Well, we learned that SOE is going to be creating missions before we get to.

Bummer.

Not much sense to include a mission system when no one is the equivalent of CR5 for a bit, no?

I'm more concerned with the "oh, wow, 2 months in and this game is great, and now every douchebag knows about it!" and said douchebags flood the commander chairs to set sail for fail.

I see the handover to be a very messy endeavor.

So implants will be exclusively acquired using Station Cash? I did not know this.

Nothing really new here, I just find it incredible that E3 is almost exactly two months away and according to Luperza aka @PurrfectStorm we are all going to DIIIIEEEEEEEE!! IRL.

No no, what it sounds like to me is the XP boosts sold in the shop will actually have to be slotted into an Implant slot to work.

So you have to give up an Implant slot to get the boost. Which I think is a GREAT idea personally.

The Implants themselves (like grenades, medpacks, ect.) can only be purchased with the ingame resources and not with station cash.

That is how I understood it also. Which to me sounds very hopeful as it would show that they are not trying to force their cashshop as much on players like most F2P games tend to do. Still that is only one aspect, so I will wait and see what else will show up in the shop.

Anyone have any examples / ideas on what missions will get you to do besides "go here, conquer territory"?

Re: Game Front Interview with Higby


Maybe things like ''kill a certain amount of a certain class'' (for instance, medics).
Or the same, but with vehicles.

nope!
because the game isn´t about killing and oldschool mmorpg-mobgrinding!

missions will only be about capturing and disabling of certain base-parts.

like disable vehicle terminal, disable shield generator or whatever.

and maybe logistical missions like setup forward base at wp1 or resupply certain battlegroups. but we don´t know much about the logistics.

and there will be the countermissions. resecure command centre, resecure vehicle terminal, etc.
or hold base x at all costs

but i am sure the "kill 200 maxes with a tank" type stuff will be in the game as well. just not as missions, but as merits. like in planetside 1. you can get merits or trophys for certain actions. those merits have no influence on the game. no perks or whatever. in ps1 they gave small merits you could stick on your shoulders, and a few unlocked special vehicle variants, like the bfr flight variant for which you had to kill 1000(or so) enemys while piloting a standard bfr. but i don´t think the devs want to link merits to vehicles again.
and you don´t have to concentrate on those merits to do them. they just keep score and eventually you get the merit. in ps1 there were certain higher level merits that required a killstreak at the end. like kill 5 enemys with your pistol without respawning in between

Its an automated system that creates missions. At least that was the plan. Dont think it has been changed, its more like the Interviewer fucked up.

Sounds like Higby partook in the hotel breakfast buffet...never a good choice.

Any press is good press!
