This morning I got up and found everything ready to go.
Unable to resist, I clicked “PLAY” and entered the game. I quickly chose a server, chose a faction (Terran Republic), did my customization (picked a face), chose a fit (light assault), then got quickly into the game to see what I could see.
And I ended up dead on the ground within 10 seconds because the spawn point was camped.
Since that was pretty much my first experience in the original PlanetSide, I would have to say “working as designed.”
Anyway, I had to get to work, so I scrawled this out and went on my way.
I will have to give it another try over the Thanksgiving holiday. Plenty of time to play then, and plenty of reasons not to leave the house as well.
Provided I can get back on.
Our login server is working again. It's taking a beating like you wouldn't believe.—
