NEW TO SSNC?

First of all, I would like to say Welcome! SSNC is a pretty old clan, and originated from a browser game called, BeGone, over a couple years ago. I was not part of the clan at that time, however, I was acquainted with SSNC for a good amount of time. A lot of people ask what SSNC stands for, but they will never know cause SSNC keeps the meaning unrevealed except to those that are part of the SSNC Core.

If you would like to know more about SSNC, click on the spoiler below that was pulled from a BeGone Forum:
Clan Ad from BeGone:
 

I would like to thank you for taking your time and checking out our Clan's Forum and Introducing yourself.

VOICE CHAT WITH SSNC MEMBERS

SSNC uses Dolby Axon for Voice Chat. We are very active there, and you will find it fun to hang out with some of us there.
Download it Here:

Once you do that, You need to add anyone from the SSNC clan such as Gunr22, Recoil315, Myself, and so on... So that we can invite you to the SSNC Voice Channel.

NEED HELP?

You can PM me, or send a post on this topic if you have any questions about BLR.

Thanks,
-IH3D

No one can.

They have taken to the philosophy of most devs and we will "get it when it's ready".

It's not even like they're starting from scratch, we're getting all the same stuff as the PS4 version, just tweaked for PC. It's not going cross-platform, just copy and paste.

As for dates, I've heard the 29th of last month, from another source I heard that was delayed, and it's early THIS month... but since the game has been in "maintenance" mode since early yesterday, it's possible that they're trying to implement it already.

The parity patch update was supposed to be launched 13th July..then due found bugs they moved it to 22th July. Now gues what? They now say it will be ready in 29th July.
Am i the only one who thinks it will be around the end of august when it finnally becomes ready?
This patch release date has been moved 4 times..I for some awfully good reason start to think that this patch will be buggy as hell and will take exactly 99999999 years to fix all the glitches.

If they ever get fixed.

The original BLR was full of utterly retarded "coding 101" error glitches that were never addressed.

Becomes a whole different kind of shooter when a target can hide inside of a nearby wall, and slip out to kill you when you least expect it.

The reason they pushed back the date from the 22 to the 29th, is because of Arc (originally called PWE) side of the problems. They were going through API issues that was blocking the migration process.
ARC is totally ignoring maintenance for the old Blacklight: Retribution, cause they are focusing on making sure that the new update will come out asap.

So, I hope, and i'm sure they will make the 29th the date this time.

Well, Parity patch is here... but you all can't play it XD

Not for a few DAYS anyway... they decided that they haven't dragged their feet long enough about this, so the servers are down for several more days. You can download the patch/update now, but you have to uninstall the current installation of BLR, redownload the game, and THEN patch... only to not be able to connect to the down servers. Oh well. The diehard fans will overlook this, I'm sure.

I've been reading about the Toxic Ammo as it currently stands on the PS4.

http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/Blacklight-Retribution-General/Toxic-ammo-quite-over-powered/td-p/44989554/page/4

They are "updating elemental ammo to match the PS4 version" with the new patch. Apparently Toxic Ammo is OP.

Unspoken mentioned something about it "poisoning you until you die"... apparently this is true to an extent. I assumed this meant that you slowly lost hp until you died (which would be annoying as hell and gamebreaking, some pissant twerp child would tag you with a toxic light pistol, then run off laughing at you over voice chat...), in actuality, it works similar to how it did before, but with more damage up front, a small DoT, but the damning thing about toxic ammo that has everyone's ass so chafed is the fact that it adds something they're calling a "Death Mark". This mark lowers your maximum HP until you die. It's a permanent loss of maximum hp in a game where 200 hp = "an eyeblink from death". People are upset because you don't even really have to aim, you just spray at someone and if a bullet hits, they lose a massive chunk of life.

For those who are familiar with Warframe, this is also how why I play Saryn... one of her abilities removes a massive chunk of life from targets, making everything in the game vastly softer. The Viral (IIRC...) add-on for weapons works similarly. Removing chunks of life is a huge game changer.

HSL has stated that they are waiting to see how this ammo "settles into the meta". They want to see player response to it. However, this is nothing new! It was like this on PS4, and people seem to hate it!

Toxic protection on that PS4 forum seems to vary widely. Some folks say "it is a waste of a slot, and does nothing", while others say it blocks the health-loss, which makes it sound almost like a slot-tax. I'm not sure where it lands.

HSL have stated that they have several possible fixes loaded up in their back pocket that they can implement if Toxic ammo is truly OP, but c'mon... if you know it's hated on one community, go ahead and change it on another! Don't subject us to folks who spray and pray with a TSMG at far ranges and drop our life to 100 with lucky hits! Don't force us to devote a gear slot to Tox Protection JUST to avoid said children!

*smh*
