I haven't played Planetside for any consistent amount of time for the better part of a year. Plenty of reasons why but nothing to the effect of I hated this game. But with a new comp and peripherals I'm back in the gunner seat to rip the NC and TR a new one. Or at least respawn trying. I decided to post this because something has occurred to me. The Vanu Sovereignty are a boring faction. There is no longer a core theme inherent to the VS. At one point in time (in a galaxy far far away) we used to be the "mobility" faction our faction specific weapons had .75 ADS multipliers and that's really all I can think about ATM but the faction feels stale feels non unique. I mean I see we have some heat mechanics... Meh (minus the beetlegeuse am i right?) but all in all i don not see a trait that we are centered around. TR lots of Dakka, NC heavy hitters (looking at you gauss saw) but for the love of Christ what do the VS have as a theme any more? I'm not ******** about balance, Quite frankly I'm sick of the word. What I,m asking is what makes the Vanu special???? I get it we have some gimmicks here and there but overall I feel like the middle child that has to mimic the other guys for parental acknowledgement. I wanted to write this privately to a dev or maybe and suggestions box but in the 3 minutes i looked I didn't find one.
