Morning Q&As

  • PlanetSide
    HomeLAN Fed's PlanetSide Update Q&A talks with SOE's Dave Georgeson about plans to update the MMO shooter: "We've changed PlanetSide...a lot...since its original launch and things are about to get even wilder with all the new major features that are hitting in the next couple of months. It's a great time to be a part of the world's only real MMOFPS!"
  • Guild Wars
    The Guild Wars Interview on Guild Wars OGaming Part Deux continues their conversation about ArenaNet's upcoming MMORPG: "As you play the game items will become more specialized. We want items to have a story behind their existence. Therefore if you find a certain weapon you will know that it came from that mission or from this quest. There will also be a lot of customizations that you will be able to do to your weapons."
  • A Vampyre Story
    HomeLAN Fed's A Vampyre Story Q&A hunts down Mike Kirchoff of Autumn Moon to learn more about the upcoming vampire game being crafted by some former LucasArts employees.

what i ment is if your team/clan/outfit whatever takes over a certain peice of land, do you get any benefits from this? how hard is it to getback/defend?

Every Base has a job now - Tech plants give access to tanks, etc... So holding onto bases is crucial to win the contanent. In the course of a content battle sides will often launch special assault missions to take out the generators on certain bases so that the enemy loses the benefit of the base while the gen is down.

Difficulty is all dependent on how many are on either side at the specific point e.g. if 100 people are defending a tower its going to be a lot harder to take than if 20 are.

also does the area change visually? not just flag colors.

No dynamic changes to the maps. Its not possible with today’s machinery with the amount of players involved.

As for the Lag that existed back in the early days yup completely gone. As I said there really isn't any problem’s now with this game it is astounding what a good job they have done in a year. Just glad I re-found it 2 months ago as enjoyed it every week since.
