Default Planetside 2

It's a FtP MMOFPS (that's some acronym) that involves shooting people and taking over continents on the planet Auraxis. You can play as Fascists (the Terran Republic), Libertarians (the New Conglomerate), and Trans-Humanists (the Vanu Sovereignty). It's also really fun.

The factions have movies!







Yeah so those movies are kinda silly. But the game is actually quite fun. Markford I know plays, and I was wondering if anyone else did too.

I personally play New Conglomerate on the Genudine server.

Yeah I play it from time to time, it's fun if you like Battlefield. Trying to get Mega to play as well.

Isn't there a clan system in this called Outfit? We should make one.

Who is the Alliance and who is the Horde? There's always an Alliance and a Horde.

And apparently a third faction that has no analog in the comparison I've made.

All factions are both Alliance and Horde. For reasons I care not to explain and am not making up. Because they exist. Totally.

Also playing this. I'm on the EU servers of course.

Definitely has to be played as a team to shine. There's some really epic moments when over 40 people charge towards a facility, with streaks of plasma flying everywhere.

I might have to refrain from this game until I get a better comp. Larger fights have me running at like... 20 FPS max. I have defaulted entirely to combat medic so I can still do something useful.

We need to get a squad together and start playing! I'm tired of lone wolfing it, I keep getting my ass handed to me.

That's also my problem with the game, once you got 20-30 people inside a facility, it becomes more about luck for me. The frame rate is simply too low. I should probably upgrade to more than 4 gigs of RAM.

I'm primarily playing as the engineer. Upgraded my repair tool to level 3. I'm basically a janitor in the facilities, and a mechanic in the field.
