    Was just about to post about the XP increase. That is extremely nice and should perhaps incentivise more tactical play.

    This is really good stuff! Now if they can just improve the cpu/gpu efficiency a little more I will seriously consider becoming a paying subscriber.

    uhm ... anyone wanna hop in my tank and go on a vehicle hunting spree? yay!

    only negative-ish thing from the patch notes is that C4 will despawn when you die ...

    No that is a very good thing, as long as we cannot disarm explosives there must be a way to get rid of them once stuck to a sundie. This way we can at least kill the bastard before he can detonate. No its not the same thing with mines (just preemptive answer to the most common "BUT MIINES!?!?!?")

    Superb! Let the tank massacres begin!

    In other news ... patch is up, and it's 2 gigs. So better get on with downloading it if you dont live in Scandinavia.

    Instant action has been redesigned to be a single button press, with no on-map indication of where it will send the player, but it will still hot-drop them onto a facility with heavy combat. This is to prevent people from exploiting instant action as an organizational tool, which is what people were using it for previously. If you are in a squad and not the leader, a second button for squad deploy will appear.


    We did that a lot... bugger - but it makes Gals even more important!

    Sigh, not much playing for me tonight then.

    Some nice changes in there though, I look forward to getting a half decent amount of xp for killing vehicles.

    I wish I knew this wasn't the case already! The amount of C4 I've wasted thinking it despawns when you die

    And now, in a font that you can actually read!

    Aren't half the hotdrop locations usually between the other two factions? I remember forever being dropped into TR/NC battles by it as a little newbie.

    Ooh, dat update size.

    Fixed bug that was causing the hit box and the player model to not match when jumping.

    That would explain a lot of the bunny-hopping. The C4 change also needed to happen, as it was always weird you could detonate it from 5km away after respawning.

    It also looks like my Reaver's going to gather dust as Annihilator squads and burster MAXs roam the hills looking for xp.

    Placed C4 will now despawn when the source player dies.

    Galaxy: 400 xp, increased from 300 xp
    Liberator: 500 xp, increased from 150 xp
    ESF: 400 xp, increased from 75 xp
    MBTs: 500 xp, increased from 100 xp

    Lightning: 400 xp, increased from 100 xp

    YES !! Now, let's hope they fix the tank mines.
    And where are my account-wide unlocks ?

    Other than this the update looks really good.

    I think they said somewhere that the account-wide unlocks will come "later".
