    [data] cert gain within the outfit

    I would be interested your cert/hour gain to have a look what to expect. You may be able grab your data over at PSU:
    http://www.planetside-universe.com/characters.php
    (not all characters in database yet)

    There you have your time played and your certs. The data that is available seems to be fairly accurate.

    mine:
    http://www.planetside-universe.com/p...bbyisgoinghome

    29,4 certs/hour


    *edit*
    Out of curiosity I checked some of the leaderboard top players. Those rank up to ~ 100-110 certs/hour. But I suppose that's also due to xp boosts and membership bonus (as well es being good)

    That's broken for me unfortunately, only lists my character before I deleted it and started again (same name).

    as for certs/hour, I generall get about 40-60 certs/hour but this is improving as I learn more about the game. The best cert/hour I got was 46 certs in 22 minutes...shame I couldnt keep that up!

    Looks like I'm getting around 30 per hour, not as bad as I expected.

    24 Certs an hour.

    Which is what I expected: For example, last night I got a grand total of 12 certs over the whole 3 hour night. PL takes up a fair amount of time otherwise spent killing things. Not to mention the times I log on just to go run about in a scythe for 20 minutes, or do a quick public gal drop from the WG or two. I spend a lot of time playing in a way that's not cert-gain efficient...

    On a good run when I'm not messing about doing anything but capturing bases and killing things that are not purple, I can hit up to 80 certs an hour, usually about 50. But that'll be a burst for an hour or two over a longer evening. So 24 seems about right.

    Edit: and that's with a 60% Membership + Alpha boost. Buggering hell I am utterly shit at this game...

    70 certs/hour, playing as an engineer almost full time gives you a lot of chances for repair and resupply... Oh, but I also use the 50% cert gain boost (7 days).

    DATABASE ERROR

    I guess I broke things?

    Edit: Ok, it's up now, but it's old - showing me as BR4, am now BR10 I think. About 30 certs/hour for the hour and a half it has logged.

    I'm getting around 46 certs an hour (this is including a 60% boost from membership and Alpha Squad).

    The data seems out of date by several weeks though, I suspect that I'm much lower than that actually.

    I've only played 5 hours according to this, which is probably just the two days after launch.

    I don't exist

    Is there a cert boost? Never saw one in the store, just XP and resources.

    I don't exist either. You get certs based on XP, so any XP boost is also a cert boost.

    About 18 certs an hour, with 10% boost

    While the conclusion here may be that I suck, I think it mostly has to do with the fact that I spend a LOT of time in Scythes, and the cert gain from dogfighting just isn't very good; I'm definitely a better than average pilot but killing an enemy fighter takes way, way longer than killing an infantry, and you only get double the EXP for it, and then have to land, repair and reload. Seems like a balance issue.

    About 18.8 here, it updated today, maybe it was because I logged in and played some again.

    823 certs over 29 hours makes for 28 certs per hour. I have or have had no boosts equipped ever, your Honor.

    I play as an engineer mostly. I drive my bus somewhere, deploy it, and then keep it and everything around me in repair and with ammo.

    Around 28 certs an hour although it says I last logged in on the 26/11
    There was an excellent external Battlefield 2 database which gave you all kinds of stats. It'd be great if that's what this could turn in to.

    At least for me, that information is pretty inaccurate.

    On the main Planetside 2 website, there's a link on the top banner to a "Players" page, currently marked "coming soon," which looks like it'll be a player database. It would certainly be nice if that was a good, robust thing.

    It will be; they covered this extensively pre-release as they though they'd have it for launch. Basically there will be a website with all the stuff you can do in-game sort of shooting (viewing the map, outfit management, etc.) as well as tons of player stats. There will also be an iOS app to go with it for THOSE people.

    A lot of interesting data in in that link. I'm at 21.38 per hour with no boosts. I can't kill anyone but I can repair the shit out of you.

    I too seem to get around 28 certs/h. Not playing in a very cph-efficient way, but I'm having fun and feeling some progress, so it's not too bad. It's dangerous to start putting quantifiable numbers up as a meaure of the quality of your gameplay, when having fun should be the ultimate goal. Fun is hard to measure.
