Frijoles you have to have an Agency to do Conquest. And someone in your Agency has to make a Strike Force, put a Drop ship in, load it up with Beacons. And you have to attack another Agency by bidding on a Hex they own..... It's an interesting Concept. But I prefer Planetsides persistant world to it. And would rather it be more like that, with an actual Armor and Air part to the game as well as the Ground combat.
As it stands the game is fun for Mercenary matches... It's a little bit of Team Fortress 2 with Tribes jetpacking and I find it more FUN than TF2 just because it seems a tiny bit more balanced since theres only 4 classes. I'll definitely continue to play it for the free portion. I do like the levels and skill trees and weapons, it allows your character to be a little more personalized than TF2 for sure.
The Conquest mode however, they will not get me to subscribe. I'll wait for a Planetside 2 thanks. (Hurry the F up SOE, you gave those of us still subscribing to Planetside a survey asking what we wanted in Planetside 2 and it's been months since we've heard anything, jerks.)
