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!





ONE TEAM ONE FIGHT


PlanetSide 2 is a supported game in our Battle Division and offers all BWC members a great opportunity for quality gaming, team building and event participation. Featuring tactical variety, fun and engaging gameplay mixed with competitive elements, PS2 espouses the “One Team, One Fight” ethos that BWC centers itself upon perfectly.

The Vanguard Approves Testing


Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege shows no signs of slowing down, with three more seasons still to come which will include six additional operators and two new maps. The title has truly arrived as of 2018. In other Siege news, The Vanguard has officially accepted Rainbow Six into testing as of January 10, 2018. We have seen an increase in [BWC] members hosting operations late in the evening, having multiple teams playing concurrently. Being a title set tightly around its learning curve, good communication, and good knowledge of the map and operators at hand, a community presence such as Black Widow Company with the “One Team, One Fight” mindset can help improve the skills of everyone. The arrival of Siege to Vanguard testing was highly anticipated, with Phalanx writing, “It brings me great pleasure to tell you that Rainbow Six: Siege is the latest game being tested within The Vanguard.” Phwoarr will be taking the mantle of Game Champion, leading the members in operations and being mentored by the Vanguard team.


If you haven't already tried Rainbow Six: Siege, the free weekend is February 15th-18th,
and “Avenging7Folds” is hosting an operation on Friday, February 16th open to everyone.
Keep an eye out for more operations and give one a shot.


History

Just over two years ago, Ubisoft released the hit FPS Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege, and the title has shown no signs of slowing down any time soon. It was only two months ago, after all, that the game achieved a whopping 100,000+ concurrent players, an achievement the title did not come anywhere near in its first two years. As we enter Season One of Siege in 2018, it remains the 4th most played game on Steam, and Ubisoft is rewarding us this month with the launch of Operation Chimera. The operation will see new operators, a brand-new, limited-time gamemode, and a healthy amount of seasonal cosmetic items. Ubisoft is also giving the players who have not tried Rainbow Six: Siege a chance to try it out for themselves. The free weekend begins on February 15 and runs until February 18, and will include access to the full game, including all maps, modes, and Operators, so if any of you do not have a date on the weekend of Valentine's, we in the [USG] Rainbow Six: Siege department would love to have you!


Let us take a closer look at what Operation Chimera offers to the players:


The New Operators:
The new operators are part of a newly formed CBRN (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear) Threat Unit. They will be playable both in multiplayer and the limited-time cooperative gamemode, Outbreak. There will be two operators, one French and one Russian, named Lion and Finka. The French operator, Lion, uses a drone to maintain the perimeter in quarantined areas. The Russian Operator, Finka, employs "self-dissolving nanobots.” More information will be revealed during the Six Invitational, which will run February 13-18.

The New Game mode:
Lion and Finka will join Smoke, Ying, Buck, Kapkan, Ash, Doc, Tachanka, Glaz, and Recruit in the town of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, which has fallen prey to an “extraterrestrial parasite called the Apex,” delivered to our neighborhood courtesy of an old Soviet space capsule. Only these operators will be playable in Outbreak. Alien organisms have transformed the population into ‘horrific creatures’ spread across five unique archetypes, each with its own unique abilities. In response, the government has cordoned the town and issued orders for a team of three Operators to go in and clean house. The Outbreak event will launch to coincide with Operation Chimera.

The New Maps:
The new mode will also have three exclusive maps, which will be much larger and open than the competitive maps because they are designed specifically for co-op play.

Exclusive Seasonal Content:
Within the duration of the 4 weeks event, an exclusive collection of cutting edge cosmetic will be available. The Outbreak Collection contains 50 cosmetic items ranging from Rare to Legendary quality. The items include weapons skins, headgear, BDUs, charms and a unique Elite skin. They are found in Outbreak Packs, which each contain one item. The packs will be available for 300 R6 Credits each ($2.50), with Ubisoft promising that “no duplicated will be dropped.”
