We're gonna be Vanu, and I'll put the server decision up as soon as I figure it out, hopefully tomorrow right before or close to the launch at 10 AM PST! I know some people want to go join the NC SA people, so I'll try to get on a separate server just in case there's a faction change timer. I'll be giving everyone in PA invite privleges and such, so feel free to invite cool pubbies and form your own squads. This just gives us an easy way to have fallback groups and chat.

We also have the PA G&T Vent server to use! Info for that is HERE. Password should be obvious.

SERVER:Probably Waterson, US East
Platoon Leads:
SniperGuy
TogSolid (100% Squad Leader Certs)


Also, if you're playing and need to promote someone to squad leader, do these people!
SniperGuy
Taranis
TogSolid
Croc_Clock
Darmak
Retaba
Keagle
Enigma435
Carb0nFire
NBen

People that can invite:
Like, anybody.


So, if you're planning to join the GLORIOUS VANU FUTURE FOR YOU, SOUND OFF!

Remember though, we do have an actual game discussion thread. This is more for coordinating Outfit stuff and finding people to play with. Discuss how overpowered the Magrider is in the main thread!

AND REMEMBER, TECHNOLOGY EQUALS MIGHT

    Looks like the old thread go locked. I guess this is going to be the new PS2 general thread.

    I am going to stick to NC for a while, myself. I got in with Hexus' group and have really enjoyed myself.

    Vanu forever.

    Waterson server seems pretty good.

    P.S.

    I am in the West.

    Therefore a West server is probably best for me. Though I don't actually know if it's a big deal, if enough people will be on and ping isn't terrible I might go east. Or at least have a dude for with you guys.

    :(

    I doubt West to East will really be that big of a problem. I'd say start over here, and if it's a problem, you're not limited after all.

    Oh, I also plan to probably use a bit of my station cash for some squad leader upgrades to help out. Too bad I have to work tomorrow night. Should get a few hours in though, depending on how fast I can DL the game itself.

    Are they trying to ensure that their servers will take as much punishment as possible by not offering a download of the client prior to the actual launch? It seems like bad planning to do it this way

    I have no idea what they are thinking. This launch will crash and burn like craaaazy.

    I played the beta and had a good time with it. I was playing TR, but I care more about having a good group than the faction.

    But Waterson doesn't have Azure Twilight D:

    And Azure Twilight was what made Emerald VS the proest!

    Only reason I was aiming for waterson was to keep separate from the Goons for those that wanted to also play NC. I'll put the final server decision in the thread title at launch. Opinions?

    Also, outfit names?

    Hmm I was going to pick waterson to join on NC with that Thatguy, but I maybe I could join up with the goons on the other server as NC and you guys as Vanu.

    I'm so sorry @That_Guy D:

    This isn't something I'm concerned about. New outfits and organizations will spring up easily enough. And given several of us also want to do an NC guy on Waterson, unless anyone can give a super compelling reason to pit ourselves against fellow forumers and Goons, Waterson it is!

    You mostly pay for cosmetic upgrade stuff, or to unlock guns quickly rather than earning them with certs and such. So it's handy to have some station cash, but in no way necessary.

    Yeah it's mostly shortcuts and vanity stuff, no real advantages beyond that afaik

    So it's sounding like there's not going to be a big contingent of PAers on the West Coast servers? That's unfortunate.

    I wonder what my ping is to Waterson. Probably in the high 100s (wooo AT&T DSL).

    If there's a bunch of PA going Vanu on there, that's where I'll probably go.

    Yeah, my goal is to have the PA one be open and friendly enough that there's no problem playing with others and such. So hurray! FIVE MINUTES

    Try restarting Steam. That usually fixes that.

    Whelp PA outfit, I guess I'll see you at the server merge. Well, probably not because PA's game interest timeline states the guild will be dead in about a week, but still!

    I can't leave my beloved Emerald Surrogate :(

    I was getting the same, quitting steam and then starting it again fixed the problem for me.

    Restarting steam fixed the no subscription problem for me. Currently DLing at 4.6 mb/sec.

    here is a link to the direct client download if you want to not use steam and can't get on the website (due to way too many people trying to right now)

    I hate you people and your direct connections. Getting 1.3-1.5MB/s over wireless on Steam. Will set the outfit up as soon as I can get on.

    Important question, name? If no suggestions come up I may just go with [PA] and "Future Arcadia" or something.
