What tribe are you guys using?

Also, Trail did I hear you correctly, that you feel Planetside is better than any Battlefield game you have played, or do you consider them to be in different categories?

Vanu on crux. The purple guys. The game has issues right now with the latest patch but they are working on it. And I think the flying in this is better then battlefield. It just takes time to get your air vehicle tricked out the way you want. My gunship is pretty much done weapon wise.

Vanu is the faction/tribe and Crux is the server name. You have to pick the same server and faction if you want to play on the same side for now.

Ive had a few minor issues with the update, but still having fun. I cant say its better than any battlefield game ive played. But the element of a larger world, bigger squads, as many vehicles as you like with out having to worry about a random taking it are all superior than battlefield to me. You can say its in a different class than bf4. Just like how i think cod is diff than bf4. if you like vehicle gameplay, especially flying, i have more fun in ps2. Bf3 is probably my all time fav battlefield. I think most of that is directly related to everyone we played with though. I dint like any bf games without having friends on.

I would recommend you wait until Dash or I are playing. This will save you from a little frustration adapting to the learning curve. It is pretty overwhelming at first and you dont get any tutorials. I should be on this evening, for a couple of hours. Maybe around 430ish central time.

Lazy has to log back on to at least make us an awesome logo to go with the name. I havent checked out what tools are available to design logos but i have seen a decent variety so far.

Had fun playing planetside with Hapi and Trail tearing up the bad guys flying around. This game is fun when you build up your levels and unlock the vehicles. Come fly with me in my flying tank. I let little fighters run into me and die lol.

Yeah PS2 was way, way more fun gunning for Dash in that huge flying destroyer thing. It's like the AC130, but maneuverable, repairable, faster rate of fire. Trail was spotting people from the tail gun, Dash was flying, and I was raining death from above with a semi-automatic cannon. I think I got 20K XP in half an hour.

What we need is a few more guys, flying around in another one of those ships, and a couple more in smaller ships to fend off any air attacks. That would be fun. Leave the infantry ground game to those who like to die a lot.

You guys sold PS2 pretty well. Its OK but way to much to learn and even when you find action it never last long. It seems like the Vanu is always wiping out everyone.

I too was confused on the action, but I played when I was extremely tired and couldn't wrap my head around why I only saw 6 enemy infantry in 40 minutes. Coming from BF it would definitely make me want to only grab an aircraft to move around/fight.

The biggest thing is server selection. We all started characters on the crux server. The genudine server has a larger population and more evenly dispersed faction population. The battles are way more intense and ive been in battles where all three factions are fighting at the same time. I made a character in the genudine server since it shown a higher population. Its definitley more chaotic than crux. It would be nice if you could pick any server with your main character. Unfortunately your character is tied to a server. I think on pc you can choose but not sure.
I think both games have their pros and cons. Ultimately ill play what everyone else does, since thats the most fun part. But ive been having more fun on ps2 than bf4 lately. Between ps2, bf4, and rocket league; ill be good until star wars...if we dont have a crazy rubberband issues when it launches *fingers crossed*

There is a lot more fighting going on in Genudine server. Trail and I both have Terran Republic characters there. I thought about also making a New Conglomerate character also. The problem with crux is the server is unbalanced. The vast majority of people are Vanu. Until they merge servers and balance the factions there isn't going to be as much fighting as a balanced server. On genudine I was in a fight the other day for 2 hours over 1 zone. We were fighting one faction and suddenly the other faction showed up and all three factions were fighting in the same zone. I know there is a lot to learn from the game but I think it's worth it especially when it's free.

Sorry Dash I tried.

The game does have to be sold, because if you just go in without direction you'll get lost and die (prob from boredom). Takes some learning before you can spawn into action and flank enemies positions. Once you're in, you can milk it for days because there's no kill cam to give away your position. Good times. A fun thing to do is camp an enemy's Sunderer. But whatever you do, don't be the fun police and blow it up! Just keep farming kills at a safe distance as endless squads will keep pouring out. 200+ kill streaks are not unheard of.

Yep i agree its not easy to pick up. They dont have a good tutorial to show you the interface and what to do. The most difficult is figuring out where to go to fight. Once you get there its pretty similar to bf. Capture the points and kill people. The infantry classes are similar to bf also.
I could see it being really fun with a group of us, i always hated trying to all get on the same side on bf4. It would be nice if bf4 would keep party members on the same team. Also sucks having to wait for the transport chopper and then hope that no blueberries spawn in it. Then hope that a solo player with the super lock on rocket launcher doesnt shoot you down. I always liked the idea of spawning your own vehicles and not having to rely on waiting for a spawn or that a blueberry is wasting a valuable asset. Kinda like when a dumb blueberry takes the transport chopper and immediately runs it into a tree and kills everyone...those people suck and i have never done that
