Do we split up or stick together?

#1 Edited by Grimhild (723 posts) -

To whom it may concern:

With the actual release of Planetside 2 around the corner and the GB Outfit Poll being somewhat evenly divided, I'm starting to wonder if maybe we shouldn't have a GB Outfit for each faction on different coasts of the US, EU and Australia. Though, while it would make everyone happy, I still think it would be amazing to roll into a continent with the 280+ duders that voted on the poll and steamrolling. I was going to make this another poll but A. I can't on this forum and would have to get it moved which I'm too lazy to do right now and B. The poll would be pretty long for each combination of Faction and Server, the latter of which I don't have a list of since the beta is now officially closed.

Also names?

101st LincolnForce Division?

1st Luchadeers Brigade?

Opinions and/or thoughts? Just curious.

EDIT: Including for relevance:

Does anyone from the EU know how bad the lag was to the US servers? I'm assuming beyond awful but just in case its playable. If not, we really need a new poll for the EU side.

But kitchen related games suck! And this is getting a little off-topic already. I'll leave.

I'm going to have high ping and low skill so I'll go in first wherever we're going, haha.

In regards to faction, though I voted I really don't care about the faction too much. If I can have a list of duders to roll with then I will join any faction, even the laser beam people (I like bullets, not laser beams!).

Maybe just a list of all the GB duders that are going to play and what faction they are choosing and server they picked would be better serving than forming a actual GB group, then people can side with who they want in whatever location they reside in.

Honestly I just want to play with you duders regardless of what side we are on. Someone who wants to be in charge just post the server information on Tuesday and I'll join up.

Wait. There are multiple servers?! I thought the whole point of Planetside 2 was that they were finally going to do the "one big universe" thing?

Meh. Having to pick the right server and then the right faction just to be able to play with other people you might know is a great way to really piss me off in a game. I'm not going to put that much thought into it. I'm going to pick a server and faction that floats my boat at the time and if I see some of you guys there, I'll see some of you guys there. If not, then not. If you see "Branthog", that'll be me.

@Branthog: Multiple servers, and 3 separate continents/maps to play on within each server.

Yeah, I was just looking at them in the interface. Kinda sucks. I could almost see a different server per continent, but I really like the idea of one unified world. *sigh*.

On the other hand, I guess I understand the need since this is more FPS-ish and therefore more hampered by any network issues.

I guess I'll be on Benson (US WEST). Seems like almost all the servers are LOW. A few MEDIUM and HIGH, but none on the west coast. Kind of surprised!

Like I said in the poll post, I am good with whatever. I just want to hang with all you duders and shoot some space guns.

I just downloaded the game and am probably going to roll with Vanu Sovereignty; don't know why though.
