PlanetSide 2: Showcase, the Second
Vying to take squad team play to the next level and to give you the ultimate feel that you are a small, expendable yet somewhat important asset in a major struggle, PlanetSide 2 has been trying to reward coordination, tactics and mutual assistance. Indeed, a highly coordinated taskforce is often able to take their objective and more. Yet, in a world where MMS made us feel like an unstoppable one-man army, old habits die hard. Thus, to combat the disappointment that comes out of lone wolfing around the battlefield of PlanetSide 2, the developers have launched a showcase of successful units that preform above and beyond the call of duty. Yes, that phrasing was intentional.
Mutually beneficial to both the clan as a means of publicity and the developer to educate the newcomers that the fun lays in teamwork and not in singlehanded actions, the second of hopefully many more outfits has found its showcase. After the Black Widow Company, a VS unit named the Azure Twilight is on display this time around. Enjoy some of their footage and tell us what you think about this marketing ploy.
