hey guys what's up Brandon here and today I'm bringing you some more tribes assent because on the last video it seemed like the overwhelming majority of you seem to enjoy tribes gameplay so I am very happy to bring you some more of it and this gameplay here is on katabatic the ice map and so I'm playing the Pathfinder class here which I think has quickly become my favorite class in the game for the past couple days that's that's almost all I've been playing and at first I really liked the soldier class and the Pathfinder is sort of like a light version of the soldier and I think the reason I've gravitated to the Pathfinder more is because you can just get up to some ludicrous speeds with the light classes you see here I'm going about 200 kilometers an hour that's just not possible with the medium and heavy load outs most of the time and so under most circumstances I think the light classes are your best bet for trying to capture flags and I like the Pathfinder class especially because you have two ways to kind of self propel yourself you have concussion grenades and you also have your spin fuser which you see in my hand now so a few times throughout this gameplay like right here you'll see me use the spin fuser to propel myself across the map and get a quick burst of speed and a lot of people don't realize you can do this or just don't bother to but it's an important tactic for trying to get up to speed and pick up an enemy flag or when chasing down an enemy flag carrier this tactic is invaluable to get yourself up to speed or to make yourself quicker and so that actually brings me into what I'm gonna talk about in this commentary so a few of you had requested that I do a skiing guide for tribes and I thought this might not be a bad idea because the skiing mechanic is something very different from a lot of other games and it's something's pretty unique to tribes and so because of that a lot of people have had trouble understanding kind of how it works or how to get proficient using the skiing mechanic to get across the map and you know accomplish the objectives of the game so I don't claim to be the world's best skier okay but I'm pretty decent at it and so I thought I would try to share with you guys my approach to skiing and how I think you can practice at it and get better so this gameplay I thought was a good example of some of the stuff I want to talk about and you just saw right there the thing we had already talked about a little bit before was self propulsion and so whether it's a disk launcher or a grenade or a bolt launcher or really any explosives that you have you can use to self propel yourself and gain a boost of speed and this is going to be key for a lot of different things the main one being chasing enemy flag carriers like you see me doing now in fact self propulsion is probably the only way that you're going to catch a skilled player running a light loadout and actually the only reason I end up catching this guy is because he stops and decides to try and regen health on the edge of the map which was kind of stupid of him but like I said the only chance you have at catching a really skilled player is to give yourself a boost with your own weapons now you might be saying that's great in all Branden but after I propel myself and I've got some good speed how do I keep that speed going you know as I fly around the map and the easiest way I can think of to explain my philosophy for skiing is if you've ever played the iPhone game tiny wings that's kind of what it's like and what I mean by that is when you're in the air you always want to be aiming to land on a smooth downhill surface then as you're skiing along you want to use your jetpack to propel yourself up hills and as you crest over the hill you repeat that you land on a smooth downhill surface jetpack on the uphill grades and that's how you'll continue to gain speed as you fly around the map and from there it's really just about practice because mastering the technique of skiing on each different map really just requires deep map knowledge so when you're playing just make an effort to focus on the stuff that we've talked about the self-propulsion energy conservation making sure you're hitting the hills at the right spots and over time I guarantee that you'll see yourself improve now make sure you watch this last clip here because you'll see that once you get proficient with skiing you can get around the map really fast I'm able to return our flag pick up their flag and capture it all within the span of a minute now one last thing I wanted to mention is that if you happen to miss this week's episode of the KP mod podcast you should definitely check it out we had an awesome interview with Bart Konigsberg who is the competitive and eSports guru over at high res studios and so we talked a lot of tribes with him the guy is very passionate about the game so you should definitely take a listen I'll include a link in the description below let's see this gameplay is just about finished like I said this last cap is pretty quick we ended up winning this match but some of these maps can go 20 or 25 minutes and I figured I would cut some footage out and just give you the most exciting parts but anyway if you enjoyed this video or if you found it helpful I appreciate if you'd leave the video a like and also leave me a comment let me know if you have any skiing tips of your own or if you have any ideas for other tips style videos that you want me to do let me know I'd be happy to do more of these kinds of things if you enjoy this type of content you can subscribe to my channel and also follow me on Twitter link is below in the details section as always guys thanks for watching and I will see you next time

    Tribes skiing is one of those "easy to learn and hard to master" things. And it's so fun, i wish more shooters would gravitate towards such fast paced gameplay.

    I had to learn to ski the hard way in tribes 1.09 and 1.11 patch on base mod and if the physics engine works the same as it did back then I should be able to own the n00bs and a few exp players. This is exciting! Havent even thought about tribes for over a decade.

    Can you shoot the spinfusor at the peak of an uphill while skiing in order to get a higher height like in TF2 ?

    I use Ultra capicitor 1 / Reach (depends on map)  +  Egocentric for capping
    Rage + Lightweight for chasing and also for Light Defense.

    These are the best I think. And what perks do you use ?
