There will be some good news regarding certifications tomorrow. I just love this evil game I play...
Is it just me or could this be something even bigger than the Lodestar? Oh those devs are so cruel and yet so kind.

Remember, people can go inside the vehicle that is in the Lodestar, hence, full Sunderer.

Fixing certs? Weeehooo!

I'm really excited about the rearm/repair feature.

I think every continent has only 1 dropship center, therefore this will make it a bit easier on the other 2 empires who don't happen to possess that single base.

Yeah they certainly will change the battle dynamics on a lot of continents like Cyssor, Hossin, Amerish and Forseral where one side gets the dropship centre with hardly any effort, and the other side has a crippled air force due to the scant amount of air towers.

I wonder if it can carry a reaver... or mosquito. I know it would be useful in some situation. I can't think of any right now. The Lodestar would be better if it could drop some sort of bomb, I think. But that would make it better than the Lib. Well that will never happen...It's fun to think about though.

I just realized. What if an AMS was in a Lodestar, went over an Amp Station (not a Techplant, or it would deconstruct because of the airpads) and dropped? Spawn point right at the CC. Uh-oh spa-fucking-gettios.

The sheer speed that the base would be pwnzed at, even WITH full defenses and a zerg present, is almost CRIMINAL.

I don't think you deploy an AMS on top of buildings.

But can you deploy the AMS cloak feild in the bay and then fly. And leave just enough room for hte cockpit to see out. Hence it only haveing thin bars around it. which means cloaker pilots. then you fly is over a small platoon of men and drop the Ams right on ther heads killing them instantly and blowing hte rest up. Precision AMS bombing

Imagine the horror as that big fat thing "uncloaks"(the AMS feild is no longer around it) and a then all they see is the growing size of the underside of an AMS thats about to land on them and explode.

Oh wait, theyd never see the ams coming!







Edit: remember they said you can hit G at any time and dump the vehicle. So you dont have to wait for it to land.

Which means it needs to be in the AMS Router cert so you can get your own drive it in the bay deploy it hit G and have the vehicle be picked up or get out get in to the lodestar and have it pick it up and off you go.

Based on the fact that vehicle passengers loaded into the Galaxy can't exit their personal vehicle, fire weapons, or even see the correct view from the vehicle, I doubt you will be able to deploy an AMS or use any vehicle features while riding in the Lodestar cargo bay.

It's also something of a balance issue. Since the Lodestar alone will likely change game tactics dramatically, they'd be pushing it pretty far to allow Sunderers to fly AND shoot, let alone AMSes that can spawn troops directly onto enemy bases.
