    Planetside is one of those rare games that actually inspired faction loyalty in people. Probably because you made so many friends of the same faction, your entire outfit played it and the game penalised you quite hard for switching.

    Imps / Rebs. Terran / Conglomarate. Bad / Good.


    Think I will stick to the Vanu Soverignty rather than those outdated moral standing groups.

    Dunno I played it from launch until Sept 2003 until they proved they still cannot provide good content with CC and then eventually quit for good when BFRs came out.

    I just played solo and tagged along with random people helping them out like healing/repairing when were were getting our arses handed to us in towers. I never joined an outfit or a squad or even gained a CR level.

    I just played every faction and had fun playing with the different weapons. Each team was so bland that the only differences were the weapons/vehicles. The only reason I tended to go Vanu was cause the Max units had Jetpacks and that could be so fun.

    Until the Deci became OP and killed maxes in two shots of corse.

    All three factions are standing for something I think.
    TR stands for Loyalty
    NC stands for Liberty
    VS stands for Truth

    Except the NC is backed by mega corporations who want total "freedom".

    Not that it matters, storyline is not what you should be basing that decision on.

    you may mock the VS but their gear just looks way better, the others are too realistic, I don't play games to shoot things with bullets when I can burn them up with lasers.

    I like the rebel ethos of NC but as a pilot I have to go for the Vanu, the most maneuverable aircraft. Didn't play the PS1 as I didn't have broadband when it was populated so I'm going off experience in Battlefield, Battlefront and ArmA. (My arma stint has proved that piloting is fun but is improved by some form of lack of realism)
