I'm sure it will be an amazing all-day event. On a Tuesday.

What's funny is the damage this did to their PR. People got excited, news posts were made, discussions started. What a perfect opportunity to actually do something, since people are actually interested in a PS2. Now they cried wolf and it's all the same old disappointment we've come to associate with what should have been one of the best MMO experiences, and should also have been a flagship of how to put the massive in mmo.

Inept.

If they had half a brain they would have AT LEAST activated all accounts for 7 days for their 7 year Anniversary. Get people back, maybe get a few subs after. Make the event big!

I think I played Planetside once, ever, in 2005. Well past the glory days. *I* was excited by the announcement. I don't even know what this is.

That video was bad and they should feel bad. Additionally I don't even know why you'd think giving a few players a massive buff so they can pwn whoever they like would be a good idea. Best case scenario you get a load of catasses fighting each other, massacring normal players that get caught in the cross-fire and feeling awesome while everyone else quits until it's over.

The best thing would be a game type they would throw into Subspace, called chase the rabbit I think it was. Basically, rabbits had super guns and bombs and showed up big and red on your map. If you scored the last hit on one, you became the rabbit and got to fuck people up.

These guys just basically wade around killing people? Over and over?

Picked by GM's, yep.

Like I said, one of those is the equivalent to about 5 normal players. It was a retarded idea about 3 years ago when they made them, its still retarded. It is exactly like playing against hackers.

everyone else quits until it's over.

Thats what happens every time they do this event. Or, the rest of the player base floods one continent planet so they can't come in (good luck with that thees days) But IIRCC, they can drop from anywhere and drain bases.

Oh, shit. That's bad. Why not give them wall and speed hacks while you're at it. Even if they gave away a free week resub, I wouldn't bother with garbage like that.

We should get a class action suit: gamers vs the PS dev team (such as it is).

Oooook. At first I didn't want to get upset over this PS thing. It's a lame event, but so what, right? Then I saw that picture.

So you've got an event that takes some of the best players anyways. And you give them stuipid amounts of HP, armor and stamina. And then they all decide to camp one of the most easily defended areas in the game.

Who cares.  They might as well have turned everyone into flaming humanoid poopsicles in this event and it still wouldnt matter unless they went F2P or had some other nifty design trick to re-invigorate the game.  Complaining about the content of the event itself is pointless; and would only truly matter if the game was at least somewhat popular.

Meh, I've pretty much got that already in my equipment locker.

It's just disapointing. Mostly because I really enjoyed this game once upon a time. This was the one game that SOE made between EQ and EQ2 that deserved to be more popular than it was. To see it used in such a way is a little disheartening. Basically it's like dead person porn.  Ohhhhh, I see.

Dead-person porn wherein both people are dead.  An event, but a non-event.  Now, zombie porn or resurrected dead-person porn, that's different.  Then the actual porn quality itself starts to matter.

I'd say one of the best events was before the Bending when they spawned an artifact on the continents. That fucking rocked - cruising around with my skeleton outfit crew and ICP. I miss that... This one? no

Not much in the article, just discussing the title "Planetside Next", Smedly saying Everquest II was a bad name, and how excited he is about Planetside Next.

It never said it would be released in spring.

My guess is that's when they officially bust it out and begin marketing it?

Given that they are basically going to have no competition, I can safely say I'll play this unless its absolutely so riddled with bugs/crashes that it is literally unplayable.

Note: do not hold me to this.

Depends on what Smed means by "launch."

Quote
"We have a very big launch coming in the month of March," Smedley said. "It's a big first person shooter franchise that we're really happy with."
- from the article.

Launch the publicity machine? Dunno... launch to me in the gaming world means game release. *shrug*

And this better not be something about The Agency...I'll be pissed

Unless they make a Battlefield Online or Call of Duty Online I'm thinking Planetside 2 is about the only hope for a large scale combined arms game.  I'm hoping Battlefield 3 isn't screwed up and comes out on time...hey I believe in Santa Claws too!

If the DCUO beta is any indication, those notes are written in feces on the padded walls of a cell somewhere.
