    So today I found this game signed up and played a few games. So far I have enjoyed all of them.
    Anyways the game is based on the tribes series wich is obvious. I self played T:V (mostly LAN, online mostly results in a bad experience). This game is a bit different. I can see that the simple and most used weapons in T:V have found there way into this game. And the grappler has been replaced with thise overdrive mechanic. I do not like this mechanic alot because the grappler at least took a bit of aim while this overdrive only has a hp drain but takes no skill whatsoever.

    PUG! Yes I heard someone say it! This game has pugs and I like that. My qeustion to you guys is how do I join these? I liked them alot to do with my friends though LAN games are always pugs, so I did not do anything different.

    So this is just me saying hello. I would really like to join this PUG though I am as rusty as it can get but i know tactics, and considering I already 'owned' some annoying kids I don't think I will do very bad at one. Also how are the clans here are they nice or do they need to be setted-up more? I am a european.

    Just played a PUG and seems I forgot to warn you guys I still play T:V up to this day. I sniped.... and owned a bit. Also only difference is skiing and overdrive to T:V for me so combat wise I think im as good as i am in T:V though the sniper feels weird but works good idk.

    Thats not really right. After you have played a few hours you'll notice that you can do very cool stuff with OD (overdrive) which require skill.
    This is a cool video where you can see some OD cap, and here too.

    Anyway nice to see you as a new player. Have fun!

    No thank you. I am more a lightweight.

    Still did not make me change my mind, all could be done with the grappler in some way or the other. Much harder to do with the grappler and thats why it is so good.

    Maybe but Legions is not Tribes. So you got overdrive and not the grabbler. You don't have to use it if you don't want to.

    Welcome to the community, bud. =)

    I can understand your resentment of Overdrive, but try to keep in mind that harder isn't always better -- it's just harder. FPS+Zs have a tremendous learning curve attached to them, and we're trying to keep Legions from being too inaccessible to newbloods. Sure, you could do a whole lot with the grappler in place of OD, but OD's easier, more graceful, more intuitive, and thusly more fun, especially for newer players.

    It's also not going away anytime soon -- it is called Legions: Overdrive, after all. =)

    An yes I think I wont use a mechanice that drains my life. I bet there are much better routes without OD considering it is a life drainer.

    And thanks everyone for the nice words.

    Hi, Chameleon. Missed your appearance on euro PUG the other day. Heard you did fine and I wish you will keep coming to play with us in the future. Keep in mind that there's a possibility for a PUG every day and we euros have default time set to 20cet for them. Either check #legions.pickup @Quakenet.org IRC server or stop by on TS3.
