Talking Greetings Planetside Universe!

Hello all! I'm Asceye (pronounced A-Se-Yeh) and I'm new to Planetside 2!

A little bit about my gaming history. Been playing games since I was a kid. From Famicom games (battlecity, bomberman, mario, etc), to most recent (and sometimes random) games but mainly in the FPS genre (COD4, L4D2, BF3, etc) and even a bit of Minecraft here and there. My play style is a part casual gaming (playing for fun on my free time) and part tactical-team based gaming (assuming the opportunity arises).

I've wanted to play Planetside 1 since 2003, unfortunately at that time, I lacked the bare minimum required PC Specs and Net. A couple of years later, I got a decent PC and Net, but at that time, no one was playing it anymore (afaik). A delight for me to find out that PS2 is in development and I've been following it ever since!

Stoked to play the game! I just have 2 things left to consider before I do:

Which Faction to Join

From what I've read so far:
TR = Fast Rate of Fire but Less Damage, Fast Vehicle Top Speed, Light Armor
NC = Slow Rate of Fire but Heavy Hitting, Slow Vehicles, Heavy Armor
VS = Laserbased (I assume no bullet drop?), Agile Vertical / Horizontal Movement for Vehicles, Average Armor

Currently I'm leaning towards TR, ROF wise but VS seems interesting as well, vehicle wise. Undecided! Help?

I'm from South East Asia, so a server where I can have a playable ping is a big issue for me. I'm not sure if there's any servers where I have a good enough ping. Hopefully there is! I hope?

I'm New!
Undecided what faction to join!
Dunno if there are servers for players in Asia!

That is all! See you guys!

Never had many issues playing PS1 on the US servers from the Oceanic region.
I'm sure PS2 will be a big improvement and if not, they are going to have a server based in AU.
