Keep the Duck Walk


You know what I mean

That sweet sense of celebration that overwhelms you after a successful base capture. You feel the urge to crouch, look all the way up, pull out that knife, and Conga Line all over the base.

If you're reading this, Higby, please confirm that this will be in PS2. It wouldn't be Planetside without it.

They don't seem to keen on keeping PS1 features that "slow down combat" so I wouldn't hold your breathe.

Conga lines probably "slow down combat". No fun on their watch.

Yeah conga lines was the bomb.

I have fond memories of waiting for hacks to go through when we had conga lines with 25-30 people in them.

Talking Re: Keep the Duck Walk


I have fond memories of the conga line back in the day. It would be inevitable that there would be a long line of players in the CY who would be OS'd by the enemy or a friendly player.

Also, dont forget about the cabbagepatch....

Conga lines were never the same after the devs nerfed the VS glow stick as they couldn't manage to make the glow switch off when the player cloaked.

You mad? You so mad!

Celebration will come with fireing our AK equivelents into the air while the commander stands on a balacony shouting "GaddafiVS has fallen! Your forces have evoprated! Indar is FREE! FREE! Republic is Great!"

Agreed. Full speed crouch walking is going to be the new dolphin dive. If you aren't crab scuttling (ADAD crouch strafing!), you're just another free kill.

It worked for TF2.

Hahah, nice post.

+1 duck walk in PS2. Higby! At very least, you'll have to spend a couple of nights closer to release all passing around a bong, playing the original PS and coming up with some ridiculous emotes and references to funny shit from the original game.

Hell, if i could pass smoke pot while playing PS and claim it on tax, i would definitely put aside some time for that.

Doesn't matter if it's in. We'll find new things like it in PS2 that the devs never intended. Spontaneity is part of the joy of the game.

I loved the conga lines as much as everyone else. I'm sure there will be an equivalent in PS2.

There will always be some kind of celebration to be had after finally taking a base following an extended battle.

However, I was never a fan of taking a base, having the enemy leave the continent. Then being forced to sit in place for 15 minutes waiting for the hack.
