    I like the game well kinda i didnīt used too because they changed too many things like dumbed down things, you could customize weapons, abilities and battleframes and they removed other things.

    Things i donīt like about the game. you need pay real money or farm shitloads of crystite and convert to credits for red beans to get more battleframe skins because of you start of with 4 battleframe skins Same thing goes for hairsstyles, battleframe paterns and to unlock other battleframes you need to lvl up a frame to lvl 40 or farm alot of crystite and convert it credits and use credits to buy a pilot license at market.

    overall I'm liking Firefall again right now, mainly because there's actual story stuff you can follow, albeit they're mainly tied to the new Ares jobs. I agree that R5 took dumbed down resources & crafting a bit too much, however I'd think anyone could agree that a QL range from 1-1000 was nuts, even with blending. As for crafting, the global constraint system feels eh now, mainly because it just encouraged people to kill their abilities in their quest to min/max their guns and HP and just lead to bland, cookie-cutter builds all over the place. Granted same thing is going to happen with the new system, but at least abilities can be leveled up properly now along with guns & stuff.

    I'm also glad they took what feels like a lot of the time-gating out when it comes to crafting, if anyone remembers how long it took to craft your average guns & stuff. Yes, I'm aware that they merely changed the gating from time to resources (especially RP), but I would rather be able to speed stuff up by doing well, than just sit there waiting or cough up the beans for it. I'm also happy to see that they ditched the friggen profession system. If there's any crafting specialization, I feel that it should be implicit, not explicit.

    They do need to fix the pilot token business though. Locking new frame unlocks behind a max lvl barrier just feels so, eeeehhhh. For me, I'd rather just go 5 tokens at 20 (or rather one token for every 4 levels up to 20), then the other 5 at 40. Or heck, just hand out 10 free tokens for completing the initial campaign. That way, people will get their first 2-3 unlocks early on like before, so the whole unlock business doesn't feel as bad. Also, escort jobs can go DIAF as per usual. Finally, they need to fix the open world Ares mission not spawning as often as they feel like they should in Coral Forest, at least the lvl 15-24 areas.

    And overall, for good or for ill, at least R5 should friggen stick to a plan this time now that it's actually "launching".

    tl;dr
    Firefall feels fun, can be a mixed bag, watch streams if ya want, official forums can be good or full of vets PO'd about the changes.

    Hoping that Antarctica comes back and not stay as an instance. Miss the place.
    Messing around.

    You can still do all that customization, even much more than you could before with the new mod system.

    The job board missions are pretty bad in all honesty. Not only do they basically play out the same regardless of what level you're at (expect to do the same jobs that you're doing in copacabana now when you reach Devil's Tusk) but they're just poorly made in general.

    The job objectives spawns are just all over the place. Pick up mission in Shanty Town, run to trans hub so you can talk to some jackass, then run to Thump dump so you can defend against a hisser wave, then run all the way back to Shanty town so you can deliver your crate of hisser dicks to some other guy. It's just tedious. And don't even get me started on escort AI.

    Lol, ok about escort (but I have found only one bugged for now) but the other things are not so true...
    You have to learn more to use the GLIDE, I'm flying from one point to another in every quest and it takes me mhm... max 3min? I don't think it's a lot.
    I don't know english very well because i'm italian

    I may have to agree with this although I've been spamming the hell out of them. Despite the ARES job board needing a few tweaks here and there it is currently buggy and sluggish. I can understand if anyone is new to the game and doesn't own a bike which is a MUST. Gliding does help a lot too. Becomes a little fun getting to high spots and glide off into the melding.

    As for me spamming the jobs I just want the Fedora Hat and Aviators.

    I think this screen should paint a good picture.



    Don't think that Chosen squad had a say in this at the Bay of Bones.

    Yeah escort missions are the worst. The NPCs die off so fast! Not to mention it's almost unbearable on rocky terrain where the pathfinding flips out. I hope they are addressing the escort missions soon.

    yo im kind of lost, i haven't looked up anything about this game, so i dont know whats to be expected at later levels.
    all im doing atm is heading to job boards and doing 1 quest at a time, or just randomly dropping a thumper and completing it.
