Bluh, sounds like I might take a break from shotguns for a bit then. I guess ill give nighthawk a try sounds like it might be fun.

>>121118793
Nighthawk is a shitter haymaker/barrage, you just don't need to manually click. Fire rate, and I'm pretty sure spread, are worse.

If you've any skill at FPS's, then the haymaker/barrage are more or less straight upgrades.

Anyone have a video of the new butcher firing with it's spinup?

Well unlike in PS1 where it was used to refill power at bases, in PS2 it will be used for building AV and AA turrets and hopefully/eventually more base building and resource harvesting.
>>
>>121125005
Well, at least it's a start I guess.

I'm new to the game, and suck at pretty much all of it, the only thing that brings me some amount of enjoyment out of this clusterfuck, is driving a sunderer and supporting groups, rearming and repairing, that sort of thing.

PS1 was a lot friendlier to that sort of playstyle. It's a shame that they gutted most of it for PS2.

The playerbase embraced them gutting it, though.

Remember at release when Galaxies would still just chill at the warpgate to ferry people around?

>>121126793
>Remember at release when Galaxies would still just chill at the warpgate to ferry people around?


Yup, then the playerbase realized that the devs crammed 3 times as many bases as there should be per continent to the point that they are in walking distance of each other and transport logistics were not needed.

The devs should have listened to us PS1 vets...

Let me show you the average fight bigger than 1-12 that I've seen lately, regardless of faction.

>Then instead of having a fight your faction pulls EVEN MORE TANKS and kills all the spawns, restart from 1 except now it's your faction with the tanks and zerging and instead of getting shelled in a spawn it's your team doing the shelling, fights continue to be shit

Is it seriously too much to ask for a 50-50 fight without there being tanks out the ass/MAXes/airniggers?

sasuga shiTR
>>
>>121142475
wouldn't it be the best when anchored against ESFS?
>>
>>121142951
No, because you still need two shots to kill, compared to the vannie's one.
>>
>>121142951
No. While anchor definitely is a huge help, you still need to hit two shots instead of one, and if you pause for a bit to line up the second shot, any non-retarded ESF is going to boost off and start convulsing.
However, valks, libs and gals don't have that kind of maneuverability, and wouldn't get OHKd by a vannie or FPC anyway, so having higher DEEPS, as well as being way less penalising for missed shots, makes the prowler vastly superior at that.
>>
>>121142951
The only time it was best against ESFs is when they accidently made the velocity increase from lock down 600% instead of 60%. That was the best 2 hours of PS2 for the TR.

They sure fixed that shit fast though.....then shortly after left ZOE in the game for 6 months in its wildly OP state.

And people wonder why TR have a victim complex.

Is it normal for vehicle and air aiming to feel very sluggish? It seems like there is a quarter to a half second of lag between when I move my mouse and when a turret or aircraft actually responds. Same thing happens happens in AV and AA turrets, but not the MANA deployables. Are they supposed to be as responsive as aiming with infantry? I consistently have high framerate so I know that isn't the issue. Do I just need to git gud?

as an nc, it just kinda pisses me off that i dont have a gun like the sva/orion/battlegoose. its not so much for their OPness, but for their versatility. NC weapons are so goddamn specialized that you have to constantly rekit if you want to go against these vanu shitters that can just use one gun

what am i supposed to do as a heavy? sure the godsaw and gausssaw are good at range, but they're fucking garbage cqc. okay, so ill go pull my cyclone. A completely different gun that fires completely different. But now I've lost all my ranged advantage.

I just want versatility with NC. They can be fun because the guns are really good at what they're designed to do. But unfortunately, the game doesn't usually play out that way.

It has effective 0.36 horizontal tolerance with foregrip equipped. This is long range assault rifle tier.
Orion for example has 0.54 effective tolerance.

>>121155781

Thats without headshots. Just pure damage output.

200 and 167 damage weapons drop more DPS on range than 143 weapons.

The zergfits are dead. All the good players that used to be part of them have split in to small elite outfits. That leaves noobs and shitters to either run squadless, or be lead by someone so green they don't even have a mic, let alone command chat certification. Once one of these new players actually gets good, they naturally want to find a small elite outfit so they can learn advanced skills like destroying your own vehicle to deny kills.

The metagame of player management is dead, and caring about stats killed it.

Ok, so I'm getting pretty close to 1k certs, about 120 to go.

What should I invest it in? I've been playing mostly infil and medic and have both almost maxed. Been trying out engie and raping ass in a Magrider, but I'm not sure that's my thing.

Flying is out of the question because I don't want to grind 3k+ more certs just so I can stay in the air for longer that 5 minutes.

I've been trying out the Vandal and like it alot. Should I get it? I love going out as infiltrator and just running around knifing and sniping NC scum.

I would be on board with this if it were some WW2 shooter where wear and tear will kill bright colors on tanks. But this is PS2.

This can't be blamed on the players. People naturally gravitate towards the play style that favours them the best. It's Daybreak's fault for not providing more incentives to lead large platoons. Even in the old days, platoon leading was largely a burden that people didn't want.

Leading a zerg is not only extra effort with no reward, but it actually punishes you because surrounding yourself with sub-optimal players means you're going to die a lot more and hurt your stats.

It can't just be blamed on the statwhore mentality. It's poor game design.

>1. You can't see round corners
you can though, just press q to spot it through the corner

Prox mines/betty's don't render a lot of the time either, and their beams NEVER render because they don't exist.

BULL FUCKING SHIT. When I play Vanu I do substantially better, SUBSTANTIALLY! It does no comparison.

Do you run faster with the pistol?

>>121173815
use the optic that works best for you, 1x is the one with less percieved recoil fuckery, the other ones get more of that the more x you get, but it don't matter get what works for you
>>
>>121173815
Consistency is key, it also depends on your FOV, if you play at full retard 74 then 2X is probably going to be better. The way the game calculates sensitivity for each zoom level completely ruins muscle memory if you switch often, pick one and use it across the board.

1x.

>>121173440
But the GD-22S has always been better than the Anchor.
You're not seriously saying 4% higher DPS is better than a much faster reload and better accuracy/recoil, right?

People who think Vanu is OP don't know the history of Planetside. In PS1 the Jackhammer, MCG, and Lasher were the only endgame weapons. The MCG and Jackhammer COMPLETELY outclassed the Lasher because the Lasher would fucking spray everywhere. Vanu players had to adopt superior skill and strategy to survive.

Even to this day, the Lasher will always lose to the MCG and Jackhammer, but because PS2 has more weapon variety, the Lasher is no longer holding the VS back.

Vanu once had to work twice as hard as the TR and NC to achieve the same results. Now that there's a more even playing field, VS are naturally going to dominate.

>Someone actually gives a fuck about accuracy?

Accuracy alone is a meaningless stat, because it can be statpadded easily by shooting at maxes and harrasers.

If you want to judge if player is good you need to look at LPK (shots landed per kill) and SPK (shots fired per kill).

For example : If someone has 35% acc/hsr with 10 lpk/45spk on a 143 weapon it's a statpadding shitter, but if he has 7.5 spk/23 lpk with same acc/hsr you can assume said player has a really good aim.

Nah the best LMG is now MSW-R.

>Vertical recoil

Orion - 0.40, MSW-R 0.35

>Effective horizontal tolerance with foregrip

Orion - 0.54 degree, MSW- 0.36 degree (two horizontal kicks!)

>Maximum damage range

Orion - 10m, MSW-R 15m

>Velocity

Orion - 540 m/s, MSW-R 580 m/s

>Cone of fire

MSW-R - 0.35 with 0.05 bloom, Orion 0.40 with 0.04 Bloom (for the first 5 shots MSW-R is more accurate cof wise)

>this selective memory

Yes, what you said was true at release, but then Lasher 2.0 happened and a single VS with a lasher could clear a hallway.

Meanwhile VS had the only AA weapon that could reach the flight ceiling on all continents; the Starfire. Let's not forget maxes that could fly, and the only MBT where the driver could gun as well and you could magmow an entire courtyard clear of infantry in a single pass. Remember when they had to rework the magrider to actually take damage from running over infantry to counter balance that?

Let's see, what else? Oh TR had burster maxes as their AA. The flak could not reach the flight ceiling on any continent except for one. On any other continent, enemy libs could literally sit still over a TR base and freely cluster bomb the fuck out of them. While their MBT required 3 people to be as effective as the other MBT's were with only two people which meant that they had less bodies available to do other things on the battlefield?

Yeah the VS sure had it rough back then, that's why they're better players today.

They are good at infantry, they aren't laggers and they don't spam MAXes like most outfits on Miller. They are ok in my book. DESSPA might be suffering from mild autism though. I've heard he wrote a 500 pages (!!) tactical guide for every base for KOTV during the early days of PS2.

This nigga "ordered" me to not destroy his spawn beacon

When I informed him that I was wearing blue, not red, he said NC are still TR or something and kept rping as a fucking grand petty admiral third class honor guard or something

This was after I outsniped him in the process of destroying his beacon with the Bandit

Don't forget the ones where a br100 infil takes his br100 engineer friend, and destroy all the sundies whilst cloaked.

LOVE those guys. Battles get so much more epic when that stuff happens, especially when it happens within the first 5 minutes of a fight.

Still looking for a regular Prowler gunner on Emerald, someone EST who plays often. Voice chat required, in-game or external. New players welcome, would prefer you upgrade repair gun asap.

Tank's certed out except for weapons: Last ammo upgrade of AP cannon and Memekeeper. Vulcan and Halberd need upgrading too.

I'm really confused by something. I unloaded on someone with my SAW and there's at least a half second delay between when I shoot them and they shoot back, but they ALWAYS manage to kill me in what seems like 1 to 2 shots. Am I wrong or is something fucked up in this game?

Client side hit detection

An ancient technology used only be inferior devs

>>121220483
More like a technology that has to be used in a game like this

Serverside hit detection would have the servers on fire and increasing players ping making hitreg even worse

Guys I recently grinded to 1000 certs on my TR but I have no idea what gun to get for muh lmg directives. Should I get the t9 carv-s or the t16 rhino? I'm mainly looking at medium range and I heard both of these got changed in the recent update.
>>
>>121220483
>actually preferring serverside hitreg

though if it were a thing, 0.75 ADS would've been gone before launch
>>
>>121220813
Rhino still sucks balls

Do:

CARV, MSW, CARV-S, NS-15M, T32 Bull

I just read that last part in an asian voice screaming "NINE ERREVIN! NINE ERREVIN! NINE ERREVIN! NINE ERREVIN! NINE ERREVIN! NINE ERREVIN! NINE ERREVIN!"
>>
>>121220813
of those two, get the Rhino. It was always the better gun, and even got better buffs in the last major update.

Haven't played PS2 in a LONG time. How bad has it gotten? I really stopped playing after they nerfed the Deci. Yeah it was a bit strong at the time but they completly destroyed it and it sounds like from what my dad told me they made it p2w by nerfing guns and adding new op ones every other month or so. He hasn't played for about 4 months though. Now reading this thread they got rid of the faction colors and emblems? Sounds fuckin stupid.

>not being able to trade having weapons in a sunderer at all and reduced troop carry slots for a secondary utilitarian use?

>no actual combat engineering, building and repairing bridges, performing maintenance on stations and turrets other than plain repairs?

>bases needing fuel?

>bases having limited stocks of nanites?

>using the roads already mapped in the game as supply lines, enemy presence on those roads would cut the supply chain and starve out defenders of resources / ammo / fuel / etc, forcing the defending force to either call for backup or relocate to launch an offensive on the blockade, causing the attacking force to gain a force advantage on the siege to gain momentum?

>no overheating shield generators that need to be maintained by engineers in order for the shields not to drop entirely as they sustain constant fire from vehicles?

Why does this game have almost none of the FUN aspects that are very particular and subjective to my own personal preference bros? ;_;

Online FPS players don't care about anything but killwhoring

Also, SOE didn't want to make an actual Planetside sequel
>>
>>121221597
You might be entirely right. I never played the original planetside either, which brings an abstract kind of sad with it.

Those are just some random things I tend to mentally masturbate to rather often.

Then again, with my tingling milsim autism, I guess I should be playing TR instead of trying out NC and realizing how full of literal glue eaters NC is.

>a group of dumbasses decide to repeatedly pull tanks from a base and keep dying
>you want to pull a tank? Too bad they already used up all the resources :^)
>>
>>121221874
Not necessarily to that extent anon, but you make a good point, balancing that idea would be complicated once we factor in the retards, you're right.

But maybe, just MAYBE (and yeah I'm being entirely too hopeful here, I know) it would slowly create a culture of actually thinking things through in the playerbase, instead of base fights turning into rampant grinding shitfests where everyone just keep throwing themselves at the enemy with tanks for lulz and kill rates.
>>
>>121221874
They'd burn through their own resources before bleeding the base dry if it worked like PS1's NTUs

Too bad PS2 Gals still can't transport medium and light vehicles

>>121221774
PS2's a disappointing PS game and a skeletal MMOFPS
>>
>>121222257
iirc they specific got rid of the whole "pulling shit drains the base" in PS1 because it just ended up meaning the base would drain way too fast when under attack
