Decals & Booster

This Boosted Standing Item shows your Solaris Spirit and Boosts your Accolades by 5%! (Premium Time will also be upgraded to grant a 5% Accolades boost).



Warhorns

These 3 Solaris 7 Warhorns are truly unique. Taunt your enemy with VO lines, Folly FX and Crowd Cheers. These babies are Solaris 7 branded!

Solaris Overview

Seasonal Play



Climb the ranks as a Solaris pilot during the course of the season! Start as a lowly challenger in any of the 7 'Mech Divisions, and gain Patrons and corporate Sponsors as your fame grows. As your reputation increases with your success, you'll court the attraction of bigger and better endorsements.

Solo and Group



Claim fame as a lone wolf, or fight alongside a partner as you participate in 1v1 or 2v2 battles.

Track your progress and standings on the leaderboards for both Solo and Group Play.

Patrons and Sponsors


In each Division, sign a contract with a Patron to represent you as their fighter. The various Patrons provide different bonuses and rewards, so be sure to choose wisely!

As your fame as a Solaris Pilot grows, you will attract the attention of corporate Sponsors. These brands will pay you handsomely for your sponsorship, but be careful - if your popularity starts to drop, so will the interest of the Sponsors.

Earning the support of better Sponsors and Patrons will provide you with greater rewards and performance bonuses, helping you become the greatest pilot Solaris has ever seen!

Game Modes


1 vs 1, 2 vs 2, and 32 slots for spectators to witness your glory or defeat!

Maps


Solaris 7 is home to a number of arenas hosted by the Great Houses. Each arena presents its own challenges and pitfalls for pilots.

Boreal Reach: Using state-of-the-art holographic projection technology, this arena takes the form of a large tundra battleground.
The Factory: A re-purposed 'Mech factory, this arena is filled with plenty of opportunities to hide from - and ambush - your opponent.
Steiner Colosseum: Harkening back to the gladiatorial days of old, this massive colosseum will make Pilots feel like true warriors.
The Jungle: Seemingly a beautiful tropical oasis, this jungle arena is home to some of the fiercest Solaris battles.
Ishiyama Caves: A claustrophobic arena set inside the carved-out tunnels of a Kurita-constructed mountain. Tight battles abound in the Ishiyama Cave.

Bolt-ons and Mech Bay 2.0



Solaris is more than just killing your foes - it's about doing it in style. There's no better way to let your personality shine than to deck out your 'Mech with hundreds of cosmetic bolt-on items.

In the newly updated 'Mech Bay, you can get a whole new view of your 'Mechs using the 360 rotational cameras. Better yet, step directly into the 'Mech Bay and experience it on foot.

Planetside 2: The “Unstable Update”



Originally posted by “ps_nicto” here.

On February 8th, 2018 Planetside 2 saw a new PC update. The update includes the addition of Unstable Warpgates system, Kolytr VR, New Empire Specific Light-machine guns, adjustments to Vehicle Bases and Lattices and infantry, and vehicles. As well as several bug fixes and miscellaneous changes.

What are Unstable Warpgates?

“Newly opened continents will be put in an “unstable” state where the majority of territories will remain offline until population reaches a certain threshold. For the time being, Unstable continents will also automatically go online after two hours so that off-peak times of day still have an opportunity to rotate the continent.

While in an unstable state… HIVEs cannot be placed. Meltdown alerts cannot be triggered, meaning that the continent cannot be locked in this state.
Many regions become disconnected from the lattice and made uncapturable. Disabled regions can still be traversed, and the terminals remain hackable. A population of more than 96 players will cause the Warpgates to stabilize. These regions will also automatically stabilize after two-hours unstable. This functionality may change in the future.


The intent of this system is to… Increase fight density on off continents, or during off-peak hours. Mitigate the “free” Meltdown wins taking place on off continents. Give players in queue for main continents an alternative to waiting in VR zones.”



What is Kolytr VR?

The relatively abandoned beginner’s continent where players below Battle Rank 15 could learn how to play the game on has been repurposed. All players of all factions will have access to almost all equipment that can be tested across the continent in live-fire PvP - something the initial VR “continent” does not have.


99 players, 33 from each faction, can make use of the continent at one time.
No more than two instances of Kolytr VR can exist at one time.
Flashes, Sunderers, and Lightning are the only available ground vehicles.
Friendly Fire & EXP gain are disabled.




What are the new Empire Specific LMGs?

The VE-H Maw (Vanu), MGR-L1 Promise (NC), and our very own MG-H1 Watchman (TR) have been added to the game. Since BWC is a TR faction, I’ll speak in this article only to the Watchman. It has a 125-round magazine and fires up to 857 RPM. It excels in close-quarters combat and suppressive fire at mid-range. The Watchman is not a precise or accurate weapon.



Other notable changes: The MG-S1 jackal has been buffed. 350 RPM -> 400 RPM and 2.25 sec reload to 2 sec.
Lightning no longer has a breaking penalty on the Racer chassis.
The Galaxy now has a defensive “Lockon Jamming Field.”
The Galaxy’s proximity to repair air vehicles has increased from 50m to 75m.
The M60-A Bulldog has increased direct damage from a mere 250 to 400.
The Harasser is now, in most cases, killable in one tank shot.
MAX units may now flip vehicular capture points.



That’s all for now soldiers, remember - there’s no quit in a TR!
