    I used to love the game had some epic fights on the dock map with my squad working to take out mechs

    Haha i love how the mechs were 2 pilots as well, made it harder to use and less effective if you tried to solo it.

    APC launching onto titans though, that was something else and then progressing to storm a titan to take out its core and then running for your life as it exploded around you haha! I'll never forget those moments.

    I don't miss the lag though :cry:

    This really needs looked at as well, the drones are virtually silent and hard to spot, most people playing infantry rarely notice an enemy drone even if its low to the ground, in a tank you've virtually no chance of spotting it.

    Not unlocked the drone yet. What level does that unlock at?

    Looks pretty useful.

    nahh the less tanks kicking around the better ( but you might be right)

    it will only respawn 30 seconds later

    what does need looking at is tank and helicopter spawn times or numbers way way to many you kill one and a new one is back nearly instantly

    Nearly instantly? The countdown for a new tank is close to 2 minutes if you get destroyed in one.

    and now they dont have to travel all the way from the back

    and thats your counter when someone else dies you can grab a tank in under a minutes sometimes parachuted straight to the front

    Its rare that people get the chance to parachute them in as they basically vanish almost immediately when theyre available from the spawn menu. People that get killed in tanks usually try and grab the next one so they stay in the spawn screen hammering the button to grab it once it's available. Much better chance of geting one like that than using the callin screen.

    I think a few months down the line more people will move to portal with 2042 weapons ect but very limited vehicle options on smaller maps

    The game currently has the worst user score of the year on Steam, thanks to over 26,000 “mostly negative” reviews.
