So I just bought this game the other day to get ready for the action on thursday. I didn't actually think it'd be my kind of thing, but I am thoroughly enjoying it. Anyone else thinking of getting in on some of that TNT action?
Getting ready for Tribes: Ascend TNT
I didn't even know they'd done Tribes before. Guess I could have researched beforehand.
I really hope it goes down and goes well. Not really sure how matchmaking works, hopefully there's a way to create a party or something.
Also really hope they play CTF, that's really where it's at imo. We'll see. even if they change it to some other game I'm not gonna feel like i wasted my money, 'cause I'm actrually really enjoying it.
They were supposed to have done a Tribes TNT but what actually ended up happening is that for some reason Vinny was in control of the whole thing, which meant that they played Tribes for like 30 minutes before Vinny's attention span waned and then they played a bunch of other games.
All that stuff was from whatever bundle you bought, not VIP status. I've been VIP since closed beta and all VIP gets you is the XP bonus.

@ajamafalous: a vip account isn't free.
sure, if you don't count the weapon unlocks, class unlocks, cash shop currency, skins and perks.
But anyway, at least you're happy with it.
I'm still torn if I want to play or watch the stream - don't think my connection here can handle both.
I'll probably end up playing though, just because it would be the first time I actually participate in a TNT and becuase I've actually gotten decent at Tribes.
whoever is running the TNT should just set their region to Japan, it's always dead there and you potentially get almost all giantbomb folks joining the game if they know to set their region to japan for the TNT.
Then the server would be generated on the Japan node. :(
