Sounds good!

I have a 7 day squad boost so whoever is in gets 3% on top of the double exp weekend too - I bought one and got two of them so we have 14 days of it :D

I'm joining soon, I'm looking into the premium stuff or in-game cash. What what you recommend?

Waiting a while... from what I understand it expensive either way... SC or Premium... Premium is bit more cert speed and queue priority + $5 SC worth, and SC lets you buy cosmetics but at the moment the price is kind of ... riduculous (in the region of $5 for a camo pattern ?).

I would wait and see if SoE gets pressured into dropping the cert price (or speeding up the gain of certs) , SC price of items ($7 for a rifle attached to a single character on that account ), or offers better shit for the premium.
Sometimes keeping an eye on your stats is not a good thing :P

Some things are painfully obvious, others must be made obvious... painfully

Just a headsup for nvidia users. I installed the lastest Beta drivers 310.70 and the game is running really smooth.

Anyway regarding performance. This trick has been around for a while, perhaps it can help you:

http://www.coderbag.com/Programming-C/D ... ng-Utility

What is Core Parking? - Core Parking is a power saving feature, which stops some of your cores running.
Have you ever wondered why only your physical cores only run in games, and the HT threads are Parked? This is due to a power saving feature.

Main gain - Hyper Threading CPU's like the i5 and i7's

Another tip:
Code: Select all
Open:
C:\Steam\steamapps\common\PlanetSide 2\UserOptions.ini

Find:
"RenderDistance=VALUE"

Change to:
"RenderDistance=1500" (or 500-1500 depending on preference, higher is more is rendered)

Save and close

Also the new beta drivers for Nvidia made my game run gorgeous last night, no lag or any hiccups.

Since 1988. (You were not born in 87 like me right? I'm a year ahead of you)


----------------------------

Also I think we should look into what people are doing with some certs too, sure it is your game but when we play in the groups we do usually, Monk for example when he is on invested in Squad thing to help out which works, I've kitted up my Engineer and I think Seven said he did his medic up?

I've certed into my fighter a fair bit, but I've got the deployable sundy too. I've got no problem focussing on a class for a while if we need one but I've thrown a few certs into my HA as it's primarily what I play/enjoy the most. I do tend to try and round out my characters evenly though so i'll work off everyone else :)
This is my sandvich. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My sandvich is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my sandvich is useless. Without my sandvich, I am useless. I must eat my sandvich true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. Before lunch I swear this creed: my sandvich and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but sandvich. Om nom.

Im up to 20 certs... yay... in heavy.

I still do not know what I want to go for. What class are we lacking the most at the moment, I do like all of the classes so i'm not too bothered what I go with.

Your flying is great Monk :D

Dauntless go with what you like. I have boosts on and going as Engineer gives me 100-200 certs an hour just faffing around throwing ammo down and repairing. Though I think it is bugged because each time someone uses my ammo I get 67 exp and 1 cert =\

hmmm... engineer might be a good way to get to grips with the game then, quick leveling, quick certs, quick learning curve.

I do like classes like that and medics, helpful classes. It then masks my complete lack of any aim lol

I think usually we swap around some medics when we have a big group of us so that helps - or heavy/max to take on tanks/aircraft. Most of us unlock the squad leader thing to drop a beacon and swap leader around whilst its on cooldown and upgraded a sunderer so we can deploy it for another spawn too - I THINK that is either 50 or 80 certs in total for both of those. Squad one is 30 but not sure if the vehicle one is 30 or 50.

New patch is live since yesterday. No optimization yet but a lot of changes to balance things out:
