[TABLE="width: 700, align: center"] [TR] [TD][IMG]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1317195/tribes/header.jpg[/IMG][/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] Tribes: Ascend is a free-to-play multiplayer-only first-person shooter part of the Tribes franchise. It is currently being developed by Hi-Rez Studios and was announced on March 11, 2011 at PAX East with an expected release in early 2012. It will be available as a digital download for Microsoft Windows, though Hi-Rez Studios haven't ruled out the possibility of an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 release in the future. Iconic aspects from previous Tribes games such as jetpacks and skiing will be featured in the game. The game is now RELEASED, anyone can sign up and play at the [url=https://account.hirezstudios.com/tribesascend/?referral=1236054]Official Website[/url] [h2]Gameplay[/h2] [B]Skiing[/B] [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1317195/tribes/skiing.png[/img] The ability to ski and jetpack make Tribes: Ascend and the Tribes series so distinct. The two mechanics introduce many intricacies to the game. Skiing can be activated/toggled with the Space Bar and jetpacking used by pressing the RMB. Skiing doesn't have any negative effects on its user, whereas using a jetpack will drain your energy. Energy regenerates over time to a class specified capacity. [B]Loadouts[/B] The game uses a freemium payment system where players pay to unlock classes via in-game earned Experience or purchased Tribes Gold. Currently a player can swap classes at will during respawn or at an inventory station. A number of upgrades and new weapons can then be earned using experience. The rate at which experience is earned can be increased by purchasing Boosters or VIP status. Experience is shared between classes, but upgrades are specific to each class, even on devices that multiple classes have access to. There are also two perk slots, each with 9 perks players can unlock and upgrade.

Current maps are: -Drydock -Crossfire -Katabatic -Arx Novena -Temple Ruins -Sunstar -Raindance Many maps have CTF, TDM, and CAH variants, with a seperate cycle for Arena mode. [B]Voice Game System[/B] One of the most popular way to communicate in the game is through the VGS, a system of voice commands accessible through shortcut keys as used by games like Planetside, Unreal Tournament and the other Tribes games. [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1317195/tribes/TribesAscendVGS.jpg[/img] [h2]Latest Patch[/h2] [quote] -Three new weapons and two new skins have been added to the Raider class. -Players may now setup Custom Servers from inside the game menu system. Custom servers are private “rooms” for you to rent and play Tribes: Ascend in. Custom servers can be password protected. The sever administrator can choose from scores of custom rulesets to help tailor the play experience as desired. -A new Capture and Hold map has been added to the Quick Play rotation (Night Drydock). -Several improvements to player movement in networked games have been implemented. This eliminates some of the “jerkiness” while moving within the game, especially when playing at high ping.[/quote] [h2]Links[/h2] [url=http://www.tribesascendwiki.com/Main_Page]Tribes: Ascend Community Wiki[/url] [url=http://ph-matt.dyndns.org/~matt/weapondamage.php]Unofficial Weapon Damage Stats[/url] [url=http://www.facebook.com/tribesascend]Tribes: Ascend Facebook[/url] [url=http://forum.hirezstudios.com/phpbb/viewforum.php?f=250&sid=2820ef5aa5406049090350b5006e55c8]Hirez Official Forums[/url] [h2]Troubleshooting[/h2] [quote=Funion;34580498][B]IF YOU HAVE A BLACK SCREEN/NO CURSOR CLICK THE GEARS ON THE LAUNCHER AND VERIFY YOUR GODDAMN FILES[/B] that is all[/quote] [h2]Facepunch servers[/h2] [B]European server:[/B] "Facepunch EU" Pass: shazpunch [h2]Media[/h2] [img_thumb]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1317195/tribes/thread/action1.jpg[/img_thumb] [img_thumb]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1317195/tribes/thread/action2.jpg[/img_thumb] [img_thumb]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1317195/tribes/thread/action3.jpg[/img_thumb] [img_thumb]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1317195/tribes/thread/grav.jpg[/img_thumb] [img_thumb]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1317195/tribes/thread/shrike.jpg[/img_thumb] [img_thumb]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1317195/tribes/thread/fanart1.jpg[/img_thumb] [img_thumb]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1317195/tribes/thread/bg_by_PTdesu.jpg[/img_thumb] [img_thumb]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1317195/tribes/thread/guide.png[/img_thumb] [h2]Featured Videos[/h2] Official Promo: [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjyUy5f3VIw[/media] When I'm going fast: [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Q2EtUe1_NE&feature=player_embedded[/media]

[QUOTE=leonthefox;35699366]God damnit I was making the new thread I have failed sanic So what should I get first, plasma cannon, cluster, NJ5 or the whole pack?[/QUOTE] If you're using XP, then get the Plasma Gun (100,000xp or 780gold). If you are using gold, get the whole weapon pack (800gold).
[QUOTE=ktr;35699567]If you're using XP, then get the Plasma Gun (100,000xp or 780gold). If you are using gold, get the whole weapon pack (800gold).[/QUOTE] and the weapon pack + skins?
Anything indoors is now Raiders thanks a lot HiRez [editline]24th April 2012[/editline] Don't even need to aim that plasma gun just spray and hit random shit [editline]24th April 2012[/editline] I wish I could use paypal to buy gold so I can be OP raider too

[QUOTE=C4rnage;35699602]and the weapon pack + skins?[/QUOTE] Weapon Pack = 800g Weapon Pack + Mercenary Skin = 1132g Weapon Pack + Griever Skin = 1282g Weapon Pack + Mercenary Skin + Griever Skin = 1620g
In on first page for glorious diamond sword
[QUOTE=Clio;35699361]did you steal krails sexy op :([/QUOTE] He hasn't updated his Tribes: Ascend thread in 3 weeks so I guess he's not keeping up with it. I hope he doesn't mind me using his OP in his stead. I wish I could figure out how he aligned the images to the center and right though...
[QUOTE=Clio;35699507]Don't buy any of them until after the nerf[/QUOTE] they refund all ur stuff after a big update anyway
Well, playing HoF is imposible until the next patch. 5 plasma raiders in the enemy team and what I get? 5 infiltrators.
[QUOTE=ktr;35699691]Weapon Pack = 800g Weapon Pack + Mercenary Skin = 1132g Weapon Pack + Griever Skin = 1282g Weapon Pack + Mercenary Skin + Griever Skin = 1620g[/QUOTE] cool i can get mercenary skin and weapons
Didn't get FWOTD today:(. Too bad those new raider guns are damn expensive, that plasmagun looks pretty neat. would be nice to get it inb4 nerf.
[QUOTE=LaughBann;35699843]Didn't get FWOTD today:(. Too bad those new raider guns are damn expensive, that plasmagun looks pretty neat. would be nice to get it inb4 nerf.[/QUOTE] You'll need it by tomorrow then, Jackal got nerfed within a day and this is worse.
First raider game with the plasma gun. 35:6 16 midairs including one midair Triple Kill. [img]http://i42.tinypic.com/344qgdw.jpg[/img]
The plasma gun in t2 was basically an indoors instant win button. You either have room to move or die. However the slow shots made it laughable over any range greater than the distance a sandraker can cover in three seconds. [editline]24th April 2012[/editline] by the sounds of things the T:A plasma gun has a higher projectile speed, possible nerf in that regard?

[B]However the slow shots made it laughable over any range greater than the distance a sandraker can cover in three seconds[/B].[/QUOTE] So its effective range was 5ft? Wow that's pretty bad.
Hang on a minute Wasn't there a mention of a plasma cannon as well as the plasma gun in the game files?
New update is OP Guns are OP Skins are bad ( I mean seriously awful, lack of team ornament) This game is going to die soon. They should change the game name. From Tribes Ascend to Team Fortress 3 with Jetpacks. Seriously. Edit: Fuck your dumbs.
havent played yet but looking on some videos. its seems the "hitbox" of the projectile is quite huge. a nerf on that and maybe the fire rate would balance it

Edit: Fuck your dumbs.[/QUOTE] I'm sorry Team Fortress fanboy, you can't just come into a thread dedicated to a certain game and then just say "this is shit", without even giving any good reasons why it sucks. And may I ask why do you care about ratings?
i liken the raider update to that part in the return of the king when the Rohirrim charge at the orcs on the field [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Tgi-j56ueU&feature=related [/media] 3:09 + Rohirrim = raiders Orcs = everyone else

And may I ask why do you care about ratings?[/QUOTE] Okay. Here's the reason why I hate this update. #1 The weapons are OP (mainly plasma gun) #2 Skins are a joke (If you look on default gear they have ornaments, every part of the gear says in which team you belongs) #3 10$ for 3 guns? Sounds strange #4 Explain me, why should I waste 100,000 for a single gun when I can get several other classes? Hell buying perks is better than a single gun. #5 Game is going to die soon. Why? Because new people have a bad opinion about Tribes Ascend (hi-rez forum etc)
