I'm not sure about RPS events, but Spinfusor.org is having a bit pickup game event at 8pm that anyone can join in on if you want a taste of 7v7 competitive style Tribes. More info here: http://www.reddit.com/r/Tribes/comme...am_egocentric/
I want to do some C&H myself as I liked Domination in UT when I played that (just thinking about it makes me feel old) just I can see why a lot don't like the game, though primarily because Hi-Rez seemed to have just taken the CTF and TDM maps and jimmied the C&H objective points to it. Katabatic is hell as a heavy and Outskirts 3(or whatever it is) is a mortar and disco fest for killwhores.
Sorry for bugging out early last night; have been working too much and some of the jug duels I had were too much for my brain to take. (TIP: Dont buy the fusion mortar delux, be tired and forget you are using it. The mind gets confused as to why shots are not acting correctly).
And the guy calling us noobs... he was on the same team as me so he had a point.
VGY Just put a game up for Sunday.Are there any events planned for this weekend?

Mines just came up as my daily deal, so I'm now properly specced for HoF - they really do make a difference, far more useful than the forcefields. I'll have to try out this new Chain Cannon too, seems like a lot of people prefer it.
Just curious; did they change the price on the heavy bolt launcher? I swear it was a 100k item, yet my store page without a discount lists it as 42k.
Looks so. I might buy it
CWalker00> SKYDANCER YOU UTTER BOLLOCKS
Yeah, I believe they did.
Also, Arena seems to be the only place where I'm a decent Pathfinder. Or maybe I'm just terrible in small games that have heavy defense. And is it just me, or is it very difficult to hit fast-moving targets with the LAR?
I recently came across a fix for T:A's mouse responsiveness, and it's done wonders for making the mouse feel like a 'proper' shooter. The trouble is that it's messed with my aim, and I'm still adjusting. Here's a link.

The price on the HBL is essentially what held me back from buying it. It looks to be an interesting item, but I was not willing to shell out that much considering I also wanted Super heavy and the mines (which were 75k). Its been on a daily deal for me a lot, but mainly 25% off or whatnot, and that was before I had the Thumper / Jug LMG so I had other priorities. If its 50% off or more now I may consider it.
I can't feel any mouse lag, no. And my PC runs the game flawlessly.
My main issue with the game is the menu. The "fade in and out" when you click something, awkward keyboard navigation ... Why is it so hard? Esc is supposed to bring me back one step in the menu. It does that half of the time (other half it brings me to the main menu). And ofcourse - the friend system. Barely any information about your friends on the list. Even when joining a player. Why can't I see the game mode he's playing? And many have addressed the issue with joining a friend - you're not guaranteed to join his team. I want some kind of party system.
I'm quite sure they've heard all of this already...
My deal of the day is the INF's Mercenary skin. Pfft.
I've got ~70k, and I plan to <finally> unlock the Thumper when I hit 100. After that, probably more perks, like Bounty Hunter, Ultra Cap II. Other things to eventually unlock are the SEN's Falcon (as I'm still a terrible shot with the Nova Blaster) or the INF's Stealth Spinfusor (or something other than that smg). I guess I'll eventually unlock Brute, too, but there's no rush on that. Fractal spamming and fatfinding are probably fun, but meh.
Survivalist is an important perk for my part. And I definitely recommend the Jackal if you're using the INF. Stealth spinfusor deals 700 on direct hit and maximum 500 splash.
Brute is fun. The devastator spinfusor made it even more fun.
I already have Survivalist, so that's good. The jackal seems a bit cheesy to me, which is why I'm not sure if I want it or not. I suppose it's alright to get, since its intended for base destruction and skilled player-sticking, but being annoyed by it as a TCN has put a bad taste in my mouth.
Egocentric should also be on my to-get list, as I'm otherwise a pretty mediocre pathfinder. (and even worse in small games where it's me vs some heavy class) It might help me on my rare cap attempts. Close Combat for INFing, I guess. It's amazing to me how many INFs try to backstab me when I Jug, but don't sticky me first to guarantee a kill. So, I get knifed, then just turn around and swat them.

Well, mostly because a sticky will outright kill a INF if he is to close to the blast. I had some fun as DMB by getting as quickly to the INF after he stickies me.
Something else, anyone knows if the weight of a class influence the jetpacking? Better said, does Heavy Weight influence the capabilities of you flying around or does it only affect the blast effect of explosions?
As for egocentric - it's super helpful for capping (gaining speed, that is). Also if you are fighting indoors with JUG or some else explosive maniac.

It also happens if I ever get near the gen room on xfire. (it's worth lobbing mortars down there, but I otherwise wouldn't waste much time defending it) I once had two try it within a span of seconds, resulting in hilarity. One stabs me, so I turn around and melee him to death. Another one hits me right after, and I repeat. It's hilarious when you turn around and they're standing there, just looking at you, as if they're surprised you're still alive. It takes at least two backstabs, even with Close Combat, doesn't it? I just don't see why they try. Maybe there are enough dumb/slow heavies out there to make it seem feasible.
When I get the CC perk, I'll try to see how fast you have to be to sticky/stab a stationary Jug or Dmb.

I think you can oneshot the lighter classes, but not heavies.
Brute as a class still doesn't interest me though, it doesn't really have an interesting/defined enough role to make it seem worthwhile in CTF.
Its not defined, but fatcapping is kind of fun if you can get the hang of the movement. Gladiator and fractals on the flagstand is rather nice for creating an AoE spamfeast to keep people away also.
When I'm speeding along as a Brute I make Harley Davidson noises in my head as a bonus.
