PlanetSide has never been realistic. I don't know where you got that idea.

Realism? Is that what you think Planetside vets are after?

Re: Planetside 2 Needs Prone


Okay, but these need to be put in too:

-Damage taken while prone is doubled.

-Because of the extreme surface contact with the ground, infiltrators can only get to about 50% stealth maximum, even with no weapon drawn.

-Unable to use AV weapons.

-Unable to throw grenades more than 15 meters.

-Able to be trampled by friendlies and enemies, causing damage and inflicting grief on any trampling friendlies.

-Takes 1 second to get to crouching from prone. Certs can reduce that to half a second.

See post below. I rest my case.

Don't forget a 10% chance of getting dirt in your gun and having it jam. We're going for realism, right?

Yay for another feature that isn't need

/sarcasm

Prone never works proper in any game, and tends to lead to similar frustrations as bunnyhopping does.

In a game with this scale I feel like more things could go wrong than right if prone was added. The last thing I want is to see hundreds of people laying down in a base fight cluttering up the place.

Planetside is about mobility and logistics, too much so for prone really. Prone would be used to just ambush people in defenses and make it much less balanced.

But it's up for debate, the Devs might make it work, who knows.

Hmmm. I have to disagree. My favourite role in BF3 was the support role. A large portion of the class was based around prone and deploying the bipod. This lead to other mechanics like the suppression features etc... For me, this was my favourite experience of the game. Deploying an MG and laying cover for my fellow soldiers. I have to disagree on your blanket statement.

Is it right for PS2? Hmmm. Many of you seem to disagree and yes, I acknowledge that it would probably promote camping. Bear in mind though that a lot of this game is about point defence and digging in, so allowing players to go prone doesn't seem like it would change much.

Re: Planetside 2 Needs Prone


I also don't really see where prone is necessary. But I don't quite understand why it's so terrible either. People are going to camp prone or not the only difference is once they prone they cant really move so it's easier for another sniper to take them out.

The only valid argument against prone I see is to stop run and dive play, thats just horrible lame.

Either way, to me I'd probably rather see it out just because of my own tastes but it wouldn't break Planetside if it was there, honestly.

Re: Planetside 2 Needs Prone


Camping is a legitimate tactic, and to support the removal of a feature based on discouraging legitimate gameplay or the inclusion of features that artificially render a legitimate gameplay tactic pointless is the same as forcing others to play the way YOU like.

People who hate camping want you to duel them on the main street at high noon. That's not what a wargame is all about.

Hell no. Cloaking snipers with prone? And 200+meter tall cliffs to hide on? Worse than BF3's campers...
