I discovered _ensnare_ thanks to your stream.  I always like to say thanks when I discover something new that I enjoy, so... thanks!  See you in the skies.

Greetings all, and welcome to my second forum posting. 

I am Meriwether (Merry for short), an English gentleman in my mid 30's.  I have a lengthy gaming pedigree, from my first days tapping away at the family zx81 to today's Planetside 2.  I have a history of becoming entwined in competitive gaming, particularly in the Tribes series of jetpacking madness.

I would like to say that I am enjoying this game and it's community very much.  Communities can make or break games, and I'm thrilled to be a part of what has so far been an overwhelmingly positive experience.

I would like to give a shout out to the following people, with whom I've had the tremendous pleasure of flying with, in no particular order (and with advance apologies for mis-spelled names):

Captain Smollett (quack-quack)
Metal Man

There are more I am certain, so thanks to you too if you've flown with me - I have yet to encounter a single member of crew that put me off this game in any way.  I only recently discovered the "add friend" feature, I look forward to expanding my list of friends and hope you'll return the compliment.

See you out there in the skies!

Feedback and Suggestions / Gun stat line - adding traverse in Degrees
« on: March 13, 2013, 01:45:34 am »
Hello all, and welcome to my first GoIO forum posting.

Experienced players will know that various guns have different traverse characteristics - that is, lateral movement on a pivot, or simply swivel.
I believe newer players would benefit from showing the weapon's traverse to better allow them to make informed decisions on gun location selection.
I propose adding the gun's traverse in degrees (such as 45° or 15°) beneath the weapon's ammunition count, within the blueprint weapon stats.

I have a fondness for Junkers.  One strength of my Junker is that with a Banshee on the front, a Whirlwind on the lower side-deck and an Echidna on the upper side-deck, all three share a firing arc - the Banshee has a splendidly wide traverse, allowing for a so-called "trifecta" in optimal attacking situations.  If I was to mount a Mercury on the front, it would not be possible.
All of this is common sense, but newer players such as myself could likely use the hard information, rather than having to learn by various Practice matches, or on the battlefield.

Thank you for your time.
