I played so much tribes with the ultra renegades mod it wasnt even funny. If they would have incorporated that mod into tribes 2 it would have been a hit. The only problem was it was a buggy mess and the modders gave up in frustration or moved on to other things. It was cool but not the same,.

My friends and I played Tribes 2, but we went back to UT '99 shortly thereafter.
Tribes 2 is one of my favourite games ever, great to see the fans keeping the game alive with the likes of TribesNext.
In the last few years I've mostly played Tribes 2 offline against the bots, which are very good on some of the custom maps you can download (especially those by Laggalot). I played this TribesNext version the other day online and spent a few hours jetpacking around and shooting people, a lot of fun.
The game does take a little while to learn but that's because there's so much more you can do than in the average multiplayer shooter, with all the various player classes, weapons, packs, turrets, vehicles etc. available.
While I've sometimes been distracted for a while by other newer, better-looking shooters over the years like Battlefield 1942/2, the UT series and Quake Wars, in the end I've always gone back to Tribes 2.

When I'm not trying to crash my ai base server editing ai code, my UltraRenegades server is running. Look for Blair Lag Project. If you want to play against some really good ai, jump in when my base server is running.
Love Tribes 2 :)
Used to play it a lot, at least when i got a good enough computer to run it, since when it came out it needed a monster rig to play it ;)
4 days ago i tried to see if there were any players left online, we used to have a few big servers where playing this baby was great fun :D
Thanks for the information, didnīt know they had shutdown auth servers.
At least like this we can get back playing like we did before :D
This game is awesome and as soon as you learn the basics, itīs all fun and teamplay.
I think equily of tribes 1 and 2..both are absolutely great
I might dig my disc out and let'er rip again.

If you're going to play either Tribes or Tribes2, you need to patch both of them, as the official game master servers are offline permanently. You can get the patch from the link to Tribes2, comes with it's own installer. The links above show you where to get the goods for Tribes2, here is where one can get Tribes:
This dl should already be scripted to see the alternate master servers.
