The nali rabbit doesn't go for the throat like in Monty Python.


Not enough car chases.


You never hear anyone say...."Woman down!"


There is no warning sign about vertigo outside the teleporter to the top on Face. Obvious oversight and lack of realism.


Needs more cowbell.

Oh, that's right, you weren't around back then.

As part of a favor, for testing a bunch of stuff for him, JackGriffin "paid" me by taking a request for anything I'd want for UT.

I asked him to make me a Caerbannog Bunny (that's what it's called) and he did.

You can find it on this map:

On my server I have a player by the name of "Paula" (along with her many aliases).
Also heard this from another player "hook" as well.
They have said:
"I could careless about winning, I only play for fun".
But my response is:
Yeah, but losing all the time isn't that much fun is it?

No one would know, because most everyone who dies never plays again.

My chief complaint is the re-spawning technology that Liandri uses isn't actually re-spawning any of the players. It's just a very fast organic 3-D printer. Years upon years of players in the Tournament have only played up until the point that they died, and then what's essentially a clone took their place after they kicked the bucket.

This came out in a relatively recent link on a financial report from Unreal Tournaments' HQ which showed ongoing human and alien players weren't being paid because the clones have an in-born program that doesn't let them complain about not receiving payment as they are all property of Liandri Mining Corporation.

They only players that are repeatedly playing are the robots. Even Xan, who has no organic parts left, has been rebuilt over and over again.

Winner. It's the silliest.

People shooting him in a first person shooter. That's classic.

That has to be the silliest complaint! I came here to add some more silly complaints but after reading this one, I got nothing.
