Game Update 11 is now playing on an Auraxian server near you, and SOE
creative director Matt Higby
dropped by the game's official forums this week to bring players up to speed. Higby says that SOE asked players for feedback in terms of what to focus on for GU11, and the dev team received "an absolutely massive list of requests ranging from minor nitpicks all the way up to fundamental game changing suggestions, and those requests have guided how we've approached and prioritized the changes for this update."
You can see a brief synopsis of the patch highlights -- including more piloting XP -- in Higby's original post. You can also view the full patch notes via the PlanetSide Universe wiki
