Welcome to Icrontic's official Tribes Ascend game planning/rules thread for those who don't know it Tribes Ascend is the fastest First Person Shooter on the planet
Down to business:
The Time: As agreed upon here
Tribes Ascend games take place every Wednesday at 10pm ESTThe Rules:
The basic rules follow the same guidelines we have set up for Icrontic's Team Fortress 2 server 1: Have Fun 2: Don't be a jerk naturally any and all Tribes communication occurs over vent so you have to be a member of the forums for this to be an issue, hence this is merely a formality.
Unfortunately however there is a requirement that I have to implement to make sure that everyone can play together:You MUST be at least level 10
The reason for this is that in the last patch Tribes Ascend introduced custom and official servers, official servers range from levels 1-10, levels 10-50, and levels 50-100 as an attempt to separate players of varying skill. This wouldn't be a problem were it not for the fact that
1: Many custom servers have rules set in place that limit gameplay, and therefore game enjoyment
2: Due to these rules custom servers don't receive the same enthusiasm from casual or even hardcore Tribes players as do the official servers, hence the standard population is always significantly below the average of official servers.
3: Quick Play defaults to official servers, as this is the preferred method of finding a game (Especially with the recently implemented party system) custom servers don't receive new players unless there are individuals actively looking for them.
I absolutely hate cutting out potential players but many of our dedicated members have been playing since BETA and the result is that they are all above level 10. The plus side to this however is that getting to level 10 takes very little time to achieve and it will give you a feel for the game before you begin playing with our regular members.
Finally Tribes is an absolutely incredible game to play with friends, while I love it with all my heart its the ability to play it with other Icrontians that has kept me playing it for as long as I have, not to mention the reason why I was and am so enthusiastic about being the game coordinator. Every game is best played with friends, why not make it one that is as fun and ridiculous as Tribes Ascend.
