    Remember how "OP" Light Assaults were because going by their K:D ratio, they'd usually have 5 or 6 : 1?
    People thought it was because we had overpowered weapons or that tac nuke of a C4 charge. (That did help when you went on suicide runs against AMS Sunderers)

    No no, it was actually because 'No one looked up.'

    Do you mean cheats or something? Planetside has never had official AI enemies.

    Just got back into this after a buddy mentioned it. I live for Liberator gunnery, it's just so hard to come by when I'm not playing with him.

    Still a good game. Pity we cannot potentially one shot ESF's with decimators anymore.

    Oshur [new continent] is coming next year i.e content that matters.

    Also apparently a fourth faction for premium members that looks like it lets them sub into whatever faction they want as mercenary robots???

    Oh so a way to always be on the winning faction if you're a sub, cool cool

    they've pitched it as something that'll help even out population, by funnelling people toward the lowest-population faction (i.e. wait in queue... or spawn as a robot!)

    but who knows

    If you're fighting for TR you're always on the winning side!

    Anyone who says otherwise is a seditionist and should be reported to your local HR Rep for reeducation.

    You're already at the head of the queue as a subscriber, there's no point at which they'll choose to be the underdog unless there's an area where they can benefit from purely having more targets to farm.

    What I saw said you can only go to the lowest pop faction as robots.

    Its been a while since I've played planetside, but this might be the way forward for the franchise.
    250 v 250 gives the large scale combat that the mmofps gave, but there can be more focus on objectives or setting up a plot of land to be attacked in a different way instead of the 'optimal' way on the world map.

    edit** really really hope I can still be light assualt and fly around.
    edit** edit** also, i could see getting more variety. matches are set up as TR v NC or TR v Vanu or Vanu v NC. You are not beholden to a faction because you are barred from joining another side or because you didn't go deep into the certifications for weapons.

    Hey, anyone from COA willing to log on and bump me up (DerFleeb) so I can add people? I've been playing with my wife and kid and I'd like to get them in the group just for fun. Last I looked it'd been months since any other COA person had logged on.

  • FleebFleeb has all of the fleeb juice Registered User regular
    So they updated the game to DX11! It's pretty nice! They're still working out a few bugs but overall it's pretty great, runs very smoothly even in big fights and looks great. There's been a good uptick in population so fights are easy to find. Ya'll should hop on!

    There's some bugs still from the latest update aka infiltrators were made invisible on low graphics settings now a fix has made them the opposite. Oops.

    Still highly playable [play it], it might be wise to ignore infiltrators for anything minus sniping, recon, hacking and laying mines until a fix is done. Thumper grenade launcher on test server, nice model, will get.

    I patched it up and played a bit the other day just to see; the DX11 update does seem to make things run a lot more smoothly

    however, I still ultimately concluded I was kinda bored with the whole affair ><

    It's still great to play, but unfortunately for me the local Aussie server is dead and latency on NA servers just makes everything ever so slightly "off" to the point of not being as much fun as it used to be. :(

  • RoeRoe Farming Greater Rifts Registered User regular
    I'm glad they updated the graphics. I really hope they optimize the game engine so I can get more frames while playing though.

    Did you try SolTech server? Its a Japanese server.

    Yeah I thought something was up when I noticed a lot of PS2 videos popping up in my YouTube feed.

    Color me intrigued. I know Daybreak broke up in to three separate studios to take care of their three main IPs. They certainly seem to be off to a decent start at any rate. I love PS2, but there are certainly long standing issues that need resolving. So I hope the PS2 team has the resources and leeway to actually make some solid changes.

    Yup, I'm cautiously optimistic. Seems like after the crash and burn of Arena they learned their lesson in what a unique (and potentially profitable) IP they have in PS2. So far the group that's taken it over does seem engaged and interested in actually improving the game and giving people a reason to play. So, fingers crossed.

    I started playing this again after getting fed up with the latest Battlefield. I have to say the game is fun and looks reasonably good for its age.

    Man I haven't seen this many people playing in years, it's fantastic. Bastion fights are fun as hell too.

    Proven wrong yet again. But Im playing it again. Nice to see Recusion got stomped.



  • RanlinRanlin Oh gosh Registered User regular
    I've been playing again recently too.

    The Outfit War things seem to be causing some pretty lame actions, to maximize ownership of zones, but I mostly just bounce around as a merc anyway so the greatly increased playerbase is nice.

    It uh, is pretty disappointing to encounter bugs that I see people complaining about like 5-6 years ago still though.
