Party system seems perfect, reminds me of good 'ol Counter-Strike.

Re: Killzone 2 MUST have a party system

In my opinion, CoD4 & 5 had one of the easiest and most user friendly party systems. It was easy to use and set up, the buttons that you needed to invite your friends, start a party, begin game were right there and you were able to have the same options as when you were alone.

 

The most important thing for me though, is to have a usre friendly party sytem, and I hope GG can do that.

finally someone with common sense. i am tired of people saying a in game friends list is as good as a party system. what happens when 5 of 6 of your friends get into a game but it fills up? then you all gotta leave and keep trying to get into one all at once. the point of a party system is to be ONE group that enters and leaves a game TOGETHER, so this gets rid of all the issues with all your friends trying to get into a room before it fills up. in a party system, you wont go into a game/room unless your whole party can get in. and also, you will be on the same team.

Also, most of the time in the CoD series when a game disconnects you will fall back to the part. It saves time then too go back, look at your friends list, find who's playing Killzone 2, join them then your friends join.

 

BTW, I know everyone is sick of CoD talk, but IMO it had one of the easiest party systems/menu. You were able to just jump in a game with your friends with out any trouble.

Yeah but in CoD you automatch.  There is no need for a party system in a game that uses a lobby system, all you need is a friends list that gives you the option to join the game from your friends list by just highlighting them and selecting an option. Atleast in kz2 if your in a game you don't have to leave or make your friends wait when they come online, they just join yours. CoD did have a good party system because it was easy but it only needed one because it uses automatch.

Good point.

 

But, the problem is that a lobby might get full and you'll have a difficult time to get your other firends on.

Re: Killzone 2 MUST have a party system

So no party system, fine...but is there a way to make sure I will be on my friends team when I join a game and that will I stay on their team at all times? Even with team auto-balancing?

I'd prefer a party system, but I'm sure if it was needed, the beta testers would have brought it up.

CoD4 party system + the stuff KZ2 already has would be nice. If I could only pick one, I'd prefer the CoD4 party system. It's more accessible, much more convenient. 

 

This and the 30FPS are the two disappointing things about this game so far.
