Looked at your stats, and that space is usually where your preferred class (based on your stats) goes, so I'm not sure what's happened there.Perhaps for some reason you haven't registered a fave class yet, maybe you have equal stats for more than one class or something? I'm just guessing here.

Weird, I'm wondering if it is something to do with PunkBuster? That said, after the official rounds were over we all seemed to be getting the same issue with locking up after a round and then banging out of the server. Twigs is going to look at it. Seems weird how it was stable enough until PB was re-enabled, so there might still be a connection there.

Well going from the response we've had, with one of you being okay with a match time change, and the rest of you having not responded so I'll assume you're all okay with it, from this weekend the Campaign matches will commence at 8pm BST (1 hour earlier).

So we'll see you there on Sunday.

You get points for multiplayer and co-op (so that includes combat against bots, but only on-line), but you don't log any points for single player.

Have mentioned it to the webmaster and he'll give the stats server a swift kick. Stats wise you can see the points you get at the end of a round. Basically you get two sets of points that are added together as in Battlefield, one set of points for teamwork (assists, revives, giving ammo, taking down key tactical targets etc) and one set for kills. No points are more important, though obviously the teamwork related ones help increase teamwork from players by rewarding their efforts.

Lok is part of the sector just captured by the Rebels. Tatooine: Bestine also has not been played, just the luck of the draw and the way the results have gone unfortunately. Might have to throw in an extra little bonus round where these maps get played for the points later in the campaign.

Well if the current time doesn't work for you just let us know, and if no one else has issues with a change we might be able to accommodate you.

Though I thought the last campaign ran at 9pm BST too?

There was no team jumping today, but because the Rebels had too few numbers tonight, Twigs as an admin is allowed to play for the team with too few players to balance things up. Was a shame there were so few Rebel players tonight, hopefully they'll be back in force next week.

To be fair tonight's maps are hard on the Imperial faction, especially Ryloth, and need greater numbers than we had tonight to allow them to be played to their full potential.

As the Hoth map will feature in our next major release, that will itself be First Strike 1.6 together with a few other tweaks to the mod in general, and perhaps a few other maps that we're currently working on. Though co-op Taloraan that was mentioned before maybe released earlier than that in a patch all things being well.

If we get enough signed up, or have at least 8 a side tonight we might be able to go with the 32 player version on Jundland which features more assets (Sentinel, y'know you want it baby! ;P ). Call everyone you know, put the shout out over X-Fire and get 'em signed up people!

Hi there SHOGUN096, have just been informed by our webmaster that the issues on the FS forums should be sorted now. Try registering again and see if the problems you were having have been resolved.

Thanks for your patience with this issue.

Yes, with only a limited number of space maps we'll have some repetition here due to some of the results. Depending on who wins the map determines what the next map to be played is. So for example, if the Imperial team wins Imperial Convoy Raid, Battle of Taloraan gets played next.

Yeah. If we had better numbers we'd do the larger version, but with these numbers we'll playing the16 player version.
Which means no Sentinel :-(

You could customize your version of the game to add the mini mod maps. Best bet is to ask FSDev Dnamro, he's most familiar with the co-op and single player mini mod.

Will see what we can do. In the meantime however, don't forget that you don't have to be registered to play in the Campaign (though obviously it's preferable). So don't let that stop you.
