How many of you like siege? Or are at least willing to give it a shot? This is by far my favorite gametype, and I know quite a few others who love it. All I want to do is play a big game of siege again, its been too long. Red Shifter told me that fishie was gonna bring back the pond... but we shall see. I'm curious who's interested in it though.

I've played siege before, Its not my favorite gametype, though that's probably because I play CTF more than any other, I'd be willing to play a good big game. I normally don't play these types because of the Tribes2 AI, but Real People playing would be great! I'm in whenever.

I like to occasionally try Siege with bots, but am disappointed at the fact that no bot has ever successfully captured. I could probably pit the bots against each other and go observer, and they wouldn't get it.

To do Siege effectively with live people, I think there would need to be some good practice beforehand. There was one night on the Goon server that we surprisingly voted to run a Siege map, Alcatraz, but there is a apparently a "secret" trick on that map that enabled the capturing team to win in just under a minute, before the rest of us had even made it through the invo stations for the initial loadout. Since I know most/all the Siege maps have multiple, sometimes less-known, entries into the base, effective defense would mean knowing where they all are and how they could be exploited, and I think that would take numerous sessions of Siege to get right.

The above is Shizuka Kamishima.
Why not?

Yeah, that would be a problem, and If we could get enough people to go to the practices then the game it would be great, although we would need a clan scrimmage like practice. Just so we know who is all coming and so we can get a good map for that many people.

Valid points.

Most siege maps really are not too difficult, but it does focus a lot on speed and teamwork. Alcatraz does have a "backcap" along with Gauntlet and others. Most maps really are not that hard to figure out as long as you know how to read because I would be spamming what to do haha. But there are A LOT of shitty siege maps, beware.

Siege is my favourite gametype when playing any kind of organised games. I would love to see the Pond back as I would use it often for sure.

If enough people were interested perhaps we could have siege pickup games where those who turn up 'must' be familiar with the maps ie. where the gens are, what gens do what, and where the switches are. That way a team captain could efficiently set roles and I think it would work really well.

Some of my best memories of Tribes 2 were the various siege ladders I took part in with some T2 buddies both in the USA and Australia. It was always a shame that more people did not seem to get into the Siege gametype.

Any Siege server would need unbalanced maps like Masada removed from the rotation.

Ahhh.. masada (nuff said). I tried to get a siege PU a few weeks before tribesnext happened. 4 people showed up. But this is also back when rebels was the most popular server *cringe*

I would help pay for a new pond server but I'm moving soon and unsure if I will have enough cash flow to afford that. But I'm more than willing to help organize a siege pu, as well as teach siege noobs the maps Smiley

I luv teh seige!  I cut my teeth on the seige server on The Pond and I think it's a wonderful game type.  I'll join a PU if able.

I'd say let's have a PU this weekend, but I am moving this weekend and may or may not have computer hooked up right away. Maybe Sunday? Plus I don't know of a good server to have it on.
