I've been playing Planetside 2 almost daily for 2-3 years now and have had some epic battles in that time. I was addicted! However since server merges, removal of different alert types and endless bugs it has become unbearable. I cancelled my paying subscription ages ago and kept playing hoping that "today when i log on it will be different"... but it never is. It's just the same old &*$% different day with Planetside 2. The game is completely ruined by morons and makes no effort to combat it. The 3 major problems with the game. 1) No meta game. No tactics. I know dev's have posted recently about "meta game is in the works!" ... but I've heard that enough times before... even pre hossin. So I think it highly unlikely we'll see anything close to a meta game this time next year. I'd actually bet money on it. 2) Zergs There is zero tactics to taking a base. It's literally a case of having a pop great enough to camp the spawn room. You just get paths of zergs taking base after base after base with no resistance. Then you have the absolutely moronic zergs during alerts that just zerg their way up the side of the map completely ignoring multiple territories that require immediate defense. 3) Cowards Again.. no one defends. I don't know how many countless times I've redeployed to save a base thinking we have enough pop to defend it... only to get there and see everyone standing behind the spawn room shields sniping. "we can't run outside we're going to die!" ... Why is it with my light assault I can make it to the A point in seconds! If I had even just 1 or 2 guys backup we could retake it! But everyone just sits inside the spawn room. Then obviously I end up getting weapon lock because I C4 all the spawn room warriors. Or you get the guys who have 10 seconds to reach the A point, join in the max crash... only to hang around outside the doorways in the last few vital seconds because they don't want to run in and die. The amount of times I've seen 3-4 enemy hold an A point against squads full of allies who are all too scared to run in is a joke. One tiny tweak that I've seen asked for many many times... that would save this game is... make spawn shields bullet proof... on both sides. That is literally altering 1 line of code. Or adding an extra spawn room to each base. (Admittedly a slightly harder update.) Instead of addressing any of the major gameplay concerns.. which are turning people off this game every single day... SOE/DayBreak think adding more camo or cosmetics is going to solve everyones problems. NO I DONT WANT A CHRISTMAS CAMO HARASSER.... I WANT TO ENJOY THIS GAME AGAIN!
