So in PS1 you had an armor bar and once that was depleted you were then taking health damage. Armor that was destroyed didn't regenerate, you had to use a kit to repair the armor damage value.

This function has fundamentally changed now in PS2.

You now will have a shield bar whose value depends on your armor and skill set. For the sake of discussion, let us assume that light armor has 100 points of shield damage. Shield damage works the same way that Armor damage did in PS1. Depending on what weapon you were shot with, what type of ammo they were using, and the distance at which you were shot, defined how much armor damage you just took from being shot once. Same-Same with the Shield in PS2. Here is the difference. Shield damage naturally regenerates over time. During the closed beta and from reconning the GDC footage it appears that base Shield regen is about 4 per second. So you could regen from 0 to 100 in Light Armor in 20 seconds. This is where it is like tribes and other shield regen games. Once you stop taking damage, there is a 5 second buffer before you start shield regeneration. With all this said, expect to see passive skills in the trees that effect this game mechanic as well as side grades from the cash store.

I like this. It means you can do a lot of guerrilla fighting if you're not greedy. But you can still be punished fast.
And I guess you'll see some sniper rifles which won't damage the shields and do direct damage to health.

This is what they need to do for the original planetside... survive-ability in the land of hack is much needed.

It's fun Sythir, and will hopefully be even more fun when we get more people, and they get everything set for release!

Played ARMA 2 for years and did countless large scale battles in PvP. I hope PS2 is similiar in the fact that tactics/logistics are more important than a faster mouse reflex. The most fun I have ever had in a game was doing large scale invasions in Vent with coordinated air strikes, armor and ground troops.

There is a margin for that yes, but it completely depends on how people communicate, and how willing they are to follow orders. Otherwise it's a mob mentality, very little coordination, no tactics, no overall strategy, with nothing but five guys who all think they are rambo.

It takes commitment, trust, and respect to work well together. A mutual understanding and willingness to accept responsibility and blame in equal measure. That and a minimum of 20 people on at all times to accomplish anything of note. If you want Planetside 2 for KGB then keep those things in mind and start building up some interest for it.
