If you're adding lots of gamemodes to OW (as I expect you probably are), I'd like to politely and respectfully request that you don't include either Bombing Run and Double Domination. I really do hope they do NOT feature. If you went back to the original UT'99 DOM, that'd be fine IMO. But not those two. Those are probably the most suckitudinous game modes ever devised. 2k4 has ONS to make up for it, but...yeah. Suckitudinous game modes :P

Yet I expect none of the original game's gamemodes will feature except for DM, so I guess this post is redundant :P

Nevertheless I felt the point had to be made.

We're trying out loads of gametypes, I think about a dozen ATM. Which get to the demo/release is yet to be determined. Vehicles are definately included in nearly every gametype.

That's good news. But you didn't answer my point ;)

Hang on a sec, if you don't like a game mode.. can't you just... not play it?

No BR or DD maps are being worked on currently, so chances are slim you will see either of these two gametypes included. There may be a TeamOrbit variation on these gametypes, but again, they would probably involve vehicle use.

I was forced to play both of those in UT2004's single player ladder. And I do like to play through SP campaigns. I understand your point, but I would hope that I don't have to 'unlock' the good stuff by playing through modes like BR, lol.

But that is good enough news for me, Twrecks :)

imtheone is the new godmode.
I prefer just going slomo .5 and cranking it up till I get the hang. I've played some maps all the way to 1.5 gets pretty intense. Some older UT servers were set up to play at 1.35 as standard, don't lag or you will be fragged :)

Oh ok, I get you now.

Speaking of unlockable stuff, just what kind of unlockable content will there be - Skins and maps? Or whole new modes?

Playing the ladders thru unlocked a few player characters, that's all.
