  • If you get with a good group of people (very easy to do, which is a break from the norm of 12 year old asshats on most fps games) then you can spend hours a day playing. Sure, it has bugs, performance problems and some really boring moments, but when its fun, its the best game ever.

    Servers dead? There are 1 or 2 pop locks on every server each day at around 8gmt and the US servers get more and more busy as the night draws on. 1 locked cont = 133 people per empire, and its usually only ever locked if the enemy is there in large numbers or locking it themselves.

  • "It's a great time to be a part of the world's only real MMOFPS!...Regarding the player count, that's strictly confidential info that our competitors would like to know...so we're not telling"

    ...umm what competitors? They're the only MMOFPS...

    "we're very much looking forward to the efforts Marketing and Sales are making soon to get more faces looking at the game...[Are there any plans to release another commercial expansion pack to the game?] - Not at this time"

    ...good luck to Marketing and Sales, they're going to need it. Still, if AC2 can survive this long with a handful of players, I'm sure Planetside can linger on for a year at least.
