Sheer numbers often win the day, especially in Sony Online's PlanetSide 2, unless a band of squads plays things smart enough. However the World Domination Series event makes that nigh impossible, Sony admits.

They'll be unveiling changes they intend to make later today. The complaint is that huge sprawling masses just 'zerg rush' their way through bases, and it's putting people off.

There's only so far the current cert system in Planetside 2 can carry players before it runs out of unlocks, and so now the Sony Online team is looking into "personal progression systems" for long-term aspirations.

It's a "tough design challenge," says creative director Matt Higby. They can't "gear out" newcomers and so have to look at other customisation options besides just adding more 'gear to the treadmill'.
