    POLLING TIME!

    What's your default class in empires?

    The one that is set for you as soon as you join a team for the first time.

    Steps to follow:
    - Close empires if it's already open.
    - Restart empires
    - Join a server (nubs main)
    - Join a team (BE)
    - Record the class that is set when the class selection screen is opened for the first time.


    I tested this on nubs main, and joining BE.
    For me, I get given scout by default, then have to change it manually for engineer.

    Right now it's Scout with enhanced senses. In the previous map I tried it was Engineer with repair upgrade. What am I supposed to vote?

    @Ranger Whichever you feel you get given most.
    But it could be map specific perhaps?

    Also... The server remembers your preferences, so you may get back exactly how you left it...

    I think class selection persists between maps though...

    I know I was there. Scout has always been the standard class.

    The point is, in the code.. The default is set as class 0... Which is engineer.

    Scout is class 3.

    So I'm investigating.

    Its supposed to be engineer, but before that it was scout

    since empmod is spaggetti coded, this could easily be a situational bug

    I just validated my game files after changing from the beta branch. And now I have engineer set as default class. I would advise everyone to do this, as the scout default i believe is a bug that is left over from a previous update.

    for me its engineer for both faction on both dedicated and listening servers.

    i noticed some minor glitch tho, if you dont close a menu when changing server it stays open.
