Does anyone even know who this guy is? He must play bad stuff like CoD, TF2, and BF cause I've never heard of him

Hadn't heard of him till about 20mins ago when the news article appeared.

http://www.whisenhunt.tv/

Probably the most topical thing we would be looking for.

Re: Jimmy Whisenhunt Joins PlanetSide 2 Team


I love PS2 and the dev team...but...

Seriously? You are going to bring in competitive CS players? Counter Strike plays NOTHING like Planetside 1 or 2. You at least could of brought in the top tier Battlefield players or something.

Or, you know, hire on some well known PS community members...

I rarely complain, this is a time I am doing so.

Its good to get an outside perspective of the game.

Not a huge CS fan, but its fine by me to have more people looking at the game.

$$ may also have a lot to do with who is hired and who isnt.
Could have been the cheapest of the bunch.

And if more useless CS players means more targets then thats ok by me.
Bet the forum mods had no say in it tho. :P

Hoping he doesn't try to turn it into an e-sport, still can't see that working.

Honestly this is a very strange hire to me.

I guess its another one of those things to try and get non PlanetSide players into the game.

CS is the most played FPS in the history of ever. It's significant.

Given that game development is such an iterative process, you NEED a diverse team with experience in numerous facets of the genre.

I don't know that Planetside 2 will provide a good format for an e-sport given the nature of the game, but having competitive-quality gameplay - that is, having extremely high quality moment-to-moment gameplay, weapon feel and balance, and team play - will only make the game that much better.

This is only a good thing, I think.
