    My high TK is probably down to my liberal use of C4 (if it'll kill a MAX< you're going down too), my refusal to lift my finger off the trigger if a friendly walks in front of me and the odd gal crash.

    I think playing a lot more infiltrator (stalker commie for lulz) instead of my Lasher-Lancer heavy is paying dividends, only 2.23% here (though i still play that heavy quite a lot, i like Lancer for everything from killing maxes to aircraft).

    Just trained for ~90 minutes with [252V] Kaomet, the pilot. We were duelling a lot on Hossin, and he noticed that I kept losing (I could get him to ~30% HP, but we went 5-1 in kills). So, he swapped to his VS alt and duelled me for a while, giving me tips and teaching me to reverse better and general stuff.

    Nice guy.

    Well that sounds like a terrible idea. Allowing people to pay money to instantly refill their resources.

    Reddit comment that says it best:
    " 'Lets design a system that limits the spamabilty of power items, then sell people a way to completely bypass that limitation.'
    For fucks sake SOE.. "




    I have no idea what SOE is trying to do.

    That's exactly it. You're forgetting that PS2 is free, and lots of players won't sign up for premium, so SOE will be trying to make money however they can - especially when they're ploughing investment in to the game (PS4 release isn't going to be cheap...). Whilst the mechanism in this case may be a bit flawed, the reasoning behind it is fairly obvious.

    That may be it but it will just scare players away. If the Reddit is any indication and if people arent lying through their noses then it will cost them subscribers.

    I would say if you base what the community thinks by what Reddit says, you're going to have a bad time. SOE probably have much better numbers than we have access to.

    It just wont happen. There's no way SOE can try to argue give paying players the ability to constantly pull force multipliers isn't a pay-to-win mechanism. Usually SOE are good at responding to the community, the implants system for example was much worse in its initial planned state. If we do get any sort of mechanism like this then it'll be in a much more diluted form. I imagine with the resource overhaul SOE will just sit back and watch the increased sales of resource boosts come streaming in without anywhere near as much community uproar.

    To be honest, it just sounds to me like SOE pulling the same old routine again:


    • Start at 0 - Game as it is. You want to add a change or mechanic that you know is opposed and will cause a reaction.
    • Suggest "10" - an over the top implementation that you know is unrealistic.
    • Await inevitable community reaction of a Venkman style "Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling! Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes... The dead rising from the grave! Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!"
    • Say you've "listened to the community" and then suggest "5" - a smaller scoped implementation, that was pretty much what you had in mind initially.
    • Community opposition is now minimal/muted, because "5" really isn't anywhere near as bad as "10", community gets to claim "we made them rethink" etc etc.

    It works well. I'm just not able to see a midpoint this time. Maybe adding in nanites drops or something.

    Indeed. For the love of Vanu please no pay2farm mechanism.

    All those changes in the recent past make me believe that PS2 isn't paying the bills.
    For me it's starting to look like Battlefield Heroes. At first the game was fine, no (at least outright obvious) pay2win stuff. But then it turned out to not be profitable and they introduced some pay2win elements. The community went nuts but in the end almost nobody quit. After they saw that this change was making a huge pile of cash they decided to go completely nuts on it. They actually toned this down a bit a few months ago but I guess that mainly happened due to the developers primarily working on a new game and there aren't all too many new players coming in anyway.

    What's the difference between resource boosts and resource refills? Both are convenience items, where you can spend money to bypass waiting.
    We should probably wait for exact numbers before calling it P2W.
