Well, how many people here play it/have played it? There is currently a war being waged between two mods, Anni and Shifter. Anni is winning. Anni is also horribly unbalanced, has a load of idiots, and a one hit kill sniper rifle. My point is, it's lame.

So, I ask, how many people would be willing to join us on TopGuns Berserkers, der shifter server me and mad bomber play on?

For those of you who don't know what tribes is, it's basicly an FPS where you throw mass amounts of ordanace at each other whilst in the air. Jetpacks ftw.

I highly recommend you download it and try it out. You need to patch it to 1.11 though.

Tribes? Ahhh, that takes me back. I remember playing in the Neverwinter VII RPG mod...good times...good times.

I kicked ass with my sniper rifle.

Boystrous 19 year old temp at work slapped me in the face with an envelope and laughed it off as playful. So I shoved him over a desk and laughed it off as playful. It's on camera so I can plead reasonable force.  Temp is now passive.

It might be a little while before I'm up and running - finals and all.

Ah, it was great in the good old days... before skiing was discovered and things were actually balanced.

What is this? Tribes? FREE? NAO? And I spent weeks searching for my old Tribes disc which no longer works. I shall join you, Brother Hellstryker, in your crusade against idiocy, unbalanceness and one hit kill sniper rifles!

Wow, haven't played this game in quite a few years. Free now? Hmm... I may have to DL it and play again.

Let me know if you do resolve this issue as my brother and i both run Vista 32bit. Should be fun doing a one V one base assault in unmanned thundersword bombers. :lol:

This is Tribes 1?  And if so, how does it compare to Tribes 2?

They're quite different (I prefer 2), but at least Tribes is still alive.*

Any day, 7-12 eastern time. We need people on TopGuns Berserkers server. You won't actually be killing people in the other mod, because it's disgusting to play. but i'm trying to repopulate shifter and convert as many people as possible.

Skiing is still very much around.

I managed to play Tribes fairly well when I was in |N|, several years back. I was on dialup at the time. So yeah, it should be possible, particularly if you lead the shots a little to compensate for lag.

By the way, we play the Shifter mod, as that seems to be the most well-balanced of the mods out there.

I played Tribes 2 quite a bit back then, but never tried the first game. Wasn't that also released for free at some point?
