Yeah Voyager i was jumping around like crazy reading it, i NEED my PlanetSide NOW!!!!


Oh and i hope they tweak the BEPs a bit :

PSU-Hamma: With a 20 battle rank you can have 2/3's of all certs
PSU-Hamma: some certs require you to have others as well

SO|Azhreal: and how long would it take to get to 20?
PSC|Zero_One: How long do you think?
PSU-Hamma: They estimate 3 months, but wont know till people start playing
Let's say they underestimate by 2 months, that still means that after 5 months you're character is already maxed out, that seems way too short IMO. I think it should take at least 6 months to max out and even at max certs 2/3s seems like a lot. Oh well, guess i'll just have to wait and trust the Dev team.

oh i agree with you dio.

i dunno 2/3 is pretty much. I pretty much like a lot of specialisation, it promotes teamplay and you have much less "rambos" around thinking they can take out evrything themselves (well its a "worse case scenario" example but you know what i meen).

I like it more when you _have_ to rely on your teammates and the same for your teammates needing to rely on you. ex: fly in my trannie and get shot at pretty bad, needing repairs. Would suck if i just jump out, use my repair gun, repair and get back on my way. Better to say "I NEED A FIX" and find some guy to repair you. promotes general teamplay.

What was your favorite aspect of what you saw or played?
The vastness of it all was the most amazing aspect.

What role was the most fun for you?
I always love piloting in games, I found it the funnest. But driving is also fun no matter what the vehicle was.

What does the cockpit of the reaver/mosquito/galaxy look like?
In the build I played, you did not see it. Only the rotary chaingun was visible on the Mosquito from internal view.

Describe the MAX suit which everyone has been wondering about.
Tomorrows dev interview will clear up most of it. Ill answer after that

And finally: HOW THE HELL DID YOU PLAY EARLY?!
afex answered.

Any info on what defense will be like?
there were mines, turrets, sensors.. but no sandbags. There are also remote detonation bombs available. More info on this soon hehe.

What can you tell us about the Cert system? Is there a heirarchy or some kind of prerequisite system? How many certs did you see? Did you get to look at the advancement process?
This should be covered in the dev interview.

Was there a HUD? (galaxy)
what kind of hud do you mean.. there was some flight info

Can you go back and forth between pilot and 3rd person view?
yes

Can you still see the HUD in 3rd person?
didnt notice, I dont belive so

Did you try a gunner spots?
no

Is it really slow as well as lumbering on turns?
its cumbersome to fly yes, as any large transport should be

Does it fly similarly to the Havoc from t2?
I dont want to compare to that thing hehe

How steeply can it climb during forward flight?
didnt try

Can people really jump out in midflight without damage?
I did not try. I forgot

What about vehicles and MAXes in the bay?
What about them?


I'm interested in the grass cover and shrubbery (herring anyone)?
It is amazing looking

Did it extend to a realistic range or appear out of nowhere ala Asherons Call 2?
it was a realistic range.. nothing "appeared" right in front of me that I noticed.

So did you get to see the mobile command vehicle?
yes its cool

What can you tell us about warpgates (if you even got to use them)
they are huge hehe

Did you use a max, and would you say they are balanced?
I used one for a short time they are very combersome to operate but I can already see some people who will be l33t in them hehe, and yes they are balanced.

How was indoor combat?
Well I only got into a couple firefights inside, I dont want to go into detail because I dont think I experienced it enough.

Damn im very interrested in super specific details about the FM?
If i was to compare it would be to T2, but its not too similar. I dont want to answer this too much other than saying it was fun hehe

yeah what was the speed comparison to the mosquito/reaver? like shrike compared to bomber in T2?
I suppose.. more agile than the t2 bomber i would say

2/3s seems like a lot. Oh well, guess i'll just have to wait and trust the Dev team
Ive heard allot of concern about this, but we were givin full battle rank and I still had to ask "hey do you have this cert.. there is vehicle x over here that we should steal" so its not that big of a deal in my experience. I still think that focusing on specific things is the best way to go. Some certs require others or u cannot have them

I am going to stop answering direct questions (especially large lists) just because they spawn more questions and controversy., I will answer in the same way I always have from now on

My article upcoming this week is going to describe my entire mission and what I experienced.

....after they were losing so badly the devs had to give them aimbots and imortality. No, wait. They still didn't win.

Dont forget: Click here for EVIL!
