What's the point of this when Planetside 2 has already CONFIRMED it will be 1000 vs. 1000 on any given battlefield.

Not too mention a much better game with vehicles and interactive forts.

Think though, this is a free game. How do you beat that? I'm interested to see what the weapons and gameplay will look like.

Planetside 2 is free to play

Fingers crossed for getting into that Planetside 2 beta...

Plus, player counts don't make it fun; if any thing, they make it chaotic and disorganized. 1000 players REQUIRES a strategic chain of command to be present. There has to be a few "general" types with a top down view of the action giving the orders to squads, with penalties for disobedience (you know, like a real military). Otherwise it'll become "let's all go to the middle and throw grenades!"

I take it that you have never played Planetside 1.

Even with BF3 and it's modded 128 player maps that have a high level of chaos but coordination and team work is the same as 64 player but just more chaos and no periods of not shooting.

identify target priority such as armor or forts (Planetside), destroy them, check your flanks, protect your assets, push the enemy back, and gain resources.

different load-outs and soldier classes will determine what your team needs to do to be successful.

you don't need some clown barking orders cause everyone has a map gets sitrep info......unless your playing Nuclear Dawn!!

It would be fun to play that.

cool idea, i always wanted a game where 2 massive armies charge each other. but unfortunately, planetside 2 is right around the corner. Also they say the current record holder is mag with 256? Planetside 1?

Planetside had the ability to support 1000 players, apparently. I don't think matches that large occurred more than a handful of times, though.
