The biggest use for them was simply shooting the Powerplant, but when that isnt possible anymore, we would need to destroy the whole hull...and that might take a while, with limited ammo and bad projectile speed...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Projectile weapons (especially rail guns) are better at penetration so targeting the powerplant is still a valid target (especially against larger opponets), but is no longer the easy instakill it is at the moment. There's also a planned major upgrade for weapons and modules when we look at the loot and crafting system.

Yes - all of the ones that have been completed so far.

CQC rank is different to Combat rank.

Either way - I am super excited about the Federal Dropship MkII - loved the old one. Can't wait.

There's no bots - it's PvP only.

Will people on your friends list be prioritised for matchmaking. I have see the matchmaking improvements on the main game, I just hope it translates. I don't want to spend hours fighting 'the great unwashed masses' and potentially having to forfeit matches because once again my friend is not in the same instance.

You can invite friends and they would then be tried to match with you in your session.

Invites will try and favour your team providing there's space for them.

Can you clarify - are the fixes in the release notes from the beta that are marked "Xbox One" part of the Xbox GPP3 release that you mention, or are these fixes that have been transferred back from Xbox to PC?

Secondly, can you clarify will there be a period of Xbox and PC users operating in the same background galaxy as part of beta once the GPP3 is out?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

GPP3 is the same build as Beta 2 that was released yesterday. When both 1.4 and Xbox are released to retail they will be the same galaxy.
