What's your role going to be?


So what is your role going to be in Planetside?
I think I'm going for the full on Galaxy pilot. I loved filling that role in the original game. I'd love to pimp out the Galaxy with Dragonwolf graphics on the nose, much like the Flying Tigers did to their Warhawks.
The exhiliration of taking off just before an OS hits still sits in my brain as a great moment. Sure the loitering could get boring, but it's a role that needs to be filled sometimes.

But should a Galaxy pilot not be needed for a mission, then I'll go back to the full-on support role I loved as well. Advanced Medic, Engineer and Advanced Hacker. Blow the door, heal the outfit and fix their broken stuff. All the while pressing forward to obliterate the enemy.

What about you?

What about we first learn what we can do, before we decide? :P

I'm fairly certain I'll just run around as a grunt as I always did in the original PS. Outdoor MA fights were always my favorite and I'd love to have a pimped out Pulsar and destroy people. I'm really interested to see the kind of things you can increase in the talent tree system with your weapons/vehicles. Hopefully it doesn't give a veteran player too much of an advantage.


Destroying noobs is always great fun, but I don't want to deter people away from the game because I weapon stats are vastly superior to their default weapon.

Speculation my friend.

I always play Medic in most every game I play. It's a fun play style to me.

IN SWG, I went Combat Medic. In EQ2 I was a Warden Druid, in WoW I played Resto Shaman.

I'm hoping they expand a lot more on support roles in PS2, and make the class trees very detailed so they can be super fun.

I think Adv Med was the only cert I always had.

OP's post made me think about how one has to specialize in flying to use a mosquito. So... Galaxy pilots will be useful once again as we won't be having mossie hot-dropping outfits/players anymore

I hope you're gonna roll TR. We need some gal pilots for our alliance plans.


As for me, I'll be filling the leadership/commander role. Gotta keep my guys buffed and in line.

Probably sniper and leadership, though I've always loved mobility so those jump packs are looking mighty tempting.

I have yet to break my record for keeping a tank alive... think I gotten to seven and a half hours. So, I'll probably be doing more of that.

Re: What's your role going to be?


Combat Demolitions. I love Medium Assault (the Pulsar, in my case) and LOTS of combat engineering. Bombs are my favorite. If the Talent Trees allow me to JUST focus on different kinds of explosives (anti-armor, anti-personnel, proximity, remote-detonated, etc) I will just become a MASTER of the Pulsar and of tactical explosives (none of that damn "hand grenade" nonsense). I wouldn't turn my nose up at sentry guns or other combat engineering toys, such as sensors and stealth-field generators, but if I could JUST play as an advanced combat demolitions commando, I will

I took pride in my Lib bomber skills so... medium assault and agile... with hacking... cant forget that. I always had the full hack.
