Tribal Survivor: Clue #6

Submitted by: ^BuGs^ @ 09:44 PM | Wednesday, March 7, 2001 | (url: )


This will be the last clue givin to either teams before the teams merge. Without further ado:

Did you ever climb the hill and become the king? I guess not. Be sure that 2 players from your team are in your IRC rooms by 10pm. Bring those green bombs... you’ll need them again as we travel back in time.


TsN is going to bring YOU all the action so tune in!

    Inside the "New O.G.L."

    Submitted by: Bacchus @ 09:59 AM | Wednesday, March 7, 2001 | (url: )

    Several months ago, we learned that the Online Gaming League was nearing the completion of a 'new project.' Most may have thought that this was just another ladder redesign. But after hearing rumors that this New OGL was going to be much more than that, TribalWar went behind closed doors to find out for themselves.

    What we found was that OGL wasn't just creating a new ladder; they were creating a whole new...well...a whole new gaming world! But don't take our word for it. Follow Bacchus as he goes Inside the New OGL. You can read this TribalWar exclusive right here.

    Submitted by: Rampage @ 03:02 PM | Tuesday, March 6, 2001 | (url: )

    According to GoneGold.Com, they received word from Sierra saying that Tribes 2 is going gold on March 19. Hopefully we can get the validity of these claims confirmed soon.

    Closing in on Tribes 2

    Submitted by: Rampage @ 11:30 PM | Monday, March 5, 2001 | (url: )

    I saw over at Stomped that the recent PC.IGN mini Tribes 2 article with screenshots says that Tribes 2, "should be done and ready to go around the end of March." I guess all we can do now is sit back and wait.

    "Ping Timeouts" Solved?

    Submitted by: ^BuGs^ @ 10:41 PM | Monday, March 5, 2001 | (url: )

    Bytor posted this forums related to the new IRC move:


    Hello all,

    I have been trying to track down the cause of all the IRC ping timeouts that have been occuring since the server was relocated at a new hosting facility. However, today, I was connected all day with two completely idle clients, and I never got dropped.

    So, I'm wondering if it seems better today for other people as well. We made some small tweaks in the firewall arrangement which may have fixed the glitch.

    Can anyone comment? Thanks,
    -Bytor

    Dave Georgeson Responds to you!

    Submitted by: RazorJack @ 04:39 PM | Monday, March 5, 2001 | (url: )

    Today I sent in a e-mail to Dave Georgeson (aka QIX) about the recent uproar in the Community about cheats. Click here for the thread.


    When will Dynamix release a Tribes CRC crack fix?
    No plans for that. We're working on making T2 as "crack-less" as we can instead.

    What is Dynamix's policy on releasing vital Information that may lead to producing cracks for Tribes 1 or Tribes 2?
    Tribes 1 = no policy. Tribes 2 = banning their account.

    Last month, the Online Gaming League announced that it was nearing the completion of a year-long project, culminating in what would be a brand-new gaming community: totally re-worked ladders, new functions, and in short - a whole new look & feel to OGL. As the saying goes, "Inquiring minds wanna know!" Wait no longer. Stay tuned next week for an exclusive sneak peek inside the New OGL. This may surprise you... You can add your contribution to this mystery by posting in the forums here.

    Battle of #1's

    Submitted by: Rampage @ 07:37 AM | Monday, March 5, 2001 | (url: )

    Yesterday, the #1 team on the OGL and Europe's #1 team from The Ladder battled it out for the rights of "best team in the world." WiTTcheN sent these results in:

    Dangerous Crossing
    US Server
    Nutz gained early advantage and Ooz were playing catchup coming back from 4-2 to 4-4. Unable to get the winning cap, Ooz fell to some stylish runs from Nutz who capped out 5-4 before the end of twenty minutes.

    Euro Server
    Nutz again were early pressuring Ooz. But overall, Ooz were able dominate their base more, minimising the quick grabs and pulled away to a 2-5 win.

    Overall :: Nutz 7 Ooz 9 - 3 Points to Ooz

    Stonehenge
    US Server
    Ooz could not get into this game. Nutz had 3 heavies on the Ooz roof inside 2 minutes and owned the Ooz base roof for much of game. Ooz were lucky to be only 5-1 down at the end.

    Euro Server
    Nutz struck first blood again, Ooz being overcome by tight teamplay and covering. Nutz who on US server had played nearly the perfect SH game, continued in similar fashion and won a tight 2-1.

    Overall :: Nutz 7 Ooz 2 - 3 Points to Nutz


    It's good to see that international competition is still around. Hopefully more matches like these can happen in the near future.

    Tune in to find out who will be champ and who will be chump, by joing channel #tsn on the Dynamix irc channel at irc.dynamix.com, port 6667 or by hitting our website, linked above.

    *Edit - It helps if I get the teams right too!*
