    The new method would be better if it worked over a greater distance, it's currently something like 160uu. Three times that would be a start in my opinion, although it's not exactly game breaking it just means hardly anyone ever links up.

      LoL, I even remember him/her/it.

      Yeah, but I'm not really sure if that's just with ONS Plus. Anyway I think you got more points when you're the one who starts the chain, so certain people tried to force you to stop healing the node on your own and link up with them, although they arrived after you... dunno, I just always linked up. :P

        Could be that it's an ONS+ feature. I've only played ONS+ since I discovered that server, and I was really just a n00b before then.

          This way, everybody linking can also shoot. The old way, only the person on the end of the chain could shoot.
          So, more multikils for everyone else?

          Thats sounds interesting though. Im not too sure why they changed it, could have been so it was easy to link up with teammates on consoles.

            Quoted for truth.
