Sorry it's not dead on, but I'm working with short notice.

Say, you're not Franco/Italiano or Norwegian, are you?

I'm fine my little duck egg. hope you are too.

I'm still trying to get people to see the sniper as a useful member of the
team. It seems they have a bad name at the moment.

That's because people don't realize a snipers usefulness. And when
they are useful, they minimize the usefulness with retarded rules like
"NO O SNIPINh!1!!"

No Offensive Sniping.

I simply do not get that. Isn't sniping, by its very nature offensive?
Let's look at traditional defensive melee weapons shall we? Dagger,
Shortsword, Longrange Laser Rifle... waitaminute! Something doesn't
fit there.

Remember the ban on offensive sniping in Vietnam? What?! There wasn't
one? And that was a 1 shot 1 kill gun! In Tribes it takes two whacks
to knock someone down.

That was a war, this is a game. This really was just an attempt to keep pub
games fun for the defense. It stemmed from people who would no nothing but
set up out of bounds somewhere and snipe the opposing defensive players. It
was not really effective for your team and was just game ruining for the
defensive players. Most servers have a group of people who frequent that
server and group decisions were made to institute server rules. It is not
that hard to grasp. If you don't like it go to another server. If a group
of people decide on some arbitrary rules and the owner of the server
institute them, then play along or leave. Similar rules exist for all kind
of conditions like mindless waypoints mortar spam. Its an attempt to keep
the game fun for the many. Have you ever played poker where the dealer got
to set rules? Did you whine about it and say the cards were in the deck to
be used, so you were going to use them anyway you see fit? Personally, I
could care less. I will snipe them back, but it's not a hard concept for me
to grasp and play along with. There is useful sniping and I do it all the
time. There is also mindless sniping and some servers don't allow it. I
don't whine about it either way, no need with the constant whining from
either side of the issue.

It's all just continued hampering of defense, if you ask me. And all
in the name of pacing.

Tribes is like a game of rock, paper, scissors. If there's something
someone can do, there's also a way to counter it. Unless, of course,
you've arbitrarily declared "No O-papering!".

Also, noticing and commenting on an overburdening of "rules" isn't
necessarily "whining" either. Especially in a usenet group. Bitching
about rules on the server in question? Yeah, that's whining.

If I'm on a server with a no O-snipe rule in the MotD, I have no
problem abiding by the house rule. Doesn't mean I think it's sensible
or even reasonable. But if it's got a good game going despite
defensive hobbling, and a nice ping time, I'm in.

To me, too many written and unwritten rules widens the door of admin
abuse. For instance, what is considered offensive sniping? Pulling the
trigger with the business end of the rifle towards the enemy base?
Firing a laser rifle past the midfield point? Where's the midfield
point? There's no yellow broken line with "Mid Field" interspersed
among lines.

[Kickban]

Why'd you do that?

Uh...He was in violation of nebulous rule 136, subsection 2, paragraph
c. "No facing the enemy base for more than 5.3 consecutive seconds."

It really is just a matter of clearing the path for the flag runner.
Crippling long distance defensive measures through a heavy-handed
application of rules and making a quarterback hero of the runner.

In thinking about this, if I was hosting a server, I would set only a
couple-three rules. One of them would be something about hiding out
of bounds to snipe. Hiding out of bounds in general is just so chickenshit.

Another rule I find helpful to gameplay is the "no base rape" rule when
there are very few players. Base rape is just a major time-waster when
there's only a half-dozen players or so.

I don't get that one. Being an annoying bastard is my favorite game,
drawing the defense out away from the flag. Hiding is part of the
objective. If that makes me chickenshit, then I guess I really have seen an
eggplant.

Agreed. That's why I set a minimum player count on what servers I join.
Dueling and deathmatch hold no interest for me. I want a game with
strategic elements. If I kill someone, it's because they're between me and
what I want.

I've already spoken to my wife about this. If I can find a reasonably
well paying and stable job, I'd like to host a Tribes server.

Simple rule. Don't be a dick. (i.e. TK'ing) If it's something else I
have a genuine issue with like OoB sniping or turtling, there are mods
that can make that a painful experience.

The hard thing about running a server is developing a set of regulars to
keep it filled, and to some extent that means having admins to keep the
place tidy. We only admin members, so drop an application in to MA and I
can sponsor you in and you can help run the pub.

HA! That was funny. I've never heard that turn of phrase before.

Every playing style has some use to some degree in Tribes. Which makes
it so much fun. If EVERYONE played exactly like DEBig3, or PRECISELY
like Quixote, or were a dead knockoff of Scratch's method, or we all
played like Mr. K clones, the game would be nothing more than Quake
duck-n-run-bob-n-weave-jump-n-fire deathmatch.

Even when you find that rare cohesive moment on a pub server, it's due
to differing styles coming together. Someone has to be a kill
everything maniac. Someone has to be a cautious sniper. Someone has to
be a patient flagsitter. Someone has to be a farmer/repairer...

And even in a solid clan with voice communication and coordination,
there has to be role flexibility to handle various tactics and styles.
What do we do if we get harried by snipers? How do we stop MPB's from
flanking? Who's on D? Who'll grab? Who'll run 2nd cover? Do we sit and
hunker on a lead?

Honestly, I think sniping is a very important defensive AND offensive
tactic. A team of coordinated, talented, snipers is a thing to be
reckoned with.

Crippling a base with few players is a buzzkill.

Fortunately, there are mods that "turn off" raping until a certain
number of players arrive.

Um, I've located the applicant's page, but only 2 areas are accepting
recruits. Scrimmages and BEML CTF Classic. To which do I apply?

Go for scrims.

The important thing is to become a regular on the forums and TeamSpeak, so
everyone knows you. We're really more a community team than a competition
team, but we recruit to the competition categories.

The site is organized into Divisions representing games, and the Divisions
are divided into Leagues for the leagues we join. We usually have a
"league" for pubbing and scrimming.

To other teams we've become known as the Borg, as when they fold from lack
of interest the surviving members tend to come to us to keep playing. We're
here for the long haul, so we look for members who'll be "lifers".

I just think that there's enough room in the maps to hide, or creep about.
I don't get the need to expand the area by going out of bounds. Maybe it's
a chick thing..........

If it moves and has a red triangle over its head, she's on it with
"extreme prejudice". :D

LOL With my trusty Blaster! :D 
Hey, using a DSL connection now, I might actually be able to hit
something with a disc launcher!! Whoof, I got a lot of stuff to load into
Beastie and check out. I'm getting more and more curious about how
the graphics look and how fast the DSL is compared to the old satellite.

I've taken down more base rapers in spawn with a blaster, flitting around
like an enraged mosquito hawk. They don't seem to take me seriously, and
then they're dead.

Exactly. Imagine a chick running around with a repair pack and
a blaster in her hand- you *really* gonna take her seriously? Most
macho types don't. Big booboo. LOL
