Nice bundle... the heroic boost itself is worth the price.

Re: One-year anniversary bundle


I just want to know one thing:

If I buy the Bundle, with my TR character, does all characters receive all weapons?
It is like they will receive it, empire golden rocket launchers to everyone, but I am not sure!
Also, boosters were something global, but they changed it, now boosters I got with my TR character are no use to my other characters, so...
If i buy the 1 year bundle, all my characters and new ones will receive the heroic boost? Like alpha squad?
And like I said, it really looks like a second alpha squad to the game, some weapons, a 6 months boosters, 1 bundle of camo and 1 bundle of decal, I think it is just missing a LMG that was replaced with the ESRL and the title. For the same price. (you would also receive 4.000 SC with the pack...)
I will wait more 2 days and hope for a SC deal, any SC deal will do! Even 10% off! I am almost paying full price for it!

It will be the same deal as Alpha squad I assume.

However, this time the bundle is not really catering loyal players, which is a shame. Loyal players have most of the weapons already unlocked but are not discounted for this, which makes this a though deal for them.

This bundle should be offered without the weapons as well and available at least until the next double/tripple SC sales.

IIRC the Alpha Squad boost was 50% resource and XP, just like this one. The main difference is that I doubt that each new character you create gets one (a boost) unlike the alpha squad deal.

Re: One year Anniversary News, Stream and Bundle!


Well, the page where I made the purchase made no mention of the fact that the Heroic Boost was only for XP.
The picture clearly shows XP and Resources.
Whats the story SOE?

Re: One year Anniversary News, Stream and Bundle!


When that Heroic Boost was available back in March, it was 50% for both XP and Resources. When they re-offered it again a few months later, it was just for XP. Its been just for XP every time its been made available since. Its not quite as valuable as the original version, which is probably why they're making the whole bundle 4k instead of 5k just for the boost.

I bought the original boost and it definitely was a help to resource gain, I spammed tank mines and C4 all over the place without a care, and I have to hold myself back a little now that its gone. But the other problem with that boost is that you can't time it for just when you're playing. At 5000 SC, I calculated that the 50% 7-day boost is a better deal if you bought a bunch of them at half-off, unless you play practically every single day. At 3999 SC for the boost and all the other stuff (the camo is nice and dark, I took a good hard look at some people wearing it today, looks like some RL camos for once) is a pretty good deal.

Unfortunately I have less than 1000 SC left and I refuse to buy more until its a Triple Station Cash deal. I already have my gift cards purchased (Gamestop deal) too, but I'd rather wait than spend them now just for this bundle. I really don't need another XP boost, rather have resources if anything. $10 for a 1500SC card, then tripled, trumps everything, if I don't use it for Planetside 2, I'll save it for EQ Next.

Hmmm... Five days to make my mind up. I have all the weapons mentioned, at least for my faction (I only play as NC out of principle LOL). So I'd just be getting it for the boost and the camo and I may not play enough to justify the boost......

Excellent bundle. I will buy it since PS2 is the only game I play nowdays I never ever before used Resources boost. Now I often find myself run out of mines. Not anymore I guess for the next 6 months

Beware, NC soldier from Russia is coming with mines on battle field.

Even if you own a few of the weapons, it can still be worthwhile if you add it all up. Depends if you play other factions too, ofc.

The timing isn't good for me with Christmas around the corner, but I'm still considering it.

Does anyone have any pics for the camo?
