Players come for the game, but they stay for the people- Most Devs have forgotten this.

No. The main reason I won't even try this game is because it is SOE.

Well thats just being a bit silly really as you will be missing out on a great game and on release it wont cost a penny if you dont want it to. Sure SOE and LA messed up SWG but they are doing good things with this,,

 

Why get invested in a 'great game' when every past indicator says that the company in charge will pull the rug out from under you in some form or another sometime in the future? 

I have zero trust for Smed or SOE so no way, at this time, am I ready to trust them with my invested time and money. 

I am not sure what past experience you have had with this company Caldrin, but mine is littered with broken promises and outright lies.

Have been gaming with SOE since EQ1 beta..

Think i have played nearly every one of their games..

Only real let down i can think of was SWG they or where forced to make a change to that game that totally broke it.

Matrix was just boring and bad so had no issues them shutting it down.

Vanguard would never have existed if it was not for SOE.. sure they could have done so much more with it and thats a shame but its the way things go i guess.

I enjoyed EQ2 for about a year and ahalf before i moved onto other things..

Never had any issues contacting their support or any billing issues.. it was always the SWG thing that used to make me think twice about trying one of their games.. but after going through the testing process with PS2  it seems they are a totally different company.. I think they know they need to change to get back peoples trust.. From what i have seen so far this year they are going in the right direction..

Now if you refuse to play PS2 due to past mistakes then really your only letting yourself down as on release it wont cost you a penny play it. So even if you do play it and hate it yor not giving SOE any cash unless you want to..

 

ah hell now im sounding like an SOE fanboi haha.. but as i said during this beta i have kind of changed my find about SOE..

 

I have no problem with your view on this Cald, it's cool that you are not jaded like I am with regards to this company tbh.

I will be watching PS2 veeeery carefully. If infact they do behave themselves with it then I will no doubt relax my views on them for EQNext and have a more open mind.

We shall see :)

Most likely SOE will change PS2 to something else down the road... of course that is the way of all MMOs... 

Too bad you're that jaded that you won't even try the game...  I'm having a great time, especially when in an organized outfit.  And tank zergs?  Ain't nuthin to 'em if you have engineers and HA with the right launchers... just wish the engineers had more mines to carry and place on the battlefield....

" see this game dieing out within a few months because its trying to cater to too many people, plus its being developed by the worlds worst studio (well 2nd worse if you want to consider EA the worst). "

F2P games take forever to die out, simply because so many try it because of the simplicity to join in. They dont always make money but that is a diffrent conversation.

Do i like SOE? No...but when it comes to games most people dont really care so much as long as it is fun. So come off your SWG high horse sir...  and it has been a while since zylaxx responded to his own thread. Seeing all the responses on here id like him to chime in on his opinion.

Well Planetside 2 has some hope, for me there's not much on the table for upcoming games- I'm done with that shitbag BF3 game which is sad since I'm a long time BF gamer since BF1942 demo and I'm not feeling it with BF3, and I'm not even bothering with Call of Duty anymore either. There's not really any MMORPG game out there that grabs me right now so I may as well wait for ArchAge and the Repopulation, not sure if Age of Wulin will ever hit the west.


For now I'm still playing and enjoying GW2, I've been in beta PS2 for a few months but haven't put alot of time into it (maybe ~10 hours total) but I'll probably be dropping in there once in a while after release. I'll probably be playing Counter-Strike: GO occasionally too. If PS1 goes F2P I'll definitely be going back to that.

I see this game dieing out within a few months because its trying to cater to too many people, plus its being developed by the worlds worst studio (well 2nd worse if you want to consider EA the worst).  Then again, I guess theres nothing wrong with a niche audience.  Myself if I wanted to play a FPS, id play Modern Warfare which is so much more better then the garbage that this game trys to be.  SciFi and not spaces combat, lol failure.

You clearly never played Planetside or you wouldn't even make this thread.

PS2 is an mmo, end of story. It's massive, it's muiltiplayer and it's online....why is this so hard for you to grasp?

Expresso gave me a Hearthstone beta key.....I'm so happy :)

SOE was bad mostly for SWG players. SOE got majority of its hate from those hand ful of forum warriors on regular basis. I have played EQ and EQ2 for years and i have absolutely no beef with SOE.

And i will be playing PS2 first day of release.

for those of us who have played Planetside, extensively, Planetside 2 however is the NGE equivalent of SWG, its a shadow of the first game, about the only thing it has going for it, is better graphics, and that its F2P, and with Planetside 1 still around (P2P) it will be a constant reminder of all the things that Planetside 2 cannot do, which quite frankly, is a hell of a lot. Its so bad that they really would have been better off just giving Planetside a graphical update and leaving it alone than what they actually did, but then SOE has a rep, a bad one, for messing things around and 'fixing things' that were not broken. Planetside 2 is that game, and i don't think its going to be anywhere near as appealing as the NGE was in SWG.

Took a lot of effort for SOE to gain the reputation they have, and as the old saying goes, a leopard never changes his shorts.

SOE is alright all things considered. They've done their best to make money, and if they happen to make their consumers happy along the way, all the better. That's just my perception of corporate reality.

The only thing I really hold against them was what they did with SWG. That's a personal issue I have with them. I'm sure many others will applaud their handling of the game. So it's really nothing to pass judgement with.

I dabbled a little with Planetside 2 and it looks pretty fun. Not my cup o' tea, but it looks well done. That's one thing I can always count on SOE for: a quality presentation all things considered.

The other part is SOE's inadequate security practice last year, since I'm outside the US my CC stored on their database was compromised and my CC company notified me and issued me a new card. They were using an outdated firewall and database system, but they publicly apologized and then a couple weeks later 3 of their other site servers were hacked... did they not check all their servers?


SWG was royally screwed up, but SOE's addition of Aftershock in PS1 was a nail in the coffin, I hated the BFR's that it made me cancel my ongoing sub I had with PS1 at the time.

No matter how you look at SOE they are trying to create a shooter on epic scale.
And modern warfare aka camping no skill fps is not to be compared to massive scale battles.

Not going to defend SOE here, but at least they try to set a game up with thousand of players duking it out.
If you ask me to rate modern shooters its looking like this.

MW - 5
BF3 - 8
PS2 - 9

This game isnt going to die anytime soon.

There is good progresion to advance your characters, something mmo's also use no ?
It would take a year or more to farm all certificates.

Once your in a good outfit the real game begins, solo players have a real hard time getting anything done in this shooter and i love it the way it is.

It not for evryone, but calling PS2 a a failure ? kk.

 For the last few years I've questioned the SoE hate from some members here. Granted I was jerked around pretty hard by the NGE, but I still think SoE is one of the best Mmo developers out there. I don't remember playing a title SoE released and not being impressed by its quality. I just don't understand the angst, if its not soley because of SWG.

Meh, it still have more meaningful and deeper pvp than GW2 imho. For that reason alone, it deserves a place here, just to remind those devs that might stumble upon this site, that we actually *like* meaningful pvp.

 Having been a planetside 1 vet for years I can say that PS2 is a HUGE improvement, why? Because of afew things.

PS1 combat was sluggish and really not that great, while I do miss the hacking of doors ect in PS1 I can do without , also the customization in PS2 is far better and leaves more room for progression , I don't consider PS2 the NGE of SWG thats just a silly coment as both games are completely different, and has zero room here in this topic.

I have every SOE game and the only ones that gave me a issue was SWG NGE , Vanguard at launch , other then that, nothing really to complain about. There are FAR worse companies out there then SOE, at least SOE games have spunk , and interesting ideas , for example, SWG housing system and crafting system was the BEST in any mmorpg to date and yet no one has even came up with a idea that is better.

But yeah , you might want to play the game first , because afew of the Other vets of PS1 myself included think it's leaps and bonds better then PS1 just because you don't have a third person perspective people put it off, well it IS a first person shooter FPS for a reason.

I don't know about that, there is a pretty strong dedicated PS fanbase who will play no other game but PS1 or PS2. I'm no fan of SOE, but the game engine they use is pretty nice from what little of PS2 I got to try.

Since when are SOE games bad? buggy maybe, lack of developments after release sure, but its   SOE the company/management that is  "bad'  Most of them are quiet stupit to when it comes to mmo bussiness and they are almost as bad as EA whit thier f2p markets.

But the games itself, SOE games tittles belong to the most inventive, inovative, well designed games on the market for the time they were made. 

PS2 is a fine game, its a FPS thats bigger then BF and COD/MW  thus far more fun to play even if it lacks any other things. itsa deluxe shooter that you dont have to buy and can play on alot of machines, from low end dual-cores to super high

PS2 is an mmo, end of story. It's massive, it's muiltiplayer and it's online....why is this so hard for you to grasp?

for those of us who have played Planetside, extensively, Planetside 2 however is the NGE equivalent of SWG, its a shadow of the first game, about the only thing it has going for it, is better graphics, and that its F2P, and with Planetside 1 still around (P2P) it will be a constant reminder of all the things that Planetside 2 cannot do, which quite frankly, is a hell of a lot. Its so bad that they really would have been better off just giving Planetside a graphical update and leaving it alone than what they actually did, but then SOE has a rep, a bad one, for messing things around and 'fixing things' that were not broken. Planetside 2 is that game, and i don't think its going to be anywhere near as appealing as the NGE was in SWG.

Took a lot of effort for SOE to gain the reputation they have, and as the old saying goes, a leopard never changes his shorts.

 Having been a planetside 1 vet for years I can say that PS2 is a HUGE improvement, why? Because of afew things.

PS1 combat was sluggish and really not that great, while I do miss the hacking of doors ect in PS1 I can do without , also the customization in PS2 is far better and leaves more room for progression , I don't consider PS2 the NGE of SWG thats just a silly coment as both games are completely different, and has zero room here in this topic.

I have every SOE game and the only ones that gave me a issue was SWG NGE , Vanguard at launch , other then that, nothing really to complain about. There are FAR worse companies out there then SOE, at least SOE games have spunk , and interesting ideas , for example, SWG housing system and crafting system was the BEST in any mmorpg to date and yet no one has even came up with a idea that is better.

But yeah , you might want to play the game first , because afew of the Other vets of PS1 myself included think it's leaps and bonds better then PS1 just because you don't have a third person perspective people put it off, well it IS a first person shooter FPS for a reason.

have only ever used first person perspective in Planetside,  and in my experience so far, there hasnt been much, if any hype for the game from the PS1 Vets, would be very interested to know exactly what it is that you think PS2 does better than Planetside,  stealth for instance, has been nerfed, big time,  which means that the stealth part of combat has in effect, been removed from the game entirely. Vehicle combat, now appears to be based more on single player vehicles, and the numbers of vehicles available is only a fraction of the ones that were in Planetside, and this includes aircraft. BFR's however were a blight on Planetside, not seeing them in Planetside 2 would be a bonus, but about the only one so far. Combat engineering, not exactly very useful now is it, compared to the skills/abilities that were associated with it before, combat engineering is more of an afterthought, repairing and upgrading base defences, defensive minefields, stealth turrets, anti vehicle turrets,  manned turrets,  just a number of things that were somehow cut from game, then there is the armour, from the stealth suit, to the reinforced combat armour, which couldnt be used if you wanted to drive a vehicle - other than a bike,  come to think of it, what about all the bikes,  chain gun mounted, rocket mounted and stealth bikes..  thing you have to remember about SWG's NGE, is that it was a stripped down, nerfed version of SWG that nobody really wanted, and theres the thing, Planetside 2 is a stripped down, nerfed version of Planetside, and whether anyone really wants it at the moment is highly debateable, because the vets i know of, seem to have more problems with it, than praise. but hey what would i know, i am only a br24 cl1 grunt.. terran of course

MMOexposed comment:

The part in red is where you are confusing the MMO & the RPG in the term MMORPG.

MMO means massive multiplayer online game. PS2 fits that.

Progression is part of RPG elements, not MMO. Not all MMO have to be RPG.  Just like not all RPG have to be MMO.

Guild Wars 1  is not an MMO

APB is not an MMO

Dungeons and Dragons Online is not an MMO

 

Massive Multiplayer....none of those games have that.

 

Planetside does,making it an MMO.

¿You suggest that we must always remember the bad things even when there are good ones? that would make the entire world quite sad i think.

Since the C/U/R/B I've boycotted all Sony products not just SOE.

However when I saw Planetside 2 at E3 being showcased with Totalbiscuit I became interested.

I managed to compartmentalise my utter disdain and narrow it down to Smed then purchased two issues of PC Gamer that were giving out Beta keys.

Planetside 2 is the first game in more than 7 years to come out of SOE that's worth a damn (in my opinion) so I'm in. I play the game and enjoy it whilst trying to help find bugs and gameplay problems, I don't dwell on SWG anymore but believe this is SOE redeeming themselves.

It seems to me this is the first time in years the team at SOE has had the go ahead to pull their finger out and create a killer game. I suspect that the death of "The Agency" had something to do with the Planetside upgrade turning into a fully fledged new game.

So good luck to all those working hard on PS2,

See you on Auraxis soldier!
