Nexolate:Or possibly it was already confirmed as a typo on the day it was announced.
As far as I can see typo is still there for some reason... not sure why it is not corrected yet, as ever single person will spot that when reading, and likely will NOT check russian forum side.

Nexolate gave me a link to one of the patch notes from some time back and they apparently had a typo of the PPSH in there. It appears it was never changed.

I'm curious on the combining of the levels from 15 to 10. Will we lose levels if we're not topped out to level 15.

Can they detail more on the gaining rank since missions are going to change or it's different system or something?

I figure the lower tier will work the same as it did before, when the highest tier was eqlevel 8 or so.

According to others on RU side, rank is being reworked/wiped in the future. Unless you mean faction experience stuff?

Yea. The faction rank and names. I think it's always only been 10 for the RA and FS. Less for the Scavs and BM.

They said something about though that they were going to keep the same time limit to reach the top ranks as if it was still 15 levels but use level 10 the highest by making each rank have more points to gain in between.

So if we have a rank but they change the experience points needed to reach that in the new system, will we lose the name level? Does that make any sense?

And they said something about it beginning at level 5 or 6 I think. The new lengthened experience to reach each new name level.
-----
"Instead of the 15 item levels, we will have 10. Current level 5 items will join the 3rd item level after the update. We will also increase the amount of reputation needed to obtain each level. Thus, new players (wishing to advance to level 10 equipment) will need to spend as much time as the older players took to advance up to level 15."

Ah, I think the 15->10 is not related to faction. It's about eqlevels, is my understanding. The two will probably remain exclusive of one another, apart from maybe some item unlocks via factions getting adjusted. They may have meant that the amount of faction exp required for some ranks may be adjusted, but not necessarily that the faction rank levels themselves will change.

But the English is not so clear at times, making it hard to get any clear answer until it ends up in the game.

Cool, thanks for the reply and your understanding. :) It helps make it clearer.

Also I thought of another question:

Since the Devs are raising the Scavs and BM to equal FS and RA, does that mean the other unnamed playable faction that was mentioned will be cancelled or forgotten now, not used?
-----
"It is only after the player achieves maximum reputation with Scavengers or the Black Market that the stronger factions agree to start dealing with you. Among those are the Renaissance Army and two other factions yet unannounced (1 of the unnamed factions at this time was the FS). This said, not all of them will be happy to establish contact with you. Thus, the Renaissance Army will accept to its ranks both Scavengers and the Black Market combatants, while one of the unannounced factions will be enrolling Scavengers only."

I was meaning this. Do you think the Devs have now scrapped this and are gonna go in a different direction?

FN FNC looks quite nice, I like to choose weapons depending on how they "look", at least if I have the opportunity, meaning being in any way competitive when using those I like most because they look nice :D - I guess I am the only single person in this board who has this attitude :D.
