Re: No No NO PLEASE GOD NO


I have to agree with some of the others in this thread, you're all just a bunch of whining babies.

Like I said before, the mechs don't have to be gundams. They could be like the mechs from battlefield 2142. Were those mechs tougher than a tank? Yeah but they weren't impossible to kill. A couple missiles or pilum rounds to the butt and they went down.

If it was 400 vehicle resources and had only 50% more health and firepower than a tank, it would be scary but far from the state of the BFRs in planetside 1.

There is no reason BFRs can't be in the game apart from the bitching and moaning of PS1 vets. And hell, I played PS1 too and thought BFRs were cool rather than "OMG OP."

Originally BFRs were OP. They took a hell of a nerf however. The nerfed BFRs were then way UP for many. A few pilots still managed them very effectively, they just became much harder to use. (Which is understandable)

It wasn't uncommon for people with gold ammo to get right under a BFR and start unloading into it point blank into the shield gen. Someone could easily solo a BFR if they were prepped for it.

How they're implemented is going to be the big question.

They had to put the BFR in. It's to build hype in the player base so they'll ask for it to be playable in the game. This way when they do put it in they'll tell all the PS1 vets that it's in too high demand to not put it in. It's all part of the evil plan.

Never experienced BFRs myself, but the concept itself does not fit in to team play.

So in short:

NO.

This was the same argument against single person air vehicles and the lightning. It didn't hold up much weight. The core argument we tend to see is worry about an overpowered vehicle being implemented in the game in any form.

The other core argument is many people find bipedal chassis unrealistic or on the extreme that it'll role overlap (people have preconceived implementations) and will be too cool that it will totally replace the lightning or other vehicles.

As most people know I hated the look of the BFRs and their general role. You aren't going to find anyone on PSU really that supported the pre or post nerf implementations or art styles.

I find it funny, BFR's before being nurfed REQUIRED small arms team play to take down.... But everyone got upset that they could not just point the largest caliber gun at them and drop them.

If it takes three guys to operate the thing then I think it could fill a void for greater teamwork in the game.

Re: No No NO PLEASE GOD NO


i love easter eggs, but did it have to be the one thing that is guaranteed to cause flamewars?

i am still sad that the cool ps1 playstyles didn´t make it into the new game (infiltrator and engineer) and then they take the one thing nobody wanted to make a return and put it in the game? that´s one evil evil easter egg!

put one of the ps1 bases into the game as an outpost please! so the vets have at least one base where they can celebrate the good old days...

Haha, awesome. Some of you guys are taking this way too seriously. This in no way means the return of BFR's, and the original designs were quite cool looking despite their OP nature.

You're VS and you liked the design? That's unsettling. I hate humanoid mechs.

Re: No No NO PLEASE GOD NO


1st of all this thread is hilarious because you guys freak out way too easy. This is just a straight rip model from ps1 into ps2 as an easter egg

2nd of all you're not supposed to even enter this building, it's completely sealed off from the outside. The people posting the pics are using a spawn room glitch to get inside the building.

3rd of all PS2 WILL NOT HAVE PS1 STYLE BFRS EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
