The reason for this post is that,, I am going to start a Planetside 2 outfit. Now, I know that it may be a bit early to start this for most people, but I would like to be fully prepared before the game comes out. Planetside relies heavily on teamwork and I would like to get to know a core group of people before the game launches.
I currently co-lead a guild that plays several MMOS, but I am wanting to commit myself to Planetside 2 full time when it comes out.
We are a US based guild, but we have a few members in the UK. We will be playing on a US server as TR. Watch out Barney and Smurfs!
I am a fairly experience Planetside player. I have good knowledge of the game systems as well as successful strategies and tactics. I have held a leadership role in an NC outfit for a while now in the original Planetside. Most of their players have stopped playing the original game and are waiting for Planetside 2 to come out. I decided that I wanted to run my own outfit recently and am looking to get things going soon.
I am a very capable Planetside player, and am very comfortable leading troops into battle while providing successful strategy and tactics required to be successful.
Due to my experience in the original Planetside, I have an understanding of what makes a successful Planetside outfit. In my opinion, the best outfits follow a pseudo-millitaristic structure. Structured chain of command, proper planning, clear training, and precise tactical execution are very important. Coordination is key in Planetside, and I know how to acheive these things.
I plan to create an Outfit where all of these things are key to our success. Planetside provides a unique experience in the MMO world. A group of highly coordinated individuals can accomplish amazing things against overwhelming odds with the proper plan, training, and execution.
What I Am Looking For
I am looking for people who are excited about the Planetside 2 launch. Previous Planetside experience is not required, but I would like to find some Planetside vets to fill roles such as squad leaders and officer positons. Finding a few people with active Planetside subs would be great so we can get in game and play together.
I am reaching out to the MMORPG.com community first because I feel that there is a group of people craving a game like Planetside around here that are fed up with the current MMO scene. I think that many of you will find the unique game you are looking for within Planetside 2.
While We Wait - What To Do?
As you probably know, we have no idea when Planetside 2 is coming out. Those of us that are following the game closely strongly believe that the beta will start after E3. Even so, we have no idea when the game will launch.
So why should you join us now? What will we do until the game launches?
I am subscribed to Planetside still and play it off and on. If anyone that is interested in joining up still plays we can get together in there and get some practice/teamwork going. Tribes: Ascend is also a great team builder.
Otherwise, a friend of mine and I currently operate a guild that plays a few different games. We are currently very active in Tera (although I am not playing it) with around 200 members. The guild's name is Shadow's Hand (this won't be our Planetside name).
Personally I am currently maintaining subscriptions to WoW, SWTOR, and Planetside 1. We have members still playing those games (although not as many as we have in Tera).
A group of us will be playing Diablo 3 as well. I plan on playing that quite a bit.
We are also maintaining a presence in the Firefall beta, although the Army system in that game is currently broken.
Several of us play Tribes: Ascend, Minecraft, LoL, and Wurm Online as well.
So if you want to play any of these games to keep busy until Planetside comes out, you can play with us. I am also open to other games to play while we wait, especially F2P games.
If you are interested in joining our outfit, please register at:

(Shadow's Hand is the name of our guilds in RPG's. We are going to use Sierra Hotel in-game in Planetside 2 as it is more fitting to the setting)
