The 1.4 patch is pretty nice!

Along with the bonuses this week. I wanted to try and rekindle some dust love in the forms. :)

Anyone enjoying on this?

This thread is weak. But anyways, I haven't played since it officially launched on PSN because I have no one to play with. Maybe I'll get back on this week.

I tried to enjoy this game, but I couldn't get into it. I also hated that weird layout system.

I'm still playing. The new patch kind of messed up my shotgun mojo though. Speed tanking no longer seems to be viable; it's all about pure HP tanking now:/

That & shields. I just started running shotgun but I've been rocking a slower, but shield heavier (242) medium build. It's been good so far, so I guess I lucked out :)

Profile dampening also helps.

Yeah, I've always been primarily an assault shotgunner (Minmatar Assault). Before this patch I was using an enhanced kinetic catalyzer and a basic ferroscale plate in my low slots, but now that you can't dodge/evade gunfire with speed anymore, I've had to change things up a bit. Before the patch, I was running a little HP-light and just using skill/speed to mitigate damage. Now, I've tanked out my shields (at 383 shield HP on the ADV Minmatar Assault suit) and my low slots are a basic profile dampener and a cardiac regulator. The key now seems to be to avoid detection, use a scanner (or have one in your squad) and be really sneaky. With the tacnet changes they've made, a scanner has become a super useful tool to have; I use them on my SG scout, AR logi, and AR assault fits, but I can't fit one on my SG assault fit yet.
