Yeah this is something I'm waiting for too.


If he actually carries any weight in the direction of the game I think we can all guess which game he'll try to lean it towards...

Honestly, PS2 isn't "e-sport" material and the very idea of a CS/COD player coming into a game like PS2 is laughable. Respect anyone who can "make a living" playing a game but he isn't qualified to provide anything other than casting knowledge for the game. Don't get me wrong, PS2 definitely has room for improvement on the casting/presentation/etc.

Sorry but FPS in general have always failed at e-sports, just not very interesting to watch people run around on a map just playing the min max game. I'd much rather see the game actually played and have soft counters like a true e-sport game.

Re: Jimmy Whisenhunt Joins PlanetSide 2 Team


I understand a lot of the devs love esports, but please, don't do it to Planetside.

Trying to tune WoW PvP for esports is what killed the PvP scene, when you try to balance a game about massive scale battles for small and contained competitive gameplay, it breaks.

There's no reason PS2 can't be competitive, but when you start balancing the game for specific scenarios and not the main game is when things will go wrong.

So it sounds like he's going to influence the way the game is played, I do not like this when you consider he's not invested in the IP.

Get him an account. PS2 success is based on the community involvement. The more he understands us, the better use he is. Assimilate him

If they wanted an FPS pro they should've hired me...

Just saying...

-edit- How's he supposed to give valuable feedback on a game he hasn't touched until today?

Guys he's not here to change PlanetSide 2 into CS, or make an eSport, he's here to help us make our weapons FEEL awesome, balanced and competitive. Having a competitive FPS player on the team is going to help us out a lot.

And, as an aside, crying about "OMG HE'S GOING TO MAKE IT A COPY OF THIS OTHER THING AND IT OWN'T BE PLANETSIDE ANYMORE!1!"1

Game design is a team thing. He's going to be part of the team. He is not going to run the team, he is not going to force the team to turn the game into an arena shooter or a CS clone. What would someone like this bring to the team? Experience with a wide variety of FPS games and an understanding of what makes those games good will help Planetside 2's team deliver a fantastic shooter experience, and that's a good thing for everyone.

yeah basically what higby said while I was writing this

As long as he doesn't make them look/feel like they do in GO we should be fine.

We actually discovered him from his video talking about why the weapons in GO feel bad, check it out.

Re: Jimmy Whisenhunt Joins PlanetSide 2 Team


This seems pretty smart actually. Developers really have alot to think about, and don't usually see a game as well as really really good players do. When you are nose deep in 'We gotta move this box 20 units to the right' and 'We should tweak this gun to have .1 more fire rate', you lose a little perspective

Someone like this will figure out the way to play the game, understand it as well as or better than us, and be able to provide an insight into the team that is incredibly awesome for player experience.

Thanks for the clarification.


I'm honestly annoyed at the biased opinions given about professional Counter-Strike players.
Especially seeing as how I was in his shoes for almost 6 years.
