I was recently contacted by some folks at Hi-Rez Studios, and they'd like to hold a Tribes: Ascend play night for the Arqade community and possibly follow it with a SMITE closed beta key giveaway. I think working with Hi-Rez could be really fun, and just wanted to gauge interest here before I go ahead with planning out specifics.

Let me know your thoughts!

    Count me in!!!!! :) – James Jul 19 '12 at 17:36
  • I think this is a great idea, but I probably won't be able to play. I was invited to the Tribes beta before it even released and I haven't been able to get it all downloaded yet. My internet sucks. – GnomeSlice Jul 19 '12 at 17:38
  • Maybe I'm paranoid, but what's in it for them? – Ronan Jul 19 '12 at 17:38
  • This sounds like fun, actually. – Frank Jul 19 '12 at 17:38
  • To anyone interested, I will say this: SMITE is a ton of fun. =3 – Niro Jul 19 '12 at 17:42

    @RonanForman Since we have such an active community, it's a great opportunity for them to get more people playing their games and excited about the SMITE release. – Lauren Jul 19 '12 at 17:46
  • I'm in, as long as no one rages at me for enjoying my Plasma Gun. – KOVIKO Jul 20 '12 at 4:16

    A good friend of mine is in a management position at Hi-Rez and I actually attended the Tribes: Ascend launch party, so I can vouch firsthand - those guys are awesome. – Shinrai Jul 20 '12 at 16:26
  • I'd love it! Ascend is a lot of fun! – SaintWacko Jul 24 '12 at 16:36
  • I'm following up with this; is this still in the works? – Frank Nov 16 '12 at 19:58

First of all, of course I'm interested, why wouldn't I be.

Secondly, normally when the community play games together, we play at 6 UTC, as this is evening in Europe and afternoon in America, so this is the best time to play on weekends.

And finally, I am recording when we play and sticking it on our YouTube channel, that's final.

  • Awesome, I will keep these things in mind when planning it out with them :-) – Lauren Jul 19 '12 at 17:53
  • Haha, I also record when we play (And I am not passed out in bed still :D) – James Jul 19 '12 at 18:06
  • Arqade has a youtube channel? – Alok Jul 20 '12 at 10:50
  • @Alok It's a community channel, youtube.com/arqadecommunity – Ronan Jul 20 '12 at 12:31
  • I'd think that if they don't want SMITE beta footage released, we could make the idea of recording the play sessions a little less "final". – Sterno Jul 20 '12 at 14:13
  • @Sterno I was referring to the Tribes: Ascend pay night, of course I need to check with the devs about footage before posting anything from a closed beta. – Ronan Jul 20 '12 at 14:16
  • Cool, just wanted to make sure! – Sterno Jul 20 '12 at 14:17
  • I'll make sure to bring it up with them to see if it's ok. – Lauren Jul 20 '12 at 14:21
