    This account is only a few months old. When did trials end?

    Edited:

    Also, recalling to the sanctuary crashes my game. :/

    Alright, I'm playing ingame, part of the NC. Love flying. Nearly any cert I could forget ended up with the points going to flying.

    Ingame name is truedarkreign.

    Wow Planetside is impossible.

    I do all the trainings, get Uni-Max.

    Fucking Max armor is useless. I played for 3 hours today, didn't ever get any kills, got my ass handed to me by everything.

    The only kill I ever got so far is when I got in a tank gun and killed a Lightning.

    I'm going to forget unimax and I'm going sniper or pilot.

    Which empire are you playing? If you're playing NC or VS your maxes should be pretty easy to use. TR is a little more interesting. Anyway, MAXes take time to get used to but put a LOT more power into your hands. You won't be very effective in other roles until you have more cert points to spend.

    If you want some easy XP just get any vehicle cert and then use ANTs and refuel base silos. Just make sure you're in a squad when you do it: there's no point wasting that experience. (Every "tick", which is approximately a second, you'll get 20 SEP, and so will anyone in your squad that is in range. SEP is not divided up, it's copied... so make sure to share!) BTW that 20 sep is just what I remember, things might have changed as it has been a LONG time since I played.

    VS had the coolest MAX power by far.

    Agreed, NC just had great weapons. But by far, my favourite MAX is the TR AA MAX. I still think they should have buffed the range further than they already have, but regardless, it has the most DPS of all the AA MAXes (well it did pre-VS buff) and if used by an experienced user can make reaver pilots cry.

    But then when I played armor convoys for TR/NC, I was often a skyguard gunner so me being a flak user shouldn't be shocking.

    NC AA max and AI max are awesome. Just stay indoors with the Scattercannon and pick off aircraft with the Sparrow. The nice part about the Sparrow is that you don't need to maintain a lock, missiles are fire and forget.

    I could never snipe when I played this game again a year or so ago. It's like my cursor was confined to a grid that didn't even scale to the zoom, meaning an enemy could be standing in between the places my cursor could snap to, and therefore be impossible to aim at. Did anyone else get this?

    I don't want to resub until I know people are actually playing.

    Not to mention that sniping, for the most part, is easily the least-useful infantry perk.

    As of now, pop has been very good with news of PS Next, we're currently having pretty massive outside battles with somewhere near 60-70 per side.

    I can't get my launcher to work, it just pops up Planetside and shows a large gray box. I wanted to sub to this but eh, not now.

    Most times when I recall to Sanctuary and occasionally on normal warps I crash to desktop. Anyone else have this issue?
    I'm running Win7 64-bit (and the program in XP-SP3 compatibility). I've changed to SP2 compatability. Hopefully that fixes it, but I highly doubt it will.


    Can we get a FP outfit going?

    Edit: Wow, a whole day of getting our asses kicked. Nobody willing to go cap a base on a different planet to pull some of the enemy away or create a new front. We lost base after base and rather than reconsidering our tactics we just kept on getting steamrolled. Retarded.

    There was a pop-lock on Cyssor last time I played. People were surprised.

    Edited:

    I will get one sorted when I next go ingame. Message me on Steam about it

    We are getting our ass kicked in Esamir!

    Also I found my calling. I forgot unimax and got myself air scout and air assault.

    I got six kills at the same time by doing a rocket strafe on a group of infantry.

    Also killed a colossus.

    I also am going to invest in the assault class so I can get a minigun. Those tear shit up.

    I know because whenever I fight infantry I get my shit wrecked by dudes with miniguns.

    lol

    People are killing you with chainguns because they've played a really long time, not because it's any better than the other HA. The guns are pretty well balanced.

    If guns are well balanced how come I can't even kill light infantry with a gauss rifle. From medium range and I get the first shots off.

    you must be pretty terrible with it then. empire specific medium assault is very very good for medium to long range combat, it's best to fire in bursts of 3-5 depending on what you're using (3 for gauss, 4 for pulsar and 5 for cycler)

    use suppressor.

    With decent aiming and forgiving recoil you can really apply dps greater than some other guns.

    The suppressor will take 2-3 reloads to kill rexos and agiles. It's useless compared to MA.
