I was also a 56k modem player LOL. If anyone remembers [POE]-Gaspode or Speed Racer's Place server I was on there all the time.
I remember getting high speed later and playing like "wow, chain gunning actually hits people now" (too bad the game was ruined by cheaters by that point ... before the LastHope patch came out)
The feeling of nailing air shots in Tribes 1 (as we called them at first...before for some reason the MA term was adopted) was one of the coolest things I've ever experienced in gaming.
