Re: Jimmy Whisenhunt Joins PlanetSide 2 Team


Just because his background is esports doesn't mean he only knows 1 game and 1 game mechanic. I know the circles he traveled in, I was in the same circles, and he has experience in what keeps games fun and competitive. A competitive game doesn't mean its an Esports game or geared that way. A that is competitive is a game that has lasting appeal. I'm hoping this may lead to a better/similar meta game system that was in PS1 with bases and the lattice work.

I doubt he has even played Quake
Hi!

I did play Quake III competitively but ended up sticking with CS over the years, I still play quake live to this day.

I played TFC before steam was released also, TF2 is just goofy fun with friends of mine that play it quite a bit.

Feel free to listen to my podcasts that include my feelings about FPS gamestyles and models =D

I might have to do a PlanetSide AMA on reddit to go through a lot of these questions and stuff.

Wow man. Do a little light reading and watch his videos. He actually talks against dumbing down games.

Choosing CS over Quake/TFC is worse than not playing Quake/TFC at all. Now I'm even more concerned.

Devs responding.
While a game is in development.
A new dev responding.

I am amazed.

Tell me, wisenhunt / maybe even higby, did you guys play Tribes at all? I played that game competitively for a few, and the team dynamics of generator-flag-base could have an impact here...

edit: I mean Tribes 1 and Tribes 2, not T:V or T:A

Welcome to the forums whisenhunt!
Thanks! Excited to see passion in the community, I hope in the next weeks to get more out concerning what I do and my feelings on game mechanics =)

We have a lot in common (myself and this community) it seems when it comes down to game play decisions and passion.

PS: The reason I started my podcasts and shows is to promote change against the watered down systems we have in most modern day FPS.

Good to hear many of us are very concerned about that topic as well.

As long as the spirit of the original game isn't lost along the way then I will have no complaints.
