Hi-Rez Studios announces an April 12th release date for Tribes: Ascend, their upcoming multiplayer first-person shooter remake they are describing as the "world’s fastest shooter. They celebrate the news with a new Llama Island parody trailer: "Tribes is all about speed and movement," explains Todd Harris, Hi-Rez Studios Chief Operating Officer. "In fact the community uses the term llama to refer to a player moving too slowly, like a plodding llama. So this video demonstrates the perils of trying to capture a flag while going too slow. The outcome is predictable but no less tragic."
I agree that they're going to have to address team stacking at some point. It probably won't happen until after they've pretty well finalized most of the class/weapon stats, but it does need to happen. Other games have managed it, and while it might be tougher given the diversity of classes and their roles, even a straight balance based on points or rank or something would be better than nothing.
