Of course no weapon balancing is ever truly finished, but for the time being we will be removing the weapon test districtand substituting it with:


TWO NEW TTK TEST DISTRICTS


Since my time here with the company, I and many others have looked at and debated the merits of a longer or shorter TTKand its relationship with players expectations and the weapons they chose touse. Forum chats and feedback have been present for some time now and the upcoming month of September, you thecommunity will have a chance to test out two TTK districts. One of the districts will contain RTW configuration, the other will contain apredetermined set up which will allow you the player, a chance to try out different TTK times and compare if they are better or worse than what ispresent in game as well as provide us statistical data on what was being used,how long and etc.


We will not only be reviewing forum feedback but will also have survey questionnaires sent to random players requesting more detailed information on their experiences between each test district.


As you can see we have packed in a fair amount of stuff for you to test, enjoy and customize. Stay tuned for updates regarding our TTK findings and updates as they happen.


Till next time citizens,

MoK

Will be glad to get a RABID and MANIC, but also sad to see the end of the Season Pass. Getting new weapons/kits/clothing every month was a bonus, although I'm not sure about getting the Revelations Pack since the IO GROWL doesn't really suit me.

Love everything about the new Revelations pack. Can't wait for the rest of it to be unlocked!
Can't say I'm sad about not getting the previous Season Pass pack. The car and guns looked and felt crappy (Used them in testing district).
The skins however, are quite nice.

I think I'm the near opposite; aside from the IO Growl, which while an impressive looking and handling vehicle, doesn't suit my player-style, the Revelations Pack doesn't excite me, while the Juggernaut Pack did. The fully armoured Citadel/Espacio, the trio of Steyr-based weapons (my country uses the Steyr as is MBR), all made it full of awesome for me. (Okay the clothing part of the pack was somewhat "meh" especially with a name like Juggernaut and after seeing the concept images on the forums like this;

Yea, but they already have that one clothing pack that's similar to IRL Juggernaut.
Forgot what it's called. Kinda lazy to go check.
I personally think that the AR from the Jug pack is great. All other guns blow.

The two similiar armour packs are the Tactical and Armoured Packs, which when put together can make an impressive Juggernaut, but the concept art is just slightly different enough for me to want it (just having arm and shin armour is enough for me to want the whole pack) but I see how it can be boring/repetitive.



I do like using the Frenzy (the AR), but mostly as an alternative to the NTEC since I've never been keen on the AK-47 as a weapon in games, while with the Steyr it has been love at first sight since CS 1.6. I am finding the Rabid (the LMG) to be the most fun, it's either a SHAW with less ammo so I can run, or a faster firing NSSW, unfortunately none of the Weapon databases I can find are updating so I can't compare their raw stats to make a decision.
