    I don't really remember what I was doing (I think hunting for another MMOFPS upcoming), but I ran across a recruitment video for Sturm Grenadier (A rival Planetside outfit we faced on Emerald) on YouTube. Now, while I still despise those guys (in a friendly-rivalry kind of way) it got me all horny for Planetside again.

    Now, I know Xen of Onslaught will not be restarting a Planetside campaign again which I personally think is very unfortunate. There have been times where I have resubbed and tried to get by playing form time to time with a few people, but it just wasn't the same. So what do I do now to cure this massive FPS itch of mine I have had since XoO-PS went under? Join a new outfit.

    On the 15th of July, I will be resubscribing to Planetside on my CR5/BR23 Vanu (who should be on the newly merged Gemeni server). Upon entering the sanctuary, I will attempt to join an organized outfit. For those who haven't had great experiences in Planetside and would like to see what it is really like, or for those who have never played and want to see what all the fuss is about from us XoO vets, now is your chance. Anyone and everyone is welcome to join me, and I'm sure if I bring a number of people with me joining an outfit will be easy. I can assist any members who are inexperienced with the game at all times, since I still remember it (and follow the patches and additions to the game, like the Galaxy Gunship and the Phantom additions) to this day.

    Planetside sucks when you solo. Sure, there are a few things you can do by yourself to assist the empire, but the real fun is getting an organized squad/platoon on Vent and coordinating massive assaults on enemy constructs.

    So if anyone is willing to join me, please let me know. I may head over and see if The Ghosts of the Revolution are still around, since I have a personal history with them. Again, I will be resubbing on the 15th of July to rejoin Planetside.

    honestly if your gonna try it, you need to join an active outfit cause it gets boring without a good size squad or more I find ;)

    Oh, it is, Jeb...It is. I'm checking out GotR right now, and it seems like their forums are still pretty big. I'm going to register and check them out a bit more. I might resub earlier than the 15th as well, I'll have to see.

    I found PhoenixDog on the PSPlayers page (here) but I thought he was higher than BR21. Hm...Guess I haven't really played him much since the BR's went up from 20 to 25. Still have a decent kill list though, even though I wasn't much of a killer in Planetside but more of a support/commander figure.

    Now I just need to find out which account PhoenixDog is on...

    If you want to join a really good outfit (besides Sturmgrenadier because, according to the last time i checked, they make you pay a fee to join) google the Black Widow Company. When I wanted to get back into PS for the second time (and XoO PS members were scattered into the wind) I looked them up on the PS forums and they are the real deal. When I joined I couldn't believe the level or organization and, if I entrusted myself to their relatively rigid program and gave them a chance, the level of fun I could have. As a whole outfit theres a very good chance they were even better than SG, and they don't make you pay any kind of fee. Of course, if you do join you have to go through training programs and pay heed to a disciplined chain of command... but in my opinion thats the only way to play Planetside, and when you get used to it you start to have some real fun.

    I don't recall what server they were on, but its worth rerolling in my opinion. However, only do it if you're really going to commit to PS for a while once again--otherwise it's not worth it. If you just wanna screw around with PS again, this outfit is not for you. I personally am not interested in even getting back into PS on account of my apprehension for Starcraft 2. If I'm going to be playing any game untill the beta it's SC: BW. Even though that's just my personal state of affairs, I know there are some PS players who intend to play in the beta soooo.... yea.. keep that in mind.

    I would like to keep PhoenixDog though, who is on the VS. I also would like to stay VS, since the NC and TR can go fuck themselves. I've put a lot of time into PhoenixDog and don't want to throw it away.

    note that emerald is no more... they merged the NA servers into a new server :( although I guess it's good to merge the populations but I liked the emerald name ;)

    I agree. We're Gemini now. And I found an account I had with a 14-day and rejoined GotR. Anyone who joins is welcome to join me with them. I'll probably be resubbing tonight/tomorrow rather than waiting.

    I got shit to do tonight, but when I go back I'll be on my main again. Make sure if anyone joins the game, they join the Gemini Server, and the Vanu Sovereignty. Look for someone who is in Ghosts of the Revolution, and talk to them about joining.

    The biggest problem though is how boring it is alone. I have a history with GotR, so I think it's a good fit for me (and anyone wanting to join me). I'm all for repping XoO, more-so than most actually...But when it comes to Planetside, it's all about the large coordinated assaults.
     
  17. I hate you Pdog, yet another game I may have to play again where I can only use the land vehicles cause I can't fly if my life depended on it... ugh me in a bomber was bad... just badd..
    I may resub for a bit, but only if your serious.. cause it is boring being alone. Mind my char in VS isn't very high level wise and I can't remember how to do anything in the game.. but I'm interested.. hmm should play better then it did on my old machine though.

    I'm very interested in jamming some PS but I'm busy with class until late July. As soon as I'm done with summer semester I'll be ready to jam.

    Well, I will be resubbing PhoenixDog tonight, and I have been accepted to GotR so I'll be running with them. If you do wish to join let me know in-game. Gemini Server, Vanu Sovereignty, PhoenixDog. I'll get you an invite to GotR. Whats even more awesome (for the old PS vets) is that they use Teamspeak. Better command structure layout to it than Vent.

    See you in game...Hopefully. I'll be on quite a bit tonight.
