I am not as familiar with other factions, but the NC HA default gun is pretty darn good and there are a lot of people who prefer it over the other choices, myself included. If you pick a class/vehicle to get some certs into and then work on the others, it will go by a lot smoother. When i first started, i put certs into every nice sounding add-on for every class, and soon found myself to be pretty mediocre at all of them. Started focusing on them one at a time and had a much better time. The lock-on missiles... well can't say too much about them. You can either get the ones that lock-on to everything and do pitiful damage (excluding the stryker, but that thing is OP) or focus on either armor/air lock-ons and be SOL if you are against something else. And neither can shoot at infantry or maxes. also, if you manage to hit an esf with the default dumb-fire rocket, it should destroy it instantly. SIDEGRADES. you can also put a lil bit into medic or engie and get a huge cert boost to focus on one class for a while and it is usually beneficial to new-ish players to do so. if you are wanting to spend money though.. gamestop has $5 off, so it would be 10bucks for a 1500 card; get one and hold onto it, Christmas holiday is right around the corner, and I wouldn't be surprised if SOE had some double/triple SC days. redeem it then, and you might get 4500 for ten dollars.
this must be several patches, the last one was ~1.7gb
If it isn't pay to win, why can these Aerial assault guys, just keep ganking me over and over? What can I do about it? Same goes for tanks. Takes me 4 shots on a tank to blow it up. And I'm with TR, the recoil is awful on the starting Assault Rifle. I'm rank 12 or something, got an even spread of cert's spent, I just don't see myself ever earning 100CP/200CP for the next level of perks, especially multiple times over. I play for an entire day, and I only seem to make around 40-50, levelling is very very slow, and I get what feels like one shot most of the time. The times I do get into battle though, and get the drop on people, I'm usually very successful,which is what made me fall in love with PS2, so many people that don't observe their surroundings, you can literally stealth using any class, and just infiltrate anywhere, but in larger battles you have no chance.
On the server I'm on, TR is always at a disadvantage, getting dominated by the same players over and over. This one guy called Snakey or something, plants proximity mines EVERYWHERE, the last week, he has plagued my battlegrounds, uses a PDW all the time, and never seems to move, just camps the base you spawn in. I wonder why this guy just seems to target me haahaha!
