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

The OP is even updated with the fix, why does no one look there.
I played this game today. I never ever played any Tribes game, and I reached 160 sanics. It's a bit laggy though, even on minimal
[QUOTE=The very best;34588170]They take two, and in that time of reloading your health has already been widdled down to like, 100. At least the light spinfuser/bolt launcher takes two[/QUOTE] I'm pretty sure a direct hit does them in one and and splash damage two (but the first shot does most of their health). It's hilarious the number of people who think they can cap on their own though. You're meant to have a heavy behind you spamming mortars or something at the flag. It's also funny the number of people who fly through forcefields to get the flag and bitch that they died.
Getting an airkill with the disk bazooka really brings me back to the Quake days. This game is a lot more fun than I expected.
[QUOTE=Starship;34589258]Is 30 fps and less all I should expect from this PC on max settings? i5 2500k 4.3 ghz 8gb 1600Mhz RAM Sapphire HD 6850 ASUS p8 z68-V pro[/QUOTE] Anyone?
I got a shittier setup than that and I'm running it in 60fps with no issues.
[QUOTE=Starship;34589631]Anyone?[/QUOTE] Nope, try medium settings, they don't differ much from the max settings. My pc is worse (I think), but I still get 30+/-10fps on max settings.
Am i the only person playing on lowest graphic settings ? I can run the game fine on High but it distracts me too much, the dull textures and lack of pretty effects makes it much easier to see people for me. I used to do the same thing with Quake 3 arena

[editline]7th February 2012[/editline] On max settings.
Just remembered I'd received a closed Beta key about 10 days ago. Installing now! :D
Are two clean flag caps both around 25s in time a good thing? Also what do 35 SANICS mean? also something else to do with SANIC.

Played my second round a few minutes ago, I had the longest kill in that round, 3700 metres. Is that good :v:
Just got my beta key and played two rounds. Awesome.
Read the OP. I came to this thread with the same problem and I found the answer within the first 15 seconds by READING THE OP INSTEAD OF ASKING.
Guys, after a few days I think I'm playing this game wrong. Could anyone tell me why all my matches usually turn out like this? [b]Earlygame[/b] I go Pathfinder because I enjoy the speed and try to get better at fluid moving & shooting with the spinfuser as well as flag capping if I get the chance. Shortly afterwards I notice the reason why our turrets are down (and our flags keeps getting captured as a result) is because there's a terrible Juggernaut/Infiltrator infestation in our base. [b]Midgame[/b] consists of trying to win back our base and setting up defenses, which is usually achieved when >50% of our team goes Tech/Sentinel to fill the place with turrets and explosives. In [b]Lategame[/b] both sides have bunkered their places completely so that normal Pathfinder caps don't work. Instead we get a pissing match between the ~3 top players of both teams that throw vehicles and orbital strikes at each other. The rest of the team is pretty much useless and tries to keep the defenses up. This isn't fun to play and my team loses in >80% of all cases. Obviously it should average out at ~50% when the teams are constantly mixed, but since it doesn't, it appears I'm doing something wrong. I'm constantly trying to fix stuff around our base and can't really get past the enemy's defenses from Midgame onwards. Should I just ditch my team and base and keep charging their flag until it works or what?
[QUOTE=Starship;34589631]Anyone?[/QUOTE] I rock a 3ghz ADM phenom and a 4850 and even I can run it on max settings, oddly no higher or lower than 30fps.

Tribes is about a careful balance between offense, midfield and defense. Not enough defence and your team will just get spawnraped, not enough offense and your team isn't going to win. Midfield is for weakening attackers and chasing cappers. Turtling seems to work too, though :v: In general, try to find a role that's not already filled and stick to it for the match. I usually play defensively because I can't cap for shit and I haven't unlocked the brute.

Don't let defense class duties distract you.
I've learned that I have shit aim with anything but that onehanded grenade launcher, and I go faster than most when I ski so I mostly go after the flag. But if I wanna go faster I need to have less of a shit aim with the spinfusor and the shotgun and I have tried but my aim just wont improve. So I have to choose between either be able to defend myself or go even faster. WHY CANT I HAVE BOTH

I used to exclusively play Ranger (Soldier before Soldier was Soldier) and thought the Thumper was the cream of the crop but its limited range and arching path doesn't compare to the Spinfusor.

Group up with other pathfinders and soldiers and get as many caps as you can. When you have two more than the enemy, everyone switch to defense, upgrade the turrets and generator, KEEP SOMEONE NEAR THE GENERATOR, and turtle the shit outta your flag until the round ends or some lucky sanic pathfinder gets you the caps you need to win.
