Forum Shots

Submitted by: Imposter @ 01:54 PM | Friday, March 9, 2001 | (url: )

With the Tribes 2 Meta Non-Disclosure Agreement now partially gone thanks to Dave Georgeson, we've seen a flood of great shots from the game on our forums. Here's a quick list to some of the best threads:

  • 4u2c has put up a ton of great shots in 1600*1200 using his GeForce2. Check it!
  • Bad_CRC of has created a thread with links to tons of shots he and Kelster of PSS took.
  • Fubar has started a thread where he offers to take requests for screenshots showing off whatever you want to see in the Meta...
  • NDA = Over is the biggest of the screenshot threads so far, be sure to check it out.
  • Finally (finally because there realy are new threads every 5 minutes and I don't want to keep this up all day) Pringles has started a thread with not only shots but also his thoughts on his experiences in the beta/meta.

  • Immunity Challenge

    Submitted by: Imposter @ 11:10 PM | Thursday, March 8, 2001 | (url: )

    Due to some confusion we held an impromptu Immunity Challenge tonight instead of what we had planned. The challenge was to get as many people into each team's irc room, #BloodEagle or #DiamondSword as possible. Whichever team had the most people in their room won. The final score: DiamondSword - 137, BloodEagle 132.

    This means that Team BloodEagle will have to vote one of its members out of the game tomorrow, we'll have results at 8pm est. On Saturday the teams will merge into one, the new Team Starwolf. From now on Immunity is on an individual basis. The next challenge will be Sunday at 10pm est.

    Bytor stated in our forums that is indeed down for maintenance. They are working on fixing the ping timeout problem many users have been having. The server "should be online soon", we'll let you know when we find out it's up.

    A Moment of Silence for SES

    Submitted by: Bacchus @ 11:43 PM | Wednesday, March 7, 2001 | (url: )

    Heartbreaking news from our Southern Tribesplaying brothers: the SES server is no more. [SES]Salleyman sent the bad news this evening:

    For anyone that doesn't know, Interland pulled the server down today at 7pm... So the server is now out of commission for good. I will do my best to find some alternative but I just wanted to say thanks to all SES members and community for keeping the server up for the past two years..."

    That's what happens when an ISP decides to police-up all those servers found scattered on its floor (brings new meaning to the phrase 'Unplugged'). We hate to see a good gaming server go. If any of you can help SES find another home, please contact them at

    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.
