A zerg in planetside is something every other outfit does except for the one you are in. The one you belong to uses a tactical numerical advantage to complete the objective.

I did not assert anything contrary to this. An outfit does not necessarily equal a well organized group.

Re: Zerg - And what that means?


Zerging is when a "large amount of units" (anything much bigger then the opponents team) charges in blindly with out use of cover or tactical ideas. There is no copoeration between each other and always follow the leader for example watch from 1:40 and watch as they build up and follow TB as he kills anything in his way. That is an example of zerging. If 1 person is defending a position and is killed by having 3 guys go into a room and 2 die well 1 lives that is NOT zerging. Being over whelmed by a bigger party is not zerging. There needs to be no cooperation in the party and mindless running from point to point.

Re: Zerg - And what that means?


lol at all the Zerg definitions. I'll give you a example of a PS1 Zerg. Its when you have Organized and Unorganized Outfits, so called eleet types, with Solo non experienced players, and so called Squad Leaders, Platoon Leaders, Outfit Leaders, and CR5s that lead them, to attack a Capitol Building that cannot be hacked for lack of links to bring down the shields.

Thats is an example of zerglings in PS1 that historically still happens everyday in the game. Mindless, non tactical, non experienced players who do not know what the (insert expletive) they are doing. But do it cause it either seems to be the right thing to do, or because other lemmings are doing it. Kind of like the insects of the Starcraft that the term orginally came from, and is now used to describe players in many games.

Ya know this post is like the zerg too. A bunch of mindless people who came up with mindless answers, to something they could have looked up in google. lol

PS. To those of you who are not mindless, or at least think they are not disregard the last paragraph and carry on.
Very funny posts, funny read, good job. lol.

That was a general "you", not a "you" pointed at you or your outfit. Try not to take the game so seriously. And you know very well, the zerg will win, after all the organized outfit are dust, the zerg remains.

See "Zerg Outfits" are people that don't have tactical cooperation with each other (no mic, no chat) they just follow each other like ducks in a row and go were ever the wind takes them. They have high death ratio and don't use cover pretty much at all. That is what I define a zerg as.

Re: Zerg - And what that means?


A zerg is something that people who shouldnt be playing MMO's say when people playing a MMO, actually play a MMO.

Apparently there is a fine line between hey this is great look at all the people fighting and "this zergfest sucks".

Re: Zerg - And what that means?


Honestly, from what I've seen, the "Zerg" is just an overused terminology, so much so that there is no single set answer.

On a side note, I wholly promote zerging, at least in the sense of attacking with large, unorganized force. I mean, how else am I going to rack up BEP fast lol? Besides, dropping gens in the middle of some base no one can capture in order to cut off supply lines (a.k.a. black ops missions) may help the zerg win, but it isn't really all that rewarding (BEP or CEP wise), not to mention incredibly boring while waiting for somone to actually show up and give you a challenge.

So, yeah, bring on the zerging - I always did love a good target rich environment.
