Re: Planetside 2 ruined Battlefield


Welcome to the cult, gentlemen. You'll get your secret decoder ring in the mail next week.

I finally relented and logged in last night. Yeah, it's still Indarside. No, there's no real victory to be gained. Yes, the spawn system is still fubar (I can't spawn at the base right behind me, but I *can* spawn at the base behind *it*. Please). Yes, it's still difficult to get where you want without suicide-spawning seven times or grabbing a Mossy and flying there, and that is going to be the biggest and most off-putting thing to a new player.

But it was still epic, and I still had fun. Saw iMartyr running around, too.

I'd say PS2 has 2-up'd on battlefield, ps1 was there long ago and yep ps1 ruined me for any other fps since 2004 when Ilogged in and saw a mass of mossies flying overhead from a friendly base to another on a raid and then a short while later I saw the same mass, considerably reduced and trailing smoke, on the return trip for repairs and rearm.

Re: Planetside 2 ruined Battlefield


Well done guys - an (almost) completely positive thread! Makes a nice change - more good vibes about the game are needed, even with all the things that need improving. The complaints sometimes drown out the fact that lots are still playing and having fun.

(Yes, I came out of lurk to post this )

Re: Planetside 2 ruined Battlefield


DICE is just becoming lazy and thinking they can put anything out (like COD) the bro-gamers will be compelled to play it just because it exists. I hope both those franchises get burned a new one this go round and start upping their game. The gaming world needs a shot or two of originality.

CoD 2+ ruined Battlefield 3 and 4, PlanetSide, Splinter Cell Blacklist Versus, Crysis 2 and 3, Counter-Strike Global Offensive, aswell as Company Of Heroes 2 (RTS here, note please) for everyone.

Did PlanetSide 2 ruin BF4 for me? No, of course it didn't. How can two identical games be one better than the other? (And this is not even negativism here, PS2 has "numbers", BF4 has "victories", other than that the only thing different is the commander mode in the latter)

The persistent world spoiled me from the start and I haven't been able to play much of anything, but Planetside, since it's release. RPGs were the same way ever since Morrowind. I feel so disconnected and trapped in a game with rounds or levels.

There's nothing quite like it.

Re: Planetside 2 ruined Battlefield


Having played BF4 on a friends account I must say Planetside 2 has pretty awesome netcode considering the scale of things.
I still very much enjoy map based FPS games (BC2, BF3 until suppression patch, RO2, CS:GO, ArmA, etc) but what's really putting me off from the mainstream shooters is how with each release they're getting more dumbed down and filled with more and more no-skill crutches...

There's no plethora of ezmode crutches and gimmicks (except for lockons) most other modern shooters seem to be focusing on. Just pure all out warfare. It's one of the reasons I really enjoy PS2, it's relatively barebone and raw. The game's pretty much a spiritual successor to classic Battlefield (RIP 1942 - 2142).

But seeing Planetside 2, an MMO with hundreds of players clashing together having better netcode than one of the mainstream FPS giants. What the fuck went wrong DICE?

As a bonus, here's a gem from an BF4 interview.

Both games just seem shallow to me now. I am at a loss of what I should be playing as I can't muster the will to play PS2 unless its an op night.

I do not plan to buy BF4 as I read it is same old BF3 with some tweaks. Will stick to PS2 as a casual weekend player. Another reason is that I have Radeon 5870 that handles PS2 perfect at high resolution but not enough for BF4 and I do not want to waste money on new videocard while I can play excellent PS2 with that old but powerful card.

Can't blame a company for sticking to what it does best, the free market gets to decide what lives and dies... Then again, we have to contend with publishers only focusing on what they think consumers want.

Anywho. I've always preferred more free roamy games. I might play BF4 at some point, but I probably won't as I don't really see the point in me investing time into two FPS games that aren't really all that different when it comes to gunplay. I would rather invest any spare time into something like Star Citizen... Oh, yes...
