    Hey, the only thing OP about the NC at the moment is that I play for them. That ain't never gonna change!

    also dont agree with the sentiment that NC are overpowered.

    I do agree with the sentiment that the people deciding all of this shit have no real clue what they are doing.

    It's also worth noting that while the Saron's ability to one hit kill has been removed, its accuracy has been increased so it's incredibly likely that a second shot will kill.

    well, i was kinda referring to zoe and the saron getting the nerfbat (the latter after its total destruction), while the fractures and other tr toys remain unchanged. for the nc, most things aren't unbalanced, except maybe the shield on the vanguard. that thing is impossible to crack and basically an insta-win button if the vg is close enough.

    wait what? the zoe is getting nerfed?

    I dont care much about the damage, but the running speed is vital.

    they initially thought about adding fuel, and only allowing 8s of up-time. now they're just increasing the increased damage taken from 20 to 30%.

    Yeah, the fuel timer for ZOE seemed kind of silly, I'm guessing y'all are happy enough with the damage increase instead?

    The current Saron was bound to get a nerf, just sad that it involves getting rid of it's original character. I will withhold judgement until seeing exactly how the new CoF reset feels.

    As long as he pays taxes, NC is fine with that :P

    Out of topic, but IIRC someone said that the measure of one's liberty is how much they can and are willing to strugle when someone is trying to take it away from them.

    Also, still OOT, the 9 strips in the greek national flag stand for the syllables of the phrase "liberty or death" in Greek.

    Corporate sponsorship and fat bonus checks are not liberty. Liberating oneself from the shackles of primitive illusions is. For instance, on Auraxis there is no death. TR and NC are fighting a battle already lost by circumstances (immortality, post-scarcity due to nanites, etc). The Vanu are fighting to show them that humanity has transcended the strugles of old, and that new challenges should be the focus of our intellect and endeavours.

    The Vanu are the Culture (RIP Iain [M] Banks).

    Lots of :P smilleys to all of the above :P

    Current state of the nv/ir scope on the test server:



    It has a slight sway which seems negligible. I remember SOE saying that they wanted to add a "turn on" delay when looking through the scope before you'd be able to see anything, but that doesn't seem to have made it, gladly.

    And apparently the TR vulcan is being buffed to be more accurate and kill a liberator in 3 seconds? Anyone know if that's all going live?

    edit: looking at the CoF bloom reduction I have to say I'm happy. I want the saron to be a vehicle sniping laser bastard that works well from the preferred magrider engagement range (i.e. some distance, with good strafing cover), and it seems like it'll be better at that now. Cool!

    PSA: if you want to keel mans, get the PPA

    editx2: about time the vehicle magic see all infantry ever sights got nerfed to crap. So sick of careful concealment and camo choices being pointless because someone spent 50 certs and can right-click

    Are people actually choosing specific camo believing they won't be seen?

    Umm, that definitely still seems to highlight enemies. I'm all for the changes Eleven mentions - it makes sense that thermal imaging would highlight targets but infra-red wouldn't. But the video seems to suggest it's basically the same as ever.
