Tribes Ascend: Going Competitive

Exciting, exciting news recently, as NASL has picked up Tribes!
 
NASL being of course a pretty big league in Starcraft and Heroes of Newerth decided to pick up it’s very first FPS game, and in my opinion they certainly made a great choice in where to start off. Now, this isn’t exactly brand new news, but it isn’t something to ignore. Tribes has always been a very competitive franchise and recently with NASL picking it up (in BETA mind you!) it shows the true potential of the game already. Not to mention its amazing track record with previous Tribes games.
 
We’re already seeing quite a few of old school Tribes teams signing up but getting plenty of newbloods and well known teams from other games, such as Tao being a new team but getting off to a decently strong start and making an impression on me, personally.
 
Recently in the past few years e-sports have definitely picked up, and if you’re a fan of any e-sport you may be interested in watching some matches. Tribes is a game of speed and precision, and by that I mean it doesn’t get boring to watch since there is almost constantly something going on. Each team having teams of 7 and massive amounts action and land to cover, in a good ol’ fashioned Capture The Flag style gameplay. What’s not to like?

    This game has a ton of potential and seems to be going in the right direction. I am definitely looking forward to watching some matches in the future.

    Ugh, now I have to deal with moronic competitive players in Tribes, too? *shakes head*

    I don’t know how them being competitive players makes the game any more different, I’ve yet to play with a comp player from Tribes who has been completely obnoxious. (and yes I have played with a few)

    Besides, the comp players will rarely be playing on the pubs. They should be no bother to casual players.

    There are more than a few examples of what I’m talking about right here in our community. It’s probably a case of a few bad apples spoiling the whole bunch.
