Let's face it, regardless of our opinions on the game, it's just a game.  Tribes 2 needs a strong community working together if we want this game to succeed.  Let's get to know a bit about who all of us really are.

My name is Joshua.  I'm a twenty-six year old with one son (Hero, he just turned three).  I work as a pharmacy technician at MCV hospital, primarily in the outpatient pharmacies.

I'm a white liberal unmarried atheist with a child who's mother is black, so anyone south of the Mason Dixon line will hate me  Shocked.  I'm fairly nerdy in general, so I enjoy reading, science, math, and I hate sports.

Excuse the poor picture, it's the most recent one I have.  If I get a webcam, maybe I'll update it.

Okay then.

Name's Nathan (Friends call me either Nate or Na ("neigh") and I was born in 1985.  nate + 1985 = na85.

I'm from London, Canada and am currently studying Mechanical Engineering. 

Here's me on a camping trip with some friends, being really excited to be playing drunken dodgeball during the wee hours of the morning.

I got T2 shortly after it came out but never really got into the league scene.  Maybe if a ladder gets going I'll sign up and see what it's like.

Here's Me:

Yeah, so what to say about me?

I am a U of MN alumni who is also a Nationally recognized EMT-B.  I make more money delivering pizzas than as an EMT.  I want to go back to school to get certified as an RN.

I love Love LOVE MMA (Mixed Martial Arts... yes UFC).  I hover around the forums often as well.  I have met TJ DeSantis (who is from MN), Sean Sherk, Megumi Fujii, Gina Carano, Shayna Baszler, Jens Pulver, Bob Sapp and, of course...

Josh Barnett!

I am such a little kid with Fighters.  I could see any Hollywood star and think "neat," but if I see a fighter I get all starstruck because I really respect MMA.

I also Kickbox over at my old highschool.  I teach the kids discipline and respect for one another and I get to run them ragged, lol.

I live in MN; Minneapolis to be exact.  I am currently doing some remodeling on my attic, so I blame Tribes for my lack of progress as of late (thanks a lot guys).

Other games I enjoy are Civilization 4, Half-life series, Left 4 Dead, splinter cell series, Hearts and Freecell.  Deus Ex, Grim Fandango, Starcraft and of course, Anarchy Online are probably my most nostalgic and loved games I have ever played.

I don't know music theory at all, but I love instruments.  I have a plot to purchase a mess of instruments when I finish school.  I want to buy a Saxophone, Guqin, Various wooden flutes, a Sitaar, and a Violin.  I play (not the best term, really) the piano and Acoustic Guitar.

I listen to Groove Salad on almost exclusively... If not I am listening to Rob Dougan or some Soundtrack Score of some sort.

That's all I can think of for now.

Come join us on the Playground!

This is Maturin, I often play on the big Goons server.  I'm the guy wielding a mean ELF Gun.  Grin

I'm 36, am a consultant and have been playing Tribes since Starsiege: Tribes came out (read about in NextGen Magazine, remember that?).  Back then I played under the name of "Terrapin" and was briefly in Mature Asskickers [MA] clan.  I played a LOT of Insomniax Mod (love that IX9000).

I also play a lot of Civ 3 (but not 4), and my only other gaming claim to fame was that I was perma-banned from the old Gaming-Age forums.

pic of me last year. and yes its true, I can walk on water, so that justifies my hax in game :]

okay now an actual tiny description:

I live in Canada (but this pic was taken in Pennsylvania) and am 17 years old... turning 18 this year :]. I got Tribes 2 for Christmas in 2001 when I was 11... and I like to believe that moment triggered an epiphany... which allowed me to make ease of complex mathematical calculations and made me excel through school Wink.

Let's see here... I play hockey (Canada lol), music (piano, guitar, sax... play keys for a rock band in my city and am the star improviser at my school  Cheesy), have a beautiful girlfriend (no pics for j00), and bring home the high marks (free university for me  Smiley).

I've got a math exam in about 2 hours which I haven't studied for yet, but it isn't hard when you've assimilated the complex angles from a previous night's game of T2  Wink

Name's David. Nickname is really Beaz. 25 for another month and a half. I'm a NOC Engineer for a "Managed Service Provider" (think "Outsourced I.T.").

IT by day and gaming by night, unless I have to go out and be social. I'm pretty much a game-a-holic, own all the major systems and of course a PC. I go through games like candy, but Tribes has always had a special place in my heart so here we are. I've also played or own most of the games in this thread, so I hope to see some of you guys in more of them!

I run Goon Haven (bet you wouldn't have guessed!!!!) on my own hardware.

Greetings and salutations. My name is Andrew Shifflett:



I live in Virginia and am working on transferring out to James Madison University, dabble in some more general education stuff, and then hopefully transfer out to the University of Virginia where I eventually hope to graduate and become a lawyer.

In my spare time, I enjoy acting black:


And nerdy:

And now I invite you on a tour into my humble home. Below you'll find a picture of my living room. My mother picked out very expensive things to go into this room, and by the time we were done spending, all we could afford was a 15" television from Walmart:

Here you'll find a picture of my lovely bed. This is where I sleep, and sometimes it's where the magic happens. It really all depends on how much money I have, and whether or not I can afford to buy the magic.

And finally, here's a picture of my beloved desk, where I spend most of my time being a studious student, or a disruptive tribes player. If the magic isn't happening on the bed, it's certainly happening here (I have an account).

Hope you enjoyed a glimpse into my life!! BYE!
