Anybody else playing?


For those that don't know, Tribes: Ascend is a free to play, super fast paced first person shooter involving skiing and jetpacking around at ridiculous speeds that came out of open beta today. It's system requirements are ridiculously low, so you won't need a super gaming computer to get in on the action. A rate descriptive review: http://www.pcgamer.com/review/tribes-ascend-review-2/ And a rather informative video WTF is Tribes Ascend though it is a bit of an out of date video, it will give you the gist of the gameplay.

It looks like the websites servers are under a rather heavy load, but the official website is https://account.hirezstudios.com/tribesascend/ and if you're new and just signing up to play, I'd like that you use my referal link to sign up (Referal linky ) as it will help me out once you hit level 6 with XP bonuses.

System requirements can be found here.

As a new player, learning your role in CTF is crucial. It's not entirely viable to be a fat capper. A great place to start learning roles is http://tribes.wikia.com as well as youtube.

If the game is too choppy for you to play, follow these instructions and see if that boosts performance.

I'll update the op as people post screen names and such as we go every so often. Feel free to add people from the list, it's always more fun when you're playing with a friend.

That's exactly why I downloaded this and it hasn't disappointed.

I play Pathfinder and Tech (occasionally Soldier or Raider) as SteveHouse.

Also, we should definitely note that while you probably could make a Pay2Win argument, there's no reason a team made of guys who have never paid a dime and still rep the basic classes couldn't beat a team of gold ranks, skill held constant.

Since buying the raider, I really haven't looked back. Suits my style of play nicely. If I'm gonna die, why not do it while harassing the teams flagstand?

Pay to win really doesn't come into play. Each weapon has it's ups and downs. Case in point bolt launcher vs spinfusor. Bolt launcher has less range, and curves downward where as the disc launcher isn't affected by gravity.

You did, Katabatic is a difficult map for me to attack and the one before it is just a giant choke point, Raindance is sexy though

Hi-Rez, so what, that means it'll be three, maybe four months 'til the game dies a la Global Agenda?

Hey now, it had waves of popularity.... probably adding up to a year's worth of decent play.

I really liked GA actually; I'll try this out as well.

Can I play it with that? I still haven't bought a new pc.



Not sure.. Wouldn't hurt to try. It's free and the download isn't crazy big. Plus there are million .ini tricks to get it to run better.

Onboard intel graphics? And desktop or laptop? You should be able to handle it fine. I've heard that its more a CPU intensive game than GPU. TBH, even on ultra the graphics aren't revolutionary or anything. They're decent at the most.

Desktop. I figured yes but with any new new game I wanna find out.

EDIT: So how does this thing work anyway?

What thing? The game? The best thing to do is to watch a few videos. Its hard to explain it because its such a unique playing game. Once downloaded, I'd spend a bit doing the skiing tutorial and then the target practice mode.
