Become a Planetside 2 Commander
Commanding all the troops isn't an easy task for the generals at SOE, which is why they have player commanders do must of the heavy lifting for them! Fortunately for them, they plan to hand more powers to their favourite commanders so that they can plan their own missions for the soldiers to be cannon fodder for!
So what SOE is planning to do is assign the ability to commander players (who have a high enough amount of cert points in-game) to allow them to create mini-hotspot missions around the map, which not only makes things more interesting and chaotic in some scenarios, but gives normal soldiers the chance to earn more XP with certain things which will encourage more players to participate in a ground assault in a marked area of interest.
SOE was kind enough to give some details of how the new system would work in bullet point form, missions are to look something like this:
• Air Strikes at location
-XP bonus to ground kills/assists while in aircraft at this location
-Greatly increased gunner XP bonus (for Lib Pilots)
-Greatly increased XP bonus for Sunderer kills
• Deployment to location
-Large XP increase to deploy-bonuses.
-Large XP increase to AMS spawn bonuses.
-XP bonus for repairs to any deployment vehicle (Galaxy & Sunderer)
-XP bonus to squad-deploy bonuses
-Increased weight on Instant-action values
So get ready commanders and soldiers! Suit up and deploy on the battlefield in August for a taste of some player made mission hot-spots for you to dive into! Are you soldiers ready for the fight?
