Don't worry about it. Same happened with me.

It's the perfect double, as Planetside 2 servers are up and down. Mostly down.

So play GW2 until the servers pop back up again. Perfect.

IGN is giving away keys to all prime members, 7 bux a month or something and you can cancel straight away. I'm using that to hopefully grab a key for this weekend (their site says it will be free for all IGN members on the 7th but I suspect this means "free to join a raffle")

Got a key no problem after my payment went through to IGN, so if you're desperate that's a simple option. I played a few hours last night with a little success, I had no idea what I was doing at first but eventually found some action.

Being using my press access to play a bit - still quite a bit laggy.

There's a big group of us from Bittah who play as Vanu on West 1, and are on generally every night. I'll be establishing a VS outfit soon, so if you're keen to play in a group (only way to play tbh) i'll keep you all informed

Hit enter to chat, and then /yell for everyone in the region (incl. enemies) or just leave it blank for regular chat

There's not AU servers right now, West1 is the best so far, but there will be AU servers on release

IDK how you check ping, but the lag isn't that bad, playing from Aus to the US

Hey all, this is the steam community I've created to try and bring the aus community together, PLEASE PLEASE join it if you're an Australian. It'll give us one location so we can communicate and coordinate outfits and so on. I'm trying to get people from reddit, whirlpool, bittah and here so we can have a somewhat active PS2 community.

http://steamcommunity.com/groups/AustralianPlanetside

Also - if the moderators can move this thread into the main section of PC games? I don't think it's really an MMO, and having it in the larger section will give it more visibility. It's got massive scale, and I guess the unlocks that it has are kinda like an MMO but BF3 has a similar system

What does MMO mean to you?

Quote:
Massively multiplayer online game:
A massively multiplayer online game (also called MMO) is a multiplayer video game which is capable of supporting hundreds or thousands of players simultaneously. By necessity, they are played on the Internet, and feature at least one persistent world. They are, however, not necessarily games played on personal computers. Most of the newer game consoles, including the PSP, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo DSi and Wii can access the Internet and may therefore run MMO games. Additionally, mobile devices and smartphones based on such operating systems as Windows Mobile, Google's Android, and Apple iPhone are seeing an increase in the number of MMO games available.

MMOGs can enable players to cooperate and compete with each other on a large scale, and sometimes to interact meaningfully with people around the world. They include a variety of gameplay types, representing many video game genres.

Yeah, it really fits two definitions. I'm suggesting that it get moved out to the other page so it gets more visibility.

Edit: It's actually in the subforum MMORPG. Now, shall I get the dictionary definition of MMORPG out for you?

It's where all MMOs go, people are smart enough to figure it out. But maybe ask the mods for a sub-forum name change.

I don't think it's necessary to ask for the subforum to be renamed. I'm simply saying that it would make sense for this thread to be moved out into the main Games forum. It's not an MMORPG for starters, and secondly it'd get more visibility.

I don't see why you recommend my asking for the mods to change the name of the sub-forum.
