Faction Friday!

I am a teensy bit late, but it is still Friday so here we go!

This time around we are showcasing the overpowered underdogs of the SupCom universe, the Cybrans!

Thanks again to Blackster/Ninrai for these awesome faction logo pics! Today we feature the Brick. FAFer Entau sent in his desktop background, and claims that bricks are king!

Sick profile etch!

The Brick may well lay claim to the title of King, as it is definitely one of the most well rounded units in the game. With a blistering 375 dps and the health to rival even the mighty Percival, this super-tanky unit can take on all comers! This is one of only two non-t4 units that can survive an Overcharge blast (at 4 vet), and it also has torps and torp defense to save itself from minor naval ambushes while traversing the sea floor. While it does lose to the percy one on one, the Brick is much more able to protect itself from lower tier units with its extremely high rate of fire. Hello walking point defense!

Remember to submit any cool screenshots or pictures to me at brnkoinsanity@gmail.com if you want them included in the Faction Friday features!

Time for a Feud!

There is another King and Prince of map tourney this weekend! This time around it is on the Crimson Feud, a brilliant little map with many different methods to conquer the land! Make sure to brush up on your play before Saturday so that you are ready to take on everyone for the title of mastery.

Details on the tourney can be found here -

King and Prince of Maps!

Server restart

The server has been restarted today, with no significant changes to code.

We have to do this occasionally, because the servercode contains a memory leak that eventually causes severe slowdowns, if left unmanaged.

We did bump the timeout before the server tells players to connect by proxy, which should slightly mitigate the problem described in the previous development update, but it should not be considered a solved with this server restart.

If you’d like to help us test the network update, please get in touch with Sheeo by PM

 

Kind Regards,

Sheeo

Check out the Wiki!

Hey guys, and a happy Monday to you! (or bastard child of the week to you, depending on your feelings about the day)

We all know that there is a wiki for everything, but perhaps you have not visited the FAF wiki. Up till recently, the wiki was TERRIBLY out of date, but thanks to a dedicated group of individuals this is no longer the case! There is a ton of useful information over there that you are welcome to read through, as well as some background, lore, and behind the scenes info on the story of the game. Check out the link below to see what is new!

http://wiki.faforever.com/

While many things have been added, fixed, and updated, there is still work to do. Should you choose to do some editing on the wiki, there is an avatar up for grabs for anyone who makes a significant contribution to the project! Help us make this tool as useful as we can, and forward the link to people who are curious to know more about this amazing RTS!
