Yes, you still can earn the 999th TEST Squadron, just make sure to get Master Modes Duel, it will stop in 2 days.

Just enter the required master mode and finish it. You don't have to win, just participate and wait untill you get the notification that you got that mode.
@marcsand2 , ever since you were awesome enough to start this thread, @Ataleena & I have been working on knocking these out in the time windows that you listed. So far, 4 down with 3 to go. We're looking to TESTify our badges & titles. Cheers!

I'd prefer Mirror Mode if I was able to fire a weapon :D Didn't plan on coming back to play for a while but the batch is a strong motivator. Just one more mode to go (I hope - if the others did register properly). Thx guys for this notice. Otherwise would have missed this for sure.

Alt-K to get the Fury into combat state. Yes, annoying AF. But fun to fly!!

There's also a toggle switch above & to the right to Deploy your wings & weapons on the Fury in case you forget about the Alt + K.

I dont know why they have such a hard time with land vehicles. Way too bumpy, too floating, too slidey. Need better shocks and better traction.
I can see that tanks could get stuck on certain sizes of rocks when driven by idiots. But the tank battle maps have a suspiciously high density of rocks of just the right size to get a tank stuck on them in the spawn points, almost as if it was on purpose. Yay, realism (maybe?). Boo, not really all that much fun.
And does the Tonk have a zoom sight? I haven't tried very hard to find it, but even with targeting, I couldn't seem to hit much and other players seemed to hit me okay, so I guess there is one.

@Ataleena & I just got ours completed.

Physics engine in game along with server lag makes for a weird experience. The solution might be for them to slightly loosen the server side authority and allow slight positioning deviation to give ground vehicles more freedom in the physics engine to give a better experience. Mostly what your seeing is the slow server tick rate the discrepancy between sever client game states and that is manifesting as this weird floaty slidey experience. You see it a little in ship racing but it's not as pernounced as you don't have the same physics interaction with the ground.

I was 1 of the idiots Tonk'ing around that kept locating the rocks by finding myself stuck on them each time I tried to go anywhere after I respawned. I was blaming my PC's single digit FPS for the issue of not seeing them in time. Oops
