See you there!

Got a priority beta access key. So I'm hoping to get in early.

From what I hear on the grapevine , I really don't think you are going to miss the start of beta Nechron .
Smed wants better lower spec performance and reliability before beta stage .

So it looks like an extendible extension if you know what I mean .

At least they are trying to get the core elements correct before beta ..... can't say that of many games companies (don't mention any companies please or thread will get deleted) .

A good thing about it is the lack of hype, like the one surrounding GW2 for example. Planetside 2 is basically Planetside (1) with better graphics, a new progression system and a few more new mechanics thrown in.
So I guess they don't feel as pressured to release fast. I've been in too many MMO betas to count, and I much prefer a well optimized and polished game over something rushed.

Jeez , I'm all alone in this thread !
Ah well , I'll carry on with the info as long as it isn't annoying people .

Another tweet from Smed :"Water between continents - seamlessly - this is really hard tech, but our goal is to make the whole planet seamless and allow water based vehicles.

So naval units will be in game too eventually .
That is amazing , fight on a map with 2000 players , gather together a platoon (30 or so) , get some big gunboat and sail (fight)across to the other cont with 2000 nutters on it !
