    Not really, it's pretty much the same. But now it has small player "bases". That's in quotes because the construction stuff, while neat is mostly meh.

    Edit: To expand on what I said. The player bases were made to introduce HIVES and ANTs. ANTs mine and refine cortium, which can be found in various spots around the continents. Cortium is the new resource used to craft player bases. HIVES can generate victory points. However they need to be placed kinda close to an enemy warpgate to be most effective. The main problem with player bases is the fact that they can be easily destroyed by 1 gal drop, since most of the stuff takes heavy damage from rockets/c4/tank mines. This has led to a meta where bases aren't really defended too well, and become easy targets.

    Edit 2: The new way to lock a cont. 15 vp(victory points) are needed to lock a cont now. VP is kinda split between temp and perm vp. Perm vp are created by linking to an enemy warpgate 2vp, linking to both warpgates is an extra 4vp, capping all biolabs 3vp, capping all tech plants 3vp, capping all amp stations 3vp, control all biolabs/techplants/amp stations 15vp, control 7 active HIVES 3vp, refining cortium with an active HIVE 1vp per every 10000 cortium (faction wide). Temp vp is created by capping territories (amount depends on how much territory your faction controls), your faction having the most active HIVES 2vp. You can lose temp vp by losing territory and by losing HIVES.
