Re: PS 1 going free to play


PS1 wont go back the way it was even if it is F2P. Unless they give Werner back... Even then the game is just dated, the gun play is terrible and I for one haven't missed the shear number of MAXes and the ADADADAD spam, crappy hit detection and pure lag.

I loved Planetside, but there's as a point in life when you have to realize it's had its time.

I guess we'll just have to see then. I'd imagine the populations would be pretty good actually.

CS 1.6 is still going and is way more popular than CSGO (which is what I have been playing, instead of that abortion PS2). I'm gonna bathe you all in orbs when it opens

Will be back on PS1 when it opens. Hopefully, hackers will be controlled and a dev team assigned to it. If no one knows the code, they can hire me, I would learn it and work on it. Maybe reskin it with the forgelight engine.

First. They need to acknowledge that there current hacker detection system doesn't work very well.

I recorded well over a dozen hackers who all used no reload/radar hacks. I'd record them, appeal them with a link to the video, and they'd still be playing a month later. Which is why I started making them public.

Re: PS 1 going free to play


The guys they have employed to monitor PS2 should be assigned to oversee PS1. A few appeals will get their attention. Lets hope its 24/ 7 GMs

Unless the game actually turns a profit, I don't see them giving PS1 anything. It will be a hosted by them, but thats about it. I'm sure they won't compromise the success of their new hit title to work on some old game.

So basically you want the game to fail within the first week? I don't see what making everyone BR 40 brings to the game other than further ruining it. Rabbit ball events are horrible. Same with Old Oshur events since SOE can never seem to get their shit together when having one.

I'd like to just have the normal, vanilla, un-fucked-with game back, please and thank you.

Also, "fairly soon" isn't exactly the most reassuring thing to here from Smedly. God knows when it will go F2P.

Tinfoil hat conspiracy theory time. I wouldn't be surprised if PS going F2P is merely a bridge to get PS shut down. I'm sure PS has been deadweight on SOE's shoulders for awhile now and they finally need some excuse to shut it down.

They'll make the game go F2P then after a few months decide that it's not a profitable asset to have at SOE and then shut the game off since it's F2P and making no money for them. Especially after they lose a shitload of money after PS2 crashes and burns.

I've never had good experiences with Rabbit Ball. Every single time it's ended up with one empire intently playing whilst the other two goes fuck about with their own business. If all three empires all actually went after the ball it would a pretty interesting event, unfortunately that never happens.

I thought it costs next to nothing for them to run PS1 currently.

Also, I found this article yesturday. Here's an excerp from it I found interesting. So it seems they actually are going to put a cash shop in PS1, right?

FROM: Planetside 1 is going free-to-play

Concerned about the form a free-to-play Planetside might take? Don’t be. Smedley has waxed complimentary recently about the payment model of League of Legends, the MOBA with the most inoffensive and respectful free-to-play system to date.

I really don't know how a cash shop would work in PS1 and even how they'd implement it. Considering they haven't updated the game in years and whenever the idea gets presented to them they always seem to duck out of the way or make excuses that they don't have anyone that knows how to properly update it.

But knowing SOE they'll implement a cash shop that allows players to purchase BR 40 CR 5's (not that it really matters in this stage of the game).

I don't even care anymore, I just want PS1 to be decently populated again so I can forget that PS2 even exists .
