Core Combat Worth Getting?


My planetside game has been sitting around collecting dust because I had low ram. But I just got 512MB more so I'm re-installing the game. I was wondering:
1) Is core combat worth getting?
2) If I pay to play planetside for say... a month and I get Core combat within that month, Will I be able to play core combat without paying extra money? Or will I have to pay to play the two seperately?

Core Combat doesn't add to the subscription fee. Buy it once, and never pay for it again.

As far as value goes...ehh, it's up to you. I played through the CC beta, and even preordered it and got it at release. To tell you the truth though, I've been in the caverns once since the release. Played with the vehicles a little and weapons a little, but I havn't really found them to be amazingly useful to my playstyle.

None of my characters pack HA so that cuts the Malestrom out. The radiator just doesn't pack enough wallop to make it worth carrying, which is disappointing because it owned during beta. The spiker is actually a really good weapon, but unfortunately I seem to kill myself just as often as I kill the enemy.

The flail was/is very effective...as long as you've got a good spotter. If ya don't, you will kill just as many friendlies as you do enemies. The switchblade is really fun to drive, but your a sitting duck once you deploy. The router is a great vehicle in the right circumstances, unfortunately, those are few and far between.

The best thing about CC is the module benefits the bases recieve. Nice thing here is that everyone benefits, not just those owning CC.

Which has more players? CC or Reg planetside?
I dont know much about this expansion..
Does it have all the old features + new ones?
Im guessing it doesnt because if it did then it would probably have subscription fees too?
So its a F2P game??

I would buy it after we see what the server merge does for caverns.

CC is just an add-on ontop of the exsisting PlanetSide world. It adds additional underground caverns to fight in, and access to the new vehicles and weapons. You will be able to see (and die) to the new stuff, you just won't be able to use it. But, as I said before, you will be able to benefit from the new facility benefits.

I agree....its not viable right now because you can't use anything from it hardly at all due to low population and thus no desire to go into the caverns. but come more people....more cavern fun....

Yup. I may even get around to getting it with the mergers.

The mergers is going to bring an entire new dynamic to the game.

To be honest, if I knew then what I know now I would rather drink a bucket of sick that buy CC.

Save your cash up and get another stick of 512 when you can.
