Commanders, we’ve noticed certain players taking undue advantage of the ‘Change Mission’ option in the globe battles, as well as the use of scripting/botting to level up their Omega Units. We have taken the decisions to allow for a fixed number of free ‘change mission’ actions, and to limit the Omega XP gained. These actions are to strengthen fairer competition within the player community without impacting genuine players. Visit the E&A DevSpeak #11 to read more.

    I have an observation after falcon patch released the viper in sniper mode "execute" is gone or not working so where is 1 shot 1 kill now in viper in defensive total useless?

    I appreciate your feedback regarding the Barrage skill of Viper, and it looks like it was activated when one of the Attack Drone of your opponent reached the range of your Omega Unit, @jhonnyplumber. Also, every shot fired in Sniper Mode has a chance to instantly execute its target, @gla. Thanks for sharing these videos, and I'll forward it to the team.

    but even if 1 drone did go within range, its first shots fired should have been short range or sniper mode, untill the time elapsed for it to barrage. it appears to me that the viper (super ability) can be activated as soon as you make first contact with a base, as per if you disturb a defending colossus, or a defending falcon. in the past the viper was not like this. thats why i asked if changes have been made to the way the viper operates.
