    [VS] The Race Is On



    Two [RPS] players are now on the homestretch in the struggle to reach BR 100:

    justforkicks101

    and

    iNGLE5

    Who will be the fourth [RPS] member to receive the blessing of Vanu and achieve absolute enlightenment? The race is on!

    I'm impressed by the amount of medic and repair you guys must have done to get that far with that number of kills! Good job!

    Fun fact - with the exception of Loki and Cephas our entire council and a chunk of the Girofficers joined within a few days of each other in the first week of release. In fact LaKory, Laldy, Nick and SerHoc joined within minutes of each other!

    I apparently joined at 2AM.... wtf Grible, go to bed!

    Also my money is on Kicks, he has a good lead - but Ingles is higher SPM, the race is indeed on!

    I'm backing myself, a definite outsider at BR60, but hotly tipped (by me).

    Heh, that is indeed a fun fact! I would also bet that most of this group of people have had only shorter timeouts from the game, like a few weeks or a month, at most. I guess that kind of information is harder to find, though.

    Oh, looking forward to seeing how this BR100 race will play out! I believe I just recently passed the 50%-to-BR100 mark. Isn't that at BR82?

    Don't worry, your not the only one. I think my estimated BR 100 time, as of last december, was somewhere in 2016-2017.

    Ah, that's quite annoying as I was definitely playing with RPS in the beta.

    I think the longest break I've had is 4 weeks whilst I was on our honeymoon, without a doubt the longest I've consistently played a single game.

    I started playing two days before end of beta, I think. Joined RPS more or less on launch day and, like you, my longest absence has been something similar, 3-4 weeks, I think. It's definitely the longest lasting consistent gaming experience of my life. In fact, my colleagues, when asking me what I've been playing over the weekend or whatever, make crazy eyes at me when my reply is "Planetside 2". "Are you still​ playing that game?!" Like it was a bad thing.

    At BR57 I am about 21% of the way to BR100. That's crazy.

    Based on my SPM I need to put another 1000 hours in, or 41 solid days. Assuming I do 3 hours a night that'll take 333 days.

    Me and LaKroy joined together, so that explains that. I've no idea about Laldy or Nick though... And I think I might have the longest hiatus of the council (didn't play for about three months last spring due to studying 150% and then going abroad), so I might be winning that contest at least. :P

    Anyway, best of luck to both of you!! Remember, one vehicle kill is worth several infantry ones in term of xp.

    I think I've taken a couple of 4-6 week breaks in the year I've been playing. I still think WoW holds the most-played crown for me, if only because it has been around much longer, and I used to have more spare time. I've certainly never got stuck into a community like I have with RPS on PS2.
