    F**k yeah. I've played a couple VERY FULL games and this is REALLY COOL F**K YEAH. We should all exchange screen names to get games going.

    Yeah, it's down.
  • Its there. But it has BOTS ON IT WHY.
  • Perhaps because the server host decided to add bots, dur. :)
  • Does anyone know the name of the mod that competed with meltdown in t1/early t2?
    I remember the clan(like DB? i think?) :-P but not the mod name.
    Wonder if thats still around.
    That and TAC2 were my favorites, along with the occasional return to base and version2.
  • Added picture gallery.
  • I would play more if the bots were removed. All they do is cause more fps lag for me. (this computer is old)
  • Meltdown2 is all MaJoR plays for Tribes2
  • Looks like Major and KoM are gonna have to have a MATCH THEN, EH?
  • Sweet, clan battles. This is just the publicity I can use to get MD2 interest up!
  • HAHAHAHAHA! Looks like I may be needed. Anybody know when tryouts for either clan are?
  • This is good, good....

    For all of you playing on SoLoFire's server, I could use your help in the MD2 forums for your input on what you think could improve the mod. A new version is coming soon, so get in your ideas before it closes!
  • Flight Mines: Mines that do no damage but you can carry an infinite amount of them.

    Unfortunately the new version we're running doesn't have juggy mine surfing anymore.
  • but.... why...? that's what makes it fun...
  • If there is something you like or don't like, bring it up on the forums link in the first post. The Meltdown 2 community is there overall, and everyone's input is valuable.
  • ok, i'll post with a reasonable argument, but i understand you've probably gone through a lot of effort to remove it, i doubt you'll be putting it back in. oh well, there's always 1490, haha.
  • My favorite part of MD2 is the recycling center.

    If you guys are doing a PUG sometime, I'd love to join in.
  • MaJoR is looking for people who will Join up with us and Scrim!
