@sarcasticmudcrab @frytup: I agree, if they want to, than yah it could be fun.

I'm playing through on PC right now, and it's actually a fine game, some stuff here and there they could have tried to make it more than just the same, but I do like the additions. The cast is great, and I feel like they have you assemble a nice crew. They also pretty much give you a tricorder to run around with, so It's hitting for me on another level as well.

A thought: Instead of having Anthem been it's own game, they should have had parts on planets where the only way you can traverse is with the javelin suits. The jetpack is there, it feels like the natural progression, and being in a new galaxy would be the perfect way to "stumble upon" a new type of tech. I'm not trying to fix either game, as I enjoyed them for what they were, but can't help but feel something was missing.

They're all awesome, but two is my go-to. 3am on the back fin of that one is so dope. The kerbal and game tapes ones are just so cool, too. Well done.

Edit: You posted two new ones as I was making my comment, also slick. I need to save them now.

Posted from the Trackmania sub, another view of the available features.

If you're new to Trackmania, I suggest starting with the free tier, otherwise, hopefully this helps visualize the paid tiers a bit better. If you want full access, the top tier isn't too bad to see how the first year pans out, but it's up to you!

Clarification Edit: Each tier contains all features of previous tiers.

And as Jeff mentioned: "You can join Rooms on standard, and "rooms" is the term they use now for "server." Joining a club isn't joining a game, joining a room is."

@stalefishies: completely agree, it shouldn't be like this.

I just meant the server browser has been replaced with a list of clubs, so it's not a 1:1, clubs are hosted on servers, so you may be able to have multiple clubs on a server. Joining a club in this seems to be the closest to joining a server previously. Obviously there's more to clubs, than just hopping in and racing, though there is still that. Hopefully uplay let's me preload today, cause they said a few days before release, but I still can't.

Also, on my store receipt, it seems the game is referred to as 'Trackmania Next' internally, and I kinda like it.

Edit: My question is that are public club rooms a subset of the club itself? You can access the public club room, but may not be able to join the club proper. This is more rhetorical I guess, as we will find out soon. I'm more excited now, after what Jeff has shown, than I was before. I just want to zoom-a-zoom, in that boom boom.

The 'solo' & 'live' they are referring to looks like Club Solos, and Live Events. Not sure if club rooms will be live racing or curated with ghosts. But in the lower half of the image, 'social & customization' only has a mark/check under Club, and I feel like racing live with other people falls under social. But, I could be wrong, see why it's somewhat confusing?

Edit: And I guess, if Jeff were to host a 'live event' when he does a stream, people without club access would still be able to race. But then, I'm not sure if live events are scheduled & hosted by ubi (nadeo) or partners.

Edit 2: If you end up going Uplay, with 100 points, you get a bit of a discount.

Standard access allows you to play a curated list of 'Track-of-the-Day' Campaigns.

Whereas, Club level access grants:

  • Benefit from the all the features of Standard Access.
  • Race the best community creations and enjoy the diversity of community-made campaigns with the regularly updated Arcade Channel.
  • Join any club you like, find new friends to race against and get exclusive content.
  • Create your own in game club and enjoy the new community management and tournament organization tools to bring you community to life.
  • Offer your club never-ending entertainment as you share your ghosts and create streaming shows!

Standard Access is as follows:

  • Benefit from the all the features of Starter Access.
  • Race the best community creations with the Track of the Day campaign, and enjoy the diversity of community-made campaigns with the regularly updated Arcade Channel.
  • Show your creativity with access to the Trackmania creation tools, and get full access to track and replay editors.
  • Compete in casual, daily tournaments or in international leagues among the world's best players.

So if they're referring to servers, as clubs, then to play against others live, instead of ghosts, you need club access. It still seems as though, from what Jeff has shown, there is going to be a ton of content (& already is a fair amount) for the standard access. Especially with the arcade channel, community-made campaigns, and various tourney's. I'm down for some GiantBomb themed/inspired or curated campaigns. I like the new blocks, and the mix of ice, dirt, & grass. Different levels of turbo seems like a good add, as well. That golf campaign looked pretty neat, and the thought of adding flight-like mechanics/focused campaigns is also intriguing. The faulty canber blocks (mirrored canber?), also tickle my fancy. Anyways, I feel like I'm rambling now, sorry!

From the last drum stream, I was having issues with the quality at certain sizes, so here's the big version:

Here's a cropped version with a better aspect ratio for the emote:

And here's a tiny version, I'm just using ezgif to do this quick & dirty, so it comes out okay, but if anyone has a suggestion, I can clean it up:

Can also shorten it, if the runtime is too long.
