DMB HOF - So you wanna play HOF? (an open guide) -
Description: YES. HEAVY ON FLAG ACTUALLY NEEDS A GUIDE. Trust me, you're not the first one to be surprised. It's an open guide which is rather informative, much more then you'd think for a topic such as this. If you're going to be a HoF, read this guide.

Dueling Theory 101 : a beginner's guide to dueling in T:A -
Description: Dueling Theory 101, a beginner's guide to dueling in Tribes: Ascend. Not really much to describe here when the title says it all itself. Even if you're a veteran this guide can possibly help you survive longer and even possibly come out on top in your duels with other T:A players.

A guide to flag offense Infiltrator -
Description: A guide that features basic but useful information for new infiltrators and sometimes veteran ones. Providing information and explanations of each weapon, grenade, and such.

Defending in CTF: A Perspective -
Description: one of the reasons pubs seem to be so awful is because nobody ever cares to pay attention to what they should be doing, what they should prioritize, so they just mind themselves, the gen, and maybe the flag. It's a team game and this guide will show you how to do it right. Even if it is a little basic.

Doombringer: Base Defense -
Description: A guide like any other, except it gives quite the interesting way to play Doombringer in a way that you might wanna read. It focuses more on base defense as you can tell rather then HoF. If you're looking to play Doombringer but don't wanna be stuck with not using WASD then this might just be the guide for you.

Class video guides - Know your role! -
Description: If you are at all new to Tribes:Ascend or are thinking about unlocking a class you never touched, this is DEFINITELY something you can't miss, it gives a basic, yet very imformative overview on all the classes and they're all in video forum, so no walls of text. All in all, it's very recommended to look into, as I've said, so be sure to do so.

Flag Routes:
TerminalInsanity's Heavy Cap Routes! -
Description: A little informational post (Can't quite call it a guide.) about Heavy Cap Routes. It's worth the read in my opinion and is being updated constantly as this is being written.

Off Website Things:
Tribes: Ascend Wiki -

It's a great wiki that I used and still do use for various purposes and it's really recommended you check it out a bit.

[INFO] Weapon Damages -
Description: An update informative thread which states all the damage weapons deal in the game, as the title implies. If you're looking to understand the game better, this would be a good step towards doing so. It even has videos. I tip my hat to you, FelixTG.

Tribes: Ascend Offline Installer Download Links -
Description: FlackJacket being the handsome and amazing guy he is did a request for someone in regards to an offline installer rather then the current online installer T:A has.
