    Well I do like the face wrecking lol, this game can be HARD if you try to let it be and its a nice challenge to take on more than you can handle and see how far you can get. I did join a Army [[HEX]] but they arnt very chatty ...know of any good East Coast Armies recruiting lol.

    Yea when I first started this game it took me a while to really get into what to do. but now that I know I just run and wreck run and wreck (and die of course)

    or you can get a mammoth frame and get some good plating, then you can pretty much solo any level mission.
    running through a mob of chosen or tanken with tremors activated is just....sooooo satisfying

    Yeah.

    The hotel.

    There use to be raid mobs roaming around, haven't checked it lately. There was a mob called "raid dog" that would bark at you to call down a missile and if you didnt move out of the indicator in time you exploded. I think it was sort of an easter egg/joke since it was giant hp pool npc with a get out of fire mechanic.

    There was also a point where there was a giant gate in the hotel that led into the melding. Was hoping that would end up being Firefalls Moltencore 40man. Still might but with them focusing on Serto I am not sure we will see much in the way of instanced raids... But who knows?

    It's not for everyone :P
    The game requires a pretty large time investment to be worthwhile. Most people who try it never get to the new zones and their raid events, baneclaw (raid boss), or BWA (5m instance) or high level crafting.

    I am going to be more active starting in about 3 days. However, if you want a big guild, I think BBs has 5 full guilds and their teamspeak always has like 10-30 people on it doing firefall stuff.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I really hope the arsonal frames come out soon. They look like the DPS frames I've been waiting for.

    Right now I've got dragonfly (for healing) and mammoth (for tanking) maxed out with sets of like maxed out gear. I am a bit torn about electron vs bastion for support... I know bastion is better for lowbie stuff (like all pet classes) but it doesn't scale well and electron has amazing buffs but its just like... urgh. And then for DPS the current choice is raptor vs rhino and rhino is pretty much the obvious choice except for when power field is active because of raptors instant charge while buffed.
    but the new frames, that one on the left looks like it has lighter armor and a stronger rifle. That's probably going to be mah dps frame

    edit: i feel like the alt fire ability for that rifle should be stockstrike :X

    Ugh... I'm remind of why I don't go to MMORPG.com anymore. In their review, they list "generally a work in progress" as a con to the game... while it's still in beta. YOU DON'T SAAAAAAAAY?!

    HUGE FUCKIN NEWS.
    We’re proud to announce that we’ve completed Stage 1 of Open Beta, core gameplay and stress testing, and are starting Phase 2! To introduce Stage 2, there is no better way than to share this gorgeous new UI we’re working on:

    Welcome to the new Firefall World Map User Interface! Well, at least a concept of it. The war against the Chosen has gone global! The map denotes the start of what we feel is a key new innovation for shooters (and MMOs) – Reclaim Earth, Unlock the World is our catch-phrase for a new kind of MMO, one that grows and expands not just alongside players, but because of their direct actions in the game. The first iterations of this new UI will be coming up soon.
    Stage 2 of Open Beta is about expanding the world.
    In this next stage, the name of the game is unlocking the world. We want to test the mechanics of pushing back the Melding, and taking the war to the Chosen. That’s right, instead of defending New Eden against Chosen incursions, you will now be taking the war into the Melding itself.

    Step 1 – Pushing Back the Melding
    Players will work to fuel giant Melding repulsors in each of the three pockets (now called Warfronts) to generate enough power to unleash a pulse that will push back the Melding in stages. Each stage will reveal a little more of each pocket and more playable space with ARES missions and dynamic events.

    Step 2 – Eliminating the Chosen Fortresses
    Eventually, pushing back enough of the Melding will reveal secret Chosen fortresses that must be besieged and destroyed before the Accord can establish a foothold. Destroying the Chosen will reveal new Chosen technology that can be researched and turned into new recipes for crafted gear and items.

    Step 3 – Unlocking the Entire Zone
    Once the last of the Melding is pushed back, and the Chosen defeated, the Warfront will convert to a full zone and a new story-based instance will become available to pursue, unlocking the next chapter of the story of Firefall.
    Leaderboards – Players will compete on leaderboards to see who has done the most to push back the Melding. Top ranked players will receive special rewards and commendations. They will be honored by having statues of their characters in the new capital, and in 1st place, the right to name the city itself.

    Players Choose the Path
    After testing this process with one warfront, the choice of the next warfront to unlock will be up to the players. The players will vote, with their efforts, to vie for which warfront to unlock next. In this way, the direction of the war against the Chosen is in the players hands. The story will also twist and turn, depending on the actions of the players and which areas they choose to attack and reclaim.

    The World is Also Dynamic
    It’s not just zones that are filled with dynamic events. The entire globe will be dynamic, with hotspots, mysteries and other anomalies that will appear from time to time on the new world map. Chase them down and experience them before they fade away.

    The World Changes Permanently and Grows With You
    As players unlock the world, the choice of which warfront to unlock will change the world permanently. Neglected warfronts can also be subject to total Chosen counterattack, shutting down that warfront entirely, at least for weeks or months.
    And because of our flexible and horizontally biased progression, we never leave old zones behind. All zones remain playable, fun and useful to the player, making this the first MMO that truly gets bigger the more you play. In Firefall, the whole world will always matter, no matter how advanced you are as a player.

    Welcome to Stage 2 of Open Beta
    We’ve arrived, it’s time to start testing new mechanics in a grander and fuller version of Firefall than ever before. Please join us over the coming months as we pull back the veil of the Melding and shape a world, together.


    Also, intro to the arsenal.

    So are they changing how the instanced areas work?

    When I was in before you had to grind up a shit ton of mats to create a key. Then once you were in the instance you had to grind up 4000 melded crystite just to push the melding back for 10 minutes before it collapsed back on you. Then you had to come up with another 4000 (might have been 2000) melded crystite to push it back again. The way it was before was pretty damn lame and I could see why less than 8% of the player base even bothered with it.

    Am at a bit of a loss. So ive been playing around with the firecat since like forever now, and I have 10 tokens to buy another frame I love the dread so I was thinking either the rhino or mammoth but I got no idea what would be better. This would just be for casual solo play nothing serious. Edit: I like to point out i'm sitting at the frame selection thingy flipping between the two, HALPS!

    SSolo ? Mammoth ! It's got high HP and high DPS, prefect for ARES and such.

  19. #1579
    The Arsenal seems a bit lame to me to be frank. Little change from the archetype. The armor is same-ish. I don't exactly get excited by it.

    ???

    You had to push it back like 3 times in a row in order to get to the raid event. If you let it collapse after the first push back then you wasted your first 4000. You are suppose to put it in and then rush to the next repuslor ect till you got to the 10 man event at the end...
    edit: You are joking right? Like, I feel really bad that you gave away your account without getting to try the raid events. You should have asked me how they work.
