Richard Simpson: "Jumping in, you are faced with the choice of three different factions to pick from, each offering their own distinct advantages and disadvantages. If you want fast flying fighters and rapid fire weaponry then look at the Terran Republic. If packing a punch with Electromagnetic equipment is your bag, then sign up to the New Conglomerate. If the idea of using vehicles with massive amounts of manoeuvrability is your must have, then the Vanu Sovereignty is where you should set up camp. It is only by diving in and getting your paws mucky that you will learn what best works for you. The Terran Republic was my own favourite, though more hours on the clock might have changed my mind."
