That's not what I'm saying at all. What I meant by that is what I've seen so far. There are plenty of players who don't want to play pugs because they don't want to learn a new game in that in environment. But the pugs are a perfect place for vets to learn the game quickly. And then there are the players who believe they are above the level of the pugs and don't play. Plus I've read many comments from people on the outside who dislike that people have a head start on everyone else.

All of this nonsense is silly to me. The game is very easy to pick up and play coming from T1.

im trying to find a way to phrase this without typing 9000 words about learning and human psychology and game theories and how subjective the experience of 'fun' is but idk if im capable of that

if you were learning to play basketball, would you walk up and down your driveway learning to dribble first

or would you play a game vs the Harlem Globetrotters

like, the Globetrotters aren't an NBA team, its not a 'serious game' and im sure The Generals had fun too, even though they went 6/13000 or something

but i doubt thats the way that anyone wants to learn how to play basketball

maybe that reference is too old

you understand how like, i would probably rather duel shift right now, than duel you? that if i dueled shift, i'd at least have an opportunity to learn how to aim properly than if i dueled you and each duel lasted 4 seconds?

like, yes, if i duel you i'd see much more advanced stuff that i wouldn't learn from him, and of course i'd want to duel you eventually to get to that level

but if i dueled you i'd spend 98% of my time respawning

just like i probably wouldn't have very much fun or learn very fast if i tried to learn how to dribble a basketball playing 1v1 against Meadowlark Lemon

(ok yea that reference was definitely too obscure)
(RIP Meadowlark)

But you already know how to play tribes. This isn't your first tribes game. So you're not learning something entirely different. I'm an exception in Midair. The average player is still figuring out LT. The game isn't loaded with super storks, it's more like have fun freds with a few tryhards here and there.

Remember when we had to schedule a time to play tribes vengeance/assend? Me neither. Probably more people have Alpha level access for Midair than there were at the closed beta level for either vengrance or assend.

Hey u 2 gaymo's how about you two just hold hands and shut up while the only one of importance gets a little help here k.

Anyways so got it setup on ubuntu 16.04(thx Odio) and other than mouse sens being harder to zero in on than i'm use to(way more sens on unbuntu apparently) I'm getting some weird horizontal flickering i guess is the best way to describe it. Maybe also some fps loss but hard to tell with the horizontal lines. Any ideas or is this going to be some vsync thing again?

even if all you did was change the weight of a basketball i'd still want a little time to adjust before i joined a neighborhood pickup

i'm not saying you guys are unwelcoming to new players or elitist, i just want an hour or two of dueling to get the feel of the many differences

im a weirdo so maybe its just me

not sure how tribes under ubuntu works, i assume its under WINE or whatever but yeah it could be a sync issue of some sort

if its a scriptGL config it could be that too? certain drivers seem to give an odd scriptgl flickering

There are, if you show up at the scheduled time. There's an alert on steam to let you know it is an official pubbing night. It's only like once a week though, so the alert isn't very nagging.

do you think there will be a bigger community once the game is open beta or what not??? i should be able to go on at any time during the day and be able to play in a full pub. what is ur thought odio??

have they tried messing with things like projectile speeds to see how that plays out?? videos seem pretty similar as they did 6 months ago for the weapons

Projectile speeds haven't been touched since Instant Access afaik, which was a year ago. I believe they tried speeds similar to T1 (discs at least), and apparently it didn't feel very good. Likely because players are moving faster.

Mouse drivers are just **** on linux. I don't think it's been improved in wayland because it's still all the same backend (libinput). This is coming from a linux enthusiast - linux is **** for gaming.
