The game is architected to be much more ping-tolerant than the likes of smaller-map FPS games (counterstrike etc), so having a slightly higher latency is somewhat less of an issue.

Also, I picked up my priority beta key out at E3 this year, so I'm down with it (NC ftw!)

I have a couple of questions for you Planetside 1 vets.

  1. Did TOG only play NC or did TOG also have people playing TR and VS? I ask of course because I am keen on the VS for PS2.
  2. If there were multiple groups, were they all on the same server so that toggers could shoot each other, or was each separate TOG faction in a different server?

I don't know Horror, wasn't in TOG then. There will have to be multiple groups as I am not playing no barney mate and you don't want to play smurfs and some want to be those bloody elmos

I Wouldn't worry about shooting each other on whatever server. The game is so large even running into each other in the same fight you may not even notice. Remember you are fighting on a continent (64 square kilometers) on a planet (covered with continents eventually) with claimed up to 2000 people per continent.

You need to put aside all notions of combat you may have from your usual FPS games like BF3 etc, PS1 made them look insignificant. PS2 promises to make PS1 look insignificant. It is a persistent war on a planet, a huge war!

BTW this is a good video for anyone that doesn't know about Planetside or wants to refresh a bit on Planetside 2. Somethings are out of date but still a recommended watch.

You have to remember, Planetside was, I think, the first MMO TOG ever got into, I believe prior to that they only played BF1942 and counterstrike. TOG was teeny at the time too, and there were almost no people outside of Australia. So when they started PS, it was like 15 guys, who had all been squading on the same BF servers, and they all picked NC and that was it. I am sure this time there will be multiple outfits running (although we all know the real TOG will be playing NC :P )

[edit] the Gecko better stay though :P

I wasn't there at the begining, but my understanding is there were only a limited number of choices for outfit logos, and we chose a gecko. I don't know the reason they chose that specific one though, Fox or Father would probably know though.

Soooo.... kinda what I'm getting here is that "TOG" should probably have a split presence in PS2?

It could get quite fragmented - empire (nc/vs/tr) x region (aus(Oceania)/na/eu) = 9 potential. Suggest we dont do that.

Do we want to split over 2 or 3, with a match of one primary timezone and a (unique) empire?
