A Change is Coming | Planetside 2 Content Update

Fun games to play on steamsteam all games price PLANETSIDE 2 no no you didnt miss click this is in fact a Kamikaze 78 video on PlanetSide 2. I get it the footage looks a little different this time around last time you guys saw a full length video from me that sported these kinds of graphic settings was about a year ago so what gives why are you seeing it now well gday there once again viewers your mate Kamikaze 78 tier and today were going to be discussing a change in direction were going to be test running here on the channel Music so yeah obviously the change were going to be talking about today is the graphic settings that we are running in PlanetSide right now I was honestly in two minds about making this video you know as I was typing up my DOT points for this one I was sort of asking myself you know does this video even need to exist its a video about my Graphics quality settings for Gods sake and I came to the eventual conclusion that yeah it does need to be made and theres a few reasons why over the years I have set a precedent quite vocally on my channel Graphics quality for the sake of video production quality is a Cornerstone of my content its something that Ive stood by time and time again and Ive always held that as a member who through all of your generous support is at the Forefront of the PlanetSide 2 Community representing this game at times I should make an effort to show the game off in its best light possible you know really put the best foot forward for the game to potential new viewers that included running the game in ultra settings making it look modern making it look good making it look like it wasnt made back in 1994. so with all of that in mind I feel like its worth talking about why such a significant change is coming and where its coming from and quite frankly guys its simple for me over the last few years PlanetSide has been about being the best player I can possibly be I will never be one of the best players in this game as far as my mental capacity and my physical ability with reflexes and stuff like that theres plenty of peeps in this community that can and will wipe the floor with me consistently and do so on a regular basis but I always strive to be the best that I can be you know set myself personal goals and personal benchmarks to beat every time you know after years of enjoying the game for its spectacle and back of the box moments if you will thats become less of a priority for me nowadays Ive seen everything possible that really made me go wow this is excellent you know Ive seen the giant piss off armor columns Ive seen the Bastion flea carrier battles Ive seen the orbital strikes Ive been a part of footzerbs Ive experienced all of those moments with those pretty Graphics enabled and to me they dont just have the same wow factor anymore so now I want the wow factor to be my personal performance its where my enjoyment comes from at the moment as Im sure youve seen over the last couple of years in particular my content has really been focused on celebrating that FPS component of this game you know this is an extension of that this is where my passion lies within the subset of PlanetSide 2. nowadays I feel like the ultra Graphics preset is actually limiting my ability to achieve my enjoyment of being the best player I can whether it comes from frame rate loss sluggish Mouse input that comes from higher end settings the general screen clutter that emerges from all the particle effects in high population fights where I lose targets and all the mess it all contributes to what can sometimes be a very frustrating experience when youre trying to perform at your your best and break your own personal records as a skilled player when streaming in particular the performance loss actually gets pretty Savage if youve tuned into my streams as of late you would have seen me change to the potato settings on a lot of occasions because quite simply its a much more player experience the load on my system of streaming and playing a already heavily cpu-bound game really does a number on my in-game performance and actually makes streaming this game far more frustrating than it has to be and the long and short of all that guys is that quite frankly I want to enjoy this game again the best I can and I feel like by catering my settings to allowing me to get better frames and be more competitive in the way that I want to be is a step in the right direction I want to improve my skills to go toe-to-toe with some of the better players in the game that used to as I said wipe the floor with me I want to train my aim further and use that training to take it to other first person shooter games that Im interested in I want to trans like the skills that I learned by becoming a better player and by using performance to become a better player to the channel and to my content and teach you guys more ways to get better at the game and I feel like after years of focusing on the spectacle of PlanetSide 2 and of those wow moments those back of the box experience moments this is a necessary step to take to get to where I want to be as a player and where I want my content to go and for my just general enjoyment of the game now I get it but Cami what about the production quality what about the super good looking videos you produce in the game in ultra settings what about promoting the game in the best light possible what happened to that little Mantra unfortunately guys heres a bit of a inside scoop for you the majority of my PlanetSide 2 content is now primarily viewed by subscribers only and given that the majority of my content is Planetside 2 focused its safe to assume that the majority of you who are subscribed kind of already know what PlanetSide 2 looks like at its best case scenario Im just sort of beating a dead horse far as the presentation is concerned to a lot of you out there now assuming that all of my quote unquote non-subscribers who are watching my PlanetSide 2 content have never even heard of PlanetSide 2 and they just found it due to the YouTube algorithm which I actually consider to be very unlikely there are very few quote-unquote new viewers to the PlanetSide 2 franchise watching my PlanetSide 2 content and while yes some of my biggest videos on my channel have primarily reached new viewers and also newcomers to the game the majority of my content is predominantly viewed by people who have been here for a while and already know what planets side to is like graphically and what it can achieve I quite frankly dont need to sell them that experience you guys already know what it is in addition as I discussed in my 2023 priorities video for PlanetSide 2 the first person shooters side of this game has kind of been on the back foot as of late and long-standing player retentions have continued to dwindle as a result at least thats my personal assessment of the situation I know not everyone agrees with that but thats my personal assessment of PlanetSide 2s dwindling population weve always had an issue in retaining new players due to the way this game plays now my content and the presentation quality it has may have a role in bringing new people through the door and getting them to try the game but the game struggles to keep those players around and as such I find it very hard to justify to myself sacrificing my ability to perform in-game at a level in which I want to do so on these higher end Graphics settings presets for what I view to be nowadays a rather limited return on investment for the health of the game and bringing new players aboard I think some other steps need to be satisfied from the development side of the game in improving you know player retention values before that return on investment is realized for me and my content so that gives you guys a bit of an insight as to the mentality behind this pretty significant change for my content All Things Considered and yeah why were going to be running potato settings on videos for the foreseeable future now I want to make it clear that thats not going to go for all videos if you will I understand that some of my content due to the nature of it and the Very nature of it is a going to attract newer players just by the nature of it being news updates and stuff like that and also theres no reason in writing said videos in potato mode because theres no actual benefit to me scoring Super Elite gameplay for a news video where were sitting in a VR training room testing out weapons so in those situations Id be open to keeping the ultra Graphics preset there but as far as general gameplay is concerned and just general background footage challenge video footage that sort of thing were going to be going down the potato settings going forward I also ran a poll on my channel a few days ago asking people about potato versus ultra settings and how open people would be to that idea some brought up the idea of having an alternating preset right in the sense that say on stream Id run the potato Graphics preset and then when I was just getting gameplay recording in the background off stream Id run the ultra Graphics preset it would allow me to go and have those moments of just getting absolutely Epic clips and then also provide the opportunity for me to get you know those higher Fidelity Clips the only problem guys is that I often use my stream time as my recording time the two are not mutually exclusive and well quite frankly switching in between recording presets and Graphics presets in a single video is going to look a little bit jarring so yeah were not going to be doing that its really a one or nothing situation so Im choosing potato over Ultra for the time being so yeah that was a bit of a long-winded video talking about graphic settings in PlanetSide and how my content is going to look differently if anything it was a bit more of a channel update above all else but I feel like it was something worth talking about given the way in which Ive you know stood by my content and some of the decisions Ive made around my graphic settings in the past and I feel like you guys should understand where this change is coming from and why its coming in the first place and quite frankly I hope you guys can understand where Im coming from here and I hope you
