    Is there an official story or do we just go by what the announcers say? My interpretation is that the blood eagle was just chilling out in their many brotastic worlds when the jealous pretentious (possibly nazi) sandrakers decided they deserve what the blood eagle worked so hard for.

    I'm going to save up for infiltrator just for that sexy red spinfusor.
    I was contemplating doombringer because of the machine gun and that deployable force field but as soon as i saw that red spinfusor i knew to buy infiltrator.

    I thought Blood Eagle were a rebel force that were from the Diamond Swords. If you're on Diamond Sword they something about the Blood Eagle being traitors.

    There is quite a lot of Tribes backstory, of which 0% exists in this game. It basically started off with a tribe called the Phoenix (later renamed to Children of the Phoenix after their leader died) split off from a galactic empire. In retaliation, the empire sent an elite taskforce known as the Blood Eagles to go kick their ass. After a while the Blood Eagles adapted to the tribal way of life, and associated themselves more with being a tribe than being part of the empire. Along the way two other tribes, Starwolf and Diamond Sword split off from the two. And then they fought and killed each other and all that stuff. We don't know when T:A takes place, or what significance (if any) it has to the story. I thought it was strange that Blood Eagle only fights Diamond Sword, though, since they are a more minor faction. Maybe we'll see the other tribes show up in some form, or maybe the others don't exist anymore.

    I really hate the patcher for this, half the time it breaks and I can't play the game for days until it decides that I can update my game.

    I loved the Starwolves, i wish they where still around :smith:

    Although there is SOME hope with that whole skin selection we've yet to see be used.

    Edit: Also just won a match of rabbit as a Brute, rage ensued.

    Just started playing today and I have to admit, I've been missing out on so much. This game is incredible; it's the most fun I've had in a shooter in a LONG time. My first few rounds went incredibly well and it was so fun and fast-paced. Loving Pathfinder.

    In one of the podcast interviews, they said something about how there was a prophecy that said the Diamond Swords, who are normally the most peaceful faction, and are pretty much supposed to be space Buddhists, would "strike too late," and so they're attacking preemptively, which is why that lady says "honor will be sacrificed."

    I heard some shit about Diamond sword being right into meditation and inner peace (Hence the "Sand-racker" and neat, pristine armour) and the blood eagle being a group of rebels, rebelling against the oppressive government, and Diamond sword is their defence group or something

    Someone was going on about that in a server once, they were probably just high or something.

    Technically, Tribes lore dates back to Starsiege, which also goes back to Earthsiege. If you read it all it makes sense. The Children of the Phoenix are derived from Harabec Weathers/Bek Storm, whose call sign was Phoenix. And fought during the events of Starsiege.

    75% of xp you get is game length, 25% is how well you do.

    so I'm trying to do the whole practice using classes you don't have yet, and I can't quite find the option. I chose training, but target practice doesn't unrestrict the classes. I must be doing something wrong.

    They haven't made all classes available in training after the class overhaul yet.

    So I got a beta key and activated my account and installed the game but when I launch I can't accept the EULA agreement because my mouse pointer isn't visible. Did anyone else have this problem?

    I love it when people have conversations with the voice system.

    Player 1: "I AM THE GREATEST!"
    Player 2: "No"
    Player 2: "I AM THE GREATEST!"
    Player 1: "Shazbot!"

    Guy on our team: Woohoo!
    Wait.
    No.

    feels especially well when you do it without direct LoS over a huge distance when it works like an actual mortar and not a crappy grenade launcher
    Oh God, that feel when you randomly launch a mortar into the air after watching someone run off with the flag and then end up hitting and killing them

    If your generator is under attack, just get a juggernaut to fire a fusion mortar in there. Clears out the whole room instantly.
