Recycled Holiday Event Edition>Update Noteshttps://www.planetside2.com/patch-notes/oct-5-pc-update-2023>Connery/Emerald Merge Petition Updatehttps://www.change.org/p/planetside-2-merge-emerald-and-connery-servers?redirect=false>Old binhttps://pastebin.com/nxNE1Az3>Old thread>>1010548
so the directive gets you a banner..yeah I won't be logging in for this "event"
Except for ESF A2G faggotry and TRshit, the game is just really fun
>halloween event>new cashboxes>fixesThat's it? Guys, I'm thinking the game's in ICU now and it's not gonna get better. Devs didn't even come forward and told us what's happening with the game's future and roadmap was made when Werl was still the main lead.It's sad to see it coming down
>last year we got an event camo and new tank cannons, oshur and esamir map updates AND new construction graphics>this year we get a line of text and a reskin of a gun we already got for freebros... i miss wrel...
Dead game, merge servers
>Fixed a bug that allowed you to revive through walls with the Revive tool.Fucking hope so, also nothing rly new Haunted Bastion should stay as 'normal' alert
i was hoping the alchemist bundle came back this year....
:( it's over
lets see>maybe 150 ISO>500 A7, 150 of it front-loaded on trick or treating>100 certs (front loaded)>a mystery implant from the new set (at least its on step 3 so its easier to get than summer 2>the banner and title and shitpretty meh but at least its generous with the base currencies. ill play for the loot box i guess
Call me an idiot but I would have gone for a very asymmetric faction design for PS2. Or, if I were a design lead for PS3, I would do it then.
>>1058862Matt Higby did nothing wrong. Planetside 2 is a tragedy of no one listening to Matt Higby. https://youtu.be/_fSaEJ-4-fU?si=gLvn8HPbhCfSgOaf&t=1583They never apologized, they never said thank you.
Settling up to the fact that the best anti-air is a wraith driving around a lock-on rocket launcher
>phylactery and a baseball batI will now mooch a prime code for your game
>>1058881I have so much admiration for this guy, honestly. Planetside 2 was not a game that was going to exist matter-of-course. It took effort.
>haven't played in 3 monthsI either shitstomp newbies or get shit on by sweats. There is never an in between.
>>1060288I have an aimbot but I ONLY use it to equalize against the cheaterfits and latency abusers. They need to do something about these abusers in these cheaterfits because right now it's becoming a deadgame. VS been cheating so bad right now
>>1057452just shot pampkin lol
>>1060994Inefficient, grind rezzes and crossbow shotsAlso, why didnt you fuckers tell me the crossbow was cooked? >two shot bodyshot out to like 100m with a 40 round clipIm in shitter heaven
>>1060850haha BRO its like I told you editing the .ini for smoke removal, using a 3rd party screen reticle and scripting LMB presses for perfect burst accuracy is totally not cheating omg ;)
>>1061102It's like you weren't there for the medieval mode release
>>1062274Oh i remember the explosive bolt LA jizz, but everyone stopped running it like its garbage when fracture bolts are a sniper-shotgun on fucking LA/Infil. Its absolutely filthy!
>>1062265>editing the .ini for smoke removalNot a thing> using a 3rd party screen reticle Not an issue>and scripting LMB presses for perfect burst accuracyYou do this and we mop the floor with you anyway then you turn your aimbot on
>>1057348Connery is dead.
>>1063256Imagine dying before soltech. How i miss briggs :(
>>1063256How bad is it?
>>1064243It's so much better just like golden age Briggs. Love the peace and quiet.
>>1057348>prime bundle said i got phylactery in chat>phylactery still locked even after re-logging and a day laterit's over
Why they never gave NSO neutral loyal soldier camo?
Ludicrous yell chat take of the day: headshots should be removed entirely
>>1064811I'd be down for that change. Tribes didn't need headshots.
>>1064860Tribes is an entirely different type of game, wtf are you smoking?
>>1064867I main LA so its not too different for me.
Did NC shit in Connery Vanus cereal or something? It seems personal. Every single day is the same thing for months now.
>>1064872I do too but I feel like LA would be super gimped without being able to kill people quickly with headshots and high ground. It would also crush the skill gap even further and make it so overpop zerglings would win even more.
>>1064811>*laughs in KCAP*
>dead thread>dead gayme
>>1067766sorry burnt myself out looking for pumpkins
>>1067799Yeah same, fuck that directive
>>1067766I haven't played for a week :(
>>1063256Based. Vanu are the only ones on that server that didn't get the memo kek.
>>1064811But then we might have a game that resembles PlanetSide.
i should be the next wrel, watch this>implant that doubles your reload time, but halves your switch weapon time
>>1071649Finally, I can play TR
>redeploys instead of reloading because the combined reload time would be 14 seconds
Does resist shield stack with safeguard? I'm thinking of running pump shotgun heavy with scavenger 5 and safeguard 5 and just repeatedly blasting people in the face when i get rez grenaded.
>>1072615Honestly im not sure if damage reductions stack at all. If you have Carapace you should run that because you get more HP back on res than you do shield so you can tank a bit more.
>>1072615I dont think so, but the extra health on revive would be pretty sweet
>>1071951Run the TMG-50, it reloads really quickly and its got a good four or five kills in the mag
if you still play connery even after we told you all to leave you should just troon out already
>>1074166Fuck of NC or TR fag. I bet you cry every day that TWC killed connery too. You're whining in chat right now lmfao.
>>1057348Anyone wants to buy an Emerald account? I really need the money, so I'm selling a BR78 TR character for $25. I posted my account on EpicNPC
>>1075915I'm willing to sell it for just $20, if anyone buys it this week. I'm the original owner.
>>1075918sure i'll buy it i sent you the details check your inbox
this game is truly dead now
>>1075918post your discord
>>1075915Is this stil for sale? I terminally on Connery but wouldn’t mind spending some money for a better start on emerald
>>1076723YES, it's still on sale. Please contact me on my thread on EpicNPC just to make sure. I posted my Discord ID there, so you can also contact me on Discord.Please, I really need the money and i'm selling it super cheap.
>>1076800>>1076723Not sure if I'm allowed to advertise or post links here, but you can Google EpicNPC Planetside 2; my thread is the first one. There I posted my Discord username.
>>1076800>>1076814I'll mark my thread on EpicNPC as sold, if I manage to sell it, but I still haven't been able to sell it.
>>1075918I'm really desperate, so I'm willing to take $15 in crypto for the account if anyone buys it before Friday. My Discord username is noppo1234, my id is 1116933235759390721. Same username and ID as on the thread I made on EpicNPC. For more information about the account you can contact me or check the thread I made there.
>>1076973Thanks, sent this info along via my personal correspondence with some very important people. Will get this account banned within the next day or two.
>bots are here now too
jesusaint farming shit tonight
>>1076973Have you considered working?
>>1057348How would you save this game?
>>1078247Ad blitznerf redeployless stupid ctf shit no one likes
My outfit has started doomposting about this being the last outfit wars.>>1078336redeploy is already cancer to use how the fuck would you nerf it further and hope to keep anybody from just closing the game and finding something else to do other than watch a timer/bar count down for 2 minute straight
should I join an outfit for outfit wars?
>>1078544I mean, it's obviously going to be a complete disaster.
>>1078336>nerf redeploy>With already shit poplol cmon it would only make sense if game still had 4k players on avg
>>1078576A lot of the sweatfits have been whining about the medic LOS changes and surprise they were the ones that abused it the hardest last OW
>>1078580Yeah I can not believe the amount of bitch tears on reddit because they can't abuse a bug to keep people immortal at no risk. Some of them don't even play the game, saying stupid shit like "you can't move or look around while tethered".
>>1078584No they were right about the looking around thing, it was a bug that you had to actually face the target and if an ally ran through your beam it broke it. It's been fixed though.
>>1078586Yeah but they don't know that because they haven't played it in live yet.
>>1078247Significant base redesigns. Vehicles should support capture of a base not create zones of death between the spawn and cap. Think PlanetSide 1 where a base could lose its courtyard but you have to get out of your vehicle to continue the assault. Basically, build up everything to support your infantry combat. Why? Because most people are too lazy to learn anything else but those lazy ones will be the bulk of your players.
>enjoying good fight >vanu koreans show up to thirdwheel>fight dies as everyone loses interest
>>1057348Beggars on the streets of Auraxis
>>1078939Many such cases. Vanu attracts THAT sort of player, you know what I mean.
>>1080396>be me>only play vanu>join platoon>platoon voice chat is retard boilerplate politics/philosophy discussion>lose
>>1080687thats what you get for playing with yanks
>>1080720it wasn't even edgy, it wasn't even pozzed, it was just retarded and boring
can anyone explain why vanu warpgates only nc every single day at this exact time only on connery? what did nc do to deserve this? should i just leave to emerald my account is brand new only br 21
>>1081269>should i just leave to emerald my account is brand new only br 21Yeah :/
>>1075915I'm still trying to sell it, I'm willing to take just $10.
>>1081681bro how the f are u this hard up, what drugs are you doing
>>1081688thats like a can and a half of keyboard cleaner
>>1081269they are intentionally trying to kill the server so they merge with emerald
>durr I'm TRash it's a Halloween alert let's all drive dozens Prowlers up at that unrelated base surrounded by walls>hurr I'm TRash oh no I have to defend this base let's all pull Prowlers and Mosquitos and drive at the enemy>durr I'm TRash so much strategic superiority hurr I need to overpop a base and shell a spawn room endlessly with all these vehicles>reeeee you actually destroyed our spawn and orbitalled our MAX stack point hold hurr we'll pull prowlers and mosquitos and drive at you now durr tactical superiority (aka faction imbalance and blind to it)TR is GROTESQUE and their shit deserves to be orbitalled out like TI alloys
>>1082201sounds like you need to bring more dudes
>>1082201What server is this? I wish Emerald TR would pull maxes for once, we keep getting shitstomped by NC coordinating 12 of them in a single push and nobody even attempts to throw tank mines at them
>>1082201This is a lie, TR only pulls vehicles when there's nobody around to shoot.
>>1082201Sounds like a VS got pissy his team wasn't able to curbstomp for a single alert.
>>1082201Amateur hour, just rock up with your overtuned mattocks and vang shield and jgx>im vanuIf you were really vanu you'd know how much worse fighting NC armour is. Wrel's ghost expects us to counterpull anti-armour maxes which noone is going to do because nc pay 400 nanites for 40 kills and we're expected to pay 400 nanites for the privilage of sending them back to the sunderer for 20s
>>1082541>jgxIs dogshit compared to AP
>>1082541>noooo but Vanguards are bettersVanguards aren't on the faction that will pull a dozen MBTs and retard gas at every opportunity, so even if you were right which you aren't, your argument is cope>>1082348>>1082247>hurr durr we TRash only pull vehicles to force fights to happen durrr
>>1082550If you cant reliably get side or back shots then sure, run AP. You still have 80% damage resistance so you'll still bulldoze any equivalent tank in a head to head fight>>1083504So... you're mad that you have all the tools nesessary to win but are too stupid to use them? Ngl senpai i dont sympathise
>>1057348Any big news for Planetside? Have not played it since this summer.
>>1083587Honestly this makes me the most mad.Like if we just get outplayed or outpopped or if we just can't break through the 20 lashers on the choke, shikataganai. But when TR is just sitting in their prowlers doing nothing watching the base get capped holy fuck i want to c4 them all.
>>1083587>hurr durrr TRash here just zerging with another dozen Prowlers other factions can counters us they're just too stupid to do so durr that's why this is smart and balanced hurr
>>1084606>>1083504>>1082201copestrength in unity, vaniggerneck yourself
>>1083970Werl's dead and there's been no significant news since except a few botched implants. Currently the game seems to be on life support and is just ticking over with seasonal events and new amazon prime skins. Allegedly theres "big news coming" thats supposed to drop after outfit wars, but they've been saying that for five months nowOh also we're doing outfit wars>>1084312You should, moments like that are why C4 was born>>1084606Your tank has more health and does more effective damage, literally all you have to do is press w+m1+f. If that's too much for you then what do you want me to do about it? Give NC aim assist? Do you need a "tell me a story" difficulty setting?
whats the best way to use the Maw, I'm clearly doing something wrongI hope the answer isn't>don't
>>1085403Have you ever used the Anchor? It's basically the Anchor but with shorter burst fire (by like, 1.5 rounds average difference over distances) but slightly faster reset between bursts. IMO that's a negative tradeoff (also slower weapon swap, reload, and lack of silencer loadout) but if the Anchor is #2 LMG in the game those are a very minor downgrade from the Anchor makes the Maw a very good weapon considering what alternatives the VS actually have. The Anchor, Maw, etc. are really good LMGs to learn that skill curve on how to maximize LMG performance like those 30,000 hour HA tryhards.
>>1085548I am so new (returning) that I understood about half of this.So keep bursting? Should I bother with Angled Grip over Laser Sight? Thanks.
>>1085619Not a problem. Most players don't know. Even if players thought they knew, the march 2022 arsenal update actually changed attachment meta more than most people realize and it's very poorly documented.for bursting:https://youtu.be/dEZ5carMnlk?t=127Just 30 seconds will improve 50% of planetmen aim 50% or more!Use 1x sight, compensator + forward grip + soft point ammunition. It's too long winded to explain the science, just trust me
>>1085619Only laser sight a gun thats already good at hipfiring AND that you expect to hipfire regularly
>>1085682>>1086188This helped a lot, thanks
>>1083587AP has such a higher skill ceiling than the jgx its ridiculous. JGX is only viable in the cqc run up to every tank you see and just press f to win mindset. Any kind of skill shot like a long distant one on a moving target or shooting down air requires AP.
All i'm hearing is a lot of cope from people unable to lead slow shots.I miss tribes
A 2 man Magrider has a theoretical 7 seconds to kill a Prowler and a Prowler has a theoretical 6 seconds TTK on a Magrider. That's assuming the Prowler is using AP not a Kingsnake the Kingsnake brings it down to 5 seconds. A 1 man Magrider and a Lightning have the same TTK on a Prowler. Two Lightnings can down a Prowler in 5.5 seconds and it be on a coinflip if one of the Lightnings is lost in the exchange. Conclusion: Vanguards are OP, and VS should just pull Lightnings every time.
>>1057367because>no-one wants to play with VS minmaxxing shitter koreans>TR are underpowered and are mostly carried by 1 or 2 sweaty corps>NC is fun, balanced and community has a "cool bro, come join the fight" newbro friendly attitude
>>1078247at this point its been over 10 yearsjust release Planetside 3 already, basically the same just new and shiny, well-coded, no pay2win, not too fucking grindymost important thing is have properly coded servers with no lag. game shouldnt grind to a halt when 200 players are in the same area. make it so you can have 1000 vs 1000 battles with no lag, lure some streamerbait in and you have game of the decade
>>1087314PS2 doesn't grind to a halt with 200 players in the area. It's actually a marvel of engineering compared to what developers can manage today.
>>1087314who is the target demo? kids only play cell phone games with pronouns now
>muh theoretical both facing eachother point blank in a flat open plane where nobody missesthe eternal vanig cope
>>1086188I get pretty good results laser sighting scout rifles.
>>1087836Its not like you have many other attachment options for scouts. Maybe forward grip if you're TR.
>>1087931True. But for me it makes the difference between being able to reliably hipfire them if an enemy gets near you or not.
>>1087566>everybody misses the same % of shots>nothing changesTRash
>>1088066Absolute brainlet post, no fight ever takes place in this idealistic scenario and trying to balance around that is retardation at its best.
>>1088072doesn't ever invert the value of superior statsif you have shorter TTK it is an advantage.if you have higher weapon readiness, it is an advantage.TRash trying to ignore that reality is harsh cope
>>1088102TR having inaccurate weapons is delusionally untrue
>>1088114I hope one day you have as much horizontal recoil on everything as I do
>gladius>vanquisherholy fuck i picked the wrong faction, these feel amazing
>>1089035gladius and cyclone will pamper you
>>1089040Cyclone is one of the most OP weapons in the game. It's actually disgusting.
>>1090459both the cyclone and this are absolutely disgusting
>>1087311Nah. Faction based PvP games rarely work out. Even with balance. Once one side starts winning, the other sides bounce. Either swapping teams if possible or just leaving to play something else. Every pvp game that has this sorta large scale team based combat ends up t his way.
>>1087937Ubgl it, just headshot bro
why has my ping to connery and emerald increased by about 100ms in the past year
TRash pile of petty cheaters on emerald. total scum
>>1093699Everyone cheats in some manner these days it's the meta
>>1094092only losers cheat
>join one night>pick TR character>NC curbstomps everyone including vanu>next night>pick NC>NC gets curbstomped by everyone, wastes alert time sitting in the warpgate or territories nobody is fighting in while losing every territory>vanu cat litter enjoyers decide to shit the place up>>1094451Who do you think plays this game?
>>1093585I think some of the stuff they added isnt running smoothly. I swear i get worse and worse frames with every new cosmetic, half the time drop pidding gets me killed before any of the enemies have even loaded in. I wish they'd do a placeholder model first or something
Every time I think about renewing my premium, that VS flyhacker shows up for several hours during primetime and reminds me why I don't give dbg any money.
>>1082201I am TR and i say all those things
>>1095801I was in a platoon with him last week ama
>>1096651Is it true he logs on and turns on his hacks when VS is losing?
>>1097015no I think he does it all the time and just uses a new f2p account if he gets banned judging from his gibberish name, I only noticed him because I was flying in a Lib and he was just flying
>>1097058He claimed he made the hacks himself once which is like sure buddy that's what every skiddy says.
>>1094092pussy bitch, you probably can't even beat me with your paid scripts
https://www.planetside2.com/news/dev-letter-nov-2023New conduit changes
>year of our lord 2015+8>people are still logging into planetside dailywhat's your excuse for not having moved on yet?
>>1098594It's free and there's no scifi shooter that feels better to play?t. only bother to log on a few times a week
>>1098594Name another game where I can pick up a load of dudes in a vtol transport and fly them to a completely different fight with different people, and potentially have the people from the last fight chase us over there for one big fuckfest. I'll gladly swap over.
>>1098579doesn't matter. if you want to compete with the big boys you need to cheat.
I haven't played this game in yeasr as was thinking of coming back to itIs it true they added some kind of water combat?I'm genuinely confused
>>1099448Yeah an entire planet dedicated to it, and most people avoid the water combat because they don't want to equip the specific underwater guns that are better underwater because it messes with their 80000 hour trained muscle memory and their soft aimbots don't function with old guns. Its why I miraculously go 20:1 kdr while underwater against sweatfits who would normally destroy me on ground.
>>1099465fuck underwater combat sounds neat
>>1099465i never thought of it this way
>>1099489Just wait until you actually engage in it and realize it's not good. In fact, you're not swimming or anything, you're moving exactly as you would on land, but slower.
>>1099465underwater combat is unironically fucking awesome and it's tragic people ignore it because metaslaves, statpadders and sweatfits cant do epic point holds against br 20s down there and also at least a third the remaining playerbase is that exact demographic of infantry mains which kinda blows and is probably part of the reason player retention is lowI never play heavy assault on lad but underwater i default to it cuz the fucking uhhh diver jet thing they can equip makes it way more bearable to play with the extra movement speedpic related is my water nigga, wish i could use him more and logged in for the first time since september to take a screenshot of
>>1100105every class can equip that diver jet thing
it's crazy how this games population can be split into "people who metaslave and stat pad" and "people who play as off meta as possible in spite of metaslaves even if their stats suffer for it" with zero (0) in-between
>>1100189Well yeah you're either a heavy main or you play the other 75% of the game.
>>1098594New shooters are terrible, where else would I go?
>>1100105Pretty sweet, but have you considered LA gliding along the surface and dropping directly on top of your enemies with a shotgun? Or an engineer on land volleying mana missiles?
>>1099465you bring up the positives but forget the major negative which is that the person who has to actually go anywhere in underwater combat is a helpless target and it's nearly impossible to remove an attacker's spawnif it was actually swimming and the firearms were even more handicapped/harpoon battles sure but it's not any of that
>>1100511>the person who has to actually go anywhere in underwater combat is a helpless targetplay light assault>nearly impossible to remove an attacker's spawnplay light assault or a2gnot my fault you're a low IQ heavy main
>>1100513I know you haven't actually done it. Trying to fire while on the move underwater, even while jetpacking as a LA, with any weapon, is so terrible you have to be outrageously lucky to get the kill.A2G weapons can't reach into the depths, and a c4 durability sundy takes 4x c4, so assuming you can even safely, expensively, deliver c4 without getting shredded for not being entrenched, you have to do it twice.
>>1100580>A2G weapons can't reach into the depthsThey can>and a c4 durability sundy takes 4x c4And they can't be repaired>without getting shredded for not being entrenchedDrop down from above, you know, like a light assault>you have to do it twice.Soften it up with a2g, bail on approach, c4, AV knife the rest of it downhell most of the time you can just sit on top of it and av knife the entire health bar down because nobody looks up
>>1100590I've just sunk a 200 nanite sunderer at a seapost. It will now spawn infantry who are just crouch hiding with partial cover.Your argument is>Water is fun>just be aware of the sunderer's existence>fly a 350 nanite ESF from a nearby location>find the sundy's exact location>hit it somehow (??? it's seriously not an option)>bail out>fall slowly with nobody noticing you so you can c4 it for 150 nanites>if that wasn't enough respawn and do it all again>pray that every single opponent is dumber than rocks and that you aren't going to face more than one sunderer>water combat is fun
>>1100594>fly a 350 nanite ESF from a nearby location400 cortium*>find the sundy's exact locationby looking>hit it somehow by shooting>fall slowly with nobody noticing younobody is going to see you above the water coming down>pray that every single opponent is dumber than rocksIf my opponents are all you, then yeah this one is easy
>>1100470i do the former the other 99% of my play time
Dipshit friendless boomer gets pissy that two retarded infiltrators(my friend and I) managed to wipe out his OSU base in five minutes with cortium bombs.
>>1100620Continued, we weren't even doing anything particularly trollish, just knocking an orbital base out of commission. Dude spent the next half hour sending me tells about how good he is just cuz he managed to machine gun me once while planting a bomb.
>>1100620>>1100623Why even argue or get upset about thisIt's plain that was basically his only kill that entire night, just let him think he pulled an epic gamer move and feel better about it and tell his friends how cool he is at the game
>>1100643Cuz the spectacle of watching a 40 year old man cry about losing his digital sand castle to a couple of bored idiots is funny.
i only see one person crying and it's the one posting in the thread
>>1100599>Meme turret vs bwoosh shottieKino supremeo
>>1100675It's you because OS is for fucking faggots and those Infiltrators DID NOTHING WRONG
11th anniversary bundle and shit, woo
>>1100599>shotgun la>resist stacking engiWhere is the battlegoose medkit chugger to complete the holy trinity of infantry mains?

>>1101342Sad that the perception of hitreg is what always filters the newfags. I thought it was shit too at first until I realized it was a me issue and not the game, but boy howdy does this game have some fucking clientside moments.
>>1101532yeah hitreg is fine it's personal player latency + clientside hit detection that is usually the bullshit culpritthe ultimate newfag filter is "everyone is hacking and also paying to win but me"the majority of "cheating" that happens in this game is more comparable to clever exploitation of game mechanics and a deep, almost esoteric understanding of the flow of battle you simply do not will not and can not learn for at least the first 500 hours of play timedo some players use ahk scripts to control recoil and turn semi/burst weapons full auto? yes. do some players have aim locks and no clip? yes. but those are a very very tiny majority compared to players who just play a lot that get hackusationed daily.both "le pay to win" and "le haxxors" are learned behavior too, players dont necessarily come up with it themselves but rather are parroting what they saw somebody else sayunfortunately this is not a problem the game devs can fix, even if the anticheat was perfect and all weapons had the price tag removed both pay to win accusations and hackusations would remaineven if new players get past the p2w/hax mind goblin the point >>1100105 made about a significant amount of remaining players being as good as they are ruins the new player experience made me think on it and they might be is spot on. there is LITERALLY nothing that can be done to fix this also which is lol
>>1101558>and also paying to winIt's amazing how they refuse to listen to "you can buy any gun in the game in the first 30 minutes of play, even the gun you think is p2w"the only thing sorta p2w is the fucking nanite regen boost you get from premium that also stack with the paid boosters, though it makes me smile knowing some MBT main is literally paying money to eat my C4 bricks for free
>>1078247Make Sunderers overpowered and meta defining
>>1101770I dunno manI'm more terrified of 4 rep battlebusses coming over the hill than 4 MBTs
>>1101783Make parked* Sunderers overpowered and meta definingSundies should be the definitive way to spawn, not beacons, not routers. Make them indestructible if that's what it takes.
>>1101786Tell heavies to do their job with the rocket launcher their class was given and shoot at lightnings that get pulled.
>>1101789I was asked how to save the gameTelling other players to babysit a vehicle is not how I save the game. They won't do it
>>1101798Okay okay I got itRemove heavy overshield so they go back to being rocket bitches dealing with vehicles like their entire kit suggests.
haven't played in seven months. uninstalled three months ago. no desire to come back, but for some reason i still have an overwhelming melancholy leftover. i loved planetside 1 so much... 2 could have been so good. i wish they didn't fuck it up so bad. i miss the good old days of ut99, 2k, mechwarrior, tribes... cyssorside, forseral and searhus fights, ishundar and solsar, that huge fucking ravine on ceryshen that would occasionally cause huge bridge fights, surgile, snipers being literal shit tier, thumpers and lashers causing stalemates every day... oh well. guess it had to end someday.
>>1101532>t. flyhacking vanu max
>>1101899Im not quite sure how you got this from my post but ok
>>1101807>Remove heavy overshieldthis will not result in sweaty heavy mains actually using their rockets on tanks, this will result in sweaty heavy mains dropping heavy for medic and no longer having any rocket launcher at all
>>1101558This post >>1085682 changed my life regarding LMG usage, I'll never forget logging in afterwards and immediately getting a 5 kill streak against NC so it doesn't really count after previously struggling to do anything with them
>>1101558>those are a very very tiny majorityYeah, about half of all players sounds about right
>>1085619On most guns I don't like angled grip, the horizontal recoil is more harmful than the first shot recoil reduction, especially compared to forward grip. Just learn where the first shot recoil takes you and adjust from there.
>>1085682>even this guy can't chain headshot with the msr-w at 50mMan I just keep getting more and more vindicated that that one guy was aimbotting.
>>1102933Angled makes most TR guns actually unsuable, otherwise it just makes NC and VS guns behave similar to TR guns normally.Theres a handful of guns where angled is actually busted specifically TR's SABR-13, and NC's default AR and its aurax benefit from it nicely. Vanquisher would be the strongest gun in the game if it had angled. SAW and GODSAW were better with it before the min damage got nerfed so now it's kind of pointless to snipe with it.
>>1102966Yeah it seemed pretty decent on the saw but i always just aimed at feet/chest and let the first shot recoil take me to the head naturally since it goes straight up.I did experiment with it on NC's burst weapons and it seems pretty decent there but the burst is already so tight i'm not sure how much it actually helps.
>>1102967Its not really much a gain on the gauss burst they already have incredibly low first shot recoil except the vanquisher, but vanquisher is strong as fuck anyway.
>no new prime drop this monthbros...
>>1103519still true though. and then in a month you say "remove medic's heal ability so medic players play the class correctly and revive people instead of being selfish killfarmers" and then the same sweats just drop medic for the next best 1v1 class and still do not revive you or kill tanks
>>1103643The actual issue is Carapace thoughever
>>1103760sorry my bad, lemme correct myself then:you say "remove carapace so medic players play the class correctly and revive people instead of being selfish killfarmers" and then the same sweats just drop medic for the next best 1v1 class and still do not revive you or kill tanks
mfw this VS shitter has to toggle on his aimbot after getting shat on repeatedly but he still cant autowin duels against pistols
>>1101532>hop over to battlefield 4>also notorious for having client side hit detection and the issues that come from it>shots actually connect, manage to kill just about everyone I actually fire on>nobody magically kills me through walls or kills me in three shots after tanking over a dozen hitmarkers>sweats with aimbots still try to claim it's a skill issue
How many years do you think this game will last?
>>11062612024 will be its last year if theres no planned content, and even then its going to lose a large chunk of population after outfit wars.
>all the sweaty shitters are on NC practicing blowing up sunderersman this game's community is dogshit
>>1106327Always funny when they roll through and kill every possible fight at off hours and then whine the loudest in shout when you return the favor.
>>1106978>you return the favor.>sweats pulling a bus everAll ill say is thank wrel for av mines. After two or three pops they usually get the message
>>1107078I dont know how you manage to get natural AV mine kills without putting it right in front of the vehicle pad, everybody shoots the ones i place.I just use them as extra-strength C4 for stubborn parked busses
>>1107081Put them right on top of the vehicle pad, sweats pull from the msp menu they'll never see it. Its also fairly easy when you know where your sunderer is parked because they'll take the road there at full speed so you hide mines on depressions or around tight corners. Nothing's garuanteed but it works most of the time
>>1107084Yeah road mines is what I meant, they always get seen and shot no matter how clever I thought I was. The most clever thing i've done is find someone else's minefield and place my own right on top of theirs so it blended in and that's been getting me a lot of kills + extra EXP for blowing up their mines
>>1107089Use the caltrops with them too if you have the time
>>1107089i arx'd them a couple years ago by placing them on enemy watch tower resupply pads near the front line but a hex or two back, they nuke aircraft when they land for more ammo, usually ground pounding esfs but the occasional lib as welli dont have the game installed so i cant show exactly where but about where the blue dots i drew on this image is where MOST aircraft will land, or at least glide over low enough to detonate them and they are a lot harder to spot from the sky then you'd think
>>1109522worth noting: it was completely passive, driving a turbo flash out with mine carrier engi to drop my load up there then going somewhere else to play LA or something until i get a kill, then going out to lay more. rinse and repeat
I stopped playing this when I realized that cartels could just drop nukes on the map.
>>1105287>wtf i can hit people in casual garbage game but not game where i have to actually aimskill issue
>>1105287>nobody magically kills me through walls or kills me in three shots after tanking over a dozen hitmarkersclientside + skill issue
>>1109528the real issue is it is not limited to cartels and they are very easy to obtain in solo outfits
Am I the only one that likes orbitals?I think its fun when I have to scurry inside because the sky is detonating. My only complaint is the massive knockback even when you're indoors + far away from the rendered circle. Whole thing needs to be like 75% weaker in force (but still lethal if you're outside)I guess it makes MAX mains seethe but that's even better imo.
>>1109962no i agree and think they are great off rule of cool alone but motherfuckers have been trying to make planetside an mlp esport since day 2 and orbital strikes are literally as antithetical to that as possible so the tears will never stop flowingt. solofit gamer with 500 armory os strikes
>>1110027One day I want to multibox like 6 accounts and build up an orbital on each one in a solo outfit and just drop on a random 96v96 and unzip all 6 orbitals simultaneously to end the fight instantly.
>>1110033an outfit can have two ready to go back to back, dont need to multi box and with 6 characters you can log out/in 6 times in a row to dump 12most ive done is 7 back to back across a few alts
>>1110038No I mean literally simultaneously. I want them all to go off at once so theres no survivors. Even the people inside get crunched by all the massive knockback damage.
>>1110051fuck it do it the game is dying anyway
>>1109528i can nuke without outfit
>>1109962I like them because you get funny interactions like anchoring your max/prowler to avoid the yeet
So why did everyone leave Connery?
>>1112070there was server troubles for awhile and people leftpeople leaving made more people leaverepeat
>>1112070there's a concerted effort by the usual connery suspects, you know who, to kill the server. in discord right now they coordinate sundy killing to force the last few remaining people to leave so daybreak will merge emerald and connery.
>>1057348v6 means you're mad
>>1116511v6 is badass, v5 is reddit v1 is based
>>1117005it just means you're mad at me, everything else you say is true
>>1116511>>1117005>>1117024What about v2?
>>1087333It's still a downgrade from its predecessor which could support 999 players in one area.>>1087314They will change it in the remake and it will piss you off. For me, its spotting. Cool flank? Nah, that sniper that can't hit you instantly told a tank you're running up on them thanks to Doritos. Want to flank a squad? Nope, that guy you killed has Doritos your position and it will continue to track after their death. You can buy implants to clear it but you gotta gamble for a bit.

>>1112070500+ ping for over six months
lmao vkatz still thinking outfit wars is won by getting the best infantry ringers from AC/B54 instead of actual combined arms players
>>1118607I hate you so god damn much.
