I think ANT drives will be the main griefers target. If we have any griefers.

I bet good money that the ANT is the free vehicle "you don't know about yet". It's unarmed and fits the description.
I believe SJ said that already.

Maybe he did, I wasn't sure that's what he was referring too but maybe. I didn't think he said so in as many words. I'd bet there's still some stuff we haven't seen.

there is no way people can dub people newbies just because they find this role interesting.
Did I say that? I believe I said it would be a good role for newbies to FPS because they aren't very good at twitch gaming. This is similar to all pilots/drivers and medics/engineers. They dont have to fight so much. That is a cool feature in the game.

And the escort is going to be having most of the 'fun' when it comes to people attacking the ANT your driving. If your in a galaxy then all you get to do is watch.

Assuming there actually are escorts. I'm willing to be that over half the time there won't be.

For half the ANT runs, probably, for half the attacks on ANT runs, unlikely. The ANTs will do lots of runs without escorts when they think they are safe, but when there is a risk they will probably have an escort or a galaxy or both. And if you dont have an escort then you will probably be screwed.

Thanks for the links Navaron and Mistled, very helpful. Didn't know they went ahead with the weather system as well, cool stuff.

Dio, I was thinking of C&C: Ren as well, I've been playing some of that online recently and harvesters are the perfect equivalent to these ANTs.

Yeah and i remember when i played the demo the harvester was a big target, if you could keep taking out their harvester the other team was pretty much screwed. So if PS is like that the ANT job will be far from a boring one.

Ok all i read was the first post and im filled with an overwhelming urge to smack someone.

First off, you get experience from doing this. When is experience a bad thing?

Secondly it would be incredibly fun to try to break a seige with a much needed supply of power.

Thirdly what do you think todays generators run on? Air? no they need gas or another form of fuel. Just becuase the society is advanced doesnt mean they have inexhuastible energy.

Fourth, since when do all people in MMO games fight? id like to point out clerics/medics, and engineers. Do they fight directly? No. Are there alot of them? YES! They help the team, they get experinence, they are needed, THEY HAVE FUN.

Fifth, this breaks the monottiny of just running around shooting. Yes this is a FPS, but that will get boring after awhile.

Ok now ill go read the rest of the topic.

I think ANTs willbe no bigger than a Lightning so they're prbably small. They can fit into a galaxy.

Great idea to make them. I thought there was going to be no way to breach defenses effectively (with boths side reviving, respawning, etc.). But know it's possible for a good old fashion medieval siege or modern blockade. No fuel in, defenses down, less enemy respawning, makes attacker and defenders equal.

Warpgate + ANT (which) = Resources (there for) = Economy

W+A=R=$ so WAR = $ That's my theory and I'm stickin' to it.

Nice of the devs to sneek that one in there.
