Playing on NY servers from Syd (260-300 ping) felt better than T1 or T2 netcode, and miles better than TA.
On the Sydney server I was pinging around 120 (from the middle of the NT), went on the US servers and was pinging around 90 :?

Apparently it loops at 250ms so your actual ping would have been 250 + 90.

Obviously some of these maps are quite rough and early works in progress - but how much attention do you think has been paid to the actual terrain design? From the screenies much of it looks like randomly generated fractal maps. It's impossible to tell from screenies though, but do you think these guys have some good mapper skills? Do we need to dispatch DOX?
There's no doubt that DOX is probably the best mapper in the Tribes franchise. He also understands gameplay dynamics. If his name is even associated with any maps it would give them real credibility...Not saying they can't get there on their own, but promising 5150 are in the first tourny is the only other move they have...and T.V burned that.

Verdant feels completed, but there's no way it should have vehicles. Suggestions for popular maps from t2 classic would be any no vehicle, smallish maps that can be played with LT type numbers...e.g. Beggars Run, Damnation, DeadlyBirdSong & Pandemonium. The best Vehicle inclusive maps would be Katabatic, No Shelter and harvester. A Minotaur style map could be fun to try shields and heavies on too.
