Planetside 2: Server - Mattherson || Race - Vanu

Post Posted: Mon Sep 03, 2012 4:33 pm

There has been a lot of interest expressed by people I have gamed with and I wanted to get a bit of organization going into the release of Planetside 2.

The game will be Free 2 Play, so there shouldn't be much of a barrier if you want to get in on the action.

F2P rarely means less of a barrier... Confused

The barrier will specifically not be as large as a $60 price point, though.

It can easily add to that pretty fast though.

Oh you want to be that race? 5$
oh you want what class? 5$
You want to use that skill? 3$
You're zoning in where? 8$
You want to be higher than level 20? 10$
Hey! You got a purple! 5$ or you can't put it on.

Not saying F2P can't be done right. I've just never seen it.

So I'll just prefix this with the fact that I did not play the original Planetside (my machine was so shitty, the only MMOs I could play were EverQuest and WoW) so some of this may be old hat for Planetside Bittervets.

Here's what I'm seeing: In game, there are things called Certification Points. Every class and vehicle has a Certification Tree (much like a talent tree) where you get certs that improve some aspect of that class or vehicle. Most certs have multiple tiers (E.g. the Medic gets an ability that makes their heal tick faster and revive infantry with more health) and some are just one-time abilities (e.g. the Medic gets an ability that heals infantry that are also inside a vehicle with that Medic). And some classes have weapons that unlock with CP (hurr hurr) as well.

Each Cert has a point value that it costs to purchase it. You earn Certification Points in 2 ways (that I know of): First is every hour you're online, you get 1 Cert Point. And then every 250 XP you earn, you get 1 Cert Point. (A kill can get you like 100xp, an assist can get you like 50xp, capturing a node yields 100xp, taking a facility yields 500xp, etc.)

The thing is, there is no limit to how many certs you can have. There is no respec, you can just cert the fuck out until you have a perfect character.

The monetization comes in 3 forms: First, instead of spending Certification Points, you can spend Station Cash instead. (No one really knows what the cost actually is, as the Wallet is disabled in the beta).

Second, you can unlock vanity items (like character/vehicle skins). Cool, pink camo. Go you.

Third, you can buy Boosts that enhance something about gameplay. For example, you can buy a Boost that gives you +50% Exp for a week. Or you can buy a weaker version that gives 50% Exp for 4 real-time hours. Or what have you, again, costs are unknown.

A few minutes footage I took over the weekend when joining some random squad. They turned out to be in a platoon that was sieging The Crown, which seems to be the most contested area in the game.

Yeah, but that's mostly me looping Vestia's "faster on the fucking aspect or I'll kill you".

The Crown is literally Hitler. Turtle city, nigh impossible to break.

I play with some EVE bros as NC on Lysethia and we usually just shit on all the TR's northeastern holdings while they jack off in that faggot ass tower and whore on magrider kills.

Rolled a new character on Thebe as Vanu to play with some TEST bros. A wise decision, that night we established a 1 squad No Fly Zone right above the NC warpgate. Many lulz were had.

There was discussion last night on what race we'd finally roll as at launch, which still in the air, but NC seems a little OP, so I'd vote in that direction. Even though the Vanu aircraft and tanks are more maneuverable, and the Terrans look better, why wouldn't you want guns that just shoot harder?

Sony has a triple Station Cash sale today (only). If you know you're gonna play the game a bit, might not be a bad opportunity to jump on.
