What irritates me about the de-evolving of Tribes. Is the panderage to the cap whore. Note: there's only one flag to cap so everyone can't have they're "Look at me...Look at me" moment.
T:V is a defender's nightmare, flags sitting out there like a hooker selling her wares, cap whores skiing in and snagging the flag before turrets even wake up. It's quite draining. Defenders are effectively relegated to chasing the carrier, which is almost pointless if they have a good route, this is due to the tiny maps.
Agreed. And keep in mind that people dont have the best skiing routes for capping yet, so it will be even worse on those maps in the future.
Still, I like LD the most. I found that LO got extremely boring because of this fast paced crap. You grab the flag and in 5 to 20 seconds (smallest to biggest map) you got it captured. Yay, challenging.
Right now I love sniping because its really hard to hit moving targets. I love sniping people who are barely visible and think they are invulerable because they jump around a bit. Even defense sniping is quite nice to do. Though, if you dont hit him, you will be there without energy and no chance of chasing him fast enough. The best thing is popping the enemy flag capturer right before he caps the flag and then quickly returning the flag. had my best laughs out of that, especially when hes being arrogant. Its funny to see how people suddenly shut up completely after spamming "Woohoo", "Nyah Nyah", "You Idiot" etc. all the time.
I liked desert of death. Its was pretty big and skiing was fun there. I remember getting lost a few times in my newbie days.
On top of that, for some foolish reason, the devs decide to nerf the jets EVEN more.
Uhhh, I thought that the lights jets were pretty weak already... I have to try that out... sounds horrible...
On the other hand, especially on smaller maps a less strong jetpack is good since cappers cant just jet up, press their energypack rockets and when they touch the ground again, they land on their own flag stand. Still, they already nerfed the light extremely, and light was always my favorite because of its agility and speed. I too think they should nerf the mediums and heavies instead of lights... but as they wrote, they want to make the mediums more user friendly... they are harder to kill now as a light, but they are far too fast. When I started playing T:V and didnt notice that I was medium instead of light when I respawned, I didnt even notice that the medium was slower or less agile at all.
Did they decrease the falling damage?
I'm not... gonna... cry... you... dumb... doo-doo brain!
I have given up on waiting for BIS to come back to their senses and do a real ArmA 2 successor.
