    Never played PS2 but yeah, Firefall is mostly PVE. There is PVP but I've never done it. PVP is a separate component inside the game except for Duels. I don't think Duels award anything though.

    Hi 3870. Tips ? Be specific.

    PVP in the game is pretty box standard as shooter PVP combat goes, however I found it particularly annoying because of all the jet pack use. All of the combat arenas are pretty detailed and designed with elevation in mind for tactical play should you require it.
    However constant jet packing by everyone makes tactical maps useless, and results in some silly looking and silly feeling play. The good news is, that you can enter in PVP ques easily and get matches fairly quickly versus strangers. Your other PVP options are duels 1vs1 or squad duels 5vs5.

    For PVE, starting out is a lot more streamlined than it used to be, as they now have a full trainer mode as well as starter missions to get you up to speed.
    Planetside and Firefall are not to be compared in any way other than they use guns.

    In the original post, I put a bunch of tips. Remember, send me a PM if you want to be invited to the TPU army with your character name.

    Firefall is much more pve oriented. The fighting style is also very different. A lot more movement involved.

    I quit for the day. I played long enough to get the 7 pilot tokens required to buy a Recluse. I also managed enough resources to end the day with a 8.5-hour resource refiner and over 80k crystite in my inventory thanks to the double crystite weekend. It was a good day for Firefall. :D

    I could do with coming over to the US server sometimes, I'm already used to ability lag with healing balls etc and on EU server it's sometime, laggy, sometime not. But on US servers, it's much more predictable; always the same lag pretty much.

    Yea on EU West, haven't seen an EU East so far.
    Which reminds me, anyone seen a Sunken Harbour Invasion within the last few hours? Seems they've disabled them due to the problems caused by the instance-hoppers.

    Double Crystite Weekend and the 7 token offer is officially over. I managed to buy the Recluse and Dragonfly as well as accumulate over 170,000 crystite.

    Now I bought the Raptor too during the 7 token offer which, by the way, is said to end tomorrow (the 20th).

    I only have two frames left to get: Firecat and Electron. Yay!

    Dragonfly sucks at combat but its ability to keep lots of other people alive is incredible. There was like 10 people working on a stage 3 tornado including me and I managed to prevent any of them from dying. A few got close several times but I still managed to keep them alive.

    So far, I'm still thinking Mammoth and Rhino are the best frames overall and Bastion is the best for thumping. The dreadnaughts' ability to own almost any situation makes them a no-brainer.

    Hehehe just wait until you max your Fly; I'm >1100 DPS on Bio Rifle 4; didn't use my best resources for that either. I use healing ball mainly (my stage 3 one heals/damages 5 targets at a time), extremely effective with practice. For long distances, fire it and try to get high before you pop it; makes it much easier to judge how far it is from you. With a 10/10/8 frame it's pretty much no effort to keep everyone alive in BWA. Fly is definitely my favourite frame overall; a close second to Recluse.

    I spent like 450 Beans on Battleframe slots back in CB, so when OB hit I had all frames ready for me to play with. Just started using Mammoth and it's ok when you get over 5 on Mass; 90% speed multi was killing me :laugh:

    If I read the email right, there's another double crystite weekend coming up as well as the launch of a new dreadnaught frame and heavy Chosen enemy. I think the frame, after the 27nd, will be purchased with red beans exclusively.

    I'll be on to try the new battleframe, and I missed the last double crystite weekend.

    Whoa! They REALLY cranked up the difficulty. Also, Arsenal is awesome. It might not have as much point-blank power as the other Dread's Gatling guns but it can be surprisingly accurate at 50+m using bursts of fire. The alt-fire is kind of worthless (supposed to be more accurate but bursting primary fire seems better anyway).

    Haven't been able to play since our baby arrived, but I did receive a Firefall hat and poster in the mail. Don't care for the poster but the hat (like a winter hat) is pretty sweet. Will try to make some time to play Firefall hopefully in the next couple weeks.

    Firefall got another small patch to fix issues in the last major patch.
