    Seems you missed out on how to play Planetside. Lets leave the petty playground talk there shall we?

    The current range is fine, i can already see and kill other people from 800 - 1000ish meters away, there is absolutely no need to increase that.
    That may be the way you play but your not helping your team out much by doing so and you actually get less certs/points by playing that way, if that is what you enjoy then fair enough but it would go against the "team play" philosophy of the game if the devs where to encourage playing that way by changing the render distance.

    i agree, ive been playing sniper a bit, i was giving a bit of over watch cover while my squad captured a base. there is really no reason to be that far away to shoot them. i spent most of my time as a sniper close to my squad, i would not have been much use if i was really far away.

    That's not true at all. Maybe your pc is pretty bad, and you should upgrade. Because I have been in so many large battles and not had this issue at all.

    EDIT:meh guess I'm wrong looking on the official forums. I haven't experienced this, maybe I'm just playing on a lower population server, and its not having the same impact /shrug.

    Why is the TR so popular? On my server, they pretty much own the entire land on two maps.

    Same for me...not played a shooter online for years and i was just starting to kill people when the servers went down for the second time tonight(uk)
    Checking their facebook page it would seem fairly common

    Was the same in Planetside, TR generally had the higher population yet were considered the underdogs a lot of the time because of the difference in faction-specific equipment. We're like vicious elmo ants swarming your smurf and barney picnics.

    I was online for a bit after the patch today and there was some strange stuff going on. My whole squad was getting killed by a sniper we couldn't see. I was killed outside, in buildings, every where by the same guy over and over again. Also a friend and I were killed at a capture point by another person that we couldn't see. He was always on the point because it was always being capped to his side if we left, yet never there. Would just get instakilled from the same guy over and over.

    I'm going to assume some people found a glitch and was exploiting it. Shorty after that the servers all went down.

    Anyone else want SOE to add controller support?. Mouse and keyboard is never an acceptable control method for me when it comes to flying vehicles. For me it's just an overall better experience using a controller.

    I don't recommend it. You might find it slightly easier to control, but you won't be able to pull off some of the fancier manoeuvres that can win dogfights, you'll be torn to shreds by skilled pilots using the Mouse & Keyboard.

    On that note, does anyone know how to max the vertical sensibility ?
    I maxed the "Flight sensibility" and it's fine to roll but when it comes to go up/down (litteraly, like pulling/pushing my mouse) on the axis, it's VERY slow compared to the other axis.

    Edit: Rephrasing with proper vocabulary :

    Roll is fine, pitch has an extremely low sens.

    Bind pitch up to a key, problem solved

    Anyway, if you don't already see where I'm going with this, allow me to spell it out: the only meaningful MMORPG "endgame" -- i.e., something novel to do after the progression process is over -- is that of the sandbox.

    Busy downloading this now, looks awesome, are the battles really as big as they're made out to be ?

    Apparently battles can take days or weeks to complete ?

    I figured out if you bought 10k SC (50$) is enough to buy you best weapon for each class and also 2-3 vehicles weapons you like to use. especially guided air/ground missiles because mostly no one till now unlocked IR Flares so you are scoring like hell with both these rocket launchers
