When I want to relax I go to the firing range and unload with dual gold mag Spitfires into the sky. Back and forth, forever. Pure bliss

I had the weirdest ring ending on King's Canyon tonight. It ended up pretty much focused over Mirage's voyage out over the water. We were coming up I guess from Terminal station towards Skull salvage and got cutoff, had to run through the ring to get over the bridge and into safety. Essentially the final ring was on the ship. It was very weird.

Final ring can end on Voyage. There was a bug the first week of the season that was causing it to happen way more often than it should have but they patched it. I've had probably 6 games this season that ended there including one earlier tonight.

Back in the early days of this thread somebody made a big effort post about advanced look controls. Does anybody have that available? I haven't played since season 2 and apart from having a ton a rust to shake off I swear my settings got changed.

I played double gold mag spitfire twice yesterday, lol. It is kind of fun because you don't even need to empty the first mag before you switch to the second one, you just switch any time you would normally reload.

Since I main Loba the way I've been playing is dropping next to an explosive hold, lifting the 2 gold mags with my first ult and basing my kit around that.

In fact there is a spot you can drop in the new zone that has black market access to two explosive holds at once, so if you stand there you can load up your whole team on gold mags.

Holy drat, did not expect that many seemingly viable Mozambique loadouts. Also Horizon looks way more fun at way higher skill levels than where I'm playing.

Got kidnapped for the first time by a wraith that threw a portal in my face and lured me into an explosive hold full of gas and wattson traps. I hate breaking my own rule which is: never use another wraithís portal.

The anvil receiver on 301 is basically a scout that you can also turn full auto, saving the other weapon slot for a shotgun or other close range weapon

...on the plus side I'm feeling much more angry now than I expected so this totally helps me get in character.


Someone fed me a gold R-301 in the first five minutes (basically ran from my squad straight into me) and what the gently caress. Felt like I didn't need any other gun.

Have I just been very unlucky, or does the dropship just never start near the new zone on Kings Canyon? It feels like I never start games there unless we do a long drop.

I'm wondering if they forgot to update the dropship paths to account for the map being bigger than before

Thanks for posting these, I like these clips and I tend to forget about the discord a lot. Can fuse's ult be shot through any window or do you have to be on a lower height relative to the window?

Lower height, if you fire it from further away it'll want to detonate in the sky, so you wanna bounce it off the ceiling before it gets that high.

They did, but I know a lot of people don't use Bookmarks and just glance to see what threads have unread posts.

Given how fast I'm getting into matches this season, I can't imagine Game Dead, especially with the great changes they've made.

I would be interested to know why they shut down a bunch of servers though. Last time I looked, they'd shut down several in the US at least. As someone pointed out earlier, the Virginia/DC server has been offline for at least a few months.

Yeah, no luck in either. I have now tried every DC in both Origin and Steam versions of the game and I still cannot connect even if I leave the game open for an hour first.

I really like this game but I just can't play it anymore because of some weird bug with no error messages and no logging that affects random accounts. There are hundreds of pages of posts in a thread about this on the game's official forum and none from any devs.

have you tried mashing esc after you click connect? the hypothesis is that there are so many rewards and announcements adding up that the game kicks you out because it can't handle the number. mashing esc hopefully clears one or two out each attempt.

I've definitely been experiencing issues with very slow login times recently. It might have started as far back as the beginning of the season. It just sits at the start screen for ages before it lets you press Mouse One to get into the main menu. I have no idea what it's doing in that time, but it definitely can take up to 30 seconds to prompt me to click my mouse. It used to be pretty instantaneous.

Virginia servers were poo poo. I know because I used to default to them.
