I'm not detecting hate. I'm dectecting "meh". Which is what I think about it too.

If your going to try this game, I'd suggest also trying Planetside 2.

Could have fooled me, with phrases like "complete garbage, epic fail, and random shit shooter" being bandied about (some by people who haven't tried it...)!

However, the comparison to PlanetSide 2, though often presented, is COMPLETELY off the mark. The open world MMO-ness of Firefall is entirely cooperative, whereas the PVP aspect takes place exclusively through e-sports style matches in smaller, instanced arenas.

They do have plans for open world PVP that will presumably include some sort of territory disputing, but I doubt it will be on the scale of PS2. Probably more like GW2, where there's a specific fenced-off battleground area. I could be wrong, though, as it's still anyone's guess until Red 5 talks in more detail about it. The implementation and grander purpose of Armies (the Firefall equivalent of guilds), is still a mystery AFAIK, though their interactions will likely be the central theme of open world PVP.
