Hooray! The exploitation of selling beta access is finally over.
This game can now die happily ever after. Thanks for trying! You encapsulated 3% of the original Tribes, the movement. and some aspects
of the weapons... Where you failed, was you only cared to monetize on the weapon/characters and destroyed the game play in doing so.. You failed to realize that 97% of your game is meaningless to the actual game objective.

In short, if you love running around doing meaningless frags over and over for years to come, then Tribes is for you. If you think Tribes Ascend is competitive, you better grab the fastest toon out there, because only the flag cappers and chasers matter.. Everything else is pointless and irrelevant.

Expecting Tribes to be a competitive game? Nope, just a money sink off an old established IP
I paid my 15 bucks or whatever to get into the beta. Have had a lot of fun. I unlock stuff when I get enough exp. I doubt I'll have to pay another dime to unlock anything. As I said, I never played the original, so I can't say how it compares, but it is a lot of fun, so that's good enough for me.
