stranded?

beeing stranded is not an option! of you jump out of the vehicle before it blows then fight to your death! taking a step backwards is treason =P

dead people can't use jetpacks... so no need for them hehe

Jetpacks would promote solo play, completely annihilating the concept of this game.

And if you could use a jetpack, who would want to use anything else? Just as in tribes 2, no one uses any other armors except for base raping or maybe defense. If you want to fight at all, you get a light armor and an energy pack, there is simply no other way.

The designers wanted to create a game in which every single combination would have all kinds of uses. Who needs a tank or a reaver to take out opposing armor when someone in a cheap old jetpack could do a better job, buzzing around and tossing rockets?

This game has been very well designed, in my opinion. You COULD go out solo, and get around just fine on your quadbike, and blast a few people before getting run down by a larger group. Or you could join a larger squad, and go off and do something dynamic ^_^

Tribes 2 seems like a pretty horrible comparison to PS to me. All you could do in that game was either cap, or sit on your butt and defend. If you said you were an antivehicle specialist or a demolitions expert, people would just laugh at you and call you a newb However, there are sooooo many roles to fill in PS, very few people will become adept at them all, and most of the playerbase will be perfectly happy specializing in one role and becoming well known for it. I for one would choose the one MAX pilot that everyone knows and respects over the l33t idiot that comes stomping along and says "OMG OMG I KAN mAXor and HAXXOR and [email protected]"

honestly. please read the thread before you reply.

its been stated several times that it wont happen. i was just pointing out some things that could be done.

had you taken time to read the thread, you would have noticed that it was never said that it would be like a Tribes jetpack that would send you hovering about all over the place for long periods of time...


--------------------

that being said, its pretty obvious by your comments on the gameplay of T2 that you

A) suck at T2
B) never played competitively
C) suck playing comp
D) have never played the game

Everyone is making way too big of a deal out of jetpacks. It's not like they're going to implement them anyways but everyone still seems to want to argue about it. The only team concept in the game that might even be hurt would be the need for a transport pilot. Even in tribes you still need to play as a team if you want to win. Jetpack didn't ruin that at all. If you think going off by yourself in a game is going to achieve anything you're going to get owned. Jetpacks aren' t a neccesity but they might be a welcome addition on some armors, not all but some.

That being said, it is pretty obvious by your comments so far that you:

A) Are 14 years old.
B) Think you are Gods gift to the forums.
C) Think that every single post is a direct assault on your precious fragile ego.
D) Think that anyone even gives any credit to the junk you spew

Thank you, drive through.
