Sometimes I'm glad I'm TR.

ROFL @ Vanu.

This reminds me of the acting in the original Command & Conquer series.

Facepalm but at least it's publicity.

1. An event, especially a confrontation, that forces an issue to a conclusion.
Cool - perma death for one of the factions(!)

At least they speak your language ? Would you feel more involved or even be exposed to this kind of publicity if they were Chinese or spoke a local dialect from somewhere else in the world ?


It's good to criticize but it's also good to appreciate what you have in common (or not) and what is attributable to our funneled perception of a universe much larger than us.

IMO, good for them if the initiative works. If it does not, at least they tried. And if it's stupid, they will not be the first nor be the last. And if it turns out better than we imagine, good for those involved.

Wow, that's more geeky than even I'm used too.

But I gotta say, being lead by Tobuscus seems like fun, even if he's the weirdest of them all. I wish TB luck, I respect him and his viewpoints on games, thanks to him I'm on Planetside 2 in the first place. As for the NC guy, sorry to say I never heard of him, but I'll wish him luck too

This sounds like a lot of fun though, and gives three guys a big reason to self inflate their own egos. Just hope the servers can manage, should this get a lot of support.

Re: Ultimate Empire Showdown


It'd be really cool if the event was based on which of the three guys can cont-lock each continent the fastest - ie, who is the leader who can garner the most support and wield it effectively.

Would show off quite a few of the unique aspects of planetside if they did it that way.

Faction balance first before promotions.

Gameplay balance first before promotions.

They may lure in alot of new players but all these imbalances will simply enfuriate them.

Faction balance - Overpowered Vanu camps Esamir so they can spam overpowered Magriders. NC and TR leaves for Indar. whoever is losing that fight goes to Amerish. So you got a 3 different faction concentrated on 3 different continents. Then, all 3 factions will switch continents for easy capping on empty bases, rinse and repeat.

Gameplay balance - Air units need to be nerfed or be more expensive. I've never used air units before because I prefer infantry, but these units get too much kills and advantage.

Small/Medium base spawn rooms needs retooling to allow infantry to get out and not get farmed by air or mechanized units as soon as they step out. Give them 3 double-width doors. Open up the roof with shields so players shoot the hoovering aircraft right above the room while their nose is pointing just outside the door.

They can grab all the players they can with these promos but they will simply leave once they realise the game balance is out of whack.
