I'll play it if it's ever F2P, the game isn't worth more than 5 USD in it's current condition and player count decline, they'll abandon it within a month.

List of trivial decisions Erez made that killed launch
>Trying to sell a bare bones game mode for $20 in a genre dominated by massive F2P games (unfixed)

I'm not even complaining about gameplay. The game is what it is. Which is whatever.

t3 is way better than midair. Midair will always suck because the meta isnt deep at all. Its just a game about boosting across the map and aiming. No positioning, no class choices, no secondary objectives. Theres only one thing to do, and when theres only one thing to do (cap flag, kill flag) it means you dont even have to communicate with your team. Its just aim trainer. Is it more skilled? Sure, if skill is literally just how well you can aim. Its a fucking puddle. No denuvo, free, supaaaa fast, and cant crack 20 players.

>>1211373
Its a patreon scam. With willing participants who love the scam.

Right. That's the essence of Tribes. T3 doesn't even get this part right. At least Midair gets this part right.
>it means you dont even have to communicate with your team
Absolutely wrong. Have you ever even played a PUG/clan match?
Cappers and offensive players disrupting flag defenders absolutely need to coordinate their efforts so the cappers arrive at the enemy flag at the same time the offensive players are disrupting/killing the defenders and knocking them off the flag stand.
>>
The most fun I ever had in Tribes was playing Shifter X and Shifter TG mods in Tribes 1. These mods had a regular playerbase with 10-20 people playing on the public server at most hours of the day for years and years, as well as organized clan matches and PUGs.
The cool thing about these mods was the defensive options available, stuff like laser turrets that you could cover with blast floors, blast walls or force fields to make them harder to kill. You could also cover the flag with stuff like force fields or blast walls. With the right scripts, engineers could deploy these defensive options very, very quickly.
However, you needed power or a deployable inventory to use these defensive options, and the mod also had very powerful offensive options available to teams with power, like tactical nukes, medium armors with six speed boosts for capping, an armor with cloaking that made it invisible to players and turrets (the latter as long as you didn't use your jets around turrets) for capping and base infiltration, etc.
In other words, the generators mattered. A lot. A team without power was powerless to stop a team with power. Skilled gen room campers were very valuable, as were skilled gen room defenders.
Over time, as the mods developed, the very strong defensive options like laser turrets and the very strong offensive options like tactical nukes balanced each other out surprisingly well and competitive play was surprisingly deep on a strategic and tactical level.
It's a shame we will never have something like this again because devs are no longer mod-friendly.

Yeah, thats the whole patreon scam. Theyre making this pure idealized tribes. No one plays it of course, because it sucks ass, but thats besides the point!

>need to coordinate

Yah, by boosting across the map and shooting the guy holding your flag. Thats the game, the entire game. There is no meta at all. There is no defense or offense, no one even guards the flag. Its pointless. Have you played midair? It's LT. Even if someone decided to guard the flag and go for a body block, that fucker dont have mines or snipers or shit, can just run two cappers at the same time and the flag gets out guaranteed, no offense required. Its a garbage game with no meta, no strategy. Its just bad, braindead garbage.

>Have you played midair?
Yes. I was ranked #1 in it for a while.
>the flag gets out guaranteed, no offense required
If you grab the flag, you're dying to the defenders' chainguns before you get anywhere near your own flag, unless, like I said, the cappers and offensive players distracting/killing the flag defenders are coordinating their efforts.
>>
>>1211532
>There is no meta at all.
The meta is essentially the T1 meta which is described well here: https://playt1.com/
>capper
>light offense (The primary focus for LO is to go to the enemy base, ask when your cappers are coming in, and try to kill at least one of the enemy defenders when your cappers are 5 to 10 seconds away from grabbing.)
>chaser
>home D (defends flagstand even when other team has flag to prevent other team from camping flagstand)
That's the original Tribes meta and that's the Midair meta.
This is the essence of Tribes. If you don't like this, you don't like Tribes.

nah Im watchin a midair pug right now and as I predicted they just run multiple cappers to deal with the hof who is essentially helpless. There is no offense at all. just cappers. Which works great of course, because theres no fucking classes in the game and the lightonflag just fuckin MELTS as cappers and crashers just murder him because its convenient. They were only running 1 D the whole game lol. Thats what you get when respawns are nearly instant. What traaaaash.

Enter any 16v16. Something like 80% of players play light. You arent special. In fact, you're kind of the problem. Only wanting to play light leads to a shallow experience like midair. And there's a lot of casual players who just show up to go fast and then get bored of the game in a month. Prophecy originally had heavies who were much more powerful in the first few play tests in not so subtle ways. They had sniper rifles and kicked the shit out of lights. The current balance buffed lights to pander to light players. They can now kill a heavy in seconds. If I wanted to tryhard tribes 3, I would play nothing but light. Because the community has demanded yet another bad game. One where vehicles and multiarms and classes and such can never matter due to how Op and fast players demand the light must be. One thing I hate to admit, is that t3 just kind feels like midair 2. And it is failing for the same reasons. There's just no reason to play anything but the flag rn.
>>
>>1212446
>walk away from something you don't like?
For all its asset flipping, bad direction, lazy AI art, shit anti cheat, Erez BS and etc I still really enjoy the game and want it to succeed. So I will continue to follow it closely in the hopes that it somehow succeeds despite its litany of issues.
>>
>>1212500
one thing is though, development teams don't radically change their vision unless the game is getting hammered to such a degree that they have no choice. i've seen it happen many times with other games, but it's a very slow process, and in that time there's a lot of flame wars, a lot of rough periods for the game, a lot of boredom. it's much easier to think "i don't owe them my time" and be done with it, or at least periodically check in every few months.
>>
>>1212446
There's difference between something that is inherently dogshit and not worthy of attention and something potentially great made into shit via combination of greed, laziness and general retardation.

I do better as heavy than light, but I agree that heavies could use some way to catch up to or counter lights. Chainguns having drop off could be removed as a start.
>>
>>1212476
Heavy armor is boring. It’s the designated shitter class. Who wants to shoot stationary base assets or mortar flag stands all day? Who finds that enjoyable? I tried playing Heavy and couldn’t even last 5 minutes before getting bored and switching back to Light. No wonder you desperately want to go back to the early playtests where Heavies were comically overpowered.
>>
>>1212861
>>1212476
Oh actually I had this idea talking with a friend where instead of mines you had a small directional wall that lasts for ~0.2-0.5s. If they hit it they preserve all momentum but in the opposite direction. Mines do fuck all because they are instakilled by even light weapons, so a different way to protect against the meta strategy of getting a big windup would be defendable by the heavy defense if they're super predictable about it.
>>
>>1212857

I have to wonder if they are just going to dump the game or try making it F2P first.
>>
>>1212857
tribes 1 had base assets and turrets and vehicles. Even tribes ascend had force fields, generators and other stuff that necessitated some kind of offense

If you want literally just flag play and no heavies, midair 2 is there for you.

>>1212864
Oh look, another speed purist. Go play midair you faggot, you wont. You wanna know why you wont? Its fucking boring as shit. Heavy is fun as fuck and it adds variety and strategy to a game that desperately needs some sort of meta to keep you engaged. Also, you clearly have never hof's while 5 people come to kill you and 4 cappers are being pinged. If you think thats not hard and fast gameplay then you are d8phxxvelusional.
>>
>>1212990

Depends on how much it costs them to run the servers.
>>
>>1212864
the mortar is the only interesting gun in the game right now

Heavies without base interiors are pointless.
>>
Greth did nothing wrong
>>
>>1211526
They should something like that in the base game. Modes like that are great because you can still contribute even if youre not a great fragger. Thats the same reason people still play TF2.
All of these tribes clones die because there is no base play and generators are worthless so newbies quit after getting stomped by people that fly, jet, and aim better than them.

T:A managed to be fast and allow for people who aren't capping to play via secondary objectives which made the capper's life hell like shields, turrets, mines, doombringer missiles and body blocking kinetic damage

>Modes like that are great because you can still contribute even if youre not a great fragger.
Yes, my clan used to eagerly recruit unskilled, new players who were nonetheless eager to learn - we'd teach them how to use the scripts that deployed defense quickly and they'd become very valuable defenders almost instantly.
I used to use the text chat (!) in public servers to teach new players how to set defense in effective ways, and when they'd seem receptive to learning from someone more experienced I'd know they were someone worth recruiting into the clan.
>>
>>1213435
>The best players were always either capping or chasing.
And when you make a game for the tiny clique of elitists, you get a dead game like midair, soon to be joined by T3
>>
>>1213436
What’s wrong with the movement?
>>
>>1213435
what a garbage take. Everyone and their mom knows that tribes isnt really that fast because the speed is all in predictable trajectories. Thats why every dumb comment in this thread bitches about how this game isnt fast enough, or the movement sucks. They all want to go faster and faster without limit until the game starts breaking in many other ways. Your entire idea that faster speed = more skill is just bullshit. Youre moving in a straight line, shooting another guy moving in a straight line. If you think youre such a god then go play counterstrike, a slow ass game, rank up, and get owned.

Or for real, go play fucking midair (you wont). Its a game custom made for fags like you who dont understand good game design and just want to go fast. I look forward to seeing midairs numbers not changing at all while tribes 3 gets a small but healthy userbase.Fucks like you always bitchin but you WONT FUCKING PLAY YOUR GAME.

Open source is great for a lot of stuff. Linux can actually run most games now, and I know their are some great open source tools. But do you really think thats a great solution for entertainment?

>Hey kids! Lets listen to some open source DRM free creative commons music!

Gross. People expect more from their entertainment. Updates, support, and for a game like tribes, nothing is really set in stone- its not some boring arena shooter- every single tribes game has been radically different. Ascend and tribes 2 have radically different iterations within the games lifespan even.

Just make Tribes as a Xonotic mod. Vehicles are already a thing. The point is if people genuinely wanted classic multiplayer FPS perfection it's available and free. Few play Xonotic for no real legitimate reason.

>>
>>1223650
no popular youtuber told us to play it. Thats the cold hard truth that people dont want to deal with. People, unfortunately, are sheeple.

TA was far from perfect, and right out of the gate T3 is already more polished, with custom physics options, matchmakiing, and not being pay 2 win (huge). It even has a higher playercount at 16v16 instead of TA's 14v14 (though ta often was 11v11). Its still fast, but isnt chain hell.

It is lacking for maps and vehicles, but if this took off like TA did, I guarantee we would get them.

I do hear one criticism that rings true though. "Bare minimal product". And I dont think that what they want is more maps, or more weapons, unfortunately. They want a grind, an ecosystem, a live-service and seasons. They just want lots of 'content,' they want a more social experience. Tribes is too simple and cant compete with todays games for the same reason arena shooters cant.


Ill admit, the lonely-ass no text chat shit really doesnt help.

>>1223608
Chasers are woefully under equipped to deal with even a mildly competent Capper running routes. I have no idea how you got the notion that Chasers have the upper hand especially when 90% of current matches devolve into who can rabbit the flag more effectively.

the actual defense should be chipping some of the flag offender's health down regardless of speed while midfield players are ready to finish the job
this fallacious repeat use of "mildly competent" is just obscuring your opposition of centering the game around high speed routes, exactly where i posit the game should take place.
you would rather cater to flag campers and fresh spawns..

>is just obscuring your opposition of centering the game around high speed routes
Yeah I don't think its very fun dealing with the same players ad nauseum blink grabbing while running the same routes game after game.
>you would rather cater to flag campers and fresh spawns..
I would rather defending not just be body blocking from inside a shield or mortar spamming. The entire defense side of this game is busted at its core because the defense is not equipped to meaningfully defend on top of base assets being down right pointless in 16v16. Reworking defense would at least help alleviate the issue of uncatchable Cappers and at the same time make running interference a viable strat beyond hill camping with a mortar. Who knows maybe mediums will have something to do besides dick about in midfield.

Deployable laser turrets for defense. They zap those trying to grab the flag no matter how fast they're going.
You can only set them if you have power, though, so this makes defending the generator important.

I would kill for tribes to have 27k concurrent. 27k players for an online game is a success story. /v/ brainworms obsessed with tortanic memes just cant get that through their heads. People just respond better to negativity.

My point still stands that finals does everything wrong or even worse than tribes does. All the reasons you guys claim to hate tribes for, much more popular games do as well. Tribes just isnt that popular. And it has to do with the gameplay at its very core.

And lets be honest, its just too fast. Thats always been the balancing issue. Imagine if in counterstrike you even moves 2x faster. It would utterly break the game. And we're moving like 30x faster. Its a ridiculously stupid idea. But a large part of this community want this to be exhilarating like a racing game the entire time. Just free speed whenever they want all the time. Its so silly.

I bet I can get you on my side.

Tribes doesnt have much air control for a reason. Same with midair, and pretty much every tribes like game except for legions. The goal is to have predictable trajectories usually. Without predictable paths, all of our projectile based weapons break and you start needing more and more hitscan weapons, or guess-base gameplay (both gross right?).

I do play a game called natural selection 2 that has amazing amounts of air control with jetpacks and flying aliens though. Its amazing fun and super fast gameplay IMO. You can trade speed for air control, and youll still have a fast game that will still have aerial combat.

Like wouldnt it be worth to give up some speed for a more powerful jetpack? One that can take cover, change direction? You could start having indoor levels with more cover, combat would become more dynamic. Mix in some skiing. Its crazy we still dont have any cool jetpack fighting games.

Its not going to happen with this game, ever. But if they actually make honorball, Im betting it will be something of a hybrid mix. And I think people should keep an open mind. Tribes failed here. But hopefully fps-z will someday come to fruition somehow. Its always been this enigma that you know should be huge but somehow isnt. Prolly cuz big studious keep making garbage like hyperscape that just fucks it all up.

Your post is tl;dr and wrong, filthy Redditspacer.
>>
>>1225840
Did you ever stop to think that the other tribes games are... bad? Like dont get me wrong, there are a lot of great ideas in there for the time. But every tribes game has died and there were tons of heated debates back then even- spawning mods, tribes 2 classic splitting off from the main game, Vengeance tried grapplers etc (hey thats tons of air control why didnt that work?). Then ascend tried changing up the movement entirely. But it still didnt take off. A lot of people crap on the final patches of ascend, but they really just went pack to the drawing board and entered an alpha stage of development again. I remember talking to the main devs on reddit and they had no idea what to do with it. Every week the game was wildly different for a few months as they tried to puzzle out a solution. There were some really wacky patches as they tried to take the game out of a death spiral. My favorite was the rapid hipfire BXT. God it was painful.

The entire tribes series has been nothing but experimentation and guesswork. Every single game. Youre right that the movement is alienating (im used to it, and thrive in it at this point). But how would you fix that? Increase air control as it is and all these easy midairs go bye-bye. And now you have to buff chain and snipers. Thats ascend bro, the thing that failed miserably.

It was literally the opposite, Ascend was the single biggest waste of momentum I have ever seen when it comes to re-imagining classic games. It took off like a fucking rocket but was blown out of the sky by Hi-Rez's incompetence and greed.
>>
Been a month or so since I touched it, but here were my impressions:
.
What I liked:
>Fast paced-gameplay (as should be expected)
>Customizable projectile speed inheritance (can make the spinfusors behave more like disc launchers or honor fusors)
>Netcode is a lot more solid than Ascend
>No more regenerating health
>No Freemium bullshit (for now)
.
What I didn’t like:
>Small player cap, probably due to Unreal Engine limitations (Tribes Vengeance and Tribes Ascend had lag issues that StarSiege: Tribes and Tribes 2 didn't)
>Two weapon limit regardless of class just like Tribes Ascend Game of the Year Edition
>No more vehicles or combined arms gameplay which is was what the Tribes games actually were at it's core
>Base defense and offense means nothing
>Strategy requirement and skill ceiling of the first two games is non-existent
>VERY SMALL scale compared to all the previous games including the already shrunken down Tribes Ascend
>Feels more like a class based arena shooter than it does a Tribes game, at best I’d say it feels more like a class based Legions clone than previous Tribes or StarSiege/EarthSiege games
>No melee attacks
>No Loadout preset options like in Tribes Ascend
>Can't recall while airborne (in Tribes Ascend you could suicide with a key press at any time)
>Limited selection of weapons compared to all other entries including both Game of the Year Edition and Out of the Blue versions of Tribes Ascend which when combined with a 2 weapon limit and lack of presets absolutely sucks
>Runs poorly until you re-add missing fields (I copied stuff over from Ascend and UT2004) to the game's user settings file and tweak accordingly

>And now you have to buff chain and snipers
No you don't. And you don't need busted projectiles either. You're a dumb nigger, Erez. Fuck off with your retarded fantasies about winning over the entire cowadooty playerbase with 0 TTK 0 aim slaughterfest. It's the second fucking time you fail.

Yeah. I remember msn gamezone for aoe2 was shutdown too. Lived on in IRC and mods and yadda yadda. T1 is, and has been, extremely playable. And if it was fun, Id play it right now. I actually installed and played it recently. It sucks. Its just not fun. You are not being honest. You dont want to admit some of the glaring flaws that t1 has. The movement feels horrible, the weapons feel horrible, the bases are simply not detailed and interesting. The base building is janky and shitty. Everything in the game is unintuitive and theres no tutorial. Turrets basically instagib you. If someone made that crap today with nice graphics and every fucking stupid feature you wanted, it would bomb, even if the dev was perfect.

Tribes Ascend died because the cash shop was LITERAL pay to win originally.
Then came the abrupt announcement that the game's development was closed and that they were working on SMITE.
Hi-Rez is the problem, not the series.
At a time when Steam was still young and PC gaming hadn't taken off outside of WOW and early League of Legends, HiRez abandoned a game that was in the top 100 at launch and kept a pop of 2000 in a PC gaming era where 2k players was impressive.
The only thing that killed Tribes was HiRez. First their greedy cash shop with p2w guns and later their greed to move onto the burgeoning MOBA genre

The reason Tribes is dead because it was mismanaged then put on ice for years, once your fanbase is apathetic towards the franchise its very hard to get them to play it and without players you can't bring in new fans.

If this was Ascend my fresh install ass would be in top with triple digits kills camping in enemy generator room.
But unfortunately this is the latest iteration of Erez faggotry where his 2000 iq solution to noobs not getting kills is to give boomers who have been playing tribes for literal decades free undodgeable midairs.

its literally just 20 bucks. And its 60 bucks to get tribes + both skin passes.

The separate skin passes are only for nerds who unlock 360 skins (36 days and at last 360 wins, or easily 100 hours of game time), and still want more skins.

>whales account for 1-2% of most playerbases. This is a known fact. If they all buy ultimate edition (2% of 2k is 40 players)*(40 dollars), that's 1600 bucks.
Maybe you haven't played the game recently but just about half the 200 people still playing bought the skin pass, Considering the UI and menu are ripped straight from Deadzone I can't imagine it would be too hard to slap a store and some already pre generated skins that those niggers will absolutely drop $10 for especially if it comes with the illusion of supporting the game. Maybe the maths not there but it certainly would do a lot of the people you plan to double dip on Honorball with.
>80 players buy tribes for 20 bucks....
if 80 people bought the game that would have a massive impact on the current player count. Anyone who was going to buy this stinker already did.
>Im sorry but you are just retarded. Tribes isnt going to blow up.
I never said it would, I said it might get like 1-3k players for few weeks which would be nice for the people that supported this game. Considering by your own admission any more profits made on this game are negligible at best why not?

That turd? absolutely not. But Tribes already blew up once with Ascend, it's HiRez that shat the bed and let it die from bad decisions and later neglect. Putting the blame on Tribes or its fanbase is fucking absurd when you remember how big following Ascend got early on.
Just go meet up with Erez and suck his cock for free, you are really not special for acting as a mouthpiece to one of the scummiest sleazebags in the industry. At least AAA execs don't pretend that their slop is a "passion project"

Ascend even got community balance patches and mods- (all pay 2 win stuff removed ascend exists right now, with various communit balance changes that theyve crafted for years).... basically what you guys all claim you wanted, and none of you played it.

nah thats bullshit. Theres midair, theirs legions. Plenty of ways to play without hirez if you really hate them. I dont know why you can just concede that fps-z is a niche genre. Always have to blame the company rather than admit people in general suck. Its just flavor of the month for most people and then they go back to valorant or fortnight. People hate jetpacks, and they cant handle aerial combat. They dont even play t3 long enough to figure out the nuances of why people like you hate tribes. They dont even install it.

And what is that, exactly? They supported ascend for like 4 years with regular updates and it died anyways.

>chasing trends

Smite made money. Thats not chasing trends. They got paid. If TA made money they would hire more devs to work on it, not abandon it. You think they hate money? Smite is as minimal effort as tribes 3 is. Im sorry youre just not living in reality. Where are the fucking tribes players? I see tons of smite players, not many tribes players.

You can go join the ta community discord and play ascend. It's been modded and has community servers. Its the top post on the tribes reddit. Its easy as crap to find out how to play. I dont like ascend as much as T3, so Im not saying you should go play it. But Im glad a community mod exists so I can tell you idiots to go show up for a pug and play it (you wont, you hate fps z, please fuck off so I can stop shitposting here)

They should have transitioned to F2P immediately after the game launch flopped. It was an obvious gamble to try to milk people for money up front and it failed. They're fools for not having a Plan B backdoor transition to F2P. The NextFest numbers were terrible and the game they released had less content than the free demo.

Nevermind that basically all the games they're competing against are F2P. You simply cannot ask money for this game when the competition is so fierce.

Dude they dont gives a shit about the few hundred buttmad losers who wont buy due to drm. There are drm filled games like the crew literally being removed from peoples libraries right now with MILLIONS of players. And ubisoft has done this before even though it didnt get press. It doesnt matter, people show up to play the games they like regardless no matter how shit a company is. No one cared to look up what happened to the first ubisoft.com when they bought the crew (closed and fucked everyone lol). MILLIONS OF PLAYERS.

People are not showing up because tribes 3 is a bad game. They dont like it. Your sale means literally nothing.

>>1257482
your sale means nothing. Making the game faster would only kill it faster. Not even titanfall could stay alive lol. Fucking retard go play midair you turbo nerd (you fucking wont, because you want hardcore mechanics, but with casual game design, look inward faggot).

Also, it wouldnt double the playerbase. Maybe a 2-3% increase. Anyone who cares about tribes at all has already bought it. I could care less about fickle players that want a free game and will play for maybe a week. Who gives a shit. Like the player bump for removing DRM would be some sweaty linux players playing in "support of decision" and then uninstalling and refunding (after leaving negative reviews for no mod support).

this has nothing to with me liking midair or not. for the record, i never put a single minute into midair. i didn't like the development team. knew a lot of them from when they were playing ascend and legions and they were extremely annoying/rude/full of themselves, and i saw the first trailer for it and was disappointed. for the same reason i didn't reinstall any older tribes game. im tired of playing a game where no one can make you miss. every fps game whether it's a br or cs or ow or r6 or afps etc all have some way for a player to juke you and wreck your shit, but that just doesn't exist in tribes. there is zero dodging ability. it's the same old design of float in the air chaingun then groundpound oh and try for midairs that worked well for the dsl connection days, but is absolutely useless and boring for the modern fps era. you say titanfall isn't alive, but titanfall 1 sold 10 million copies and titanfall 2 sold 4 million. this game will be lucky to reach 1 million.

it's already going to be annoying enough to play this game because the players literally never grew up and still talk/act the same despite many of them being in their 30s and 40s? but on top of that i have to play something that has outdated and unfun combat mechanics? nothx, time is zero sum and i don't need another rehash of outdated gameplay.

I hear ya faggot. Go play legions or vengeance then (you wont). Powerful directional jets or grapple hooks. The games have been made and are awaiting communities. The issue is what you want (dodging) is fucking stupid and breaks the game. You have thousands of fucking health for a reason. Stop missing and do some fucking DPS shithead. Youre asking for well aimed, well calculated shots to miss, and thats fucking asinine and players will increasingly depend on chain or other more reliable weapons UNLESS you just nerf everything (which breaks the objective, and makes killing not worth the effort).

Also, you can fucking blink, bubble shield, or fade ability in T3, which is essentially a dodge ability. So youre also full of shit. Also, have you tried managing your energy and skiing well? Jesus christ.

Nah, the reason you want air control is because you want this to be a racing game instead of a combat game. You missed the fucking point of tribes.

>>1258802
You never played ascend if you think that air control would have done anything against the BXT rifle lol. Did you ever even duel brolly on his stupid little hill with his nj5? Like jesus christ dude.

>>1258898
he made great music. Shitty thing about nepo babies is they do have good genes and are well educated. So if they end up motivated (long shot) they kinda do own sometimes.
>>
>>1259027
neither of those games have good aircontrol with jets either (trying to do so will drain your jets for not much turning and leaves you open for groundpound) and cooldown based abilities are no substitute for actual aircontrol with jets. there's zero fun combat in tribes and its clones, it's literally chaingun in the air, groundpound and go for midairs. that's why every other fps beats it in terms of combat. i don't want to play what dynamix or irrational games or hi-rez designed, i want to see a new take on the series. they've already taken a lot of liberties with the game, why not go further and make it so that it has fun combat. every other fps game has some way for a player to juke you and wreck your shit. if even cod mw2 2022 in its most nerfed state had it, why can't tribes?
>>
>>1259284
because the main way you take cover in most games is with cover, ducking into and out of it in fun ways. And in tribes, you are for the most part exposed for the entire duration of getting a kill. imagine call of duty with no cover. you just spawn and can see everyone. you would just snipe them all day regardless of their stupid dash abilities. This is what tribes would be if you added air movement with weapons capable of tracking that air movement. It becomes kind of like this sick DPS machine rather than a game about movement, and the solution would be to add tons of cover, slow players down, and turn into a traditional FPS.

in your fantasy, you want to keep the same combat, roughly (spinfusors). But if both players have air control, then they can start moving further away and dodging easily when reloading and press the attack when ready to fire. This ends with fights that take forever and neither player can do much damage until a ground pound, or if the jets are strong enough, landing far enough away to avoid even ground pounds (legions had this issue). You have to buff weapons, and there is no way around that. If kills are too hard to get and everything is some arduous duel, then players can safely ignore each other and just play the objective, the game breaks. A lot of people confuse "hard kills" and "skill". Dont get caught in that trap. Making the soccer goal 1/10th the size just lets the goalie sleep in front of it to play a perfect game. It's game design, not skill.

Also... blink is literally a dash mechanic and its already super OP. It can avoid a ground pound or midair and basically adds a solid 700-1200 health to a light if used correctly, essentially making them a medium class for free in a skilled players hands. Ive lost tons of fights to light players better than me as a heavy because of it. Like you basically want re-usable blink, which would basically break the game and make jet energy irrelevant
>>
>>1259027
>You never played ascend
I did.
>if you think that air control would have done anything against the BXT rifle
It would.
Would it eliminate kills with it? No.
Would it reduce them? Yes.
It would make it harder to hit people skilled at movement.
This is not debatable.
>b-b-but that one guy with top 0.01% hand-eye coordination
Someone gifted like that deserves success. You, as always, sound butthurt as fuck over people with good aim.
>>
>>1259333
there's a difference between permanent blink, and just letting us use our jet energy to turn with the jets at the non-capping and chasing speeds. you don't have to reinvent the whole game, and if blink is really such a problem then maybe they can do a rework for it. but personally, i do not find it fun to play tribes after trying other fps games for the reasons i've stated. i can keep an open mind for whatever the hell else they want to do with the game, but i don't want to play something that i already played many times before and doesn't offer any way to escape the same loop.

>Tribes is repetitive and isnt different

I dunno man. fuck off?

I agree that tribes needs to change by adopting elements from other shooter though. But unfortunately that requires slowing it down to become more of a jetpack arena type game with much slower speeds and no one wants to hear that shit. So here we are. Sadly overwatch is the closes garbage we have (not endorsing overwatch, its shit).

>>1259511
It would still ruin the game. We're kind of done with the bxt. No one, literally no one, wants to go back to that. I dont care about the skill or balance of it. Youre arguing with a non-existent group of people that still want sniper gods to dictate the entire game. Everyone knows that sen won the 4chan game by carrying hard. 1 player matters is gross and you should feel bad for defending the bxt. He can show off his skill in a better designed game.

And yet all those had more to offer the player at launch than nonstop CTF and fuckall for anything else unless you hard grind for achievements or paypig. It took Erez being embarrassed out of the community for Prophecy to even float bringing Honorball back.

They shouldn't be worrying about companies investing at all when they can't even onboard and retain the fucking customer to begin with, especially when the discord is full of battered housewives and hi-rez cocksuckers who tell anyone with criticism that they should be happy they get a new tribes game at all.

Well that's just the thing, what does T3 offer over TA or T2?

And the shooting is better. Bitch really thinks chain, eagle pistol, and snipe didnt kill ascend. Bitch really thinks t2 weapons feel nice to use, at all (they feel like hot garbage). You can put your fuckan rose tinted goggles away. Youre living in a fantasy world where TA is even a thing.

Steamcharts and SteamDB beg to differ.
You're either trolling or fucking retarded, you've ping-ponged from so many goalposts this thread that I'm starting to think we might just get 32v32 but only for Honorball.
>>
>>1268507
>youre entitled to betas now?
When you've paid for it? Yes. That's what early access is supposed to be.
>>
>>1268514
look at you being a little disingenuous shit. Bitch all you want I can play t3 at 5 am and multiple lobbies are going. Im happy, your the loser who thinks theres a major difference between 5k players and 300. The difference between 300 and 5 is far, far more stark and you know it. You fucking shitbag. I swear youre trolling. Or some butthurt australian.

You think I give a shit about 32v32? I already played battlebit a year ago and experienced the soul crushing pointlessness of large scale battles. I went back and played ps2 and was reminded of the crappy imbalance inherit to games like that. I played 7v7 tribes and it was nonstop action with no downtime, nothing but fighting for my life. Large player counts are bullshit, all you need is mmr for better tribes.
>>
>>1268522
you didnt pay for a beta you dolt. Nowhere did it say you were paying for that. Thats just bullshit you made up.

Riddle me this, if they charged you an extra 5 bucks to be in a paid beta would you be happy? No, you'd be livid cuz you just want free access. You have no principles. Just another shitbag human. I hope someone rips your dumb ass off. You believe in NOTHING

>>1268527

It was nice but nothing major. Mostly sensible, minor balance changes. There might be new weapons, class perks, and packs added/removed but nothing looks final yet and most of the new stuff is buggy, unpolished, or imbalanced. I dont even wat to say specifics or post patch notes cuz it really does all look subject to change.

I dont think theyre looking to continue evolving the game beyond what t3 already kind of is.wvj2w

This is a really late reply but I wanted to share my experience for anyone who might still be interested:

Steam will refund a game beyond 2 hours/14 days.
I had 30 hours in Boulder's Gate 3.
Hated the game and requested a refund thru the typical channel. AI auto denied my refund.
I then directly contacted support and opened a ticket.
I explained the situation, offered to accept steam in store credit and highlighted my understanding that this was a special request against standard policy.
It took me about 5 messages. On support staff agent even closed the original ticket and I opened a new one (feigning offense).
I kept it respectful and stayed calm and logical. I just appealed to the need for an exception, my 10+ years old account, the amount I've spent and the fact that I was considering buying a Steam Deck (true for me, but prob still works if you lie).

Ultimately I did get a steam store credit refund despite 30 hours.
For me it was worth the effort, but I also imagine I won't get far by trying such a move again for a while.

In a case like a game like Tribes 3, I'd try for it for two reasons: 1 you have a good chance arguing your case due to how fast the game failed. And 2 its worth fighting for even just a store credit to give the middle finger to Hi-Rez out of pure spite, because fuck them for making such a trash game.
>>

>your

>large playercounts are bullshit but Tribes 3 totally has 300 players (even at the time of the post this wasn't true according to steamcharts)
With less than 200 players you're essentially just playing pickup-games-but-with-extra-steps-disguised-as-matchmaking, especially considering how often you run into not just the same individual players but the same groups (i.e. teams) of players.
>>
>>1282874
So, what youre saying... is that tribes isnt popular? Wow, hot take.

I guess this means I cant play it at all. Oh wait, I can.
>>
the sports game "ultra strikers" is semi-open having playtests if anyone wants to try a bad version of fortnight. Its nothing like tribes tho. No jetpacks, no skiiing. Honestly has no fun or interesting ideas and plays like literally any other hero shooter, but with a ball. Honestly just feels like a deathmatch.

I'll jump back for F2P. I was never going to pay for it when I knew it was such a low effort release and DOA. Plus I really did not enjoy the beta test.

For a real developer that takes their work seriously shitting out minimum effort prototypes at such a rapid pace and low cost would be an impressive achievement but considering how
1. They shitcan their abortions faster than they develop them never refining whatever raw demos they have into something worthwhile;
2. They go to more and more extremes in costs cutting to the point of making it look worse than untextured white walls;
3. None of it is REALLY low cost and they lose fucktons of money developing this trash;
I can't help but laugh at how cheap, sloppy and soulless it looks.

I had modern games so much it's unreal. Why cannot we not just have a $60.00 game, without retarded early access, with visual consistency in the skins, without microtrannies, and with a complete, polished game being sold to us. Or give us the GOTY package that Tribes: Ascend had that unlocked almost everything. F2P has largely been a cancer to video games, and has only served as a guise for nickle-and-dimming people. Very few games actually do it well, and the ones which do would still have been better off as $60.00.

Even if he's only paying 5 real people to work on it, that still means tribes barely breaks even or makes such a meager profit it cant fund another month of devtime. The steamdb checks out on copies sold (roughly). Youre fooling yourself if you think this isnt all just smite money.

>>1298323
Theres two sides to it. Plenty of hard working devs have lost their jobs through no fault of their own. Imagine if your job was a coin flip as to whether you get paid or not. We didnt fund tribes 3, someone else did. Worse, crowdfunding is rife with scams, we're worse at making complete games than they are (lol). The only reason we have games at all is all thanks to ruthless, greedy, corporate assholes willing to take risks. Communism wont make games. Xonotic just wasnt what we wanted. We wanted helldivers or palworld or fortnight. We dont know what we want, so they dont know what we want. We suck.

Sometimes I think maybe we need to end the game machine. The game grinder. More games, new games. Games games games. Ultra strikers really does feel so unnecessary, not because theres anything wrong with it. Its fine.... I just have enough games. At one point this has to end.

I just hope it doesnt end with every game genre being condensed into the GTA7 game engine.

Nah, thats just spin. All these game companies are laying off massive amounts of devs as the game industry consolidates and splinters in various ways. Ive come to realize that prophecy was spun off from hirez because they were all essentially 'fired' from hirez (which now exists to update smite at best). These games: ultra strikers, tribes... are them being given a year or two to lay another golden egg, a 'smite' for their overlords.

Basically, these devs are just kind of getting desperate and you can expect a lot of erratic behavior, short sighted decisions, etc. They probably already understand (like in most places where staff are being squeezed) that they are increasingly unwanted. So if they see a post for another game in their reddit or whatever, you can expect a lot of increasingly immature behavior. We're probably witnessing the death of hirez as it existed. Unless they make a hit game lol.
>>
>>1321687
>We're probably witnessing the death of hirez as it existed
And nothing of value was lost
>>
>>1322591
maybe. but you should probably think about whats going to replace them. It looks like we now get thousands of low effort 1 man games that fall short of being good, and big budget games that absolutely hate the player. Midsize devs like this are important because they do take risks, and they can make more competent products with less jank and less evil business models.

Like their are multiple indie games with fast movement, and their are tons of big budget games with movement mechanics, but none of them even come close to something like tribes. I hate activision and ubsisoft far more than I hate hirez, is all.

----------------

Also, the next update for t3 may well have a t2 style map added. Its massive and has a huge underground base with multiple gravlifts and tunnels that go halfway across the map. I played the playtest. Its like a combination of DX and blueshift. The lead dev also teased maybe adding a grappler- though he was adamant that it may not happen at all.

I bet you stupid erez cum guzzling faggots are the reason this update is taking so long to come out in the first place. Fuck Prophecy for even doing another PTR after the early access launch to begin with, it's a waste of my money to pay for EA at all. Fuck you too

I really don't care. "Tribes 3" is a faint shadow of the scope of T1/T2. I didn't jerk off to skiing as a 11 year old. I jerked off to the idea of blowing up a satchel charge in the generator room after driving in on a grav bike.

This is so far removed from what this bullshit is

KikeRez were the kings of slurping up lefttovers of big cash cows' gravy train and their absence is for the better. These faggots never took any risks, only reinforced the shitty fad meta.

No vehicles. The maps are smaller. Projectiles are much faster. There are less gameplay modes. New thing is a mode called "Honorball" that is about throwing balls into hoops on a small map. That's about it.

>could they just kick him out?
Hi Rez isn't publicly traded and I am to lazy to look for what percentage of the company he actually owns but its quite possible if he has share holders with a larger stake but I doubt it. I am more inclined to believe that he came to realization that he was a walking PR nightmare actively hurting the games Hi Rez works on and he stepped down or some variation of that considering every single Hi Rez game community openly and very vocally loathes the man. Assuming Anon is correct I would wager he's probably at Prophecy to provide leadership and because it gives him something to do other than collect a check.
>>
>>1323478
What's funny is they didn't even execute skiing/movement well, at all - the game's poor movement is one of its biggest weaknesses.
To focus on CTF mechanics then make the movement shitty is baffling.
