What is Tribes 2?
The chance to promote TribesNext is already over.
Remember when all the mainstream gaming news sites mentioned TN a few months back? That was it.
the owner of the site didn't capitalize on that opportunity, leaving alot of potentially new players having no idea what the game is like. After reaching TribesNext.com, all they saw was some random logo.
and they left.
Purest has a point here. Although this site looks nice aesthetically (imho), and has information on the TN patch, it has virtually no information on what Tribes 2 itself actually is, at least none that is easily accessible. I tried pretending I was a newblood who had just found the site and was browsing it, and I came away with no real information on the game whatsoever. While it may be too late to fully capitalize on TN's initial publicity, something should still be done to fix this. Maybe we could make a page for the website, easily accessible from the main page, with a short article on T2 (game/teamplay, modability, history, etc.), some cool screenshots, and/or a video.
As an example of what a free game website should have to attract new players take a look at the Allegiance main page (Allegiance is a game with a history similar to Tribes 2: their servers were shut down; the community recreated the game, making it free; the game now has a relatively small but devoted following). The page has the game's logo, followed by a short description of it. Then it has more in depth descriptions of a few of its cool/unique features. The page also has a variety of screenshots showcasing Allegiance easily accessible via a link. Something similar would probably be helpful in attracting new players to Tribes 2.
