They'd always said (or for a long time anyways) there'd be offline training but this is the first that I'd heard it was linked to the subscription.

That's fine tbh, we'd wondered what would be the benefit of the sub/membership.

the game is more than likely ready for beta testing , i would be more than happy to wait that extra little bit just to have a polished game , some system requirements would be good to know , i think this game will be more demanding than bf3 , only just , i think this would be good to know so that gives us all time to prepare our gaming pcs ready for release

Being pretty new to PS2 (actually anything PS related), I haven't yet come across the following mentioned in that interview:

Even more, the outfits themselves have their own upgrade trees, allowing you to specify your group’s abilities.
It totally depends on the implementation on how outfits will be able to accomplish the above of course (I have seen some sparse information about outfit points). But it has been my experience that often such a mechanic, in a competitive setting, discourages forming smaller guilds(outfits) as they would be at an inherit disadvantage compared to their larger counterparts. Which would then remove a good amount of diversification from the game and make it revolve around a few of the largest outfits on each side (and too bad if you're not in it). But hopefully it is balanced in such a way that smaller outfits can keep up if they specialize.

The core game engine and online technology is built, Higby tells me, but some smaller elements, like gun models, are in need of tweaking.
O.o So that means we are getting really close. My guess is that once we see 'MAX week' we will be 2 weeks away from first wave of beta.

Think about what we have and have not: Cloakers, Medics, Engys, Heavy, and Light Assault. We still need: MAX, Female Avatars (which they said would announce in a special way), The lightning! (WHERE FOR ART THOU LIGHTNING?!)

As stated above, when we get these IMO the BETA will only be moments away.

One of the leading outfits, by points, on emerald had a player limit of 50. From what I have seen, massive outfits tend to be less efficient per person in regards to points earning.

It's all dependent on when each outfit was created, who the players are etc... It's not as simple as a clean cut as you've made out.

Re: Piki Geek PAX Interview


if PS1 is any basis, and nothing special happens with gaining outfit EXP then the largest outfits will level faster, Future Crew is the only sub 100 player outfit to hit 10m in points, and we only achieved that in 2007.

But there are multiple ways to overcome this.

warhammer had a method where members of larger guilds contribute less to the guild leveling, which worked well, my guild of 40 highly active members were one of the highest level guilds on our server, despite been one of the smallest.

or you could have it so that only your top say 10-30 members per day contribute to the leveling of an outfit.

The outfit bonuses are part of their 20% upgrade maximum. The bonuses probably wont be very significant, so atm I'm not worried if bigger outfits get stuff first.
