You can add me, I'll list my name later.  Fucking 8:23:35 to go on the patcher so uh.. see you tomorrow I suppose.

Oh?  I thought you were restricted to one faction per server.  How long is the timer?

So, Evangolis, Emerald, Vanu, Reserves.  Spent about three hours being clueless and cursing the red/green UI colors.  Killed the time fast.  Lotta bind rushing and spawn camping.  Mostly got rolled by Terrans, but slowly.

IIRC it was something like 20 mins if you were just in a live combat zone.  If you only just logged-in and - for example - swapped certs,  or were checking out hot-zones to decide which faction you want to play you can insta-flip.

Getting rolled by the Terrans is a daily occurence. Ze goggles apparently do something.

I was playing TR on my last PS jaunt. I love da thumper. I use the grenade launcher in pretty much any game that has one, though...

As I suspected, Komoto is my Vanu on Emerald. BR10 Inf, ATV, AMS, hacking (not adv.), combat eng.

I also have a BR5 vehicle guy with Armored Assault 1+2 and Combat Engineering as well as a BR6 flier I forgot with Air Cav Assault + Scout and engineering (not combat). I think the AirCav guy was my previous UniMAX duder.

All have full respecs available if I feel like changing anything.

I've gotta chuckle at some of my stupid alt names. My TR alt: DreadLordRoxXorZizNatCh (My TR main is Komoto-K if we ever decide to play the fun faction :P)

Well, if you're VS you can't shoot yourself, (sadly) so shoot the blue and red guys.

Yes, though the game is actually quite complicated (for a FPS) -- so complicated and poorly documented, in fact, that most players don't bother to learn all the "rules" which I'm sure pisses off many a CR5.

Eh, at least three quarters of the CR5s are clueless assclowns anyway, so it's mostly ok.

Ok, I'll create a vanu.

I have a BR 8 that's configured for Uni-Max (Vladimeerr), and just created BCNewb for other roles if we need them.

Yup that's true but I always feel for the CR5s that hopelessly try to get their side to defend or attack the "proper" base.

Well, it's like herding cats. A good CR5 can get a few mixed spec ops squads to do the heavy lifting while the rest of the zerg do their thing. (And that's pretty much what it boils down to, who can out pop whom) That said, you'd be amazed what a single squad of good players on a vent server can achieve against three or four times their number of unorganized zerglings.

My Markov NC outfit used to be a main tank assault force, and on a good night we'd sport 8-10 vanguards. You have NO idea how effective a tank column of that size, all targetting the same targets while they zoom past (first tank hits once, second tank hits once, third tank hits once, etc etc).

Not to mention tactically organized gen takedown/cc capture and hold squads all working together. It's damned amazing, and really exilerating!

Vanu are my favorite faction, hands-down.  The hover vehicles are great, their MAXes are good, and their assault rifle is the best of all of the factions, IMO.  Their anti-vehicular weapon is the weakest of the factions and their heavy weapon is disappointing, but you can dip into common pool and alien tech weapons for replacements.

The problem with Planetside is that it's primarily full of retards running around like... well, retards.  Getting ten competent players to actually work together could have a big impact on a battle, but there aren't any such players to be found.

Using the training missions answered most of my dumb questions, so I recommend that route for truly clueless newbs such as myself.  I haven't figured out the communications yet, hopefully I'll just listen along on vent.

Made BR5, now have basic hacking and stealth, plus a medium assualt layout that is just enough to make armor notice me.  Spent the last couple hours scratching the paint on a Vangaurd/BRF team.  Launch two rockets, respawn.  Kind of fun, nonetheless.  I'll play with stealth next time, see what that is like.

Part of me is tempted to pay, just so I could use the cool toys, and part of me remembers that I have this thing called rent.

Magrider columns are sick. I used to lead the armor division of our outfit. 20 guys in 10 magriders with 2-3 skyguards for those pesky reavers = snipe ownage.

A fun thing to do, but less effective, is field a ton of lightnings. The lightning requires some practice and a lot of repairing, but when you get good with it you can really chew up infantry, especially infantry zerging out of an AMS.  I liked using camera angle to log shots over hills into fortified areas (tops of the wals and courtyards).

The Aurora is an infantry death machine. If anyone takes transport its a lot of fun. Has no air defense though.

They key to stealth is moving slowly (this means crouch) most of the time, combined with knowing when to sprint past distracted enemies. Keep in mind that motion sensors will make you appear on mini-map (as well as skeeter radar), and if they see you on minimap but not in front of them, they wil probably either randomly spray gunfire, or turn on their darklight which will make you glow brightly in the middle of their screen.

At BR6 (cap for reserve program), you'll only have one implant, which doesn't let you get the full suite of "anti-detection" capability that's available, so it can be hard. That being said, good stealthers are the very devil.

I've forgotten a lot of my tricks, but I messed around with my stealth engineer for a while last night. Lots of engineers were around, so I didn't get a lot of kills, I'm usually pretty good with my placements. A bit rusty on using the ACE, had a guy who I shot down from an air tower (he was in a skeeter) come gunning for me, made it into the tower and I almost got him with my mines, but I blew (bad pun) finishing him with the boomer before he got me (popped me out of the AAA gun by hacking the tower).

Joined the zerg for a bit as my stealth combat loadout, but I'm reeeal rusty at that. I've got the pistol which is actually pretty effective when stealthed in a zerg crowd, but switching to the ACE for booming is laborious. I wish there was a quicker way to switch out inventory. My knife attacks generally got me teamkilled by someone targetting the guy I was assassinating...

What kind of connection are you using? After I found a CRC error on my 2nd original install disc, I just downloaded the patcher. Took about an hour and fifteen minutes, I just watched Surface and read a little and it was done. I can pull about 6Mbps on my cable modem, though (on a good day with the wind at my back).
