At first I was just shocked that I didn't need intel to unlock strafe, then I noticed the cost for ram and went "WHOA!", of course I sounded like Joey Lawrence when I said it!

Has it been that way since the reset?

I didn't see anyone else saying anything about it

Let me see if I have this right. The problem is that Arenas and Missions are alloted x amount of moves, with the hope that one side dies before it reaches X. If X is reached and your both alive, it panics and makes a move from the other factions. Known about this. It sure beats another Unknown plague

You'll notice we had not this problem until after the fleshies emerged.

thats not entirely true. once x is reached it checks the bots and cons for damage recieved(i think) and the side that's taken the least damage wins, as the either the bots or cons are not in the mission the absent faction takes no damage,

It doesn't matter what the text says, or why, the really important question is do the victors get their win bonus?

I had asumed this was a universal problem, so didnt mention it, but now I think it is only a problem to Firefox users (I dont know anybody who uses Safari, so I have no idea what the status is with them).

Progress/health/stat/whatever bars, they dont show up in FF.

Or more accuratly, they do showup, but then disapear to be replaced with (im asuming) an empty picture box as soon as the page finishes loading.

This isnt a major thing, but the graphical representation did make it easier to read things than havign to read the actual numbers all the time.

Not sure if this is just me, but every so often, the pages will not stop loading unless I tell them to, and when they start doing that, it lasts for a long time. Like something on the page isn't responding. Is it just me, is it just Firefox, or is this a universal problem?

When my net or the site is being slow, that does happen, I asume it's somit to do with the latest firefox (which isnt IMO as good as the last verion for a host of reasons).
