy dying too much

    182certs a min would be an amazing score, but 182xp per min would mean getting about 1 kill every 50 seconds or there abouts, which wouldn't be terrible, but you can get higher depending on how you play.

    Get a blueshift zoe max and have an engineer follow you around an infantry heavy area and you're KD and xp/min will skyrocket.

    Mine works out to 32 certs per hour played. And that's fine by me. Long as I'm having fun!

    I was under the impression that medal rewards awarded certs and not XP, and were hence unaffected by XP modifiers.
