It's been a long time since I've played Planetside but as I've slid into my WoW retirement, I find I'm missing it. Why? * PVP only * It had no character levels, only player XP and in just a few hours of play you could gain plenty of XP to be a strong component of your faction's efforts to conquer the world. The more XP means the more variety of combat rolls you could play. * No player levels= no being left behind. I'm speaking of your friends out leveling you and getting out of synch with questing. There are no quests only control of territory. This is the absolute best situation for a casual player. I played two nights a week for about 6 hours total. I could jump in and be an integral part of my team. * Absolute best vehicle combat and I loved the Vanguard, 2 player tank. Trajectory shells. One person drives, other person shoots big gun. I played it for 1.5 years before burning out. That is as long as I've played any game in one stretch. Kind of wish I could go back. It's still going, but I don't know if it would be worth it at this point. Planetside Wiki article.
