so this is in open beta now. that means all y'all can play.

i've played it a bit and unlocked a few classes (sentinel, infiltrator, technician) but it seems like there's some pretty huge balancing issues. some weapons are just stupidly overpowered (that god damn grenade launcher raiders get for one). and when you're just starting out everything is a huge uphill battle. people that have been playing for a while (or have dropped actual dollars on it-- about $8 per weapon, $2.50 per class) have much better shit than you. and with the 400-800xp you get per round that's something like 170 rounds to get the 100,000xp necessary to unlock a weapon.

so if you like losing a lot and grinding endlessly and raging at bullshit for hours on end this game's for you!

Aside from the super heavy perk, my main class is Juggernaut with the default loadout. Things you have right away. Getting the xp to upgrade those is also not very difficult, especially if you go for the EXP medals right away. I typically do pretty well [as far as kills go, I get mid to top place each round]. Also, the people you start out playing with are absolute retards, because the matches put you with people your rank. Starting out for me it was a bit unfair 'cause I've been playing a heavy class since Tribes 1 came out, so I already knew how the game was supposed to work. I'm almost rank 19 now. Haven't been able to play as much as I'd have liked, otherwise I think I'd have a gold badge by now.

I'm really liking what the game's turned into so far, really all I need is a few new maps [and a map editor!!!!] and I would love to have the bomber and heavy transport back from Tribes 2. This is still the most fun I've had playing a game for the last year or so.

The Jackal gun looks so OP to me right now.

Hi, Omega here. I play pathfinder and doombringer in Tribers:ascend. You need a heavy anti-tank/chaingun defender or faster-than-motor boat flag tagger, well I'm your man.

so infiltrator update is live. jackal is stupid overpowered. especially considering you can fire it without breaking stealth.

also it's $20 for the infiltrator pack. does that seem ludicrous to anyone else? pay $20 and get an I WIN button?

I've been playing since about the game was released (Name: Hexenmeister), and I am still not great. I can grab and occasionally even cap a flag, and I do well in base defense. I think my hardware hold me back a bit, because even after stripping down the graphics and the HUD, my frame rate can get pretty choppy. So sniping is certainly out of the question.
