Starsiege: Tribes 16 years on

Submitted by: EvanVolm @ 04:32 PM | Monday, December 1, 2014 | (url: http://www.fps-z....)

Tribes will be celebrating its 16th birthday today, though celebrating may be a bit of an overstatement. Unlike other popular PC games of the mid-to-late 90s such as Starcraft, Quake, Unreal Tournament, Half-Life, and of course Counter Strike, the original Tribes has unfortunately been unable to retain much of its player base. While there was a time when the game had over 100,000 players and a plethora of servers and mods to choose from, those days have long since passed.

Those remaining today are the die-hards. The ones who know the game from the inside out, and absolutely slaughter the rare newcomers who dare to step -or fly- in front of their Spinfusor. Online activity typically peaks later into the evenings, with just two servers managing to attract between 12 and 18 players each, 20 on a good day. In total there are roughly 5 active servers, none of which feature the vanilla game itself anymore. Popular mods such as Annihilation and LT (Light Tribes or Light Training, depending on who you ask) have taken over the original game that launched in 1998.

Dutch Courts Order Pirate Bay Blocked

Amsterdam - A Dutch court last week upheld copyright infringement-related convictions of the operators of file-sharing hub The Pirate Bay, who had claimed they no longer had ties to the operation, having sold the site to a Seychelles-based company called Reservella, TorrentFreak reported.

The court had ruled that the three previously found guilty must pay penalties of 50,000 per day if they don't block the site for Dutch users.

Meanwhile, another Dutch court has ruled that several of the country's largest ISPs need not block The Pirate Bay from their customers.

According to TorrentFreak, the court ruled that there is no evidence the majority of Pirate Bay users are infringing copyrights, and anti-piracy firm BRIEN must target individual users.
