      It's a great game. Hard as ****, though. Last time I played I ragequit hard 'cause some cheeky guy threw up a energy barrier right when I snatched the flag at 300km/h.

It's fast, it requires skill, movement is actually important, you can last a match without dying, teamwork is required, not a spamfest, it has CTF and Domination (under a different name) and DM, vehicles don't give you that much power and I don't really plan on using them. I love it. If anyone here is willing to play, my game name is Wunderbar007.
        I don't mind at all.

        I'm playing mostly TDM. When I first started playing UT, I played all TDM/DM games. Then I played Sniper Arena. CTF didn't come until later. I didn't start playing VCTF until a few years into UT2K4, then I switched to TAM until UT3 came out. I guess I"m back to my roots.

        I do like CTF in Tribes and DOM is fun too, but TDM is definitely my fave.

        Sorry to hear people installing it without giving it much of a chance. It just takes some time to learn. It's a lot faster than most games, but once you start getting good you'll really feel like you accomplished something. It's definitely not easy.

          To be honest I'm in love with all of the 4 gametypes available. They all make you fight a little differently, especailly depending on what your class is. It's without a doubt the most fun I've had since UT3 was in its prime. Also Flak, if you like TDM, you should try some Arena. It's 5vs5 TDM.

            Yes I like that too!! Did you play "Walled in" yet? That totally gives me a Quake/UT vibe.

              Sure did! Yea it does have the familiar look. It's probably my favorite arena map of the three.

                    How is the instal process? Can I pause downloading and resume later or do I need to plan a time to download it in one go?

                      Apparently Tribes Ascend is equipped with a pretty potent anti cheat. I was reading the forum to the Artificial Aiming site and noticed the members talking about it. One guy said this:

                      "It is my understanding that Hi-Rez has some form of anti-cheat programming written into the game. Thus far, and to my knowledge, no hacks have been able to bypass their cheat detection. What bothers me the most about this is the fact that, sooner or later (if not already), Hi-Rez will realize what they have accomplished. In an effort to make money as always; they will copyright, package, and distribute this anti-cheat software. If this happens, hacking seems as if it will become more difficult and, unfortunately for the consumer, more expensive."

                      Good.

                        Are the cheaters really complaining the can't get away with it?

                        "If this happens, hacking seems as if it will become more difficult and, unfortunately for the consumer, more expensive." lol

                          Lol, you should read the rest of what's on that forum. They're all in complete denial that they suck :/ and need an aimbot. I kind of feel bad for handicap people that use aimbots, but the rest of them...come on.

                          Anyway, I tried the game out tonight. Pretty cool stuff. I only played with 2 weapons the whole time, but pretty cool. It takes some getting use to as far as the "surfing."

                            This game is fantastic, Firstly I can't believe UE 3.5 runs on my laptop decently, secondly CTF reminds me of the UT days when it was first released many moons ago, the noobness of it all.
                            And thirdly,
                            SkippyDoe
                            Is my ingame name, feel free to add me and join in on some hot CTF action!

                              Hate this game. Just stupid. No wonder it's free.

                                It was better during beta testing when missing or broken features or gameplay mechanics were expected. Now it's just annoying.

                                Some friends and I paid to rent a server. A lot of the server settings don't work and half the time the server is not up and there is nothing we can do about it.
