Sprint has been nerfed slightly, nothing extreme, but I think it's one or two seconds shorter. It will help stop blindfire from ruling the game, but other than that it probably won't effect anything. Objectives and Plunder might be a little harder though.

First game on Dry Docks in TTDM, hosting team rage quit while I was using spiders so I was unable to respawn, team mate rage quit while he was winning, then the other team quit when there was no one to kill. Ah well, at least I won.

So far I've been having a blast, I can notice the blindfire nerf, a few people have tried it on me and failed. The Tau buff is good and bad for me, it works well at close range but I find it harder to hit a running target at long range, the decreased recoil is good in the long run but it will take me a while to get used to it, not having to switch guns to shoulder swap is very useful though. Raffica looks amazing from what I saw in a custom, might actully be worth using now. FAL-SS feels slightly nerfed in a way, not getting as many headshots, but it's still good, but decreased jamming would make it perfect. The new Plunder chest and idol spawns are very well thought out, far better than the old layouts, can't wait to try them out in a public match. Dry Docks looks like an amazing Objective/Plunder map, chests and some of the hills are near the water, setting up for some fun flanking.

But, the two down sides are the booster changes and Mega Bomb becoming the new Quick Boom. I've been seeing people spam Megas left and right since they can't be thrown back (or escaped). Also, Fleet Foot with Regen is insanely over powered, I used it myself and was dodging bullets while I healed, I smell the new super tryhard loadout.

I'm also iching to played Dry Docks in a public match, but haven't found it yet. Smiley Sad

Agreed played a few games earlier & for once I was hoping to run into a Kal 7 User & I got lucky, it seems he wasn't aware of the blindfire nerf lol. I noticed how much weaker the Kal was instantly as I managed to kill him every time he tried to rush me zig zagging. I didn't really notice much difference with sprint though.

 

I also managed to get Dry Docks twice in between 4 games, It's a decent map can't way to play TO on it tomorrow.

Also it seems the Ping adjustment to matchmaking actually works.

Keeping EE, ESE and Bargain in seperate slots is a big mistake. Should've been Regen staying in Slot 1 with Revenge joining it.

@sjshane.
I was your partner in the TTDM. I didn't rage quit, the game kicked me out of the match. The entire match was glitchy as hell, especially with you not being able to respawn.

I'm liking what I see with the Tau... This entire update is amazing. I'm glad I got back into the community this past month.

Been a while since I got excited for an update. 2 years late but better than never which was what we were expecting.

 

Thanks Naughty Dog! Can't wait to play it!
