I've received a code but i wont have time to try it . If anyone is interested in entering the beta just PM me.
I received a beta key from liking Tribes Ascend on Facebook last night. I really like the game. It is fast, frantic and made me nostalgic for all those hours I put into Tribes 2 at the height of its popularity. Definitely worth a look if you were/are remotely interested in Tribes. I think its "freemium" model works very well.
I still have a total of 3 keys available. Just PM is you want one.
Hexus, you should have traded your keys for beer and special favours while you had the chance.
So, anyone interested should feel free to jump in. I've just (eventually) got it installed (it took 2 attempts) and I'm about to strike it up now.Tribes Beta Version 0.1.789.1 Patch Notes
•The game no longer requires a key in order to play. Anyone can join the beta program by simply creating an account on http://www.tribesascend.com and then downloading the game. Players are reminded that their progression in the game will be kept once the beta ends and the game officially launches -- so time spent playing now will be rewarded at launch.
the game is sweet I just got through playing 4 or 5 rounds.
Does anyone have any idea what the "Rate" for this game is?
i.e. I know that most Q3 engined games are limited to a rate of 25000, so they use no more than 25KB/sec.
What's the command to see/adjust in the Tribes engine, or does anyone know what it does by default?
