    So I have only played ctf. Is death match any good? I don't see a real reason to try to take out the generator in it and it wouldn't it make most defense classes useless?

    Best answer I can give you is to try TDM for yourself (once the servers are back up).

    Go fast, spam VGS and most of all, have fun. There's not really a wrong way of playing.

    hi facepunch i need some help

    i guess i'm having some kind of graphics issue, when i start up the game and login, i can't even see my mouse cursor or the dudes on the main menu

    when i started a training game, it looked like there were no visible textures at all - everything totally black, except for the dim colors of the lighting and outlines of mountains

    has this happened to anyone else or is this just that one issue that has only happened to me and therefore everybody's gonna ignore this

    Servers are back up.

    The launcher shows it as offline, just press F10, then play. You should be able to launch and log in.

    They refunded you (and everyone else) so that way you would have a fresh start.

    Yeah, you have to open the utility and then validate/repair. It's taking me forever to repair.

    It changes the km/h measurement to SANICS

    Edited:


    Fractal spam + Safety Third and the Heavy Spinfusor.

    I'm more interested in that guy who went 2861 km/h...

    214000xp will net you pretty much all the upgrades for every class, AFAIK.
    Most of the guns are ~70k XP, and I think the classes are about the same.

    I've had a couple games where that shows up.

    42000 XP for a weapon. You earn about 200 XP per match. 210 matches just for a weapon seems a bit much...

    Are you using "Janus Vesta" as a name? Many games/forums have a system to block out cuss words and maybe it's picking up the "anus" in "Janus"??

    I dunno.

    I usually get ~1000 on a good round and ~300-500 on rounds where I either have a hard time capping and/or killing people. I'm pretty sure they increased the amount of XP gained.

    Yeah, I thought that, but when I tried my alt name (which I need because of the 'anus' thing) it still rejected my name.

    Even at 1000, 42 rounds for one weapon is pretty bad.

    God damn. I love going fast.

    I'm getting REAL good at pathfinder. I dumped all my xp into him. Soon as I can, I'm unlocking the +1 grenade perk.

    Light Spinfuser
    Shotgun
    Recharge Pack
    Concussion Grenades
    +10 Energy Perk(Swaped soon)
    +Energy on AoE Damage

    Use the grenades to GO REALLY FAST. Its much better than the boost in my opinion, You sacrifice <=300 HP, get +40 to 80 Sanics and get an energy recharge from it. A well place one can send you really high up if needed, like reaching the flag at an odd angle.

    Using them to boost, you can keep some in reserve to catch other flag carriers, and its really easy by tossing 2 nades on the ground and hitting 220, using the other on him.

    The shotgun is really good if you can aim in close quarters, I take down heavy classes in 3-5 shots with it.

    If you can learn to use the bolt launcher, it's even better. Also you can get pretty fast with the boost, then use the nitrons to get to 250+

    And that doesn't include secondary weapons, weapon upgrades, perks, packs, armor upgrades which cost anywhere between 1000 XP and 12000 XP.

    I still can't get over the fact that they put in a cheat code to change KM/H to SANICS.

    Makes me love the game even more.


    This is the first time I've played a Tribes game, it reminds me of Halo for some reason.

    Oh wait I was wrong. A lot of (maybe all?) the new weapons cost 170,000 XP. Why the fuck do you need to play 170 matches just to unlock a gun. I thought the grind for tokens was bad, but this is even worse.
