TA is the way to go I've played Nexuiz and there was hardly any competition I was bored with it after awhile however this game is good for those who are just starting out or for those who enjoy fps such as Unreal and Quake

one more thing.... you obviously play nexuiz because you are not skilled enough to play TA

nexuiz is to noobish/ too easy to win... in TA if you are a sniper you are the most skilled player in the game. you can hit 215 kmh moving targets with no problem at all. the skiing mechanic is what the tribes games unique. oh and this "noob tube" you were talking about is a staple to most mmos... you get a decent wepon in the start so you can survive without this "noob tube" snipers would not survive in any fps

After spending £10:00 souly on the phase sniper rifle just to be trolled with something that does less damage than any other game's sniper (3 shots minimum to kill), in a game where players are generaly harder to hit than in any other game and requires you to litteraly be an aimbot to time the energy recharge the weapon requires with the hit, vs the OHK fuking noob tube that comes as standard for every BK that this game is obviousely taylord for id say that TA is the least competetive game on the planet! check out nexuiz if you want a REAL arena shooter thats worth dying in.

Very excited for this, 10 more minutes...

Having weapon variants to better suit each person's playstyle is a great idea. I'll probably pick up the modified heavy spinfusor, since i tend to get a lot of midairs with brute.

This is also a better option to those who like the standard weapons but want to tweak them slightly, but don't want to spend 100k XP on an entirely new weapon.
