I like it, the downside being, it makes trolling 200 more difficult.

I noticed they had moved back under their bridges.

Should be able to disable the single kills from other system messages.

Tank kills should state something besides " shot down" as that is not what happens.

Overall I find it another reason to mute.

A valid point, but from what I saw last night with 100 online, their name will be in lights for only about 22.5 milliseconds before it scrolls out of the message window.   :D

Has me working two text buffers and working harder than I want in or out of a fight. Just a lot of unnecessary additional clutter in the text buffer. Besides, I like it when it says I landed 12 kills in a Brewster. I don't like it telling the frek'n world I just had my arse handed to me 6 times.  :neener:

I turned kill messages on in the melee arena. They had been turned off do to buffer flooding when we had +400 people in an arena.

My suspension is it will have a significant game play impact.

HiTech

I think its great but I also feel you can streamline it a bit to be more effecient..
Currently if I make a kill or get killed I get 3 host messages instantly
1) host message OBX shot down saamiam
2) host message You were shot down by obx
3) host message you have been killed

I feel that the first message would be sufficient enough to inform me that I was killed.. as if blowing up and finding myself back inside the tower was not enough of an indicator.. lol
Just one host message seen by all is both informative and suffecient for me.
Just a thought

Can we just have the message settings that we had before as an option.

It has changed the game dynamic a lot.

Some seem to like it but I am thinking of leaving.
