:shock:

Never expected to hear anything from Epic about UT again. And now, first the NW3 post, and then this. Flak seems rough up things there, nice! 8)

If there's a way to teach the bots, I don't see any reason why there shouldn't be. Biggest hurdle should be quality standards to achieve. Well there's a few guys I'm in contact with right now to get it started.

You guys know that nothing says "I'm still interested" like replying to the posts that Flak is making? It sure shows interest if these things get a flood of fanboy responses.
So long, and thanks for all the fish

F: Does it surprise you that there are still thousands of people who play the game regularly?

DE: Yes and no. When you mentioned that to me the other day it caught me off guard and brought a smile to my face. However, once I started thinking about it more, I started remembering the passion and amazing friendships that grew out of playing that game. It that respect it doesn’t surprise me at all that there are a bunch of good friends out there who get together and still play regularly.
:highfive:

Unreal Tournament just doesn't want to go away .
Every day people are coming back to it .The friendships formed, The tournaments played,Clan we have been in , Good times on Team speak .

I have seen at least 8 people last month ,and 2 last night join our Team Speak who are UT players that are actively playing UT again .
God I love this game .

I guess Unreal Tournament is like Genital Herpes .
Hell the back of the box it is stated (Has us addicted like crackheads on payday )
Isn't that the truth .We are all UT crackheads.
Here is the link to a image on the back of the original box UT was shipped in .

I'm still owning the original blue box I bought my game in which seems to be a pre-GotY edition. :mrgreen:

Problem is that UT is indexed in Germany. You cannot buy it here officially.
