    It is fun when you find your role, but the devs have been forcing it into the competitive scene for a while now and it may show some in the general gameplay. Still, it is free to play so you could try it for a bit and then see if you like it or not.
    It doesn't show at all because basically all of the non-vanilla weapons are banned in tournaments, and the developers just don't seem to get why.

    Why exactly? People have no sense of teamwork and I'm not going to cap the flag at less than 200 so I have absolutely no reason to listen to the VGS in pubs
    Well, if you're a capper it makes less sense, you have a point.
    I often go 'VDC defend our flag carrier' when the capper is in danger. I hope at some point it was useful for somebody

    Yeah but the babby leagues... I joined a babby leagues server once and got 30k in like 5 minutes so 40 in 20 minutes is nothing.
    Double exp week. You can be a dirty player just for a handful of exp.

    Leave it to a foolish jackal feeder to not know that anyone can enter a babby league's game.

    I wonder if you can even figure out how it's done.

    This is a terrible attitude to have, this "everybody in pubs is an idiot so I'm just going to shut them out entirely". It's just not true. There are plenty of valid uses for VGS and people in pubs do listen, just not everyone -- and the people that don't are generally the people that don't need to hear it, anyways (VFF being the exception). If you'll listen to other people's calls, they'll listen to yours, and suddenly you have coordination between teammates. VA[C,D], VF[F,Q,R,S,T], VC[A,C,D], VV[A,B,H,N,S,Y], VS[anything really] -- all valid calls that really should not be ignored. To disable VGS and maintain such an attitude puts you on the same level as the people you're trying to avoid, in that you are working alone just as much as "them".

    And so what if there's a lot of spam. If you* would stop being so uptight about it, it would stop being annoying and just become background noise. Friendly banter is nothing to get upset about anyway.

    I'm not blocking things out at all, my VGS is turned way down so the constant noise doesn't drive me crazy, I can still hear it but it's much better than being shouted at with "VGCAVGCAVGCAVGCAVGCAVGTGVGNVGTGVGNVGTG" all damn game

    That's why I said "This is why you turn down the vgs sounds" and not that you should turn them off entirely

    I've had my vgs sounds turned almost all the way down since they added the option to (or at least since I found out the option existed since I don't remember when they added it)

    Oh wow wait, you actually couldn't figure it out? I thought I was just being snide and that you would be able to quickly figure it out once I told you it was possible.

    I think you might be the handicapped one and by extension also a liar for falsely calling me the same!


    Alright you ready to have your sand-filled mind blown? Are you ready to hear how I used my mad hacker skills to enter a babby league game as level 30?

    I wrote a GUI interface and backtraced the tribes IP to the master server where I de-encrypted their java files, allowing me to enter any game I wanted.

       Or maybe I just joined a game with my level 2 friend

    I don't know if I'm interrupting any sort of internet argument here, but what class would you recommend to a complete newbie to the Tribes series? I'm pretty interested in the Juggernaut.

    Other shit you might want to know: I play on a laptop, so going fast AND aiming well might be hard.

    How did you get to "It's impossible to join a low level game!" from "I would like to see this game of 30K in 5 minutes"

    Maybe I should have been more specific about you lying to a new player and not that you were lying about beating a bunch of new players

    Everyone always wants to make some dumb argument so don't worry about it (It's always about the jackal)

    I'd recommend pathfinder or soldier, soldier is just a really good all round class and is probably the best to get used to the combat in the game and pathfinder is best to get used to going fast

    And I really wasn't lying. I got 30k in 5~ minutes by going Raider and using the plasma gun. Baddies swarmed our flag stand at all times and I just murdered all of them. There were multikills and killing sprees and hot airs galore. That's how it was possible.

    Why would they make this horrid monster of AOE be so much fun, mid airs with the devestator are so rewarding too

    Look I belive is posible but, Im pretty sure making 30K in one match isn't something so casual. I mean I will smash the imp prnt key to get a screenshot of the match or something so....

    Where is your backup? Simple as that.

    I didn't get a shot of that game because what would be the point? They would just see that everyone was bronze and I'm gold. Who cares how badly I can slaughter ground-bound tribesmen.

    I do have shots of real games with similar scoring though.

    Here's 26k in 9 minutes in an actual game where it's not just destroying babbies. I think you can imagine that I might be able to get 30k in 5 when everyone is practically standing still if I can get this in a real game.


    Or this one. It was a full 23 minute game but I think it gets a certain point across.


    I also have 434 killing sprees, 123 rampages, 39 relentless, 18 unstoppable, and 8 slayer. That's just since release though, I played way more back in beta and I think I had 5 more slayers that I got there.

    I filled a role, I was practically a one man army offense. Not my fault my team didn't take advantage of it. It's not like I was killing in the mid field, I was actually destroying defenses. Seeing as I lost both games that also means I was at a disadvantage going up against a superior team.

    So can we all agree now that I'm actually pretty good at this game and I know what I'm talking about?

    I have plenty more screenshots if you need more evidence. I have over 89 pictures and most of them are scoreboards.

    Not that I care that much about how good I am at a video game or how good people on the internet think I am. It's just that the past 20 posts I've made in this topic have all been met with dumbs and hostility.

    I didn't post pictures until someone asked. I only started flaunting to demonstrate that 40k in babby leagues using the jackal is not something to brag out.
