Got Milk? just dropped us a note on our forums to let us know that the Base Plus servers are back. Here's the info:
Well... we're back from E3 - had a great show. It was really cool talking to all the players that showed.The key word there is constructive, and I really do recommend you check out the Base Plus servers and supply some feedback. Let the Dev Team know what you like and don't like, and supply good reasons for it. Otherwise you forfeit your voice, and this is a very generous opporunity - the Dev Team did this just so you guys can preview and review changes that may make their way into Tribes 2. Check out the thread here and give feedback. Thanks to Got Milk? for letting us know!

The last 8 demos or so we've put up are all Snowblind. I'm feeling the Snowblind love, but remember - variety is the spice of life .. or tacos, I can never remember which.
Our E3 'correspondant', Locke355 has written up a small review of what he saw at this years show and placed it on his site at Locke355.com and to me to post here, so without further delay, here is Locke355's look at Tribes 2 at E32K:
Let me start by saying, STOP ASKING ABOUT THE PLAY BALANCE! Mark assured me that the game is in an alphaish state, and that dynamix has a long road ahead of them of testing and gameplay balance, and that this is in no way the final settings for things like disc damage, etc. As further proof, do you really thing the light can carry the rocket launcher? In third person view, that thing stuck so far behind that little skinny light that i was afraid if it had recoil the light would be sent flying up an adjacent hill.

On his return from E3, Dave Georgeson was again cool enough to post a message on our forums. Here's a bit of what he had to say:
A few things I wanted to say about the show:Oh, and by the way:

Since we're now approaching 600 demos here in the archive, it came to our attention that possibly the top TEN demos are too few, so I've doubled it to the top twenty. Yeah yeah, the links still say top ten, but I'll fix that when I get to it. For now, you can check out the top 20 demos in the archives.

Just checked out Pub's demo from the TWC - Canada vs Germany. What a match! Pub and Rat do some great work on the flag, but Germany is able to capitalize on the short windows of time when the flag is left open. TWC rules are funky, its not a win by maps, but caps - therefore some maps are more important to win than others (since they have higher cap limits) Not necessarily the case in this situation and more of my own commentary, but I digress. If you're a HoF, or just want to watch some good action, Pub's demo shows how to man the SB room of death.

I caught this over at tribes.stomped.com. It comes from Yoshi, their man at E3:
I talked to Got Milk (son of the University of Oregon president Dave Fronmyer) about the Rocket Launcer and found out how it works. When you fire it the rocket will track the target it is aimed at like I said before. Though it will have a fire mode that they kind of showed with the fire and forget mode. If the target is painted by a target laser and you fire a rocket it will go for the the painted target. Though it will only head for the target while it is painted if the laser comes off the target or you run out of power then the rocket will stop the tracking. This will be in the final game.The report also mentioned the new environmental pack, which facilitates underwater breathing.
Yoshi's report is pretty complete, and includes information on the online chat aspect of T2 (there will be one, possibly IRC), system specs, and the replacement of the sensor jammer (which sounds a lot more useful than the current model), to name just a few. All in all, this pretty much sums it up:
Tribes 2 even in a pre-alpha state rocks. Though there are a few bugs in the game the main problem is the wait we have to do till this game comes out. It is everthing Tribes was times 10.More from Yoshi can be found here.

So I heard that AGN had some Tribes 2 gameplay footage up, and loyal civil servant that I am I went to check it out for you. After much questing, I found that there is in fact gameplay footage, as well as a tour of the Sierra booth at E3 and interviews with, I assume, Sierra VIPs. How did I find this out, you ask? Well, I'll tell you...
