I've played Tribes 2 since April, 2001 and I don't plan to quit anytime soon. I've played almost every mod out there, seen the begining of construction, and the fall of many mods. My personal favorite mods are Ninja Mod, BONES Mod, and Quantium 2.8 (Yeah that's right. Quantium 2.8, surprising isn't it?)

I wanted to know if there are any other T2 vets that recently came back. Maybe we could slaughter some noobs some time. Smiley

95% of people playing this are going to be vets.

Well, I used to be a Vet, but sadly I have not fired up T2 in way too long.  I started playing it back when it first came out, I've been a Tribes fan since the first Tribes game.
My mod of choice was always Syrinx......good times.  I really would like to get back into this like I used to be.
It's been a long time old friend.

Eww Quantium. I personally always thought Sun Quan was a script kiddie.

Yes, he is a script kiddie. But I had some good times and good laughs then, and that version of Quantium wasn't as gay as QX. Good times. But Ninja Mod and BONES are way better in my opinion.

No shit. I didn't ask how many people are vets, I'm asking WHO they are. Maybe you should learn to read. And, 95% of the people I've seen on lately are noobs. Most don't even know how to change their loadout and run around in spawn gear.

This is the question I read:

I wanted to know if there are any other T2 vets that recently came back.

And all my post meant was that the answer is yes.  So chill.

Well if you are asking who the vets are I guess I'll chime in. In tribes 1 I was mostly arena and played with folks like martha stewart and marky mark(If anyone remembers those days). Got to see the wears form up. In tribes 2 I was a shriker....unless you were into shrikes even slightly you probably didn't know me though.

Old vet here - chiming in....   Original name was Drakan, and used to run RYTS back when game started, then changed name to ImaNoob.   Been continuing to play T2 since April 01', and still say its one of the best games of all time IMHO.

Familiar name, and I'm a very good shrike pilot so I'm into them as well. Smiley

Likewise, I think when the community becomes so secluded like this - all you really will have are veterans and returning players by word-of-mouth. Which hey, means that by Darwinian standards - there should be some sharp challenges on the servers with people who are skilled and knowledgeable of the game. Not bad.

While I think it will be our playground of a past era (figuratively), I think advertising T2's online return would help bolster the #'s we'd see online even if it will be purely veterans. I'm not opposed to gunning down some newbies; everyone needs a bit 'o cannon fodder. But for every serious newbie looking to get his game on, you get about five rejects proportionally.

Oh, and I have way too many aliases: Darkhaze, Dark-One, y0da, Unstoppable, Rawheat. Played Tribes 1 forever (6+ years; a few ladders: OGL, TW, Teamplay.net, etc.), Tribes 2, and *cringe* T:V when my previous addictions dried up. Played base (T1), Renegades (T1), RPG (T1), & base/classic (T2). Nothing really has quite come out on the market that has ever lived up to the gameplay style and pace of T1/T2. I remember it being a breath of fresh air coming from the Quake 2 MP days.

Blnukem- Eh I used to be one of the best shrikers in the game. Was usually on the aerial dogfight servers...Wish it was like riding a bike, but my rusty butt is around the game a little now(since last night). Still hoping an aerial dogfight server pops up...

Unstoppable- Yeah advertising would bring in more folks. Though I think people are holding off till the build is solid enough. Don't want new folks coming in running into bugs and forgetting about it altogether.

Remember though tribes 1 was not overly popular till it became a free game even if it was not legally so. So if this gets ironed out theres a good chance of it working out.

Right, makes sense. Especially about the buggy aspects being ironed out before you guys go full throttle on the advertising campaign. I'll probably share this with a few other level-headed and patient tribes players who won't mind running into the bugs if it'll help with a reemergence of activity (which is what we're all hoping for I think).

I'd consider myself a T2 vet I guess. I always played T1 a lot more, but I remember that I used to be a godly sniper in T2. I could stand in one area and pick people off before they could even get to me, over and over.

Glad to see this project here.

T1 player and mapper, and T2 player, mapper, and modder. Became fearsome in the shrike, and since lost my ability to fly it after playing Planetside, and the Reaver reprogrammed my brain. Smiley
