Planetside 2 is currently at a player peak it hasn't seen since launch, so I tried it again, and it's actually pretty decent. The base building's fucking great, and it's fun to just fly past a battle in a Valkyrie blasting CCR over proximity chat, just like in 'nam.

Sure there's still microtransactions, but if you're playing TR Master Race the starter weapons are the best weapons to go with most of the time.

So, if you ever wanted to try the game, once more or for the first time, this would be the best time to do it.

Me and some of the folks on the Leeky Forums mumble started a couple of factions in Connery, both in TR and NC.
If you're TR hit up "Ardebitis", NC hit up "BuildDatWall", I'll get you sorted out.

@CouchChiller
Yeah, they added construction/mining at the end of April, it pretty much saved the game.

@CouchChiller
Platoon Commanders can organize people to build bases and shit. I was in a platoon. Our commander was basically co-ordinating the construction and defense of our base. One squad was handling resource gathering and escort duty, the rest were on defenses.
The game really sparks armour fights in a big way since they're useful for sieges.
The update's great.

I got really into the game back when it started, back when it was still buggy and you randomly got your screen turned 30 degrees if you got shot/had a cannon blast close to you, and put in like 90+ hours but gradually stopped playing. Is the soldier gameplay still corridor/trench squatting and spamming grenades/revives, the vehicle combat essentially close combat, or occasional long-rage awesome tank fights, and the flying/dogfighting the most fun part of the game besides the wait time if you get shot down?

@Sir_Gallonhead
Well, if you like dogfighting, good news, they removed vehicle/MAX cooldowns, now they're limited by resources/nanites only.

Is the game still a pile of trash that crashes every 10 minutes and fails to reach playable frame rates on top end hardware though?

@Lord_Tryzalot
Nope, that was actually one of the first things they worked on once it released.

Evil_kitten
Evil_kitten

construction saved the game from dying

it's still push to spawn and spam C4 to win in most cases, though

also I think it's too easy to take out a base. The core needs like 2-3 times more health.

Emberburn

Intriguing but it's a game that relies on swarm intelligence and thus still sucks.

I also distinctly remember that it was P2W in a lot of instances.

It's like you faggots don't want freedom.

though, I guess thats why you can have multiple characters on all the factions. TR is so over fucking populated anyway, only reason I wouldn't want to play them

@Gigastrength

That's a realistic, real-world strategy faggot.
Quantity is a quality of it's own.

The point of the game is to have fun, so maybe apply another real-life strategy, and hit the enemy where it is weak. Or have a surplus of quality.

BunnyJinx

@kizzmybutt

During their peak hours, they can take and dish out damage when they can, the problem is that apparently TR has some OP shit on their side at the moment and they kind of faceroll.

I do know that NC max's kinda suck dick compared to the other 2 just because their main mode of anti-infantry is close range, while Vanu/TR have short/medium range weapons. That alone makes them more dangerous than NC MAX's.

I played like a month or so ago, but the general jist of it was that TR had moderate damaging, high fire rate, low recoil weapons, and a few specific ones with high damage and the same recoil/fire rate, so everyone plays them now for the more OP guns. Once another faction gets something similiar, there's usually a small exodus for flavor of the month.

I pick NC just because I like hitting things hard, even if it gets me killed most of the time.

VS Infils were always the bane of my existence. The Scythe spam honestly was Free XP, I always jumped in AA and fucked their shit up. Too many faggots not AAing so it was a free lunch basically.

Honestly though I really miss the TR Tank Column, those were some of the best moments for me, TR Tank Collumn with Sundees chained to them to provide heals and cloak. Totally wrecks anything. Sadly yeah Zerging in this game is how you win but its fun as shit when two major zerg forces hit each other. Clusterfuck is one word I'd use to describe it. But if everyones doing their job and healing you can hold out for hours. So much fun.

There's always been too many guns that aren't immediately recognizable for me to tell how game balance is. That said I've always had the gut feeling that if I had to choose between fighting TR, Vanu, or NC, I'd settle for fighting both the TR and the NC at the same time(As a non-Vanu). It doesn't help that they're the degenerate Redditor Elf faction.

That said, anyone playing TR on Emerald?

This game has some of the most intense and satisfying large scale battles I've ever experienced. They can be hard to come by though. Maybe I'll give it another go with this base building stuff, there's probably massive battles centering around them.

My PC couldn't run it too well, averaged 25-40 during small skirmishes, 60 during small skirmishes when I was playing during cool nights and barely 15 at large battles, last I played was like two or three years ago. Has performance been improved or am I shit out of luck

I always found myself getting bored after playing this game for a while, I loved it while I was enjoying it but it just got kinda samey and boring eventually since I usually don't join guilds or clans in games.

Maybe i'll try it out again when im in the mood for multiplayer, the base building sounds like it might add some more variety to it and i've heard it's been getting better after it was bought by a new company.

mfw the game's population has exploded with EVEN MORE BRS because now hues with toasters too slow for firefights can hop in an ant and get xp for squatting in their little retard base on the corner of the map miles away from any other players while taking up continent spots
mfw the true retardation of F2P game players is on display for all to see as mouthbreathers build bases in the middle of roads preventing friendlies on the ground from getting through
mfw the game's population is now split between "PVPers" and "PVEers"
mfw the "PVEers" want to play the game like it's minecraft and are completely useless when it comes to the core of the game - PVP

At least in PS1 ANTs were part of logistics and kept bases powered so players could keep fighting other players. The construction system is the most poorly-thought-out game mechanic I've seen in a long, long time. It's just a gimmick, and you can really tell they cannibalized all the tech right from Everquest Landmark which was canceled a while back.
