    Happy New Year Soldiers!Welcome to 2012's 1st Patch.

    2012's 1st update will send you into battle against our most dangerous enemy, the NEMEXIS Corporation. Check out the story behind it and eradicate NEMEXIS once and for all with the specialist's minigun!

    Annoyed by the boot lag when switching between different servers, channels, and rooms?
    Now introducing the Quick Start feature where you'll be able to warp to your favorite channel with just the click of a button!
    Additional, powerful abilities have been designed to take you the extra mile.Complete Daily Jobs and become one step closer in becoming a super soldier!

    Naturally we wouldn’t send you into battle without the best firepower we could find.
    That’s why we’ve approved a new NX weapon, a new GP weapon and a number of deadly little goodies available in Bubba Ares’ Gun Emporium!
    There’s all kinds of awesome things to shoot and shoot at Soldiers in the 1st update of 2012!


    - Combat Arms Europe Command -

    Patch Notes for the 26.01.2012 update follows below:

    New Map* NEMEXIS HQ (Fireteam Exclusive) [​IMG]
    - The battle for victory sends you into battle against many foes, but no one has dogged our
    footsteps more than the vicious Nemexis Corporation. Nemexis has committed atrocities
    beyond your worst nightmares, and their reign of terror must end. Enter Nemexis HQ and
    try to eradicate Nemexis once and for all!

    New Feature* Quick Start - Create your own personal battle route! Are you a Fireteam junkie? Can’t get enough of
    Quarantine? Love Junk Flea? You’re going to love the new Combat Arms Quick Start feature.
    Quick Start lets you quickly find matches with just the click of a button.

    - By selecting High, Low or None for Rank, KDR, EXP or GP rate, your search will give a priority
    for those servers. Want to avoid playing with the best? Select “Low” for Rank and your
    search will avoid Victor! Want to max out your EXP? Select “High” for EXP Rate, and your
    search will go through Platinum, Delta, and Victor before even looking at Alpha!

    - Additionally, you can search for any map and game mode available in Combat Arms. Have a
    hankering for some Dark Forest Seize and Secure action? Your ideal match is just one click

    - Give it a whirl and let us know what you think. Quick Start will be improved over the coming
    months, so we want to know how to make it even more useful to you!

    New Abilities - Taking on Nemexis is no easy feat. You’re going to need that extra edge, and R&D has come
    through with some powerful abilities to aid you in the fight! Only catch is, these abilities are
    too powerful to be stored in one Ability Slot, and you’re not getting these for free, either.
    These Abilities can only be received by completing Daily Jobs, so get a move on!

    * Parting Gift:
    - With this ability equipped, you will drop a small grenade at your feet when you’re taken down.
    It’s not as powerful as the M67 Frag Grenade, but it’ll finish your foe off easily enough!
    - Note: Requires two open ability slots to equip. Does not function in Quarantine Regen or any
    match where explosives are restricted.

    * Spoils of War:
    - Nothing wrong with a little plunder! Take any weapon that some foolhardy soldier has dropped
    and turn it into some quick GP. Be careful, though, you’re going to be a sitting duck when this is
    going on.

    - Note: 10 GP per weapon, can only be used 10 times per match. Requires two open ability slots
    to equip.

    * Opportunist:
    - Don’t like the gun your foe dropped, but you know he’s got something better stashed away?
    This Ability will open up a dead player’s backpack and drop one of the weapons stored there!
    You have 10 seconds to pick it up before it becomes fair game, so no time to dally!

    - Note: Requires two open ability slots to equip.

    * Relentless:
    - Death just got a lot cheaper. Having this ability equipped will decrease your respawn time,
    getting you back in the fight even faster!

    - Note: Does not function in Elim Pro, Search and Destroy, Fireteam, Quarantine Regen or
    Last Man Standing. Requires three open ability slots to equip.

    New Weapons* Rare & Epic - Deckland's F2000 Tactical
    -- While the F2000 Tactical is no slouch on the battlefield, Deckland has spent considerable time
    and funds getting this firearm to a new standard of performance.

    * NX - FR F2
    -- Hailing from France, this weapon brings with it a long and storied history. Evolved from the
    French MAS-36 sniper rifle, it has a wealth of modern attachments available for it but uses
    a tried-and-true bolt-action loading system.

    - MK14 MOD 0
    -- The MK14 Mod 0 is an assault rifle based on the venerable M14. When the US Navy Seals
    needed a lighter and more compact version of the classic assault rifle, the result was this
    deadly beauty. The MK14 Mod 0 is made of lightweight aircraft alloy and is perfect for
    special operations and quick assault missions, but can operate in any combat scenario.
    Permanent only available for a limited time!

    - Brass Knuckles
    -- A low-tech option for dealing damage in close quarters. Light, fast and easy to conceal.

    * GP
    - Tango 51
    -- The Tango 51 is a new tactical firing rifle designed from the ground up to emphasize bullet
    alignment and precision engineering. That means that it’s an incredibly accurate firearm
    suitable for any sniper’s needs.

    Bubba Ares’ Gun Emporium Updates- Bubba Ares obviously never sleeps because there are all sorts of deadly goodies coming out of the
    Gun Emporium this month.

    * New Forgeable Weapons
    - STG-44
    -- The STG-44 is considered the first modern assault rifle and was first deployed in Germany
    in 1944. It filled in a defensive hole between the smaller submachine guns that didn’t
    have effective range and the larger machine guns that were too heavy to be effectively
    carried by more than one man in a squad.

    - MG34
    -- A German air-cooled machine gun first deployed in 1935 and widely considered one of the
    best of the early machine guns. It was one of the first dual-purpose guns that could be
    fed from a drum for single-person use or via a belt as an infantry support weapon.

    Bug Fixes and Other Changes - Equipped Abilities are now visible while dead.
    - Fixed a clipping issue with the FAMAE S.A.F.
    - 4 Additional servers have been added into Foxtrot.
