[Content Update] 6/25 Content Update Notes - Specialists, Power Surge Map, and more!

New big update, check it.
For 6/25, another dangerous mission has been added to the roster... Operation: Power Surge is going to take you soldiers into an industrial pumping station, where only with the help of valued teammates will you have a hope of completing your mission alive. Don't worry, Central Command is providing a whole new set of mercenaries, weapons, items, and supplies to ensure your survival. Good luck, brave men and women of CA...you’ll need it.

Operation: Power Surge

SITREP: After the successful retrieval of the EMP bomb in Operation Gray Hammer, UAF's Special Forces launched a secret mission to move the EMP to a more secure location. Unfortunately, the mission plans were compromised and a Warcorp squad recaptured the EMP. In hot pursuit, the Special Forces have tracked the enemy squad to an industrial pump station on the city outskirts. After a quick resupply, the Special Forces launch a counter-attack on the enemy squad in an attempt to retrieve the EMP.

New Map: Power Surge

The enemy squad has been tracked to this industrial pumping station. Eliminate all hostiles and retrieve the EMP bomb.

Available game modes: Elimination, One Man Army, Capture the Flag, Spy Hunt

Minor Functionality Issues:

Balancing:

Under Investigation:
--In the Server Lobby, the Player Information window will update to reflect recent Kills and Deaths that occurred in Fireteam mode, making it appear inconsistent with the player's actual Default Info.
This is temporary - it's only visible when remaining logged in to your account, then going back to the Server Lobby after playing Fireteam mode - it will reset to the actual Default Info Kills/Death statistics after logging out and logging back in to the account.
--Fireteam Information statistics are displaying long, incorrect numeric values on some accounts. This is not the result of hacking and is being investigated.

Looks like Nexon has given in the temptation and are using a maplestory-like business model. They used to say that NX items wouldn't give much of a tactical advantage, but that has changed :(. Grenade launchers, satellite scanners, and dear god, MEDKITS. The medkit alone has the potential to DOUBLE your KDR...

And another thing: haven't shotguns been rebalanced enough?

Looks like this is the update/change for only the NX players. Except the new map and other not so important stuff. We need some new guns!! and better hack preventing software/method.

Well said jesse, but few will be high enough rank to get the specialist, let alone the weps.

Well it's been over a year now since this patch. It's almost March 2010, and Med-Kit and claymores, etc, are still NX available. so...... CA is very NX oriented now.

I meant NX available ONLY*, they're still not GP buyable yet, that is those items mentioned above^^
