Re: Matt Higby Live on Saturday!

-What data is SOE using to determine whether or not ground mobile spawn vehicles (AMS) should be in the game?

-What considerations are being made to allow more varied game play in the vein of spec ops (i.e. Preparing locations, especially large bases, for the coming battle to be defended such as we did in PS1 using equipment given to the engineers using the ACE, etc.)

What are their plans for infantry collision detection? Both Friendly - Enemy and Friendly - Friendly.

any word on when they may fix the FOV when in Vehicles,using any resolution higher then 1920 x 1080

just to be clear,when ground and pounding the FOV is fine,and so are the frame rates

Re: Matt Higby Live on Saturday!

Regarding Empire Differentiation:

- Any plans to bring the Infantry AV Lancer, Phoenix and Stryker back? They looked and operated differently, adding to the ES feel (the current Rocket Launchers are exactly the same across Empires, and feel simply like Decimators from PS1; ie, common pool)

- Same question as above but in regards to AA Maxes: are all to have the same Burster mechanic? No Starfire trails to light up the sky?

Thus far in Beta, the Empires feel extremely similar. Even Tank vs. Tank. The TR weapons don't, as yet, feel like a spray of bullets compared to the other factions, and the VS don't provide the laser light show which was instantly recognizable from the original (pulsar laser shot; lancer rounds; starfire tracers; magrider PPA; etc etc)

Re: Matt Higby Live on Saturday!

I would be interested to hear something about:

-The plans for making the metagame relevant.
-The plans for making the battles massive and organized.
-The plans for stabilizing territorial control.

Re: Matt Higby Live on Saturday!

1) Will the class system get more flexible and customizable than we have now, and if so how? OR a more specific question will we eventually get the ability to choose our loadouts in a way that's more reminiscent of what was possible in PS1 with the inventory system.

2) How soon before we get to see/test the full cert tree? ..and could he go into some details of what we can expect for each class. Or if he's short on time he can just explain about the Infiltrator

3) Balance issues: (where does the dev team feel they're at with these things)
IRNV scope
Air vs ground / Air vs AA
Max suits (getting a timer?)
Resupply terminals/healing/self healing(or lack thereof)

4) What plans are there to make the game feel more strategic, there's no lock out of continents like PS1 and just seems like a never ending back and forth base swap atm.

Re: Matt Higby Live on Saturday!

-Any idea when we might get to test out Prone (this was mentioned as something that could be tested in Beta to see if it felt right)?

-What are the current thoughts on developing systems for micro/macro level strategy? (i.e. they introduced hack timer versus LLU/base benefits/cont benefits/lattice system in PS1)

Re: Matt Higby Live on Saturday!

I would like to know about how what he thinks about the game in it's current state versus what he envisions for the release.

I'd also like him to talk about how they filter the community feedback and the empire bias that occurs when people provide their feedback.

Also, I feel that atm the game balance and resource system tends to favor small outfits that consist of friends / people who are more concerned with playing together and aren't concerned with fulfilling a specific role rather than larger combined arms outfits that have people in groups dedicated to specific roles. I would like to know if he feels the same and where he stands on the large combined arms outfits vs outfits of friends.

-Any thoughts for putting in some sort of VR location so you can test out different weapons/vehicles upgrades before buying them?

Re: Matt Higby Live on Saturday!

I would like a virtual training room to test a vehicles/weapons as well

Nvm, just realized its over already .
