Live Demo at E3


TB makes reference to the live demo with hundreds of players at E3.

Is hundreds enough? I'm just afraid someone may think this is just MAG with a sci fi skin.


thoughts?

Note: My last thread was closed due to the fact that there was a thread called Air Combat video - internal beta server. which had nothing to do with the live demo at E3.

There is another thread where TB is showing the GAL, but again, no one is discussing the Live demo at E3.

This thread is to discuss the live demo at E3.

yea hundreds they can show the scale of a battle for sure. not the overall war on a cont though which would be amazing to see from a admin cam perspective.

They may limit the play space to a couple bases in order for those "hundreds" to really appear like how the actual game will on release.

You can't field 100's of fighting players in mag.

And yes it's enough in the right terrain.

My best guess is they will show off the mission system and create a mission that brings these 100's of players to one single objective truly showing how epic the battles can be.

obviously they're keeping this internal and not inviting anyone outside except the 12 seats at E3.

If they could let released the build it would have been awesome to have thousands online for this.

One developer had mentioned spawning in a camera in the heyday and watching SG (Sturm on Emerald) unfold operations and I'm paraphrasing when I say it was awesome to witness.

It would have been cool to have 10 or so of the old large outfits get the build and go at it for 2 hours during the event. While I know for security they would have never allowed it, but they could pretty much blow away the competition with a demonstration like that and come away with Best at E3.

I doubt there has even been a playtest with "hundreds" of players yet. So prepping for E3 will likely be the biggest stress test the servers have had sofar. And from what TB said, I'm thinking 100+ players at the E3 demo rather than "hundreds".

But regardless, cram 100+ people into an outpost or base battle... it'll look pretty damn impressive.

They will be confined to a specific mission area during the Demo (ie a few hex's not referring to mission system). There will be players at E3 and play testers from SOE at all of their offices.

You'd be surprised. 50 people is a lot when you put them in one place so 100s should be fine for demonstration purposes, it might not get as insane but it should appear like a bigger battle than most people have seen before.

Get you and your inside info Hamma, what aren't you telling us?

Did you walk through a door marked 'TOP SECRET BETA ROOM' by 'accident', when you were there?

Spill the beans Sir. I am not above tickling you.

What they need for that E3 demo is 100 or so good ole Planetside Veterans to show the world how this baby is played. Heart and all.

MAG is nothing compared to planetside. They sacrificed polycounts and textures just to allow the sheer scale of players, and even then they didn't use it.

Most of the fighting was done in small squad-vs-squad warfare. Sure, there were alot of squads, but the fighting in a particular area never went above 16v16.
