My outfit is recruiting too, but only good players.
My outfit is new to Planetside and for the past month we ran a poll to decide what faction to go after trying them all out. It closed tonight and Vanu won. Sorry I'll be throwing my batteries at you.

I'm sad I missed question time. I am very sad no one asked about support class gadgets. We need more.

Well the plus side is that the NC got the least amount of votes. It was a tight race between TR and VS. It was kind of funny because people campaigning for TR or VS were trying to get NC votes to switch to bump up their own factions.

It is common knowledge that the NC got screwed in the weapons category.

However I have been NC since 03'.

It would be wrong to turn my back on my comrades at this point.

NC have fun weapons. I don't think they're that bad.

One thing I loved from this interview was Smedley denouncing unpracticed failure pilots.

I love a challenging flight model that has idiosyncrasy about it, and I'm glad to hear that will stay. It's so much more rewarding, and fun (long term especially) to really have to practice and figure it out.

A look at the bare weapons stats begins to illustrate the severe problems with the NC weapons.

Meh .. I feel like I get a lot of kills just running around with a pistol.

IMO - be smart about movement and flow of battle and you can cleanup with anything that goes pew pew. I played NC exclusively during beta and never had an issue with any class / weapon.

(not to suggest that gun stats don't matter, but if there is a 'severe' issue, I didn't notice it)

edit: Smeds 'open' development idea is amazing. I'm genuinely surprised that a company the size of SOE is pioneering in this ...

It was great to be able to tune in live, the first time I have been able to do that with AGN

Completely agree with Hamma's concern about the new player experience.

Love the show.


So no water tubes to follow behind our Magriders? I would love ride of the valkyries while my magrider dragged a squad of water skiers across a lake/large river.

In a more serious note i would also like to see a totally overgrown continent where your moving through the trees.
