so yeah, Tribes 2 is now back in business. I guess some geeks made a new master server after Sierra's got shut down about a year ago. This is good news as my absolute favourite FPS is now playable online again. I know some of you guys need something to do so let's play some Tribes 2!

NEED A BOMBADIER

NEED A TAILGUNNER etc

Holycrap holycrap holycrap...!

I've been itching to play this game for years! One of my favorite games ever. (even though T1 was maybe even better) As with every online game, T2 just died back in the day which is sad. I hope people find this and there are enough players so its actually playable. Definitely gonna try this one out! YIPPEE for Tribes2!

Oh man, I love the newbies playing this game that don't quite "get" it. A lot of players seem to just focus on their scores and get pissed off when the inventory station has no power. Spoilers: I'm in ur base, destroyin' ur generators. I can't just go out there and kill shit but I get some pretty good results when I plan on sabotaging stuff :D hehe

Downloaded and bookmarked. Tribes 2 was the last good game in the tribes series. Loved Tribes 1 a lot too. Despite its dated graphics.

Agreed, Vengeance (were there others? I've been out of it for a while) was fun during the beta, but it lacked some of the feel and fun that T2 had.

And seriously, how can you leave out "need a bombadier/tailgunner"? That seriously irritated me back when I played it.

The game is built around teamwork. You get rewarded points for repairing your base [generators, inventory/vehicle stations, turrets, etc] as well as extra points for capturing the flag or defending it. You can rack up a lot of points just doing that. Also, take some time [during a botmatch preferably] to look around the inventory list and experiment with different setups. I'm a heavy mortar and missile spamming kind of guy so I get the ammo pack and lob away, for both offense and defense.

Also, the most important thing you can do is learn how to ski. This is the only game I can think of where you can do something like this. All you gotta do is hold jump while going down a hill and it lets you go at incredible speeds. Also, once you hit another hill jump and jetpack to get over it with ease :) Skiing is fun!

Now I don't have to worry about computer specs since t2 is lol old

Yeah, back when I first got the game, you were hot shit if you had a NVidia TNT2 :) I was using some crappy onboard video [5.5 MB, 11 MB by stealing some RAM] at the time so my game looked like shit :P I actually had a hard time running it.

Yea, I wasn't sure what to expect when I first played so I just kinda started it up and jumped into a game lol. I got the hang of the jetpack a little bit, and seeing someone barrel over the top of a hill, blow up like three people, grab the flag, and jump down to his waiting vehicle and zoom off, all in the span of about 20 seconds, def makes me want to get into it more lol.
