It's been 20 lol years, how do you feel about Planetside, Planetside 2 and/or Planetside Arena?
>>
>>929502
They had 10 years to put a single jack of all trades artist and a programmer on the task of incrementally polish the game for it to look and feel good, but dbg ps2 team did not. At this point I am 100% sure they dont care and people working there just go to the "job" for a paycheck. Another one of a kind game destined to die in agony because of retarded devs.

The biggest downside to the VS is that all the guns sound wrong and have enormous eye-rape projectiles. I can't land headshots with any of them compared to TR and NC, even using guns that are objectively good, because every single one goes PEW PEW PEW and glows.

>>931091
scythe has the smallest 1v1 a2a cross-section. it's hard to duel against even in a reaver. you have to either gank or be a significantly better pilot to win.

mossie is fastest. it doesn't matter much in a2a or a2g, but it's important if you're trying to get a beacon at a base.
>>
>>930287
NSO zogbots, we won.
>>
>>931134
>mossie is fastest
its faster by like 20km/h when they all go 200, and they all have the same thruster speed anyway so it really does not matter. If you're beacon running without a fuel tank you're just being lazy
>>
>>931181
it's useful in very specific circumstances, like getting on point first during outfit wars or lanesmash. reaver has longer thrust and kind of makes up for its speed over most distances, but scythe gets shafted.
>>

Last OW all esfs were basically just death swarming eachother for the first 5 minutes to establish air superiority (except that one time 2raf got met with no ESFs and a horde of skyguards on point and lost lmao)

Only certain bases and the warpgate have large vehicle terminals. You can tell because the icon actually looks like a tank and not a hotdog.

Racer is a meme except on lightnings and only for specific use.
AP all the way, hesh is rarely worth it unless you find a really fucking good tunnel farm you want to ruin.
Kingsnake is pretty good for close combat only, same with JGX but if you can arc it's decent longer range.

>>
>>932280
HESH is the infantry farmer, though its significantly less effective these days since almost everybody runs Flak armor now which reduces explosive damage.
>>
I have seen the light of the underbarrel gl
one of the bases had this underground cave with a tunnel that goes a turn, and like 50 people on both sides just fucking spamming trash into them yesterday on EU
managed to peak gl the fuck out of everyone bunched up spamming their shit
also hilarious moments of flying in with the jetpack guy hugging the ceiling, dropping c4 and getting 6-8 kills in 1 pop
before I realized that the game is cancer and c4 costs some resource that takes forever to generate. garbage design.
got a bunch of carts though in that hour, and we pushed them through

What are some assorted things you would like in a new Planetside, gamers? Dream big. Go off.
>PS1 features- Inventories, jacking, looting. Having asymmetrical equipment that can be stolen is just cool, so is shit that can be done in the sandbox with inventories being share-able/vehicles having them
>No classes, a progression system that's faster and more about building your character to fill certain roles that can be respec'd, more like PS1- maybe other forms of progression like cosmetics, small modifiers/sidegrades and having a form of player housing for outfits (kind of like warframe had) but people shouldn't feel obligated to extend fights and farm kills just to get their characters online, that's shit
>Even more specialized roles you can cert into: Jetpackers with genuinely high mobility, dedicated builders, etc.
>3 Factions which shouldn't have to be said but they considered cutting VS once
>Simplified, stylized graphics, not like literal Fortnite or anything but something that will look solid after a decade and perform well, unlike PS2
>Intercontinental map/lattice
>Purely to indulge myself, a legitimate melee combat system for knife-fighting or fistfights, either directional or mordhau
>Varied environments and biomes, one thing I really want is a dedicated, dense city map
>Allow factions to "win" the war and give them permanent rewards for doing so, play into live service with in-universe propaganda announcements and the like, sort of like splatoon having splatfests, relating to this, reboot the plot and actually lean a little into developing it this time, soft larping is a constant in planetside so people clearly enjoy the idea of the setting
>Wildlife- not like, alien monsters or anything (at least at first,) just ambient birds and fauna and the like
>Anything that improves your amount of options in the sandbox. Allowing daring solo fuckery and harebrained team strategies is peak PS
>>
>>930287
Bad Vanu go away.
Always Run the Bionics implant with ASC.
Heavy VS:
Obelisk
Thumper (currently Helios, which might be a permanent upgrade, even the primary fire is excellent)
Lancer
if every VS heavy ran this VS would be the most oppressive faction. The Lancer is the most underappreciated AV weapon in the game, a handful of heavies with it can snap kill or drive away all vehicle and a2g threats in LoS. The Obelisk is similar, but better. It's a flawless weapon.
Rotate implant slot for the situation, most common implant I would use is Sidewinder.
Medic VS
Shield recharge
Lacerta (or Obelisk)
Underboss
Rotate implant etc. Medic is for revive and shield recharge support.
Infil VS
Obelisk
Underboss
Infils are for sensor and occasional hacking, invaluable but no reason to have a lots of them.

When you understand that 50% of your fights are against a faction that doesn't actually see the game beyond sprint, spray, die, revive, spam vehicles, weapon readiness means everything. When you understand that the other 50% of your fights are against a faction that you need to out-alpha headshot, pinpoint accuracy while moving means everything. To maximize VS, slow your roll to ADS speed, stay aware, aim good. If you don't have the discipline for that, don't have the aim, play the sprint, spray, die, revive faction.
>>
>>930608
bum rushing with viper is more effective then it deserves to be
>>
>>932459
The lancer needing an organized squad dedicated to it in a chaotic game like planetside is a bit of a detriment I'd say, but then, a singular rocket launcher already fails to kill vehicles
>>
>>932462
Bad vanu go away.
It doesn't need an organized squad at all. It's very close to a point and click weapon, even one in the hands of one heavy it's very powerful, but in any mass of HA, even disorganized, it's game-alteringly strong.
>>
>>930608
>How do I deal with vehicles?
As a single man your options are limited, but the best way to confirm kills on tanks as a solo player is to sneak up behind them with C4, usually with light assault to get the flank. Tanks love to be sedentary sacks of shit and sit in one place farming, so this is easier than it sounds. It also pisses them off because vehicle players universally have massive egos
>How do I be a tank chad
If you're looking to play counter-tank you want your tank's AP cannon and their best anti vehicle top gun, which is usually still solid at killing infantry because this is planetside. I don't know if they've changed it since last I played but in the past, MBTs could only be spawned at bases outside the warpgate (at tank terminals) if you have a connecting tech plant.

Lightnings aren't worthless but an AP MBT will be infinitely more effective at killing heavy armor. .
>>
>>932467
I'm NC. I'm aware that lancers are hypothetically the best shit in the game, but I rarely see lancers used effectively, they're more irritating than anything else. Getting people to cooperate in PS is already a challenge, getting people to focus a single target unless it's something glaringly obvious like a galaxy is another
>>
>>930025
PS1 is just slightly more janky early Battlefield with a ton of fun experimental shit behind it. It's fine.

PS2 might be more fun as a shooter but it also discarded the experimental shit in the process for the most part.

Played it again tonight for like the first time in 5 years, had like 2500 certs to blow, got my prowler back to a good chasis and AP rounds and had fun rollin around. (Still have 1k saved cause not sure what I wanna buy).

I got to use someone elses anti infantry round prowler but the splash on it felt weak and shitty.

Almost won an alert with like 5 seconds left on a cap but failed.

It got changed so it doesn't block damage from normal guns and is now useless. Meta infantry implant is probably flak armour, ASC, or grenade bandolier.

im sick of them. how do i remove them as infantry as reliably as posible?
>>
>>933100
hahahahahaha good 1

air vehicles have been slowly buffed to the point where an infantryman killing them alone is a complete joke. you can hit one with a decimator, the painfully slow anti-tank rocket and they can STILL survive it now. once upon a time a default rocket would be enough. I have no fucking idea why they did this when A2G has been horrifically oppressive since launch

if you want to prevent ESF swarms, burstermax is pretty effective at deterring (but not killing lmao) them. There's essentially nothing a solo infantryman can do against liberators and galaxies unless they've landed and can be hit with C4.
>>
>>933100
lancer if VS is king

for easier shit to use
masthead if NC
defector hummingbirds are good now
striker for TR
the default ground to air lock ons got super buffed to the point it's killing a2a combat due to how easy it is to pick up kills with em

if you REALLY want to be cancer use a ranger harasser, it's the best "bang for your buck" when it comes to anti air, cheap and more powerful then pretty much any other options. you can swap between driving and shooting while it reloads

skyguard is a waste of certs btw dont get memed, and also don't listen to the retard saying burster max, it's just as bad as skyguard for way too many nanites with the only benefit being you can tickle people from behind spawn shields which no good pilots will allow you to do anyway

for libtards and whales the reason a solo infantryman struggles so much against them is because those cost a ton of nanites and require 2-3+ players to be properly utilized, though a lone warrior with the default esf nosegun and 100 hours learning to fly in vr training wont struggle as much
>>
>>933118
Isn't the ranger just obnoxious more than dangerous like most flak or does having it on the harasser make that much of a difference?

>>
>>933342
You mean what nobody GOOD ever runs. Of course, good players also aren't firing 60m/s decimators at 320m/s fighter jets.
>>
>>933346
I think even bad players realize "hmm 300 more HP to barely survive a single rocket type that I rarely see unless i'm being an actual idiot hovering perfectly still for long periods of time, but I can't auto-repair is probably a bad idea"

They'll also be too shit to actually a2g properly assuming they even know how to fly, and wont be an issue in a fight.
>>
>>933351
I don't know how much skill you think breaker pods takes but it's not a lot.
>>
>>933354
Less skill than it takes to actually fly and hover, which brings me to my point about "bad players"

And how often do decimators get shot at ESFs unless they're being exceptionally retarded about camping a doorway?
Do you think these ESFs hovering perfectly still in plain sight are at full HP always?
Do you think composite armor is THAT good of a tradeoff for HP regen to counter all the small arms damage, delaying lockons, and hiding off the radar of people who don't look up and other A2A ESFs?
Do you think that even with all of the above, you should still get the 1-hit kill when someone specifically goes out of their way to pick a loadout just to counter you?

Are you still upset that it happened to you once ever, and you haven't played the game since so all you do is spout nonsense here?
>>
>>933358
Cool your autism, mr ace pilto. The post said "can survive". And they can survive. Used to be the default rocket launchers were a one hit kill on an ESF because if you got hit with a shrike, you got way way too cocky or stupid. Now you can shrug it off.

I shouldn't NEED a decimator to kill an ESF. But every other rocket is slower than their afterburner speed so you will never get a second hit.

mfw all the people jumping at the thought of a 200 nanite rocket launcher
mfw i bait everybody into actually shooting it before popping flares
>>
the biggest issue planetside faces is the theoretical maximum game play level or literally anything in the game is so much higher then baseline skill for the average player/newbies that balancing becomes moot when a top 1% player is worth literally 100 bottom 90% players
"750 nanites to remove aircraft" launcher wouldn't even be super effective against decent pilots who would still chew up infantry thanks to knowing how out loop missiles in the air and fly them into terrain when near the ground

this is the same reason why VS has such a high alert winrate despite weaker equipment and lower pop at least on emerald; they also have some of the best players in the game and have for years. this created a feedback loop where players who got good went vs to play with other good players and so on and so forth. nerfs come to in deal with them but ultimately hurt the faction for the average run of the mill players while the top players are hardly effected by it

think of it like a land tax law that kills a local restaurant but a multinational chain can live on cause they are just so much "better" already and can afford it >food analogy except it's new/average players get fucked by balance while top dogs carry un almost un affected

vs emerald is probably the biggest example but it applies to all factions to some extent, a player with 2000 hours on a fresh account will look like a cheater compared to the other low brs hence the hackusations running far more rampant then is actually real

this also leads to why the pay to win argument is so prevalent among the unwashed masses, they get demolished and see $10 price tags on guns in the shop and assume the worst. I unironically believe it would be healthier and more profitable for the game if they REMOVED the option to buy guns with real money, cause all it does is make shit look worse then it actually is and if a player is around long enough to learn they feel like they wasted money if they actually caved on it
>>
>>933554
follow up: there is no real solution to a game being old enough to reach this level of skill gap outside of sbmm which fucking sucks for a number of reasons and simply isnt compatible with planetside as a game
it kinda falls on the community but like hell you can convince anyone to play worse on purpose like i for sure wont despite being a 2kd shitter who is often hackused or called p2w by newbies

the argument for a planetside 3 to clean the slate is also bad cause there is now fucking way a planetside 3 would be a good game, everyone knows how bad the gaming industry is right now and having hopium on any level is delusion.
planetside 2 despite it's flaws in in a decent state and can certainly work it's up up and onward and the recent update is actually a great example of that
new player retention is a bitch but it's certainly better now then ever before and little things can go a long way, even if the little thing is a vet telling a new player to aim better

It is a damn shame that the only rocket that's faster than the thing it's trying to hit is ES
>>
>>933619
That's how all rocket launchers should perform. Having to lead the entire width of your crosshair at spitting distance like that isn't "borderline hitscan", it's just leagues better than the fucking tennis balls the rest of us are throwing.

NSO's anti-air launcher goes 50m/s. The real life world record baseball pitch is 47m/s.
>>
>>933342
I used to run Decimator largely specifically because it carried the potential of nabbing an instant kill on an ESF and that's the only way anyone solo on the ground is killing them. A lot of ESFs just hover around trying to lazily farm infantry so it could be surprisingly effective.

It really doesn't matter how often a "good" player will run different equipment- a properly good ESF player will probably never be hit with a dumbfire because rockets are painfully slow. But considering how hard it is to make those shots, why the fuck can ESFs survive them? What is the point of giving them a slap on the wrist for eating an anti-tank rocket when the rocket requires you to fuck up that bad to get hit anyway?

Despite tankers' best efforts C4 still basically guarantees a kill on prowlers thanks to the rocklet rifle. Why do plane men get to ignore their mistakes?

>Despite tankers' best efforts C4 still basically guarantees a kill on prowlers thanks to the rocklet rifle.
*hops out of the vanguard and shoots you because you're stuck in either the C4 animation or rockelet animation and are a free kill*

they also get to basically ignore you with Flanker Armor, but nobody runs that because its objectively worse than other options just like Composite armor, except C4 fairies are much more common and any retard can drive a tank so you see a lot more of both.

>>933636
Slide the goalpost more eventually you'll find a gotcha
>>
>>933635
>objectively bad
Bullshit. It's the only thing you can't fire suppression and run off behind a mountain to repair against.
>>
>>933638
I like pretending to be a c4 fairy but keeping my shotgun ready for when they exit. Sometimes it even works.
>>
>>933635
the default launcher won't even set them on fire at the current state of things.

I think you're also really exaggerating how bad composite armor is. A health bump is fine. Nanite armor is better if you're not an engineer, sure. Stealth is handy against lock-ons, sure. But more health isn't going to hurt and it provides a cushion to poor air players that really shouldn't be there in the first place.
>>
>>933100
This may not be the best advice since im returning and havnt played in ages.
I still have a heavy profile I swap to which uses swarm rockets as terran. Each shot does less damage than a standard homing rocket, but the point is the first one can bait out flares, or pilots who get one rocket caught on a terrain spire might still take 2 hits. It usually doesn't kill anything by itself. Its just there for sustained damage to make them go away or possibly assist others.

I also have a skyguard. Nanites replenish pretty fast as long as you arent spamming nades, mines, c4, etc. Skyguard today performed very well at outright getting some kills and tons of assists. Just take it to an area with friendly air and armor. It takes some practice to get good with leading shots and tracking, so it does feel like it has less range than it appears.
>>
>>933639
>fire suppression
Oh no here comes the strikers and lockons brrrrrr wish you had flares now after eating a deci to the nose and having less than 200 hp left, actually flares do nothing against NC mastheads so even that's a joke. Between small arms chip damage and everything else going on at a base, that extra 300 HP from composite does fuck all, honestly.

You're still hung up that it happened to you once that you pissed your pants and refuse to change them ever since.
>>
>>933643
>stealth is handy against lock ons
tell me you never tried flying without saying you never tried flying
stealth might as well not have anything against lock on and it would still be best cuz it's real strength is removing the minimap auto detect and nullifying engagement radars
>>
>>933554
Skill influence isn't that stark. Effective use of population is everything. Vast majority of Emerald VS still sprint corners to jam doorways, it's just a better use of population than whatever jackoff idiocy TR leadership comes up with. NC performs very close to VS on Emerald and I can't recall a day they made a clever move on the lattice, so it's almost pure shootin' and tootin' that gets them there. Skill only goes as far as population, you can see cheaterfits get swept by marginal pop disadvantages all the time, and skilled players are a lot less concentrated than a cheaterfit. The "baseline" skill level for a functional base-holding and base-tanking infantryplanetman goes only about as far as his general familiarity with environmental awareness and point and click with his gun.
>>
>>933648
Works on hossin and certain bases. Every time you pass by a tree limb or random radar spire sticking out of a base they have to spend even longer waiting for that lock. It also reduces the range Striker shots and Coyotes home in on you

>>933643
>I think you're also really exaggerating how bad composite armor is.
Numerically "more HP" is never a bad choice.

But when you compare to "Fly behind a mountain and repair to full while staying LA so you can bail out of a bad situation to C4 a tank/skyguard/sundy/point hold/whatever"
or "Be invisible on the map so the people you're about to shit on with rockets don't know until its too late and cause the one asspained burster max to waste time running between spawn doors trying to figure out where you are"
Theres an obvious choice to be made here.

The real issue is the fucking l33t 10kdr heavy mains never look up as the class who primarily has the tools to deal with these kinds of situations.
That's partially why the Masthead is so OP because its on the fucking engineer, who is usually not played by braindead infantry farmer mains and will in fact look up.
>>
>>933645
bruh you can literally outrun all that shit.
>>
>>933656
Sorry in this theoretical situation the retard ESF is hovering with their nose pointed inside of a base to A2G a doorway specifically with composite armor specifically to counter the one guy he knows is in there with a Deci that will pop out and shoot at him with it
>>
>>933619
Really wish I could force all VS to use the Lancer instead of other Launchers. A single Lancer isn't that remarkable compared to a lock-on vs. aircraft, on average, it probably misses more often than a pilot counters a lock-on with flares and uses landscape. However, the Lancer gives pilots essentially no chance at counterplay, it's less visible and gives less warning than all other forms of AA, and in numbers, enough lancers come out to make those progressive anal prolapsers called Reaver A2G farmers disappear for good even when you account for all the missed shots. This isn't even where the Lancer is supposed to be good, it just is as a side benefit, because the Lancer in numbers is even better at just deleting all land vehicles in LoS. Lock-ons are also superior at taking over A2A ESF engagements, but VS ESF shouldn't be in the air anyway, so it really works for the faction.
>>
>>933658
well, as soon as you mash F, you've gone from 200 hp to 600, and will recover 750 more before the deci guy can swap weapons or reload. you can say nobody runs that shit as much as you want, but they do, and it works.
>>
>>933638
I've blown up thousands of tanks with C4 and I think I think can count on one hand the amount of times getting out of the tank has worked out for the tanker on one hand. The counter to beating C4 light assault is to be aware of your surroundings and drive away from them to either kill or let your gunner kill them, not to slowly get out of the tank in that one predictable spot and try shooting them while they're already on top of you.

Point is that bad Tankers complained for ages about how they shouldn't be allowed to be instantly killed by C4 and they got what they wanted, but LA got the rocklet rifle, which allows them to pull it off easily enough even with flanker armor. I don't even remember bad pilots complaining about being instakilled by dumbfires but at some point they decided planes should have the option to ignore both.

I don't like it when there's nothing a solo player could possibly do to solo destroy a vehicle regardless of the mistakes the other guy makes. Liberators and Galaxies are oppressive but sure, they take multiple people to crew. an ESF is cheaper than an MBT, crewed by one guy, but for some reason many times more difficult for an infantryman to meaningfully deal with.
>>
I wish this game had looting. I would hoard lancers.
>>
>>933664
>not to slowly get out of the tank
do you


do you really think this

how many levels of cope are you on right now my man
yes i've killed thousands of tanks myself with C4 because the majority of tankers are fucking idiots
then you get the 1% tank main who you will never get a C4 off on by yourself

similarly
you will get the 1% retard running composite armor who eats your deci

>>
>>933671
>the majority of tankers are fucking idiots
exactly
idiots should be allowed to be punished for their mistakes by a single player

idiots, the type of people who are going to hover in base brainlessly farming infantry, are going to run composite armor because it allows them to cover what is patently a bad fucking idea that could actually get them instantly killed if they were running more meta equipment

a good tanker will not allow you to get C4 on them at all, so it's stupid to allow tankers to cover for the possibility where they do get hit by C4. It is their problem.

A good pilot will not allow you to hit them with a rocket so it's stupid to allow them to cover for the situation. They do not need the help
>>
>>933679
If they're an idiot then flanker wont save them
If they're an idiot then composite wont save them

they'll do something else retarded and still die

you're comparing idiot crutches to good players when the two never intersect
>>
>>933681
>if they're an idiot flanker won't save them
thanks to the rocklet rifle yes because light assault can conceivably do the damage to destroy it afterwards, as can heavy with a rocket. Medic has more trouble but I don't think anyone earnestly uses medic for anti tank anyway
>if they're an idiot then composite wont save them
you're wrong, because any option a single player has is not fast enough to prevent them from popping fire suppression and escaping.

composite armour's okay on hornet, wyrm, or tomcat esfs if you're not a gigantic faggot (la/heavy/infil) because it stops ap and dalton as well as decimator shots.

of course, if you're playing infantry you don't give a fuck about someone 1v1ing a liberator or bullying tanks.
>>
>>933688
So who has the bigger skill issue here, the idiot holding still or your entire faction for not even hitting the stationary ESF with small arms from random angles while its doing that

>>933690

>>
>>933694
people often don't bother trying to fuck with ESFs because it's usually just not rewarding, lol. You spend your time trying to do damage with anything and if you're successful it comes back in a minute.

also the point from the start is that a solo player should be able to kill a dumb ESF player easily when a solo player can kill a dumb tank player easily. it is not a based gigachad play to pop fire suppression and leave once the dumbfire hits you it's automatic. It is also WAY harder to hit a dumbfire on even a poorly flying, hovering player than it is to position yourself behind a distracted, farming tank-dad and blow them up yet the latter gives you way more reward than the former
>>
>>933661
Lancer has nothing to do with it, any weapon in numbers fucking shreds. Case in point: faction specific amrs. People would like you to believe that masthead is the problematic one, but I ran a squadful of engies with dagrs the other day, driving around indar and deleting mbts in seconds from safe distance. Another weapon that absolutely FUCKS vehicles is godsaw in ap mode, but you are unlikely to get enough people with it.
Lancer's problem is that it has been outclassed ever since the introduction of amrs, not to mention the retarded gimmick with charging and not being able to hold the charge forever, wherever the regular rocket launchers are fire and forget. If it was reworked so you could precharge and holster it then it could be a viable option.
>>
>>933705
Its a team game. Get 2 other dudes to swat the ESF out of the sky with an infantry based weapon which has unlimited ammo.
>>
>>933708
>but I ran a squadful of engies with dagrs the other day, driving around indar and deleting mbts in seconds from safe distance
You would unironically do this faster with Archers.
DAGR doesn't win the damage race until 2 reloads deep and if you delay or stop firing for any reason, the Archer climbs back ahead almost instantly. DAGR shines better solo against something that cannot get out of LOS like a bastion belly node, colossus, or parked sundy.

Also godsaw is a pretty shit comparison because of the intense grind to even get there.
>>
>>933694
>So who has the bigger skill issue here, the idiot holding still or your entire faction for not even hitting the stationary ESF with small arms from random angles while its doing that

Theorycraft all you want about how 20 people should act, this shit happens in real gameplay.
>>
>>933711
>its a team game
and yet the ESF, piloted by a single guy not playing as a team, simply gets to avoid punishment by a fellow single player unless they're also in a vehicle

if the ESF were a multi-crewed vehicle I could concede that it makes sense but I just don't like the notion of a solo player having no options to deal with something. again, the ESF is a solo vehicle cheaper than a tank that's way harder to deal with than a tank.
>>
>>933716
>this shit happens in real gameplay.
I'm sure you regularly run into the 1 a2g guy with composite armor while you have your deci out.

squad is the only game that got AA and AT properly.

any of you guys play during the initial planetside 2 technical test? Remember when the Liberator had the Zephyr by default and not the fucking shredder with a tiny unupgraded mag?

It was like realizing what was going to kill the game in that exact moment
>>
>>933719
I don't have a deci but I do run into ESFs that camp in front of a door, take a dumbfire to the face, and run off to repair. Most players have given up even shooting at the things.
>>
>>933724
>I don't have a deci
Then you have zero stake in this argument that started from one pisspants retard with a misleading blanket statement that ESFs can survive deci shots.

If you're G2A farming infantry, you're not going to jump out of your ESF to plant C4 on shit. So you're going to be engineer. So you're going to have aircraft synergy, and you won't actually need auto repair. And only absolute shitters run flares because you don't even need afterburners to outrun every lock on in the game, assuming you aren't able to just duck behind a tree for 1/10th of a second to break their lock.

Frankly composite armor is the ONLY slot you should be running.
>>
>>933730
composite shares a slot with stealth and nanite auto repair as a defensive option, not with flares and afterburner

I would argue composite is best for A2G farming, though. If you're fighting other air vehicles sure you want engagement radar nullified so you can jump people but that barely matters if you're just blowing people up uncontested
>>
Its hilarious listening to infantry mains play up how strong vehicles are.
>>
>>933734
unironically the best was to learn to counter anything in any game ever is to use it but people refuse to learn this
>>
>>933730
>Frankly composite armor is the ONLY slot you should be running.
Forgetting stealth there so you don't even show up on radar? So the people trying to counter you have to look up and look for you? Increased lockon time to reset it behind a random tree branch?
>>
>>933737
Seeing you on radar isn't going to change their ability to fight back. You're in the sky, they can see you. Not a lot else up there.
>>
>>933739
Then I sweep across the back of the base while repositioning and you spend more time running to each door to look for me.

>no you don't get it, my 50 kill streak was ended by some guy with C4, so they're fine, a little strong, I guess
Vehicles are strong in almost every combined arms game because they ask you to coordinate against them in games most people play casually. "just learn the counterplay bro lol" people say as a single competent vehicle player goes 93-0 because the other people in the server have the audacity to play solo today
people are so protective of their wack-ass ace combat fantasies, too. vehicle mains in combined arms games have such massive egos (because they're used to racking up ungodly killstreaks because vehicles are overpowered and offer too much reward too easily against uncoordinated teams,) too.

I will literally never forget the time I told a friendly tank player that if he didn't want to get blown up by "bullshit" C4 maybe he should just drive away and in the next minute he found me in the base, singled me out, and teamkilled me. mans was that offended that I told him dying in his armored death chariot was actually his own fault.

I thought Heavy was overtuned at first as by far the best solo class but it's gotten a little better over time. Even still, 0.75 LMG Heavy being dominant was obnoxious, but you could still shoot him in the head and kill him as other classes if you have any kind of advantage in the firefight. You're not killing a good vehicle player as infantry most of the time.

man a few hours ago i saw what might be the first time my only explanation was "haxxor" in the last 1000 hours of play time when the guy i was shooting from a roof shot out my shields, 180'd in so fast I'm pretty sure it was literally 1 frame to kill a dude drop podding behind him then back around to finish me off while I was reloading ( assumed he was occupied and was starting to retreat)
in the death cam he snapped around like that again to a nearby infilshitter but was out of ammo and died with a medkit in his hand
the reason it has stuck with me is my mind never jumps to "cheater" in regards to players like that, he was an asp leetfit heavy salt, but for once what he was doing was SO cracked I cannot wrap my head around a legit player doing that, even factoring in packet rate, high skill cap and the players he was shooting being shitters in comparison
my mind while busting a fat deuce was flooded with memories of all the times alleged ex leetfitters would "expose" the big names in planetside esports over the years with claims that a lot of them are just cheating and get away with it cause they are all massive whales so devs give em a pass for the income
honestly I don't know if I care if it's true or not, if anything I'd rather it stay under wraps if it is true cause if there was solid proof or a banwave for a bunch of the top players akin to sniper mains in tf2 comp getting vac'd en masse after years of denial and calling people shitters I would probably quit the game along with them cause all those hours of trying to beat players who seemed too pro for me not even being legit would be soul crushing. as it stands I can remain ignorant and continue playing with a sound mind, never knowing for sure. kinda like how in real life it's easier to pretend the panama papers or little st james dont mean anything in order to stay sane
thank you for reading my blog
>>
>>934051
Name me
>>
>>934051
and for benefit of the doubt sake, he could have had coms tell him a drop pod was landing behind or heard it overhead and made a good guess, same with the infil who had a recon dart gun in his hand he could have heard
but the reaction rim and speed at which he executed those dudes between shooting out my shields and finishing me off, on top of the context of whipping around like that while I was shooting is just nuts, I WAS out of ammo but not until the drop podder was dead (I whiffed my shots) so I hesitate to say he stopped shooting me cause he knew I couldn't shoot back unless he went off the low ammo shooting sound and assumed I would miss the last two shots

>>
>>934051
Lots of people in this game have been cheating for years. I'm 100% sure there is a mod to just snap to whoever just shot you on reaction and blast them.

But lots of people don't. And there's only so much a hacker can do without breaking the game in obvious ways. Don't worry about it.
>>

its the worst kept secret in the world that probably about 10% of the playerbase are hacking to some degree at any given time. flying maxes and people blasting you through walls are obvious and get banned but its hardly the ONLY way to hack. superhuman 1 frame 180 tripple headshots like you saw are suprisingly common, and there's plenty of more subtle stuff like wall hacks, increasing the size of head or body hitboxes, flipping on a lag switch and even just having a bot jump or reload every few seconds so you can idle in a spawn tube.

you dont have to quit the game over it, you can still have a lot of fun, just dont hold yourself to some impossible standard just because probably half the people with 4k/d got there illegitimately. people that good really do exist, so its more like you're competing against an artificially high number of pros

yesterday I spawned to fight and the sunderer I spawned at I hopped in for 2 seconds to use its turret. when I jumped out it put me under the terrain and I was falling. I redeployed I think to escape.
few mins later I got shot through a mountain by a base turret, then again by a sniper.

There's some cheaters, but not that many. I record evidence and send it in, and they quietly disappear. Honestly, being an evidence hunter has shown me the difference between skill vs. cheater very clearly, and the cheaters are never anywhere near as slick as they think they are. The banned cheaters probably just make a new account, but these are lousy people, and any amount of ego damage gets to them. A banwave would be fun, but unnecesary as cheating does get capped and it's really not anywhere rampant as I think a lot of people are afraid of. Extreme cheating- teleporting, flying, etc. gets answered very quickly, while the others who try to hide their cheating eventually have to hide it so hard they actually get outdone by just a skilled player.

Sometimes I get retardedly lucky and just spray in some dude's direction to harass him or make him run for cover and waste time but I get two RNG headshots in a row instantly and down him.

Its fucking garbage at first but eventually you get the hang of it. Definitely not a front line weapon since it has a minimum 40m distance. Just plop down a personal marker where you want to bombard and try and get a good angle where you don't have to aim too high, but high enough to get a decent spread.

No VS player would EVER use the Betelgeuse, right anon?

Also, the VS get really cucked on medium range assault rifles. The only ones I like are the H-V45 and termie, but they're both CQC. The lacerta's okay at long range but sucks indoors. Meanwhile the TR get the cycler and torq, and NC get the gauss rifle and reaper.
>>
>>934538
They shouldn't use the Betelgeuse. No reason to use the LMG on VS. Lacerta is better at all ranges for Assault Rifles, its effective RPM in the first two bursts is way higher than its damage profile should allow

>>934658
ah yes, every single player should invest an ASP point into the Lacerta instead of ever using the Betelgeuse on their heavy

You literally can in most cases, or maybe that was just something all my years playing Tribes taught me.

Anyway theres nothing special about most launchers, theres a single faction meme and they're quite specifically specal use memes unless you're VS.
TR: Really good close range homing anti-air
NC: Camera guided meme that lets you harass basically any hiding ground vehicle but too weak to really kill shit alone unless its completely undefended
VS: A fucking incredible laser that 90% of the population ignores because its not the Decimator

if a vehicle other than a harasser actively dodges your rocket then it's outside engagement range, dont worry about it
if you just plain miss git gud

how do you kill sunderers reliably as a solo player? I'm trying the boost forward light assault jetpack and flanking for c4, but its inconsistent and if people are waiting you just get killed.
wish infiltrator had something against vehicles. its the perfect class for c4 but they didn't give it to them
>>
>>935733
C4 Typhoon explosive hunter AV knife
Engineer Flash AV mines shoot mines
>>
>>935733
AV tank shots from a distance is the most reliable method of killing sunderers in any situation.
>>
>>935733
>LA
Work on your approaches, if its an open field sundy, try drifter jetting far far above it and rain C4 down. Sundies take 2 C4 and 2 Rockelet shots to kill if completely undefended and no dumbass shield. If it has a shield, shoot it down with the rockelet first or you just waste C4.
>Engineer
Slower and more vulnerable, but 3 tank mines is a death sentence, mine carrier for shielded. Shoot the mines to detonate them or throw a sticky grenade on it. RIP your nanites though.

Alternatively, circle around as far as you reasonably can (there is a distance limit) and plop down an AV Mana Turret. Basically a tank turret in a box. You're extremely vulnerable to snipers this way so try to limit how easily they can see you, angle the missile around a tree/corner as much as you're able to.
>HA
Basically too slow to matter, only good for Deci/AV grenade comboing tanks.
>Infil
The hand crossbow secondary has explosive darts which DO vehicle damage, if you find one undefended you can eventually take one out from a reasonable distance.

Otherwise, learn to tonk, don't get too close or you'll get C4 fairies on you.
For a real wombo combo, learn to fly an A2G ESF, soften the sunderer up until you're about to blow up then bail out and drop C4 on it to finish it off, very rarely people will see this coming and be able to stop you but you gotta be fast with the followup C4 after ejecting to position yourself in a good spot.

while all of this can work, as they are AV options, just pulling a vanguard, lightning, or prowler and shelling from a distance will do it better. One man in a lightning can outdo 3 infantry trying to protect the sunderer.

Ambusher jets are good for this. Seems to me they're better at being escape jets than ambush jets.

Not great but not as bad as I thought. A full load into the side/ass of a vanguard + swap to deci and if you're a real gamer, AV nade. Its basically unzipping your entire inventory on someone's butthole but it works.
>>
>>935964
I feel like I'm the REAL reason why the ANT C-Cloak was removed. They hadn't acted like the invisible bus mower of doom was ever an actual toxic problem, then starting about 6 weeks before the PTS notes, I had Logistics Specialist respawns in the ANT to drop off 3 of my buddies with HA loadouts of thumper, AV nade, deci, they'd just suicide their inventory on a sundy and get the kill. With just a single nade, it was basically nanite free, and our gimmick little 4 man squad would completely disable entire faction offenses during prime time alerts.

get good. if they need to counter you with a vehicle of their own or you can't position to hit the sunderer before they can get shots on you with infantry you weren't going to kill the sunderer anyway. the vulnerability of sunderers to a single tank is a notoriously common complaint, to the point that they created the sunderer garage shield mechanic in response

Obelisk, Horizon, Lacerta, Lancer, Lasher occasionally, you can play with any of the directive heat weapons if you have the patience to grind it.

VS weapons are impotent. No advantage in accuracy, RoF, damage, DPM, or muzzle velocity. They have one gimmick that is the excuse to give the other factions all the weapon stats; no bullet drop. Vanu ability to put effective damage out on moving targets or point hold is blatantly inferior to the other two factions.
The good weapons usual pair up a new gimmick with the no bullet drop, and the second "bonus" faction gimmick of Vanu; heat-based ammunition. The Obelisk is totally absurd, vanu should be worshipping it. The only downside is that a battle rifle is inherently not a run and spray weapon, which is the ungabunga floor of PS2.
That's where the Horizon comes in. The Obelisk might have /everything/, so the Horizon seems to be just a 168 dpr profile carbine- until you realize that it bought perfect hipfire accuracy on the move (or airborne) for a tiny two pellet spread "penalty." Tight enough to group the two pellets on a head out to 20m, and the double hits cause extra screen shake if you opponent wasn't already getting blown away by the absurdity of that kind of TTK from a moving hipfire. It's the champion of accurate sprint and spray. Remember to weave in the short reload of 1.6 seconds, it's got a very small magazine.

The two classes that can use the Lacerta could also just use the Obelisk. It doesn't use the heat mechanic, slower muzzle velocity, and isn't point and click. Here's the secret; its listed RPM is 566- true, if averaged over a minute. Its burst RPM is 1000. Imagine if NC was getting a 163 dpr weapon at 1000 rpm, no first shot recoil or practical recoil at all, no bullet drop, and just to be sure, 3 extra rounds of ammo per mag- the salt. It's "secretly" the most over-statted infantry weapon in the game, with maybe the fastest TTK possible on an automatic weapon.

No, and no, I don't want to spend the time on why LMGs are a waste of your time in spandex even though its true the Maw Betelgeuse Orion rank top 3 in that order, and extra higby no.

The Lacerta- this is so dumb- stop talking shit about the Lacerta. Let's go full CQC with it; first, let's get it out there that it runs laser sight on it because it doesn't need any kind of other attachment bonus; and because you're this dumbass noskill that's blasting a heavies overshielded torso; the Lacerta still beasts with the fastest TTK of any AR in that situation at 0.5s, the next best being Cycler TRV's 0.728s, a full 0.228s difference. It is difficult to accurately frame how far ahead the Lacerta is. If you cannot manage headshots at any range, you will still lose, but you can't make up for it with a different weapon. If you really have to rely on landing your shots solely by the RNG spray finding the mark for you as you wildly drag your reticule over an enemy that even the Lacerta throws you away, you are a desperate case and just needs to play TR with KCAP ammo and the highest damage per magazine weapon you can find while praying for the gods of brrrrrrrrt to bless you.

how it should have been.
MBT is a two person operated vehicle minimum.
>>
reminder that a walker MBT is a better skyguard than the skyguard because the walker wont miss 80%+ of its shots at average ESF distance
at the ranges where the skyguard does its fucking job you may as well just have an eagle eye with an AP lightning do it
ESF shitters whined until it got nerfed into the ground and now it's fucking useless

if you're part of an armor column and someone offers to pull a skyguard when anti-air is requested tell that man to gun a walker instead
rangers also suck at hitting distant targets, flak be damned, bullet velocity is god when you're flyswatting

It's only good vs libs/gals and good vs most ground shit but gun elevation fucks it over
>>
>>938250
>rangers also suck at hitting distant targets, flak be damned, bullet velocity is god when you're flyswatting
it's better if A) your gunner is a very good shot and B) after the first shot lands the ESF doesn't make any evasive maneuvers and continues on their current heading so his leading of the target remains valid

so only better against libs/gals
>>
4 walkers is the point where a harasser squad can reliably kill everything unsupported by a repair sundy by just keeping at distance, peeling off to repair and keeping up the volume of fire
course you really need 5-6 walker harassers because you can't expect all the guns to have a good firing solution at all times

and every ESF in the area is dead on arrival
Libs can't land enough dalton shots to take out a single harasser before they get shredded unless they catch one of you mid-repair
gals aren't even in consideration

one to a squad makes immediate sense, lodestar, instant basebuilding to redeploy the squads harassers when wiped without needing an inf to hack a vehicle terminal and a few other helpful functions
but all of a squad is gonna struggle to retain cortium for boosting if they're competing for 6 full tanks as they go and overuse of boost is preferred for the sake of maxing out kill/point farming

good call regardless
>>
>>938268
you can keep it off. but i'm told that only affects you clientside, enemies can still see it.
>>
>>938226
I'm not. All four classes are critical, and the engineer obviously has its place. HA is core, Infiltrator's because of their sensor tools and being able to project threat from anywhere well outside of cover, Combat Medic is obviously core, and the LA meta of rushing at gunfire for cleanup kills.
Seen some real shitter platoons lately where all I see are garbagetrash Combat Medic spam who can't shoot and frustrated platoon leaders crying about insufficient rez grenades, when what they really should have had was a single fucking sensor dart spammer giving everybody intel on enemy position of the counterplatoon and some HA and Infils who could actually make heads catch bullets at good angles because they actually know some basics about angles and peeking.
These same shitters are the sprint everywhere and die type.
Stopping the sprint up to just before a corner or a doorway, literally being the worst place to be walking as it's now moving as slowly as possible in the exact place the enemy is looking for your head.
But its all moot, the guy talking about gitting gud and reacting to damage in time was playing with 270ms and that's just impossible to work with in infantry vs. infantry engagements.

>>938279
kdr is highly overrated. I think KPM is a better metric, but the real power is being part of something that destabilizes a position. I personally love playing the biggest brain flank or something similar that destroys a group because you get to take out multiple people at once in short order to the point that the combat medic class is made useless. If that means you have to sacrifice yourself to a couple of exploratory deaths or even take a KPM loss by scoring no kills for a couple minutes to make it happen, I think it's worth it.
>>
>>937596
>>938233
They should make empire specific lightning tank chassis/body options for lightings, ie. maglev fixed turret lightning, lockdown brrrrt lightning, boom lightning to make way for the solo tank players, then reintroduce the MBTs as all two man minimum, three man options vehicles with justified firepower in the main gunner spot and a dedicated driver.
>>
>>938688
killing two people as a medic, one a mutual death, while your revive grenade pulls the entire squad back up to secure a point is the greatest feeling of achievement
I dont feel like I've done that much real work when I flank and get a bounty life wiping the point as LA, probably because of just how often a medic kills me before their revive grenade undoes it all

nah we don't even know how lucky we've been to have such dedication to a game this old.

As for wrel leaving, I think 7 years is a healthy amount of time to have people rotate on a major project, it only makes sense.

I never fully bought in to the narrative literally everything bad was his fault, saw it more like how whenever something bad happens in america it's current standing presidents fault even if it had nothing to do with them. Yeah he certainly made some weird choices like the youtuber circlejerk 'cord dictating balance changes and who can forget the "suck muh nuts, [N]' post which might be the best rage tell of all time but when he took over planetside was in maint mode and the most recent "updates" added the ravenous and heatwave weapons.
Most players eemed to have memory holed it but the hype from the idea of a youtuber saying "hire me and I'll fix the game" and the devs replying with "okay" alone did wonders for the player count also was better then any advertising or lack thereof the game has had
and in turn led to the game regularly receiving REAL content updates again.
I don't hate the man, but like other anon said he's been there for a long time and it makes sense for him to move on.

Of course if he was indeed fired for leaking shit and being too friendly with certain sides of the community then good riddance, I will be using this as yet another example of why I believe dev interaction is actually BAD for video games and their communities.

Construction thoughts. It's had time to marinate.

Walls suck. Walls get niche use only. Ignore them.
A good offense is the best defense.
AV tower turret is the winner. Ignore the other turret types. Teach your faction the idea of everyone placing their own turret at the edge of the radius of the last guys turret, constantly encroaching towards the enemy.
Just 4 AV turrets can be a critical mass. Things just get deleted.
Someone is going to get the flail. It's right up there with AV turrets, but there can be only one.
Same with the orbital uplink.
Spawn room is used literally just because it can get a fortress module and skyshield module.
Again, walls suck. The narrow bulwark walls, blast walls, or blast gates can be used interchangably to block off the silo on a couple sides so you don't have to react as quickly with a fortress module if there's some cheeky shelling, but it's usually unnecessary. Walls just don't justify their cost in cortium, usually provide as much cover to the enemy as they do for you, and as such just generally suck.
Screw vehicle pads too. Someone is going to end up putting one down, but they're just infiltrator magnets that spawn enemy vehicles with the silo's cortium dangerously next to all the stuff that's so vulnerable to vehicles. You won't be able to enforce it, but little pocket base somewhere else with a safer distance with just a spawn tube(a deliverer ANT but 1 vehicle limit makes it hard for people to do that), silo, and a vehicle pad is a better way to pull cortium vehicles. Think of that kind of pocket base the equivalent of an Sunderer that spawns vehicles.
Less is more in base construction. 30k cortium is just three full ANT runs, and can fund this basic stuff easily.
Firewall module in the silo, not having any real distance from the spawn room to the silo, and an engi who likes to place a noisy auto turret and anti-personnel mines is literally the best defense vs. infantry over the most elaborate base design.
>>
>>939613
the best use for walls is ablative armor for real buildings while they're building and have lower HP/no armor/no modules
afterwards just delete most

also AV turrets are worse than burning cort on lightning pulls as needed, the people who will willingly sit in them are shitters who cant hit a lightning more than once with a full heat meter of shots
>>
>>939569
what lol
>>
>>939620
I don't think you realize how far the effective range or damage the AV turrets have. They have a massive 17k health, dont' take extra damage from tank shell damage type and with a repair module healing automatically even while under attack, and they do 1550 tank shell damage a shot at max damage which two shots lightnings and puts MBTs in the red. They fire faster than any vehicle and are the next best thing at shelling down buildings after the flail.
>>
>>939613
Still laughing at how they thought walls with a window in them were a good idea without the shield that makes them actually usable by infantry.
Same with that useless ass tower, only good for having spotlights on it and the tree stand does that better now alongside dedicated lamps
>>
>>939647
yeah but people who jump to gun them are shitters who would prefer to safely rake in a trickle of certs than actually fight and be at risk
peak effectiveness is subject to human error, or in this case human motivation

the kind of man who will take less certs than the shittiest sniper infil to camp for hours while the trenches creep forward is the kind of man I dont trust to actually hit a rampart wall at range

>>
>>939697
I would argue that tank shitters are the worst, they won't ever leave the comfort of their vehicle. You can understand that that kind of argument isn't the point. The AV turret is ridiculously strong and both makes the best form of base defense since it obliterates what kills constructions quickly: vehicles; and it also has the range, sight, and firepower to shell constructions, infantry, and spawns at a distance. I forget mention, just like an AP vehicle, a direct hit OHKO's any infantry, and it has an easy time making those shots and with twice the fire rate of a tank with an AP cannon it. It really is the ideal choice. That's the argument that matters.

I crank my render range up to maximum, build a single anti-vehicle turret, and pelt the enemy playerbase from beyond their significantly shorter render range for free, all they see is their building taking constant damage with no shot trails or anything

not frontally
to the back or top? sure.
to the front?.. maybe optics, top mounted machine gun.
consequently, light at should also beable to detrack and immobilize tracked vehicles. which ideally you'd have to get out and repair with engineer and not any aoe heals or fire suppression.
tanks suck in this game anyway. shells don't even have splash on HE rounds.

there was a solid week of the NC being moderately competent before they went back to being little babies who give up when the going gets tough and either log out or sit in a 2 side grinder with TR (who then whine about the NC always picking on them in yell like they ever stood a chance at winning)
>>
>>939998
There are a handful of NC and TR outfits who're willing to actually fight VS instead of just zerging, and the only time VS gets beaten is when they're online.

VS took another tiebreaker alert today in dominating fashion. The gap gets so bad it's fucking sobering. I mostly solo run, but I keep above a 1.7 kdr and did better than that during the alert, but the kill count gap just gets so wide it boggles the mind. It feels impossible to start over the cert grind and switch sides, but I'm starting to seriously consider it.
>>

tiebreakers are just about who can reign in the blueberries best, or if there are multiple different continents open who rammed their high skill platoons in as soon as they could so there were less blueberries total on their side

proven wrong, immediately.
TR LMG has
+100% magazine size
lower recoil
lower first shot recoil multiplier
11% faster projectile velocity
and otherwise identical stats except
+80% reload time
+50% equip time
bullet drop

Shit deal for vanu. The actual TR LMG clone of the Orion is the MSW-R anyway, which is literally a case of "the exact same but slightly better"

>>940740
So then why would I ever choose to use the shitsnake over AP then? The one and only gimmick which is doing good dps to ground vehicles is going to get nerfed so what's the point? AP can at least hit infantry or aircraft properly if you aim well.

I just like the red color scheme.
And I put in far too many hours and too many directives before I started to actually understand the meta, crunch numbers on factions, and basically see them in action outside of the realm of idealistic number theory.

Turns out "raw 1v1 dps" doesn't matter when you can just avoid getting hit or negating hits entirely in some way or another.

VS heavy will feel better because your teammates are better. more skilled faction to carry your stupid faggot lying ass

WRONG!
Here's how it works in the game https://iridar-mirror.knyazev.io/index.html%3Fp=1343.html
So Carv kicks 3 TIMES in either of directions which, compared to orion's 2 times makes a recoil pattern much wider and more unpredictable. Educate yourself, planetfolks!

I've been playing on NS and joining random public squads for each faction

Here is my review
>vs
>SKL
actually talked although they mostly wanted to build a meme base. It ended up paying off cause the TR attacking it got bored and decided to fight NC.
Had a tough fight when I happened to join them but they did OK despite being outpopped.
>m1queen
Seemed normal until it said its pronouns were she/her and made me wanna not play vs anymore. Kinda a boring squad but redeployed around intelligently.
I'm often a little frustrated on VS because obvious plays to wipe out enemy spawn points like sunderers when theres plenty of time to do so just gets ignored, even with plenty of bases with infinite cortium for lightnings nearby.

>NC
Most of the squads I joined were silent.
One squad I found actually had a platoon of 4 and our squad did some coordinated c4 fairy which resulted in many sunderer kills. Was good.
Maybe ive been unlucky but the faction seems solid just lacks leaders, but hey this games been around awhile so I get it.

>TR
>P4le.
Some australian ranted about the VS NC alliance and we did an armor zerg. It was fun. Many vanu bases got ripped up. Leader seems slow
>BTYR
Best and most fun, always doing galaxy drops, point holds, armor when we need armor, infantry when we need that.
