    Tbh most of the vanu weapons shoot projectiles that look like the other factions and things like snipers have a trail on all factions. The only real difference I've seen in terms of weapons between the factions is the large vehicles ones.

    There should be substantial weapon differences too. For instance, the NC have their super-shotgun (can't remember the name) which is unlike anything the other factions have. The anti-vehicle missiles were pretty distinct in Planetside, though I haven't heard the details for Planetside 2.

    Vanu will have the most agile fighter craft, so that's something. Wonder if it will support joysticks?

    I'm pretty sure that I recall Matt Higby saying there would be during one of the Total Biscuit livecasts

    I was only talking about the obviousness of weapon trails and things. There are other differentiating factors as well :]

    I gotcha.

    Well, from the sound of it the start of closed beta will be announced next week, though to prevent the servers from exploding they are going to add people fairly slowly. Whoever gets in first should make a new thread with usernames so we know who is where.

    I made a quick steam group (I say quick, that logo took me like, 20 minutes) to make sharing details when the time comes easier. http://steamcommunity.com/groups/RPSide

    Would you rather us NC chaps joined that one, or would you like me to make another group for people who don't want to play Vanu?

    Anyone that intends to go ahead and play with the main faction to any extent can go ahead and join that one, but by all means set up your own.

    I'm happy to roll Vanu with you fine folk, the other gaming community I play with seems to be leaning towards New Conglomerate. Anything but Terran, really.

    As for outfit names, I prefer Rock Planetside Shotgun to Rock Planet Side.

    Rock Planet Shotgun is slimmer. :) Also can be read in at least three different ways, which is always fun.

    Actually, its PHAT

    That's the name I want until further notice.

    Mh, I dunno. I don't really like the "Planet" being in there. It's related to PS and to "Rock" (as it gets bigger with R->P), but then the "Shotgun" part is kinda unrealted and it no longer looks like the "Rock Paper scissorz" pun RPS is. Something like (just something I made up randomly) Rock -> Planet -> Supernova would be in the pun line again, if you get my idea.

    For the VS outfit, I think Rock, Paper, Scythe would be a better name.

    But Rock, Planet, Shotgun is pretty cool too.

    Agreed. For VS that seems to be fitting.

    Will be disappointed if Rock, Paper, Jackhammer wasn't used for NC.

    We've thought up a name already, but that's a darn good one. The existing name would be "Rock, Traitor, Shotgun".

    Has an outfit been created? If not, any objections to a "Rock, Paper, Scythe" VS outfit? I'll create it tomorrow.

    Coccyx has already created a general RPS PS2 group: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/RPSide
    I'm sure you'd be welcome to create a VS specific one, I've not got around to creating the NC/TR group quite yet.

    Ok, yeah, in that group.

    Let me phrase it otherwise.

    Hypothetical question: Were someone in the tech test - someone who may or may not be me - and were to set up an RPS Vanu outfit ready for the closed beta, are there any objections to "Rock, Paper, Scythe"
    ?

    Hypotheticaly speaking I don't think that anybody would steal it from us but I also doubt it would hurt anyone to grab it now if possible.
