I am in the same Gal as Skull on this one. Button worked fine last week... :confused:

Not that I have time to play any way. Going on holiday Friday and am already stressing.

EDIT: Figured it out, but no cigar. Had signet up with same name and e-mail as in PS1.

Cheeky ****, if it wasnt for us Gingers you would be speaking German and polishing your jackboots ready for Jew Hunting Season...


...so the only thing different would be the German accent. (InB4Sean)

Wouldn't let me click the Download button either so I went to the main page, logged in and then opened the Download page again and it worked.

Will be home in a week, can't wait to try it :)

Ah nice were able to play some yesterday

it sure is different game from PS1
the fact that it is going to be F2P is from one side nice..
but from other "hackers" makes me worry
we all know how poor or even none existent there was in PS1

im not really sure if i like playstyle of PS2
get to an area run to point A > B > C ect
something blinking?... run there :P
best transportation is 10sec instant action ;)
just pick the hottest spot and shot.

played Heavy for a while and started with 6-10
when i got some certs to actually be able to aim while seeing my target (red dot sight) it quickly changed to 22-12

feels like RPG doesnt do much except pretty explosion, it must be a direct hit or nothting

overall i am going to play it... but it is not gonna feel like PS1 at all

Instant action will be getting a real cooldown. it won't be teleportation. The goal is to get people into the action when they first log in quicker than in PS1. Simple as that.

Please Read Tata's post in the Outfit Barracks as James has linked a lovely post by Smed that points towards changes and some returning from PS1.

Ps Its still early BETA.

I quite like the gameplay changes. It seem to require a lot more thinking than just getting to and then holding CC/Gen.

Having a spawn point at hand is almost neccesary, so there needs to be a team securing Gal, then a team capping objectives and a team suppressing spawn points.

Also, what makes me supper happy, due to a lot more open layout of bases recon is actually useful. Had lots of fun today scouting for the squad and providing fire support if needed. Story of the day - our heavies damaged enemy prowler, he reversed outside of base and began repairing. Next thing I saw was *+10 headshot bonus* ;-)

yesyes i know its Beta
and im not saying its bad either :D

kinda funny.. no more AMS's
instead GAL's.. so ppl will need to specialize at some trees first to make our squads work better "tank / healer / dps" ;)

"tank / healer / dps" ;)Dont' know what you mean by these terms, I'd guess at tank driver and healer is a medic, but wtf is dps? (damage protection system, damage per second?)

It's from WOW. Fps is the main damage dealer, guess it would be Max but doesn't really fit.

He's just being an arse towards DestRox and I kinda like it. :D (I did not say that).

WoW, the mother of all MMO's ... :p

The term DPS was already used in Ultima Online, which was waaay before WoW was in development. Almost everything that people asume WoW 'invented' came from ultima online and AD&D. A lot of the rest comes from various other games, such as Ragnoroc Online, Everquest and Warcraft (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warcraft:_Orcs_%26_Humans).


As for 'dps classes' in planetside 2 ... hardly. Everyone has a usefull gun and is supposed to use it. The classes just have different secondary things to do (AV, medic, repairing/rearming, floating around or hiding in a corner or on a far away tree).

Only played twitch fps before PS, still prefer it now
Probably due to a difficult childhood due to the fact my mum was definately more in the clouds (hippy generation) and dreaming about spells, incantations, runes, divination, Ouija boards, marijuana/etc so if the game has anything to do with witches/dragons/etc I seem to have a mental block against it :eek:
