The Vanu Sovereignty has been the biggest failure and blight in planetside's history. From day 1 till now, the VS have been unfairly treated and nerfed. Given useless weapons and mechanics, and as a faction overall have been treated as a family's pet cat that nobody likes. Weapons: F-Tier Objectively the worst lmgs in the game, who cares about no bullet drop when your guns always do less base damage then their NC counterparts? Phaseshift? More like the Phase****. Every gun is systemically worse then TR/NC upper class gear, has been this way for years, and until the planetside 2 society starts to recognize this issue the problem will only get worse. Vehicles: F-Tier Magrider: Yey I can use boost only to run into a vanny with an IWINBUTTON, or an anchored prowler. 0 chance of counter play. Can't rotate turret, forcing you to fully engage, exposing yourself to more rear shots then any other MBT. Sauron is stupid weak, can't do any damage with it, insanely hard to hit anything, should bring back it's original release version, at least it could do something then, same with the PPA (which is a JOKE now.) All the ES weapon weaknesses are only amplified on the harasser, which is why most opt for the Halberd as at least that weapon wasn't nerfed due to tie's to the VS. Players: S++Tier Honestly, VS players are just higher skilled, there really isn't any other way to explain how we somehow manage to win most alerts and have the highest preforming LMG/MBT. It's a testament to the VS's fighting spirit and dauntless courage in the face of insurmountable odds. Time and time again I have seen better coordination between squadmates/platoons on VS vs other factions I think it's just that the VS naturally draws in players who have an IQ above 80, rather than some random hillbilly whining about his "freedom." As a result, the VS are the minority of players, but due to natural superiorities are able to perform better. I believe the critical issue here is that we as the VS need to be recognized and not ostracized, we are players too (better then you though) looking for a slightly better life.
