Re: Why I quit PS1


ive tea bagged so many fools crouched behind a tree with their cud out and killed them, seems like a counter to me.

the CR system having no form of required maintainence (you dont have to stay on say the top 10 for the leaderboards or whatever) is what's broken, EMP/OS is only somewhat overbearing considdering it runs off it's own resources (meaning you dont lose an implant slot or cert points for it) but other than that the idea is fine, learn to play.

Now, the real problem, these super steroid flying mike tyson reavers got way overbuffed.

I remember getting killed by one after making 2 direct unguided hits and one camera splash hit using a deci. He was getting hit by a cerb I put down when I saw him coming too so he had like a sliver of health left when he got me. while I was respawning he said he was impressed and noted that if it were pre buff I would have won.

Speaking as someone who 'earned' CR5pam the hard way, I wouldn't miss the OS leaving us for good.

Too many VS maxes, too many Scat maxes, too much thumper and plasma spam and too many noobs camping the spawns. I have never heard an OS, which you can easily out run and has a huge timer, being called over powered before. I suppose the MCG is over powered next and heaven forbid anyone who actually hits their Lasher orbs

5 storm troopers spawn in behind them. OH yeah that would look so cool.
You do realize the stormies were under direct orders to let them go right? They could of done just that. Learn 2 cannon.

All CUD abilities are I-win buttons, including the OS.

And no, flails don't require any such thing, it takes a minute to get it deployed and setup a waypoint and a few test shots to get it lined up, and once you get going, you can tape the mouse button down and go make a sandwich (something I did once, came back to 20 kills from vpad camping). It's an I win button.
You can also drive a tank up to an enemy vpad and camp it, tape mouse button down.

CUD = I-win button
Tanks = Not an I-win button

I myself have 5 CR5's, 4 of which are NC. So in the event that I really, really, don't like a particular AA max sitting on a ridge, I can just OS him over and over and over.
Apparently that was the "endgame" of PS1, grind more CR5's. It's why I didn't participate in the "endgame" and unsubbed after about 6 months, wasn't interested.

Use your hearing, and surge = counter. Very simple. Perhaps you should attempt to use my advice and see for yourself
Cool story brah but dying to an OS isn't the problem, and I never said it was. I'm talking about all CUD abilities including the EMP blast and reveal enemies.

Mostly OS's are used as a tactical strike, to take out an ams for instance.
Sure we can all sit around and push buttons, you know like how the PS2 beta video shows testers spawning planes by using beta commands; hit a button spawn a plane. An enemy 100 feet off can see you hitting your spawn plane button, and they can hit their OS button and destroy that plane. Then you can hit your Spawn Plane button again, and the enemy can hit their OS button again. How exciting, I'm sure it sounds exciting to you. It would be all "tactical" and stuff.

Use of the word 'endgame' in a thread about a FPS makes any of your arguments against Planetside null and void.

Anything that involves leveling up has an "endgame".
