    Because progress carries over into release. Chances are if they were to make all weapons easy to get, they would do a softwipe (like WOT).
    That's when I stopped playing WoT. Without the weekly gold, getting back the stuff that got wiped would take months.

    There's nothing pay2win about expensive weapons as long as they're side-grades. Even if they take 500 hours to unlock they are still just a personal choice thing.

    The issue is how so many vanilla weapons are blatantly worse than the paid ones, eg. the jackal and stealth sf shit on the rhino smg.

    I think they would be better off giving the stealth spinfusor as the default weapon. Not because it is better, but because it is much easier to handle for newer players.

    The new infilitrator weapons are fun as hell. I like the knives, they feel like a better version of the Nova Blaster, they move faster like the blaster should. Also the Jackal is awesome for boosting, you can boost 3 times with ego centric. The return of infilitrator capping is here. Also say hello to BF2 style jihad again, cover bike with explosives jumps out bomb. It works for easy 260+ flag grabs on katabatic with just 2 explosives.

    The nerf to BXT1 range is freaking stupid now, you get dmg falloff to 400 dmg from the top of a ship on crossfire to the nearest hill in the middle. It only does 300 dmg at max range now.

    Light spinfusor is better now that it has more knockback.

    enjoy spending 300+ hours unlocking a class set of alternative weapons
    I will, I can see myself playing a fun game for 300+ hours. If I didn't plan on playing it for that long why would I pay for weapon sets?

    Worse for using it to propel yourself. In short, light spinfusor for cappers, bolt launchers for chasers

    When you buy gold in tribes does it save your credit card info? I promised a friend I'd buy him some tribes gold as a gift but I'd need to buy it on his account and I don't want my credit card info saved on it.

    Sentinel is beast, you 2 shot lights. You make heavies very annoyed.

    The pistol is great if you can hit with it.

    Just check it seems to have saved everything except the 3 digit security code is blank and credit card numbers are like ***-***-***-475. Though I can't remember if I asked it to save the information or not as I purchased so long ago.

    What the fuck happened to this game's community

    Now every Aus-region game I join, I get gigantic douchelords who refuse to teamplay, a clan who's apparently teamstacking on a bunch of servers at once, and people VGW-ing whenever they get a kill.

    I think I'm going to wait for the update fever to wear off, because people are being huge assholes.

    Ever match I play ever on the US-East server, except it has been happening since the beginning. Also, I sure am glad they decided to release a weapon that excels in both air and ground combat. They also gave the daggers a ridiculous projectile speed which explains why I'm already getting sniped by people spamming all 30 of them they have in their inventory. This patch basically made infiltrators better than pathfinders at flag chasing, capping, killing, and pretty much everything else.

    No, this isn't patch fever talking. Think about it logically. They gave the infiltrator a weapon that fires decent damage (500) explosives that can be manually detonated at any time, giving them amazing chasing/killing potential in basically any situation, whether it be in the air or on the ground. For targets that are moving quickly or just have low health in general, they gave them a knife that can be spammed relatively quickly (about 2 or 3 knives per second judging by videos) with 30 ammo (according to posts) that has an extremely fast projectile speed. It will only take 3 knives to kill light classes, or 4 to kill mediums, and 6/7 (I think?) to kill heavies. How the hell is ANY of that balanced?

    Jackal is like TF2 Beta Demoman, back when he didn't have a delay before detonating.

    It does mean you can use it to boost in air though, which is awesome. In Temple I have a 310+ INF route now. With ego you can do 3 shots without needing to regen which from a stand still will get you from 0 to 160. Or from 70 to 230 when in a game case.

    In Katabatic the side-to-side route is great, 280+ with full health at the flag stand.

    I just got another 75,000 exp. What the fuck do I spend it on?! I swear, this is the hardest part of this game. I love Brute and I wanted the Colt or the other pack for it but now with the over population of Infiltrators Brute isn't really cutting it. All I can survive as now is Soldier or else I get exploded by an invisible mob.


    Fuck generator defense, it is far from worth it now.

    This is completely wishful thinking, and will never, ever happen, but it'd be nice for them to say to the earlier players "Thanks for being here since the early days, here's a pot o' gold for ye" when it releases.

    there's nothing wrong with the rhino, when did i say there was? but the stealth sf deals massive damage, instantly, from stealth... big difference.

    Well if you wreck shit with the tech smg why aren't you with the rhino? it only does like 5 damage less.

    Edited:

    The stealth spinfusor also catches peoples attention more from what I've seen, with the rhino they sometimes don't even notice you.

    that's my entire point! the rhino is good but the others are better - didn't you read what i said?

    The stealth spinfusor also catches peoples attention more from what I've seen, with the rhino they sometimes don't even notice you.
    but that is directly offset by how the cloak pulse is shorter with it, which cancels that out imo

    This was an amazing round. When the time ran out, both the teams had eachothers flags, and the scores were 4/5 for both.
    Both teams went half defence and half offence, the flags were given to heavy classes and were hid in the underground where half the team were protecting.
    The enemy team somehow even had a tank down there

    In the end, we managed to kill off everyone and capture their flag, ending the match.
    I got tons of kills
