"This is where T1 is still better than T2. Renegades for T2 was inferior"
this is the problem with your thinking about tribes. tribes = tribes 1. t2 or tv have nothing to do with tribes they are just some pieces of software garbage trying to captalize on a good game. suppose you are a huge fan of jar jar from star wars. a real star wars fan is going to say you are gay because jar jar is a fucked up creation that has nothing to do with the real star wars as portrayed in a new hope or empire strikes back. practically, this makes no difference other than the fact you are silly to call this game tribes, but the underlying issue is that you are discussing an inferior product. its like when i went to borders and saw "The Message: the bible remixed". it was the usual modern "hip" translation of the bible designed for the young people. but when i turned to ezekiel, the entire chapter was the same as in the kjv, wheels within wheels and the whole deal. the point being that you cannot update what you can't understand. tribes was good now its dead lets all wait for halo 2 instead of wasting our collective time talking about this dumb game.
