Anyone still playing Planetside? If so how are the overall player numbers? I assume Sony dealt with the hacking that was going on around a year ago, or is that still present?

Was considering coming back, seems Planetside has some development actually going on now.

Dev post taken from official forums

Here is what we are working on for the next 90 days. These are listed in the time frame that we expect to roll them out as updates to the game.


In March,
We will be rolling out the new Engineering Advancement. Assault and Fortification Engineering. These are new branches of Engineering on top of the current Combat Engineering abilities. You can get certified in one or both and you will need to have Combat Engineering as a prerequisite. There are specific details located on the forums describing this update LOCATED HERE.

Soon after our Engineering update in early March, we will be launching our newly rebuilt and recharged Sunderer. The Sunderer in it's current form will be no longer -- so get your screen shots of them now and hold them as collectors items. The new Sunderer will have an increase in armor and will display a new anti-infantry guard in the front. Four new guns have been added: 2 empire specific guns mounted on the top side and 2 additional guns (one on each side). The top guns are nice additions for air support and the two side guns will aid the Sunderer against targets that sneak under the blind spots that the top guns currently have. Finally, the driver will have new functionality at his hands to deliver a jammer effect to the area closest to the vehicle. This nice addition will round off what we believe to be a serious base crashing machine.

March to April, we will be working on the equivalent Advancedment to Hacking, Sniping and Medical just as we have added to the Engineering profession that is being updated within the next week. More details will follow after the launch of the Sunderer but here are some details of this development:

Hackers (Uploading a pain field to SOI's of bases, towers and Shield Generators; Sensor shield emitter - creates dead zones in enemie's radar and motion sensor benefits; ability to jack vehicles while they are occupied; Upload a viruses (Still working on the effects and list of items to upload viruses to))

Medical (Ability to upgrade shield generators with healing effects; Ability to place AOE medical regeneration packs; Ability to place AOE Armor regeneration packs; New abilities to call for medical revivals and additional functionality to communicate between the deceased and medical personell)

Snipers (Sniper only sensor to sniff out enemy infantry that may be closing in on their location; A slightly transparent ability or new suit with a semi-transparent effect; Changes to the Focus cone of fire -- haivng the focus faster at the beginning and slower towards the end of it's focus to speed up your aim on a target)


In April,
We will be working on more vehicles: The Phantasm (cloaking aircraft) as well as the Galaxy Gunship.

The Phantasm is a new vehicle and will mainly be a transport vehicle that can get a small squad to specific locations in an almost stealth-like fashion. Like every item in the game, there has to be some draw backs and using a completely invisible aircraft without detection seems a bit unfair. Therefore, we are working on the balance issues as we speak. The Phantasm has one gun mounted on the bottom mid-to-tail section.

The Galaxy Gunship is another variant air vehicle that will be added to the game and will not replace the current Galaxy. We envision it to be the Sunderer equivalent in the sky. This too is going through balance passes to be shored up within the next 2 weeks.


In May,
We have two new anniversary weapons that will be given to the veterans of PlanetSide and to everyone else. What that means is that we are designing to give a new weapon (Pistol type to be exact) to the 4 year veterans of PlanetSide. Also, we are creating at least one (possibly two) new weapons to give out to everyone during our anniversary date in mid May. This second gun is being designed as a special assault weapon that does not require the special assault certification.

Finally, we're working on a lot of little items that are significant to list but we do not have definite delivery dates at this time. We are currently finding places within this schedule.

If you have any questions, please feel free to post. We'll try to get to them as soon as possible and will ask for some additional feedback on these items as we get closer.

Have a great weekend!

With Station Acess, I have all the SOE games loaded, and I keep em updated. I try to log into all of them once a month, though I may have missed PS last month.

I play about every other night (free account).
The free account will expire on the 24th, not sure if I plan on paying after that (probably will until WAR gets closer).

(I mostly drive VS tanks on Emerald, PM if you would like to gun.)

TripG, ah I remember you... shooting at my cloaker when we were on the same side! Evil or Very Mad

Wink

Anyway, I'm not actually playing Planetside, was just wondering how the game is currently. I finally cancelled EVE few month ago, after following everyone over to that game, but it was just not good. In fact despite all the shouting about it being a great PvP MMO, I would say EVE had even worse combat PvP than SWG. So, I'm considering coming back to planetside, assuming of course there's still a lot of players and not many cheaters.

Will probably wait abit until after the 24th and see what happens to Planetside without the Reserves.

I like those sniper changes, but it isn't worth paying a monthly fee.

There were major changes to Engineering, and I mean major, of course it eats up another 5 certs, but you can't go 10 feet without bumping into a turret these days.

The fights are back to lasting forever at some bases, with big farking three ways and the caves are fairly healthy at times.

I am actually playing once or twice a week again so if you log in, you'll see Mamba as recently active.

I finally resubed the other day, so far I'm really enjoying it.

Although, I'm not sure I like the new changes much. CE used to be just around the bases, now it seems like it's everywhere. The new Cerubus AA spits, seem quite ineffectual against air units, but are darn annoying to me as they shoot at my wraith from a long way away. Also, tons of cloakers running around with the new pistols that can snipe outside of DL range, or alternatively be fired at point blank to unload the whole clip in one pull of the trigger at the cost of all their stamina. The new flamethrower is also way over the top, but I don't see it used that often.

Left us hanging with with that "so..." was expecting something else to follow. Ok I say us, but it's probably just me reading this forum.

Anyway, I haven't been playing for several months, been too busy, and SOE true to form was making the game worse not better with what few additions they did add.

I might resub if I like the look of the game when they add the new Hacking abilitities.
