February was a difficult month for the battle-locked soldiers of Planetside 2's Auraxia. During the four week period, over 100 million soldiers fell in glorious war - before subsequently respawning and presumably dying again. And SOE have provided a slew of other stats celebrating their bloody conflict. Among them is the revelation that 42.31 recruits are dying every second. If that rate holds steady, it means 380.79 players saw their end while I typed that last sentence. Only a sentient torso remains.
Those figures will likely increase soon. A double XP and double SC event is due to take place this weekend. It's just in time for the release of Update 05, which brings account wide unlocks and Empire-specific rocket launchers.
Finally, if you want some information on the what's powering all this chaos and carnage, SOE have also released a video detailing the flexibility of the ForgeLight, Planetside 2's core engine.
