The first time is rather daunting but once you get the hang of everything it gets good. Through playing the beta I have come to the conclusion the only way to have a good experience is to join up with a group, playing by yourself sucks
SG..I never see your outfit around!!! What gives? What determines where ya'll play for the night? I can tell you that generally, our leadership goes to buzzcutphyscho's twitch channel to see where he is playing (Leader of The Enclave) And we just go there and push them around till he rages and changes continents. Then we cap/lock Thats how you liberate some FOOLS.
In regards to Planetside I like the changes they have made from beta, everything seems smoother and spawning is better it seems. Ran around following some GOONS today trying to take a bio lab, fought for about 30 minutes and I believe they are still at it now.
It started with a push on the TR warpgate by a large tank force, TR counterattacked with Air and some tanks, we reformed at Mao Tech plant and lined up on a ridge South of Camp Waterson. We had between 20 and 30 tanks lined up on that ridge with more support to the rear. We engaged the TR from the high ground on the ridge and were crushing the TR tanks as they came out. As they gathered more forces from the Warpgate they flanked north of our ridgeline. Frost was driving the Vanguard I was gunning in, we must have racked up 5 or 6 Prowler kills, 9 or 10 Lightning kills, several mossie kills and lots of infantry kills with our tank alone as we swept along the north side of our salient. The battle must have lasted over half an hour with the second part of the battle lasting at least 15 to 20 minutes of constant shooting and rearming.
It was the perfect place for a pitched armor battle like that, there had to be several hundred people engaged in that fight in the open desert.
Probably one of my favorite places to fight. I haven't been able to play much since it went live because we have a newborn, but we are starting to settle into a routine and I'm able to find an hour or two here and there . I'm really hoping to get some time in tonight for the bonus xp weekend.
