Tribes: Ascend

Post by PessimiStick » Wed Apr 18, 2012 9:37 am

So I've been playing this a ton since Nov/Dec, and I figured I'd make a post here in case anyone hadn't heard of it but might be interested.

If you played either of the original Tribes, you know what the game is about, but if you don't, this gives a pretty good breakdown of everything: Reddit Post


If you want to play (it's free!), here is my referral link: https://account.hirezstudios.com/tribes ... aign=email
Using the referral gives you an XP bonus when you hit rank 6, and gives me some XP and gold as well. It's win-win.

My in-game name is PessimiStick, add me and come play.

I've been playing it too. It feels "right" as a tribes game and I think they did a good job. Can't beat free either.

No clue how you can find Tribes boring, but enjoy Diablo.

I played a bit of it, I get these random 1-2 second screen pauses that really ruins the flow, was fun before it happens. Need to find a fix for it and I would play more often.

There are definitely problems with the game, but I still pub for a couple hours a day and have fun. Competition is fun as well, but there are some serious balance issues that still need to be addressed.

Edit:What's your in-game name Meaning?

There's some issue since the last patch that causes that micro stutter. I only get it on Arx Novena, and it's sporadic, and very short pauses (tenths of a second), but it's definitely obnoxious.

Double edit: Try this? http://forum.hirezstudios.com/phpbb/vie ... 14&t=68199

Here's a set of comp. games from Wednesday night if you want to see what more organized play looks like:

Moot Point vs. Egocentric - Arx Novena
Moot Point vs. Egocentric - Katabatic
Moot Point vs. Egocentric - Sunstar

Sunstar was the closest of the 3, Arx was a blowout.
