PlanetSide 2 Beta Signups

The PlanetSide 2 Website has re-launched as home to SOE's upcoming MMO shooter sequel (thanks PlanetSide Universe). The site includes signups to beta test the game, and there's a FAQ with word on testing:
Yes. We will ensure that PlanetSide players will be among the first in. Sign up to receive our email updates and like us on Facebook to be in the know. Also, if you played awhile ago it would be a good idea to make sure that your Station Account has your most recent email address. Go to www.soe.com and click My Account.

I had fun with the Planetside beta, they didn't have any population caps in areas and you could cloak and hack the enemy mobile spawn vehicle.

I loved hacking things from under the enemy's nose but they nerfed the cloaking/hacking right before release so I never even bothered with playing it at retail.

I really don't see how they nerfed cloaking and hacking. I spent half my Planetside career hacking enemy tanks/Reavers and driving off with them.

I am going to team kill and grief like a MF in the beta. Nothing like loading a ship up of team mates and flying them into obivion.

And blowing up our own ships.....and when they complain I tell them I am 5 years old...

ahhhh......just like old times....

I just vaguely remember people getting all upset about not being able to see cloaked hackers, thought they did something to make them visible even while cloaked - maybe. It's been too long.

The only thing they did was make it so if you sprinted you could see a faint outline of the person. As long as you stayed crouch or took your time you'd still stay invisible.
The best was Hacking a Vanguard while the driver repaired it, watching the gunner get kicked out, jumping in the gun and shelling them both in the face.

IIRC you gave off some light/sound when hacking, so if you hack a vehicle whilst infantry are around then it's riskier - i.e. the mobile spawn vehicles

This game reminds me of the old Tribes games. Looking forward to giving this a shot. Looks like a lot of fun.

The only trade off is this : Monthly subscription! Don't get me wrong, a $5-$7 per month is acceptable, but a $15 for a 0% yes 0% story is just too much! You can't compare MMO-RPG with this game, the amount of data, quests,text...etc is enormous! Planetside has nothing!

Just lower the monthly fee subscription by at least 50% of any normal MMORPG and you got yourself a good committed people.

To be honest, with BF3 around this game might not appeal to many specially since Planetside 1, ended up with bad addon! They lack fiction scenarios.
