post #551 of 1014
Just for all those people screaming hackers..

I have found myself once in awhile being warped forward due to server lag and seen some pretty crazy stuff but I caulk it up to server glitches.. I've put in 20hrs+ and haven't come across anyone that Id say is glitching....

Mind you I'm sure its out there.. but its not affecting my game play..

You know, I personally don't understand this sentiment. It's not top-notch quality, but it's not much lower than Vent, Mumble, or TS. The in-game VOIP seems more than adequate, but for some reason everyone always thinks the built-in VOIP is always crap in every game. I gotta say, when the platoon I was in switched from in-game to TS3 one afternoon, I heard no difference in anything that was happening, especially since half the time we still ended up using in-game since not everyone switched to TS anyway...

I here by claim that you have never actually used TS, Mumble, or Vent, simply because of the complete LOL of that statement.

It is good enough to understand the other person... barely. It is not even close to any TS/Mumble server that has the quality bar up even half way. If you heard no difference, you need to invest in something better then a banana as your headset.

When I first started using PS2 in-game chat, I thought the distortion was intentional. Oh boy was I was I sad to learn that they are too cheap to spare the few extra kbps to actually sound reasonable. I get that it's 2000 players per server, but still... They obviously know it's crap since they've "raised the quality" at least once in the past, not that it helped much...

To be honest, this game is still fairly the same as the Original Planetside. So if anything BF2142 would have been a knock off. However I will agree BF2142 was a great game, and it's a shame they let that department of the BF franchise die/rott. However Planetside 2 takes a good approach, once you figure out how the battles work, you can start thinking more in depth.

While it is a fun way to play, it is far from necessary if you know what to look for and know what you're doing.

I really dislike your opinion. Mostly with you refering to people as a "hive mind" Their is no hive mind. It's called teamwork, not just following orders blindly. If you join a good squad/platoon the leader is thinking of what's best to "win" not how to control your gameplay. They give direction, and order to a attack. If you were on the AU server I'd say come join me for a night. I lead daily platoons that litterally have a que to get into it. Alot of folks want to be part of a "team" and working as a team is very rewarding and exciting. Something about organizing 48 players devided into 24 tanks rolling in a formation. I'm fine with people playing solo, I practice late at night solo. But if someone only wishes to play solo, then I don't think Planetside is the game for them.

I will agree it's function. It might not be the best, but it does allow for communication if some folks don't join the teamspeak.

I think your being hypercritical on the speak. You also have to consider the players mic quality and the receivers network. I can clearly make out most of my outfit of over 60 members. Our primary is Teamspeak but we do come across situations when we use in-game. I won't debate it's amazing. however I won't support that it's of such terrible quality that you cannot use it, I believe it's the fact that it's a F2P that every gamer with half built systems and camera mics are trying to use it.

Mind you I'm sure its out there.. but its not affecting my game play..

the glitches get annoying at times...still like the game though tongue.gif

the terrain is annoying, when u try going up an incline that is too steep...feels like the character is drunk

i occasionally see enemies flashing on and off walking right past me...they normally don't shoot at me, but earlier today...one of those flashing/teleporting enemies shot at me and killed me...

people on atv's are invisible

sometimes i get killed by invisible people (and no, they are not recons) although this happens in bf3 aswell, hinting that it might just be lag. (recording with fraps confirms that invisible people are killing me T.T)

also, one of the most annoying things...for the first 10-20 mins, i get a wonderful 60-70fps average, but after that, everything becomes noticeably laggier and fps drops to and average of 30-40fps ): (overheating not an issue, max temp on gpu is 66°C and cpu is at 45°C)

other than all these issues, i love this game biggrin.gif cp takes forever to build up ):

The hackers bug me too but they aren't that common on Genudine. It's pretty obvious when you run into them though.

Perhaps a little bit.

It's not mic quality the majority of the time... I roll with WMD, 2 platoons plus an air platoon when they get in gear. I've heard my squad/platoon leaders talk in both TS and in-game. It's the game that messes it up. If someone is hard to understand on TS, they are pretty much nothing but static in-game.

As for network... I have a 6mbps/768kbps connection, and what I actually get is closer to 5mbps/512kbps. 2 people can play in the house at the same time, plus TS for both, and not get any lag even in the big fights. Voice does not eat up that much.

Both of those are extremely poor excuses.

In WMD, both are used as well. Things that don't concern anyone outside the squad stays in squad chat, stuff like that. It's usable, but it sucks.

I don't doubt your connect is fine, I just said that it really depends on the connection of the sender and receiver. maybe I could have exxplained it better. If a player has a poor upload and it's getting taxed by the battle the game will prioritize the gameplay over the VOIP quality. Sadly the VOIP has a ways to go, But considering the fact they implamented multi level VOIP and have been working on improving it bit my bit. I think it will mature along with PS2. We just need to keep the issue alive, and keep expressing that it IS a good option, it just needs improvements.
