Pick based on favorite color or which faction's ideals you like more. Aside from the Vanu, NC and TR weapons are nearly identical since you can buy weapons for either faction that have the same properties as the other faction's weapons (fast firing-low damage, slower firing-high damage).

Thanks, I was a bit indecisive because I bought a bit of station cash to unlock a weapon or two (£5.00 not being too bad really) but turns out the store is completely broken. They haven't closed it down or made any kind of in-game announcement so the forums are full of hacked off kids.

First of all.... your post amounts to "I'm not having a problem therefore nothing's wrong".

Again.... WRONG GENERATION.   Stop peeing on my leg and then telling me it's raining, people.  I'm so happy all of you have tons of money to plonk down on brand new crap every chance you get but until there's a way for me to get a piece of that action, I'll be entitled to my opinion that the Game Engine's Code and handling of NON-GRAPHICAL data + Threading is the real problem ...Meanwhile the Devs/Programmers have even backed us up on those observations (don't make me dig that up too, b/c I will).   Otherwise how would you explain me getting the EXACT same frame rate in Zergy areas I normally get, that I also got when my game bugged out and every single Wall Texture in the game was invisible to me, causing me to have unintended visibility of every single player withing the nearest 1000 ft?  ....EXPLAIN THAT.

PS:  The Devs have also said they've like to introduce Non-Radial Culling priority to the game as well to help Snipers and Long-Range aircraft.  Again, they're AWARE of the problems as well as the unfair "Pay Intel to Win" status quo right now.

I don't know whether to pick NC or TR =s. Played all 3 factions, mainly as heavy assault. Should I choose based on the faction weapon trait differences and the exclusive vehicles?
A lot of people will try to tell you that NC is gimped by their weapon designs and while even the Devs seem to believe that, my Experience with NC has been that the weapons CAN be controlled well enough by firing slower or less often with "Burst Fire" if you have the skill and the smooth framerate for them.  The REAL problem comes from being pelted with n00b-friendly faster-ROF guns in that every single "Flinch" you recieve basically multiplies the amount of Spread-Penalty you already have regardless of how much damage it's actually doing to you and if your Spread/Recoil was already pretty high to begin with b/c you're NC, then it just becomes impossible to make your bullets go where your crosshair is supposed to be placing them. and the super short TTK in CQC means you lose those fights instantly.  This is why we often have to crutch really hard on the "MAX" in CQC as NC because unlike the other factions, our stock MAX has this SemiAutomatic 2-hit-kill Super-Shotgun that makes the other Factions QQ like little girly men.

I'm disappointed in the game, having been a big fan of Planetside 1 for years.  I was expecting something at least kinda similar to the first game.  When I saw all that they chucked out of the first game to make a sci-fi themed BF3, I was slightly disgusted.  Where's the nano truck?  The Lodestar? The NC's proper Jackhammer?  What the heck happened to the Reaver's look?  Why are the continents 'restored' instead of being the planets they were?  Better yet, why are only 3 of them available at once instead of all of them?

The only thing I do like about it is how they upgraded the Galaxy dropship and that they didn't include those horrible things known as BFRs.  I'm going to be avoiding PS2, and am waiting for when PS1 goes free-to-play.

I take great offense to that statement, since the direct Battlefield eqvivalent to Planetside was made before BF3, aka BF2142 (which beat the snot out of PS2 in terms of vehicles, mech walkers ftw). Know your BF series!

... gigantic Titans hovering above the battlefield in PS2 with drop-pods flying all over the place would have been awesome :(

Have you played PS1 at all?  lol  BFRs ARE giant mechs, and they've completely ruined the game!

Only because they gave a lot of power to single person as far as I understand (I did not play ps1). Make same thing but have driver and gunners and imho it would be fine.

If Guild War's WvWvW was anything like Planetside, it would probably kill WoW.

Yeah. I'm 100% into Ps2 now. WvW is a joke, it's always going to be a joke. The Gw2 engine can't handle massive gaming, and nothing they could do in WvW could come close to the epicness found in Ps2 combat.

Going to wait a lil while before I try this because all the people babbling about how great PS2 is now were doing the same about GW2 WVW few months back.

PS2 is dieing out already. You wish WvW to be more like Planetside2? realy? Same LoD problems (together with client side hit registration it's very "funny"), much worse performance (I think the memory leak is still there), absolutely NO metagame and devs who decided to have vocations when the game REALY needs some attention. What's worse: since the game is f2p most of the people who had bad expirience wont come back.
I was realy excited about PS2 until they rolled out their "meta" patch in late beta.
SOE is SOE.

This game is trully Epic!
Its not a single player game with poor gameplay and bad written dialogues with some other guys doing same stuff as you, sometimes stealing your objectives. :-)
Its a real MMO. Its trully Massive. So massive that it becomes fresh quality.

The game is quite good, developers knew what the wanted, and realized it.
The only drawback is that its really confusing if you jump fresh. There is no good tutorials, neither helps whats going on. At least for me it took time to get it.

Also playing it is kinda pointless without outfit (static group playing together) since otherwise its too chaotic.
And this is war, a single soldier is nobody without his squad.

Only thing that sucks about this game now is the fact its turned into hackfest, right now I can download easily 4 different hacks for free safely including one that has aim bot, gps, teleport, fly hack, wall hack, invisibility and some others....

Has completely ruined the game.

Just see youtube and you will see what I mean. Report them and they are still there weeks later... Even if they ban them , they don't care because they can just make a new account and hack again instantly with no consequence.

Also do not like the fact you can't go behind enemy lines anymore and take bases from anywhere on the map, now you have to fight where the game tell you to and if you try to take any other bases not next to your territory, it won't let you.

Completely destroys any guerrilla tactics, hit and run sneak attacks, or behind enemy lines incursions. Takes a whole play style away from the game and make it boring. Worst change they could of made.

Heading to the PS4

It's okay to enjoy crap if you're willing to admit it's crap.
Every patch is like ArenaNet walking out onto the stage of the International Don't Kitten Up Championship, and then proceeding to shiv itself in the stomach 30 times while screaming "IT'S FOR YOUR OWN GOOD! IT'S FOR YOUR OWN GOOD!"
