    What's the average battle size nowadays? Are they just tiny little skirmishes or can they get huge?

    Most battles get poplocked. That means max population is reached.

    So a couple hundred people a battle.

    Hmmm,

    Just had an hour, was OK but at a major disadvantage over the Yanks due to high ping. Found myself dying a hell of a lot without managing to get many shots onto the enemy.

    can we set up a really good mission together? like I'm talking about a super organized recon convoy where we load all sorts of ammunition and supplies in our trunks and move in a convoy of humvee-like future cars and kill everything

    I want to get some vehicle certs so I can be more helpful in bridge battles, all I can really do is stay back and chip at their HP with my Phoenix which takes forever to kill shit with, and they usually get out of range before you can destroy your target. Either that or I lay down Spitfires/Mines.... and revive people. But I don't want to give up my current certs, I like the way they are.

    Edited:

    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 still have this problem, it renders me unable to be an efficient sniper. It's annoying as fuck and I haven't found a solution for it yet.

    Hey medicman, I think I remember playing with you two years ago.
    Around Christmas time we played with Devil's Brigade on NC, I was on a trial account.
    Marauding in enormous tank columns was probably one of the best gaming experiences I've ever had.

    yeah, i think I remember you as well. and yeah i remember the Devil's Brigade... that was the most fun i've ever had in Planetside. some of the ops we ran were epic. such a shame the outfit was disbanded...

    Installation music, so much nostalgia!

    haha this post reminded me of the planetside strategy guide. i remember i got it before i got the game, actually i got planetside for christmas the year it came out as well as my first gaming computer, the one i'm on right now, and the first computer i've had that wasn't complete shit and could actually play the games i wanted to. i spent the next days till i could actually play reading the guide, since it was winter break i was always reading it every waking moment and sometimes i'd stay up late and read it to. I remember i found it at a barnes and noble after having lunch and sat down reading it right there and before i knew it it was late at night.


    i swear i loved that guide so much i could have probably used it as porn. to bad it because useless after the next 5 or so updates.

    That doesn't seem to be too useful. Are players really going to go back and play the older version? Seems like you should just spend that revenue on continually servicing/update Next.

    I can't wait to try the new flight model.

    I hope the improved realism helps keep the level of aircav down, but still in the hands of those good enough to fly it.

    oh god yes

    As much as I loved piloting them, the aircraft in Planetside just felt a little... too easy and safe. And dogfighting was awkward at times.

    You'll get half way before someone spots you and about 10 reavers come your way to spam the shit out of you with missiles.

    Seems most convoys forget to take a couple of skyguards along on the trip. I was in a Vanguard yesterday as the driver. My gunner was too busy trying to shoot a mosquioto that was barely dealing any damage to us to notice the enemy prowler sitting right in front of us pounding the shit out of the tank, not good!

    Stupid Valentines day getting in the way of another Planetside sesh tonight, gotta cook the girlfriend a meal so I'll hopefully be on tomorrow and with a bit of luck, have a better experience this time. As I said earlier, the higher ping is a massive disadvantage with the client-side hit detection. I'm being killed even when I've ran round a corner out of site of the enemy.

    To what? Play planetside next? No, why should you.
    To get into the planetside beta? Yes you have to.
    To play planetside? Yes.


    Also can we get a time when people should log on to play together? Like for example around 8 ?

    Are there any details of how the beta keys will be distributed? Do you have to sign up or are they offered to existing subscribers? Limited numbers or anything like that?

    Which timezone? GMT?

    I think we should organise a big Facepunch Planetside Weekend... But not this coming weekend, I'm away on a business trip

    The weekend after on a sunday at a time where both Europe and US can join in.

    Is this worth a new thread?

    I don't have time to organise the big event tonight. Valentines and all that bollocks, which reminds me. I need to start cooking. Fuckin women!

    I'll plan it for Sunday 27th Feb, nearly 2 weeks. Gives anyone a chance to get into the game (if they haven't already) so long as we keep this thread alive. No point planning too much at the moment because everyone's enthusiasm will fizzle out before the big event. I'll rally as many people as I know, you do the same, everyone on here join in too. We'll make it a big one, start our own zerge.

    What faction is everyone? I'm old fashioned NC, always have been, always will be.

    It shouldn't be that much of a problem. I used to play behind a 128kb/s proxy to get past my uni firewall. I still managed to rake the kills in.

    I even reckon it used to help me in some cases, I used the rare unholy SEXO Surge technique.

    Standard armour + HA/sweeper or Thumper + surge

    Do not underestimate.
