Guess I'll buy this in 6 months time, when the game costs less, is bundled with all the DLC to make it an 'Actual' Simcity game (subways, thermoforming), and when all the bugs are fixed and standard features are implemented

Yeah I was hoping it was a BattleZone reboot also.

Bad move, naming it Battlezone. I was disappointed as well seeing it wasn't releated to the seminal Battlezone series.

Good point, I was rather disappointed also, and just switched off!

Wow, I've totally forgotten about this game. Does anyone play this?
I remember playing the beta or something, was fun if I remember, but I think BFBC2 was out at the time and also http://battlefield.play4free.com/ is better.

Anyway for free to play games, I'm totally hooked on Tribes Ascend, good old T2 (ish) action.

This is great news. I adored the original games, and I think remakes should keep as close to the format of the originals as possible IMHO.

Now all I want is a studio to do this very same thing with Syndicate. We are gerting some FPS shit remake, now we need the real top down perspective remake! Please please please....

slightly off-topic: One thing about Vengeance that I thought was a great addition was the grappling hook. It was a skill that could be developed to allow one to change direction quickly. It wasn't unbalanced and it seemed to fit well within Tribes-style gameplay. I'd love to see something similar included in Ascend

Wasn't unbalanced? Are you kidding? It was horribly unbalanced and totally screwed chasers. Tribes is all about momentum and the ability to predict your opponent's movements based on things like speed and trajectory. When your opponent can instantly and drastically change direction, that makes things exponentially more difficult for chasers. In fact, unless the chaser also carried the grappler, he was screwed because there was no way he could change direction as quickly as cappers. Then there was also the ability for cappers to grapple to something and then just fly circles around it forever, making it much harder to hit them and causing stalemates to drag on much longer.

Tribes is about skill, right? I'm going on the assumption that people rise to a challenge. Also, maybe I didn't pay attention but some of the scenarios you mention I never saw (and I played quite a bit of Vengeance MP).

Anyhow. it more than likely wont be in so no use in arguing

Just took the time to read these replies.
Yes interesting on the mechanics of the grapple, but yes I'm assuming its not going to be features in this game.

What I do not want to see but I'm sure it will be in the game,due to Ascend being free to play, is unlocks for weapons, items amour packs etc. They are featured heavily in games like Call of Duty and Battlefield series, but they do not belong in Tribes.

Man that was amazing, much longer than the other "meet the ..." spots, but really cool!

In my opinion it just shows you how much work they have put into the characters presentation in the game, voice, appearance and behaviour (i.e. what they say in the different emote commands etc)that this must clip have been easy for them to create.

I almost kinda want them to make a little movie / webisodes of these TF2 characters, getting up to trouble :-).

Hi Mag,

I'm in total agreement with your understanding, by the description its obvious that this will slow the target down or imoblise them for a few seconds, like woah ok I'm a sniper regular in TF2 so this would be like just extra fun ... for snipers I dont know about the rest of the classes...
