Basically my story.. cept the friend of mine was a nutball Quake1 player. He was considered (and I guess still is) one of the best in Australia.friend of mine, just after T1 came out..
OMG you gotta check this game out....
5 years later, here I am.
I hate him
He showed me T1 saying it'd be 'the next big thing after quake'.
5 Years later im still part of it and he never played the game more then once or twice.
My gf''s mother was manager of Wireplay at the time. She took me in for a look late one night and they where all playing tribes, My first memory was of how fucking cool it was to be able to oob o snipe and just the visual thing of "zooming" and the zap sound of the t1 laser.
It was the reason i bought my first PC and got on the net.
most asked question was 'what team am i on? red or green?'
Got hooked on it right away even if it took me ages to get up to the switch on the training mission, and I was running it at 10 FPS at the lowest possible settings
I was a bit hesitant about playing it at first; I'm not a hardcore gamer or anything, and Tribes just looked like a run of the mill FPS. But then he showed me how to use the Command Console, and eplained about how all these guys on his side worked as a team... and I got freaken' hooked! I thought it was brilliant!!
I never did get that switch in the training mission Stan. It took me a very long time to learn how to ski. I recall [email protected] trying to teach me once ( we worked at the same place ), he was like "Just go with it, Booster... use the terrain, let it shape your ski run and give you speed, just follow the terrain". I was like "Ok, Chief!"... took off at the top of this bowl bit on Stonehenge, all intense concentration, determined I'd get to nme base and make a leetz0r flag grab... ended up "skiing" in a complete circle and wound up in exactly the same place I started. I was like "WTF!!??" , [email protected] was laughing his ass off.
Like others here, the reason I got a PC and an internet connection was just to play Tribes.
OMG such fun and so good,
Thx IE_REGULATOR hun..... *kissy*
