We Need You! (Planetside 2 on PS4)

SUBJECT
Hello my fellow AJSA troopers. Recently IGN leaked a possible release date for Planetside 2. For those who don’t know Planetside 2 is a free to play massively multiplayer online shooter based around massive maps, epic battles, and strong teamplay. The date leaked was June 30th and was accompanied by a developers tweet stating a planned release date in June of 2014. For those of you who don’t know, this game is already officially supported on PC. Because of this, if a sufficient playerbase is shown it will automatically be supported on PS4 as well.




RECRUITMENT APPLICATION
I, as the outfit leader, have plans to make the Angry Army outfit the best on all of Auraxis. But I am in need of loyal soldiers to fight alongside me. In the outfit soldiers will have semi-dedicated roles that they will fill most of the time ( i.e. mostly filling a combat medic role within an infantry platoon) however these are subject to change mid-gameplay. We will also have dedicated platoon and squad leadership to ensure good strategists are always at the helm of an offense or defense. If you plan to play the game OFTEN (being on almost every weekend) please put down your PSN and your preferred role down below. The first platoon made will be composed primarily of Combat Medic, Heavy Assault, and Engineer. Please choose one of the roles below.



- Combat Medic (standard infantry with healing tools to keep teammates in the fight and assault rifles to take enemies out of it. The medic is also one of the best starter classes due to their versatility and high XP income from healing and reviving teammates. These infantry are the bread and butter of any platoon due to their potential to both take and give life.)

- Heavy Assault (heavy bruisers with a bullet resistant overshield, Light Machine Gun, and anti vehicular rocket launcher. These troops are very versatile against infantry and vehicles however they arent as team-oriented as the other 2 classes.)

- Engineer (vehicle specialists who repair vehicles and equipment, use carbines as their primary, and have an ammo pack to ensure teammates never run low. Engineers are excellent at setting up defenses, repairing vehicles and keeping allies topped off.)



ORGANIZATION
Organization is KEY to a successful outfit in Planetside. There are 3 basic levels of organization. There are 12 man squads, 48 man platoons, and multi-platoon groups called Outfits. I will be adding another level of organization unofficially called battalions. Battalions will be groups of outfits that synergize with each-other. The 1st battalion that will be created is the 4th Vanguard Combat Battalion. The vanguard is the main force of the AJSA outfit will consist of the first 1 or 2 infantry platoons, 1 air platoon and 1 armor platoon. The 4th Vanguard will be focused on versatility. From there we will create auxiliary battalions that are less versatile and more specialized.

SIDE NOTE: Feel free to leave any questions comments or concerns within your applications down below. Also, sorry if the officialness of this thread scares you, its just how I am. The outfit may seem like its pretty strict from the text but the goal of Planetside, like any other game, is TO HAVE FUN!
SIDE NOTE 2: The first stages of this post are strictly to get an estimate on how many players will play this game in order to confirm an Official Outfit on the PS4 version of Planetside 2.

To answer your question the engineer class uses carbines as their default weapon. Also, there are 3 other playable classes in Planetside these being the Light Assault, Infiltrator, and MAX armored suit. The reason I did not include these is because the three classes listed above are the basic classes needed for a versatile, infantry based platoon. As we grow all classes will be used. This post outlines the very basics of the outfit only.

I'm more of an Infiltrator if I do say so myself so that is what I prefer xD

However if I have to be one of those three I would say Medic then? haha

Either way the name NARDCORE_805 (eight-zero-five just in case haha)

On PC I play a mix of these three, are they changing the ability to change class on the PS4 version?

Hydra they arent changing the mechanic. These are merely roles that members of the outfit will fill during our large scale operations. The players will choose a class to "specialize" in so we know who will be playing what role most of the time. The class each individual plays may (and probably will) change depending on the combat situation. The role you choose here will be what you play most of the time during large scale operations.
