Question squad play is it true!


hey people wats up! i was wondering if planetside was living up to the name man, i all hear is "we got a base stolen by a solo hacker.", or " man a MAX came out of no where and blew me away." so well gusy is it team play or not!!! cuz if it ain't i ain't going to play i'll stay wih ghost recon i dn't wanna play as a solo medic out in the middle of nowhere trying to find a decent squad, i knwo you can jus hook one up but i guess when you play enough battle field 1942 "you get a company sized force idea in your head" cuz look at that game it took plenty of men just to get a bunker! but here 1 guy can virtuly own a continent, it seems to me that it's stealth warz and not team play. but go abotu your lives meh meh meh meh

I havent been playing alot, but my experience so far is that the servers are kinda empty...

I played today with 1000 ppl on a server, and i seriously didnt see much action... i went from base to base with my squad, and hacked a few of em...
Npbody came to protect it anyway...

But i guess that it will be better if there is 10000 ppl on the server...

My main concern is to many bases, the fightings spread way to thin, either remove some of the bases or make it a matrix where you have to take certain things.

Now I am usually the last person on the planet to mock people for bad spelling or grammar, but come on, I counted 26 errors.

I do not speak AOL very well, but I think you are asking if teamplay is working well.

It works well when you are with a group of people that you know and want to work with. There are always going to be people like you that never listen to the commander and are impossible to work with.

I always go to the action hot spots. I can usually find a group that I can join.

Solo Hackers get pwnt by an organized squad. Solo MAXes get pwnz4rt by an organized squad. Solo anything gets qwntizzed by an organized squad. You can play this game solo, but you will either have to join a zerg rush or try to find someplace with no/little resistance.

I usually play with 4-6 regulars (depending on who is on from our outfit) and we generally invite people we find along the way to fill out our ranks. A lot of friendly solo players will show up once you start banging in a facillity because people without squads like to use the Instant Action feature which keys on hot spots. In this way, it is easy to pick up new squad members in the middle of a battle.

There is no effing way that 1 guy can own a continent.

thats why they made this game, it is supposed to have team play and to me team play makes it 1000000 times better then solo... cause when you got that many ppl and you can form squads and stuff like that that is what makes it cool.

Bah-

If you aren't in a squad, you're not going to get shit done. I've yet to see a hacker all by himself just hack a base. You do realize that you can send people off on their own ahead of you to hack a tower so you can have place to respawn. Sure you get a some noobs running around not in a squad, but if you're in a squad that noob only lasts a second. People bitch because they suck or are stupid.

As far as battle sizes - I've been involved with over 150 people. Once release comes along and platoons are integrated the battle sizes will double.

Does PS make it a cooperative squad atmosphere? Sure. It does a terrific job of it. It gives players the tools to operate in a functioning squad with good tactics, but it remains up to the players themselves whether they make use of such tools.

Like all other multiplayer games, you will find people that fit the broad range of descriptions: from solo maverick types all the way to highly organized and disciplined squads and outfits. I've been in pickup squads that were disorganized and where no one talked to one another. It seemed all they wanted was BP, plain and simple. I'm in an outfit now that is team oriented and utilizes strong squad level tactics.

The bottom line is, if you want good squad play, get in with others that think the same way and stick with them. PS is much more fun when you are in a good squad.

Almost every night i get in huge heated battles of 20-40 people. Get a squad, get a galaxy (optional) and fly around to a hot area and drop in and join the slaughter fest.

I have phantom hacked a few bases, just to see how it was done. Not really that much fun. The real fun comes in the heated battles.

I don't understand how people say this game is empty. Hit the instant action (works randomly now... but they say they are working on it) or look on your map and find a base near the boundry of two factions.

Empty?! When and where are these people playing?

I can't swing a dead Vanu around without hitting one of my own Terrans when I'm on. There are times when I cannot even see a base on my mini map through all the friendly blue dots and vehicle icons laid atop of it...
