Re: PS going FTP


Well, thats it then, on April 2nd PS1 will finally die.

Seriously guys, think for a sec, how can this turn out?

a: Nobody plays it. Unlikley.
b: People play it. Numbers dont actually matter here. the issue is a different one: With no entry barrier, theres absolutly zero to stop cheaters. Theres no Anti Cheat, no GMs, no dev support, nothing. It wont take long till the asshats of our community show up with their cheats and wipe away all fun. And they would come along every single time you guys try to get some pop going in PS1.



But theres still time.

I suggest the following: Some of you, the clever ones, gather up, send a mail to smed (one, dont spam him!), try to get some of your guys kick/ban powers, or at least some of the PS2 GMs to also take care of PS1 Cheaters (Skype does wonders ).

You absolutly need someone to take care of hackers, or you wont even be able to hide in an Interlink from all the flying, instagibbing scatmaxes.

My mail came from SOE... not sure anyone on PSU would not have gotten it.

No I mean like a week before it goes free, everyone shoudl be blast emailed (by both PSU and SOE) to ensure the greatest number of people know about it.

This is great news. I fear for the hackers though. Would be nice if SOE would trust some of the vets to police the server.

A boy can dream....

Here's the link to this website where you can download PS1: https://www.soe.com/getthegame/

PS1 is at the very bottom, of course. Be sure to spread the word and get as many people back as we can. This thread as 200+ views as of right now. If we could get even that amount of people back in the game I'd be thrilled.

Re: PS going FTP


The thing I love about this the most, is that every few months or after each year, I can go to a big forum, and put the download link to Planetside 1 up, and randomly get 100 more people playing, rather then get 1 or 2 guys who make a trial account. Now it will be 20-50 guys downloading it to give it a shot. Then as the weeks go on, if the thread gets bumped, another 20-50 guys, or more. Maybe they will put up a little side website for Planetside 1 at the very least to tell of achievements/merits and leaderboards for each week/year or all time kill/xp leaderboard continued after a certain date, April 2, 2014 might be a good idea to start the new kill leaderboard. We could have our overall kill count there, and the new kill leaderboard kill count added from April 2, 2014 onward, we start off at 0 kills on that leaderboard, this way we can have a kill/xp/basehacks/outfit points leaderboard from a certain date onward.

Kill Leaderboard (April 2, 2014 onward) - 0 Kills onward
Experience Points Leaderboard (April 2, 2014 onward) - 0 xp onward
Outfit Points Leaderboard (April 2, 2014 onward) - 0 outfit points onward

We have our kill count/xp count totals on the side of our stats sheet, or something like that.

Re: PS going FTP


I'm just wondering if it is free-to-play, only if you are a subscriber. Or for everyone, sub or not. It says "everyone" in the FAQ there. I'm just questioning it because the question is being asked on a posting about subscription benefits.

Given the timeframe involved, I suspect they are working out a way to make money from it. So I would presume that F2P means F2P and not P2P.

Re: PS going FTP


I got nostalgic and re-subbed a couple of weeks ago. I'll send you (planetsidefan) a PM with my steam account name so that we can get organized.

Edit: Something strange is going on with the PM system, just add BeatCrazed on steam
