What's he doing to help the war effort other than yelling condescending crap over the open mic?

Meanwhile:

I don't think VS being purple is the root cause of them not being ultra super popular. Spyro the Dragon is purple, and he is reasonably popular.

ALSO: The teal racing stripes stay or they get replaced with purple ones. It is a requirement that your faction color be SOMEWHERE on your vehicles. For VS that means purple or teal. For NC that means blue or yellow. For TR that means red, because black is too basic to use as our racing stripe.

Too bright? you've got to be kidding.
You lot blend like a chameleon.
Some of the NC gear looks like you are wearing glow sticks.

VS got a few balance checks and the kids empire hopped or left to chase the next butterfly that caught their attention.

And I've not yet seen a camo in the store yet that makes the NC or TR look like the VS (Camel anyone)
Not to mention the NS "common pool" weapons available that are yet to sound like the VS.

If NS sold a weapon that sounded like plasma shots, I'd buy it. hahaha

That being said, bear in mind the NS weapons sound like neither TR nor NC nor VS... but they sure as hell don't sound like VS.

Hopefully we'll get some model changes too; the MAX in particular looks stupid.
But I like fighting giant enemy crabs

Like seriously, if I could have one alteration to the game it would be to either mute the "faction commander" voice-overs or just get that one line deleted. It is the stupidest line in the entire game and the most unprofessional statement from an otherwise very professional-sounding faction.

And I could never stand the NC because of their voice macros. Sound like a motley crew of unprofessional dimwits.

"I think I broke it!" ...I think you did too.

Re: Vanu aesthetics buff incoming (colour and camo)


We got some updates!

Here are the before and after pics of the Vanu classes with the colour changes (more grey, less teal basically)

And here are the new camo coverages for each class.

And here is the reddit discussion about this.

A successful badassification in my opinion!

I think color changing will fix this, yep! Definitely the problem! /facepalm
OK so maybe it won't be the sole change responsible for fixing the problem. But then what else is needed in addition? Please, let us know!

Why? I'd prefer camouflage actually be, you know, camouflage.

I was just saying you are not the only faction that has "racing stripes." You'll get 'em one color or another, but you'll get 'em.

Re: Vanu aesthetics buff incoming (colour and camo)


I think the VS voice over should be the guy from the Leviathan trailer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vxxnq5YAVHw

TR should get Total Biscuit. Not because I think he is the best representation of the TR, but because he just sort of sounds like some pompous general calling the shots. Also he does pretty good VO.

NC, I have no idea. Probably Higby as Nanite Ned.
