So... They still deny my faction change I had in since day 1 on PS2... and now my VS main (on Jaeger) is having the server merged with Waterson? Shit.

Our PS2 faction is open right? I don't want to end up in violation of our bylaws because Sony chose to fuck around with servers.


It will also mean that the VS have an even smaller slice of the prime time population pie =(

Just be warned that when you see BJTC rolling around, it's about to get serious. =P We've got about 300 members (hard to tell currently active, esp with the Vanu nerfs, but probably around 100, with a platoon on at any given time)

I have dumped 1500 certs on my medic. It's going to be epic. Only thing I don't have is the Rex grenades:) and second tier c4. I'm ready for Saturday night! Why are they merging? Jaeger low pop?

Not sure. One of my Vanu told us (i haven't looked at the official thread, if there is one)

I do know that it's a terrible choice of servers. Both have a sizable TR population advantage that this will only exacerbate.

NC are probably our highest pop, but they're poorly organized for the most part. Vanu got gutted after GU2 so many people leaving or switching characters.

You'll want to get to know EZC (EZ company, NC outfit) they're one of the better groups.

On TR you'll want to watch out for TRAF, they're crazy organized.

On VS you'll be watching for BJTC, VREV and a couple others.

Except half of AT is/was cheaters and exploiters and many got banned during the big purge a month or two ago.

Also during beta they were the biggest pile of dicks ever, intentionally teamkilling anything and everything that didn't wear an AT tag.

In all honesty, I should be TR, but SOE keeps denying my request i put in from day 1, initially allowing faction changes, then saying "hang tight, we're making a paid option" and most recently saying "well it could upset server balance, so we probably won't do it"

Soooo I'm stuck as Vanu, with every gun unlocked, most certed up, and so forth

Wow nice man! I played TR most of planetside 1. They are my favorite! I do the best with there infantry weapons and ESF. I don't like the TR tank though. I'm down to rolling some TR with people when we don't have an NC event running. Maybe I Connery ? Lots of higby fanboys there. I didn't know that about azure twighlight I just know they are a Zerg outfit heh.

Actually (from experience on receiving and using) the TR Prowler is a very lethal weapon, especially when braced. In the braced config it out performs any MBT fire power wise. The VS have mobility, and the NC have a mix of fire power and mobility, with a emphasis on range, but I would take a TR Prowler over them all, especially in a armored spear head. My NC Vanguard can survive maybe 3-4 shots from one, 2-3 if it's braced.

The Mag tends to make pilots overly cocky, causing an armored column of vanu to falter pretty easily. All too often I get sucked into chasing someone into a poor position and I pay the price.

The prowler is designed to do what conventional tanks do. Surround, wait, and annihilate. I like the prowler but I need way more practice.

I've got a Br 8 or 10 or so TR on.... SolTech, but SolTech is actually one of the lowest TR pops out there lol. (and it doesn't have any of my fancy expensive unlocks, stupid Sony.)

Hell, they should just finish that universal unlock scheme they mentioned working on. If my lasher unlock counts as an MCG too, and so forth, works for me!

Possibly coming back to KGB Saturday Night Fights, DeRev is a crazy self destructing mega zerg now and Sturmgrenadier is so rigid there is no fun, they don't even wait for a cap anymore, too in a hurry to push VS/TR around the map. Lately both outfits have started saying the same thing, "Let the Zerg hold it and gain the certs" so I burn resources to pull vehicles and equipment to let other people gain the rewards now? Either way they don't realize their true potential and commit far more men and machines then it may require only to find out they are weakening other areas, poor command decisions might win a battle but they never win the war. Lately we have been attempting to hold four battle fronts, yes I said FOUR BATTLE FRONTS with ONE platoon.

I think it really comes down to your goal. I would love more certs, but I love the feeling of controlling the battlefield more. We take part in the zergs and sit around gaining the cap xp, but we also sometimes splinter off just to start a bunch of random chaos elsewhere, without waiting for xp.

As a result, I'm way lower BR than I should be with far fewer certs, but you can feel the effect a small team of 8-12 people can have when they really want to force something.

I think you can have both Hobbit.

I like having a tight group and fast capping something like a biolab right in the enemy's face.

A full platoon can accomplish far more then most people think. Especially when used correctly. I am sure many people here or elsewhere might (let me rephrase, DO) consider me a blow hard. But something must be said when a platoons worth of people can hold off three platoons worth of people. That is a mismanagement of resources and poor command decisions if you feel you have to yell at people to accomplish stuff. Mac and many of the others at DREV, think that the drill sgt. method gets results, it doesn't it just confuses and frustrates people, they often don't realize the logistics involved in unit movement and dispersal. It's a mess really, they have so many men and machines but are not using them very effectively and due to that they blame the lack of following orders excuse on everyone. Hell one night before ops started in earnest, he told everyone to pull armor, then five seconds later changed his mind because everyone wasn't moving fast enough for him, so he had us all fall in by squad and told the squad leaders to assign us our role. I got assigned a Infiltrator, fuck what do I know about infiltrators, much less was I certed in it.

This is probably my last week in DRev, I'll be on for KGB Saturday. My Sword for at least a squad of KGB! I would put money that a platoon of KGB would be worth all of DRev. If we specialized, and had a platoons worth in the air or on the ground we could become very valuable assets to larger outfits that try and do it all. I would give up bus driving and become a full time gunner in a Liberator for that.



Actually to hells with the rest of this week, I'm done DRev. They sap all the fun right out of the game.

My outfit intends to take part of the server merger event some of the Waterson NC outfits are organizing. Will KGB be there as well? The whole day (to "welcome" the Jaeger folks like myself) will be a massive battle for Amerish.

Drak,

Please be patient. I am trying to get at least one day a week of organized participation. I had a great first outing. The second one was not so great. Looking forward to your experience and participation.
