    Been playing this beta for about a week now and I'm trying to decide if it's worth the $30 preorder. I absolutely love the game and I'm really considering it but it seems a bit much.
    I've had more enjoyment out of Tribes than I have had out $60 games.

    Well worth the price IMO, I've played more of tribes than I have of a shitload of 60$ games COMBINED.

    And why when I try to launch it from Steam does a notification come up saying "You have run the game from an old Hi-Command shortcut..."? It still launches and plays normally. Does the notification mean anything?

    Wasn't there a guy that go banned because the game thought he was using third party programs that gave him an unfair advantage although it was only the steam overlay?

    Yeah, I'd be careful about that.

    2nd montage, with shit editing (Sorry!):
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4lULeNO7RBM

    Going to get Sony Vegas now I think, WMM is awful to use. Also wanna make a montage with more classes, I'm gutted I didn't record getting 3 air mails in 3 shots on my Doombringer

    Your aim with the Falcon made me so sad. It also makes it obvious why most people prefer it to the Nova Blaster.

    I have found something awesome to do recently on crossfire. As a sentinel with drop hammers, place them in the enemy base to cover all of it, just like you would in your base. It made the enemy so angry, they though there was a cloaked scrambler somewhere. It was awesome. It also made all the Techs confused as hell as to why their turrets weren't working.

    You keep everything you've earned from the beta in 1.0+, and if they make any major changes to a weapon they refund you. then you can decide if you want to rebuy it.

    Gee, thanks for the paranoia.

    Edited:

    There's no way in hell they could possibly think I'm getting an unfair advantage. My KD is 1:1 at best and I average maybe 400 exp per match.

    It's due to it changing its launcher file, it doesn't do anything but you can direct it to the new file and it won't say it anymore.

    It's a pain in the ass to lead shots with since it shoots so fast. I find it much easier with the assault rifle.

    It's likely to get a nerf anyway, way too good up close.

    k so, i preorded the game, finished getting 100% on sentinel and have been using the phase rifle... they REALLY REALLY need to fix the double shot bug(assuming its a bug). while its hilarious to kill a pathfinder in 1 second with 2 510 damage shots, its pretty unfair. not to mention 2 510 damage shots, pause, 2 400+ damage shots on a heavy is hilariously OP. though instagibbing(basically) stationary snipers is hilarious. 90% of them dont have the reaction time to move before the second deadly shot

    dont think i would still be playing this game if people didnt get mad as fuck when i play sentinel

    It's defo a bug. It's kinda of hard to pull off at times, have to time your 2nd shot perfectly. Not sure if they're even aware of it.

    i can do it consistently now, but not so consistent on very fast moving cappers

    Edited:

    basically after you fire the phaserifle, there is a window that you can fire again shortly after and it will do the same damage as the previous shot and it will also not take energy

    You have to make a shortcut exactly like the one the installer creates if you don't want to get that message constantly. I just copied the target from that shortcut to the steam one, in my case it's
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Hi-Rez Studios\HiRezLauncherUI.exe" game=200 product=10

    Although I haven't played the game a huge amount I've fallen in love with it. As asked above is it any purchase that gets you VIP because then I'd get the xp booster.

    I'd get the raider. Storming a gen room with 2 buddies that are being jammed by you really throws most players off and they have no idea what the fuck is going on.

    I thought one of the patch notes said they fixed that bug?

    Anyway it's pretty pathetic that you'd abuse something like that, might as well just use an aimbot or some other unfair advantage, just IMO.

    I guess I will, many people in game are saying Doombringer is useless and UP at the moment.

    they did "fix" it, you used to just be able to hold down the button and every shot would be the same damage as the first shot

    Anyway it's pretty pathetic that you'd abuse something like that, might as well just use an aimbot or some other unfair advantage, just IMO.
    "abusing" a bug is far from using an aimbot youre an idiot

    Because the unfair advantage you gain over other players is ok?

    No need to get aggressive I said it was my opinion.

    except with an aimbot i dont do anything but press fire(or use the autofire option) but this bug requires me to actually aim AND time the 2 shots perfectly while it maybe "unfair" its not even remotely close to an aimbot
