 SS:2845 and tJY: In Sync
Tue Aug 3rd, 2004
Posted by: Mhaddy at 22:34 PM link to this newspost

...well, almost. We mentioned yesterday that the official Starsiege:2845 site received a major facelift. Along with the new look came a plethora of new media including five new weapons, updated Infantry shots, more than 20 new in-game shots, a new wall paper, and even new logos.

To top things off, we have also updated our SS:2845 overview page that was updated with information from the recent Tribal Wars: West event. Even our press coverage page has received a minor, but much needed facelift.

However, due to the overwhelming content rush, it's only natural to miss or misprint a few things. While you're browsing through the newly updated content, if you notice something missing or out-of-line, please give us a holler. You can also take advantage of the gallery's, files' and links' submit features to earn some tJY Tokens :). Regardless though, let us know what you think of the new content and its layout.

 Tribes:V on TechTV
Sun Aug 1st, 2004
Posted by: Mhaddy at 21:28 PM link to this newspost

Our last mention of the Tribal Wars: West G4-TechTV blurb was that some footage from the event would make it onto the airways. Well, some great first-hand commentary from Tribes players, TW-devs, and even Thrax made it in but unfortunately for the Starsiege:2845 crew, no footage was aired. Grab the just under three-minute broadcast from Tribal War (thanks Colosus) or from tJY directly.

Kudos to Cray for the heads up on our forum.

 SS:2845 Preview
Tue Jul 27th, 2004
Posted by: Mhaddy at 20:57 PM link to this newspost

The folks over at have thrown up a preview of Starsiege:2845 based on their viewings at the recent Tribal Wars: West event. A thorough summary of the game and what is planning to be accomplished in it are included; providing a very nice overview of things. Several of the statistics that Steve the reviewer mentioned are new to me, so I'll look into getting them confirmed by the team. Update 12:24am: All facts and figures mentioned in the preview are accurate as of now.

A couple of Scarab images (also seen in the Gamespot movie) that I haven't seen before were released along with the write-up but otherwise nothing new that you haven't seen before. In either event, head on over and check it out!

 Tribal-Wars: Bi-Coastal LAN Party
Wed Apr 7th, 2004
Posted by:  at 20:29 PM link to this newspost

Mark 'old_skull' Szabo has informed me that on April 4th the first ever Bi-Coastal LAN Party revealed.

The First Bi-Coastal Simultaneous LAN Party!

CHANTILLY, VA (April 4, 2004) - Tribal Wars, the largest gathering of Tribes
players on earth, opens a new chapter in LAN parties by holding two
simultaneous, competing LAN parties on either coast of the USA. The party
starts on Thursday, July 22, and concludes Sunday, July 25, 2004.

Although this is the first Tribal Wars to be held, the team planning the
party is no newcomer to the Tribes LAN community. The teams that brought you
five years' worth of fun at UVALAN, the largest single gathering of Tribes
players on earth, and Tribescon, the West Coast's answer to the LAN
sickness, have teamed up to make this super-LAN a reality.

Tribal Wars will have the absolute best competition in any LAN room, along
with some of the community's best personalities. There will be amazing
sponsored tournaments, fantastic prizes, and the best party in the business.

"This is groundbreaking," says LAN organizer Tom "Cheater" Szabo. "For the
first time in history, LAN players at one coast will be able to compete with
players on the opposite coast." 2003's UVALAN 5 sold out to 400 players in
less than 24 hours, and was sponsored by many industry mainstays including
the Tribes gamesmaker Sierra, who showed off builds of their next Tribes
installment, "Tribes:Vengeance".

A sanctioned Tribes 1 and Tribes 2 tournament is tentatively scheduled for
this year, along with several other surprise activities for players. The
featured event will be an East Meets West showdown between the two sites.
May the best coast win!

"There are some great reasons to attend Tribal Wars 2004 this year," said
LAN administrator Mark "old_skul" Szabo. "In addition to a great party, low
ping, amazing machines and amazing people, we're going to be announcing some
more great reasons to attend in the coming weeks before the party." More
information will be released in the coming weeks on the official Tribal Wars

"Tribal Wars is bringing the next evolution to the Tribes LAN party scene,"
says organizer Matt "Colosus" DeWald. "For the first time ever, the two
rival factions of East and West can enjoy a singular event together. This
will truly be a spectacluar event and something you surely do not want to

UVALAN and TribesCon have traditionally been held during the summer months
and has regularly attracted many hundreds of players, gamemakers and
vendors. More information is available at Tribes
