I'm still really enjoying it.

Absolutely you can. People don't give the stock weapons enough credit. An upgraded stock weapon can be better than half of the guns that are for sale in the depot.

Hopefully they get rid of some of the lower pop servers in the coming months and force you to merge with the more popular ones (Mattherson/Waterson on the east coast). I bet they do this when they add the next continent Hossin.

The Roadmap is a great idea....worth mentioning that the items are voted up/down a-la-Reddit style to help the devs focus on the more important changes and push off the ones that have negative feedback with the players.

I'm on pretty much every night NC on Waterson and VS on Mattherson

Planetside is one of those games that just makes me sad it's F2P.

Its just like, such a cool fucking game, and I just wish I could plop $60 down and play it like any normal shooter instead of having to think about the fucking economy all the time.

For $60 you can buy pretty much every alternative gun you would really want. TBO nothing in the store is 100% needed to do well. The whole cert earning process just takes actually playing the game to progress. Players can hold their own with stock guns that are certed properly over a gun that is purchased with no attachments.

PS2 is an FPS first and an MMO second. Last I checked whether it was COD or WoW, you have to pur some hours in to unlock items and progress.

This is why I stopped. Basic stuff like red dot sights should not take hours to unlock. It's crazy

It really doesn't take much to rack up some certs in the game. you get 1 for every 250xp you get which can be from killing enemies, capping points, healing/repairing etc. You also get 12 per day just for logging in. I agree that 1,000 for some of the unlocks is a bit steep but then again they're incentivising (sp?) you to spend money. Do you NEED red dot sights on all your weapons? The stock loadouts work just fine.

I also agree that the new user experience could be improved. It's tough for someone never who has never played the game before, to just jump right into the middle of a huge battle without even remapping the keys yet. I say give the game a chance and definitely find an outfit to join or tag along with. It's a completely different (better) game with other people.
