My point is that you dont see other big franchises like CS:S etc changing things up all the time because things are too hardcore for new players.

The problem is that Tribes has a much steeper learning curve than CS. CS is challenging because of the competition, not because of the fundamental gameplay mechanics. Tribes is just an inherently tough game because you have to completely rethink notions of mobility, speed, aim and cover.

I'd love to see a Tribes remake with a few tweaks. Update the graphics, replace the worthless ELF with the Shock Lance, replace the Blaster with something new, maybe toss in some new turret, grenade and pack types, get rid of the medium armor (impossible to make useful), make sure there are absolutely no vehicles whatsoever and voila, you now have the best game ever.

Unfortunately, that's never going to happen. Developers don't make AAA PC-exclusive shooters anymore and there's no way Tribes would work if it was designed for a console.
