For those who have not heard: There is a cloak buff coming for the infil.

Here are the details from reddit:

[–]BBurness 44 points 4 hours ago*

Crouch walking is much less visible than Live
Standing is less visible than Live
Running is slightly less visible than Live
Sprinting, no change

Basically we added proper tiers of visibility based on movement. On Live there is three states deepcloak/poorly cloaked/not cloaked; on test there are 5 states deepcloak/quasi deepcloak/cloaked/poorly cloaked/not cloaked

Edit: We are also working on fixing the bug that can prevent attachments from going into deep cloak

infils are very annoying even now. sniping from another galaxy without any danger for themselves..
now these campers become even more cloaked..
due to a fact i dont play infil class i cant say i like new changes =) tho it is more logical and probably realistic gameplay mechanic

p.s. no offense to our sneaky cloakers, just another noob humble opinion

Hehe, no problem.

For my part, I am also not sure if I like the change. Reason is that apart from Heavys the Infils are my main reason why I die. Ever since the stalker got introduced and all radars only show moving targets (I miss you my flash radar!), it has become hell to find a cloaker before he finds you.

So this problem will increase for me. And I was doing alright with the cloak the way it was.

I guess, I'll see if it helps me or makes life worse.

may be if they make cloak/uncloak timer a bit more longer it could be ok (time to hear and react), but now i think it will be even more instagib smg kills from nowhere

absolute butthurt for me as a medic..
