My SOE Visit


I recently got to take a trip out to SOE to get an exclusive look at planetside during its Internal beta phase, and let me tell you. It was all its cracked up to be and more imho. I will be writing a full article on what i did, and what i thought but its gonna take me a few days. In the mean time, I can now answer many questions with some experience now, so dont be afraid to ask

Questions... questions...

Will weather have an effect on combat?
Are there any vehicles we don't know about yet?

Um... I'm really striving here, way to put me on the spot!

Who was the most fun to play with?
Did you play with each faction?
Any lag?

Can I be you?

I am amazed at how lucky you are.
Was this your surprise?

Yes this is the surprise.

1. Weather was not in PS at the time.
2. Did you play with each faction? - no i played on the TR team
3. Any lag? - was almost non existant - but it was a company network
4. I dont have any screens yet.
5. I didnt see any unknown vehicles

Don't forget this is a beta - I'm sure there are many optimizations still to be done. If lag is not too bad on a beta with 100 people, I'd translate that to pretty darn good!

The servers were half way across the country. I should restate that.. There was no major noticable lag.

Talking


Oh.
Then "not too bad" is excellent!
Thank you for clarifying.
I hope you had a good trip.

Guys,

Go read the C&C Generals Beta Forum (its open now btw to read, but not post so I can say this) the game LAGS, its not optimized in the least, and this is a 3,500 man Beta... not still internal. One of the Devs made a great point, Beta = Game not Optimized, relese means game optimized.

Basically, there is a ton of polish still needed, that poilish translates to optimized code, be it net code, or the raw system coding. You see this in CCG. The game swaps 550 megs of files... instead of using RAM worth a crap. Why? Degugging and otehr issues.

So whatever "lag" Hamma saw, is raw coding, debugging or such going on, and IMHO not indicitve in the least of what the final product will look like.

Was there anything about the game that was very suprising, that you did not expect at all?
Or are you not allowed to say
