Promise is so fucking good. It's basically the optimal close range defending LMG. TTK isn't the best going for bodyshots, but it doesn't have to be because you have 150 rounds, no recoil and extremely forgiving COF which allows you to just hold down the trigger.

Should just give it to the LA as a gadget you can pick instead of C4, something like a sapper from TF2. It'd be good because you'd actually get some variety in LA gadgets, and LA is also the class that has the least trouble getting over walls and to the terminals.

Who would the sniper rifles be handed over to, though?


19e3f0  No.15680816

>>15680679

The main problem with infiltrator is that there isn't much worth hacking. Vehicle terminals are nice for close sunderer pulls, Heyoka Chemical has the bridge, that's it. The game needs fewer, more complex, more defensible bases with more sub-objectives.


231e16  No.15681426

>>15680816

Infiltrator has a lot of problems and that's a big one. Vehicles need to be able to be hacked along with construction bases; give them a long timer to make it not horribly OP.

The actual main problem is that sniper rifles do not cost nanites, and that they can be used in conjunction with cloaking. Make them cost at least 150 and people would see a lot less sniper play in general and have more actual worthwhile ones that do actual cloak and dagger / close range play.


e9f13a  No.15681539

>>15681426

150 nanites per rifle aren't a problem when quickscope fuckgee is camping a vehicle terminal at maximum render distance with his bolt action, getting two kills per minute.


9b0a85  No.15681720

>>15681426

So you prefer infiltrators with SMGs which kill you before you even see them uncloak due to ping? I would take snipers over that anyday. The impact a sniper has is pretty minimal unless its one of those large field battles, or camping a vehicle terminal.


231e16  No.15682899

>>15681720

Yes because those are actually able to contribute to a fight and a few good infiltrators often turn fights entirely around. Everyone just thinks they're shit because of how horrible most of them are.

1-2 competent ghost-cappers can cause an entire push to get forced back; that's more than can be said than some sniper sitting a mile away in a mountain killing mostly the easier targets to begin with, they do nothing objective-wise like you pretty much said.

>>15681539

Increase it to something more then or hell do something unique and make a reload cost a set amount of nanites or something; find a balance. The point is there are too damn many snipers, this would have at least some sort of tangible impact to how many there are and hopefully get less people playing sniper and instead attempt to use the class properly instead of treating it as the token sniper class.


ae6ad9  No.15683788

unironically yes

RuAT was a russian outfit comprised of pretty much nothing but russian SMG infiltrators and they were leagues less annoying to deal with than the average boltshitter sitting on some hill 150m removed from the fight trying to plink me for 3 minutes straight while i try to work a 48-96

Don't try to pull a fast one on me, faggot, I've off and on played that abomination of a game since the beta. If anything, it was hard pay to win back then, since you could only buy improved ammo and premium consumables with real money and the matchmaking involved such autistically huge tier spreads you simply had to use it to win, like when your Chaffe light tank would have to fight E-100s and shit because there were no high-tier LTs. Why the fuck do you think gold ammo is called gold ammo? Even the line grinds have been sped up, and events shower you with XP, Crew XP and money boosters. Nowadays they just shit out overarmored premium soviet tanks to incentivize you to buy more gold ammo with your ingame dosh, so you either have to buy a premium tank or account to be able to quickly make money. It's an entirely retarded scheme and it makes the game worse overall due to obliterating balance Almost always in the vodkanigger's favor, pure coincidence, I'm sure, but it's not nearly as p2w as it used to be.

2e6ca9  No.15692620

I really wish there was an ASP system rework so that it wasn't blatantly unfair to non-ASP players. Having the ability to carry both a LMG and Chaingun/Jackhammer/Lasher is such bullshit, same goes for Light Assaults who can carry 2 SMGs at the same time, or a shotgun and a SMG with ambushers. Harsh negative penalties need to happen, such as highly reduced reserve ammo for both primary or secondary, or longer reload and twice as long draw time for both your guns. Giving advantages like this only to players who have like 400 hours on a single account is absurd.


2bc285  No.15693844

>>15687776

I think they should buff the indirect damage on AI ESF noses and pods, but put other negatives on them, like -1s time required for lock-on, or -50% afterburn fuel, or "this weapon is incompatible with fire suppression."

>>15692620

ASP opens the door for alternate playstyles. Getting tooled on by an LA using a gapcloser and two close-range weapons isn't really crazy, considering he could gapclose and tool on you with a shotgun or an SMG individually just as fine. Getting raped by an engineer spamming an LMG and standing on his ammo pack is questionable, but the mobility sacrifice of the LMGs squishes engis anyway because they have no overshield.

You talking about the NC or TR battlerifle?

Personally I'm pretty annoyed that the tranu are having the better items everywhere.

Their rifle has infinite ammo, no bullet drop, also has better hipfire, and comes with an attachment which makes it full auto when hipfiring.

Safety Override is a unique rail attachment that improves Obelisks’s Hip Fire Accuracy by 25%, like a Laser Sight. When Hip Fired, it also makes the weapon fully automatic, doubles Rate of Fire, but halves the damage and Heat per Shot.

Which is more of a TR factional thing, not VS.

They seem to get the better side of everything.

After finally buffing the almost useless range of the Vulcans so it can actually kill stuff making harrasser Vulcans fun again, a month later it gets hit right back with a nerf due to constant crying on the forums and reddit.

So do they nerf anything that is actually of use and kills for TR? Game is a joke.


ad18f9  No.15711718

>>15711516

Not to mention, their new LMG is literally just an Anchor with 10 more rounds per mag and the best hipfire across all LMGs, and they get the fucking advanced laser sight too.

I'd be fine with the VS battle rifle if it just didn't have a heat mechanic and had drop off like the rest. Give it a charged up shot mechanic or something.

>>15711650

The Vulcan was OP and the best harasser top gun in the entire game for 3 months. You could point and shoot it and unlike the Mjolnir/Aphelion missing a few shots isn't too crucial because your DPS was still really fucking high. It also was the best in Harasser v Harasser.

Yes, the TR still have arguably the best assault rifle in the game, some of the best CQC carbine options, the universally useful 10+ rounds per mag advantage, a good tank that has a ton of potential if used wisely and the second best ESF in the game, with undoubtedly the best A2G AI nosegun in the game.


3cfa18  No.15711737

>>15711516

The dragoon is objectively inferior to all the others, this is something i really can't understand.

To bring it on par with the others you need the attachments, else you get 2 fucking shots less in the mag, no higher fire rate despite the automatic option, and useless attachment of explosive ammo giving a pityful 75 splash damage withing a very small area.


9b0a85  No.15711827

I agree. Its completely gimped in every way. If you want some factional weapons which aren't shit you have to join the tranu or burger group.

NC weapons feel a lot better personally. The better damage makes the guns feel good. Verses the default TR gun where you spray them with a bunch of bullets and they stand with health to spare.


ad18f9  No.15711956

>>15711926

Versus what TR default gun? The Carv is a reliable and powerful LMG if you can maintain headshots with a lot of ammo, the Cycler is one of the best guns in the entire game because of great DPS and low recoil and the Trac 5 is a very strong CQC carbine. The default TR pistol is also arguably the best.

One of the dev says how he's working on fixing a patch and he's getting nothing but praise, "oh you take as much time as you need, we're right behind you, buying the next anniversary edition to help support the game, the game is awesome keep doing what you're doing, i love this, this gun is awesome more of it"

No complaints, no criticisms, no questions about the future of the game to the dev, just sucking up. Fuck me.

Heads up, double XP for a week and a free NSX-P Naginata if you redeem the code "6YearsPS2" in game.

>patch notes

Magrider receives its intended speed increase as mentioned in the last update.

NS-AM8 Shortbow can now actually be obtained from alert rewards. (Sorry for the inadvertent tease.)

New empire specific camos have been added to the continent alert reward pool.

Speculative fix for Critical Chain implant sometimes remaining on indefinitely.

The VS Rift Knight armor set now has proper icons and descriptions.

Tutorial has been re-enabled.

Probably because other "mmo" games the company took care of got terminated recently. You never know when PS2 will get terminated too. PS2 is one of a kind so people worship and appreciate it more than anything else who can see the beauty of it.I did a complaint on the reddit once, got like 1-2 upvotes. . .

pick any path and drive the prowler/vanguard/magrider along it and time it. The magrider wins every time

the key here is the magrider doesnt decelerate on inclines like the prowler or vanguard do. Its able to maintain its speed to a degree

Its balanced like a turd.

Runs like a turd.

Community is mlg tryhards (and the salt that comes with it)

3 factions but mostly the devs play vanu

Most of the people working on the game are completely different from who made it and its questionable if they know how most of their shit works.

I was at an highly populated amp station fight last night and i asked in proximity if anyone would play the game if it wasnt free. Just about everyone replied "the game is a piece of shit" or "no".

If you have 30 gigs and some time to kill check it out. Though be warned the only reason most of us played is because we had each other to play with and the outfit is pretty dead. We might get more people on this week because of double xp but im doubtful.

It's free, go for it. It's probably best if you get some older player to tutor you though, this game can be confusing for new players and responding to every question in the thread is annoying.

Things to keep in mind:

Do not buy new weapons until you have auraxiumed your default ones.

Auraxiuming means getting 1160 kills on a single weapon, that will grant you 200 certification points and once you have auraxiumed 5 weapons in one category (LMG, Assault Rifle, Carbine, et cetera) you will get an unique version that will have some sort of benefit that no other gun has.

Your default weapons are the best in nearly every faction and weapon type. The only exception I can think of is the default pistol for the Vanu, which is pretty bad.

I highly suggest getting your Medigun and Repair Tool to one level below maximum rank as fast as possible, it will increase your speed of reviving, healing and repairing a ton.

Unlock 2 or 3 levels of the Medkit item in utility. It's a universal unlock for all classes, and will make you far more survivable.

I suggest playing either Combat Medic or Heavy Assault. Heavy Assault essentially has 3 health bars in the form of a overshield, making him the most survivable class in the game.

Try to join in during hours when there's more players, whatever the regional peak hours are depending on what server you choose.

If you can't find a fight, redeploy with the U key and press the Join Combat button, it will put you in some sort of fight on the map most of the time. Follow other people to combat. See a train of buses going at a base? Go with them.

Don't worry about KDR or any bullshit like that, just keep playing. Gitgud is a gradual process in this game.

Make a character on each faction and play them for about an hour or two. See what you like and then stick with it.

Also: Don't join in to play with /v/. Seriously, the outfit is dead. Join in to just play the game.

how does anyone aurax anything anymore?

I remember auraxing a bunch of weapons over Christmas break 2014, but that was on Emerald when everything was packed

unless they lowered the kills required then it must be much tougher now

also having prestige items that are obtained by number of kills, rather than some other stat related to the difficulty of kills is the worst thing ever as it encourages everyone to farm the hapless new players

would be much better if there was an incentive to hunt veterans and high rank accounts

If they made account levels have some weight that would help with what you're suggesting.

In game there is no real way to tell a new player from a regular except having no cosmetics, but even then I see high level players that have none.

The game came out in 2012, and I can still fucking tell you, to this day, I genuinely remember my first deployment and the absolute clusterfuck the game was, and how almost magical the game was at the time, seriously, nothing else could compare.

I kind of think a lot of people in general tried it, and in around 2014-16 it stagnated enough that people started the whole meme it was dead, since at that time the game wasn't getting any real updates, and it was just "buy my microtransaction goyim!" for some fucking guns, with little to nothing else. For a solid two years almost.

Now we're kinda at the point where yeah, we're getting some updated, but SOE is shutting shit down and the new semi-major updates are kinda a last-ditch effort it feels like almost. Hell, Combined Arms update was an absolute shitshow of an update. Don't get me started on liberators and how your only use is to either farm biolabs, harass newbie bases, or pray to Almighty Jesus that an ESF doesn't see you since the fucking Dalton got nerfed and tail AA is the same as firing a FUCKING .22 at a goddamned tank.

the bots wont be higher health at all unlike the specops boredom shit the GMs would spawn in PS1 they will just aid the lowest pop faction in a hex when they get deployed which could help with pop problems except its members only forever so its automatically just a good goy bonus rather than a feature that could have helped the flow of game

Whales are gonna start underpopping tranu to get to play as robutts, which in turn will create a feedback loop in which tranu will be perma-underpopped.

Its not hard to reach high HSR if you can aim straight.

Most I have ever gotten on anything is 30% HSR.

Who cares? The problem has ALWAYS been CPU limitations in large battles.

>Wanted to play Planetside 2 when it was new but had shit pc

>Only got a good enough pc to play it when it's basically dead

I still play it to this day as TR but I feel like I basically missed out on the game.

Also, what was WWEW?

perhaps theres a chance of reviving the magic when they update to DX11 which should theoretically provide massive performance boosts for everyone with a GPU (unless they are "let the frozen yogurt CEO do all the porting work" levels of retarded)

I'm sure that a couple of people will come back to try out the new continent when it comes out, so be on the lookout for that. it'll still only last for a week or two though, so be quick about it

At this point it's too splintered to last even a week.

Are you dumb? The advantage of using DX11 means that you can push more cycles out onto the far faster graphics processor, which then gives the CPU more headroom to work with.

>DX11 is only now become a thing for ps2

I hate how shit this industry is. IIRC DX11 was around since 08, and PS2 was released in 2012.
