    Can I see a show of guns for a retro PlanetSide Tank / Bomber night?

    With the free play period I'd like to set up a regular night for all interested Old Time Geckos to get together.

    I'm thinking 9pm PST Friday or Saturdays until the free sub runs out

    Who's with me?

    There's a free 7 day trial. You too can have retro fun. Download, give bogus email and have fun.

    ... looks like I'm going to have to email a few people about this post...

    Reoh... I hear it's only 12 v 12. :( Otherwise I'd be very interested. Looks like I'm good for Friday night, but getting taken out of town by the wife on Saturday.

    I have a Dev Q&A submitted to them now, just waiting for them to return them so I can prepare an article. RogueSlayer did one on them too recently. Yes Bayland the exact size of squads is somewhat limited in some regards but not in others. For example, you might have 5 different 12v12 attacks simultaneously to different but linked areas. For example. I might be sent to hit a power genator to take it out, which lowers the shields in yours to let you have an easier time of gaining access to the enemy base.

    The smaller size is actually whats attracting me, after spending too much time on overcrowded maps in other FPS games. That and persistant online play, I'd really like to see TOG set up their own agency in the game and compete in the territorial control bouts that span a few months (before changing to all new maps).

    There's also single player and co-op pve modes for groups to experience. Its a lot like TF2, the developers have openly admited that the game was heavily influenced by that old favorite of theirs.

    BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD EMPEROR !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hail All TOG's

    Hello Guys, how are you all doing. I have been playing PS on and off again for the past several months now. No I have not resubbed. SOE simply took too much of my money. I simply create a trail acct and burn up my 14 days and start over. I have found a home with NC Spec Ops. There are a great bunch of guys and usually fill 10-20 positions most nights I try to log in. They have a dedicated TS server as well which as we all know helps dramatically. As their name states they do runs Ops most of the time.

    However since the 45 days free play came on I have been on my main char burning up /c chat and sending Globals like a madman. Col.Ripper was on with us the other night and I hope he had a blast. Even though he was not linked into comms with us. We ran dedicated Armor on Oshur for awhilealong with a few Gal drops. I encourage any and all TOG's to join in on the fun. It would be great to see some old friends on the field of battle. StoneRhino, Brandonator, NoTarget, Caladnei, Celebran, and LordReaver just to name a few of the LotD clan have been seen logging in over the past two weeks. Most of these guys have not been organized but they are playing. If you log in and find yourself alone? Hook up with the NC Spec Ops crew and tell 'em Stress sent ya. You;ll be treat well I guarantee it.

    Looking for ward to see you all online soon

    Cheers

    * Salute

    Gah. I got held up by traffic tonight didn't get online until 9:30. Sorry to those who showed up and whom I missed. I've been roped into family duty before our daughter goes back to school. It looks like next Friday or Saturday should be the big day. Can I get a show of guns?


    Dates:

    Friday Aug 14 at 9pm.
    Saturday Aug 15 8pm. (I'll be on at 9pm.)

    Derf. Update that daily message!

    Thanks Bay for the E-mail! Brought back some great memory's.
    I'll try and make room on my hard drive to load up PlanetSide.
    Would be great to get back into a Vannie and ride with the Gecko's again!!

    Hope to see you in game on the 14th or 15th :)

    Played it the last two nights - still trying to remember what all the commands are and why I had my inventory set up the way I did. Hacker/Pilot......... So far, just getting shot out of the sky.

    The game has changed dramatically for cloakers and pilots. You'll need to review your certs.


    Woot! Krag!
