    You mean reaver to good? Reaver has the most maneuverability of any of the assault air vehicles.

    Reaver = Tank pusher

    Mosquito = Air pusher

    Scythe = pew pewlazerz

    I play vs...

    Magrider gets crushed by vanguards. The only tank thats shit right now is prowler because it lacks the mobility & the power. Only thing going for it is RoF.

    Playing as Light Assault on TR, one issue I come across is I will start shooting someone, hit them lots and they won't die, they proceed to shoot me and I die a second later. Anyone else get this?
    Yeah, I dunno. I've had several really questionable scenarios, notably one last night where I was in a MAX and came up behind a guy and just started unloading on him and was getting all the damage notifications and such, but he simply would NOT go down. Then he sloooowly turned to look at me, took a few shots, and down I went.

    That extreme has only happened to me once, but I've heard a lot of people talking about it, so I dunno.

    In the start I had problem to see who was with me, and who my enemy was, so I pretty much ran around shooting things that looked suspicious and/or red. Apparently the Terran faction are red, but it took me a while to understand that...

    After some time I died and spawned in some kind of HQ, and there I found out that I could change profession. I fell in love with the MAX armour or whatever it was named, the really heavy armoured machine-gun wielding thing.

    I'm still really confused with the game, but it's fun from time to time. But I get the feeling that there are many hackers that play those sniper guys, since I got instant killed by thoseby just sticking my head out from a corner.

    Overall, pretty fun, and a cool game, but very confusing. I got a lot to learn if I want to continue playing it.
    It needs a tutorial or something quite honestly. Right now it's just jump in and figure it out along the way.

    They're all the same, just the starting guns for the factions are different. They all have the same ones otherwise.

    It's not shit it's called variety, it was the exact same difference in Planetside. I've taken on 3 vanguards at the same time in my prowler and beaten them with ease, the prowler is the middle ground being more agile than the vanguard and harder hitting than the mag. They've actually recreated the strengths and weaknesses of the tanks pretty well (apart from the lack of water for the mag to take advantage of).
    Her hall is called Eljudnir,
    her dish is Hunger,
    her knife is Famine,
    her slave is Lazy,
    and Slothful is her woman servant.

    I think you mean Reaver has the least maneuverability. Scythe has the most, whereas Mosquito has the highest top-speed.

    Steam client for this "game" is following in EA's SWTOR fail footsteps of not allowing Chinese access. Pathetic.

    There's generally legal reasons for that. I don't think China is technically allowed on any global clients actually >.>

    The launcher with the Chinese language option would say otherwise. SWTOR also refused to admit they blocked Chinese connections. Hopefully this is only a temporary issue.

    Note trying to login with Mandarin selected also fails.

    Maybe there's a separate client that you can't get through Steam?

    It hasn't got the turning speed, fire-power or acceleration of the other two, about the only area it excels in is breaking quickly and I suppose hovering. Any Air-support in general isn't powerful enough to warrant control of the continents, AA counters aircraft a bit too hard at the moment, couple that with the fact that dogfights are just people spinning in circles trying to spot each other long enough to get a few shots off.
    I get outmanouvered by Scythes, but I have no trouble getting away from or turning a dogfight against the NC flyer.

    AA counters too hard? Not the case. If you have 5-6 Liberators with the big 105 mm gun, they will brutalize everything on the ground and there's fuckall the ground troops can do about it. Usually we can get a TR air zerg going every now and then, and nothing can defend against it.


    I was one of probably 7 or 8 MAX suits with dual AA guns trying to defend the Crown earlier tonight, and it was impossible, we got torn to bits.
    Lightning with Skyguard can't take a damn worth of damage, the aim is really off and the damage is weaker than the MAX AA guns -and- the range is much shorter.
    Scythes with air-to-ground pods are monsters, those pods do so much damage. Whilst I in a Mosquito have to unload half my rockets or more to kill infantry.

    I also feel that the main weapon for TR Heavy Assault is quite bad, much worse than both the VS and NC equivalents because the first bullets are really off-target and they when they do hit they aren't hitting hard enough.

    I also feel that the TR MAX suit is worse off than the other two. I can get infantry kills with dual Pounders, but I have to literally hit people in the face with them to do so. Quite decent against tanks though, but I can't really stand toe-to-toe with a tank long enough, the Heavy Assault has much greater mobility and is better against vehicles.

    What are you talking about? Quite sure there are more unique guns than similar guns.

    Prowler can be fun against infantry, 2 HE rounds is boss to have.
    Magriders being crushed though? Only in close quarters. Much like in beta, I see Magriders being used as artillery rather than as tanks pushing a front. And why not? They have extreme accuracy and manouverability, easily dodging shots from a long distance and responding to said shots at the same time.
    It's almost a requirement for Heavy Assault to have heatseeking rockets so Magriders won't dodge your rockets.

    Scythe maneuverability is top of the line, a good Scythe pilot is damn near impossible to beat in a one on one dogfight. I haven't lost to a reaver yet, on the other hand, all they know how to do is stall out which is insanely easy to predict (since that's all they do) and follow up. The scythe has so many more options to peel people that it's really no contest. The reaver is a lot scarier to ground units, though, I believe. I still love my mosquito the best.

    The prowler sucks though, no doubt. Not good for much other than stomping infantry, the heat is too inaccurate for anything medium-long range so unless you want to spend certs and dedicate yourself to being a driver you should do something else...

    I need to install this.

    Planetside was my first MMO (I was in the original beta) and I loved it to death even though I was awful at it. Fast-forward 9 years and I'm actually decent at FPS games now, so this should be a lot of fun.

    Edit: How is the population balance, anywho? It was almost always TR > VS > NC at like 36%, 33%, 30%. Sometimes VS and TR would swap, but NC was always dead last in population.

    Have you checked out streams of scythe pilots? I learned a lot about being a mosquito from watching other people, especially how to handle reavers and scythes. I still have huge issues with scythes and no issues with reavers, though. As someone who never watches other people play video games, I can safely say that planetside 2 is fun to watch on its own :x

    As far as I'm aware it seems fine for a few, but my server has NC more than the others, despite them losing more territory for some reason.

    Did you make an Eu account?

    Furthermore did you download the Eu client?

    Edit: http://www.planetside2.eu/

    From there essentially. To explain, SOE have passed control of the Eu servers to some German company with a less than strong approval rating. So really, just create your account, download the Eu client and pray you never have to interact with them on much of a level.

    So far on woodman (EU) the population seems to be around 33% all during the day and at night the TR go to like 36-37% so on average a quite balanced server.

    There is no way to defend base!! If they have sunderer deployed in secure place and the swarms of enemies coming out of it endlessly can't be stopped at certain point. The only way to get a base back is to wait for them to move to another area and then capture it back with light resistance. This need to be addressed because this defeat the purpose of defending a base.
