Re: Planetside 2 Needs Prone


I'm neutral to prone.

While it's not needed, i can't see why the option of laying down on the ground makes such a huge debate in the community. It's not about realism, come on!

Re: Planetside 2 Needs Prone


BFBC2 worked far better than BF3 with no prone because it keeps the pace of the fight up and snipers balanced and not annoying. As soon as you give people prone, then you give them a chance to camp and it isn't fun for anybody and doesn't help the team.

This. Its a camping tool and I don't agree it's needed at all.

hahaha soo melodramatic. "If this game isn't MIND BLOWING I'm walking. That's it guys. I'm out!"

You must be crossing your fingers your gaming career doesn't abrupty end in a few months.

Re: Planetside 2 Needs Prone




Again, I could care less about prone being in this game (it's already being omitted), but it seems most people are blowing the issue way out of proportion. Adding prone most likely will not ruin an entire game. Additionally, I am sure excessive camping will not even be an issue in this game. Those who camp will most likely be left behind while everyone else works on the objective, that is just how this sort of game works. Also, camping is a legitimate tactic while defending (people will still camp with crouch, they will just camp in a different manner. People will adjust). Prone has been in games for a long time now. Adding prone does not make a game "cookie cutter" or a copy. Even if prone was included, restrictions will be placed on it as there have been restrictions on jumping in many games to prevent bunny hopping.

Anyhow, I am just repeating myself (and so is everyone else), but I really feel that these arguments have little basis and are mostly assumptions.

Re: Planetside 2 Needs Prone


I don't really see a need for prone, just make crouched as accurate. The only additional thing it does is hide your silhouette and if you're wanting stealth gameplay take an infil or attack at night.

In a game where we have cloakers and such prone will just slow the pace way, way down. It also leads to all sorts of problems like dolphin diving if its not done very, very well. Going prone also massively favors defenders, defenders already have battlements and bases so I think adding another huge advantage will just slow the pace down far too much.

Re: Planetside 2 Needs Prone


With the layout of the bases, and terrain, and gameplay mechanics... prone will not be needed.

This isn't a game where you have 32 players per side, with maybe an aircraft or two from the enemy shooting at you, and one/two tanks at a time...

We're going to have scores of tanks, squadrons of aircraft, and armies of hundreds shooting at you.

Prone, if anything, will only be silly as everyone will enter the base, fall on their face, and clog up the halls for their team mates.

I can barely thing of ANY time where prone would have been useful in Planetside 1, and where it won't get you or your team mates killed in Planetside 2.

Re: Planetside 2 Needs Prone


For me I'm in the middle. I don't mind it being put in as long as it doesnt take a rediculous amount of the devs time and it has restrictions on what classes/weapons you can go prone with ( aka no maxes going prone ).

Although I have a feeling the amount of time it would take to implement it wouldnt be short.

LOL, it's fun, but prone is probably the only thing I'm absolutely against. Even concidering that sniping is all I usually do in most games.
