Here is the snipet just so we have it here in the thread.

You'll see this as part of Monday's Weekly Dev Activities post.
Update: Some additional clarification by Spork

2) Surge will need to be manually disabled (or disabled by stamina depletion, of course) before a weapon can be drawn. This is by design, since allowing a weapon to be drawn while still surged allows for many of the same combat benefits as before.

Yes, all of them will start using the gauss rifle, which is arguably the best assualt rifle from close to medium range. All the newblets will start bitching about that, just wait and see.

At least I think its the best, I constantly rush lasher and mcg users with it and come out on top 3-4 times out of 5, but I do play a ton and know how to dodge and "exploit" the lag delay properly to avoid fire at close range (ie how to NOT take damage when your computer thinks you are behind someone but theirs doesnt). The cycler and the pulsar are far less effective at close combat due to their higher ttks.

Also something alot of you dont think about, the muzzle flash of a guass shoved in their face effectivley blinds them and makes yor target profile about twice as big as with a cycler or pulsar, that and the higher ttk make it a GREAT weapon, much more versitile than the jackhammer.

That's stupid. I'm opposed to this entirely and it looks like I'll be dropping surge, as even as it stands running from place to place is useful, closing gaps will now be undoable. Why can't they just fix the warping? What person uses surge defensively? If you waste time running away, you're more then likely to get shot in the back, not to mention you just gave your opponent the ability to stay alive longer. In a world in which you can not die, defensive actions are pointless.

Fix the warping, save the surge.

No more surging boomer runs for my cloaker.

I think they should allow you to carry an ACE while surging. No one complains about that...

Hey man you can still surge into spawn room, draw it and plant it, run off then detonate it. You can just turn surge off when your there, it only takes about .3 of a second

I am astonished at the pure stupidity that it must take to pick that choice out of all the vastly superrior ideas in reguards to the surge/warping problem

Simply astonishing. Well, its been fun.. Time for another game it seems

Thats actually kinda funny considering my main character is an Infiltrator. Try again?

At any rate, its time to hit them in the pocketbook and Cancel. You dont change something so core to the game this long after release because you are so god damn lazy you cant muster what is necessary to fix it properly. I just am not going to give these retards my money anymore. I suggest anyone that feels the same also "vote" with thier pocketbook

Surge was turning the game into quake, I'm glad it got nerfed, you can still use it to get behind the enemy quickly when outside and flank them, that's what I used it for when I had it anyways.
