Your welcome. More foortage:
Johnnien thanks for those videos, I really enjoy listening to Magnus Jansen
Some stuff I was taking in from that is that things will be a lot more complex then I initially thought.
He said with Battle Cry we can "Heal People" - or have "Their Health will go up" (which might mean more health as in an increase over the standard health) - "Faster at reviving"
He also said that you could "Build a Medic Class" and that "You can go very deep into the class and become very specialised"
So there must be a lot of stuff to find and unlock which will give the player so many ways to customize their perfect load outs and perks - He mentioned weapon mods and other stuff, I am sure we will get months of new info because this now seems like it will be the ultimate where options are concerned.
This bit I am unsure what he means "It is up to the community to decide"
"Do we want more verticality / More open spaces / or just tunnels"
I was thinking that he is maybe talking DLC for the Map Editor so that if the community want more tunnel sections or vertical sections then we would discuss in their forums and it might become possible in the editor - If that is the case then it sounds great but the More Open Spaces makes me think that levels / maps will come pre made with us only been able to manipulate what is already there in the size already designed, as in Halo Forge - so if we wanted more open spaces they would give us a map template like that. (Hope I am wrong but how else and why would a community say we want more Open Spaces?)
By having pre-made templates the maps would maybe also follow Halo Forge in the way that maps could be downloaded straight to consoles as soon as you connect up to the game by queuing them up from a smart phone or from the internet - Maps would also load up a hell of a lot faster because it is the terrain editing / manipulation which has always increased the size of the map file which dictates the length of the download - so a pre made level where everything can be deleted except terrain and water might be the way they go (god I hope I am wrong here)
But if that's what they do then so be it - Massive have big balls for making the decisions they have so far - If it all pays off then they deserve a pat on the back, they sure have altered a lot of stuff but then the game has changed with every release so far so it is becoming the norm now.
Please not something like Halo Forge. Please noooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The map editor from the Far Cry series is just one of the best features ever made for multiplayer. If they are going to throw that away then I will not pre-order Far Cry 3 (and I will buy it used). I would be very disappointed if they will not have a map editor like in FC2/FCIP that would be a shame

The Punish or Save feature at the end of the match - Do we get any bonus for saving or killing the top player from the losing team?
It seems a neat idea at first but could get old quick if there is no differences between the 2 choices, My opinion is that the Player Cam from Instincts and Predator was fun because as the clock ticked down everyone knew the match was ending and they would scramble from both sides to get to the leader.
Those on the losing side wanted to take him down so that the Player Cam when the match ended would show the top player spread eagled on the floor and those on the winning team all wanted to get close to do a winning pose (some were hilarious)
It seems that with FC3 it is pre-detirmined - a cut scene with a save or kill option, sure we will get to unlock other scenarios but is it more of a gimmick?
Can the players Top 3 from the winning team still move around or taunt or do anything while the cut scene is happening.

She said something about a 4 man team working together against wave after wave of enemy, the game she is talking about is released on May the 22nd - It is Ghost Recon Future Soldier on Xbox she mentioned something about pre ordering the game and getting a free upgrade to a signature edition that has different weapons, The bit you mention says "the good thing about this game is you get to see split screen again I know a lot of gamers" Then it cuts out.
So yeah its Ghost Recon - Thanks again for the videos, I am looking out for the new Platform 32 vid which they say is imminent, this should have some new details for us I hope.
Here is a bit of good news.
"The robust level editor from FC2 returns giving players complete control over terrain and the ability to place structures and other objects to wherever they see fit"
That is said in this video below.
Here is another video posted today.
Basically it's Tour Bus time - lots of videos with the same info.
