Wait so they didn't change the flickering, seizure inducing menu screens?

I'm going to check that out myself but even if it's really that far, people can still shoot the shit out of the guy if he's out in the open. it doesn't matter. 
 
Also I was kinda hoping for the clan stuff to be added in this update. I think they were talking about clan officers and stuff.

That has to be a typo. No way Medics can revive their teammates all over the battlefield. People would die and instantly stand up again. lol

Is the update live? I'm not getting anything when going online.

#8 Posted by McQuinn (651 posts) -

Sounds like they just made the medic gun a lot more like the one from killzone 2. Which I really like.

It goes live sometime next week. And yeah, they nerfed this update. It was supposed to have a whole bunch of other stuff, like being able to make people officers for your clan.
 
I don't even know who they are anymore.

Well, Call of Duty doesn't have any of that stuff, so I guess they figured they didn't need it either.
 
Seriously, they took out so much. It's kind of funny watching the internet explode with anger at GG for removing everything that made KZ2 good.

Ya they really goofed up the multi right out of the gate. They are patching back most of the stuff like custom games......they just need to hurry the fuck up about that. Not sure if they did some of that stuff to "CoDify" the game up. Maybe they were cramming towards the end of the dev cycle and decided to patch in post release. Either way they need to do work. I want my custom games.

I think they need to nerf Infiltrators and rocket launchers:

  • Since the infiltrator can disguise, he really shouldn't get the same weapons everyone else gets.
  • Rocket launchers replacing pistols (as opposed to primaries) did nothing to reduce Killzone 2's rocket spam.

Speaking of that, custom games were supposed to be added in this patch. I don't know where that is, but according to this post, it isn't going to be in 1.04.
 
Man, what the hell are they doing over there?

@extremeradical: Ya the rocket spam is ridiculous. Maybe they should tie it to a certain class. I'm not sure how they can deal with this, but the grenade spamming in most games has become fucking retarded. I don't think you can do much about it though because the person usually dies quick and spawns in the same area via tact position and spams grenades again. Man that stuff is stupid. It makes Halo and CoD's frag fest look tame.

At least when they used up all their rockets they had to switch to their pistol. Now when someone blows through their ordinance they can switch to an assault rife. 
 
It makes no bloody sense.

Well it's 20 in game meters. It's a bit tricky how that stuff works, but in practice it should be pretty much the same as in KZ2. That's what a developer said on the forums.

GG released their post beta report where they talk about the changes coming in multiple patches over time. They aren't going to release a single big patch but rather put things out in smaller chunks. It's faster and easier for them that way and they can prioritize more. Custom games are probably far down the list, we are talking about months if I had to guess. I'm glad I didn't play KZ2 or otherwise I'd probably be pissed about all the stuff they took out.
