    Client - Improved Play Now functionality
    Client - Removed K/D ratio and Skill Level filters in the leaderboards
    Client - Any points you get while being dead will be added to your score
    Client - Reduced negative mouse acceleration
    Client - Increased health on the Cobra to match other vehicles
    Client - More informative disconnection/kick reasons

    The Balance tweaks are as followed:
    Slightly increased the damage of the UZI at long range.
    The AKs74u now has more felt recoil when aiming.
    The G3, VSS, and all SemiAutomatic rifles now settle slightly faster between shots when aiming.
    The PKM, Type 88LMG, G3, An94, and 40mm shotgun have returned to their former glory.
    Increased the damage of the MG3 to bring it in line with the rest of the LMGs.
    Fixed a bug where the Saiga12 with slugs would do too much damage at long range.
    Fixed a bug where the SVU would do too little damage at long range.
    Fixed a bug where M95 rounds would not kill armored targets with headshots.

    I wouldn't see anything about new maps in this fix. though they have fixed a lot of things. Are the changes noticeable?

    I haven't learned enough yet from the Forums to be able to determine if there are additional maps being unlocked. I had heard that they would be, it was just a question of how many. I'll look more into it. If they unlock more maps and more than one, maybe this game might be a little interesting for a bit longer. We'll see.

    If we don't play this game, then I think that most of us don't have any other games to play that we're overly excited about. If you noticed yesterday and all of last night, the server somehow filled up and ran for hours. Maybe more people will give it a chance now that they've fixed so many issues. Unfortunately the damn crosshairs were on so I hope people don't shy away from the server because of that. I've since fixed the crosshairs. If you reboot the server, you will have to restart the map to turn them off.

    I've set it to where you can now camp the server and not get kicked. Very soon they will put out another patch that will allow us to turn off the tanks and keep the server ranked. Right now you can only run no tanks in unranked mode. I hear this fix will come very soon.

    Also once they're convinced that the latest patch is stable, they're supposed to unlock some more maps. These are the next two maps planned for SQ DM. I hear Nelson Bay isn't that great. However it will be nice to see Panama Canal in SQ DM. I think that is one of the better overall maps. Nelson Bay - mp_008sdm, Panama Canal - mp_001sdm Ideally we could see more maps unlocked in the coming weeks.

    Added minor things Razz







    And the greatest news anyone will probably ever hear.....I'm looking into parts for building a rig :O.

    I never played four of the maps for Rush and didn't play the Conquest maps that aren't part of SQDM very much. So for me, there are 6 maps that could be unlocked that I would be interested in playing for awhile. I've only worn out four maps so far.

    After Dice decided to release only ONE map for each mode in this latest patch, I said FUCK YOU and shove that pile of fucking shit game up your greedy ass. The server is no more boys.

    They'll probably manage to fuck up MOH as well. We'll need to talk about if we want to put up a server on the first day, or check things out first to see if there are going to be major issues like in BC2. Afterall it is basically the same game with different skins.
