I want others to sound off on what they think of the new patch? To me it seems the game is ruined. Take the Twin Islands map. With no helicopters people just sit around doing nothing. If you do go out, it takes forever. Worse if you get killed you need to start all over again finding a ride just to travel for a long time to find you are the only one on offense. Personally for me, I will not be buying the expansion coming in about a week as a result unless this is changed. The point to this game was the vehicles. Maps are too big too just be running around, and there are already a lot of games where you can do that.
I think its better. I like the new layouts of it and the apcs. Turning the scope zoom off the sniper as well was just funny to hear all the reactions :D
It's the worse patch ever devised. Everything about the game now is wrong. And what's with the jumping, you float down now!
And the sniper scopes are all wrong! An SVD with a x12 fixed...ha!
I've lost interest in JO now, finishing off the realism mod then moving onto Half Life2

I like the new patch. No more rocket chopper spawn rapers.
I forgot which map it was, but earlier today I was online in what was probaly the worst game. Since the new patch they do not have choppers re-spawn continuously like before. So after a while there was no more choppers. The map was too big for running/swimming. Bases were seperated by water. So, what did everyone do? Absolutely nothing. Now, one of the selling points of this game is it can hold a lot of people. Ever see 145 people do absolutely nothing? So I left the East coast server and looked on West coast. Same damn thing.
I guess for me, this game is somewhat over unless they fix the patch,
the patch has improved my grahpics and has some good points seats to fire from in the apc s, it has helped small maps ,but the large water based with boats and choppers it has destroyed the game play .these maps run 100 to 150 people for a huge battle (one of the selling points on advertisment on box)It has destroyed the air and water mobilty needed for attacks. people playing on these maps find themselves running around the shoreline killing enemys in the water who bail out of helos or zodiacs and swim for it ,like shooting fish in a bucket ,some game?.now the skies are near silent when they used to be full of attack helos and troop carriers loaded with newly respawned victims .I can only hope the patch makers read this and do something about it . this is just another case of just can t leave well enough alone.i don t see how they expect to rent large player servers when they destroy the maps they use. (who would want to rent them). all in all yea this patch has ruined the game for large campains and i for one will not be wasting more money on a expansion unless i m sure it will restore game play and have some kind of info pledging that they will not screw it up too. signed one dissatisfied customer.
All the selling points that made me buy the game in the first place have now been taken away. The game is suffering from a huge lag, the graphics are hurting the eyes, and the fun is taken out of the game for the sake of those whiners that couldn't hack the adjustment from CS, HL, and all the other hopping games to this one.
Our clan has cancelled the orders for the Addon JO:E and we terminated our contract to rent a server at Nova after their statement that there was nothing wrong with the game as it is and all the changes were necessary to balance out the game.
My opinion - if you want to play a balanced game, play Ludo - any soldier will tell you that war isn't fair, and especially not balanced. Heck, the only reason that we have war is because the scale of balance has tipped to one side and those that have the advantage make use of it. I ain't going back again, especially after the servers I used to play in have lost 60% and more of their core players and being replaced by bunny rabbits.
Ive never seen this "shortage of helicopters" you people are whining about.

Well it depends on first, have you installed the patch? Second, which servers are you connecting to? If you connect to some of the big ones 100-150 players and the map has been going for a while you will see what we are talking about. Twin Islands is a good example. After the map has been loaded for long time, if you connect you will see no choppers. Instead people are just running around doing nothing. Lets face it, part of the selling point to this game was the use of helicopters. And because of the size of the maps they are very much needed to win the map.
The new patch is crap i used to play as a rifleman but it is just boring i spend almost the entire match looking for a helicopter to get me accros maps and whats with no zoom on scopes i mean wtf what use is a sniper rifle if u can zoom in or out sometimes a enemy gets so close u cant use a sniper but to far to use a pistol. I think nova should put it back the way it was before they released the patch
