Huge changes to Firefall -No more levels-

That's right, Red 5 is getting rid of levels and we'll just let James and Scott explain it...



Personally I think it's a fan fucking tastic idea!

What say you SotW?

Interesting. Some of my fav older games (like the MechWarrior series) didn't use a classic character 'leveling' scheme. I like the comments about more customizations (build it suit your gameplay instead of the other way around) on the Frames - looking forward to seeing what this looks like in game.

I think this is great news. Leveling doesn't really fit all that well with what they wanted. I think this is a great way of using exp and making customization.
Can we get this guy a "thread necromancer" member status or something?

even in my limited playtime i agree with this...the new system sounds more "realistic" in a combat sense.

UPDATES!

You SOBs probably thought I was slacking, huh? Well, I kinda am/was a bit. All this buying a house and moving and dealing with shit takes up time and energy.

BUT ANYWAY...

Milestone update vids. Check 'em out! :)

Heh. Medic is the only frame I didn't take to higher levels. Just as well it would seem  ;D.

We have a valid build that we are now pushing to live servers. After that is done, we need to do a last minute check to make sure the deploy worked, and we need to get the patch uploaded to the delivery network. Those two things can take a few hours depending on upload speeds, but we are moving forward.

This was said about an hour ago so maybe in a few more hours we will be able to play. If not at the very least it will probably happen tomorrow.
Can we get this guy a "thread necromancer" member status or something?
