PlanetSide 2 Announcement This Week

PlanetSide2.com has a countdown timer at about two days and counting, and a new PlanetSide 2 Facebook Page saves us any math issues by promising an announcement on July 7 (Thursday) at 7:00 pm PDT. The meta description on the website offers more: "PlanetSide 2 is the only first person shooter that delivers truly epic, massive combat on a scale never before seen in stunning, breathtaking detail. Be a part of explosive action in a futuristic world with forces ranging from tactical squads to thousand player armies all taking place in real-time on enormous open-world continents." Thanks PlanetSide Universe.

Thousand player armies... what sort of magic internet provider are we supposed to have for this to work?

Any provider really. Its never been about the internet you have, its always the servers lagging on other end for massive battles.

Now graphics lag is a different story. Loading up on screen hundreds of avatars at a time is going to be laggy on low end hardware. Depending on engine I suppose.

P.S: I hate when people call it "internet lag" when its not the internet at all.
