Tribes: Ascend

Anyone like the Tribes series?  The newest game is in Beta testing and I have a couple of beta keys if anybody is interested.  

Given that people will not necessarily see this message right away, I feel it is only appropriate to host a Tribes Haiku contest.  The two best will get the keys.

Yeah I just got my eyes on this game and remembered this thread.

Looks awesome.

EDIT:

Hey Omega...!

EDIT2:

Ok Omega... no need to give me any Beta key... I prostituted myself by liking their Facebook page and got one without writing Haikus.

Thanks anyway haha.

Sorry.  I didn't notice the thread.

I don't play Tribes: Ascend anymore.  The community is not pleasant and the game gets old quickly.  Since the game is free to play, you are restricted to classes.  Some of the classes are just not balanced (technician only gets one weapon and is totally reliant on a generator to use his turrets), others are fairly pointless (Jumper, Doombringer, Brute).  

Right now, I cannot recommend the game to anybody.

I'll see for myself once I've downloaded it. Haven't played any game online 'cept for Mount & Blade in years.

If you don't want the fun killed for you, avoid the Beta forums.  It's too negative even for someone like me.

I'm having an awesome time so far, think I've already got some skill since I specialized in throwing weapons in Mount & Blade... adjusting my aim for enemy speed and trajectory is something I already know

Keeping your momentum up is very hard though, really takes skill.

Don't like the hit-scan weapons... especially the Sentinels with their sniper rifles. I hate hit-scan weapons with passion, lazy developers Y U NO BULLET PHYSICS?!

Would've preferred if the hit-scan weapons were really fast plasma weaponry instead... you know... still pretty much a sure hit on close distances, but on longer distances you have to aim ahead of speedy enemies.

Game's ok. Pretty fun, but a very steep learning curve until ya feel like you know what you're doing.

That makes up for the 1 weapon they get and the off-hands that are completely dependent on a generator nobody but techs care about.

I just feel like their complete b**** when I have to calculate my speed towards their speed and both of our trajectories and the enviroment and then fire my discfusor towards where I think they will be, whereas they just point the crosshair towards me and hold in the button.

Feels so nice to blow up the entire base from kilometers away when enemy Brutes have set up Forcefields all over the place... all their hard work gone in seconds

I assume I'm playing the class right when half the enemy team gets pissed and hunts me down when I'm a Juggernaught

Looks like a new patch is going to make the game much more enjoyable.  I think I will start playing again now that I can have two weapons as a tech.

*play Juggernaught*
*rush into enemy base*
*kill everything with Fusion Mortar*
*free kills off puny Engineers trying to repair their base*
*Get Tribal Fanatic Accolade for over 20 killstreak*

Eff yeah.

EDIT:

And now I'm starting to feel a bit overpowered. Juggernaught is simply too easy to play.

Doing Infiltrator now. I get raped but I can at least troll quite efficiently. Backstabbing haha... so satisfying.

I like planting stickies on people.  It's even better when they realize they are dead.

I played for an hour the other day after taking a few months off and I'm pretty bad now.  In all fairness, I was above mediocre before.

Right now it feels like everyone parties hard in the gen-rooms while some lone Pathfinders are capping upstairs. I blame the Tech and its renewed overpoweredness.

One Tech can place 2 turrets and 2 mines in their genroom, and then camp it with their heavy Thumper (better version of the Soldier's Thumper DX).

Given the tight quarters of the Gen-room the Thumper is excellent. It one-shots Lights and kills Mediums in seconds with turret support.

It's such an easy way to get kills that I regularly see like, 4-5 Tech per team.

About time.  In the beginning, Tech was a joke.

Right now I'd balance this way:

- Reduce Fractal Grenade's active time, and reduce its damage to generators heavily.
- Nerf Juggernaughts somehow. I don't want to nerf their Mortar/MIRV since I want them to remain viable as artillery... yet they still own genrooms SO DAMN HARD. Maybe reduce their health regen boost?
- Heavily increase Juggernaught's Mortar/MIRV range. Right now a Doombringer can fire from across the map on flagbase reliably, but a dedicated artillery class cannot.
- Techs get 1 turret, they don't deserve more. Basterds.
- All remaining hitscan weapons should be turned into projectile weapons.
- Make melee attacks not so ridiculously hard to hit with. Seriously it's precise as ****.
- Infiltrators are the best cappers out there right now with their cloak pack and Stealth Spinfusor. I would fix this by making the Stealth Spinfusor not send people flying due to the blast. This will let Heavies block their paths and counter stealth infiltrators effectively.
- Make Prism Mines a viable alternative to Sticky 'Nades for Infiltrators. Make the Prism Mines cloak or something... fits in with the Infiltrator troll persona. Can put cloaked mines on destroyed Generators and blow up Techs that come to repair it. Eff yeah.
