Default Planetside 2

anyone here play?
I was on beta and now the game has officially launched.

Im east server, vanu soverence? cant remember the name.


I was surprised at the scale of the game. a friend of mine told me about it and I like it alot, esp its free. Its a futuristic battefield 3 on roids. There are 3 continents you can spawn onto each has different layout and environment.i noticed one of the continents cycles day and night time. A lot of land , air vehicles.

The gameplay is area control, you have a few buildings with aa guns and launch pads that you can control in each region of the large continent. from most bases you can launch air vehicles, land and change class. the larger bases have the air. each team has a main base on corner of map, total of 3 teams to choose from when you create character. to capture you have to "hold" the territory untill the bar fills with your color.


I play as a infiltrator. (sniper)

I played a ton in beta, but have not had time to play recently. It's a badass game for free, probably the best f2p game i've played, EVER. Check it out, gays.

I will have to. And I am glad that I just built a badass PC, because it looks amazing but also like it is a bitch to hardware.

It's a bitch to hardware indeed. But i still get 40+ fps or so on my system, and its FAR from top of the line. (i3 2120 ivy bridge, gtx460, 8g ram)

I was in a ton of beta as well. I'm currently downloading the game all 6gb of it. I'm playing with my "guild/clan/groupofonlinebuddys" as NC in the east coast server waterson.

I got a bunch of new computer parts in, i hope to be running this game max settings and still getting 50+ fps always.

I currently have (going to be replaced) GTX460, 4g ram, amd965, ect. All i'm going to say is i bought a 1200w power supply.

Though, i have the superior processor.

Actually, i launched the game last night and it was running amazingly smooth. I was shocked. There is a difference between beta and the real game i can tell for sure. That OR there was just less people in the game, i was in a pretty populated area.

Even if you have one of the i7 ivy 6 core 12mb chips I still win as there is nothing other the high end design that needs that chip and the i5-3570k is the de facto gaming chip right now. i7s ivy are just e-pee badges for $200+ more.

Desktop Ivy Bridge. Intel Core i7-3770K and Core i5-3570K Processors Review. Page 6 - X-bit labs

But like I said if you do a lot of application stuff i7 is the chip to have but for gaming is not worth the cash.

I don't need to run word documents. I have a big cache and a fast HT to run one big videogame.

lol

Not starting world war three here. It is what it is.

Newegg.com - ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Ordered it while it was $150 shipped, no rebate needed. Was an impulse buy and likely to send it back from a z77 chip board.

Update, Nvm, the board being shipping is the revised z68 or 2.0. Will run 3ed gen CPUs and PCIx3 th same as a z77

Nice. We're going to be running almost identical specs in the grand picture.

So the ivy bridge runs pretty dang hot from what i hear (compared to sandy) you going to use an aftermarket cooler. Or just stock?

Yeah that pushes the air towards the back of the case. Or at least somewhere.

I have a bit of hate for the fans that just sit on top and don't really push air anywhere. Those things don't belong anywhere but the trash. IMO.

Also that comparison URL you posted is bias.


My 3Dmark11 score for my FX-8120 was 9946 just for the CPU

I'll play some if you guys are down to chat and strategize. I got tired of playing alone and running around, but had a blast when playing with 1 or more friends.

Also, how much of an improvement was there on the IVY bridge vs Sandy bridge? If i watned to upgrade processors, whats the cheapest one i should go for? I have an i32120 sandy bridge atm.
