Tribes: Ascend v2: I went slow once and it was awful

I loved the Starwolves, i wish they where still around :smith:
Although there is SOME hope with that whole skin selection we've yet to see be used.
Edit: Also just won a match of rabbit as a Brute, rage ensued.
Just started playing today and I have to admit, I've been missing out on so much. This game is incredible; it's the most fun I've had in a shooter in a LONG time. My first few rounds went incredibly well and it was so fun and fast-paced. Loving Pathfinder.
In one of the podcast interviews, they said something about how there was a prophecy that said the Diamond Swords, who are normally the most peaceful faction, and are pretty much supposed to be space Buddhists, would "strike too late," and so they're attacking preemptively, which is why that lady says "honor will be sacrificed."
I heard some shit about Diamond sword being right into meditation and inner peace (Hence the "Sand-racker" and neat, pristine armour) and the blood eagle being a group of rebels, rebelling against the oppressive government, and Diamond sword is their defence group or something
Someone was going on about that in a server once, they were probably just high or something.
Technically, Tribes lore dates back to Starsiege, which also goes back to Earthsiege. If you read it all it makes sense. The Children of the Phoenix are derived from Harabec Weathers/Bek Storm, whose call sign was Phoenix. And fought during the events of Starsiege.
here's a website full of tribes lore

75% of xp you get is game length, 25% is how well you do.

Reddit went slow and it was awful.
So I can't install the game
Every time I run the installer it crashes
This genuinely sucks because I grew up with Starseige Tribes and I really want to play this one
so I'm trying to do the whole practice using classes you don't have yet, and I can't quite find the option. I chose training, but target practice doesn't unrestrict the classes. I must be doing something wrong.

They haven't made all classes available in training after the class overhaul yet.
So I got a beta key and activated my account and installed the game but when I launch I can't accept the EULA agreement because my mouse pointer isn't visible. Did anyone else have this problem?
Got a beta key from /v/. TIME TO GO FAST :dance:
[QUOTE=Kevinsevenalt;34559654]I love it when people have conversations with the voice system.
Player 1: "I AM THE GREATEST!"
Player 2: "No"

Enemy caps our flag
Guy on our team: Woohoo!
this is basically how you play heavy on flag
[QUOTE=Mastahamma;34558496]feels especially well when you do it without direct LoS over a huge distance when it works like an actual mortar and not a crappy grenade launcher[/QUOTE]
Oh God, that feel when you randomly launch a mortar into the air after watching someone run off with the flag and then end up hitting and killing them
If your generator is under attack, just get a juggernaut to fire a fusion mortar in there. Clears out the whole room instantly.

[QUOTE=Askaris;34557511]Reminds me of this:
Comparing somethingawful to /v/ is usually a really bad idea :v:
So is the only way to get a key through facebook ?
I removed my facebook account a while ago and I don't really want to open a new one just to get a key.
I might have one, but no idea how to check with the new lawn chair.

I'm already posting on FP: anything else I do will only add to the seething hatred they already have for me. :v:
