  1. Crown of the preserver has been renamed "Corona Conservatrix" so it fits with all the other crown/corona medal names.

    Feel free to make videos with this stuff in. I'm just writing down anything that comes to mind here. All Classes On everyone else's screen you are behind where you are on your screen due to the nature of networking (lag) and how this game engine handles that. Ever been shot behind a wall when you run into cover? This is why. Crushed by a sunderer when you thought you could easily drive in front of it in your harrasser? This is why. Been killed the very instant you see a BR100 and called bullshit? He's already aiming at you before you can see him. This is why short time to kill (TTK), weapons are especially deadly in close quarters with lots of cover. Use this knowledge to your advantage. I'm not going to do a ton of research into this because I know it works, so these numbers will be rough. These numbers also vary based on any given player's connection to the servers but are not entirely ping related. Hopefully this explains it: people wont see you for 0.2~ seconds when you run out of cover, but on your screen in these 0.2~ seconds you are already out of cover and can aim at the enemy. Combine this with the average human reaction time, lets say this is another 0.2~ seconds, you have 0.4~ seconds on the enemy to aim and start firing. Of course, if you don't kill the enemy and need to run back into cover remember that they have another 0.2 seconds on you once you're already in cover. This advantage could allow you to get several bullets into the enemy before they start firing. In short, utilize cover and peak out of cover as much as possible. Keep space between vehicles in any sort of vehicle column or you might get crushed. Infiltrator Recon darts are extremely useful. If you play infiltrator a lot I really reccomend upgrading them a bit and firing them at towers, spawn points, capture points and any areas heavily populated by enemies. You earn XP from everyone killed that was detected by the dart and you provide a great service to your team. As an SMG infiltrator the dart is useful for getting the exact locations of enemies before you assault any given area, you are not going to be in a sustained fight with this class, so you need to kill people as fast as possible, this means knowing where they before they know where you are. If you're very close to an enemy and you are uncloaked, cloaking may cause the enemy to hear you and quickly zone in on your position. I have done this to enemy infiltrators far too many times, your cloak can be heard from quite a distance and anyone with surround sound, virtual or real, can easily detect where the sound is coming from and gun you down before you can uncloak again. Obviously some situations require you cloak regardless of the risk, use your own judgement, just keep this in mind. CQC: using a knife can cut your time to kill in half and save your life. You'll want to fire your gun off first though so you can finish them with the knife. 2 knife swings is often too slow for an enemy that is focusing on you. Will post stuff for other classes at a later date.
  5. Welcome! Here is an elephant on a trampoline.
  6. W.A.R. ribbons have been awarded to everyone listed as taking part in the first W.A.R. operation. If you were in the operation and didn't receive a W.A.R. ribbon, please post here.
  7. The point is to see your own merits, which you can see in your own profile on FF's database or that link, then add your own on the forum award system and await approval.

  13. Welcome to Ordoooooooooo! :]
  14. Hi and welcome. :D
  15. Hi

    Welcome! :D
  16. Welcome! :D
  17. Yeah the 320.49 drivers are much better, I was just pointing it out because stock pcs might come with older drivers and my old card died on those drivers. I don't want to derail this thread SO I'M GONNA PM YOU.
  18. I have a GTX 780. 600 series is good, just avoid 320.18 drivers as they cause artifacting in some games on those cards. 600/700 series will have the ability to use Nvidia's upcoming GPU recording software too. The rest looks fine for PS2, provided that CPU is 3.2/3.4ghz (I had to look it up quick). a 3.2/3.4ghz quad should manage but you may drop to about 20-30 fps in those super huge battles. Anything less than 3.2 is pretty bad (i've tried mine at the stock 2.7ghz and its unplayable in huge battles, OCed to 4.2 its fine.)
  19. Hi and welcome! :D
  20. You poor sap. Treeing to test yewr fractures when these bugs crop up. SOE really need to get to the root of these issues before sycamore people leaf the game. I mean I willow a few minor bugs but not this... this makes me want to face palm... You can't even cedar trees in a lot of areas on indar and then they come out of your MAX gums like that. SOE maple some sort of patch off to fix it in the future, they might even spruce up a few other issues too, possibly even branch out to other audiences. At least revives remove your death stat now, as a medic you can get a lot more resin done. When they've fixed everything then I don't mind them going to relax on a beech.
