Well, don't forget that PS2 was originally supposed to be a relaunch of PS1.

please have a look at basic server costs,again im not being a twat seriously look at what it costs to run a server,if in doubt .. ask hamma!

plus the more money ps1 can pull in the more chance there is of it continuing.

why do i feel like im arguing with a load of sociology students?

Did you just call me son? Listen, if you're not over the age of 70, and actively puffing on a pipe, I'd appreciate it if you dropped that condescending tone, thanks.

I've worked extensively in the "IT field", I have a master's in Computer Science. SOE runs very large server farms to support its games, it does not rent server space from GoDaddy, and the server space needed to support 12 continents and routing to the 200 or so people they expect to be pinging those servers is negligible in the scheme of SOE's data server budget.

Re: PS going FTP


Clearly Planetside is not costing them very much since it has been running for quite a while now with an extremely small population (if you can call it that lol). It will be interesting to see what happens if a large influx of players join after it goes free to play. I hope that is a "problem" that comes to pass.

If any good players are going to play I would suggest playing like a newb for the first 1-2 months/weeks and playing support based only. Nothing stops people playing than getting owned by a more experienced player that warps like a bee on crack over and over again. I would also suggest that good players teach the news ones how to play, even as frustrating as it is, it will encourage them to want to play the game more.

My 2 cents

I know that I'll be running training squads for newcomers, and I hope others will do so as well.

I know most people won't be able to restrain their kill whoring habbits, but this really is a good idea. Being new to Planetside has always been hard, but I dare say it'll be the hardest it will ever get when PS1 goes F2P. At the very least we should try not to spawn camp AMSes or OS them every time one deploys and not spend too much time in Reavers. The players are the game's life line, and the more miserable we make the game for new comers, the weaker our life line becomes. I encourage everyone to at least try to incorporate new players to their groups and be helpful to them.

With the free 6mo I was constantly spamming global telling newbies and oldies to ask me any questions they have, and I plan to continue when it goes f2p.

Nothing more welcoming to a newcomer than a helpful community

I shall pass on my ancient tradition of sacrificing a Prowler to the Blood God before every continental conquest. Not terribly easy to do with no TR around, the Blood God doesn't like Magriders as much...

No. This is nonsense.

I sort of understand where this is comming from, but no. Just...no. Care-Bears make crybabies.

Outfits from each faction could/do handle this with varying degrees of success. I'm all for being as welcoming as possible here, but come on...

Re: PS going FTP


PS1 is probably run from SOE's HQ on their fibre optic line. They will keep it open because it is a advertising investment/platform that they can then keep the PS2 haters (Hello btw) informed of future products.

I don't care why they bring the server up, so long as they do. I'd like them to fix any outstanding issues with the game, but i'm not expecting anything constructive on SOE's part.

For the record, PS2 isn't a bad game. It just has nothing to do with it's namesake. If i wanted to play a Battlefield clone, i'd fire up Bad Company 2 and be done with it. I played Planetside because it was a UNIQUE experience. One that SOE has basically shat all over. So you'll forgive me for being just a little bitter.

Re: PS going FTP


So looking forward to this. Gave PS2 a chance and don't care for it at all but this? I imagine it's much like Battlezone 2 with larger bases, maps and people (even if the base destruction is lacking). XD
