@Lateris What's wrong with purple?

@Lateris It's funny, because if you're making an argument from camouflage, the blue-and-yellow NC stands out more than anyone in all the screenshots we've seen. The VS actually blend in really well. Auraxis has natural purple hues, and the VS purple is dark and desaturated.

@Lateris Actually, the artistic director of the game is a Vikings fan. He also did the art for the original Planetside, and he plays as Vanu, so it actually may have something to do with the choice of purple.

Can some shazbots enlighten me if there is going to be some tribesish style shootin' in this? Or is this very much a Planetside sequel as the name suggests.

Hopefully this fares better then MAG. I felt it was a little lacking.

@SmashZilla

If it's like the first PlanetSide it won't play nearly as fast as Tribes. It's also got a much larger scale to it, and more of an emphasis on vehicles and installations.

The Vanu sound very OP. I mean they sound like they should be OP. If you have access to the most advanced, secret technology others can't get their hands on yet manage to be equal in strength to the other factions, something is wrong.

@Dumac Its all part of the paper rock scissors philosophy, trade one strength for another weakness. This counters that which can counter this other thing.. etc..

@Alchemda I think he's just wondering what counters their superior technology.

The balance in game design terms is obvious, it just doesn't match the fluff.

@Saerain I don't think superior technology means necessarily better. Kinda like how in movies the superior evil people get beaten. Really we have seen this a thousand times.

I drop this tip for you guys and no Massively love? Either way, epic is the only word to describe this, and can never be applied to any other game.

@Lateris obviously you haven't seen the advanced camouflage schemes and optional color pallets.
