About 3 hours until it's downloaded... god I'm Hirez's b**** and I'll buy EVERYTHING.
This will make the game so damn exciting again... the Jackal sounds perfect...! I love laying traps but dislike camping... now I can be an offensive trapper!

Joined a game with all the new gear. Just one inf in 12 man team. Yeah! Run over to enemy base as inf. Check again. 16 players, 7 infs. Launched facepalm sequence.

Then again, teams with 7 TCNs aren't uncommon either ^^

Remember the utility pack update where people got it for free? Massive storm of soldiers (which wasn't that bad actually)

It'll calm down eventually. Voted on the forums for the Brute to receive love next, btw.

Hey! HEY! You updated Sunstar without telling us in the patch notes you sneaky li'l snows! I've noticed three small but significant changes!
Hills in the midfield are a bit larger. Nice to see, but it's not that big of a deal, but still.
The forcefields at the flags now have roof! This is a huge change! The map before was favouring juggers so friggin much, but this means you can't clear all the defences from the mid tower. You can still do some damage to people moving around and it's still a great spot when the gener is down, but this is excellent! This also means that the forcefield will be significant in blocking incoming routes!
The third change is that there's a front entrance on the main base tower! This opens front-to-back routes when the gener is down! Yeah! Oh wait! The map still ends right behind that tower... poopadoodle.

Small, but significant and positive changes! This is how you patch maps! I'd still like to see a covered route on one side, where you can hide from snipers (though the BTX1 change may be enough), and some more field behind the bases to actually allow back-to-front grabs with speed, but still.

Temple still sucks in pretty much every way though...

EDIT: Trying out some stuff I also noted that they have lowered the death floor on the map (also in the gener room, yeah), so you can actually fly shrikes down there and won't die if you actually can get back up again.

Man that means they read the forums at least the roof on the flagbases was the most requested feature. Nice.

Holy **** the skins are expensive, no fricking way. The default Diamond Sword INF skin looks more badass anyway.

The weapon bundle is nice though. Will get that.

Yeah, they do read the forums. I've even gotten a couple of things in. Never saw anybody else suggest the class count indicators, for example.

Man I suck with the new equipment.

Takes way too long to fire with the Jackal. Useful for setting up traps but I'm way faster with stickies + Stealthfusor.

The knives are nice though.

EDIT:

I probably just need to learn a whole new playstyle though...

I feel like a newbie all over again.

EDIT2:

Wow... it's truly Genwars: Ascend right now... this infiltrator pack has made the game temporarily retarded.

Gonna wait a while.

I think it's likely I'm going to uninstall the game in the near future. I find myself being frustrated more often than having fun, but I'm addicted to the game so I keep coming back to it. That's a sign that the plug needs to be pulled (and my personal files deleted to keep me away).

As I climb the ranks, the maps have become boringly repetitive and people just fall into the same patterns. "Spamfest" would be a better word than "battlefield".

Think ranked servers would really, really help. In most games it's just too unbalanced and you either have to cover defence, offence and capping all on your own or you can just sit back and relax and win regardless. If not for the whole XP thing I'd just suggest selfranked servers. Pick your own level. Bad players wouldn't want to pick a too high level, since they'd just die and be worthless and skilled players would rate themselves higher to get an actual challange. The problem would of course only be skilled players rating themselves to low, to go on ridiculous killing sprees and earn XP and troll. Could put a scoreboard lock on it so if you get top rated say three times you get autopromoted, but... Well... the scoresystem is kind of bad.

That's what I ended up doing.  I would get very frustrated with the game, much more-so than I would have fun with it.

And the game crashes just as I'm about to watch my awesome accolades and ****.

Yay.

Man PTH is so awesome to play when everyone just cooperates with you.

EDIT:

Also getting the hang of the Jackal now... it's a lot more tactical than just point and shoot. You need a big base to make the most use of it though... which is something that Hirez evidently hates.

Yeah, the jackal is propably the most complicated weapon in the game so far, and possibly the best right now. I already love it and I get new ideas every map! I just really want a few weeks to pass so I can play inf again and actually explore this weapon!

Adrius is Bored, episode 26.

Oh yeah! I got totally owned! Over the course of like ten minutes I got killed there like three times! First I was just going in there and as I approached I got drop jammed and turned around to see if I got seen and backed into the mines!
Then I took the window and I wasn't really expecting mines there as well and the first mine just propelled me into the next!
The third time I just jumped over the two at the door, hid under the ledge and uncloaked for a second to get enough energy to jump up there and kill him, but the base turret saw me through the door and shot me and it kind of... well... revealed my location a bit... as well as nearly killing me and throwing me into the air, loosing all control.
And then... I took the other door, killed off the eight light turrets, at least ten motion sensors, two drop jammers and worked the gener down to 5% or so, just to get tech thumped in the back of my head.
It was a hoot and a half, really!

Our Gen was a fricking hellhole and I don't blame anyone for not managing to get to it.

Drop jammers and claymores and motion sensors and mines and turrets and thumpernicians and Jackal 'nades and prism mines and **** I don't even know.

The score is evident in the screenshot... if that defence had been on the flag at least partially instead...

Well I didn't care anyway, I just wanted to kill a few of the newbie INFs with their new toys. I got a few actually, not just you ^^

Yeah, somewhere along the way I noticed that there were several infs, even though I was the only one when I picked and the team "stabilized". Who joins a game or changes task without informing the team with VGS? It's friggin annoying! The team needs to know where you're at! Simple as that!

People on the forums complaining about INF skins with no sleeves, saying that bare skin doesn't belong in the Tribes series.




Yeah...

And that **** is effing epic btw. Would've been much cooler to have that medieveal-space style... more tribesy feel. Maybe not so extreme but... a more rugged style at least.

EDIT:

Hirez answers forum posts with style.

Quote:
...Times have been hard on the feild, No, Scratch that, Miserable. Every day, my team calls me fat, lazy, and useless.... I'm not. I swear i'm not... Lazy, that is,

See, I try so hard to be an asset to my team, I really do. But I can't do that. I'm useless! I can't do anything! My spinfusor's reload time, It's... It's too much.... My auto-shotgun doesn't even fire fast enough, and nothing in my arsenal is of use exept my fractals.

To pour salt in my wounds, you gave my latest idea away, and sold it to the soldier. THE SOLDIER! Why would you do this, Hi-Rez? I came up with that. I designed it for myself! But, no. NO! You spit in my face.

Why do you hate me, Hi-Rez? Why must you make me suffer?

Please, Have mercy...

...Kill me.

Dear #6177,

Marshal Gast, standing in for The Great Eagle, has heard your cries, and reminds you that mercy should not be asked for, nor granted among his ranks.

That said, it might interest you to know that command has moved the priority on your new equipment requisition over that of Technician #3452's request. As R&D takes time on such things, I unfortunately cannot tell you in confidence when that equipment might arrive. However, expect improved nova ammo, shield improvements, and higher velocity disks for your current loadout in the coming weeks, in advance of our major offensive.

Reviewing your combat logs, command is generally impressed with your dedication to the Heavy combat platforms, though there are a few notable exceptions and irregularities, of which I'm sure you are aware.

- Staff Tech Officer #5, for Marshal Gast

Be that was Scott, huh? Good to hear that the brute will get some love, especially the higher projectile for the spinfusor would be a very welcome change. That thing moves in slow motion!
