Final Pre-Launch Love!


I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you. Thank you to the Planetside 2 team for pouring yourselves into the game we have all hoped for and dreamed of, to Hamma and the rest of the PSU staff for creating the space for everyone to come together and be excited and argue, and to all of the other fans out there whether veteran or new for helping to create the community we have right now. I am proud to have helped build the foundation for the thousands, if not millions, of new Planetside 2 players to come, frag, talk, and have fun.

I cannot really express the range of emotions I have felt throughout the journey we have all been on together, from fishing for news articles on Google and giggling with excitement when I found one and got to be the first to post it here to hardcore raging when there were people that were playing the Technical test and the Beta before I was allowed in. I've been following every step of the way and putting the word out to as many people I know and many that I don't to the point where my coworkers are sick of hearing about it. I postponed my debt repayment plan so that I could build a new gaming rig that could handle a good sized battle while the game was still early on in optimization. I was depressed to learn that I would be working the night that the Beta ended and could not bear witness to the finale. I am nervous-excited for the future of this game as I have been on this ride for a long time and have seen the occasional negative omen here and there but they have all quickly been overwhelmed by the two-way communication and effective listening by the developers and SOE overall. I can tell that they truly believe in this game and love their hardcore fans and are willing to co-create the best fucking shooter EVER.

Much love from a die-hard fan.

I imagine this will be much needed. Because in 13 hours, everyone will be spewing hate when the inevitable issue arises. Good luck Dev team, may the fates keep watch over this Launch day, and may the Nerd-Raging be minimal.

Lol True

3:30 PM PST: Server queue numbers reach epic proportions.

6 PM PST: Servers coming down for emergency maintenance.

8 PM PST: Servers come back online, people log jam trying to get back on.

9 PM PST: Servers crash.

Lol, even though we all know something like this may happen, it still doesn't make it any better.

Good luck Sony, we understand, kind of, lol. Only advice I would give is to not turn on your forums until Thursday, lol.




Or, nothing will happen...

Think of how trivial all of this will become when we look back on all of this as per the Mayan calendar when the 9 gods return to earth, dec 21st, in giant city sized space vessels trans-dimensionally transferred through the suns gravity well during a rare alignment of planets and the milky way black hole...creating a focus-able lens through time and space.

Yup. For us Euros it will work pretty well, hopefully. We get to download in the evening our time, but before the US really gets going. Then overnight our time you guys turn up and highlight all the issues so that by midday Wednesday our time, the game is running beautifully and I report for duty on my half day off!

That's my plan anyway.....

Amen to that. Right in the middle of the Amsterdam Internet backbone, I feel pretty confident about a smooth launch.

It's Miller time for me at 7 pm

The Republic do not approve of feathered serpents. We can't have any retro-futuristic Vanu tendencies wrecking havoc with the established society. It's just not proper and lawful conduct. Invading semi- or quasi-reptilians will be shot at sight, and their feathers more than ruffled!

This is the dawn of the next age for sure, the dawn of the Terran Republic. Permission granted to set off one piece of government sanctioned fireworks, with a permit of course.

All power to the Overwatch!

Knowledge is power, assumption comes one step lower. From that step we have to build this tower.

P.S.

If you look at the timer on Steam, they agree quite handsomely.

Incidentally, perhaps someone from the States could explain the fascination with drinking the pigs-swill you call lager from small, often red, plastic cups? I've never understood why it's done and am vaguely curious.
