@shingro It truly is a coming of age for the F2P market. When things like Hawken, Mechwarrior Online, Reign of Thunder, Mechwarrior Tactics etc. are released, I wonder what – at least in regards to the big action genres – publishers will do, because more and more people will be getting their fix elsewhere and for a fraction, if at all, of the cost.
@bowlisimo I think what makes Tribes different from other team-based shooters is that bodycount is not really as important – unless that’s your role. I dunno, it’s the closest thing to a sport experience in the online shooter bracket that I know of. Running interference and intercepts, midfield plays, crazy midair passing, knowing skiing routes…that sort of thing. I quite like the Technician class – always gravitated towards support and defense classes – so just working in tandem with a heavy class to deflect or take out inbound flag-cappers (most coming in at 200kmph!) is great fun.
Highly recommended and quite rewarding. DO IT!
