    Back on point though. I really want to join the PCG outfit but I intend to remain loyal to the NC after many years of service with them in PS1, so looks like I'll be forced to kill you all . Unless PCG plans to have outfits for all 3 factions (good idea).

    Good to know about the stealth thought they were just giving it to vs after they demoed it as a vs infiltrator.

    The problem with spiliting up the outfits, is the work involved. Better to focus on one and then if you want to run with your other friends made from PS1, then make your main with them and visit the PCG TR guild.

    It's your choice, but considering you can learn whilst offline and as long as character's are not on same server, you should be ok for gaining some skill points?

    Well... if there are lots of solid pilots already, I don't mind either hefting around the worlds biggest gun to brrrrrrap or pew pew peeps. Or I'll play a red hand... red from all the gore when I delve into peoples... open... gaping... *retch* wounds. (medic)

    Call me weird, but I just wouldn't play as anything other than the NC.

    I don't know if you played the first Planetside but if you did you probably know how loyal people got regarding their factions. It's silly I know but that's just the way it was, and I think for a lot of veterans it will carry over into PS2.

    you find with PCG guilds the majority of people will go where the staff are, look at ToR, I managed to get a decent following for the republic guild but it never got anywhere near the level of the imperial guild that was ran by the staff.

    how ever if you think you can get it off the ground I'm sure the staff most likely wouldn't mind you making a secondary guild for a different faction, but as I've said due to how the guilds work here if it isn't ran by staff it most likely won't do anywhere near as well.

    I am a six year vet of VS.

    I will play VS on release, but will most likely be on an American east coast server. So during my day time, I will be on european, with TR.
