How and when did you discover Tribes?

It had to have been in and around 1998 when it was first released. I'd just gotten my first PC. It was an absolute monster of a machine. Top of the line all the way: Pentium 2, 400mhz, 128mb of ram, 20gb HD, zip drive!, dvd drive, and an ethernet port (even though DSL wasn't even available in my area at the time)! At the time the first online shooter I came across was Rainbow Six... then Counter-Strike. Then, a friend of mine told me he found a game better than CS. He gave me a burnt CD with it to try it out and that was that. Tribes became my favorite game and is still in my top 5 to this day.

Man DSL sucked. Top of the line at the time but it always enraged me. Kinda funny hearing Pentium 2, zip drive, etc. as an absolute monster of a machine now haha. I played RB6 too..can't remember which one. Rainbow Six Siege is awesome now though, great fps.

Wow people still alive I see. My brother Kilo Jinx and Desperado and a couple of his friends started playing in college. Eventually I got into it and just became a cap GOAT ahha. We started [HHH] and then eventually switched over to =KiD=. Miss playing with you guys though. Especially when having cap partners, such as Moons and Kattfi$h. Beast Mode I tell you. Loved the feeling that there wast a flag i couldn't catch haha good times.

Greetings,


     It was February of 1999 and I was visiting friends in Bellingham,Washington and we all went to Mainstreet computers where they had multiple stations set up with internet. My brother Paul invited me to look at this new game and he said it was great and I had to try it. It of course was Tribes and I played one of the first Insomniax servers, I believe the server was called GameMonger. I tried it and as has well been said before I was hooked! I never saw a game so challenging and interactive with so much versatility. Every weekend I was not working, I drove to Bellingham to see my two Brothers and we all met at Main Street computers. Great Memories that will always be with me, I appreciate whoever started this thread.

In high school, someone made copies of the T1 disc and handed it out to people to create Mi6.
