    Planetside 2 Beta!

    Okay so. It's looming. Very soon here.

    Let's start discussion; What faction are we all going to roll?

    Terran Republic
    New Conglomerate
    Vanu Sovereignty


    Let's also start a list of people who are interested in beta testing.

    Keep in mind, there are going to be different stages of Beta; ranging from a specific select few all the way to open beta and different stages in between. In the more infant stages of beta, there may be rule sets in place. Rules like; Only fighting in certain areas, only playing certain classes or vehicles, restricted factions, weapons or attachments, etc. In the early stages, we're looking for actual beta testers, not "yippe i get early access!". Testers that provide suggestions, etc.

    Beta Test
    ============
    bled
    minder
    bodyshot

    Early Access
    ============

    I'm trying to find simple ways to describe each faction..

    TR = black and red
    NC = blue and yellow
    VS = shades of purple


    TR = Strategy
    NC = Power
    VS = Technology


    I'm leaning towards TR, because of the black and red color scheme.


    I'd like to hear from the old Planetside players (jenny, etc). Are you guys partial to being a certain faction this time around?

    I remember those days, those huge battles were awesome except the fact you crashed out alot and the servers went down if i remember correctly. Still was a blast! No time to early beta, but if it gets to the "yipee early access!" phase let me know!

    I liked NC in Planetside 1! I am down for whatever, though.

    Some more differences;

    Although you can customize pretty much how you want, weapon type rule of thumb is:
    TR = More agile, faster cycling weapons, less punch per bullet/round
    NC = Hard hitting, slower firing
    VS = Plasma/Energy type weaponry

    I've been waiting for this game for a very long time! PS 1 was a ton of fun, R.I.P. Markov server.

    My vote is for Terran Republic. Like the trailer says, "Victory is the only option."

    PS1 it was all about NC. Always did like the MCG purely from a phallus symbolic pov.

    I would like to be included from the very beginning.

    So a ground breaking game that included FPS battles featuring 400 unique individuals on the same map in the same place lagged in the beginning???? AND there were server crashes???? COUNT ME IN!
    seriously though, every single computer game ever released in the history of the world since the birth of Jesus needed revision.


    Killdozer you know you want too.

    Oh I should add that I'm down for whatever with the beta. If there are codes to go around then I'll gladly do my fair share of bug smashing. BUT, if we have other clan members who are really interested then I've got no problem sitting on the bench until the game goes gold.
