I believe it would be nice if you could make custom load outs by picking only so many build and battle parts. It would make new strategies appear with the new custom load outs and add a challenge. Outposts should only be allowed to be built anywhere other than inside an enemies rift collection/spawn area. It would still allow people to spawn in the base but not as far in making it a little harder to "base rape". Side Winders should be a little more stable because sometimes even on a slightly sloped surface you can be knocked off or flip over. If possible if the server host wants to change the servers maps or other things he can do the create server in the menu and instead of making a whole new server it'll change to the new server layout after the current match and will notify players before so and will just go to a loading screen when it changes. I shall post more suggestions as I think of them and anyone else is welcome to post other suggestions or feedback on this topic.
Many of us want the custom loadouts. CHeck this out! http://www.community.us.playstation.com/t5/forums/
We hear ya! I wish LBI was still around to do stuff like that.
As far as sidewinders...they are good with their balance in my opinion, it adds a layer of skill.
