Downloaded last night, took ages due to shitty net connection. Seems pretty good for a freebie. Haven't killed anyone yet but got killed by some aircraft, falling off a building, hit by a team-mate and had a short tank type battle (I was gunner).

Spawn sucks though. I guess this is solvable with a Squad?

Last night was probably the most fun I've had so far in PS2.

Started off the evening running solo as an Infiltrator cloak defending a bio-lab, moved on to ghost-cap and use prox mines with great success, and finished the night with Dakar reking fools in a Magrider.

I have some Infil gameplay I'll be uploading soon you might enjoy.

Oh, now I see why I scored so much more than you that night:

I figured, not just because a silenced revolver make no sense.

fatty, this is what I'm considering for my next pistol, when I have spare credits: Cerberus - PlanetSide 2 Wiki
More damage than the Beamer, more rounds than the revolvers, and can fit a silencer. I have no idea if its actually good, though.

---

Gave the new vehicle focused Magrider primary a proper run last night. Yeah, I think I'll be running this much more often.

There you go, fatty. You got all the kills on the vehicles I was decimating last night.


I'm also curious how you killed a guy with C-4 twice while we were tanking. Maybe you set-off C4 he was trying to pant, taking him with the vehicles?

Remember that hill we kept trying to get onto by The Crown, fatty? Well, we owned the base behind it last night, so I was raining artillery hell on the Terrans for 50 minutes:


I think I calculate that two FPCs and two full Saron mags will wipe out a sunderer in 5 seconds.

Double XP is already live. Though, at least on PC, servers be crashing after they enabled it. They took them down to do a hotfix, but apparently they need to hotfix that hotfix, so... yeah.

Saturday Night's comeback win, visualized.

TR cut us off from 39% to 10. Then, at the end, we jumped from 27% to 41%.

Victory Points

Continents will no longer be captured by alerts and territory control alone. Victory points are a new method of scoring in the game, the more points your faction earns the closer to continental victory you will be; if your faction earns a predetermined number of points then continent is yours.
There are a numbers of ways to earn VP:

Permanent Victory Points
Link your warpgate to enemy warpgate #1 = +1 VP
Link your warpgate to enemy warpgate #2 = +1 VP
Link your warpgate to enemy warpgate #1 + #2 simultaneously = Continental Victory/Lock
Capture all Techplants = +1 VP
Capture all Amp Stations= +1 VP
Capture all Biolabs = +1 VP
Capture all major facilities (Amp, Bio, Tech) simultaneously = Continental Victory/Lock
Win Alerts = +1 VP
Flux Victory Points

Capturing more than 50% of a continents territory can earn you flux Victory Points. Flux Victory Points count towards continental victory but can be won/lost with the territory you control/lose.
Percentage of Territory controlled
55% = +1 VP
60% = +1 VP
65% = +1 VP
70% = +1 VP
75% = +1 VP
80% = +1 VP
85% = +1 VP
90% = +8 VP (Continental Victory)
