    Arrow PlanetSide 2 PC Gamer UK Outfit: The Basics

    PC Gamer is going to war, and we'd like you to join us. It's too early to say what server we'll be on, but it's the perfect time to start making plans.

    We've decided to go with the Terran Republic for the European PCG outfit. It's simple, really: our colours are black and red, and so are theirs. We're also pretty sure we can muster the forces necessary to take advantage of the TR's 'victory through superior numbers' policy. We're less keen on the whole 'fear is the most powerful motivating force' thing, though. We're pretty sure that getting to yell things like "prepare to drop!" and "hold the line!" without irony is the most powerful motivating force.

    Other than that, we're still figuring out our roles and the command structure of the outfit. We've been daydreaming, though: I'll be flying Galaxy dropships, escorted by Rich in his Mosquito. Owen is dead-set on driving the battle bus, or Sunderer. We don't have any actual soldiers yet.

    Until beta begins, this forum is just a place to meet each other, discuss the game, and draft up a structure for when we're finally let in. So, let us know: what will your role be in the battle for Auraxis?

    Damn, a third outfit I would like to join when PS2 launches. The choice's are gonna be hard...

    Well, as an old hand at the original game, I settled into mostly a support role. I would drive an AMS close to the front lines, deploy it then begin setting up defences around it as a Combat Engineer. If this role was covered I would play medic by healing troops with the med app and repairing MAX units/vehicles. Another favourite role of mine was a combat driver. I was reasonably well known on Werner at the time for being a sick Marauder driver and also dabbled a bit in driving Prowler tanks.

    I'd have to wait and get a chance to play to see if I'd slip into these roles again, as the big focus has been on vehicles and combat with not a lot of mention of the support roles and my beloved Marauder has been decommissioned.

    Can I be your co-pilot? I'm hoping to fly the Galaxy for a bit, as a mobile spawn point... until I rage quit over being shot down lots. Then I might just find me a space spanner and fix things... you do use space spanners to fix hearts and limbs... right?

    Question, can you only be in a single outfit at a time?

    count me in, loved the original I'll be there on the front lines shooting/blowing things up (unless there is a recon/stealth spec I can play, but I think they are VS only)

    This is going to be excellent, being 9 when the original came out I missed a trick with Planetside and now that the beta is fast approaching I'd love to be involved with PCG's operations

    I'd like to do some behind the enemy lines stuff. Something like a small squad all riding quads raiding enemy outposts.

    If thats not happening I'll take a seat on the bus

    Sign me up! Pilot sounds awesome, though I'd be happy to fill any role the outfit needs tbh.

    I'd be up for getting a small tactical assault squad up, as its more interesting than just being in the crowd.
