What a difference watching tutorial videos makes! smile  I spent some time watching videos explaining the map and more importantly how to choose your spawn points and redeploy. Also, I spent some time in game without joining any squads and just walked around the warp gate. I noticed that the galaxy transports spawn outside on the ground. So, with that I insta-joined a squad.

A good squad leader also makes a hell of a difference. My first time out our squad leader did not talk much except to say things like "come on bravo squad, we need to get to our galaxies." And on our first game the platoon leader did not talk at all. The squad leader from my first game also made disparaging remarks like "just take off in our galaxy. Leave the retards behind." Way to build morale for the new guys, dude!

This second go-around was much different. The platoon leader would give all of us the name of the objective and how we were going to get there. Then my squad leader would clarify that for our squad AS WELL AS throw out squad spawn beacons. So much easier to figure out where the hell to go. I managed to get in on a platoon sized galaxy drop on a Vanu-held tech facility. We held it and converted it to NC. I was playing a combat medic and generally staying inside our objective, only straying out to revive dead guys. I guess my squad leader liked me enough to invite me to their outfit. So now I'm part of Phoenix Battalion smile.

Been playing this exclusively for a while now. I really wish there was a way to see:

1. on the squad/platoons page, what continent each platoon is fighting on. That way I can switch to the continent before joining that platoon.

2. Related to that I wish the "press insert to be deployed near your squad" button included continent switching - such as if the squad is on a different continent from your current one.

Ugh... this game has been a complete bitch to get up and running. I'm still trying to get it to install correctly.

Anyways, Titanfall made me want to play this. Anyone still playing?

I haven't played regularly for months, but when I was playing it was all the time. 

They still have a decent number of players judging just from the Steam stats, and since you can still play through the old launcher not on Steam I imagine totals may be double that. 

I think once they finally get this ready and launched on the PS4 there will be another huge influx of players.

Any idea when that's supposed to be? I wanna play this on ps4 badly.

They haven't really said anything on the matter that I've heard, and it's not on their public roadmap

I assumed it would be coming soon now that they are done with their focus on performance patches, but there may be some other reason more tied to marketing, promotion, etc that they are holding it back.

This is one of my favorite games becaues there are 3 huge maps and more than a thousand players in each server and it is an all out battle for territory, if you have it by any chance message me so we can play sometime.

I guess they're finally ready to start advertising the PS4 version as "coming soon".  Here's a trailer.  I'm sure we'll hear more next week at E3.
