So, quick update on Tribes: Ascend.
The game has a very small community left, and with no official support from Hi-Rez hackers are more common than they used to be (though server owners are usually pretty good at kicking them out when they see them). The game is no longer searchable on Steam, however...
You can still look up Tribes: Ascend's Steam page on a search engine, and the servers are still running. I played a few matches the other day, and the day after, and they were just about full matches. There's a prime time when people get on somewhere between 1200 and 1600 HST, and if you really liked Tribes, know that the game isn't dead, at least not entirely. You can still play it, it just takes a little diligence.
We can pray that Hi-Rez will make another Tribes game, but until then, I hope to see you in the Wilderzone!
