I found the projectile characteristics to be very intuitive and pretty easy to get a hang of. At the end of my first day I was getting a good few perpendicular Air Mail kills at 100+ KPH with the Thumper DX, and getting AOE hits off the ground was no problem at all at any angle or speed.

100 really isn't that fast

if you had said 200+ I'd have been impressed.

100+ also includes 200+. I'm not trying to impress you, I'm trying to convey the notion that there's nothing arbitrary or difficult about the way projectiles work in this game.

wonder what would happen irl

you're driving along at 100 kph, and you fire a gun which, when standing, travels at 1000kph

does the bullet travel at 1100 kph?
the really interesting thing would be if you are flying on the nose of a spaceship travelling the speed of light, and you fired something forward... what then?

but none of this stops aries from being a fucking noob at tribes

sorry try again, if you had played for 30 minutes you would realise it is all quite pointless

What I've gathered from the last page and a half:
"Gross this game takes practice to get good at I don't want to play it anymore."

that got really cheesy  when the ragdoll started rolling down the hill and he was huffing and puffing reaching for the flag

other than that it was real cool bro

Flying through a corridor to grab the flag at 200 km/h while shit is blowing up around me and shooting at me is one of the most exhilarating things I've experienced in gaming.

Also, it's somewhat amusing playing juggernaut trying to bombard the enemy defences and having the same guy playing pathfinder constantly trying to kill you with his 800 hp.

Haha, I know what you mean. Had two pathfinders try to jump me near the flag with me as a brute. I'm like LOLDISCOGRENADE! All the flag grabbers get pretty balsy like defense doesn't exist.

We used to play Tribes occasionally on the work LAN.
Playing against people who used to stay up all night for clan training sessions in advance of weekend clan matches while you're trying to remember which key does what was not pleasurable....
It was fun as a zoom-around-blowing-stuff-up game though.

Tribes ripped off Halo....

sometimes you are so transparently childish, it's stupefying.

do you really have nothing more exciting going on in your life? you really get kicks out of just saying dumb things on an internet forum so you can get some provoked attention? were you ignored as a child? is your sex-life lackluster? does your putative partner make you feel small? take a seat on the couch dilbert.

it's kind of heart-wrenchingly sad to see an old guy like dilbert purposefully throwing out these dumb comments - "all gay ppl r stupid" - so that he can come back to the thread later in the day and experience a fleeting, momentary sense of excitement and warmth and human contact.

because its an amazing loadout for midfield fighting and base defence, even if the class is still called pathfinder
