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.

    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,

    You can check the thread here.

    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.
