TLN’s Planetside 2- Factions
Hey TLN, with the release of the next wave of Planetside 2 beta keys. We wanted to answer a few questions about the factions in PS2 and where TLN will run. As noted in the last Planetside 2 news post here on the TLN website. We asked all the TLN members to vote on which faction TLN should roll in when the closed beta came out. The overwhelming choice was NC-New Conglomerate. Here is the link to the faction choice poll previously posted. You can still vote if you like. http://talonstrikeforce.net/2015/01/planetside-2-beta-faction-poll/
Many people have asked me about this. As a Community Talon Strike Force has not yet chosen a faction for PS2 yet and we will hold off on making a final decision until more TLN members have played the beta. We want to keep an open mind and we want to make sure we choose a faction that all TLN members will enjoy. The way PS2 is designed a community such as ours can really make a difference. But only if we all stick together as one team. As I’ve stated before, I would really like to give each faction a try before the game releases. This way going into the live game when it launches TLN will be ready to make our final choice on which faction TLN will roll in PS2.
We have learned lessons from previous titles where faction choice can make a huge difference in how the game plays for our members. We all loved Raven in MAG but I am sure almost everyone in TLN who played MAG will admit. The factions in MAG were slightly unbalanced. Which we all know led to serious frustrations. We want to be careful in making this faction selection because as a team we all want to be on the faction we like the most. As noted in prior posts, there are many differences, advantages and disadvantages dependent on which faction you choose..
Finally, for those lucky enough to have received a beta key in this wave or the previous beta key release. We will look to group up in Planetside 2 during times when the servers are up. Remember at this point the PS2 servers are not open 24/7. As CFD and I are just now getting into the beta, we will ask that TLN Officers Boomer2_6 and Postmanclark to take the lead.. Just so you know Boomer, Postman and a few other TLN have been in the beta since the 1st wave of beta keys were release. It is best to let those guys set up the squads and to set where and what we’ll be doing during our group ups. Make sure you add them to your friends list to assure you can get grouped up with TLN. We will make new squads as more and more people come online in this title.
Last note: Once this game launches and if TLN decides to remain committed to this title. We will reorganize the TLN officer core to suit this title. Meaning that we will hold nominations and votes on key officer roles for Planetside 2. There will be many community positions open for TLN members to become part of the team and to help with the growth of Talon Strike Force in Planetside 2.
If you questions, comments or suggestions on this topic or anything to do with Planetside 2 and the factions, make your posts here. Let’s get this discussion rolling. If you think TLN should look to roll in a faction you like. Tell us which faction and why you think its best. Also, as this is a new title for PS4 we would love to hear feedback on the PS2 title itself and how TLN should look to roll in this game.
