EDIT: I see you found it. A basic guideline they should follow is not to create an implant that negates something someone put many hours into certing up to high levels of usefulness. Surge would be a good example of such an implant that would be acceptable. Quick burst of speed where you cannot use a weapon during it's use and doesn't really overshadow anyone's hard earned abilities other than requiring players to shoot a fast moving target that can't fire back.

Don't make them universal.

Make these ideas into skills for specific classes.

* It will make more sense.
* Classes need more depth.
* It will still cost players certs to buy them.
* Players will appreciate their permanence.
* It will be infinitely easier to balance them.

Good move. The amount of people saying they would quit altogether was kind of nuts.

What a relief.

I'm so happy, I could just shoot someone in the face with lasers (in the kindest of ways).

Give them like 50-75% chance to succeed. I believe alot of players don't like elements of the gameplay removed 100% of the time with implants.
God no! Nothing is worse than RNG, especially in a competitive game. You should not be winning or loosing battles based the luck of the draw, or elements that are out of your control.

The only things you have control over is your own loadout and your actions... everything else, in this game, is out of your control... but I get what your saying

If they are going back to the drawing board I wonder how long it will take for them to come up with something new.
Last effort took 6mths.

And why did it take until a week before release for us to find out what they were.
Could have saved them a heap of time.
Hope they dont make the same mistake again, they must be very disappointed in the time they have wasted.

Roadmap, a new way to interact with the development team providing feedback on game direction, updates and content. Be a part of the development process!

No, classes need less depth. Every soldier likewise needs more depth.

See? we can disagree! sharply, without compromise!

Implants should be permanent and something you cert, not pay for with SC. If they want to keep players happy and playing, they need to make the game better, not just pile on things to buy for real money.

I'm glad to see they changed their mind. With the resource revamp I was hoping they'd roll implants into that system.

Also I was very disappointed in the lazy design of them. Sure we can have a few passive implants, but the real goal of implants should be based around active abilities. Things that change the gameplay due to a player's choice rather than just some buff they happened to equip. I digress since there's a ton of good ideas in the implant thread on the roadmap. It's like they didn't even read any of the awesome suggestions.

As always, thank you for all for your feedback!
