    AK Tribes Nite

    Who's in? Lets pick a night and get together on Vent and take over a map or three on a pub. Maybe Friday?

    I'm "in" for the concept, but "out" this weekend (which includes Monday for me). Next week/weekend are better...

    Same with Gunny... and I don't even think I have Ventrilo installed on my PC.

    Tip: Don't grab the flag unless you stand a reasonable chance at getting home (nobody is around or you're moving very, very fast.) Instead, concentrate on returning your flag (play defense) or spam enemy assets/defenders.

    Similarly, you can just stay at home and play technician. Turret kills are rewarding.


    Gunny should just snipe and be done with it. Some skills carry over.

    I agree with Squidly's tip: Don't llama grab! I can't tell you how many times I've set up a run and hit the flag stand at full speed just after some idiot walks into the flag, then gets killed shortly thereafter. There is never a shortage of cappers, but often my team's flag is left completely undefended. That's when I switch to Doombringer, which isn't much fun for me (I prefer the thrill of capping or chasing), but someone has to do it.

    Incidentally, I don't know about you, Squidly, but I've never played a game in which I get robbed so often. Whenever I'm capping, it's inevitable that I will miss caps by inches because someone kills me or grabs the flag a fraction of a second before I cap. I'm surprised I've yet to rage at this game (as I often did at Tribes 2). I guess that's a testament to how much fun I'm having with it, even when it frustrates the hell out of me.

    Speaking of llama grabs, the Llama Island trailer is great: http://kotaku.com/5891879/tribes-asc...ingly-familiar

    Llama grabbing was what I was describing...and yeah it sucks. I usually play HOF or LD. I'll occasionally go HO or tech. Only rarely do I cap. If you see me doing it (or sniping) it's because I'm in the mood to goof off a bit.

    I'm working hard on my technician class. I love turret kills.
