    Oh, another logistics question: is this going to be a euro-only group? With the Battlefield 3 groups they split it into seperate US/UK groups for time zones, but it didn't work out that well. Thinking if we have a significant player base in different time zones we can make different squads or just "operations when you can make it" or whatever.

    Rock Planet Side was the title of another thread which I quite liked; for VS, though, Rock Purple Suits sounds great to me.

    I LOVE the poll colours, they completely threw me. I thought NC was winning and VS was trailing a bit, hah!

    Name wise, rock paper scythe works for vanu and rock paper sunderer for anyone taking from the vehicles alone.

    Yes, vote NC because their less interesting machine gun deals higher DPS, did you know about vanu plasma weapons? Or the chainfire rocket launchers which aside from the odd quirk of not being able to stop firing once it gets going has exceptional utility against all targets? That's what Vanu gets, odd crap.

    Eh? Not sure what you're getting at here Helio. I mean its not like any of us have actually played the game.

    I'm talking Planetside 1, odd guns abound.

    Ah fair enough. I dont think we've seen much of the Vanu weapons so far, so it'll be interesting to see how closely the devs stick to the original game (which I've not played). I think thats part of the reason I'm hesitant to play Vanu - TR are clearly about maneuverability and rapid fire weapons, NC are about thick armour and big slow weapons, and VS are... well, 'quirky'. Which could end up meaning anything.

    Oh, and I really dislike the look of their MAX suits compared to NC.

    From what we have seen of the vanu in the e3 demos especially they have by far the most maneuverable vehicles and the weapons instead of being quirky are simply a bit more effecient in certain aspects. They have the only sniper rifles without bullet drop atm.

    With the current batch of shared vehicles and the weapons being pretty similar between factions, I don't understand the vanu hate for the sake of "I like boxes and slow RoT high damage weapons" coming from the vocal NC guys.

    Blue is a nicer colour than Purple.

    Bullet drop is easy to compensate for, being spotted because your sniper rifle uses a laser-beam to kill is more of a problem.

    You know what we could try?

    There will be several servers. We could make an NC and a Vanu.
    I was a vanu flier in the original PS, but I may actually roll up a TR this time around on a side server.

    Maybe we'll want to have one outfit on a US-based server and another on a UK-based server?

    The only issue with that is time zones. As in, it would be pretty awesome if we could plan attacks and operations on a 24 hour basis, with the yanks and such popping on to carry on the good fight when its time for us euros to go to bed. And of course, people will be frustrated if their chosen faction happens to be on a high ping (for them) server.
