If there's a ****ty buggy product at the end, the accountability ultimately lands on the developers. Irrational games flaked out with T:V because they made terrible design choices, and didn't focus on the MP aspects. It stood up well as a SP game and that's what they're good at. If you had a company like DICE doing Tribes as an MP focused game, I'm sure the outcome would have been much different.

Few things need to happen for this to be successful...

- Good game types, CTF being the primary, but also Team Rabbit and Duel would be nice to see.

- Original maps as well as the classics from T1. (Raindance, Stonehenge etc)

- Speed, game has to be fast-paced where suiciding isn't frowned upon, more of a tactic.

- Scoring, should focus more on team score rather than individual score. Everyone seems to be concerned with their own personal scores like you see in Black Ops / BC2. When I played Tribes, I could give a **** about my score, all I cared about is if our team won at the end.

- When I type ~wdeath, I better hear a goddamn awful dying sound.

This a thousand times. Deemphasize personal scores as much as possible. You know what sucks about playing the objective modes in Halo/CoD? No one's actually playing for the objectives.

They are planning a 2011 release but don't even have ANY gameplay in their trailer? (or at least the new one I just saw)

As far as scoring, yeah you should definitely get points for helping the team rather than only for getting kills, but if i'm taking down their cappers and saving the day for our team, I'd better damn well have a higher personal score that reflects my higher skill at the end of the game than some no-skill repair jockey who lost every fight he was in, but repaired a bunch of stuff.

Sure, who didn't love high school or college or whatever, but to think that Tribes wasn't something special in terms of its actual content is just not correct.

Vehicles, player-produced animations and the voice chat menu, targeting laser + mortar. Once skiing became a part of the landscape the game became limitless.

Exactly. Headhunter should be the most fun gametype in Reach, yet people just sit in corners with shotties trying to up their k/d. Useless.

I hate the "don't ask TW for advice!" bull****.

"What should we do TW?"
"T1 + new graphics"
"Ok sounds good. But, lets add new vehicles, change the physics, and tweak the weapons."
(Game/mod fails)

Holy crap, El Mar showed up? Wow.

On the OT, didn't we already go down this road, like 5 times before? This will not end well.

I think the solution should be to not display how many deaths you have. I feel like TF2 handles teamplay pretty well. There are a few of the achievements that make people go solo and do dumb stuff, but for the most part nobody cares about deaths. They are focused on whatever the objective is.
