I'm resubbing! Or well, resubbing in the first place, my first account was a trial.
This account is only a few months old. When did trials end? [editline]5th February 2011[/editline] Also, recalling to the sanctuary crashes my game. :/
December 2010

Oh man, forgot how much fun it is picking off VS and TR infantry while they fight amongst each other. <3 Bolt Driver
Alright, I'm playing ingame, part of the NC. Love flying. Nearly any cert I could forget ended up with the points going to flying. Ingame name is truedarkreign.
Wow Planetside is impossible. I do all the trainings, get Uni-Max. Fucking Max armor is useless. I played for 3 hours today, didn't ever get any kills, got my ass handed to me by everything. The only kill I ever got so far is when I got in a tank gun and killed a Lightning. I'm going to forget unimax and I'm going sniper or pilot.

Anyway, MAXes take time to get used to but put a LOT more power into your hands. You won't be very effective in other roles until you have more cert points to spend. If you want some easy XP just get any vehicle cert and then use ANTs and refuel base silos. Just make sure you're in a squad when you do it: there's no point wasting that experience. (Every "tick", which is approximately a second, you'll get 20 SEP, and so will anyone in your squad that is in range. SEP is not divided up, it's copied... so make sure to share!) BTW that 20 sep is just what I remember, things might have changed as it has been a LONG time since I played.
VS had the coolest MAX power by far.
[QUOTE=Squeaken;27883671]VS had the coolest MAX power by far.[/QUOTE] Agreed, NC just had great weapons. But by far, my favourite MAX is the TR AA MAX. I still think they should have buffed the range further than they already have, but regardless, it has the most DPS of all the AA MAXes (well it did pre-VS buff) and if used by an experienced user can make reaver pilots cry. But then when I played armor convoys for TR/NC, I was often a skyguard gunner so me being a flak user shouldn't be shocking.
I'm playing NC.
NC AA max and AI max are awesome. Just stay indoors with the Scattercannon and pick off aircraft with the Sparrow. The nice part about the Sparrow is that you don't need to maintain a lock, missiles are fire and forget.
I could never snipe when I played this game again a year or so ago. It's like my cursor was confined to a grid that didn't even scale to the zoom, meaning an enemy could be standing in between the places my cursor could snap to, and therefore be impossible to aim at. Did anyone else get this?
How's the current average playercount every battle? I don't want to resub until I know people are actually playing.

[QUOTE=LoLWaT?;27886956]How's the current average playercount every battle? I don't want to resub until I know people are actually playing.[/QUOTE] As of now, pop has been very good with news of PS Next, we're currently having pretty massive outside battles with somewhere near 60-70 per side.
I can't get my launcher to work, it just pops up Planetside and shows a large gray box. I wanted to sub to this but eh, not now.
Most times when I recall to Sanctuary and occasionally on normal warps I crash to desktop. Anyone else have this issue? I'm running Win7 64-bit (and the program in XP-SP3 compatibility). I've changed to SP2 compatability. Hopefully that fixes it, but I highly doubt it will. Can we get a FP outfit going? Edit: Wow, a whole day of getting our asses kicked. Nobody willing to go cap a base on a different planet to pull some of the enemy away or create a new front. We lost base after base and rather than reconsidering our tactics we just kept on getting steamrolled. Retarded.

People were surprised. [editline]6th February 2011[/editline] I will get one sorted when I next go ingame. Message me on Steam about it
yeah, a lot of people have subscribed to get access to the Next beta when it starts [editline]6th February 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=BradB;27890156]Most times when I recall to Sanctuary and occasionally on normal warps I crash to desktop.

We are getting our ass kicked in Esamir! Also I found my calling. I forgot unimax and got myself air scout and air assault. I got six kills at the same time by doing a rocket strafe on a group of infantry. Also killed a colossus.
Aircav is way too easy to get good at, yeah
