The patch goes live for download at 3am Dec 5 ET.

Thought I'd list a few updates I've heard requested and discussed on TS.

Just FYI.

  • Players no longer get into a soft hang when viewing assignments in-game.
  • Made tweaks to the Conquest Soft Catch-up mechanics. The catch-up will now only be activated when the losing team is very far behind instead of rounds that are fairly close. We think that this will make matches more fair in general, while at the same time making the matches a bit more exciting if the skill gap between the teams is too big.
  • Players occupying top gunner positions in land vehicles are now able to duck down and become somewhat protected from incoming shots. While ducking, top gunners are still able ?blind-fire? the machine gun.
  • The automatic spawn when round starts will be disabled in all game modes (except Final Stand). This change has been made to not force spawn players that temporary went "afk" during round transition and are not back in their seats at start.
  • Fixed an issue where the soldiers would be getting an input delay (stuck in place) after the revive was completed. This change should improve the responsiveness of revives for both the reviver and the revivee.
  • Added a confirmation sound when successfully spotting with the Binoculars.
  • Smoke Grenade Launcher now properly blocks spotting (including from suppression).
