    Nice. I do wish that all boosts ran for playing time, rather than calendar time, however. It becomes a very stressful pressure for me, knowing that there's a boost that I've paid omeny for going to waste if I should decide to do something other than play Planetside for an evening or a weekend...

    And, yes; you can decide when to activate the boosts, and I believe you can buy several and keep for future use.

    Yeah, I just bought two, so you can buy more than one and select when to use them.

    Thanks for the heads up! Been wondering whether or not to grab one of these, this has swayed me.

    Actually, do these boost cert gain as well as xp?

    Certs are gained each time you clock up a specific amount of XP, so, yes.

    As cert gain is strictly bound to xp (except medals) the answer is: kinda yes.

    I usually buy a day long one for Thursday nights, but given the price here I'll stock up on some of these.

    Absolutely this, it's hard enough to quit playing some times as it is!

    It's a shame these are locked to the character. Forces you to play just one of them for a week.

    Noob questions guys: Can I buy these and activate them when I have a week free to play the game or am I obliged to use them right away?

    Plus, by today only, when does it actually end? I might not be at my desktop until past midnight (GMT) so it's no good for me if that's the case

    Good spot, Quanta. Perhaps we should have a "ping" thread for sale alerts. It would be helpful for me to be able to check this on my phone and not have to log in to the game.

    [Edit]
    In fact, is there a URL where the current sale items are shown?

    Yes. They don't seem to expire until after you activate.

    Yes, thats where I heard it from. Still, it might go under in a stream of twitter stuffs.

    For example, today its the Hair to Mound lawnchairs.
