I too come from a "base" background. 90% of my playing time in T1,T2,TV & TA has been "base" except I perfered V2 in T2. I am looking forward to Base Midair but until that becomes more popular, I will play what is available as I truly love this game. I am a true die hard for this "tribes"game type. I played every version until it was dead. heck I am still playing TA pugs every saturday night and some mondays. long live FPSZ!
