Planetside 2 Catch-All

Come on people. This poll is not going to pick Terran Republic all by itself. For tradition!

So apparently anyone who has ever had a paid account in the past can play the next 30 days free. Just re-installed and made sure first hand before I mentioned it here.

I thought about that, but I have no idea what my old Station ID or password is. Certainly different than what I'm using now.

me either. I was sure I played P1 but thinking back, I thinkI was just part of closed and then the very long Open beta.

The original Planetside is still a blast, despite horrendous lag due to my location and some very antiquated gameplay design in places. It still does a bunch of stuff that no other modern FPS does.

Managed to get a Galaxy cert. It's loads of fun seeing ten people suddenly burst out in drop pods and zip off towards some enemy tower or base.

Fun stuff. The last time I touched PS was during the Reserves. Saw a lot more organized play today than I expected.

Hot dropping a galaxy or three never gets old.

TR sanctuary, waiting for the fleet to lift off, there were so many vehicles that the radar was having fits. It would only display a portion of the assembled vehicles at a time, took about 5 passes to show all of them, then it would repeat, portion by portion.

Sadly, the gunship I was the tail gunner for didn't make it out of the warpgate, too many hostiles flying around. I ended up on foot, and blew a wasp out of the air with a salvo from a rocklet, using frags for flak.

Just participated in a huge TR flying attack.

Was in the back piloting one of the huge gunships (the one the guy with the camera runs back to). Watching the entire armada take off line by line was... memorable.

@planetside2 on twitter has started doing trivia based on vids on the game. So instead of keying endless keys from their twitter account that are already claimed, you answer a question and they DM you keys.

So I finally got one.

Conga Rats!
I'm hoping to do so as well. I'm still sending them pleas but I'm hoping to catch one of the trivia tweets.

They did several over the 4th. I missed a bunch before I happened to be close to my PC in time to answer one by the cut off.

They seem to go back and forth between those and the keys in the feed posts that I gave up on as futile. They seem to give away multiples for answers to questions, so that seems like the easiest bet.

Begging like a begging beggar worked for me and got me a key.

I quoted a few lines from a well known movie, 4 separate tweets, ending in
"If I only had a key"

Got one! WOOT!

Those of you who recently got keys, did you play Planetside 1?

Nope.

Those of you who recently got keys, did you play Planetside 1? Curious if you did and still got another key.

Ok, I was getting a bit worried since I played PS1 and was just waiting around for a key now hehe

I got mine off of twitter. It's not like it's opened to us yet, but I'd assume that once they start letting more people in, we'll be able to play. I'd assume they'll take care of the PS1 people at least at the same time if not earlier.

Nope, just beta

Faction specific neckties for Planetside 2! Let's make this a reality.

So word is beta starts tomorrow for some..

http://www.planetside-universe.com/s...

Signed up for beta. Was a vet of Planetside 1 (wonder if they'll let me in early? I signed up with my old station account). Would have kept playing if the people I played with didn't dwindle to virtually nil.

So is the poll set in stone? Is GWJ going Vanu?

Also, does anyone who played Planetside 1 know how to get in on this 30-day free play thing for vets?

EDIT: NM, I think it was an old promo that is no longer valid. Late to the party yet again, F7.

Nooooo! Why must it start well i'm waiting for my new computer to be shipped.

I just scored a beta code from a friend of mine that was 10 minutes away from where Matt Higby was getting his haircut. He's going to go to another event tomorrow to get the rest of our core outfit members codes as well. Viva NC!

Now, the thing is: I am still counting on existing subscribers getting a code. If so, that means I can give his gifted code to my son, which will do a lot to secure my position as Coolest Dad of All his Friends. I can't pass that up.

Is anyone else that signed up for the beta keep getting the survey question button even though you already submitted it on their main site?

They know just how to keep up the hype, don't they? Excuse me well I go rewatch the videos and pretend I'm playing.

Yep, expect a lot more write ups and videos released since the media has been given the OK to circulate.

That video... must have now!

As long as they have followed in the footsteps of PS1 where you can be functional out of the gate, I will be playing this game for a long, long time!

I love how you chose your vehicle and you spawn in it instead of having to run to it before someone else takes it.
