    Oh cool, you're not in the outfit though right? I get confused easily :D Post your character name and I'll get you an invite when I log in later tonight - you'll find playing with a knowledgeable group helps a lot.

    edit - make sure you install ts3 if you haven't got it already.

    Well, it appears that I am unable to get a membership even if I wanted one, because I am not allowed to use the Station account I've been playing with (that I've had for many years) to sign up. They use some German company for EU players and there's no EU country options on the US site.

    Can you log into the station account & download the client from the PS2 website? Beta players and those with existing station accounts should be able to avoid Proseiben. Maybe someone who's installed recently will be able to help!

    I can play the game with the Steam client using my Station acc, and it appears I'll be able to buy SC, but stupidly there is no way to link a prosieben and SoE account.

    Yeah they took it down because they massively broken. Like...seriously broken. It was going to be fixed within 48 hours about 4 months ago.

    It's not a bad thing mind...ProSieben are douches of the highest order.

    Had to install it on my new laptop and I ran into similar problem. When you press the "play free" button on the planetside2.com website you get a pop-up where you can stay on the us site or go to the eu site but underneath those options it state:
    "However, if you played in the Beta, continue to the North American website. Download the game here".
    Where "here" means you can download the us client and therefore don't have to use the German Company.

    Yeah Bleh's got it, I knew there was an option somewhere. Download the client via his method and just add it as a non-steam game if you want to run the steam overlay. Then you should be able to get a membership.

    Let me know your character name so I can get invites sorted.

    Edit - almost forgot, there's going to be filming tonight for the alliance promo video, so if you want your ugly mugs featured be on from 8pm. :D

    Last time this involved mass Gal drops (15-20+), huge air & tank swarms, all sorts of shit. Was a lot of fun, so don't miss it!

    Any recommended tactics for air defense as Vanu? Playing last night and we were getting bombarded by TR mossies, but even several MAXs with AA were having little effect.

    Is there something that's as effective as the TR Striker? I got that on my TR character and it's fucking deadly.

    I had a ridiculous amount of fun with my Phoenix last night.

    Yeah it leaves you a sitting duck and does about as much damage as a sidearm...but still.

    I am a hunter and sunderers are my prey.

    Striker is probably the most hated weapon in the game currently, fucking ruins air gameplay for VS & NC. So no, nothing *that* effective. Skyguard is the new king of flak (as it should always have been) and is now the only effective long-range anti-air aside from standard lockons (Nemesis). Bursters still hurt a lot up close, but over about 3-400m and you might as well wave your dick at them.

    Scythes too ofc, though if you're used to a Mossie, it'll be a sea-change... :D

    I love my Skyguard. You don't always get a kill but you clear the skies. A pair, covered by infantry, will nail any number of light air - within reason.

    I am loving my Scythe. Have got my first air to air kills and am able to nuke air to ground.. . If the AA permits...

    Those all sound great and using a joystick I'm not totally useless with a Scythe (by which I mean I spend less time smashing into the ground) but the problem is I cannot gather certs at any decent rate, so all this gear is unobtainable without spending a ridiculous amount of cash. Incredibly frustrating.

    Joystick eh? You're a brave fellow, their joystick support used to be abysmal!

    Certs fast is always a high priority for new characters. Best way is probably run Medic and max out the revive/heal tool. At max level, it's about a second to revive someone; 2 revives = 1 cert (ish). In big fights, you can be reviving and shooting for a much higher than average xp rate.

    Engi can be good too, especially with the amount of MAXes around these days. Repair lots, chuck certs into the repair tool, drop ammo (equip mana turret then hit B for ammo pack) as much as possible etc.

    Both methods give you the option for support as well as kills to earn xp - few weeks of this and you'll be earning 250 certs a session easily. :)

    I started a new job on Thursday, so Thur/Fri I didn't get on (or rather I did, but logged after 5 minutes as I was falling asleep at my desk!), but I will be on tonight/tomorrow. Will do my best to put you in good fights with lots of certs to be earned.

    Current Scythe average mission is either:

    Amazing slaughter of peons with rockets and lazors
    OR
    Crash within 1 minute, after being chased by an enemy Mozzie. They won't shoot me down... I will crash.

    Sometimes a hopeless defence can be hugely enriching. A TR zerg was moving across Amerish, they had a huge amount of air support.

    At one of the more tiny bases, I managed to completely push the fuckers away by shooting the fuck out of them with MAX dual bursters from windows. Obviously they couldn't see where I was and I was decently protected from any attacks. Completely drove their air support away, but the wave of tanks that came after saw me off.

    Fairly good jaunt. I briefly joined up with dotbad on Indar, but had to call it a night fairly soon after that.

    Solo-ing can be fun though!

    Decided I need to do up some of my vehicles. Get some night vision on those guns. Think a Sundy with AA and that multi-purpose starting gun would be good. Also want to investigate that harasser.

    Oh, I got some loyal soldier bonus when I logged in, it appears I can decorate myself in flowers.

    I seriously hope they can implement a "PS4 UI" for this game at some point. I really cannot read a lot of what is going on as it stands.

    Lumping in 360 pad support would be a clincher.

    When's the next double or triple SC sale likely to happen?

    And what's the deal with items being shared between classes and characters? I can unlock a scope that works with a carbine on my engineer, and light assault can also use it, right? But yet the same scope is not unlocked on another weapon type even though it's the same equipment?

    Are NS weapons shared across your account, available to all your characters regardless of faction?

    Some weapons are shared across classes (Carbines/Shotguns/SMGs). Buying scopes etc for cross-class weapons will enable them for use on all classes that can use the weapon.

    Single-class weapons (e.g. Assault Rifles/Medic only) work as you might expect, given the above.

    Most weapons bought outright with Station cash will be available on same-faction characters, and faction-equivalents are usually available for cross-faction characters. This is not applicable to all weapons (the rules are a bit opaque), and any weapons bought with Certs will not qualify either.


    @Widge - was good to see you on chap, next time hop in TS - it'll all make much more sense. I can't stress this enough - even if you only listen, it'll make a huge difference in how you approach the game.

    I will do. I now have PC in front room, totally brand new setup really, so I can get around to sticking that on. Definitely audio only as I haven't got a mic anymore.

    This was my first bash for some time - I set myself some goals of finishing Bioshock and Deus Ex in the interim. Multiplayer is such a time vampire!

    Alert on Esamir this morning (Woodman) was won by Vanu in about 10 minutes. Dominating victory.

    Glory to Vanu and KOTV.
