Alliance Feature


I would like SOE to consider adding in some sort of multi-outfit Alliance organization features in game. Sort of like the a Platoon feature for squads but at the Outfit level.

This Alliance feature would allow leadership in each outfit to merge into an Alliance and see where the other members of the Alliance are on the map and coordinate better.

Suggest feature list:

- Map markers to request air/armor/infantry
- Map markers to flag enemy locations (air/armor/infantry)
- Alliance way points for each outfit. (Perhaps with outfit logo on the map)
- Alliance voice chat (only leadership levels of each outfit would have access)

I know likely some of these feature are coming down the pipes for high level commanders. However given the large gap between smaller outfits and large outfits in the games current state. I think for the sake of keeping the smaller groups happy this would be a great addition to the game. Even if it costs a little station cash to purchase on day one.

Excellent idea! This could be organized informally however.

Can anyone else confirm this?

Nevertheless, Alliance features a must ingame.

This. Alliances are as much Planetside as Outfits, and adding a bit of functionality to the whole thing would be an excellent improvement over the first Planetside.

Re: Alliance Feature


I had an idea about creating a joint strike force made up of multiple outfits. Including a command structure for the outfit leaders would be incredible.

In that September 25th video at 27:27.

Higby's answer word for word from the video:

"We actually have kind of plans to do a lot of additional stuff with outfits including outfit alliances, but most of those things are going to be post-launch. We have some really good outfit enhancements that we're going to be putting in, but yeah, post-launch for most of those. "

I don't recall this being confirmed at all - but I'd love to see it. I know they have talked about it.
