    Saying the same thing twice there, sorry for the large quote but it puts it into context a little more.

    Still, I must say the game sounds as if its shaping up really rather well, I just hope they don't go overboard on the realism aspect of things. If there is one thing I can't stand it's dying in 2-3 bullets and not having a chance to fight back, which is why Quake games have always appealed to me. :)

    Pretty much the same IMO.

    Anyways, great article, interesting read and I hate you for that! Now I'm even more looking forward to getting my hands on this game. Any news on a demo before release? ;)

    //edit:

    Damn BS... you were about 2 mins faster. :)

    Darn it... that's one of the most annoying things I find about playing games like CS!

    looks sweet though :) when they say the source code comes with it, is that for the game? or just for the map gens/sdks?

    How many of the screenshots were unique?
    Note to the guy who doesn't like one hit kills: the one major thing I didn't like about Enemy Territory was you'd frequently see two guys bouncing round each other shooting, and it was the guy who ran out of ammo first that was killed.
    That's how long it took to kill someone. :hehe:
    That's also why I play TC:E, because one shot under the rim of his helmet with a glock will do it.

    QFT. And you can't move/shoot (only look) during the warmup. Thank God.

    Considering a large portion of the article was dedicated to praising the super-duper-uber-awesome-totally-sweet-mega-kicks-other-graphics-engines'-collective-asses graphics, those 800x600 screenshots don't really do a great job of showing it off. Any chance of getting some 1600x1200 or 1280x1024 on the scene?

    It's called skill, that what made Enemy Territory one of the only games around where aim is everything. You have to be spot on. And if you can't get three headshots on a person, then you are a little noob tbh. When you run out, swap straight to pistol or even knife in the person is low on health.

    That's what I found, it's imperative to have auto re-loading turned OFF, simply because it takes longer to reload than change weapon. :(
    People don't realize that if you needed, you could reload really fast IRL.

    i want this game so badly. I might just save up for that 8800GTS and buy them together when this comes out. oooh how exciting. I will finally be able to stop wasting my time on buggy-crashy-glitchy 2142 servers.

    True story. The best ET:W players (and RTCW players for that matter) were able to annihilate most players in the two or three headshots and never needed to unload unless they were caught off guard. ;)

    Looks nice, I used to play classic ET big time and it was a good game, nice and balenced.

    They say they have easy vehicle control, I hope that means they're not ****ing around with my driving. Ideally they'd have the same system as BF2, which was the best vehicle control I've ever seen (even if it takes a while to fly).

    The weapons are so cool.
