    They can still use them but now have to be aware that they have to reposition more quickly. "Good hiding spots" usually dont help you against organized players as they will find you pretty quick. The only thing "good hiding spots" (in terms of killing players) do is farming bad/unorganized players. And that's getting harder now. I really don't see any loss here. Even when you are sniping you should be moving around anyway.
    That's just one of those changes everybody is up in arms about and when it goes live nothing changes.

    Gloves, I dont mind as much as infantry, but I also said the skygaurd, which is definitely true, they can take me down in one run, but I cannot return the favour, even if I get a drop on them. The fact that my gun has a massive scatter range makes it mostly a vehicle to fend off the enemy air overhead. They usually run pretty quickly once you have damaged 2 or 3 of them, but kills? Not really. Even on shortrange it still takes a significant amount of bullets to kill them.

    PTS changes look good! Glad to see the Ranger getting buffed, I always liked the idea of flak guns on vehicles as air deterrent, but they do kind of suck at the moment. No idea why they are introducing SC for scopes.

    Shared Vehicle XP

    • Experience for kills are now shared amongst the entire crew of a vehicle, this includes all passengers, but they receive a smaller amount.
    • Experience for assists are now shared amongst the entire crew of a vehicle, excluding passengers. This amount is usually less than the amount awarded for the actual assist.
    About time.

    And the token comedy (but very welcome) bug fix:

    Reduced head collision size to lower the amount of unearned headshots

    Like I said before, I've not used a Skyguard so I can't really say much about it. It really shouldn't be beaten in a straight fight with an ESF though.

    If an ESF sneaks up on a Skyguard lighting and puts a whole clip of rockets into it's bum then the Skyguard guy deserves it, lets face it his one task is to watch the skies.

    However if a ESF simple dives through the flak fire of an aware driver and bombs the Skyguard to death and gets away with it then this is a problem. Which is it?

    The latter, I position my self often so as to only have one venue of attack towards me. It's mostly about both of us spamming eachother with our weapons, with me drawing the short end due to the lesser spread of the ESF missles compared to my skygaurds spread. And yes, I have the zoom upped on my skygaurd so I can see the bullets wizz past him. Frankly, for a AAA weapon it has horrible guns.

    Also the problem is that Skyguard flak is supposed to take the ESFs vision. Which it does. But it doesn't help you much because rocket pods take the Skyguards vision too and it is a much less mobile target. So in an contest of taking each others vision the ESF wins.
    I actually wouldn't mind the current state of the Skyguard so much if we could do anything else with it. Like killing infantry. Once Air buggers off your resources are basically wasted.

    Nah, a skyguard pair will melt an MBT or a sundy. If you're riding skyguard, bring a friend!

    Preferrably with a Python HEAT, in my opinion. A Skyguard and a HEAT lightning can take on any other thing on the battlefield and win.

    We should try some working together in tanks stuff at some point. I like the idea of a Mag with a Lighting "outrider" or Harassers supporting Flashes, things like Boris's comment above.

    Or four harassers following Wardancers on a flash into a TR armour column (with one of them immediately flipping over and exploding) like last night?

    Only if you can get close. And a good tanker (and his engineer friends) wont let that happen.

    I got about 50 new subs in the last two hours from that video. As I said to Wrel on the comments, he's like the Oprah of Planetside 2. Was weird when I didn't know what was causing it and my inbox was going mental!

    We need to get onto this shit. I don't care about Comm clash shit, but this is the SHIT we need to get onto. It represents what Planetside 2 is 4 times more than Commclash.

    Yeah. We said "yes" on these forums, when the organiser cam ehere to post, but apparently we needed to have PMed them on Reddit, then we'd have gotten a google spreadsheet sent to us, which we needed to put our names down on.
