Ah. Well, you know the forum I come from - I think at least, since you lurk my MC channel... I pretty much assume everything posted on the Internet is a troll these days.

I've attended a music/WoW forums that was full of nothing but kids and college students. I was a post whore and I've come across more trolling and weird news in 1 week than I could care to pay attention to in a year. Many don't even know the difference between trolling, flaming, and actually having a somewhat intelligent discussion between peers.

TC.net is a sanctuary in comparison.

What FF says is true, most of the tribes forums are very clean and forgiving when it comes to trolling. People take their anger out on the nets it seems

Heh, the Wii is for few attractive women and a majority of fat women.

No place for building.

The Tribes Acend trailer goes for about half as long as this but is at par with the epicness that is the elder scolls 5.

Now THIS is epic, combining the new trailer with parts of Tribes 1 and 2, pure epicness.

Huh. Was updating my Steam profile and realized I was still in "The Construct" Steam Group. Remembered Rawr32.net. Remembered posting this. Long story short - no, it wasn't a hoax. I was hired by Hi-Rez Studios. I was lead to believe, from the start of my application to the day I started working, that I'd be working on Tribes: Ascend. That was not the case - I worked on Smite (not publicly announced at the time) from my first day at work (April 1st, 2011) to my last (January 22nd, 2013). I must've decided not to post again out of embarrassment and disappointment, then forgotten altogether.

Sorry to disappoint. I played in a few internal playtests, that's about as much input as I had or could have.

xD Well, I wouldn't feel bad if I were you. T:A had its own issues but it wasn't a terrible game. Some things about the game weren't handled in the best way possible, but there would be no reason for you to apologize

It was a massive bait and switch. Even my interview questions were Tribes themed. Day one, I get told to sync up "TG" (TheGame). I ask if I should sync "Tribes". Get told I'm not working on Tribes. So "Tribes: Universe" was a big lie and "Tribes: Ascend" went from being an Xbox 360 game to turning free-to-play PC because they were in too deep after Microsoft wasn't going to publish. That should tell you enough about the process. Great developers, fantastically shit management - how many hundreds or thousands of studios does that describe?

Honestly, that sucks so much. Your input would have made the game so much better. It turned out to be a pile of crap. it is interesting to know that they thought it was going to be xbox 360, until microsoft pulled out.

Why yes, I am the SA you hate.
