Tribes 2 Tribes 2 & Tribes 1 Now Free!
Posted by: Celios on Wednesday, May 05, 2004 - 05:02 AM
FilePlanet has finally posted the free versions of Tribes 1 and Tribes 2 in their downloads.

There seems to be some confusion about how to get your T2 CD key. The URL for obtaining a key is http://www.fileplanet.com/promotions/tribes2_cgw/. The information you fill out in the form must match your GameSpy registration information. You may have to reverify your email address as a part of this process. Also, make sure you are signed in to GameSpy BEFORE submitting the form.

There is also a lot of new stuff for Tribes 2 that has come out in the last few years. The T2 community has put together a little "Community Patch" that will smooth out some things for both clients and servers. You can read about it here and download here.

Tribes 2 Tribes 2 Authentication Servers Down
Posted by: Celios on Wednesday, April 28, 2004 - 10:56 PM
It seems that the Tribes 2 Authentication Servers have, once again, dropped the ball. Unfortunately, this means that people will be unable to log on and play until the problem is fixed. TWL has yet to comment on the situation, though it's a pretty fair bet that most, if not all, matches are to be postponed indefinitely. Until then, we can only guess at how long this problem will persist.

An update on the situation: (Thrax) The auth servers are being moved from Boston to Los Angeles. They are working on the issues right now, but it should be up sometime soon. Defining soon is a bit problematic. Possibly 10 minutes. Possibly 10 hours.

Tribes: Vengeance New T:V Details Revealed
Posted by: Celios on Monday, April 26, 2004 - 11:57 PM
Some new media from the world of Tribes: Vengeance surfaced today. Among it, some new information concerning the shield pack and a new weapon called the buckler. Thrax made the following comments:

The buckler is a weapon [that's] equal parts shield, hand to hand knockback weapon, and boomerang. It is the medium exclusive weapon, and perhaps the coolest weapon in the game.

The shield pack's passive ability is to reduce a bit of damage (say about 20%). The active ability is to reduce a lot of damage (just like the old pack). So even if you forget to turn it on it does something for you.

Naturally this wouldn't be complete without a nice pic. You can check out the gunship by clicking here.

What's New @ the pond Two New Changes
Posted by: Celios on Saturday, April 24, 2004 - 09:38 PM
Thanks to fishie, the pond has recently experienced some major changes. After some discussion, Capture and Hold has been added as a gametype to the server. Maps will be played rarely compared to Siege but they'll still be in the rotation enough to keep it fresh. On another note, Stats are back in full force as of yesterday! Top 5 switch captures per map will once again be tracked and players can now compete for a variety of titles on the end-of-map stats screen.

Happy killing!
