    ok 1st step just random walking thumper and some sonic detonator try .... i'l say, that game is just plain awesome

    good looking, the gameplay is dynamic, the story hold straight and the battleframes are gorgeous (as they allready looked to me on the website), not much customisation at start but easely solved afterward (im not buying red bean atm) and its as they said : its not a Pay 2 Win since the majority of the cash shop is cosmetic

    i've read Battleframe can also be unlocked via RB or ingame via points so no biggies

    totaly worth it, funny eh? i saw gameplay trailer and wiki+ newcomers guide and i said to myself: this game is totaly what i was waiting for...

    ps: in fact i've read about it on AMD gaming evolved portal then i searched thru mmobomb (i could directly google it but i prefered to seek some feedback on it)

    also i would add: FordGT90Concept your initial post is quite a big help to understand a bit better what's important before open beta (im glad i found that game before it :D )

    I wonder how they scale difficulty. I wonder if its player by player or area by area. If so I wonder if it can be farmed for easy ares missions, as in a squad coordinates and tracks the easy ares missions.

    I'll let you know when I play it. XD

    They made huge changes to battleframe progression though and that has me concerned. It sounds like you can't even use abilities and secondary weapons until those are unlocked with XP. Then again, they standardized resources so many kinds of resources can be used to upgrade each type (CPU, Mass, Power) so it should be easier to progress. They also tied CPU to jump jets so upgrading CPU is more useful.


    I'm most excited about mobs dropping weapons (all levels). They also added level 3 and level 4 battleframe gear.

    beardy weirdo turned to foxy recon hummmm male get better in assault or dread while female get well as recon biotech and engineer... duh :D
    [​IMG]

    and with that patch the recon is the only frame with some "gears" got works to do with the new battleframe progression...:banghead:

    okay 11h47am time to get ready for work! :)

    and i droped a Accord Elite Plasma Cannon II (white ... not worth much i think xD)btw the marketplace bug quite a lot (logical patchday : doomsday) if you put an item in sale then nothing show when you press alt-m afterward (i submited a bug report so they can work on it)

    sidenote: i better not shorten Foxy Recon to FoxCon ... with 1 n more and it be (tm) FoxConn nahahah ... stupid isnt it?

    It used to be that every frame required a specific resource. Mammoth, for example, was Silicate and I think Accord Dreadnaught was Carbon. Now I think there's a general type for mass, another type for power, and another for CPU. The only thing specific now is the progression component (e.g. Dampeners) but to craft those requires 90 AMP worth of two component types and generic types too.

    Long story short, it's easier than it was.

    Build seems broken to me. I can't play more than 5 minutes before the game freezes. I get error messages in game when trying to access the printer.

    The printer is different. I now have to research the refining processes. This is really going to slow my crysite production, and I may not get that lgv... sadface. Also, I can't find the recluse in the bf garage.

    Maybe the EU instance is fine and the NA instance isn't? I'm about to try playing now to see how it goes.

    I think you have to research the basic frame types before it will show you its Tier 2 variants.

    i think EU instance is fine (tho we are on the same server) i get less and less crash, and i have access to T2 Battleframe without uping T1 (still need point or red beans.).

    i just connected now now ... login nearly instant and loading faster than yesterday, i used Google Authenticator for the 6 digit code and since i use many computer its really a great thing (with the Remember this computer case to tick obviously)

    i think after 9.07.2013 for tier 2 B-Frames i will go R-23 "Nighthawk" D-M "Mammoth" and i hesitate between "Firecat" and "tigerclaw" for assault but R-23 1st as soon as i can get it.

    Everything is working fine now it seems.


    Edit: The inability to change instances is really bumming me out. I was playing on:
    game-neweden-1641-7e79304b.vpc01.us-west-2.r5external.com:25000

    And now I'm stuck on:
    game-neweden-1665-26f3ad6b.vpc01.eu-west-1.r5external.com:25000

    Yeah, there's a feedback thing I voted for here:
    http://feedback.firefallthegame.com...e-a-server-instead-of-jumping-into-a-randome-

    Yeah, that's the only way to get back but no one from NA is on at the moment on my friend list.

    I looked and I couldn't find it. I suspect what server you were on is stored server-side and it sends you back to that one.


    Edit: Yay! I'm back to US West 2! :D


    Edit: The Firefall servers are being a dick right now. My main problem is it won't let me into the zone chat channel.

    i had the same chat problem.

    but what bugered me was : the printer ate some of my resources (not much just white ones and in little quantity) due to a small error :eek: i hope its fixed now

    lucky me, i allways begin by lowest ressource first.
