    So, it seems Lattice on Amerish this week in GU12, interesting. I don't think it will change much to Amerish, but it might pull people to the continent.

    Dunno, fighting on Amerish does remain a bit of a battle against ghost caps, so that may well go away - it might make it a little more encouraging to be there in vehicles too, as your next target should actually be drivable to. How it's going to include some of the bases (Whichever Torremar is in the SE, The Ascent, etc) remains to be seen.

    Here's the Reddit image of Amerish on PTS.

    EDIT Removed image to avoid double posting

    Genuinely don't understand why SOE doesn't just remove that one point above the warpgate in the north east (the VS gate in this instance). Rest of the lattice looks interesting, it'll certainly reduce the whack-a-mole issue on Amerish.

    Backup in case of hotlink problems

    This is the current test server lattice. Thoughts:
    Ikanim is going to be seriously hard to attack - you near enough have to go to NW WG to get to it.
    Split Peak really needs a Silver Valley link (and maybe to remove the Silver-Xelas link).
    The rubbish base that is Rockslide has somehow become a hub (making the Ascent one would have been vastly more sensical)
    Lithcorp and Blackshard Tungsten's links are just Odd
    Why the hell is Hidden Ridge even still a base? Arc Bio et al all went away.
    Satellites apparently still satellites, rather than important bases. This might be good, as Ikanim fights were made much more interesting by all the satellite squabbling, but still...
    Deepcore Platinum remains the most pointless facility in the game.
    Edit: Some positive comments:
    Tech plant links generally look good, nice to see ways around them as well as through.
    Bastion and Crux HQ look like they've managed to remain important (although oddly not linked)

    Edit: There's no reason for the NE WG holders to ever lose Sungery to the Southerners. Just stick a pile of people at Auraxicom Network. It's not quite as broken as Blackshard Tungsten, but it should be quite viable to hold off 2:1 there.

    yeah, some of those connections (or lack thereof) are pretty unfortunate. i hope this is a WIP though. As with Indar, the latticification will make alerts (amp/bio) pretty unfair and mostly dependent on the look of the map when the alert starts. Ikanam and Sungrey are basically completely safe, while xelas/onatha and wokuk/kwahtee will basically draw all the fights.

    i wish they'd leave esamir without lattice. it already has great flow during alerts, and i dont see how lattice will do a single thing to improve battles there.

    That looks like very early WIP, basically a rough draft without having to remove any bases. Because there is quite a few bases that could be removed or merged with satellite bases to create a much better battleflow.

    Also Onatha biolab with only 2 connections? That should be illegal

    Yeah, they definitely rejigged the Indar lattice map a few times, removing a bunch of bases outright and repositioning some. Wonder if they are actually going to go with satellites unconnected, it would make a huge difference to large base fights. Not sure which I would prefer (perhaps unconnected for biolabs only, rest connected?).

    Problem is we are apparently getting Amerish lattice this week, so really hope this is not the final.

    I vastly prefer the satellites being part of the lattice but I think the satellites should connect to each other so when you attack a major facility the defenders know where you are coming from and can mount a defense at that satellite and make use of the guns/walls/gates that comes with it (this is especially important for Tech Plants imho because the only defenses they have tend to be the satellites) but once the attackers have taken a satellite they can spread around the facility and take the other satellites.

    That does sound like it would keep what is good of both systems!

    Yeah thats what I always assumed they would do from the beginning and was pretty dissapointed with the Indar lattice when it wasn't the case. It is usually not a big issue but Biolabs are horrible when you cannot use all the teleporters.

    I think the reason is that they want people to have to actually take the central facility to move on, not just cap around it.
    They could compromise somewhat though - there's no reason that say, the Bastion couldn't be linked to both southern Sats at Ikanim.

    Cooper - looks like you have a fan club:

    Or at least, your design does. Let's hope they implement it...

    I've been meaning to finish an update / follow-up to that mock-up. Might get my arse in gear and get that posted tomorrow.

    Your post isn't showing up in "new".
    Think the spam-filter has grabbed it.
    Apparently messaging the mods is the solution.

    In my experience the solution is just delete the post and redo it. Spam filter only seems to effect one in ten new posts I make.

    And lattice for amerish has been pulled from GU12, it wasn't ready according to twitter.

    Nice, guess that means they are finessing the version we saw.

    Re: Cooper's map ideas, they make a lot of sense. Impressive! How come the lattice connections are so pale in 'Step 1' tho? The clarity of them in the first draft version was really nice.

    G12 notes are up.

    Personal highlight:

    Recommended Server Chanages
    Recommended servers are now provided for each faction instead of having one set of suggested servers for all new players.
    Platoon Interface Improvements
    Added an icon to the platoon leader
    Added ability to see detailed squad information while in a platoon by clicking the panel for each squad in the platoon management screen
