Was anyone else disappointed with the execution of Planetside 2?

Like, the concepts are there, the mechanics are there, but it just didn't work... It's like, and I know this is overused, but the people.

If everyone actually tried to act like a large force, not just a bunch of hyper ants, things would be a lot better.

Oh and the spawn killing/camping... -_-

I'm told it's a lot better once you're in a good company.

Don't even agree with the mechanics. The game is absolutely terrible to play on every level. I loved C&C Renegade, which is the game I thought when I saw "MMO multiplayer FPS" with bases and vehicles. Awesome in concept? Sure. But execution is garbage, the gameplay far worse than other modern FPS which I already have massive hate for.

I never played or followed Planetside 1 or even knew it existed back then, but really, what is there, at all, that is fun in Planetside 2, besides being in a clan and feeling like a part of something in a big group? Anything in big, organized group has some charm to it because of it, but there is absolutely nothing I find enjoyable in that game, from shooting, to driving, to flying (OH GOD FLYING), to how much time I waste doing nothing and when I'm doing something, how meaningless it ever felt.

I'm sorry, I just hate that game. I absolutely, totally loathe it, and I did not even talk about the F2P crap & unlockables that takes forever, which I just CANNOT stand. I genuinely think its the worst FPS of the century, and I really wished it was any good.

It's good if you get a good platoon going.

I used to frequently to take a single platoon and change the map from 15% for us to 70-80% for us.

That's a bit harder now that they've merged some servers but still doable.

Had it not been free to play I think it would have been far better.
