@mhigby Spotting changes, need to be 'accurate' to spot long distance targets, no blanket spotting. NV/IR optics for aircraft range adjustments.

@mhigby MAXs will render at a longer distance (more like a vehicle) for players in air vehicles. This will give a better threat indicator to pilots.

@mhigby Fix to jumpjets periodically ceasing to function until you log out will also be in this hotfix.

@mhigby As usual, if anything comes up between now and when we deploy (at around midnight PST) it may get delayed, but things are looking good now.

@mhigby And yes, real non-tweeted patch notes will be available on the forum as we get closer.

A stock 1090t will have some trouble, but if you've got it around 3.8-4Ghz, you should be fine. The Ph II x4 @4.3 in the back up rig plays it well enough.

It's F2P. I'll say it like I always say it when this is asked about a Free To Play game.

Try it. If you like it, show your appreciation by buying something. If you don't like it, don't play it. This has nothing to do with paying to win or being gimped or whatever, it has to do with supporting the developer, so that they can continue to improve the game and go on to make more games that you will enjoy.

Costs exactly $0 to download and try. Literally a risk-free proposition. How many games have you paid full price on release for only to discover they were crap? Don't say none, because we've all done it, even if it wasn't in recent memory.

Matterson's pretty insane right now. In the past two days I've been playing, the VS have nearly had a triple continent lock twice. After 1 double lock, the NC made a temporary peace with the TR, came right back and got 2 continents.

You can have an absolute blast without spending a penny.

I hit BR64 then got burned out after double xp ended. Haven't played since.
post #987 of 3017
This game would be alot more fun if it was optimized correctly.

I'm running an i5 2500k at 4ghz with dual 670 FTW's in SLI and I'm still dipping into the 40 FPS range in some instances. I should be annihilating this game based on hardware specs.

It has nothing to do with me running SB over IB.

Also is anyone else getting the flickering screen issue. It's happened to both myself and a friend. I've had it flicker back and forth between black and the image as well as white and the image. Temps are all fine on the cards and I'm on the older October Nvidia drivers to keep BF3 playing well, but my friend is experiencing the same issues on an AMD card. I'm SLI nvidia, and he's single card AMD and we both get the identical error. It's happened 2 out of the last 4 nights i've played and can last up to 2-3 minutes. Usually exiting and re-joining is the only fix.

Good to see that those OP TR Skyguards will now be able to be spotted at longer range. Now, nothing can take me down! smile.gif

Most of the time things will be pretty even between free and paying players who have been playing for the same number of hours.

For example, the default (free) VS Light Machine Gun is arguably the best LMG in the game, and the default TR Assault Rifle is arguably better than any AR the other empires have access to. The NC get, for free, a MAX (power armor - Mechanized Armor eXosuit) weapon that's arguably better than any other empire's MAX weapons.

The main drawbacks for free players as I see them:
- (bomber) Liberator's default guns all suck (front, bottom, and rear)
- (light tank) Lightning's default gun sucks
- (anti-aircraft) AA MAX is only 50% functional by default, and you have no other defense against aircraft
-up to 50% slower XP gain means you need to choose fewer areas to specialize in (eg, your paying friend may have fully certed gear for their Engy and Medic, but you'll have to choose to finish Engy or Medic in the same timeframe.)

World flicker like you've described has been a bug since Beta.
