    Its up... from 3:00PM to 10:30PM Qld time.

    Also there seems to be references in the game assets of a 50 vs 50 game mode coming.

    I'm finding this far more fun than any other mode - any idea why it's only temporary?

    50v50 mode sucks a bit, needs team text chat or realistic verbal comms (ie distance limited).
    Duo and squad is way better. :)

    yea i wasnt a fan of the 50 v 50 duo much more exciting, 50v 50 would need a smaller map to be really interesting

    They announced it was temporary because they didn't know if it was going to be popular. I would think that its exceeded their expectations, and that it will be a permanent addition to the game.

    That said, its not perfect. I would love to see on the main map red/green crosses where team members have died/downed. This would give natural focus points for the rest of the team. Sometimes you walk for a long time seeing your team numbers just drop and you have no idea where the battles are happening. Team comms needs to handle medical/ammo requests and thanks/awesome/boo. Team voice comms would just be abused unfortunately, same with textual chat. Something like Tribes VGS could work well both for inter and intra team comms. Much more so that the current dance for saying 'thanks' or whatever. Lastly I would love to see 5 or even 10 person squads for 50vs50.

    50v50 is my favourite mode when playing with randoms. Voice comms becomes less of an issue and there's no team damage which gets rid of the griefers. Also great for target practice, and you definitely rack up the kills which improves the fun factor. The addition of the game stats is a good to check up on your accuracy improvements over time.

    I wish you could do inventory management without going into the inventory menu. Re-arranging weapon slots and dropping items would be way better with shortcut keys. Unless it's already there and I'm missing something?

    Really disappointing 50:50 is gone :( i can't see why they would offer it then remove it like that.

    Epic had a brief slip-up... but it allowed a few lucky folks to get a taste of the future shooting model... ie no rng...



    I'm looking forward to this change.

    WTF is this shit, no rego at all when the enemy is jumping? Just started playing and I can be shooting my ass off at a person next to me and as long as they are jumping I cannot hit them at all... seems rather pathetic. One guy downed 4 of us all shooting at him as he was jumping around like an idiot.

    Jumping guys should be easy to hit as you know where they'll land.
