    Sept. 7, 2017 – PTS Update

    Note: These updates are currently on the Public Test Server, but weren’t posted during the update.

    Meta
    Additional polish and improvements to the faction points dropdown area were made to support the new continent locking mechanics. Additional information on the upcoming update can be found in a previous dev article here: https://www.planetside2.com/news/ps2-critical-mass-development-update-2017

    We’ve drastically changed how continent selection from login works internally, and overpopulation should now be funneled into the VR training room if there are no continents capable of supporting additional faction population. If you encounter any unusual behaviors when attempting to log into a continent or zone into a new one, please let us know.

    Infantry
    GODSAW
    AP firing mode damage from 100-91 to 125 at all ranges.

    Safe Fall
    Rank 5: Collision damage protection from 20% to 50%
    Dev Note: Minor adjustment that makes this effect more noticeable in some situations.

    Ocular Shield
    Bug fix: Damaging targets that have Ocular Shield equipped with small arms weapons will no longer trigger a resist icon.

    Vehicles
    Dev note: These adjustments continue to push the air game toward a relationship similar Live for ESF, while increasing the effectiveness of the remaining Valkyrie weapons, and bringing Liberator weapons more in line with the new vehicle health and resistances. Expect additional adjustments to be made, particularly to the Liberator, in the future.

    Racer and Rival Chassis
    Increased the handling responsiveness for Lightning, Prowler, and Vanguard when these chassis are equipped.
