I don't care who wins as long as it's not the Giants. They beat my beloved 49ers in such a shitty way and I'm still bitter.

Jerykk I would argue that the advantage you speak of is minor. Some people have huge monitors or multiple monitors and tribes 2 ascend lets you set your own FOV by actually typing the number of your FOV desired into the gui. You can say that someone with multiple huge monitors or a faster PC has an advantage and I would agree with you. But I really think the advantage of some of those upgrades is a minor advantage that I'm willing to live with.
The advantage is nowhere near inconsequential, especially since the patch. It's not enough that I'm not enjoying the game, but try to tell me that pathfinder's upgrades aren't a pretty noticeable advantage:

Armor: -25% regeneration delay, +10 energy, +25% health regen, +100 health, -10% mass

Epack: +6% energy recharge, x3

Nitrons: +2 nitrons (bringing the total to 3), +25% radius

It's a hell of a lot harder to outrun me without these upgrades. -10% mass means that disc jumping is more effective and I can accelerate more quickly, and +18% energy recharge is nothing to sneeze at. And 2 extra, better nitrons? Huge pain for any capper I'm chasing.
Are you sure you are not cherry picking? What about all the other uprgrades that are not pathfinder? You do have a point with the pathfinder.

its not a "problem".. you clearly havent played the game - you can unlock plenty of things in 2 or 3 days playtime, with no money spent.. the money and the xp unlock the same things, and its a very quick process

Sigh. Yes, I have played the game. And no, you're missing the point. It doesn't matter how long it takes to unlock things. Even if you could unlock everything within a few days (which you can't), the simple fact that you start with basically nothing means new players are at an inherent disadvantage. Take two equally skilled players and give one of them all the unlockables while the other has none. The player with the unlockables has a distinct advantage. This isn't really debatable. It's common sense.

I admit that I was wrong. When I first heard about Tribes Ascend, I thought "pay to win" was the name of the game. I started playing. But it's definately not like that. Everything so far can be unlocked through experience in game. Also the unlocks themselves do improve your abilities and unlock new weapons. In terms of weapons, the unlocks for those are not clearly superior to the base weapons that you start with. They are just different. The non weapon uprades do make more of a difference in improving your abilities but they are modest improvements. In fact I am shocked about how weakly Hi-Rez is stearing players into paying. I am also pleasntly surprised that after this patch, the weapons are pretty damn balanced.

Though after this patch the map changes and inventory station additions makes the jobs of Infiltrators and base raping a lot harder.

At this point I can only conclude that they cannot fix the blurry up close textures on the PC because this megatextures concept is not able to. Please prove me wrong. Do things up close look just as bad on consoles as on PC?

Bunch of fuckin Negative Nancies. What's it to you about Groundhog Day or NYE. Either participate or we don't need your stupid analysis of why this, why that? WHY WHY WHY. Pipe down already, no one cares about your critical thinking objectivity science bullshit. Some people want to believe in crazy nonsense so just accept it.
I can't tell if this is an example of Poe's Law or not.

That is the main reason why I dislike the whole notion of "groundhog day." It is just a meaningless superstition and people seem to get too caught up in it. Sure other holidays are based on superstition, but they usually have bigger components of family tradition, social gatherings, actual historical events, or other festivities. It is for a similar reasons why I never thought much about new year's day, which is just some arbitrary date when we decide to change the calendar. It has become nothing more than a justification for idiots to get drunk.

Wow, you must be a lot of fun at parties and a real hit with the ladies too!
Why do people assume that just because you have justified beliefs, based on good evidence, you are some kind pariah and people at parties don't like you and the opposite\same sex doesn't like you either? Why do you prepetuate this kind of stereotype? Why is being knowledgeable a negative. Informed is sexier than uninformed/misinformed. Personally I would love to talk to someone who has justified beliefs, I find them far more interesting, they can talk intelligently about all kinds of topics.

You two are hilarious. "What about my unlocks *cry*". It's beta. Be prepared to lose everything at any moment. If you are worried about losing stuff, then don't play beta'.


Oh come on. Even though I understand what you say and agree with you (up to a point), why can't I complain about it? Would it harm you if I got what I wanted and was made happy by it instead?

Sad thing is that there are people actually believe groundhog nonsense. What's the justification for the ground hog seeing his shadow meaning anything? What's the justification for the groundhog seeing his shadow at all? How do we know he saw his shadow? Does he know what a shadow is? Does he know it's his shadow? Why would we believe that the groundhog knows anything about weather forecasting?

I sincecrely hope most people do this for fun and I cringe at people who think that the groundhog has any forecasting ability at all. I do think those groundhogs look adorable though.

So what happens to all the players that have unlocked classes and unlocked perks and abilities to classes that are going away or to classes that are being changed? I hope we don't get shafted.

I do have to say that it is a positive change.

These publishers and developers learn nothing. The FOV is terrible. It's like I'm looking through a magnifying glass. When will they learn?

The demo is cheesey. Everyone is a walking cookie cutter stereotype. It's 2012, I have higher standards. This is pitiful.

CD Projekt gets mad props again. When I heard the news, I said "Say it ain't so." Now they can say it ain't so. I will be buying there next game. I'm glad they are no longer shaking down people like the recording industry of america.

Yeah id totally fucked over the pc players. And I really don't think they care. I wish they were punished for it but I really doubt it, I'm sure the game sold far better on consoles than on PC.

you like being punished dont you
Pleasure is more pleasurable after pain just, like ice cream is more sweet after eating salt.
