Tribes will be a great success, I'm convinced!
Earnings will derive from optional downloadable content -NON GAMEPLAY MODIFYING EXTRAS.
TA itslef will be completely free to play without any drawbacks and therefore attract a lot of players.

PS : I hope that we will see rypelcam on it to, cause it was possible to use it in the old versions of Tribes
Rypel announced to return to rcam for this! afrodd.gif

Seeing there is some love for the new Tribes game.
I pre-ordered the game and got access to the closed beta.

I got some closed beta keys, if people are interested PM me Smiley.
If you want to pre-order as well, I got a 30% off coupon(only one though, but if someone else pre-orders they get the same stuff I did).

Beta contains 2 gametypes(CTF and Bunny somethin tongue) and 3 maps.
Vehicles are hardly used and actually are a disadvantage(I know some people on here will love this).

Download is about 1.5 - 2GB, runs on UE3.

Ok, now we can put everything Tribes related here

Just finished my first 3 CTF matches and I liked it a LOT.

Maps are huge.

The skying part definitely takes some time getting used to.

In many cases movement (skying) is more important than aim.

Getting the flag is easy, surviving afterwards is a different story.

If you're tired of hitscan, there seems to be a lot of projectile based weapons (prediction shots, yay!)

There are 12 classes each with additional "skilltree" of upgrades to unlock.

Classes differ in MOBILITY, DURABILITY, ANTI-ARMOR and RANGE

The game generally seems to have a high skill ceiling which is a nice change compared to most of todays shooters.

Hmm so yeah, If get the chance to play, go for it!!!

I'll just post here what I posed on PtE forum tongue.
The spoiler contains the downsides to the game and how the game works, since you won't really find an explanation in-game.

Would say there is 3 downsides to this game:
- no serverbrowser(you just select which region like EU and gametype to only press quick match)
- will take a lot of playing in order to unlock classes
- Tutorial is limited to explaining and showing how to skii and use jetpack(there are several other factors in the game that need explaining)

You start out with 2 classes unlocked(soldier and ranger). Each class has their own weapons and stats:



You've got your light armored and fast moving classes, medium armored and medium moving classes and heavily armored and slow moving classes.

Like in COD and BF you level up by playing, by leveling up you unlock XP points that are tied to the class you were playing with.
With these xp points you upgrade skills(have more energy, ...).



Next to skills you also have something called perks, you can only select 2 perks at a time.
These perks give you a little extra like +10 maximum enery, reducing costs of buying stuff in-game, reduce damage done to yourself, ...
I have no idea how to unlock perks because only 2 are unlocked at the start.



Movement in-game is all about skiing, if you check out the vids I posted in the main post you'll see what skiing is Tongue.
How fast you can go depends on your class, so it's not recommended to go after the flag while you are a class that is heavily armored but is slow.
Next to skiing you have your jetpack to reach places but also to launch yourself off hills to keep your speed up.
If you need to gain some speed fast you can always launch yourself by shooting the ground behind you with an explosive, this will take way about 50-60% of your HP.
You regain your HP after not getting hit for a while, you can always pick up ammo from people you have killed.



Skiing and jetpacking isn't your only mode of transportation, you also have the ability to buy vehicles.
Vehicles don't spawn is several places like in UT3, you buy a vehicle of your choice at a station.
You earn money by doing stuff in-game(killing people, assists, capturing flags, picking up flags, returning flags, ...), when you have enough money you can buy a vehicle.



A grav cycle is a motorcycle where 2 people can sit on(the passenger can be carrying a flag), it's a fast moving vehicle that can shoot grenades but requires a reloading time after shooting one.



A shrike is a vehicle that can fly and fire plasma bolts, after firing 4 bolts it needs to reload. It can seat 2 people(have no idea what the passenger can do).



Last vehicle is called Beowulf and is a tank. One downside to this is that they changed the sensitivity when you are in the tank so your mouse can move as slow as the tank does(not like in UT3 where you can aim at whatever you want but it still has to rotate to where you are aiming). Again it can seat 2 people where the second player takes control of the turret(no influence on the sensitivity).




Surrounding the base you have turrets that defend the base from intruders, these things are sort of hard to dodge because you need to wait till they fire in order to dodge their shots(def don't come too close, cause you can't evade them that way). Turrets can be shot down but they have a lot of HP, it's much easier to infiltrate the base and look for the generator, when you destroy the generator the turrets and inventory station(where you can get ammo) are offline. With your money you can upgrade the generator and turrets.

One little thing to add, they released a patch a couple of days ago that removed the speed cap on skiing. So that is one stat gone tongue.

That's a quite extensive review :)

Just don't forget it's a BETA. It has its rough edges and it already crashed on me once.

Go play Battlefield 3, crashes happen very often on there tongue.

Tribes hasn't crashed on me yet, I'm just hoping that the negative points I mentioned are just for the beta and will be gone for the full game. I hate using a quick match option instead of a server browser.

Don't get me wrong, I'm loving the game. You'll always have downsides, they don't bother me not that much as you might think Smiley.

If you can run UT3 you'll run Tribes w/o any problems.
