UPDATE: Two of the three blockers for MMO play discussed near the end of this clip have been addressed and released into Star Citizen, namely Object Container Streaming and Persistence. The persistence is still WIP but takes it’s second step in the upcoming 3.17 patch. Server meshing is still classified as soon(tm).
Much of the year has been a huge disappointment for Glaive owners as the ship, in general, has failed to live up to expectations of being a kick ass medium fighter. The ship leaked boost fuel excessively and it’s cannons were nerfed.
So it was when I called up the Glaive over at Levski (Delamar) to run some 8k bounty missions. Much to my surprise, even with the default loadout, the Glaive lived up to the high expectations I have always had for this alien based fighter.
The handling was smooth, shields adequate, and the fire power of those two size 5 WRATH Plasma cannons is back!
