I've only cursed at it a little bit while adding my own horrendous code.

Hey, just want to say thank you for the site. I always came here to find the most relevant news concerning Planetside. I loved the dedicated community. It's really what made Planetside what it was.

What level of crazy are we talking here? I've been known to do crazy, a lot!

Be a shame to see this website go. Not only did it allow me to show my passion for PS1, it allowed me to go as far as I could with loving PS2.

Great site I remember all the names. And wont forget any of it regardless of what SOE done to me.

Ill never forget both games, PS1 more than PS2, but still amazing times on both.

Best of luck Ham & Jen and the rest, its amazing what differences a few years can make.

I'm guessing by the posts I've read that the game hit some bad times? I hate to say it, but even when PS2 was in development it seemed it was going in the wrong direction. We all saw it, we all commented, we tried to tell them. But as big companies do, they never listen to the communities that know best. PS2 just wasn't enough like PS1 (very addictive game). Anyway hope all goes well for the future. Ill keep popping back showing my face.

Good luck everybody.

Oh and good luck in 2016.

Re: All Good Things


PS2's success can be argued either way, whether it be the game development decisions or the marketing related decisions. I think there are a lot of reasons it wasn't as successful as it could have been. I don't think it would have been any more successful had it been a clone of the PS1 feature set.

My decisions are mostly personal to slim the site down. Though a big part of it is most of the folks I built relationships with at SOE are now gone for one reason or another. And I think the day of classic fan sites are past. It's nearly impossible to compete with all of the instant gratification available out there (reddit, twitter, etc). The things that made us strong are essentially available to anyone with an internet connection now.

Re: All Good Things


I'm not sure it's fair to say PS2 has hit bad times. It's hit a point when populations are declining but my sense is not that badly and not more than PS1 did at the same stage (if you bear in mind that only a proportion of PS2 base are paying customers while all were in PS1).

I think from comments on reddit that PS2 has been a disappointment to SOE/DBG but then so was PS1.

It was a disappointment to me, even though I played enough to get a BR100 and a bit more, it never had the magic of PS1 and I know that opinion is widely shared.

However many people do like it a lot so good luck to them.

It's sad to me because it could have been so much more. There was so much potential. I think it's far from a failure personally but man could it have been so much more.

Re: All Good Things


TS3 and IRC have been shut down and the forums and front page have been slimmed down a bunch, I've also disabled advertisements. See you guys on Discord and occasionally here on the forums We will continue to monitor the forums for reports as well as the contact e-mails and Twitter/Facebook when issues are experienced. There will also be a bit of downtime and maintenance over the next few days to further consolidate services.

Thanks for everything Hamma and Jenny.

The VS dogtag Jenny sent me after a stream giveaway about 3 years ago is still in my possession Thanks for that, I was always impressed that she actually sent it considering I was a third of the way around the earth.

Thanks for your awesome contribution to the PS community through these many years. You will always be my benchmark for fan run community sites.
