Performance, performance, performance Over the game's lifetime, there has been no pain point discussed more often than that of performance. You've seen us attacking this problem from different angles throughout the past year (and the years before that!,) and while we've made significant strides with optimizing much of our underlying infrastructure, there wasn't much left for us to improve upon without some major overhauls first. Our continued quest for improvement has brought us here, after months of work and a coordinated effort from multiple departments throughout the company, we're pleased to announce that DX11 has arrived in PlanetSide 2. To top it all off, the updates give us better tools to diagnose and address performance concerns in the future. Players on all types of...

Hi folks, I removed and tidied the forum. Most of the threads were moved to either to the training section or the general area of the forums as there were no new posts in a year in those sections. I also re-ordered the forum a small bit and removed the descriptions from the forum sections to remove the visual clutter. what was removed:
After action reports
Buy and sell
music and films
Elite Dangerous section has been archived/hidden from view
The Elite dangerous can be easily restored if there is enough interest.
New Respawn System, Spawn Hopping is hopefully outdated with a lot more freedom about how and where you redeploy to (prioritizes under-pop fights with instant respawns/the frontline and after a delay, allows spawning in any owned hex). It also doesn't force you off of over popped fights anymore.
HIVES are coming back as a new alert, REFINE AND RELOAD. The idea is that you mine and dump at a centralized set of locations (once full, they move/respawn). The faction that mines/ dump the most, wins and gets access to a Valk/ANT hybrid (called a WASP). When full, HIVEs launch into orbit destroying anything over them. There are always two HIVEs active.
The Wasp currently has a chin mining turret, afterburners AND pilot controlled anti-armour rocket pods (on a Valk chassis currently). The idea is to try to introduce a new "variant" vehicles as alert rewards. These would come fully "certed" with...

New Planetside 2 producer letter apologising for the disconnects player is having. they are extending the Halloween event till nov 11
It's been a while since I’ve written an official Producer’s letter, but I wanted to take a moment to address current events and our plans for the PC version of PlanetSide 2. I usually prefer to communicate with the community via less formal methods, like Twitter and Reddit. But given the recent events tied to our Halloween 2018 update, I want to address a few things about what went wrong and how we plan on making right. In addition to that, I would also like to share a little bit about the direction PlanetSide 2 is headed as we approach our 6th anniversary. For now, we’ll leave the topic of the PS4 version of the game and issues we have been battling on that front for another day, but know that they are on our radar. Last week we deployed our Nanite of the Living Dead V: Seeds of Terror game update to PC. Soon after, we...

Hi folks, @ksagamer n'company have made videos look like a lot of fun to make so I spent a few nights collecting some footage and another couple of evenings editing them whilst I was stuck in a hotel.
Although the gameplay is ritual sudoku inducing I did have a LOTof fun with the editing, trying to get smooth transitions, sound synced and reasonable captions. If you've not tried it, I highly recommend it. Next up, find a decent font pack (and learn how to shoot)!
