I got into the beta and must say I am also dissapointed so far.

The graphics are fine and everything but the objectives aren't very clear and it's hard to understand where the battle fronts are etc.

I wish they kept the same layout as Planetside 1 and just upgraded the graphics.

Getting your REK out and hacking a console praying that an enemy doesnt come up behind you and jackhammer your back in half was the best rush ever.

Changing it so you just need to to stand next to the terminal has taken soul out of how Planetside works as well as in many other areas.

That's seriously sad. I remember the heart pumping and the ears ringing hoping to hear for movement behind you when I was hacking away at a console. That or playing with teammates and we would storm the base, one was the designated hacker and everyone did their utmost to keep them alive while the hack was occurring. This sort of change now makes it the standard fare of CTF of MMOs...

They only added hacking last patch so give them a few version to improve it, they are also just starting to focus on the larger meta game / objective side of the game and its gotten much better over the last few weeks.

Pretty much up to 1-2 months or so ago the beta was nothing more then a technical test / bug squashing..

Guess I should jump in again and have another crack, I was in the first roll out of the tech test and while it was fun there was some issues (obviously). Plus it didn't help that none of my friends were in the beta either.

Will have to jump in and try it out again.
Anyone know of any clans/ organised groups hitting it up? Gets a bit annoying going without a squad..
