  • Outfits will be on ranked ladders within the game.
  • There will be separate competition areas that are built similarly to existing bases for familiarity.
  • Weapons will be restricted to guarantee balance during the fights.
  • Working directly with MLG to develop the competition areas.
  • Live MLG Show starting on Sunday the 31st.

From 31st March onwards?! I wonder if the instanced maps be ready for this date or just the 'in-game' ladder functionality?

Exciting stuff!

Wonder if the eSports side of things will just be handled by spectating, will they have small enough team fights to allow for teams to be physically present at MLG events?
Only news I'm surprised about, in a good way, is that they will restrict weapon choices. Also I Wonder what they will have ready by the 31st.

I'm disappointed stuff like this is a focus when Planetside should be focused on massive combat. I left Battlefield 3 for a reason.

I like this, honestly. This game is really fun in the platoon vs platoon combat.

TEST will probably be fielding a team

The focus remains to be Massive battles.

THe whole esport thing happens partially in the massive battles as well! Outfits can only get higher on the leaderboard by playing the massive battles.

Only then they can go up against other outfits in the instanced part. And only if SOE lets them. No way for anyone to go into the instances by themself.

It will still be massive, well that might depend on whether or not they want smaller teams to compete physically. The addition of a competitive stage doesn't mean that the focus has shifted away from how Planetside 2 plays on a day-to-day basis. This will be an addition, not a replacement.

When your primary part of the game is playing in the equivilent of instanced arenas, you relinquish your right to have an opinion on anything on the main game.
