Tribes: Ascend is an awesome team-based fast-paced free-to-play shooter with jetpacks. Since the game is free to play and is one of the games I enjoyed a lot recently, I decided to post this here, perhaps we can add each other as friends there and play a couple of games together and whatnot. My in-game name over there is the same as here, feel free to add me as a friend. 🙂
Register and get the game here (Yes, this is a referral link and if you would register using it I would appreciate it a lot.)March 30, 2012 at 11:04 pm #2027PyrotekModerator
I’ll probably get around to checking it out later, but in the meantime: how is it in terms of pay-advantages? I ask because generally, after a bit of time, F2P games start turning sharply towards the paying for “cosmetics only, we swear” customers (and I can’t blame them).March 30, 2012 at 11:32 pm #2028
You can indeed purchase a couple things with real money, however, you can also get stuff without paying with XP you get for participating in matches, but at a much slower rate, quite similar to the LoL in that respect. Pretty much all of the unlockable weapons for the classes are side-grades with no huge overall advantages over each other, i.e. one weapon would be more useful in one situation than in another. Also, you still have to “upgrade” the stuff you unlock with XP to get the most out of it, so people who pay to get weapons and whatnot will have to do it as well. So no, I don’t think that the game is pay-to-win at all.March 31, 2012 at 12:01 am #2029Warchamp7Moderator
Hi Rez has done a pretty good job with the pay model. Game is funApril 2, 2012 at 1:57 pm #2030
Have any of you guys played the older Tribes games? Can you comment on how Ascend feels in comparison to say Starsiege: Tribes or Tribes 2? Forget Vengeance and Aerial Assault, those games sucked. As an old school Tribes player I’m going to be really really picky about this game. That being said, once I get set up I’ll be more than happy to serve spinfusor discs to the face of anyone who asks. 😀April 11, 2012 at 9:29 pm #2032
Alright, I’m rocking Ascend on my crappy PC. Low graphics settings, but it seems like a true successor to tribes 2! I’m happy for Hi-Rez that they could pull this off. Its WAAAAY better than that game with the V that we don’t talk about 😉
Also, nice Blood Eagle avatar DD. Too bad I’m going to have to show you the power of the Diamond Sword tribe! (On that note, I do miss the Starwolf tribe. They were bitchin.)April 12, 2012 at 5:44 am #2033FarbladeModerator
I played for a couple of weeks, but became slightly bored with all the repetitive chaos.April 12, 2012 at 2:37 pm #2034

Yep. If you haven’t found it yet, subscribe to /r/tribes! There’s also /r/shazbot for derpy stuff thats tribes related. I’ve been getting these links from /r/tribes, but maybe they’ll be giving out other weapons in the future for the full release. I’d personally love to have a free Thumper for my Tech.
