12. Re: Tribes Ascend Beta Next Month Oct 9, 2011, 05:11 Beaner
 
I like that they mentioned fixing speed issues and that the alpha testers said the speed from a stand still and momentum need to be better. Those are nuance things that made Tribes different from a plain jane FPS with jetpacks bolted on.

Some of the other things they mentioned are a big downer. I really really hate their forcing the fixed classes and weapon limits. Thats terrible. Its not Tribes at all. For those of you who havent been following the game. There will not be any ability to customize your armor to your liking. They will have fixed classes with set loadouts. Additonally you cannot carry certain loadouts. For example as it stands right now you couldnt carry a spinfusor, rifle chain combo. You cant carry a spinfusor, chain, gernade combo. etc. Lastly one of the reasons is because you will be limited to two weapons only. They are really screwing up the loadout system so they can cater the loadouts for the P2P model.

Oh and apparently a majority of the weapons are hitscan not projectile.
