    It's a thing with vision, bud. It's how vision in this game works. A major issue I've had that I've seen only in TDM is the teleportation. The opponent is moving forward then all of a sudden, poof, they're back to where they were a few seconds ago. I've missed SO MANY shots to this.

    I don't think you can respawn in the same ship multiple times. In my understanding, if you bring one ship to the game, you can enjoy the REAL hardcore TDM :p :D
    1 v (n) where n is the number of ships your opponents brought to the battle.

    First,thanks for the patch notes @The Grim Repair :)

    I'm greatly looking forward towards this new update,especially the new Casual mode. We have been waiting for this mode for a very long time;).

    Standard Torpedo and Big Bandage looks super cool and I can't wait to try it in my Shooter and Speeder:cool:;).

    "BALANCING:
    ● Nerfed Firebomb Damage by 10%"
    This is the sad thing in this update for me,since I'm a Firebomb user:(:(

    Anyways,I have to find some better weapons other than FB or else I should finish my training on FB and upgrade it to the max to compensate the damage nerfed:oops:

    But,on the contrary,this nerf is great for enemy firebomb spammers;):D:rolleyes:

    I didn’t take the patch notes to mean that. It sounded to me like we are getting traditional TDM in ranked mode. If you bring just one boat, then you keep re-spawning with that boat. People that actually have enough high level gear to equip two boats, can do so at their discretion.

    Here is the quote from the patch notes:
    • Hardcore Team Deathmatch lets you play with your whole shipyard and bring more than one ship into battle. When your ship is destroyed during battle, you respawn in a different ship that you own.You only need one ship to be able to play this game mode.
    This is actually very confusing. It sounds like these patch notes were written and then edited and left with conflicting descriptions. Why would anyone only equip one ship if they can’t respawn?

    Great news that team elimination is still available.

    Also, is each number of ships brought into battle a different kind of game mode?
    If we want 1 ship then it's a 1 ship game mode, 2 ships=2 ship game mode ect ect.

    If this is true, then the queue for battle is going to be up to 5X longer, maybe 6 with casual.

    It's an obvious question, and the answer will be yes but I'm actually concerned for the wait time for battles.

    Think of ships as lives. The more ships you have, the more chances you can play. In team elimination, you only get 1 life. Having the choice to only bring 1 ship is exactly the same gamemode. :)

    It was a joke!
    What I meant was that with one (ship)life, HTDM will basically be Elimination for you.

    I agree the patch note as written is exactly that.
    Who is actually going to only bring one ship to battle? Anyone without extra gear will just put tier 1 uncommons or rares so they can get an extra life. I don’t want to be on a team that has two players with one ship, or players with uncommon shields on their speeder.

    I deleted that post, because the joke sounded funny in my head but didn't translate well :D

    You WILL be put in the HTDM queue even if you have one ship. However, you'll only have that one ship, and once you die, you won't have ANY more lives.

    It isnt so much latancy as it is difference of ping between different users.
    I for one play at a reliable ping of 56, when everyone else has a much higher ping they appear to me as lagging.
    From their perspective, all the ships with similar ping are normal and I appear to lag.

    What needs to happen to remedy this is to match players based on similar ping, or find a way to equalize ping among all battle participents.

    Isn't that exactly how team elimination works? I'm confused. o_O

    I think we're both telling each other what we already know.

    I hope you are joking, because that would be just another nail in the coffin for this game. If true why would any players with a single boat ever play hardcore? And if they do, the disadvantage to their team is HUGE. So many issues with this I can't even begin.

    Unfortunately, I'm not. That seems to me to be the most sensible interpretation of the announcement xD.

    So before people were complaining that they are forced to play sub par ship. Now they are complaining they don't get to play sub par ship. People here are really strange.
