Yeah we have to wait 15min for a non-LLU hack. Yeah you have to sit through the animation for a spawning vehicle, versus running up to a pre-spawned vehicle. The trade-off is that you're not fighting against 8 other players (presuming a 16v16 is evenly balanced and full). The trade-off is that you're fighting against, potentially, hundreds of other players...
I agree with you on a lot of that stuff. I'm pretty fine with the way the game is now, and I certainly want it to remain huge, but I just feel really bad for all of those new players who were running around, asking questions, but never stayed. And I've seen tons of those guys all the time, from release up until recently. I think if everyone had stayed, there at least would have been good word-of-mouth about planetside, regardless of marketing.

I mean, I understand why in PS they want you to have a base secured for 15 mins, through a hack. I understand why they want you to only spawn within the SOI, if you hadn't binded to an adjacent base before hand. And I understand why they want you to stick together as a large team, and targets don't die quickly. but sometimes you need SOME broad appeal if a game is going to survive. It can't just be for a selective audience.

I hate this idea tbh, i love sitting in my reaver blasting stuff as a support roll, covering friendly mags, LLU's etc.


The thought of my reaver not having any rockets is just....scary.

Whats needed is a heavier restriction on this, instead of just costing 5 points(its 5 points right?) it needs 5 cert points and at least 5/10 hours of flying in the air in a galaxy, mosquito, lodestar etc.

Or u can have the reaver, but cant use the rockets untill uve certed them or achieved atleast 5 hours in the craft.

Not amount of kills but amount of time, and with time i dont mean sitting idle in sanq, the time should be only counted on a contested continent.


Thinking of this, i should of filled that in on the survey, anyone with Official forums access post this on there, i wander what people think about this

I'm fine with Agiles in a ground vehicle - I had enough room in my Humvee for my big ass plus my Kevlar armour plus my battle-rattle. I'm not fine, however, with aircraft pilots in anything but Standard - a combat aircraft cockpit doesn't have a fuckton of room for space. The fatter a bird, the bigger it shows in gunsites.

Yeah it's a game, but let's remember that they decided that Rexo was too bulky for most vehicles with an enclosed cockpit. Go one further, and make aircraft a strictly Standard experience. I think it's a fair compromise. And for all you surgile bailures out there who will undoubtedly be frothing at the mouth, take it in the ass like the rest of us.

Does anyone have any facts or proof SOE is making PS2? Is this survey the only thing we're going off of?

Currently it's the only piece of evidence we have. But the wording of it highly suggests that it is coming. The first line is "Help Us Design the Next PlanetSide Game"

But yea thats about it.

Re: [Newswire] PlanetSide 2 in the works?


yeah there is not really much to go on is there? Just the survey.

Personally I think the first Planetside had enough advertising, just not enough development.

think about it, all it took was this little survey and every game blog, news site, and FPS community lit up with the news that Planetside 2 could be in the works.

There was something about the "Planetside2.com" domain being bought by SOE too.

I tried to get more info on this e-mail and the domain but they weren't giving me anything sadly. All I got was what John Smedley said "Planetside fans will be happy We have big things planned in the next 12 months. We're working on something new that's really cool."
