    So... To people who still play T:A

    The GOTY pack is on sale today. Is it worth it? Also, have they fixed issue with T:A launcher spying on users?

    No to both. Do not, under any circumstances, give HiRez money. The default equipment is mostly fine. Go to www.reddit.com/r/tribes and www.playapug.com if you want to get into the game.

    I already gave them about 40 euros last year. Issue is, only reason I didn't install T:A back, is because of spyware and being god damn rusty.

    GOTY came out like a year ago and was already too little too late.

    Before T:A I entertained the idea that in some circumstances F2P might not be cancer. Not so much after seeing them riddle the game with microtransaction-sized holes and haphazard ongoing development geared towards making the new shiny stuff attractive to buyers.

    Loved the game for a considerable while. But it is dead to me for a long time now.

    I never had any luck with the PUGs - when I got on Mumble to wait for a game, it just wasn't ever even close to materializing. Anyone here play? I have a huge soft spot for Tribes gameplay and Ascend hits close enough, so I keep coming back to it, hoping...

    I'd like to play, if there was least more info about spyware. And stuff about HiPatchService really don't make me want to get back to that game.

    Yeah. If they were hell-bent on going with this model, they should have offered the full purchase version right away.

    Dota 2 is the only F2P model I've seen that actually seems worthwhile. Micro-transactions are cosmetic only, so the only inherent advantage is actual game skill. Yes, there are profile levels, but that only nets you more cosmetics.

    T:A seemed to have amazing potential for a while, but HiRez mismanaged it beyond repair. I'm surprised this sub hasn't been canned.
