The Vindicators (VS) are recruiting for PS2. [NA Server]


The Vindicators are recruiting.


Who are we?
We fought for the Vanu Sovereignty on the US East - Emerald server, although we had members from all around the world.

In late 2002 I founded The Vindicators outfit in preparation for the original Planetside and started recruiting people from the official forums as all I saw was an abundance of specialised outfits dedicated to being pure cloakers or snipers (or both); something I saw as being near useless with the grand battles PS promised. We quickly gained members as the months leading up to beta ticked away, ending up with about 120. When beta finally started we recruited a lot of people, finding amongst them great leaders who have stuck with us and led chapters for the community in other games.


When Planetside was in its prime we often had a full platoon working together with separate armour, air and infantry squads coordinating some pretty impressive feats. In particular I remember a 5 hour defence of Tore, Cyssor, and a time when we turned the tide of a battle that had been raging for three whole days around a single base. We were a member of the Vanu Round Table Alliance, which organised large raids for over a year until various outfits left the game. We also participated in the outfit wars, winning the majority of our matches.

Over the years we have had successful MMO chapters in World of Warcraft, Voyage Century Online, Darkfall, Age of Conan and Guild Wars. However Planetside has always been the game that we started in and Planetside 2 will see us return in style.

Why would you want to join?
The Vindicators have always been proud of the friendly, almost family like atmosphere that we have between our members. We developed this from the nature of our first game Planetside and the interdependence that it fostered between our members as we sent Mag columns and Gal drops into enemy territory.


My intention is to make us a deciding force on the battlefield once again and to do this we need both quality and quantity of troops. Quantity is simply a matter of recruitment, while quality is something we expect of and will also train in our members.

To help with quality I have put together a tactics website to help guide our members to play together as effectively as possible. Our platoon aims to be the most coordinated in the game, using voice communications to organise combined arms assaults on the enemy using the detailed tactics and strategies described on the site.

What do we expect?
Our outfit was always open to all players who were interested in working as a coordinated team and we will continue this in Planetside 2, expecting all our members to use Teamspeak to aid coordination. We do expect our players to act maturely, with a (mental) age of at least 16. Although we play on the North American servers we have a large number of players from elsewhere including a large number (myself included) from Europe.

If you are interested in joining up head to our website at www.thevindicators.com or send me a message.

Hi there, i`m also uk based and keen to sign up. I tried registering for the Vindicator forums and got a "we dont accept spammers" message, despite filling in the captcha properly. I`ve sent a message to the webmaster as directed, but am a bit puzzled by what the problem was.

Hope this can be resolved soon.

Please do, tried again today and got this again....

"Registration denied, this forum runs an active policy of not allowing spammers. Please contact us via the "Contact Us" page link if you believe this is in error"

The contact us message i sent hasnt yet had a reply.

If someone could set up an account for me, with the name "Yelena", i`d be happy, but i`d wager this problem might be stopping others from registering, so it definitely needs fixing.

At PAX a bunch of Vindicators met up and tracked down Higby for a drink and a few questions.

TheBtron, Matt, Raumkampfer and Kurzgan


You can see more details in this thread.

Damn, wish I'd been able to join them. Unfortunately, the weekend tickets were sold out before I could get them. Ah well.


And yeah, you folks looking to join up, this outfit is the real deal. I joined up with two other outfits prior to joining the Vindicators. Those other outfits kinda petered out and folded before the first year of Planetside was over and done with. Then I joined these guys and shortly after, I never wanted to leave.

They're not super-hardcore but get professional real quick when the action's on, kind of casual-professional. We'll ask you to cut the chatter when the heat is on but when it's not, there's plenty of room to chat, joke and connect with your fellow outfitmates. Everybody's nice and you don't have to worry about massive egos causing drama, we tend to show them the door real quick.

I also joined with ambitions of leadership and learned from some of the best leaders I'd ever served with, eventually joining them myself. There's plenty of upward mobility for anyone with leadership talent, and plenty of people to learn from. Hell, I'll definitely pass on a few pointers myself if you want to take a turn at the helm.

You don't have to be the best shot to join us, and if you're the sort who racks up the kills but can't work with a team, we don't want ya. But, if you want to be the best, work with the best, and work for goals that really matter, join The Vindicators. We stick together, fight for meaningful objectives and look after our own.

Re: The Vindicators (VS) are recruiting for PS2.


I've been with The Vindicators since 2003 when the visionary himself Dviddleff/Vindicore created the outfit. The Vindicators are more than just an outfit/guild/clan, we are a community and our members are close knit like a dysfunctional family of gamers.

I wrote this little war story up back in 2009, for a thread we had in our forums where we retold our favourite moments in the outfit. and I believe Rock Paper Shotgun ran it in a contest they had for best Planetside War Stories. This is the unedited full of curse words version you would expect to hear directly from my mouth.

Outfit Wars: There was this Uber Elite TR outfit that was supposed to just clean the floor with everyone. I don;t remember their name , just that they were TR and made good looking corpses.

Anyways we are FLYING off the resurgence in numbers that has happened since this outfit wars thing. I remember the first match some absurd number like 60 people showed up to be part of it and we had to turn half the people away because we didn't have room for everyone. The Platoon was composed primarily of old school Vindicators that dusted off their gear for one last hoorah. These matches were fuckin epic.

First off We had Barney running the show. I personally had always thought Barney was a snot nosed jackass as he really showed up after my prime time in PS. I always just heard him and Kazzo running their mouths but their was no denying that they were killing machines. What I really didn't know was how naturally gifted he was at organizing and leading people. Which was funny...because let's be honest Barney sounded like a dork, but the guy absolutely knew his shit, and could run circles around me in PS like I wasn't there. Besides he is a GREAT guy.

Second we had Cephus. Mr. Smart ass, but god dammit he was funny as hell, and a hell of a Magrider pilot. Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE loved Cephus. You could be getting the shit kicked out of you but if Cephus was there you still had a smile on your face.

GSKPS1 was there, the dude is solid as a rock, and he was running our defense. His group of 10 guys could hold off double their numbers and not break a sweat.

IceGargoylle...really is there any that was ever better in a VS MAX suit than this guy? He never seemed to be out of it and was always carving his way through infantry like they were made of playdough.

Chaff67, MY GOD is there a happier man in existence? seriously? I miss Chaff he was a great guy and a MEAN skygaurd gunner

Raumy. Fuckin Raum...I swear I've NEVER seen anything more pathetic than what we dubbed, "The Raum effect". This kid (*who I will admit is a little hottie*) joins the outfit and has EVERY SINGLE GUY falling over themselves talking to her. Ventrillo was like a nightclub where 30 drunk guys are trying to hit on the one hot chick that is WAY out of their league. It was embarrassing and some of the things they said just made me /facepalm. BUT, Raum was a great medic/hacker and she was crazy dependable.

Btron, Raziel, DrifterBG, Woop, NethawK, Tssha, MaximusRudeDog, Zeke, Dave and a whole shitload of others that I simply just can't remember. Was Snorfy there?? I can't remember...There were many others and we cycled through as many of our guys as possible so that everyone would get a chance to play in one of these events.

ANYWAYS: the day came where we were going to go up against this TR outfit. They had blown everyone out of the water and had their sights set on us. They were all shit talking about how they were just going to walk over us like nothing.
- We had other plans

We made the decision to play a defensive game, this was NOT popular with some of our guys, I remember Ice being as pissed as I've ever seen him and threatened to quit if we ever pulled that kind of shit again. But in retrospect it was a brilliant strategy, because we were there to prove a point. Nobody walks over us.

So the day comes, GSKSP1 has his defense squad all geared up and in position, mines and turrets are EVERYWHERE. Barney has everyone on the same page. We are going to roll Skygaurds and Magriders and when the TR rush us in their skeeters like we know they will do we will be waiting. Me and someone else were the lone Starfire MAX's on this glorious Anti Air day.

The match started and just like we expected in came a squadron of skeeters afterburners roaring, going for the gen drop as per usual (they were so predictable)....problem was...they never even got close! 5 Skygaurds, 5 Magriders and 2 Starfires lit those motherfuckers up! You could tell that they were like WTF!@!!?? But they didn't stop and they kept coming, but again we dropped them, a few squeaked through but GS's squad were fuckin ANIMALS on defence and no one even broke the seal on the base.
I remember I was sitting there on a hill with a huge shit eating grin on my face blasting the hell out of Skeeter after skeeter, and what I couldn't bring down the flak of the skygaurds or Lasers from the maincannons of our Magriders tore to pieces. These guys were getting absolutely fucked up but they were coming hardcore and little by little they would get closer to their goal.

Now...as luck would have it the match was coming to an end. There was time for one last push. Barney made the call, "Defend the base!" so all our forces turtled and it was a damn smart move because this time they brought EVERYTHING. 30 Skeeters screamed through the sky, and I remember thinking..."oh fuck"...We brought down as many as we could and the fighting was ferocious, but they had no intentions ok keeping those birds in the air, they all just ditched them the moment they were over our base.

Now this.....this was bad. As much as I hate to admit it these guys were good at what they did. If they got their foot in the door you were in alot of trouble because they came at you guns blazing and their firepower simply trumped everyone elses. On this day however they ran into 30 of the most determined bastards ever, because there was no fucking way in hell we were going to lose. Not now, not this day and especially not to these tomatoes. As the match's final seconds ticked down we were mopping up the remains of their forces.

The forums after this LIT UP, and the TR were spouting off about how much we sucked and we were cowards and blah blah blah. The reality was, they did not steam roll through us and they were denied victory by some of our finest. We may not have "won" per se but it was IMHO our greatest victory. :-D

Re: The Vindicators (VS) are recruiting for PS2.


Great story Kurz, always puts a smile on my face that we ruined KotoR's perfect record.

My story... I took a while getting into the game on the first day, and by the time I was in the outfit was already started up and we had over a squad together (no platoons then, so not really sure). Anyway, I log in and with no vehicle have to hoof my way to Cyssor. Through the entire of Esamir, north to south to get to the right warpgate (no broadcast gates then kids, and 15 minute HART timers).

Before I even get to Jarl I hear the whine of engines; my outfit arrives in a near full Galaxy to pick me up with fighter escort.

After that I knew the game and the outfit was going to be everything I hoped for - and I hadn't even seen the enemy or done my first hot drop.
