So InstantAction has gone tits-up.

...taking an awesome Tribes-clone, among other games, with it. RIP.

Yeah, I heard a few days ago that a lot of Torque Developers (the kind that make Torque) were let go.

There were discounts popping up in the App developer scene to nab the other Torque Developers (the ones that use Torque).

i was thinking about going back to legions and giving it another shot. haven't played since the beta when there were only 2 maps. guess it's too late now though. if they're smart they'll put it on steam for free.

It had always been free to play. Towards the end they added microtransactions in the form of cosmetic enhancements for your in-game appearance, but nothing that changed the gameplay. Considering where the state that the game was in before these troubled waters, I'd shell out upwards of $15 for it if they put it up on Steam. It was getting really good. I hope that, at the very least, the Tribes IP doesn't sink with FEL.

liked legions initially but then got to the point where I was one of the better players, but people caught on that the grenade launcher was perfect for waiting around till someones boost went out and an easy kill.

Also the rockets timing was screwing up my quake live rockets timing.

Still a shame to see it go, I think they will release it one way or another, would be stupid just to throw away all that code.

you should probably check out tribes next. it's free tribes 2. their site says there are 41 servers up and some of them are full right now. although they may be bots...

Legions ain't dead. IA gave it to the community. It lives on at LegionsOverdrive (dot) com. Should be up and running before Christmas.

Sweet. I was keeping my fingers crossed that the code would get handed off to an entity that respects it.

It's not like this board can't afford a thread over a couple weeks old bumped to the top. Thanks for bringing the beta to my attention.
