Credit to Planetside.wikia.com, here's the background and philosophy of why we choose to fight as the NC.

The Rebels
Traitors. Rebels. Terrorists. These are words often associated with the New Conglomerate, However, to many the New Conglomerate is something else entirely: Heroes. Freedom Fighters. Protectors.

Colours
Blue and Gold

Description
A loosely connected group of rebel factions and idealistic freedom fighters, the New Conglomerate fights against the hegemony of the Terran. The New Conglomerate is a separatist faction determined to remain free of the controlling and domineering Republic. They feel that any form of control is oppression and that a miserable free man is better off than a contented slave.

Philosphy
The New Conglomerate (NC) split from the Terran Republic due to its totalitarian oppression and is now determined to write a new history free of the overbearing and draconian Republic. Now an empire in their own right they are in total open war with both the Terran Republic and the Vanu Sovereignty, seeking to free humanity from the tyrannical grip of the former, and defend them from the fanatical alien influence of the latter.

Since the start of hostilities, the unpredictable and ruthless tactics employed by the insurgent NC have allowed them to gain significant ground against the seemingly overwhelming TR military. Their methodology is to achieve victory by any means necessary and they are not afraid to use experimental weaponry, guerrilla tactics or unconventional warfare if the need arises. The New Conglomerate's philosophy of warfare stresses brute force, thus their tactics rely upon heavy tanks, hard-hitting weapons systems, and shields hoping to smash the enemy in the initial contact before they can react.

Notable quote regarding the Terran Republic (TR)
"This whole mess comes down to a bunch of military despots being unwilling to let go of the reins of power. We're not going to live under TR dictatorship any longer, and we'll fight them to the last man to show it. We won't stop until the people can control their own destinies; we'll live our lives, run our businesses, and raise our families - without the constant oversight of men with guns.”

Notable quote regarding the Vanu Sovereignty (VS)
"Seems like they've forgotten that it wasn't too long ago we were all in the same boat. Unfortunately their fanaticism has become dangerous. Frankly, their "convert or else" attitude reminds me of the goddamned TR. There's no place for the Vanu Sovereignty in a free world, because they refuse to respect my right to tell them to fuck right off."

Technology
The Blue and Gold are built around hitting first, hitting hardest and taking a beating. Although their weapons might not have the most finesse (often having strong kick, long reload times, and slower firing rates) they do pack a hell of a punch. And while not blessed with the infinite resources of the Terran Republic, the New Conglomerate has managed to build up enormous reserves of weapons, armor and vehicles which are well maintained. Their equipment might not be the prettiest on the battlefield, but the Conglomerate's philosophy is that, so long as a weapon shoots straight, it will get the job done. This means, to the Conglomerate's soldiers, that there is an incredibly diverse range of weapons and gadgets to work with.

On the vehicles side, the New Conglomerate has two unique empire vehicles, the Reaver attack fighter and the Vanguard medium battle tank. Whether in the air or on land, the NC vehicles pack on more armaments and armor as well as abilities that allow them to stay in battle longer than the other empires equivalents. While the NC vehicles excel in durability and sheer firepower, their tradeoff is in mobility and speed.

The Reaver may be slower to fire and move; it makes up for it in punch. The Reaver boasts excellent durability, the ability to pack on more armaments and armor, and when the Reaver's weapons hit their mark the enemy certainly knows it.

The Vanguard follows the same philosophy as the NC Reaver. The Vanguard is the slowest of the main battle tanks and slowest to fire, however it is also the best armored of all the main battle tanks and it's weapon capabilities are devastating.



Personally, I've just always liked the colour blue.. :whistle:


Nothing interesting to see here. Move along.

Liberty or death!

People only play TR because they didn't know how to change and the Vanu probably just miss clicked on the NC.

I chose NC because I preferred being a smurf over an elmo or a barney...

The first video made me laugh as NC, the second was very good, as in the speech.

"fuck you, I won't do what you told me"

I went NC as my friends had. My secret shame is that i love the TR music, feels so epic and rousing. VS is great too, and they get Leonard Nemoy. We get goofy surfrock and a teenage girl, but i still think our soldiers look the best =]

I went NC because the TR seemed to be "Power through oppression" and I want no USA bullshit like that...

Vanus are nerds, plus in our language vanu means the cotton fluff stuff in your toiletries..

NC was about freedom. Liberating and stuff; I'll liberate the enemies of their corporal form - eat enemy for breakfast, shit rainbows!

My friend, who introduced me to PS2, played NC, so rather naturally I followed him into the ranks of the NC.


However, as a hardcore Warhammer 40k nerd (seems like there are quite a few of those around in this game...) I think the TR is actually quite cool. As in, "obey or be purged..."

Still, I like the weapons of the NC way better than TR. Most guns really require some skill to operate effectively, which is much more rewarding than the 'spray 'n pray' style of the TR.

I chose NC because my friends picked NC. To be honest i think the TR have weapons that are more suited for my playstyle (i like to rush and spray and pray, can't help it.)

But NC is for the more skilled players so fuck em all, yihaa!

Why? Because there is no choice! I could never support neither fascist opressors nor totalitarian transhumanists.
For Freedom it is! They may brake our bones, but never our spirit! For Democracy!




Even if, in our case, "Democracy means simply the bludgeoning of the people by the people for the people". Oscar Wilde) :P

For reasons of pure awesomeness, I'm taking the liberty to insert your first video.
That speech always gives me goosebumps, considering the person that performs/writes it (Charlie Chaplin) and the time in history in which it was written (1940).

Why i play whit NC?

Because i love the blue and gold, and the freedom worth more than every thing in the world, beacuse if you free, you dont have shortages. Whitout patriotism the life means nothing. You need to belong somewhere, if you dont have roots you dont have a real life essentialy.


Anyway this video always inspire me to play. (except after i ragequite cuz crash my new reaver:D)

I chose NC because:

1. I dont like spandex or communists.

2. The music.

3. Space amuricans are cool.

4. Shotguns.

Frankly, it was the faction with the lowest percentage of players at the time of my registration, and I liked the blue and gold. But now, since the music is so obviously inspired, i like to think of the NC as the browncoats of Firefly, and as such we are cool even if we're losing.

Though, regarding my experience in a reaver, they obviously CAN take the sky from me... :-/
