Planetside 2 Players, how would you like a few hundred to a thousand free cert points? Now, I know a significant number of people have asked (demanded) that the certification cost be reduced on a number of items. Having some experience as the CEO of a small company myself, however, I'm not so arrogant as to demand SOE change its business model. Instead, I propose the following change to the way weapon attachments are handled: Allow weapon attachments to be unlocked in a scripted sequence as a reward for reaching a certain number of kills with each weapon, rather than through cert points. Example: 15 kills = Scope #1; 45 kills = Scope #2; 75 kills = Rail #1; 100 kills = Scope #3; etc. This shouldn't impact SOE's business model because you can't use Station Cash to unlock weapon attachments anyways. The sad truth at the moment is the hardcore players only bother certing the couple upgrades that best complement the gun/their playstyle, while the casual players waste a lot of time & effort certing upgrades they don't particularly like or enjoy. Each little unlock is pretty inconsequential on its own, but psychologically should be like a drug fix for most players. Only 30 kills 'til the next unlock? I'll just keep playing a little longer... These semi-frequent mini-rewards would help tide people over and maintain their interest between the larger, 1000 cert -type rewards, as well. As a completionist myself, the fact that you show a 'percentage complete' bar for every class and weapon is both a blessing and a curse. It could become an addiction to watch those bars progress to 100%, but with Cert prices so high and with so many things to spend them on, the sad truth is I know I'll never reach 100% on anything because there's no point wasting certs on weapon attachments I know I'm never going to use. That's dispiriting more than encouraging. What to do with the players that have already bought weapon attachments? Well, refund them their cert points, of course. Depending on how many certs they've spent on attachments, that could be a pretty big present waiting for them after the server reboot... Merry Christmas, everyone!
