    High pings aren't as bad of an issue as they were like a year or so ago. I've played in servers filled with 200 ping guys and it's not too bad.

    I agree we play with 160 - 240 ping on our server and its fine no problems.

    Wow, I wish that were true for me.
    If someone has 200+ ping, I can't do a thing. I start to bounce all over the place, and commands seem to lock up like crazy. It isn't even consistent, it is sporadic and that's the worse kind. I haven't really noticed a lot if someone has ping below 200, but over and it is a horrendous experience for me. If I have high ping, I don't play, because people complain and justly so. I know how frustrating it is trying to shoot people who move like The Flash.

    They could always retroactively implement a prestige system (see call of duty) if the game makes it long enough to have the majority be top level. Or they can just keep upping the levels available. Not too worried about this change, the current generation of gamers expect to see fast level progression.

    Did anybody read the note:
    We have noticed it is taking longer than we would like for people to rank up in the opt-in, so we are going to drop the requirements for each rank in half soon. After the XP required for each rank is lowered we will reset stats to see how quickly you move through the ranks!/

    Now this might angry some peoples. :D

    people complaining about their pings 5-10 points higher is ridiculous, to start off theres a difference between stable ping, spikes and missing packets (theres even a difference if you have XXms due to distance or its caused by high traffic) i've played FPS games for almost 13 years, and i can say i've played with all ranges of pings, i have experienced lag (and seen laggers) with 30 ms due to spikes from 30 to 60. i've had a stable 70 ping and been told that i was warping (packet loss) and seen players with 10 do the same.. FFS ive seen people with 210 ping die faster than some F***** with 60 (the whole damm match)

    Are you trying to disable global voip or text chat? bAllowGlobalChat is for text chat and seems to work. The other setting, bDefaultAlwaysAllowGlobalVoice, appears not to work as expected, which is a bug.

    We have a certain amount of time in mind which would be required of an "average" player to rank up to the max level. This number is pretty large, something like 5000 hours. After looking at the stats we found the average player was ranking up about half as quick as we would like.

    bDefaultAlwaysAllowGlobalVoice is working ok its bAllowGlobalChat I set it to true and no one can use the y to chat global.

    My thoughts on the HUD scaling:
    it's nice, but I think it would be nice to see the effect in real time instead of having to press esc to check if it's OK yet;
    it would also be nice to be able to have the ability to scale each individual part of the HUD (for example I'd like my radar to be smaller, but the chat is too small then and it's hard to read it, while the "enemy has the objective" and "defend objective" icons are still a bit too big imo)

    So doing some quick math. 5000 hours over the course of two years would be a little more than half of a year of continuous playing. At a rate of 2 hours per day, it would be 2500 days or almost 7 years. 3 hours per day would put you at about 4.5 years. 5 hours per day = 2.75 years. That's quite a lot of hours. Maybe knock that down to like 4000 hours.

    Also, how much of a curve is there for ranking up? I feel like I'm ranking up extremely slowly. 21 hours only got me to level 3.

    Level 1-100 was simple...new ranking system and hours to rank is less than attractive. If the system wasn't broke...why "fix" it?
    What was wrong with 1-100 ranking system????
