The Empire specific vehicles they are working on might be AA aircraft.

In my opinion guided missles are silly, it would end up like a starfire max in the sky (which is what the old sparrow was like, it takes maybe 5 hits to kill a skeeter and is very hard to take out from the air, a 1 hit aa missle would suck).

Come back and try, planetside has to much stuff to explain in text.

I agree with Vick but...if it was like the Sparrow used to be, that would be difficult, expesially(sp) if they implemented the loops and turns and such.

That would make it harder for you to accually aquire and hold the lock.

Vic, first thing you'll notice is that all the sunshine noobhammer players migrated from NC over to VS for the perceived Lasher dominance. Population for NC is comparatively low for the time being.

How can people stand constantly switching between Empires?

I love empire switching. Which probably explains why my combined battle rank amongst my top chars is somewhere around BR90.

Seriously though, I love the bandwagoners, because no matter where they go, I have a char that can soak up the easy XP from them. Sometimes, it just isn't working on one empire. Pop locks, idiot CR5s (I hear rumors that other kinds of CR5 exist....still waiting to see one of these mythical beasts ), zergs, SOE forgetting they have a game to run and running server virus scans at prime time...any number of reasons why that can happen.

Rather than go "bah, PS sucks tonight" I'll hop over to Markov and try my VS alts...if they're not working either, I come back to Emerald and try first my alt in the first empire, and failing that, switch empires. Generally speaking I'll find one character who gels...and then the experience rackups begin!

While I have six secondary characters or so...all three of my primaries date back to around release, so it's not like I float around because I want to use the "flavor of the month" weapon...I just like variety. Plus it's damn fun to track down your outfit buddies and blow them straight to hell. I actually find myself playing on the side that's got the fewest people...more targets for me.

I've been BR 20 for a long time and have been working on CR 4 constantly.

Thats prolly why I don't switch and again, i have an outfit that I lead on a regular basis.

The game is better than it was before...but if you thought it sucked then, it probably sucks now.

I still having fun, and I'm coming up on the one year anniversary come Easter...a lot of people on this board are even closer than that.

A game that can still occupy me for five or six hours per session after playing it for a year *must* be something special.

Anyone ever consider what a great value PS is? Yeah, we all like to bitch and moan about the $13 a month (or $12 in my case), but when I sit down and actually play...I'd wager that I squeeze in about 20-30 hours in a month.

12/30 = 40 cents an hour for entertainment. Compare this to a movie which is four dollars an hour, just on the ticket price. I still think wargames models are the best value, but PS isn't that bad either.

I was joking about that sucking.

What killed it for me was the lag, and the impersonal feeling.

And I don't want to hear about value. Since about 1999 I have been playing HL an CS. Have my original copy of HL that I still use. NOW That, is value.

Cept for all the twitch gamers and cheaters Granted, PS has it's share of lamers, but they're significantly fewer than in CS or HL. Plus I can't really drive a tank in HL

Desert Combat for BF1942...that is a kick ass mod. But moving along....

I'm glad I found this thread. I was thinking of coming back and giving it a whirl now that I have a better rig.

I'll probably be easy exp for someone but I've always enjoyed playing while I was in beta.
