Hey prac, long time.

From a tribes point of view Tribes Ascend in the Oceanic region is on life-support - pub games are reasonably common in the evenings from what I can tell but it's very rare to see a server reaching full capacity. Hi-Rez have stated they wont be doing anything else for T:A as they're focusing their energies on their real money earner SMITE.
They have stated previously that they'll be working on Tribes Ascend 2 in the future, but whether that actually happens or not remains to be seen. Some think they don't deserve another chance to ruin the franchise, but if they don't do it who knows if someone would pick up the rights to a game which hasn't exactly had great success in its last few iterations.

After T:As release there was a bit of a war between a section of the new generation of 'tribers' it had brought to the community and some of the old hands of bittah which resulted in a bit of a community split. A chunk of the community (the majority of which were the newer T:A players, however some were vets of the older games) went to the newly created tribesanz.com. That site became the 'hub' for T:A comp stuff for a few months until the comp scene died out. The site is practically dead now it appears.
Bittah basically went back to its pre T:A days of mostly players from the older games having bitch sessions about whatever the topic of the day is, reviewing movies & growing old.

Hopefully the last few years have treated you well. I know you had a few issues to deal with.

Nothing ever lasts I guess and yes getting older is one thing I'm finding hard to come to terms with (cough cough) anyway thanks for the update T2 is an old memory of the staying up to 3 am a many a night/morning. Haven't played online multiplayer for years more into console games now.

hi2u prac, still in bris?
Yeah mate Fortitude Valley and work on Queen St. You still about Brisbane?
Heh I was living in the valley a few months back. Was set up in the Petrie Point apartments on Bowen Terrace, 8th floor. Beautiful place. Spent around a year there.

Was lucky enough to spend quite a bit of time with Shakey and not as much time with Hobbit. Good guys the pair of them. As soon as Shakey left, brisbane was dead to me so I bailed.

Shit sorry xandrax I forgot about that, I was still new to Brisbane and it was all a blur. Hi xandrax I still love you, I reflect upon our ps2 time together.

Wedding is a long while off that shit is expensive and we decided a house was the first priority. So no date yet but you'll know :)

You still in the U.S? How's that treating you.
