You’ll be able to ask the developers questions, play PlanetSide 2 with them and have a chance to win some prizes like…A bundle of PlanetSide 2 swag, NVidia graphics card and a grand prize of a PlayStation 4!

    II just got the email and was about to copy & paste here, you beat me to it!

    Sadly, Wednesday's and weekends im away so I just get 2 days xp bonus :(

    So, if you lads have the " Hyper Boost " this will be the perfect time to use it when it starts :rolleyes:

    Burned up all my boosts... wasted them tbh as I rarely played when activating them.

    Need another Heroic boost pack to come out, hopefully SOE will see sense and allow me to pad their pockets a bit more. If not ill get one of those 7 day gigs from the store for 500 SC.

    Its a shame you havent any, its also a shame about the 6 month boost, lots are asking for it, maybe when the game has Hossin up they might sell it to keep players interested? SOE had a sale on a week ago with 50% boosts for 250 sc I think they were

    Well just before my Alpha boost ran out they had another sale and made it look like they were selling the same boost again, but on closer inspection it did not have the resource boost and was just a flat 50% exp boost for the same price. I doubt they will sell another 50% exp boost + resource boost combined, and that will be the only 6 month boost that I will buy.

    Looks like they were listening to you. $40.00 is a lot for a gold striker and some cammos but you do get 50%exp and resources. Cant see many people buying this to be honest. It is just to steep a price unless you don't have many of the guns.

    It's only 50% XP boost, there's no resource boost. The camo is just the Alpha Squad camo in black...not worth it imo.

    What's the deal with the Striker AE? Is it just a paintjob or does it's stats differ from the regular Striker?

    I think the rocket launcher are merely copies of the originals with some gold trim added.

    Lumifiber RPG's, bunch of weapons, some limited edition Camo, and headshot decals... It's tempting, but 5bucks 2 much for me.

    Very good selection of weapons though, arguably some of the best option in their respective categories. Most of us probably already have several of them though, if not all.

    Yeah if you don;t currently have any of those weapons and you play the factions enough to use them, then it's probably a good deal. However I dont play NC or VS at all so would be pointless for me :) Plus I don't give a toss about decals :dead:

    Bagged myself a rum decal and a cola decal.

    The secret trick to getting the keys from twitch chat: Use an IRC client to connect to Twitch's IRC server. As soon as I tried doing that instead of using the chat in the browser, I got both keys on first try... :D

    My only guess is that they're really using IRC in the backend, and there's some crazy delay from when the message actually comes out and from when your browser gets it.

    Being able to ignore everyone except the planetside2 user also helps to make it much easier to quickly copypaste the keys :D
