There's always a chance. These will definitely not be the last sights we ever put in the game...

There will be different color options for the red dot 1x and 2x. Not custom colors, but a variety of colors.

That would be an awesome tool to put at the player's finger tips. But it ultimately takes a lot of work from UI and Code to put a feature like that in.

Not that it will never happen, though. It just takes time.

The gates rotate when the continent unlocks, so I'm not sure how you're experiencing this.

If it has a driver and you want to help them get more xp sure.

I stand corrected! Just verified that it is in fact 30% now, must have missed that change, thanks!

We have that already, and it's getting buffed/fixed. Currently anytime someone leaves your vehicle and gets a kill within a couple minutes you'll get a "deploy bonus". This is being renamed in the next patch to "Transport Assist" to be more intuitive. It's also being buffed to 100 xp for each transport assist. And we're working on fixing a bug with it where if the driver leaves the vehicle or dies the assist credit stops working. So currently you get the bonus only if you stay in the vehicle, which is not ideal and we'll be fixing that shortly. So gal pilots, gate crashers, valk pilots, and even some flash/harasser drivers can rejoice.

The assist works just by entering the vehicle and exiting it, you don't have to do do any minimum time or anything like that, but it does require the transported player to get a kill after having exited your vehicle.

Here's a better view of all 3 faction specific reticles. Keep in mind that colors and sizes are not set in stone.

Oh what a wonderful word lag..

You get a 20% XP bonus for fighting on an Alert continent. So you'd potentially get more certs by farming on the Alert continent, especially if your faction was under pop there with the underpop bonus.

It's going to be hard for me to respond if we keep broadening the topic. We can certainly debate popularity, server merges, or how good the Valkyrie is all day but it's not relevant to current technical issues.

You are passionate about PS2 and I get that but I'm trying to explain what we see and what we are doing. This is what we DO for a living. No one is burying their head in the sand hoping everything is ok or the problem will just go away. No one has gone "Eh I don't feel like worrying on this problem people complain about every single day."

Your advice here to the team is honestly "try harder" and "it should have been done already?"

We certainly appreciate the feedback. We'll continue to do what we can to resolve the issue.

I'm pretty certain I didn't say it was a minor problem. What I stated was this affects some (not all) people which isn't my opinion. If it affected every single person all the time, no one would be playing the game. Based on the numbers I'm seeing right now this isn't the case.

Also if you'll review my statements over the last 2 weeks you'll see me use the phrase "top priority" at least a dozen times. Everyone who is qualified to work on this issue is working on it.

There aren't current plans to replace FNO with SOE right now but I'd be more than happy to work with some of our existing streamers. Maggie never once complained about it because she loved it, but FNO is a metric crap ton of work to produce and organize.

Between Higby Pls, and Work in Progress we've activated who we can on the Dev side. For PlanetSide 2, we are just going to have empower folks within the community to experiment with it.

That's at least a week of work. Higby uses admin commands, so we would have to make similar non-admin commands that only work on test and not live. Adding a cooldown and a queue is a lot of work. Adding an environment specific button is also non-trivial.

That's basically the same thing as doing "/addallitems". It lags the server and can cause crashes.

We wish this were as simple as a server side memory leak but it isn't. what is impacting people is only doing it to some folks some of the time.

While I cannot confirm nor deny the existence or lack of a nuclear fallout shelter I can openly deny that SOE is part of the Illuminati. Many of our employees just belong to the same social club which has a mandatory dress code of robes and conducts meetings in latin.

Also if you could look out your window for just a second there is something interesting you need to see...
