[Official] Planetside 2 Thread - Page 42

post #411 of 3016
I have to say that I have been having a lot of fun playing over the weekend. I have been collecting cert points as I try to figure out what class and what path I want to go down.

I think the only thing I don't like is the lack of information on weapons. Like the lightning for example, http://planetside.wikia.com/wiki/Lightning. I understand the blast radius changes depending on using HEAT, HE, or AP (wish I knew how much) and that makes each more/less effective against infantry. What I can't figure out is how much damage against another tank am I losing if I use HE rounds compaired to AP rounds. HEAT looks like it does more damage than AP and HE while costing less certs. Even worse is that the default weapon with a six round magazine looks like it does the most burst damage (if all six rounds hit) because the other weapons only have one round before it has to reload.

As slow as it is to get certs, the last thing I would want to do is spend certs to unlock a new weapon and find out the default weapon was better or more flexable.

The default weapon on the Lightning kinda sucks. I'd estimate its effective range is 20 meters. It's great if you can pop around a corner and fire into a cluster of infantry, then duck back to reload. It's also decent as long range artillery - peek over a hilltop to get the range on a deployed sunderer, then back up out of sight and fire over the hill. The 6 round mag lets you walk your shots until you see a hit indicator.

The AP cannon is a 1 hit kill against infantry, but it does 0 splash damage. Against tanks, I the Lightning AP cannon is comparable to the default cannon on a main battle tank.

Personally, I like the HE cannons. They do OK against tanks, and superb against infantry. The Prowler w/ HE is a terror.

I hooked up my 3 monitors over the holiday and have been playing at 5040x1050 on my sig rig, and much to my surprise, it runs very well. I am running the game at mostly the same graphics settings, and I haven't noticed any extra frame drop over-all. It doesn't sit at 60 fps as consistantly as it did with just a single 1080p monitor, but in big fights, it still drops to 30-40 fps like before. And it looks quite amazing. I'll post some screenshots this evening. You do seem to have to run a widescreen fix for the FOV to be correct, but once you do, it's amazing. Only thing I've noticed is that it takes a second or two longer to bring up the menu/map for some reason.

I just played for an hour before my router decided to restart spontaneously.

I joined a squad, which was part of a platoon, and then after a few short minutes it filled up. We rode in a Sunderer to Elli Amp Station, and fought on a hill for about 15 minutes before we noticed we were going to be unable to push forward. We respawned/redeployed at the Esamir Warpgate, and then all 12 of us got in a Galaxy with 2 in Scythes for escorts, and started capturing smaller points to build up influence. While flying we had numerous close calls with gunships firing at us, but our gunners kept us safe for the most part. It was quite a bit of fun.

At one of the places we landed to capture, it was hilarious because there were like 2 HA and 1 guy in a MAX suit. We land and 12 of us all exit the craft simultaneously and just mow them down. I can only imagine what was going through their minds when they see a Galaxy descending on their position, and then again when 12 people all exit immediately and open fire. I need to remember to capture some videos to upload to YouTube sometime...

Not a direct quote, but last night on TeamSpeak it went something like this:

"Full TR Galaxy incoming from the NE. Priority target. Everyone with AA focus on the Galaxy."
"We got it. Galaxy is down. Excellent work gentlemen."
"There's another Galaxy coming in from the NE. Focus fire. D***, there's a 2nd one . . . and a 3rd, three Galaxies incoming, all 12/12."
"Holy s*** there's a 4th full Galaxy! And another one, 5 Galaxies incoming, 5 Gals to the NE!"
"Sunderer spotted to the north. W**, a whole g** d*** platoon just spawned at that Sunderer!"
"Everyone pull back to A actual, NOW!"
"Alpha and Beta squads, hold the back door, Charlie and Delta cover the generator and vehicle pads."
"2nd platoon is on its way, but they're still 2 hexes out. We need to hold this base until they get here."

And then we held the base until our 2nd platoon arrived with some Air Cavalry, blew up all TR spawn points, and cleaned the place out biggrin.gif

Aw man, I'd love to be a part of something like that. I just don't think I'm good enough frown.gif Besides, I'm afraid of lags on US servers, since I'll be playing from Denmark redface.gif
