Well then prepare for lots of this

 

https://forums.station.sony.com/ps2/index.php?threads/cant-launch-the-game.136320/

 

After EVERY PATCH there are tons of bugs, crashes, poor performance hits, lag, did I say bugs and yes new Hackers with their latest hax.

 

And now we have the latest issue.. Players get booted and can't even log in.  Going on a couple of hours now and all we get from SOE is a response on FACEBOOK (???!!!) saying they are aware of the issue... WTF...Facebook and not the offical forums?...

 

People will always say "take this time to go get some sun"..

My response to that is, with the amount issues this game always has, their player base is probably sunburned.

I quit the game due to aim-bots, SMG snipers are not very fun.

SOE lol

I tried the game again a few days back noticed performance is still shit and players are not drawn and that was it for me. Maybe the game needs another year before it gets out of beta.

Other than being prettier than PS1, this game doesn't hold a candle to it sadly.

If you want a fix use Sweetfx and turn off SOE's damned FXAA. Their FXAA in the game sees a 20-30 FPS drop for myself so I use Sweetfx to turn it off and make the game look overall better in the long run with the other options. However, Sweetfx is a 3rd party program that could get you banned; so use it at your own risk.

Wow, the login servers went down not even an hour ago, Higby posted they were looking into it right away. I am sure other games never have issues like this right? I rarely have performance issues after patches. Not sure why you dislike this game so much but whatever your reason why try and ruin it for other that might actually enjoy the game? Aimbotters and cheaters are rare these days as well.

I ran into about 3-4 aimbotters just last week. I think you're just ignoring it. However, the game's still fun in short bursts; I love playing my Light Assault.

I don't ignore it but I play a ton so when i actually run into someone aimbotting i can pick them out versus someone that is just really good which was probably the case.

SOE fanboy may I direct you the the Tech forums that are flooded with people after each patch.

 

May I also direct you to a hotfix or 3 that they always have to toss out there after each patch...

I won't even get into the balance issue *Cough* hax max instagib for 5 months, HE SPAM for months, LOLPOD SPAM for months, and then cream on the pie, THE ZOE!.... 

Nor will I talk about how this game is quickly turning into P2W.  With the recent resource nerf it's hard and nearly impossible to try to compete with people that have boost (that they paid for)  You will quickly find your self running out of resources to do simple stuff like HEAL yourself with kits..  And this is coming from a guy that has boost and has a 4 k/d hr ratio before the stupid death nerf...  God forbid you want to actually load up on AT/AV mines or get in a max suit... You pretty much will be broke and ineffective since the TTK is COD ish Bullshit.

Yeah the game is perfect though.  I call it like I see it.. And PS2 is pretty much a buggy mess mess most of the time to go along with being a balance nighmare.

man...9 posts pops this up on the trending games...

 

anyway...this was always one of those games where when you are new or bad everyone is hacking, once you get the game and get decent hackers become much more rare.

I played the game heavily when hacking started to get crazy as people said.  only a handful of players were actually cheating. I remember being with a few players convinced a guy was a hacker until I showed them exactly where he was standing, where he was hiding, and the line of sight he had from his hiding spot.  They were convinced the guy was a hacker until they started to do what he did, and im sure the enemy new player thought they were now the hackers. 

 

Just how games like this work.  Don't get me wrong there are hackers...just its a type of game where calling hacks is easy to do.

I do remember one time 15 galaxies full of our clan was one shot by a guy on the ground...yeah that was a hacker. 

 

 

anyway how is the game now? im kinda waiting for the smedlybox to happen before coming back.  game still alive and well?

I just went back to playing a few days ago and it's still hopping.   They have added a few things since the last time I played a few months ago like the lattice system (if you played the first Planetside then you will know what I'm talking about) on one of the planets.  They also now give you certs for free based off of how long the last time you logged, roughly.  Basically I get about 7-12 certs a day from that.  So basically it's a form of rest XP lol?

But yeh, the game is still healthy with lots of intense battles and more and more of the outfits are starting to play more organized.  I still prefer the Planetside 1 cert system over what they have now, but I guess they need to make their money some how.   Still, for me, no other game even comes close to this type of massive world PvP.

No, I don't wanna play Planetside 2.... I mean the game was designed with the pure marketing hype of not being pay 2 win. Nothing there supposedly will enhance the characters skill... Yet, after designing a system that is sorta pay 2 win faster, they actually just tried to install pay 2 win features and sneak them by you. WTF?!?!?!

Wow, I had actually been contemplating this game for a little while now. I've grown so bored with everything else, that I'm trying a bit of this or that. When it first launched, I heard that it was absolutely amazing, coming from SoE. Looking at these reviews, I'm less likely to even give it a second glance! Thank god for this site. I save so much time.

hax too, but mostly the ignorant gaming population cried about back-capping. Which was non existant. (Truth was, they never fully cleared out the captured zones and enemies retook flag) To shut these dummies up they ruined the game overnight by taking away access to capture anything but an adjacent hex... Stupidest design change ever, and game went from fun to outright stupid.

Meh, PS2 is the best MMOFPS out IMO and pretty fun game - I can throw away an hour or so everyday to it and have a blast the whole time.

maaaaan you know the game is doing good when after a year this is all someone can say.

 

If no one is dis'n game play, and they are only complaining about stuff outside the game. The game is a winner.

When I eat chocolate chip pie it just doesn't feel like chocolate chip cookies. The texture, the consistency, it's just not the same and this is disappointing.
