I like how he said it as if it wasn't an announcement and as if it was unimportant. lol... I am totally going to be playing PS1 instead of PS2.

Sometime fairly soon is promising! Can't wait. I think PS2 has pushed a lot of minds back to PS1. Amazing

Personally, I'd love for them to reduce the BR again so we can't have counters to everything on the battlefield.

I rekon shove everyone up to:

BR40. CR stays as they are
Rabbit ball events - Possibly the loss of tech event which was the best thing to fight for!
Old oshur events or bring back as well
Keep on top of hackers

And if its Free just about everyone will go back to it within the first few days/weeks then the die hards will live it on!

Re: Ps 1 going free to play


When everyone is made BR 40, what will SOE use to make money on PS1?

Adding pink camouflage designs for sale won't work, because that would require additional work for the PS 1 dev team.

I guess it would be more like the Planetside Reserves, play for free to a certain BR, requiring subscription beyond that BR.

Exactly. And is it really going to be F2P? Meaning they are going to add cash shop? How will that work? Or are we talking something like a trial account that's just limited in BR?

The state PS2 currently is in, I would defiantly play PS1 again if there were people to play with and there isn't blatant exploit hacking going on.

I don't think PS1 has had a dev team for a long time rofl. With that said, monetization does concern me a bit. They can't easily change somethings in game and make a "cash shop" or some other system because I'm not sure anyone there knows the code anymore.

My main concern is still population and hackers though.

@bullet

I was thinking the same, while typing that sentence^^

I doubt they are able to make any major changes to the game to the game, so that leaves us with small things like Planetside Reserves.

Maybe Exp-"Potions" or something like that, but definitely nothing more spectacular.

Roll back the Battle Rank to 25 and have the same moderators that will oversee PS2 on hand to deal with the hackers. A few short appeals will highlight such cretins.
