PS2 Roster?
I know there's been a thread or two regarding everybody coming back, and Gryphon has a list of folks who are willing to play TR and such.

But what are the odds of us having an actual roster and list with names and classes? Just to get a feel of what we have?

Re: PS2 Roster?
Well, I'm still ironing out the playability of this game on my computer. I fixed the disconnecting problem by changing my router. However, the game locks up my system after a few minutes. I think it's related to my processor overheating, since the GPU isn't being utilized as much as it should be in the current build. I bought some air duster and cleaned out my computer, re-attached my PCI fan (even though the bearings are wearing out and it's loud as hell), and closed the case to increase air flow over the motherboard. I will be trying it out this morning and if things still don't go well, the last thing I can do is buy some new thermal paste for my processor and heat sink.

As soon as that problem is squashed, I'm all game!

I'm on West 02 as Gryphon01 playing TR

Re: PS2 Roster?
Looks like I've finally conquered my computer-locking-up problem and I've started playing the beta now. Ran into Gryphon by coincidence earlier today. I sent a friend request, but I didn't see any confirmation. Is the friend system not working right now?

I'm playing as FrothyMug, by the way.

Ghryphen 08-27-2012 10:20 PM

It is working, I sent a request as well. Sorry i didn't squad up or anything, was in the middle of ops for the live video stream PSU was doing.

With an incredibly loud mic I might add. *cough*

Re: PS2 Roster?
Do we have to stay TR? I give up on playing planetside for now, all I run into on Terran are people TKing the fuck outa me. I pulled one galaxy at the warpgate and died before I could even get it loaded 1/3 of the way due to someone in a liberator shooting us.

Not partial to fearing my own empire more than others.

Ghryphen 08-28-2012 07:02 PM

That's been an issue in all the warp gates, you can't sit around long in the warp gates. I'm sure the will fix it, it is a big complaint in the forums.

Frothymug 08-28-2012 10:39 PM

Re: PS2 Roster?
Is it just me, or is the server's NC population heavily favored?

I'm getting sick and tired of looking up in the sky to see blue and yellow blotting out the local star. I mean, I like fighting in the shade, but... :D

AvengerX 08-29-2012 07:44 AM

Re: PS2 Roster?
I played for a couple of hours yesterday afternoon and the NC were just absolutely swarming. Every base we took it would just get taken right back by the NC.

One thing I very much miss from the first PS is hacking. I miss the rush of hacking a CC or jacking an enemy vehicle.

Danerune 08-29-2012 03:01 PM

Re: PS2 Roster?
I made a tr on west beta 2 named Daner.

The damn trailer got everyone into NC and what is with the music at the char select screens?

I also miss the higher time to kill some one from Ps1 I liked having time to think before I am dead.

Ground vehicles die too fast.

Frothymug 08-29-2012 03:05 PM

Re: PS2 Roster?
Yeah, the gameplay is much different than PS1, but I'm having fun. It's worth trying out to see if it seems more fun for you. At least spawn times are greatly reduced. I was a huge UT2K4 Onslaught fan and I am getting some feelings of similarity to that and Domination mode.

I just started messing around with certs, so I'm looking forward to opening up that can of worms. Soon, I'll start working out some excellent combat strategies and loadouts since I'm behind the curve. I am only now getting to play the game...

Danerune 08-29-2012 05:10 PM

Re: PS2 Roster?
You really cant customize much right now but the healing grenades for medics are pretty cool and there is things like c4 and mines now.

I just think part of what made PS1 a different game was that the infantry combat was slower then other games. Now I feel like I am playing battlefield or cod those are fun games but I don't think planetside can compete with those kind of slick shooters.

*I just read that there are going to be certs that improve survivability so being as it is a beta I can wait to see how that helps.

Ghryphen 08-29-2012 05:55 PM

Re: PS2 Roster?
It is certainly more like CoD and BF3, they are intentionally turning up the TTK. They are wildly more successful games. I will miss PS1 style, but it was a niche play style sadly.

SilverTalon 08-29-2012 07:06 PM

Re: PS2 Roster?
Yeah, I'm not a big fan of the really low TTK, at least for HA. It makes the game about who has the better hardware more than who can apply tactics.

As for the NC, on West there was a big imbalance initially and the systems aren't tweaked to keep that from running out of control. So the NC fell into a "the rich get richer" scenario where they got more auraxium, for better weapons, to take things down forth and so on.

Frothymug 08-30-2012 06:49 AM

Re: PS2 Roster?
I'm a little frustrated at how difficult it is to earn Auraxium. Perhaps I'm doing something wrong?

I've only gotten about 3k so far... Finally managed to level out my K/D ratio and I hope to start increasing it well above 1.00. Most of my combat experience is on foot. Every time I hop into a vehicle, it's like an enormous beacon activates, alerting both NC and VS troops as to my whereabouts.

Danerune 08-30-2012 08:02 AM

Re: PS2 Roster?
A 1:1 is pretty good. I am struggling mightily to even get close to that and in games like bf3 and COD I am always above 1:1 easily.

I think part of the problem is they are balancing it for one guy shooting at you when in most battles you have about 5 infantry, a couple tanks and about 50 liberators. In BF3 or COD most fights end up 1v1 and the ttk is ok for that.

Also Swad was saying there is no real feedback to when you are getting hit. There is not much sound for it or if there is its not noticeable enough.

I think Auraxium earning is always going to be slow they could beef it up for the beta tho but they make it slow so you want to buy their station cash.

Frothymug 08-30-2012 02:27 PM

Re: PS2 Roster?
I don't typically squad up with anyone. I wonder if this makes a difference in earning Auraxium. I'll give it a shot tonight. Hit me up on US West 02 if you guys are on. Again, my character name is Frothymug.

DAKOTA 08-30-2012 05:54 PM

Re: PS2 Roster?
I finally got it running today. i have basically been crashing vehicles and exploring bases. The gameplay has a huge upside IMO. I am very much reminded of PS1 in the very early beta where it was hard to see what the end game would feel like. Now I haven't been party to any large scale battles with more then 30 vs 30 YET. But I can see huge upside for tactices and squads already. I think by the end of the tweaking highly organized outfits will be able to swing the tides of battle.

Frothymug 08-30-2012 08:09 PM

Re: PS2 Roster?
Oh, Caithann... you can take that C-4 and shove it up your ass. I'll get you back for that one whenever I manage to find you again. ;)

Weevil 08-31-2012 08:20 AM

Re: PS2 Roster?
So I am interested in playing this, but so far I have been unable to find any of you online. Are you using the ATF teamspeak to find eachother, or is there another place you are all lurking?

Ghryphen 08-31-2012 09:16 AM or start adding friends. Pretty sure friends invites work while people are offline and they will be able to accept when they login. We had a fun time last night bitching about AA weakness and formed up like 6-7 maxes trying to clear the air.

Frothymug 08-31-2012 12:13 PM

Re: PS2 Roster?
I've been meaning to ask about TS. Is there a password requirement for your server?

Danerune 08-31-2012 12:24 PM

Re: PS2 Roster?
The dragonwolves outfit was disbanded today? Not sure

Ghryphen 08-31-2012 05:22 PM

Re: PS2 Roster?
Yeah, they were trying to change the leader, don't think Mani realized there were like 15 people in the outfit when it was disbanded.

The TS we have been on is, I think the PS2 channels can only be accessed by CDL members, sit in Group 2 to get dragged down to PS2.

Our TS server is, there are PS channels available there too.

Blackwolf 09-03-2012 01:39 PM

Re: PS2 Roster?
Been playing Darkwing on West 02 VS mostly. Tired of running around by myself so I'll roll TR today (DarkwingTR).

My vote is on VS after launch though.

I thought that name seemed familiar...

Danerune 09-06-2012 09:05 AM

Re: PS2 Roster?
A few of us have been doing stuff with CDL/Dragonwolves in PS2 those guys are a lot of fun.

I think I popped a head shot on you near the TR bio dome last night Gryph, right after Skillet (if its the real skillet) hosed down Quartex. NC 4 life!


Ghryphen 09-12-2012 10:33 AM

Hah, I never look at the names. I should more.

DAKOTA 09-12-2012 12:57 PM

Re: PS2 Roster?
do we have a list of char names and servers for everyone?

Frothymug 09-13-2012 08:58 PM

Re: PS2 Roster?
Still rockin' it on West 02 as FrothyMug

DAKOTA 09-17-2012 07:59 AM

Re: PS2 Roster?
lol well i still havent found you online at the same time yet :( damn kids!

Re: PS2 Roster?
I'm out to sea for another 11 days

Frothymug 09-18-2012 02:10 PM

Re: PS2 Roster?
I'm usually on in the evenings, when work, homework, and tutoring allow...

I was on for about an hour and a half last night before I had to get back on my homework. Tonight, I may be on for a bit later in the evening, but I have a tutoring client at 6 and then it's time to go grocery shopping with the gf when I get home. THEN, I should get some homework done ;)

With the server name changes what server we on now?

This is par for the course at the best of times if you're solo I think. Due to my computer's age I typically end a night with a 4/30 K/D ratio.

I highly recommend trying it with CDL in one of their ops (Mondays and Fridays from 8PM-10PM eastern). The game is much more fun with organized play and friends. :D

Stoke 10-12-2012 12:38 PM

Re: PS2 Roster?
I potentially could be available for that tonite. What server, etc?

SilverTalon 10-12-2012 12:44 PM

Re: PS2 Roster?
Derpy hooves.... :( I meant Monday and Wednesday is their formal ops, but they do typically have impromptu stuff on Fridays. The organized ops tend to be more formal with a minimum of chatter, the off-nights are a little looser when they can be.

It's on....Thebia? The west one, and the empire. I don't have CDL's TS information handy atm though. Gryph might be able to hook you up there.
