We're Coming Back

16 posts in this topic

On the 14th of March, 2015, the Second Campaign of the AJSA within Planetside 2 was brought to a close. The reasoning was as follows:

- Connectivity issues. For several weeks prior to the outfit's closure, several of our players encountered significant issues with heavy fps drops, obscenely high ping levels, and even crashing. Needless to say, for those players who had these issues, the game stopped being fun extremely quickly.

- The SOE buyout. At this point, SOE had recently been bought by Columbus Nova and their new brand name was announced to be Daybreak Games Company. People began having concerns that this would result in the game being shifted in a pay-to-win direction, alienating those who would prefer to acquire gear via in-game grinding rather than IRL grinding.

- The toxic atmosphere. The previously mentioned factors, coupled with a general fatigue among the playerbase, combined to make a very toxic atmosphere on the Teamspeak channel during the last few events. This behavior resulted in those who were upset at the game getting more upset and probably pushed away several newcomers who would have otherwise been excited to play this game.


It's been over two months since the final operation of the Second Campaign. Since then, the connectivity issues have been fixed, and the May update added some significant changes. The major components were as follows:

-Spawn Rule Change-If a base is no longer connected to a faction's warpgate via lattice line, that faction can no longer spawn there. This helps cut down on redeployside and forces any zergs to defend against flanking movements or risk losing numerous territories in one go.

-Vehicle Ejection Bug Fix-No more getting shot 500 feet in the air when you get out of your tanks.

-Galaxy Ammo Dispenser and Proximity Repair-New upgrades for the Galaxy, finally making it a fully functional airborne Sunderer. This may cause alterations in tactics by outfits and platoons with more of an aerial focus, which should be interesting to see.

The rest of the changes are listed in a post I previously made about this update here, so click the link to see the changes that were made in detail. I believe the vast majority of changes made in this update will help improve the game overall.


Given the fact that it's clear Daybreak is continuing to work on improving the game, the connectivity issues are largely cleared up, those who were fatigued of the game's problems three months ago have now had a significant period of time off from the game, and summer break is here, I feel the time is right. As such, it is my pleasure to announce the return of the AJSA to Planetside 2!

We will be continuing to hold minor weekend ops to get everyone back into the swing of things for a few weeks before we have a formal relaunch event to get the Third Campaign rolling.

Any plans for the Planetside 2 for the PS4? I hear it's fairly similar to PlanetSide 2 on the PC other than technical details (30fps, lower level of graphical detail etc.).

I got bored and frusterated with all the nerfing going on in this game.  Stupid Vanu had to many overpowered weapons including stupid sythe.  Stupid people that hacked all the time.

 

The only way I best remember was to zerg, was to just horde with tanking (not using tanks), and using engineers to repair along with have a couple squads as granadiers and medics.  Either then that it was a crap shoot at times, and frusterated me that weapons where not balanced enough.  

 

ALSO LAAAAGGGGGG!!!!  

 

Might give it a try again, but right now im just getting back into gaming since iv been without my laptop since last october?/ November?
