I tried PvP for the first time today and instead of my manly mohawk and leather jacket toon, I appeared as a girl in a generic lookign Templar outfit.

Is this supposed to be that way or are they just ruining my immersion?

It's to reduce lag, we use a mask + uniform.

 

you looked like a girl because you are a Templar.

yet another reason to avoid fusang.. clone vs clone vs clone... thought this was just for beta though.... ill have to check into that.

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

I doubt the uniforms are just for beta, they are there to make the 3-faction PvP a bit clearer so if you are fighting Illuminati you can try to ignore the Templar if it's the Illumniati holding a well or factility.

You know, ive always wonderd why more games dont do something like this, its actually genius...and im making the assumption based off this thread only that each faction is dressed in a faction specific uniform for the massive pvp (decided no more spoils im out untill launch so i missed all the pvp)

Instead of 150 players all in unique outfits and looks running around, standardize each faction or teams...putting them in uniforms of sorts.  Not only does it make it much more easier to identify the enemies,theres no giant red names floating above them in this game anyway...also its much easier for your rig to render and should make situations where you have 150 people on screen less taxing.

I was actually quite concerned with how the 150 player map would play out in terms of stability, being a resource intensive game...is this the reason i havent heard that the game is unplayable with so many people on screen?  Or does everyone playing have an i5 and a 600 series GPU?

 I think its because the game is more realistic than others in the fact that Oposing armys usualy wear uniforms denoting which faction they are with so they dont get killed by friendly fire

Oh, so the Templars are an ALL GIRL faction?

LOL!

Sounds like lazy programming to me!

I have to agree. I've always like the idea of faction or guild specific armors and uniforms. It creates a great sense of "allegiance" to your side, but, i'd prefer a greater variety. I think everyone's using almost the same uniform because everyone's going DPS, or whatever the systems is that defines your clothes. I'd also like special armors for the high ranking members, to identify them as such (like commanders)

I believe in life before death... So dont forget to enjoy it while you still can.

I´d love to get some confirmation on this, is it just for beta, or is it this way to keep performance issues out of Mass PvP.

 

Personally i´d imagine that at release there might be different PvP armor and weapons that can be used instead of the standard set.

Best MMO experiences : EQ(PvE), DAoC(PvP), WoW(total package) LOTRO (worldfeel) GW2 (Artstyle and animations and worlddesign) SWTOR (Story immersion) TSW (story) ESO (character advancement)

I really enjoy the PVE of this game.. not to mention I plan on playing this game ALONG with GW2 yet I still see no reason not to be critical on a game during development or after launch for that matter but especially during development. You get to many people with their heads stuck so far up the dev's asses you end up with games like SWTOR and I do NOT want that to happen to this game. Saying that if they can improve PVP I would galdly play it but think it still needs a lot of work. Sorry if that bothers you so much

Actually I think the more uniformed approach is better. In the military there is a reason that officers and top brass wear subdued rank insignia. Unless they plan on giving players who get kills streaks and what not an aura that buffs  those around them, we should continue to believe that the top brass are back at HQ making all the important decisions and keep us all grunts when engaged in massive faction PvP.

1) Looking the same as everyone else is FAIL!

2) Looking different in PvE and obtaining and/or buying gear that looks different, and customizing your toon in PvE, but then being forced to look all the same in PvP is double FAIL!

3) Being forced into an all girl  looking Templar faction is triple FAIL and not accurate to the storyline or the games premise.

4) I can understand to a small degree the uniforms for team differentiation, [mod edit]

I thought this was a MMORPG, the RPG stands for roleplaying game....forcing everyone to be illuminati males and Templar girls all wearing the same faction uniforms is not roleplaying.

Just change the game to an MMO then.

Well, I just tried PvP in Fusang and was quite surprised how well it ran even with many people around. You actually get a choice of 3 uniforms, each one does give you different bonuses or penalties. I think most people didn't notice that and used the 1st (default uniform), which I think is dps. 2nd one is for tanks and 3rd one is for healers/casters. Tanking one does have a 5% dps penalty but more health and defensive stats.

 

If having everyone look the same is the price to pay for having smoother pvp experience, I'm willing to pay it.

There are 3 different uniforms for each faction to indicate tank, dps, support. In essence, it is red v green v blue. At first , I didnt like it because Ive always been able to pvp with whatever wardrobe I wanted to look cool in. But in a situation with 3 factions, all human, with identical physical builds, it makes sense. Id rather have color coded uniforms than flags on my back or glowing borders around my body. And it really does decrease the lag factor and allow for a ton of people on the screen with decent framerates. Also, it lets you get a very general idea of what you are fighting based on the uniform which helps a lot actually. If this is a deal breaker for you, Id guess you really didnt care about the actual pvp in the first place.

Is there a link with pics for each of these uniforms somewhere, I like the game, would just like to see them :)
