The update seems to have brought a lot of life into the game.  I started a game last night and within minutes had a full roster.  Everything seems to be really well balanced (though I have no experience of the previous builds).  I didn't notice anything too glaringly broken.  Then again, I am a noob...

The chat seems much better.  At least now one can use punctuation and the font is much bigger.

I haven't had a chance to try out SP since the update but I'm really looking forward to giving it a try. 

So far, all looks good and it really does seem like the devs are listening.  I really hope the momentum of last nights matches keeps up.  The game has so much potential. :)

Finally had a match tonight. I'm glad they fixed up a lot.

Firestorm Cannon always seemed weak when I used it, though not the same said when someone uses it against me... Plasma Rifle seems to fire a delayed shot like Charge Dart, now. Not sure if that's meant to happen? I still got some epic kills with it, it just took time to adjust and it is a pretty powerful weapon if you have a good aim.

I like that you can have auto weapon select off, but at the same time I'm missing it when I have to switch to the only weapon I picked up after spawn... xD I have my favourite weapons (Plasma & Shotgun) set to an ALT and SHIFT key for easy reach while using WASD keys, so it's good if I spawn near them. :P

I didn't even ping out, which was also good.

À la vie, à la mort.
