I did what sand suggested above, it took a few tries and for them to scramble the keys a bit but i eventually got in.

Ya, as much as I hate some of the gear for the TR side (armor mainly), I love the TR philosophy and background.
Vanu Sovereignty can be the technophiles if they want.
New Conglomerate can be the freedom fighters.
Harsh Oppressive government seeking enforced group conformity with a creed of "Death before Dishonor"....ya, Terran Republic is for me.

Been a VS loyalist since PS1, played for 2 years. And will still be a Barny in PS2.
Technology makes right.

Will need to see how both sides handle in PS2 before I choose, but I was also a VS. Had my flak days, but for some reason I enjoyed infiltrating and vibro-knifing bitches

The freaking Burster was my second love, right after the VS. I'm sorry, but fuck weapon systems that 1) tell the enemy you're going to be firing at them eventually, and 2) that you don't aim.

So I bought the original Planetside and made a SOE account and all that but I never actually played it because my computer at the time couldn't run it. I logged in and every texture was white ¬_¬
Do you think I'll still be eligible for a beta key as a PS1 player?

I heard (on a dev interview) that the closed beta will only be a few weeks (for hype and to check the servers work I guess), then it's beta for all.

Usually open beta for a F2P game is the same as release. I sure hope that's the case here.

they're back handing keys out via DM on twitter, you have to follow their account and ask nicely (@planetside2) but they appear to be sending out quite a few :P

I've got one account that has prior PS time and one that has a key from Twitter but no prior time. We'll see which one gets activated first.
I still don't know what faction I want to play. I want Terran for the backstory BS, NC for the general feel and weaponry themes, and VS for the Scythe (which I'll probably spend the most time in.) Dunno, I'll have to try them out and see if I can tolerate the VS's weak-ass looking weapons.

Also: x because PS2 looks better than Dust.

Kinda pumped for this, might even resubscribe to ps1 just to relieve myself of the rose-tinted glasses nostalgy. Bad idea/terribad idea? How are the server populations, if anyone still plays it?
June 10 2012, 01:42:24 PM
i registered to twitter just to get a fucking key, but no luck...dont even know how twitter works lol

they seem to hand out keys from about 2pm GMT to 8am GMT (i think they're pacific time mostly so it makes sense). If you're fast at the copypasting you can probably get a public key if you follow the steps earlier in the thread as well
anyhow, when does the beta come out already, it feels like it's been a month
