Considering investing the cash for all the unlocks but don't want to waste my money if it's a dead ringer. Do the aus servers fill up? is CTF the main mode played ?
you missed the rush on release where there were full servers in aus every night. atm the swift and branzone servers are getting mid-range numbers with a mix of randoms and regulars but there are plenty of active players on bittah.com/discord. lately we've been having a solid run of nightly LT pugs between 8pm and midnight. we've run two draft CTF comps (so far) and our second LT comp is in a couple of weeks so most of us are wanting to practice that during the lead up.
base needs a little more work (particularly with vehicles) and we're not expecting huge updates any time soon. imo the skiing isn't better or worse than t2, just different. once you get your head around it you can go from point A to B just like you would've in t2. most people say it's somewhere between t1 and t2c but the core movement and dueling is still fun as hell.
the devs would probably love some extra funding, sling them $30 for a progression pass and come idle in discord
Happy to support it, will buy the back, just didnt want to if it was a complete dead game, but if people are generally playing im down!
But there's certainly a group enjoying it for what it is - running a few tournaments with $$ prizes... no clan scene is going to happen I'm sure, but we'll just keep having fun while it's alive
If you enjoyed tribes and want to have some fun with it again it's well worth giving it a go. Jump in discord and say gday to everyone, there'll be people who can link you to tutorials or whatever you need to get up to speed.
