Planetside Universe should -->


PSU , upon release I think it would be a good idea to have like a armory section, so players can lookup other players abilities, BR, CR etc. I know I would be interested in finding out other peoples skill trees, stats, etc. Would something like that be possible with PS2?

They said they want almost all data available outside of the game to the players, so maybe?

I don't really see a point though.

Well we know such statistics will be available, for stat signatures and Planetsidestats equivalents, but whether PSU has such a thing will depend on how easy it is to code and whether anyone will want to do so, I imagine.

I'm all for stats. Shlong waving and bragging rights are good for FPS games. I'm relatively certain the game will include stats and leaderboard considering they're going to be able to compile every single weapon's stats in the game down the number of shots fired.

I respectfully disagree with your opinion.

And how does shlong waving and bragging NOT benefit a competitive FPS game?

Of course. How could I forget that the purpose of a skill based shooter is to implement skill equalizing factors and put everyone on the same competitive level. I see the light now and it is glorious.

Anywho - I think stats and all are a great idea, and see no reason why PSU shouldn't reserve "planetsidestats2.com," but I am no businessman nor schlong waver myself

From the Planetside fanfaire Q&A...

"On external access to data
Most data will be accessible from outside so webapps can b built on top of the game. Services such as signature generators and statistic pages could be built around the data feeds."

http://www.planetside-universe.com/p...2011-qa-70.htm

I think it's safe to say we'll have all of that crap.

I would totally put a "shots fired by my faction" ticker in my sig.

If SOE publishes an API, there may be simple and fully supported functionality for anything from sigs to outfit killboards. With the post-launch emphasis on things like outfit controlled bases, being able to show that you're the big dogs is already present in game. No reason to not extend that to the social sphere as well.

I would also really like to see a database where you can look up what specific players are speccing in. If not an all-encompassing database, then I'd at least like the ability to send a link to my own skill tree to friends. Something similar to Wowhead's talent calculator:
