Is the soldier's new pack just a complete upgrade over the energy pack in every way? Also the Tribes Ascend wiki sucks, we should help it suck less. [url]http://www.tribesascendwiki.com/Main_Page[/url]
[QUOTE=Funny Hats;34843143]Buying things with gold directly is a waste anyway.[/QUOTE] Maybe to you but I can't guarantee I'll be able to (or want to) play any given number of hours a day, so buying flat gold is probably better value. [editline]24th February 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=No_0ne;34843348]beta[/QUOTE] Don't worry you're preaching to the choir. Based on the way hirez has responded to issues so far I'm pretty confident they'll get this sorted out eventually.
infiltrator is such a fun class never before have i felt like such an asshole to the other team

[QUOTE=jeimizu;34843366]Is the soldier''s new pack just a complete upgrade over the energy pack in every way?[/QUOTE] Energy pack gives you 35 energy max, new pack gives 20 energy, 1 more grenade, +10%run speed, and more ammo. Not too much better, but you can get 4 grenades now with safety third.
And that's not a straight upgrade how

[url]http://www.tribesascendwiki.com/Temple_Ruins[/url] I started a page for Temple Ruins, since it didn't exist and a lot of pages linked to it. You should add more info and pictures if you have them. I made pages for the new arena maps to, since they were also linked to but non-existant, though I've never played them, so they have even less info at the moment.

I really hope hi-rez changes their stance on grenades. It's really annoying dieing to a barrage of 1100 damage grenades in a confined (sometimes even outside) space without being able to avoid them. Plus, as much as I do it, it's pretty cheap to award extra points for throwing grenades at your feet on death. I dunno, I have a hard time spotting grenades, is that just me?

As a Raider, though, I deal mostly with grenades, so perhaps I do not find myself being killed by any other grenades but my own, usually when I blunder with a shot or shoot at a heavy who got a bit too close... let me just say I am very excite! I have just unlocked egocentric and I will not have to VGO as often anymore to the delight of those filthy sandrakers.

[url]http://www.tribaloutpost.com/tribes2/maps/view/aeroena[/url] I didn't realize Air Arena was based on a T2 custom map. I'm fairly certain I've played that map a few times and I didn't notice :v:

The only class I think is entitled to such powerful nades is vanilla tech, because it's his only explosive firepower, but the thumper cancels that out. A grenade indicator wouldn't hurt, or at least make them more visible, maybe like they are in hl2. Too many times I just walk into grenades because I can't see them.
Holy fuck, that new Volcano map is fucking huge.
I pretty much never ever miss a grenade(thrown on me), however they usually land where I can't escape them in time. Also the disco nades are really easy to escape unless you're unlucky and get pinned into a corner with one. Around level 10+ people learn to just walk the fuck away from them and you stop getting kills from them, before that they rape everyone.
I never manage to hit anything with my grenades, so I never use them or upgrade them. Should I start?
[QUOTE=villa;34844597]I never manage to hit anything with my grenades, so I never use them or upgrade them. Should I start?[/QUOTE] I find Grenades extremely useful on classes that lacks proper explosive firepower (Like almost all the classes I use)
hi funionly you were fun to blow up repeatedly.
[QUOTE=Raijin;34844728]hi funionly you were fun to blow up repeatedly.[/QUOTE] he let you kill him so you feel better and don't kill yourself over how inferior you are to him :)
[QUOTE=jiggu;34844586]Also the disco nades are really easy to escape unless you're unlucky and get pinned into a corner with one.[/QUOTE] It's like a grenade that continually explodes [i]for several seconds[/i] But yeah they kill me pretty often, no matter how much I try to avoid them. It's not so much that people run straight into them as it is that if one goes off close to you or in front of you while you're moving, you die.
Nah, he just cant play infiltrator because it takes skill compared to jugg [editline]24th February 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=catbarf;34844787]It's like a grenade that continually explodes [i]for several seconds[/i] But yeah they kill me pretty often, no matter how much I try to avoid them.

I can never find a decent team for this game. Any of you guys wanna team up and kick some ass? I never do anything with my fellow FPers.
there is any way to make add this game on steam so i can use steamoverlay too?
just put the shortcut on your desktop into the steam library.
There is this thread in the forums going on about inheritance. I have a very broad sense of what it does, except now I'm all confused, where should I aim? What is the value now in game? Or is it an old issue?

Basically, some people can't aim while they're going fast and whine about it.
