    I haven't played for a couple years now, wanted to come back in, how are we doing in terms of balance and population?
    When I asked last time it was just after the heavy crossbow was released and many players told me to hold off, so I did. Im asking because I am trying to introduce a friend to the game, want a good feel for the state of things before we jump in.

    Fairness lately. The heavy bow is used as often: NSX Daimyo. I haven't died from 1 this month. Maybe.
    Factions are equal for us west. NC still needs more vet /region leaders.

    Best suggestion for your friend is to tell them how to read map redeploy to hot spots fast solo. & that all the extreme vets die all the time too. So dying is part of the game.

    Server has been semi lag lately, due to the aresonal update. I find it entertaining tbh since I play on laptop anyways. Not like best FPS is my theme yet. Server lag is being fixed & only happens here or there. Mostly not laggy. Lots of new items lately.

    BF2042 & Lost Ark aren't doing well. So it's not like the PC genre has many options right now. Path of Exile is the other game I play moderately. Waiting for May season.

    If you can actually log in (log in error is rampant at the moment) you can usually have a few hours of fun,
    But then the new map 'Oshur' will unlock and ruin it!
    But until oshur makes everyone log off you should have some fun!

    There are new empire specific vehicle top turrets which are fun!
    (For MBT, sunderer, ant and harasser)
    Trawler for NC which fires slow but hits hard, Pallisade for TR which fires fast, and pariah for VS which specialises at long range
    (Also NSO get one too, buts it's bad, don't use it :p)

    For all the faults and the many to come with future patches it is still worth playing :)

    The server lag makes the game unplayable with minimal load on some servers. I'd recommend going free to play for now.

    Game is unplayable. Lags like 1997.

    I know right?!?! Check the Bug and Discussion forums -- they're loaded with server issues.

    30 second latency issues (yes, you read that right)...

    The condition of the game depends on the server. Somebody forgot to stoke the fire for Connery's steam powered server, but Emerald seems to be running ok.

    cobalt seems fine on my end, appearantly lots of issues on connery ..
    personaly still not happy with overall I-V-A balance... MAXs imho got shafted and not worth spawning and the moment
    AA game is still and has been unbalanced for years ..
    Infantry still lacking in AV capability ...
    flying an ESF is a litteral pain on my left hand´s wrist ... so screw that ..

    is the game worth to play? .. eh i play it on and off, but it definetively has a fair number of constructionsites to be done

    Good. GAWD. I just read that forum and Oh. My. GAWD.

    You (WALL3) are having to do their job while RPG distracts with the old "You didnt fill out the right form" routine?

    Holy hell. It's been weeks of Connery being borked. Weeks. ALL players experiencing it.

    Did I just walk into the Department of Motor Vehicles?
