Picked clan wolf as it looked like I could get a match faster.

Wrong.

Passed over and over, groups get priority.(dropping solo obviously my fault for not being in a group, right?)

Half an hour or so later I get a match.

Wolf is protecting, Free R's gathering.

All I saw was a glimpse of 3 stealth somethings. Could've been a flea or locust, no matter, they smoke dived and the match was over.

A guy in my lance said they did the same thing last match.

Oh what fun PGI, look at what you've done.

You've made FW worse, congratulations I didn't think you could do it but I underestimated your intestinal fortitude.

PGI just really cares for their players. Its summer and they want people to spend more time outside

There are not many men created in the Florida state greater than you ...
i reckon that is why you have the b@lls to play scouting .

On scouting night , i rather quick play...and that is painful .

the best thing about this new system is... The collected Intel does absolutely nothing!!
It used to aid the 12man group fighting the "big game" during Invasion. Sattelite sweep, Combat ID and, Jammer justified the "Collect, Evade and Escape - Tactic" at times, trying to move the bar quicker... Now it's just a waste of time!

Scouting should be removed from the event system and restored back as a separate queue and then fixed to make it matter and smoke diving less viable.

I see you've picked Scouting. Are you sure you didn't mean to pick literally anything else?

can we have a separate scouting queue again?


the modes is not loved by many - but by some. with the current state of "my keyboard doesnt have a w-key" from many fw-players, I'd really like to see scouting back, where a single w-key WILL secure a victory many times.

I get that many don't like the brawly-fun that scouting is, and they shouldn't be forced to play it.
vice versa, a lot of people enjoy scouting, and admittedly you can't really stuff those into the rest of fw.


up the incentive (see intel/boni from intel - and payout), and scouting is great fun again.

Personally I wish they'd just retool it as a 4v4 fight.

The fact that either side can just do 4 lights and smoke dive at the end is BS. Make it 3 point conquest or something.

true, the mode could use some work; smoke-diving doesnt pay out really, but I can see why people do it.
-not that I agree with it, it ruins (see: no fun for the other side) games.

still: give us scouting back first, lets worry on the details-which-devs-will-ignore-anyway later ;)
