A MAX suit is not a vehicle. It's classified as armour. Hence the term "SUIT".

Re: Do you want more common pool or more empire specific stuff?


We're forgetting that the description is not official. The 11 vehicles?

ES Buggies: 3
ES Tanks : 3
AMS
ATV
Mossie
Reaver
Galaxy

And the only guess is the ATV. We're still missing a lot of old PS1 vehicles there. Still room for MAX suits. They may come from equipment terminals, but I still have to fight them with heavy ordinance like any other vehicle Realistically, I expect them to be classified as weapons instead however.

Re: Do you want more common pool or more empire specific stuff?


Lot of people are gona cry unbalanced but i vote for empire specific


Ya it sucks when I rolfpwn by jackhammer or mowed down by a full crew prowler. It sucks deal with it. I'll just enjoy the little fact my MAX hops over the wall shooting everyone below me.



Each Empire will have its strengths and weakness's in all fields. As long as one doesn't dominatly own in more ways than the others I'm fine with little unbalances here and there as long as each is equal in their own ways

I like the idea of empire-specific skills for common-pool weaponary. I like the idea of empire-specific skins for identical vehicles and weapons (i.e. the hoverbike for VS, ATV for NC and something TR-like for TR), and I like the idea of more empire-specific equipment (ESHA/ESAV).

Empire specific reavers, snipers and lightnings? Yes please.

Matt mentioned Liberator in one of his posts here, and i have to think that there is also a Deli. Lodestars function can/should be an AMS variant.

I don't mind the empires has similar equipment with differing pros and cons.

I do mind when the equipment has wildly differing capabilities.

In other words, I'd prefer balance like the MA weapons were, not the AV weapons. Small differences for flavor, not wildly different capabilities like protoss/zerg/terran.

I want more Empire Specific things, just no Raider type things where you need 5 people to make it not blow.

I would definetely like more ES vehicles, but I'm quite certain that it brings hardships in terms of balancing.

AGAIN. MAX Suits are classified as armour, just like Agile and Rexo and Standard and Infil suits.

I'm pretty sure the ESMBTs and ESBuggies count as 2, not 6.

Poaching weapons off the enemy, and hacking their vehicles is not only fun - it's REALISTIC. It's LAME if SOE chooses NOT to put this in right from the start.

IF the new Gameplay & environment are INCREDIBLE....then I will allow SOE permission to add weapon poaching and vehicle hacking back in 3 to 6 months after PS2 is rocking.

*Whoosh* Reading comprehension fail.

And I know there would be more than the vehicles I mentioned (get the joke now?) I was going by the "pre-order" description of the game Which was a really low estimate on their part.

You have to look at it from an advertising perspective, not the perspective we see. Bigger numbers = bigger eyeballs.
