I would do Planetside 2 videos but none of my friends are in the beta at the moment.
Oh i saw you doing that live, bah i was hoping for new material.
cee ech killroye
I got spawn camped by the TR, so I was shooting out of the forcefield. they had the points all taken so I was alone, and they were waiting for the facility to flip so they were just all outside, unable to shoot in, but I could shoot out.
I killed 17 of them in one life, also, Bouncing Betties fucking own. One hit killers. I'd put them on those teleports, by terminals, you name it, they'll take out 2 and 3 people in a single blast. But they're expensive. Also I like how they fixed spawn tube dying, by disabling fall damage
Faction loyalty aside, which one would you guys choose if you had to and this was real life?
I'd choose Vanu.
Newer technology makes us capable to do more, and is often much better than the previous and older technology.
Apparently C4 does around 75% of a maxes health in damage.
So do the key giver-awayers on twitter just not like art, or are they getting SO many requests a second that they really don't see a 600x400 picture every 20 minutes?
everyone flickering out of existence 30 feet away from me adds an interesting dynamic to the game.
Best way to farm kills and experience is go into a hot zone with tons of people dropping in. Get dual AA max and commence assrape of all that drop in.
West 02 is a fucking mess right now because the only faction that's on is NC; Almost no TR or VS.
This is why having this number of servers is a bad idea.
Everyone ends up scattering and things become really unbalanced, very quickly due to unbalanced populations.
I actually do kind of hope that they go back to having one East, one West, and one EU server; Basically just one of each.
I'd honestly rather experience a little bit of lag every now and then with a constantly high and balanced population, than to have shit like this happen.
Especially since your stats from one server don't carry over to the others.
If I want to go switch to a server that has a balanced population, my character on that server is miles behind my main one.
I'm not in the beta, so I'm only speaking from having watched youtube videos, BUT:
I really dislike the death animation. I don't like it in Battlefield, and I don't like it in this. I'd prefer to just see through my ragdoll's eyes as it falls to the ground/flies through the air.
It's just, too slow, and cause of the lack of "low health/death indicators" (I don't want strawberry jelly, but something would be nice), it's hard to tell when you die.
At least it looks like it is. This is only from watching gameplay videos.
Actually, after watching some Battlefield 3 videos again (I don't actually have it), I realize that it's actually okay in BF3, it's just that, as of now, the current first person death animation in Planetside 2 is just bad looking.
You don't need any death indicators.
In the game it's pretty damn easy to tell when you're dead; plus you do see your death in first person for the first five seconds before you hover over your body.
You're able to see yourself fall to the ground.
The animation does suck right now; but i'm sure they'll make it better eventually.
The first person death animation is the only death animation that plays period.
As I said, it sucks right now.
They'll make it better, but it doesn't even come close to being on the priority list right now.
End of day populations on West 02:
VS - 14%
TR - 14%
NC - 71%
Both VS and TR got pushed back to their warp gates simultaneously and that is where they remain.
I'm actually glad they're doing it because it adds solid proof to my earlier argument that there shouldn't be more than one server each. What pisses me off more is that my current main character is on that server, but I think i'll start playing on West 01 and EU when they're open from now on.
In fact, I love the EU server the most because it's the only server that's open during those times.
Everyone and everything is in the same place. Nice and centralized.
I think the reason there are some many NC all of a sudden is because our scattercannons on the MAX units are broken as hell right now.
Either that or everyone wanted the whole map to be blue.
Or maybe it was a freak coincidence and we're going to have a population problem on our hands.
Everyone either left the game, or left that server for another server.
There are too many servers and SOE needs to get rid of atleast one of them and not add anymore.
Oh well... I grabbed a few screens earlier and if someone doesn't already do it, i'll bring up the issue with SOE.
The death animation is pretty ugly, and it sometimes loops for me multiple times when I fly above my body, but I remember the devs saying somewhere on twitter that they are looking forward to changing it. Can't find a prooflink unfortunately.
Also, how's the new patch for you guys? My fps went a bit higher, and I finally managed to defend the crown without watching a pathetic slide show. I still get random fps drops, but I believe they'll fix that.
The least SOE could do right now is some how give us a way to make our stats on one server carry over to the others.
We've already established this.
Also, I don't know about you guys but with the last patch my framerate improved a solid 10 fps.
My lowest is 10 yet my game is somehow almost perfectly smooth.
I'm still running this maxed out on my 260 GTX; which still makes me wonder why they gave such high recommended specs for the video card.
It seems like RAM and CPU plays the biggest part; and i'm doing pretty good with my 12 gigs and i7.
Yeah, I get no stuttering at all anymore save for first spawn.
Now just gotta get him to make us some sanctuaries and continent locking.
Higby also confirmed 5 squad platoons.
They're also changing the squad spawn mechanic for the 10 man squads soon.
There is no slider in the current build afaik
