    Three continents that I know of, down from about 10 in PS1, not sure if they're bigger or whatever. Seem to be based on old PS1 continents, Indar is based on Ishundar for example.

    8x8km for 64km squared world each I believe.

    This vid is good for giving some information.

    25 (75) square mile doesn't seem a lot of space it's only roughly the size of the 2 original WoW continents for the entire game so with vehicles it will seem small, altho I suppose a lot of the problem with the original was people were too spread so you ended up with massive dead zones.

    [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PlanetSide"]Planetside[/URL] is more than just a new game coming around the corner. When representing the Vanu Sovereignty, you should be available 25/7 and know it's long vast [URL="http://wiki.planetside-universe.com/ps/Vanu_Sovereignty"]history[/URL], the reason's why, we rose up against the TR and why the NC declared war on us.

    With Planetside 2 just round the corner, many players will be online and available during all hours of the week. To lead an outfit for yourself or on behalf of PC Gamer which is what I hope you mean, by recruiting here, you'll need more dedication than just a weekend jaunt. Operation's will be ongoing everyday and it's solid, dependable leadership, that will win the day and promote not only VS, and PCG, but the game population balance. That requires a LOT of skill in leadership, considering the numbers PCG and other outfits will bring to this game, from the original planetside game.


    My advice for you is to join a solid group, where the teamwork and leadership is already in place, to learn from them . In the future, if you want to start a new outfit, you'll at least have the knowledge through gameplay of what's expected from you as a leader.

    Good luck.
    Well your points are very valid but I have in fact played the original and even before I started recruiting people for this one I have thought of tactics, squads, class leaders (in my system they are called chiefs), how the teamspeak will work, how to keep people loyal and formations.

    I am going to do a small test on the beta with some of the chiefs as I have signed up 13 people with 8 of them chiefs they are people who I trust and have discussed how to best utilize there class of troops or vehicles.

    For example one of our chiefs is in control of all transport on the ground and he will be assisted by our escort chief in making sure the trucks reach their destination unharmed.

    As for back ups during the beta I hope to find at least one Australian or American troop who I can trust but I will not give away everything there are TR everywhere.

    Also I am going to use the app to communicate with my outfit while I am away, at school or meant to be asleep.

    This is PC Gamer's website and you still haven't said if you will be representing PC Gamer, or if this is just your own outfit.

    Can you clarify for the readers?.

    Sounds like his own outfit.

    That is my thought also.... so it's kind of worrying that he's trying to recruit on a website that is already doing it's own planetside group. I know other's want to provide smaller groups insides of the PCG TR outfit, making a VS one on the same server, could cause problems also, especially since there is a twelve hour lockout on the original Planetside to stop team switching, which could interfere with operation's on both sides if continuing the same ruling on Planetside 2.

    Well I was hoping to represent PCGUK because not everyone wants to play Terran but as I have not got a very positive result I will have to see (I was going to be on a different server)

    And also you may not think i have any experience but I do maybe too much

    But this was really for people like me who love PCG but hate Terran scum XD

    Sadly as I have said I have not got a very positive response and maybe shall decide to post this somewhere else.

    to be fair with how PCG operates and the type of person the guilds here attract, your rules are far too demanding for the majority.

    your basically more or less demanding to have people with no life since it sounds like you want them to never be offline, now most people have work, school and other things they need to do so only a very small minority of the player base could offer the time you request never mind the average PCG member.

    you also request people buy points, for most in a pay to play MMO they will be verry unwilling to put extra money in when a lot already complain there shouldn't be pay to play charges to start with.

    as for this comment "And also you may not think i have any experience but I do maybe too much" I don't know about others but that to me is just saying you are going to be very complacent and most likely get everyone killed.
