Reader Connor, fresh off a tour in PlanetSide 2, found that a particular location made him pause and reach for the screenshot button. "I saw this while maneuvering my Sunderer into position. Beauty on the battlefield!"
Check out Connor's oasis as well as plenty of other gorgeous war-torn locales after the jump!
"I took this screenshot in the zone of Gloamwood," Sharvis wrote. "I think Trion did an excellent job of creating a haunted, foreboding woods atmosphere. This particular screenshot was taken up in the hills, off the beaten path. Even with trees, you get a sense of things not being quite right. I have to admit, whenever I look at this screenshot, I feel as if I could just fall over and tumble down a slope."
Reader Zyrusticae said that he took this after a long-delayed homecoming: "Good ol' Rata Sum. I hadn't been back for around 60 levels, so it was nice to come back and do a bit of sightseeing. My character feels a bit out-of-place there now, though, being an Asura warrior clad in rather barbaric gear."
"I'd like to introduce Martee, my newly created level 9 Rogue in Vanguard," Johanis wrote. "At only level 9, he's really enjoying his adventures so far. After watching so many streams of Vanguard on Massively, I finally decided to once again jump back in."
