    Weapon/Balance Items

    Reduced the Bolt Launcher overall damage by 8%.
    Didn't they already nerf the Bolt Launcher by 8%? Now they're nerfing it again?

    Stop nerfing the pathfinder for fucks sake.


    Added the Rocket Launcher for the Doombringer class. This is a secondary weapon that will replace the Sabre Launcher. The Rocket Launcher has 2 different fire functions, a normal rocket and a guided rocket. To engage the guided rocket mode, simply zoom and you will gain a red reticule for guiding the rocket.

    Added the Helix Spinfusor for the Brute class. This is a weapon that will replace both your main AND secondary weapon. The Helix Spinfusor is able to shoot out 2 disks at the same time that will move further away from each other over a distance. The Helix Spinfusor has a long reload time.
    And quit giving the heavies goddamn ridiculous weapons.


    Shrike cost increased to 10000 credits - 7500 with the Wheel Deal perk.

    Decreased the effective splash damage from the Shrike explosive projectiles.
    And this just made the shrike completely useless, there's no reason to go with a Shrike over an orbital strike; it just doesn't make sense.

    Which class should I unlock next, brute or doombringer? I plan to get the doombringer mines if I unlock him
    I've only unlocked doombringer so far. He's pretty fun, but you need to invest in some serious upgrading before he really starts to shine.


    i want custom colored spinfusors.

    this changelog looks too good to be true. april fools?
    i'm disappointed the april fools gag wasn't the addition of ravefusors :(

    I'm pretty sure this supposed update is fake, I mean, how dumb would you be to make the shrike 10x more worthless, give heavy classes another spam-fest weapon and give the doombringer a fucking rocket launcher that fires AND locks on over the sabre launcher.

    I was able to grind myself enough XP to buy the bolt launcher(In one day, without VIP or boosters.). I don't think it would take too long to get 100 000XP.

    Nobody is going to buy a Shrike after this patch. Hell, I rarely see them enough as is. If you would choose a Shrike over an Orbital Strike, then you're a mighty silly individual.

    I see them rather often. Its only the really skilled players who are ridiculously good at flying them that take them out though.

    if that patch is true, the bolt launcher is going to be useless, less damage than spinfusor

    Bart has already said it wasn't him
    In addition, the forum it links to isn't real

    Almost certainly fake, but most some of it is from the game files, so the new CaH maps may be true.

    Edited:

    Man if they brought back Raindance right that would be awesome
    You're probably in luck, even if the patch notes are fake, that map, Stonehenge, and Canyon Crusade are all likely getting remakes soon.

    list of things that are in the game files and may be in future patches

    Edited:

    The most kills I've ever had with an orbital was 5, the most with a shrike was 34, and more than half were flag carriers. I think I know which one I'd chose. (Not to mention the fact that you can use them to grab the flag at 300+ whenever you feel like it)

    The average player makes ~1000 xp in a 20 minute game,
    You'd need ~40 games(counting the daily bonus xp) to get the bolt launcher.
    40 20 minute games = 800 minutes
    800 minutes = ~13 hours

    I don't think I could play that much tribes in a day

    I never knew what to call the Blood Eagle melee. Talons makes more sense than what I've been calling it.

    I love techs who run into the generator room, jump on the generator and repair it while standing still. Then I sneak in as an infiltrator and spot them, I throw a sticky at them then hit them once with my spinfusor, killing them. And they call me a camping noob, or call infiltrator an OP class, just for that one kill. Then they repeat the task of running to the generator in straight line, stand still while repairing and I kill them again. And they rage again. One guy did that like 5 times in a row and each time called me a noob.
