    I think so, it depends on yourself. Are you willing to spend money on a free game? Do you think the developers are worth it? Have you spent enough time, or will you spend enough time on this game to make it worth it?

    Edited:

    Did the servers just go down like yesterday? I had some massive score and we would probably have won that game and then I just DCed and couldn't reconnect.

    Edited:

    Also buy the bolt launcher for path? Y/N

    I'd rather donate money directly to the devs and rack up more playtime by working hard for my equipment, though. Maybe I'm just old-fashioned.

    servers are down for me

    anyone else?

    I did, worked out pretty well after I got used to it. Does decent damage with all the upgrades as well.

    So I found a reliable way to get the game to launch on my PC!
    1) Delete Tribes.ini in "Documents/My Games/Tribes Ascend/TribesGame"
    2) Open the launcher, reinstall prerequisites.
    3) Launch the game twice
    4) Open task manager, end the focused window (which will have crashed) and put the other in to focus.

    This sounds ridiculous, but it totally gets the game to run.

    From what I've seen it deals massive damage and the bullet moves a lot faster than a spinfusor. Of course as a tradeoff it reloads slower and the bullet arcs. But it still seems pretty damn powerful.

    The only thing I used it for was to get those juggerfats and the doombringers away from that enemy flag when I was about to grab it. It worked amazingly well.

    Played Pathfinder a bit, failed at going fast.

    Then I started repairing everything, so I just bought Techie. Not very rewarding, but kinda seems necessary.

    It's a great game, but kind of has framerate issues on my computer. My FPS goes way down from my SMG bullets.
    Tribes.ini settings guide
    You can nice fps improvements with a few setting tweaks.

    Getting rid of depth of field and Ambient Occlusion is a 15-20% fps boost in my experience.

    I have to agree, here. No weapon should be able to one-hit an opponent, but in most cases the Bolt Launcher kills Lights in a single shot. Same with the Thumper.

    Bolt Launcher has 1/3 the splash of the light spinfusor. The arch makes it not as effective past 100m. The lack of a trail is what makes it seem so good. As infilitrator I would rather have the bolt launcher then the stealth spinfusor, it is even quieter and harder too see. Its the best way to fight beowulfs.

    Also did you guys know that in the Beowulf secondary gunner, machine gun thing. It fires faster if you can just click fast? Normal ROF is 10 rounds a second. If you use a macro/auto clicker it can go up to 25 rounds a second. It means that shrikes get eaten by it, along with everything else that isn't grav cycles or other beowulfs.

    You will probably want egocentric, as Raider is a class that specializes in splash damage.

    My game likes to boost my ping for absolutely no reason sometimes. For example, earlier today I was getting maybe 40-50 ping, then the game just stops. When it starts moving again I hold tab and see my ping slowly decreasing from over 1000 back to the usual 40-50. Sometimes it jumps to 200 or 300 but thats about it.

    I wouldn't say it's old fashioned. I missed the days where old games didn't have unlocks it was an equal playing field.
    Plus it was less frustrating, anyone played BF3? I don't want to spend 5 weeks straight to unlock a gun I want.

    I miss the good ol' days, where you didn't need to unlock a weapon, but instead had to pick it up from its spawn location(s) around the map.

    But it gives players more goals to accomplish and the devs might get money in the process
