22. Re: Tribes Ascend: Launches Apr 12, 2012, 17:09 Flatline

I was a beta tester and I just couldn't get into this game. It didn't really feel like a Tribes game to me. When I played the original two games, skiing was just an exploit that was very uncommon (probably became far more common after I stopped playing). Now skiing is a normal part of the game, so combat just feels like ranged jousting matches where players zip by each other taking shots until it devolves into a high speed chase where one is simply outnumbered. Now before those of you that like this playstyle flame me, let me just say this is my own personal opinion. Go on an enjoy the game as is, but I'll pass on this one.

You must have quit playing tribes within the first month or two. Skiing was known about and left in intentionally since the first patch.

Now, back in the day it required a modicum of skill or a script to perform, which was a very slight barrier to entry, but otherwise, it's been part of Tribes since maybe the first T1 patch.
