Battlefront website

Post by Chilledenuff » Thu Feb 02, 2012 9:35 am

Couple of links:

article on 'stepping up' to version 3

quick reference sheet

Still a beast of a look up sheet, haven't read the article yet but looks like it'll entertain me.

All good stuff. Got the email update in the middle of the night. Kept me amused for a third of my commute. It's a good job the Bracknell > Reading train sits at Reading for 20 minutes and my connection isn't for half an hour. I was so absorbed reading the changes PDF that it was a good 5 minutes before I realised everyone had disembarked and I was sat alone on a terminated train... :-s

yeah, i've had a read this morning. Some good changes. A few of note:

Independent teams have taken a bit of a hit to stop abuse but is sensible.
Snipers now are much more of a choice as it's not instant death if enemy move in
You can dig in whilst pinned down
Bunker Busters can only hit vehicles that are bogged down or bailed out

The bunker buster bit missed out the fact that it's a 'moving' bunker buster that has to hit bogged or bailed tanks. A stationary bunker buster can hit moving targets.

Really? I hope there aren't too many more mistakes like that, even so it's a nice document. Definately an interesting read. No wholesale changes for the sake of it. Just tweaks to improve the game and close some loopholes

I'm pretty sure it's just the article that is badly worded the quick reference sheet seems to be correct.

The extended AA range will make up for my AA tanks having to stick with the 2iC.

Heading to Reading Saturday, if Eclectic receive their mini books by then.

Just phoned Eclectic games. He says he will have them Wednesday next week.

They are not even being dispatched from BF until Friday (tomorrow), expected to arrive on Monday then general release on the following Saturday, although Eclectic will be putting them out early on the Wednesday.
