honestly that's all i can think of off the top of my head. why the hell do people play this game? it's so skewed beyond belief.

 

the ONLY fun i've had as a free player is spawning a MAX infantry. since so many play engineers i get healed quick and they have decent weapons against infantry and vehicles for not paying anything extra. i just may have to invest in MAX, but i feel like i already failed the game by spending so much of my certs into infiltrators that are useless beyond means.

 

You are literally admitting that you suck hard at this game. I'm not a top FPS player as I usually dont play them except for games like Borderlands mostly, and only thing I can agree with you is the rocket pods, because I've been killed by rocket pods for a whopping two (2) times.

 

No such things even exist like "auto killed" or "unknown source" to begin with.

 

Second, do not repair vehicles out on open if there's enemies nearby or you will get killed ofcourse, do not revive people out on open if there's enemies nearby or you will get killed. You might ask next what's the purpose of revive if you cant use it, you CAN use it but not on the rushers who died out on the open unless there's cover. What about repairing? A vehicle does not only go forward, you can backpedal by pressing the "S" key on your keyboard to get behind the hill and THEN repair.

 

Also you dont get spawn killed because you change the spawn location and not re-spawn at the campsite forever like a robot. What about deploying? Well it IS a gamble, you take a serious risk at dying quick with deploy on many cases. Pro tip: you can maneuver your drop pod so try to steer it behind cover or misc spots.

 

You also dont get hit by lock on missiles because you slightly turn in low to medium speed to get the missile punk'd or just press the flare button. I've shot a whopping 179 lock-on missiles at air targets and I've got a crazy 10 or maybe dozen kills with the lock-on launcher because of dodging, flares, and low damage of the missiles.

 

Your OP reeks of trolling and bad playing, infiltrator only sucks if you cant aim or you play Terran Rep. and use the default sniper (first upgrade is 100 certs if I recall right, 250 tops), you said your self you get killed by infiltrators while repairing, I guess those guys knows how to aim then? I cant recognize the game from your OP so there must be something wrong with you too and not the game alone.

Actually maybe it isn't that he sucks bad at this game. he could be running into the same thing many other people run into. Bad hit detection and rendering issues. Those auto kills could be his client not even showing him the people that are shooting at him. The rendering issue is a pretty big issue on the main forums. I was just in a fight this morning with a max and he was popping in and out of my rendering engine and he was only 2 feet away from me. I did get the kill on him, but I could only hurt him when he was actually being rendered on my screen.

The word FREE in the thread title gives it away. The op thinks he's a better player than he actually is and everyone else has paid for some magic I WIN button, because he couldn't possibly be doing this bad.

 First FPS?

Been this way FOR EVER, in terms of online FPS games. I was spawn camping on a "486" machine, before the very first Pentimum, lets say circa 1993...........

Petition to change thread title to " the daily life of a terrible player"

 

 

/signed

 

 

 

also, you cant play engineer becuase you said they get auto killed, but then state you enjoyed a MAX since theres so many engineers to heal you....which one is it?

 

oh and for all you nooby-noobs...pay attention to what sunderer you respawn at.  the sunderer you just died at thats getting bombed by a liberator is a bad one to respawn at.  at good libby pilot/gunner will purposly avoid hitting a deployed sunderer and farm all the derps who respawn there. as will any other competant player whos is attacking a deployed sunderer. those things are money makers for the enemy if deployed in a bad location.

This game Isn't that bad.I've restarted a few times to change to the winning sides of the war.After using a few Certifications you start to notice a change.Like upgrading your armor.I can take more shots & kill more.Also your not or nobody Is a one man War (Rambo) I figured this out really fast.You will die & often.That's what a Sunderer Is for.You can help turn the tide & keep pushing like everyone else Is trying to do.Also watch where your walking Snipers & the rest of the 2000 people are after you.Don't stand on landing pads either.I'm not a good pilot & crash alot but awesome In a tank so stick to something your good at.When you have enough resourse & they regain pretty fast you can try to practice flying.The Space key Is accend lol.

I have pretty fun & I'm sure later on I'll have more Certs Is a pain kinda earning more because I'm learning how to kill more.Last night I took my tank & ran over like 20 players so I learn new things daily.After earning more skills & weapons It will be a blast.I play for hours sometimes.Low level atm cuz I restarted once or twice & finally got used to & play good as a Heavy Assault.

Good Game.

I found this and maybe it will help others. It doesn't help the rendering issues of the client but it can really raise your fps and make the game more appealing. You need to locate your useroptions.ini file. On windows 7 it is located at: C:\Users\Public\Sony Online Entertainment\Installed Games\PlanetSide 2

Below is the first two sections you really need to worry about. In the display section the big one in there is RenderQuality. Until they get the game optomized better, it is suggested that you lower the renderquality down some. On full it is listed as 1.000000 Below you will notice mine is setting at 90%. Most folks you have low fps have been reporting setting this to around 85%, At 85% on my rig, my fps will sit at 100fps almost all the time. Now in the rendering section, just so you know what the numbers mean.

0= Off ,1=low , 2=medium , 3=High , 4=Ultra high.

0 and 4 can not be attained through the user interface. it will only go to low or high. To get to ultra you have to edit the ini and put 4 in there or to turn something off you have to set it to 0

You will have to play with these settings to see what works best for you. With the settings below, I get around a constant 40-50fps. That is on a i7 920 @ 2.67ghz 12gig of ram and a gtx285 nvidia card. What I found that works best for me visual wise and to get my fps to around 75fps most of the time and in large battles down aroung 50-60 is to do the following. All lighting stuff, set to 0. Turn it off, not needed. The rest of the ones listed under UseLod0a=0 I would set them all to 2 and start from there. Keep model quality at 4, it makes the user models look very nice. So with this setup, you can have some nice eyecandy and still get good fps. Also note, renderdistance. this is another big one due to the crappy job they have done on optomizing the game. Set it to around 1000 or 1005 like I have it set in mine. Its really the max distance anyone can see you at and having it go any further then that, really starts to hurt your fps.

Another thing to note, when you set anything to 4, when you look in your settings while in game, those that are set to 4 will be blank, due to the game not allowing ultra high in the user interface. You can get a great blend of eye candy and fps by playing with these settings, just have to find what works best for you. This wont help with the engines rendering issues of people near you disappearing or just not even showing on your screen, thats a problem with the engine, but it does make the game a lot more enjoyable.

This isn't the case with some settings, such as texturequality, lightingquality and particlesLOD, high for lightning and particles is 2 and high for texture is 1, I'm not even sure if 4 works on them. Some people say they use 5 but 5 is the same as -1 (default).

As for referdistance, i've played with 750, 1000, 1250, 1500, 2000 and there's VERY little change in fps, 750 is terrible for when you're dropping in a pod as the ground is completely white until you're close (and too late to reposition your pod) and 750 can be a problem when using anti-air. For nwo I'm using 1500.

You are right, when I said it, I was meaning the settings for the small section in renduring. I had to play with the settings as I could not find any posts that actually stated what they did so I thought I would post my findings to help others out.
