The following is still more Tribes 2 information from a man who is fast becoming a deity in my book at least, Dave "QIX" Georgeson. He posts the following selections in a thread on our forums in response to forumite questions:
Predefined attack routes are not supported right now. We want some stuff to have to be coordinated through team practices.That's it for this post, but there's three times the amount of info on the thread itself. Interested? Read it here.
And as always .. Thanks, Dave!

After a long hiatus, the Soap Box is back with two new editorials for you to read (and respond to). The first is "So this is what it's come To", an impassioned plea for screenshots other than Mid Airs. The second, "The Community: Arrogance or Stupidity" by DVCxPanda wonders whether people really think before they speak. You can respond to both, and any of the other editorials on the Soap Box, on our forums.
