News Comments > Tribes Ascend Parting Gifts Patch

10. Re: Tribes Ascend Parting Gifts Patch Sep 29, 2016, 19:07 shiho
I've been playing this game since beta, before finally giving up a few months ago.

It was doing so many things right at the start. And then it stalled. And failed us - again and again.

One of their bigger blunders, which nobody seems to remember is that after release, they made the game unplayable on 32-bit systems. This is back when 32-bit OSes were still a huge chunk of the playerbase. Yes, this game is what, 4+ years old now?

So for about 6 months of constant crashing, 32-bit OS users were basically driven off. This happened because they kept pushing new skins and weapons into the game with zero regard for optimization.

Then, there was their horrible netcode, which is far worse than original Tribes' netcode. It was never fixed. The user community created TAMods, which is a memory inject that allows for many customizations never present in the game, AND fixes a glaring netcode-related flaw with displaying of bullet positions in the game. Indirectly, of course.

For years, there existed hacks which let you reveal other people's hitboxes. Some hackers got into the servers, and managed to teleport other players into the sky.

Choyseung (sp?) was the pre-TAMods hacker who implemented this fix, known as "magic chain", as well as a fix to the fact that Nova Colt firing rate was PING-DEPENDENT.

Then, there are their horrible non-dedicated servers. One day you have 23 ping and it feels like 23 ping, another day it says 23 and feels like 80.

There is no pre-tick lag compensation in the netcode. It is very simplistic, not robust at all in its error correction and movement interpolation, and caves to the slightest imperfections in connections.

Quake Wars had a solid netcode. This game is the complete opposite.

The game was lacking in completeness as a Tribes game from the start (no real indoor environments, the indoor/gen defense play became irrelevant, forcefields and mines almost useless). Then after a long long time of doing nothing, in the end of 2015 they released a patch which fixed some of the exploits, improved some of the balance (INFs stopped being gods, for instance), and destroyed what fun remained in the base game, by stripping it further of features.

It neutered mines and forcefields and turrets even further. Vehicles became free, because they removed the point accumulation system which worked just fine. People who are good at turtling-ADADing in the middle of the field became super annoying because they HiRez removed artillery strikes as well.

Since then they've changed some minor things in this patch. This last patch balances out the autos a bit better, so people can't have a hitscan gun and a chaingun at the same time.


The game remains neutered however. That's because that big end-of-2015 patch was created based on feedback of hardcore competitive duelers or whatever, who stripped the game down to being Call of Duty with mortars and jetpacks.

Watching the videos of the D44M soundtrack guy was depressing. He always starts off with a fair imitation of the original track. He builds on to it a little bit, and I think, "so far pretty great!"... and then he completely destroys it and makes it sound like rubbing sandpaper on your ears.

Doom 2016 "soundtrack" is basically white noise, stripped of the melodic content.

THIS is what a modern take on Doom soundtrack is supposed to sound like:

No, I saw it. You changed your mind after reading it, and decided to interpret it in a way that makes you feel superior.

You still started to get offended at the article based on the headline, which is clearly satirical. Great that you got it after reading it, but that you didn't get it from the headline...

Possibly the cutest attempt at Hannibal Lectoring I've seen in the past year. Ah, to be young again.

There is a weird tendency amongst some to call any article written to be goofy and fun "clickbait." I'm not surprised you're amongst those people.

There's a weird tendency among some to not read a post beyond the first 9 words. But I won't make any assumptions about you and will assume it was an accident.

Is there a better way to bridge the retard-gap?

Well, I wouldn't call you so much a retard as a low-information voter. No need to insult someone when they can simply educate themselves. There is always hope for someone like you, and this is where you can start.

Look into Obama Administration's scandals over the past 8 years (making a deal with Iran which pretty much lets it make a nuclear bomb, and lying about negotiating with "moderates" over there, IRS-as-Stasi scandal, NSA expanded spying scandal, sacrificing Americans on American soil in Benghazi and lying about it for weeks, reporter spying, keeping the press out of the White House, violating judge's immigration orders, suppressing our border enforcement laws, destabilizing the Middle East, the VA scandal, creating a new Cold War with Russia, removing Cuba from state terror sponsor list, repeatedly inciting racial division and attacks on police, shitting on America in his speeches overseas, etc), and not just the ones covered by Pravda- sorry, I meant CNN or Reuters.

Look into his past of 20 years under the spiritual tutelage of fascist, anti-Semite Jeremiah Wright, who blessed his wedding, and his other father figure, the radical commie Frank Marshall Davis. Listen to him morally equating socialism and capitalism, and cover for the world's most militant, backward religion time and time again, all the while posing as secular.

Then step away from the media soundbytes which compress Trump's message into two words. Watch a complete speech of his. See the man who speaks off the cuff, and yet channels the common sense that has long been gone from our government. An energetic, charismatic man with a heart and street smarts, a man with a message so much more positive than anything Obama has ever droned off his teleprompter.

A man who, despite vicious attacks from the media, which programmed low-information voters like yourself to hate him, and attacks from popular conservatives and even Fox News, outmaneuvered his political competition, outmaneuvered the press, and is outmaneuvering Hillary Clinton.

These are the qualities we need in a Commander-in-Chief. What we don't need, is someone who is knowingly importing Muslim radicals into our country, which essentially makes Obama the biggest homophobe in American history. If you can't connect those particular dots, look up Wikipedia and Pew research statistics on what percentage of Muslims, similarly imported into France, Britain, Germany, UK etc, and even the ones already here, believe that homosexuality is a sin, what percentage believe in violent jihad and Sharia Law, what IS Sharia Law, etc.

Hopefully this will help you in your goal. Get informed, and godspeed.

I will buy any product made by a Hillary/Obama/Bernie supporter, if the product is actually good.

Even though I completely disagree with your political views, I will fight for your right to have them, and all that jazz.

This used to be a liberal motto, no? Sometime a long time ago, I guess

I mean, if Oculus Rift had a boot-up logo saying "TRUMP 2016", I would perfectly understand the "outrage". But it doesn't.

I always thought the conservative cries to stop supporting various Hollywood people "with your wallet" were crazy, too. They're good at acting, I like their movies, they are just people and have a right to stupid opinions, now leave me alone.

I guess everyone's an outraged virtue signaler these days. Not sure how much virtue is in doing that, though.

Obama isn't a massive bigot. Trump is. People hate Trump because Trump hates people.

Obama got plenty of hatred, including loads from racists like Trump.

So Trump jokes that he would date his daughter. Or he calls some woman a pig.

Meanwhile Obama imports unreformed Muslims who believe that women are a subservient class, and homosexuality is a sin. A good (double-digit) percentage of those Muslims believe in Sharia Law specifically, aka stoning gays and clitoral mutilation.

You think I am being dramatic or exaggerating? The data on Muslims is supported by multiple polls. While most of the imported Muslims are (supposedly) moderate (and yet still their wives look like ninjas in public), a significant percentage is simply incompatible with SOCIALLY LIBERAL Western Values.

30+% of Muslims that France let in, believe that violent jihad is an appropriate response to someone "offending" Islam.

Britain has "No-Go" zones for non-Muslims. This religion, which comes with a bonus governing structure (Sharia Law) is the hardest to assimilate, and is responsible for the majority of current armed conflicts around the world.

This is because Islam is 500 years younger than Christianity, another Abrahamic religion which went through a similar violent radical period. And yet nobody can just "fix it" and propel Islam 500 years into the future, because there is no magic wand.

Trump is the one trying to put the brakes on the Muslim import process until we have a vetting process which isn't just smoke and mirrors. Syrian infrastructure is in shambles, so there are no records to check, and Obama's minions are not going to subject anyone to real psychological testing. Obama actually refuses to use the term "radical Islam", period.

That Muslim who killed 50 gays in Orlando night club? Not an Islamic terrorist, according to Obama.

So... one person is knowingly importing a good deal of violent homophobes and oppressors of women. The other is trying to stop it.

Remember that big scandal about the priests molesting children? Even though vast majority of them did no such thing, would you like to start indiscriminately importing thousands MORE priests from under the same general umbrella into the country, without any psychological or prior-crime screening, guaranteeing -for certain- that you'll have dozens of sexual predators traumatizing children for life?

What, you say? Yes, you would?

Mind you, the percentage of radical (or rather, "serious") Muslims, to one degree or another, is much higher than the percentage of perverted priests in the Christian church (which is 4%).

Based on his actions, Obama is actually the biggest homophobe, anti-feminist bigot in the country. He signed the equality of marriage act (because it was highly visible and showered him in praise), and yet he is purposely failing to protect the gay community.

Nothing Trump said or did even compares to the scale of damage that Obama is doing. And hopefully the LGBT population at least starts to wake up and see who really is on their side.

Stop only paying attention to words. That's how you are manipulated. Anyone can stand at the podium and spout demagogy about "fairness", "Islamophobia" and any other trigger words that you've been automatically programmed to react to.

Look at the person's actions, and the data. That's how you start thinking for yourself.

Yeah, I don't really believe any of that. You tried, so it looks like you're trying to convince yourself.

Well then, the resulting conclusion is that I want Hillary to drop out of the race for reasons OTHER than her health, while knowing that there are several candidates who are far more likeable and have better chances of winning than her.

Leading this chain of logic to its conclusion, I want Bernie (passionate and less corrupt) or Michelle Obama (a younger, fresher female Presidential candidate) to run, or pretty much ANY FRESH DEMOCRAT FACE, increasing the chances of Democrats winning, which makes me a Democrat.

Yeah, that makes sense.

In reality, actually, if I was heartless, I would want Hillary to keep running, as her campaign is circling the drain.

It just hurts to see someone get so strained and humiliated, with an EMT following her everywhere, having weird seizures and scaring reporters, fainting and being dragged into a van. She will probably have a humiliating health moment at the debate as well. She is scaring the Left, which is why Obama has made a desperate plea saying that this election is not about Hillary, but about his "progress", and that he would be personally insulted if you don't vote Democrat.

You've convinced yourself that Trump is a *victim* of hatred so this is a piece of cake.

If you've been following the news at all, all major networks, and even Fox News's "Kelly File", have been attacking Trump on regular basis. They also set him up during the first Republican debate. He has been under assault from both political parties. Even conservative talk show host Mark Levin dislikes him, and that nutcase Glenn Beck downright hates him.

In 2007-2008 election period, Obama has not been subjected to 1% of the smearing and hatred that Trump has been at the receiving end of. The media attacks have been absolutely massive, not just on Trump and his family, but anyone who dares to give him a fair shake. Most recently the Left has turned on their very own Jimmy Fallon, for daring to have Trump on his show and being "softball" with him in the same exact way as all late-night show hosts have been with Hillary.

I started fast-forwarding Conan O'Brien's opening dialogue a long time ago, because his first joke is always about Trump, often a skit that goes on forever, then another one, also about Trump, etc. None about Hillary, though.

You know how the media reported the violence of anti-Trump protesters who were blocking people access, yelling and even physically assaulting his supporters? "Trump-fueled violence" said the headlines.

Trump rallies received far more coverage in order to make them seem like violence orgies, than did the Occupy Movement, which was full or actual assault, rape and defacing of public property.

His rallies have always been filmed by the major media news sources in a zoomed-in way that hides the absolutely massive crowds he has been gathering.

Yet despite all these smears, Trump manages to continuously use jiu-jitsu on the media and direct its power against itself. He is an impressive strategist and a wise man. For a change.

It must be hard to imagine that there are people who are capable of separating the human from their politics, and this is a pattern that has become very prominent on the Left.

The second half of that sentence shows that you're not one of the people you refer to in the first half.

I'm capable of separating people from their politics, including the people who have trouble separating me from my politics. Try not to dislocate something with those mental gymnastics

Going by the previous two posts in your history, I'm gonna have to say that this is massively insincere. I don't know if you're trying to convince us or yourself but I do not believe that you are concerned for Clinton's health in the slightest.

So, you think I want any of her potential replacements to run? Like Bernie Sanders, who is actually more popular than her, less corrupt, more passionate about his (misguided) cause, and would have a better chance, if the Democrat machine didn't stomp him down? Or maybe someone like Michelle Obama?

Yeah, that makes complete sense.

I have seen old people in my family get sick and die. I have been with them, through the assisted living facilities and the hospitals, and seen how unbearable and miserable it gets.

It must be hard to imagine that there are people who are capable of separating the human from their politics, and this is a pattern that has become very prominent on the Left.

Complete demonization of the opposition, "2 Minutes Hate" has been working marvelously. In my city there's now a naked statue of Trump, and I keep hearing all these "kill Trump" "jokes" with a disturbing frequency in my social ventures.

Never in my life did I say that I want Obama to die or get sick. Nor do I want to see Hillary in this state, regardless of how corrupt and destructive politically she is. On the ground level, we are all still human, and the most important thing is our health.

But keep projecting your smarmy cynical view onto others. What a fabulous life it must be.

I am really concerned for this woman's health, and think she should drop out and take some serious self-care, because the stress of this election is breaking her.

I don't care of that makes Pence the candidate, or of it gives Sanders another stab at it, or whoever else - I have this feeling that Hillary should say, "fuck your expectations, fuck the money, fuck the promises, it's my life and I choose to live it".

But of course, she is not going to do this, and instead will basically murder herself, regardless of whether she wins or loses.

Hospitals are the worst. No amount of politics is worth ending up with a breathing tube.
