Amen.

 

What were you guys hoping it would "amount" to?   What does killing all the NPC mobs or raid bosses in WoW or any other MMO amount to?    

I play with some friends, and it simply amounts to lots of fun for us.   We don't have to grind for levels or gear to play together, or fight the matchmaking system breaking up our party like on BF3, we simply login and send squad invites.   Then we go have fun.    

 

What exactly is everyone looking for MMO's to amount to their in lives that I'm missing?    

 

If Cowboys and Indians had a forum when I was a kid I guess everyone would be on there complaining there was no incentive to play and it didn't amount to anything.....   /shrug

Don't sweat it dude, most of the people crying tried it solo and realized right away they weren't any good, then /ragequit and came here to slam the game.  They don't get it and that is fine.  There are plenty of solo, no team work required, games out there for them.  PS is better off without these types of players.

If you want a new idea, go read an old book.

anyone who compares PS2 to Dust 514, its a tad strange, as Dust is a small map limited, as in extremely limited, numbers of players, with questionable gameplay options, versus a large map  and extremely large numbers of players, not to mention vehicle options, both ground and air, but i guess in Eve you can bomb Dust 514 from orbit.. which is probably about all its good for.. so good luck persuading anyone that Dust 514 is in any way or form superior to Planetside 2, even planetside 1 with its dated graphics is far and away a superior game.

I think the  mistake most people do is they see the word FPS and jump in thinking they can go rambo all the way.

 

PS2 is all about teamwork. Sure you can zerg your way to a decent life but it will not be fun. So if you are a lone wolf you will not like the game. You pretty much HAVE to get in with a crew or a unit and run with them. That is when the game get to be fun and when you get the most rewards form it.

 

Just like PS1... Funny how that work.

 

This is not a game for the people who like Halo/GoW/CoD/Unreal.

 

But since it is free to play i do not think it will go the way of PS1.

This have been a good conversation

True enough, while i have my 'issues' with PS2, as a successor to PS1, its missing quite a few things that were in the first one for one thing, and the individual classes have far less functionality, the game is a hell of a lot more fun if you are in an active outfit, i dont know what the in game voice is like as the Outfit im in uses teamspeak, but its a game that thrives on teamwork, this is not a game for billy no mates.

Dust has better training perks one. Dust is never empty two. Much more action! Besides Dust514 has very few bugs if any. It is also non hackable unlike most of the cheesy PC MMOFPS. In June EVE corps can hire out Dust corps to take over or manage particular planets. Also Dust players are connected to the EVE server so can talk to EVE corps directly. As well as bring plans into form. Unlike PS2!  Dust goes far and above PS2. Not even close.

Glad I have a station pass, can play EQII and Vanguard! PS2 is a waste of time :-D

My problem with PS2, as a two year PS1 vet, is that it doesn't even deserve to be named PS2.

Other than copying and pasting a few names from PS1 it's 100%, absolutely and completely a different game.

This.

It has the name of the original and the name of the empires and vechiles but it is nothing at all like planetside 1 which now sadly remains unique and dying since SoE has pretty much abandoned it and left it as a sub game .

Sadly I jumped into PS2  hoping to relive my PS1 experience  but ll i found was a battlefield version  with little to do with planetside.

Still have it loaded on my laptop but never play it.

the wow conditioning is a terrible thing to try and break

stygianpoth is aboslutely right 

they took out key and vital elements from PS1 and ganked them in PS2 especially the RPG side of the game (the levelling and privalleges leveling gave you)

great game if all you want is to gank and be ganked

but if you want longevity then PS2 is not for you

as a huge fan of PS1 i had been (while i played Beta and a month of opening) i wrote again and again they have made PS2 a very poor cousin of PS1 

PS1 had an amazing community and game play that brought people flooding to PS2 but sent them away just as fast as they realised it realyl has none of the player capture and keepya 

so many things from PS1 shoudl have been kept, they should for the millionth time i say this kept essentially the same game with better graphics for PS2

 

I stopped playing pretty quickly, the shop is a joke and a rapant quick money grab from people who could have made this teh greatest game ever

Good news. There was a GM on PS1 a few nights ago and he gave the few people logged on Fusion Blades and did some meteorite/black ops events. I think this is a sign that SOE is preparing for an influx of players in the near future..

Most shooters seem to have a rhyme or reason to the game, PS2 did not......It jsut felt like ok were gonna dump you in this playfield and thats it....As far as shooters go, this would be pretty far down the list.

It is not P2W, it is Cheat and Exploit to not Pay. Personally, I don't know which is worse.

Negative Ghostrider.  Just because you buy a submachinegun doesnt mean you are any better than me.  The free weapons are actually very good and all weapons are openable through certs you earn in the game.  Do paying customers earn certs faster? Yes.  But for petes sake, there has to be some advantage to paying a sub fee over free players.  It isnt pay to win.  As an example, if I pay and only play 6 hours a week, I will earn about 400 cert points.  If you play free and log in 12 hours per week you will earn just as many certs as I do.  You can unlock everything I can unlock and have access to everything I have.  Where is the pay 2 win?  Paying customers only get access faster for equal playtime.

 That's because PS2 is NOT A SHOOTER

It is a WARGAME/WAR SIM dude...

Sorry have to disagree with you there; it's not a wargame/warsim at all. It has slightly more complexity than some shooters, but it is still a shooter. Bases flip way too fast and defense is largely pointless at all but a tiny minority of bases...so negative on the whole war sim thing :(
