Hrm, how to start this. This is a bit of a rant expressing disappointment, giving credit where its due and the TL;DR is that I'm not going to quit playing, I'm just....disappointed.. I stopped playing a year ago because the game was going nowhere, I had been in the closed beta and loved every second of it, the devs seems to pay attention to the community and interact a lot and it was great, then out of nowhere they announce they're going live in Dec 2012... most of the community flipped at this screaming "this is no where near ready!" "it's missing half the game!" "What about outfit progression!" "What about continent locking!" "Why no lattice system!" and more.... I decided to reinstall PS2 again after half a year of not playing to see the only thing that had changed was that the Harrasser was added and the levels had been redesigned. Next to no change to UI, a bit more rebalancing but still no new features (just little things like slight cover additions/base redesigns), so I packed up the horribly performing game and went back to other games. Yet another 6 months passes and I reinstalled, well I have to say hooooollyyyy crap the performance is amazing now. I can finally get a solid 60FPS with high settings (like I used to be able to in beta) and everything felt so much better as a result...but.. Still no new features (I'm not counting alerts as that is basically just text and a timer). I'm so saddened that this game that I've poured so many hours into and so much money has done so very little by comparison to what was promised during beta, it's been a freaking year and an entire continent is still without a lattice... seems very beta to me.. Now just going through the roadmap: (I may be wrong or off on a few of these, but this is what I remember from over a year ago) Unscheduled - Missions System = This was meant to be on releaseUnscheduled - Continent Locking = This was meant to be on releaseUnscheduled - Vehicle Zoning = This was meant to be on releaseUnscheduled - Player Generated Missions = This was meant to be shortly after release (within 6 months)Unscheduled - Implants = This was already in the game during beta.....Unscheduled - Outfit Progression= This was meant to be on releaseUnscheduled - Outfit Recruiting = This was begged for during betaUnscheduled - Outfit Base Capture = This was meant to be shortly after release (within 6 months)Unscheduled - Server Transfer Token = This was meant to be on releaseAll these promised features have the potential to completely change the way the game feels, cont locking allowed factions to force the server population to another continent! How rewarding would that feel! Player generated missions could add more life to the game. Outfit progression and outfit base capture, now this was a huge one, it was hinted at that you would actually be able to redesign a base with an editor (within preset blocks/tiles) and put turrets down along with having an outfit flag showing to display how awesome your outfit is. On top of that the lattice system you now see in game was begged for months on end to be added into the game, so many threads hundreds of pages long went into great detail showing battle flow, choke points and strategy that could be used with a lattice system and at least that's in and thank god for that. It's now less about the zerg and more about who can actually coordinate better which is absolutely fantastic. One other awesome feature (which took too long to get put in) is the player studio, I love so many items people have put in and it puts SOE's art team to shame, so much talent from these players, all my equipped cosmetic gear is player designed. Basically, at the end of the day I love PS2 as a concept, I have hundreds of hours in this game both in alpha, beta and release and I'm so very disappointed, not to mention mildly aggravated when I read through the forums and see the same damn threads that have been echoed for a year and a half yet are still never addressed by SOE. I'll still continue playing every now and then but I've lost all passion for this game, I keep trying to get back into it but it only lasts maybe a week before I shelve the game for another few months. I just hope that SOE pulls their finger out and injects some more life back into this with a massive update. Thanks for reading P.S: I haven't been reading/watching dev diaries or any regular updates, so if anything I've covered is already in the works or other awesome things I don't know about have been announced, please link them , Cheers.
