If you didn't play on Johari/Konreid, you're not a vet. TRUE STORY.

Re: Server Names - Back with the Old!


I honestly don't care. I love the old Markov server, but it's the game i love, and the people i play it with, not the name of the server i play it on. Hell, i went all nuts posting the thread in the main planetside forums June 24, 2003 about all the base names...

... but even i don't care that much. To the people who feel a loyalty to their faction, their outfit, and now even their server... i respect your opinion on the matter, i just have zero amount of care what the server names are.

Re: Server Names - Back with the Old!


Someone did a name research back then... ^^

Beta is round the corner and I was just thinking about servers, names and such, then this thread popped up. I'm not a PS1 vet so cant say anything about its server names, however, I remember playing Dark age of camelot in its early days on a server called Avalon. Good times. I like that name in general. Its not a biggie just a name in the end but still I place a request for a server called Avalon in the EU realm
(there's a chance a dev reads this and during the naming process Avalon might spring to mind again ^^)

does your MAX come with some sort of extra armor faceplate? didn't think so. but sounds like a possible request for a new cert.

Konried... if only.

Kicking myself, to this day, for renaming and getting rid of the -K.

Re: Server Names - Back with the Old!


Can't believe I actually read all the posts in this elitism thread .
All jokes aside, seeing as the Planetside community was (and is) a tight-knit one, I think it would be fair if there was some way for the vets to hook up with people that played on their server back in the day.

I am against using the same server names (because the new servers will probably not have that many vets). However, maybe you vets can hook up with each other on subsections of this forum (or the official PS/PS2 forum) which are named after the o-so-famous server names from back then. Maybe there already exists such sub-forums, then you can disregard this post entirely.

Oh yeah, the nostalgia...

But taking off the nostalgic glasses, I think leaving out the old server names is for the better. I don't really want all the old PS1 faces sitting on their select few servers, creating just their own little community of grumpy old men (and thinking they do things so much better than those new guys on the other, "new" servers).
Also, "Werner" was never a nice name.

On that note, I'm not too fond of all the oldies getting together on the same server (old name or not) either. There are a few Wernerite groups I'd like to play with and against again, but not all of them certainly.

Let go of the old, embrace the new.

I don't see how it could hurt, honestly. New players are unaffected, and old players get that tingly nostalgia feeling.

I dunno Rook, as an old Wernerite I'd welcome seeing a bunch of old faces. Primarily because I'm an old git now, and a Werner server would draw a lot of old faces whom I'd feel more at home with. And not because I know every Werner player personally, but because I know they are likely to be of a 'certain' maturity. I have this fear that if I join some random server that VOIP will be smothered with teen and pre-teen F2Players that will get on my nerves and I won't identify with.

Not that I have anything against teenagers, I was one myself, I hope they have as much juvenile fun as I did when I was that age, I just don't need to relive it at this stage.

So I guess the point I'm making is if I'm on a renewed Werner server there's a higher likelihood that I'll find old gits like myself and vice versa.

I do understand your fears about PS Veteran elitism and condescension but that will be resolved pretty fast I reckon, when it's apparent that this is a whole new game, in fact I reckon BF3/BC2 clans will feel right at home and embarrass a few veteran outfits pretty swiftly, hopefully that will kill any of that pointless veteran posturing pretty quick.

I reckon the most relevant experience veteran outfits can bring is showing the way with regard to managing very very large groups of FPS players in big exercises and events.

Re: Server Names - Back with the Old!


I'd like the old names back just so my outfit would be to agree on which server to play. There's also fair bit of nostalgia involved and being able to play with all the friends and foes you've made from the old server. It's nice to have heads to herd all the vets too as well. Everyone seems to really fear all the old "bitter" vets from the first game...Why not give them their own server and steer clear of them if you're so afraid of their elitism?



That probably came off really elitist...Oh well.

Re: Server Names - Back with the Old!


Old server names would be a huge mistake. Last thing PS2 needs is the "good server" nonsense where all the "good" outfits go. Every mmo has this problem and in every MMO the result is the same. The server gets slammed, has horrific queues, and most of the "good" outfits move to other servers because they dont want to sit in 3 hour queues every day. SWTOR has been one of the few to foresee this (though cool-named servers in beta were plagued by it), and for the most part avoid the problem.

It'd be cool to play back on Emerald however I don't really see it being relevant.
