    Working fine for me, can't play until Saturday though since I'm on a rubbish laptop just now, but I'm downloading it to get my name registered.

    Myself and the others in ZiiP have gone with Terran Republic on the Woodman server. Been having some monumental fights of the Mani Bio Dome.

    Heavy Assault all the way :D

    Cool. Might have to join you then, have you got any open squads for non ZiiPers?. PS was a lot better when you find a decent group to play with.

    Can't remember what I've set up, only that one char is "TobyTheFish" and another is "WillyTonker"

    Anyway, my brief take on the factions are TR: sprayer delight, NC: don't matter if you can aim, VS: FF. But I don't know what I'm doing, that's not to say I don't understand what to do. It's the long term view, I've not established, as yet what I want to invest in yet (certs and smedbucks).

    And to poke fun at myself (for those with decent memory), can't wait for the player stats site to be up and running.

    Holy crap but there is an insane amount of lag on Esimir Continent on the Woodman server this evening. Everyone was glitching all over the place, almost impossible to land a hit. Taking a break whilst it settles down.

    Fibre, I'll send you invites whenever I see you on dude. Pop over to the website and say hello if you ever want to join us.

    What do you mean by FF?

    I've been playing an infiltrator on VS almost exclusively and i have to say i love it. Nothing like sneaking around invisible then popping out for a quick HS then going sneakysneak again. I've had no connection problems or lag issues yet (on NA server though) and I've been playing for about 13 hours. No screaming Cod kiddies yet either, been pretty class, impressed:thumb:

    Join a squad. Stick with said squad. Perform your class role. Shoot everything you see that is not your teams Colour. If your guys are blue, shoot all the purple and red guys. If you're red, shoot purple and blue people. If you're purple, shoot the red and blue people.

    Follow the hoardes towards capture points and earn stuff, then get back to shooting everything.

    I love playing as heavy assault :D

    Soooo

    Anyone else with a top end gaming rig getting silly low framerates. I'm talking an i7 +7970 and not being able to go above 40fps no matter what settings I use.

    I was really hoping they would have worked this stuff out from the beta.

    Also the crashing. So. Much. Crashing.

    I'm getting silly lag, flashing screen sometimes (skybox, fog and names render, nothing else). Lots of people reporting that problem and those you describe, have Facebooked PS2 and they've acknowledged and passed to design team.

    Still, when it works it's freekin awesome.

    Man, just purchased the DLC for BF3 and now want to jump on this.

    Is it alright if I jump on with the ZiiP lot as you guys provided a fun atmosphere on BF3.
