116 Km/h flag grab. I AM THE FASTEST MAN ALIVE! (Super good at skiing. I can outrun most light armors while playing as a medium.)   Noir

It was always like that. They actually made it easier in the new patch...

tribes 1 and 2 disagree

who cares if it's "easier," grinding to get better weapons is incredibly stupid, especially in a competitive, skill based FPS. it's bad enough in stuff like TF2, where it doesn't take very long and the new weapons usually aren't "better."

I think that weapons and upgrades should be unlocked in a fashion similar to the multiplayer aspect of Crysis 2, where you would get upgrades to your items depending on your performance with them. It would have to be tweaked a lot, but the general idea is in there.

Meh I've only managed 144 km/h and crash-splattered into the spire on the other side. But I sure was fast!

Regarding unlocking stuff, it may be ludicrously expensive, but at least you get to keep your stuff once you've unlocked it. I've played games where you can only "rent" weapons instead of buying them. Those are terrible, especially when they run on real-world time rather than gameplay time. Though I do find it kinda silly to have to unlock classes...

The entirety of this post is 100% truth. Blacklight: retribution looked and played great, but it would take around 6 days of nonstop play to get a different color skin for your gun that would last a total of three days. It's so dumb.

i bit the bullet and got the thumper and stealth spinfusor with real world money

all of a sudden my effectiveness skyrockets

seriously though if you do the preorder pack get all the classes first then unlock the thumper and stealth spinfusor they are so much better than defaults

It's really not that bad if you don't pay attention to it... beyond having to unlock the classes themselves, at least. I for one haven't really felt like they're pushing me too hard to purchase something.

This is already an excellent free game. Pay at least $10, which I find the game is easily worth it, and you'll be able to unlock several weapons and gain +50% XP indefinitely. For me that's a very attractive deal.

When the game has more maps, modes, custom servers and stuff, I think it could easily be treated as a full-price game, at which point paying $40 should get you most of the stuff you'd want to play with.
And even then, upgrades to your equipment still can't be bought with real money, so they will always have to be unlocked by playing, though at rather affordable "prices".


So far, I am really fond of the system.
