Red 5 is making Firefall more accessible for new pilots just in time for them to make double their money.
Red 5, as part of their new patch (v0.7.1694) have announced that starting on August 9th at 10am PST, all players will begin to receive Double Crystite for all PvP, mission rewards, and resource drops across New Eden! This event will run through Monday, August 11th. In addition to these money-making event, Red 5 has also put up all battleframes for only 7 Pilot Tokens and add that this sale will last until August 20th. In addition to these savings, they have also thrown in a new glider (on a separate cooldown), a new helmet, and decal with each Red Bean purchase but have limited these rewards to 1 per account. In addition, Red 5 has added PVP Leaderboards and adjusted all sorts of difficulty levels in favor of "junior" players. See you out in Copacabana this weekend!
For players who love PVP, Firefall seems to be using your standard ELO system. At the current time, you can see your ELO score based on global leaderboards as well as your friendlist. You can see your ELO adjustment at the end of each PVP match or through the Nav Wheel.
With Red 5 declaring their intent to create an E-Sport worthy game, this particular system is of special interest. Twitch.tv integration seems to be working really well but we haven't heard a lot about this feature since about this time last year.
