I think we all need to stop bitching about balance issues and be happy that we have a game to play =). (this coming from an NC, so ehhh)

EA is worse. Motor City online was a great game, and they had to go shut it down so the devs can help the sims online.... morons.

Misc Info


the game is awsome, STFU.

Well realy i think it could have been better but it has been the only game i have bought for a year, and i've played it countless hours, it gets an A++ in my book. And the only day i will give up my subscription is if the game shuts down or i run out of all my money.

Sounds like somebody is a little sore over something. Appears to be pretty baseless.

Well there are problems, but i don;t think its a failure.

The one thing that really annoys me is bad framerate. Just by fixing that can make this games alot more enjoyable.

I dont think any game that is still around after a year can be considered a failure. I'd like to know exactly why he thinks of PS as a failure, and why he bothered posting it on a website that contains some of the most die-hard fans of the game, and a lot of them.

Hmm... I dont think he is coming back. Maybe you guys scared him off b/c this isnt like the OF where every troll arounds jumps in with support comments like "yea!!~! SOE is garbage" and "y0u Sux0Rz"

Im with the rest of you guys here, I think that any game that has been around over a year and still continues to come out great new developments (re: Battle Islands) is ok in my books.

As to the begining of this conversation. SOE has always been known for exptecting their games to work themselves out. Except maybe when Everquest was first created.

Well that thread was a resounding success.

Nobody really agrees that it is a failure so crawl back under your rock and boomer yourself.

Ok whoever stated that I was sore over something was very correct. I had grown tired of strikers locking on to my max (VS) and 3 hits killing me. And I had grown tired of the auto reload on my starfire dropping the lock before my missiles could hit.

Now what 90% of you have been asking for: Why this game is a failure.

My first point was SOE and thier non-scheleant attitude twords thier customers. That is pretty self-expanitory they just dont care and were supposed to accept that. EG. my br 15 cr 2 VS guy was "deleted" and when I asked them why they said they would look into it. I spen 3 weeks playing all the empires until I emailed them again and recieved a dismissive response. I decided that I would just use maxes to build up a new char.

Now onto why this game is a failure. Its BOREING. The only conts that are interesting are imposiible without a vehicle. The largest problem is the stamp bases. I know that if every base was different people wouldnt know where they were going but to err on the side of ignorance RUINES gameplay because it gets boring. Next they attempted to add some type of "RPG" element to the game. The only reasoning I can think of is that they needed a way for people not to quit after their first month free. AV's inbalance to vehicles and max units. Yes the armor class is changing but after the one year mark? wow that type of look the other way mentality is reason alone for me to leave and lastly the fact that besides the massiveness of planetside the game is largely unoriginal. Tribes + Biowasteland = PS on crack. Furthermore the total lack of stratagy required. The fact that weather is implimented yet has no effect on anything because 99% of the players have it off, same with flora.

I realize now that this thread is largly unproductive. As I highly doubt I will change anyones mind in a fansites forum. Nor was that the intention. I apologize for wasting everyones time.
