Support T:V and you may see another in production - dont support it and watch the franchise you've played for years die.
i think he's right...makes me want to buy it just for keeping Tribes afloat
With our own maps and mods, it will be as good as T2.
i think he's right too...someone?

Hey stardifter mate,
Cliffs if you cbf reading all those whines -

T:V isnt as good as T2
T:V is nowhere near as good as T1
T:V is a step backwards from t2 in a lot of ways - eg: Sensor system,
Vehicles, Flag indicators, integrated teamwork facilities, voice chat, loadouts, waypoints or lack thereof.
Capping is not as "skillfull" as it once was - Energy pack boost and grapple has unevened the balance imho.
Graphics are good if your systems up to it.
Its still, kinda...sorta...Tribes underneath the changes theyve made for the worse...And hopefully this community will be dedicated enough to fix the game *im looking at you TW*

Oh, and T:V is the first game of the series that i havent automatically upgraded my comp for... :/ Can't be a good sign.

Anyways, i hope things get better, and hope to see you around.

TV lacks the 'Epic'ness that I have come to expect in FPS games. Even BF1942 Desert Combat has this certain something.

What I have noticed that is somewhat annoying is the dumbing down of the maps themselves. There are areas that are safe (well kind of) behind forcefields that cannot be owned so the defending team will always have the upper hand. The vehicles take absolutely no skill to pilot. Gone are the days of being in a vehicle and seeing a chasing shrike or something and realising it is Diametrica or Xandrax and feeling that you time was up pretty soon. Rape is a waste of time with Medium armour spawning.

But the most noticable is the terrain design. The hills are all designed to allow flag to flag and base to base full energy skiing, you just get funnelled into the middle and really don't need to look hard for a new plan if you get off course. Most skiing maps in the other games had multi routes and some little subtleties that made or broke your route. Sure, sure, it is not T1/T2 and neither is Doom 3. I don't expect to be buying either in the near future. (I initially was going to be buying it until the last couple of weeks but will wait till it is a cheapie if at all. All my judgement is based on playing the demo servers)

Plaz, have you played the game?
Rape is not a waste of time, if you're any good at it anyway.

Yah CB but just of course the 4 demo/beta maps. When on winterlake you can bring a base back up in 5 seconds there is no Mert/Meatage of the gens for the entire map anymore.

Play a map like Spiridian and then say that :P

On Isle if a team had decent HO going they could also shut down the opposition. Emerald as well to a slightly lesser extent.

pity playing HO on those maps is rubbish, your like some disposable wet napkin that lasts 5 secs, and then back there again in other 5 secs.

dox is right, even the best HO's from t2 don't last more then 5 seconds in an enemy base with mediums spawning, being good at HO isn't standing 400m from a base spamming mortars, any retard can do that, nor can you rape a base from 200m away

most of the time in t2, getting disced as HO wouldn't really do much to stop you but int t:v even getting random splash can send you totally off course, heavies feel so 'light' in a sense that you get knocked around so easily

Support T:V and you may see another in production - dont support it and watch the franchise you've played for years die.
Shut up 2004 era Colonel Blair (who also said at one point that it wasn't too far fetched that T:V might outsell WoW in Australia)
