Tribes: Ascend Diary

A new video developer diary for Tribes: Ascend discusses how servers will operate in the free-to-play multiplayer shooter, which is expected to launch tomorrow. There's also an interview on Neogamr talking about the game, and their efforts of living up to the expectations of hardcore Tribes players.

Not sure what other maps there are. I just saw the email today that they are adding Raindance. Apparently the most popular of the original Tribes maps. I wasn't a Tribes player, so I'm curious to see what all the fuss is about.

Don't expect too much. Raindance was one of the more popular CTF maps in Tribes 1. It was remade for Tribes 2 and just as popular. It plays well but a lot of the way that map played may not play the same in TA. It's not like its going to be a "wow this map is amazing" for people who have never played Tribes before. Hi-rez should have had this and maybe some other classic CTF maps in beta so they could test and get the physics right. Too much of TA is Tribes vengeance ice skating not so much Tribes "jump skiing" which allowed for more radical type of moves.
