Tell, you play with Ragequit? They're probably the only other outfit than AT that actually does anything.
I'm in AT on mattherson too.

NC and TR for noobs.
Vanu for pros.

The NC have as a faction advantage higher damage. Their guns do the most damage per bullet but fire slower. Their faction-specific weapons are shotguns and guided missiles, making them very good in close quarters situations.

The TR have larger magazines and higher fire rates, making their guns better for spray and pray, or even allowing a better player to get one or two more kills out of every mag, though their bullets are weaker in comparison. Their faction-specific guns are miniguns and fast-firing rocket launchers / tanks.

The VS have zero bullet drop on most of their guns, which gives them basically no advantage over the other two because bullet drop is insignificant at the ranges infantry combat takes place. To make up for this "advantage", their weapons have a higher damage drop-off rate ( you lose more damage the further out your rounds go ).
Their faction-specific weapons are spammy plasma projectile weapons that do nice light shows and might scare the enemy but in face-to-face simply don't compare. They also have anti-vehicle particle beam-ish weapons that for some reason are completely ineffective when used on infantry.





Then again, depending on what server you join... Mattherson Vanu have the best and most tactical outfits (RGQT and Azure Twilight) while the TR and NC only have unorganized outfits that rely on only numbers to accomplish anything.

No, they all have the same vehicles for the most part, but NC's 'uniques' arguably have the best aesthetics. Vanu is more of a Covenant sharkey look that isn't all that endearing and TR's MBT looks like someone slapped it together at the last possible second (although the mosquito is the best looking of all the aircraft).

Most vehicles are the same for all factions, being NS ( nanite systems ) multi-faction things.
The only vehicles that change are Main Battle Tanks and Empire-Specific Fighters
The NC probably have the most normal look, their Vanguard MBT looks like a regular modern tank, and the Reaver looks like a sensible aircraft.

The TR's MBT, the Prowler, is squareish and I find it rather unpleasant to the eye, their ESF also looks quite frail.

The VS's Magrider is pretty neat and unique, the Scythe could be better but it's pretty sweet as well.

I guess if looks is all that matters to you, create a character of each faction, go in the Virtual Reality training room ( which you access from the continent terminal ) and go check out the vehicles, the customizations, the weapons. You have access to everything in VR.

Yeah, the server doesn't exist at all... PS2 it is for me, or everyone should get EUROPA UNIVERSALIS IV. It is 25% off. I have it, Tiel has it, buy it now.

Yep, my laptop actually runs PS2, much good.

Made a NC character but I'm not going to be able to do actual playing until I get a mouse.

Wrong faction.

Huh? I play Terran Republic, or is that not what you said.
Uh? Gauss SAW is the NC heavy assault weapon. TR heavies start with the Carv.

Starting to get into this, ultra settings run surprisingly well, and I captured two facility all by myself within 10 minutes. Don't mind the fact I was the only person for miles, still counts.

That's called 'ghost capping', and no, it doesn't.

I meant SAW in the technical sense, not the name, sorry. They're both Sqaud Automatic Weapons.
