    Oshur Launch Thoughts
    Hey there, just wanted to take a moment to remark on how amazing the reception to Oshur has been so far. It's rare to see this level of excitement and (dare I say) satisfaction with the gameplay to come out of an update. While there's still plenty of work to be done on the continent and its systems, the comments regarding how reminiscent Oshur is of PlanetSide 2's early glory, have been heartening and much appreciated.

    There are certainly folks who don't have an interest in the type of gameplay being fostered on the continent, and that's totally valid. We sought to create an logistics heavy, strategy rich, and combined arms experience with Oshur, and the groundswell of support makes it seem like we landed pretty close to that mark. So thank you all for giving us (and Oshur) a chance, and we'll be keeping an eye out for more feedback as things become less new and shiny, and the meta of the continent starts to settle.

    Interlink Facilities
    • Changes have been made to the Interlink Facilities throughout the continent. The goal for the changes are mainly to give defenders more room to push out of the spawn room, and interact with more of the facility and its surroundings.
    • A hallway shield has been added to all Interlinks, and the cover inside has been adjusted to allow for more progression pushing from the hallway.
    • The interior space has been segmented more, closing off some longer sight lines, and making flow around the capture point a bit better.
    • Imbanon Interlink, Dekat Interlink, and Anat Interlink all have functional teleporters that take you to safe rooms outside the main structure. Other interlinks should receive teleporters when there's time.
    • Additional cover from aircraft has been added on the roof of the spawn room and the main structure.
    • The spawn room now has a sniper's perch on the top floor, to make it easier to clear the rooftop approach.
    • Bollards have been added to the four main entrances to help prevent vehicles from entering.
