    yeah on mattherson(sp?) the Vanu dogs and Terrans are dominating. Indar.

    I like the Terran highspeed firerate. but I prefer the NC stopping power. Using the Infiltrator on the TR vs the infiltrator on the NC, the NC wins. usually only 1 shot at any range to kill. Hell, I have one shotted VS or TR with my pistol. ^_^

    I am really bad when playing NC. I think it is their slow rate of fire. The TR guns seem nice. Lots of damage real quick. Whats special about the VS?

    I wonder why it didn't pop up in their server maintanence last night from 10pm-1pm. I was trying to play at that time and was about to go play ps2 now.

    I've been trying to figure out the air vehicles. I can now fly them pretty well but I am not so well in fire fights yet. Its hard to track when you are doing flips mid air.

    Better to join up with a squad.
    If the Squad leader is competent, they will set out markers and actually talk to the squad whether the squad listens or not.

    This will help in getting into the action where there are other people from your squad who can get killed before you do.

    Not much Vanu love over this way either because we own two continents most of the time.
    So the Smurfs and the TR pick on us at Indar first before picking on each other.

    :D

    Sounds like helios. Esamir is always vanu. Indar is constantly is never owned by anyone by much and always seems to be owned the least by the vanu. Amarish seem to be traded a lot.

    If I played because of the back story I would very quickly choose the NC. I tried all three factions and I play best as the vanu which is semi ok; I need more practice and certs.

    On more serious notes:

    What fps do you guys get? I have a 4.5ghz 2500k and a 7970 overclocked to 1000mhz and I get 55fps avg.

    Every time I start the game I get about 2 inch size black bars moving accros the loading screen until the game finally loads to the character choice screen. Every time I exit the game, it crashes. Does anyone else get those?

    Classes. What do you guys like and why? I do realize we play in different factions but they should be similar enough. Initially I like the lite infantry guy with the jet pack because I liked the mobility. Now I prefer the heavy class, not max, because I can get a lot of kills. I have been playing the medic a lot also because it is a exp monster. You can kill a lot of people by constantly healing yourself. You get exp for healing people, and a lot of exp for reviving.

    I've been exclusively playing light assault because I love the jet pack and I've spent so many cert points on the class I'm kind of committed to it now. The packs are super sweet after about the third upgrade, you can get to most anywhere.

    I am in the outfit Gerk. I just was invited to them so I play with them. They are pretty organized and often have at least 2 squads in a platoon going. We play as the vanu. Maybe we could get some vs tr cooperation versus the nc if you get what I am saying...

    Downloading a 2.5GB patch, seems that there are a few new weapons and fixes being applied. Last weekend was a Double XP event, and I didn't find out until late Sunday night, drat.
