So how many servers are there for Planetside now? Still one for US West, one for US East and one for Europe?
I remember playing this back in the day with Hezzy and Nodachi.
My computer crashed during big battles so i basically ferried people back and forth, but it was still fun
fuuuck i wanna play so bad but i don't want to do some shitty trial crap, i want my old total boss characters :smithicide:
How about a game this weekend?
@Tinhead50 - Since resubbing 2 days ago every battle I've been has consistently had 100-200 participants with lots of vehicular and infantry combat. The game is still alive and kicking thanks to the beta announcement.
to clear up any confusion
THE SERVER IS AS ACTIVE AS IT WILL EVER BE BEFORE RELEASE OF PS:N
and it feels even better: i've had better hit detection in these battles than in COD and Counterstrike
NC as usual
hopefully we can set up an event using a force recon strategy: we will assemble a caravan of about 4-5 vehicles, 1-2 normal machine gun armored buggys, 2 anti-tank buggy things, and at least 1 anti-air buggy. We will pack all sorts of supplies in the trunk of the cars, like decimators, so that when we engage and enemy we can take a formation and mount an assault from the convoy
best part is, we assemble at sanctuary, drill for like 10 minutes to figure out how we will respond to shit, and then go. people who log on can literally drop right on top of the convoy and fill in any seat
this shit would fucking own, everyone get their anti-tank certs
Ah, should work then because as soon as I move the router like two inches it disconnects just about all connections. I'll try the downloader again and if it doesn't work, power cycle it.
A shame you guys play NC, I'll keep being on my VS character.
you know what sucks about being TR is lack of organization i was on forseal last night we managed to capture 3 bases from the VS but then the counter attack pushed us back to one last time i checked before i logged out there was a BFR knocking on our front door and a GG above our base and the base ran out of power and went neutral one of our hackers managed to hack it but then the VS clean up squads got in i have no clue if the base held
Do any other UK players suffer from dodgey hit detection or am I just a bad shot? Seems that no matter how many rounds (even the tripple shot with the Jackhammer at point blank) just doesn't seem to touch the enemy whilst they have no trouble despatching me with any gun.
Get the enhanced targeting implant, you'll be able to see if it's doing any damage
I have it and it's not, or only does half of the time. Long shots seem to register but when it's 1v1 in a corridoor my shots never seem to have any impact.
If anyone is on in the next few hours, message me in game. SAM11
Hopping on now.
i told some of the goons and the rest of the outfit about the Planetside Sundays and the one planned for the 27th, they're interested so we should have plenty of people playing.
Getting on now aswell, but no clue who I should message to get into the NC outfit, so if someone wants to bug me, I'm TinHead in-game.
Been thinking on re-subscribing, but I forgot how the re-subscription per month works. Does it automatically charge to my account, or do I need to manually re-activate it per month?
automatically but you can just pay for one month then cancel your sub
Great game guys, did well. Pretty much re-secured the home continent, a couple of good battles in there too!
When PS:N comes around let's make an effort to create one of the first truly organized outfits.
we've got 9 of us on now, it's great fun. hezzy is going to make a thread for our outfit and i will make a steam group for announcements and events
Can we please not finalise on a faction before we've all had a feel for them all in PSN?
I hope the rapid fire TR weapons feel very DAKKA DAKKA
Same actually. Mainly for the aesthetics and 'combat philosophy'.
Well I reckon I probably played NC the least.
We should make a thread in general games discussion when we have some gameplay videos. Planetside does not belong among the ilk of runescape.
Lets all agree right now to put Hezzy and nodachi in charge so we don't end up with a huge number of splinter outfits.
They probably will be, but so will a few of the Goons in the current Outfit, IDK if we're gonna stick with the Goons, but they know what they're doing so some of those should be in charge too. Also, we are already in the process of making a separate thread about this.
yeah i'd love to go with the goons, tonight was a blast and one of the most entertaining times i've had in the game
played for about 6 hours straight, holy shit that was fun.
