And you would know. Im curious, after you and z0dd had the Physics relatively near where you wanted them, what % of the overall process was just spent tweaking the vehicles to fit the new physics and be balanced to the players?

While the crashing issues caused most of the returns - especially from Non T1 Players, there was a very large group of players who didnt return it, but went back to t1 within months due to the gameplay. I was one of those. I came back for B++ and enjoyed it until Classic came out when I fell in love with the game again.

Maybe things were just going south at that point anyway, but it seemed like there was a resurgence with classic which quickly fizzled out. Not long after there were only a handful of servers and a bunch of noobs walking around.

A perfect example of why modding isn't always the solution, especially for small communities.
T2 Base split the community in 2. By the time B++ came the competative community was begging for it. Non comp players didnt really give a **** about they physics because they were busy running around on the ground Missiling everything, or cloaking in the base trying to get the gens, or playing on Houston Vehicles. B++ revitalized the game a little, but it just gave us a taste leaving us wanting more. When CLassic came out, it revitalized competition and the game for over a year, but it did further divide an already massively divided community. Had Classic not come out, the game would have dwindled (as it was hence Them having Z&Z make classic) much faster and the game as we know it today would be entirely dead.

100% Agreed. When Classic released, it would have made a huge impact had it replaced Base instead of dividing the playerbase further. The other mod was V2 I believe, which was somewhere between Classic and B++ in physics, but had other tweaks as well. This further divided the community. This is why with Ascend, the WORST thing they could do would be to launch with 2 different sets of phyics like a few people (very few) have asked for trying to appease both the T2 Base crowd and the t1/t2c crowds.

I love classic for pubbing initially, but I didn't like it in matches and I stopped playing in a tribe. Defense became MD, BB, then Snipe. Turtling standoffs became the norm and it got really boring.

While base was slow, I liked the increased teamwork it required. Base++ helped but still lacked speed. One of the last betas of classic seemed ****ing perfect...only to have it ****ed up for release. Someone made it way too easy to go fast. One small hill and a DJ and you are back to the flag in a few seconds. It wasn't worth chasing anymore, so everyone started sniping.

This may have been your personal experience, but I couldnt disagree more. Chasing is very very possible and required. the team with LD that can chase in Classic wins.

Ill Take MD/BB/Snipe/CG for Defense over ELF, Huge Turret Farms, Tanks on Flag etc that Base & Base++ encouraged.

nah I think the most common hacks are terp, textures, and perma iffs. there is also an auto lance out there.

I haven't played T2 in a while but all this talk makes me want to fire it up and get my ass kicked.

Ass-end could be amazing, or really bad. In this case, Rosie O'Donnal.
