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

Well, there are no Oceanic servers. There will be EU and US servers.

It is all going to depend on how many players are interested come launch day. There will be a lot more buzz once the game gets into open beta. If only a couple of dozen people are keen then chances are all the TOG gaming would happen in one timezone and faction. Its too early to tell right now I think.

If there is no VS TOG group and the Vanu end up being as much to my liking as I expect them to be then I will be very tempted to join the VS on the server the TOG NC group is in. Just for the occasional chance that I will come across another togger, even if its at the other end of my crosshairs...

My primary will be NC but I will play other servers from time to time to experience the other factions. Just for... err... tactical purposes only tho.. yeah.. that sounds good

TOG was a NC outfit ,when you see the vids and they talk about being NC or TR or barney,thats what planetside did to you . It wasn't like other game where you played one side or the other .NC for life........ rolling with a platoon of 30 on TS ,in an army of 500 with other outfits [legion of the dammed ,hoard ect ] that become like brothers night after night.
It was a game played over time not rounds,so you got to know your mates standing by you as you defended the tec plant for a couple of hours ,then to roll amour with driver and gunner to fight back
most had alts but only low level cos they ended up as grease in the tracks of a vanguard

GO THE GECKO

This is interesting.....

The next thing I noticed is the full flight-stick setup on Higby's gaming desk, complete with foot pedals. Imagine my delight when Higby revealed he was using the controller setup to play PlanetSide 2.

In the original PlanetSide, flight has a barebones, floating-camera feeling to it. Anyone can hop into a Mosquito or Galaxy and instantly become a successful pilot. In PlanetSide 2, flying has been reworked from the ground up. I had the chance to sample PlanetSide 2's flight at E3, and I'd describe it as a mix of jet and helicopter flight from Battlefield and Arma 2. I crashed. A lot. Like in Battlefield 3, vehicles now give the sensation they have true mass, and if you're not managing the throttle and hover controls, your plane will drop like a stone. Until you learn what you're doing and get a feel for it, it's straight-up hard.

Its nice to know there are obsolete vehicles in the game as well. That poor tank looked so clumsy and slow, almost like it could barely navigate the little bumps in terrain. I feel sorry for the poor players that have to drive that bucket.

Been playing a little Tribes:Ascend to whet my appetite- I'm really ready for this (now if I just get in beta).

The stream is crap but if you are like me you will take anything, 35 minutes of studio game play.

I am half way through it now. It looks fantastic, even though Higby is lacking any sort of skill.

I am just way too excited for this game.
