It's hard to believe that a whole year has passed already since the release of Planetside 2! In that time, we have had many great battles, refined our comms and training procedures, and our in game Outfit has grown to become one of the most respected on our server by bringing that special brand of TG teamwork, tactics, and community to yet another title.
From a performance standpoint, Planetside 2 has never been better. The developers' recent "Operation: Make Faster Game" optimizations have made significant increases in framerates for many. The game now runs buttery smooth for most players, even in the largest of battles.
What is This Planetside You Speak Of?
For those who may be unaware, Planetside 2 is a free to play MMO FPS featuring combined arms battles, potentially on a massive scale. So whether you would like to roll in one of our Armor squads, our excellent Air wing, or just ground pound as a good old fashioned Infantryman, you will be able to find a place to do so in our Outfit on the battlefields of Auraxis.
Combat can range in size from a nice tactical squad vs. squad fight over a small outpost, all the way up to to a massive multiple platoon affair requiring the coordination of many outfits, and everything in between. The game also offers an excellent in game platoon management UI, as well as great VOIP at the proximity, squad, platoon, and faction levels.
TGers are known for being great leaders and tacticians, and this title is no different. Our excellent Officers and NCOs have steered the Outfit to where it is today; some have even grown to become influential voices within our faction's alliance coalition on our server (Mattherson). We quite often play an important role in massive coordinated operations with the rest of our faction.
It Wouldn't Be a Proper Birthday Without a Party, Right?
Of course not! Therefore to celebrate, the TG PS2 Outfit will be hosting an extra special Friday Night Fights event this week. In addition to the great battles we are sure to get into, we plan to throw a little soiree. At some point (whenever a lull in the neverending war on Auraxis presents itself, likely toward the end of the evening's ops) we will take the opportunity to fall back out of combat and get cleaned up and into our Class As for a Black Tie Outfit Ball. Tasty, cold, delicious adult (or non) beverages and virtual hors d'oeuvres will be served as we reminisce with great war stories from the past year, as well as discuss what we'd like to see from the game and the Outfit in the coming year.
So whether you're one of those old Outfit members from the Beta that may have put the game aside for one reason or another, or a brand new player interested in seeing what all the PS2 fuss is about, please join us November 22 for some of that great TG style play and camaraderie. And a great party.
Oh yeah, I should also mention that in honor of Planetside 2's first birthday, SOE have declared a double XP weekend from Thursday 11/21 through Sunday 11/24.
