I love the Planetside franchise. But mostly, as a concept. Unfortunately I've never joined an army or anything, and that's mainly because I can't really be considered an "active" player. But then I don't play PS2 at all right now pretty much because I'm not in an army and this is not a solo friendly game.
On top of that there are tons of weapons and things and I have no idea what to spend points in, but I do know that it takes something like years to unlock everything so I can't really experiment much. I need some idea of a few good things for a noob to unlock and play with.
Also are there any casual friendly armies or anything? I might play more often if I could get some more enjoyment out of it. Or maybe there's some ways to make solo work? (Not holding my breath.) I guess really it just comes down to zerg rushing wherever the action is at and hope I get a kill or two here and there. I'm not all that likely to play this but once in a blue moon, honestly. The performance is kinda crap too. 90% of the time when I really wanna multiplayer these days it's gonna be Titanfall.
Not a solo friendly game? Bro, have you seen the new redeploy mechanics? THIS doo doo IS CASUAL AS Foxtrot. VEHICLES DON'T EVEN MATTER ANYMORE. It's literally like choosing which server to play on, just redeploy to any one you want and fight bruh. For the weapon balance, you really don't need anything else, like Den said, it's sidegrade city up in here, still. The default weapons are very well balanced. If you're playing medic, get max heal gun ASAP, and don't use it for healing, only revives. If you're playing Heavy Assault, get about rank 2 or 3 Resist Shield and max Advanced Shield Capacitor for your day-to-day infantry fighting, it's really the setup with the least downtime and the most benefit, NMG isn't that worth it right now. If you're playing vehicles, are you a masochist? If you're Engineer, get ammo pack ups and throw them everywhere there's a lot of people. If you're a Light Assault, what the hell are you doing? If you're an Infiltrator, get the higher ranks of motion sensor darts, they're legit, and the first 100 cert bolt unlock for VS/TR is all you really need, the NC already have their equivalent with the Bolt Driver.
Get Exmags for all your shotties. Foregrip on all your automatics, I personally hate Nanoweave and think it not worth. New Implant meta is go around with conc resistance and conc self and enemies while using shotgun indoors. Once everyone equips conc resistance use Battle Hardened.
Do your best, though, it was difficult adjusting to the new pace for me also. You go from CoD with its 5 or so kills per minute to this slow slugfest with about .3-.5 kills per minute.
You want a good laugh about the state of the game, check this out, it's hilarious. Buzz talks to some of the big shots like Matt Higby and Skorj and tears up the mic
Holy shit I just watched the whole thing and gosh darn golly gee whiz I mean Buzz goes OFF on Higby. I mean holy crap if you want to look at the state of the game, watch that whole thing.

Marvel4: "The random direction scale view kick"

probaddie: Yeah. And the direction your point of aim is kicked in is exactly the compass direction from which you were shot. Total deflection in degrees is damage * bg_viewKickScale. The time to recover (no matter the amount of kick) is 0.5 seconds.
