PlanetSide 2: Create All Your Characters on Day 1 to Start Gaining Passive Certification Points

As identified in the "PlanetSide 2: How Many Characters Per Server?" thread, you can have up to three PlanetSide 2 characters per SOE account. If you are planning to play only a single PlanetSide 2 character forever, then this post doesn't apply to you. But if you ever have a remote chance of playing different PlanetSide 2 character (e.g. one for each faction), then it's in your best interest to create all three characters on day one.

That is because PlanetSide 2 provides passive certification points over time for active characters. And active characters are ones that log in periodically.

For example, I created all three characters (one for each faction) the first day. But I tried out the VS character the first week. After the first week, I switched to my TR character and found 12 cert points on my TR character already. Unfortunately, I had created the NC character the first day as well, but did not log in. So when I did log in to play it, it had zero cert points.

Lesson learned, it doesn't pay to create and log in to PlanetSide 2 characters at the instance you going to play it. Create your character and log in as early as possible.

Looks like with the latest patch, they have removed this passive certificate gain. See this thread: "Offline Cert Point Gain...gone?". That's too bad.

Bad information about the passive certificate gain being removed. It looks like it's still around. Here is more information: Passive Cert Points. But you have to remember to log into each of your character every day in order for the continuous gain.

Weblog: GearHack
Excerpt: With the official public launch of PlanetSide 2 only four days away, I decided to try the beta to learn the basics to gain an advantage when the game is released.

Title: PlanetSide 2: Purchase Grenades During Downtime
Weblog: GearHack
Excerpt: A few days ago, I wrote an "PlanetSide 2: Grenades" article and created a video demonstration on how to get grenades in PlanetSide 2.
