For myself I gave it a month, I have yet to figure out a way to play it and consistently have fun. The potential is definitely there, which is probably why I keep going back every once in a while, but I'm not ready to fold Tribes:Ascend back into my daily gaming mix.

Ascend is actually a LOT easier than the original. Energy recharge is much faster, skiing is simply a matter of holding down one button rather than having to manipulate two keys and I suspect the hit boxes are more generous (though I might be wrong on that one).

While making a game more noob friendly may allow fresh players to acclimate quickly it also has the negative effect of becoming dull much more quickly. A learning curve will keep the game fresh longer and the feeling of reward when you finally do get a difficult kill makes the game ultimately more satisfying.

My suggestion is this: Pick a role and stay with it. The easiest and most fun for new players is the Juggernaut. Don't try to chase flag cappers or spam the opponents base. Just defend the generators. Trust me, you'll get plenty of action. After you've mastered that, start the Technician role. Turrets do serious damage in Ascend. Upgrade to two turrets and a thumper for yourself and you've got some easy kills coming. Just stay with your role, repair/defend. Classes like the Sentinel (sniper) and Jumper (capper/chaser) have a high learning curve and are best left for later. Focus on a role than trying to do it all and I guarantee you'll get better and enjoy it far more.
