Planetside 2 = unbalanced , dying game
This game is dying very fast ... servers had very high population and every map was full of people and epic fight. Now every server is medium to low and only epic fights are on INDAR ( one map). AMERISH is always empty and ESAMIR almost too...
Faction are very unbalanced and population is another topic... this game has a very bad problems in population and vehicle/weapons balance...
ZERGS.... WTF is this ? If you go with zerg it will be boring and easy mode for noobs.... if you go with small group you will be killed by enemy ZERG :D really?.
Less and less people play this game every day and this game is all about mass fights with many people. But if this game doesnt have people, it will not have mass fights and everybody will return to BF3/COD ...
This game will play only fanboys who say as always :" its a great game"... NO IT ISNT.
This game has a great potentional but if devs dont fix all this problems they will lose a lot of people and money of course.
I have played this game many many hours and spend a lot of money on it... and I can give you a advice... try it, have some fun and leave it if they will not fix it... DONT SPEND MONEY

The problem is that they have to much servers. At launch it was few servers with high/very high population but then they launch alot more servers so now everyone is on medium low

The game has 14 servers. Some should be merged.
But even if the number of servers is halved, that is still a lot of servers.

Not that it really matters to me, because I moved to the most crowded server (Miller).

I expect 5 years from now there will be 3+ medium/full servers (USA west, USA east, Europe). 10 Years from now there will be 1 full server and I will be on it.

they should allow server transfer .. another problem... if you bought something on one character you cannot transfer is to another server or character.. and you have to play on the same server :(

And on Ceres its alot of people's on the other continents too. But Terran love indar

Devs said they will make purchases count for all characters. Maybe in 2013.

big MAYBE 2013 :( problems is Devs dont communicate with players and this game is all about players and community. This is not like BF3 with 3 mil. premium and 20 mil. sold copies.. this game stands on players and fast reaction of devs to this community.
For example... every one know that magrider on VS side is OP... even a VS player see this fact and devs dont do anything about that... how could they create TANK with strafing abillity and no bullet drop cannon? good VS driver can be more effective than sniper becasue of no bullet drop... every one who plays FPS see this is OP thing and have no place in balanced game. They want monec from shop? they have work hard on their product.

Not much in december.
But overall they communicate more than other games do.

We will see which way this game will go ... but in the state as it is ... just waste of time ... you need a luck to be a part in epic battle ( not in crown sector or crossroad sector). the Most time its a massacre on your side or enemy side. Ijust want more from this game.

i have to agree with you about the magriders, they are very OP with strafe, i just retreat with my prowler if i dont land a shot after 5.

but what you said about the devs not communicating is wrong. this is one of the only games i've played that the devs actually listen to the players, its something that i would love for EA/Dice to do, i have started to hate battlefield because of Dice not talking/listening. And Halo 4 my god i would love to car bomb 343i for ruining a good franchise

The magrider's main cannon has bullet drop. The Sauron is the gunner's seat. If you want your gunner to hit anything at range with any amount of accuracy, you have to keep the magrider stationary. Hence, no strafing.

The strafing abililty of the magrider is nice, but when a magrider goes head to head with either of the two other faction's tanks, it will lose (assuming that all players are fairly skilled with their tanks). The magrider is definitely not OP. If anything about the magrider is OP, it would simple be its hover and magburner abilities, which allow it to get in many places that other faction's tanks can't get to.

Its called the Holidays dude, of course there arent going to be many people on, some people do have things to do other then be on here.

Now while ive noticed the drop in people also, you still have to understand that its a holiday month and not everyone is home for the holidays.

Its most likely going to stay like this until after the new year.

but on the other hand peopla have more time during holiday times to play ... but losing population on every server is not becasue holiday...its becasue balance in game... as i wrote before we will see what time will bring to game.

I had an epic battle this morning at 5AM. Sure, if you're just back capping you might not see anyone, but if you want to look for a real fight, they're not hard to find.

Perhaps it has something to do with the holliday and people spending time with thier family instead of online with friends?
HybridHelix Dec 27, 2012 @ 9:38am 
I always find an epic fight when Im on. I notice that it is almost on endir. I've only played the game for a few weeks and I'm loving it.
