Y'all got me curious about PlanetSide so I headed over to the Playstation forum...

I was interested til I read this:

"it is a really fun game, but you have to be prepared to spend some money, the amount of time you have to spend to get enough "money" to buy new guns, etc.. is off the charts. as far as gameplay goes it is kind of like battlefield conquest mode but on a much, much bigger scale. I got bored with it because i didn't want to spend any cash, there are so many options i didn't want to buy a gun and then not like it. I bought a scope and the after using it for a while i didn't like it..."

No thanks, I hate that pay to play BS.

I hear after you get banned, you have to buy a Wii U before you can play on a newer console.

I'm pretty sure, to get back, Spyder had to agree to purchase the XBone at launch

You don't have to pay to play, the game is free. But if you don't want to put in the time to gain xp (cert points), then you can pay money to buy points. Same as buying weapons unlocks in BF.

One of my coworkers is a Future Crew member, so I have some good info on the game and how gain cert points fast. You basically get 1 cert point for every 200 xp (one kill). My coworker says it's easy to get 500 points in a hour or 2. XP works the same in PS2 as in BF - you get xp for everything you do.

Well that's cool if it's how it works but that post I quoted made it sound like to be competitive you need the better equipment. I don't like slogging away trying to get XP with inferior stuff, all the while the shiny cool gear is sitting there mocking me, laughing.... open up your wallet you f'n miser!
post #14799 of 16243
Of course you need better equipment to be competitive - exactly the same as BF. You'll need to spend points on scopes, foregrip, heavy barrel to make the guns more effective. The difference being, you get to choose the upgrades you want rather than random unlocks based on xp.

A scope costs about 30 points, which you can get in ten minutes of playtime. Everything in the game costs between 100-1000 points.

It is very much like BF, but more sophisticated and much larger version it.

Worse to worse your out a few hours play if you don't like it. It is a free title after all. I will check it out but if its obvious pay to win I will be out.

I've seen some footage from pc players, but it didn't look to interesting to me. And the graphics looked pretty bad. Maybe they have updated it.
post #14802 of 16243
I don't think you can win - ever. The game is ongoing... so it's not like there are timed rounds and when the round is over one team wins. You just keep fighting and battling for as long as you stay online. Fight alone, or work together to take or defend bases.

You can have 12 man squads, 48 man platoons, and 1000 man Outfits.

But like you said it's free to try - and play!

Ultra settings look great, low settings look awful, and then you have everything in between.
post #14804 of 16243
To tie this back into BF I think there does need to be a BF type MMO. Been wanting something like that for a while now. You look at Destiny and Planetside and its all future spacey type stuff which is cool but I wouldn't mind seeing that concept in a WW2 or modern setting. Kind of like Risk as an FPS. Have ranks and if you get far enough along your allocating assets and picking what regions to take.
post #14805 of 16243
Yes, agreed. When we're online together we dominate, and then what??? The game is boring when we've captured all bases and trapped the other team - which happens way too often. Would be nice if the game was massive.

post #14806 of 16243
To further that thought, why not have a game mode that links maps? Dominate on one you get a bridge to the next. So you take Caspian and go to Bazaar. Some game mechanics would have to change but it could be done. Drop in/out abilities would need to be added for the casual. I could see battles lasting hours across several maps. Especially if you have a large map followed by a ground, close quarters type to clear the buildings. Maybe even a tiered approach like air superiority or tank superiority to take a large area followed by conquest to take a smaller area and close quarters to round it out.
post #14807 of 16243
Yes, that would be awesome to have hybrid games with bigger maps and more environments and objectives. Maybe we should design our own game?

Yes. A bunch of things. BF4 burnout. New TV = lots of movies with the wife. And I have being doing a lot of research lately. Once I get into it is hard to just stop.

Having said that I will be getting on shortly!

Edit- I was just getting ready to go down and play and boom...they wife says she is going down to watch tonight's dvr'd Big Brother. See...it's stuff like this.
Guess it'll be another 50 minutes.

mph - too funny. big brother is a guilty pleasure of mine and the boss.

what's the tally of players who will be playing bf4 on xbox one vs ps4?

I'd much prefer that everyone picks one console + pc:) I don't play as often as I used to, but when I do play, I'd rather play with people who are interested in working together.

Is your mic broken or do you just not use one? I don't recall hearing you talk lately.
post #14811 of 16243
It's complicated but I generally find that when I use the mic, I invite attention from a couple of munchkins. Kind of like the scene from lotr when they drop the chain down the hole and all hell breaks loose.

I'm pretty sure that since MSFT announced the XBone tits, everyone is going the XB1 route. I know I am.

PS4 is what the majority of us chose, although Lazy will say otherwise.

Man I wanted to play last night... did mph ever show up?

Yes he did, Armored Shield 24/7 FTW.


Actually I am not so sure you have the majority, it could be split with some people still up in the air.

Also I might just pull the move that MPH mentioned and play BF4 on both systems at the same time. I started to train my feet last night on how to play, I will be a pro once BF4 gets released.

Yes I did. I mainly piloted the chopper all night. I normally prefer gunning, but hard times call for hard measures.

While I was flying Trail around he got his level 100 service star!

Welcome to the club Trail!

I couldn't keep this guy out of my gunner seat, but he ended up doing really well with the TV Missile. He seemed to hit like 80% of his shots. Later he explained that he just started flying around in Attack Choppers as the gunner and using the TV Missile. http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/soldier/I%20Drop%20Campers/stats/384728883/xbox/

Him and his friends kept inviting me to their party, so once all the AVS'ers left I joined their party and played a few more games with them. The young guy seemed like an alright guy. He explained to me that he was #1 in the world with the Tank Destroyers (which BF3 stats shows he is on the Sprut...http://bf3stats.com/leaderboard/360_veh.mtdSPRUTSD and then he explained that he was 5th overall with C4 kills and BF3stats.com concurs...http://bf3stats.com/leaderboard/360_wep.waeC4.

It is kind of funny when you run into these guys that are at the top of the leaderboards. Your just kind of doing your own thing, half paying attention. They tell how high up they are, you kind of don't hear it. Then you realize they are for real. IDK, it's just kind of funny and impressive at the same time.

Funny though, he seemed a little touchy on the C4 stuff. Kept talking about how most of the high rank C4'ers just camped and basically boosted, saying he knew for a fact the #1 guy did this, but then mentioned that the #2 guy (who is from Australia) was paralyzed and that he understood and respected his numbers. I told him about Nexus and his first question was, "Well does he camp and boost". I said, "yeah, he mainly just camps and boosts".

Wow I'm most impressed with that guy's 11K knife kills! Super beastly. And i love his 5.95% accuracy with the M60... he's probably one of those guys that walks around and never lets go of the trigger!

Trail - way to go!

you do realize you left myself and Lazy on both sides. As for Dude he has said he is on the XB1 side.

HKS and MPH are undecided and Nexus will start off on the PS4 side but I see him coming right back over to the XB1.

PS4 - So its 6 to start off with with that number falling off to 5, at least you can do 5 in a squad so thats good for you guys.
XB1 - 5 to start off with the number becoming 6.


Zath will follow the MS side once he joins in. He just doesnt want to admit yet since he doesnt want to upset Spyder.

Way to defend my honor you lout, I will have to mightily smight thee!

Leaderboards don't matter. I've dropped to 66 in C4. There was a time...but you get stuck just doing that all the time. Its like a full time job keeping up. Just like doing assignments. That guy has twice my hours so its easy to see his amount of kills. By extension if I played that much I'd be over 15k. I'd rather be an asset that takes up medic and revives as needed or recon to spawn from. Or C4 a tank and get rid of it. Camper...yea maybe at times but then its funny because the enemy has no clue!
