For those that remember the annoyances of getting back-capped in the original PlanetSide there's some good news. It can still be done in PlanetSide 2, but not quite as easily.
Yes, the territory control system we’ve designed for PlanetSide 2 changes a lot of the mechanics about base capture and “back-capping.” Back-capping (the act of capturing a facility behind enemy lines) will still be possible but will require concentrated effort from groups of players rather than just a single player circumventing the major fight and being a nuisance behind your front lines. Defenders will be able to respond to back-capping a bit more easily, since capturing a base that’s surrounded by enemy territory will take an extremely long time and re-securing a base that’s surrounded by your own territory will be very quick.
