Starsiege Tribes Turns 20 This Week

Here's a reminder that the 20th anniversary of Starsiege Tribes is Friday, and that fans of the class-based shooter are planning a reunion event/tournament to celebrate the milestone. Here's the post we made about this in July: With the 20th anniversary of the launch of Starsiege Tribes coming up on November 30th, the small, but still active community for Dynamix's cult-classic shooter is gearing up to celebrate. They are planning an anniversary reunion event and tournament to run that weekend, hoping to inspire participation from other fans of the game and anyone else who's interested. This is unofficial, as they have the blessings of rights-holder Hi-Rez, but the developer is declining to participate otherwise to avoid creating the impression that they may be working on a new game in the series, since that is not the case. The Tribes community has set up this website as a way for new and returning players to get started playing, and the site offers this page to explain their anniversary event and to accept signups from those who wish to participate. They also point the way to the Tribes Talk Discord server as another resource. Here's a bit on the plan:
Tribes will be hitting the big 2-0 on November 30th, 2018 and we are planning to put together a 20th Anniversary Weekend and LT tournament to celebrate. The plan is to have a reunion weekend/event for everyone to get their nostalgia on and play some old school Tribes. Additionally, as we still have a small but dedicated community of LT players, we are planning to organize an LT tournament.

The goal is to get in touch with old veterans and new players alike to get as big of a turnout as possible for the anniversary weekend event and LT tournament. Currently, as far as organized events go, we are only planning for an LT tournament but if there is enough interest it would be awesome if we could get some 10v10 Base pickup games or an arena/duel tournament as well. If you are interested please register using either the 20th Anniversary Reunion Weekend link or the LT tournament link. If you are signing up for the LT tournament no need to sign up for the event link. Please share this with anyone you think would be interested!

oh wow...this game right here was the one that got me into FPS online. Up to this point, I had a bit of experience with classic C&C, telnet-based MUDs, Diablo 1, and classic Warcraft, etc. but had never seen such a game as Starsiege Tribes. It was played at a friend of a friend's house on a LAN and it blew my mind.

Such a wonderful classic.

And, like many of y'all have already stated, this game triggered a passionate love of technology in me as well, creating custom PCs, setting up a LAN, spending more time troubleshooting WHY THE F***ING HELL CAN"T WE CONNECT TO EACH OTHER ON OUR HUB, etc. ahhhhh such wonderful memories!!

We'd spend more time troubleshooting the LAN and troubleshooting PCs then we would gaming. And those beige boxes were ready to give you razor cuts as you worked on the system internals.

Good good memories.
