Holy shit the plasma gun is just as OP as i expected.
[QUOTE=coverop;35700151]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? #5 Game is going to die soon. Why? Because new people have a bad opinion about Tribes Ascend (hi-rez forum etc)[/QUOTE] #1 true #2 true #3 Wow, $10 for 3 guns where have I seen this before??? [url]http://www.tf2.com/[/url] #4 then go get the other classes idk what you're complaining about here #5 most new players are coming from call of duty and other shitfest FPS's and bitch about how the game doesn't just let them point and click and actually requires them to aim and lead their shots.

[QUOTE=coverop;35700227]#3. Weapons drops very often. You can trade. You have friends. #4. Having more classes is more fun than having a one gun for one class.[/QUOTE] I just feel that although some of the weapons add some value to the game, like TF2 it will all become too much after a certain point. The skins are the TF2 equivelant to hats in my opinion; it's just going to bloat the aesthetic of this game and make it confusing for anyone who doesn't play the game daily. You won't know what you're up against when every class has a dozen viable loadouts. It all just becomes too much, a bit careless after a while (in terms of weapon design), and you'd wish you could just play the game in the state it was in during release

Guys, look at the plasma gun like this. You sacrifice grenade spam capabilities, which do lots of damage and in a gen room I can easily get kills with the grenade launcher, for more precision and control over where you fire. I won't be using the plasma gun because I like spamming grenades, what I'm interested in getting is the cluster grenade, because more grenades the better.
I was listening to the inFamous soundtrack and Jim Dooley's music really remind me of Tribes Ascend. [video=youtube;jZcYzJau2OM]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jZcYzJau2OM[/video] [video=youtube;kVWUIMFmwa4]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kVWUIMFmwa4[/video]
The skins are so bad how am I supposed to know who is on which team when the only way a big arrow can not be above their head is if they use a fizzing grey jammer that makes the colour unrecognisable anyway
If they don't nerf the plasma gun, raider will be the only class people will play.
Problem I see with the Plasma Gun is the projectile is like a mine, where its trigger proximity is much larger than it appears. That's why it's sooo easy to get mid-air kills. Try it in training mode against flying bots. You will see that it does damage by proximity rather than direct hit.
You know Cover have good points but he exaggerates things a little: 1) Yes there is alot of problem with the balance this days but a good patch should fix this. 2) Skins are skins. They are just options that nobody push you to buy, but yes, this game needs team color skins 3) The price is common for a free to play but still, is a little high. If you look at tf2 you can get atmost any weapon via craft sistem or trading. but Tf2 have another way to f2p so is not compareble to tribes. 4) Paying for classes is unfair and for new people result in getting a class they dont know how to use or something different. Maybe a free trial day would fix this. 5) The main problem with any f2p is the new players. Old veterants hate them and most of the time dont give a toss about them and they leave in early levels without playing all the classes, modes, etc forcing you to buy gold or keep playing until you get the huge amount of exp for one weapon. But by far the most unfair thing in the game is the exp sistem for non-vip players. I know they want money, sure, but if you dont have vip the time you need to spend to get such a big number of exp makes people quit.
The only problem with the plasma gun is how the hitbox is too big when it comes to MidAirs, anything else about it is fine, and the other weapons are fine aswell. Skins = opinion Prices? The game is free to play, you can grind your way without ever spending a cent, or you can spend cash on stuff, some of the price may be high, but nothing forces you to buy any of it if they're too expensive for you. Yeah, classes should be available right off the bat. The thing about new players & veterans hating them goes for any and all kind of games, and is not only restrained to games.
Yeah they're gonna release a patch real quick, they always do. Bugs I've noticed: 1. The guns are OP (I'm considering it a bug lol) 2. The idle boost to hover with the shrike no longer works. I tried to hover over a guy and I dropped like a rock right onto him. 3. First win of the day is disabled
[QUOTE=Aedus;35700163][thumb]http://i44.tinypic.com/2zqfzpi.jpg[/thumb][/QUOTE] But your game was actually 16 minutes and 19 seconds longer than mine
[QUOTE==DarkStar=;35700594] 4) Paying for classes is unfair and for new people result in getting a class they dont know how to use or something different. Maybe a free trial day would fix this. [/QUOTE] You can try any of the classes and weapons that you don't own in the training modes
[QUOTE=Espio;35700765]You can try any of the classes and weapons that you don't own in the training modes[/QUOTE] But those target dummies dont do anything to fight you back. I was talking about trying one class (not a weapon) in real online matches so people will get a grip of the gamestyle of each class.
First win of the day is not disabled. I got it after 3 matches... same goes to SMNC.... strange.
Why is "repairing" taking so long?

[QUOTE=radiomonster;35700874]Why is "repairing" taking so long?[/QUOTE] get more people to repair with you [editline]24th April 2012[/editline] oh you meant the game file repairer
Did they reallly rename "reinstall" to "repair"?
I'm afraid I'm the shazbot here.

I really hope it's a bug and they didn't try to totally remove that function.

Also with skins they should be like this: [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/10565588/Pictures/SHAZBOT/howitshouldbe.png[/img] Mind the shitty hue level changes I didn't realize how pale it was when I was doing it.

Is anyone else getting a problem were their game isn't updating?
I think the weapon should get a damage falloff. keep it effective in the area the raider is set for, and don't make him the new flag clearer.
What was the line you added at the end of the steam shortcut to make the " outdated launcher " popup dissapear? I lost it when steam removed the shortcut for some reason. Also I'm having issues skiing now, it's as if whenever I press the jetpack my char jumps too, it messes up my skiing a lot when going straight foward, but my jetpack button is not bound to jump/jet.
I have a $25 MasterCard Gift Card and the Elite Pack is $30... Fuck. The $20 is a rip-off because it's half the gold and the 30-day booster (That you get for free with the Elite Pack) costs as much as the $20 worth of gold you get.
