No other FPS comes compares. Highest skill ceiling, insane team play.
+3 to this and Shootmania !
This game has potential but at the moment it's unplayable for tournaments.
Still better than COD or Halo.

I dint play it, but from what Ive seen it not practical, sorry but its the fact.
tribes ascend is an awful competitive game
Tribes has such a high skill cap, and there are so many moments for clutch game play to keep the audience on the edge of their seat. Who knows, maybe being accepted into MLG would encourage Hi-Rez to improve their spectating system.
tribes is the be all end all for high skill ceiling competitive play.
The everyday pub game is awful but nothin compares to tribes comp
THIS WOULD BE THE BEST SHIT IN THE WORLD.

An extremely unique experience, no other game requires the speed that the Tribes series does. This game could be the next new competitive eSport, but it will not gain the ability to do so without publicity and more exposure to the general public.

Awesome game with a lot of competitive potential :) love it
Game is crazy awesome to watch when done right. MLG has the right infrastructure and experience to truly showcase Tribes. With proper streaming of player POV's, good use of PIP, getting the right casters, and just generally putting some production value into casts and streams, T:A could really spread it's wings.
Needs some work, But could turn out to be a golden one in terms of competitive play. Could result in an extremely interesting team based, fast paced, skill based FPS.
Imbalanced classes and shit tactics make this game painful on a competitive level....
It needs more work, but since 1999 I've not found anything that gives me the same rush.

Thought the game still needs some balancing work, it's hands down the most exciting fps to watch. Fastpaced action, games turning around in a matter of minutes and the simple fact that the whole team contributes to scoring a cap.
You would change the landscape of first person shooters if you brought T:A into the MLG. It only takes one brave organization such as your own. Are we really happy with the past 10 years and so many games being made so similar?
Kinda imbalanced atm with a few shit tactics but the potential is sky high!

Where are my Central Servers HiRez
It's been well over half a year of me asking you for central servers
Where are they
110 Ping is no Esport
Give me Central Servers
While it does have some issues, its potential is limitless. Huge amount of fun to play/watch and cast.
The problem with Tribes Ascend is ping is an incredible advantage
Tribes is fun
If Hi-Rez makes Ascend more like Tribes 1 was, then it will be ready for competition. As is, Ascend competition is boring, imbalanced, and completely lacks innovation. It's not worth following.
Things that would help: Teams of at least 10 players for competition, destructible inventory stations, naked spawn, remove most of the automatic weapons, team-based max turret count, bigger maps or movement adjustments, etc.
The main reason Ascend has registered more users that T1 copies were sold is because there are way more online gamers now than there were 14 years ago. Hi-Rez just doesn't seem to understand that T1 became legendary because it got it right. They try to change things too much, and destroy the recipe for success.
