pappercoffe is right, let's think:
UT is a old game but very fun to play, I do notice everybody I am more a player that look fo fun only. I still play ut and overall series without keeping mind where are playing (wheter offline or online, I do sometimes both more offline than online) I love ALL series with their advantages and limitations (whether is due to Epic failures or the proper tech engine of that season, by the way do you know any company games that does not have any, one failure minimum?, not, right?-). This is I think about those so called "pro" that screwed this game:
1) UT99 was the first of this well know game, its releasing and making by epic-digital extremes were done only thinking in the FUN factor. They were not capable to imagine what huge success would have been this great game. Nobody at Epic games nor Digital extremes could imagine that their game could compete with quake or doom nor they got many sales due to the "addictivity" (this word from addictive word is invented from me, dont look for in the dictionary lol), fun, fast action, mindblowind ideas to modding, etc..music too all gathered to what was this game.
2) I got tired from those babies that demand "hey, hey! This is not what I want!! I want ut99 but with ..with current tech and modern graphics f*ck!" and all that another sort of whining modes like this weapon is nerfed, "this is so -attention dudes to a user forum I read long time ago- fast, please, slown down the speed" etc...here is pappercoffee came to say truly: Nobody seems to remember how was/is played ut if you had still installed this game and still play nowadays. More than one time I got tempted to write in the official forum: "if you dont like utxx please, go and play ut99, b*tch!" so I preferred to keep mouth shut and go on. I bet about 80% people who supposely played that game (it was 15 years when was released, how the fuck people that stopped playing it could it remember exactly how was this game played? lol. Ah and many of them are teenagers now that says they play this game when lately were playing ut2k4 or ut3). You could try by putting a poll with this question: "Did you play ut goty when was released in 2001 or did t play at least?" I swear that about 80% are not playing anymore that game (due realife, or jumped to newer ut versions, etc...).
3) "Pros" came few months when game was released, where they were not been before the community (I remember all playing for fun, no insulting not trolling until....they came in with that obsession promoting tourneys, mainlyall were teenageh with 0% CI). Is here where the way twisted definitively to date, Its like a plague no way to get rid them upon us. I only hope this new version dont repeat the same attitude form a few (the pros) against mayority (casuals, amateurs, community etc). But well its only a hope.
I wil stay playing until death whatever series incluiding series, they saved from a depression years ago thanks to a few of my friend I met platying. Long Live UT
