Outfit Wars in PlanetSide 2 are about to start, and no, they’re regrettably not about fashion but about guilds (aka Outfits) fighting one another to see which one is the best. As of today, May 8th, at 2:00 p.m. local server time depending on what server you play on, the battle begins.
Phase one begins today, as mentioned, and after that phases two and three will begin on Saturday, May 9th, and Sunday, May 10th, respectively. Every phase will run between 2:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. local server time, while the finals will take place on Saturday, May 16th.
This round of Outfit Wars has made some adjustments to scoring, Instead of gaining a static value by capturing a base or owning it as resources accumulate, Outfits earn the combined totals of the top-10 eligible Outfit mates who contribute to a base capture or defense. Additionally, Outfits can now earn up to 250 OW points per each capture, up to 100 OW points for a successful defense, and can earn 1000 OW points for spawning a Bastion and 100 OW points for contributing to the destruction of an enemy Bastion weak point.
As for the PC version of the game itself divorced from anything Outfit Wars-related, it received a minor bug fix patch recently. There was also supposed to be some new Russian and Chinese translations, but those reportedly need another pass after community feedback from last weekend.
