In the latest edition of Wingman's Hangar, CIG presented us with some juice details about the upcoming Dogfighting Module (DFM). During this episode, Eric and Rob discuss a question regarding the map variety in the upcoming DFM.
"How many maps can we expect in the DFM?"
"Right now there are 2 maps, one is called "Broken Moon" the other one is unkown",
They have also mentioned that more maps will be released as the game continues to develop.
Gamemodes were discussed as well and this is probably the more interesting bit, since it gives us a better view on what the gameplay will be like.
- Horde AI
- Team Deathmatch
- Last Man Standing
- Possibly: Capture the Flag
I can't wait for the DFM to be released (more info below), my Freelancer has been sitting in the Hangar for far too long and its getting a bit rusty. Hopefully the extra 5 months of developement for the DFM has paid off (It was intially planned to release in december 2013). Betacake.net will be reporting on all things Star Citizen in the future, so hang in there and "I'll see you in the verse!"
In one of the previous episode they mentioned that the DFM is going to be presented to the public @ PAX East this year, PAX East is hosted in Boston, USA and will run from April 11th to April 13th 2014.
Shortly after PAX East, the DFM will come available for everyone who has pledged a game package on the Star Citizen Website. If you haven't yet, now is the time to do so, since there are only 4.500 alpha slots left!

If you haven't logged in to Diablo 3 in a while and you have been living under a rock for the past year, logging back in to Diablo 3 might be a bit of a shock for you.
Blizzard finally removed the AH from the game, not only that, they have completely revamped the loot system to compliment all the changes that have been made.
Most players agree on how the AH ruined the much loved core gameplay from the previous versions of the game. Even I could see it, even though I never played D1 or D2. A game that evolves around loot and farming gear, should not have an AH were you can just "ebay" your way to a better character. It destroys the core of the game, not just for the players that "ebay", but also for the players that don't. The players that don't "ebay" are affected due the fact that Blizzard now has to alter (read lower) the drop rate of items, since they are publicly available.
But like I said, removing the AH was one step, the second stop with revamping the entire loot system. Which meant both increasing drop rates again to a level where a single player can actually farm a decent set of gear. And they have introduced the smart drop/roll system, this means items that drop have a much bigger chance of rolling stats that you need on the character that you are playing.
|No more Auction House, will make you rely on your own farming skills.|
Blizzard has done an outstanding job of renewing their game, arguably it might be a bit late or just in time.
So if you have not played the game in a while, you should definitely give it another go, its worth it, even if you don't plan on buying the expansion that is coming out next week.
